The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

Apprendre à apprendre, quelle place pour le numérique ? - Par Michèle Drechsler

Apprendre à apprendre, quelle place pour le numérique ? - Par Michèle Drechsler | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Avec le numérique, ne peut-on pas générer ces  « révolutions minuscules » ou ces « petits moments magiques », qui bousculent les certitudes et qui « boostent » la réflexion des élèves comme le disait si bien Jean Pierre Astolfi, et qui permettent aussi une réflexion des enseignants sur les différentes façons d’apprendre? Ces moments de manipulation via les interfaces numérique et en liaison avec l’apprenant directement concerné, ne sont-ils pas une façon de faire vivre concrètement dans l’action, l’expérience de ce qu’un savoir en construction produit comme surprise et inspiration ? Nous pouvons repenser ici à ce que Louis Legrand appelait une « pédagogie de l’étonnement » et Georges Snyders « la joie à l’école » !

University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting

University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
Around the world, participation rates in tertiary education are on the rise and one of the key challenges facing educators is finding ways to engage these students. We present the results of a project that assesses the impact of an engagement strategy in which a cohort of students entering their first year of university (1) establish and maintain a clear goal of their ideal future career and (2) make use of a web-based digital curation tool to research and present their findings.

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift

Can the Maker Movement Infiltrate Mainstream Classrooms? - Mind/Shift | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it


“Most of the people that I know who got into science and technology benefited from a set of informal experiences before they had much formal training,” said Dale Dougherty, editor of Make Magazine and founder of Maker Faire on KQED’s Forum program. “And I mean, like building rockets in the backyard, tinkering, playing with things. And that created the interest and motivation to pursue science.”

That spirit of play and discovery of knowledge is missing from much of formal education, Dougherty said. Students not only have no experience with making or the tools needed to build things, they’re often at a tactile deficit. “Schools haven’t changed, but the students have,” Dougherty said. “They don’t come with these experiences.”

El "Maker Movement" debe ser un elemento clave en el desarrollo de proyectos multidisciplinares en las universidades. No es posible concebir soluciones innovadoras desde la perspectiva de una sola disciplina. Aún cuando hay avances importantes en algunas universidades, "una gaviota no hace verano".

The Myth of Multiple Intelligences | SmartData Collective

The Myth of Multiple Intelligences | SmartData Collective | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
In 1980, Dr. Gardner said “The potential utility of computers in the process of matching individuals to modes of instruction is substantial.” Though Gardner is likely incorrect regarding individuals’ learning styles, he was notably ahead of his time in predicting the power of eLearning. Today, more and more courses are moving online; not only do universities and community colleges increasingly provide all-online degree programs to busy workers looking to improve, but high schools and lower education levels are moving to the Web. Thus, it is becoming ever-more essential for instructional designers to thoroughly understand where, why, and how students learn.

The changing value of knowledge and openness in education (Cristobal Cobo)

"The notion of openness in education is usually associated just with resources - whether content or technologies - and initiatives in tis field have often focused too narrowly on the mere generation of those resources, paying little attention to the "social life" of materials and relevant cultural practices.

Open Educational Resources (OER) and, most recently, the so-called Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), among other open education initiatives, seem to be reshaping the value of content in Higher Education (HE).

However, it is worth reflecting on the extent to which offering open content may be considered disruptive these days. In this presentation I will argue that we need to go beyond the content-centered focus of OER and look at the contexts of learning, both inside and outside of formal education. That means to better articulate at least three key dimensions: content, containers (platforms,technologies), and context."

The Feynman Technique  for learning | #LEARNing2LEARN | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it
The Feynman Technique is perfect for learning a new idea, understanding an existing idea better, remembering an idea, or studying for a test. The Feynman Technique is a mental model that was coined by Nobel-prize winning physicist Richard Feynman. Known as the "Great Explainer," Feynman was revered for his ability to clearly illustrate dense topics…

Andrea Mejia Medina's curator insight, May 5, 2017 10:39 AM
By attempting to explain a concept in simple terms, you’ll quickly see where you have a good understanding of that concept. You’ll also be able to instantly pinpoint your problem areas, because they’ll be the areas where you either get stuck or where you end up resorting to using complex language and terminology. In addition to helping you pinpoint those problem areas in the concept you’re trying to learn, the Feynman Technique gives you a quick, efficient way to shore up those areas using targeted learning. It’s a simple technique, but it’ll help you study much more efficiently once you put into action. How to Use the Feynman Technique: Step 1: Grab a sheet of paper and write the name of the concept at the top. You can use pretty much any concept or idea – even though the technique is named after Feynman, it’s not limited solely to math and science. Step 2: Explain the concept in your own words as if you were teaching it to someone else. Focus on using plain, simple language. Don’t limit your explanation to a simple definition or a broad overview; challenge yourself to work through an example or two as well to ensure you can put the concept into action. Step 3: Review your explanation and identify the areas where you didn’t know something or where you feel your explanation is shaky. Once you’ve pinpointed them, go back to the source material, your notes, or any examples you can find in order to shore up your understanding. Step 4: If there are any areas in your explanation where you’ve used lots of technical terms or complex language, challenge yourself to re-write these sections in simpler terms. Make sure your explanation could be understood by someone without the knowledge base you believe you already have. Step 5: think like a child; while you’re working through the Feynman Technique for any given concept, it can be useful to pretend that you’re explaining that concept to a child. Doing this will boost your own understanding for one simple reason; a kid is probably going ask why? Why does that formula work? How can you know it`ll always work? While older people often become accustomed to taking things at face value, kids are naturally curious. They’re quick to point out their confusion. This is a great mindset to adopt.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

Metacognition, simply put, is the process of thinking about thinking. It is important in every aspect of school and life, since it involves self-reflection on one’s current position, future goals, potential actions and strategies, and results. At its core, it is a basic survival strategy, and has been shown to be present even in rats.

5 Instructional Design tips to enhance Metacognition in eLearning

5 Instructional Design tips to enhance Metacognition in eLearning | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

An empowered learner is a successful learner. Not only do they have the confidence they need to solve problems autonomously, but they are active participants who are motivated and inspired to learn. One of the most effective ways to empower your online learners is to incorporate metacognition into your eLearning strategy. In this article, I’ll share 5 tips on how to enhance metacognition in eLearning.


Metacognition involves not just having knowledge and being able to cognitively process information, but being able to control these mental processes. This typically involves modification, monitoring, and organization of the information in order to apply it in real world settings. Metacognition also focuses on analyzing a challenge or task to determine which problem solving approach would be the most effective.


One of the most significant advantages of using metacognition in eLearning is that it encourages learners to become more independent and empowered. They must identify their strengths and weaknesses, and fine tune their study, organization, problem-solving, and communication skills. In this article, I’ll delve into the categories of metacognition, its best practices, and I’ll share 5 tips that will help you use metacognition in eLearning.
