Why Our Schools Need EdTech Professionals

Why Our Schools Need EdTech Professionals | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

The professional workforce has been quick to adopt new technology tools. We readily accept that tablets and smartphones, teleconferencing and social media are now essential fixtures of the workplace for millions across the globe. Yet we've been slow in extending these advances to our schools, and in particular our K-12 schools. While many children's home lives are abuzz with the same platforms and devices as the 21st century workplace, school just hasn't kept pace, and in many classrooms pedagogies are barely more inclusive of new technology than they were in the 1980s.

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School | eSkills

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School | eSkills | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

Fueled by an incredible demand in the workforce for proficient programmers and the need to teach critical thinking skills, the coding movement in schools has exploded. Furthermore, we all communicate through technology, so we should at least know the basic premise of coding because the gadget sitting in our pocket, or on our desk, should not be a mysterious black box to us or our students. Just like writing, multimedia, art, and music are mediums to show ideas, coding can be another form of expression.

5 misconceptions about blended learning

5 misconceptions about blended learning | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

"Blended learning is transforming roles of teachers and students in many classrooms and has become a trendy buzzword in education in recent years. Yet, for all its trendiness and efficacy, the true meaning of what blended learning means has somehow gotten lost in all the buzz. This has become a term that has many meanings to many different stakeholders. I want to use this blog post to start the conversation around some of the most common misconceptions I encounter regarding blended learning, with hopes that we can demystify this very solid instructional approach."

The Benefits of Students Teaching Students Through Online Video | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

"Videos have already become an important part of modern education, whether through well-known education platforms like Khan Academy or content created by teachers for their students’ use. Video tutorials can help students with questions on homework or test preparation. However, students are finding the value in creating tutorial videos themselves for other students."

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.

 

===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===

 

Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

Diving Into Project-Based Learning? Heed these 7 Warnings | Innovatieve eLearning | Scoop.it

"BEWARE. Creativity can be dangerous. Dangerously awesome, that is.

 

You see, creativity is not immune to the challenges that bond forward thinkers and risk-takers to their authentic ideas and handiwork. Au contraire, my colleagues, the hazards of embarking on a journey with your students to demonstrate mastery of curricula and to showcase talent can be likened to skydiving from 13,000 feet out of a perfectly functional Cessna 182."

Although this is about higher level coursework than middle school, the social and collaborative importance of online learning is even more paramount at the middle grade level. When you choose a computer-based curriculum, look for ways that it allows students to work together or interact with their knowledge.
