The Future of Learning: Don't get caught with your paradigm down

Sharing with you my own presentation which I recently used when I addressed many school principals in the hope that it would ignite robust leadership action to transform their schools. Was excited to be advised by SlideShare that my presentation has been featured for next 16-20 hours.

Principals' Institute March-May 2012 in Cape Town, Port Elizabeth, Sandton, Pretoria, Midrand, Pietermaritzburg, Durban , South Africa.

32. Personal Learning Environments PLEs are not only personal web tools and personal learning networks. PLEs are much wider than this, taking in experiences Steve Wheeler, University of Plymouth, 2011 Personal and realia, as well as learning through Learning Personal TV, music, paper based Network Learning materials, radio & more formal contexts. Environment Learning content is not as important now as where (or who) to connect to, to find it. Personal PWTs are any web Web Tools tools, (usually Web 2.0) chosen by learners to support their lifelong learning. Source: http://steve-wheeler.blogspot.com/2010/07/anatomy-of-ple.html

"This week [June 1, 2012] Google launched a new project called the World Wonders Project. The goal of the project is to let people explore ancient and cultural sites around the world up close. It sounds sort of like Street view for history and archaeology buffs. The World Wonders Project currently has 132 ancient and cultural sites located in 18 different countries for people to view."

TechCrunch | 1M Users Strong, Schoology Grabs $6M To Take On Blackboard, Moodle

TechCrunch | 1M Users Strong, Schoology Grabs $6M To Take On Blackboard, Moodle | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
Schoology, the makers of a one-stop, cloud-based learning management system for primary and secondary schools, is announcing today that it has closed a $6 million Series B round of venture funding.

...

Schoology’s vision for its technology also extends beyond the classroom, as any organization that wants to offer continued learning or on-the-job training can use the platform as an educational tool for its workers. Groupon, for example, has been using Schoology for sales field training, offering sales managers the opportunity to quickly educate new employees by sharing its own proprietary materials that need to be learned.

...

They can then offer quick quizzes and tests on the material, upload new guidelines, and offer a general resource for revisiting sales, best practices, etc.It’s no easy feat to offer an interface that remains intuitive both during basic, say, homework sharing, and in its more complex user management functions. Keeping the barriers low enough so that it can be used effectively in classrooms or at a corporate level to train and educate employees, while offering enough customization for both use cases is a difficult line to walk.

...

But Schoology seems to be finding the balance as a full-service, cloud-based learning management system that looks good and is actually easy to use.

Snapguide Makes Anyone a Guide NY times

Snapguide Makes Anyone a Guide NY times | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

By Nick Bilton

 

"This weekend I’m going to learn how to make tofu. I’m not going to take a class, or use a cookbook, I’m going to follow instructions from a new iPhone and iPad application called Snapguide.

 

"Snapguide, a free application and Web site that became available to the public Thursday (3/29/12), allows people to create a guide, for just about anything using videos, photos and words on a mobile device."

 

This should be very useful for teachers and students to create directions and how-tos. -JL
