Finland leads the way with #21stedu and innovation.

Ginger Jewell's curator insight, October 31, 2016 8:47 AM
The concept of transverse education is cross curricular classes for the 21st century.  Teaching integrated subjects happens easily at elementary, how do we break the barriers at high school which is ruled by discipline silos?  Space and scheduling can make it happen if we have the leaders to do it...

Brad Merrick's curator insight, November 11, 2016 4:14 PM
As the world changes educators need to be creative and realise that 21 century capacities are not being developed through existing curriculum and learning structures. Here, the Transverse approach sees Finland leading the charge, preparing students with the interdisciplinary skills and understanding for the world around them. Well worth the read.

How The Activity Learning Theory Works

How The Activity Learning Theory Works | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it
How The Activity Learning Theory Works 

Vygotsky’s earlier concept of mediation, which encompassed learning alongside others (Zone of Proximal Development) and through interaction with artifacts, was the basis for Engeström’s version of Activity Theory (known as Scandinavian Activity Theory). Engeström’s approach was to explain human thought processes not simply on the basis of the individual, but in the wider context of the individual’s interactions within the social world through artifacts, and specifically in situations where activities were being produced.

In Activity Theory people (actors) use external tools (e.g. hammer, computer, car) and internal tools (e.g. plans, cognitive maps) to achieve their goals. In the social world there are many artifacts, which are seen not only as objects, but also as things that are embedded within culture, with the result that every object has cultural and/or social significance.

Tools (which can limit or enable) can also be brought to bear on the mediation of social interaction, and they influence both the behavior of the actors (those who use the tools) and also the social structure within which the actors exist (the environment, tools, artifacts). For further reading, here is Engeström’s own overview of 3 Generations of Activity Theory development. The first figure shows Second Generation AT as it is usually presented in the literature.

Many times when we learn we use many tools. They may be our minds or they may be outside objects. This is how we put them together and use it for the better.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it

Durante años, Finlandia ha sido la palabra por un sistema educativo exitoso, encaramado en la cima de las tablas de clasificación internacional para la alfabetización y la aritmética.

.

Pasi Silander, gerente de desarrollo de la ciudad, explicó: "Lo que necesitamos ahora es un tipo diferente de la educación para preparar a las personas para la vida laboral.

.

"Los jóvenes usan las computadoras muy avanzadas. En el pasado los bancos tenían una gran cantidad de empleados de banca totting cifras, pero ahora que ha cambiado totalmente.

.

" Por lo tanto, tenemos que hacer los cambios en la educación que son necesarios para la industria y la sociedad moderna. "

.

Sobre temas concretos lecciones - una hora de la historia de la mañana, una hora de la geografía en la tarde - ya se están eliminando gradualmente para el 16-años de edad en las escuelas superiores de la ciudad. Ellos están siendo reemplazados por lo que los finlandeses llaman " la enseñanza fenómeno " - o la enseñanza por tema . Por ejemplo, un adolescente que estudia un curso de formación profesional podría tomar clases de "servicios de cafetería", que incluiría elementos de matemáticas, idiomas (para ayudar a atender a los clientes extranjeros), habilidades de escritura y habilidades de comunicación.

.

Más alumnos académicos se imparten temas cruz-sujetos, como la Unión Europea - que fusionar elementos de la economía, la historia (de los países involucrados), los idiomas y la geografía.

The world around us is not labelled or divided in categories, then why is academic content? Can we not relate topics and elaborate meaning on the basis of relationships and intertwined data? 

Helen Teague's curator insight, April 13, 2015 9:11 PM

I wonder if this would work in the U.S.? Also, in Finland, students do not take standardized tests until the end of high school (Zhao, 2012, p. 111), so thankfully, perhaps the drill and kill process is diminished.

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers

Critical Digital Literacy Explained for Teachers | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it

Critical digital literacy is one of the essential required competencies for the 21st century educator. In an era of unprecedented personal publishing, infobesity (information obesity) becomes a real issue. Teachers need to be able to critically  assess and evaluate the materials and knowledge they come across. This could be done through adopting a critical thinking lens to filter things that could otherwise unconsciously affect one's stance and interpretation of  a given meaning.

Juliet Hinrichsen and Antony Coombs from University of Greenwich developed this excellent framework to help you understand the concept of critical digital literacy. This framework is made up of 5 dimensions:

This topic is crucial for all educators. "Teachers need to be able to critically  assess and evaluate the materials and knowledge they come across." And it doesn't matter where the materials are published. Can't agree more...

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, December 12, 2014 12:14 PM

About five years ago, I worked with a large suburban school on developing awareness and teaching/learning skill sets in the area of critical literacy. The nuances of digital and even print text within structure and conventions suggests meaning that extends far beyond the alphabetic word. This framework would have been a helpful tool to ground discussion and build understanding.

The face of educational instruction is changing once again.  The relaxed manner in which these notes are representing important content is fabulous.  A cirle is almost complete - as a child this sort of doodling in class was stopped and a punishable offense!  Yet so many tutors, educators, and trainers are idealists and visualise while learning and observing the world around them.  It is great to see that this representation of learning is on a comeback of acceptance.

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

 

Creating “Collaborative Learning Communities”

“It is essential to view learning as a total community responsibility,” he says, and to expect no short cuts. Children need to be integrated, fully contributing members of the broader community, so they can feel useful and valued. (It is not just the children who need this, he adds; healthy communities also need children.)

.

On a practical level, the most powerful lever for change, Abbott says, is people coming together to “rethink the role of community in the learning process,” agreeing how to divide up responsibilities among professional teachers and other community members, and then launching small pilot projects that are true to their new vision. These efforts will build on each other, he says, and large-scale change will follow.

I really like this article because it is very effective at weighing the pros and cons of using twitter in the classroom.  Some of the supplemental links are also very helpful to look at and include content on how to teach with Twitter and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that can result from using Twitter in a classroom setting.   In general, I believe strongly in helping students to develop global competency (as we have discussed in class) and I believe that Twitter is one of the best and most convenient mediums to do this.  While I am slightly apprehensive about how and if it is even possible to use Twitter in an elementary school classroom I definitely see more potential in using it after reading this article.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

We learn by doing, so teaching should ask us to do.
