NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/056 Some Foundational and Overview Ideas Dave Moursund University of Oregon
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/057 Paradigm Shifts par·a·digm (noun) 1. a typical example of something 2. an example that serves as a pattern or model for something, especially one that forms the basis of a methodology or theory Example of a paradigm shift: Shifting from oral tradition to written tradition.
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/058 Some Paradigm Shifts in Education 1. Free, required public education. 2. Technology such as ball point pen. 3. Teaching science and scientific method. 4. United States Public Law 94-142 (1975). 5. Presentation media used in schools. 6. Calculators and computers. 7. Internet and Web. 8. Asynchronous distance learning.
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/0510 Upper Limit Theory In the US, scores in the 3 Rs have been stable for about 40 years. Robert Branson (1987 and thereafter) argues we have nearly reached an Upper Limit for teacher centered and teaching centered K-12 education. We need a paradigm shift if we want to break out of this situation.
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/0512 Some Proposed Paradigm Shifts Shift to learner and learning centered. Computer-assisted learning and distance learning routine in instructional delivery. Problem solving and roles of ICT in problem solving at the core of every discipline. Students to assume steadily increasing responsibility for their own education. Project-based and problem-based education. ICT as one of the “basics.”

NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/0518 A Worldwide Paradigm Shift Continuing growth in “outsourcing” of manufacturing to lower cost locations. Worldwide competition for “knowledge worker” jobs that can be accomplished via telecommunications.
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/0519 Problem of Information Overload Reframing the problem. We have: 1. Problem and complexity overload. 2. Complexity is steadily growing. a.Some is “artificial,” created by ads and the media. b.Some is real and very important. 3. Not enough information, knowledge, skills, aids, and time to deal with all the problems and complexity we encounter.
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/0520 The Problem and Complexity Overload Situation We have personal physical, mental, and fiscal resources, including our education, knowledge, and skills. There are aids to physical and mental resources that we can learn to directly use by ourselves. Through education and experience we can learn to do lots of things for ourselves. There are aids to physical and mental resources that we contract to be done for us. We need money or other barter resources to pay for these.
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/0521 A Race Involving: Totality of human knowledge doubling every 5-10 years or so. ICT systems capabilities doubling every 1.5 to 2 years, but eventually this amazing rate of growth will end. Development of better aids to humans. Improving education of humans.
NECC SIGTE Workshop 6/26/0522 Education and Complexity Overload Educators do not control the rate of growth in totality of human knowledge or the rate of increase in ICT capabilities. Teachers of teachers have considerable influence in the preparation of teachers and their students to learn to make effective use of the available information & other problem-solving aids.
