How teaching compares to working in an Ed-Tech Startup

How teaching compares to working in an Ed-Tech Startup | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
The ed-tech startup boom is being driven by former teachers. This is great because they are the ones who know what is needed in the classroom and what works with students. They also have the perspective of people who have used good and bad teaching tools in their classrooms. Teachers are both starting companies and leaving the classroom to join startups.

Melissa Corto is one of them. She started Education Modified after spending nine years as a special education teacher in New York City public schools. She found that being a former teacher translates into running an ed-tech company, because it drives what she does.

Confessions of a Luddite professor

Confessions of a Luddite professor | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
I had the good fortune on Wednesday to hear economist Robert Gordon talk about his magnum opus, “The Rise and Fall of American Economic Growth.” Gordon has a somber tale to tell. He argues that U.S. economic growth ain’t what it used to be, and that ain’t gonna change over the next 25 years. This is due to myriad headwinds such as demographic slowdowns, rising inequality, fiscal constraints, and — most important — the failure of newer technologies to jumpstart economic growth the way that the Second Industrial Revolution did.

[U.S. economy slows, with GDP growing 0.5% in first quarter]

It’s his last point — about the effect of information technology on productivity — that prompts so much fierce debate. Economists are furiously debating whether the visible innovations in the information sector are leading to productivity advances that are going undetected in the current productivity statistics. On the one hand, the aggregate data suggests a serious productivity slowdown over the past decade. On the other hand, Google’s chief economist, Hal Varian, insists that “there is a lack of appreciation for what’s happening in Silicon Valley, because we don’t have a good way to measure it.”

Surely, there are sectors, such as higher education, in which technological innovations can yield significant productivity gains, right? All that talk about MOOCs and flipped classrooms and the like will make a difference in productivity, yes?

As an optimist, I’ve long resisted Gordon’s argument — but this is one area where I’m beginning to suspect that he’s right and Silicon Valley is wrong.

Data is raw information that has to be interpreted and judged as to what it means. The risk we run with digital technologies, including the Internet, is that we present data as meaningful without thoughtful consideration. It is why teachers remain vital to the educational enterprise.

This article was very interesting. I found that very often, new technology brings new educational opportunities. How do we build a path to success for more of the new majority of students – low-income and first generation students, students of color, working adults – who are coming to our campuses? The Adaptive Learning Market Acceleration Program (ALMAP) is a program that supported 17 colleges and universities using adaptive courseware to redesign and improve developmental and general education courses and included an assessment of outcomes, perceptions and costs led by SRI Education. Technology will continue to aid us in the field of education as it grows each day.

Madelline Cárcamo's curator insight, June 13, 7:08 PM

Aunque este artículo habla de diferentes temas en relación a la virtualidad, menciona algo que en lo personal considero es algo que todo docente virtual debe poseer.  Conocer a cada uno de sus estudiantes, no por esto me refiero a tener un relación personal con los participantes; conocerlos significa, el ritmo de aprendizaje que cada uno de ellos posee y su manera particular de aprender.  Si un docente lograr desarrollar estás habilidades, puede tener un porcentaje alto de éxito en el desarrollo de su curso virtual.

Stewart-Marshall's curator insight, June 14, 1:57 PM
Online teaching is different in so many ways. Traditional teachers now have to learn new ways of approaching their teaching methodologies, and also learn new practices in order to be successful at what they do. In this article you will discover few great insights on how to better yourself when you want to step up into this “new game”.

Using technology to help students lead their own learning

Using technology to help students lead their own learning | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
Technology provides ways for students to learn anywhere and at any time, and affords the possibility of providing learning at a pace that is comfortable for each student.

Teachers can teach students from inside the traditional classroom, “the brick-and-mortar” as it is called, or from other places anywhere around the world. Lessons can be pre-recorded and shared or streamed live, and students can access these types of tools at any time and refer back to them as needed. The availability of tools which lend themselves to more interaction between the teacher and the students–and the content can continue, in the mind of the student, to grow.

There are many options available and the best part is that with so many choices, it is possible to find something that meets the needs of each class and each student. Using digital tools provides more differentiation and personalized learning, and can provide opportunities for the students to take on the role of teachers and to create their own lesson and lead. Students can create with these tools and share lessons with the class, thereby increasing the resources available to all students. Or simply use the opportunity to become the creator, as a way to help them learn the material in a more meaningful and authentic way.
