Everyday Workplace Learning: A quick primer | LEARNing To LEARN | ICT | eSkills | Higher Education And the New World of Compliance | Scoop.it

Everyday learning is the learning that takes place everyday as individuals do their jobs – individually or working with their internal colleagues, as well as connecting with others in (online) professional networks and channels. It’s about continuously acquiring small pieces of information or skills (often unconsciously) that over time build up into a large body of knowledge or experience, which means an individual becomes proficient in their job and knowledgeable about their industry or profession.

In other words, as the diagram to the left shows, everyday learning happens:

as part of daily working – from a variety of everyday experiences at workas a personal daily learning activity – in whatever way(s) best suits the individual concerned

Heutagogy Explained for Teachers (and Tools That Support It) | LEARNing To LEARN

Heutagogy Explained for Teachers (and Tools That Support It) | LEARNing To LEARN | Higher Education And the New World of Compliance | Scoop.it
October 20, 2015
Heutagogy is a learning and teaching  approach that is primarily self-directed or self-determined. Unlike the traditional pedagogic paradigm where learning is administered in a controlled environment under the auspices of a ‘knowledge expert’ (teacher) and where learners agency is defined in the logic of conformity and passive adhesiveness to pre-defined instructional guidelines, a heutagogic pedagogy is more learner entered. It is bent on developing learners autonomy and enabling them to take control of their own learning. At its core is the individual empowerment through equipping learners with a variety of skills and competencies to help them with their self-formation.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 10:02 AM

I chose this article because I have not sensed the endorsement of self-directed learning that I experienced, say 10 years ago. However, the author describes different tech tools that support the idea of self-directed learning. Certainly, social media and the availability of knowledge and resources that support it (animations, tutorials, videos) make self-directed learning a more realistic venture.

Techniques for Unleashing Student Work from Learning Management Systems | Life Long LEARNing | Higher Education And the New World of Compliance | Scoop.it
In my mind, this is exactly what the future of lifelong learning looks like. We will be learning constantly throughout our careers as workers and citizens, and once young people graduate from formal institutions, much of that learning will be self-directed and unstructured. What I hope that students could take away from my Connected Course were the skill sets to participate in that kind of learning out on the open Web, and the belief that lifelong learning can be most powerful when we intentionally build networks of people to learn with us.

On the first day of my course, I tell students that they have three responsibilities: to advance their own learning, to advance the learning of their classmates and to advance the learning of their wider communities. If they are successful as students, they’ll benefit not only themselves, but their classmates and colleagues beyond.

New Neurons in Adult Brains Remodel Memory

New Neurons in Adult Brains Remodel Memory | Higher Education And the New World of Compliance | Scoop.it
The brain is extremely dynamic, building and pruning connections in milliseconds with many different types of neuroplasticity simultaneously arising in large circuits all over the brain. The holy grail of neuroplasticity has been the creation of new brain cells in adults. Research looking for one cell in a region of the brain is much more difficult than a needle in a haystack. Despite, overwhelming odds, study shows new neurons arising in at least three, and possibly more, places in the adult brain—both humans and other animals.

Recent research shows that new neurons at least in the critical memory center of the hippocampus, are critical to learning and memory and rapidly become part of existing circuits. In fact, they remodel the circuit to take in new material in new ways. A previous post described that more than a thousand different types of neurons exist. Neurogenesis research shows that these new adult born neurons may be completely new types of cells with increased excitability, more widespread connections, a new window of opportunity, and increased neuroplasticity. New neurons in adult brains remodel memory circuits to make information more specific.
