Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Flipped Classroom

Top Ed-Tech Trends of 2012: The Flipped Classroom | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

As I noted above, the idea of the “flipped classroom” wasn’t new to 2012. Nor was it something devised by Khan Academy or TED. Video-taped lectures assigned as homework can be traced back to Colorado math teacher Karl Fisch who had his work popularized in turn by a story in 2010 by Daniel Pink who called the practice “flip thinking” or the “Fisch flip.” But well before that, many other educators were thinking about ways they could “flip” or reverse instruction: chemistry teachers Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams recorded their lessons circa 2007. And in the 1990s, let’s not forget, Harvard professor Eric Mazur pioneered the idea of peer instruction in order to alter his own teaching practices away from heavy reliance on lecturing.

Digital Tools for Teachers - Trainers' Edition by Nik Peachey on iBooks | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

In this book the first four chapters are provided as a guide for teachers who want to use the book for teacher training and development.
Using the tools, tips and activities provided in these first chapters a teacher with some basic experience of using technology in the classroom should be able to create motivating hands-on edtech training for their peers or for pre-service trainee teachers.

Nik Peachey's insight:

The new edition is now available as an iBook and includes chapters on e-safety, conceptual models for integrating technology as well as chapters on VR and gamification.

4 Reasons why teaching students to use technology in the classroom is a no-brainer | PeacheyPublications.com

4 Reasons why teaching students to use technology in the classroom is a no-brainer | PeacheyPublications.com | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
Both sides in this debate regularly site research or the lack of it to enforce their arguments that technology should or shouldn’t be used, but much of this research is either very small scale and carried out within a very limited context or looks at how technology can be overlaid onto an antiquated approach to transmission teaching that itself has no foundation in research and was only used in the absence of any other approach.

So, I feel like common sense should be our guide and here are four reasons why teaching students how to use technology should be a no-brainer.

A bit of a rant.

Artificial Intelligence Is Around the Corner. Educators Should Take Note

Artificial Intelligence Is Around the Corner. Educators Should Take Note | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
Artificial intelligence itself presents K-12 educators, managers of educational institutions, and education policymakers with a range of complex and often paradoxical problems. In the classroom, the questions will be challenging: What must curricula contain to educate students for AI-related work? How can they be taught the social and political implications of a world deeply penetrated by artificial minds?
Nik Peachey's insight:

A really interesting look at the potetial impact of AI in education.

It’s terribly confusing, but perhaps no coincidence, that three of the world’s most prominent consumer technology companies—Apple, Google, Microsoft—each boast a “Classroom” tool aimed at K-12 educators and students. After all, what better way to secure a foothold in the market than impressing one’s brand to future consumers at a young age?

I remember when Bill Gates lost a law suit. His answer to it was to give computers to schools instead of paying a cash fine if I remember correctly. At the time Mac was king of schools...after that mac was never king again in schools. Gates is also behind to push to divert public tax dollars to privatize education. The Walton family also is seeking to turn education into venture investment profits.

Indignant Outrage and the Growing Mistrust of Technology

Indignant Outrage and the Growing Mistrust of Technology | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
This is as far from student or teacher agency as one can get, but we can’t blame the professor for the sad reality of how most education continues to be measured and celebrated today. If learning is reduced to this, then it is true to say that the computational power of digital technology is being wasted on learners and that they will be bored by lectures.
Nik Peachey's insight:

I constantly feel that attempts to measure the impact of technology in education are done in a comparable way to taking a car engine, putting it in place of the horse and expecting it to do a better job of pulling the cart.

This paradigm is a useful one for education because it can help to focus us on what education is really for, helping students to realise their own potential and lead fulfilling lives, rather than achieving what can be rather abstract syllabus goals.

The relevance to educational technology is that it can help us decide which tools we choose to use to with our students and how we enable our students to use these tools.

Customers Won’t Pay as Much for Digital Goods — and Research Explains Why

Customers Won’t Pay as Much for Digital Goods — and Research Explains Why | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
We think that the difference in ownership that people feel for digital and physical goods may be due to a weaker sense of control over digital objects. People feel ownership for a good to the extent that they can touch, hold, and control it. Indeed, we found that people with little need to feel in control over their environment reported no preference for physical relative to digital goods, whereas people with strong need to feel in control reported a substantial preference for physical relative to digital goods.

Ultimately, the most powerful creative element in the classroom is the teacher. You have the power to inspire students to take creative risks by modeling the process and being open and even vulnerable about your journey. You also have the power to create epic learning experiences that encourage students to take creative risks. So, in 2018, I would encourage you to choose one big creative risk and make it happen.

5 Risks Posed by the Increasing Misuse of Technology in Schools

5 Risks Posed by the Increasing Misuse of Technology in Schools | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
The greatest fear of parents and teachers is that the tech industry wants to replace teachers with computers. They fear that the business leaders want to cut costs by replacing expensive humans with inexpensive machines, that never require health care or a pension. They believe that education requires human interaction. They prefer experience, wisdom, judgment, sensibility, sensitivity and compassion in the classroom to the cold, static excellence of a machine.

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it
Unstructured learning is an authentic real-world way of learning. That’s because the real world itself doesn’t have neat compartments or set disciplines for success. It demands adaptability, patience, and a willingness to learn and to use what is learned in the moment. Most of all, it requires us to take full responsibility for what we learn.
Nik Peachey's insight:

So what do you think?

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, December 26, 2017 8:36 AM

“El aprendizaje no estructurado ocurre cuando dejamos que los estudiantes jueguen sin una guía para que puedan sacar conclusiones por sí mismos. Sin embargo, todavía este tipo de aprendizaje requiere del apoyo del maestro, particularmente en las primeras etapas del proceso. Esto sucede en forma de diseño de escenarios, desarrollo de plantillas, formulación de preguntas orientadoras, etc. Al final, sin embargo, todos estos métodos están diseñados para apoyar y guiar a los estudiantes mientras caminan felices a través de lo desconocido”. (Global Digital Citizen Foundation, 2017)

Gust MEES's curator insight, January 4, 8:57 AM

It’s time to play and to let go of rigid teaching in favour of unstructured learning. For this to happen, teachers have to foster trust in their students. They have to be willing to take a step back and put a little slack on the reins of traditional pedagogy. In short, we need to let things get a little messy. Ease into it—it’s a bold step and it will transform everything.
