The Educator's PLN

The personal learning network for educators

 It's changing the mode of access to technological consumption. It changes the way young people communicate ... Young people do not perceive themselves as passive subjects of the computer world, but as active participants of the content production to exchange and share: sharing participation and thus become the new "rules" of network usage "... They share thoughts and also share files ( file sharing )... They anticipate new way to use the technology, which then with time - settling - become customary for all .... 
And the teachers? 
Some try to get busy, some are frightened by new technology, others refuse ... The student today needs to participate in a learning process based on the possibility of combining different methods of learning. 
Teachers have the task of changing their role from dispensers of information to the generators of knowledge ... This change of role transition creates a situation of difficulty or crisis. 
Need an evolution toward digital modes of thought more appropriate that the new generations (digital natives). 
And the biggest challenge comes from the fact that teachers, mostly digital immigrants, who need to interact with the digital generation "mistress" in the world of new technologies .... experiment and innovate new forms of learning, here's the bet. 
The traditional education has seen few innovations in the origin of the schools and universities today ... 

E-learning and online training is not the answer, but a help. 
The classical formula of online learning is a little tough, does not work with new generations of studenti...L 'education 1.0 is weak in terms of dell'interattivà and collaboration, too rigid roles of teacher , student and tutor. 

Learning can benefit from sharing and re-working 'flat' content typical of the new frontiers of the Web, the Web 2.0... 
The center of the training must be the learner (student-centered learning) and not 
the trainer / teacher or tutor. 
The use of socianetwork, wikis, video blogs, tagging, mash-up tools, and Ajax technologies, are the new "books", pencils, pens, rulers, compasses, scissors and glue of "NetSchool"... 
new knowledge , new forms of interaction in the network... And 'the transition from online learning community open to horizontal groups, groups for collaboration.

Catch up or recovery?

I've been intrigued by the language of "catch up" which has come from government ministers and even the Children's Commissioner. The idea that lockdown has resulted in lost learning and a widening of the gap can't be disputed but it is the solutions put forward by government which has revealed the reductive nature of the government's attitude to learning and to young people. To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
