Los nuevos Espacios de Aprendizaje llegan para promover el talento de los estudiantes | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

El espacio tiene el poder de transformar. Influye directamente en la forma de trabajar y en el desarrollo de las personas y de las organizaciones. La nueva cultura organizativa del siglo XXI y los avances tecnológicos han hecho que empresas, universidades y colegios busquen nuevos espacios que favorezcan la interacción, la comunicación y el trabajo colaborativo, como el coworking o los nuevos entornos inteligentes de aprendizaje.

La idea de que la relación con el entorno y el espacio influye en el desarrollo neuronal de las personas era uno de los principales puntos de estudio para muchos investigadores y estudiosos del cerebro a finales del siglo XX.

Visual design for learning

Visual design for learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

One of the common myths in the training field is the idea some learners are ‘visual’ while others are ‘auditory.’ In reality, all learners new to a content area benefit from a relevant visual. However, learners already experienced in a domain do not gain much from visuals added to words.”

Much of visual design for learning comes down to basic design principles, which once understood can be contextualised to the individual learning situation or project. In his book ‘The Non-Designer’s Design Book’ as: Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, Proximity. Before I read Williams’ theory, I was unknowingly teaching a similar model in my own TAFE teaching work. I had labelled these basic design principles as “Visual Hierarchy’, ‘Brand Consistency’, ‘Structure’ and ‘Visual Relationships.’

Higher Education’s future requires Entrepreneurial Leadership

Higher Education’s future requires Entrepreneurial Leadership | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Higher education has never faced as many challenges as it does today. Declining numbers of traditional students within the United States. Increasing costs with highly restrained revenue streams. An erosion of public trust. Competition from for-profit or corporate learning programs.

These are just some of the challenges discussed by college and university leaders at a meeting convened by The Chronicle of Higher Education and hosted by the Babson Academy for the Advancement of Global Entrepreneurial Learning at the College’s Boston location.

More than 90 presidents, provosts, and other senior administrators attended the invitation-only event designed to spark conversations about how colleges and universities must transform themselves to meet the changing demands of the learning marketplace.

Implementing the five moments of Need Model

Implementing the five moments of Need Model | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Before we begin let us first understand what IoT actually is. According to Wikipedia, IoT or the Internet of Things is the extension of internet connectivity into physical devices and everyday objects. Embedded with electronics, internet connectivity, and other forms of hardware (such as sensors), these devices can communicate and interact with others over the internet, and can be remotely monitored and controlled. The IoT, thus, is everything that is connected to the internet, and in the modern world we live in, there are only a handful of electronics which are not part of the IoT. This gap too will be bridged in the coming years, as a study predicts that the number of devices which will be a part of the Internet of Things (connected to the IoT) by 2025 will reach around 75 billion in number. But how does IoT affect eLearning? Simple. eLearning uses technology, and that technology uses the IoT. Thus eLearning uses the IoT. Let us now learn how the IoT has affected eLearning, and how it will affect eLearning in the future.

Embracing Sustainable Development Goals

Embracing Sustainable Development Goals | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Before students are able to directly tackle the challenges outlined in the 17 Global Goals, they need to build content and skill-related knowledge. Whether you are working to create a global focus in your curriculum or designing a specific PBL or IBL activity for your students, Curriculum Pathways provides both academic content and the skill-based resources you need.

Think of the 17 Global Goals as scaffolding to help students find greater relevance and meaningful applications for their learning. Challenge students to examine scientific concepts, patterns of human injustice, or data analysis skills in a global context. Global goals provide the opportunity to extend the challenges and successes experienced in a local project to similar components found in global issues.

Check out the free Curriculum Pathways resources that provide academic connections to Global Goals for science, math, English, Spanish, and social studies.

¿Innovar o Transformar?

¿Innovar o Transformar? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La innovación es un concepto polisémico que se presta a múltiples lecturas en función de quién lo utiliza, en qué contexto tiene lugar y a qué finalidades responde. Toda transformación educativa y social de signo emancipador incluye un componente innovador pero no todo proceso innovador supone una transformación. En cierto modo, se asemeja a la distinción tan lúcida como diáfana que señaló en su día Rosa Luxemburgo entre reforma y revolución, aplicado en este caso al ámbito educativo.

