6 Ways to Honor the Learning Process in Your Classroom | Edutopia - 0 views

  • Roughly put, learning is really just a growth in awareness.
  • While morsels of information -- math theorems, for example -- may not change, the context in which students use them do change. Which in turn changes how we consider and use that morsel.
  • Even what we call facts -- significant historical dates, labels for ethnic groups, causes and effects of cultural movements -- all change endlessly, if not in form (how they're discussed), then in meaning and connotation (what we think of them).

  • And thus changing how students use this skill or understanding. And thus changing how we, as teachers, "teach it."
  • This could be thought of as depth of understanding, a term that produced a depth of knowledge (DOK) framework for measuring understanding which is still used in many districts. Bloom's Taxonomy (1) or even the TeachThought Learning Taxonomy (2) are all tools to help evaluate understanding -- how well a student "gets it."
  • 1. Use Learning Taxonomies
  • 2. Use Concept Maps
  • Have students map, chart, diagram or otherwise visually represent their own learning pathways and changes in their own understanding.
  • 3. Use a Variety of Assessment Forms
  • 4. Build Metacognition into Units
  • Prime the pump by assigning students quick writing prompts about their own thinking.
  • 6. Connect Students to Networks
  • As students connect to networks, the learning process will plug them in, not just to one teacher, or 25 classmates, or eight texts, but to something much larger -- and more able to interact with students organically.
