Awesome Chart on " Pedagogy Vs Andragogy "
Adult learning is a vast area of educational research and probably one of the most complicated. Adults learn differently and have different strategies in learning. Adults Learning Theory and Principles explain in details these strategies and sheds more light on how adults cultivate knowledge. Talking about adult learning brings us to the concept of Andragogy. According to the article Malcolm Knowles an American practitioner and theorist of adult education, defined andragogy as “the art and science of helping adults learn”. Knowles identified the six principles of adult learning as: Adults are internally motivated and self-directedAdults bring life experiences and knowledge to learning experiencesAdults are goal orientedAdults are relevancy orientedAdults are practicalAdult learners like to be respected Tom Whitby wrote this great article " Pedagogy Vs Andragogy " in which he argued for using these same principles of adults learning in kids learning.

E-Learning in Education: Andragogy and constructivism Andragogy aligns with constructivism as a theory and a method employing new techniques that engage adult students in online learning. The constructivist paradigm is suited to the adult learner who has a cabinet-full of information and experience that he brings to the table of learning. Adults are often more confident in their views and enjoy active engagement in dialogue and debate. They have “learned” their lessons of the younger years, when “knowing meant being able to remember and repeat.” (Brown, 2005).

Debunking the Genius Myth Picture a “genius” — you’ll probably conjure an image of an Einstein-like character, an older man in a rumpled suit, disorganized and distracted even as he, almost accidentally, stumbles upon his next “big idea.” In truth, the acclaimed scientist actually said, “It’s not that I’m so smart, it’s just that I stay with problems longer.” But the narrative around Einstein and a lot of accomplished geniuses — think Ben Franklin, the key and the bolt of lightning — tends to focus more on mind-blowing talent and less on the hard work behind the rise to success. A downside of the genius mythology results in many kids trudging through school believing that a great student is born, not made — lucky or unlucky, Einstein or Everyman.

Using Technology Vs Technology Integration- An Excellent Chart for Teachers Are you using or integrating technology in your teaching ? At the face of it, it seems like a game of semantics but in fact it is more than that. When we talk about technology integration in the classroom we are talking about a planned and highly structured and purposeful use of technology with students whose ultimate goal is to engage students and help them develop new thinking skills. Using technology, on the other hand, is a random and sporadic process whose main goal is to instruct students on content not to engage them with content.

EAC 595G The Adult Learner - WolfWikis From WolfWikis Introduction to Andragogy Initially termed by Alexander Kapp in 1833, Andragogy has been defined by Malcolm Knowles as the art and science of helping adults learn. Malcom Knowles Adult Learning Methods and Technology Skip to main content Adult Learning Methods and Technology Adult Learning Guide Using Microsoft Photo Story for Digital Storytelling in the Language Classroom September 2011 – Volume 15, Number 2 Introduction Digital storytelling, simply speaking, is the use of digital technology to tell stories (Ohler, 2008; The University of Houston, 2011). It combines traditional storytelling with modern technology (Lowenthal, 2009). To be more specific, digital storytelling uses digital video, animation, recorded narration, music, and/or any other media which help to tell a story (Bitter & Legacy, 2008; The University of Houston, 2011). Instead of using advanced technology, low-end technology which is commonly available to students is usually used in education, and the product involved is usually in the form of a short movie that audiences can watch using a computer.

Training Teachers to Teach Critical Thinking How KIPP educators instruct their colleagues to enhance their classroom practice. KIPP King Collegiate High School principal Jason Singer trains his teachers to lead Socratic discussions (above); Katie Kirkpatrick (right), dean of instruction, developed a step-by-step framework -- described below -- for teaching students basic critical-thinking skills. Credit: Zachary Fink Thinking critically is one thing, but being able to teach it can be quite another. Katie Kirkpatrick, dean of instruction at KIPP King Collegiate High School, developed the school's Speech & Composition class, a requirement for all students. In the class, students learn basic critical-thinking skills.

Podagogy? Podagogy? Mobile devices are becoming increasingly pervasive among non-traditional learners, and is forcing educators and higher education institutions to adjust their learning delivery systems. Photo by Titanas. I thought that “pedagogy” was the word for how to teach and learn, but looking on the Internet for the meaning of “ped”, I found “pedal” which is the thingie you push with your foot. phd.richardmillwood.net/en/theoretical-and-conceptual-framework/the-challenge-of-learning-theory Figure 5: Learning Theory This concept diagram (Figure 5) and notes below are taken from the work I undertook to complete an overview of learning theory for the EU-funded HoTEL project in 2013, intended to help technology enhanced learning innovators untrained in educational theory to make better sense of theory in order to improve their designs and the impact of their innovations. "Learning theory has been a contested scientific field for most of its history, with conflicting contributions from many scientific disciplines, practice and policy positions. With the continuing and disruptive influence of technology on information, knowledge and practice in all sectors of society it is no wonder that innovators, drawn to the interactive potential that computers bring to learning, are challenged by the theoretical basis for their innovations. Formal education is also a high stakes, culturally & institutionally conservative activity, which serves more than one societal purpose, including:
