Haciendo el Aprendizaje Basado en el Pensamiento

Haciendo el Aprendizaje Basado en el Pensamiento | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El aprendizaje basado en el pensamiento (TBL) es un modelo de enseñanza que ha reemplazado el aprendizaje basado en la memorización de textos escritos en muchas escuelas de España. En el TBL, se produce un giro en el que los estudiantes se convierten en el centro del aula, mientras el docente guía y promueve su aprendizaje activo, en contraste con el tipo de aprendizaje pasivo que tiene lugar cuando éste se basa en la repetición y la memorización.

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) through Virtual Reality: Is this the future of education?

Social and Emotional Learning (SEL) through Virtual Reality: Is this the future of education? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Increasingly, education isn’t all about maths, sciences, and languages. In fact, as forward-thinking educators know, the future of work will demand flexible, culturally fluent, emotionally intelligent workers. That trend is already being felt: for the last 20 years or so, the jobs that have grown the most, whether we consider wages or employment prospects, demand pretty advanced interpersonal skills to complement other talents.

7 unexpected benefits of Globalizing Online Training

7 unexpected benefits of Globalizing Online Training | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Globalizing online training requires you to adapt its contents to suit the needs of an international audience. Thus, you will need to translate your online training program to various languages and research the backgrounds of your audience. Globalizing online training will also require you to give localized examples that corporate learners can relate to. You must customize your graphic elements and respond to local requirements, such as licensing. Going global may seem like an uphill task but there are numerous benefits that you will gain. This article discusses 7 major benefits of globalizing online training.

Knowledge filters revisited

Knowledge filters revisited | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The concept of filtering sources of knowledge has informed the personal knowledge mastery framework for many years, as explained here in knowledge filters (2011). Recently, a “CBC News investigation found that a YouTube channel devoted to putting misleading headlines on TV stories from other stations is getting recommended more often than many mainstream news outlets.” Given the current general election in Ontario, this could be a concern for our democratic processes. But the real culprit is that our society — especially elected officials, educators, and businesses — has done little to promote real media literacy. We need better information, knowledge, and opinion filters, and nobody will give them to us. We have to create them ourselves.

What is Digital Learning?

What is Digital Learning? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Like any other function, learning and development (L&D) must assess the impact technology is having on its role within the workplace. For years, the use of technology within corporate learning centered around a single platform: the learning management system (LMS). Now, as the tech landscape becomes more diverse and integrated into the workflow, “digital learning” is starting to replace “eLearning” as a main point of conversation.

But what does “digital learning” mean?
What tools play a role in digital learning?
How should this technological evolution shape future workplace learning strategies?

Teachers working harder not smarter

Teachers working harder not smarter | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Teachers Working Harder Not Smarter – A recent article shared a Study that finds teacher stress levels on par with those of physicians and nurses. I don’t disagree that traditional educators are under immense stress. Let’s look at why this is and why it’s self induced

Note, historically, those in the education field might think to erroneously capitalize on this research, to ask for similar compensation, but they would be missing the real reason they are under stress, why more money won’t fix their stress and why they have directly caused this stress on themselves

Can we first agree that education exists to empower ALL students with effective, efficient, consistent, affordable, relevant, student success outcomes, that result in individual student, sustained, performance improvement outcomes? I hope so.

3 ways technology supports Project-Based Learning

3 ways technology supports Project-Based Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

As technology continues to change the workforce around us, educators scramble to prepare students with the skills they'll need to succeed in a work environment that doesn't even exist yet. Though no one can predict what much of the workforce will look like even a decade down the line, it's a safe bet that technology will continue to handle more of the grunt work, which will free us up to handle more of the cerebral work.

La educación, el mejor antídoto contra la infoxicación

La educación, el mejor antídoto contra la infoxicación | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La infoxicación es uno de los cánceres de nuestra sociedad, no porque tengamos mucha información, sino porque tenemos falsas expectativas sobre el acceso y el exceso de información. Hoy en día, la falacia es que el exceso de información nos acerca a la verdad, pero no está tan claro. Tenemos esa tentación de acumular información para no tener que pensar, pero el Big Data no resuelve los grandes misterios de la sociedad en la que vivimos. No existe un método para eliminar el exceso de información, sino un sesgo natural producto de nuestras experiencias y deseos. Este sesgo tiene que ver con las fuentes que consumimos, con dónde ponemos la atención, qué cosas recordamos, qué cosas vinculamos con nuestros saberes, referentes…. Nosotros solemos estar de acuerdo con nosotros mismos y descartamos aquellas formas de pensar que nos contradicen; dando lugar a un fenómeno de aislamiento, que provoca que nos acerquemos a nuestros intereses o que dialoguemos con aquellas personas más afines a nosotros.

