Why today is my last day teaching online... | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

diane gusa's insight:

I too thought that online learning was inferior to the face-2-face model. However, I have found the opposite to be true. If the purpose of education is not just to teach content, but prepare students to be life-time learners in the 21st century, then online courses are a necessary. Unfortunately, higher education has always sacrificed pedagogy for content. If an instructor was knowledgeably in the content area, then he or she was capable of teaching the content. Not true! Teaching is not a process of “banking” in which the instructor deposits information into the students’ heads. Teaching is helping a student to build their own thinking and understandings.

diane gusa's insight:

Comments "The role of technology in nowadays education doesn't depend on its technical features, it is already powerful enough to do whatever we want or evolute toward wherever we want to drive it... its role have depended and will depend on our way of thinking... it means the role of technology in education depends ultimately on how we understand education."

"To use OER outside an LMS - in Google, padlet, blogs, worle, etc - you need one key for each and every one of these tools. And in order to use them you must give away parts of yourself, your privacy, to - not one but - many unknown companies. To call this "open" is to me only a rhetoric figure for selling in a commodity on developing education market (as Alastair says), which also has led to the emergence of "big data"."

Again, the importance of the teacher as designer of learning -  but not designing for the average student, and then differentiating. The average student doesn't exist! Instead, design for the edges --the extremes.  This post and video make this so understandable.  I am thinking of sharing this with parents in our 1:1 program to help them understand the potential - and kick off a discussion about transforming education through technology.

I am HOPEFUL these will be trends! ...Unfortunately, in our standards-based world, schools and districts end up cutting off the points of the triangle to make the newest thing fit inside their current circle of practice.  Time will tell.

Connie Davis's curator insight, July 1, 2014 1:20 AM

I consider these trends to be very important. I think provide kids with authentic learning opportunities is very important. Step back and be a facilitator and coach to see where the learning REALLY happens.

Some of my favorite quotes:

"Learners can be creating customized learning playlists."

"Vibrant local learning ecosystems can be created."

-We need to put learners at the center of the learning ecosystem. 

What would be there now? Standardized testing.

Such important points, distinguishing between personalized learning (as in something educators or technology does) and personal learning, which is not something that can/should be delivered or covered, but describes learning that the learner chooses.

What a wonderful concept - curating things we percieve to be beautiful. Howard Gardner is such an amazing thinker!

 

I also love the term "relevance portfolio" –this is exactly what I think will be a stepping stone towards personalized learning through content curation.
