Technology is not enough, but technology is your friend. It can help, but ultimately, relationships or important. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 22, 10:04 AM

It is not clear what is meant by help teachers adjust to change. Does this mean teachers are given autonomy to make changes they feel need to be made to help students? I don't see that happening. It would shake up the status quo and those outside the classroom would not want that.

A short article on rigor, with input from industrial managers.  The role of questioning in rigor is raised, as well as collaboration, leadership, agility, adaptibility, initiative, entrepreneurialism, oral/written communication, accessing/analyzing information, and curiousity/imagination.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 29, 5:29 PM

I like the word vigour. It fits with life. I agree we need new education and that is not a new package with technology as the add-on. It is a whole new way of thinking i.e. a Kuhnian paradigm shift.

Martin (Marty) Smith's curator insight, February 6, 12:05 AM

This is the best article I’ve read about why the Gartner all gamification will fail post is stupid AND gamification is harder than you realize.

 

The post takes 3 myths and patiently and completely explains the TRUTH of gamification - that is highly effective but neither easy or plug and play.


Myth 1:

Points, badges and leaderboards encourage competition and enhance performance

Marty - I agree. Leaderboards managed badly become disincentives. This is why Scoop. Its "horse race leaderboard" called MyCommunity is so brilliant as it only shows the horses running immediately behind and in front of me.


Myth 2:

Gamification is simple – assign points and badges, and you are done!


Marty - If you think about what we are doing you know "simple" doesn't apply. We are applying game theory to web marketing. Simple? Not at all, but what Internet marketing ever starts as "simple"? None that I've ever come across.


Myth 3:

Gamification increases participation and productivity of employees in boring, mechanical tasks


"Boring mechanical tasks are boring. Visiting a website is rarely either boring or mechanical, so I don't see this issue as important as it is for those attempting to adopt gamification for HR and other team building applications.

 

Mikko Hakala's curator insight, February 6, 1:40 AM

From conclusion: "Gamification holds tremendous promise .... but an over-simplified engagement strategy focusing only on points, badges and leaderboards, can do tremendous harm to the organization."

Peering into Learning | Peeragogy.org | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it

In this part of the Peeragogy Handbook, we “peeragogues” have summarised the most important and applicable research and insights from two years of inquiry and discussion. Although there’s been no shortage of experimentation and formal research into collaborative, connective, and shared learning systems in the past, there is a new rumbling among education thinkers that suggests that when combined with new platforms and technologies, peer-learning strategies as described here could have a huge impact on the way educational institutions evolve in the future. We’ve also seen for ourselves how peer-learning techniques can help anyone who’s interested to become a more effective informal educator.

Teaching is not producing. It is an act of praxis which involves forming. We do not produce students as finished products. They and teachers are always forming. This is much closer to Dewey and Vygotsky than it is to Plato and other Greek philosophers.

mercè perelló's curator insight, March 16, 1:15 AM

"Technology can, to some degree and in certain contexts, replace “know how” with “know where to look.”

Don't Screw Up Your Gamification Strategy

Gamification is not just about adding games to work activities, but is the broader field of behavior analysis through loyalty and motivational techniques, measured and constantly fine-tuned to reward the right behaviors. - See more at: http://www.aiim.org/community/blogs/expert/Dont-Screw-Up-Your-Gamification-Strategy#sthash.8PSiH3GV.dpuf

A few broad tips and thoughts. The definition and context are valuable. We can adapt these ideas to education, educational environments, and activities. 

 

Important excerpt: "everyone loves the idea of automating systems to drive employee behavior, but few then understand what it takes to build out such a solution, maintain and monitor its progress, refine as needed, and then measure the benefits achieved. - See more at: http://www.aiim.org/community/blogs/expert/Dont-Screw-Up-Your-Gamification-Strategy#sthash.8PSiH3GV.dpuf

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions

How to Train Your Mind to Think Critically and Form Your Own Opinions | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
"Critical Thinking" may sound like an obnoxious buzzword from liberal arts schools, but it's actually a useful skill. Critical thinking just means absorbing important information and using that to form a decision or opinion of your own--rather than just spouting off what you hear others say. This doesn't always come naturally to us, but luckily, it's something you can train yourself to do better.
