El sistema ya no "chirría", falla... (2ª parte)

El sistema ya no "chirría", falla... (2ª parte) | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Es un hecho ampliamente aceptado que ya tenemos una grave crisis en la educación superior. Por ejemplo, podemos ver esto reflejado por los resultados en una encuesta nacional de EE.UU. patrocinado por el tiempo y la Corporación Carnegie y realizada por GfK Custom Research North America Esta investigación utilizó una muestra nacional de 1.000 adultos estadounidenses y 540 administradores de alto nivel en públicas y privadas de dos y cuatro años de colegios y universidades. Los resultados revelaron que el 89% de los adultos estadounidenses y el 96% de los administradores de alto nivel en los colegios y universidades, dijo la educación superior está en crisis, y casi la mitad de ambos grupos consideran la crisis como "grave". Sólo podemos esperar que esta vez, datos y pruebas no serán ignorados simplemente porque no están alineados con los mantras comúnmente aceptadas. Esta situación se debe requerir al menos algunas respuestas de los que dijeron que en la década pasada que "el mundo académico debe aprender de negocio" y que el excedente de la eficiencia y la (financieros) es todo lo que importa. Lo más probable es en el tiempo las mismas voces dará una conferencia a las mismas audiencias cómo era obviamente una tontería aceptar como viable la renuncia y abandono de los principios de libertad académica y autonomía intelectual.

[Infographic] Reshaping Modern Education with Technology

[Infographic] Reshaping Modern Education with Technology | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Over the last few years, modern education has gone through some major changes. Teachers have long adopted interactive technologies and students increasingly use smart devices to access learning resources.

Such trends are mainly triggered by the development of web technologies and the growing use of mobile devices in particular. The ability to access the Internet almost anytime and anywhere is, of course, the primary driver of innovation in the education sector. As opposed to older generations, modern teenagers grew up using technology and can hardly imagine their lives without smartphones and tablets, which are becoming irreplaceable learning resources. Often referred to as Digital Natives, these generations keep exploring the potential of new technologies and readily use them for educational purposes.

The accelerated technology development, therefore, enabled us to access previously unimaginable spaces, thus changing our perspective on most aspects of our daily lives. In the world where information is constantly available, the ways we learn and teach are bound to change. Unsurprisingly, most schools and universities worldwide are introducing policies regarding technology implementation, while students continue to explore it on their own.

Consequently, we are witnessing new paradigms in the modern education system, with more and more resources being made available to students’ in classrooms. However, there are also numerous self-study applications, tools and online learning resources that enable people of different ages to study whenever and whatever they want.

The Reshaping Modern Education with Technology Infographic outlines some of the key figures related to the use of technology in modern education, particularly focusing on language learning. As a highly interactive field, language learning largely benefited from the development of tools that enable real-time communication. Currently, language learning is one of the most popular fields of educational innovation, especially in terms of self-study apps. With thousands of downloads and almost as many active users, language learning apps are changing the ways we approach languages.

[Infogaphic] 3 reasons why Social Media training should be mandatory for employees

[Infogaphic] 3 reasons why Social Media training should be mandatory for employees | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Media plays a vital role in sharing current events and increase public awareness by responsibly sharing information concerning an issue. There are accepted practices that media houses generally follow as guidelines. Social media on the other hand is a tool that has no such guidelines. People are at liberty to share, create, exchange information, videos, pictures and ideas on social networks and virtual communities.

As Social networking sites are growing tremendously, so are the security risks associated with them. There can be several risk factors involved like: people sharing improper views through social sites which otherwise they may hesitate to share in person. Sometimes inadvertent comment or message may lead to the sharing of sensitive information resulting in adverse effects. To avert such unpleasant situations employees should be trained on how they should use social media. Such training should be made mandatory so that they are clear about thedo’s and don’ts while using the social networking sites.

Conectivismo y educación: el medio eres tú | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Las críticas a la teoría conectivista desarrollada por George Siemens y Stephen Downes se centran principalmente en la dificultad de aplicar sus presupuestos al mundo de la educación y en la falta de elementos de carácter pedagógico en los que sustentarnos para encarar nuestra profesión. Este acercamiento al conectivismo probablemente no sea sino un síntoma de que las destrezas que hasta ahora adquiríamos como docentes no bastan para enfrentarnos a los nuevos procesos de aprendizaje en red en una sociedad que se transforma tan rápidamente. ¿Por qué?

Cada día, hay un número creciente de e-learning, los proveedores de contenidos producen y distribuyen material que cubre una amplia gama de temas, difiere en calidad y está representada en varios formatos. Últimamente, los diferentes dispositivos y tecnologías de red permiten al usuario acceder a contenidos educativos amplios en casi cualquier lugar, en cualquier momento y desde cualquier dispositivo. La ubicuidad de E- learning tiene el potencial suficiente para proporcionar de manera continuada y basada en el contexto, el material educativo a los alumnos, en cualquier momento y en cualquier lugar y con cualquier dispositivo. Puesto que cada persona tiene diferentes expectativas relacionadas con el contenido, el rendimiento de la entrega y la presentación de ese contenido, es conveniente que el e-aprendizaje ubicuo, sea el adecuado para proporcionar al usuario, la personalización del e-material de aprendizaje, por lo tanto debe realizar una doble función: inclusividad (diferencia) y calidad de los mismos.

