Provocative article, especially the questions at the bottom, including: What happens when students don't know what they don't know?

 

I ask this for us as communities and a socieity, what happens when we don't know what we don't know?     

 

History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."   

 

How can we best leverage technology to support students as critical thinkers, curious and empowered?

Why The Brain Benefits From Reflection In Learning

Why The Brain Benefits From Reflection In Learning | Research & Innovation | Scoop.it

"Executive function stimulation: include questions in homework and tests that require mathematics communication. In addition to showing the steps used to solve a problem, when students are asked to explain their thinking and why they selected a procedure or what similar mathematics they related to when solving the problem, they are using more executive function."


Via John Evans, Zach Ong
LETP's insight:

Students today may not know how to take time and reflect on what they have learnt. How can we help them be more reflective and ponder on the bigger but necessary questions so that learning can be more meaningful for them?

Today, around the world more people have mobile phone subscriptions than have access to electricity and safe drinkable water. Today, almost a third of the world's population uses the internet (a 528.1% growth since 2000!

 

So what are we doing with all the time we spend online, and how do we know all that time is being spent in useful ways?

For many of us, the internet is among the first things we experience after we wake; in fact, 75% of users are online before 9 a.m. Over 75% of people in the US own a laptop, 53% a smart phone, and 31% a tablet. Email is the most common action performed by people on their laptops, while search is the top action for mobile phone and tablet users. 72% of people like to play games on their tablets while 70% use their mobile phones for social media. Where do we use these devices? 72% of people use their mobile phones while traveling, and 64% use them in restaurants and coffee shops.

Paul English of Kayak, on Nurturing New Ideas

Paul English of Kayak, on Nurturing New Ideas | Research & Innovation | Scoop.it
The co-founder and chief technology officer of Kayak, the travel Web site, says “no innovation happens with 10 people in a room.”

 

 

"We’re (Kayak) known for having very small meetings, usually three people. There’s a little clicker for counting people that hangs on the main conference room door. The reason it’s there is to send a message to people that I care about this issue. If there’s a bunch of people in the room, I’ll stick my head in and say, “It takes 10 of you to decide this? There aren’t three of you smart enough to do this?”

I just hate design by consensus. No innovation happens with 10 people in a room. It’s very easy to be a critic and say why something won’t work. I don’t want that because new ideas are like these little precious things that can die very easily. Two or three people will nurture it, and make it stronger, give it a chance to see life."

Educational leadership in an online world: connecting students to technology responsibly, safely, and ethically | Research & Innovation | Scoop.it

Must Know Learning Theories for The Digital Age ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Research & Innovation | Scoop.it

Before you delve into the content of this slide let me  quickly remind you of a basic difference between a learning theory and pedagogy. I have to make this distinction clear because the last time I posted about this topic some of the readers confounded the use of the two terms thinking that they can be used interchangeably. Learning Theories are general ideas about how the mind works to acquire, assimilate and transfer knowledge and skills . Pedagogy on the other hand is the modes of instruction employed in the classroom.
