Today, Kids Need To Learn More Than Facts, But To Solve Problems And Innovate

Today, Kids Need To Learn More Than Facts, But To Solve Problems And Innovate | Technology | Scoop.it

Today, however, teenagers carry far more information and computing power in their pockets than would ever fit in their heads. So the ability to retain knowledge and manipulate numbers with facility has become, to a large extent, outdated skills. So kids today need to learn how to understand systems and solve problems.

Traditionally, we went to school to attain knowledge. The smart kids knew that Columbus discovered America in 1492 and that the square root of 64 is eight. They studied diligently at home so that when the teacher asked a question they could shoot their hand up and be praised for their good work.

 

Today, however, teenagers carry far more information and computing power in their pockets than would ever fit in their heads. So the ability to retain knowledge and manipulate numbers with facility has become, to a large extent, outdated skills. So kids today need to learn how to understand systems and solve problems.

 

Fortunately, there are an increasing number of programs that are designed to do just that. At the college level, programs like Stanford's d.school teach design thinking and entrepreneurship classes have become standard in business school curriculums. More recently, a wide variety of secondary school level programs have begun to take hold and are giving students a leg up.

Toch dient er altijd een basis aan begrippen (woordenschat) kennis geleerd te worden alvorens überhaupt de berg aan informatie beklommen of uitgespit kan worden.Klassiek onderwijs blijft nodig.

You know what caught my eye right away? That this artical was originally published in March 2013 - yep, almost 4 years ago and yet aren't we still struggling to get a handle on Education 2.0? Don't we all have teachers who are still treading very lightly into educational technology? Don't we still have parents (and students, I might add) who still believe we are their parenting relief for the day? Now we're talking about personalizing the learning! Libraries and librarians have a real opportunity here. We can not only help teachers get to a higher state of proficiency with transformative uses of technology but we can also model the teacher-as-learner while supporting the creation of knowledge (not just its consumption). This is well worth your time to read and to figure out how you can be the beacon of hope and agents of change in YOUR school!

What Kind Of World Are We Preparing Students For? The Future Isn't Digital & Technology Is Just A Tool

In my humble opinion, this is a must-read for librarians, instructional technology teachers, and anyone else heavily invested in edtech. This is my take-away from this article: "Students need to be prepared for the real word–the one that they live in each day and will build lives and careers in. The digital world has become a part of the real world, but has not replaced it. The future isn’t digital, it’s real and tangible and all around us, and digital technology is only a part of that whole. Students need to be prepared to make good choices and have built the skills that they need to succeed outside of computer-generated content."
Well said, indeed.

Aurasma provides an image-recognition software for creating and sharing augmented reality experiences. Users pan with their mobile device cameras to scan images in their physical environment to trigger a separate image or video to play on their screens.

This is a great Idea of lesson plan. You can integrate productive skill with a little of exploration and the use of technology. it is new and fun way for the students to write. 
Coconut Curator's curator insight, April 30, 2017 10:44 AM
Augmented reality without all the fancy hardware. Locations can be tagged as well as historical events and other data. There are many uses for Aurasma in primary and secondary schools and it would be a wonderful tool to help make museum exhibitions come to life.

This is part 1 of a planned series on STEM, STEAM, and Makers. There is a promised "over 100 resources" that will be explained and revealed over the course of this series. Media Specialists will find it well worth the time to read this series and be prepared to support these efforts. There is an intimate connection that can be made between PBL and Inquiry Based Learning that media specialists' can lead. There is an option to subscribe to the posts through RSS and it would be a good idea to sign up. What new ideas will YOU get from this series?

Not specific to gifted education, but I am a big fan and practitioner of PBLs - 2nd year school counseling students you will see this in the spring of 2017!
