Las pedagogías emergentes son "el conjunto de enfoques e ideas pedagógicas, todavía no bien sistematizadas, que surgen alrededor del uso de las TIC en educación y que intentan aprovechar todo su potencial comunicativo, informacional, colaborativo, interactivo, creativo e innovador en el marco de una nueva cultura del aprendizaje".
(Linda Castañeda y Jordi Adell)
The exponential growth in knowledge is speeding up the expedition to the era beyond knowledge consumption to innovating with knowledge. The rise of the Innovation Age is redefining the key skills needed for an individual to be a productive contributor to the society and economy. Individuals in an innovation context need to have the aptitude and competence of building new skills and knowledge through a life span. Pedagogical transformation is critical to empower learners to be self-directed and life-long learners. One approach for this transformation is Phenomenon-based learning.
Entre los informes aparecidos en el sector educativo y tecnológico y el gran auge de las mecánicas lúdicas en el ámbito empresarial, comercial y publicitario, la palabra de moda en los foros donde se piensan, trabajan y diseñan las experiencias futuras en todos esos ámbitos es “gamification”. En castellano, como nos suele suceder, aún estamos …
The book ‘Non Obvious’ by Rohit Bhargava present an intriguing exploration of how careful observation and thought can reveal emerging trends and as the subtitle suggest ‘predict the future’. For educators the ability to identify the trends which will deliver the best outcomes for our students from the noise of fads is alluring. While the talk of new technologies, of learner centric pedagogies and teaching for lifelong learning play the part of the obvious trends in education identifying the non-obvious trend is a more challenging endeavour.
Pero ¿qué es un POOC?Los POOC´s son Personalized Open Online Courses, es decir, Cursos Online Personalizados pero también pueden ser Participatory Online Courses, que en Español son Cursos OnLine Participativos.
There is something about human nature that draws us towards dichotomous patterns of thought; an all or nothing, us or them style of thinking in which an option is either good or it is bad. In such a model complexity and subtle nuance with multiple possible outcomes and routes towards a goal are ignored. The field of educational technology is one where such a pattern is evident and recent ban on technology by a Sydney school shows how this style of analysis can have a significant impact on student learning.
I really can’t describe how amazing this technology is. You have to get one and see for yourself! What is it? Google Cardboard is a virtual reality headset which immerses you in the video or picture so you can see a 360 degree view of an image or video. Put on the headset and you…
Mamá, ¿Porqué no podemos jugar en clases? esa fue la pregunta que me hizo uno de mis hijos hace pocos días y me motivó a escribir esta columna. Quizás hay miles de alumnos en el sistema escolar, que anhelan aprender de manera más entretenida. Esta vez, tomaremos una herramienta de ejemplo, que motivará a los profesores a gamificar sus clases y dar un respiro al papel y lápiz.
Learners’ use of digital tools and other technology to support their learning in our K-12 systems continues to be sporadic and often not observed despite the proliferation of use outside of school. Based on an analysis of three years of direct classroom observations in K-12 schools across 39 states and 11 countries, AdvancED found there are still relatively few classrooms in which the use of digital tools and technology is a regular part of a student’s school experience.
The role of the teacher is slowly but surely changing and with this come new challenges. Change becomes inevitable and processes for managing this and capitalising on the opportunities it brings becomes paramount within organisations. It is perhaps not surprising that educational institutions may evolve to become what are termed ‘Learning Organisations’ or ‘Professional Learning Communities’ within which there is a focus on the application of the principles of learning to manage change and explore new opportunities.
In a blog post, Philipp Schmidt, director of learning innovation at the Media Lab, described how blockchain works: "In essence, it is a just a distributed ledger to record transactions. What makes it special is that it is durable, time-stamped, transparent and decentralized. Those characteristics are equally useful for managing financial transactions as for a system of reputation. In fact, you can think of reputation as a type of currency for social capital, rather than financial capital."
You’ve done it. Go ahead and admit it. You’ve searched for your house on Google Maps. In fact the first place you looked in Google Earth and Street View was your house. But Google Map tools are not just a consumption tool, they can be a powerful creation tool for students to tell stories — stories of history, literature, science, and social studies.
Can technology effectively facilitate the development of competencies and character qualities, in addition to cognitive skills? If yes, what are the opportunities to capture to make it happen? What are the immediate, mid-term, and long-term barriers to remove? How can multistakeholders work together to create a roadmap for this vision?
In this piece I explore the idea of ‘Educating Silicon Valley.’ Silicon Valley’s high-tech companies, startups and culture of venture capital are, as Alistair Duff has argued in a new article, ‘the centre of a techno-economic revolution’ that is ‘now spreading outwards across the world, with major societal effects and implications.’ Surprisingly little research has been conducted on the Silicon Valley workers whose labour and learning contributes to this revolution. Here I try to piece together some sense of how education is being organized in Silicon Valley as an initial attempt to answer the question: how are the forms of knowledge, skills, practices and ways of thinking that contribute to a techno-economic revolution taught and learnt? And how does Silicon Valley seek to shape education to reproduce its centrality to the techno-economic revolution?
Higher education leaders have shifted focus from reducing costs and driving efficiencies toward using technology to enhance competitive advantage and support emerging business models, and ultimately, the institution's main missions of education and research, according to research from Gartner, Inc.
