Education 3.0 and the Pedagogy (Andragogy, Heutagogy) of Mobile Learning | User Generat... - 2 views

  • Education 3.0 is a connectivist, heutagogical approach to teaching and learning.  The teachers, learners, networks, connections, media, resources, tools create a a unique entity that has the potential to meet individual learners’, educators’, and even societal needs.  Many resources for Education 3.0 are literally freely available for the taking.
  • Most schools are still living within and functioning through an Education 1.0 model.  They are focusing on an essentialist-based curriculum with related ways of teaching and testing.
  • Taking this one step further or from another angle, moving from Education 1.0 to Education 3.0 can be compared to moving from Pedagogy/Essentialism/Instructivism to Heutagogy/Constructivism/Connectivism

  • The heutagogical, connectivist orientation is closely aligned with Education 3.0. In a heutagogical approach to teaching and learning, learners are highly autonomous and self-determined and emphasis is placed on development of learner capacity and capability. The renewed interest in heutagogy is partially due to the ubiquitousness of Web 2.0, and the affordances provided by the technology. With its learner-centered design, Web 2.0 offers an environment that supports a heutagogical approach, most importantly by supporting development of learner-generated content and learner self-directedness in information discovery and in defining the learning path.  Source: http://www.irrodl.org/index.php/irrodl/article/view/1076
  •   In other words, they can engage in self-determined and self-driven learning where they are not only deciding the direction of their learning journey but they can also produce content that adds value and worth to the related content area or field of study.
  • Choosing the Teaching Orientation
  • It should not be as simple as stating that one, as an educator, uses one teaching orientation over another.  Educators need to examine what they are teaching and the population to whom they are teaching.  For example, procedural knowledge such as how to do first aid or fix a car; or a fixed body of knowledge such as human anatomy (for the medical field) or the study of law is typically best taught through a more teacher directed, “pedagogical” style. It becomes teaching with intentionality and strategically using the teaching and learning philosophies and approaches to reach desired outcomes.
  • The Pedagogy of Mobile Learning
  • With the idea that pedagogy is in line with a instructivist-essentialism method of teaching-learning, mobile learning in this category typically falls into the dissemination of content knowledge via apps. 
  • I use a simple criteria to determine their efficacy, “Would the learner choose to use the app if given the choice or use it during his/her free time?
  • Many project-based learning characteristics (authentic, real world problems; networked learning; use of collaborative digital tools) would fit under the category of the andragogy of mobile learning.
  • The Andragogy of Mobile Learning
  • The Heutagogy of Mobile Learning
  • The learners in a heutagogy of mobile learning environment
  • Determine what they want to learn and develop their own learning objectives
  • Use their own mobile learning devices and technologies to decide how they will learn.
  • Form their own learning communities possibly using social networking tool
  • Utilize the expertise of the educator and other members of their learning communities to suggest and introduce content-related resources.
  • Utilize the expertise of the educator and other members of their learning communities to suggest Web 2.0 and other online tools for that the students could possibly use to demonstrate and produce learning artifacts.
  • Demonstrate their learning through methods and means that work best for them.
  • Take the initiative to seek feedback from the instructor and their peers.  It is their choice to utilize that feedback or not.
  • Forming their Own Interest-Driven Personal Learning Networks (PLNs)
  • Curating
  • Developing a broad array of possible course assignments

Youth Perspectives on Tech in Schools: From Mobile Devices to Restrictions an... - 3 views

    "Abstract:      This research brief is a contribution by the Youth and Media team at the Berkman Center to its Student Privacy Initiative, which seeks to explore the opportunities and challenges that may arise as educational institutions adopt cloud computing technologies. In order to understand the implications of cloud services for student privacy more holistically, it might be helpful to examine how technology that is already implemented in academic contexts is used by youth and to explore how students feel about current practices. Towards this goal and informed by our recent research, the brief aims to make visible the youth perspective regarding the use of digital technology in the academic context, with focus on privacy-relevant youth practices, limitations on access to information, and youth's relation to educators in a high-tech environment. The brief includes insights and quotes gathered through a series of in-person focus groups as well as data from a questionnaire administered to all focus group participants. In addition, it highlights in a few instances additional research and data."

    "Presented by Marie Bjerede, Founder, e-Mergents and Project Manager, Learning Un-Limited,  with Tzaddi Bond, 5th Grade teacher from Portland, OR With educational technology, it's not about the technology…except when it is. Join us on October 17th for our community's next webinar where we'll see how the availability of Android mobile devices for every student in Tzaddi Bond's 5th grade classroom removed obstacles to independent learning. Marie Bjerede, Founder of e-Mergents and Project Manager at Learning Untethered, will discuss how Tzaddi's students shifted towards a greater sense of agency, deeper learning, and more sophisticated achievement. Tzaddi will share how she was able to make bigger shifts in practice towards a "guide on the side" model of teaching and learning that would not have been possible without the Android devices. During the session, they also will describe the practices and policies that drove improved student outcomes. Co-hosted by edWeb.net and CoSN Sponsored by AT&T and the USC Rossier School of Education Visit the Mobile Learning Explorations community"
