What Is Education For? | Boston Review

What Is Education For? | Boston Review | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it
Drawing on the work of Hannah Arendt, Danielle Allen calls for a paradigm shift in the way we think about education, moving away from instrumentalism to the cultivation of civic and social engagement. I find the notion of citizenship as “co-creating” and “world-building” compelling, and I have seen the most profound manifestations of this idea inside a state prison in Massachusetts, where I taught creative writing and literature to a group of men serving life sentences.
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Intellectually, our country’s singular focus on testing has turned many schools into places where exploration and imagination take a back seat to training for a remarkably narrow set of skills. Students could be taught to use learning as a way to understand who they are. Instead they learn to equate achievement with a myopic conception of progress reflected on a chart at the end of the year.

Margaret Atwood – A State of Wonder: How Technology Shapes Story

2015 Future of StoryTelling Summit Speaker: Margaret Atwood, Author, The Handmaid’s Tale, Oryx and Crake, MaddAddam 

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
As a critic, activist, and award-winning author of speculative fiction, Margaret Atwood has always been looking ahead. In her glances toward the future, she’s often searching for how technology influences content. The digital transition has already run through an entire era of online evolution, fossilizing a first round of experiments that failed to catch on. But serial stories, online collaborations, and sites like Wattpad, which connects tens of millions of new authors, are leading the way in a new wave of innovation. We’ve always told stories—it’s part of our humanity—but how those stories are created and shared is changing all the time, and Atwood’s looking to share her excitement about it at this year’s FoST.

Narrativas Digitales y Educación Expandida

Érase una vez una charla distendida sobre las conexiones entre las Narrativas Digitales y la Educación Expandida. Nos acompañarán espíritus inquietos en l
Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Excelente Charla que busca explicar la realidad educativa no solo de un país sino de la actualidad que se refleja en los salones de clase a nivel mundial. Se discuten temas de como la tecnología se usa a nivel instrumental y no  a nivel de pensamiento critico pedagógico, se introduce la educación expandida, alfabetización digital, aprendizaje basado en  proyectos, narrativa digital y gamification. 
Al final se recomienda que vivamos en un beta continuo y el aprendizaje experiencial. Se explica también que es la ética hacker y como podemos utilizarla desde su aspecto positivo al incorporar la pasión para cambiar las cosas. Ya los alumnos no son los alumnos del pasado.. tenemos alumnos del presente y del futuro. La educación puede incorporar los que los alumnos necesitan para funcionar y enfrentar las situaciones futuras incorporando las humanidades, la ciencia apropiándose de los medios desde su propias habilidades y particularidades. Les queda a los educadores diseñar experiencias donde los alumnos se sientan con la libertad de apropiarse del conocimiento y crear productos que luego otros puedan utilizar. #EduNarraMooc

Michael Wesch – Unboxing Stories

http://fost.org/summit/ Apply to attend our 2015 summit now! 2015 Future of StoryTelling Summit Speaker: Michael Wesch Cultural Anthropologist.

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
Michael Wesch Cultural Anthropologist.

 A pioneer in digital ethnography, Dr. Michael Wesch studies how our changing media is altering human interaction. As an anthropologist in Papua New Guinea, Wesch saw firsthand how oral storytelling worked for much of human civilization: It was a group activity that rewarded participation, transformed our perceptions, and created a changing flow of stories across generations. Reading and writing replaced oral storytelling with linear, fixed stories. Upon returning from Papua New Guinea, Wesch created the 2007 viral video hit Web 2.0...The Machine Is Us/ing Us, about the Internet's effects on our culture. At FoST, he’ll explore how our evolution from a literate culture to a digital one can return us to collaborative storytelling, resulting in a more engaged, participatory, and connected society.

In this video Michael tells us:

Stories are happenings, shared participatory events... 
The web is about connecting people. When media change, our relatioships change, our conversations change, our stories change and we change.
We want connection, participation, spontaneity, mystery, inmersion, involvement.

Now we the use of internet, stories of the future resamble again stories from the beggining. We have struggled to adapt to our environment. Now, we create environments to suit us. We want to live in our stories again.

Dr. Doris Molero's insight:
ha llegado la hora del ABP pero ahora tenemos que conseguir repensarlo para se convierta en una estrategia de emancipación y de transformación de la sociedad. Hemos dicho en repetidas ocasiones que el ABP contribuye a promover un aprendizaje memorable para el alumnado; ahora es necesario que consigamos que el ABP sea también una experiencia memorable para toda la sociedad: la reforma pendiente no consiste en cambiar la escuela, consiste en cambiar la sociedad.

Digital Storytelling: A Powerful
Technology Tool for the
21st Century Classroom

Digital storytelling has emerged over the last few years as a powerful teaching and learning tool that engages both teachers and their students. However, until recently, little attention has been paid to a theoretical framework that could be employed to increase the effectiveness of technology as a tool in a classroom environment. A discussion of the history of digital storytelling and how it is being used educationally is presented in this article. The theoretical framework, technological pedagogical content knowledge (TPCK), is described, along with a discussion of how this model might be used with digital storytelling.

How often do you hear college students say, “that was fun!” on their way out of your classroom? Probably not often enough. Of course, who has time for fun when you have a syllabus packed with serious learning outcomes and one semester to accomplish your goals.

The Psychology of Immersion in Video Games

The Psychology of Immersion in Video Games | Mundos Virtuales, Educacion Conectada y Aprendizaje de Lenguas | Scoop.it

Along with “OMGDUDESOAWESOME” one of the words that gamers like to toss around when describing their favorite titles is “immersive.”1 But what exactly does that mean? And what makes a game immersive? 

Ask 5 people and you’ll probably get 10 opinions, but psychologists have been studying immersion in various kinds of media for decades so they could probably shed some light on those questions. Except they don’t call it “immersion.” Instead, they call it “presence,” which, admittedly, isn’t as cool. Regardless, researchers have identified several kinds of presence in regards to how we perceive media but it’s spatial presence that I think comes closest to what gamers think of as “immersion.”
