Donald Clark Plan B: Bruner (1915- ) constructivist scaffolder

Donald Clark Plan B: Bruner (1915- ) constructivist scaffolder | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Jerome Bruner, a key player in the US Head Start initiative, has long been in favour of educational reform. The Process of Education (1960) laid out his general views on the subject, Bruner is still an active writer and The Culture of Education (1997) makes an appeal for a broad based culture of learning beyond the narrow confines of traditional schooling."

Donald Clark Plan B: Vygotsky (1896-1934) - social construction, mediation, ZPD, language, play & special needs

Donald Clark Plan B: Vygotsky (1896-1934) - social construction, mediation, ZPD, language, play & special needs | It's All Social | Scoop.it

'Lev Vygotsky, the Russian psychologist, died young at 37 in 1934, but is as influential as any living educational psychologist. In 'Thought and Language' and 'Mind in Society', along with several other texts, he presents a psychology rooted in Marxist social theory and dialectical materialism. Development is a result two phenomena and their interaction, the ‘natural’ and the ‘social’, a sort of early nature and nurture theory."

Donald Clark Plan B: Althusser (1918-1990) – schools as ISAs and filters for class and labour

Donald Clark Plan B: Althusser (1918-1990) – schools as ISAs and filters for class and labour | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Althuser, born in Algiers, attempted to reconcile Marxism with structuralism. Like Gramsci, Althusser saw education as the means by which the class system perpetuates itself, stratifying people into workers, the petty bourgeoisie and capitalists. Schools are a means of control by the ruling class and capitalism, and a preparation for work (work being the defining characteristic of submission and class)."

Donald Clark Plan B: Gramsci (1891-1937) – hegemony, intellectuals and informal learning

Donald Clark Plan B: Gramsci (1891-1937) – hegemony, intellectuals and informal learning | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Jailed by Mussolini, Gramsci wrote 32 notebooks, written over 11 years in prison but wasn’t published in English until the 1970s. If you hear the word ‘hegemony’ it’s likely to have come from someone who has read, or just as likely not read but unknowingly quoting, Gramsci.

The Effects of Virtual Space on Learning: A Literature Review by Olle Sköld

"This paper examines how the effects of virtual space on learning have been elucidated in recent research with the aim of providing both a comprehensive picture of the current state of research and interesting avenues for future projects. Drawing on a multidisciplinary review, it identifies five key themes that together constitute research in virtual space and learning: analogies between the study of physical space and learning; socio-cultural constructivist perspectives; practical and theoretical pedagogy; architecture; and, aesthetics. Current research on how virtual space affects learning is fragmented, albeit rich. The pivotal challenge for the future is to establish a research infrastructure that can harness the richness of already existing studies, while simultaneously serving to drive, focus, and interconnect future research efforts."

TED Blog | The numbers behind the Copyright Math

TED Blog | The numbers behind the Copyright Math | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"A few weeks back, I gave a short TED talk about “Copyright Math.” Since TED draws both Hollywood and Silicon Valley bigwigs, I thought it would be a great venue for raising certain rights issues that have been a sore point between the two industries for years. But January’s brawl over the proposed SOPA law was a raw and recent memory. So I decided to make my talk playful, rather than sermonizing. Everyone can laugh at silly infographics. And who DOESN’T want to deface a Leave-it-to-Beaver-like Christmas scene with pirate-and-Santa graffiti?"

Donald Clark Plan B: Piaget (1896-1980) – ages and stages - but mostly bad science | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Jean Piaget, the Swiss psychologist, claimed that cognitive development proceeds in four genetically determined stages, and that they always follow the same order. This theory of child development, he called ‘genetic epistemology’, and it saw the minds of children as very different from those of adults. Importantly, this perception must be taken into account in teaching and learning. Big problem – he got it mostly wrong."

Donald Clark Plan B: Habermas (1929- ): ideology, action but lost on new media | It's All Social | Scoop.it

"Habermas, building on the work of his teacher Adorno and Marx, critiqued capitalism and was firmly in favour of equality and democracy. We see here a neutered from of Marxism that looks for ideological causes of oppression in capitalism and a philosophy of action to bring about change, albeit in the context of social democracy. His influence on education has been considerable."

"Although Karl Marx wrote little on educational theory, his influence on learning theory and practice has been profound. It was Marxism that underpinned the entire communist world’s view of learning in the 20th century, especially through Marxist theorists such as Gramsci and Althusser."
