Mobilizing Knowledge to Create Convenient Learning Moments

Mobilizing Knowledge to Create Convenient Learning Moments | Innovation in education | Scoop.it

Chunks, bits and short modules make learning more manageable and easier to integrate into long-term memory. Long classroom or web-based training courses may accomplish the function of training, but rarely achieve desired retention rates. Instead of just dumping information on the learner, employees are expecting the content to be easy to find, relevant and digestible in the way their brains process information.

When so many new technologies promise to transform education - what role is left to the teacher?  Why is the teacher still important?  This powerful clip effectively presents compelling arguments for the importance of teaching students in a 'social' classroom setting - with reference to 'how' students learn; making the best of all types of tools to aid what goes on 'in the student's head'.

Making The Shift To Mobile-First Teaching

Making The Shift To Mobile-First Teaching | Innovation in education | Scoop.it

"When smartphones first became popular, the struggle was to shrink Internet Explorer to the size of a playing card. The internet browser was the de facto app installed on every computer—it allowed you to browse the web. For many, the web browser is a computer. (See Google Chromebooks.)

 

It quickly became clear that squeezing desktop actions on handheld technology was backwards. Mobile-first thinking changed things. Facebook became mobile-first—which meant that it’s designed to not just be accessed on your phone, but work better on your phone. Websites are often now responsive, scaling to the size of your screen."

Scientists Turn Game in Education Into Immune System Lesson - Gamification Co

Scientists Turn Game in Education Into Immune System Lesson - Gamification Co | Innovation in education | Scoop.it

he human body’s immune system works as a complex network whose different parts coordinate to fight off a wide range of threatening pathogens. But educators run into challenges bringing textbook teaching about the immune system to life. Ink and paper just don’t do justice to explain the complexity and the interactivity of the immune system at work.

Scientists have teamed up with game developers and engineers to develop a new game that shows – and teaches – how the immune system works. ImmuneQuest, the latest example of games in education, was developed with financial support from the National Science Foundation.

Why Games May Become the Education of the Future

Parents and teachers are often wary of letting kids spend time playing video games, and would rather they spend time playing outside or reading. But a number of game developers are introducing exciting mods of popular games like Minecraft and SimCity into the classroom and re-imagining how video games can support traditional educational objectives, like learning about ecology, math, and physics.…

It is imperative that we get kids excited to learn these days, and games may be one of the most effective ways to do it. Teachers are now keen to inspire children to take their learning home with them too - perhaps a math based game they have been playing in class is so fun that they want to continue playing at home? This extends their learning time to outside of school hours - and doesn't seem like a chore! Homework in the form of online quizzes and tasks which can be digitally marked instantly makes a better experience for kids and teachers! Less marking and instant gratification for students!

[eBook] Teaching in a Digital Age (Tony Bates)

[eBook] Teaching in a Digital Age (Tony Bates) | Innovation in education | Scoop.it

In the book, I identify:

the external developments that are putting pressure on university and college teaching,
the day to day implications for instructors, teaching assistants, and students themselves
some of the ways that instructors and institutions are successfully responding to such pressures,
a set of strategies for redesigning your teaching that will help handle these pressures in a positive way.

Although the book contains many practical examples, it is more than a cookbook on how to teach. It looks closely at the nature of knowledge, and how that results in different approaches to teaching
the science behind how students learn best, the features that distinguish between different technologies from an educational perspective, and from this the implications of using different types of technology for teaching some alternative ways to design your courses so that they better meet the needs of your students some suggestions for managing your teaching work load.

In other words, the book examines the underlying principles that guide effective teaching in an age when everyone,and in particular the students we are teaching, are using technology. I provide you with a framework for making decisions about your teaching, while understanding that every subject is different, and every instructor has something unique and special to bring to their teaching.

In the end, though, the book isn’t really about you. It’s about you helping your students to develop the knowledge and skills they will need in a digital age: not so much the IT skills, but the thinking and attitudes to learning that will bring them success. For that to happen, though, your students need you to be on top of your game. This book is your coach.

Assumption #1 (Self-Concept)
Create learning experiences that offer minimum instruction and maximum autonomy.

Assumption #2 (Adult Learner Experience)
Include a wide range of instructional design models and theories to appeal to varied experience levels and backgrounds.
Assumption #3 (Readiness to Learn)
Utilize social media and online collaboration tools to tie learning to social development.

Assumption #4 (Orientation to Learning)
Emphasize how the subject matter is going to solve problems that an adult learner regularly encounters.
Assumption #5 (Motivation to Learn)
There must be a valid reason behind every eLearning course, module or educational activity.


Principle of Andragogy#1
Adults must have a hand in the design and development of their learning experience.

Principle of Andragogy#2
Experience should be at the root of all eLearning tasks and activities.

Principle of Andragogy #3
Real life applications and benefits must be tied to the eLearning course.

Principle of Andragogy #4
Give adult learners the opportunity to absorb information, rather than memorizing it.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 17, 12:17 PM

When we teach and assess, it is based on multiple curricula. There is the curricula-as-plans along with each teacher's personal curriculum and each student's personal curriculum. The latter two are the autobiographical filters teachers and students use in teaching and learning. Teaching and learning encountered this way become complex conversations that bring the curricula-as-plans to life.

Patricia Julia Alejandra Pérez's curator insight, June 18, 8:54 AM

Las metas de desempeño tratan sobre  competencias, es decir, habilidades, destrezas y conocimientos que un estudiante debe tener cuando se halla en un nivel avanzado de su carrera, las metas de dominio hacen referencia al aspecto más específico, centrado en "dominar"  una o varias destreza determinadas. No son excluyen, son integradas unas con otras, por lo tanto no debería afectar los resultados de los estudiantes en las evaluaciones.

What is described in this article are teams. That is OK in the right setting and context. Communities form organically. They are quite messy as opposed to teams which have a more rigid, linear structure. It does not mean teams are not messy, but the are different than communities. This applies in School where the more accurate term for professional learning communities would be professional learning teams. Even this falls short of what I experienced in School.
