The Future of Education: Transcending the Status Quo | edCircuit | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Perhaps the main reason for this disappointing impact is that the inclusion of technologies has done little to change the “tell and practice” approach to teaching and learning — the predominant pedagogical practice of our time. In this model, teachers tell students what knowledge is and what knowledge is worth knowing; students meanwhile invest their vast capacity for creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration by memorizing and practicing what they were told. The overarching goal of this model is simply for students to accurately repeat the information they were told.

"One category of digital tools, making thinking visible, can give students a higher level of confidence to ask questions when they need help, or share their opinions and ideas with the rest of the class — leading to more thoughtful discussions. These same tools inform educators about how to plan for much more meaningful lessons."

Rethinking information literacy through understanding disciplinary information practices @edwardluca #i3rgu

Rethinking information literacy through understanding disciplinary information practices @edwardluca #i3rgu | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The next session I attended at the i3 conference was Edward Luca (an academic librarian at the University of Sydney) on Truly embedded librarianship: rethinking information literacy through understanding disciplinary information practices in higher education.
Starting as a subject librarian in pharmacy, his question to the literature was "how can we embed information literacy within a disciplinary context". The conclusions seemed to be that information literacy was genrally left to librarians, and that is was dominated by one-shot sessions, which may not be contextualised. He noted that the solution to this was often aiming to tie the IL education to student needs for assignments. However, there did appear to be a lack of real collaboration between librarian and faculty.
The value of "embedded" librarianship was seen as it being user-oriented, with closer collaboration, with sometimes even physical embedding within a department. Luca moved on to look at varying information practices within disciplines, and relating information literacy to that.

Can technology replace teachers? You asked Google – here’s the answer

Can technology replace teachers? You asked Google – here’s the answer | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Anxiety about losing your job to technology is both a rational and growing fear. Andy Haldane, the chief economist at the Bank of England, recently estimated that 15m jobs in the UK were threatened by automation. Technology is reaching such levels of sophistication that it is capable not only of manual tasks but cognitive ones too, putting a wide range of jobs are at risk. The areas most vulnerable include driving and administrative work. But according to a report from Oxford University that looked at over 700 areas of work, teaching at all levels across the educational spectrum is a safe bet.

Classrooms will continue to change shape, but it’s safe to assume that there will be a human teacher at the front of them for a long time yet."

How we teach the arts is as important as the fact we're doing it | Michael Rosen | The Guardian

How we teach the arts is as important as the fact we're doing it | Michael Rosen | The Guardian | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

I think we should be cautious about the claims we make for the arts in education. We need to make sure that how we do the art is as important as the fact that we're doing it. After all, it's quite possible to do arts in education in ways which, say, undermine children. For instance, it's quite possible to be authoritarian and dictatorial while doing the arts – and more often than not this will teach children that they should just obey orders or that the arts are about being bossy or snooty.

For practitioners of all kinds, I've sketched out a checklist, as much for myself as others, to keep in mind how best to ensure that arts in education is worthwhile for all.

School burnout and engagement profiles among digital natives in Finland: a person-oriented approach: European Journal of Developmental Psychology: Vol 13, No 6

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, June 28, 7:51 AM

ABSTRACT

Applying a person-oriented approach, this study set out to examine what profiles

of school engagement and school burnout (i.e., exhaustion, cynicism, inadequacy)

can be identified among elementary school children at age 12, a generation also

often referred to as the generation of digital natives. We compared the group

memberships in their use of socio-digital technologies and related functioning as

we expected to find a gap between some digital natives and current educational

practices which do not include socio-digital technology in feelings of cynicism

towards school. Latent profile analysis identified five groups: Engaged (50%)

students, who formed the majority; Stressed (4%) students, who reported high

exhaustion and high inadequacy as a student; Students High in cynicism (burnout

group) (5%) with high scores on all the components of school burnout, particularly

cynicism, but also on exhaustion and inadequacy as a student; students Moderate

in Cynicism (15%), whose cynicism was directed in particular towards studying and

school; and, finally, students Emerging Cynicism (bored group) (26%), whose feelings

of cynicism were nevertheless elevated. These results thus revealed that almost

half (46%) of the elementary students felt some degree of cynicism towards school,

thereby supporting our gap hypothesis: these groups of cynical students reported

that they would be more engaged at school if socio-digital technologies were

used at school. These results indicate that one way to promote the engagement

of cynical students might be to offer them the possibility to make greater use of

socio-digital technologies at school.
