Gary Harwell's curator insight, January 6, 2014 12:08 AM

Competency based education is a great idea but can it be used in a traditional classroom setting?

R Kay Richardson's curator insight, January 10, 2014 7:46 AM

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn?

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn? | iEduc | Scoop.it

Are mistakes a part of the learning process? If they are, what does this say about our current education system? This post explores these ideas, asking the following questions and following each with a number of responses that explores each question in greater detail. The first section has two questions:

* Why are mistakes important to achieve engagement and learning?

* Why do we avoid mistakes in our current model?

The second section, Turning Mistakes into Learning Opportunities asks one question:

* How can we use learning errors to our advantage?

At the beginning of this post the author speaks of James Joyce, and also does so at the end where she states (referring to Joyce) "a true genius sees all learning as an opportunity to improve and discover. Errors are taken at will. In making mistakes, we can reach new heights and find our true genius." Will schools move in this direction?

Survey of 15,000 Quebec university students shows they’re “old school” when it comes to teaching technology.

The study was conducted by Dr. Venkatesh in partnership with Magda Fusaro, a professor in the department of management and technology at Université du Québec à Montréal. Together, they conducted a pilot project at UQAM before rolling the survey out in 2011 to a dozen universities across the province, to which 15,000 undergraduate students and more than 2,500 instructors responded (for response rates of 10 percent and 20 percent respectively).
