La escuela para el siglo XXI: Retorno al Batey

En una época se intentó convertir las escuelas en "Centros de rehabilitación social". Hoy propongo convertirlas en un Batey, la ancestral arena, rodeado de la naturaleza como laboratorio. Con la única diferencia de que el emisor-actor no sería el Bohíque “todo-lo-sabe-cura”, ni el maestro “sabelotodo”, sino el alumno “sabe-nada”. Esta propuesta acarrearía la 'maldición' a los empresarios favorecidos por los políticos, y a los líderes magisteriales obsesionados con la falta…

El fracaso escolar sin TIC

Recuerdo que en el período que obtuve el número mayor de fracasos escolares fue cuando utilizaba el lápiz y la libreta para dibujar (era mi afición y adicción) y no para tomar notas y hacer las asignaciones escolares-aburridas. CONTINÚA>>

A quick post tonight. I was on the Writers' Club today, just checking out the writing kids are sharing, and I stumbled across this post by hibaf, a student author from Lahore American School, Pakistan.

The Tipping Point

I've just finished 'The Tipping Point' by Malcolm Gladwell. The central thesis of the book is that little things can make a big difference when an idea goes 'viral'. For example, Gladwell recounts Lester Wunderman's successful ad campaign in selling mail order records...

The key to Wunderman's success was…

Ineficaz "un ordenador por niño"

Lo veía venir. Y mientras más grande el equipo, más ineficaz. La mayor ventaja que tienen los ordenadores en la sala de clase es su propiedad lúdica. Pero el juguete sale demasiado caro para el uso que se le puede dar. CONTINÚA>>

Las TIC empeoran la enseñanza en la sala

«Ningún estudio serio, en ninguna parte del mundo, ha puesto de manifesto hasta ahora que las nuevas tecnologías por sí mismas mejoren la calidad de la enseñanza en primaria y secundaria», ha dicho esta mañana Mariano del Castillo, director del Instituto de Técnicas Educativas de CECE (Confederación…

A level playing field

Reposted from sbaglia.com

A slightly more critical blog post sandwiched in between the generally positive posts (I hope they are positive! They are, aren't they?).

I've been working with teachers and technology for over four years now. I'm often suggesting ways that…

Weak Ties

Reposted from sbaglia.com

If you could teach your students one lesson from outside the curriculum, what would it be?

For mine, it would be that old chestnut, "It's not what you know, it's who you know".

I used to think this phrase was a synonym for nepotism, but either I had it wrong all along or, with the advent of social media, it…

Support education renewal in two-hard hit Japanese villages

Just ten days before the Great East Japan Earthquake devastated the northeast coast of Japan, children in a remote village in southwestern Japan published a book to open the eyes of the world: Art and Life In Rural Japan: Toho Village Through the Eyes of Its Youth. In stunning photographs and simple first-person narratives, they offered…

Por fin, estamos saliendo de la PC

Desde hace años venimos diciendo que el magisterio debe ir preparando sus maletas para cuando ya nadie use las PC. Aquellos que nunca las han usado están en mejores condiciones que los adictos a la PC, al lápiz y al papel. Incluso, en una ocasión expusimos, paso por paso,…
