Continuous learning for collaboration

Continuous learning for collaboration | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Insights lead to innovation, which is not so much about having ideas as it is about connecting and nurturing ideas. When we remove artificial boundaries, we enable innovation. In complex situations, where various people are working on similar problems, it is important to know who has done what. The challenge for distributed teams and organizations is to find ways of understanding what is happening throughout the system and ensuring it is communicated within the network.

The connection between innovation and learning is evident. We can’t be innovative unless we integrate learning into our work. For example, here are some questions that the practice of PKM can address:

[PDF] Ser docente en una sociedad compleja

[PDF] Ser docente en una sociedad compleja | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Vivimos en un momento paradójico para la educación y sobre todo para la educación escolar. Cada vez pedimos más a la educación porque tenemos la intuición de que solo las personas capaces de adaptarse a los cambios y a los nuevos aprendizajes podrán encarar el futuro con ciertas garantías. En una sociedad desigual, multicultural y compleja, la escuela es su reflejo indiscutible y en este contexto la labor docente adquiere unas características dinámicas, de cambio y de necesidad constante de revisión. Por eso, este número de Ruta Maestra toma su título del libro de Francisco Imbernón Ser docente en una sociedad compleja (Graó, 2017) y hace una revisión de la compleja tarea docente “laboriosa, paciente y difícil. Mucho más de lo que la gente cree y muchísimo más de lo que piensan los políticos”, como afirma el propio Imbernón.
 
La docencia no es efectivamente una tarea sencilla. Es una actividad incierta, contextualizada y construida siempre en
respuesta a las particularidades de la vida diaria en las escuelas y las clases (Carlos Marcelo, 2001). En lugar de ser la fuente central de conocimiento, el docente en este siglo tiene que ser un experto que guía, crea curiosidad y aprovecha todas las oportunidades para explorar intersecciones entre disciplinas. Debe ayudar a fomentar habilidades como pensamiento crítico, colaboración en equipo, comunicación por diferentes medios y creatividad.
Siempre con la meta de crear más capacidad de automanejo en sus alumnos, el docente de este siglo fomenta la curiosidad y la capacidad de buscar respuestas. Deja que se frustren sus estudiantes y, así, aprendan a sobrepasar sus frustraciones y mejorar sus colaboraciones por medio de práctica y reflexión.

Real-World Skills that K-12 Education doesn’t teach and 6 online learning platforms that do exactly that

Real-World Skills that K-12 Education doesn’t teach and 6 online learning platforms that do exactly that | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Technology has drastically changed the educational landscape in the past couple of decades, reducing the time required to perform administrative tasks, improving the personalization of educational material, and introducing new ways of engaging with the subject matter.

However, these improvements don’t change the fact that a majority of learners are awarded high school diplomas without learning the basic real-world skills they need to thrive after graduation. Time Magazine notes that students often don’t learn the basics of money management, contingency planning, and other important subjects. In online courses, where students often require more independence and lack of face-to-face instruction, this problem can be compounded.

Today, we’ll be looking at platforms available that can be used to supplement online courses. Regardless of your style of teaching, these options can be used to give educators the opportunity to impart essential real-world skills and truly prepare K-12 online students for a prosperous future.

Lower costs are making more students prefer Online Education

Lower costs are making more students prefer Online Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Not long ago, eLearning was mostly seen as a collection of technologies intended to augment long-distance learning and improve classroom experience; these days, however, online education is increasingly being considered a viable alternative to the traditional path of attending brick-and-mortar colleges.

Flexibility, interaction, and access to digital learning materials are often cited as being the greater advantages of online education, but tuition costs are becoming the most important factors among students who prefer the digital campus to the physical campus. Prior to the global financial crisis of 2008, eLearning was mostly focused on master degrees, extra credit, and certificate programs that appealed to working adults; nowadays, high school graduates prefer studying online basically due to the fact that the costs of college tuition are soaring.

