From observation to breakthrough | Harold Jarche | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

"From multiple observations come ideas. From multiple ideas can come new insights. From multiple insights we can create stories. From our stories, we can change beliefs. In a nutshell [my interpretation], this is what Gunther Sonnenfeld discusses in much greater detail in The Great Planning Paradigm. Sonnenfeld’s post is focused on marketing, an area where I have little experience.



I find The Great Planning Paradigm is a good framework to look at innovation (breakthroughs) in general. It also aligns with personal knowledge management (PKM) or those routine behaviours that we can practice and perfect in order to enhance learning and innovation at an organizational level. The PKM framework of Seek-Sense-Share has several similarities. Observations equate to Seeking. Insight equates to Sensing. Telling stories equates to Sharing. It is most interesting to see a connection between PKM and marketing, something I would not have considered. Everything, it seems, is connected..."

Myths of Technology Series: "Technology Will Replace Face-to-Face Interaction" | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

We have to see that for some students, technology actually can provide them the voice that they have never had before.  I spoke to one student that said the use of social media actually inspired them to start speaking publicly because they developed confidence through a medium that worked for them.  I think of how many students would benefit and feel more comfortable talking in public when they would be allowed to use a medium that works for them first.

We wanted to transition from traditional education to a flexible, 21st century model, and we were determined to support our schools in any way we could," Song says. So far, the district has invested in new networking equipment, Wi-Fi and about 5,000 Acer, HP and SamsungChromebooks.

 

Innovative districts such as MUSD are recognizing that they can no longer take a business-as-usual approach to instruction. Today's students — and, increasingly, teachers — are tech-savvy, and they want an interactive and engaging classroom experience. To adapt, these districts are investing in more technology and embracing new instructional models.

 

IT leaders from these districts say it's important to get technology into the hands of every child and to extend the classroom beyond the school day, so they're focusing their limited budgets on mobile devices, cloud applications and other online educational content. They're also building out their wireless infrastructures to support all of these new efforts.

How technology is changing the skills we need to learn

How technology is changing the skills we need to learn | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

A while back, Bill Keller of The New York Times stirred up a hornet’s nest when he wrote a column worrying that joining Facebook would have a debilitating effect on his 13 year-old daughter’s intellectual faculties.  Technology advocates, including me, pounced.

Now there are new studies out that seem to support his argument.  One shows that using search engines decreases our memory and another suggests that GPS may atrophy our brains.  Discovery magazine has collected a half-dozen similar examples on its site.

I think the question itself is misplaced.  Clearly, we use technology to do things for us that we no longer are doing for ourselves and that means certain abilities degenerate.  Yet, it also means that we are freeing up cognitive energy for other things.  So what’s really important is not the skills we are losing but those that we need to develop.

Five ways that 21st and 20th Century Learning will differ

Five ways that 21st and 20th Century Learning will differ | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

How will teaching and learning in the early 21st century differ from its 20th century predecessor? Some shifts are already well underway. These include the growing embrace of open educational resources and of courses collaboratively designed and developed by teams including content area specialists, educational technologists, and instructional designers. Peer mentoring and grading are becoming more common, as is a gradual shift toward learner-centered pedagogies and competency-based, outcomes-oriented approaches.

You’ve implemented mLearning: Now how do you sustain interest?

You’ve implemented mLearning: Now how do you sustain interest? | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

One of the things I always like doing is talking to our customers about 6 months after our mobile performance support tool (Upside2Go) has been implemented in their organization. A common thread I've noticed is there is a lot of initial excitement/activity during the mobile app roll out period the first few months.Yet as the initial wave is done with, the number of new users or even existing users may not be as high as they were at kickoff.

 

So what happened?

 

I would attribute the initial burst of energy in the rollout stage as something along the lines of the ‘wow’ factor. As in,” Wow!!! We have an app that is available on iPhone, Android and Blackberry, Wow!!! It's much more fun and cool viewing this course on the mobile device than on a desktop, Wow!!! I can watch this video on the mobile device, Wow!!!” And on it goes…

 

In many cases, I have found that organizations have only developed a mobile strategy from initial launch of the app through the rollout phase. However, ongoing engagement and user adoption is a key ingredient for driving long term success for a mobile learning initiative. In other words, think beyond incorporating mLearning, a core success formula is thinking about the user experience and ways to engage users in the App's value proposition for them.

