Skolbibliotek_hur ser det ut_2016. "Not a Theory of Everything" – On Cognitive Load Theory and the Complexity of Learning. Economist. WHEN education fails to keep pace with technology, the result is inequality.


Without the skills to stay useful as innovations arrive, workers suffer—and if enough of them fall behind, society starts to fall apart. That fundamental insight seized reformers in the Industrial Revolution, heralding state-funded universal schooling. Later, automation in factories and offices called forth a surge in college graduates. The combination of education and innovation, spread over decades, led to a remarkable flowering of prosperity. Today robotics and artificial intelligence call for another education revolution. Unfortunately, as our special report in this issue sets out, the lifelong learning that exists today mainly benefits high achievers—and is therefore more likely to exacerbate inequality than diminish it. Machines or learning The classic model of education—a burst at the start and top-ups through company training—is breaking down. At the same time on-the-job training is shrinking.

Konferensen ägde rum vid Münchenbryggeriet i Stockholm under 11-12 oktober. 10 Tips to Differentiate using Assistive Technology. Internet learning boosts performance by seven years, Sugata Mitra study finds. Pupils can perform at more than seven years above their expected academic level by using the internet, a pioneering study has concluded.

Internet learning boosts performance by seven years, Sugata Mitra study finds

Professor Sugata Mitra found that eight- and nine-year-olds who were allowed to do online research before answering GCSE questions remembered what they had learned three months later when tested under exam conditions. Now the Newcastle University academic is giving undergraduate-level exams to 14-year-olds, and has told TES that these students are also achieving results far beyond their chronological age. Professor Mitra, whose famous Hole in the Wall experiment showed how children in a Delhi slum could learn independently if given access to the internet, argues that his latest work in the UK could challenge the entire exam system. A reliance on testing memory means that other cognitive skills are not being adequately stretched, he believes.

What You Miss When You Take Notes on Your Laptop. Even in my relatively short foray into office life, I notice that few people bring a pen and notebook to meetings.

What You Miss When You Take Notes on Your Laptop

I’ve been told that over the years, the spiral notebooks and pens once prevalent during weekly meetings have been replaced with laptops and slim, touch-screen tablets. I suppose it makes sense. In a demanding new age of technology, we are expected to send links, access online materials, and conduct virtual chats while a meeting is taking place. We want instant gratification, and sending things after the meeting when you’re back at your desk feels like too long to wait.

It seems that digital note-taking is just more convenient. But is longhand dead? Mueller and Oppenheimer conducted three different studies, each addressing the question: Is laptop note taking detrimental to overall conceptual understanding and retention of new information? For the first study, the researchers presented a series of TED talk films to a room of Princeton University students.

En skola för den digitala generationen! 33 Digital Tools for Advancing Formative Assessment in the Classroom. I came across a great blog post the other day – Formative Assessments Are Easier Than You Think – that told the firsthand account of a teacher, Steven Anderson, who implemented formative assessment in his classroom.

33 Digital Tools for Advancing Formative Assessment in the Classroom

He used a sticky-note version of an exit ticket to elicit evidence of student learning and in his words, “what a difference that made.” Formative assessment is ‘easier than you think’ and with all the digital tools and apps now available for mobile devices it’s even easier. We’ve shared some digital tools before and with the five tools that Steven shared combined with our earlier suggestions there are now 33 digital tools that we’ve uncovered that are free or inexpensive and help teachers implement formative assessment in their classrooms. Here they are: A few of Steven’s discoveries: Lino – A virtual corkboard of sticky-notes so students can provide questions or comments on their learning. Poll Everywhere – Teachers can create a feedback poll or ask questions. Utveckla undervisningen med surfplattor. I början av februari skrev jag om Creative Classrooms Lab, ett tvåårigt utvecklingsprojekt drivet av Europeiska skoldatanätet, som avslutades i maj.

Utveckla undervisningen med surfplattor

Det övergripande syftet var att undersöka hur surfplattans tekniska möjligheter kan utnyttjas för att utveckla undervisning och lärande – och vad som krävs för att eleverna, med hjälp och stöd av läraren, ska utvecklas till kreativa och självständiga lärande och problemlösare. Fyrtiofem grundskole- och gymnasieklasser från Belgien, Italien, Litauen, Portugal, Slovenien, Storbritannien, Tjeckien och Österrike deltog i Creative Classrooms Lab. Education in the Digital Era.
