Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic

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.

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:

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.

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.

Teachers can start using Hangouts simply by setting up a Google+ page and signing up for the Hangout feature. They can conduct virtual classrooms at a number of places; it allows a teacher to teach up to 10 classrooms at the same time. It makes classes interactive and students can ask questions whenever they want. They can use it to connect their classroom with other classrooms or to connect their students with experts across the world, providing them with connected learning experiences. There are many ways in which teachers and students can derive benefits from using Hangouts in the classroom.

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.

Love the idea of flipped learning - so much potential.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:25 PM

The Flipped Classroom approach is been widely implemented in schools and colleges around the world. It is even considered as one of the greatest achievements of 21st century education.

The concept behind it is to reverse the traditional classroom practices with the aid of technology. Students access the already prepared lecture materials at home, in advance of the class and in the class they engage in structured class activities to work through problems with their teachers’ help, further their knowledge and learn through collaboration with fellow students. For the Flipped model to be successful, teachers before its implementation need to assess whether it is appropriate for their curriculum and students. They need to see if their students will be receptive to the new learning environment and upon implementation and use, teachers should employ effective practices to keep the model functioning successfully.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, January 28, 2014 9:20 PM

Flipped classroom is a classroom in which students view the lecture components of the class at home, then work with the teacher in class on projects and what previously would have been called homework.


What a flipped classroom model does?
• Students watch lectures at home at their own pace, communicating with peers and teaching via online discussions.
• Concept engagement takes place in the classroom with the help of the instructor.

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning?

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning? | Organización y Futuro | Scoop.it
Author David Price writes: "If schools are coming into direct competition with the learning opportunities available in the informal social space, it has to be said that this is a pressure, which barely registers within the political discourse.

 

In the following pages, Price describes three cases across the globe — in London, Sydney, San Diego — that have mapped a vision that answers the questions above. Here’s what they have in common:

 

- By insisting that their teachers and mentors share their learning, all three have de-privatized teaching and learning.

 

- By opening up the commons, and by designing workspaces without walls, they have brought Edison’s ‘machine-shop culture’ into education.

 

- By bringing into the commons, experts, parents and investors, they have given an authenticity to the work of their students that is impossible to simulate in an enclosed classroom.

 

- By modelling collaborative working to their students they have fostered the peer learning which is at the heart of ‘open’.

 

- By emphasizing adult and real-world connections, they ensure that students are preparing for the world beyond school by being in that world.

 

- By making their expertise and intellectual property freely available, they have created high demand from their peers and ensured that knowledge travels fast.

 

- By seeing technology not simply as an aide to learning but as the imperative for change, they ensure that their programs are relevant to societal needs and societal shifts.

 

- By trusting in their staff and students, and by giving them freedom and responsibility in equal measure, they have fostered a culture of learning that rewards respectful challenge, shuns unnecessary deference, and therefore constantly stays in motion.

Por muitas razões, uma postura de maior envolvimento, compartilhamento, comprometimento e autonomia, faz todo sentido para tornar o ensino mais efetivo e atraente.

Wondering what is on the horizon for education.... Significant upheaval, hacking our own learning, and the ability by our students to learn by....
compiling their own learning playlist, putting together units of study that appeal to their passions, (and) the one-size-fits-all model of high school will appear alarmingly anachronistic... Great quote by the Singapore Minister of Eduction -- “The educational paradigm of our parents’ generation, which emphasized the transmission of knowledge, is quickly being overtaken by a very different paradigm. This new concept of educational success focuses on the nurturing of key skills and competencies such as the ability to seek, to curate and to synthesize information; to create and innovate; to work in diverse cross-cultural teams; as well as to appreciate global issues within the local context.”
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 2014 1:43 PM

Sometimes what is most obvious is what we do not see readily. Whitehead suggested this was the case, but other, including the Buddha and Jesus, said similar things. We need to examine what we are doing, be aware of what we want from education. This takes leadership that moves away from easy, facile ways of doing things with 7 habits, 4 methods, etc. and makes real and meaningful change.

 

We simply cannot continue to add more changes without removing some of the architecture that currently exists. This includes with technology.

Maria João Loureiro's curator insight, February 1, 2014 3:37 PM

Em síntese, as competências a desenvolver (qualquer que seja o nível de ensino em diferentes patamares, diria eu), relacionam-se com a literacia da informação (com e sem recurso as tecnologias mais recentes), ou seja, pesquisa, seleção e tratamento de informação (para a transformar em conhecimento - diferente de copy/paste) e comunicação (oral e escrita) de ideias, de si próprio e do que faz (de forma rigorosa e atraente), tendo em conta as normas de privacidade e ética (que em contextos online são bastas vezes descuidadas) . Parece-me ficar a faltar outras tantas, como a resolução de problemas, a colaboração, o aprender a aprender...

I could help teach students these skills in the context of their other coursework.

CrazyConversations's curator insight, September 27, 2014 12:50 PM

These most needed skills are here right now. In competitive business environments, finding information quickly is a necessity. Judging the quality of information is crucial to decisionmaking.
