2020: ¿Está el mundo preparado para globalizar la Educación Virtual? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

¿Está el mundo preparado en 2020 para globalizar la educación virtual desde el hogar, según lo propuesto por la UNESCO y otros organismos internacionales para hacer frente a la pandemia del COVID-19 y al cierre de los sistemas escolares debido al confinamiento?

La respuesta es un clarísimo NO. Muchos dicen que la pandemia vino a mostrar la magnitud de las brechas digitales en el mundo, pero lo cierto es que la información básica estaba ahí mucho antes de que apareciera el virus. Basta mirar el sitio de la Unión Internacional de las Telecomunicaciones (UIT) - agencia de Naciones Unidas especializada en las Tecnologías de la Información y la Comunicación (TIC) - y consultar su último informe mundial sobre la Medición de la Sociedad de la Información (2018), el cual se refiere no solo al equipamiento y a los costos sino también al estado del conocimiento y las aptitudes necesarias para avanzar con las TICs en el mundo y especialmente en los países menos desarrollados.

Definitivamente el mundo no está preparado para globalizar la educación virtual, porque no todos dominan la era digital que ahora estamos viviendo.

La Universidad 4.0

La Universidad 4.0 | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Mucho se habla de la Universidad 4.0 en difentes foros educativos realizados en Estados Unidos y Europa, pero muy poco se habla de este paradigma en el Caribe. La pandemia provocada por el Coronavirus está empeorando la fragilidad financiera global. Como consecuencia de esta crisis global, los avances y adelantos tecnológicos que estaban destinados a lanzarse dentro de unos años han tenido que adelantarse en esta cuarentena. A partir de hoy veremos el lanzamiento de nuevas herramientas web, programas de código abierto, sistemas, plataformas y aplicaciones móviles diseñadas para enfrentar el aislamiento físico que detiene las actividades empresariales, gubernamentales, organizacionales, políticas, económicas, ambientales y educativas.

FRAME and the iLRN Conference: Immersive Poster Sessions

FRAME and the iLRN Conference: Immersive Poster Sessions | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN) is holding their annual conference this year in an immersive online environment, a campus they built in collaboration with VirBELA. The large-scale talks and gatherings throughout the course of the event are held in their large iLRN campus, since it can accommodate thousands of simultaneous users, but iLRN also decided to use FRAME (a VirBELA project) for "poster sessions": smaller group gatherings around particular research topics. These poster sessions were accessible right from a browser on desktop, mobile, or VR.

Technology in Learning: What does the future hold?

Technology in Learning: What does the future hold? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

There is no doubt about the fact that the era we live in is the era of technology. Technology rules our lives and has made everything from shopping, communicating, ordering food, traveling to entertainment, fitness, comfort, and learning easier and more accessible for us. Let’s talk about the role of technology in learning, it being the subject of interest to us.

The last decade has seen Learning and Development (L&D) professionals making great strides in imparting better learning to corporate learners through the use of technology. For example, blended learning, microlearning, mobile learning, gamification, AR/VR (Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality), simulations, adaptive learning and even AI (Artificial Intelligence) are now being used to develop skills and knowledge in corporate employees. And, all this is possible because of technological advancements. Technology is not only the present but the future of learning. But what else does technology hold for learning in the future? In this article, we’ll discuss certain likely applications of technology in learning in the future. Let’s have a look.

Future of Education and Future of Work - Do they match?

Future of Education and Future of Work - Do they match? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

The future of work is unfolding before us. Digitalization, remote work, employee empowerment and workforce diversity are historically high and the economy is thriving. Similarly, higher education is also undergoing a modern renovation as more online courses, virtual study groups, and digital learning management systems are incorporated into instructional design. Both industries are on a clear and quick path through the fourth industrial revolution and toward the dynamics of contemporary collaboration…but are they on the same path?

