IMS, [Sept] 28, 2015

Rob Abel writes, by email: "If (you are) interested in LTI (Learning Tools Interoperability) support there are two public lists that are keep up to date daily. One is the “ catalog” of LTI platforms and apps/tools.   The left most column shows the learning platforms that are certified to run LTI (“ so-called “ LTI consumers” ):  .... An alpha product by product listing (showing product version and which version of LTI they are certified to) is shown here:"

Admissions Revolution

OLDaily - 29 Septiembre, 2015 - 04:28

Scott Jaschik, Inside Higher Ed, [Sept] 28, 2015

I find this interesting - from my perspective it looks like an effort by U.S. colleges to reassert their position with respect to learning and credentials. Here are the major elements of the initiative:

  • a high school student portfolio started in grade 9
  • portfolio-based interaction with high school students
  • a new application system that departs from the existing common application system (ie., each college will now ask its own set of questions)

Why do this?  We are told that the existing system "has lost its ability to help students and colleges find a good match" But it could also be because "CollegeNet last year filed an antitrust lawsuit against the Common Application."

If at First You Don’t Succeed: Toward an Adult Education and Training Strategy for Canada

OLDaily - 29 Septiembre, 2015 - 04:28

Torben Drewes, Tyler Meredith, Institute for Research on Public Policy, [Sept] 28, 2015

According to this study (38 page PDF), Canada's education system "does not provide sufficient support to meet the learning needs of adults who may be working but require a 'second chance.'" Although education remains a good investment as late as 40 years old, they say, older people face difficulties finding time and resources. Additionally, they are afraid of potentially unsuccessful outcomes. The report calls for "an ambitious pan-Canadian adult education and training strategy centred around three key reforms: 1) Improving labour market information and research... 2) Developing a comprehensive, income-contingent loans system targeting older adults; and 3) Overhauling provincial apprenticeship systems." Ithink the intentions are good, but doubt that these would address the issues (it would more likely produce a Canadian Council on Learning Phase II , which would achieve about as much as Phase I did).

Computers are the instruments of collaborative learning and knowledge work

Teemu Leinonen - 28 Septiembre, 2015 - 23:09

Imagine a jazz band. A guitarist, a saxophonist, a pianist, a bass player and a drummer.

The band is lead by the guitar player. He is the one that is, not only composing the first ideas, but also organizing most of the practicalities with the agent of the band. There are rehearsals, gigs, transportation, catering and of course money.

All members of the band are great with their instruments. Still any of them can play a note or two from each other instruments – even from a saxophone. When jamming they may change their instruments for fun.

Imagine the band on a stage. The guitar player starts the songs. Their style of playing is to start with a theme and then improvise from there. In turns the musicians take the front stage to play a solo. When playing the band members are communicating with body language and glances. From small hints they know what will happen next in the song.

The gig is over. Next day the guitar player is spending his time on practicing and composing new themes. In the evening he goes to jam in a club with some old friends. He is looking for a possibility to start a new project: a band playing jazz fusion. The saxophone player is playing jazz standards in a hotel lobby. She is playing with a pianist, but not the one she is playing in the band. Same time the pianist of the band is giving piano lessons for children. The drummer and the bass player are having a gig with a salsa band. it is their other project.

Doing collaborative learning and knowledge work is like being in a jazz band. The instruments played are computers and software.

All bands — including learning and working groups — should have a leader. Just like some bands may have an agent or management, this can be the case in a collaborative learning and work, too. Important is that the management is not telling the band what or how they should play. This is how it should be in a collaborative learning or work groups, too.

In a collaborative learning group the participants should learn to play their instruments: computers and software needed to create new knowledge. The instruments can be various. They can be tools for searching information, tools to evaluate and validate the information found, tools to conceptualize things in a written or visual forms, programming tools, tools to design models and simulations, tools for collecting data, tools to measure things, tools to create audio and video. There are many and all groups don’t need them all. Important is to learn to be a master of some of them and to be able to play a bit with the other instruments, too. At least for fun.

The natural place, the stage, for collaborative learning and knowledge work is online. A teacher and supervisor should act as the leader of the group. She should participate to the playing, lead the work but also step back when someone is ready to play a solo. Multifaceted communication is a key.

Collaborative learning and knowledge work doesn’t end when the school day or working hours are over. It continues in different times and spaces. People should be encouraged to use the skills they have learned. To start their own group. To learn and to work for fun. To make most out of the skills and knowledge learned in a another project.

[Audiocuento] No Eres una Lagartija

e-aprendizaje - 28 Septiembre, 2015 - 21:21

Estos últimos años he tenido la ocasión de leer bastante literatura infantil reciente y la sensación es que muchos de los libros que se publican pensando en la gente menuda [especialmente en quienes se inician en la lectura] no están realmente adaptados ni al lenguaje ni a los intereses de las niñas y niños de estas edades.

Afortunadamente de vez en cuando encuentras alguna joya, como es el caso del cuento ‘No eres una lagartija‘, escrito por Concha López Narváez e ilustrado por Rafael Salmerón y publicado por Editorial ANAYA en su colección ‘El Duende Verde’.

El relato trata de forma magistral, bajo mi punto de vista, el tema de la identidad y su desarrollo a través de la interacción con el entorno. El lenguaje no es complicado, la historia es emocionante… ¿qué hará el monstruo? Pues cosas monstruosas.

Además la Editorial ANAYA ofrece también una ficha de trabajo en formato pdf que puedes descargar gratuitamente.

Durante el pasado mes de agosto, aprovechando el descanso obligado y pensando en actividades para los peques decidimos grabar en familia un cuento infantil. Y qué mejor elección que este fantástico cuento, así es que Pedro en el rol de la lagartija, Silvia como la niña, Gabriel en el resto de personajes que aparecen en el cuento y yo como narrador queremos compartir contigo este audiocuento:

Se lo queremos dedicar a la Seño Elena, que fue la que nos hizo conocer esta pequeña joya de la literatura infantil y a mis amigas del Cole Pinolivo, que tan fantásticamente trabajan sobre la identidad de los peques.

He abierto un canal de Ivoox que he titulado Textos que (re)Suenan, y por lo pronto puedes suscribirte el podcast [Audiocuentos] e igual te encuentras alguna sorpresa más durante los próximos meses.

¡Esperamos que te guste!

Uneducation of a technologist #eden15

Learning with 'e's - 28 Septiembre, 2015 - 20:32
Once in a while you meet someone who inspires you to think more deeply. Jim Groom is one such person. He is anarchic, subversive, the original EDUPUNK (it was Jim who coined the phrase and insists on it being written in upper case) and he constantly challenges the status quo of education. He has redefined what it means to learn online with groundbreaking initiatives such as the open course ds106. As a part of the run-up to EDEN's annual summer conference in Barcelona, I was invited to interview him. Jim and I had previously interacted only on Twitter and other social media so to put some questions to him directly was hugely enjoyable, and he gave me his fairly unique take on the world. And so it was with even greater pleasure and a lot of anticipation that I finally met him in the same physical space in June 2015, where he gave a keynote speech at the EDEN conference in Barcelona entitled 'The Uneducation of the Technologist'. I live blogged during his keynote speech and met him afterwards for a chat in the EDEN studio. Below is the video interview we recorded:

Comparacions amb resultats ignominiosos

Educación flexible y abierta - 28 Septiembre, 2015 - 19:41

Efectivament, en educació no tot depèn dels recursos econòmics que s´hi destinen sinó de com es distribueixen: es pot gastar una doblerada, per exemple, per adquirir ordenadors per a les escoles però serviran de ben poca cosa si no s´ha previst formar el professorat, o si les connexions als centres no són les adequades. Aquesta evidència, però, no pot ser emprada per mantenir el sistema escolar de Balears en la penúria: racionalitzar els recursos dedicats a l´educació és obligació de tot gestor
