New pedagogies?

Learning with e's

We need a new set of pedagogies (and we also need to know how these can be supported with theory) if we are to maximise the impact of technology on education. New wine needs to be poured into new wineskins, and similarly new technologies require new pedagogies, which requires us to change the way we teach, assess, and even represent knowledge. He's right.

True pedagogy

Learning with e's

Pedagogy is not about directing children. In its absolute form, pedagogy is not just about teaching. In the truest sense, teaching is just one element of pedagogy and not the entire story. Pedagogy focuses on the learner and what they are capable of achieving. Pedagogy is about leading learners to the place of education. What does this mean for teachers today?

Rethinking Design: Pedagogy

These aren’t clearly discriminated, but it’s a coarse description. Of course, there’s an introduction that both emotionally and cognitively prepares the learner for the coming learning experience.

Pedagogy vs. Andragogy: Where Many Get it Wrong In Their Learning Strategy

eLearningMind

Most professionals in the learning space have used the words “pedagogy” and “andragogy” before. Broken down, pedagogy and andragogy essentially translate to “child guide” and “man guide” respectively. One of the most obvious differences between andragogy and pedagogy is the motivation of the learner. It’s a common mistake and one that might seem like no big deal, but mixing up pedagogy and andragogy (and using the wrong one strategically) makes your learning less effective. Unfortunately, the terms are often used interchangeably and therefore, incorrectly. Adults?

Mapping Pedagogies For Performance

Big Dog, Little Dog

Clark Quinn wrote an extremely interesting post, X-based learning: sorting out pedagogies and design , on activity based learning. Wanting to see how these different models would interconnect on a mindmap, I started playing with them. This seemed to give the mindmap a real purpose, rather than just be formal vs. informal, social vs. self, or active vs. passive.

Andragogy vs. Pedagogy

Big Dog, Little Dog

Pedagogy is derived from the Greek words paid meaning “child&# and agogus meaning “leader of.&# In this pedagogy classroom, the teachers are responsible for all decisions about learning in that they decided what is to be learned, how it is to be learned, when it should be learned, and if it has been learned. They wanted to be able to discuss the growing body of knowledge about adult learners in parallel with pedagogy. Just because pedagogy is finally catching up to andragogy is not a strong enough reason to drop the concept from our terminology.
