7 things you should be about The Hybrid Flexible Course Model

2020-10-15T08:01:33+00:00October 15th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , |

The hybrid flexible, or HyFlex format (a model that was developed at San Francisco State University) is an instructional approach that combines face-to-face (F2F) and online learning. Each class session and learning activity is offered in-person, synchronously online, and asynchronously online. Students can decide how to participate. Central to this model is the principle that the learning is equivalent, regardless of the mode. All participants must have equitative access to the learning resources, the instructor, and one another. As it is a new way of teaching through technology, it may need updates and infrastructure, but despite this, it is very helpful [...]

Cal passar de la visió de l’educació entesa com a escolarització a una que reconegui la connexió dels diversos contextos d’aprenentatge

2020-09-28T08:26:46+00:00September 28th, 2020|Tags: , , , , |

César Coll, Catedràtic de Psicologia de l'Educació, Universitat de Barcelona, comenta sobre la seva visió d'educació més enllà de l'escola, abastant la connexió dels diversos contextos d'aprenentatge. Es refereix a l'redisseny de les activitats escolars en un temps rècord com a conseqüència de la pandèmia Covid19, especialment a la incorporació de diverses plataformes digitals per a l'ensenyament i l'aprenentatge. No obstant això, aquest nou context deixa entreveure debilitats importants de l'nostre sistema educatiu tal com la manca d'artefactes digitals, la diversitat de condicions que limiten a les famílies i, principalment, l'existència en d'algunes familias d'un capital i d'uns recursos culturals que poden [...]

Help parents and caregivers keep kids focused, interested, and balanced

2020-09-24T08:53:29+00:00September 24th, 2020|Tags: , , |

  This article was written by Christine Elgersma, editor and member of the non-profit organization Common Sense, in July 2020. This document provides some essential tips to help parents and caregivers keep children focused, interested, and balanced while learning at a distance. The distance learning scenario isn't entirely new and the hope is that we -- parents, caregivers, teachers, and school leaders -- are now better prepared to support kids in their social, emotional, and academic growth during the pandemic. What's true is that families are taking on much more responsibility for their kids' learning than ever before. And in order [...]

Learning Communities Can Save Colleges—and Engage Remote Students

2020-07-06T08:01:13+00:00July 6th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

In this article, Senegal Alfred Mabry, a senior policy analyst at the Hunt Institute, offers a reflection about how colleges plan to welcome students back for the fall semester—while preparing for a possible second outbreak of the coronavirus that would force classes back online–one thing is for sure: Community is more important than ever. Colleges don’t need new platforms or technology to build community or welcome students. They need to invest in infrastructure that builds relationships. Learning communities—where students work together with a common goal, purpose, or interest—are colleges’ best tool to make online learning hands-on learning. College administrators can make the transition to online [...]

En clave de educación

2020-09-17T13:21:02+00:00June 15th, 2020|Tags: , , , , , |

Mediante la iniciativa, En clave de educación, la Fundación Santillana pretende recoger todas las voces involucradas en el proceso educativo y reflexionar así sobre los cambios y retos a los que nos enfrentamos. Qué es lo que debemos aprender y, en consecuencia, qué es lo que debemos enseñar en la escuela no es una pregunta nueva, ni especialmente disruptiva, pero sí necesaria y cada día más importante. Es la gran pregunta educativa. Y lo es porque, en definitiva, preguntarse sobre el qué aprender (y, por tanto, por qué enseñar) es preguntarse por el sentido (o sin sentido) de la escuela misma. Plantearse qué [...]

Why Giving Learners Choices is an Important Part of Student Engagement

2020-06-30T14:12:16+00:00June 11th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

In this article, Abbie Forbus Everett, director of Teaching and Learning at KnowledgeWorks, explains the relevance of offering students choices as a good first step in order to help classrooms become more student-centered. Often it’s the highest performing students in the school that have the most opportunities for choice. Learners who are disengaged in school are most in need of relevant work and ownership, yet often these students are offered rote, repetitive work without authentic opportunities for choice. As we know, learning is emotional and when we feel connected to the learning, there is increased engagement. Equipping students to have choices in learning increases the chances that learning [...]

En el artículo, el autor propone [...]

The blended learning models that can help schools reopen

In this article, Thomas Arnett, a senior research fellow in education for the Clayton Christensen Institute, consider two blended learning models: the Enriched Virtual model and the Flipped Classroom model. This models offer a blueprint for how teachers can design instruction to meet the constraints—and even opportunities—of students coming to school in shifts to meet distancing requirements. To illustrate how these proposals work, the author presents some examples of what these types of models look like. Learn more  

Equity Isn’t Just About Technology. It’s About Supporting Students and Families

2020-07-02T09:36:00+00:00May 11th, 2020|Tags: , , , |

By now the coronavirus, and the resulting fallout, has impacted just about every family in one way or another. Students are out of school, unemployment is rising and social distancing could take a psychological toll. But not everyone is equally affected. Research indicates that students from low-income backgrounds could fall further behind their peers if learning stops too long and the country sinks into recession. That makes the conversation about education equity essential. But the term doesn’t just mean equipping students with the same devices and broadband access. Schools also play an important role in boosting at-home learning among families. This post, [...]
