Student Voice and the Future of Education | LEARNing To LEARN | ICT | eSkills | PracTICE

Student Voice and the Future of Education | LEARNing To LEARN | ICT | eSkills | PracTICE | Una visió particular del món universitari | Scoop.it
Student voice matters in education today. Listening to those voices and, even more, entrusting students with decisions about the nature of their learning communities, has tremendous benefits. I am not just referring to future benefits in terms of test score results and measurable academic gains. I am also looking at the benefits of creating more equitable and humane learning communities for today. We see this happening in promising ways, but what if we saw it even more? What if we found ways to persistently engage students in tackling some of education’s greatest challenges and pursuing some of its greatest opportunities? What if the students had more room to imagine the possibilities and to pursue them?

Shaona Williams's curator insight, December 8, 2015 1:22 AM

Despite the fact that the purpose of education is theoretically for the betterment of the students, they are often absent at the conversations about education that affect them the most. This year, the nonprofit Student Voice aimed to change that with the first ever student-led education summit -  “The State and Future of Student Rights.”. 

The students and other education stakeholders at the summit gathered to discuss the rights they believe all students deserve and how to integrate these rights in schools across the country.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | EDUcation CHANGE | Teaching by Topic | Una visió particular del món universitari | Scoop.it

For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.

.

Pasi Silander, the city’s development manager, explained: “What we need now is a different kind of education to prepare people for working life.

.

“Young people use quite advanced computers. In the past the banks had lots of  bank clerks totting up figures but now that has totally changed.

.

“We therefore have to make the changes in education that are necessary for industry and modern society.”

.

Subject-specific lessons – an hour of history in the morning, an hour of geography in the afternoon – are already being phased out for 16-year-olds in the city’s upper schools. They are being replaced by what the Finns call “phenomenon” teaching – or teaching by topic. For instance, a teenager studying a vocational course might take “cafeteria services” lessons, which would include elements of maths, languages (to help serve foreign customers), writing skills and communication skills.

.

More academic pupils would be taught cross-subject topics such as the European Union - which would merge elements of economics, history (of the countries involved), languages and geography.

María Florencia Perrone's curator insight, April 8, 2015 4:00 PM

The world around us is not labelled or divided in categories, then why is academic content? Can we not relate topics and elaborate meaning on the basis of relationships and intertwined data? 

Dr. Helen Teague's curator insight, April 13, 2015 9:11 PM

I wonder if this would work in the U.S.? Also, in Finland, students do not take standardized tests until the end of high school (Zhao, 2012, p. 111), so thankfully, perhaps the drill and kill process is diminished.

Jordi Villà i Freixa's insight:

MOOC are another nice tool for the learning process. They are useful in the sense they expand our view of the process of transferring knowledge. They are not a threat, but a complementary opportunity to learning. Their use/abuse is what will determine its utility, as occurs with mobile devices or e-books.

An extremely nearsighted view over the impacts of MOOCS.MOOCS are NOT mutually exclusive with personal contacts, they are complementary.
