Daniela Sandoval Ordóñez's curator insight, April 28, 6:34 AM

El artículo es un claro ejemplo de la sociedad de la información, mostrando como de alguna u otra forma la tecnología nos ha reemplazado por decirlo así. Nos ha cambiado la vida, y nos la ha facilitado dándonos también diferentes herramientas para un óptimo y recreativo aprendizaje.

Es posible notar el cómo los mismos estudiantes ya aprenden autónomamente ya que los diferentes aparatos tecnológicos suprimen a lo que es el docente, siendo así los mismos alumnos los principales personajes y responsables dentro de su educación.

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 12, 2013 9:19 AM

Found this spot-on! Love the conclusion:

"Now is the time for us to be honest in assessing the shortcomings of our current solutions, optimistic in our vision for a better approach, and, most importantly, possessed of the will to change." 

Indeed! --Lou

 

Excerpt: "Two-thirds of United States 4th graders read below grade level, and the weakest ones are falling further behind, according to the U.S. Department of Education's 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress. In a 2011 report, the Annie E. Casey Foundation found that 16 percent of children who are not reading proficiently by the end of 3rd grade do not graduate from high school on time. And when we see business leaders questioning recent college graduates' competencies, such as the value of their diplomas and grade point averages, something's clearly wrong.

Worse still, the skills students acquire in school may not even translate to the modern workplace. According to findings from the market research firm International Data Corp., or IDC, that identify and analyze the skills required for the best jobs of the future, "While education reform is high on the agenda of many political leaders and aspirants, academic experts, and even many corporate leaders and entertainment icons, there remains debate regarding the relevance and aspirations of school requirements."

After years of accumulating performance deferments and declining success rates, it's time to hit the reset button. Schools are investing heavily in gadgets and devices without necessarily giving thought to reform through transformative smart models and learning tools. Digitizing analog materials and processes is not enough..."

Patch Self-help's curator insight, August 24, 2013 4:09 PM

In Finland there is also a development in mental health practice known as Open Dialogue. Look it up. In Nottingham there is a group of people trying to bring Open Dialogue to the UK starting locally. What is it? It is a way of treating people in distress with real care and understanding rather than sedating them with drugs and labeling them Psychotic for life with on going prescriptions. The best way to avoid side affects. It is a real education so do look up more about this and look out for MHAW in Nottingham where you can find an event focuswd on Open Dialogue in the orange leaflet out soon in Libraries and GP surgeries.

 

Dafnord 's curator insight, August 28, 2013 12:31 PM

15-åriga finska elever har fått fortfarande bästa resultat i internationella PISA-studier. Därför talar man om den "mytiska finska undervisningen". Jag tror att bakom den där framgången är viljan att lära sig. De förflutna tider har inte varit lätta för Finland. Kampen mot fattigdom, kampen för nationell existens, kampen för ett eget språk. Är det möjligt att just den hårda kampen har påverkat finnarna så att uppskattningen av kultur, bildning och lärning har utvecklat särskilt kraftigt bland medborgare? Jag bara frågar.

I live and work in China and deal with Chinese kindergarten/primary/middle school students regularly. If the Chinese minister for Education decides to drastically reduce the homework levels for primary and secondary education, I personally would like to shake him by the hand.
Chen Quan's curator insight, September 27, 2013 5:48 PM

I do not think the policy will  work and be implemented. Chinese and Chinese school have strong incentives to do a lot of homework for the colledge entrance examination. If that can't be changed , the no-homework policy will be on the paper only.
