3 Ways to Help Learners Find Their Own Answers Before Asking You - 4 views

  •  
    "Teachers strive to help learners find their own answers by doing one thing-giving them the skills to do so. Although this seems like a tall order, in reality it's simpler than you think. Part of it resides in ensuring students know they have options for this.

    Exploring these options is the essence of philosophy of 3B4ME. If you haven't heard of it, we discovered it on Adam Schoenbart's blog. It's an ingenious way to help learners find their own answers using simple paths to discovery. Using this strategy, learners can seek answers on their own-and usually find them-before needing to resort to asking a teacher."

    "Do you like change? If you do, then living in the present is an exhilarating experience.  For those who don't, buckle up as we are only going to see unprecedented innovations at exponential rates involving technology.  You can't run or hide from it. The revolution, or evolution depending on your respective lens, of our world, will transform everything as we know it. We must adapt, but more importantly, prepare our learners for a bold new world that is totally unpredictable.  Welcome to the Fourth Industrial Revolution.  "

Becoming Learners: Making time for OUR Learning - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    At the heart of all that we do as teachers lies the act of learning. Our hope is that our actions inspire our students to engage in a process that results in their acquisition of new knowledge, mastery of new skills and the development of capacities and dispositions which will prepare them for life beyond our classrooms. Increasingly our focus is on developing the skills and dispositions our students require to become life-long learners. We recognise that in a rapidly changing world, the capacity to take charge of your personal learning journey, to become self-navigating learners is essential.

7 Strategies for Getting Your Learners to Start Thinking Independently - 4 views

  •  
    "Many people believe getting our learners to begin thinking independently is the main goal of education. "Teach students so that they don't need the teacher." But what if that wasn't the case? What if there were something higher than independence? After all, Stephen Covey reminds us: independent thinking alone is not suited to interdependent reality.
    Thinking independently comes as a part of working together collaboratively. In order to get there, these are the stages that we want to lead our students through: dependence to independence to interdependence. If we can get them from dependence to independence, we're almost there. Interdependence comes with applying their hard-earned skills toward relationship building.
    How are we going to help our students to start thinking independently so that they may eventually use those skills in practicing interdependence?"

Beginning the School Year: It's About the Learners Not the Content | User Generated Edu... - 1 views

  •  
    "Too many classes, all grade levels, begin the school year with getting down to academic business - starting to cover content, discussing expectations regarding academic requirements, giving tests, and other academic information provided by the teacher to the students in a mostly one-way communication.  The human or social element is often disregarded.

    I believe that all classes should begin with focusing on having the students make connections between themselves and the educator; and between one another.  I want students to learn about one another in a personal way.  I want to learn about my students so my instructional strategies can be more personalized and tailored to their needs and interests.  Beginning class with a focus on connections rather than content gives learners the following messages:"

Helping Learners Move Beyond "I Can't Do This" | User Generated Education - 0 views

  •  
    "I work part-time with elementary learners - with gifted learners during the school year and teaching maker education camps during the summer. The one thing almost all of them have in common is yelling out, "I can't do this" when the tasks aren't completed upon first attempts or get a little too difficult for them. I partially blame this on the way most school curriculum is structured. Too much school curriculum is based on paper for quick and one shot learning experiences (or the comparable online worksheets). Students are asked to do worksheets on paper, answer end-of-chapter questions on paper, write essays on paper, do math problems on paper, fill in the blanks on paper, and pick the correct answer out of a multiple choice set of answers on paper. These tasks are then graded as to the percentage correct and then the teacher moves onto the next task.

    So it is no wonder that when learners are given hands-on tasks such as those common to maker education, STEM, and STEAM, they sometimes struggle with their completion. Struggles are good. Struggles with authentic tasks mimics real life so much more than completing those types of tasks and assessments done at most schools.

    Problems like yelling out, "I can't do this" arise when the tasks get a little too difficult, but ultimately are manageable. I used to work with delinquent kids within Outward Bound-type programs. Most at-risk kids have some self-defeating behaviors including those that result in personal failure. The model for these types of programs is that helping participants push past their self-perceived limitations results in the beginnings of a success rather than a failure orientation. This leads into a success building upon success behavioral cycle."
