Smart Campus: The Next-Generation Campus

Smart Campus: The Next-Generation Campus | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The next-generation campus looks decidedly different from universities and colleges of the past and in many cases, the present. Using technologies that enable frictionless, touchless, and intuitive experiences—driven by a digitally connected community—these smart campuses seize true transformation to provide the level of service their digitally native student body and faculty have come to expect.

To stay competitive, institutions of higher learning must keep pace. Imagine if...answers to a late-night math question were addressed courtesy of a friendly chatbot... Entrance admissions applications were processed in hours, not weeks... Parking systems alerted motorists to nearest open spaces... Connected blackboards allowed professors to quickly share grading assignments with teaching assistants (TAs)... Courses were shared seamlessly from classrooms across the country. These are just a few advancements enabled by a smart campus.

How to effectively work with SME's

How to effectively work with SME's | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

As an instructional designer, you may be asked to create a course on a variety of topics including neurophysics, business law, financial operations, marketing processes, corporate procedures, and more. In most cases, the instructional designer is not the domain expert of the content. Just because you know something does not mean that you can effectively teach something!

The instructional designer is the architect and curator of the course not necessarily the knowledge expert. As a result, you will need to rely heavily on SME's and their knowledge to create effective courses.

3 reasons I’m hopeful about the Future of Education — in 2021 and beyond

3 reasons I’m hopeful about the Future of Education — in 2021 and beyond | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Throughout the unusual and challenging year that was 2020, it was sometimes a struggle to look beyond the next few weeks—or even days—into the future. Contemplating the future is difficult when the present feels so unsettling, especially in the classroom.

While the abrupt shift to a remote environment forced educators into unfamiliar territory, it also provided us with an opportunity to innovate and potentially change the course of education forever. Throughout a year full of headaches and heartaches, we continued to show up for our students in new and unprecedented ways. We might not have covered all the math equations or history content as flawlessly and thoroughly as we would in a normal year, but we learned a great deal along the way.

La Educación Disruptiva se expande por todos los sectores de la sociedad

La Educación Disruptiva se expande por todos los sectores de la sociedad | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Lo que denominamos SOCIEDAD DISRUPTIVA, la cual construirán otras personas, ya no las que ahora están ocupando lugares de lideraje, responsabilidad…los cuáles seguramente no estarían por la labor de hacerlo, o por tener adquiridos ciertos “tics”, pero también porque los relevos entraman “higienes” necesarias en cualquier nueva etapa de la vida, se está expandiendo por todos los sectores de la sociedad.

 

Si bien el planteamiento económico actual está basado en premisas equivocadas, tal como se ha demostrado por la propia comunidad internacional (paradigma equivocado), ya que para que exista recuperación y reactivación económica debe haber dinamismo económico y social, inversiones, bajadas de impuestos y aumento del consumo con lo que el trabajo afloraría, acceso a los créditos…, esto significaría ¿Qué no sería necesario refundar la sociedad? NO, se debe realizar igualmente ya que como solemos comentar, todas las innovaciones , por muy buenas que sean, llegan a “contaminarse”, por lo que en cada ciclo temporal hay que realizar disrupciones necesarias-

How essential is eLearning to our lives?

How essential is eLearning to our lives? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Learning is the ultimate foundation of life and its evolution. This is the reason why the government has made education a mandatory fundamental right and free for all till the age of 14 (under the purview of the right to education). But, don't you think our learning and teaching methodologies need to learn too? eLearning is the new, smarter paradigm of learning, wherein concepts and knowledge are provided to the pupil in the form of online content, including images, texts, videos, 3D objects, amongst others; they tend to make learning not only better but also interesting.

Considering an Adaptive Learning System? A roadmap for policymakers

Considering an Adaptive Learning System? A roadmap for policymakers | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Educational technology, or EdTech, has been a promising avenue to address some of the most challenging policy questions within educational systems in low- and middle-income countries. However, after decades of promises to disrupt and revolutionize education, the impact of EdTech on learning outcomes has been mixed. The drive to provide tech-based support to improve teachers’ instruction and facilitate student learning has become urgent, given school closings and re-openings due to the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the few silver linings of the pandemic, is that it has transformed the field, shifting the focus from disruption to mitigation and inclusion, with the potential to reduce inequity.

