El #powerpoint en el diseño instruccional

El #powerpoint en el diseño instruccional | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El powerpoint o cualquier programa de diapositivas tienen mala fama. Sobre todo si vienen en un correo electrónico reenviado millones de veces y con mensajes de autoayuda…. Pero si lo asociamos a su uso en el diseño instruccional, nos viene a la cabeza  un producto de elearning de una calidad cuestionable. Este pensamiento puede tener algo de verdad debido a los malos ejemplos que vemos por ahí de presentaciones o de “trasvase” literal de diapositivas diseñadas para una finalidad y convertidas en “contenido” scorm para su uso en un LMS a lo más gordo. En este post intentaremos quitar esa mala fama a esta herramienta y ver las posibilidades que ofrece como herramienta inicial y de base en el diseño.

El tiempo me dio la razón... | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

En esta entrada les comparto una de mis tantas experiencias laborales como profesor universitario. Ser docente fue una de las experiencias más gratificantes que he tenido. Esas experiencias me enseñaron a conocer muy de cerca a los estudiantes y ha desarrollar habilidades muy necesarias para mi trabajo actual que se basa en capacitar a los compañeros profesores en la integración tecnológica en sus procesos de enseñanza y aprendizaje.

Luego de haber prescindido mis servicios profesionales como profesor de Educación en 2003, fui contratado nuevamente en 2012 para impartir el curso básico de la Microcomputadora en la Educación. El curso original había sido actualizado con algunas de las recomendaciones que había sometido en mis primeros años docentes. Fue muy gratificante revivir en 2012-13 mis experiencias docentes con los estudiantes del programa de Educación. Fue muy decepcionante el trato que me dio la directiva por segunda ocasión. He llegado a pensar que nunca me aceptaron como miembro del claustro por ser y actuar diferente a ellos.

The critical importance of the learner experience in eLearning

The critical importance of the learner experience in eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Beyond content, beyond strategy, beyond processes, and beyond technology, the effectiveness of any learning program is ultimately only as good as the learner experience.

As you evaluate your existing learning management system (LMS) or scout out a new LMS, you probably have many checkboxes on your criteria list, and one of those should be the learner experience.

Even if learners are provided best-in-class tools and learning programs, if the actual learner experience does not facilitate a smooth, tailored learning journey, then the ship has sunk before it has even left the harbor.

Why we need to open our Virtual Classroom Doors and see each other teach

Why we need to open our Virtual Classroom Doors and see each other teach | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

I have heard from multiple educators across schools and districts that there is more collaboration than ever to design new models, practices, and support students. And yet, still too many are designing and teaching in isolation without having seen others teach in these new models. This means that teachers are limited by what they have seen or experienced in staff meetings, collaborations, or their own imaginations. This is the time to increase collaboration and open our virtual classroom doors to observe, learn, and improve.

We’re getting tablets for the students!” Such a wonderful statement isn’t it? Think about the possibilities for the students. They’ll have access to personalized devices for use throughout the school day. Each device will be connected to the Internet which will provide access to a wealth of knowledge and information. And each device will be loaded with apps that students will use to communicate, collaborate, and explore.

[PDF] The Future of Education and Skills

[PDF] The Future of Education and Skills | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
We are facing unprecedented challenges – social, economic and environmental – driven by accelerating globalization and a faster rate of technological developments. At the same time, those forces are providing us with myriad new opportunities for human advancement. The future is uncertain and we cannot predict it; but we need to be open and ready for it. The children entering education in 2018 will be young adults in 2030. Schools can prepare them for jobs that have not yet been created, for technologies that have not yet been invented, to solve problems that have not yet been anticipated. It will be a shared responsibility to seize opportunities and find solutions.
 
To navigate through such uncertainty, students will need to develop curiosity, imagination, resilience and self-regulation; they will need to respect and appreciate the ideas, perspectives and values of others; and they will need to cope with failure and rejection, and to move forward in the face of adversity. Their motivation will be more than getting a good job and a high income; they will also need to care about the well-being of their friends and families, their communities and the planet.
 
Education can equip learners with agency and a sense of purpose, and the competencies they need, to shape their own lives and contribute to the lives of others. To find out how best to do so, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) has launched The Future of Education and Skills 2030 project. The aim of the project is to help countries find answers to two far-reaching questions:
 
  • What knowledge, skills, attitudes and values will today's students need to thrive and shape their world?
  • How can instructional systems develop these knowledge, skills, attitudes and values effectively?

