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

The Future of Education is Unstructured Learning, and Here's Why | Museums, innovation and emerging technologies | 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.

 

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.

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)

Jerry Busone's curator insight, January 5, 8:14 AM

Unstructured learning brings real to your workshops and classroom. Its not YOU the teacher doing all the presenting but its about guiding and facilitating people through real world problems and allowing them to innovate,apply principles ,models  and come to their own conclusions. Just like there are many ways to lead and sell there are many ways to learn ...

Critical thinking instruction in humanities reduces belief in pseudoscience

Critical thinking instruction in humanities reduces belief in pseudoscience | Museums, innovation and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
A recent study by North Carolina State University researchers finds that teaching critical thinking skills in a humanities course significantly reduces student beliefs in "pseudoscience" that is unsupported by facts.

"Given the national discussion of 'fake news,' it's clear that critical thinking - and classes that teach critical thinking - are more important than ever," says Anne McLaughlin, an associate professor of psychology at NC State and co-author of a paper describing the work.

Brian Steffens's curator insight, January 8, 12:53 PM

If you read just one item today, make it this one. Prioritize thus: 1. User 2. Business 3. Team 4 Self. A handful of years ago I asked several young entrepreneurs at SXSW about their priorities. Top response: "I wake up every morning with a relentless focus on the user experience." I've been sharing that mantra ever since. If you don't have users, you don't have a business. Countless research teams have determined that teams usually produce stronger results than lone innovators.

Innovation is Overrated: How Execution Can Make Up For an Average Idea

Innovation is Overrated: How Execution Can Make Up For an Average Idea | Museums, innovation and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
The tech media is obsessed with innovation. Front pages of sites like The Verge, Wired, or Fast Company tell us very clearly that innovation is all about cool, new ideas. Pragmatic iteration is overlooked as the boring rehashing of old things, while exciting ‘moonshots’ and 10X leaps are fetishised. However, the opposite is often true: the most successful companies in the world focus on nailing iterative execution, not constant reinvention.
