Thinking and learning in the postnormal era - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    We live in a time of chaos, complexity and contradiction. (Sardar, 2010 [1]) Where rapid changes and transformations through technology, politics, globalisation and the climate, conspire against normality (Friedman, 2016 [2]) These times demand a fresh approach to education, one that provides learners with the thinking dispositions they need to turn challenges into opportunities, to connect their learning to their passions and emerge from their years of formal education as self-navigating life-long learners.

How might we prepare our students for an unknown future? - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    How might we prepare our students for an unknown future? If we accept that we are living in times of rapid change and that the world our children will inhabit is likely to be very different from the world of today, or perhaps more importantly, different from the work our current education system was designed to serve, what should we do to ensure our children are able to thrive?

Four perspectives on truth, normality and education in times of rapid change - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    We are living in interesting, frightening and rapidly changing times. Where rapid changes and transformations through technology, politics, globalisation and the climate, conspire against normality. These times demand a fresh approach to education, one that provides learners with the thinking dispositions they need to turn challenges into opportunities.  "All that was 'normal' has now evaporated; we have entered postnormal times, the in-between period where old orthodoxies are dying, new ones have not yet emerged, and nothing really makes sense." But what thinking might guide us through this time of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity?

Why such a rapid pace of change? - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    I am currently reading "Thank you for being late: An optimist's guide to thriving in the age of accelerations" and have found in this the answer to these questions. In essence we are confronting two types of change, one that we have always faced and one that is unique to our current times.

Assessing Student Learning - five practical guides - 4 views

  • Start small The basic advice here is, initially, aim for quality rather than quantity. A complete overhaul of the entire curriculum may not be the best place to start with introducing on-line assessment. Many academic staff have successfully started with an on-line assessment task that is a relatively minor proportion of the assessment for a subject. That way, any technical, educational or other difficulties that might arise can be resolved without the risk of seriously disadvantaging students. If might also be useful to start with formative rather than summative assessment on-line. Any efforts made towards this end will be useful in themselves in providing feedback to students and therefore assisting learning, as well as in providing a ‘trial run’ for the more ambitious objective of putting summative assessment

      Three useful guiding principles when starting to use on-line assessmentStart with clear objectives; Start Small-use formative first; Start where success is most likely
  • While most students have access to computers at home, some do not – does the design of the task ensure that this latter group is not disadvantaged?
  • Does the on-line assessment assess anything that can’t be assessed as well (or more effectively) in a traditional format

  • Has the highly valued and expected flexibility of time-of-day access, pace of work and time spent on task been incorporated
  • Is student learning related to subject content knowledge, understanding and skills being assessed rather than, or in addition to, ICT skills
  • If relevant, have opportunities for students to demonstrate creativity in their submissions
  • Where necessary, is the approach chosen to verify individual student performance/submission reliable
  • Has the opportunity to plagiarise been eliminated or at least minimised
  • Has the tendency, particularly where automated responses are incorporated, to focus on lower level cognitive skills been avoided or at least, supplemented with assessment of higher order learning

  • It is wise to design assessment tasks that require the students to integrate the material they have learned in the subject with their own interpretations of that material.
  • The use of on-line tools to assess learner progress toward subject objectives can take many forms including: Electronic submission of written assignments Parallel print and on-line assessment options where students are given the choice of whether and how they use on-line tools in assessment tasks Publication of documents on the web Labelling of on-line diagrams Manipulation of on-line graphs Completion of on-line quizzes Completion of short-answer and multiple choice questions On-line exams with monitored and controlled start and stop times Any formative or summative task carried out in a web-based environment.

  • There is some evidence that on-line assessment, unless carefully planned, can encourage students to focus on lower level cognitive skills.
    • tunstallmath678
       
      Self checking assessments encourage some students to guess the answer then click new answers at  random until the correct answer is found.  
  • If the potential for the use of interactive resources has not been realised and the verification protection is set up so that there is little difference between taking an exam in paper-and-pencil format and taking it on-line, it may be difficult for students to see the point in on-line examinations.
  • Have greater opportunities been provided for students to practise their knowledge and skills than are available in traditional formats?
  • Have the opportunities for diagnostic, continuous, case-based and/or formative assessment of student learning been taken?
  • Have question banks and random selection of items been used, where appropriate?
  • ‘How will the on-line assessment add to the learning experience for students?’
  • The on-line assessment should also allow students to communicate their understandings and allow the provision of feedback to students on their efforts to these ends.

    Phil Hill is an independent educational technology consultant and analyst. He has published articles with Educase and also is a speaker. He has gained experience in technology by working with IT projects for software development companies and has supported various universities with IT implementation. These various roles provide the experience to successfully evaluate various Educational Delivery Models. This article was chosen to support my interest in personal learning environments which according to the 2011 Horizon Report, is a growing trend in online education. Phil Hill in his article examines the various models that have been used over the years starting in 1994 in regards to "access, affordability, and personalized learning in higher education" (Hill, 2012). In his article he examines the following models "ad hoc online courses and programs, fully online programs, Schools-as-a-Service, educational partnerships, competency-based education, blended/hybrid courses and the flipped classroom, and MOOCs" (Hill, 2012). He provides links to institutions, businesses, and colleges that use the types of models he describes. These include the University Wisconsin System (http://www.wisc .edu/) and other institutions studied in the Certification Program at University of Wisconsin-Stout. The newest model is called MOOCs which are free courses to anyone with an internet access. The leading institutions are Stanford, MIT, and Harvard. According to Hill (2012) this is significant because other institutions will need to consider online models and to lower costs for students to remain competitive. There will be rapid change in how higher education is delivered to students which is not common occurrence for traditional institutions. Just as personalized learning environments is a new emergence or trend, online courses are relatively new especially MOOCs which are free.
