​Edtech Is Trapped in Ben Bloom’s Basement | EdSurge News | Education | Scoop.it
Rather than build new opportunities for students to move beyond the most basic building blocks of knowledge, much of Silicon Valley has been content to recreate education’s problematic status quo inside the four corners of a Chromebook, and then have the gall to call that innovation.

What is teaching? A definition and discussion

What is teaching? A definition and discussion | Education | Scoop.it
In this piece Mark K Smith explores the nature of teaching – those moments or sessions where we make specific interventions to help people learn particular things. He sets this within a discussion of pedagogy and didactics and demonstrates that we need to unhook consideration of the process of teaching from the role of ‘teacher’ in schools.

Write your reflection HERE!
Daniela Montoya's curator insight, February 28, 5:52 PM
I find this article of special relevance to all those involved in a teaching program. Understanding the very meaning of the concept “teaching” will influence the teaching practice as Paul Hirst (1975), cited in the article, states: ‘being clear about what teaching is matters vitally because how teachers understand teaching very much affects what they actually do in the classroom’.

With the purpose of helping the reader construct the definition of “teaching”, the author addresses the term from two different approaches: Transmitting knowledge or learning things, and observing and working on students’ needs, feelings, and experiences. Moreover, he covers the concept of pedagogy, didactic, scaffolding, and teacher-centered method and student-centered method.

Why Makerspaces Are the Key to Innovation

Why Makerspaces Are the Key to Innovation | Education | Scoop.it

In Makerspaces students are given opportunities to work with technology, bring ideas to life, interact with peers and educators in new ways, and learn to problem solve, as well as, providing an environment in which they can make mistakes and learn from them. With all of the opportunities for learning that they offer, makerspaces may hold the key to unlocking the potential for innovation in our students and our economy.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, February 1, 4:57 PM

"The study also compared the skills needed today to those from 1980 and found that overall there has been a 68% increase in the amount of education and training necessary to succeed in the workforce. With the market’s increased demand for talented workers who are skilled in technology and communication, the opportunities that makerspaces generate for learning many of these skills are more important than ever before."

7 skills your child needs to survive the changing world of work | #ModernEDU #ModernLEARNing

7 skills your child needs to survive the changing world of work | #ModernEDU #ModernLEARNing | Education | Scoop.it

Education may be the passport to the future, but for all the good teaching out there, it would seem that schools are failing to impart some of the most important life skills, according to one educational expert.

Dr. Tony Wagner, co-director of Harvard's Change Leadership Group, argues that today’s school children are facing a “global achievement gap”, which is the gap between what even the best schools are teaching and the skills young people need to learn.

This has been exacerbated by two colliding trends: firstly, the global shift from an industrial economy to a knowledge economy, and secondly, the way in which today’s school children – brought up with the internet – are motivated to learn.

In his book The Global Achievement Gap, Wagner identifies seven core competencies every child needs in order to survive in the coming world of work.

1. Critical thinking and problem-solving

 

2. Collaboration across networks and leading by influence

 

3. Agility and adaptability

 

4. Initiative and entrepreneurialism

 

5. Effective oral and written communication

 

6. Accessing and analysing information

 

7. Curiosity and imagination

How Blended Learning Today Is Different In A Hyperconnected World

How Blended Learning Today Is Different In A Hyperconnected World | Education | Scoop.it

With access to the world’s information, industry experts, and instant connection to professionals inside our organizations and around the world, learning can happen continuously, on-demand, and in the moments that are most important to us. For these reasons, it’s important to reframe what blended learning today means. No longer does it mean supplementing formal learning events with additional materials, before and after a program. The whole thing has been flipped and our role, as L&D and the purveyors of formal learning, has become supplementary. So, how do we refocus? And how do we add value when our interventions are now periphery experiences in the context of employee development and performance?

Applying Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to the Use of Educational Technology

Applying Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to the Use of Educational Technology | Education | Scoop.it

Putting the technology into the hands of students and helping them to understand how to use it in a way that leads to their own self-actualisation can also be a perfectly legitimate goal in itself. If we do this though, we should be sure that the technology we teach students about has genuine functionality for them outside of the classroom and measuring this against Maslow’s hierarchy is a good way to do this.

Learning doesn't have to be a "loner" experience.


Russian psychologist Lev Vygotsky suggested that knowledge is constructed through our interactions with others.
MOOCs (Massive Open Online Learning) leverage our inherent social needs by bringing people together to learn the same material in a virtual group. Students can express what they're feeling and experiencing with others in a shared space, making the learning journey more enjoyable and less daunting.

 

As people gain confidence, they often enjoy friendly competition with fellow learners to push themselves to compete exercises and assignments. Recognition is part of our need for building self-esteem—and some courses have gamification built in to reward student accomplishments and community helpfulness.