Defining the Modern Learner Experience

Defining the Modern Learner Experience | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

When designing and delivering content, we need to balance five elements of the learner experience: technology, design, people, place, and time.

In order to achieve this balance, we need to focus on the learner experience. We need to define and leverage how learning is structured, including when it is taking place, where it is taking place, and how it is being delivered.

In formally structured learning experiences, time, place and delivery modes are set. Proper sequencing leads learners through a scheduled beginning and a scheduled completion in a set environment (in-person or online). Learning events are sequenced to enable learners to practice and master a learning objective before mastering something else in the curriculum.

What is Instructional Design? Our guide to everything you need to know | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Instructional design is the art of creating engaging training experiences. It helps make information more digestible and improves the efficiency of learning. Instructional design is the difference between delivering training experiences and hoping your audience will extract the relevant learning from it, and guiding your learners through your content in a clear structure such that they can’t help but glean the information you want them too.

The purpose of a hackathon is a for a group of programmers to work together on a collaborative project. Most hackathons are competitions where several teams are competing to create prototypes that innovate on a theme or improve upon an existing project. A hackathon has plenty of benefits, which I plan to discuss below.

Dispelling the misconceptions of Online Education

Dispelling the misconceptions of Online Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

We read with interest the recent opinion article, “Online learning isn’t as inclusive as you may think,” originally published by University Affairs in early May. We feel the authors provided a limited perspective regarding online education and online learners. We disagree with several of the authors’ contentions and generalizations, which we outline below. We also direct the authors and readers to sources that may help to address some of the issues the authors raise.

First, the authors suggest online learning provides opportunities to those who might otherwise have been “excluded from or marginalized in higher education.” This is a generalization for which we feel perhaps the wrong words were chosen. At Athabasca University (AU), where we teach, we see no indication that our students come here due to feelings of exclusion or marginalization.

How can we amplify Student Learning? The answer from Cognitive Psychology

How can we amplify Student Learning? The answer from Cognitive Psychology | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In the early 2000s, anyone learning about pedagogy might have encountered “learning styles,” a collection of theories that assert people learn differently, coupled with the advice to teach in ways that include visual, auditory, and/or kinesthetic learning.

We know now from rigorous testing in cognitive psychology that learning styles are really learning preferences that do not correlate with achievement (An et al., 2017). It turns out that learning happens similarly in fully-cognitive functioning learners, and it all has to do with brain processes that enable long-term memory. Books about study techniques built around learning science principles have proliferated in recent years (Carey; Sousa; Brown), with some now also tackling the strategies teachers can employ to encourage students to study more effectively (Zakrajsec; Willingham).

Three ways schools can use workflow automation

Three ways schools can use workflow automation | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Workflow automation has taken many professional industries by storm, helping many workplaces reduce the number of tasks they have to perform, along wiht a substantial amount of workload.

Schools, in particular, are starting to see the benefits of workflow automation.

Workflow automation has been shown to reduce many time-consuming administrative tasks like creating and admissions, and permission requests, and even progress reports.

More so, automation frees up time for teachers, administrators, and front office staff to focus on what truly matters: education.

Here are a few ways that workflow automation has changed (and is changing) the world of K-12 education.

Deep Learning through Transformative Pedagogies

Deep Learning through Transformative Pedagogies | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Education has far out-stretched its humble beginning that only involved reading, writing and understanding the subjects taught. With changing dynamics, students have evolved from information gatherers to learners looking for practical learning that extends beyond examinations and classrooms. Learning today, breaks the barriers of curriculum, seeping into the nuances of the mind and its effect on the overall development of a student. It takes into consideration, the different kinds of learners, their capabilities and interests, skills and will, to make learning more effective, leading to the emergence of deep learning.

