36氪领读 | 苹果教育副总裁谈学习场景:营火、水源、洞穴和山顶

Jun 18, 2019

所以,教育的改革最先需要有目的性地建设这样的学习环境。在《学习的升级》这本书中,长期担任苹果教育副总裁的约翰•库奇(John Couch)指出了学习场景的4大分类,以及如何有目的地将学习场景和技术结合。 有史以来,人类的学习场景可以分为4类,分别是:营火、水源、洞穴和山顶。学习效果最佳的学校和教室都包含了上述这些空间的某种形式。 营火:一对多学习模式 营火,是一对多的学习模式,通常是一个人同时对很多人说话。传统的线下授课、公开演讲、讲座,以及目前线上的音频视频知识服务,就是典型的营火场景。 在这种形式中,通常是某位老师一边在教室里劲头十足地走来走去,一边向学生讲课,或是某位嘉宾分享他来自现实生活的智慧,使理论变得生动起来。 如果方式恰当,一对多模式也能取得良好的效果。但是,目前大部分学校都在使用错误的方式。教师站在讲台上像根木头一样地用单调的声线讲课,学生们在讲台下面昏昏欲睡,这也是一对多模式的一种形式,但这可不是营火!并且,在这种方式中,老师、演讲人作为主导,手握巨大的权力,他们决定采选哪些知识交付给学生和用户。这会导致一个问题,那就是你学习的范围已经被框定了,它的上限就是传授者的知识上限。 如今,技术使得人们能以数字和虚拟方式体验以学习为目的的营火。举个例子,职场中我们可以用微信或现场直播等方式进行视频会议。在美国的很多小学,学生们通过Skype定期参与线上营火,工程师、科学家和畅销书的作者们即使身处世界的另一端,也能和学生们聚在这里分享知识和经验,进行实时问答。 重塑教育并不意味着完全摒弃像一对多这样的传统教学方法;而是意味着确保在用传统方法教学时,能够吸引学生,而不是让他们昏昏欲睡。
