A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | Contact North | Network Cogitation | Scoop.it
In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy.” What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education.
Stephen Gwilliam's insight:
Is there an opportunity for #TSNet school leaders and teachers here? How can we ensure the new UC education training investment identified in the Budget supports us in developing the necessary online instructional strategies to deliver online or blended mode learning for our students?

Erin Ryan's curator insight, October 18, 2015 9:05 AM

There is question around current evaluation practices and whether the observations done by principals are the most effective motivator in producing good teaching results. There is very evidence to suggest that incentive pay  or performance based rewards, based on value- add-ons, actually further develop a teacher's skills. Additionally, the contemporary principal, in reality, has very limited time to make teacher observations relevant and meaningful in practice because a good portion of their time is spent on discipline, and operational "stuff". Although observations are a required part of teacher evaluations,  principals need  find other ways to help teacher grow in their profession. One important way is to engage teachers in collaborative cultures, like those associated with professional learning communities, where they can focus on developing instructional practices that improve student learning.

The World Is My School: Welcome to the Era of Personalized Learning | World Future Society

Future learning will become both more social. Humans have always been learning, but how we learn has changed over time. The earliest means of education were highly personal: Oral histories passed from adults to children, informal or formal apprenticeships, and one-on-one tutoring have all been used in the early history of most cultures. It’s only been in the last two centuries that we’ve used formalized systems of mass public education (aka industrialized education).

11 Steps Of Effective Project-Based Learning In A Blended Classroom

In part 1 of this 6-part series, Thomas Stanley looked at an overview of blended learning, specifically the critical interactions of a blended learning model. In part 2, he looked specifically at student-to-student interaction, and the reality of synchronous and asynchronous access. In part 3, he looked at student-to-teacher interactions, and moving from instruction to becoming the “guide on the side,” and in part 4 he explored the idea of student-to-community interactions. Below in part 5, Stanley examines Student-to-material interactions as part of the blended learning model, specifically the process of project-based learning in a blended classroom.
Stephen Gwilliam's insight:
"What is the most effective way to get students to grapple with the subject matter? How can students be held accountable for their work? How can the synchronous and asynchronous technologies best be used to help students understand the different levels of learning? What does it take to make students accountable for their ideas and the information they are required to learn too?" Great questions for your staff and school board to consider!