[PDF] Habilidades del siglo 21: Cuando el futuro es hoy

[PDF] Habilidades del siglo 21: Cuando el futuro es hoy | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Cada tiempo tiene sus modas. En treinta años dedicados a la educación me ha tocado ver numerosas. Algunas, con el correr de los años, revelan su fuerza más allá del momento, la que viene dada por la solidez de sus construcciones teóricas, por su encarnación en las políticas educativas o, de modo contundente, por las transformaciones que generan. En estos casos, en general, pasan a integrar la historia del campo y son consideradas referentes a la hora de comprender prácticas educativas o de crearlas. Entre las expresiones de la década que transitamos, las llamadas habilidades del siglo 21 configuran una referencia habitual.
 
¿Cómo saber si se trata de una moda que en algunos años habremos olvidado o de una cuestión clave para pensar la pedagogía contemporánea? No tengo una respuesta a esta pregunta, pero sí agradezco la invitación que recibí por parte de Nilda Palacios y Fundación Santillana para escribir este Documento Básico del XIII Foro Latinoamericano de Educación por el recorrido que me permite compartir con ustedes. Lo que me propongo desarrollar es una búsqueda de sentido, una apertura que nos permita, como docentes, entender el alcance conceptual de lo que expresamos cuando nombramos –o nos nombran– las habilidades del siglo 21.
 
También, un análisis acerca de las posibilidades que se abren cuando nos referimos a este conjunto de habilidades en nuestras prácticas reales, esas que encaramos cada día cuando entramos en el aula y que son complejas. Y, finalmente, una proyección sobre cómo abordar aquellas habilidades que aún no pudimos reconocer o nombrar pero que seguramente emergerán en las próximas décadas, habida cuenta de los modos renovados en que se construye el conocimiento en la contemporaneidad.

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.

El concepto de aprendizaje de la ciudadanía será accesible, ágil y escalable 

El concepto de aprendizaje de la ciudadanía será accesible, ágil y escalable  | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El concepto de aprendizaje de la ciudadanía, que se refiere a la ética de cómo invertimos nuestras identidades ya que viajamos a través del paisaje, de nuestro contexto, solo significa un aspecto del miso por lo tanto, el aprendizaje de las personas está todavía muy dentro de un contexto social, reconociendo el potencial de un individuo para comunidades de puente y ayudar a conectar a otros a comunidades que mejorarán su capacidad de aprendizaje. (Personal and Social learning).

Lo costoso del sistema educativo es su estructura burocrática y todos los beneficios que gozan los de alta jerarquía. Los materiales didácticos, mobiliarios, equipos, herramientas pedagógicas e infraestructura tecnolígicas no le cuesta mucho al estado. Por eso es que enseñar cuesta cada día más. Pero gracias al desarrollo de las TIC, el aprendizaje de la sociedad ya no cuesta tanto. El aprendizaje en red es mucho más accesible, ágil y escalable.

Las estructuras burocráticas convencionales ya no pueden competir con el aprendizaje en red. Su escalabilidad se ha estancado por las limitaciones físicas, económicas, geográficas, políticas, temporales y socio-culturales. Las carreras emergentes del milenio se aprenden mejor en las redes cognitivas que en las aulas encapsuladas. Pero nuestros gobernantes no lo quieren aceptar y deciden sostener el sistema a como dé lugar.

10 ways Authentic Learning is dIsRuPtInG Education

10 ways Authentic Learning is dIsRuPtInG Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Authentic learning is a term used to describe instructional strategies that are designed to connect the subjects students are taught in school and university to the real world.

Authentic learning experiences help students understand the relevance of what they’re learning and how they can apply their skills in the professional world. Rather than discussing hypothetical situations or memorizing information, students are given the opportunity to put their skills and knowledge to practical use in the development of solutions or products that will be of immediate benefit to their communities and the world at large.

Although authentic learning has similarities with project-based and service-based learning, it’s unique in that students aren’t merely doing role play or running through a simulation of what happens in the workplace. In order for a learning experience to be truly authentic, students must do work that is relevant to their lives while also having an impact on or application in the real world.

Preparing for AI jobs: Why Nanodegrees are the future of education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Large enterprises, startups and high-performance businesses across industries are increasingly turning to Artificial Intelligence and advanced analytics to make faster, more effective, data-driven decisions. The volume of unstructured and structured data stored by enterprises is growing at an accelerating rate.

