Working with people in my daily life and condition of vulnerability in central Sao Paulo. Education with digital inclusion has changed lives.

 

Sidnei Campos Pinto's comment, May 3, 2013 11:08 AM
The work of teaching and learning in young and adult literacy, digital inclusion, education for the media, has the role of providing people in vulnerable conditions in the central region of São Paulo, in Brazil, the recovery of full citizenship and the practice of justice social.
Sidnei Campos Pinto's comment, May 3, 2013 12:25 PM
The dynamics of the course has an entrepreneurial approach. There is a very natural and intuitive way to stimulate the ability of each student. The role of the teacher is no longer teaching but a mediator. Encouraging and show that the student is capable. It is not an easy task. You know how to use the power of collective intelligence (Levy, Pierre Pierre Levy) to achieve goals. Organization and replacement are sought within almost endless battles within each personal reality. There is a system of effective collaboration that does not allow this process to be interrupted.

Practical Guidance from MOOC Research: Persistence and Activity - Education Week (subscription) (blog)

Practical Guidance from MOOC Research: Persistence and Activity - Education Week (subscription) (blog) | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
MOOC research has a mixed record on helping us understand which students are likely to persist through a course.
Benjamin Carmel's insight:

If you're interested in MOOCs, this is worth a look. It hits on what I think is the critical issue: Intent. I'm less concerned in figuring out why learners don't complete MOOCs than in why they sign up. Capturing that initial intent to learn is where the magic is.

Benjamin Carmel's insight:

That's right: Career paths, professional development and "training" (whatever that means exactly, anymore) are now personal and portable. Smart organizations -- and even smarter workers -- are investing energy in teaching/learning the skills to develop personal knowledge.

Should Learning Content be in Perpetual Beta? – Guest post by Jay Cross

Should Learning Content be in Perpetual Beta? – Guest post by Jay Cross | Training, Learning and Instructional Design | Scoop.it
What is a "beta version"? "We could take beta off all of our products tomorrow, and we wouldn't actually have accomplished anything...If it's on there for five years because we think we're going to make major changes for five years, that's fine."  Google co-founder Larry Page Beta is the last, still buggy, version of software …

Jay Cross's curator insight, April 9, 2:36 PM

The meme of perpetual beta — that something’s not over with and may well get better if we work on it together — changes the relationship between buyer and seller.


When something is labeled beta, you expect it to have errors and are happily surprised if you don’t find any. Finding and helping correct flaws is one of the psychic rewards of the implicit bargain which makes the customer a happy co-developer.


Beta is an invitation for users and suppliers to co-develop improvements. Beta is a signal that the cement has not dried and you’re still open to making improvements.


Being in a beta relationship invites dialog instead of criticism. People are very forgiving if they are being listened to.
