Why schools should teach the Curriculum of the Future, not the past

Why schools should teach the Curriculum of the Future, not the past | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Robots, Artificial Intelligence, Automation – no longer the stuff of science fiction movies. Overwhelming evidence shows the shift in what the workforce needs is already underway and that it will continue to grow much larger in the future. All around the world, leaders from government and industry debate the future of work and the changes brought by technology and automation. Despite this, the world is not reacting fast enough to update our system of education.

According to analysis of 750 occupations by the McKinsey Global Institute, 51% of job activities are highly susceptible to automation – and that’s through adapting currently demonstrated technology alone. It’s also important to note that these activities span jobs across industries as well as skill and wage levels. This indicates that automation is much less likely to lead to the mass unemployment predicted by alarmists but is almost certainly going to necessitate the redefinition of most occupations and requisite skills.

10 tips for EdTech Entrepreneurs

10 tips for EdTech Entrepreneurs | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

EdTech entrepreneurs all set out with good intentions; to better education. While noble, these intentions are met with many obstacles and failure is easy. Only 14% of teachers use digital curricula weekly. So while the doors of opportunity seem open, the market is saturated with products that never make their way into the classroom. If edtech entrepreneurs are to flourish, they need to address the fears that educators have about technology while pushing innovation. Below are 10 Tips for EdTech Entrepreneurs

What are the Pros and Cons of EdTech in the classroom? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

No matter how much value edtech adds to your classroom, there will always be skeptics hovering close by. On the flip side, if you’ve never been an edtech supporter, it’s likely there are educators in your district advocating for an online math tutorial or digital textbook.

If you’re looking to educate yourself on the widespread edtech debate, we’re breaking down arguments that parents, teachers, students, and policy makers on both sides have contributed to recent conversations about classroom technology.

The largest internet company in 2030? This prediction will probably surprise you | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Online learning taught by robots could be widespread by 2030.

According to Futurist Thomas Frey, in 12 years it’ll be a big deal when students learn from robot teachers over the internet. It’s not just because the technology will be that sophisticated, Frey says, but because the company responsible for it will be the largest of its kind.

I’ve been predicting that by 2030 the largest company on the internet is going to be an education-based company that we haven’t heard of yet,” Frey, the senior futurist at the DaVinci Institute think tank, tells Business Insider.

iEducation: Methods for learning outside the classroom

iEducation: Methods for learning outside the classroom | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

When we were kids, we all probably had a point when we do not want to go to school. Learning inside a four corner room can be boring and tedious, and we knew it even then. But what if learning could follow you to your home, and could be done on your own time and at your own pace. Would it still be effective?

The explosion of the internet was followed by the inception of many applications and web-based technologies. One of the technologies that emerged in the early days of the internet was LMS or Learning Management System, a software technology application that facilitates learning through planning, implementing, tracking and assessing digital learning materials. Many LMS platforms are available in the market today, and vary depending on the nature of business you have, be it commerce or education.

In recent years, eLearning has been heavily compared to traditional education in terms of effectiveness and sustainability. Research on LMS effectiveness, conducted by the National Library of MNIH in 2016, showed that e-learning has the same effectiveness as traditional learning methods. The researchers based their findings on the difference in student’s performance, where scores were almost the same as those of traditional learning environments.

Who will train us for the million net jobs AI will create?

Who will train us for the million net jobs AI will create? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

AI and smaller-scopes levels of automation continue to replace more tasks impinged to human labor before now. It should not feel sudden. It is a result of a deliberate and documented process spearheaded by technology centers like Silicon Valley and their relentless quest to add immense amounts of value, over the course of decades. It seems not everyone got the memo. Millions of people in jobs no human is supposed to be doing today or soon enough watch as their skills turn obsolete. In another predictable warning sign, a recent report by Gartner (see press release) forecasts that AI will continue to wreak havoc at varying rates depending on the industry. Even if by 2025 the net job surplus could reach the millions, doubts remain on the jobs and fields it will benefit, and to whose expense.

No one has figured out succesful, sustainable Microcredentialing | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Since the introduction is degrees, education faces an ongoing battle against its own evidence. For reasons exceeding my understanding and our scope, everyone settled on academic credentials, which by definition attest to what a person did to learn, not the actual outcomes of the learning. As a result, a credential is only valuable as the surrounding social and institutional infrastructure can deem it to be. Only exceptional fields and circumstances value skills over diplomas, with the consequences we’ve all learned to shoulder.

Why we need both Science and Humanities for a Fourth Industrial Revolution education

Why we need both Science and Humanities for a Fourth Industrial Revolution education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The potential automation of many jobs raises some big and tricky questions, but one of these hasn’t received sufficient attention: what is the true purpose of education at a time when machines are getting smarter and smarter?