Teaching the Teachers: Why online learning training will be crucial for Higher Ed talent prospects

Teaching the Teachers: Why online learning training will be crucial for Higher Ed talent prospects | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Just as many college students have struggled to adapt to the online learning systems necessitated by the pandemic, so too have many professors and instructors. These instructors were asked to quickly adapt long-established teaching methods to technologies many had never used before, trying to maintain consistent contact with students facing a mix of uncertainties — from housing to internet access.

4 trends that will shape EdTech in 2021

4 trends that will shape EdTech in 2021 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

With the rapid spread of the pandemic, thousands of schools and millions of teachers globally had to switch to remote classes almost overnight.

Along with proving to be a dark horse for investors in 2020 with a whopping 223.2% rise in funding than in the previous year (Source: Inc42+), EdTech has also made things easier.

Some key shifts that happened in 2020 that prepared the ground for a quantum leap for EdTech in 2021 include:

  • EdTech startups attracted over $2.2 billion in investments
  • The new National Education Policy opens doors for technology to play a key role in creating more inclusiveness of education.
  • Birth of new EdTech players whereby the number of startups shot above 4500
  • New niche segments identified by players to cater to specific needs
  • The growth that would have come in a few years got condensed to less than a year thereby boosting acceptance rather quickly
  • Hiring in the EdTech sector far outpaced that in most sectors

El buen profesor no deja nunca de aprender, recuerda José Fernando Calderero | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El buen profesor no deja nunca de aprender. Una de las mejores cosas que podemos hacer por nuestros alumnos es contagiarles nuestras propias inquietudes intelectuales y nuestro afán investigador y de mejora social. Un profesor que se “estanca” es un contrasentido. Lo que nos debería llamar la atención es el inmovilismo. La Escuela, la Universidad no debería ir a remolque de la sociedad, limitándose a transmitir conocimientos más o menos desfasados.

What’s the EdTech vaccine? 10 design principles | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Pandemic education made clear the need for learning platforms that reliably support rich in-person and remote learning experiences. It accelerated the shift from teacher as an individual practitioner to learning facilitator as a member of a school as a service team.

The addition of video conferencing to the EdTech stack was a mostly great additional capability in 2020. But it encouraged many schools to attempt a bad video version of traditional school at a distance (often a well-intentioned effort to comply with outdated policies).

Escuela Digital para combatir la desigualdad educativa

Escuela Digital para combatir la desigualdad educativa | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La brecha educativa tiene que ver no solo con el nivel de conocimientos y el acceso a la tecnología, sino también con el estrato social y económico, e incluso con la región donde se vive dentro de un mismo país. Todo ello ha quedado patente con la llegada de la pandemia y la puesta en marcha a toda prisa de una escuela digital.

Alfredo Hernando, fundador de Escuela 21, comentaba durante el evento Enlighted 2020, en la mesa redonda “Romper la brecha educativa: la escuela digital contra la desigualdad”, que con el estallido de la pandemia 190 sistemas educativos de todo el mundo pararon a la vez y se posicionaron en un nuevo punto de partida por una escuela digital.

Era una prueba no ensayada, un espacio que nunca habíamos podido imaginar, y que nos sumergió de lleno en la era del aprendizaje, en la era dorada de los datos y la personalización”.

¿Está considerando un Sistema de Aprendizaje Adaptativo? Una hoja de ruta para los responsables de políticas | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La tecnología educativa (EdTech), ha ofrecido una prometedora oportunidad para atender algunas de las preguntas más desafiantes de las políticas en los sistemas educativos de países de ingresos bajos y medios. Sin embargo, tras décadas de promesas sobre su poder disruptivo y revolucionario en la educación, el impacto de EdTech en los resultados del aprendizaje ha sido desigual. Brindar apoyo basado en la tecnología para mejorar la instrucción de los maestros y facilitar el aprendizaje de los estudiantes se ha vuelto urgente, si consideramos el cierre y la reapertura de escuelas debido a la pandemia de COVID-19. Uno de los pocos aspectos positivos de la pandemia, es que ha transformado el campo, cambiando el enfoque desde la promesa disruptiva a un mayor énfasis en la mitigación e inclusión con un potencial reductor de desigualdad.

