Personalized Learning, Flipped Classrooms, Video Watching: Last Gasps of the Old Education

Personalized Learning, Flipped Classrooms, Video Watching: Last Gasps of the Old Education | Technology & education | Scoop.it
The dominant educational model in the United States is still "education as acquiring stuff." Even when modern technologies are used to support this model, the hordes of unemployed and underemployed students — OUR children — are proof that this model is broken and ineffective.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 4, 2014 2:51 AM

" (...) modern technologies are used in service of "education as acquiring stuff." 



  • Online/blended learning employs, for example, a curriculum developed by e2020 which has been rebranded as Edgenuity. Students watch video lectures, take multiple choice tests, and after correctly answering seven of 10 multiple choice questions that prove mastery, move on to watch more video lectures.
  • Amplify Inc., using tablets instead of desktops, and labeling their pedagogy "personalized learning" presents information to a student, tests the student's acquisition of that information, and presents new information based on the student's performance, i.e., adaptive instruction.
  • Flipped classrooms have learners watch video lectures at home instead of listening to the lectures at school.
  • Instead of amateur videos made by classroom teachers, students are being sent to the Khan Academy where the hedge-fund analyst S. Khan has posted bunches of videos on core content — with the math ones aligned squarely to the Common Core State Standards.

(...)


"Social learning, inquiry learning, just-in-time learning, and yes, learning-by-doing, will become the dominant pedagogies. The focus must be on process, must be on skills such as the 4Cs (Critical thinking, Communication, Collaboration, Creativity). Why? Because the kids today need to be prepared to move from job to job — to jobs that haven’t been invented yet."

Part Sixty-Six Of The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | Technology & education | Scoop.it

Here’s the latest installment in my series on The Best Ways To Create Online Content Easily & Quickly. As you may remember, in order to make it on this list, the web tool has to:

* be easily accessible to English Language Learners and/or non-tech savvy computer users.

* allow people to create engaging content within minutes.

* host the user’s creation on the site itself indefinitely, and allow a direct link to be able to be posted on a student or teacher’s website/blog to it (or let it be embedded).

* provide some language-learning opportunity (for example, students can write about their creations).

* not require any registration.

There are those who still fear the internet and its power to erode local cultural morals. There are those who still add further brick walls to their already existing technical constraints in classrooms by burying any possible digital engagement under dull carpets of excuses.
