A transformative learning experience fundamentally changes our understanding of what it means to learn and what it means to work together with others to learn.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 5, 11:15 AM

Technology is not a tool. Heidegger proposed it involves two intertwined definitions: human/anthropological and technological/instrumental. He proposed that technology is about a way of thinking, acting, and speaking about, with, and through the tools humans use. In that sense, the line about technology being transforming is accurate. When the two definitions are separated, that is not the case.

Wilko Dijkhuis's curator insight, February 6, 3:32 AM

Nice example of how a persons life and learning strategies became transformed by an experience at a young age (in this particular case it was an encounter with primitive computer technology, but in general it  could have been anything: e.g. hearing the saxophone played well for the first time, or "seeing" the mother of god in a cave)  

 

Alas, also a typical example of unwarranted educational proselytizing. The man is so enthusiastic about his new insight that everybody has to hear the good news. Even worse, everybody has to convert and repent. The idea that Catholicism, Jazz or technology enhanced project based learning  does not work for everybody, never enters the man's mind.

 

Lets stop with this kind of "inspirational" stories in educational design. Lets stick to science (mainly cognitive and social psychology). I know it is boring, but it is our best shot at finding out what works for whom under which circumstances.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

Build metacognition through the use of flipped learning. Grant Wiggins states metacognition is the key to students internalizing reading strategies. The top-down approach of just teaching the strategies has proven ineffective.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, January 29, 9:06 AM

We keep chugging along, fussing about the old model but making few significant changes other than rearranging desks in the classroom, tossing some technology at teachers, fretting about flipped and blended classrooms, worrying about integration of SAMR or the current cool thing, and wringing our hands over the digital divide. But mostly it feels like we're churning though occasionally tilting in the right direction.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 29, 10:49 AM

Reform suggests that all we do is rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking ship. People from a distance, including the ubiquitous consultants who spend little or no time in real classrooms, rearrange classrooms, silence teachers' voices, and erase teachers from their very performance. Or, that is the impression given. When we combine Derrida's deconstruction and Dewey's reconstruction perhaps we can rethink what transforming classrooms and pedagogy can mean?

Jesus Sandoval's curator insight, February 6, 5:26 AM

For many reasons I agree with what Sugata Mitra says about replacing certain education topics such as reading, writing and arithmetic with other beneficial ones such as comprehending, communicating and computing. In today’s modernized society skills such as communication and understanding technology off the palm of one’s hand is very beneficial when looking for a well paid job. Once a student enters high school these skills (communicating and computing) should be strengthened. It will only benefit the students down the road. What is the point of teaching students how to write with correct punctuation and proper grammar when they can simply turn on  grammar check when typing on a computer? The point is that machines and devices have been developed to do one’s thinking for them. The best option is to teach students how to work with these devices and machines (computing) and not much writing and reading anymore. The world is developing way too quickly to be focused on perfecting one’s writing and reading skills.
