Keeping Up with… Digital Pedagogy

Keeping Up with… Digital Pedagogy | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it
Digital pedagogy focuses specifically on the use of technology to break down learning barriers and enhance students’ learning experiences. By definition, its existence dates back to the earliest use of digital tools in classrooms -- however, larger awareness of the need for digital pedagogy has emerged only in the last decade or so, in recognition of the changing relationship between students and computers, handheld devices, social media, and more.

Great reading

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, November 20, 2017 5:10 PM

"The National Academy of Science suggests it might be unethical to continue to use the traditional lecture approach when we have growing robust evidence from many different studies that other methods are far more effective.

As student loan debt surpasses credit card debt to leave many graduates unhappy, educational institutions have a moral obligation to provide students with a learning experience that gives them their money’s worth. Applying the latest findings from neuroscience into their classrooms is one way to do so." (By Raya Bidshahri - Oct 24, 2017)

Lisa Marie Blaschke's curator insight, November 21, 2017 2:33 AM
Lot of lots of good insights and emerging ideas here: role of neuroeducation, importance of passion-based learning, and learner-controlled learning. Also: “teaching young minds about neuroscience and neuroplasticity alone can have a positive impact on their learning” #heutagogy
