6 future Learning Scenarios for envisioning schools of tomorrow

6 future Learning Scenarios for envisioning schools of tomorrow | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

One cannot begin to imagine future learning scenarios if we can’t see where we’ve come from. I remember sitting at my desk with my textbook and notebook open and the teacher at the front of the class lecturing. In the afternoon I would go home to reread the texts and notes, my eyes glazing over and my head nodding in exhaustion. The tests and assignments came and went. We learned to ‘play school’ with startling exactness. At least that’s how the core classes went.

[eBook] 12 examples that prove Mobile Learning and Microlearning is an essential combination to meet your learning mandate

[eBook] 12 examples that prove Mobile Learning and Microlearning is an essential combination to meet your learning mandate | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

At EI Design, we have been offering learning and performance support solutions for over 16 years now. In the early years, our solutions offered what is now known as traditional eLearning and in 2011, we added the mobile learning solutions practice. In 2015, we added the microlearning-based training practice.

Specifically, over the last 5 years, we have seen a steady increase in the integration of mobile learning as an integral part of most organizations’ training deliveries.

The usage of learners’ smartphones and tablets under the Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy has helped mobile learning gain further momentum. The increase in the millennial workforce too has contributed to its wider usage. Alongside, we saw the introduction of microlearning.

Initially, it was used to offer performance support intervention and support to formal training. Over the last 2 years, we have seen it mature to become a mainstream offering that can be used for both formal and informal training.

It is interesting to note that while the demand for short, focused training has always been there from learners, the increased mobile learning adoption has facilitated the usage of microlearning as a mainstream training strategy.

Teachers embracing EdTech but need more training

Teachers embracing EdTech but need more training | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

A recent study conducted in the USA by Edtech company SAM Labs in conjunction with independent online surveys company 72Point threw up two definitive conclusions. The first, supported by a huge 82% of respondents, who filled out the survey online, was that pupils who regularly use technology in the classroom are better prepared for their future entry into the modern workforce. That can be considered a significant plus for the Edtech industry and its growing influence in the curriculum.

Better engagement through eLearning Automation

Better engagement through eLearning Automation | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Students like to be in control of their learning. They want to choose what’s interesting and relevant, and to receive support when they need it and independence when they don’t. More importantly, students perform better in situations that consider their learning styles, preferences, and areas of interest.

As the focus on personalizing learning increases, more opportunities have become available for personalization with technology. Learning Management Systems are increasingly offering support for concepts like personal learning paths, and even integrations with third-party systems through tools like Zapier, or even marketing automation tools like Infusionsoft.

Preparing students to lose their jobs (and Faculty to keep theirs)

Preparing students to lose their jobs (and Faculty to keep theirs) | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

A recent study reveals that young people today could have as many as 16-17 different jobs in 5 industries.

As the rate of technological change becomes exponential, the future of work requires adapting to change, recognizing job failure as a norm, and (since we are living longer) a longer career arc in which to experience many different and uniquely distinct careers.

Are most institutions of higher education preparing students for this reality?

According to the recent report by the Foundation for Young Australians, The New Work Mindset (a study built upon the Future of Work research studies of both the McKinsey Global Institute and the World Economic Forum), young people today could have as many as 16-17 different jobs in 5 industries:

The missing half of training

The missing half of training | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The training industry is based on models that were developed for the military. The Systems Approach to Training includes the ADDIE [analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation] model, with variations used throughout industry. Robert Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction inform much of instructional design. Gagne’s early work was in military training. Other models were developed in the second half of the 20th century but they mostly remained in line with their military roots. One model for instructional design that I promote is Cathy Moore’s Action Mapping. It’s a welcome change, but is focused on individual training.

In the military there is much more training than individual, skill & knowledge-focused, course work. There is also ‘collective training’. Collective training is what military units do when they are not on operations. Collective training is run by operators, not trainers, and is informal, social, with an emphasis on simulation. Types of simulation can range from expensive highly technical combat mission flight simulators, to distributed war games, or command post exercises involving thousands of personnel.

