Deep Learning Through Transformative Pedagogies

Deep Learning Through Transformative Pedagogies | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Education has far out-stretched its humble beginning that only involved reading, writing and understanding the subjects taught. With changing dynamics, students have evolved from information gatherers to learners looking for practical learning that extends beyond examinations and classrooms. Learning today, breaks the barriers of curriculum, seeping into the nuances of the mind and its effect on the overall development of a student. It takes into consideration, the different kinds of learners, their capabilities and interests, skills and will, to make learning more effective, leading to the emergence of deep learning.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Deep Learning -- Dive in, all the fun is in the deep end. Delighted to find so much of what I believe in captured in a single infographic. 

 

Reminds me of a quotation from the Milken Family Foundation that has guided me for the past 23 years:  The Future Belongs to the Educated.

Harold Jarche: An Infographic Overview of Personal Knowledge Mastery

Harold Jarche: An Infographic Overview of Personal Knowledge Mastery | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

A key part of the Seek > Sense > Share framework for PKM is to find new ways to explain things, or add value to existing information.

Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Harold Jarche is a thinker.  His ideas help clarify how to swim in the sea of digital information that online teachers and learners must navigate.  Intended for a business audience, Jarche's PKM approach also applies to anyone interested in the flow of information and how to transform that information into action.

A visual overview of Harold Jarche's model for PKM

Florence Gilzene-Cheese's curator insight, August 22, 2015 12:11 PM

The idea from the Seek, Sense, Share PKM network that speaks to the development of a framework for professional development. PKM is driven by metacognition and allows the individual to seek to fill identified knowledge gaps and make sense of the information that is available and further share the knowledge that is gained. This info-graphic supports the framework and identifies the flow among the ideas in the Seek, Sense, Share process of PKM.

7-12 Teachers: Be the First to Test NLP’s checkology™ Virtual Classroom | The News Literacy Project

7-12 Teachers: Be the First to Test NLP’s checkology™ Virtual Classroom | The News Literacy Project | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
For a limited time, NLP is offering premium-level access to this exciting new e-learning environment for free to teachers who qualify for one of our mini-grants.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Needed: Middle and High School teachers interested in information fluency, critical thinking and digital citizenship.

 

"NLP is currently accepting applications from 7th-12th grade teachers to pilot the virtual classroom at no cost. The pilot begins on September 12 and runs through the end of the 2016. The e-learning assets are aligned with Common Core State Standards and NLP provides comprehensive teacher training and support. The unit requires at least 12-15 student hours online in a 1:1 setting, such as a computer lab or laptop classroom. Teachers without 1:1 capability are free to register for basic (one-to-many) access."

Case Study: 21CIF Scoop.it Magazine | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
Teaching Information Fluency describes the skills and dispositions of information fluency adept searchers. Readers will receive in-depth information on what it takes to locate, evaluate, and ethically use digital information. The book realistically examines the abilities of Internet searchers today in terms of their efficiency and effectiveness in finding online information, evaluating it and using it ethically. Since the majority of people develop these skills on their own, rather than being taught, the strategies they invent may suffice for simple searches, but for more complex tasks, such as those required by academic and professional work, the average person’s performance is adequate only about 50% of the time. The book is laid out in five parts: an introduction to the problem and how search engine improvements are not sufficient to be of real help, speculative searching, investigative searching, ethical use and applications of information fluency. The intent of the book is to provide readers ways to improve their performance as consumers of digital information and to help teachers devise useful ways to integrate information fluency instruction into their teaching, since deliberate instruction is needed to develop fluency. Since it is unlikely that dedicated class time will be available for such instruction, the approach taken embeds information fluency activities into classroom instruction in language arts, history and science. Numerous model lessons and resources are woven into the fabric of the text, including think-alouds, individual and group search challenges, discussions, assessments and curation, all targeted to Common Core State Standards as well as information fluency competencies.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Understanding curation by creating and using a Scoop.it magazine is one of the projects in EDUC 760: E-Learning for Educators.  Constructing knowledge by skillfully tagging, annotating, and sharing information is a way to filter and use the ocean of information we live and teach with. 8-)
