Estoy diciendo que es inconcebible que la escuela como lo conocíamos hasta ahora vaya a continuar. Inconcebible.
Los niños y niñas, los estudiantes de las universidades … no van a sentarse en silencio en la escuela y escuchar a un profesor que les dará conocimiento predigerido. Creo que van a rebelarse “. -…y si ellos no se atreven, deberemos hacerlo la sociedad, basta de engaños!.
Pero quizás hay esperanza en el aprendizaje conl cultivo natural informal fuera de la academia pura por el surgimiento de innumerables tendencias de aprendizaje hacinamiento el paisaje del siglo 21o un aprendizaje-tendencias que hacen de los libros de texto un robot para programar, de los docentes, unos seguidores del “amo”, de las familias, ejemplos claros de “miedo escénico”…de los gobernantes…personajes que no tienen sentido en la actualidad…
A leader is nothing to do with rank. Leadership is a choice. Anyone who puts their self interest aside to protect the people next to them and improve things around them is a leader. It is therefore important to note that not all people in authority are leaders. Some are there entirely to look out for no one else but themselves. This is not leadership.
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.
Personalized learning is something that educators of all kinds are striving for. A teacher who can make learning real, relevant, and appropriate for each student in their class is one who can see amazing successes and empowered students.
Whether this is your first year teaching and you’re right out of school or you’ve been teaching for 30 years, the students sitting in your classroom are facing a different type of classroom than you had as a student.
" Technology can make life a lot easier in the classroom. In the past criticism was often aimed at new technology coming into the classroom, recent advances in tech have made drastic changes to the learning environment.
This has actually been the case for numerous generations. When televisions were introduced to schools and kindergartens, many people were outraged at the invasion of technology into the educational process but of course, television became an integral part of the learning process. It is therefore fair to say that when used properly, tablets such as the iPad can be used effectively in the classroom."
"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."
“People are almost in this Matrix-like existence,” says education thought-leader Steve Hargadon. “They don’t question schooling. How do you tell a story that opens the door to rethinking what people have believed for decades? So much in their lives depends on that story being what they think it is. How do you tell a new story that involves people reclaiming their destinies, children not being defective, and learning not being owned by one organization?”
