Why Online Programs Fail, and 5 Things We Can Do About It | Online Learning | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Why Online Programs Fail, and 5 Things We Can Do About It | Online Learning | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

Online learning in its current iterations will fail.

The failure of online education programs is not logistical, nor political, nor economic: it’s cultural, rooted in our perspectives and biases about how learning happens and how the internet works (these things too often seen in opposition). For learning to change drastically -- a trajectory suggested but not yet realized by the rise of MOOCs -- teaching must change drastically. And in order for that to happen, we must conceive of the activity of teaching, as an occupation and preoccupation, in entirely new and unexpected ways. We must unseat ourselves, unnerve ourselves. Online learning is uncomfortable, and so educators must become uncomfortable in their positions as teachers and pedagogues. And the administration of online programs must follow suit.

It’s important for us to be very specific about what we mean by failure. There are two kinds of failure we want to discuss here. The first kind of failure -- an improper failure -- does damage, breeds limitations, shuts down critical thinking, and disengages us from our pedagogical or learning processes. Our ethical commitment to students and the enterprise of education is too strong to abide this kind of failure.

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning

The Neuroscience Behind Stress and Learning | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

The highest-level executive thinking, making connections, and "aha" moments of insight and creative innovation are more likely to occur in an atmosphere of what Alfie Kohn calls exuberant discovery, where students of all ages retain that kindergarten enthusiasm of embracing each day with the joy of learning.

Chris Brown's curator insight, July 25, 7:31 AM

Consider when you feel learning takes place.  Neroscience has been studying how the brain reacts in certain situations and they have found that:

 

"...superior learning takes place when classroom experiences are relevant to students' lives, interests, and experiences. Lessons can be stimulating and challenging without being intimidating, and the increasing curriculum requirements can be achieved without stress, anxiety, boredom, and alienation as the pervasive emotions of the school day."

 

As learning professionals we should consider the impact of stressful or boring situations on the ability of our learners to be successful.  The article concludes with a call to action:

 

"Joy and enthusiasm are absolutely essential for learning to happen -- literally, scientifically, as a matter of fact and research. Shouldn't it be our challenge and opportunity to design learning that embraces these ingredients?"

 

Joy and enthusiasm are essential...how are you going to embrace these?

Andrea Stewart's curator insight, July 26, 9:09 PM

"Where students of all ages retain the kindergarten enthusiasm....[for] the joy of learning".... Now that is what I hope for in my students everyday. That joy and enthusiasm. Now we know this type of joyful, playful atmosphere enables better imprinting of information into accessible memories. Let's get back to kindergarten thinking!

Robin Good's curator insight, April 15, 3:52 AM



In this SxSW set of video interviews captured by Wipster (a collaborative video review and approval service) with some of the "experts" in the online video publishing field, you can hear most of what you already know and expect from the future of video: 4K, real-time editing, effects, 3D, small screens and more. 

What instead emerges as the real challenge though, is to realize that no matter what kind of tools and services you use, the difficult part is to have a good story and to learn how to tell it on video.


Tools are great and easy indeed, but they don't make anyone a capable storyteller instantly. This is what we really need to work on.


No need to view all 12+ minutes of the video. Just check the first and the last interview in this clip and you will get the real meat.

Personalized learning is built on the idea that each learner is unique and learns in different ways. This is called variability in learning. To support all learners’ unique needs and preferences, learning environments have to be flexible. It takes a process to transform learning environments and change learner and teacher roles.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, July 3, 6:00 PM

University learners need to be similarly considered.  There is very little ubiquity of prior experience with such diverse intakes - Plan to shift from pedagogy to andragogy to heutagogy.  Student needs shift from early engagement where pedagogy (teacher direction) is the norm, to andragogy where the role of the teacher shifts to facilitating student engagement in the processes of learning, to heutagogy where students define and organise their own learning requirements.

Humility makes sense. Socrates knew that he was ignorant, and therefor was ready to learn. If I think that I already know a thing, or do not need to know a thing, then my mind is closed to it. All learning starts from a point of ignorance, and then move to greater approximations of understanding until mastery.

Making learning more connected

Making learning more connected | Resources for Teaching | Scoop.it

Teachers know that the classroom is a complex ecosystem and that they constantly draw from the best of various models at any given moment in their teaching in order to tailor instruction to the needs of their students; plus, many models overlap to the point that teachers could be adhering to several of them simultaneously. And so, as I set out to talk about Connected Learning with educators, I kept wishing that it didn’t have a name that sounded so impressive and self-contained, and instead could just be called A Vision for Learning that Encompasses Many of the Best Practices You Already Implement in Your Classroom but Maybe Introduces You to Some New Strategies. Not as catchy, but more accurate.

To be connected means to share a common experience. It is not about sameness but about similarities in those experiences. This has a John Dewey quality. I paraphrase but essentially community is a space where we communicate things we hold and come to hold in common.

"Content curation is about sharing knowledge. By carefully selecting the right content and placing it in the right context, content curators transform information into knowledge. 

 

@Marc Rougier's post comes back on the results of our extensive survey on the status of knowledge sharing in the enterprise which measured how knowledge became a strategic asset for the enterprise - yet one that is largely underserved in terms of tools or platforms to manage its dissemination properly. 


"While there is consensus on the importance of sharing knowledge within organizations, current systems have not adapted to third-party content."


Here's how you can prepare your company to Knowledge 2.0."

Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.
