Rote learning is bad – and other myths about education

Rote learning is bad – and other myths about education | iPads & Historical Thinking | Scoop.it
The education system needs to produce 21st century learners, but what if we are going about achieving that in entirely the wrong way?

Via Sharrock
Mike Clare's insight:

This article is thought provoking,  what should we keep from the past and what new approaches should we embrace?  Makes for an interesting discussion.

Be Careful: reading this may lead you to becoming a bandwagon heretic!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 16, 2014 9:44 PM

I found two key points jumped out. First, myths are not always fictional. There is some truth, sometimes a lot, in a myth. With each succeeded generation, we have to figure out is what still makes sense in the story and what needs replacing. This leads to the second point which is that the present state of School is one of binaries and polarities. We are focused on either/or rather than the relational nature of what still works and what does not. Tradition is discarded in total and replaced with whatever the latest fad is.

 

We need more articles which make us think like heretics. The word heretic comes from the ancient Greek meaning "to be able to choose." Do we have choice to be able to choose?

Gina Paschalidou's curator insight, July 17, 2014 1:58 AM

D. Christodoulou's '7 myths about education' book debunks common 21st century ideas about education.

The 7 myths are:

Facts prevent understanding.

Teacher-led instruction is passive.

The 21st century fundamentally changes everything.

You can always just look it up.

You should teach transferable skills.

Projects and activities are the best way to learn. 

Teaching knowledge is indoctrination.

I’m updating my teaching philosophy statement; periodically this is necessary for both cynical and genuine reasons. Cynical, because of paperwork requirements; genuine, because I think I actually believe this, when I see it written out.

Thx Ariana Amorim of Serious Play!
Follow this guide to coaching kids or people who "think in pictures" how to create picture-based notes and outlines. Kid brains remember better by starting with the picture for a story. . ***Read the text while they create pictures to tell it. 
***They re-tell using their pictures. 
***Analyze the accuracy to improve the image words of the story (if possible) or the power of the images. 
Next time *** Divide the paper into number of topics 
*** Picture for each topic 
*** Re-tell & connect the pictures to create a branch from topic to topic 
*** Add smaller sub branches with new pictures if needed 
*** Re-tell 
Advanced*** Recreate the pictures from memory

10 Roles For Artificial Intelligence In Education | iPads & Historical Thinking | Scoop.it

"For decades, science fiction authors, futurists, and movie makers alike have been predicting the amazing (and sometimes catastrophic) changes that will arise with the advent of widespread artificial intelligence. So far, AI hasn’t made any such crazy waves, and in many ways has quietly become ubiquitous in numerous aspects of our daily lives. From the intelligent sensors that help us take perfect pictures, to the automatic parking features in cars, to the sometimes frustrating personal assistants in smartphones, artificial intelligence of one kind of another is all around us, all the time."