Cómo aprender sin estudiar

Cómo aprender sin estudiar | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Todos sabemos que estudiando se aprende, pero ¿es la única forma de hacerlo? ¡Claro que no! Evidentemente nos referimos a esa connotación negativa de estudiar: a aquello de memorizar, empollar…

De hecho, en el terreno académico se suele estudiar para aprobar, por lo que finalmente se obtiene un aprendizaje ineficaz. Y eso no lleva a ningún lado.

Todos hemos memorizado inútilmente contenidos para luego soltar la parrafada y salir airosos de un examen. Y me temo que la cosa poco cambia… Bueno, mmmm… También están los que pagan para aprobar. Echa un vistazo a esta promo de la web “Aprobar Sin Estudiar” que no tiene desperdicio

Inside the school Silicon Valley thinks will save education

Inside the school Silicon Valley thinks will save education | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Founded in 2013 by former Google head of personalization Max Ventilla, AltSchool has poached high level executives from Google and Uber. It’s got users—in this case, parents—applying by the thousands. It’s actually making money. And as of today, Mark Zuckerberg just became one of its largest investors.

The young Facebook founder is emerging as one of the country’s most generous philanthropists and a leading activist for school reform, and AltSchool appears to fit into his vision. Through his education-focused non-profit, Zuckerberg has contributed a large portion of a new $100 million round of venture funding to AltSchool. The round, which AltSchool announced today, also includes existing investors such as Andreessen Horowitz and Peter Thiel's Founder’s Fund, as well as eBay founder Pierre Omidyar and Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of the late Steve Jobs. The investment brings AltSchool’s total funding to $133 million. But more importantly, it means AltSchool has been anointed by the top minds in Silicon Valley as the best hope for the future of education.

EdTech Research Study: What really has an impact?

EdTech Research Study: What really has an impact? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

When making decisions about how your school and district use technology in classrooms, there are many things to consider. During my travels to schools and conferences in different corners of the country, the conversation often comes back to one topic. What actually works? How can we get more impact from our EdTech?

If you are a regular follower of my blog, the phrase “tasks before apps” should sound familiar. I use it all the time as a way to refocus conversations around the purposeful use of digital tools. So earlier this year, the folks at SMART reached out to share research findings on educational technology. I wanted to learn more about their findings. Through a survey of hundreds of education leaders in ten countries, this study examined links between EdTech and learning outcomes.

El Personal Learning se transforma en personalizado con la ayuda de las tecnologías: AI, TIC, Machine Learning

El Personal Learning se transforma en personalizado con la ayuda de las tecnologías: AI, TIC, Machine Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El aprendizaje personalizado, propio e implícito en nuestros estudios y prácticas reales, se puede llevar a cabo donde, cuando y cómo se quiera, por lo que las modalidades formales, no formales, informales, en vez de estar segmentadas como hasta ahora, ya se “mezclan” entre si, con lo que el concepto de lo que conocemos por EDUCACIÓN, cambia radicalmente (germen de la Educación Disruptiva).


No concibo el Social learning sin el personalized learning, así como la educación inclusiva, el cambio de roles y la ayuda de las TIC, Internet, AI…Si abogamos por un aprendizaje donde el responsable sea el aprendiz, que no es lo mismo que se suele afirmas “el aprendizaje es el centro del aprendizaje, ya que estos postulados solo se contempla las fortalezas del mismo y se sigue sin tener en cuenta el cambio de roles” (Juan Domingo Farnós)
La definición de aprendizaje personalizado está evolucionando rápidamente y su diferencia con respecto a otros temas de la próxima generación, como el aprendizaje de la próxima generación y el aprendizaje combinado, puede que no esté claro. El aprendizaje personalizado puede tener lugar en entornos digitalmente mejorados o no.