[PDF] Reinventar la Educación: El futuro del aprendizaje | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
La pandemia ha perturbado a todos los sectores de la sociedad y ha revelado sus puntos débiles, especialmente en nuestros sistemas educativos. La reacción a la crisis ha generado respuestas impresionantes por parte de individuos ypequeños grupos, y los educadores han dado un paso adelante para servir a sus comunidades. En algunos casos, lasasociaciones públicas y privadas han suplido sus carencias. Algunos sistemas educativos han podido ofrecer rápidamente experiencias de aprendizaje remotas, pero la mayoría han tenido problemas para satisfacer las necesidades de todos. La equidad, el acceso y la capacidad han sido insuficientes. Antes de la pandemia, muchos sistemas educativos estaban estancados;yla pandemia ha puesto de manifiesto el argumento de que se necesitan cambios fundamentales.
 
A causa de esta disrupción, se ha reconocido que los centros escolares desempeñan un papel vital que trasciende la mera enseñanza. Sus funciones de custodia y como entidades comunitarias son esenciales para una sociedad sana. Alenfrentarnos con los problemas de cómo reabrir los centros en esta época tan incierta, debemos aprovechar la oportunidad de reflexionar sobre lo que hemos aprendido y sobre aquello qué es más importante.
 
Los desafíos que han aflorado durante la disrupción no deberían resultarnos sorprendentes. Durante la última década, la implicación de los alumnos se ha desplomado. Su sensación de esperanza se ha visto deteriorada. Casi uno de cada cinco alumnos no alcanza un nivel mínimo básico de habilidades para resultar socialmente funcionales en la actualidad. Además, muchos sistemas escolares no han podido seguir el ritmo de los avances tecnológicos; hay centros que no han podido proporcionar un acceso generalizado a herramientas digitales. Cuando la pandemia llegó, uno de cada cinco alumnos no tenía acceso a Internet o a un dispositivo que pudieran usar durante el confinamiento. Esta disrupción ha descubierto que nuestros sistemas estaban gravemente desprovistos de capacidades para dar cabida a todos los alumnos. Para decirlo de forma clara: ha llegado el momento de hacer de la educación un instrumento para el bien individual y social.
 
¿Cómo decidiremos responder? ¿Improvisaremos juntos una reacción transitoria o aprovecharemos la oportunidad para transformar el sistema en sí? La pregunta gira en torno a qué será más convincente, si volver al statu quo o aprovecharemosla oportunidad para ayudar a los alumnos a convertirse en impulsores del cambio,expertos y capaces mediante un aprendizaje más en profundidad. Creemos que tenemos las soluciones ante nosotros. Disponemos de laoportunidad de administrar de forma creativalos problemas inmediatos mientras construimos un puente hacia unsistema educativo replanteado.

[PDF] Digital Skills Insights 2020

[PDF] Digital Skills Insights 2020 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
COVID-19 has impacted life around the globe for most of 2020. It has caused a global health, economic and social crisis whose impact is likely to be felt for generations to come. It has also demonstrated the vital role of digital technologies. With a significant share of the population being confined at home during various periods of the pandemic, the need for good Internet connectivity, appropriate digital tools and digital skills to use those tools has surfaced rapidly. A large number of activities related to work, school/education, caring, shopping, socializing and other pastimes, among others, moved from the physical to the virtual world. Internet-based companies such as Amazon, Zoom, Netflix and TikTok experienced record growth in sales and customer base, although others such as travel and transport-related platforms faced a steep decline.
 
This accelerated digital transition also revealed the challenges that still exist when it comes to connecting households and people, and the digital skills required to participate effectively in the online world – particularly in developing countries. With 90 per cent of schools closed and 1.6 billion children out of school during the pandemic, many educational institutions, teachers and pupils/students were confronted for the first time with remote teaching and online learning as the only way to continue education. In many developing countries, no teaching and learning took place at all due to insufficient or costly Internet access, lack of computers or laptops, and lack of remote teaching facilities and abilities, among others.
 
