Emerging technologies supporting Personalized Learning

Emerging technologies supporting Personalized Learning | Ed Tech Scoops | Scoop.it

The hottest trend in education is personalized learning, where studies are individualized according to interest and competency, learning happens not only in the classroom but beyond the confines of the school walls and bell schedule, and students take ownership of their courses of study.

Teachers have long been aware that no two children learn the same way, have the same interests, or even demonstrate the same needs when it comes to instruction. For many teachers, the only way to address the variety of needs in the classroom and deliver personalized instruction is with technology.

For e-learning designers who face the challenge of creating quality modules that facilitate information retention and transfer it’s important to know how the brain works when it comes to attention – this being the first step in any learning process.

Building A Tinkering Mindset In Young Students Through Making | MindShift | KQED News

Building A Tinkering Mindset In Young Students Through Making | MindShift | KQED News | Ed Tech Scoops | Scoop.it

"The most important thing you can do to set up your tinkering space for primary students has nothing to do with the space. Of course you’ll need space for your students to work in, but the physical space for tinkering matters much less than the mental space that you create for young makers.

To be effective tinkerers, students need to achieve a state of mind in which they are primed to play and make joyful discoveries.

Young kids who are playing don’t worry about making mistakes. They’re just playing, and the idea that they could make a mistake—that there’s a wrong way to play—doesn’t enter into their consciousness. It’s this freedom that enables the creation of elaborate pretend games and castles built from playground bits. Replicating a sense of play in the classroom is vital to creating a tinkering mindset for children."

Data-Driven Learning, not instruction, is the future of education

Data-Driven Learning, not instruction, is the future of education | Ed Tech Scoops | Scoop.it

Data-driven instruction may be the popular catchphrase in education, but in a recent edWebinar, the speakers advocated for data-driven learning. The student, they said, should be at the center of all educational efforts, especially when the goal is to improve outcomes. “Using Student Learning Data to Foster a Growth Culture,” featuring Amy Trees Dodson, M.Ed., director of instruction, Cisco (TX) Independent School District (CISD); David Woods, director of curriculum and reporting, DreamBox Learning; and Robyn Sturgeon, professional learning consultant, NWEA, focused not just on the idea of collecting data, but on collecting only the data that is actionable. Instead of teaching to the middle, they said, educators and students can use data to attack learning.

Richard Platt's curator insight, August 5, 6:52 AM

Recently, the world of virtual reality was shaken up when the popular Merge Cube by Merge VR dropped in price from $15 to just a dollar at many Walmart stores. When using specific apps, these cubes showcase different experiences as you rotate the block around with your hands. If you haven’t held a Merge Cube yet, they're made of a soft rubber material that’s comparable to a stiffer stress ball. (If you want to test out the apps first, you can print out a temporary paper cube.)  The Merge Cubes work with most mobile phones and tablets, and the apps are found in the Google Play and App Store. There’s also an optional VR headset users can wear for hands-free play, which makes the experience more immersive. The most exciting aspect of the Merge Cube is the opportunity for students to become a Merge Cube Developer and create their own applications.  While educators are flocking to scoop up hot deals at their local store, many are now wondering how to use them in the classroom. I’ve listed some of my favorite educational apps to load on your devices, but I anticipate the list will continue to expand as more developers jump into the Merge Cube Madness.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) through Virtual Reality: Is this the future of education? | Ed Tech Scoops | Scoop.it

Increasingly, education isn’t all about maths, sciences, and languages. In fact, as forward-thinking educators know, the future of work will demand flexible, culturally fluent, emotionally intelligent workers. That trend is already being felt: for the last 20 years or so, the jobs that have grown the most, whether we consider wages or employment prospects, demand pretty advanced interpersonal skills to complement other talents.

4 ways artificial intelligence will shape the future of learning technology

4 ways artificial intelligence will shape the future of learning technology | Ed Tech Scoops | Scoop.it

In the future, I believe that institutions at the forefront of online education will be recognized via several capabilities which will have digitally transformed today’s EdTech market. They will include a powerful combination of omni-channel learning pathways, cognitive courseware, virtual counselors and AI-enabled course development and grading.

These innovations, underpinned by artificial intelligence (AI), will help to provide students the ultimate choice in their courseware – including up-to-the-minute courses on high-interest/high-growth subject matter – as well as highly-innovative digital services that support them every step of the way to help maximize their success and personal objectives.

10 Ways to Improve Metacognition in Students

10 Ways to Improve Metacognition in Students | Ed Tech Scoops | Scoop.it

Meta cognition gives direction to a student’s thinking process as a learner, eliminating doubts and confusions in their own skills. They get a better understanding of all that they learn, instead of just hoarding information for examinations. Metacognition in students help them delve deeper into learning, providing better exposure and applications that extend beyond education, into different areas of life.

Round of AI movements across the American industry.

Richard Platt's curator insight, July 11, 6:39 PM

First was big data, and then came cloud, then the machine learning frenzy. We reached peak machine learning in 2017.

Last year investors pumped in over $15.2B in funding to AI startups across multiple industries. It was a 141% spike in funding from 2016.  Over 1,100 new AI companies have raised their first rounds of funding since 2016. And that’s more than half the historic number of AI startups that have ever raised an equity round. The normalization and mainstreaming of machine learning will make investors picky about the AI companies they fund.
