Future Models of Learning - Debate

Future Models of Learning - Debate | Technology in ELT | Scoop.it

Does new technology conflict with or complement established teaching and learning? What is the impact on the teaching profession as we have traditionally known it? Will the power of the internet, with new innovations such as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), create an unstoppable ‘avalanche’ of education reform, or are these reforms a false revolution? Can the value of face-to-face quality learning and student-teacher relationships ever really be questioned, at any level of education? Will the class room, lecture theatre, and traditional notion of education space – schools and universities – be usurped by a screen, online and distance learning, or alternative spaces such as the workplace, home, or concert-hall?

The discussion is more than a hour so make sure you're comfortable before you start viewing.

It should complement. Art and the French language provide a word for what should happen: bricolage. Bricolage is the blending of two materials, in this case traditional and new pedagogy, in ways that might infuse them. A philosophical approach might to use Gadamer and Vico to discuss sensus communis which is the common sense of a community based on wisdom and creativity.

 

The format is interesting as it is similar to a Ethnograhic Futures Research format gone viral.

Coding in the Classroom: Here to Stay - Getting Smart

Coding in the Classroom: Here to Stay - Getting Smart | Technology in ELT | Scoop.it
The value of computer programming has been rising exponentially for decades. To the point where now coding has gained traction in mainstream media. TV shows like CBS’s The Big Bang Theory or HBO’s Silicon Valley are good indicators of computer science careers are taking center stage. The domino effect created by the demand for amazing technology is likewise leading to a demand for skilled workers to engineer and program. Whether training comes through a high school certificate program, or a degree in computer science, the need for project-ready coders is only increasing. The bottom-line: All schools at all levels are kicking coding into overdrive.
