Rethinking Time to see Education as a Lifelong Journey - Lessons from Blueback - The Le... - 0 views

  •  
    Blueback is a beautiful metaphor for life and particularly of the life we live in schools. When looked at close up, with an eye on the details, the experience of school is one of passing and recurring cycles. When looked at from a distance, with an eye on the whole, there are elements of constancy, the throughlines which bring meaning to our experience and which have as their consequence the residuals of education.

How to Build Your Makerspace | EdSurge Guides - 0 views

  •  
    "Learning by making has been around since long before edtech-just think about what the adventurous explorers or intrepid settlers of yore would have thought of "Do-It-Yourself." But with thousands of kid-friendly tech tools and a whole World Wide Web of resources out there, creative, interesting opportunities for learning-by-making abound for everyone. Okay, so with all those resources, where should you start to build a makerspace? Here at EdSurge, we've rolled up our sleeves, put on our protective goggles, and built a Maker Guide from scratch, just for you."

Letting how we choose to learn inform our teaching - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    Think of a time when you were completely immersed in a learning challenge. A time when you became aware of the need to master a new skill or concept. A situation that took you outside of your comfort zone, when there were times that you became frustrated, when you thought of quitting, downed tools and walked away, but came back time and time again. Maybe it was a problem you had to solve. Maybe it was a challenge you wanted to overcome.

    "We should all be very, very worried about this. In fact, I wanted to make the title of this article "Nine Things Teachers Need if We Don't Want a Dystopian Future in Which America's Children Are a Pack of Raging, Illiterate Wildlings," but my editor said it was too long."

Why we fear data and how our perception can change. - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    Data occupies a somewhat curious place within education. Mention it to teachers and you tend to get one of two responses. One group will roll their eyes and with great sarcasm how data is "so exciting". The other group responds with something akin to "actually I quite like data" indicating that experience has shown them that they are members of a small group. The question is why do some people find data to be a useful and fascinating tool while others see it as a good method for inducing sleep?

    In the contemporary classroom, there is much greater consideration of what the learner does in partnership with their teacher so that they develop the capacity to learn. Classroom routines and structures are designed to engage the learner in a rich process of dialogical learning.

News and Media Literacy Parent Concern | Common Sense Media - 0 views

  •  
    "Media literacy is critical for kids and teens whose exposure to fake news, political satire, and scary news is greater than ever. With Common Sense Media's digital literacy resources, parents can help kids fact-check the news, determine reliable sources, and learn to separate fact from fiction. Learn the how's and why's of explaining the news to kids, the impact of social media on the news, and even how to decode online advertising. These information-literacy skills will help kids think critically, resist advertising pressure, and become smart consumers."

How might we confront the challenges of time and "the system"? - The Learner's Way - 2 views

  •  
    Two forces seem to present the most significant obstacle to educators hoping to achieve these illustrious goals for and with their learners. The first is time, the second is "the system". Together these two factors act as a bulwark to change; the constraints within which progress is able to occur but only to the point that it strikes against the seemingly immutable obstacles.

    "The Chronicle recently released a special report, "The New Generation of Students: How Colleges Can Recruit, Teach, and Serve Gen Z," drawing on demographic trends, surveys, front-line observations, and an expanding array of books and experts to examine the mind-sets and motivations of Gen Zers and describe how colleges can best serve them.

Colleges Grapple With Teaching the Technology and Ethics of A.I. - The New York Times - 0 views

  •  
    "It had only been three years since Professor Blanton started the class, but as artificial intelligence moves from the stuff of dystopian fantasies - robots run amok - to the reality of everyday use, universities around the country are grappling with the best ways to teach it. This year, Carnegie Mellon said it became the first university in the country to offer a separate undergraduate A.I. degree through its College of Computer Science. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology last month announced plans to establish a college for A.I., backed by $1 billion in investments. "

Affordable and At-Scale - 0 views

  •  
    "The promises of technologies and practices have fallen short more often than not. Just seven years ago, I was part of the early MOOC movement and felt the pulsating potential of teaching thousands of students around the world in a single class. The "year of the MOOC" was declared in 2012. Three years later, skeptics declared that the MOOC had died an ignominious death with high "failure" rates and relatively little recognition by employers. However, the skeptics were too impatient, misunderstood the nature of MOOCs and lacked the vision of those at Georgia Tech, the University of Illinois, Arizona State University, Coursera, edX and scores of other institutions that have persevered in building upon MOOCs' premises to develop high-quality, affordable courses, certificates and now, degrees at scale. No, these degrees are not free, but they are less than half the cost of on-campus versions. No, they are not massive in the hundreds of thousands, but they are certainly at large scale with many thousands enrolled. In computer science, the success is felt across the country. Georgia Tech alone has enrolled 10,000 students over all in its online master's program and is adding thousands of new students each semester in a top 10-ranked degree program costing less than $7,000. Georgia Tech broke the new ground through building collaborations among several partners. Yet, that was just the beginning, and many leading universities have followed. Coursera now offers a dozen online degrees from top universities at half the normal tuition or less. Eight more degrees are currently offered through edX."

The role of AI in education and the changing US workforce - 0 views

  •  
    "Editor's Note: This report is part of "A Blueprint for the Future of AI," a series from the Brookings Institution that analyzes the new challenges and potential policy solutions introduced by artificial intelligence and other emerging technologies. The growth of artificial intelligence (AI) and emerging technologies (ET) is poised to reshape the workforce.[1] While the exact impact of AI and ET is unclear, experts expect that many jobs currently performed by humans will be performed by robots in the near future, and at the same time, new jobs will be created as technology advances. These impending changes have important implications for the field of education. Schools must prepare students to remain competitive in the labor market, and postsecondary institutions must provide students and displaced workers with relevant education and retraining opportunities. Innovations in technology will also create new tools to support educators, students, and others seeking retraining and employment."
