ALA Midwinter signage in DenverOn the call were Kate Kosturki, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Diane Huckaby, Maurice Coleman, Paul Signorelli, and Samantha (Sam) Becker. We talked about winning the war on complacency in education.    We need to illuminate exemplars and expose people to different ways of engaging learners.  Can we learn from our own experiences?

As teachers, we need to help students/learners to understand how to learn better.  We can’t just teach them the subject, but how the student can learn more about it in the future.

Technology are not a meaningless set of tools.  We need to understand how to use the technology in meaningful ways to meet our goals.

All stakeholders need to come together to think about how various disciplines play together, and how learned can acquire multi-interdisciplinary skills.

Students/learners need to acquire foundational, core and specialty skills.  Sam noted that there are a broad range of foundational skills which people need. Some of this might be done through personalized learning.   Jill noted that the acquisition of those foundational, core and specialty skills might occur with technology being a means or clue.

This conversation connected to our previous conversation with Jonathan Nalder. Sam and Jonathan have worked together and she is was part of the genesis of  First on Mars.

What are some simple things we can do to help our folks get to a place where they can be successful with technology?

  • Digital literacy initiatives
  • Space for collaboration using technology
  • Space for using technology
  • Building in professional development for staff, so staff can then support technology learning

What’s the first thing you would say directly to trainer-teacher-learners to reverse that the part of learning that is passive (referred to in our conversation as the 90% piece of the pie)?  We talked about several solutions.

Question: Can we do personalization at scale?  What can we do face-to-face as well as online?

You can listen to the entire conversation on the TalkShoe website, as well as through your favorite podcast service (e.g., iTunes).  And don’t forget to rate the show, so we might get a rating that shows during our 10th year!

Constraint

Constraint

On the call were Kate Kosturski (moderator), Paul Signorelli, Henry Mensch (newbie), Angela Paterek, Diane Huckaby, Jules Shore, and Jill Hurst-Wahl.  We talked about the article, How Constraints Can Stimulate Creative Learning Opportunities, which includes a link to a 5-minute video.  Our stories included ideas of creativity in training, improv classes, and more.

By the way,  when we came up with today’s title, Jules chimed in with (from Only the Good Die Young): “I’d rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints. The sinners have much more fun.” When you are faced with a constraint, you need to be able to smile, laugh, and move forward.

It was a good conversation today and we hope you’ll give it a listen.

Spring flowersWith spring weather back again in the East, on the call were Diane Huckaby, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, and Maurice Coleman.   Our conversation twas on how to create training (or education) materials that could be reused by others.  The conversation was really rich and fruitful!
