What is Education 3.0

Education 3.0

This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page . Education 3.0 describes a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century. The work of Prof. James G.

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.

 

Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.

 

Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]

IMHO (in my humble opinion), keyboard skills are important but do not trump thinking, literacy and math skills.

"Teaching and Learning with The New York Times"

 

So you’re teaching “Huck Finn” — or “Romeo and Juliet,” “1984,” “Catcher in the Rye” or any other classic work of literature — and you want students to see for themselves that the ideas in it are still relevant. Also, you’re well aware that the Common Core standards ask teachers across the curriculum to include more nonfiction. Where do you start?

 

This post, we hope, can help.

 

On Nov. 22, Katherine Schulten and Sarah Gross are presenting a workshopat the annual National Council of Teachers of English convention called “Ripped from the Headlines and Applied to the Classics: Pairing Fiction and Nonfiction, With Help From The New York Times.”

 

In lieu of the Skills Practice lesson we usually do together on Fridays, we’re linking below to all the resources we’ll be describing so you can bookmark this page and keep them all in one place.

 

First, though, a game.

 

We’re asking the participants in our session to play it, but you can simply hand it out to your students — with or without today’s New York Times in front of them: Literary Quote Bingo (PDF. We love bingo, as you may havenoticed.)

Educators--the NYT is doing a great service in providing companion titles and activities for classic and even not so classic literature. Don't let this resource go untapped in your teaching repertoire!

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 19, 2015 8:21 PM

.Educational leaders are creators, mentors, coaches, managers, counselors, writers, technicians, disciplinarians, and so much more. Our jobs are complex and we wear many hats. But mostly importantly is  Every action every moment of every day needs to be to the positive benefit of the students in the school. Shared leadership and collaboration are key elements in the success of schools.

Kristen Suarez's insight:

Here are some CCSS writing rubrics that are aligned to all grade levels. Very comprehensive as far as the writing standards go, but they do not quite include measures for grammar and mechanics. Still worth a look!

Dr. Dea Conrad-Curry's curator insight, January 20, 2014 11:29 AM

I've taken a look at these rubrics and my opinion: Good! The only change I'd make is to address some of the grade-specific grammar and usage standards.
