¿Qué es el Conectivismo? Una primera aproximación

¿Qué es el Conectivismo? Una primera aproximación | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El conectivismo, cuya traducción correcta al español sería conectismo (raíz “conect-” y sufijo “-ismo”, en analogía con otras palabras como común-ismo, anarqu-ismo o liberal-ismo), es una teoría del aprendizaje para la era digital que ha sido desarrollada por George Siemens y por Stephen Downes basado en el análisis de las limitaciones del conductismo, el cognitivismo (o cognitismo) y el Constructivismo (pedagogía) (o constructismo), para explicar el efecto que la tecnología ha tenido sobre la manera en que actualmente vivimos, nos comunicamos y aprendemos.


El conectismo es la integración de los principios explorados por la teoría del caos, las redes neuronales, complejidad y auto-organización. El aprendizaje es un proceso que ocurre dentro de una amplia gama de ambientes que no están necesariamente bajo el control del individuo. Es por esto que el conocimiento (entendido como conocimiento aplicable) puede residir fuera del ser humano, por ejemplo dentro de una organización o una base de datos, y se enfoca en la conexión especializada en conjuntos de información que nos permite aumentar cada vez más nuestro estado actual de conocimiento.

How to use 70:20:10 Model for eLearning solutions

How to use 70:20:10 Model for eLearning solutions | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

They are saying that only 1/10th of what we learn comes from traditional learning – such as books and classes. Even teachers have only limited influence, with them offering up 20% of what a person learns. Far more happens when employees are on the job and putting their new skills to the test. This is where the rubber hits the road, as it were. This is where theoretical ideas get transformed into practical skills. If that isn’t allowed to happen, these new ideas will decay and be forgotten. Here is a more analytical look on 70:20:10:

Here, we explore the benefits and challenges of a paperless classroom, and how educators can design a digital learning environment | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

It’s the age-old struggle for educators: “How do I reach my students?”

And for every generation of students, there have been different answers.

It is no different for today’s teachers. They are locked in a constant battle with themselves and their students as to how to maximize their teaching time in the classroom and their students’ learning potential. As they look for solutions, more teachers are realizing how educational technology can help bridge the gap between teaching and learning.

For teachers, educational technology is quickly becoming their biggest challenge and greatest asset. Technology is making an impact in classrooms in two key ways: By changing the way students learn and by changing the way educators teach.

Teachers talk Literacy Skills for a digital world

Teachers talk Literacy Skills for a digital world | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Print and pictures on the pages of a textbook, a novel, a poster board, a newspaper or a comic book – once upon a time that was how we consumed stories and other information.


Then came the internet. Today, digital natives are both consuming and creating online or on their mobile phones constantly, and the literacy skills needed for an interconnected world have changed. They include the ability to navigate thousands of sources, locate quality information, evaluate fact from fiction, synthesize, and create and communicate perspectives in the appropriate way to diverse audiences.

To what extent are the literacy skills required for a new world more or less the same as they were before? Will new literate practices need to be generated and if so, what are these new literacies and how can they be learned?

El aprendizaje en la era digital: Oportunidades infinitas

El aprendizaje en la era digital: Oportunidades infinitas | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Muchos identifican másters o cursos ad hoc con “desarrollo profesional”. Pero el “aprendizaje reglado” ya no es suficiente. En la era digital hay oportunidades infinitas de aprendizaje, más dinámicas y accesibles y todas ellas muy efectivas. Restringir las posibilidades a las opciones de siempre es una limitación.

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?

Five ways to create an environment where students can explore career options | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

While some educators and parents believe that career-readiness should start as early as possible, others believe it’s best for students to not “worry” about careers until college.

Regardless, most students are tasked with making big decisions related to their careers, like which major to declare in college, often before the age of 18, so it is our responsibility to help them explore their interests and make the best decisions for themselves.

Here’s how educators and parents can create environments where students can explore career options and validate their interests:

Education is clearly one of the most influential “sorters” in the world today.

Top 5 Digital Tools that students should try in 2018

Top 5 Digital Tools that students should try in 2018 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

One of the most profound ways in which technology has changed education is that it has made it more accessible than it was a few decades ago.

From laptops, educational apps to online courses, it is safe to say that technology has changed the face of education today. The host of digital tools now readily available have done a great deal in enhancing students’ learning experience. Technology is also playing a key role as a catalyst in encouraging interactions between parents, teachers and students – tapping into the domain – and ensuring that students construct knowledge. Thanks to the advent of Ed-tech, education is no more dominated simply by blackboards, chalks, dusters and textbooks.

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.
