What’s the point of education if Google can tell us anything? | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

Such debate about the place and purpose of online searching in learning and assessments is not new. But rather than thinking of ways to prevent students from cheating or plagiarising in their assessed pieces of work, maybe our obsession with the “authenticity” of their coursework or assessment is missing another important educational point.

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments.

The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this.

In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.

Tecnologia informacional precisa ser holisticamente integrado em nossos ambientes de aprendizagem.
A integração da tecnologia da informação em nossos ambientes de aprendizagem únicos pode ser muito maior se aplicar abordagens construtivistas. Tais abordagens podem incluir, mas não estão limitados a aprendizagem pela descoberta, a aprendizagem baseada na investigação, aprendizagem baseada em jogo e tomada. Mas eles também incluem ouvir, refletir, e tomando o tempo para processar. Essencialmente, queremos que nossos alunos para se tornarem grandes pensadores. Queremos que os alunos a ter um papel activo no processo de aprendizagem e se afastar da regurgitação passiva da informação que está sendo passada de um professor para um aluno. Infusão eficaz da tecnologia da informação em nossos ambientes de aprendizagem é uma excelente maneira de conseguir isso. Em nosso mundo, tecnologia da informação não é apenas um meio para um fim. É mais sobre a informação e como podemos usá-lo que é o mais importante. Como encontrá-la, como processá-lo, como usá-lo, e como construir sobre ele. A tecnologia que usamos facilita e re-formas esse uso da informação em muitas novas formas. Por exemplo, não são mais que seguir a aprendizagem de uma forma linear, digamos, baseado em um livro de texto. Em vez disso, estamos a trabalhar em estruturas flexíveis, onde os alunos podem se concentrar em grandes idéias, mas seguem a sua aprendizagem ao longo de vários caminhos acontecendo tudo de uma vez no ambiente de aprendizagem.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”

How “Playing With Technology” Led Me to the Job of My Dreams

How “Playing With Technology” Led Me to the Job of My Dreams | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

"What an awesome TED Talk! The description is: “What happens when you’re looking for a job in the middle of a recession? Stop doing what people tell you to do. Charlie Hoehn talks about making up your own rules and how he started only working on things he wanted to pursue and how it changed his life.” I completely agree with Charlie’s premise that we don’t find the work we love with a college degree. We pigeon-hole ourselves into a niche where we have to search on Monster.com for a job, and then despise the search results. Or we write on our resumes “proficient in Microsoft Office” and then wonder why no one cares."

Rise of the Teacherpreneur | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

"You’ve heard the term “entrepreneur.” You’ve probably even heard the term “edupreneur.” But do you know what the term “teacherpreneur” means? As you can probably intuit, “teacherpreneurs” are teachers who create their own educational product or service to fix a problem they or they colleagues have encountered in the classroom. This is distinct from an edupreneur, which can be interpreted to mean any entrepreneur working in the education space – teacher or not."

Making any sort of prediction for the future of technology is fraught with  difficulty and Chris Dede’s analysis published as 'Planning for

2005 it hints at things yet to come and the possibility of virtual reality
environments to allow for ‘situated learning’ to occur within classrooms
without access to exotic locations or facilities. Chris’ emphasis is on
immersion in a virtual world, a digitally constructed reality

The Difference Between Praise and Feedback

The Difference Between Praise and Feedback | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
Parenting these days is patrolled by the language police. Sometimes it seems like the worst thing you could ever say to a kid is “Good job!” or the dreaded, “Good girl!” Widely popularized psychological research warns about the “inverse power of praise” and the importance of “unconditional parenting.” What are these researchers really getting at? Are the particular words we use to talk to our kids so important? And how do we convey positive feelings without negative consequences?

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield. Why not apply the process to education?

He is correct, schools are not factories that create duplicate models of a prototype.  Schools are also not a business, where the latest organizational model makes the system effective.  Schools are more like a community, where everyone works together to accomplish the goals developed collaboratively by all stakeholders in the community.  Notice that state and federal politicians are not in the community.

Aprender com a experiência direta pode ser mais eficaz se conjugada com a reflexão, isto é, a tentativa intencional de sintetizar, abstrato, e articular as principais lições ensinadas pela experiência.


Refletindo sobre o que foi aprendido torna a experiência mais produtiva.


Reflexão constrói sua confiança na capacidade para atingir um objetivo (ou seja, auto-eficácia), que por sua vez se traduz em taxas mais elevadas de aprendizado.

Gleaned from research into brain development and human behavior, a toolkit is emerging on how to best respond to and encourage students’ grit, persistence, and the ability to learn from one’s mistakes.
