  • You noted that your Granddaughter instinctively knew how to flip the pages on the IPad. When I was home for Christmas break my 4 year old Nephew also knew had to scroll threw pages on the internet! I believe social media to a change in the way information is absorbed and retained.

What I experienced about learning by baby sitting my 3 year old niece for only 6 exhausting hours so Mom and Dad could go to a movie on Saturday afternoon

  1. 1. What I experienced about learning<br />By baby sitting my 3 year old niece for only 6 exhausting hours so Mom and Dad could go to a movie on Saturday afternoon<br />
  2. 2. We played three games on my iPad,<br />beginning with Angry Birds. Then<br />I realized I had an app on my<br />iPhone to read Dr. Seuss. So out <br />came the iPhone for a read with <br />the Doctor- auto play, read to me<br />and read it myself. My niece <br />intuitively knew how to flip the <br />pages with the swipe of her finger.<br />She asked me a question<br />only when she got stuck.<br />
  3. 3. Then she saw the Kindle and <br />decided to give that a try.<br />As she can’t move from <br />reading Dr. Seuss to Jane Austin, <br />we gave up on this device. <br />It is worth noting that she<br />automatically started key<br />boarding.<br />
  4. 4. We went outside and<br />learned not to pull flowers<br />off the plants. A bit of hands<br />on learning and experimentation <br />and making mistakes.<br />
  5. 5. Then we went fishing with our poles. Hers is seen in the photo. We learned about frogs, that they like to sit on the pads and then we experienced mosquitoes and retreated indoors. <br />
  6. 6. I turned on the TV and we <br />watched about 5 minutes <br />of the Disney movie Cats <br />and Dogs before she <br />became bored.<br />
  7. 7. So we then played with some “real” cats. She found the toys and had fun for about 10 minutes.<br />
  8. 8. Continuing the imaginative creativity theme, the “rabbit people” came alive for hours of conversational fun. <br />At the beginning of the fun, both rabbits had two ears. <br />She went to the market to buy some carrots, we discussed hopping vs walking, and then they got very tired and….<br />
  9. 9. So she built a rabbit house and a bed with our 100 plus year old Turkish embroidery so they could sleep.<br />
  10. 10. With the rabbit people sleeping she decided we had to be silent and so we went outside to let them sleep.<br />Here is where we played sidewalk art together for over an hour. Pictured here is fairy dust, a butterfly, an airplane, flowers and kite flying on the beach. <br />And we designed new colored rocks and drew on the trees.<br />She asked about the butterflies she had seen a month ago.<br />
  11. 11. And now for a serous reflection on adult learning<br />What can we note about adult learning from my 6 hour exhausting babysitting role?<br />
  12. 12. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Be quite. Sit and listen. <br />We like physical activity. Moving about forming breakout groups and returning as a group for report outs or taking walks to review visuals/posters creates a learning environment.<br />We learn through engagement- events and activities that appear useful for our lives and our work. Adults prefer practice over theory.<br />
  13. 13. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Chalk, whiteboards <br />Mobile phones are entering the teaching world of activities and events. We can’t ignore the opportunities! Visit Mobile Phones for Communication and Learning on a University Campusfor more information.<br />Apps are emerging . Visit University Apps- The Challenge of Delivering Sustainable Information Just in Time, Anytime and Just for Them!for more.<br />Tablets are just in their infancy but if a 3 year old uses one now, imagine the changes coming!<br />
  14. 14. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Skinnerian behaviorism and mim-mem. <br />Mimicry and memorization have given way to knowing where to locate information when it is required. This digital age requires digital literacies as the Web is word-of-mouth on steroids.<br />Digital literacies empower us to globally connect- classroom to classroom via Skype, email, web sites. <br />
  15. 15. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Skinnerian behaviorism and mim-mem. <br />For more information on the digital tools instructors and students can use to empower themselves in the learning process check out this video on Slideshare. <br />And check out this slide pack with on key digital learning tools- The New Norm- Emerged and Emerging Technologies That Make Connection Possible. <br />
  16. 16. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Sage on the stage. One way communication <br />Lecture has it’s role in learning, but not to the exclusion of interactive delivery of information, cemented by discussion or debate.<br />The communication model of Sender and Receiver also contains the elements of noise and feedback. Feedback is a two-way street. <br />
  17. 17. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Sage on the stage. One way communication <br />If we are creative, technologies can fundamentally alter delivery and learning.<br />Check out What if Conferences were Twitter-Free?to see how Twitter has altered the way conferences work.<br />
  18. 18. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Sage on the stage. One way communication <br />Multiple media, multiple methods help ensure that all learning styles are reached.<br />Cultural diversity has to be taken into consideration. Culture determines expectations for classroom behavior, both on the part of the learner and the instructor.<br />
  19. 19. Then and now<br />Then<br />Now<br />Accountability <br />Accountability! Yes, to a large extent students are responsible for their own learning. Instructors are accountable to keep up with theories that may shape education, such as Connectivism.<br />We can use aggregators like NetvibesorGoogle Alerts to keep us informed.<br />
  20. 20. My call to you for action!<br />Then<br />Now<br />Death by PowerPoint.