Si usted es un director o jefe de capacitación, usted ha sido testigo desde hace bastante tiempo: el perfil de sus alumnos está cambiando poco a poco. Ahora hay muchos más miembros de la Generación Y en su compañía y tomando sus programas de capacitación. Estos son los Millennials o los estudiantes modernos, los cuales son muy diferentes de temperamento, actitudinalmente y psicológicamente que sus predecesores, los Baby Boomers.


Como encargado de atender las necesidades de las nuevas generaciones, debe crear cursos que atraigan sus personalidades únicas, gustos distintos y preferencias de aprendizaje. Hay que diseñar cursos "modernos" que enganchen a los Millennials y mantenerlos pegados a la pantalla.

Sin duda alguna es evidente el desarrollo de la sociedad red. Es tanto su influencia y su desarrollo en el siglo XXI, que ha logrado sacudir el poder tradicionalista político y económico que caracterizó parte del siglo 19 y todo el siglo 20. Ante este panorama se le suma el paradigma tecnológico llamado informacionalismo, responsable de crear las bases de la denominada Sociedad Red. Tales conceptos han generado una relativa apertura para reflexionar de manera compleja el proceso de transformación cultural mediados por tecnologías, y, su impacto en el desarrollo y diseño del aprendizaje. Esto ha ocasionado el establecimiento de muchas interrogantes en el colectivo, las instituciones sociales y en cómo podemos a través de la educación desarrollar la sociedad que deseamos tener, aspirar y encaminar.

[Infographic] 3 tips to create Immersive Learning Environment in eLearning Courses

[Infographic] 3 tips to create Immersive Learning Environment in eLearning Courses | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
It is a common understanding that learning is gaining knowledge or skill that can be used in real-life situations;it also helps find solutions to various problems. Traditionally learning took place only in classrooms which was more of theoretical learning, on the job through hands-on-approach. However, with online learning, immersive learning is being discussed a lot these days.

Immersive learning can blend well with e-learning. As the name suggests, immersive learning is the environment that allows learners to be completely immersed in the learning activity. It provides a simulated learning environment that provides learners with experiences that is close to what they encounter in real life. It may be in the form of game-based learning, drama, story etc. This not only enables learners to involve themselves fully but also helps to sharpen their technical, analytical and creative skills.

Immersive learning environment creates an enjoyable learning experience as the learner is completely involved into learning resulting in increasedknowledgeretention. Blending immersive learning techniques with e-learning brings in maximum impact;using various characters in the course, case studies, role plays enable effective knowledge transfer.

15-point post-course Evaluation Checklist for eLearning developers

15-point post-course Evaluation Checklist for eLearning developers | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Evaluating your eLearning course by the toughest judges – your learners, is the cornerstone of eLearning development. Receiving feedback from your learners enables you, the instructional designer, to improve your course.

Since iteration is a recurring step in the eLearning course design, it follows each time after the evaluation step.

There are many advantages of conducting a post-course evaluation. For starters, it helps you understand your weak areas – both in design and delivery of your course. The core of this activity is to upgrade the course information according to the current times and needs of the performance environment.

A post-course evaluation usually appears as a comprehensive survey. Most of the time, we see this survey too short or too long, but seldom covering the key areas of an eLearning course’s design and delivery process.

Now is the chance to involve your learners in the design process of your next course. This step is highly crucial to determine the desired pathway of future course designs.

In this article, we will discuss all elements that need to be present in the post-course evaluation survey. Use this checklist to guide you to create your next survey.

There are no shortcuts to this step. You cannot cut corners. You need to make sure nothing is left behind. And trust me, this list is anything but short! A total of 15 criteria need to be included in your course evaluation towards the end of your course. Notice how these criteria comprise of a complete eLearning course design:

MOOCs have the potential to reach learners who otherwise may not have access to postsecondary education, but they have a long way to go in proving reliability of information and quality of content.

That may sound like a researcher or wary administrator’s perspective, but these sentiments are strongly expressed by today’s college students.

In a new qualitative data report, Communication Instructor Dr. Andrew Cole at Waukesha County Technical College and Dr. C. Erik Timmerman, associate professor at the Department of Communication at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, reveal the thoughts of one large university’s current college students toward MOOCs.

Or so it seems by the countless articles we read on the topic each week. As plugged-in educators who are putting together the first annual Digital Citizenship Summit, we are swimming in a sea of amazing advice concerning cyberbullying, empathy online, public shaming, tech balance, digital tattoos, and more. To us, it often seems like everyone is well-versed in digital citizenship and everything it entails. They’re not.

Planning the Digital Citizenship Summit has provided us with a great deal of insight into how the digital citizenship community, and education world at large, can better promote the concept of digital citizenship. We have been able to see firsthand the major gap in understanding between digital citizenship evangelists and the general masses, and have discovered some potential ways to decrease the gap.
