Learning Without Frontiers Summit Cancelled

Learning Without Frontiers Summit Cancelled | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

It is with sincere regret that we must inform our community that the Learning Without Frontiers Summit in London will not now take place this June.

You don’t need us to remind you of the current challenges facing the economy in general, and education in particular. But sadly, due to this unusually difficult economic environment we have been unable to secure sufficient commercial sponsorship support for LWF London early enough to be certain that we could run a superb event to the exacting standard we expect. We have spent eight years gaining the trust of this community and, in simple terms, we do it right, or not at all.

 
Stewart-Marshall's insight:

Great shame  it had to be cancelled :-(

Your Students Should Be Coding (Five Sites to Get Them Started) — Emerging Education Technologies

Your Students Should Be Coding (Five Sites to Get Them Started) — Emerging Education Technologies | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Survey information suggests that nine out of 10 U.S. schools do not teach computer programming. This is especially alarming considering the growth of the field – estimates indicate nearly 1.4 million jobs will open over the next decade with only 400,000 graduates prepared to fill them.

 

More than the utilitarian function of filling job vacancies, though, is the pedagogical value inherent in coding. Learning computer coding is non-subject specific, lending itself to interdisciplinary lessons that integrate math, science, English, art and a variety of other subjects. Students simultaneously balance logical reasoning, creativity and problem solving in real-world scenarios.

Five years ago I was trying every new tech tool to come out. I was glogging with glogster. I was threading with voice thread. And I sure was writing and editing in real-time with Google Docs!

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News)

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Whether it’s Minecraft or duct tape wallets, the childhood passions that seem like fads, if not totally unproductive, can alternatively be seen as mediums for experiencing the virtuous cycle of curiosity: discovering, trying, failing and growing. At DIY, we’ve created a way for kids to explore hundreds of skills and to understand the ways in which they can be creative through them. Often, the skills are unconventional, and almost always the results are surprising. I don’t think it’s important that kids use the skills they learn on DIY for the rest of their lives. What’s important is that kids develop the muscle to be fearless learners so that they are never stuck with the skills they have. Only this will prepare them for a world where change is accelerating and depending on a single skill to provide a lifetime career is becoming impossible.

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield. Why not apply the process to education?

Video conferencing and chat tools can be a wonderful instructional resource, as most educators know. You can bring the outside world and guests into your classroom, enable a sick or disabled student to present from home and interact with the class, get to know online students better and have more constructive conversations than voice alone permits. The possibilities are endless!

If you know children aged between about six and 14, then you have probably heard of Minecraft.

Minecraft is a digital game, a popular cultural phenomenon and a powerful platform for learning. It is one of the most successful digital games of all time and continues to grow in popularity.

Educators have a great interest in Minecraft because children and young people seem to be driven to learn new knowledge and skills to play the game with a passion that they often lack for their everyday schooling.
