I am certain digital technologies will be part of the future. I am just not convinced we know how they will be. It will make the journey more interesting not knowing.

Jane Hadjion's curator insight, August 18, 2014 8:04 PM

Learning or education and the industries employing need to work together to close the gap. The cycle for updating learning cannot continue to be so great or we need to change strategies and accept the irrelevance of some of the content we deliver.

Hands-Off Teaching Cultivates Metacognition

Hands-Off Teaching Cultivates Metacognition | Socratic Education and Radical Radicles | Scoop.it
Students learn better when their "thinking" includes thinking about the material plus how to dig in, break it apart, understand it, and build on that.
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Metacognition is "thinking about thinking" and we believe that before we can teach effectively, our students need to learn how to learn productively.  They do this by studying what it means to communicate, how to think about language, the function of a healthy brain, and by practicing the helpful analytical tips and tricks used in philosophy.

Big Think

Big Think | Socratic Education and Radical Radicles | Scoop.it
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Parents, Teachers, and Students are constantly seeking the best sources of information but we are saturated with opinions, factoids, and spurious references. Big Think is a collective of intelligent individuals who curate the most relevant, interesting, and useful content so that we can access the expert's knowledge directly.

As much as educators want to be as well informed as possible for their students, sometimes watching a video about the structure of the internet from Tim Berners-Lee or learning about how mushrooms can clean up oil spills from a mycologist with 30 years of research is just good quality teaching too.

 

In ‪#‎21stCenturyEd‬ educators are facilitators, the 'guide on the side', not necessarily the 'sage of the stage'. Big Think is another great resource for our students and ourselves.

How to manage for collective creativity

How to manage for collective creativity | Socratic Education and Radical Radicles | Scoop.it
What's the secret to unlocking the creativity hidden inside your daily work, and giving every great idea a chance? Harvard professor Linda Hill, co-author of "Collective Genius," has studied some of the world's most creative companies to come up with a set of tools and tactics to keep great ideas flowing -- from everyone in the company, not just the designated "creatives."
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Does your work, or your child's education, foster the capabilities of‪#‎innovation‬? This great TedTalk by Linda Hill points out the competencies common to innovative communities and how by cultivating these concepts and skills we unleash creative potential.

 

We should teach and learn the skills to manage Creative Abrasion, Agility, and Resolution. This includes communicating (speaking and listening) clearly and confidently, leadership styles and when each is effective, andhow to leverage ambiguity within design-thinking, just to name a few.


Her message shares the importance of finding people who challenge each other to be critical and who can improve productivity through iterative approaches to opportunity generation.
What a great model as we at IteratED set out to innovate educational opportunity in BC and beyond.

 

Have a great day!

10 Ways to Teach Innovation

10 Ways to Teach Innovation | Socratic Education and Radical Radicles | Scoop.it
Innovation and the current classroom model most often operate as antagonists. The system is evolving, but not quickly enough to get young people ready for the new world. But there are a number of ways that teachers can bypass the system and offer students the tools and experiences that spur an innovative mindset. Here are ten ideas.
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

Innovation is a wildly popular buzzword.   The 21st-century education movement has embraced it and is redefining student achievement, pedagogy, and even the instructional programming model (i.e. where, how long, arrangement, physical layout, resources, communication direction and style, etc.). 


Here are 10 great concepts to get you thinking about how you can promote innovative thinking and practices in you classrooms.


PARENTS:   Education of 21st-century students goes beyond the conventional classroom walls.  How are you encouraging innovative practices in the home and with your family?   What systems in your home could use improvement?   Too many shoes by the front door?  Are the cupboards in the kitchen too full to make retrieving things easy?  How are you sorting your waste, compost, and recycling?


Challenge your kids to seek out opportunities to improve small systems and allow them the freedom to iterate on their attempts.  These simple things can promote iteration and spawn some great innovations.


Have a great day!

New Learning Environments for the 21st-Century - by John Seely Brown

W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

New Learning Environments in the 21st-Century is a wonderful academic piece that examines how changes in the ecology of learning, that is the introduction of the internet, has and will continue to profoundly impact mainstream education and scholarship in general.

I say mainstream because the author rightly points out that the resurgence of cognitivist and social constructivism can trace it's roots back to Dewey and other such progressive educators in the early 20th century. The practices of educators such as Montessori, Steiner, Dewey, Hahn, etc were for a long time marginalized but are now enjoying a renaissance in the digital age.

Dewey Famously said "If we teach today as we taught yesterday, then we rob our children of tomorrow." The irony is that we now look back 100 years to educators such as Dewey for pedagogies that will guide us boldly into our future.

Iteration is the process of building on previous success, establishing what in the system can be improved, and what can be omitted. The educators listed above have always inspired us and we are excited to see their work gaining the prominence it deserves. Applying these pedagogies in conscientious ways we see significant benefit for our students, families, and communities as a whole.

They do not contain the answers. The people and communities described are just starting to figure out what students need to flourish in today’s world and the sort of learning that delivers it. Follow their story with us.

W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

15 years into the 21st-century and there has been lots of talk and an incredible focus on implementing education technology.  This article summarizes what we at IteratED believe, which is that the judicious application of technology can be an exceptional tool for learning but that it is the core competencies learned from effective teacher that are driving high performing schools.


The New Pedagogies for Deep Learning is one of the most compelling and energizing initiatives that I have come across to date.


I rarely say this but as a parent of a child in school, a teacher, educator, or administrator, this article is a must read and the NPDL is an organization to watch.  Well done.


Quote from the website:

"(Fullan) wrote, technology wasn’t a solution in and of itself. It was just a tool, like pen and paper. The change he had seen in schools like Park Manor wasn’t driven by technology, but, rather, driven by new approaches to teaching and learning that were made possible by technology. In particular, Fullan had seen technology transform the dynamic between teachers and students in the classroom as teachers no longer filled the traditional role of holders of knowledge — but it was exploiting this new relationship that drove improvements in learning, not technology itself."
