How Technology Wires the Learning Brain - 0 views

    Kids between the ages of 8 and 18 spend 11.5 hours a day using technology - whether that's computers, television, mobile phones, or video games - and usually more than one at a time. That's a big chunk of their 15 or 16 waking hours. But does that spell doom for the next generation?

    I just came across this chart somewhere online and find it really interesting and worth sharing with you here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. The chart is created by connectedprincipals and features some alternative ways to do "traditional' homework.

  • The three generations of technology enhanced teaching are cognitive/behaviourist, social constructivist and connectivist.
  • Together, technology and pedagogy reveal and develop our human creativity and responsiveness and allow us to learn effectively and enjoyably.
  • that not only do technologies differentially present opportunities to those that use them but also open up new possibilities that did not exist before.
  • ...18 more annotations...
  • Cognitive and behaviourist (CB) pedagogies focus on the way in which education was predominantly defined, practiced and researched during most of the 20th century. Behavioural learning theory is based on the notion that learning occurs when learners adopt new behaviours or demonstrate a change in behaviour as the result of an individual’s response to stimuli. Note that in this definition the focus is on the individual and the necessity for measuring actual behaviours and not attitudes, intentions or capacities.
  • it is clear that materials produced by designers, teachers and even students are being used to supplement if not totally replace commercial-quality media production.
  • The importance of Creative Commons licensing with its capacity for allowing the sharing, while retaining copyright, cannot be underestimated as an enabler of effective distribution and sharing.
  • “contributor problem”: How can contributors be motivated to upload and share their content?
  • Finally, there is increasing attention paid to providing access and editing capabilities to the learners themselves to the learning model that is driving learning sequences presented to them. These Open Learning Models (Bull & Kay, 2010; Kay & Kummerfeld, 2006) increase learner control and understanding of the system.
  • Social constructivist pedagogies are focused on groups of learners, learning together with and from one another
  • arguing that learning is the process of building networks of information, contacts, and resources that are applied to real problems.
  • emergent Learning
  • Connectivism also assumes that information is plentiful and that the learner’s role is not to memorize or even understand everything, but to have the capacity to find, filter and apply knowledge when and where it is needed
  • the Matthew Principle (where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer)
  • Two essential characteristics though define connectivist pedagogies. The first is the need to gain high levels of skill using personal learning networks that provide ubiquitous and on demand access to resources, individuals and groups of potential information and knowledge servers. The second is the focus on creation, as opposed to consumption, of information and knowledge resources.
  • in connectivist models the technology defines the pedagogy.
  • There are many definitions of a PLE and Mohamed Amine Chatti (2010), in connectivist fashion, has published a slide show of many of the most popular definitions.
  • Theory of Emergent Learning (TEL) Kay and Sims (2006) note that individual learners (in addition to designers) are responsible for defining their own learning objectives and activities.
  • Benefitting from social activities and learning within these complex contexts, connectivism relies on more than the classic contructivist group discussion: though strongly social in focus, the emphasis is far more on the individual’s connections with others than with group processes designed to enhance or engender learning.
  • Obviously the focus of connectivism with its inherent demand for students to create and distribute for public review and augmentation, fits well with the final creation level of the revised taxonomy. However before jumping to the conclusion that all learning should be of a connectivist nature so as to achieve these highest levels of cognitive functioning, one must remember the cost and efficiency of each pedagogical model in relationship to the educational outcomes expected. There are many domains of knowledge in which creation of new knowledge is of much less importance than remembering and being able to apply existing knowledge.
  • Bloom’s less well-known taxonomy of affective domains (Krathwohl, Bloom & Masia, 1973). The affective domain begins with willingness to receive and then to respond. This is followed by the ability to construct a value network that leads to informed ethical behaviour that is open to affective response and change induced by others. Quite obviously such valuing is best done through social interaction (constructivism and connectivism) and is informed by interactions among people with varied perspectives and values.
  • It is clear that, whether the learner is alone, part of a learning community or a learning network, learning effectiveness can be greatly enhanced by applying, at a detailed level, an understanding of how people can learn more effectively: Cognitivist, behaviourist, constructivist, and connectivist theories each play an important role.

How to Fuel Students' Learning Through Their Interests | MindShift - 1 views

  • “open source learning” — a variation on inquiry learning or passion-based learning –  is about helping students choose their own learning path
  • classroom centers around the publication and maintenance of students’ personal blogs. The blogs themselves are a requirement, but the content and medium used in many student responses—be it text, video, audio, or some combination—are often the result of students’ own creative vision

Are Libraries the Hackerspaces of the Future? | Contact Un-conference - 0 views

  • Library Turns Hackerspace

    Perhaps you’ve heard the term hackerspace, or something along a similar vein, like makerspace, makerlab, or fab lab. Wikipedia defines it as

    “a location where people with common interests, usually in computers,technologyscience, or digital or electronic art can meet, socialise and/orcollaborate. Hackerspaces can be viewed as open community labs incorporating elements of machine shopsworkshops and/or studios where hackers can come together to share resources and knowledge to build and make things.”

  • How could we accelerate the rate of such hubs forming, where events, community, and DIY production collide? Where do you put them? Who funds them?

  • The other project, LibraryFarm, is a collective farm on ½ acre of public land run on the model of a public library. Anyone can “check out” a plot of land for no cost, plant what you want, and do what you want with your harvest. The idea is to promote “food literacy,” and rediscover the knowledge and empowerment that comes with learning how to grow food. This project is being led by Meg Backus and Thomas Gokey, who taught the “Innovation in Public Libraries” grad seminar at Syracuse University that also led to the above fabrication lab project.
    is "hackerspace" in anyway like mooc space?

    When you go to this website, look for this to get to the recorded session:

    April 9, 2:30-3:30 pm - (please note new time!)
    online session Connections in Online Classes
    Session leader Laura Paciorek writes: Since I started teaching online, I have been exploring the idea of how to connect with students in an online environment. There are six types of connections that I strive to facilitate in my classes. This workshop will highlight those six types of connections and some strategies that may work in fostering those connections. A brief literature review about connections in online courses will be shared as a part of this presentation. Elluminate Recording is here and PowerPoint slides are here. Help us out! If you watch this recording, please do the survey!
