Francia prohibirá los teléfonos móviles en las escuelas y los institutos

Francia prohibirá los teléfonos móviles en las escuelas y los institutos | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it

Francia ha decidido prohibir los teléfonos móviles tanto en las escuelas como en los institutos. Así lo ha anunciado este martes Jean-Michel Blanquer, ministro de Educación, quien también explicó que la medida entrará en funcionamiento “desde el comienzo de 2018”.

Estamos trabajando en este tema y puede tomar diferentes formas. Alguien puede necesitar los móviles para fines pedagógicos o para situaciones de emergencia. Por eso los teléfonos estarán guardados, explicó Blanquer. El ministro recordó que en algunas universidades “ya se está aplicando esta medida”.

Edumorfosis's curator insight, December 14, 2017 6:48 AM

Prohiban los dispositivos móviles en las aulas y sus estudiantes nunca aprenderán a ser Ciudadanos Digitales ni Globales. Que sus mentes solo se utilicen para memorizar los discursos de sus educadores sin relacionar los contenidos con su mundo real. Que sigan siendo esclavos de las redes sociales, sin conocer otras nuevas aplicaciones digitales que promueven el pensamiento cognitivo de orden superior. Cuando salgan al mundo laboral, no sepan aprender ni trabajar de manera remota. Nunca aprenderán cómo trabajar en entornos digitales: Chatbots, Blockchain, Fintech, IoT, Realidad Virtual, Realidad Aumentada, Co-Working Spaces y a ser parte de la Economía Gig. ¡Bravo, Francia!

Informe ODITE sobre Tendencias Educativas 2017 | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it

Presentamos el informe de ODITE, sobre tendencias en educación y tecnología. A continuación encontraremos, a modo de resumen, el abstract de las trece tendencias que hemos identificado para 2017 y al final del post el acceso al documento completo, cincuenta y siete páginas que recogen trece tendencias agrupadas en tres niveles de implantación de dichas tendencias:

Tendencias en práctica, encuadramos en esta categoría las que, desde el observatorio, consideramos que están consolidadas o se están consolidando ya en muchos centros educativos del país: Trabajo cooperativo, la Gamificación, el Trabajo en la nube y STEM / STEAMTendencias en desarrollo, donde encontraremos aquellas que sobre las que se están comenzando a desarrollar experiencias o están siendo utilizadas aunque sea de manera experimental e incipiente en algunos centros educativos y son llevadas a cabo por docentes entusiastas e innovadores que van contagiando su uso entre compañeros y compañeras:  “Maker movement", la Robótica, la Educación emocional, el "Visual Thinking" y la NeuroeducaciónTendencias en perspectiva, aquí agrupamos aquellas que van emergiendo en un horizonte no muy lejano. Apuntan a que se van a ir extendiendo sin prisa pero sin pausa, pero todavía no conocemos muchas experiencias, evidencias o usos en las aulas: Espacios Educativos, la Personalización del aprendizaje, la Realidad Virtual y Aumentada (le está costando más de lo previsto en otras ediciones) y el Mindfulness

Aprendizaje Continuo I: Dimensiones del conocimiento 

Aprendizaje Continuo I: Dimensiones del conocimiento  | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it

El aprendizaje, su continuidad y sus mecanismos van a ser un tema capital en los próximos años. Como sociedad, tenemos que conseguir individuos que accedan a conocimiento para poder abordar la complejidad en la que vivimos, sin prejuicios y sin miedos. Aprender cosas nuevas, olvidarse de las cosas que ya no sirven y buscar nuevos mecanismos será un tema capital para la educación, la empresa, la sociedad y los individuos. Hace tiempo empecé a esbozar algunas ideas (La brecha del conocimiento), o una auditoría del conocimiento. Le estoy dedicando tiempo a estudiar sobre ello y voy a intentar compartir algunas ideas con el ánimo de entenderlas y que sean útiles.

Muy bueno.

 

Fernando de la Rosa comparte con nosotros su acercamiento al aprendizaje continuo.

 

Y comienza con las dimensiones del conocimiento:

 

  • la ignorancia y aprendizaje -  lo que desconocemos y lo que nos falta por conocer
  • el grado de certeza del conocimiento - a veces estamos equivocados
  • la consolidación del conocimiento - el paso del conocimiento en curso a conocimiento consolidado
  • la temporalidad del conocimiento - porque el conocimiento caduca
  • la utilidad del conocimiento - enfoque utilitarista de la sociedad actual

[PDF] Instructional Design in Higher Education

[PDF] Instructional Design in Higher Education | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it

Learning — to some it is the sound of chalk on blackboards,  the search through stacks of scribbled notes, and backpacks full of heavy textbooks. For others with a less traditional lens, learning is the summoning of professors with a click of a mouse, assignments no longer living on paper, but in a cloud, and the ‘classroom’ being everywhere. Education has changed considerably in recent years and we don’t expect it to slow down anytime soon.


