Writing still dominates in schools. Our exams are handwritten and many students are still encouraged to handwrite notes. There are some benefits to handwriting. It allows for thinking time which can assist in clearer writing and it gives students the space to be more creative as it slows down the process. While it is crucial to be computer literate a blended approach to writing must be adopted by schools in order to allow students the benefits of both approaches. 

A tablet computer, where students can handwrite, are a good option for note taking too, but less useful for writing essays and longer texts.

Education Reform: Pedagogy First, Technology Second

Education Reform: Pedagogy First, Technology Second | Moodle and Web 2.0 | Scoop.it

"Pedagogy is the driver, technology the accelerator.” This popular thought has been making the rounds on social media, instilling the importance of “pedagogy first, technology second.” This kind of thinking speaks volumes to educators for many reasons. Technology is often branded ‘disruptive’, a term justly despised by many. After all, what educator wants disruption? By placing the emphasis on ‘disruptive’ technology, over pedagogy, we’re making the wrong argument for education reform. For an educator, changing pedagogical method is not as easy as many would like to believe. Changing method with ‘disruptive’ technology? Forget about it. What we should be looking at is rather the pedagogy behind the technology… the purpose behind the tools."

Denis Lundie's curator insight, December 19, 5:13 AM

So - college and school education will remain stuck. Pedagogy cannot change significantly enough until the regulatory environment, curriculum and standardised assessments change. None of those are set in the knowledge and information context that has 'disrupted' the rest of society. 

 

It is absolutely and fundamentally true that pedagogy must lead. Unfortunately education has not been very good at learning or adapting due to inability to change the deep systemic constraints. Other institutions, since the 1990's have accepted that, in order to survive, they will need to continuously adjust to minor and major adjustments, or simply cease to be relevant or competitive. Secondary education is both protected and desperately constrained by political and regulatory issues, which won't shift until leaders in education move this forward. The manifestation of human knowledge across societies and the world, has changed completely in 30 years. 

 

What is found in schools is that 'education technology' leads - these are the silly applications of technology that are excitedly babbled on about in e-learning etc, like how twitter can be used as a learning tool etc. Blingy, rubbish. This article is responding, it seems, to the irritating ed-tech crusades which really are pathetic and miss the point most of the time.

 

Objecting to 'disruption' reflects a little lack of background. Significant technology developments simply do disrupt the way that things work, and always have affected the fortunes of societies and organisations. This does not mean that things should be disordered, only that institutions need to plan and adapt. Cars, printing presses, electricity, etc.  have all 'disrupted' institutions, and society. Some did not survive. The current disruption will of course be more uncomfortable in education, as it goes straight to a critical factor in learning - information, the lifeblood of knowledge transfer. Education stands alone, aloof and often proudly resisting any change (especially of what educators DO) in a world where other institutions have ironically become better at learning than educational institutions. These unpopular 'disruptions' all the more serious because the current sweep of technology changes have already irrevocably altered the landscape of knowledge and learning (in the 'outside' world) as information has gone from a scarce to an over- abundant resource. Current 'pedagogy' is firmly based on the former environment. Secondary schools still provide a series of 19th century daily , hourly scheduled, mass-production mini-broadcasts of information to groups of learners as the basic structure within which skill is applied to secure learners' attention, and some skills and information retention can be practised In this context, or as 'home' work. 

 

There seems to be a dearth of understanding that educators need to assess and evaluate the state, and relevance, of information itself, in the new 'disrupted' world where information is plentiful, and humanity's knowledge is encoded and far more accessible to a willing learner, than a textbook, a faraway library, a faraway university and a partially knowledgeable educator's memory. Indeed, pedagogy must lead. Pedagogues need to think about learning (continuously, themselves), and about information in its biggest sense, and how this should affect what they do, and how (which would then include information technologies) . . .

 

Of course, the political will to change education must also be worked on, and society's voting members (all parents, prospective parents) also need to be led and informed . . 

Mark Rasi's curator insight, December 21, 9:22 PM

An important message that pedagogy is our focus rather than technology. Also there is no single 21C learning model or solution, nor is there one teaching strategy (eg flipped learning) that will transform the effectiveness of our practice. Individually reflecting on the big questions will provide multiple solutions that will suit our own context.

If you want to take notes by hand but also want to keep the notes digitally, be warned, you may have limited success with OCR software. One Note, my favourite piece of Microsoft software, seems to be the best option to creating digitised, handwritten notes. Kinda defeats the purpose of toting that Moleskin around though.

[Slideshare] Future of Learning and Technology 2020: Preparing for change

The education landscape of 2020 will be characterized by the blurring of boundaries. Learning anywhere and anytime will be commonplace in many different ways based on the ubiquitous and innovative use of technology. Our organizations face a duality of change—conceptual and technological—regarding the practices of education and learning. The practices of teaching, presenting and learning will undergo fundamental change as it responds to global, social, political, technological and of course, learning research trends. Will your organization be ready and prepared to take advantage of these seismic changes to education, learning and technology?

The Evolution of Learning Technologies

Human beings have always been seekers of knowledge. The minute we discover something new, we want to share it with others and move onto the next achievement. Since the beginning of recorded history (and probably before) we have always strived to discover the mysteries of the planet, of Earth and of ourselves. How has learning evolved over the course of human history and what might the future hold for us?
