Preguntar, fomentar la interacción, usar la clase invertida... hay muchas maneras para generar motivación, sentido de pertenencia ante el saber y, sobre todo, un pensamiento crítico y creativo

tuXccoaching's curator insight, January 14, 8:23 AM

Si queremos un cambio en nuestra educación, debemos basarlo en el aprendizaje del pensamiento crítico.

 

 

El pensamiento crítico en el alumno es crear esa forma de pensar mejorada que se consigue a través de una acción reflexiva,mediante el establecimiento de preguntas ante situaciones o problemas, llegar a conclusiones y buscar soluciones, mediante evaluaciones y comprobaciones bien razonadas.

 

 

 

El alumno debe aprender a pensar con una mente abierta, verificando todas las soluciones y analizando sus perspectivas,interactuando con los demás, esto nos dará como resultado un pensador crítico y ejercitado.

 

El pensamiento crítico implica movimiento, proactividad y participación.

 

 

Para conseguir este objetivo debemos motivar a los alumnos a pensar críticamente, mediante, la innovación del docente, crear un buen ambiente en el aula, facilitar buen feedback, reconocimiento de logros y promover la creatividad.

 

 

Y como dice Jean Piaget...

 

 

"El objetivo principal de la Educación es formar hombres capaces de hacer cosas nuevas que no repitan simplemente lo que otras generaciones han hecho, hombres que sean creativos,que tengan inventiva y que sean descubridores.


El segundo objetivo de la Educación es formar mentes capaces de ejercer la crítica, que puedan comprobar por sí mismas lo que se les presenta y no aceptarlo simplemente sin más"

Best Practices by Teachers for the Flipped Classroom

Best Practices by Teachers for the Flipped Classroom | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
List of some of the best practices by teachers for the Flipped Classroom.

Via Gust MEES
Alfredo Corell's insight:

The Flipped Classroom approach is been widely implemented in schools and colleges around the world. It is even considered as one of the greatest achievements of 21st century education.

The concept behind it is to reverse the traditional classroom practices with the aid of technology. Students access the already prepared lecture materials at home, in advance of the class and in the class they engage in structured class activities to work through problems with their teachers’ help, further their knowledge and learn through collaboration with fellow students. For the Flipped model to be successful, teachers before its implementation need to assess whether it is appropriate for their curriculum and students. They need to see if their students will be receptive to the new learning environment and upon implementation and use, teachers should employ effective practices to keep the model functioning successfully.

Flipped learning advantages

Tammy Morley's curator insight, January 9, 1:32 AM

Love the idea of flipped learning - so much potential.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, January 28, 9:20 PM

Flipped classroom is a classroom in which students view the lecture components of the class at home, then work with the teacher in class on projects and what previously would have been called homework.


What a flipped classroom model does?
• Students watch lectures at home at their own pace, communicating with peers and teaching via online discussions.
• Concept engagement takes place in the classroom with the help of the instructor.

MOOC Fad is Over: Long live Synchronous Online Learning

MOOC Fad is Over: Long live Synchronous Online Learning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Like with so many fads, MOOC's are coming under intense scrutiny. New research by MOOC Research and funded by the Gates Foundation shows mooc fad is over. (New post: The Fad of MOOC's is over: Synchronous online learning comes forward.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Is this the begining of the end?

Is this the end of the trend?

Some universities are planning their future MOOCs while others consider them as a past and useless tool?

 

On the other hand, the title of this assay could be misleading: what about the good quality offered asynchronous online learning courses? why the reflexion is that after MOOC online education should be only "synchronous"???? On my opinion, one of the most powerful characteristics of online education is the point of 

asynchronicity.

And since I'm writing a title for the same book series on massive open online courses, I've been trying to similarly define MOOC in a way that would clarify what should be covered by that term and what shouldn't.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

"So if all of our empirical attempts to define a MOOC are ending up in contradiction or absurdity, perhaps we should embrace a definition that puts purposeful educational research and experimentation at the heart of the MOOC project and then take a look at who gets to be (or stay) in the club and who has not yet paid the entrance fee." by Jonathan Haber

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Research shows that interests powerfully influence our academic and professional choices. When we're interested in a task, we work harder and persist longer, bringing more of our self-regulatory skills into play.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Weaker learners may need more of this assistance to find and maintain their interests, while stronger learners can be pushed in the direction of increasing autonomy and self-direction. The goal in each case is to cultivate interests that provide us with lasting intellectual stimulation and fulfillment, interests that we pursue over a lifetime with vigor and zest.