Because of the advancement of technology, institutions are able to reach more students than ever with the help of quality and accessible online courses. ‘eLearning’, ‘distance education’, ‘blended learning’, ‘online campuses,’ and other related programs have grown more prominent in higher education institutions. According to NCES data, there were 5.5 million students enrolled in distance education courses at degree-granting postsecondary institutions in fall of 2013.

There are many technologies flooding the market that help foster innovative teaching and learning. These tools, such as learning management systems, lecture capture systems, simulation creators, authoring, and video and audio tools, have flooded into the classrooms and lecture halls of higher education. However, the inference that these innovative tools aid learning should not be immediately assumed. With faculties’ full work load, learning and implementing new and often complex tools to improve their online pedagogy isn’t a priority. In fact, as the needs and tools of institutions have evolved, instructional designers have positioned themselves as pivotal players in the design and delivery of learning
experiences. Instructional designers exist to bridge the gap between faculty instruction and student online learning. But who, exactly, are instructional designers? What do they do? Where do they fit in higher education?

Visible Thinking

Visible Thinking | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it
Purpose and Goals
Visible Thinking is a flexible and systematic research-based approach to integrating the development of students' thinking with content learning across subject matters. An extensive and adaptable collection of practices, Visible Thinking has a double goal: on the one hand, to cultivate students' thinking skills and dispositions, and, on the other, to deepen content learning. By thinking dispositions, we mean curiosity, concern for truth and understanding, a creative mindset, not just being skilled but also alert to thinking and learning opportunities and eager to take them

Who is it for?
Visible Thinking is for teachers, school leaders and administrators in K - 12 schools who want to encourage the development of a culture of thinking in their classrooms and schools.

Key Features and Practices
At the core of Visible Thinking are practices that help make thinking visible: Thinking Routines loosely guide learners' thought processes and encourage active processing. They are short, easy-to-learn mini-strategies that extend and deepen students' thinking and become part of the fabric of everyday classroom life. Thinking Ideals are easily accessible concepts capturing naturally occurring goals, strivings or interests that often propel our thinking. Four Ideals -- Understanding, Truth, Fairness and Creativity -- are presented as modules on this site. There are associated routines for each ideal and within each module there are activities that help deepen students' concepts around the ideal.

A key feature of the Visible Thinking approach is the Teacher Study Group as described in the School-Wide Culture of Thinking section. In these groups teachers reflect on student work, or documentation, generated by students when using routines or investigating an ideal. Documentation such as lists, maps, charts, diagrams, and worksheets reveal learners' unfolding ideas as they think through an issue. In study groups teachers use the structured conversation of a protocol to look at and reflect on thinking present in student work.

La gran "mentira" sobre la educación

La gran "mentira" sobre la educación | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it
La gran "mentira" en la educación actual es que el enfrentamiento entre lo tradicional y lo innovador es totalmente falso y contraproducente. No se puede ser innovador sin conocer y respetar el saber educativo que ha permitido que generaciones enteras aprendan. A la vez que no se puede ser tan conservador como para pretender que no cambie nada.

Metacognition and Learning: Strategies for Instructional Design 

Metacognition and Learning: Strategies for Instructional Design  | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it

Do you know how to learn? Many people don’t. Specifically, they don’t know how to look inward to examine how they learn and to judge which methods are effective. That’s where metacognitive strategies come in. They are techniques that help people become more successful learners. Shouldn’t this be a crucial goal of instructional design? Improved metacognition can facilitate both formal and informal learning. It can improve the performance of new tasks on the job and help teams problem solve more effectively. But let’s start at the beginning. Here are some things learning professionals should know about metacognition.

[PDF] Should we welcome Robot Teachers?

[PDF] Should we welcome Robot Teachers? | Héctor Cortez | Scoop.it

Current uses of robots in classrooms are reviewed and used to characterise four scenarios: (s1) Robot as Classroom Teacher; (s2) Robot as Companion and Peer; (s3) Robot as Care-eliciting Companion; and (s4) Telepresence Robot Teacher. The main ethical concerns associated with robot teachers are identified as: privacy; attachment, deception, and loss of human contact; and control and accountability. These are discussed in terms of the four identified scenarios. It is argued that classroom robots are likely to impact children’s’ privacy, especially when they masquerade as their friends and companions, when sensors are used to measure children’s responses, and when records are kept. Social robots designed to appear as if they understand and care for humans necessarily involve some deception (itself a complex notion), and could increase the risk of reduced human contact. Children could form attachments to robot companions (s2 and s3), or robot teachers (s1) and this could have a deleterious effect on their social development. There are also concerns about the ability, and use of robots to control or make decisions about children’s behaviour in the classroom. It is concluded that there are good reasons not to welcome fully fledged robot teachers (s1), and that robot companions (s2 and 3) should be given a cautious welcome at best. The limited circumstances in which robots could be used in the classroom to improve the human condition by offering otherwise unavailable educational experiences are discussed.
