Why Learning Through Social Networks Is The Future

Why Learning Through Social Networks Is The Future | Social Entrepreneur | Scoop.it

Learning to create, manage and promote a professional learning network (PLN) will soon become, if it’s not already, one of the most necessary and sought after skills for a global citizen, and as such, must become a prominent feature of any school curriculum.


Via Ilkka Olander, Bonnie Bracey Sutton
Ron Brenneman's insight:

It becomes clearer with each passing day that the "teacher imparting accumulated knowledge" model is over and done. The speed with which new information is developed requieres curriculums that teach processes, not content. Actually it requires a revamping of the entire educational industry, as the professional who stops learning throughout his or her career will go the way of the ox cart.

A Must Have Chart Featuring Critical Thinking Skills | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Social Entrepreneur | Scoop.it

Critical thinking is an essential skill in our life.It is through thinking critically that we get to sideline our biases(cultural, racial,ethnic...etc) and see the clear picture.Critical thinking is a sort of meta-thinking, that is thinking about thinking.

 

It is a key to self-reliance : memorize the solution to a particular problem and you may master the solution to that particular problem, but improve your critical thinking and you ll get yourself the tools to create your own effective solutions to a multitude of unfamiliar problems.

Education Revolution - Alternative Education Resource Organization | Social Entrepreneur | Scoop.it

"There is a worldwide network of learner-centered schools and programs for all age levels. This network is growing rapidly as people become more and more dissatisfied with an unchanging traditional system. It’s important to understand that if you believe that people are born natural learners you wouldn’t have competitive grades, forced homework, or even grade levels. Just think what an artificial situation it is, to be in a room every day with 25 or thirty people of your exact age. This will never again happen in your life! Why should children be socialized to that bizarre configuration?"