 

Much like any other learning or performance support system, which users are accustomed to using on a desktop computer, it's critical to have a plan for driving interest, excitement, and value for mobile learning well beyond the launch phase.

What does learning look like? A look at physical and digital spaces

What does learning look like? A look at physical and digital spaces | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

I would like you to concentrate on the first image that comes to mind. Ready? Here is the question: What does learning look like?

Did you picture a classroom? Was there a teacher? What were students doing? Were they working quietly and individually? Or were they noisily collaborating? Were they sitting passively and listening? Or were they actively constructing something?

 

When I pose this question to groups of educators, I’m struck by the diversity of learning visions. For some, there is no teacher with the students, and the students are learning entirely on their own. For others, there is not even a classroom and students are helping students. In a world of ubiquitous mobile devices, where we can connect with information and people anywhere and any time, limiting student learning to a traditional classroom environment seems increasingly shortsighted.

Now is the time for state policymakers to embrace new models of learning

Now is the time for state policymakers to embrace new models of learning | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

Whether editing wikis, turning in homework for a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), or learning Arabic by chatting with their language partner from Marrakesh, students know that what happens in the four walls of their classroom is only one part of their academic life.

State education policy should enhance the connected life of the student, not restrict it. When students walk into the classroom, antiquated policy restrictions on time and place should not hamper their ability to receive the best instruction and content that the 21st century can offer. While many students now experience the benefits of digital learning, countless others are still left behind.

 

State and local governments are emerging as the new battlegrounds for innovative models of learning. From cities, such as Washington, D.C. trying to ban services like Uber, to state legislators voting to ban next-generation vehicles like Tesla, new innovations are confronting barriers created by policy and regulation.

 

Policy can protect the status quo and further entrench old models, or it can help accelerate reforms and scale innovation. State policy shapes the regulatory environment in which online providers operate, how schools can award credit, and how funding decisions are made. It can reinforce print resources, or it can free up funds to flow to digital content. It can limit new models of learning – like online, blended or competency-based education through geographic or enrollment caps, or by restricting the use of funds to purchase digital content; or it can support them by building a strong, sustainable and accountable framework.

 

Today’s policymakers and education leaders have the opportunity to usher in the next generation of education in America. The Internet and new technologies can be a catalyst for rethinking the way we organize learning, provide instruction, and meet the needs of students, teachers and parents. Digital learning can:

[PDF] Pew Research: Digital life in 2025 | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

 

The world is moving rapidly towards ubiquitous connectivity that will further change how and where people associate, gather and share information, and consume media. A canvassing of 2,558 experts and technology builders about where we will stand by the year 2025 finds striking patternsin their predictions.
The invited respondents were identified in previous research about the future of the Internet, from those identified by the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project, and solicited through major technology- oriented listservs. They registered their answers online between November 25, 2013 and January 13, 2014. In their responses, these experts foresee an ambient information environment where accessing the Internet will be effortless and most people will tap into it so easily it will flow through their lives “like electricity.” They predict mobile, wearable, and embedded computing will be tied together in the Internet of Things, allowing people and their surroundings to tap into artificial intelligence-enhanced cloud-based informat ion storage and sharing.
As Dan Lynch, founder of Interop and former director of computing facilities at SRI International, wrote, “The most useful impact is the ability to connect people. From that, everything flows.”To a notable extent, the experts agree on the technology change that lies ahead, even as they disagree about its ramifications. Most believe there will be:

 

A global, immersive, invisible, ambient networked computing environment built through the continued proliferation of smart sensors, cameras, software, databases, and massive data centers in a worlds panning information fabric known as the Internet of Things.“Augmented reality” enhancements to the real-world input that people perceive through the use of portable/wearable/implantable technologies.Disruption of business models established in the 20th century (most notably impacting finance, entertainment, publishers of all sorts, and education).Tagging, databasing, and intelligent analytical mapping of the physical and social realms.
These experts expect existing positive and negative trends to extend and expand in the next decade, revolutionizing most human interaction, especially affecting health, education, work, politics, economics, and entertainment. Most say they believe the results of that  connectivity will be primarily positive. However, when asked todescribe the good and bad aspects of the future theyforesee, many of the experts can also clearly identify areas of concern, some of them extremely threatening.
Heightened concerns over interpersonal ethics, surveillance, terror, and crime, may lead societies to question how best to establish security and trust while retaining civil liberties.
