3 Tech Challenges That Stand to Undermine the Future of Education

3 Tech Challenges That Stand to Undermine the Future of Education | Learning Futures | Scoop.it
Many of us tend to view the future of education through rose-colored glasses, daydreaming of a Utopian society where all of the education challenges and inequities of the past have been neutralized. I am not saying that the future won’t be beneficial to the field of education, I am just saying that it will not be a panacea. In fact, if we are not careful, the challenges that we presently face in education may become exacerbated in the future or lead to a whole new set of problems. Let’s look at 3 tech challenges that stand to undermine the future of education.

'Education revolution' sees year levels abandoned in 'stage not age' approach to schooling - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

'Education revolution' sees year levels abandoned in 'stage not age' approach to schooling - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) | Learning Futures | Scoop.it
It is a public school with no classrooms, school bells, year levels or exams — as we know them.

Opening next week in Sydney, Lindfield Learning Village promises to break the mould and "change the measures of success", according to its principal.

"The education system we currently have in place was developed over 100 years ago to produce factory workers, and obviously that's not what we need to be producing in this era," said principal Stephanie McConnell, one of the architects of the new education model.

Ms McConnell gave 7.30 an exclusive first look inside the new school, which will open its doors to students from kindergarten to year 10 next week. Eventually it will host students up to year 12.

AI technologies can make instruction more personalised, therefore increasing the effectiveness of education

Education around the world is changing at an incredibly fast pace. Software and devices are as commonplace in classrooms and lecture theatres as whiteboards and overhead projectors once were. The new generation of student is born digital and they are fast adopters of new technologies. The revolution has begun.

Education institutions globally are grappling with three big challenges: Providing quality education, often at scale; ensuring education is accessible to all, including in emerging markets, rural communities and to children with special needs; and reducing the cost of delivery to provide affordable  education.

Trends Shaping Education 2019 | READ online

Trends Shaping Education 2019 | READ online | Learning Futures | Scoop.it

Did you ever wonder whether education has a role to play in preparing our societies for an age of artificial intelligence? Or what the impact of climate change might be on our schools, families and communities? Trends Shaping Education examines major economic, political, social and technological trends affecting education. While the trends are robust, the questions raised in this book are suggestive, and aim to inform strategic thinking and stimulate reflection on the challenges facing education – and on how and whether education can influence these trends. This book covers a rich array of topics related to globalisation, democracy, security, ageing and modern cultures. The content for this 2019 edition has been updated and also expanded with a wide range of new indicators. Along with the trends and their relationship to education, the book includes a new section on future’s thinking inspired by foresight methodologies. This book is designed to give policy makers, researchers, educational leaders, administrators and teachers a robust, non specialist source of international comparative trends shaping education, whether in schools, universities or in programmes for older adults. It will also be of interest to students and the wider public, including parents.

Meet The Climate Generation, Ready And Waiting For A New Green Deal | Learning Futures | Scoop.it

Jan Wisniewski dreams of a better, brighter, greener future. He’s just hoping our political leaders catch up soon. It’s 2019 and I’m 27 years old. I’m a millennial, though I think of myself as part of the climate change generation. In the years since my high school year group was treated to a screening of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth at Hobart’s Village Cinemas, there’s been a lot of talk about climate change. From international discussions at the UNFCCC’s annual conference of the parties to heated exchanges in online comment sections. While we’ve been talking the world has been warming. Us humans still haven’t found a way to stop polluting.

Why Prioritizing Relationships in Schools Matters –

Why Prioritizing Relationships in Schools Matters – | Learning Futures | Scoop.it
A hyper-focus on improving standardized test scores can prevent us from the larger goals of developing learners who can think, communicate, and be contributing members of society. I understand that we have to focus on test scores because they are the measurements and how we are held accountable. I also know that if we continue to do things the way they have always been done, we will get the same results. If we truly value learners as individuals and want students to be able to find and solve problems, communicate effectively, and learn to learn, we can no longer simply prepare kids for a test or for the next grade. We have to rethink how and what we teach in schools to ensure we are creating space to model, guide, and practice the skills that students need to be successful in life, in work, and as contributing citizens

Is Pearson the Kodak of education? –

Is Pearson the Kodak of education? – | Learning Futures | Scoop.it
Assessment is not measurement. I assess my students every single day, but it’s not in what is maybe the conventional sense. Assessment is not a spreadsheet, it’s a conversation.

