En una sociedad apasionante...la Educación de siempre, ha dejado de interesar! | Digital Learning, Technology & Strenghts in Education | Scoop.it

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…

Amy Melendez's insight:

From the post:

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.

Sonja Hartemink e-learning Spanish's curator insight, April 6, 9:01 AM

I'm in my office tapping away on my computer, and can hear sounds coming from the other side of the door: clinks from my husband washing dinner dishes, and chirps from my son Leo's iPad as he happily entertains himself.

 

"Happily entertains himself" is not a phrase I use casually. While Leo is absolutely one of the happiest kids you'll ever meet, he is also autistic, and does best with 24/7 supervision and support. So for him to independently busy himself with that iPad is ... kind of a big deal. iPads are kind of a big deal for many kids with special needs.

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Digital Learning, Technology & Strenghts in Education | Scoop.it
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.

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought

Creating An iPad Workflow For Teachers, Students, And Parents - TeachThought | Digital Learning, Technology & Strenghts in Education | Scoop.it

"Using tablets in the classroom–whether iPads, Androids, or surging Windows devices–is largely a matter of workflow.

 

If you can forgive a mixed metaphor, the traditional classroom sees the teacher as the both the director and the bottleneck of all productivity. They create assignments, assess proficiency, respond to assessment data, and refine planned instruction in light of constantly changing circumstances.

 

This is challenging in any context, but in 1:1 and mobile learning environments, it’s even more complex. With tablets, every student has both an information portal and a digital printing press. This means they can reach both communities and potential collaborators.

 

The above graphic from @ipadwells addresses this issue with a helpful graphic that visualizes a workflow, while offering up representative apps for each step of the process."

How To Overcome The iPad Learning Curve - Teachers With Apps | Digital Learning, Technology & Strenghts in Education | Scoop.it

" 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."

“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?”

"The Future of Employment study makes clear that what matters most today is what you can do with what you know, rather than how much you know."

We need to create schools that coach students for skill and will, in addition to teaching content. If we don't make this transition quickly, a growing number of our youth will be unemployable at the same time that employers complain that they cannot find new hires who have the skills they need. - Dr. Tony Wagner