Remote Learning Strategy as a key element in ensuring continued learning

Remote Learning Strategy as a key element in ensuring continued learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In the context of the Global Education Coalition, UNESCO, in collaboration with key partners, is developing pioneering action toolkits to guide the educational response. Five of these topics are the subject of a collaboration between UNESCO and McKinsey.

 

The goal of these chapters is to support countries in their K12 educational response to COVID-19 by providing practices and examples, concrete steps for intervention, and tactical action checklists.

Edumorfosis's insight:

Nuestros políticos y dirigentes del DEPR debrían leer esta guía de respuesta al COVID-19, antes de decretar su plan de apertura escular 2020. Lamentablemente, nuestro sistema educativo opera para seguir órdenes de los superiores, no para ser un organismo ágil que aprende y fomenta el liderazgo colectivo.

6 insider secrets to be a good Online Instructor

6 insider secrets to be a good Online Instructor | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

A good teacher connects with their students, and with their subject matter. They’re deeply knowledgeable in their field, but they can also translate it to the level of their learners. They can convert it into easily absorbed chunks. This is why even with eLearning courses, an instructor matters. Many times, your online learners will need you to step in and put a human skew on their content. And in some ways, it’s easier to instruct online than off. You can focus on the learning material and minimize distractions, both for yourself and your online learners. Below are 6 top tips to be a good online instructor.

Higher Ed groups push for broadband access and infrastructure

Higher Ed groups push for broadband access and infrastructure | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Earlier this month, twenty-nine higher education associations—including the American Council on Education, the Association of American Universities, the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, and the Association of Governing Boards—joined EDUCAUSE in submitting a letter to Congress highlighting key concerns regarding student broadband access and research and education (R&E) network infrastructure. As the letter notes, the closing of physical campuses during the COVID-19 pandemic forced many students to return to homes and communities lacking effective access to broadband, at a time when such access is essential to maintaining academic progress and using related services. EDUCAUSE and its partners therefore asked Congress to ensure that efforts to increase unserved and underserved community access to broadband—for example, through using the E-Rate and Lifeline programs as vehicles to fund emergency measures—take into account the need to connect economically distressed college students in those communities with relevant opportunities.

Este año he tenido el privilegio de proponer y diseñar para el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo, el Bootcamp Virtual para la Enseñanza Remota. Es un taller intensivo de solo una semana de duración que responde a la súbita demanda por acelerar la migración de la docencia presencial a la docencia remota, a raíz del COVID-19.

El Bootcamp le ofrece a docentes de la región de América Latina y el Caribe un conjunto de directrices esenciales para el diseño de una estrategia preliminar de enseñanza en remota.

¿Será ya el momento de cambiar lo que entendemos por Educación?

¿Será ya el momento de cambiar lo que entendemos por Educación? | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

La escuela no puede prepararlos para un futuro contacto con la globalización, sino que, en términos generales, sólo puede reaccionar ante un contacto que ya se ha producido o ya se está produciendo. Desde el punto de vista de los alumnos, primero está el contacto con el mundo globalizado y después está el contacto con la escuela. Pretender invertir los términos es sencillamente una quimera.

En consecuencia, si queremos darle un mejor equipaje cultural a los miembros de las nuevas generaciones (y si queremos proporcionárnoslo a nosotros mismos) el primer frente de ataque no estará en la institución escolar sino fuera de ella, más precisamente en ese terreno difuso pero decisivo al que llamamos cultura. El desafío es cómo desarrollar una nueva sensibilidad, cómo reforzar nuestra capacidad de establecer conexiones entre hechos, cómo modificar nuestras categorías de análisis, de modo tal que la inevitable inmersión en el mundo globalizado no nos hunda en el desconcierto y en la irracionalidad colectiva….

6 benefits of Blended Learning Implementation

6 benefits of Blended Learning Implementation | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Blended Learning is a mix of classroom-based training (aka Instructor-Led Training or ILT) and some type of online/eLearning activity.


