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.

Learning in complexity and chaos

Learning in complexity and chaos | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Most of our current work structures are designed to address complicated situations, such as constructing a building, launching a campaign, or designing a piece of equipment. But more of our challenges are complex and cannot be solved in a standard way — inequality, refugees, populism, racism. Whenever people are involved, within a global context of climate change, the situation is likely complex. In complex situations there is less reliance on detailed plans and analysis and a greater emphasis on continuous experimentation coupled with good observation and tracking. We have to learn constantly in complexity.

Aprender a aprender (learn to learn): Transformación metacognitiva

Hace un tiempo ya hablábamos de aprender a aprender como un proceso continuo por el cual los estudiantes se mueven hacia el aprendizaje relacional y de transformación para lograr la metacognición (la capacidad de monitorear, evaluar y cambiar la forma en que uno piensa y aprende) no es un proceso lineal; las personas pueden ir y venir entre varios tipos y profundidades de aprendizaje a lo largo del proceso de integración. Conductas de aprendizaje clave y condiciones (hasta ahora se refiere como procesos) asociado con intercambios y que sostenemos ayudan a fomentar la auto-organización como la capacidad de aprendizaje de un sistema social incluye “interacción”, “retroalimentación”, “reflexión” y “aprendizaje autodirigido .

¿Por qué hay alumnos que estudian mucho pero no les cunde?

¿Por qué hay alumnos que estudian mucho pero no les cunde? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

He estudiado muchísimo y me ha salido fatal el examen”, “lo sé, pero no sé cómo explicarlo”, “lo entiendo, pero cuando tengo que aplicarlo a un caso práctico no sé cómo hacerlo". Estas situaciones y otras similares indican que, habiendo hecho un esfuerzo por aprender, muchos estudiantes no lo logran. Y si esta situación se repite varias veces puede llegar (¡y de hecho llega!) a generar frustración y desmotivación hacia la materia que se está intentando aprender. Esta circunstancia tan desagradable podría haberse evitado si los estudiantes tuvieran claro, desde edades tempranas, qué es aprender y qué tienen que hacer para que no les resulte más difícil de lo que realmente es.

Edumorfosis's insight:

El sistema educativo ha fomentado que el estudiante debe acercarse al nivel intelectual del profesor. Se castiga el pensamiento lateral o divergente (en diferentes instancias). Se penaliza el hacer las cosas de maneras diferentes. Por eso, los estudiantes toman notas y estudian lo que dice su profesor. Lo que hacen es memorizar la información sin pensar o analizar sobre las diferentes variables (causas o consecuencias) que podrían existir cuando se está en contextos diferentes.

Los estudiantes entran a la universidad a conocer el mundo desde el aula, pero se les prohibe los espacios del mundo para accionar el conocimiento adquirido...

Innovating Pedagogy 2019: Learning can be wonderful!

Innovating Pedagogy 2019: Learning can be wonderful! | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Learning can be playful, wonderful, a way of understanding and making sense of the world” (Innovating Pedagogy 2019).

It’s here! If you are like me, you have been waiting since mid November for the release of the seventh Innovating Pedagogy report. The 2019 edition is a departure of the usual end of year publication date, hence the chronology moved from 2017 to 2019. I personally welcome the change, as it allows us at AACE Review to start the year with a fresh set of pedagogical innovations to contemplate.

The Open University published this edition in collaboration with the Centre for the Science of Learning & Technology (SLATE), University of Bergen, Norway. As usual, the report proposes ten innovations that are already in currency but have not had a profound influence on education in their current form. Each trend is rated based on its impact (high or medium) and placed on a timeline for adoption (ongoing, 2-5 years, 4+ years).

While the debate regarding how much screen time is appropriate for children rages on among educators, psychologists, and parents, it’s another emerging technology in the form of artificial intelligence and machine learning that is beginning to alter education tools and institutions and changing what the future might look like in education. It is expected that artificial intelligence in U.S. education will grow by 47.5% from 2017-2021 according to the Artificial Intelligence Market in the US Education Sector report. Even though most experts believe the critical presence of teachers is irreplaceable, there will be many changes to a teacher’s job and to educational best practices.

