Is Brick & Mortar Education Going to be Left in the Dust by Online Learning &... - 52 views

    "Cognitive theories of education that anchor approaches like Constructivism have been suggested as preferable approaches for many decades. Unfortunately traditional educational institutions, as well as certification bodies and most notably political administrations have long favored didactic instruction (basically drill and kill, lecture-centric approaches to education) because the results of these methods are far simpler to track and report. "
    This quote explains what I've been trying to articulate for a while.

Will Richardson: My Kids are Illiterate. Most Likely, Yours Are Too - 10 views

    • Beverly Ozburn
      I wonder if most parents (and even some teachers) even know what this means.  Sometimes I think we are too entrenched in old-school ways of thinking students need to know and love classics instead of understanding how literature is a reflection of the times and using the classics as mentor pieces for creating something which reflects here and now!
  • kids need to be in systems that care for them and are focused on literacy they will need to be successful in their lives instead of being focused primarily on standardizing their way to "high student achievement" based on a metric that is growing less and less relevant each day
    • Beverly Ozburn
      We need to really look at our definition of the word achievement!  Do we mean they have achieved a high score by regurgitating info/facts?  Do we mean they understand something and can apply that understanding in a new and meaningful way?

  • I'm mad that the "big" conversations around "reform" in education right now all revolve around basically doing what we've been doing for the past 100 years only "better," and that we'll get there by incentivizing teachers to teach for a test.
  • That is their reality; it wasn't ours. The NCTE knows it.
    • Beverly Ozburn
      Just like we recognize that times are different from when my parents attended a 1-room school or when there less than 50-100 in a graduating class in a whole town, we need to recognize that times today are different.

New era of Workplace Learning | Centre for Learning & Performance Technologies - 0 views

  • 1 – Encourage and support individuals’ and teams’ self-sufficiency to address their own learning and performance problems.
  • So here are 5 ways that L&D can become involved:
  • 2 – Help develop autonomous workers
  • ...4 more annotations...
  • 3 – Provide performance consulting services, where individuals and teams need help in addressing their own learning and performance problems
  • 4 – Rethink the use of learning tools and system
  • 5 – Help to develop an open, enabling culture for working and learning
  • It is clear that formal training is not going disappear overnight, but it is also becoming apparent that we are at the beginning of a fundamental shift in the way that both learning and working is happening in organisations. This should not be seen as a threat to the L&D profession, but as an opportunity to evolve the profession to take on the new challenges it offers. The first step on the path will be to become immersed in the new social media tools that are underpinning this change. Social Learning is not something you just talk or read about; it’s something you do!
