Colleges say 'swathe of cuts' threatens adult education - About Education Degrees

Colleges say 'swathe of cuts' threatens adult education - About Education Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Adult education in England “will not exist by 2020″ if government cuts continue, colleges have warned.

The Association of Colleges says 190,000 adult education places will go next year, as funding is cut by 24%. Courses for health, public services and care, and information and communication technology (ICT) could be hardest hit.

Adult Education Degree Programs - About Education Degrees

Adult Education Degree Programs - About Education Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

As the name suggests, adult education programs prepare you to work with adult learners. The programs are based on adult learning philosophy, known as andragogy. In andragogy, learners are assumed to be self-motivated, self-directed, and have accumulated life experiences that need to be accounted for in course design and delivery. 

Campus-based and online education in adult education programs can lead to interesting and satisfying careers facilitating learning in adults.  This page provides information on what is studied in these programs, where you can study them, what the prospects are after completion, and more.

Storyboard That Offers ELA Teacher Guides -- THE Journal

Storyboard That Offers ELA Teacher Guides -- THE Journal | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Storyboard That has launched its first guides designed to help teachers use storyboards as an educational tool in an ELA unit.

Each teacher guide is focused on a specific unit like Greek Mythology, a famous literary work like Macbeth or an American classic like “The Raven.” Every guide contains at least seven detailed, Common Core-aligned activities with starter templates that teachers can use.

The company chose the activities based on feedback from teachers during the two years that Storyboard That has been in classrooms. Each activity comes with an extended lesson plan if a teacher wants to learn more.

The worth of a degree - Masters and PhDs

The worth of a degree - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

What is the worth of a degree? Some commentators maintain that degrees are a waste of time and money. It is certainly true that they are expensive in the US and many students find themselves to be in serious debt at the end of their studies. So is it worthwhile getting a degree?

The answer to this question depends on how you define ‘worth’. If you define it in terms of getting a job, then as the BLS analysis shows, you are more likely to be unemployed without a degree. If you define ‘worth’ in terms of earning potential, then you are more likely to earn more with a degree than without one. So, if worth is measured by earnings and employment prospects, then numerically a degree looks worthwhile.

Creation of audiovisual presentations as a tool to develop key competences | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This article describes a proposal to develop key competences through project-based learning. The project’s objective is the creation of a digital video. The study was carried out with students in their final two years of non-mandatory secondary-school, in the subject of “Physics and Chemistry”. The students created didactic documentary videos describing different aspects of kinematics. The planning of the project focused on to involve the students in all steps of the process, in order to be able to evaluate the competences developed during each part of the project.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

Synchronous e-learning: Reflections and design considerations | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This paper is a personal reflection on the design, development, and delivery of online synchronous conferencing as a pedagogical tool complementing traditional, face-to-face content delivery and learning. The purpose of the paper is to demonstrate how instructors can combine collaborative and virtual learning principles in course design. In particular, the paper asserts that instructors should take into account relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, and risk attributes of new technologies before incorporating them to their courses. Further, it is important to evaluate organizational support availability such as financial resources and managerial support.