In the world of work, employers were forced to close offices. According to International Labour Organization estimates, workplace closures in the second quarter of 2020 resulted in the loss of 305 million jobs worldwide and 94 per cent of the global workforce was affected due to COVID-19. It has hit those in precarious jobs hardest, such as the 2 billion workers in the informal economy, of whom 1.6 billion face a threat to their livelihoods.
 
Organizations whose business could be carried out digitally moved towards remote working environments. The International Labour Organization estimated that about 18 per cent of workers are doing jobs and are in locations which lend themselves to teleworking. These numbers are significantly higher in developed countries, in large organizations and among higher-income workers. However, teleworking also brings challenges related to connectivity, equipment and skills – apart from those related to home-based working arrangements in combination with child and elder care responsibilities, etc.
 
Recognizing the benefits of working from home, public and private sector organizations alike are now reconsidering how they organize their work and remote working arrangements may continue to some extent beyond the pandemic. Others are reflecting on accelerating the use of technologies to enable new ways of working in the light of their pandemic experience.

4 crucial things to consider before creating an Online Course

4 crucial things to consider before creating an Online Course | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

“Distance learning”, “how to create online courses“ and “starting an online business from home” have been three of the hottest search terms on Google in 2020.

Research and Markets has reported that the online education industry is predicted to become a $325 billion industry by 2025. Many business owners, especially coaches, consultants and online entrepreneurs, are taking action and adding an (additional) passive income stream to their product suites. Others are starting to build their very own e-learning platforms.

However, many course creators out there are making the same mistakes when creating their online courses. Course creators get very excited about creating their digital products and dive right into creating them, which, in many cases, will result in them creating a product nobody wants to hear and see about. Most forget to consider the simplest steps every business should take before starting a new project.

How is AI being used in eLearning in 2020?

How is AI being used in eLearning in 2020? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Artificial intelligence, as a concept, is nearly as old as the computer itself. But its emergence as a tool with real-life applications is only a few decades old, and continues to evolve. Now, while we still wouldn’t say AI has become “mainstream,” it has become more common. Google now applies neural matching technology to roughly 30% of searches, voice searches are standard on all major smartphone operating systems, and social media platforms rely on AI to deliver content to users.

That said, the AI we encounter today is still a far cry from the self-aware, super-intelligent beings that science fiction authors are so fond of speculating about. The AIs we encounter while browsing the Internet or using our smartphones are what we would call “weak” or “narrow” AI. These are formed of algorithms with a limited function and little to no memory of the tasks they perform. They can be taught or trained to become better at their task, but they cannot make the leap from that task to something outside their programming.

eLearning: Boosted by the pandemic, where is the teaching method headed? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

eLearning or electronic learning is the delivery of education and training through digital resources. While it's not a brand new method, its inclusion across various sectors has been hugely accelerated due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

At Dubai's GEMS International School, most of the children returned to classes at the start of the new term, but the institution is actually delivering a mix of distance and in-person teaching.

Mike Kraher, the school's Head of Mathematics, says it was a learning curve - including for him, personally:

"I faced social challenges, to be honest. I missed my students. I missed teaching, I missed the classrooms. I think the lessons itself were still great. What I definitely brought into the classroom is the technology. When I teach with the iPad, I try to embed all these technical things in the classroom. There are good things and there are big advantages."

4 alternatives to teaching in Person and Online simultaneously

4 alternatives to teaching in Person and Online simultaneously | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
Whether it’s in one-on-one conversations, facilitating meetings with leaders, reading blogs and Instagram posts, we see all over the country that teachers, school and district leaders, parents, and kids are burnt out, and struggling to cope. We are teaching, learning, and living in the middle of crises and we cannot (nor should we try in my opinion) keep up with the way it has always been, while things are far from normal. We can’t keep adding more to people’s plates without getting diminishing returns on our health, learning, and relationships.

One of the challenges that many educators are facing is that they are being asked to teach double duty; teaching students simultaneously in person and online in what some are calling “hybrid” models. This article This Isn’t What We Meant by Hybrid Learning highlights what hybrid actually means despite how many have implemented it.

Un enfoque de aprendizaje profundo, con el apoyo de las estrategias necesarias y adecuadas a la personalización y socialización, así como su propio autodesarrollo y la motivación( Baeten, Struyven y Dochy) intrínseca se enmarcan en un aprendizaje activo y el enfoque constructivista, que tiene como objetivo crear condiciones para que los estudiantes desarrollen competencias.