Instructional Design for Microlearning: 5 tips to ace it! | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

We live in a changing world with changing priorities. Employees in corporate organizations are no longer interested in spending hours in training. They want to learn as they work, get to know the solution to the problem without beating about the bush. Fortunately, microlearning for corporate training solves that problem for you.

Of the many benefits microlearning offers, its ability to deliver effective training in tiny modules, focusing only on the need-to-know content, is by far the most important. But how is it that microlearning with such small training resources is so effective in training employees?

Discussions are taking place about what the new normal will look like post COVID-19, with many wondering about the future of work and education.

Some are in favour of an at-home learning environment for the future as it means no more commuting to campus — especially during the cold winters — as well as saving money on paid parking, buses, subways, and time in general.

While many feared this transition during the pandemic’s first wave, working and studying from home has been proven to be feasible.

The Crisis in Education: Hannah Arendt

The Crisis in Education: Hannah Arendt | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The focus of this essay/thinking exercise, Chapter 5 in Hannah Arendt’s book, Between Past and Future, is the crisis of education in America. This she says has become an important factor in politics (incomparably more important than in other countries), because of the difficulty of ‘melting together’ diverse ethnic groups, which can only be accomplished through schooling, so that English, and what it means to be an American, can be learned by all groups. In America education is seen as a political activity to make a better world, but Arendt thinks this is dangerous and that education should be kept separate from politics.

Microschools meet the moment | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

After tutoring kids in a Phoenix library for a few years, Kelly Smith and seven neighborhood kids started the first Prenda microschool. Two years later there were 200 tiny Prenda schools meeting in living rooms and community spaces.

Given the choice of sending children back to school or enrolling them in a questionable online program, many parents are considering alternatives including starting or joining a microschool.

Prenda was among the first grantees of the VELA Education Fund, a new nonprofit fund that supports pioneering entrepreneurs building and leading innovative, out-of-system education models. VELA launched with seed funding from the Walton Family Foundation and the Charles Koch Institute and is expected to grow to include additional donors over time.

5 EdTech myths we should leave behind

5 EdTech myths we should leave behind | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

This week I led a reading group session at my school on the article, “Have Technology and Multitasking Rewired How Students Learn?” by Daniel Willingham (here). Having led a lot of these, I’m convinced that reading groups are a more effective and enjoyable form of professional learning than ones that do not focus on a text. One reason why this is may be related to the concept of “Three Point Communication,” as shown in the infographic below. As teaching is so closely tied to identity, it can feel confrontational to talk directly about one’s teaching. Using an aid (like a research article) changes the dynamic:

Reimagining virtual collaboration for the Future of Work and Learning

Reimagining virtual collaboration for the Future of Work and Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

We’ve reached an inflection point. As the global response to COVID-19 evolves, communities around the world have moved from an era of “remote everything” into a more hybrid model of work, learning, and life. And as we all scramble to keep up, the future of work and education is being shaped before our eyes. At Microsoft, we’ve spent the last few months learning from our customers and studying how they use our tools. We’ve also worked with experts across virtual reality, AI, and productivity research to help understand the future of work. These findings, which are published here, guide us as we design technology to help our customers today and in the future.

Today we’re announcing a set of new features in Microsoft Teams that make virtual interactions more natural, more engaging, and ultimately, more human. These features offer three key benefits for people at work and in education. First, they help you feel more connected with your team and reduce meeting fatigue. Second, they make meetings more inclusive and engaging. And third, they help streamline your work and save time. It’s all about enabling people everywhere to collaborate, to stay connected, and to discover new ways to be productive from anywhere. Let’s dig into the details.

Aunque ambos ABP y ABR suenan hoy en día como metodologías innovadoras, lo cierto es que no son tan actuales y sus orígenes son anteriores al s.XXI.

The online learning industry, or eLearning as many call it, has been growing for years. The COVID-19 pandemic just pushed it into new territory.

Since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, online learning has gone from a good option to a centric part of people’s lives. Not only have schools and universities shut down in many parts of the country, but so have businesses and organizations. Formal education, continuing education, elective courses… they’ve all gone online. And one has to wonder how much of the industry will stay online even after the virus is contained.
