Maker pedagogy

Learning with 'e's

More and more teachers are beginning to realise that creating environments and possibilities where students make things is a very powerful pedagogy. Seymour Papert ''s work on constructionism outlines the cognitive gain that occurs when we create something new rather than simply repeat knowledge that has already been acquired. American educator Jackie Gerstein makes some important observations about how teachers can change their perspectives and embrace maker pedagogy.

Words in mind

Learning with 'e's

Psychologists and cognitive scientists have offered a number of useful theories that aid our understanding of learning. The last post in this series featured the stages of cognitive development model proposed by Jean Piaget. In this post I examine a cognitive theory - spreading activation theory - adapted from a hierarchical model of memory proposed by Ross Quillian and Allan Collins. Anderson ACT-R Cognitive Architecture 2. Festinger Cognitive Dissonance Theory 12.

Learning as dialogue

Learning with 'e's

Later, Piaget, Inhelder and others were responsible for introducing a cognitive version of learning theory which held that children were ''solo scientists'' who constructed their own meaning through exploration of their environment. This prompted new approaches in schools that included discovery learning and progressive curricula that neatly reflected Piaget''s stages of cognitive development model. dialogue education learning pedagogy social learning teaching teaching machines ZP

The height of SAMR

The first two levels, substitution and augmentation are often referred to as low levels of technology integration, in as much as they do not substantially impact upon or transform pedagogy. Learning through making was always an option in the traditional classroom, but learning through making that can be interactive, reiterated, linked and connected to other artefacts, embedded and repurposed, and generally propagated across a variety of media, is a huge step forward for education.

Learning first, technology second

Learning with 'e's

Many teachers welcome the idea of bringing new technology into the classroom. There is nothing wrong with any of these approaches, provided they don''t get in the way of good pedagogy. The main problem with most MLEs is that they are so complex to use, students often spend more time and cognitive energy working out how to get to the content, than they do actually learning. mlearn14 digital strategy education learning LMS MLE pedagogy schools teaching Technology universiy VL

eXSpace exploration

Learning with 'e's

The ability to interact directly with the thinking of others by creating one's own content alongside existing content, merging, comparing and contrasting and even overwriting, is a complex process that can support advanced levels of cognition and problem solving. The use of it in the eXSpace, if I am to be critical, may not necessarily prepare my student teachers for the classrooms they will be entering on placement, mainly because most schools won't have the 7000 series yet.

Rather, it is the persistent assumption that 'grading' is paramount for the measurement of student understanding, and that we should focus the power of AI to support this kind of pedagogy.

How it can be applied to education Clearly, heutagogy is a specific kind of learning theory, in the sense that it points out the distinction between self-determined learning and learning that is more likely to be driven by formal pedagogy. Teachers should consider that students'' personal technologies should not be banned from the classroom, but could instead be integrated into lessons and embedded as mind tools to extend and enrich the experience of learning.

According to Dr. Michelle Pacansky-Brock , humanized online learning “supports the non-cognitive components of learning and creates a culture of possibility for more students.” Up until the early 2000s, course quality was determined by examining course content, pedagogy, and learning outcomes.

His work around the study of social and cognitive presence in distance learning contexts has been cited many times, and his research has led to a number of high profile keynote speech invitations around the globe. Second,to follow from Marshall McLuhan the Medium is the Pedagogy (first coined by Cousin (2005). New tools give rise to new ways to teach and learn and these are guided by our understanding of teaching and learning pedagogy.

Ted Nelson’s Unbook

In the above photo, Ted demos Xanadu. None of this fits with the 20th century curriculum, and the necessary pedagogy based on student inquiry and collaboration (with teacher guidance) is very different from the accepted pedagogy of delivery of a body of knowledge by expert teachers to passive students who record and regurgitate facts. Asked if his ADD got in the way, he told the audience, no, it was just another way of cognitive processing. A new unbook.
