Evolutions in Leadership

Originalmente publicado en Julian Stodd's Learning Blog:

Evolution is about change over generations: about adaptation to suit the prevailing environment. It’s not a fast process, but it has an inevitability, and we all know what happens to the losers. Look back a hundred years and our view of leadership was one dimensional: leaders told others what to do.

Ingrained behaviours in class led societies, the legacy of Victorian era industrialisation, the rise of the new city states, where money and influence were ever more concentrated, these factors mitigated for strong leaders who gave orders and expected compliance.

So much has changed: the technology that forged the ploughshares continued to evolve, through steam engines, jet airplanes and iPhones. Increases in communication technology gave rise to greater social mobility: as we saw how the other half lived, we were free to aspire to emulate it. Mass production of cheap cultural artefacts led us all to fill our homes with…

Ventajas y Desventajas de las redes sociales más populares

¿Una o múltiples inteligencias?

Originalmente publicado en Debajo del árbol:

Tenemos una o varias inteligencias ¿tu qué piensas?

Por mucho tiempo se consideró que el ser humano tenía una sóla inteligencia, una inteligencia general y se diseñaron test para evaluarla y poder predecir el grado de éxito o fracaso que podría llegar a tener la gente, tanto dentro de la escuela como en su desempeño en la vida laboral.

A finales del siglo XIX y principios del s. XX, Alfred Binet junto con Theodore Simon diseñan un test para medir la inteligencia, con el propósito de identificar a los alumnos que requerían de una educación especial. Así nace la escala Binet-Simon que pone las semillas para la psicometría, y a los cientos de test que surgieron después con la intención de medir, clasificar y esquematizar.

¿Por qué consideramos a una persona inteligente? ¿Por qué tiene un puntaje alto de Coeficiente Intelectual? ¿Por qué saca muchos 9 y 10 en la…

A partir de la implementación de estas tecnologías en la enseñanza se han desarrollado nuevas metodologías en las que se incluye la modalidad virtual y el llamado blended e-learning.

Se sabe que los alumnos pueden aprender de dos formas, de  manera memorística o de un modo que les permita lograr un aprendizaje significativo que, en muchas ocasiones, implica que se realicen actividades prácticas que faciliten el conocimiento a través de la experiencia.

Para diseñar un material de e-learning debemos tener en cuenta en primer lugar al alumno. Después se debe tomar en cuenta el programa para poder diseñar los materiales con el contenido…

Cool webinars for Open Education Week 2014

Originalmente publicado en Institute of Learning Innovation Blog:

This year Open Education Week falls 10 March through 14 March 2014.  What is Open Education Week, I hear someone ask? Open Education Week raises awareness of the open education movement and its impact on teaching and learning worldwide. Open education encompasses notions of open educational resources or OER, open courses such as MOOCs, and other open practices.
