&lt;NL&gt; We tend to think that interaction is something that happens only when humans speak to each other, or when we interact online but… Interaction is basic to life -Cellular connection is the essence of symbiosis.. -In more complex organisms, connection and communication brings interaction to different levels: for example sexual relationships and community building. -In communities, communicative tools include dematerialized connection, like signals or language -Communication between species creates mutual dependencies and allows collective action -In Human collectivities, communication is essential for creating social contract and cultural complexity
NL Education has always been a survival strategy that provides a learning framework basically for two things :1- For developing individual adaptation skills, by identifying facts and procedures that are individually useful. 2- For creating a collective règulatory culture, by encouraging attitudes and principles that are socially projected. When we were in caves, the common objective required that each individual invest his or her personal abilities in service of the group– for example, hunting a large animal – and the group had to encourage everyone to develop their best skills for survival. In this framework, education becomes a consciously guided procedure for stimulating personal process, and for collective community building.
EXPERIENCING CONTEXT: In Neolithic times, learning on context was mainly EXPLORING AND EXPERIENCING CONTEXT, by searching, hunting and gathering around. Occupying territory, using it and taking advantadge of local resources, developed strong knwledge of the environment and of the situational context. MODIFYING CONTEXT Using resources and CHANGING CONTEXT, adpating the environment to new needs, started rising a more complex culture. Major diversity strated to happen when adpatation to different situations was a need, and a response for surviving. Egypt empaire was built around growing the Nile lands, learning from modiying environment. 3. DIVERSIFYING CONTEXT CHANGE CONSOLIDATING, PLANNING AND EXPANDING RESPONSES TO CONTEXT provided consistent community building processes. Protocols, habits, rituals and traditions shape interaction with context and responses to context change. Organization and social structures evolve when integrating, planning community change, adjusting collectivities, creating corporations, companies or networks. INTERPRETING CONTEXT CHANGE REFLECTING ON DIFFERENT WAYS OF UNDERSTANDING CONTEXT -EXPLAINING AND JUSTIFYING how can we interact, change and adapt in diversity expands mental context
NL The question is, whether we are going to make additions following the traditional models, or if we are going to change them…. Education in School Systems has usually been more about “bringing knowledge to the nòvice” than about bringing out learners’ abilities, to explore the external world. These two tendencies have modeled our concept of learning for centuries: the word “education” has two Latin roots: -Educare in Latin means “to rear or to bring up…” -Educere means “exducere, to lead out or to draw out… “
RG The PISA requirements say that Collaborative problem solving includes “sharing the understanding and effort required to come to a solution.” This chart, from the group for Assessment and Teaching of 21st-Century Skills, breaks down some of the component skills needed to accomplish this. The ATC21S is a research project that works to provide students with the skills they will need going forward, with similar attitudes and actions described by the OECD in its PISA documents. Just a quick question: What do you think is the first essential ability we need to develop collaborative skills? Use the chat box. Experts in social and emotional development say it is listening – ACTIVE listening.
NL Some would say 42 but we have to say 2030 – UNESCO’s proposal is to reach organizational change by 2030. These are the 17 areas of action for sustainable development. To reach them all, we need knowledge building and community building Just as we’ve seen before, this involves complex problem solving and social skills
RG We humans have passed through several revolutionary steps to arrive at Digital Literacy: Speech: communicate beyond immediate surroundings – events in unknown places, different time, explainable causes. Collective memory. Writing: messages and information stored, projection of human experience in time, space and concepts, diversified channels. Codified recording. Mass Printing (and Generalized Literacy): Individualized information access and generalized consumption. Education system needed. Digital: Global shared virtual space for information creation and consumption. Ubiquitous, dematerialized information through a common (binary) code. We still don’t know what tomorrow’s digital literacy will mean, but we can be sure that it will add new audiovisual and kinesthetic codes to the existing ones. We never eliminate, we add.
&lt;RG&gt; Today, access to information can take place from almost anywhere, as long as there is a communication tool available. A tablet or smartphone on the bedside table has transformed our home or office into a nuclear knowledge centre, and the quantity of available knowledge seems effectively infinite. The role of the content professional has to adapt to this new world. The level of complexity due to diversity in today’s society is multiple orders of magnitude beyond what it was in any previous era. These tools have given everyone the ability to play a dissemination role. Everybody may now be a MEME disseminator.
NL These models could be explained by looking at the roles of teacher and student: On one hand there is the idea that students should be encouraged to repeat and reproduce models from teachers and experts, until they master a particular domain or metier… Another model encourages students’ initiatives in order to promote creative solutions to new contexts and emergent needs. This particular paradigm usually emerges in periods of deep cultural change. What Learning mètaphors do we need today, in The Digital Age? - We know the old idea of filling an empty glass… We have compared the student’s growth process to a growing plant that needs tutoring… We’ve had the belief that the brain is a muscle that should be exercised… Now we are developing the metaphor of connectivity. How do we connect with science and truth?...
&lt;NL&gt; The end of the job ethos, the integration of life activities, means that we must find a personal sweet spot that includes competency, passion, and reward. We’re going to be doing it all the time, but getting paid for it only some of the time. This shows clearly the importance of what Daniel Goleman calls “emotional intelligence.” This is essential in the workplace.
NL In Digital Learning, cognitive , social , and knowledge building are blended. Most successful Teaching Strategies follow the steps identified in the digital learning process: Access the tool and the information Adopt it Adapt it to your needs Appropriate Innovate with it The challenge is to make it meaningful, participatory, and engaging. Teaching is not transmitting knowledge for students to learn what the teacher knows, it is moving others to inquire and learn what nobody knows yet. Digital learning is not just about the tools, or the way we use them. It’s about the principles and values we choose to apply when sharing ideas for social knowledge building, in digital ecosystems.
