Next Generation Learning Challenges

The Special Sauce of Social Learning by Marc J. Rosenberg “The bottom line is that for social learning to be accepted and used, it must be a seamless and natural part of the workplace, and the work. Failure to focus on all the ingredients for successful social learning is a showstopper and will kill it in its tracks.” Years ago, when McDonalds introduced the Big Mac, it wanted to separate its new sandwich from the rest of the crowd. It was the sauce, they said, that made it unique. In the new era of social media, we must fully understand what makes one social learning experience stand out and another peter out. The eight ingredients of great social learning These efforts are organizational, cultural, and strategic in nature, as well as technological. Make the tools and technology insanely easy to use. Make it all-natural The bottom line is that for people to accept and use social learning, it must be a seamless and natural part of the workplace, and the work. Remember, social media technologies have no value.

How student empowerment drives blended learning and other tips from experts in the field Blended learning can lead to student agency — the enabling of informed, empowered learning — when it gives students choices about what, where, when, and how they learn. A group experts* recently shared blended learning strategies in Next Generation Learning Challenge’s #NGLCchat on student agency. (NGLC’s founding partners include The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which is also a funder of The Hechinger Report). Their ideas follow. Blended learning leads to student agency when it is about the learner, not the technology, the test, or even the school, but when it reaches ALL students. Education consultant Chris Watkins has identified performance-focused practices he calls “space invaders” because they take up space in the classroom that should be devoted to learning practices. Classrooms that engage in blended learning practices free up time and space for students to be true agents of their learning. Blended learning facilitates active, authentic student roles.

Learning Personalized Lehre : Hier rein, da raus | Studium Universitäten sollten endlich die Vorlesung abschaffen Speichern Drucken Twitter Facebook Google + Hochschulen pflegen wieder ihr Brauchtum. Dass dies ein Mythos ist, zeigt eine Studie des Nobelpreisträgers Carl Wiemann von der University of British Columbia. Anzeige Während der Professor den Stoff als klassischen Frontalvortrag verabreichte, griff der Postdoktorand in die didaktische Methodenkiste: Er ließ die Studenten zu zweit oder in Kleingruppen diskutieren, testete mit Multi-Choice-Fragen per Knopfdruck ihren Wissensfortschritt und gab ihnen als Hausaufgabe Lesestoff, der anfangs jeder Veranstaltung wiederum mit einem Quiz abgefragt wurde. Der neue reformfeindliche Retrotrend an den Universitäten feiert die traditionelle Vorlesung neuerdings gar als besonders gelungene Form der Meister-Schüler-Beziehung. Das Ergebnis kann jeder sehen, der sich einmal in die hintere Reihe einer Vorlesung setzt und auf die Bildschirme der aufgeklappten Laptops schaut.

Four Reasons to Worry About "Personalized Learning" Tocqueville’s observations about the curious version of democracy that Americans were cultivating in the 1830s have served as a touchstone for social scientists ever since. One sociologist writes about the continued relevance of what Tocqueville noticed way back then, particularly the odd fact that we cherish our commitment to individualism yet experience a “relentless pressure to conform.” Each of us can do what he likes as long as he ends up fundamentally similar to everyone else: You’re “free to expand as a standardized individual.”[1] A couple of decades ago, that last phrase reminded me of how our pitiful individuality was screwed to the backs of our cars in the form of customized license plates. Today it brings to mind what goes by the name “personalized learning.” A suffix can change everything.

Winning in the Classroom with Your Personalized Learning Playbook | EdSurge Guides Personalized learning means different things to different people. Visit different schools with different models, and chances are they will all tell you they are using some form of personalized learning. But what does “personalized learning” mean, and how do schools follow in others' footsteps in order to get in the game? When it comes to sports, players turn to the playbook. So when it comes to personalized learning, where’s the playbook with those reliable, go-to plays to put into action? For a field that’s so young and has yet to be solidly defined, these personalized learning plays are being invented as we go. To define personalized learning for themselves and bring that vision to life, educators turn to a number of resources: frameworks and blueprints for personalized learning, networks of innovative schools and educators, and ultimately their own communities to co-create a vision for what it will all look like.

Association for Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL) - Home for the World ePortfolio Community 7 Ways to Transform Your Classroom Background: This is a blog post I originally wrote for a presentation on Classroom 2.0 Live! It is based on some ideas sparked in another post, Transformative or just flashy educational tools?, which only had 6 suggestions, but David Warlick inspired the 7th in his comment. The 7 aspects below, were developed when principal Stephen Whiffin and I were conceptualizing some of the important aspects we would be exploring at our new Inquiry Hub school, (more on the school here and here). We believe that much of what we are doing at the Inquiry Hub can be done in any classroom. Note that in both the blog post and the accompanying slide show, each section includes an inquiry question that educators can persue to extend their own learning. (Give learners choice.) Inquiry based learning is a key tenet of the Inquiry Hub. Which of these resources will help you develop more inquiry based lessons? (Give learners a voice.) (Give learners an audience.) (Give learners a community to collaborate with.)
