Innovación y Apoyo Téc. a Docencia e Investigación » Grandes profesores en la era de la tecnología

Este post es una traducción de una publicación en su blog de Education Week. Aunque la tecnología avance tan rápidamente, la necesidad de grandes maestros no va a desaparecer. Esto se debe a que en esta era, el rol del profesor no es hacer lo que la tecnología ya realiza, es decir, enseñar contenido; sino más bien, enseñar el respeto, la empatía, la motivación y fomentar la pasión individual de cada alumno. Según Prensky, esto es lo que hace que los profesores sean buenos: En primer lugar, aman a sus alumnos, mucho más que su “contenido” o asignatura.

En segundo lugar, entienden que si bien, parte de su trabajo es preparar a los niños para los grandes retos, eso es sólo una parte. En tercer lugar, entienden que si todo lo que hacen es preparar a sus estudiantes según el plan de estudios, las normas (basadas principalmente en el pasado) y los exámenes, no es suficiente para ayudarlos.

Marketing & Creativity Workshops. In today's time-crunched, attention-deficit and multitasking world, micro-learning seems to have cropped up as a possible solution to corporate learning and personal development.

However, what exactly is micro-learning remains a bit of an elusive concept with different people defining it in different ways. Should it be something that takes less than 5 minutes to consume? Can a 10-minute learning byte be defined as micro-learning? Would a commoncraft-style video be considered micro-learning? Is an infographic summarizing and presenting data and text micro-learning? Micro-learning can also be understood as a process of subsequent, "short" learning activities, i.e. learning through interaction with micro-content objects in small timeframes. I have tried to define some of the key characterized and put them together in the diagram below. The way the term is being bandied about now would make one think that it is a new phenomenon designed to solve a myriad of workplace learning challenges.

At the Nueva School in Hillsborough, Calif., design thinking is built into students’ and teachers’ everyday lives.

The process, which is an approach to learning that includes considering real-world problems, research, analysis, building by hand, and lots of experimentation, is documented and shared among staff. The infographic (click on the image to see the full PDF) was created by Kim Saxe, director of Nueva’s iLab, and one of the champions of design thinking. To learn more about the process, read What Design Thinking Looks Like In School, How to Apply Design Thinking In Class, Step By Step, and our entire collection of articles about design thinking.