Blended Learning = ILT + online learning (synchronous and asynchronous) + performance support

Yet such a definition does not work in today’s COVID-afflicted corporate world [1]. At a time when employees are home-bound, it should be possible to define a pure blended learning strategy using different online learning mechanisms—synchronous (e.g. virtual classrooms) and asynchronous learning delivery (e.g. self-paced eLearning).

In a previous blog post, we talked about why having a mobile learning strategy is important to future proof your workforce and retain talent in your organization. One of the considerations when you decide to implement a mobile learning strategy is whether you will be going for a native mobile app, or use a mobile-friendly platform.

While, if done well, both systems are effective, having a mobile learning app gives you some tremendous advantage over a mobile responsive LMS.

Here are some of the top benefits of using a mobile learning app as part of your L&D:

Debido a que la gestión del conocimiento parece estar haciendo una reaparición, pero esta vez tiene un nuevo traje brillante y está llamado aprendizaje social. Social learning)..La ola KM fue impulsado inicialmente por el gran tecnología — la idea de que una organización podría de alguna manera manejar su conocimiento era atractiva en una economía donde el conocimiento era tan importante como el capital. Pero el conocimiento es difícil de alcanzar y las formas más valiosas de conocimiento se negó a ser almacenada en bases de datos corporativas.

La respuesta de la mayoría de los profesionales era un enfoque centrado en el mayor número de personas. El valioso conocimiento reside en cabeza de la gente por lo que la mejor manera de salir a la superficie, es a través de conversaciones en las comunidades — comunidades de práctica y las comunidades de interés.

Reflexiones de un Educador en tiempos del Coronavirus

Reflexiones de un Educador en tiempos del Coronavirus | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Entre todo esto, el mundo de la educación, la escuela, los procesos pedagógicos y nosotros, los y las docentes, también nos hemos visto afectados en nuestra conciencia, nuestra práctica y, por lo tanto, en nuestra labor. De pronto, sin previo aviso, la epidemia nos deja sin el espacio del aula, nos quita nuestras herramientas de enseñanza, nos replantea los tiempos, los horarios y las prácticas a las cuales estábamos acostumbrados para enseñar; pero, sobre todo, nos aleja de nuestra contraparte más preciada, la que da sentido a la labor que realizamos: nuestros niños y niñas, adolescentes y jóvenes estudiantes.

Sin avisarnos, de una manera repentina, casi violenta, la epidemia y la crisis sanitaria nos pone frente a un computador y nos obliga –sin preparación previa para muchas y muchos de nosotros– a planificar, organizar y dar clases en una modalidad que muy pocos –o en muy limitada medida– conocíamos: la educación a distancia.

6 killer examples of Gamification in eLearning

6 killer examples of Gamification in eLearning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Gamification elements provide enjoyment, challenge, and opportunity. eLearning gamification entices, motivates, challenges, and empowers learners so they willingly achieve higher objectives. It is more than entertainment, although games need to be fun. Games lead to deeper engagement, and that brings better retention and changes in behavior. Learners explore concepts, make strategic decisions, receive immediate feedback, and willingly re-engage after unsuccessful attempts.

Trump puts Skills over Degrees in federal hiring; College groups confident in value of degrees | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

In signing an executive order Friday revamping how the federal government does hiring, President Donald Trump took aim at the necessity of having a college degree.

 

Trump, in ordering that the government move away from requiring that applicants have degrees, said he wants to make it easier for those without a higher education to get federal jobs.

But higher education leaders said they didn’t take the move as a blow. The government still will want applicants who have the skills they get from going to college.

The outlook for Harvard’s Online Learning

The outlook for Harvard’s Online Learning | Edumorfosis.it | Scoop.it

Most American students in higher education were forced to finish their spring semesters online because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of them will start the next academic year in some sort of remote learning environment as well. Harvard is no different; some University Schools already have announced that they will be conducting courses entirely online this fall.

The Gazette spoke with Vice Provost for Advances in Learning Bharat Anand, author of “The Content Trap,” to discuss the transition to virtual learning, how Harvard is planning for a fall semester largely online, and the new opportunities that could integrate virtual classrooms with traditional ones.
