14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

I would add: things that should or at least could be obsolete. 

In reality all these still remain in the 21st century schools and we even feel lucky if we have them.

Unless money is poured in today's many countries' wounded economies, all we can do is daydream.

These are things I've been saying for a while. If only the DBE and WCED would give us freedom to experiment and explore. The one size fits all model DOES NOT WORK.

Design thinking as a strategy: How understanding innovation creates innovation

Design thinking as a strategy: How understanding innovation creates innovation | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
Business strategies – especially in the tradition sense – are rather pushy. If you have a product, your strategy is to explain why a customer should use it.

Design thinking as a strategy flips this. Instead of forcing a product on customers, instead, it sees things from the customer’s perspective. A design mindset is not problem-focused, it is solution focused and action-oriented towards creating a preferred future. Design Thinking draws upon logic, imagination, intuition, and systemic reasoning – exploring the possibilities of what could be. This train of thought creates desired outcomes benefiting the end user.

When design principles are applied to strategy and innovation the success rate for innovation dramatically improves.

Social Media is the New Normal for Educators | #ModernEDU #ICT | Lurk No Longer | Scoop.it
The term “new normal” is the lingo used to describe drastic change in doing something or life after a major event. The change is usually
quick and immediate. It alters one’s approach to something or way of life. In the educational world a slower transition is happening that will create a new normal.  That change agent is social media. Social media has been around for some time but its practical use is relatively new to edu

Thought-provoking quote here: "So instead of dreaming of some utopian world where we could get rid of the foundation of identity-sorting and all would be solved, I propose that a more realistic and respectful solution would be to make sure we are doing everything we can to continuously and pervasively monitor and manage our tendency to categorize & sort, to join in efforts to alleviate the ills of those who have been alienated, and to help ourselves and those around us to always be finding new ways to truly celebrate and love our differences."

There are some fantastic online presentation tools for students that allow users to mix media and create engaging, fun and interactive slideshows. No one wants to sit through a boring PowerPoint presentation, let alone a class full of students with a low attention span. Using website presentation tools, students can collaborate in group projects or work solo, designing inspiring dynamic presentations that tell a story about their chosen topic. These tools are easy to use, and most have special education sections, so teachers can set up their class as quickly as possible.

En momentos en que en la Pcia. de Bs.As. se permite el uso de celulares... qué hacemos con ellos? 

Yeison Ossa Trejos's curator insight, November 2, 2016 12:45 PM
From my point of view, personal devices such cell phones, tablets, ipads, among others, can be a huge risk if we allow students to use them in the classroom. However, it is also true that we as teachers should try to find useful ways to incorporate these potential resources into our lessons if we want to increase learner involvement and motivation while at the same time improving time management, teacher-student interaction, meaningful learning and real-time provision of feedback. 

All these educational factors can be simultaneously addressed if teachers take some time to do a little research on the web to find out the countless activities that digital devices allow them to perform along with your students both in and outside the classroom. 
Sebastián Vásquez's curator insight, December 4, 2016 6:07 PM
One of the most common expressions that I use to listen to nowadays is "put your cellphone away". Many teacher deal in their daily basis with students distracted by their phones and most of time they take desperate actions towards this situations which leads to a rough environment and affects the atmosphere of the classroom. In fact, one need we have in this current days is that of creating students perception towards the use of this devices which is not  a short way to walk but neither impossible. Providing the conditions and raising awareness about other possible uses into the classroom as well as raising curiosity to what is happening in the classroom will increase the possibilities of obtaining better behaviors in terms of technology. Our task then is to start thinking of strategies to implement since the very basis of the students academic life.

Tips for Increasing Engagement in Online Learning

"Often times, tips for engaging learners in corporate online learning include external features and novel delivery methods. These range from using animations, “real-life” scenarios, game-design, leaderboards, and badges. But with learners actually spending more time learning and developing themselves outside of the corporate learning infrastructure, knowing what is appealing for them could have us directing our efforts and attention in a more focused approach that leads to greater engagement, activity and—more importantly—results.


Here are some tips based on learner preferences that could give you the results that you are seeking."
