La escuela del mañana, por Francesco Tonucci - 2 views

  •  
    El último módulo de este curso "OpenKnowledge Changing the Global Course of Learning" se centra en el pasado y futuro del Conocimiento Abierto. Desde aquí, he querido compartir las reflexiones de Francesco Tonucci hacia la escuela del futuro, donde, entre sus puntos importantes, evita también el uso de libros de texto y aulas cerradas y propone una escuela democrática, participativa y colaborativa, con aprendizaje por descubrimiento y pensamiento crítico capaz de formar a personas felices. Promueve un aprendizaje basado en proyectos no centrados en libros de textos estancos, sino construyendo el material o buscándolo entre los recursos que hoy día tenemos disponible. En una concepción de escuela como la de Tonucci, precisamente que la información pueda ser de acceso libre para todos permite reforzar la idea de una escuela nueva formando a personas felices y competentes.

    I think technology has very important role that we should mention. everything that we mentioned above is possible because of technology revolution. and here is the thing; the low-developing countries is the places that need education the most but people in those countries have minimum access to technology like internet and computer. So in this case, can open education really change the world?

The Crisis in Higher Education | MIT Technology Review - 1 views

  •  
    A hundred years ago, higher education seemed on the verge of a technological revolution. The spread of a powerful new communication network-the modern postal system-had made it possible for universities to distribute their lessons beyond the bounds of their campuses. Anyone with a mailbox could enroll in a class.
  •  
    This article provides a clear overview of the evolution of higher education along with the rapid development of technology during the past 100 year, and raises the issue whether today's networked education model has posted threat to higher education. Today's the rapid development of Internet and social networks have changed the way we learn, access information and connect with others. The emergence and popularity of MOOCs and various social media have brought a new learning model, connected learning, which is largely used in university and college courses. It expands learners' opportunities of learning, and brings them huge convenience to access information, share thoughts, and communicated with learners from world wide on the same topic. Learning in the current information age subverted the way we learn in traditional learning models, and sometimes caused problems. But I think it's normal for a new thing to cause problems, but as long as we figure out ways to overcome the problems and best utilize the new learning model and resource, it will bring us huge opportunities.

Smartphones: Finding a Balance - 0 views

  •  
    In this article, Newman states that smartphones are prominent on campus nowadays. According to the survey that he has mentioned in the article, there are 59% of Tam students own smartphones; and 61% of them think that smartphones do waste their time even though there are 81% of them think that smartphones have made their life easier. Thus is, although most of the smartphone users believe that smartphones do bring them lots of convenience in life, most of them also agrees that smartphone are wasting their time in life especially in users always spend too much time on the smartphone apps and some of them think that smartphones have put a hindrance to human communication as it mentions in the article that "smartphones put a wall between people and the emotions they have". I feel like using smartphone is kinda of a trend in university right now. People can use their phone to search, download and read articles through the phone. Finding a balance with yourself and technoloy is important, however finding a balance for the publisher and technology is also important as knowledge has been quite open access to people on the internet right now.
