Connectivism: How to Better Understand Learning in the Digital Age

Connectivism: How to Better Understand Learning in the Digital Age | AJB | Scoop.it
The three broad learning theories most often utilized in the creation of instructional environments are Behaviorism, Cognitivism, and Constructivism. These theories, however, were developed in a time when learning was not impacted through technology. In other words, they do not address learning that occurs outside of people, that is stored and manipulated by technology. Nowadays…

What truly drives change in Education?

What truly drives change in Education? | AJB | Scoop.it
Assessment is probably the strongest driver of education and the most significant obstacle to change. While high stakes testing focuses on low order skills, an emphasis on recall of knowledge and learned strategies for responding to predominantly content based questions progress will be stifled. Open a dialogue with teachers about the need to teach dispositions and it will not be long before someone says “That’s all very good, but I need to get my students ready for the test”.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, November 13, 2017 12:41 AM

Interesting and insightful article.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, November 13, 2017 4:59 PM
One thing that is missed is the role of teachers. I agree that we need goals, parental engagement, and developing skills (or as John Dewey called them habits). The article points a finger at teachers as if the only way to teach creatively is to hold teachers externally accountable. The truth is, when we treat teachers that way, we deny them their creative practices to engage in the change.

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers

Please! No more Icebreakers: 5 Ways to Get a Group Connected Without Icebreakers | AJB | Scoop.it

"I want to affirm that getting people connected at the beginning of a meeting is essential for creating an openness and willingness to challenge. Peter Block has influenced my thinking on this issue. He always says, “Connection before Content.” If a group is going to concentrate on a difficult issue, they need to learn who others are, the skills they bring, the experience they represent, and the values they hold. Stasser, who studies group performance, notes, “Group performance increases when everyone in a group is aware of each other member’s expertise.” But unfortunately, icebreakers, like those I’ve listed above, don’t accomplish that that goal.

"Happily there are alternatives to icebreakers that effectively build connections between members of a group. I will suggest five that I use, but first I want to share my rules of thumb for designing an activity that creates connection, because the rules of thumb are much more important than the specific activity you choose."

 

Jim Lerman's insight: Very informative article

I am not a big fan of icebreakers. The article suggests to "connect" in a group, form community, activities have to be well-thought out. What is the gathering about? What does the group want to accomplish?
Paulette Dotson's curator insight, July 18, 2017 2:29 PM
You must remember as a younger person those awful icebreakers at camp, school etc.  There are other options to help build connections in groups.

How Making Thinking Visible Helps Teachers and Students - November Learning

How Making Thinking Visible Helps Teachers and Students - November Learning | AJB | Scoop.it
Article Produced in Partnership with Cisco Education . One category of digital tools, making thinking visible, can give students a higher level of confidence to ask questions when they need help, or share their opinions and ideas with the rest of the class — leading to more thoughtful discussions. These same tools inform educators about how to plan for much more meaningful lessons. In the 1980s coming of age movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, one of the funniest scenes I remember (perhaps because I was a social studies teacher at the time) is the high school economics class with Ben [...]

Asking students in depth questions can help with a higher level of thinking. This can relate to a administrator with staff. If discussing a issues asking them in depth questions or making them dig deeper can create a higher level of thinking.

The Complete Beginner's Guide To Big Data In 2017 | #ICT

The Complete Beginner's Guide To Big Data In 2017 | #ICT | AJB | Scoop.it
Big Data is a term that has been around for some time now but there is still confusion about what it actually is. The concept is continuing to evolve and to be reconsidered, as it remains the driving force behind many ongoing waves of digital transformation, including artificial intelligence, data science and the Internet of Things (IoT).

With that in mind I thought it was time to write a beginner’s guide to what Big Data means in 2017. In a similar way to my beginner’s guides to Blockchain and FinTech, this will be jargon-free and aims to explain the core concepts and ideas to anyone regardless of background knowledge.

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing

Noam Chomsky on the Dangers of Standardized Testing | AJB | Scoop.it

"The assessment itself is completely artificial. It’s not ranking teachers in accordance with their ability to help develop children who will reach their potential, explore their creative interests. Those things you’re not testing.. it's a rank that’s mostly meaningless. And the very ranking itself is harmful.

A Method for Deep Reading | AJB | Scoop.it
Many students struggle with college-level reading and writing assignments. Part of it is simply not knowing how to get the essentials from a text. I have been experimenting with a simple method I call GSSW: Gather, Sort, Shrink, and Wrap.

The goal of using this method is that students learn to write an essay, based on the readings, that is exemplary of organized, clear, accurate, and critical thinking.

Why teachers need Formative Assessment too

Why teachers need Formative Assessment too | AJB | Scoop.it

When you saw the image above, it may have surprised you in some way.

If you’re a teacher, you may have instantly wondered if you would, should, or could do it, and I bet if you’re an administrator you probably wished your staff already did.

Reactions I’ve had from it so far include ‘how brave’ to ‘how crazy’ to ‘that’s inspired’ to ‘what a brown nose’. But the hyperbolic reactions don’t surprise me, because being observed, no matter what anyone says or desires to be true, still remains a teacher’s most hated part of teaching, and having someone actively seek it out is …..well, just hyperbolically irregular.

For a long time I preferred to be left alone in my classroom. Here’s why:

I was confident I was doing a good job.I was confident that I could self-identify issues if or when they arose.Having someone in the room made me a little nervous, and I felt slightly unnatural as I went about my craft.I thought what I was doing in the room could be judged out of context.