Learning in complexity and chaos

Learning in complexity and chaos | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

According to the Cynefin framework we should Probe > Sense > Respond when dealing with complexity, as opposed to Analyze > Sense > Respond when the situation is complicated. Mechanical systems are complicated, but human systems are complex. It means that we cannot over-plan, though planning itself prepares us to deal with what emerges as we probe complex situations and environments. In complicated conditions we can rely on established good practices, but in complex ones we need to continuously develop our own emergent practices.

How Online Education is shaping students future in India

How Online Education is shaping students future in India | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The online education market has found various methods of delivering knowledge, in the form of Massive Open Online Classrooms (MOOCs), online courses, research papers published online, videos, audio recordings, and other blended learning mediums. Since the online medium eliminates the need for a student to be physically present, it opens up the classroom to pretty much the entire world. A student sitting in Vishakhapatnam, looking to do a course on Digital Marketing (DM) can log on to Udemy or Coursera and sign up for a DM certification by Google delivered by a Facilitator in Ireland. He/she is ensured of top quality course material, a network of international peers a certification that will assure him/her a job, all at 1/10th of the cost. Similarly, a student from Srinagar preparing for the UPSC exam can sign up for online coaching classes from platforms like NeoStencil and have the same experience that someone attending classroom sessions will have. The student can study at their own pace, pause, and resume whenever they want and ask their questions and doubts to their teachers.

Reinventing Education for the Future of Work

Reinventing Education for the Future of Work | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

British educationalist Ken Robinson retains the distinction of getting the most viewed TED talk ever, and his broadly seen skewering of the contemporary education system was adorned upon in numerous presentations and books. He yells from an education system that was forged in the heat of the industrial revolution to create a workforce fit to execute the one task they’d need to do for the entirety of their working lives.

It is a system that is increasingly unfit for purpose, not only in terms of fulfilling the widely reported skills shortages in specialized disciplines, but also in skills such as collaboration and problem solving which are cited as being critical for the commercial revolution. With technology increasingly capable of performing routine tasks, it’s beholden on us to develop those skills that are fundamentally human.

They mention programs such as the Compte Personnel de Formation in France, which intends to supply all employees with access to 24 hours of training for each year they have been in the labor force.

Beyond Millennials: The next Generation of Learners

Beyond Millennials: The next Generation of Learners | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Pearson recently released the findings of its new report, “Beyond Millennials: The Next Generation of Learners”, highlighting the similarities and differences between Generation Z (defined as ages 14-23) and Millennials (defined as ages 24-40).

As Generation Z enters and settles into college, technology has already shaped their educational expectations, even more so than for the previous generation of traditional college students, Millennials. Generation Z expects experiences both inside and outside the classroom that are more rewarding, more engaging and less time consuming. Technology is no longer a transformative phenomena for this generation, but rather a normal, integral part of life.

This research was conducted by The Harris Poll, a global market research firm based in New York. Results are based on responses from a 30-minute nationally representative online survey of 2,587 respondents, 14 to 40-years old.

Disruptors have been compared to viruses that must survive the white blood cells of resistance within established businesses and institutions.

 

Overcoming resistance to change, especially when there is no apparent immediate crisis, remains an essential element of successful self-disruption within an organization. Resistance to change weakens as evidence mounts in favour of the self-disruption strategy.

The Power of Collaborative Learning: More important than ever

The Power of Collaborative Learning: More important than ever | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In today’s skills-based economy, people want to learn faster than ever. More than $200 billion is now spent on various forms of workplace training and the volume of content is massive. There are tens of thousands of videos, courses, articles, and tools dedicated to helping people learn. And more and more of it is designed to be “in the flow of work,” so you can learn where you are, when you have time, and when you need the help.

 

In this mad flurry to put more and more content online (YouTube now has 23 million channels and gathers more than 5 billion views per day), we seem to have left something out. The most powerful and memorable learning actually occurs when we talk with other people. Take a look at the research done on the Ebbinghouse Forgetting Curve, which essentially shows how quickly we forget what we learn.

4 key ways AI is impacting Higher Ed

4 key ways AI is impacting Higher Ed | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

What is the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) in higher education? A new report from The Learning House, Artificial Intelligence in Higher Education: Current Uses and Future Applications, outlines some of the ways AI is impacting higher ed and also examines implementation challenges.

The report also highlights important policy guidance and recommendations that are likely to accelerate AI innovation or, if unrealized, stifle its growth and adoption. For example, the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) last updated in 2001, predates many common education technologies including smartphones, tablets, wireless data, MOOCs, and even online education programs in general. The brief also cites necessary changes to policies on data security and accreditation.
