Listening and speaking are the most powerful facilitators of learning which takes place through thought and reflection on the process. The learning takes place in the heart, brain and soul. Great to see tools that facilitate this.

Learning Analytics: Threats and opportunities

Learning Analytics: Threats and opportunities | UVic ePortfolio Users | Scoop.it

As institutional managers, administrators and researchers are well aware, any practice involving data collection and reuse has inherent legal and ethical implications. Most institutions have clear guidelines and policies in place governing the collection and use of research data; however it is less common for institutions to have legal and ethical guidelines on the use of data gathered from internal systems (Prinsloo & Slade, 2013). As is often the case, the development of legal frameworks has not kept pace with the development of new technologies.

Tim Hopper's insight:

UVic needs these guidelines so that we can learn how to use analytics to benefit student learning.

Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech?

Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech? | UVic ePortfolio Users | Scoop.it

By Katrina Schwartz |

 

With a new generation of teachers coming into the work force, there’s a discrepancy between what principals expect of teachers-in-training and what they’re actually learning in school.

A new Project Tomorrow report surveying principals concluded that they want to hire new teachers with creative ideas about how technology can be leveraged to create authentic and differentiated learning experiences. But student-teachers report that their tech training focuses only on simple management tools. At the same time, the report concludes that those who have the biggest influence on new teachers — veteran educators —  don’t always embrace new ways of using technology to engage students.


Via Dennis T OConnor
Tim Hopper's insight:

We need reflect on how ed tech shifts our pedagogical practices. Minimum is individualized learning.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, December 6, 2014 8:29 PM

Aspiring teachers may need to look beyond the basic training received in a school of education.  A new teacher who knows how to learn with technology should be able to leverage that understanding into teaching skills... especially if they are self-directed learners. 

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 18, 2014 7:17 AM

I think most future teachers are ill-equipped to use technology effectively primarily because they don't have the resources nor the opportunity to learn how to use technology--"innovative" or otherwise--in their own learning.


"Principals want new teachers to know how to use technology to create authentic learning experiences for students (75 percent) and how to leverage technology to differentiate instruction (68 percent) before they apply for a position at their school." It doesn't help that many principals might think they know what these terms and phrases mean but they might know really know the implications for making sure teachers have the best possible skills and the best possible resources.

Tim Hopper's insight:

Like the insights on the need to create knowledge in collectives.  As Boule (2011) comments referring to author of Wikinomics, Macrowikinomics, and Grown Up Digital, "Tapscott said, “All these kids that have grown up collaborating and thinking differently walk into a university and they’re asked to sit there and passively listen to someone talking.” He goes on to talk about the new research that is beginning to show that not only do students learn different and multitask, but the very fact that they are multitasking and learning different is changing the way their brains function and grow."

Curating, ePortfolio and blogs part of the shift in education I think.

Dorothy Retha Cook's curator insight, December 11, 2015 5:10 AM

There is a difference in learning and sharing, we can share some things we are not able to learn. As slaves couldn't read words but they taught the ways of their lives required to be lived instead! As grandma would say having all the book sense with no good common sense don't amount to nothing. Knowing how go read a book about how to change a light bulb but having no good common sense on how to perform it makes you a person with plenty of book sense sitting on the dark at night because you don't have the good common sense on how to do what the book said. Grandma and them had a way about telling the truth as it was said if you don't want to know the truth Grandma and them style don't ask them! Learning comes in different ways not all work the same! Don't judge another because they learn differently but always remember 

what doesn't work for you just might work fine for another!

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics | UVic ePortfolio Users | Scoop.it
Using data to drive learning outcomes isn’t a new concept, really. For as long as teachers have been giving students assessments, the assessments and results have been used by both students and teachers (even if only loosely) to determine how to move forward. What needs to be reviewed more? What was covered/studied well? Learning analytics takes this concept and kicks it up a notch. Well, more like a thousand notches, especially if you’re considering things like adaptive computer based testing that changes as students use it.

The idea of continuous and real time feedback loops to help students learn sounds exciting if harnessed in the right way by instructors.