Sin embargo, las investigaciones de los últimos años ilustran algunos elementos clave del concepto en sí, tanto desde los enfoques objetivistas y los constructivistas.( Kiffe y Guy ) denotan que una competencia implica, en primer lugar, la situación, es decir, se refiere a una o más situaciones en las que se domina in situ, como una aptitud para movilizar un conjunto de recursos adecuados de manera relevante con el fin de afrontar con éxito las situaciones problemáticas.

Las competencias deben ser evaluadas y, por lo tanto, se requieren criterios estándar con el fin de evaluar si la actuación ha tenido éxito o no. De hecho, dado que la competencia no es visible en sí, hay que observar a través de comportamientos medibles (resultados de aprendizaje).

Reimagining Learning and Assessment: Shaping Education

Over recent months teachers and learners have been using digital tools, old and new, to support teaching, learning and assessment, but are these tools really working for learners and their teachers?

How do they fit with the vision of an education that prepares learners effectively for society, study, work and life? Do they just replicate and perpetuate outdated models of learning? And how can we use new tools and technologies to shape a new model of learning – whether that’s in the classroom, online, or a combination of the two?

As we enter into a new school year, two things are certain. First, the experience for every member of the extended school community – students, educators, families, school officials, and staff – will be profoundly changed this fall. Second, learning for many students will take the form of full-time or part-time virtual learning outside of the classroom.

As learners and their families tackle these unprecedented challenges, it is incumbent on school districts, state and local officials, and communities to ensure that students have every support and resource possible to help them learn effectively in virtual learning settings–including access to actionable, culturally-competent digital training.

El uso de la tecnología para impartir educación en línea, ha dejado de ser la respuesta a una situación de emergencia y se ha convertido en la nueva norma. Al pasar a esta segunda fase, nuevos retos se presentan para mejorar la experiencia en línea de alumnos y maestros.

En artículos anteriores hemos hablado sobre los aspectos teóricos, pedagógicos y prácticos para adaptarse a una educación que necesita ser online. Aspectos fundamentales como la forma de establecer comunicación con los alumnos y asegurar que se encuentren en buen estado de salud emocional han sido ampliamente tratados en diversos textos sobre los temas básicos y de periferia para avanzar a esta nueva normalidad educativa.

¿Pero qué hay de aspectos más avanzados como el diseño de cursos, las metodologías de evaluación o la brecha digital? Tratar estos temas ya no es cuestión del futuro, es más bien un presente urgente. Ahora mismo los maestros tendrían que estar aprendiendo a construir programas educativos y evaluaciones que sean en línea de inicio.

[EDUCAUSE 2020] Student Technology Report: Supporting the whole student

[EDUCAUSE 2020] Student Technology Report: Supporting the whole student | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In this report, readers will find insights and actionable resources across the following dimensions of the student experience, which include several lines of inquiry new to the study this year

In each of these sections, we share key findings from our analysis of students' responses, concrete next steps your institution can take in response to those findings, and opportunities for connecting with peers who are implementing innovative practices in those areas. We believe the research resources we provide at EDUCAUSE are only as good as they are practicable, and so it is our sincere hope that you are able to make effective use of the content provided.

For the 2020 student study reports, 18,536 undergraduate students from 77 institutions in 6 countries and 31 US states participated in the research. The quantitative findings in this report were developed using 16,162 survey responses from 71 US institutions. This report makes generalized statements about the findings based on the large number of survey respondents. Applying these findings, however, is an institutionally specific undertaking. The priorities, strategic vision, student populations, and culture of an institution will inevitably affect the meaning and use of these findings in a local context.

By virtue of forcing so many people to work from home, the COVID-19 pandemic has become not only a catalyst for increased remote learning but a reinforcement that learning should strictly adhere to core principles such as relevance, self-directedness and goal orientation. Less effective training that could once be delivered by experienced trainers in a face-to-face classroom setting now must meet a different set of requirements to ensure that they can attain learning goals in remote environments, where learners are more likely to face new distractions. With remote working more commonplace now and as we look ahead, the need for strong instructional design has become more critical than ever to ensure learner engagement and learning effectiveness.