Benefits of Mobile Learning in Distance Education

Benefits of Mobile Learning in Distance Education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The number of smartphones is projected to reach the 5 billion dollar mark in 2019, which means that 67% of the world’s population will own a mobile phone. There is an impressive data[1] on the penetration of mobile internet-usage worldwide, and it will not be incorrect to assume that learning is happening formally/ informally through mobile devices already. Since the reach of mobiles phones is increasing each day, it is essential that educational technologies be oriented to embrace the new conduit of learning and teaching.

With apps and other available LMS Software, the usage of mobile phones for live face-to-face interaction between instructor and learner is not an issue any-more. Students who now opt for online distance courses stand to benefit and learn just by opening up specific mobile apps to consume learning material.

Distance education has evolved with the advent of distance learning platform. There are two types of course formats that online distance education has adopted. One model is asynchronous, and the other is synchronous.

How decisions architects made a century ago affect learning today

How decisions architects made a century ago affect learning today | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

One of the most contentious issues in education today is how much our schools have, or haven't, kept up with the times. The physical plants of schools represent the biggest capital investment in the provision of education, so they tend to stay in use as long as possible. And, Lange's book shows how everything from the dimensions of a room to the height and placement of windows can make certain kinds of learning easier or harder.

The familiar one-room schoolhouse ruled from Colonial times. But starting in the 19th century, she writes, big public schools were built in urban centers. They had facilities like gyms and auditoriums, sometimes open to the public. And they had several stories of classrooms, outfitted with the learning technologies of the time: blackboards, globes and maps.

These rooms were designed for one type of learning only: direct instruction. They had rows of individual desks, originally fixed to the floor, facing front — a slight update from the one-room schoolhouse days, when students often sat on benches. These rooms were lit by large rows of windows with light meant to come over the left shoulder to reduce glare and shadows on a student's notebook — presuming, of course, that the students must all be right-handed.

Classroom learning is a standard that has been around for nearly as long as structured civilizations have been around. It may have been subject to several changes based on evolving nature of society, as well as technology innovation; but the crux of it always remained the same - to push the enlightenment of minds through educational instruction.

Classroom learning may be a highly essential component of a functional society, but it isn’t exempt from drawbacks. This is a fact that has been especially focused on over the past 2 decades.

Los docentes actuales, los que seguimos el imperio de los sistemas educativos oficiales, no tenemos otra opción para ayudar a los aprendices…integrar conocimientos tecnológicos y la competencia de software en todas las unidades y en todas las acciones que se realicen….pensemos que cuando salgan de las aulas se encontraran con esta realidad.

 

Debemos entrenarlos a crear, a saber evaluar las fuentes más importantes (computación ubícua y I-bicuidad), a anlizar los datos en diferentes contextos…este es el vedardero aprendizaje y siendo “muy importantes los reyes godos”, no creen que lo más necesario ahora es eso, es lo que toca...

Se debe motivar los estudiantes a ayudarse unos a otros, y que también debe hacerse que haya un montón de docentes en el mundo conectado, hay algunos en la clase, algunos en su escuela, e incluso algunos que son contratados para enseñar que pueden entrar en el proceso…

Next Education: Improving learning outcome digitally

Next Education: Improving learning outcome digitally | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Lack of skilled teachers and quality content and poor ways of tracking learning outcomes are some of the issues plaguing the Indian education system. For instance, teachers are expected to use digital aids in the classroom without even receiving adequate training. Any inadequacies from the teachers’ end are often criticised without taking into consideration the lack of teacher-training programmes. Devising quality teacher-training programmes is the need of the hour. Teachers, even those who are remotely based, can take up various Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offered by various reputed institutes to upskill themselves and keep themselves abreast of the latest pedagogies. In an effort to train teachers with the best global teaching practices, Next Education, in collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-B) offers a couple of MOOCs. To address the problem, the government could also mull over setting up of public–private partnerships to design effective teacher-training programmes.

For online students, price matters but doesn't dictate choice

For online students, price matters but doesn't dictate choice | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Ask online students about the most important factors in choosing to enroll in a particular academic program, and total tuition and fees tops the list. Price clearly matters -- a lot.

But if you ask them whether they chose the least expensive program -- or if price trumped other factors such as convenience, program fit or reputation -- the answer gets a good bit more complex.

That is clear from the 2018 edition of Online College Students, an annual survey conducted by the Learning House, an online program management company, and Aslanian Research. The survey of 1,500 current or soon-to-be students in fully online academic programs (for degrees, certificates or licensure) has been conducted for seven years and examines their attitudes and behaviors on a range of topics.
