It’s that time of year again, exams are here. If that’s the case for you, let me give you 10 study tips you’ll never forget! Good luck.
When it comes to the Future of Learning three basic cornerstones are the principles of making it happen.
Imagine that learning is no longer a burden but an interesting, challenging, fun trip on brain island and suppose you get control over your own learning.
Wouldn’t that be great? Wouldn’t that show respect for the learner?
I won’t bother you with the same old story that educational principles of more than 100 years ago are still being used in schools today. That has been told a zillion times. Let’s look ahead and see how schools in my opinion have to shift from conformity to diversity in this post pc era.
1 The teacher is key
Even if future learning will become more and more data driven, the teacher is the human footprint in the learning process. He is the counselor, the tower of strength, the one to trust, the crucial human interface. Being an ex-teacher and ex-principal I know that machine learning alone will not deliver the best outcome. Motivation is indispensable and besides the game mechanics in the learning platform of the future the teacher is no matter what key in the learning processes.
Many people think that learning styles are a myth. Actually the word ‘styles’ is being misused here. I believe that in my many years of experience as a teacher, school leader, educational coach, publisher, content architect and e-learning specialist, ways of learning do have reasons to exist. Those who oppose think that learners are confined to just one way of learning for all subjects and for the rest of their lives. That exacly is the myth since you learn using a mix of ways of learning. As a learner, no matter what age, you have preferences. That’s it.
