Local Wisdom versus Global Assessments - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    A significant shift continues to occur within global education markets. It is signified by the manner in which it makes sense to speak of a global education market. It is driven by neo-liberalism and the expansion of markets into all aspects of our lives and it is made possible by manipulation of the third messaging system within the educational triad of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment. It is a drive towards accountable, comparable and productive education systems fine-tuned to maximise the return on investment and provide industry with the workforce it desires. What must be asked is how does this trend impact students and are these the forces that should be driving change in our education systems?

Online Learning (Rowman & Littlefield Education) - 3 views

  • "Online education programs at the high school, undergraduate, and graduate levels represent one of the fastest growing trends in education today. However, online classes are completely different from any other educational endeavor and require a new set of skills. Bowman, who currently teaches online undergraduate and graduate courses, and her fellow contributors provide an excellent down-to-earth guide for anyone who is thinking about or participating in an online education program. This well-written and understandable book covers some theories of learning styles but focuses on the nuts-and-bolts skills needed to be successful. Each chapter explores a particular aspect of learning online and gives practical advice about how to participate successfully in an online learning environment. Verdict: Bowman and the other contributors have several years' experience helping students learn online, and their perspectives make this a practical and helpful guide to a prevalent and growing practice."— June 2010, Library Journal Starred Review

On their multimedia records of teaching practice, you can find videos of teaching, examples of lesson plans, practitioner reflections and narratives, images of student work, and many other documents of teaching and learning.

Culture, Change and the Individual - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    A recent post by George Couros (author of The innovators Mindset) posed an interesting question about the role that culture plays in shaping the trajectory of an organisation. The traditional wisdom is that culture trumps all but George points to the role that individuals play in shaping and changing culture itself. Is culture perhaps less resilient than we are led to imagine and is it just a consequence of the individuals with the greatest influence? Or, is something else at play here?

The New Wild West: Teens Navigating Ethical Decisions Online without a Sheriff | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning - 1 views

  • 11.16.09 | There are two definitions for “mentor” on dictionary.com. 1 – A wise and trusted counselor or teacher. 2 – An influential senior sponsor or supporter. Together they paint a picture of how most cultures perceive of mentors—someone older (parent, teacher, coach), with wisdom gained through life experience. On the Internet, however, that formula has been turned upside down. “[Online] mentors don’t need to be older, they need to be more sophisticated,” says Harvard Graduate School of Education professor Howard Gardner, a principal investigator at Harvard’s Good Play Project. “Ten to 13 year olds can be mentors about how to play a game.”

  • as T&D budgets begin to grow again, more attention will be given to when training should be in person, when it should be remote, and when it should be blended.
  • the challenge will be how best to use technology, especially digital platforms that promote collaborative, global learning.
  • In some respects, technology can create more problems because everyone assumes that since they are using the same technology, they are operating in the same environment, while the technology often masks the underlying cultural differences in today’s increasingly global virtual workforce.
  • lack of cultural intelligence is prevalent.
  • very few corporations with training and development departments that have developed effective curricula to build the cultural competence necessary to lead in a global economy.
  • Going forward, training and development departments must:

  • critical skills necessary to lead globally.
  • Be proactive and visionary
  • Leverage, yet understand the limitations of, technology.
  • Optimize every dollar, deciding strategically
  • Define and develop the next generation of leaders.
  • Be part of the global and strategic mission of the organization.
  • They must be better than Google.
  • must equip companies that increasingly are challenged to accelerate leaders without much time and experience to develop their talent. And they must take the lead.
