What Is Web 3.0 And How Will It Change Education?

What Is Web 3.0 And How Will It Change Education? | Librarians in the real world | Scoop.it
We'll reach a new state of web skills when we reinvent technology tools to better enhance our personal learning. We'll be at 3.0 when schools are everywhere and not viewed as daycare.

Via Gust MEES, Elizabeth Hutchinson
Deborah Welsh's insight:

With some reflection, I'm not sure we should be as cynical about Web 2.0 as this,  especially as it's really been the impetus for Web 3.0.

WISE: We continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice

WISE: We continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice | Librarians in the real world | Scoop.it

The new WISE Publication, to be released in 2014, will focus on the link between new technologies and learning. Graham Brown-Martin, Founder of Learning Without Frontiers and Founder of Education Design Labs, will write the third WISE Book, which will be illustrated by the creative photography of award-winning photographer Newsha Tavakolian.

 

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models.

 

Most of the world’s curriculum and assessment systems are based around fact recall rather than actually demonstrating that you have learned something and can deploy it within a problem-solving situation.

Deborah Welsh's insight:

It's not the technology but what we can do with it. We need to keep talking about how to let go of old ways of teaching so as to improve learning. Changing is difficult.

There's more to developing digital content than just repurposing existing textbooks

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

Why content curation is a new form of communication

While the history of communication until the end of the previous century has only been focusing on enlarging the distribution to a few published or broadcasted content creators, we now live in information overload where content curators can be the new super heroes.