Via Nik Peachey
Kim Flintoff's insight:
“Of Pearson’s latest plans he says “once again Pearson conflate education with (their) content delivery and (their) measurement systems. They will, I suspect, be massively disrupted and become the Kodak of Education as we realise that context is king rather than content, and that we need new metrics to recognise the things we value today, rather than the things we might have valued yesterday.””

Interesting view of AI and big data.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, January 9, 11:39 AM

Pearson, la otrora editorial inglesa de libros de texto, cuya historia data del siglo XIX se redefine en nuestros tiempos como la compañía de aprendizaje del mundo. Con sus contenidos, ahora digitales, y sus sistemas de evaluación en línea, quieren dar un salto más fuerte y usar la inteligencia artificial y el análisis de Big Data para crear así la piedra filosofal del aprendizaje: brindar de manera instantánea una educación personalizada a cientos de millones de personas. Sin embargo, el problema de estas compañías es que entienden a la educación como un conjunto de procesos que pueden ser optimizados gracias al análisis de millones de datos. Quizás haya algunas competencias que se puedan medir de una manera más automatizable, me imagino por ejemplo aprender algunas rutinas básicas de programación, pero en un mundo donde se requiere una destrucción creativa del modelo educativo, que haga posible que podamos adquirir y medir competencias complejas como el pensamiento crítico, creatividad, pensamiento sistémico, capacidad de autoaprendizaje, comunicación empática y persuasión, entre otros; lo primero que deberíamos hacer es discutir cómo se diseñan nuevas experiencias de aprendizaje que se adapten al contexto y al discente y que hagan posible el alcanzar estas competencias de manera eficiente, sin el uso de sofisticadas tecnologías, para luego optimizarlas y/o extender su campo de acción con el apoyo de las tecnologías exponenciales.

A life of tests is no preparation for the tests of life | Aeon Essays | Learning Futures | Scoop.it
The fact of the matter is this: when students are helped to become more confident and articulate about the process of learning itself, they do better, not worse, on the tests. Young people who have been helped to know how to think and persevere take these strengths with them into the examination hall, as well as onto the sports field or the concert stage. With a hundred small adjustments to the milieu of schools and classrooms, we can produce young people who are more confident, capable and enthusiastic about engaging intelligently with difficult things. When we articulate the virtues of uncertainty in clear and concrete terms, we find we can teach in a way that prepares young people both for a life of tests and the tests of life.

2019 Global Learning Landscape | HolonIQ | Learning Futures | Scoop.it

About the Learning Landscape
The 2019 Global Learning Landscape is an open source taxonomy for mapping innovation in learning and talent. Combining machine learning with a global community of experts, we analyzed over 50,000 organizations, 500,000 apps and considered the 3 million schools, colleges and universities around the world. Using the classical top-down / bottom-up design methodology, the 2019 Global Learning Landscape was built around 50 core clusters along a learning journey. From knowledge and curriculum to engagement, assessment, workforce and talent, the Global Learning Landscape is inspired by design thinking, following the learner from early childhood to lifelong learning.

Licenced under Creative Commons and as an open source project, the taxonomy is available for anyone to support their own work in education innovation, to identify an area of focus, or to locate their organization and their peers on the landscape.

A global community of educators and innovators can track and contribute to the taxonomy’s ongoing development. Following an agile approach, suggestions, ideas and iterations on enhancements will be open and available on GitHub, which provides a robust 21st Century way of sharing and curating the taxonomy, where anyone can contribute, share ideas or transparently trace each step of the landscape's evolution. Join us on GitHub to keep updating the Global Learning Landscape.

“We all do what’s best for children.”: The Banality of Educative Statements

Not all educators are exemplary — the act of going into this profession and doing whatever (even if you’re putting forth huge amounts of effort) should not make one shielded from criticism under the guise of heroism.


Essentially, a leader should not waver to banal statements to make everyone feel safe. In the same way a band shouts the current location in their concert, releasing a quote that celebrates all teachers, regardless of what they’re doing, is guaranteed to gain support of the crowd. But there’s many issues — a degree of uncertainty and risk is a central tenant in progressive education and some will achieve while others falter. However, a safety manifest in staying safe perpetuates traditional teaching which is not what’s best for children. Is it wrong to criticize an educator who actually isn’t doing their best?
