TVET – The new stepbrother to higher education? - University World News

TVET should neither be construed nor perceived as a competitor to any of the subsectors of the education system – least of all higher education. Instead, it should be conceived within the entire education sector – and beyond. Indeed, the African Development Bank supports the “development of engineering, research, and science and technology with universities and regional vocational training institutions at the centre”, creating a more harmonious and robust configuration within the subsector.

Adoption and impact of OER in the Global South

What do we mean by openness? How does openness actually materialise? Is more open always best? How is openness enacted? These fundamental questions have often been ignored, or worse, declared resolved by universal solutions.

Unesco – 2017/8 GEM Report

Unesco – 2017/8 GEM Report | Educación Abierta | Scoop.it
2017/8 @GEMReport asks #WhosAccountable for reaching our global education goal? It calls on us to stop the blame game for education’s problems: we ALL play a part in ensuring we have access to a quality education, from students and teachers, right up to the United Nations. While responsibilities are shared, accountability for education starts first and foremost with governments. They must make sure not to blame people for education problems if they are outside of their control. Blaming teachers for bad learning outcomes can push them into a corner and have negative impact on learning, including marginalizing the weakest students.

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why | Educación Abierta | Scoop.it
Unstructured learning is an authentic real-world way of learning. That’s because the real world itself doesn’t have neat compartments or set disciplines for success. It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, December 26, 2017 8:36 AM

“El aprendizaje no estructurado ocurre cuando dejamos que los estudiantes jueguen sin una guía para que puedan sacar conclusiones por sí mismos. Sin embargo, todavía este tipo de aprendizaje requiere del apoyo del maestro, particularmente en las primeras etapas del proceso. Esto sucede en forma de diseño de escenarios, desarrollo de plantillas, formulación de preguntas orientadoras, etc. Al final, sin embargo, todos estos métodos están diseñados para apoyar y guiar a los estudiantes mientras caminan felices a través de lo desconocido”. (Global Digital Citizen Foundation, 2017)

Gust MEES's curator insight, January 4, 8:57 AM
Unstructured learning is an authentic real-world way of learning. That’s because the real world itself doesn’t have neat compartments or set disciplines for success. It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.

 

It’s time to play and to let go of rigid teaching in favour of unstructured learning. For this to happen, teachers have to foster trust in their students. They have to be willing to take a step back and put a little slack on the reins of traditional pedagogy. In short, we need to let things get a little messy. Ease into it—it’s a bold step and it will transform everything.

Education and accelerated change: The imperative for design learning

"As we enter a period marked by the greatest velocity of change in human history, it is helpful to consider broader context. Past paradigm shifts took place about once every 100 years, and since human lifespans then were shorter, there was more time to absorb and adapt to this change. We are entering a period of extended human longevity which, combined with accelerated technological change, requires constant adaptation and re-skilling."
