Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom

Teaching Innovation Is About More Than iPads in the Classroom | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

Technology, by itself, isn't curative. Human agency shapes the path.In light of this dynamic, two critical questions need to be asked and provisionally answered when integrating technology into education. The first question, while obvious at first glance, isn't always fully articulated: "What are the educational goals of technology integration?"

The second question is equally important and often more elusive: "Do the current systems and processes support the integrative and innovative goals?"

21st Century Literacies: Tools for Reading the World

21st Century Literacies: Tools for Reading the World | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

In Intelligence Reframed Howard Gardner contends that "literacies, skills, and disciplines ought to be pursued as tools that allow us to enhance our understanding of important questions, topics, and themes." Today's readers become literate by learning to read the words and symbols in today's world and its antecedents. They analyze, compare, evaluate and interpret multiple representations from a variety of disciplines and subjects, including texts, photographs, artwork, and data. They learn to choose and modify their own communication based on the rhetorical situation. Point of view is created by the reader, the audience and the medium.

The Myth of Learning Styles

The Myth of Learning Styles | #AusELT Links | Scoop.it

The most popular current conception of learning styles equates style with the preferred bodily sense through which one receives information, whether it be visual, auditory, or kinesthetic (for some reason, no one claims that there are tactile or olfactory learners). We use this sensory definition of learning styles in the examples below, but our conclusions apply equally to other definitions.

Linda Alexander's comment, July 9, 2012 8:29 AM
While many valid points were certainly made, the article doesn't bust any myths. Foremost, too many folks are capitalizing on learning style books and programs that are not grounded in scientific evidence and may actually harm the way we "think about thinking" and classroom learning. We need to move beyond popular psychology, left and right brain divisions, and attempts to number specific learning styles; theories and programs not thoroughly vetted by evidenced-based research or the cognitive sciences. The brain is far more complex, holistic and malleable than generally believed today. The continual efforts to divide and conquer brain functionality limits the way we view human intelligence, creativity and sparking individual potential. Nonetheless, most of us readily admit we've generally advanced in our thinking with kudos to some of the early learning styles and multiple intelligence myth busters. Moreover, we continue to learn more about processing skills, learning and intelligence in ways that will open doors for children and serve positive purposes in classrooms....
