Wordplay - Spanish Vocabulary Game Cómo evaluar el aprendizaje en e-learning ... las cegueras del conocimiento... Las cegueras del conocimiento : el error y la ilusión * Es muy diciente el hecho de que la educación, que es la que tiende a comunicar los conocimientos, permanezca ciega ante lo que es el conocimiento humano, sus disposiciones, sus imperfecciones, sus dificultades, sus tendencias tanto al error como a la ilusión y no se preocupe en absoluto por hacer conocer lo que es conocer. * En efecto, el conocimiento no se puede considerar como una herramienta ready made que se puede utilizar sin examinar su naturaleza. * Es necesario introducir y desarrollar en la educación el estudio de las características cerebrales, mentales y culturales del conocimiento humano, de sus procesos y modalidades, de las disposiciones tanto síquicas como culturales que permiten arriesgar el error 0 la ilusión.

La formación docente en entornos virtuales | Las TIC y la educación superior del siglo XXI Así como las tecnologías han introducido cambios en la sociedad lo han hecho en la educación. Ya hemos señalado que de un aprendizaje centrado en el profesor, paradigma de la sociedad industrial, vamos hacia un paradigma centrado en el aprendizaje del estudiante, propio de la sociedad del conocimiento. Los estudiantes de esta sociedad del siglo XXI tienen que moverse en un entorno rico en información, tienen que desarrollar dos nuevas competencias, adicionales a las clásica de conocer, hacer y ser, deben aprender a buscar la información y a saber aplicar o transformar esa información para resolver problemas. Este nuevo paradigma cambia el rol del docente y del estudiante. El docente será más faciltador, propiciará las condiciones para el aprendizaje y el estudiante será más autónomo y responsable de su aprendizaje. A estas teorías se incorpora la teoría de la conectividad creada por George Siemens y ampliada por Stephen Downes. Aporte realizado por Carrasco, Eduardo Jeremy V. Me gusta:

In Digital Age, Schools That Succeed are Schools That Connect School of One in New York City leverages technology throughout the school day. A few months ago, I posted an article by Shelly Blake-Plock called 21 Things in Education That Will be Obsolete in 2020, which lists some of the ways in which the face of schools will change in less than a decade. In this op-ed, which originally appeared in the Baltimore Sun, he describes what exactly needs to be done to get to there. By Shelly Blake-Plock Michelle Rhee is back in town. This time it is as a “grass-roots” activist who only wants to put children first. As a teacher and as a parent of three public school students, I look at the type of change they are advocating for and I see the future of failure. Plenty of wealthy schools are deciding not to make the connection, while many teachers in cash-strapped schools are pursuing a real grass-roots effort to make it happen. Foremost are the effects of the “digital divide.” The second crack is evident in those classrooms with technology. Related

Learn Spanish Free Online | Lessons and Tools Records show how Ann Arbor public schools are dealing with cyberbullying In May, Ann Arbor public schools moved to cut off wireless access for students using smartphones and other devices, citing the potential for cyberbullying as one reason. An review of school district documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act shows officials are increasingly concerned with cyberbullying involving students — with some of the conflict spilling over from the Web into classrooms. Sixteen incidents of cyberbullying or violations of the district's computer usage policy were reported in district schools in the 2010-11 school year, documents show. One video posted to YouTube was made in a school computer lab, records show.

Spanish phonology This article is about the phonology and phonetics of the Spanish language. Unless otherwise noted, statements refer to Castilian Spanish, the standard dialect used in Spain on radio and television.[1][2][3][4] For historical development of the sound system see History of Spanish. For details of geographical variation see Spanish dialects and varieties. Spanish has many allophones, so it is important here to distinguish phonemes (written between slashes / /) and corresponding allophones (written between brackets [ ]). Consonants[edit] The phoneme /ʝ/ is realized as an approximant in all contexts except after a pause, a nasal, or a lateral. The phoneme /ʎ/ (as distinct from /ʝ/) is found in some areas in Spain (mostly northern and rural) and some areas of South America (mostly highlands). Most speakers in Spain (except for Western Andalusia and all Canary Islands), including the variety prevalent on radio and television, have both /θ/ and /s/ (distinción).
