Do Learners Really Know Best? Urban Legends in Education


Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, December 18, 2018 8:11 AM

Abstract

 

This article takes a critical look at three pervasive urban legends in education about the nature of learners, learning, and teaching and looks at what educational and psychological research has to say about them. The three legends can be seen as variations on one central theme, namely, that it is the learner who knows best and that she or he should be the controlling force in her or his learning. The first legend is one of learners as digital natives who form a generation of students knowing by nature how to learn from new media, and for whom “old” media and methods used in teaching/learning no longer work. The second legend is the widespread belief that learners have specific learning styles and that education should be individualized to the extent that the pedagogy of teaching/learning is matched to the preferred style of the learner. The final legend is that learners ought to be seen as self-educators who should be given maximum control over what they are learning and their learning trajectory. It concludes with a possible reason why these legends have taken hold, are so pervasive, and are so difficult to eradicate.

"Evolution, in its broadest sense, serves as a force to help humans move towards a better way of living given the current times or Zeitgeist.  It follows, then, that the education field should evolve as new opportunities and forces emerge and present themselves. But in general, this is not the case."

How to transform schools into Learning Organisations?

How to transform schools into Learning Organisations? | Future Education | Scoop.it
Schools nowadays are required to learn faster than ever before in order to deal effectively with the growing pressures of a rapidly changing environment. Many schools however, look much the same today as they did a generation ago, and too many teachers are not developing the pedagogies and practices required to meet the diverse needs of 21st-century learners.

In response, a growing body of scholars, educators and policy makers around the world is making the case that schools should be re-conceptualised as “learning organisations” that can react more quickly to changing external environments, embrace innovations in internal organisation, and ultimately improve student outcomes. Despite strong support for and the intuitive appeal of the school as a learning organisation, relatively little progress has been made in advancing the concept, either in research or practice. This lack of progress partly stems from a lack of clarity or common understanding of the school as learning organisation.

Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Excellent Videos OnThe Use of Augmented Reality Apps by Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Future Education | Scoop.it

"Below are some good videos I got a few days ago on examples of how some augmented reality apps are being used with kids to help them improve their learning. If the concept of augmented reality if all new to you then here is a brief definition of it: Augmented Reality is exactly what the name implies: an augmented version of realty created by mixing technology with the known world. It might be a distorted, augmented, or less augmented version of the actual world but in its basic form, augmented reality is a simulation or rather a way of superimposing digital contents into the real context."

The Department of Citizenship & Immigration in Australia created an augmented reality app for Harmony day which was AWESOME. I'm all for this near-holographic technology in classrooms! Best thing is - it's technology that gets students out of their chairs and keeps them engaged while they walk around exploring the 360 degree augmented "reality".

NASA also made a cool Mars Rover app.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 28, 8:04 AM

"The report provides the reader a comprehensive overview of the changes in the learning-to-employment landscape, why it has happened, highlighting the dramatic increase in working learners and learning workers. These two populations – one pursuing traditional degrees while holding down jobs, and the other pursuing small increments of education to advance within their jobs – are responsible for the tremendous gains seen in online learning (520% in 10 years), MOOCs (910% in 5 years), micro-credentials, and more. The ecosystem changes drill all the way down to assessment within courses, which is starting to focus much less on “how much of the material do you remember?” and much more on demonstrations of skill mastery –i.e., “prove to us how well you know this, by what you can do with it.” The report then calls out the need for improvements in assessment to that will enable automated systems to consistently recognize and calibrate the “know” and “do” skills across the future worlds of learning and work. In response to the report Dr Edan Jorgensen, Industrial-Organizational Psychologist, reflected, ”The world is not stagnant. Hiring practices have been. Its time to shift from traditional methods that do not predict success, and look towards the future. The future is an emerging workforce that is more dynamic than degree and [job] references. They are about change and making a difference through their employment.”

The Future of Education: Trends we are sure to witness | Future Education | Scoop.it

We are living in an era when technology has evolved our lives beyond our imagination. So used to tech-enabled solutions, even the thought of living without them comes across as a nightmare to us. Following the herd for good, the education sector is also not spared from the shower of such tech advancements.

Today, students are happy learning lessons on their tablets and are enjoying the bliss of VR to go back in time and live in different eras—instead of merely reading their history notes. We are already witnessing the future of education now, and as it moves forward, it will indeed continue to be a treat.

Amidst all such advancements and cutting-edge tech inclusions, the education sector is destined to evolve.

To better understand where it’s headed, let’s have a look at some of the ways technology inclusions will be spelled out in the education sector in the years to come.

63 Things Every Student Should Know In A Digital World - TeachThought

63 Things Every Student Should Know In A Digital World - TeachThought | Future Education | Scoop.it
t could be argued—and probably argued well—that what a student fundamentally needs to know today isn’t much different than what Tom Sawyer or Joan of Arc or Alexander the Great needed to know.

Communication.

Resourcefulness.

Creativity.

Persistence.

How true this turns out to be depends on how macro you want to get. If we want to discuss our needs as humans in broad, sweeping themes, then food, water, shelter, connectivity, safety, and some degree of self-esteem pretty much cover it.

But in an increasingly connected and digital world, the things a student needs to know are indeed changing—fundamental human needs sometimes drastically redressed for an alien modern world. Just as salt allowed for the keeping of meats, the advent of antibiotics made deadly viruses and diseases simply inconvenient, and electricity completely altered when and where we slept and work and played, technology is again changing the kind of “stuff” a student needs to know.

Of course, these are just starters. Such a list really could go on forever.

We Just Can't Keep Up...

We Just Can't Keep Up... | Future Education | Scoop.it

TED is awesome…  I recently watched a TED talk by Eddie Obeng  who spoke about our fast changing world.  His central focus was the idea that the pace at which the world is advancing is exponential 

whereas the pace of learning and education is and has been consistent.  Schools are improving – we just can’t keep up.

 

Consequently, educators are feverishly looking for ways to make schools once-again interesting for kids.

 

One of my favorite progressive educational leaders and thinkers is Sir Ken Robinson@SirKenRobinson.  He gave a TED talk in 2006 that has since been viewed by over 16 million people. 

 

He is an advocate for fostering creativity in children because in the end, it will be creativity that solves the problems of tomorrow. 

 

His concern (shared by many) is that our school systems and institutions are designed around conformity, greatly reducing the ability of educators to foster creativity.
