Confronting the fear and challenge of a new curriculum - The Learner's Way - 6 views

  •  
    Our learners will never now a world where Digital Technologies are not the norm. Using solutions developed within this space and with this mindset is already their normal. Unless they are to be slaves to this technology we must also empower them to be creators of digital solutions. To do this we must begin with recognising the challenges that a curriculum built around mastery of Digital Technologies brings to our teachers and seek to understand the supports they require.

A curriculum built on the fundamental questions of our disciplines - The Learner's Way - 6 views

  •  
    As we make plans for how we will engage our students in their learning the decisions we make become fundamental to how they will grow to understand the purposes of learning. How our learners approach the curriculum and the disciplines is fundamental to the outcomes we may achieve for them. One path will set them up to view learning as the acquisition of information the other to see it as a process of asking and exploring questions of significance through the many unique lenses.

What if? Reflections from the ACSA Conference - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    Last week I spent three days thinking about curriculum and all that it means to teaching and learning thanks to the Australian Curriculum Studies Association's biannual conference. It was three days of deeply thoughtful conversation and learning with just the right mix of academic research and ideas for grounded practice straight out of innovative classrooms and schools. With keynotes by Alan Reid, Dan Haesler, Bob Lingard, Robert Randall and Jan Owen combined with Masterclasses from some of Australia's leading educators there was much on offer. The biggest challenge was deciding which workshop you would attend when every session offered such outstanding opportunities.

Shaping the Curriculum - Exploring Integration - The Learner's Way - 11 views

  •  
    After two days of talking about curriculum, integration, STEM, STEAM and HASS I am left with more questions than I started with. In some respects, the concept of curriculum integration is simple. It is after all something that Primary teachers almost take for granted. But for Senior and Tertiary educators the question of curriculum integration is inherently complex. At all levels questions emerge of what curriculum integration might achieve, what purposes it serves, what it could and should look like and how it should be supported by curriculum planners. In the current climate, with its debate around the role of education within an innovation economy, shaped by technology and confronting demands for a STEAM enabled workforce the shape of our curriculum is under pressure.

BBC - Schools: Educational resources from the BBC - 40 views

  •  
    Many educational resources from the BBC - separated by level. Although with a "British" twist for vocabulary, well worth checking out. The "questionnaut" on the KS2 Bitesize page is quite different than typical US review games.

Subject Matters: Why students fall behind on history - CNN.com - 22 views

  • "I think they learn information by itself, in isolation," Frazer said of his students. "But putting the big picture together is not happening."
  • History is not an area that requires testing under the federal No Child Left Behind Act, so it often gets shortchanged
  • "The only issue that I have with what I teach is, I wish I had time to go deeper,"
  • ...3 more annotations...
  • "You have to take away time from the bigger topics in order to make sure you cover small details, just because they could appear on the state exam,"
  • constantly weighing how much "trivia"
  • Because some of that material was covered as long ago as eighth grade, Frazer must take time to review so his students can pass the high school test.
