Uno de los desafíos más importantes en la educación no es solo superar la brecha digital,sino también que resulte significativa para nuestros alumnos. Para que no sea un desperdicio de tiempo,oportunidades el nuevo paradigma educacional no solo enfatiza la necesidad de aprender,sino del como. El currículo basado en competencias pretende la puesta en acción de lo aprendido, dar cuenta de los saberes. No podemos ignorar los cambios que la revolución digital ha traído,pretendiendo que los niños aprenden como décadas atrás, debemos sumarnos al progreso digital.Emplear las nuevas herramientas.

Muy buen artículo!!! Muy bien elegido. Gracias por compartirlo
Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 11:38 AM

I chose this article because I have a grave concern for the viability for public education and am always interested in hearing insights about what must be "fixed". Wasting gifts, talents and abilities - Yes, the educational system does not seem to value many unique and specific talents. Instead, test achievement is valued! The author says that "The other issue is that there are not many jobs in the world that pay people to be good test takers". I wholeheartedly agree! a pencil paper task does not necessarily suggest one's capability of learning and accomplishing specific tasks associated with an occupation or profession. Another thing that I'm contemplating from this article that is a very complex issue: "...there is a danger of educational technology shaping us more than us shaping the technology". I believe that this threshold is sometimes exceeded. Electronic resources are meant to compliment and augment teaching.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | Smart Media | Scoop.it

Creativity is about fresh thinking. It doesn’t have to be new to the whole of humanity— though that’s always a bonus— but certainly to the person whose work it is. Creativity also involves making critical judgments about whether what you’re working on is any good, be it a theorem, a design, or a poem. Creative work often passes through typical phases. Sometimes what you end up with is not what you had in mind when you started. It’s a dynamic process that often involves making new connections, crossing disciplines, and using metaphors and analogies. 

.

Being creative is not just about having off-the-wall ideas and letting your imagination run free. It may involve all of that, but it also involves refining, testing, and focusing what you’re doing. It’s about original thinking on the part of the individual, and it’s also about judging critically whether the work in process is taking the right shape and is worthwhile, at least for the person producing it.

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | Smart Media | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.

 

===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===

 

Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

How to Fix 7 Counterproductive Learning Habits | #LEARNing2LEARN

How to Fix 7 Counterproductive Learning Habits | #LEARNing2LEARN | Smart Media | Scoop.it
At some point in our lives, we’ve all practiced some counterproductive learning habits. We’ve sabotaged ourselves without realizing it, and found ourselves stuck. There have been failures we believe have defined our potential. We’ve obsessed over perfect solutions and singular pathways. In frustrated moments we’ve refused help from others, thinking acceptance means weakness. We’ve done this as teachers, students, friends, and parents.


These are not crimes; they’re part of what makes us human. Our counterproductive learning habits usually come from what we observe and hear. We pick things up as children from well-intentioned adults in our lives. In addition, the experiences of others constantly unfold right in front of us. We observe actively, and we remember.


Eventually we come to believe that what we see is how things are, and that it never changes. We know now that this doesn’t have to be the case. We know now that we can create our own experiences. Let’s make them good ones when it comes to learning.

Personalize Learning: Learning can and should be Natural and Engaging | Learning by Doing | Smart Media | Scoop.it

Apply New Learning Often and in Meaningful Contexts 
The more you can apply what you're learning to your every day, the more it'll stick in your head. The reason is simple. When you're learning by doing, you're implementing everything that makes our memory work. When you're able to connect what you're learning with a real world task, that forms the bonds in your brain, and subsequently the skills you're learning will stick around. 

.

We learn best when we have context, and that applies to new skills as much as it does random facts in school. That's why something like the transfer of learning is helpful when you’re learning a new skill. This means you're applying your new skills in your day to day life in a context that matters.