The demand for skilled data scientists and candidates with AI skills is at an all-time high. Yet developing those skills typically requires significant investments of time, energy and money. Businesses are struggling to successfully deploy and manage AI projects due to lack of resources. And employees interested in preparing for these highly-coveted jobs incur significant debt, and delay other strategic business initiatives until they completed a traditional degree after business hours.

The LMS revolution is coming. Are you prepared?

The LMS revolution is coming. Are you prepared? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

According to research done by the eLearning Guild in the Corporate Learning Management Systems report, “Many organizations say they are failing to meet their learning challenges.” (eLearning Guild 2018) The LMS is one of the largest culprits of this. Tracking training is important and the LMS is very good at showing what’s been completed, but not much more than that.

I’m curious… What are the first few thoughts that come to mind when you think about your LMS?

Are they positive? Maybe they are and that’s great. Honestly, I’m happy you feel that way. The LMS does provide you with content you need to do or improve at your job.

Or are they negative or neutral? Is it hard to find what you’re looking for or hard to get what you need on the go? Is it organized, easy to navigate, easy to search, and easy to share?

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.

As more computers equal or surpass human cognitive capacities, I see three broad purposes for education:

In response, we’ve taken the popular SAMR model and use it as a framework to understand how to better teach with apps.

This post started as a look at “app workflow”–the patterns of student and teacher interaction, the movement of learning artifacts, the visibility of quality criteria, assessment results, and so on, but we thought it might be better to start with some concrete examples of the movement from basic technology integration–in this case, apps–to that which redefines the learning process entirely.

5 actividades de discusión en línea para implementar en un curso

5 actividades de discusión en línea para implementar en un curso | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Mucho se habla de la importancia de promover el pensamiento crítico y reflexivo en nuestros estudiantes, competencia fundamental hoy en día; se comenta de las muchas actividades que pueden llevarse a cabo en clase presencial con este fin, surge entonces la pregunta ¿Cómo fomentar este tipo de pensamiento pero en un ambiente virtual?.

En mi opinión las discusiones en línea nos permiten desarrollar esta competencia en los estudiantes. Los debates virtuales permiten abordar temas complejos que se pueden analizar y diseccionar desde varios puntos de vista, a través de, un intercambio de ideas entre los participantes, animado y dirigido por el profesor.

Una discusión virtual puede aportar mucho en un curso, entre sus beneficios se pueden mencionar la construcción de conocimiento, desarrollo de sentido de pertenencia al grupo y al curso, colaboración, y por supuesto potenciar el pensamiento crítico y reflexivo.

Se puede argumentar que en los cursos virtuales siempre se coloca más de alguna actividad de este tipo, sin embargo, una de las razones de porqué este tipo de actividades fracasa se debe a la falta de estructura y objetivos instruccionales claros, el hilo de la discusión no tiene una guía clara y mucho menos un consenso al cual llegar. Cuando los estudiantes aún están aprendiendo, una estructura adecuada puede mantener la discusión enfocada y progresiva en cuanto al intercambio de conocimiento, puede terminar en un consenso y dar lugar a conclusiones divergentes que generan una comprensión más profunda del tema.

The Science of Learning (and technology's impact on how we learn)

The Science of Learning (and technology's impact on how we learn) | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

I leaned over the shoulder of a student in the library. She was quietly working with headphones in, and completely focused. What caught my attention is that she would continually lift her phone up over the textbook, and then jot something down on the paper to her left. It was a motion and process that she repeated at least seven times before I headed over to see what was going on.

As I got closer I could see that it was a math textbook, and her paper was filled with equations, problems, and steps. I thought to myself, that sure doesn’t look like my math homework, which was always a mess of numbers and lines and eraser marks from messing up!

What happened next caught me by surprise. Not because I couldn’t believe it, but because it changed the way I viewed math forever. She would pick up her iPhone (or maybe it was an Android) and open up an app. Then flicking over to a clear screen, she would hover the phone over a specific problem in her textbook. What happened next was nothing short of magic. If, per chance, someone had been transported here from even 20 years ago they might not have believed it was possible.
