Online Education Is Replacing Physical Colleges At A Crazy Fast Pace | TechCrunch

Online Education Is Replacing Physical Colleges At A Crazy Fast Pace | TechCrunch | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Educators knew the online revolution would eventually envelop the physical classroom, but a torrent of near-revolutionary developments in the past month are proving that change is coming quicker than anyone imagined. In just 30 days, the largest school system in the U.S. began offering credit for online courses, a major university began awarding degrees without any class time required, and scores of public universities are moving their courses online.

What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning?

What’s the Difference Between a Flipped Classroom and Flipped Learning? | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Why do I characterize this explanation as a flipped classroom and not flipped learning? Because, contrary to popular belief, these terms are not synonymous. Yet nearly every article written on these topics mistakenly equates them.

Wort looking at the four pillars of F-L-I-P

 

Flexible Environment:

 F.1: I establish spaces and time frames that permit students to interact and reflect on their learning as needed.  F.2: I continually observe and monitor students to make adjustments as appropriate. F.3: I provide students with different ways to learn content and demonstrate mastery.

Learning Culture:

 L.1: I give students opportunities to engage in meaningful activities without the teacher being central.  L.2: I scaffold these activities and make them accessible to all students through differentiation and feedback.

Intentional Content:

 I.1: I prioritize concepts used in direct instruction for learners to access on their own.  I.2: I create and/or curate relevant content (typically videos) for my students.  I.3: I differentiate to make content accessible and relevant to all students.

Professional Educator:

 P.1: I make myself available to all students for individual, small-group and class feedback, in real time, as needed.  P.2: I conduct ongoing formative assessments during class time through observation and by recording data to inform future instruction. P.3: I collaborate and reflect with other educators and take responsibility for transforming my practice.

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.

 

They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

Learning What We Didn’t Know

Learning What We Didn’t Know | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Before the internet we learned from institutions, friends, family and co-workers.  Learning was a process largely influenced from local resources; schools, work, communities and civic activities.  We also learned from media fed to us and media we sought in books, videos and sound.  Our resources were limited by reach, access and choices.

 

Today the resources for learning are unlimited and for the most part free. Our reach to information is unlimited and access is 24/7  which expands the venue of choices.  As a result we are all learning what we didn’t know but want to know and we are being taught by others that do know.

20 Things Educators Need To Know About Digital Literacy Skills | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Widely understood to be essential to success in the workplace and modern life, digital literacy is beginning to emerge as a necessary component of curricula across the globe. As current undergraduates have never known a life without the internet, it’s only natural that universities should nurture their familiarity with technology, encouraging its use in teaching and learning. Instructors should also be prepared to offer guidance on what students aren’t as familiar with–turning their technical skills into skills for lifelong learning and employability.

All education is self-education.  Period.  It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop.  We don’t learn anything we don’t want to learn.

Those people who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own are the only ones who earn a real education in this world.

Curation as a tool for teaching and learning

According to Boyd (2010) curators help people to focus their attention on the most relevant and  important information streams. Valenza (2011) tells us to take advantage of the work of others passionate about a topic and use their curated work as a search tool.Fiorelli (2011) describes content curators as “critical knowledge brokers”.


Librarians, journalists, and teachers have always curated: they evaluate, select, collect, present, and promote material for their users, readers and students; but these days curation is becoming an important activity for a broad range of people and for a variety of reasons and purposes.

The researchers found that "personal 'ownership' of the device is seen as the single most important factor for successful use of this technology." They found ownership is fundamental for increasing students levels of motivation, interest, and engagement. Personal ownership promotes greater student autonomy and self-efficacy. Best of all, ownership encourages students to take more responsibility for their learning.

We take a bazillion photos with our phones and digital cameras. The digital images mostly just sit, clogging up our hard drive(s). This has been a problem for as long as digital photography has existed and it’s getting worse. Camera resolutions are getting bigger and with it, the file sizes of our digital photos are growing.

Although many companies have taken a crack at this problem, I think Apple’s upcoming iCloud Photo Library could be the perfect solution — if they do it right.
