4 ways universities are driving innovation

4 ways universities are driving innovation | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
As educators, we have a singular responsibility to prepare all students for a rapidly changing job market, and to educate them to be architects of the world in which we live. In today’s economy, when the future of work is changing faster than our old models of education can accommodate, this is no easy task.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, January 26, 6:18 AM

"A medida que adoptamos esta economía impulsada por la tecnología, las universidades también deben cambiar a un ritmo desconocido para la educación superior. Si bien conservamos nuestra misión central de educar a la próxima generación y cultivar nuevas formas de conocimiento, las universidades también deben abrazar el rol en constante expansión de impulsar la innovación y catalizar el desarrollo económico. Nuestras instituciones deben enfrentar los desafíos de la revolución digital y jugar un papel cada vez más importante en nuestros ecosistemas y economías de innovación en cuatro formas clave: 1. Fomentando el emprendimiento, 2. Fomentando la colaboración con el sector privado, 3. Promoviendo la diversidad y la inclusión, 4. Explorando el vínculo de la tecnología y la sociedad."(World Economic Forum Annual Meeting, 2018)

7 Simple Ways You Can Help Students Pay Attention In A Traditional Classroom - TeachThought

7 Simple Ways You Can Help Students Pay Attention In A Traditional Classroom - TeachThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
These are the hallmarks of a classroom and curriculum in need of some significant rethinking rather than a few “takeaways” to help students “stare longer at work they don’t care about.”

That said, for others, the challenge may indeed by one of pure student engagement. You may work in a very traditional classroom, or have brief “spurts” of direct instruction, PowrPoints, note-taking, and so on, that can benefit from improved student attention and engagement. If that’s the case, below are 7 simple ways any teacher can implement at any time to, to some degree or another, help students pay closer attention.

Provided in the following infographic from Reading Horizons are some strategies for increasing student engagement.

Using Flippity for Makerspace Challenges

Using Flippity for Makerspace Challenges | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
"Although it’s great to allow students to use their imaginations, they will generally feel overwhelmed if you give them infinite choices. For example, if you say, “Build something out of Legos,” many students will either spend most of their time figuring out what to build or attempt to build something they have already done in the past. So, a couple of years ago I thought I would randomize some Makerspace Building Challenges for my students by using a tool called Flippity. Instead of building “something,” they might be urged to build an amusement park ride or a shelter for a natural disaster, for example. You can find my post on using the tool here."

Most instructional designers have four categories of responsibilities:

 

1. Design instructional materials and courses, particularly for digital delivery

 

2. Manage the efforts of faculty, administration, IT, other instructional designers, and others to achieve better student learning

 

3. Train faculty to leverage technology and implement pedagogy effectively

 

4. Support faculty when they run into technical or instructional challenges

Making animated movies is one of my favorite video creation projects for elementary school students. Students love hearing their voices bringing to life an animated character on the screen. You can have students create animations to tell stories from their own lives or to animate short stories that they have written in your classroom.

Stephen's Web ~ Wherefore Art Thou MOOC?: Defining Massive Open Online Courses ~ Stephen Downes

Stephen's Web ~ Wherefore Art Thou MOOC?: Defining Massive Open Online Courses ~ Stephen Downes | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
I don't think this paper really succeeded in its stated objective of defining massive open online courses. What we do get is a sense that there are many interpretations of the form, and that if you sample mostly the xMOOC form, you'll find that xMOOC properties (like instructor-centeredness) predominate. It's interesting for me to observe that as the research moves from primary sources and into secondary sources (and tertiary sources, and more) that the researchers' understanding changes. Now instead of having direct experience they are reporting on what the research says, and with no real constraints on what can be said in research, assertions are replicated and become fact.

Do you know that passive teaching methods lead to a concept retention rate of less than 30 percent? On the other hand, participatory techniques generate retention rates of up to 90 percent. Where our traditional education system fails is that we remain largely focussed on outworn practices that keep student engagement passive, and retention at the bare minimum.