Technology can open doors, expand minds, and change the world. That may be true, but it's not the panacea that it's been made out to be. As much innovation as the iPad may bring to the classroom, it's not going to replace a teacher anytime soon.

¿Por qué cada día hay más separación entre lo que las personas deberían aprender en escuelas y universidades, y lo que realmente aprenden?

RUEPEP's curator insight, October 7, 2013 4:56 AM

"Aspectos informales como la curiosidad, la motivación  o la pasión no tienen absolutamente ningún papel en la educación formal. Sin curiosidad, motivación o pasión no va a haber nunca innovación, cambio, nueva mentalidad, TICs o revolución educativa."


Ésta es sin duda una de las razones de más peso. La falta de motivación e interés (por parte de estudiantes pero también de docentes, en muchos casos), es causa del fracaso del sistema educativo actual, pero a su vez consecuencia, lo que genera un círculo vicioso.


La innovación y apertura hacia una educación más participativa e inclusiva debe realizarse desde los niveles de educación más básica. Las nuevas tecnologías suponen un medio fundamental para llevar a cabo esta (r)evolución educativa, pero no van a solucionar todos los problemas por sí solas. Es necesario que los docentes tengan la formación necesaria para introducir cambios e innovaciones, pero sobre todo es imprescindible que transmitan a los estudiantes su pasión por enseñar, pero también por no dejar nunca de aprender.

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014

Three Social Trends That Will Influence Education in 2014 | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

There are patterns within the trend predictions for 2014 that are worthy of paying attention to. There is strong, if not overwhelming evidence that behaviour patterns of students, educators, employees and professionals are moving towards the use of social tools for learning, working and teaching. Collaborating seamlessly face-to-face and at a distance, bringing the human element to virtual interactions, and personalized learning will prevail in 2014; each facilitated by technology. But it’s not going to be about the technology, it will be about making connections by voice and/or visual, contributing to new knowledge, and learning with and from others—all mediated through social media. It will be the behaviours of students, lifelong learners and educators—their use of technology, specifically social media applications that will influence education in the upcoming year.

 
Via Dennis T OConnor
Alfredo Corell's insight:

Conclusion
Though we can predict and make an educated guess what the year 2014 will hold for education, we won’t really know until we are in it—knee deep. The year 2012 named by the New York Times as the Year-of-the-MOOC, shook the foundations of education, and no one saw it coming. Will social media influence education by increasing collaboration, humanize the learning experience, and support personalized learning in 2014? Time will tell.

Miguel Zapata-Ros's curator insight, November 15, 2013 6:11 AM

Fragmento:

"El modo en el cual están organizados los planes de estudios es un área fuertemente olvidada del desarrollo del curriculum. La situación más frecuente es aquella en la cual un plan de estudios consiste en una suma de diferentes disciplinas sin relación entre sí. Se deja a las disciplinas individuales la decisión sobre lo que es importante o no para el conjunto del plan de estudios. El resultado es normalmente una amalgama con sesgos importantes, dependiendo de la

idiosincrasia de los individuos que siguen el programa. Resulta cuestionable que un individuo o un sólo departamento puedan tener una buena perspectiva de las necesidades del curriculum
como un todo (Harden, Sowden y Dunn, 1984). Cuando a los profesores individualmente se les pide que definan sus objetivos educativos, normalmente existe un gran desacuerdo, incluso en
una misma disciplina (Scherpbier, Schijven, van den Wildenberg, 1993). No es sorprendente que se haya encontrado que no pocos planes de estudio estén sobrecargados con materias deescasa relevancia y duplicación de contenidos (Starr, 1982). Es responsabilidad del estudiante y generalmente del estudiante sólo, asimilar y sintetizar estos contenidos, integrándolos en un
conjunto de conocimientos necesarios para solucionar los problemas específicos de una profesión futura.

El marco organizativo de muchos centros de educación superior  refuerza y mantiene esta situación. La estructura de sus departamentos concede normalmente una total autonomía a éstos y a los profesores que los integran. Éstos pueden compararse a pequeños reinos de taifas, cada uno de ellos con absoluta soberanía. Esta situación es extremadamente difícil de cambiar. Esta organización apenas deja lugar a cualquier tipo de coordinación o renovación educativa y tiene la tendencia natural a mantenerse en este status quo (Darling-Hamond, Wise y Pease, 1983)."
