Learning, Transfer, Application; Pedagogy & Technology: Newsletter, Issue #22, 12/12/12

Effective and efficient, deep, individual, long term, learning transfer and application requires the integration of three important elements:  content knowledge, pedagogical, and technological

Here is some relevant information to help you integrate into your facilitated instruction and individual long term, learning, transfer and application objectives,  the appropriate pedagogy and best ways to deliver your key, critical, must know content, over the appropriate technology

(1) The Big Picture:

i. TPACK 101

“A CLEAR and succinct overview of the TPACK planning model for understanding the complex interplay of professional knowledge domains during a teacher’s integration of technology with classroom practice”

ii. Cyber Education: The Role of Technology in Education Transformation

  • Jim Brazell  presents why STEM (science, technology, engineering & Math), individual deep, long term, learning, transfer and application, is strategically important and makes a strong case for the need to integrate “college readiness” and “career readiness”
    • Audio ( 60 minutes+)
    • Supporting Power Point (148 slides to visually follow along to the audio)

(2) Innovative Technology Doesn’t Mean Instructionally Innovative

” We jump on to what’s trendy without stopping to consider how the tool can effectively be used in the classroom to promote high-quality learning”.

3. Technology as “Hamburger Helper”

“Technology has long been offered as the miraculous balm that will transform and improve teaching and learning”… “With each new advance, districts spend heavily on nifty new gizmos, make grand promises, and get lots of enthusiastic press. And then, each time, nothing much changes”.

4. Why Minimal Guidance During Instruction Does Not Work: An Analysis of the Failure of  Constructivist, Discovery, Problem-Based, Experiential, and Inquiry-Based Teaching

” Although unguided or minimally guided instructional approaches are very popular and intuitively appealing, the point is made that these approaches ignore both the structures that constitute human
cognitive architecture and evidence from empirical studies over the past half-century that consistently
indicate that minimally guided instruction is less effective and less efficient than instructional
approaches that place a strong emphasis on guidance of the student learning process”.

5. Education (Long Term Learning, Transfer and Application) Reform

“Supporting Articles Validating the Urgent Need for Education Reform”

6. What the experts recommend for Education Reform AND individual, Long Term, learning, Transfer and Application of critical must know information

The New Learning Model:

“Instructor facilitated, truly personalized, learning methodology, over time, (2) With instructor facilitated, truly personalized, reinforcement, over time, (3) In an instructor facilitated, truly personalized blended learning environment, over time,  (4) Supplemented by truly personalized learning technology

Where individual long term, learning, = Instructor Facilitated, Appropriate:  initial understanding, ongoing reinforcement, fluency/mastery, recall (eliminating forgetting), application, stick/behavior change, in the most effective and most efficient way possible

7. Existing, Research Driven, Truly Personalized, Long Term Learning, Transfer & Application Template that is seamlessly integrated into a web based, software platform

This parallels the New Learning Model in (6), directly above
