Why Our Schools Need EdTech Professionals

Why Our Schools Need EdTech Professionals | innovation in learning | 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.

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy for The Web is another of our most popular posts of 2016. The visual features a number of key educational web tools to digitally operationalize Bloom's thinking levels. For each of these thinking levels ( creating, evaluating, analyzing, applying, understanding, and remembering) we came up with five web tools that better correspond with it. Our selection process is entirely based on our long-standing experience of reviewing educational web tools. We invite you to check it out and share with your colleagues.

When Teachers and Technology Let Students Be Masters of Their Own Learning | #LEARNing2LEARN #LEARNingByDoing

When Teachers and Technology Let Students Be Masters of Their Own Learning | #LEARNing2LEARN #LEARNingByDoing | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Mastery learning is the idea that students should adequately comprehend a given concept before being expected to understand a more advanced one. This idea has a long tradition in educational theory and research. In 1919, superintendent Carleton W. Washburne in Winnetka, Illinois, showed that students could advance at their own pace if they mastered a concept before moving on to something more complicated.

 

Years later, building on Washburne’s work, educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom coined the term “mastery learning.” In 1984, in Bloom’s seminal study, “The 2 Sigma Problem,” he showed that mastery-based one-on-one tutoring is two standard deviations more effective than conventional instruction. (That means it would take the average for a cohort of students from the 50th percentile to the 98th percentile!). Ever since, educators have sought ways to make mastery learning available to all students.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, December 22, 2016 1:16 AM

Some key points of the future learning models are:

  • Focussing on a diversity of learning models that incorporate both physical and digital domains instead of a closed classroom.
  • Having school buildings that act as open learning spaces for the local community.
  • More of a focus on individual learning paths and building on the students’ personal strengths.
  • Allowing students to learn also from the real world and through online media.
  • Offering flexibility in terms of when and where learning happens.

Studying With Quizzes Helps Make Sure the Material Sticks

Studying With Quizzes Helps Make Sure the Material Sticks | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
This phenomenon — testing yourself on an idea or concept to help you remember it — is called the “testing effect” or “retrieval practice.” People have known about the idea for centuries. Sir Francis Bacon mentioned it, as did the psychologist William James. In 350 BCE, Aristotle wrote that “exercise in repeatedly recalling a thing strengthens the memory.”

But the testing effect had been mostly overlooked in recent years. “What psychologists interested in learning and memory have always emphasized is the acquisition part. The taking [information] in and getting it into memory,” Roediger said.

Laypeople — and even experts — tend to think of human memory as a box to be packed with information.

 

“Memory is dynamic, and it keeps changing,” McDaniel said. “And retrieval helps it change.”

Chris Carter's curator insight, November 23, 2016 9:53 PM
I recently presented at EduTECH Asia, Singapore, concerning the power of recall-based learning. Essentially, get the information once (encode-learning), then test yourself repeatedly. The 60+ studies and meta-studies that I examined in preparation for my presentation all tell the same story. Recall-based learning (quizzing) is at least 400% more effective than re-studying in the traditional way. the keys are:
1. frequent quizzes
2. low-stakes quizzes
3. Immediate feedback
4. Interleaved quizzing (quizzing over time, and across units)
5. Pre- and Post-summative assessment reflection

How to Engage the Students Who Need It Most: Gamification | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
That’s the truth about gamification: it will not make your kids smarter or perform better on tests. Gamification is about increasing motivation and engagement. Once you have a kid’s attention, it is still up to the teacher to deliver a solid, meaningful lesson. Gamification is not a magic bullet, nor does every student need it, but the students who benefit the most from a gamified classroom just so happen to be the ones who most need motivation and engagement.
