Cutting-Edge-Teaching without Words: TEDTalk

In school, the dominant way of conveying ideas is through words. Words can be great barriers to learning. Matthew Petersen shows and explains how we can learn without words.Matthew Peterson, Ph.D., is Co-Founder, Senior Institute Scientist, and Chief Technical Officer of the MIND Research Institute. He is the creator of MIND's Math instructional software that teaches math to students using a unique non-language-based approach.

Language heavy teaching and learning is problematic for many kids.  Education system is set up for language dominant learners and teachers.  This is part of my complaint about the lecture format:  it is biased against so many people!

Exploring Curation as a core competency in digital and media literacy education

...

In his seminal white paper on participatory culture, media education scholar Henry Jenkins explored the capacity of new media technologies to facilitate critical inquiry, active exploration and vibrant dialog online. Wrote Jenkins et al. (2009):

"Participatory culture is emerging as the culture absorbs and responds to the explosion of new media technologies that make it possible for average consumers to archive, annotate, appropriate, and recirculate media content in powerful new ways. A focus on expanding access to new technologies carries us only so far if we do not also foster the skills and cultural knowledge necessary to deploy those tools toward our own ends" (p8).

Jenkins highlights the type of online activities that participatory spaces enable-archive, annotate, appropriate and recirculate-which occur in real time and in the context of abundant information flow. The habits that participatory technologies facilitate also offer a range of opportunities to facilitate more savvy information navigation, curation and appropriation. Jenkins (2006) identified a core set of key skills that "build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom." (p4). The identified skills- play, performance, simulation, appropriation, multitasking, distributed cognition, collective intelligence, judgment, transmedia navigation, networking, and negotiation - have at their core the ability to engage multimodal inquiry, multimedia platforms, and information abundance through curation.

Michele Ivanisevic's insight:

Curation is a useful tool to teach students how to filter the vast amounts of information they are exposed to each day. It provides curriculum links to media literacy and advances skills necessary to navigate an ever-changing world dictated by various technological elements.

'The Objective of Education Is Learning, Not Teaching' - Knowledge@Wharton

'The Objective of Education Is Learning, Not Teaching' - Knowledge@Wharton | The 21st Century Classroom: Technology, Teaching Strategies, PD | Scoop.it
'The Objective of Education Is Learning, Not Teaching' by Knowledge@Wharton, the online business journal of the Wharton School.
Michele Ivanisevic's insight:

Very interesting and relevant arguments presented in an easy to follow way. Explaining is only one form of education.. I identified with this quote:


"explainers must not only get the matter to fit comfortably into their own worldview, into their own personal frame of reference for understanding the world around them, they also have to figure out how to link their frame of reference to the worldview of the person receiving the explanation, so that the explanation can make sense to that person, too"


It highlights the importance of empathy in communication. Education is about far more than the required content that must be covered.

Michele Ivanisevic's comment, May 3, 2013 2:45 PM
Exposing students to multiple points of view and ways of thinking allows integrative thinking to emerge. Integrative thinking is rooted in history. Socrates was a great philosopher and teacher. People came from all over to hear his ideas. People also went to other philosophers to hear their thoughts. They developed an original viewpoint based on what they saw. These ideas become new philosophies. The person now becomes a philosopher. Picture the word "innovator" replacing "philosopher." Our students need to be exposed to multiple viewpoints. It is through holding these (sometimes opposing) ideas in your mind that innovation occurs.
