A school in the cloud: Sugata Mitra accepted the TED Prize at TED2013

A school in the cloud: Sugata Mitra accepted the TED Prize at TED2013 | Tech & Education | Scoop.it
Sugata Mitra is named the TED Prize winner at TED2013. He shares his wish—for a school in the cloud that encourages self-learning.

 

Mitra has a history of research to back up this wish. In 1999, he began what he calls his “hole in the wall” experiment. He carved a hole in a wall in a Delhi slum — about three feet high — and placed a computer in it. Kids had gathered around within a matter of hours and asked Mitra questions about what this thing was. He responded “I don’t know,” and walked away.

 

===> Soon the kids were surfing the internet — and teaching each other how to do it more effectively. <===

 

Mitra repeated the experiment 300 miles away, where computers even less familiar. He installed a mysterious computer on the side of a road. A few months later, he returned and found kids playing games on it.

 

Remembers Mitra, “They said, ‘We want a faster processor and a better mouse.’”

Another thing these kids said that was music to his ears:

 

“You’ve given us a machine that works only in English, so we had to teach ourselves English.”

 

Mitra says, “It was the first time I heard the words ===> ‘teach ourselves’

5E Cycle Integrates 21st Century Skills

5E Cycle Integrates 21st Century Skills | Tech & Education | Scoop.it

“Many school focus too much on achievement… (they need) to create opportunities for young people develop their learning muscles and their learning stamina through working on real problems… to reflect on and manage their own learning.” by Guy Claxton

 

The 5E model was developed by The Biological Science Curriculum Study (BSCS). The 5Es represent the five stages of a sequence for teaching and learning: Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaboration and Evaluate. The 5E model easily incorporates all 21st century skills (4c’s- create, critically think, communicate and collaborate) along with technology.

A very GOOD trick to use that is to show the students some tools and telling them that they are YOUR "Secret Tools" and give them the download link!

Lindsay Ahmann's curator insight, January 11, 2014 4:28 PM

This article shows a very interesting view of how emotional intelligence can be good and bad at the same time. It can be bad because people will focus mainly on that and it isn't their main task, but it can help in the way that they will know when something can be threatening the well-being of another friend/ co-worker. Being able to critically analyze someone's emotions can be hard because you won't always be right and it can be understood differently.

New Anti-Piracy System to Hit U.S. Internet Users on Monday

Starting Monday, most U.S. Internet users will be subject to a new anti-piracy system that could slow their Internet speeds to a crawl.

 

The CAS, designed as an "educational" service to combat casual piracy in the U.S., has been criticized as designed purely for corporate interests, at the expense of the average Internet user. While it doesn't require ISPs to cut off Internet access to repeat pirates — as is the case in France and New Zealand — it will issue escalating punishments to suspected pirates, severely reducing their connection speeds after five or six offenses.

With these offenses, it could serverely damage an online industry because of a select few individuals because the industries aren't making as much money. I personally think that this will backfire, like every other, as I like to call it, "chasing ghosts" operation the Government has taken on. I'd say whenever the Government declares war on an aspect of economics, it will fail. The Government will hurt consumers because of someone doing perceptively unlawful acts, while there could be legislation out there that could not affect innocent internet users with people who have engaged in Online Piracy, I have yet to see it and every piece of legislation has proven to be behind the ball and easily able to get around for people who choose not to abide by these laws.

What Good Teaching Looks Like: Digital Research | Tech & Education | Scoop.it

As per the Common Core State Standards students must incorporate digital research in their work.  I interpret this to mean that students need a twenty-first century version of book sense.  

 

We used to teach students how to find books in a library, how to determine who the author and illustrator is, and where to find copyright information.  We now need to teach them how to determine keywords, know how to search, be able to determine who created a particular web page and evaluate a page for bias and reliability.

Gianfranco D'Aversa's curator insight, January 23, 2013 2:03 PM

The goal of the Netherlands Wikiwijs program, when it was launched by the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science five years ago, was to mainstream the use of open education resources ("OERs") through an Internet-based portal. The Wikiwijs program enables all teachers in the Netherlands education system (primary, secondary and higher education) to search, find, create, develop and share all forms of multimedia learning materials.

 

The program, as its current project leader Robert Schuwer recently explained to me, has two components. The first enables teachers to find and access resources from educational and cultural institutions.

 

The second component is open education resources ("OERs") available under creative commons licenses where the sources of those resources are the teachers themselves. Hence, Dutch teachers are able to share their learning examples and best practices with their colleagues around the country. I asked Robert Schuwer, Associate Professor at the Open University Netherlands and a Project Leader of the Wikiwijs program, to discuss the successes and ongoing challenges of building Wikiwijs into a vibrant and enduring community based platform for all Dutch educators.

 

Professor Schuwer is also Chairman of the Special Interest Group OER for Higher Education and Chairman of the Nominating Committee for the Open Courseware Consortium.
