Et je ne pense pas que nous ayons  la meilleure école maternelle du monde...elle est pratiquement la seule du genre...Et de plus pas d'avancées significatives sur le rythme des enfants, sur les passerelles école -crêche, sur la relation avec la famille, sur les apprentissages sur les évaluations qui évaluent aussi les acquis des apprentissages hors de l'école (le langage par exemple..)

Schools Must Bring Creativity to Blended Learning

Schools Must Bring Creativity to Blended Learning | To learn or not to learn? | Scoop.it
Too often, schools bring only tepid energy to the blending of traditional and online learning, Charles Mojkowski says.

 

That sounds promising, but all of that capability must be matched by a worthy partner. And educators have been far from worthy. To the blend, they add a stale array of timeworn and tepid ingredients:

 

• A 20th-century school organizational structure;

• A fixation on providing the same learning outcomes for every student;

“Educators are failing to exploit the new and emerging technologies in ways that will give student learning opportunities the jolt they need.”
• A focus on external motivational techniques;

• A rigid curricular scope and sequence for all students;

• An asphyxiating and narrow assessment system; and

• A separation of in-school from out-of-school learning.

KC Beck's curator insight, October 3, 2013 12:20 PM

Creativity is an esential part of the blended learning. It is important to highlight the noncognitive skills that students possess. It also important to acknowledge that not all students learn the same. Competency-based education allows non-traditional learnings to compete with traditional learners.

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools | To learn or not to learn? | Scoop.it

The fact that knowledge is no longer fixed, but constantly evolving, and the speed at which new knowledge appears online have contributed to our sense of “information overload,” Weinberger said. And that leads to another way that our evolving sense of knowledge is transforming how we learn: We must learn to accept that true mastery is impossible.

Mobilizing Knowledge to Create Convenient Learning Moments

Mobilizing Knowledge to Create Convenient Learning Moments | To learn or not to learn? | Scoop.it

Chunks, bits and short modules make learning more manageable and easier to integrate into long-term memory. Long classroom or web-based training courses may accomplish the function of training, but rarely achieve desired retention rates. Instead of just dumping information on the learner, employees are expecting the content to be easy to find, relevant and digestible in the way their brains process information.

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | To learn or not to learn? | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

Chwayita Ceejay January's insight:'

A very interesting tool, that teachers can use inside and outside the formal learning area. Where students can interact with the information live during the lecture (where most interaction should happen anyway) closing the 'cold and insigificant' student-lecturer relationship. Students can respond to the data while the lecture is in progress. As expensive and time-consuming (training) this intiative would be to udertake it would certainly improve lecture attedance. :D

There is something powerful about allowing students to use their own devices in the classroom. These are the devices they use to navigate the world. They are also the devices they are most comfortable with. Both of those factors translate into more meaningful, relevant and engaged learning.

This is very interesting! I've never considered this idea! I would like to see some studies that prove this article right, however. I wonder why this is encouraged in most schools? I would love to hear more about this! 

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 13, 2013 2:33 AM

Instead of isolating themselves with their devices, students lean in and collaborate using the devices available. The trick is to design learning opportunities that encourage conversation and collaboration. This approach is more social and engaging for students anyway and allows teachers to leverage the collective intelligence in the room.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 16, 2013 4:12 PM

I think this is a great idea. We truly are moving into an era where technology is taking over and transforming our lives. The way we work and communicate are totally technological based. Teachers need to embrace this new era of technology, we are moving forward and they need to get with it or they will fall behind.

Connectivism as a Digital Age Learning Theory

George Siemens and Stephen Downes developed a theory for the digital age, called connectivism, denouncing boundaries of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism. Their proposed learning theory has issued a debate over whether it is a learning theory or instructional theory or merely a pedagogical view.

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | To learn or not to learn? | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.
