Digital Natives: Do They Really THINK Differently? - 25 views

  •  
    by Marc Prensky Our children today are being socialized in a way that is vastly different from their parents. The
    numbers are overwhelming: over 10,000 hours playing videogames, over 200,000 emails and
    instant messages sent and received; over 10,000 hours talking on digital cell phones; over 20,000
    hours watching TV (a high percentage fast speed MTV), over 500,000 commercials seen-all
    before the kids leave college. And, maybe, at the very most, 5,000 hours of book reading. These
    are today's ―Digital Native‖ students.
    1
    In Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants: Part I, I discussed how the differences between our Digital
    Native students and their Digital Immigrant teachers lie at the root of a great many of today's
    educational problems. I suggested that Digital Natives' brains are likely physically different as a
    result of the digital input they received growing up. And I submitted that learning via digital
    games is one good way to reach Digital Natives in their ―native language.‖
    Here I present evidence for why I think this is so. It comes from neurobiology, social psychology, and from studies done on children using games for learning.

      I add all my students to a common group then create a common hashtag that can be embedded in a wiki where all students can see newly populated bookmarks and sticky notes

Learning in the age of Social Networks - The Learner's Way - 40 views

  •  
    Learning is a social endeavour. Schools need to understand that for our students the social landscape has changed. Rather than turning away from this reality we need to understand what it means and what our children need to know and learn to safely maximise the opportunities it brings.

The purposes of our pedagogy - The Learner's Way - 30 views

  •  
    The debate over the most effective method of instruction continues as ever and where one stands on the topic is largely influenced by the purposes one attaches to education. Analysing a series of research articles reveals the nature of the debate between advocates of direct instruction compared to those who support a problem based learning methodology.

Ideas - The Learner's Way - 53 views

  •  
    Ask any teacher what they wish they had more of and the most common answer is likely to be time. Schools are inherently busy places and there is always much to be done. We all want to meet the needs of every student, add value to their education with breadth and depth, ensure adequate coverage of the curriculum and include aspects of play and discovery. Add up all that is done in a day over and above face-to-face teaching and you can only wonder at how we manage to fit it all into the time we have. So is there an answer to this dilemma, is there a secret method to finding more time in our schedules to achieve all that we want to?

Avoiding Assessment Mistakes - The Learner's Way - 49 views

  •  
    Assessment is arguably the piece of the learning cycle we get most wrong. Whether looked at from the perspective of the learner, the teacher, the school administrator, the politician or the parent, assessment is misunderstood and poorly utilised as a tool for learning. The importance of changing this situation is only made more salient in light of the countless research studies from the likes of Jon Hattie & Dylan Wiliam that points to the power of effective assessment. So, what are the common mistakes and how might we avoid them?
