Μαθαίνω Πληροφορική δίχως Υπολογιστή

Μαθαίνω Πληροφορική δίχως Υπολογιστή | ICT in Education | Scoop.it

Το εκπαιδευτικό πρόγραμμα “Ο Απόστολος στην Πυθωνία” σχεδιάστηκε για να εξοικειώσει τους μικρούς μαθητές στους πέντε βασικούς τύπους μεταβλητών στον προγραμματισμό Ηλεκτρονικών Υπολογιστών μέσα από το θεατρικό παιχνίδι. Το πρόγραμμα αγκαλιάζει με αγάπη τη λογοτεχνία και τα μαθηματικά και η καινοτομία του βασίζεται στην ανάμιξη απλών στοιχείων που γνωρίζει ένα παιδί για την κατανόηση βασικών εννοιών Πληροφορικής, δίχως να απαιτείται ύπαρξη Ηλεκτρονικού Υπολογιστή.

Σύμφωνα με το εκπαιδευτικό πρόγραμμα, η θεία Μνήμη είναι συγγραφέας. Κι όπως κάθε συγγραφέας, γράφει τις πολύτιμες σκέψεις της στα χαρτιά της ή όπως αλλιώς τα αποκαλεί: τα αντικείμενά της. Πάνω στα χαρτιά της έχει γράψει αριθμούς, γράμματα, λέξεις και λογικές απαντήσεις.

Most importantly we need to be empowering our learners to take charge of their learning, to show them how they may control their pathways and become genuinely agent learning. Such a process is a significant shift for educators and our knowledge of the processes of learning rather than our subject knowledge is what matters most.

Actually, people have different strategies to learn or study, one of them is Personal Learning Networks. Thanks to the technology, this is strategy is easier and useful since we can study with other people through forums, debates, social Medias, etc… E-learning has some advantages such as no geographical barriers, meet new people, cultures, ideas and thoughts also collaboration is more evident in learning networks than in traditional networks. Some tips to make your e-learning more successful is being active in the process, understanding that contribute with information is important as receive all that information and being clear about the guidelines. E-learning Networks give you a lot of opportunities to increase your knowledge.

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology | ICT in Education | Scoop.it
Just like anything else that involves human experience or interaction, the act of learning does not happen in a vacuum. It is at the intersection of prior knowledge, experience, perception, reality, comprehension, and flexibility that learning occurs. In years past, the traditional learning paradigms of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism have been the benchmarks against which the learning process has been measured. What happens, though, when you throw into the mix all the technological advancements that have come about over the last 40-50 years? These theories certainly do not become obsolete by any means, but they do need to be used in a very different way to be able to incorporate the attributes of a 21st century learning environment. In today’s technology-rich society, it has become increasingly important to learn how to learn. Vail put it simply by declaring that learning must be a way of being (1996).
