Door online leren en open access verder te stimuleren kan ICT een grotere rol gaan spelen in het onderwijs. Deze boodschap staat in de Verklaring van Qingdao die is aangenomen op een UNESCO-conferentie in China. De verklaring wordt gesteund door diverse belanghebbenden uit ruim 90 landen. Met de verklaring willen de belanghebbenden bijdragen aan toegankelijker en inclusiever onderwijs.
Op deze site delen leerkrachten informatie met betrekking tot cultuur. Buiten de duizenden bijdragen van leerkrachten, is er ook ruimte voor het educatief aanbod van organisaties. De voornaamste doelstelling is leerkrachten bruikbaar materiaal aanbieden en laten delen en zo het 'genieten' van cultuur binnen het onderwijs te promoten.
As I move in to a role where I will be working with other colleagues on a more formal basis when it comes to e-learning, I have been reflecting upon different Apps. I was thinking about SAMR and which Apps can have transformative learning linked to them, if used properly. The list started growing quite …
'Als we jongeren stimuleren in wat ze goed zijn dan buizen ze niet en moet de KU Leuven niet met terugwerkende kracht de boel trachten recht te trekken', schrijft directeur van het Minderhedenforum Wouter Van Bellingen.
The best learning opportunities that we experience are times when we choose to connect and learn from others in our field. But, sometimes we find it difficult to understand the value of using social media to connect. With tools at our disposal like Google+, Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter, we can now connect with other educators in a multitude of ways. But, what is the real value that you gain from connecting? Why should you even put forth the effort?
Take Charge of Your PD
Far too many districts no longer have the funds to send teachers to great conferences or other learning opportunities. Some districts still may not even have the interest of sending teachers to quality learning experiences. Now, educators don’t have to wait until a professional development opportunities arises. Using social media affords you the ability to learn whatever you want to learn about during a time that works best in your schedule. Through tools like hashtags, you can categorize, organize, and search specific topics of interest. The excuse of “I don’t understand Twitter” or “I don’t quite get Google+” is no longer valid. We have tools at our disposal like Google, that can walk you through every step of the way. Don’t understand hashtags? Google search, “What is a hashtag?”. Don’t know how to do a Google Hangout? Then Google: “How do I do a Google Hangout?”. As teachers, we need to be modeling the type of independent learning that we expect from our students. We have to be seekers of knowledge and take our learning into our own hands.
Like Minded Individuals
A great aspect of connecting via social media is the fact that you can build professional relationships with educators from all over the world. Through social media, educators can seek ways to improve both themselves and their classrooms. Sometimes, when we stay within our school walls, we tend to hear the same ideas and opinions. By taking ourselves outside of that zone and choosing to connect with other learners, we won’t miss out on new learning ideas and models that can help us stay on the cutting edge of what’s great in education. We’ve all had that feeling like we’re stuck on an “island” within our own school. An “island” where we’re easily misunderstood or don’t have others around us who teach the subject or content we’re covering. For example, if you’re a 7th grade Latin teacher, there may not be a lot of opportunities to collaborate in your building. By harnessing the power of social media, you can now connect with another Latin teachers from anywhere in the world, exchange ideas, and learn from one another. Social media allows us to find others who can help us grow and become better at what we do.
Bring Experts In
Gone are the days when the only opportunity to learn from an expert was to bring them physically into your building or to go on a field trip. By using the power of social media, you now have the ability to connect with experts from any field and from all over the world. In the midst of reading a novel with your class, you could bring the author in to do a quick talk or book read. While studying different science concepts, you can easily bring a scientist in to talk about the topic at hand. You can reach out to athletes, musicians, zoo keepers, weathermen, business owners, entrepreneurs, child prodigies, and so many more. Social media levels the playing field and provides experiences, that for many smaller districts and rural schools, would have never been possible before.
Both of us can state with absolute certainty, that choosing to connect was the best decision we have made in our careers. If there’s no other reason to connect, we both agree that the best reason is the ability that social media allows you to build friendships that are meaningful and lasting. No longer are we limited to building connections and relationships with people we see every day. With tools like Twitter, Google Hangouts, Facebook, Skype and more we can easily reach out, find other like minded individuals, and grow those relationships. Some of our best friends don’t live in our neighborhoods or work in our schools. Choosing to connect ourselves with others has not only changed our careers but has affected our personal lives as well and we can’t imagine where we would be today, without those relationships.
You see, when you step outside your comfort zone, your classroom, your campus, your district, your state, and choose to connect with other educators from around the world; it changes everything. Not only can you build deep and lasting friendships, but you also find yourself building a support system of educators who by connecting, only make you that much better. Ever since choosing to connect, we both can tell you that not only have we benefitted, but our students have benefitted from the growth, as well. Because in the end we’re only as good as the people we surround ourselves with. So why not surround yourself with the best from all around the world?
De school is een weerspiegeling van de neoliberale maatschappij, gekenmerkt door de survival of the strongest. Dat vertaalt zich in het gekende watervalsysteem en een sterk toenemend aantal stoornissen.
De school is een weerspiegeling van de neoliberale maatschappij. Die wordt gekenmerkt door de survival of the strongest, een maatschappij van losers en winners. De besten worden voorgeselecteerd en de anderen worden weg geselecteerd.
In het onderwijs vertaalt zich dat in het watervalsysteem. Je ziet dat ook in het taalgebruik: kennis is menselijk kapitaal, leren is lange termijninvestering, enz. Het resultaat is een opdeling van succesvolle jongeren en niet-succesvolle jongeren. Jongeren ‘moeten het maken’, ze worden aangezet tot competitieve individualisten met weinig gevoel voor solidariteit. Leerlingen die in hogere onderwijsvormen zitten kijken tegenwoordig met minachting neer op leerlingen uit lagere niveaus. Dat was vroeger niet het geval. Vroeger werd er uitdrukkelijk geleerd om samen te werken en respect te hebben voor de anderen. Op die manier is de school de voorsortering van de werkvloer.
