WHY PROGRESSIVE EDUCATORS ARE RE-TRAINING STAFF TO BE AND CREATE THRIVING, EFFECTIVE LEARNERS:

Since the very first computers were introduced, the question has been asked - do such tools effect thinking, and thus learning and Education? 

The resounding answer from the 1940's to today has been yes. And yet two different models have emerged as to how computing tools should be used. The first chooses to focus on the technology itself, but the second, which research has proven is effective, focuses on the task.

SCROLL DOWN to learn about which model you may have adopted, or begin your journey now.

Ineffective Model

Technology will always be ineffective at improving education when it falls victim to the 'Shiny Object Syndrome' where the tech itself becomes the focus. Often in this scenario it is assumed that the very presence of digital technology in teacher and student hands will of itself be enough. Because this approach focuses so heavily on the tool, often vital planning and training are neglected, and the technology only serves to reinforce the traditional learning that was already occurring.

Have you inadvertently begun using this model? JNXYZ can help you audit your practice to find out.

Effective Model

For technology to be effective at improving teaching and learning, the focus of planning and training must remain on the learning goals and tasks that schools and universities have already determined as priorities. In this scenario, technology becomes only another tool for achieving these goals, and is only adopted if it does in fact provide a way to improve educational outcomes, and eventually allow the tasks to be redefined.

This is the type of focus that JNXYZ can help you move to and maintain and grow over time.

HOW?

By listening to your needs, and helping you with strategic planning that focuses on integrating tech in ways that supports your learning tasks, and not the other way around.

We will achieve this focus in particular by drawing on the Challenge Based Learning and SAMR frameworks to move your staff and students from merely using technology as a substitute for what you were already doing, to a place where you can begin to redefine your learning tasks to address the challenges that educators and students face as the digital revolution really picks up speed.

The bottom line of such a redefinition is improved student outcomes, increased staff engagement, and a more effective learning community overall.

About Jonathan


 

All about my aims and experience in delivering effective EdTech training and planning

Hi. I'm Jonathan Nalder, founder of JNXYZ Education, and I believe education matters. 

I'm also enthusiastic about the way mobile technology and learning can transform lives. I live and breathe this stuff, including for over 15 years as an educator, and 10 years 'doing' tech and innovation to advise and train educators. Every day I spend up to 90 mins researching technology and education so I can distill this together with my own experience as a planner, teacher, writer and parent so you don't have to.

In this way, I can speak to eLearning, strategic planning, innovation and creativity, iPads and tablets, mobile learning, wearables, future tech, Citizen Science, App wokflows, iBeacons, Wearables, online tools, Mac apps (iWork and iLife), Early Childhood, K-12, Tertiary, Challenge and Project based learning, and the SAMR learning model.
