Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success

Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success | Learning Trends | Scoop.it
This article was written by Nichole Dobo Many people are seeking the “secret sauce” for digital learning. As educators expand the use of education technology, they often face a tricky balance. These tools offer the possibility for innovation – trying something new in a quest to improve teaching and learning. But technology isn’t cheap, and the risk of failure looms. To assure success, many educators try to find and follow a recipe for digital learning. But many crucial ingredients can’t be found in a case study about “best practices,” said Julie Evans, the CEO of Project Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization that advocates …

Like other aspects of teaching, how teachers and students use computers, software, and social media is a broad conversation. We use words like education and technology as if they mean something they do not, school and digital tools respectively.

To educate means to lead etymologically. That means teaching is leading and helping students figure out what is appropriate use of tools. Technology is forming wisdom over time so the craftsperson (teacher) can have a conversation with, about, and through their tools. They grow to understand how tools limit and expand their teaching.
Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 25, 2017 5:08 PM
How do you implement technology without trying it out first? Using technology or trying out new things can be expensive for school, so finding something that can be tested first is the best option. This resource talks about how there is no right way for digital learning, but there are best practices by some teacher which can help. This could help a principal by having teachers collaborate with the technology they use and share and teach other staff on what they know.

Creating the Tech Leaders of Tomorrow: How to Inspire Your Students to Lead in the Digital Age by MATTHEW LYNCH

Creating the Tech Leaders of Tomorrow: How to Inspire Your Students to Lead in the Digital Age by MATTHEW LYNCH | Learning Trends | Scoop.it
There’s no denying that the digital age has transformed education. However, education in this time of technological transformation needs to extend beyond the question of “How can we incorporate technology and digital tools into the classroom?” and into the realm of “How can we better prepare today’s students to be leaders in technology tomorrow?” Successfully preparing students to become future technology leaders requires a good deal more than simply equipping students to go off to college to study engineering, computer science, mathematics, or another technology-related field. It requires fostering curiosity, collaborative skills, and a willingness to try — and fail …

Good article - goes beyond the technology issue to the human concern

Natalia Jimenez's curator insight, April 6, 2018 10:30 AM
There is clear evidence that technology has changed the world where we are today. For that reason, the importance of including technological tools in the classrooms has increased considerably. Moreover, it is important to say that students need more than just know and use these technological tools; they need to develop some skills such as collaboration, willingness to try and fail among others in order to become the the leaders in technology of the future. Also, one of the main purpose of the teachers is to foster curiosity in their learners and inspire them to participate in the digital era.

This article contains very important information for my future work as a teacher since it shows me how I can inspire my students to take an active participation not only in their learning process but also in the digital era in which they can share different knowledge and also, they can receive feedback about their work. Now, I am aware that including digital tools in my classes is not enough; I need to find ways to encourage my students to be future digital leaders.

Hip-Hop Coding: Exploring the Connections Between Computational Thinking and Hip-Hop Culture

Hip-Hop Coding: Exploring the Connections Between Computational Thinking and Hip-Hop Culture | Learning Trends | Scoop.it

Since its 1970s Bronx origins, hip-hop culture has been driven by youth and the appropriation of technologies and cultural materials for creative expression. 


Although terms such as looping, remixing, and sequencing are common to the language of both hip-hop production and coding, the relationships between these two techno-cultural worlds have largely remained unexamined. One of the highlights of the Hip-Hop and Scratch Coding Summit that took place last month in Cleveland, Ohio was precisely the exploration of those relationships through a series of hands-on activities and conversations with teachers, after-school facilitators, librarians, and hip-hop educators from all over the U.S.

"If there is a makerspace in your school, it may be down the hall, in the library, or in another building. If there is someone other than the teacher managing the makerspace or there is a schedule for the school, your kids may only be able to use it once a week or month. Some makerspace activities may be focusing on how to use the resources available and may not be connecting the activities to the curriculum or around a real world problem. If this is how the makerspace is set up in your school, then your kids may not have access to the resources, materials, and tools when they need them, especially for STEM or STEAM.

In deciding what resources you need based on the learners you have, you may first need to determine how your learners learn best, what projects you plan to do, how you can set up a makerspace in your classroom, and much more. This is why we decided to create a planning tool for makerspaces in the classroom for you using the Design Thinking Process and Universal Design for Learning®."

Problem solving and critical thinking are essential skills in teaching and learning. Dewey's quote is right on. When we learn and teach, it is not as spectators. We are active participants performing in ways that respond to problems we are trying to solve and re-solve. David Bohm wrote that paradox is the way to think about what we call problems. As Parker Palmer puts it, there is a continuing tension in paradox.

Digital learning opens the door for authentic learning experiences for diverse populations worldwide.  Institutions that embrace online and/or blended learning environments offer more to the world as more people can become educated while maintaining work and family life. Online learning is shifting from solely asynchronous (learner-instructor not in real time such email and discussion posts) to synchronous (learner-instructor and peer-peer contact in real time such as a webcast). The right mix of pedagogy and technology increases accessibility and flexibility, while offering a quality, authentic learning experience. Very democratizing!

6 strategies for Differentiated Instruction in Project-Based Learning

6 strategies for Differentiated Instruction in Project-Based Learning | Learning Trends | Scoop.it
Project-based learning (PBL) naturally lends itself to differentiated instruction. By design, it is student-centered, student-driven, and gives space for teachers to meet the needs of students in a variety of ways. PBL can allow for effective differentiation in assessment as well as daily management and instruction. PBL experts will tell you this, but I often hear teachers ask for real examples, specifics to help them contextualize what it "looks like" in the classroom. We all need to try out specific ideas and strategies to get our brains working in a different context. Here are some specific differentiation strategies to use during a PBL project.

The definition of Combination Learning

The definition of Combination Learning | Learning Trends | Scoop.it
The big idea of combination learning is shifting the focus from content to the process of learning.

Combination Learning allows teachers and students to work together to “mash” bits and pieces of learning to design entirely unique and personalized learning scenarios. The result is a flexible, self-directed learning environment where the teacher acts as facilitator and mentor, and the student is at the center of–and entirely accountable for–their own progress and performance.

It can be as simple or complex as the circumstances call for. It can be standards-based or open-ended; technology-based or based on in-person human interaction; project-based, game-based, rigorous, supportive, etc. In that way it is more of a shell or template for teachers and students to fill as necessary.

These 2 student-focused technologies can bring higher ed into the future

These 2 student-focused technologies can bring higher ed into the future | Learning Trends | Scoop.it

Learning organizations that offer classes online, such as Khan Academy, and massive open online courses (MOOCs) are disrupting traditional institutions, in part because they give students control of when, where and how they receive education. In addition, these organizations and courses more easily scale with growth than traditional lectures or labs.

Increasing access to ongoing, on-demand training and certification is key for current and future student bodies, which look very different than they have in years past. According to the NCES, nontraditional students—that is, students who may be parents, over the age of 22 and/or financially independent—now make up about 75 percent of the undergraduate population. These students are less likely to live on campus and more likely to have full-time jobs, making their lifestyles less conducive to the traditional college or university schedule.
