Don’t Lecture Me: Rethinking How College Students Learn | MindShift

Don’t Lecture Me: Rethinking How College Students Learn | MindShift | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it

At the star-studded Harvard Initiative on Learning and Teaching (HILT) event earlier this month, where professors gathered to discuss innovative strategies for learning and teaching, Harvard’s  professor Eric Mazur gave a talk on the benefits of practicing peer instruction in class, rather than the traditional lecture. The idea is getting traction. Here’s more about the practice.

A bit long article, but really interesting, because it starts from practice of teaching and real examples.

Pedagogical Support in MOOCs: A ne Approach to Tutoring

Miguel Zapata-Ros's curator insight, September 11, 4:51 AM

En realación el post anterior destaco la cita:

"These first steps in the evolution of MOOCs have been
studied by researchers and teachers who have reached different
conclusions. In order to counteract the problem of participant dropout, an alternative teaching methodology has been proposed in the form of tutored Mastery Learning (Zapata, 2013). This type of course entails the design, construction and development of an open online course with lexible environments in which an instructor teacher has a key role to play in the four main areas of the design phase of the course: knowledge and analysis of existing theories and practical application; creation and execution of teaching and learning activities; use of instructional design techniques; and regulation and self-assessment in feedback through educational evaluation. It also includes a certain number of TAs (teaching assistants), who verify students’ progress until they have mastered the task, and whose function is to filter interactions to decide which need to be attended to by the instructor teacher."

Gabriel H. Rivera C.'s curator insight, September 4, 2:00 PM

Dada la variedad de fuentes, es necesario saber: Cuales son fidedignas y cómo se pueden identificar, para aplicación en la producción de objetos virtuales o reales.  No es una tarea fácil, pero considero podemos empezar por organizar la búsqueda.    Por ejemplo, en nuestro medio académico, ubicado en Bogotá,  es importante aprender y enseñar métodos que permitan clasificar la información o sitios web inicialmente encontrados en cualquier trabajo de exploración en internet.

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia

Project-Based Learning Through a Maker's Lens - Edutopia | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it

"The rise of the Maker has been one of the most exciting educational trends of the past few years. A Maker is an individual who communicates, collaborates, tinkers, fixes, breaks, rebuilds, and constructs projects for the world around him or her. A Maker, re-cast into a classroom, has a name that we all love: a learner. A Maker, just like a true learner, values the process of making as much as the product. In the classroom, the act of Making is an avenue for a teacher to unlock the learning potential of her or his students in a way that represents many of the best practices of educational pedagogy. A Makerspace classroom has the potential to create life-long learners through exciting, real-world projects."

This sounds remarkably similar to John Dewey who used the word reconstructing in describing real-world, concrete learning that can happen. This takes exceptional pedagogy and teaching in building  relationships with students.

HJJP's curator insight, August 20, 8:16 PM

Single source education has never been very effective, I still remember those days of pure memorization. I was fortunate enough to have relatives that always asked me about what I learned... and they were not interested in me reciting the facts, they were interested in me telling them what I thought, how it impacted my life or those of others.... When I answered them, and they were happy with my answers, I actually got to understand what I had memorized, and certainly got to master the information in a more meaningful way.... It did not always help with getting excellent grades in exams, but I still accurately remember concepts I learned in 3rd grade.... I feel blended learning is the only way of teaching.... this will allow students to understand and implement complex concepts, catapulting them into much high learning than what we experienced 50 years ago.... or 40... or 30... even 20 or in many classrooms, a couple of days ago....

 

Hope to see many teachers utilizing these sort of blended learning... Current technology makes it so much easier...

Year of Code in UK. Programmazione insegnata nelle scuole

Year of Code in UK. Programmazione insegnata nelle scuole | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it

Il 2014, per chi non lo sapesse, è stato dichiarato “Year of Code” nel Regno Unito. Anno del codice, nel senso di “anno della programmazione”. Da settembre, la programmazione verrà insegnata nelle scuole elementari e medie, ovvero tra i 5 e i 16 anni.

...

Non penso che i bambini debbano essere tenuti lontani dalle macchine, né che la logica dell’utenza passiva multimediale debba restare l’unica, o quella privilegiata, fino alla maturità.


Ma il recente fiorire di iniziative per introdurre i bambini alla programmazione (diciamola meglio: per portare dei ragazzini a sviluppare delle app in una sola giornata) mi lascia invece perplesso.

Quanto costa veramente la privacy su internet?

Quanto costa veramente la privacy su internet? | (R)e-Learning | Scoop.it
Qual è il prezzo della privacy? Ce lo chiediamo in molti e nessuno riesce a fornire una risposta.

Un problema non da poco dato che la privacy sembra essere il bene di scambio per eccellenza nel mercato dei servizi Internet. Pensare che servizi comeFacebook e Gmail siano gratuiti per il semplice fatto che non richiedono unatransazione monetaria è una delle grandi ingenuità dei nostri tempi. “Sono gratis perché ti fanno vedere la pubblicità e quindi si ripagano in quel modo” obbiettano i più miopi tra gli ingenui, senza sapere che l'aspetto dell'advertising in sé è solo marginale nel modello di business di questi soggetti. La forza di questo modello non è tanto infilare dei banner pubblicitari nei siti (che a ben vedere è alla portata di tutti), quanto far apparire il banner giusto, alla persona giusta, nel momento giusto e nelle modalità giuste. E per fare ciò devi sapere davvero tante cose sui tuoi singoli utenti.

...

In questo scenario però si inseriscono alcuni casi in cui la libertà di scelta dell'utente è ancor più complessa e uno dei più mastodontici è tornato di recente agli onori della cronaca grazie a un'articolata email postata da Luciano Paccagnella (docente all’Università degli studi di Torino) nella lista di discussione del Centro Nexa di Torino. Il tema è quello della migrazione di molti atenei italiani dal loro vecchio sistema di posta elettronica a Gmail, aderendo all'offerta educational predisposta da Google specificamente per scuole e università. Paccagnella mette in luce tutte le principali note dolenti di questa scelta, estendendo e approfondendo quanto un paio di anni fa era già stato segnalato da Andrea Rossetti relativamente al caso Bicocca.
