Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 17, 2017 12:35 AM
10 highlights capture the big picture themes of educational change that underpin the 18 topics:

1 Advancing progressive learning approaches requires cultural transformation.
2 Real-world skills are needed to bolster employability and workplace development.
3 Collaboration is key for scaling effective solutions.
4 Despite the proliferation of technology and online learning materials, access is still unequal.
5 Processes for assessing nuanced skills at a personal level are needed
6 Fluency in the digital realm is more than just understanding how to use technology.
7 Online, mobile, and blended learning are foregone conclusions. 
8 Learning ecosystems must be agile enough to support the practices of the future.
9 Higher education is an incubator for developing more intuitive computers.
10 Lifelong learning is the lifeblood of higher education

A Case For Flipping Learning—Without Videos 

"When professor Lorena Barba talks to other educators about flipping their classrooms, the approach she hears is often similar. Faculty assign homework to expose students to a new concept before they arrive to class, and use class time to ask questions and do more-active learning."

Gabrielle Edwards's comment, May 27, 11:15 PM
Content based curriculum will always be a part of education that needs to change in order to reflect the ideology of a changing world. Flipping the classroom is an approach many teachers in many institutions are experimenting with, yet it seems that videos have indeed become a crutch for teachers attempting this strategy. In subjects of humanities, this seems to be achieved readily enough, as students can read and work with material prior to class discussion. STEM subjects however become more difficult to deal with. An approach labeled as "Blended Learning" promotes an approach that requires both technology based learning as well as face-time with educators. Is this reasonable to expect? That teachers are capable of balancing the introduction of technology in their classrooms with support and engagement? Perhaps it comes down to pre-service training available to teachers, as they are essentially students learning an unfamiliar platform. Active learning needs to be achieved by teachers first, in order to then be effectively taught to their students.

[Podcast] Disrupting Education, for the Augmented Age

[Podcast] Disrupting Education, for the Augmented Age | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it

At a time when AI and machine learning stand poised to replace many rote human tasks, are schools and colleges preparing the workers of tomorrow? And are business leaders creating the enterprise cultures that will support continuous learning in a climate of constant disruption?

In this podcast, Heather McGowan, a thought leader at the intersection of education, business, and technology, chats with Connected Futures executive editor Kevin Delaney. About how the very foundations of learning need to be disrupted, for what she calls the Augmented Age – a time when human ingenuity, creativity and empathy will separate us from the machines.

Invisible learning: The (r)evolution outside of the classroom - Education Futures | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it
Learning becomes invisible when we empower each of us to learn our own way. Removing structures of control opens possibilities. The end outcomes or goals of an experience are neither dictated nor determined from the start, but instead emerge as learning develops. Such experiences include free play, self-organized learning communities, authentic problem-based learning, and experimentation to acquire new knowledge.

Integrating MOOCs in traditionally taught courses: achieving learning outcomes with blended learning 

Integrating MOOCs in traditionally taught courses: achieving learning outcomes with blended learning  | Training and Assessment Innovation | Scoop.it

"It has been several years since Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC) have entered the higher education environment and many forms have emerged from this new way of acquiring knowledge. Teachers have been incorporating MOOCs with more or less success in a traditional classroom setting to support various learning preferences, introduce this new way of learning to students, and to make learning available to those who might not be able to follow traditional instructions. This paper researches a blended learning model where a MOOC has been integrated in a traditional classroom."

(34) Teaching art or teaching to think like an artist? | Cindy Foley | TEDxColumbus - YouTube

What is the purpose and value of Art education in the 21st Century? Foley makes the case the Art’s critical value is to develop learners that think like Artists which means learners who are creative, curious, that seek questions, develop ideas, and play. For that to happen society will need to stop the pervasive, problematic and cliché messaging that implies that creativity is somehow defined as artistic skill. This shift in perception will give educators the courage to teach for creativity, by focusing on three critical habits that artist employ, 1. Comfort with Ambiguity, 2. Idea Generation, and 3. Transdisciplinary Research. This change can make way for Center’s for Creativity in our schools and museums where ideas are king and curiosity reigns.

Cindy Meyers Foley is the Executive Assistant Director and Director of Learning and Experience at the Columbus Museum of Art. Foley worked to reimagine the CMA as a 21st century institution that is transformative, active, and participatory. An institution that impacts the health and growth of the community by cultivating, celebrating and championing creativity. Foley envisioned and led the charge to open the 18,000 sq. ft. Center for Creativity in 2011. In 2013, the museum received the National Medal for Museums in recognition of this work. Foley guest edited and wrote chapters for Intentionality and the Twenty-First-Century Museum, for the summer 2014 Journal of Museum Education.

In 2012, Foley received the Greater Columbus Arts Council Community Arts Partnership award for Arts Educator. She was a keynote speaker for the OAEA (Ohio Art Education Association) 2012 Conference. She is on the Faculty of Harvard University’s Future of Learning Summer Institute.

Foley is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and The Ohio State University. Prior to joining the Museum, she was with the Institute of Contemporary Art at the Maine College of Art, the Portland Museum of Art, and the Wexner Center for the Arts.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
