Europe struggles with digital education

Europe struggles with digital education | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it
European higher education remains too conservative to adapt to technological innovations, said a Commission High Level Group on the Modernisation of Higher Education in its report published last week (22 October).

The group, which was launched in 2012 to examine such challenges, makes 15 recommendations to EU member states about how to integrate digital teaching and learning methods in their educational curricula.

Current learning systems are reluctant to leave behind conventional classroom methods and restructure the way universities and schools operate. Teachers do not have the necessary professional training to cope with new ways of schooling. The institutions themselves are poorly equipped with new technologies in order to deliver high quality, online education.

“Although Europe is starting to make progress, it is still lagging behind the US in using new technologies in our universities and colleges,” said Mary McAleese, the former President of Ireland, and chair of the High Level Group. “We should capitalise on the strengths we have, such as the wide use of ECTS [European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System] credits to ensure that digital learning in Europe is recognised, accredited and quality assured.”

Students are also reluctant to enroll in online degree programs, as an alternative to traditional, classroom-based ones, because many online courses do not offer credits towards obtaining a diploma. In fact, one of the group's recommendations to EU countries is that they recognise e-learning as a legitimate part of the educational system, and formalise it.

Today many of our students are consumers, yet Common Core would like them to be more creative. What can we do as teachers to help our students become more creative? 

This post begins with an exploration of research that has taken place in this area. Below is one quote from the post.

“Understanding, identifying, and nurturing the creative potential is relevant in education if we want students able to solve academic and personal problems and challenges, to find innovative solutions and alternatives, and to have better tools and resources for success in a fast-changing world...”

Affirmation-the inquiry process (which includes creativity and so many other HOT skills) is so important even for our youngest learners.  It's so important they work through the process and create something to show their learning at the end!  It may be a challenge, but the risk is worth it!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 7, 6:44 PM

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.

When people talk about cultures, they often paint with a broad brush: He is so American, so French, or so Japanese. But individuals within a culture vary enormously in their behaviors and attitudes, and many societies have distinct subcultures. Erin Meyer, author of The Culture Map and “Navigating the Cultural Minefield” (HBR May 2014), has identified eight dimensions that together capture most of the differences within and among cultures — a much more nuanced approach than focusing on just one or two elements, as people usually do

The feedback point is interesting. It is about information given to students relative to their learning goals. Feedback also means feedback for the teacher. What do we mean by student goals? What does this mean in relationship to curricula-as-plans. It suggests that teaching and learning are part of complex conversations (Pinar) and that the curricula-as-lived (Aoki) are important considerations.

5 Tips To Be A More Engaged Online Reader | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

The idea of speed reading has been around for decades, but there's been an explosion of speed-reading apps lately that promise to get you reading up to 400, 600, even 1,000 words per minute. But is it worth it? Are you really doing yourself a favor by blasting through e-mails at top speed?

Why Speed Reading Is Problematic

 

By using an RSVP app or even going through a speed-reading course, you can increase the number of words that you can read from 200 or 300 per minute up to and over 1,000. But there’s one serious drawback – comprehension takes a huge hit. Absorbing and internalizing the information that you’re reading takes time, and it often requires that you go back and re-read parts of passages to fully grasp their meaning.

In speed reading competitions, participants routinely only understand 50% of the text that they’re reading, which is far too low for learning important lessons or appreciating a piece of literature. Some experts even believe that speed reading a tweet would result in lower comprehension, and that’s only 140 characters.

Embracing Messy Learning

Embracing Messy Learning | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

I am slowly learning to embrace the struggles that students experience as they engage with authentic work. If I don't allow learning to be messy, I eliminate authentic experiences for students as thinkers and creators. I find it important to regularly remind myself that frustration leads to insights and that learning is not necessarily the equivalent of mastery.

The most intelligent organizations are overcoming battlegrounds and silos to maximize their return on customer intelligence. They're insisting on the "dog wagging the tail" by instilling customer experience context for all actions and decisions company-wide.

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it
The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.
