Convergence and the impact on our training paradigm

Convergence and the impact on our training paradigm | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Convergence is causing a collision “at the point of work” with the need to apply the knowledge that what was effectively transferred during training – at individualized moments of need – to support flawless execution within the workflow. Training does not…and cannot…facilitate convergence. It can however, contribute to a more holistic Learning & Performance paradigm that is inclusive of training. So there is hope for our paradigm…


Our problem was focusing on nailing the deployment of learning because it was our job…and then screaming over the wall to the Help Desk – “INCOMING!!!”, and it was, and it did. So we applied a band-aide on the next wave of deployment and had super-users specially trained wearing red vests and trolling workspaces looking for hands raised in desperation when a moment of need arose. No. Not sustainable. Cost alone scuttled that fix.

[PDF] A framework and resources for measuring students needs and development: During Remote and Blended Learning

[PDF] A framework and resources for measuring students needs and development: During Remote and Blended Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it
The abrupt shift to remote learning in the spring of 2020 coupled with existing systemic inequities and varied access to technology led to inconsistent, and in some cases nonexistent, contact between students and schools. As a result, many schools had a limited understanding of the needs and development of individual students, and districts and the State had an incomplete picture of the conditions of their constituencies. As Illinois moves forward through the crisis over the course of the 2020 – 2021 school year, educators and system leaders have the opportunity to design stronger information gathering systems for measuring engagement, social-emotional and physical needs, and academic progress to adapt to the new contexts of remote and blended learning so that they are better able to make informed decisions to support student needs.
 
Representatives from Illinois schools and districts indicated that it would be helpful to have a tool to guide the development of their information gathering systems in remote and blended learning and to reference successful models and useful research. This framework organizes the types of information pertaining to student needs and development into three overarching categories:
 
  • Engagement
  • Social-Emotional and Physical Needs
  • Academic Progress
 
Each category includes a number of subcategories where we describe (i) teacher and administrator insights relating to remote learning and information collection; (ii) promising practices from across Illinois and the nation; and (iii) exemplars, resources, and research from national and state sources to inform strategies for information collection. (Note: The resources were identified through EdSystems’ research and recommendations from teachers and administrators. Their inclusion in this framework should not be viewed as an endorsement by the P-20 Council or the State.) In some areas, recommendations for additional projects or State-level resources are identified.
 
The framework’s organization of categories and subcategories can help districts and schools to self-assess their information collection and reporting approaches as continued shifts between in-person and remote instruction are necessary over the course of this school year. The promising practices and resources can help to guide action as part of a continuous improvement process

Report: Students think value of College declined

Report: Students think value of College declined | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Ninety-four percent of college students surveyed believe online classes should cost less than in-person instruction, according to a new report from Barnes & Noble Education. The report is based on responses from 1,438 students and provides an outlook on the future of higher education following the coronavirus pandemic. Nearly half of the students surveyed also said that the value of college has declined as a result of the pandemic.

Brad's curator insight, March 1, 7:21 PM

Having a daughter in her first year at University, she has voiced her agreement with this! Students are being given PowerPoint presentations from their professors overloaded with blocks of text, with limited interactions, and snoring delivery.  This is no way to teach youth that were raised with access to so much technology. Reimaging education!

Four causes for ‘Zoom fatigue’ and their solutions

Four causes for ‘Zoom fatigue’ and their solutions | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Prompted by the recent boom in videoconferencing, communication Professor Jeremy Bailenson, founding director of the Stanford Virtual Human Interaction Lab (VHIL), examined the psychological consequences of spending hours per day on these platforms. Just as “Googling” is something akin to any web search, the term “Zooming” has become ubiquitous and a generic verb to replace videoconferencing. Virtual meetings have skyrocketed, with hundreds of millions happening daily, as social distancing protocols have kept people apart physically.

In the first peer-reviewed article that systematically deconstructs Zoom fatigue from a psychological perspective, published in the journal Technology, Mind and Behavior on Feb. 23, Bailenson has taken the medium apart and assessed Zoom on its individual technical aspects. He has identified four consequences of prolonged video chats that he says contribute to the feeling commonly known as “Zoom fatigue.”

When virtual animations are teaching, can they make an emotional connection?

When virtual animations are teaching, can they make an emotional connection? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Studies have shown that students learn better from instructors displaying positive emotions—in other words, an upbeat lecturer is more effective than someone delivering in monotone. But when video lessons are led by computer animations instead of live instructors, how much do their simulated emotions matter?

