A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | share ideas on contemporary education | Scoop.it

"In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this 'pedagogy.' What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education."

I like this sober assessment. It moves beyond both the breathless predictions and harsh criticisms of the first round of discussions on education.

Finland's Secret Sauce: Its Teachers | Education Week

Finland's Secret Sauce: Its Teachers | Education Week | share ideas on contemporary education | Scoop.it

 

In the 1980s, educators and policy makers swarmed across Germany to examine its two-tier education system that separated college-bound students from vocational ed students, all in an effort to boost the national economy. In the 1990s, Japan and its unique lesson study model attracted American attention.

 

Along came the 2000s, and Finland has the starring role. A country that once didn't warrant much attention, Finland has zipped to the top in international measures of education, and American educators in particular want to know its secret.

 

"It was a surprise to us that we were so high on the PISA in 2000," said Leo Pahkin, councellor of education at the Finland National Board of Education who spoke to a group of American educators visiting Finland last month in a trip sponsored by PDK International. "We knew we had good readers but maths and science, that was a surprise to us."

 

The possible reasons for the Finnish success are many and complex, and it seems unlikely that the United States as a whole could or would ever embrace the deep changes that make possible Finland's success. But, a single state could embrace some of the Finnish components. One of those is teacher education.

 

"Stated quite plainly, without excellent teachers and a modern teacher education system, Finland's current international educational achievement would have been impossible," writes Pasi Sahlberg in his book, Finnish Lessons (Teachers College Press, 2011).

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly | share ideas on contemporary education | Scoop.it

The problem is that Wikipedia in the classroom has gotten a bad reputation in the K-12 world, undeservedly so I think. I would suggest that Wikipedia can be used for a multitude of educational purposes at a wide variety of grade levels. Too many teachers are still afraid to use it in class, so I’m here to right that wrong and show our educators how they can responsibly integrate Wikipedia into their lessons.

Ugh. I hate it when I do this. I accidentally scooped this article instead of rescooping yours. Thanks for sharing. Sometimes opening too many tabs causes bad habits for me.

Από το άρθρο:"

Be sure to check out Wikipedia’s own resources for teachers as well. They have an awesome 12-week syllabus showing you exactly how you can integrate Wikipedia into your classroom. They also have training designed especially for educators."

Giving these types of skills to students can help them with their understanding of writing and also help teachers with avoiding the copy and paste syndrome in tasks.
