Irving Wladawsky-Berger: The Power of Pull - 3 views

  • “It is no accident that most of these early examples of creation spaces are initially attracting individuals rather than institutions.  Passionate individuals (that’s you) naturally seek out these creation spaces to get better faster, while most institutions are still deeply concerned about protection of knowledge stocks and do not yet see the growing importance of knowledge flows in driving performance improvement.  As passionate individuals engage and experience the performance benefits of participation, they will help to drag institutions more broadly into relevant creation spaces, becoming catalysts for the institutional innovations required for effective participation.”

      Thanks so much Tony it also looks like 'intuitive' flow will become the norm, pre-paving the way for mind transference, of course it's totally serendipitous of you to alert me to this site and I've also been meaning to look at John Seely Brown....if intuitive serendipitous learning does become validated as mainstream this surely is consciousness SHIFT. Then time wont be a problem! We will reach for the solutions and they will be here already. Yes I know its a bigger jump but it's a natural extension and one outcome I already see in my own life. mmm think I'll repost this on the site itself to show my appreciation. This has huge impact on learning but massive for society.

    "We are literally pushed into educational systems designed to anticipate our needs over twelve or more years of schooling and our key needs for skills over the rest of our lives. As we successfully complete this push program, we graduate into firms and other institutions that are organized around push approaches to resource mobilization. Detailed demand forecasts, operational plans, and operational process manuals carefully script the actions and specify the resources required to meet anticipated demand."

Research Summary 3: Teacher PD in ICT « hELPC! - 9 views

  •  
    That it is necessary to shift away from ICT-skills centred PD, towards reflective, pedagogically focused learning, is clear. Unless we, as teachers, can justify using ICT and make pedagogical changes to enhance student outcomes, then efforts to 'teach' ICT will be superficial. Embracing a Communities of Practice model for ICT PD incorporates the ubiquitous recommendations; that ICT PD should be collaborative; ongoing; focused on teacher needs;and facilitate critical discussion amongst colleagues.

Slowness, Wisdom and Change - Practical Theory - 2 views

  • Slowness, Wisdom and Change
  •  
    Better we make the wise decision than the expedient one. Read the older educators... Read Ted Sizer and Deborah Meier and Herb Kohl... and feel the wisdom in their words. They write without hubris, but instead with an acknowledgment of their own flawed humanity. They write with an understand that they cannot be all things to all children, but with the knowledge that they must come as close as they can. I am far from religious, but I am reminded a lot these days of the serenity prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.

    A more likely cause is the autonomous, idiosyncratic, non-collaborative, and non-differentiated teaching practices that largely remain uninformed by research about what it takes to significantly improve student learning and achievement

Technologically Externalized Knowledge and Learning « Connectivism - 2 views

  •  
    Reformers have largely worked within, rather than on, the system of education. Working within the system has resulted in status-quo preservation, even when reformists felt they were being radical. Illich failed to account for how educational institutions are integrated into society. Freire spoke with a humanity and hope that was largely overlooked by a comfortable developed world incapable of seeing the structure and impact of its system. To create and nurture change, a message must not only be true for an era, but it must also resonate with the needs, passions, interests, realities, and hopes of the audience to whom the message is directed.
