Didàctica de les Ciències Socials i TIC

S’explica que si un monjo del segle XIV arribés, a través del temps, al nostre país, probablement quedaria astorat en veure els cotxes i avions, la televisió i els mòbils, els ordinadors i l’electricitat, el genoma humà i la realitat virtual…., però que segurament recuperaria la calma en entrar en una escola o universitat i retrobar-se amb el ritme, les pautes, els manuals i el sistema d’impartir docència.

aula_tradicionalEns cal modificar aquest paradigma d’ensenyament-aprenentatge no per l’existència d’Internet o de les xarxes socials, ni tampoc per la incorporació dels ordinadors a l’aula, ni…  Ens cal construir un nou model perquè ha perdut validesa un dels pilars que van ser sòlids fins a l’era industrial i que van començar a entrar en crisi a partir del segle XIX: el coneixement perenne.

Podem dir que fins fa quatre dècades una persona al llarg de la seva vida no registrava grans canvis en el Saber amb majúscula. Tot el que aprenia en la seva joventut a l’escola elemental o superior li resultava útil i aplicable al llarg de la seva vida. El coneixement registrava canvis i evolucions, però a un ritme que gairebé no afectava la formació dels individus.

Així, un cop superada la infantesa, els individus es formaven en l’aprenentatge d’un ofici i la resta de les seves vides la dedicaven -parlant en termes generals- al desenvolupament, perfeccionament i adquisició d’experiència en relació amb aquest ofici.

En les últimes dècades aquesta situació ha canviat radicalment: La ràpida evolució de moltes disciplines fa que tot especialista hagi de menester cursos de reciclatge, formació contínua, aprenentatge de nous mòduls, etc. La majoria de les persones passen per diverses ocupacions, diversos treballs, i adopten diversos rols i necessiten tenir diverses capacitats i competències. Les dedicacions laborals no responen a uns perfils professionals clars i definits, homologats amb els diplomes consegüents.

ordinador_profeEl sistema educatiu hauria de preparar l’individu per al tipus de treball predominant en la societat interconnectada del segle XXI, el «treball del coneixement», basat en: capacitats d’anàlisi crítica ben desenvolupades, per tal de seleccionar la informació, i en un alt grau de creativitat, per tal de desenvolupar els nous coneixements que puguin suposar un avantatge competitiu per a la seva organització

La tasca d’aquests treballadors consistirà a renovar constantment el procés de creació de coneixements i a mantenir-se sempre com a capdavanters en aquesta cursa. Atès que els programes informàtics aniran substituint les tasques rutinàries, la feina de creació de coneixements esdevindrà l’única àrea d’ocupació on l’ésser humà podrà destacar.

L’objectiu de la formació serà, doncs, l’adquisició de les habilitats necessàries per a poder arribar a ser un bon treballador del coneixement. En aquest context, quines són les habilitats i competències que haurà de dominar el futur treballador del coneixement? I quines metodologies, quins processos d’aprenentatge i quines tipologies de continguts s’hauran de tenir en compte per a definir el nou currículum educatiu?

meninasLes tecnologies són útils, però no suficients. No n’hi ha prou amb tecnologia. Són, cada cop més, «condició necessària» per a la renovació educativa, però no són «condició suficient». Tant o més important que la infrastructura (el campus virtual, les connexions telemàtiques, l’e-mail, els wikis, els weblogs, els e-portfolis, el programaris de tecnologia educativa…) és la infoestructura (els continguts i les capacitats de les persones per a utilitzar-los adientment). Recordem, un cop més, les paraules del director de cinema Eisenstein: «D’un bon guió en pot sortir una bona pel·lícula».

Aquesta és, doncs, una assignatura l’objectiu de la qual és aprendre a escriure els nous «guions» que necessita l’ensenyament-aprenentatge de la societat del coneixement.

  1. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  2. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  3. Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  4. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  5. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  8. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.

  9. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  10. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  12. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  14. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  22. I just want to say I am newbie to weblog and actually liked your web-site. Probably I’m going to bookmark your blog post . You actually come with really good articles and reviews. With thanks for sharing with us your website.

  23. This is a new list for today. I’m sorry about the last two lists. You may find some proxies not working the way they should. There was also duplicates in the list. I’m still learning about free public proxies. I hope you can make good use out of this list.
