Dr. Dan:  "Big Data" isn't knowledge and really has not that much to do with organizational knowledge gaps.  Yet another IT driven article that gets it wrong.

Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume - EdSurge News

Students Say They Are Not as Tech Savvy as Educators Assume - EdSurge News | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it

"A love for avocado lattes and Snapchat filters are just a few of the stereotypes following Millennials these days. But students are now pushing back on these generational generalizations, noting that assumptions regarding their attitudes, hobbies, and abilities are hurting them academically. One of the biggest misconceptions students at last week’s New Media Consortium’s Summer Conference (NMC) brought up was the idea that millennials are digital natives.

"Most people have heard this story before: the eight-year-old son teaching his forty-year-old dad how to use some new device or app. However, despite being an allegory of our times, a lot has been said off-the-record about misconceptions regarding students’ technological abilities. In an interview with EdSurge, Alexandra Pickett, the Director of New York State University’s Center for Online Teaching Excellence, noted that many of her students know how to use online platforms such as Twitter and Facebook for fun, but have no idea how to leverage them for academic and professional use. It’s a point the students at NMC echoed."

What we use digital tools for in our daily lives is not what we use them for in classrooms. Neil Selwyn's and Larry Cuban's research have shown that digital tools used poorly do not improve teaching and learning
Chris Carter's curator insight, July 25, 7:17 PM
So true. Born into a digital world, we assume kids know how to navigate it. But really, did you know how to navigate your world when you grew up? Most kids are digital "naives" rather than digital natives, knowing just enough to do what they want to do. When I chaired a student-centered panel at EduTECH Asia in Singapore, the kids said the same thing. We should not unnecessarily put students in a box that assumes they know how to use the tools, to full effect, that the digital world provides.

The Future of Social Learning: A novel approach to Connectivism

The Future of Social Learning: A novel approach to Connectivism | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it

This is an interesting paper seeking to extend and apply connectivism. If I were picky I would complain about the interpretation of connectivism (for example: I don't think it's really true that "Connectivism largely treats technology as a tool independent from its context and its users." But no matter. I like the way the authors define three pillars of the learning model (learning process, learninmg content and learning environment). And I think this is a classic implementation of ARRFF: "(a) find information for hands-on assembly and installation of IoT devices; (b) agglomerate and visualize data for student-initiated reasoning on local energy challenges with the aid of mathematics and data science; (b) simulate, and examine different strategies for reduced energy consumption and improved classroom comfort; (c) discuss and collaborate on strategies using the online platform."

Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain | #LEARNing2LEARN #Research

Harnessing the Incredible Learning Potential of the Adolescent Brain | #LEARNing2LEARN #Research | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
“[Adolescence is] a stage of life when we can really thrive, but we need to take advantage of the opportunity,” said Temple University neuroscientist Laurence Steinberg at a Learning and the Brain conference in Boston. Steinberg has spent his career studying how the adolescent brain develops and believes there is a fundamental disconnect between the popular characterizations of adolescents and what’s really going on in their brains.

Because the brain is still developing during adolescence, it has incredible plasticity. It’s akin to the first five years of life, when a child’s brain is growing and developing new pathways all the time in response to experiences. Adult brains are somewhat plastic as well — otherwise they wouldn’t be able to learn new things — but “brain plasticity in adulthood involves minor changes to existing circuits, not the wholesale development of new ones or elimination of others,” Steinberg said.

 

The adolescent brain is exquisitely sensitive to experience,” Steinberg said. “It is like the recording device is turned up to a different level of sensitivity.” That’s why humans tend to remember even the most mundane events from adolescence much better than even important events that took place later in life. It also means adolescence could be an extremely important window for learning that sticks. Steinberg notes this window is also lengthening as scientists observe the onset of puberty happening earlier and young people taking on adult roles later in life. Between these two factors, one biological and one social, adolescence researchers now generally say the period lasts 15 years between the ages of 10 and 25.

elearnspace › Adaptive Learners, Not Adaptive Learning

elearnspace › Adaptive Learners, Not Adaptive Learning | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
Basically, we have to shift education from focusing mainly on the acquisition of knowledge (the central underpinning of most adaptive learning software today) to the development of learner states of being (affect, emotion, self-regulation, goal setting, and so on). Adaptive learners are central to the future of work and society, whereas adaptive learning is more an attempt to make more efficient a system of learning that is no longer needed.

Preparing learners for anything

Preparing learners for anything | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
We can talk about environments that empower students all we want, but if the educators in the building do not feel empowered themselves, we have a problem. When we switch from the word “students” to “learners”, this puts the onus on education to do this for everyone, not just our students. It is extremely hard to teach someone flexibility if we work under leadership that is focused on rigidity.

“Empowering” learners is not just a nice thing to do, but a crucial one. In a world where the pace of change is happening at a speed that is quicker than ever, Juliani and Spencer argue that “ownership” is crucial to learning in education. They aren’t wrong either. If students learn to depend on their teachers to “engage” them in learning, how will they adapt when an educator is not present?

Harvard Tailoring the MOOC Experience With Adaptive Learning -- Campus Technology

Harvard Tailoring the MOOC Experience With Adaptive Learning -- Campus Technology | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
Harvard University has begun experimenting with the use of adaptive functionality in one of its massive open online courses (MOOCs). The initial finding is that students using the adaptive assessments learned more than those who didn't — and spent less time overall getting through problems.

Adaptive technology uses information gained as the learner interacts with the system to change up how a concept is presented by level of difficulty, order and types of help provided.

The experiment took place in a single HarvardX course, "Super-Earths and Life" (now available as an on-demand course), deployed in the current academic year.

How The Activity Learning Theory Works

How The Activity Learning Theory Works | Learning@the_speed_of_change | Scoop.it
How The Activity Learning Theory Works 

Vygotsky’s earlier concept of mediation, which encompassed learning alongside others (Zone of Proximal Development) and through interaction with artifacts, was the basis for Engeström’s version of Activity Theory (known as Scandinavian Activity Theory). Engeström’s approach was to explain human thought processes not simply on the basis of the individual, but in the wider context of the individual’s interactions within the social world through artifacts, and specifically in situations where activities were being produced.

In Activity Theory people (actors) use external tools (e.g. hammer, computer, car) and internal tools (e.g. plans, cognitive maps) to achieve their goals. In the social world there are many artifacts, which are seen not only as objects, but also as things that are embedded within culture, with the result that every object has cultural and/or social significance.

Tools (which can limit or enable) can also be brought to bear on the mediation of social interaction, and they influence both the behavior of the actors (those who use the tools) and also the social structure within which the actors exist (the environment, tools, artifacts). For further reading, here is Engeström’s own overview of 3 Generations of Activity Theory development. The first figure shows Second Generation AT as it is usually presented in the literature.

What does make a difference is how students use technology. When students use technology in passive ways to consume media, even educational media, the positive impact is limited. But when students use technology actively, as a tool to create, to design, to explore, and to collaborate, they enable new kinds of deep, often transformational, learning experiences.