The results paint a picture of employees adapting to cope with the fast pace of modern working life. They are often busy and overwhelmed but still keen to learn; they value high quality content that’s personalized and relevant to their needs; and they are getting increasingly impatient and turned off by content and experiences that isn’t high value, relevant, and available when they want it.

La pregunta “¿cómo aprenden los docentes en el SXXI?” es una gran incógnita genérica que últimamente se plantea mucho en ámbitos educativos de diversos niveles, a veces puesta sobre la mesa por parte de instituciones oficiales, de administraciones educativas, y otras muchas veces, preguntada y respondida por personas que llevan años en el mundo de la educación de una manera u otra. Pero, en cualquier caso, no parece haber una respuesta tan genérica a esta pregunta como lo es la propia pregunta, o quizá es que sea una pregunta un tanto abierta para escribir un artículo dándole respuesta.

As automation and other technological advances change the way industries do work, employers are finding they need employees equipped with a mix of technical and communication skills.

This is a noticeable shift. Students graduating with STEM majors have, until recently, been seen as more marketable than their liberal arts counterparts, with some experts even wondering whether liberal arts programs are worth maintaining.

Yet new evidence shows liberal arts majors are snapping up jobs across sectors, even in the tech sphere, according to Robot Ready: Human+ Skills for the Future of Work, a report from the Strada Institute for the Future of Work.

Global report predicts EdTech spend to reach $252bn by 2020

Global report predicts EdTech spend to reach $252bn by 2020 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Leading education technology-focused conference, EdTechXGlobal has today released its forecast for the biggest trends set to impact the EdTech industry in 2016, from a report produced in partnership with IBIS Capital. Ahead of the annual summit in June, the report also demonstrates how the EdTech market has changed dramatically, with a growing realisation of the impact EdTech is having on the way skills are acquired and developed for the 21st Century workforce.

The report finds EdTech market acceleration will be hugely dictated by the global education expenditure market, as education becomes increasingly more expensive. In fact, the market is now over $5tn, 8x the size of the software market and 3x size of the media and entertainment industry, yet education is only 2% digitised. With the market expanding rapidly, so too is the annual summit, which will this year take place over two-days in London, with the launch of an inaugural Asian event in November.

3 eLearning trends to look for in 2019

3 eLearning trends to look for in 2019 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

I read a lot of “what’s coming in (insert year)” articles. I do feel like there are some trends that are featured every year. For example, gamification is ALWAYS included in a trend prediction round-up. Microlearning finds its way onto these sort of lists, as well. And of course, we can’t forget mobile—the trend that never dies!

Just because those techniques are listed every year doesn’t make them any less important. However, because the internet—myself included—has talked about those plenty, I’m going to skip them today. Let’s talk about some NEW trends for 2019 that weren’t that big in 2018. Exciting, right?

Adaptive algorithms designed for the education process tend to generate mixed results. While applications teaching languages, math, and early literacy have shown promising results, other areas tend to be ill-suited for teacher bots. A team of Dutch education researchers, however, recently ventured into relatively unexplored terrain. Led by Karel Kroeze of the University of Twente, the team created an adaptive algorithm that would evaluate and aid learners in forming scientific hypotheses.

As the Trump administration this week convenes a panel of experts to consider rewriting federal policies around digital learning and innovation, the eternal tension between fostering experimentation and protecting educational quality will be on prominent display.

The process, known as negotiated rule making -- or “neg reg,” for those in a rush -- began Tuesday with a wide-ranging session on the role of accreditors in policing innovation. This Thursday and Friday, three separate subcommittees will meet concurrently, including one on distance education whose meeting will be streamed online. Those groups will convene again for another two-day round in February, and once more in March.
