Learn to Integrate Technology

"The Teaching with Technology (TwT) curriculum is designed to help educators understand how Information and Communication Technology (ICT) can enhance the teaching and learning experience and enable students to acquire 21st century skills. Among many benefits, Teaching with Technology is free, aligned with the UNESCO ICT Competency Framework for Teachers, and self-paced (log back on at any time to pick up where you left off)."

The death of writing – if James Joyce were alive today he’d be working for Google

The death of writing – if James Joyce were alive today he’d be working for Google | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
There’s hardly an instant of our lives that isn’t electronically documented. These days, it is software that maps our new experiences, our values and beliefs. How should a writer respond? Tom McCarthy on fiction in the age of data saturation
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

"The writer as vanguard ethnographer; the novel as all-containing Great Report – it’s a lovely idea. The problem is, the anthropological model is fraught with problems; there’s an almost systematic unworkability inscribed within it – a fact that Lévi-Strauss recognised all too well. What makes his work so fascinating is not so much its colourful accounts of Nambikwara ceremonies or Caduveo body art as its constant, melancholic undermining of itself (whence the tristes of his signature tome’s title)."

Depression in Teachers Impacts Classroom Learning

Depression in Teachers Impacts Classroom Learning | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Teachers with depression may have a negative influence on some students' academic performance, a new study suggests.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Few studies have examined the role of teachers' depression in students' academic performance. Yet, teachers face a daily grind of stress-inducing pressures, from managing behavioral problems in the classroom to working with difficult parents, that might make them prone to depression.

The Concept of Race in Science – A Debate | Brain Blogger

The Concept of Race in Science – A Debate | Brain Blogger | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

If race is considered as a product of domination and inequality, then we should avoid the term. But we can’t, because it is still a big issue in the so-called “developed world”, as can be seen with the recent unrest in the US. If we do not refer to race or the racialization of groups, as an unresolved issue related to discriminatory practices and inequality, then how can we address it?

The Lessons of Failure

The Lessons of Failure | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
You may learn more from your rejection letters than from your acceptances.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

" I relished stories of failure by many of my favorite writers, like Márquez, Didion, Atwood, DeLillo. Doing research in art and art history for my first novel, I also became intrigued with Giacometti—not just his sculptures and paintings, but his attitude toward failure. For him, much like for Camille Claudel, success and failure lived in a strange mix, so much so that they both ultimately destroyed what many of us would consider masterpieces."

Lifelong Learning is the Most Crucial Educational Mindset | Edudemic | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Lifelong Learning is the Most Crucial Educational Mindset http://t.co/NDsncJk5xW http://t.co/pIx4D3S4on
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Several key points about lifelong learning and teachers: what it means to be a learning teacher, the types of learning that teachers do, and reasons to continue learning. Professional development days don’t necessarily target the areas in which teachers want to focus their learning or address their concerns. Teachers who adopt a lifelong learning mindset have access to information and use it to collaborate with others. Learning teachers also view mistakes and challenges as part of the learning process rather than as failures.

Relationships, not tech, are key | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Technology is important to education, but only in so far as it actually furthers learning, Adam Garry told Powhatan County Public School teachers last week.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Teachers should avoid the extremes of being afraid of technology and utilizing it for the sake of using it, he said, and instead focus on how those resources can aid them in getting their message across.

Their primary responsibility is patient health, but the second role they have is to demonstrate best practices and procedures in front of a virtual classroom.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

The features we needed from a wireless system for this installation weren’t optional, they were all must-have requirements,” said Blumberg. “Frequency management, secure wireless transmission, and a lightweight, hands-free design are all factors that could potentially interfere with surgeons’ performance and our patients’ well-being. ULX-D didn’t just meet these requirements—the system exceeded them. So far, its performance has been flawless, and we’ve been especially impressed by its set of frequency management tools—that feature alone is priceless.”

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

If you’ve got a couple of poets who are publishing slim volumes every couple of years, there’s more bang for the buck than with the conventional academic who, once a decade, squeezes out a study of those same poets. It’s a dreadful worldview, and one that the universities and colleges must resist.

