How do educators get to know what they don’t know?

How do educators get to know what they don’t know? | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

If you don’t know about something, how would you know to seek PD in that area? This is especially true of learning with technology. I have a master’s degree in educational technology. The fact is that not any of the applications or computers that I learned on, as well as the methodology in the use of those components, exists today. Very little of that degree would be relevant, if I did not continue to learn, adapt and progress with what I know. The same holds true with any degree in any profession.

If you make a mistake, one of your tools fails, or a student says you’re not Snapchatting correctly in front of the whole class, set your ego aside, learn from that moment, and then go back to teaching those students what they need to know. Teaching on the bleeding edge of technology is just that: teaching on the edge. You’re bound to wobble a little.

Blogging About The Web 2.0 Connected Classroom: Why All Educators Need SAMR And TPACK | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
On its surface technology can make learning more fun and engaging. Allowing students to create podcasts or work on websites, write blog posts or use 3-D printers certainly engages students and shows them what is possible. However, what is lacking from many of the discussions is what pedagogical impacts the use of technology can have on learning. Moreover, if there isn’t a clear understanding of what types of activities promote the most student gains, then the use of technology is just flashy and in some cases, makes learning less effective.

Not much to argue with.

10 Characteristics of Professional Learning that Inspires Learner-Centered Innovation – | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

By maximizing the multiple and diverse resources available, we can rethink the traditional model of professional learning to chart unique pathways and reach desired goals. Valuing the differences in teachers and immersing them in learner-centered experiences in professional learning is an essential lever that will allow educators to design similar learning experiences for the students they teach.

106 Experts Share Their Thoughts on the Future of Education, Part 1: PreK-12 | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

The future of education is digital. We live in an increasingly digital world, where technology is a part of our lives in so many ways. Now more than ever, it is crucial that we incorporate digital technology into education. To prepare students for higher education and future jobs, we must ensure that they are familiar with technology.

Chong Jiaxuan's comment, March 11, 10:42 AM
The experts mentioned in the articles all give opinions that classrooms will become more digitalised. This is not a doubt as at a young age of 2-3 years old, children are exposed to many forms of technology, like mobile phones, laptops and computers. They grow up accustomed to such items and will therefore use these technologies intensely as they enter school. One expert says that lectures in homogeneous classrooms will be a thing of the past because students now have access to knowledge at their fingertips, and thus teachers need to teach soft skills such as collaboration and teamwork to the students. I agree with this because as children grow up in a digitalised age, they lose the chance to interact with other children because their eyes are glued to their screens. The children lose their abilities to socialise, and thus schools will come into play.

Implications Of Learning Theories On Instructional Design

Implications Of Learning Theories On Instructional Design | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
The world of Instructional Design has evolved over the years. Influences from various learning theory movements like behaviorism, cognitivism, and social learning have constructed a foundation which acts as pillars of successful approaches. While each theory includes specific focal points with regards to how learning occurs—either by behavioral response or knowledge acquisition—they have contributed unique perspectives on learning as a whole and are responsible for how the field of Instructional Design has changed over time.
