Developing tools and models for sharing learning units

Share

How we can improve the sharing of individual learning units?

What digital tools would help us get better in sharing learning units, such as interesting lab results and experiments, filmed study visits, interesting high-level advanced simulations etc, between teachers, towards and between students, over university boundaries and internationally?

Co-create the future of education together with us!

Schools are slowly starting to look at technology as an opportunity to develop teaching methods and resonate with students on a technology level. Regardless of age, almost everyone owns a smartphone. Google is our library, and Wikipedia is our encyclopedia. Thesaurus is our dictionary, and Kindle is our textbook. At a time like this, learning to change our teaching methods by incorporating technology is the only way to bring light to the lives of our students. What are schools doing in order to bring about this change?

How to prepare for the challenge?

Teachers/researchers share research results over international boundaries, with the aim of globally enhancing knowledge and advancing research. It is however more rare that teachers exchange educational materials. Best practices are often shared and text books are written and re-used at different universities. But individual learning units (like interesting lab results, lab experiments, filmed study visits, interesting high-level advanced simulations etc.) can in today’s 4G (and soon to come 5G) environment be shared and re-used in ways that earlier was not possible. How can this be done in the future? What would the interest be among teachers to share their material? Could teachers re-use material from other sources? What would it take to “share & re-use”? Would students globally benefit from such an environment? How will this global access to sharable learning units influence university programs and teaching in the future?

Why is it important to find a solution to this challenge?

While best practices are often shared and text books are written and re-used at different universities, sharing individual learning experiences is not so common. Each good practice that produces results should be shared with other educators, who can learn from and adapt these individual learning experiences to suit their own needs.

What is the possible impact of a good solution?

More empowered educators who continuously keep improving as facilitators.

What is the expected outcome of this challenge?

Tools and techniques for sharing information, information portals, Educational Social Media platforms.

How can we predict student performance to give customised feedback?

Colombo - Making Learning Efficient

Predict performance of students by analyzing historical and current data derived from learners, in order to create models that allow for predictions that improve the learning environment.

How can you help other students succeed in a digital world?

Colombo - Making Learning Efficient

To identify and connect with the person who can offer the best help in a given scenario is a big challenge for any student. It could be a teacher, but in many cases the go to person is one of the students's peers. How can we improve this situation?
