What's in this episode? Takahashi was recently nominated for the prestigious Varkey Foundation Global Teacher Prize, often referred as the Nobel Prize in education, for his work in the classroom and contributions to society. Takahashi, the first candidate from Japan, is among 50 nominees selected from 8,000 candidates representing 148 countries

Content:
Interview with Takahashi and his students at Kogakuin University Junior High-School, Senior High-school in order to get some insights in his work and teaching methods.

Subjects covered:
Takahashi’s journey from PHD studies to teacher and his aspiration to ‘pay it forward’
Thoughts on creating more independent learners in a system devoted to ‘cramming’
Which theorists in cognitive science and learning design does Takahashi follow
The difference in conditions and opportunities for teachers in independent and state schools in Japan
Working with Lego to promote project based learning and launching his own edtech incubator
Challenging a system of education built on teacher sacrifice to create something more sustainable
An inspirational message to all educators at the end of his interview

Sample Quotations: My life has been blessed with good teachers. So I wanted to pay a reward toward the next generation.
I learned how to teach based on science.
In Japanese schools the test score is everything. Learning should be tangible.
Students can express their heart, their thoughts making LEGOs.
You can learn project management with LEGO.
Students started to work independently, that’s wonderful!
I.C.T. means I can be connected with students 24 hours.
Old teaching style is just lecturing students. Sit down, be quiet. I’m teaching you have to be still. But like that it’s not fun.
You should have fun in class.
Japanese students are very dependent on some things like repetitions, companies’ names. They have to follow some kind of specific track.
Students are always evaluated within the school, but this world is very wide!

Content:
TEACHING TO THE TEXT: TEXTBOOKS OR TECHNOLOGY? #battleofideas debate recorded at the Barbican with
Susanna Goldschmidt, Head of Publishing, Discovery Education
Colin Hughes, Managing Director, Collins Learning
Tim Oates, Group director of assessment research and development, Cambridge Assessment
David PerksFounder and principal, East London Science School; director, the Physics Factory
José Picardo, Assistant principal, Surbiton High School
CHAIR: Harley Richardson, Director of design and development, Discovery Education

Sample Quotations:

Harley Richardson
-Which do we need the most in the classroom: textbooks or technology?
-Textbooks or technology? We could just say a little bit of both and go home
-Many parents are concerned that mobile phones are allowed in schools

Tim Oates
-What constitutes high quality material?
-Understand the role and the function of traditional textbooks, understand what they have meant for hundreds of years to understand what we should do now
-Systematical control over textbooks is critical in reform
-Textbooks support a whole range of functions
-The best teachers around the world are those who are supportive of best quality textbooks
-In Finland textbooks still are seen as steering mechanism for education -
Textbooks provide a schema. They provide the shape of a subject. Digital performs differently

David Perks
-If textbooks are the answer, what is the question?
-What does a good textbook look like?
-Websites don͛’t last, their content is ephemeral. The whole premise in which digital has been designed is ephemeral and not long-standing
-If you want to take notes use a pen, don͛t use a laptop because it goes in much better if you use a pen
-When kids use technology is not the same as us using it -Google doesn’t teach, we do

Jose Picardo
-Textbooks and technology, rather than textbooks or technology. Both are useful, both facilitate learning
-Does a textbook need to be in print form? Cannot it be in digital form?
-Digital resources are dismissed often for the wrong reason
-What students prefer may not always be what͛’s best for them
-Spaced studying, interleaving topics, frequent load testing have improved teaching and learning
-Pairing texts with interactive graphics to help conceptualisation
-Featuring sound and video-recordings are great for languages teaching and learning
-The focus should be on how can we make these resources work better
-What learners prefer to do often goes against what cognitive psychology tells us is best

Colin Hughes
-Digital is dynamic, is connected
-Why 14% of time in UK classrooms use any kind of digital materials at all? Maybe 14% is about right actually. For the rest of the world is about 4%
-Adapted learning platforms are going to be unbelievably useful
-It͛’s about defining what can that particular technology do that the other can͛’t
-The use of printed revision guides is way stronger
-Textbooks are not a substitute for quality teaching or indeed teacher knowledge

 Susanna Goldschmidt
-Comparing textbooks with tech is like comparing a theological treatise with an encyclopedia
-How could a textbook evocate for the plurality of options that now face subject teachers?
-Digital media lend themselves brilliantly to expanding horizons
-Digital activities encourage students to engage actively in what they͛re learning
-Technology offers tools capable of liberating teachers from drudge work allowing them to focus on the real business of teaching
-Hybrids, digital textbooks called ͚techbooks͛ combine the substance of textbooks with the attributes of digital
School is not just about learning what the curriculum stipulates should be learned. It͛s also about expanding horizons, transformative experiences.
-Textbooks or Technology? Both

Oct 23, 2016

This episode was recorded at The Edtech Podcast Launch Party at Loughborough University London. 

