How to Effectively Introduce Coding and Computational Thinking into Your Classroom | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

Here at home, the Ministry of Education recently announced a focus on coding and CT skills in our Ontario schools. What follows are recommendations related to how large jurisdictions can adequately prepare our teachers to introduce and foster the development of coding and CT skills in our students.

​Blockchain, Bitcoin and the Tokenization of Learning

​Blockchain, Bitcoin and the Tokenization of Learning | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

A handful of other universities (and even preschools) now accept Bitcoin for tuition, but that’s hardly the extent of how blockchains and tokens are weaving their way into education: Educators and edtech entrepreneurs are now testing out everything from issuing degrees on the blockchain to paying people in cryptocurrency for their teaching.

These education experiments with the blockchain involve invented currencies and tokens with names like Litecoin, Dogecoin, and CryptoKitties. Today they sound like longshots—but so did Bitcoin just a few years ago.

The future of education is Unstructured Learning, and here's why 

The future of education is Unstructured Learning, and here's why  | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it

Imagine coming into class one day after discovering the lesson plan you worked on all week has vanished. Your instincts, your experiences, your very trust in your own intuitive instructional nature—it’s all laid bare. Now what? It’s the time for teaching innovation and discovery of the unknown through messy learning. This is your chance to let your learners lead the way and show you what they can do. It’s time for some unstructured learning.

 

Just as the term suggests, unstructured learning is learning with no real structure. In this kind of learning there’s no linear journey from A to B to C and so on. There’s no definitive lesson plan or rigid template for this brand of teaching and learning. Also, a student isn’t expected to produce a solution to a problem or to answer a challenge in a finite number of ways.

Atentar contra la privacidad del estudiante, defender la personalización como forma de obtener datos personales... La tecnología en la educación aporta numerosos beneficios, pero también conlleva riesgos y miedos. Lo que más temen padres y maestros es que la industria sustituya la figura del profesor por la de una máquina que es mucho más barata. Sin embargo, la buena educación necesita la experiencia, sabiduría, juicio y sensibilidad de los buenos maestros.

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’?

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’? | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it
Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace. The only choice a student gets is what box to check on the screen and how quickly to move through the exercises. For many educators that’s not the true meaning of “personalized learning.”

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 2017 5:12 PM
"Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace."

How is that different than the traditional process of prescribed set of activities. The only difference is pacing, maybe? What is different is it is an facile and trite new expression that is easy to throw out there and impress people. It is part of a nonsensical neo-liberal agenda.

I subscribe to John Dewey, William Doll, and Ted Aoki and letting students have a voice in their learning in ways that allow them freedom to make choices and still follow the curriculum-as-plan.
Jerry Busone's curator insight, December 5, 2017 7:39 AM

Personalized learning is not learn at your pace and check the box when you are done. Thats control and compliance to learn something. Personalized learning misgiving the learner the  freedom to follow a meaningful line of inquiry, while building the skills to connect, challenge and analyze information and make their assumptions on best way to leverage those skills.

What is an Innovation Class…and Why Do You Need One?

What is an Innovation Class…and Why Do You Need One? | Mohammed Hassim Online Resources | Scoop.it
I hear it all the time: The world is changing, and schools need to change. Lots of us recognize that we should no longer be relying on the old model, where we just dump information into our students’ brains and they regurgitate it back. The world we live in today requires more of people: problem-solving skills, creativity, collaboration, the ability to innovate, iterate, and design solutions for problems that don’t even exist yet. The way we do school now just doesn’t prepare kids the way it should.

It’s a good message, a true message, but too often, that message leaves us hanging. We nod along, we agree that things need to be different, but then we go back to doing more or less what we’ve always done, because we aren’t exactly sure HOW to change school.