Can We Create a Culture That Values Good Teaching? | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
We like to talk about the value of pedagogy, but we never seem to get around to rewarding it.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Effective teaching is also a highly transferable skill that’s valuable in all kinds of nonclassroom settings. Not all graduate students will become professors, and the graduate curriculum has to change to reflect that reality. The promotion of teaching helps prepare graduate students for diverse employment possibilities by giving them applicable skills.

The Death of Textbooks

The Death of Textbooks | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Artificially intelligent software is reshaping traditional teaching materials—but it's unclear what the new technology will take away from the learning experience.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

With traditional textbooks, each student is presented with the material in the same way regardless of his or her proficiency in that particular subject. Now, artificial intelligence means that the material itself can actually study a student’s learning habits and adjust in real time.

In The Future, Nothing is Certain Except Uncertainty

In The Future, Nothing is Certain Except Uncertainty | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
In the most successful organizations, the rarefied air of the C-Suite will be replaced by the unified mindset of collaborative creativity.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

"An open collaborative culture will foster the kind of continuous innovation required to survive in 2020. Fear and a protectionist instinct must be extinguished. Fast failure is an ethos that has featured prominently in 21st century startup culture. However we know that not every business is a startup (nor are they venture backed and risk-insulated). But in a world where everyone and everything is ripe for disruption, experimental organizations that welcome unwelcome ideas will flourish."

How Google determined our right to be forgotten

How Google determined our right to be forgotten | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Google has acted as judge, jury and executioner in the wake of Europe’s right to be forgotten ruling. But what does society lose when a private corporation rules public information?

Via Charles Tiayon
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

A public interest demands that relevant information remains accessible, which is why pertinent information about elected politicians, public officials, professionals and criminals – and even just bad reviews – all rightly remain accessible, hence Google rejecting such requests.

A review of The Successful Virtual Classroom: How to Design and Facilitate Interactive and Engaging Live Online Learning by Darlene Christopher
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Throughout the book, practitioners will find the many tips, checklists, real-world examples, expert perspectives, and activities for continued learning to be helpful in real-world application. The book can be easily read in sequential order, which presents a logical flow of material for anyone just getting into virtual facilitation. However, key concepts are broken down into chapters that can be read in a stand-alone fashion by a reader who may wish to skip around.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Words mean something. And what words mean is more than meaning in the sense of definitional equivalency. Words mean actions, too. Every noun can become a verb, especially in the hands of those with power, for whom language itself can be an instrument of torture.

Collaborative Problems: We’re Not All Social Networkers

Collaborative Problems: We’re Not All Social Networkers | Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Learning | Scoop.it
Social collaboration challenges the behavior of extroverts and introverts; from those who want instant gratification and others like to remain unnoticed.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

There are many benefits to social collaboration – reducing email; recording exchanges between colleagues; capturing ideas on the fly; nurturing team spirit; enabling teams to cross barriers of department and hierarchy. Understand the team. Take your time to get the right tool.

Take a leap and be the first one to use it regularly to encourage the crossover. Don’t just buy into one to keep up with the Joneses!

If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it. Lord Kelvin A lot of education research is an attempt to measure the effects of teaching (or teachers) on learning (or pupils.) But is this actually possible?

Via Leona Ungerer
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

When numerical values are assigned to teaching we’re very easily are taken in. The effects of teaching and learning are far too complex to be easily understood, but numbers are easily understood: this one’s bigger than that. This leads to pseudo-accuracy and makes us believe there are easy solutions to difficult problems.

Sure, there are virtual versions, but the analog experience fills our programming rooms in a spectacle that has to be seen to be believed.
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Honestly, sometimes very little of gravity is happening on those computer terminals in urban libraries anyway. It’s often a lot of socializing on Facebook. It’s also cell phone videos of fights on Youtube. And yes, while thousands of people are indeed applying for jobs using our computers, fewer are getting them. Tech and traditional literacy skills are serious obstacles for our patrons. For those folks who have achieved those modern basic skills and have managed to get low-wage jobs, we often find ourselves helping them to use public terminals to fill out digital time sheets in between shifts. You know, so that the boss doesn’t have to hire secretaries for the HR department.
