Ed tech trends to watch out for in 2017 | Learning | Scoop.it
The new year has only just started and headlines are already awash with the latest news and rumours of how technology will change our lives in 2017.

One sector set to undergo vast change in the near future is education, with artificial intelligence and virtual reality coming closer to mass market breakthrough, and the continuing evolution of learning resources to online and ‘mobile first’ platforms.

But what does the immediate future hold for education technology, and what are we most likely to see make a breakthrough in the coming 12 months?

it’s not a skills gap | Learning | Scoop.it
"Tools and skills are easy-to-fill buckets, but meta-competencies of learning to learn and working in digital networks take significant time, effort, and support to fill. A long-term strategy to support these meta-competencies is lacking in many organizations today. Everyone wants a quick fix. Projects are designed around clear short-term deliverables. Few measure competencies for the long term."

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten

The Management Thinker We Should Never Have Forgotten | Learning | Scoop.it

W. Edwards Deming believed that we can improve worker performance only when we improve the entire system they work within. And he believed that managers wrongly apply incentive pay plans, forced rankings, and all sorts of carrots and sticks to create the illusionof control without solving root performance problems.

The only method of instruction that beat out YouTube? Teachers.

Zachary R. Wood: Why it's worth listening to people you disagree with | TED Talk | Learning | Scoop.it
We get stronger, not weaker, by engaging with ideas and people we disagree with, says Zachary R. Wood. In an important talk about finding common ground, Wood makes the case that we can build empathy and gain understanding by engaging tactfully and thoughtfully with controversial ideas and unfamiliar perspectives. "Tuning out opposing viewpoints doesn't make them go away," Wood says. "To achieve progress in the face of adversity, we need a genuine commitment to gaining a deeper understanding of humanity."

Do Quizzes Improve Student Learning? A Look at the Evidence

Do Quizzes Improve Student Learning? A Look at the Evidence | Learning | Scoop.it
Recently I’ve been trying to locate the evidence that supports quizzing, wondering if it merits the evidence-based label. Tracking down this evidence in our discipline-based research is challenging because although quizzing has been studied across our disciplines, it’s not easily searchable. My collection of studies is good, but I know it’s not complete. As you might suspect, the results are mixed; they are more positive than negative, but still, a significant number of researchers don’t find that quizzes affect learning outcomes.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, February 1, 2017 1:34 PM

It's easy to create time saving quizzes in the online teaching environment.  Quizzes may help you check for understanding.  Quizzes may provide a 'guide' to the reading that keeps students accountable.

 

However,  do quizzes really improve student learning?

 

This article from Maryellen Weimer, PhD will help you understand the question.

From the article: "In order to teach efficiently, experts try to cut right to the chase. They teach the Abstract Model. Why? Because, they’re trying to save you all the hassle of learning it, “The Hard Way”. The problem is ... without Concrete experiences and many of them, it’s very difficult to understand the model."
