Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education

Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Learning in a Digital Age | Scoop.it

I want to suggest a different way of seeing, one that's based on multitasking our attention—not by seeing it all alone but by distributing various parts of the task among others dedicated to the same end. For most of us, this is a new pattern of attention. Multitasking is the ideal mode of the 21st century, not just because of information overload but also because our digital age was structured without anything like a central node broadcasting one stream of information that we pay attention to at a given moment.

"The core questions now are: How can we redesign education in order to prepare students for the 21st century? And how can we transform teaching in light of our current knowledge about the mind and new research on what works when, and how? What types of learning environments might modern technologies enable us to create?"

So, I think that the narratives we use to think about our students multi-tasking in class needs to be informed by the nature of what it is to absorb oneself in digital media. Beyond this, I am persuaded by the research that suggests that when we multi-task, our performance degrades for each task we multi-task, even as we receive a neurochemical reward for our multi-tasking. So, through no fault of our own, our biology has us feeling better and better even as we do worse and worse.

Structure+Strangeness: Why students don't learn what we think we teach

Structure+Strangeness: Why students don't learn what we think we teach | Learning in a Digital Age | Scoop.it

Duke is captivating, and he makes a clear argument that students don't learn what we think we teach because they're too busy learning what we're actually teaching, which is, often, that precision is more important than understanding and that grades matter. The solution, he argues, is to teach, over and over, the things that we actually want our students to remember after the semester is over. And, that we should not defer learning about "The Good Stuff" until after they've suffered through boring prerequisites. Instead, we should teach the good stuff first and teach what we really enjoy.

Connecting Project-Based and Blended Learning | Edutopia | Learning in a Digital Age | Scoop.it

The technology itself is not the game changer; it is the personalization that technology affords. Blended learning’s greatest potential lies in the combination of immediate feedback to students, more personalized pacing, ability to make students responsible for their own learning, and ability to serve up the content when and how students are ready for it. If we can get this right, blended learning 2.0 could be a powerful way to run our schools -- where the best of online learning meets the best of project-based learning.
