El aporte de las TIC al aprendizaje social

El aporte de las TIC al aprendizaje social | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it


Con las nuevas tecnologías podemos replicar en la web las interacciones cara a cara que suceden en el interior de un aula o de una oficina, multiplicándolas en tiempo, participantes y espacios. Estas experiencias pueden ser capitalizadas como verdaderas oportunidades de aprendizaje, y allí vemos que las TIC ofrecen un aporte único a propuestas educativas donde el componente social es un andamiaje importante.


Las tradicionales clasificaciones sobre aprendizaje nos hablan de distintos tipos:

Digital promise, with help from Google, coaches teachers on tech

Digital promise, with help from Google, coaches teachers on tech | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Through a partnership with Google for Education, the education nonprofit Digital Promise seems to have found success in tackling what it says is among the foremost issues in education today — the "digital use divide."

Earlier this week, the two partners released a report outlining the results of the Dynamic Learning Project, a teacher-coaching program piloted in 50 low-income schools across Alabama, California, Pennsylvania, South Carolina and Texas last year. The report found that instructional coaching — the process of teaching the teacher — paid dividends for teachers who might have struggled to otherwise integrate technology into their classroom.

Edumorfosis's insight:

We have mentioned it before: The big tech companies will take charge of the educators professional development. The education system doesn't know how to, can't do it and doesn't want to do it.

Instructional Design Models and Theories: Elaboration Theory

Instructional Design Models and Theories: Elaboration Theory | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The Elaboration Theory relies upon the idea that instruction should be offered to learners in increasing order of difficulty. For example, if the instructor wants to teach the learner a more complex process or idea, he/she should begin by providing the learner with the most basic version of the process, and then gradually present lessons that work up to the desired result. Throughout each of the lessons the learner should receive a summary of the previous lessons, so that he/she can fully grasp each step of the process.

Ten reasons teachers can struggle to use technology in the classroom

Somewhere in a school near you, a teacher is struggling to handle a query from a student whose laptop has a flat battery or another who’s watching a funny cat video on a phone. Perhaps the wireless internet connection is dropping in and out, or the electronic whiteboard is playing up.

While teachers are expected to integrate technology into the classroom, the reality can be very different. Some of the issues teachers can face relate to the technology itself. Others relate to student or parent expectations, or whether there’s enough of the right professional development to help teachers become proficient in digital technology. Without addressing these concerns, we risk creating a generation of students ill-prepared for a digital future.

Are there things that can’t be taught with Microlearning?

Are there things that can’t be taught with Microlearning? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

While microlearning has proven itself as a powerful way to maximize learning retention and help learners stay engaged with training, some L&D professionals fairly point out that some things simply can’t be learned in less than 10 minutes.For instance, someone can’t learn a musical instrument in four minutes, nor can they develop a full sales skill set.

Where does this leave training professionals? According to Bersin by Deloitte, most learners won’t watch videos longer than four minutes, and attention spans are shorter than they’ve ever been. That means for most people, longer training videos won’t keep them engaged, which amounts to nothing being learned when they tune out. How then, can training fit the needs and habits of today’s learners while teaching complex skills?

5 guidelines for developing good Online Assessments

5 guidelines for developing good Online Assessments | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Last month’s article discussed the many benefits of computer-based assessments, but it ended with a caveat. Technology cannot make a poorly designed assessment better—it just scales a poorly designed assessment to more people. In fact, the hardest part of developing good online assessments often happens offline—developing assessments that are reliable, fair, valid, and transparent.

This month's article begins with that caveat. And while we can't lay out everything needed to develop good online or computer-based assessments, this article offers five guidelines for developing assessments that are fair, reliable, transparent, and valid, in other words, that are "good".

[PDF] Habilidades del siglo XXI: Cuando el futuro es hoy | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Cada tiempo tiene sus modas. 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 xxi configuran una referencia habitual. ¿Cómo saber si se trata de una moda que en algunos años se habrá olvidado o de una cuestión clave para pensar la pedagogía contemporánea?

El recorrido que nos propone se remonta al siglo pasado para encontrar fundamentos teóricos, navega en las aguas del presente con la intención de ofrecer algún tipo de estructura a todo aquello que se dice sobre el tema y se proyecta en las próximas décadas.

Bringing Project Based Learning to our classroom

Bringing Project Based Learning to our classroom | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Teaching is a scientific art. There are things we understand about the brain and learning, but there are also nuances of understanding the human emotion that impacts classrooms. Children learn by doing. Children are naturally curious. Children are engaged when they are interested in the topic. Margaret Semrud-Clikeman, Ph.D., LP, ABPdN, University of Minnesota Medical School states, “It is important for teachers and parents to understand that maturation of the brain influences learning readiness. For teachers, this is especially important when designing lessons and selecting which strategies to use.”* These research-based facts and more are going to drive my classroom this year.

Si bien en un principio parecía que nos decantábamos por singularizar el proyecto de Educación Disruptiva (aquí estuvo el error), ya que de lo que se trata es de generalizar a lo que queremos llegar, una nueva cultura con valores nuevos de los que emane un paradigma de paradigmas y siempre en posicionamientos abiertos y en red.

Mostraremos un núcleo de la propuesta abierta, en red, interactiva, multimedia, en movimiento continuo, sin un cierre definitivo. La información en el s. XXI sigue esa dirección, y debemos abanderar esa línea de investigación en el mundo.

Una característica de la educación disruptiva es su viralidad, y su despliegue ubicuo. De ahí que la creación de una radio de educación/sociedad disruptiva en la Red, sea un paso importante en su globalización necesaria.

What is the Discovery Method of Instructional Design?

What is the Discovery Method of Instructional Design? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

So how exactly does the Discovery Method solve this problem?

Well, it’s a method we use to create content, which enables the learner to ‘Discover’ the expertise through reflecting on their own experiences. What this boils down to is allowing a learner to plug information into the online learning unit. The unit is then clever enough to recall this information later on, letting them think about what they’ve just learned in context. Let’s make things easier by putting this into context. In this example, a learner is finding out about how to manage customer expectations:

Digital classrooms and the quest for core-knowledge – but I can’t read it

Digital classrooms and the quest for core-knowledge – but I can’t read it | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

There are several problems with the idea that students can acquire core-knowledge in any subject using this approach. Firstly, research has shown it to have zero effect on comprehension. The key issue is that this approach assumes children are largely identical; that the teacher has sufficient personal core-knowledge to teach it – and beyond; and the standardised text is revealing a true picture of the student.

In digital contexts, using the Internet to search for text to apply to an online course, or being able to operate MS Office like word-processors isn’t sufficient. Some understanding of eLearning principles and methods is needed. For example: is the text being given to students too complex to decode.

If we generously round up the total market value of both Instructure Canvas and Blackboard Learn to $2 billion USD each, they still account for very little as the industry reached $107 billion in revenue in 2015 globally. Instructure’s revenues for all of 2017 was short of $159 million, and analyst Research and Markets forecasts EdTech revenues tripling to $325 billion by 2025.

Embracing a Principle-Based Model of Instructional Design

Embracing a Principle-Based Model of Instructional Design | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

As an instructional designer, I’ve often wondered why so many organizations place such a heavy emphasis on adhering to instructional design processes such as ADDIE (Analysis, Design, Development, and Evaluation) or SAM (Successive Approximation Model), when the reality is that many of the problems that we address with effective instructional designs are ill-structured and require much more complex problem solving-strategies than what is represented in these processes. Even expert instructional designers will agree that they don’t follow such linear models in their daily processes. Instead, they draw from the strategies (or underlying principles) that they know will best serve the purpose and intentions of their designs.
