How Computer Technology Will Transform Schools Of The Future

How Computer Technology Will Transform Schools Of The Future | Mathematics learning | Scoop.it

Nearly every other industry has been changed beyond recognition by the invention of computers. Why not education, arguably one of the industries with the most to gain?


The answer is probably some combination of rank incompetence, institutional conservatism, and perverse incentives.


Via Nik Peachey
Edgar Mata's insight:

Prácticamente cualquier industria ha cambiado hasta el punto de que es irreconocible desde la invención de las computadoras. ¿Por qué la educación no, cuando es una de las industrias que más podrían beneficiarse de estas tecnologías?  En este artículo se ofrecen respuestas y propuestas acerca de este tema.

Un nuevo ciclo escolar inicia y el sistema educativo sigue igual.....¿qué elementos podemos incorporar que se adapten a la nueva necesidad de aprendizajes en donde todo cambia de manera continua?

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, August 26, 4:51 PM
Nik Peachey's insight:

A very technology orientated view, but well worth a read.

 

I would add to what Nik says. It's more than a tech view, it's quite dismissive of the role of the teacher. For example: "That one headset and computer could replace traditional textbooks, teacher time, educational props, and field trips, which cost far more than a VR headset."


I love, love, love technology and fun new toys, but I suspect it's going to be a loooong time before we can replace all of the above with one VR headset. When it comes to spending money on technology in education, we must be quite strategic. We can all cite examples where the technology was provided without training, so the new computers/laptops/tablets sat in the school unused. I suspect giving everyone a VR headset would fall into this same category unless it was carefully planned and implemented to support curriculum. 


I would, however, love to be the first person who gets to stand on the surface of Mars! 

Allan Tsuda's curator insight, August 26, 5:17 PM

It's happening faster than a lot of people realize. Interested in seeing "results" in student learning growth between the "have and have not" countries. Hopefully the gap will close.

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning | Mathematics learning | Scoop.it

I believe in student-centered learning, and I believe there is huge potential for this kind of learning to occur in online environments. But the instructor is a key element of that learning, and we need to talk more explicitly about what her role is and the specific ways she negotiates and leverages her authority, guidance, and presence to design learning environments in which emergence is possible.


Via Nik Peachey
Edgar Mata's insight:

Un cuestionamiento interesante: "El aprendizaje centrado en el alumno es una excelente propuesta, pero el instructor es un elemento clave en estas formas de trabajo; es necesario explicitar su rol y las formas en que pondrá en práctica sus orientaciones y presencia en el diseño de ambientes de aprendizaje"

Many highlights but especially this post distinguishes between Lave & Wenger’s communities of practiceand Brown & Campione’s communities of learners, explaining that communities of practice emerge naturally because the community members have a common interest, whereas communities of learners are designed by instructors to put students in situations where they will engage in active and distributed learning. --featuring the research of Filitsa Dingyloudi

PBL is one way to approach the way to organize the learning for students within the classroom. The use of different tools allows for the development of student-driven designs for learning and provides teachers with the opportunity to allow students more direction in their own learning. 

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 21, 6:13 PM

An art teacher and I (drama teacher) started to use a negotiated approach with students about 15 years ago.  By working with students to be aware of curriculum expectations and discussing "what would this look like" we assisted students with developingntheir own learnign pathways and expressions of their learning - in keeping with the legislated requirements of curriculum.  I've also noted over the years that elements of the International Baccalaureate - particularly the project work from MYP - reflects a similar approach.

Without reference to research literature, I'd speculate that this speaks to engagement, authenticity and relevance... and needn't be confined to K-12 contexts.... well-documented project work could be conducted outside the confines of formal classes and evidenced against formal assessment criteria.

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, August 22, 8:10 AM

Project-Based Learning is a great vehicle for allowing student to gain social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.  The five core competency skills for SEL (self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making, and self-management) can be easily integrated into any project-based learning opportunity.

Here's why the Internet works, "... because open standards allow every network to connect to every other network.  (So far...)   This is what makes it possible for anyone to create content, offer services, and sell products without requiring permission from a central authority.

It levels the playing field for everyone and it’s the reason why we have a rich diversity of applications and services that many of us enjoy today.

Concept Mapping/Graphic Organizers

Concept Mapping/Graphic Organizers | Mathematics learning | Scoop.it

"Reading Rockets shares that "A concept map is a visual organizer that can enrich students' understanding of a new concept. Using a graphic organizer, students think about the concept in several ways. Most concept map organizers engage students in answering questions such as, "What is it? What is it like? What are some examples?" Concept maps deepen understanding and comprehension."Cast reports: "There is solid evidence for the effectiveness of graphic organizers in facilitating learning." A summary of this finding is that, "When looking across 23 different studies they found a consistent effect on comprehension."

more...
Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, August 20, 5:04 AM

Assumption #1 (Self-Concept)
Create learning experiences that offer minimum instruction and maximum autonomy.

Assumption #2 (Adult Learner Experience)
Include a wide range of instructional design models and theories to appeal to varied experience levels and backgrounds.
Assumption #3 (Readiness to Learn)
Utilize social media and online collaboration tools to tie learning to social development.

Assumption #4 (Orientation to Learning)
Emphasize how the subject matter is going to solve problems that an adult learner regularly encounters.
Assumption #5 (Motivation to Learn)
There must be a valid reason behind every eLearning course, module or educational activity.


Principle of Andragogy#1
Adults must have a hand in the design and development of their learning experience.

Principle of Andragogy#2
Experience should be at the root of all eLearning tasks and activities.

Principle of Andragogy #3
Real life applications and benefits must be tied to the eLearning course.

Principle of Andragogy #4
Give adult learners the opportunity to absorb information, rather than memorizing it.