That’s the subject of a research project at the University of California at Santa Barbara. Researchers have created a series of video lessons—some delivered by humans and others by animated digital characters—to see whether students notice the difference, and how it matters.

How to get your educators excited about using EdTech

How to get your educators excited about using EdTech | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The pandemic has taken a toll on all our institutions, and schools aren’t exempt. School leaders know that schools are closed, but teaching must go on, and; learning must go on.

Schools have moved to online learning. Educators are working from home, delivering classes to learners over the video, preparing lesson plans, collaborating with other educators, amongst many other tasks. Educators are working harder and longer, and many are exploring the edtech at their disposal. It is a big change that requires school leaders to manage their educators’ motivation to prevent loss in productivity and burn-out.

Here are a few strategies to make sure your educators remain motivated and online schooling continues smoothly.

Organizing a modern EdTech stack for modern pedagogy, Part I: The SIS | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In both the Instructional Supports Guide and Edtech Leadership Guide, we suggest to edleaders they take advantage of this opportunity for updating not just policies but their technological infrastructure as well. We cover topics in both guides indicating a shift in priorities to a more learner-centered approach is well worth the effort to improve our educational offerings for a more equitable learning environment for all students, regardless of the continued impact of a global pandemic and call to eradicate systemic injustice. For the sake of sustaining such endeavors and see it reflected in the procurement, implementation, and integration of tools to accomplish this mission, we will focus on those enterprise tools that impact most directly the shared vision and mission of most local education agencies in Texas, regardless of size and location.

El conocimiento nunca había sido obsoleto tan rápido como ahora

El conocimiento nunca había sido obsoleto tan rápido como ahora | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Una de las características más grande del conocimiento en este momento es la obsolescencia rápida. Creo que la obsolescencia nunca había sido tan rápida, tanto del conocimiento como de la información. Eso quiere decir que una educación que enseña unas técnicas o que enseña alguna información se vuelve obsoleta muy rápidamente. Entonces es muy posible que la educación tenga que ir en la dirección de una formación más fundamental. Quién sabe qué nombre tendrá la ingeniería del futuro, nombres raros y combinaciones diferentes, pero no hay duda de que esa ingeniería va a necesitar matemáticas, física, conceptos fundamentales.La educación seguro migrará hacia lo fundamental, lo básico, y hacia entrenamientos específicos en técnicas y tecnologías.

El eLearning ante la Industria 5.0

El eLearning ante la Industria 5.0 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El eLearning nació en la época de la industria 3.0 y se ha ido desarrollando en estos años, de una forma veloz y acompasada con la tecnología que forma parte intrínseca del llamado, por José Lozano, presidente de AEFOL: “Triángulo del eLearning”, que está conformado por: tecnología (LMS-campus virtual, herramientas de autor, etc.) contenidos (cursos online multimedia, etc.) y servicios (acción tutorial).

En estos momentos y como se trató en la 19 edición del Congreso Internacional EXPOELEARNING, ya existen ejemplos del uso de la Inteligencia Artificial-IA en eLearning, como mostraron empresas como IBM, Telefónica y Microsoft.

Esta tendencia irá creciendo en los próximos años, por lo que podemos afirmar que el eLearning se encuentra ya en plena Industria 5.0, podemos hablar por tanto del e-learning 5.0.

It’s hard to imagine a time in recent history when we had more distractions, more challenges, more stuff to think about that is way more important than technology. But as someone reminded me earlier today, the show must go on. You still have work to do. You still have students who need an education. And the tools in this year’s Teacher’s Guide to Tech can help.

If this is the first time you’re hearing about the guide, here’s a quick video I made two years ago to give you an idea of what it is and how it works:

Preparando la dimensión didáctica del Aprendizaje Móvil

Preparando la dimensión didáctica del Aprendizaje Móvil | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Un proceso de aprendizaje siempre tiene lugar en un entorno de aprendizaje específico caracterizado por una dimensión espacial y social (por ejemplo, entornos formales como la universidad, la escuela, seminarios de educación continua e instituciones educativas, entornos informales como el ocio y los contactos sociales). En una visión teórica del aprendizaje móvil, la característica clave de la movilidad es que el entorno de aprendizaje es cambiante en esta forma de aprendizaje. Esto plantea exigencias especiales en la implementación de aplicaciones de aprendizaje móvil y, por lo tanto, debe tenerse en cuenta en su concepción. Las teorías del aprendizaje clásico pueden servir de guía, pero deben adaptarse a estas necesidades y seleccionarse de acuerdo con el propósito de una aplicación.