 

What's in this episode?

The Edtech Podcast LIVE podcast panel with: 

  • Tolu Oyenola, Computing Co-Ordinator, Lauriston Primary School
  • Mark Anderson a.k.a ICT Evangelist, award-winning blogger and speaker
  • Jen Lexmond, Founder, EasyPeasy
  • Alex Flowers, Team Leader, Digital Programmes, Victoria and Albert Museum
  • Joe Dale, 'a one-stop-Twitter-shop for ideas, inspiration and Modern Foreign Language friends' #MFLtwitterati

The panel centres around how to improve the dialogue between 'ed' and 'tech' with a view to better innovation, with some fascinating discussions and questions around whether Edtech is a useful phrase, whether efficacy is an expensive red herring and whether small changes or wholesale re-wiring is the future of education. I hope you enjoy and as ever tweet or send in your thoughts to theedtechpodcast@gmail.com

What's in this episode?

Full length rough cut interview with Sam Patterson, Puppet Master & Makerspace Coordinator, Echo Horizon School, San Francisco 

We talk about the cross over between humanities and computing, engaging students in creative activities and questions, using puppets as avatars to open up teaching and learning opportunities, and the promise of voice recorded feedback as an alternative to the marking slog. This is the full length Sam Patterson episode, following on from the #30 KANO takeover which you can listen in to here: http://theedtechpodcast.libsyn.com/30-kano-takeover-creative-computing-in-schools-maker-spaces-and-libraries

Sample quotes:

Interview with Sam Patterson, Puppet Master & Makerspace Coordinator, Echo Horizon School, San Francisco 
‘I came to maker space teaching through English. I call myself a recovering English teacher.’
‘Kids will enthusiastically respond to things they are actually interested and as the maker space teacher i can get them interested in things.’
‘If you want to figure out how to do that difficult thing you’re going to need to READ the instructions.’
‘Everything we are doing in that space essential hinges on the central literacy activities of reading and writing.’
‘The more tech that becomes available the more opportunity that teachers have to create choice.’

‘I’ve got one puppet who has 3 legs in his chest. his name is notorious LED. I’m always looking for more ideas.'

‘the human voice carries a lot of information; giving students feedback is an emotionally charged situation’

'then i started telling people it meant puppets and technology usually excellent!'

‘i wonder if i can make puppets’? ‘the kids were like why are you making all these puppets.’?

Have a good week!

Welcome to Bett as new media partner of The Edtech Podcast

Welcome to SowingX Capital as new sponsor

What's in this episode?

  • Word from ELTjam 0-1.15
  • Intro 1.30-4.00, including hello to SowingX Capital
  • Interview with iChamps Courtney Rowan and Clarissa Chay (4:00-20:00) on:

What is the iChamps programme?

How did they get on the programme?

What opportunities does it offer them/staff?

What are their favourite apps/tools?

Next steps after University using digital skills

Evidencing your skills

  • Word from ClearlySo 20:00-20.45
  • Interview with Stephan Caspar (20.45 - 50:00), Media Development Lead, from the Institute for Learning Innovation and Development at the University of Southampton on:

Experiences working in the Media, FE and HE sectors. What does a culture of innovation look like?

The importance of sharing the value of academic research through storytelling in a post-Brexit age

Favourite tools/apps and trends

Shout outs to other innovators in HE/FE

  • Outro, Word from Firefly Learning, and the upcoming KANO Takeover episode

 

Sample Quotes, iChamps:

‘Rather than just talking to people about the technology, it’s ten times better to show people first hand.’

‘If you put in a bit of effort it can really pay off - especially for the students.’

‘There’s been other students at conferences that we’ve been to. There was a student panel at the JISC conference. Although they do similar things, it’s still quite different.’

‘We are treated equally with the staff that we work with. We get a lot of respect from them and they encourage our ideas.’

‘Our digital skills that we’ve learnt have already been so applicable even before we’ve gone on to an actual job.’

‘Our Pathbrite portfolios give a direct representation of all the work that we’ve done.’

Sample Quotes, Stephan Caspar:

If you have an idea and you want to create some resource around that then I’ve got a team who will help you.

The BBC and HE have been very similar. Change happens very slowly. In FE it’s much more agile.

FE is always being squeezed; there is a resourcefulness that people have when that starts to happen.

In many ways I’ve found the most innovative teachers have been the ones in FE.

The people that I’ve met who are real go-getters in HE have come from an FE background.

You learn to travel at speed and then when you arrive in HE…it’s a little bit slower.

Many people phone me up and say Stephan I want a video. We have a conversation about pedagogy and I send them away with a group flipchart activity.

It’s very important to give teaching and learning the same status that research has.

I really want people to not just consume content, but create content as well.

I want students to be reflective practitioners

In the end what I’m trying to do is get away from twelve lectures and an exam
