Teaching climate science & action - the 4-7 year old version - 0 views

  •  
    "Teaching climate science & action can seem daunting: for university-level lecturers, Teaching to younger children can be quite intimidating. For primary-level teachers, the science and scope can seem too vast and fast changing to cover. For everyone, the content can be overwhelming. As adults, how do we present this topic to children: give them the information they need without crushing them? I decided to face the challenge, and over the course of one rather sleepless night, put together some materials for my 6 year-old son's class. This post summarizes and communicates that experience, in the hope that others can take ideas and inspiration, and will be encouraged to volunteer to teach about climate in primary schools. Teaching and engagement in schools is now part of all of our work, as researchers, academics, parents, activists, advocates, so I hope this idea spreads. The 4-part lesson plan worked quite well: the topics & materials held the children's attention, gave them varied aspects to think about and interact with, and they seemed to come away with deeper understanding. The whole thing took roughly 1 hour. This is doable!"

Una tiza y tú: Cultura de Pensamiento: Aprender y enseñar a pensar - 1 views

  •  
    "Muchas veces hemos invitado a nuestros alumnos a "pensarlo mejor" o a sentarse en la "silla de pensar" para que piensen, sin embargo no hemos integrado en la escuela el hecho de enseñar a pensar de forma organizada, sistemática y concreta. Es cierto que son muchos los momentos en los que provocamos en nuestros alumnos para que piensen, los propios contenidos curriculares lo hacen necesario y en la mayoría de ocasiones se consigue el objetivo pero normalmente no hacemos visible ese pensamiento. Dar visibilidad al pensamiento supone hacer a los alumnos conscientes del hecho de pensar, para ello debemos ofrecerles herramientas que les ayuden a identificar el tipo de pensamiento que están utilizando y los pasos que siguen en cada uno de ellos. Lo que ocurre es que normalmente, centramos nuestra atención en lo pensado y no reparamos en la acción de pensar. Al pensar efectuamos muchos procesos: crear, decidir, juzgar, describir, predecir, sintetizar, deducir… etc. etc. etc… Sin embargo, llevar a cabo estos procesos no es exactamente pensar. Estas son las destrezas de pensamiento,pero, ejecutadas mecánica o aisladamente, no suponen verdadero pensamiento. Es necesaria una ejecución consciente de estos procesos para que puedan considerarse pensar. El Centro Nacional para la Enseñanza del Pensamiento (es decir: el National Center for Teaching Thinking, NCTT) es una organización radicada en Massachussets, en Estados Unidos, concebida y dirigida por Robert Swartz, profesor emérito en la Universidad de Massachussets y filósofo de formación, que cuenta con una contrastada trayectoria profesional en el ámbito de la pedagogía y el estudio del aprendizaje. Las destrezas que se persigue desarrollar en los estudiantes tienen que ver fundamentalmente con el pensamiento crítico y creativo. Se trata de que los estudiantes desarrollen hábitos de pensamiento que les sean útiles en su vida diaria, a la vez que se hacen conscientes de sus propios procesos menta

Do mobile devices in the classroom really improve learning outcomes? - 0 views

  •  
    Artículo en inglés... "Mobile devices as teaching tools are becoming a more and more common part of the American education experience in classrooms, from preschool through graduate school. A recent Pew Research Center survey found that 58% of U.S. teachers own smartphones - 10 percentage points higher than the national average for adults. Those teachers are building that tech-savviness into their lesson plans, too, by embracing bring-your-own-device policies and leading the push for an iPad for every student. In 2013, an estimated 25% of U.S. schools had BYOD policies in place and it's reasonable to assume those numbers have risen in the past two years. ..."

What's Wrong with MOOCs and Why Aren't They Working? - 1 views

  •  
    "there is no live teacher engagement... Currently, just 10 percent of MOOC registrants complete their courses. Where Will MOOCs Be Just Two Years From Now? Within the next two years, MOOCs will quickly evolve from lacking teacher engagement to having a lot of teacher engagement. Right now, it's essentially a model where computers are teaching students. This model is simply not sustainable in the long run without live student-teacher engagement. Teachers are the key that unlocks learning in these courses. They help students resolve issues and problems. Will the biggest change in online education moving forward be putting live teachers at the center of the MOOC (not just on video)? We will know the answer very soon."

Small Changes in Teaching: The First 5 Minutes of Class - 0 views

  •  
    "Open with a question or two. Another favorite education writer of mine, the cognitive psychologist Daniel Willingham, argues that teachers should focus more on the use of questions. "The material I want students to learn," he writes in his book Why Don't Students Like School?, "is actually the answer to a question. On its own, the answer is almost never interesting. But if you know the question, the answer may be quite interesting." My colleague Greg Weiner, an associate professor of political science, puts those ideas into practice. At the beginning of class, he shows four or five questions on a slide for students to consider. Class then proceeds in the usual fashion. At the end, he returns to the questions so that students can both see some potential answers and understand that they have learned something that day. What did we learn last time? A favorite activity of many instructors is to spend a few minutes at the opening of class reviewing what happened in the previous session. That makes perfect sense, and is supported by the idea that we don't learn from single exposure to material - we need to return frequently to whatever we are attempting to master.But instead of offering a capsule review to students, why not ask them to offer one back to you?Reactivate what they learned in previous courses. Plenty of excellent evidence suggests that whatever knowledge students bring into a course has a major influence on what they take away from it. So a sure-fire technique to improve student learning is to begin class by revisiting, not just what they learned in the previous session, but what they already knew about the subject matter.Write it down. All three of the previous activities would benefit from having students spend a few minutes writing down their responses. That way, every student has the opportunity to answer the question, practice memory retrieval from the previous session, or surface their prior knowledge - and not just the students most likely to