Necesitamos con urgencia crear más, mejor y “otros espacios y otros escenarios” que sea como ellos necesitan y quieren” para los aprendices ,necesitamos otras perspectivas para enriquecer y profundizar en nuestros aprendizajes, por lo que deberemos basarnos en el valor del aprendizaje de una manera ABIERTA, INCLUSIVA Y UBICUA,…. y estableciendo la evaluación como base del aprendizaje, como no podría ser de otra manera.

Necesitamos que la gente entienda que Evaluación y Aprendizaje son inseparables, que son lo mismo, vaya. La información sobre la evaluación nos ayudará a que el mapa maestro de nuestros próximos pasos para alumnos muy diversos (INCLUSIÓN) y la clase en su conjunto. Las evaluaciones más significativos y útiles se llevarán a cabo todos los días en las aulas presentando pruebas sobre como los aprendices necesitan tiempo adicional y apoyo e informar a la práctica docente.

eLearning: La nueva forma de aprender y capacitarse

eLearning: La nueva forma de aprender y capacitarse | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Con el avance de la tecnología desde finales de la década de los años 90 se dio paso a una nueva forma de aprendizaje y capacitación incorporando y adaptando materiales didácticos a la educación.

Empezaron las clases, cursos y foros a distancia, creación de aulas virtuales, intercambio de archivos y una gran variedad de herramientas adicionales. Esta plataforma conocida como e-learning permitía una mayor interacción entre los participantes, además de ser un espacio virtual de aprendizaje dirigido principalmente a la capacitación a distancia.

Nunca se imaginaron los precursores de esta plataforma eLearning que sería la herramienta principal para contrarrestar las consecuencias sociales y educativas de la pandemia.

Niños y jóvenes viendo sus clases desde casa, reuniones de trabajo, jornadas de capacitación, en fin, son muchas las personas que se han beneficiado de esta herramienta que une educación y tecnología sobre todo en época post-pandemia.

Daños que está causando en universitarios la Educación Virtual

Daños que está causando en universitarios la Educación Virtual | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Podría afirmar que el 100% de los estudiantes entrevistados odiaban las clases virtuales, los problemas de conexión del internet, la dificultad para poder participar, la distancia con el profesor, existía una desmotivación generalizada y un deseo urgente por volver a la presencialidad.

Un año después en varios de ellos se evidencia un conformismo que va acompañado de una zona de confort que lleva por el suelo el trabajo en su formación como personas y profesionales.

La Educación Virtual no tiene nada que ver con el mal diseño de los cursos ofrecidos en la Educación Remota de Emergencia.  Son dos instancias completamente diferentes.

Aprender del futuro

Aprender del futuro | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Una cosa es aprender lo que ya sabemos. Ese es el negocio de la educación mediante las asignaturas en los colegios y universidades y los cursos de formación en las organizaciones. Los problemas sobre los que nos hace pensar el sistema educativo son casi siempre de respuesta correcta, es decir, predecibles y cuantificables: “Un tren se desplaza a 50 km/h…”. El asunto es que ese conocimiento del pasado, que resulta necesario porque nos garantiza el presente, pronto lo vamos a automatizar y caduca cada vez más rápido. Pero otra cosa muy distinta es aprender lo que no se sabe, aquello que no tiene respuesta correcta, como ha ocurrido con el coronavirus.

Instructional Design strategies for Sticky Learning

Instructional Design strategies for Sticky Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Sticky eLearning or stickiness refers to creating memorable eLearning experiences that learners remember even after a training session is over. In other words, activating the brain for long-term retention and designing learning based on cognitive experiences. For instance, most of us still remember certain learning experiences from our childhood because of an interesting story, an activity or simply because your instructor was so good.

4 reasons why an LMS is a perfect solution for digital minimalism

4 reasons why an LMS is a perfect solution for digital minimalism | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

But there is a trend that goes against the way of life inspired by consumerism, as more and more people decide to live with less: it’s called minimalism. We have seen it in architecture and interior design, but it goes beyond that. Some people get by with only a few t-shirts, a pair of jeans, and a leather jacket, and they are perfectly happy with their wardrobe. They don’t feel the need to follow trends or buy the newest items. Minimalism is a philosophy of life.