How to keep the Humanity in online courses

How to keep the Humanity in online courses | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

If you have ever taken or considered taking an online course, you are well aware of some of the challenges and criticisms that online courses face. Some consider the fact that there is no physical, literal classroom a disadvantage. Others consider it an advantage. When taking an online course, it is true that there are no students in the desks next to you, and that there may be hundreds or even more than a thousand students participating in the same class. The lack of a physical classroom, however, does not have to be a disadvantage. One advantage of online courses is that students from all over the world with a wide variety of backgrounds, cultures, and languages are coming together to learn, collaborate, and share their ideas together.

Modern Professional Learning: A new mindset, toolset and skillset | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Today there is no longer such a thing as a job for a life – only a life of jobs – and whereas your own organisation will provide you with training, e-learning and other learning opportunities, it can’t possibly provide you with everything you will need throughout your career. It is ultimately your responsibility to take charge of your own lifelong learning – that is your own continuous self-improvement (for the now) and self-development (for the future). To do this you need a new learning mindset as well as a new toolset and skillset.

11 EdTech Incubators focused to change education forever

11 EdTech Incubators focused to change education forever | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The role of incubators and accelerators is much wide now and it has gone beyond the four walls of the corporate start-up office to reach out, add value and contribute to the wider business ecosystems.

Across the globe, Incubators and accelerators have played a decisive role in shaping start-up networks by offering them the necessary educational, mentoring and funding opportunities for current and future diverse founders.

There may have been many business incubators around the world but it’s just the few that focus on education technology. And, it is only in the recent past that there has been a major growth in the number of these highly-focused incubators. Part of this is due to the increased attention to genuinely help education. One of the reasons why incubators are also thriving is simply because edtech is a solid investment and education technology market is expected to grow at tremendous level.

Every government is backing the idea of large scale efforts that yield useful lessons for relatively quick whole-system reform.

There is a dire need to adopt new ideas and strategies which assist the system to move forward in performance and most importantly to raise the bar and close gaps for all students. It is a fact that student achievement levels have changed very little in the past two decades and this facts haunt time and again whenever one speaks of education reform today.

FRACTURE lines can be seen everywhere in America’s higher education system, from skyrocketing tuition costs and mounting student debt to a significant mismatch between the skills employers seek and those students possess upon graduation (see figure 1).5 These pressures, coupled with the recognition that the status quo is unsustainable, are, in turn, fueling innovation across the higher education ecosystem. While it’s still early days, we’re beginning to see the emerging outlines of a new landscape for higher education.

Educators have an endless pool of potential edtech products they can choose from to fill their classroom needs. They could spend hours wading through potential options, weighing the pros and cons of an expensive program. However, the reality is that very few of the available edtech programs are currently designed to solve an actual classroom problem. Teachers are being forced to use programs that don’t do anything to aid their instruction on a daily basis.

27 characteristics of Authentic Assessment

27 characteristics of Authentic Assessment | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

What is authentic assessment?

Almost 25 years ago, I wrote a widely-read and discussed paper that was entitled: “A True Test: Toward More Authentic and Equitable Assessment” that was published in the Phi Delta Kappan. I believe the phrase was my coining, made when I worked with Ted Sizer at the Coalition of Essential Schools, as a way of describing “true” tests as opposed to merely academic and unrealistic school tests. I first used the phrase in print in an article for Educational Leadership entitled “Teaching to the (Authentic) Test” in the April 1989 issue.

(My colleague from the Advisory Board of the Coalition of Essential Schools, Fred Newmann, was the first to use the phrase in a book, a pamphlet for NASSP in 1988 entitled Beyond standardized testing: Assessing authentic academic achievement in secondary schools. His work in the Chicago public schools provided significant findings about the power of working this way.)

Esto no sería posible sin el apoyo de empresas como CreativiTIC que especializan parte de su desarrollo a la línea de educación con plataformas y herramientas

Whether it’s my Uber driver, a parent, teacher, student etc. It seems that more often than not in various conversations I have people tell me that they (or their children) don’t “learn that way” in reference to how we traditionally do school. People explain that they are visual or like to work with their hands or need to talk to others and try some things out, which they often explain, is not how they were supposed to “learn” in school. Instead, success was determined by sitting still, individually completing endless packets or worksheets, and providing the right answers on the tests.