I’ve spent my career working with some of the brightest engineers in technology and greatest humanitarians at the UN thinking about how we could bring the benefits of innovation to our customers and society worldwide. The latest and most powerful of these is the impending launch of the fifth generation (5G) wireless network, which can handle 1,000 times more data volume than the systems in place today.

As technology evolves, it’s become increasingly clear to me that our education systems are not preparing people for the opportunities that 5G and other Fourth Industrial Revolution breakthroughs will present. Educators, policy-makers, non-profits and the business community need to confront this fact – even if (especially if) this means questioning long-standing practices and trendy assumptions.

Aprender durante toda la vida: Los nuevos procesos “científicos” 

Aprender durante toda la vida: Los nuevos procesos “científicos”  | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La verdad es que mi mente de una persona madura, se está transformando en tan flexible, esponjosa y con tantos reflejos, que hace que mi mente no vaya asociada con mi físico, esa es la verdad….

La capacidad de leer (que para mi no es leer, en todo caso seria META-LEER) hace que construyamos en cada momento conocimientos pero adaptados a implementaciones directas a la realidad, incluso muchas veces nos saltamos lo que esel APRENDIZAJE, eso ya lo damos por hecho, es decir, nuestro cerebro ya no asimila los pasos, sino que genera “una autopista” creativa, de relaciones convergentes y divergentes…” y eso les aseguro que es genial, tienes unos subidones de adrenalina que es imposible explicarlo, hay que vivirlo y disfrutarlo.

Using Mobile to capture Informal Learning

Using Mobile to capture Informal Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Formal learning has a tendency to be just that – formal – and sometimes it fails to speak to the learner in a way they can identify with. The challenge to provide a regular stream of relevant content makes it tempting to tap the well of informal learning.

With informal learning, all of the ‘content’ is tailored by the audience, for the audience. If you rely on a colleague to support you in your job, it’s in your own best interest to make sure that colleague is up to speed. If you see a way for them to improve how they do their job, you’ll communicate it in terms they’re familiar with.

The difference between Mobile Learning and eLearning

The difference between Mobile Learning and eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

You might think mobile learning is just classic eLearning on a smaller screen, but it’s not that simple. To start with, the term ‘eLearning’ can be fuzzy enough on its own, depending on who you’re talking to. To some people, eLearning defines the entire field of computer-based training and they see it as a synonym of online learning.

To other people, when they speak about eLearning, they’re talking specifically about our friend, the SCORM-compliant package that’s uploaded onto a learning management system. It’s not for us to say who’s right and who’s wrong – but for the purposes of this article, we’re going with the second definition.

So, what’s the difference between an eLearning unit and mobile learning content?

4 eLearning trends to be wary of

4 eLearning trends to be wary of | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

One of the challenges of eLearning is that while digital technology is ever changing, what keeps people learning remains as unpredictable and elusive as ever. As a result, there are always new ways to attempt to access learners online and new ways to present information. But these innovative methods are not necessarily as effective as tried-and-true ways of teaching. There are dangers when it comes to employing new technology and trends. You have to take care to use them effectively. Just because someone is employing a fancy new technology doesn’t mean they’re using it well. After all, being in a fancy new car doesn’t make you a good driver. And having the auto-brake feature doesn’t mean you’re completely safe from getting in a car accident. The same principles apply to elearning. Unfortunately, technology doesn’t really make teaching easier – just different. You still need to put reasonable effort into incorporating it into the course the way it should be used. Here are some details on what to look out for with the various types of technology trends:

The presenter generally looks into presenting hard core content based limited examples designed by some elite institutions under controlled conditions. The end result is that the training takes a back step with teachers not feeling satisfied or elated about learning new things.

Teacher workshops are also on the same stage as training. The control conditions set and the workshops conducted do not give teacher an immense satisfaction of achieving the set goals. Teacher training and workshops are either set

Mobile Learning engagement on the go!

Mobile Learning engagement on the go! | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

If you have a mobile learning initiative in place, or you’re looking to implement one, there’s something you should know: If you can’t engage your learners, it’s not going to have the desired impact.

Not to worry, there are quite a few things you can do to generate enough activity to overload your server. The simplest thing you can do is to make your training more fun by creating an overarching game.

 

Competition is a huge driver for engagement. The first step is to decide on the form of your game. The mechanics don’t need to be complicated – you can set a time-period, say three months. Within this three-month period, all users will complete challenges to earn points. The more challenges they complete, the more points they’ll earn and the higher up the leaderboard they go.

 

It’s a simple format that’s worked pretty well for hundreds of years, but before you start, there are a couple of things you should keep in mind:
