    1. 1. Changing Education Paradigms – Sir Ken Robinson http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zDZFcDGpL4U
    2. 2. “ [They] are living in the most intensely stimulating period in the history of the earth… …beseiged with information and calls for attention from every platform: computers, iPhones, advertising hoardings, 100’s of TV channels… and we penalise students for getting distracted! From what? Boring stuff. At school for the most part. It may not be a coincidence totally that ADHD has risen in parallel with standardised testing”. SIR KEN ROBINSON
    3. 3. Our genes have co-evolved with our inventions… As fast as we remake our tools, we remake ourselves. We are co-evolving with our technology, and so we have become deeply dependent on it. If all technology – every last knife and spear – were to be removed from this planet, our species would not last more than a few months. We are now symbiotic with technology. Kevin Kelly
    4. 4. A few -isms Instructivism Constructivism Connectivism
    5. 5. An Instructivistic approach <ul><li>Teacher is the authority </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher is the knowledge giver </li></ul><ul><li>Students are passive </li></ul><ul><li>Students learn what the teacher tells them to </li></ul>
    6. 6. Constructivism <ul><li>Response to the Rise of web 2.0 </li></ul><ul><li>Students are participants </li></ul><ul><li>Students are empowered to seek knowledge & understanding for themselves in the context of their own unique, individual experiences </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers become facilitators – guiding & coaching participants to inquire, explore, discover & generate new learning </li></ul>
    7. 7. Connectivism <ul><li>What we know is less important than our capacity to continue to learn more. </li></ul><ul><li>Learning happens in informal, networked, technology-enabled areas </li></ul><ul><li>Nurturing and maintaining connections is needed to facilitate learning. </li></ul>
    8. 8. Connectivism <ul><li>Learning happens in many different ways. Courses, email, communities, conversations, web search, email lists, reading blogs, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>Explicitly addresses how best to learn in today’s world of connectedness & access to ever-changing & expanding knowledge. </li></ul>

    10. 10. As we ask people to do more complicated, creative and sophisticated tasks, a management-model based on compliance is no use. What you want is engagement and a self-directed, or autonomous workforce is much better at this . DAN PINK We need a more sustainable engagement economy – an economy that works by motivating and rewarding participants with intrinsic rewards… Positive emotions are the ultimate reward for participation. JANE MCGONIGAL
    11. 11. <ul><li>No specific coursebook </li></ul><ul><li>A negotiated syllabus </li></ul><ul><li>Greater levels of responsibility </li></ul><ul><li>Greater levels of autonomy </li></ul><ul><li>Integration of technology </li></ul><ul><li>Personalised learning structure </li></ul>
