How we will learn.

The 7 Powerful Idea Shifts In Learning Today. By Terry Heick, : Shift_Learning: The 7 Most Powerful Idea Shifts In Learning Today So we’re taking a stand here.

The 7 Powerful Idea Shifts In Learning Today

This is all incredibly subjective, but so are the VH1 Top 100 Hair Bands Videos and those are fun, am I right? So subjective it is. Let’s make a list. A list of ideas that are truly transformational. Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create itright now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y. But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise. The Challenge of Implementation It’s challenging enough to manage a traditional learning environment where the curriculum is handed to you, and meetings are set, and you’re simply there to manage; adding more ingredients to the mix seems like asking for trouble.

Toward Systemic Educational Change: Questions from a Complex Systems Perspective

Introduction: New Problems, New Tools, New Questions Researchers in Education and in Complex Systems Analysis have a unique opportunity to help strengthen the U.S. educational system and bring new tools for thinking to millions of Americans. This Report both highlights the prospects for a complex systems approach to educational change and invites wider participation in the next stages of formulating a research and action agenda. New conceptual approaches to the study of complex systems have been developed in the last two decades by mathematicians, physicists, chemists, biologists, and computer scientists.

Chaos, Complexity and Language LearningPetrus Ramus in the 1500’s, and, more recently, the computational, information- processing models of cognition.

Chaos, Complexity and Language Learning

In all of these traditions there is a cause-effect,sequential, logical, deterministic, and controllable view of the world’s systems. Whyshould teaching and learning be any different? Perhaps they aren’t, but newapproaches to understanding complex cognitive processes have recently emerged thatmay offer a better understanding of learning. They are based on complex systemstheory as well as new constructs of how the brain works. This paper will present anexplanation of this new complex systems paradigm, present a model of languagelearning based on the new paradigm, and then look at possible implications of thatnew model.
