The Digital Divide Is Still Leaving Americans Behind

The Digital Divide Is Still Leaving Americans Behind | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
The connectivity gap among distinct demographics is as wide as ever. Communities are being priced out of the Internet. What it means for jobs and education.
Helen Teague's insight:

Instead, folks in urban areas in search of free Internet often wind up at libraries. New York City libraries house over 4,000 publicly available computers and 1,300 laptops available for rent. New York Public Library President and CEO Anthony Marx told Mashable the New York Public Library was the leading free provider of basic computer skills training, with over 7,700 classes in all of its branches.

What Can Programmers and Writers Learn From One Another?

What Can Programmers and Writers Learn From One Another? | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
Simple, elegant solutions work, no matter the discipline.
Helen Teague's insight:

"There are more similarities between coding and prose than meet the eye. “The interesting thing about writing code is you don’t really write code for the machine,” said Vikram Chandra, a professor of creative writing at UC Berkeley and author of “Geek Sublime,” on KQED’s Forum. “That’s almost an incidental byproduct. Who you really write code for is all the programmers in the future who will try to fix it, extend it and debug it."

Mobile Learning: No Longer About the Technology, but About the Learning

Mobile Learning: No Longer About the Technology, but About the Learning | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
A transition, quietly but most assuredly, has occurred: Today, in 2016, discussions under the heading "mobile learning" are becoming more about how "all-the-time, everywhere learning" can be supported with "mobile" technology than about mobile devices and apps. That transition has huge pedagogical implications!

Types of Student Inquiry - Simplek12

Types of Student Inquiry - Simplek12 | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
There are various types of student inquiry. How many of them do you know? Thanks to a post I found on Twitter, you’re about to know about all of them. I watch social media closely and it’s my job to share some of the hot topics on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, and other outlets that teachers, principals, students, and parents are contributing.

The different levels of student inquiry  are about what a teacher does versus what a student does when guiding a lesson plan, project, or other school activity. Shelly Terrell posted an infographic on her Twitter account that explains the different types of student inquiry. The infographic was created by Trevor Mackenzie.

Why implementation of Social learning is important for the current education system?

Why implementation of Social learning is important for the current education system? | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

"Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but the trend of learners educating themselves is on a continuous upward movement. The reasons may include freedom to choose, no fear of questions being asked, learning at one's own pace and place, absorbing at one's own capacity and much more. The self-learning trend has been empowered by cutting edge educational technology innovation."


Via EDTECH@UTRGV
Helen Teague's insight:
Interesting Points:
1.) "in 1971, an influential Austrian philosopher named Ivan Illich published a hugely influential book called, ' Deschooling Society ', in which he envisioned "learning webs" as a model for people to network the learning they needed."
2.) And a workable definition of asynchronous learning, "Asynchronous learning uses technologies such as email, blogs, wikis, and discussion boards, as well as web-supported textbooks, audio-video courses, and social networking using web 2.0 (Web 2.0 describes websites that emphasize user-generated content, usability, and interoperability)."
3.) new media became an extension of the traditional media on the cyberspace, allowing to the public access information in a wide range of digital devices. In other words, it is a cultural virtualization of human reality as a result of the migration from physical to virtual space (mediated by the ICTs), ruled by codes, signs, and particular social relationships, inside and outside the classroom.
4.) "New technologies also help to “connect” people from different cultures outside the virtual space, which was unthinkable fifty years ago."
5.) "The National School Boards Association found that 96% of students with online access have used social networking technologies, and more than 50% talk online about schoolwork."

One thing this article seems to be saying is that the growth of technology in education makes more possible the old goal of emotional growth along with mental growth, especially in the learner taking more responsibility for their education. -Lon

Ashleigh Latter's curator insight, May 19, 8:33 AM
I have mixed opinions... On one hand I think Social Learning is positive, engaging, and informative while being a good platform for the next generation to access and absorb information, however I feel for a formative educational sense there are a lot of unknowns we can open the door to. For example, the article mentions that learners can go at their own pace - however most schools and institutes run by specific timelines and to allow slower learners to just be even slower may mean they don't even expose themselves to some of the content that may appear on an assessment piece and they end up far behind the rest of their cohort. If the majority of social media had positive views and encouragement for education with limited distractions, then it would be highly likely that we could see a generation of avid, elf-motivated learners - but does social media really encourage education and learning as much as we would like it to?

TeachThought: A Diagram Of Pedagogy in the 21st Century - | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
We know that thinking in the 21st century seems different. What about teaching? Aside from the presence of dizzying technologies, added pressure for data-based improvements, and a persistent call for innovation, how is teaching different in 2016 than it was in, say, 1984?

Here are a few ideas as a kind of quick overview, with general summaries for each. I’ve added “tags” for each domain so that we can begin to see how existing and emerging initiatives (e.g., personalized learning), trends (e.g., the flipped classroom), and buzz words (e.g., digital footprint) might fit into each.

What if young people designed their own learning?

What if young people designed their own learning? | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it
Across Australia some of these ideas are being put into practice. Some schools have dropped the notion of year levels to enable them to meet children at their point of need and acknowledge that not all students learn at the same pace.

Computer programs are enabling instruction tailored to the student by assessing where they are at and providing a tailored curriculum.

Capabilities , such as personal and social capability and critical and creative thinking, are being embedded in the curriculum. Work is under way to develop assessment measures. Teachers across Australia are working on developing new models of practice to support this approach.

We need to accelerate the change. We are wasting too much of students’ learning time and are failing to amplify their talents. To continue along the current path is increasingly unscientific, unjustifiable and plain dull.
