Pre-Conference Activity - Changing Education Paradigms with Digital Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

I’d like you to encourage you to participate in the following flipped conference activity.  The main goal of this activity is to help spark fresh ideas and encourage new ways of thinking about digital learning in 21st century education as you prepare to join us for this year's conference.  However, there will be also activities at the conference that build on this pre-conference activity, so I hope that you’ll find time to participate over the coming week.  I hope you enjoy the experience!

Changing Education Paradigms with Digital Learning
1) View the following videos

  • First, view "Sir Ken Robinson - Changing Education Paradigms" to consider one viewpoint of where education has come from, where it is now, and where it should be headed, especially focusing on his concept of the need to nurture the skills of divergent thinking and collaboration.
  • Second - view "Digital Aristotle - Thoughts on the Future of Education" and consider the how elements of digital learning and the concept of a “Digital Aristotle” can help support Robinson’s goals of divergent thinking and collaboration.
    note – the viewpoints presented in the videos are not intended to represent any specific position of ESC Region XI and are intended solely to be thought-provoking for the purpose of this activity.

2) Between now and the conference, join in the Twitter Chat for this activity by Tweeting with the hashtag #sdlcflip to share and discuss your ideas with other conference attendees.