With the plethora of apps and platforms, the digital world can be overwhelming. Students and teachers across the globe who were forced by the pandemic to learn and work online may sometimes feel digital fatigue. This is why embracing digital minimalism (doing more with less) may come in handy, especially when you feel lost in the sea of apps.

Cognitive Load Theory, Executive Function, and Instructional Design

Cognitive Load Theory, Executive Function, and Instructional Design | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

I recently attended a conference about teaching students with executive functioning challenges. Executive functions are a set of essential cognitive capabilities and skills typically encompassing the three areas of self-control, flexible thinking, and working memory. Depending on which executive function skill or capacity you’re targeting, students can be supported by changing the environment, changing the student, or changing the teaching.

Organizing a modern EdTech stack for modern pedagogy, Part II: The LMS

Organizing a modern EdTech stack for modern pedagogy, Part II: The LMS | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

As we discussed in the first post of this series for evaluating your student information system (SIS), the software we use in our EdTech stacks are the tools we use to stay organized and keep instruction moving forward which are used by the largest swath of our learning communities. Specialists throughout our schools and in our district central offices may use other tools for productivity or supporting compliance and daily operations, but those platforms in which we invest our instructional intellectual property are the spine of our digital ecosystems tied to the core mission of helping kids grow.

Evaluating the learning management system (LMS) is the focus of this piece. The LMS is where instructional interaction occurs. It’s been said that the teacher is the learning management system and that learning transpires not in schools or in classrooms, whether digital or brick and mortar, but in the learner. Keeping in mind that these sophisticated platforms don’t usurp or displace the exchange between a teacher and learner is an excellent stance for evaluating whether or not the LMS (or how your current LMS has been used thus far) is serving your needs and respecting the agency of both the teacher and the learner.

Paulo Freire: ¿Qué es Enseñar y qué es Aprender?

Paulo Freire: ¿Qué es Enseñar y qué es Aprender? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Me parece importante volver sobre el tema sobre el papel del educador. Tanto a nivel de los teóricos como de los grupos de base viene dándose una tendencia muy fuerte y generalizada a concebir la relación educativa entre educadores y educandos como una relación horizontal, “entre iguales“, en la que, finalmente, nadie enseña a nadie. A tal punto ha llegado a extenderse esta visión que varios autores proponen la eliminación del rol del maestro. Y es este punto, justamente, el que suele encontrar mayor rechazo y mayores resistencias entre los educandos.

Anxiety is in the air. So, too, is anger, depression, bewilderment, and disappointment. With their lives in limbo, college students, with good reason, fear that their family’s finances, their academic plans, and, indeed, their future have been upended. Insecurity is rampant.

For those of us who will teach large online classes in the fall, the challenge is clear: We must design and deliver courses that are engaging, interactive, well supported, and responsive to the times.

Here are some simple, straightforward ways to ensure that Round 2 of online learning is measurably better than it was in the Spring.

Estrategias de apoyo a la facultad en tiempos de pandemia: La respuesta de dos instituciones

Estrategias de apoyo a la facultad en tiempos de pandemia: La respuesta de dos instituciones | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Durante los inicios de la pandemia del COVID-19, las instituciones educativas a nivel mundial experimentaron una transición acelerada a la educación remota. En escaso tiempo algunas se vieron completamente inmersas en un reto de capacitar a sus docentes con los conocimientos y destrezas para una enseñanza mediada en un 100% por la tecnología. El rol del docente virtual ha sido protagónico. Las estrategias y experiencias que se recogen en este escrito validan la necesidad de la planificación de las operaciones de educación a distancia. De igual modo, cómo estas apoyan los ofrecimientos presenciales durante una emergencia y fortalecen la operación. Se discute brevemente la necesidad de planificar para la continuidad académica y el énfasis en la preparación de la facultad, la transferencia de contenidos del método presencial a uno mediado por la tecnología, y el personal de apoyo. Los diseñadores instruccionales convirtieron sus hogares en laboratorios, estudios de grabación y las horas dedicadas a continuar transformando los objetos de aprendizaje para la continuidad de los cursos no se cuentan. Este artículo presenta algunas de las estrategias empleadas durante la rápida transición a enseñanza remota que se experimentó en dos instituciones cuyo éxito ha sido evidente en mantener la operación y en la retención de sus estudiantes.
