This tech school has no teachers, no books, no fees - and it can change everything

This tech school has no teachers, no books, no fees - and it can change everything | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

It has no teachers. No books. No MOOCs. No dorms, gyms, labs, or student centers. No tuition.

And yet it plans to turn out highly qualified, motivated software engineers, each of whom has gone through an intensive two- to three-year program designed to teach them everything they need to know to become outstanding programmers.

Interesting while not attending to the fact that the education is becoming a market place where business principles and ethics will dominate and constrain education.

Major Ed-Teh Trends of 2013

Major Ed-Teh Trends of 2013 | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Technology is radically transforming education. As is the case with all other inventions, the real impact of the new emerging technologies on teaching and learning will only be felt more markedly in the next coming decades. When Gutenburg first invented printing, it took probably more than a century for people to clearly understand and see the implications of this new invention on human knowledge.

The Impact Of Technology On Curiosity

The Impact Of Technology On Curiosity | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Gamification, notifications, content titles, click-throughs, likes, suggested videos, and other modern realities seek to, perhaps unwittingly, replace curiosity with artificial pathways that don’t just challenge a student to “stay on task,” but can seemingly discredit traditional research–and the work behind it–and study as stodgy, staid, or irrelevant.

4 Stages: The Integration Of Technology In Learning

4 Stages: The Integration Of Technology In Learning | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

fully integrated and embedded in the learning process, technology can be transformative–and disruptive. Below the idea of technology in learning is framed in stages, from “on learning” and externally-directed, to “in learning,” and self-directed. This is not to imply that stage 1 is “bad” and that learners should always be given free-reign with powerful technology. The age of graduated release of responsibility model (show me, help me, let me), as always, holds true here as well.

While most startups begin with an honorable goal and worthwhile effort, most fail. That’s just the story of startups. We don’t have 4,000 different Facebooks, do we? There’s only one Instagram, Twitter, and Google. There are certainly copycats, spinoffs, and other versions of all these major players … but there’s only one big kahuna for each sector.

Showing youtube videos in class, sending out teaching slides via twitter, and even prezi-powered presentations do not count as new teaching methodologies. Sorry. There is nothing wrong with using videos and twitter – I am doing it all the time, too. Its just that focusing on such new media and technologies can easily distract you fromreally adapting your teaching methodology to the new learning environment.

How Teachers Can Best Use Education Technology - Edudemic

How Teachers Can Best Use Education Technology - Edudemic | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Businesses want to utilize the latest social media to let as many people in their key demographic know about the products they offer as possible. They want their customers to be excited about what is being offered to them, to know that they are valued and that they are getting a great deal. The business world is competitive, but this manifests itself in such a way as (generally) benefiting the customer, otherwise they lose out to someone else.

I won’t bother making the comparison with schools; I think it’s fairly obvious that what is described above is not what we get in the classroom.

The message: "The point is simple. Teachers need to be able to understand how to embed technology into what they do. But you can’t do this unless you’re already a good teacher. (...)

The biggest problem with Educational Technology to date is that the people that sign off these projects, or design ‘education apps’ didn’t have Pedagogical Content Knowledge in the first place – they just guessed at what we needed and threw something our way expecting us to figure it out"

t is no secret to anyone who has a smart phone or who has used Google search, that the Internet and search, adeptly utilized, can make an already intelligent person vastly more intelligent. As other technologies like ubiquitous artificial intelligence,  intelligent tutors, augmented reality, and game-based learning continue to improve, the digital divide between those who are comfortably fluent with technology and those who are not will create dramatic contrasts in society. There is a revolution under way driven by Moore’s Law (for price performance of computer processing power) and Metcalfe’s Law (the power of networked intelligence) that is changing the competitive landscape and redefining literacy. Those individuals who take advantage of this revolution and gain a comfortable fluency and literacy with these new interfaces will appearsuperhuman to and outperform those without them. Conversely, those who do not keep pace with technology will appear disabled. This will be true of individuals and organizations as well as nations.
