Confronting the fear and challenge of a new curriculum - The Learner's Way - 1 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 - 1 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 - 0 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.

      I've used this program for over 5 years. I think overall the program is a great way to give students an option to recover credits they've missed thoughout their high schoool career. I also think its a great option for students to free up their schedules for AP classes. However, I do feel that it lacks the ability to collaborate as a "community". Email is really the only option for collaboration.

    EdOptions is the online curriculum I use for my high school students. I currently serve 35 students within the program!

Educational Leadership:Reshaping High Schools:Put Understanding First - 4 views

  • The mission of high school is not to cover content, but rather to help learners become thoughtful about, and productive with, content. It's not to help students get good at school, but rather to prepare them for the world beyond school—to enable them to apply what they have learned to issues and problems they will face in the future.

      The Purpose of Schooling - a succinct reminder of why we do this
  • Learning for understanding requires that curriculum and instruction address three different but interrelated academic goals: helping students (1) acquire important information and skills, (2) make meaning of that content, and (3) effectively transfer their learning to new situations both within school and beyond it.
  • learning for understanding.

  • they will be able to make meaning of facts and address such questions when they naturally arise in their lives.
  • Unfortunately, the common methods of teaching and testing in high schools focus on acquisition at the expense of meaning and transfer.
  • Test results such as these reveal not a failure of coverage but a failure of transfer.
  • Out-of-context learning of skills is arguably one of the greatest weaknesses of the secondary curriculum—the natural outgrowth of marching through the textbook instead of teaching with meaning and transfer in mind.
  • Direct instruction.
  • Facilitation.
  • Coaching.
  • teachers provide opportunities for students to transfer learning in increasingly complex situations.
  • seek to help learners make meaning and understand important ideas and processes.
  • the teacher's primary goal is to help learners acquire basic information and skills through explicit instruction and modeling.
  • Research in cognitive psychology (Bransford, Brown, & Cocking, 2001) challenges the notion that students must learn all the important facts and basic skills before they can address the key concepts of a subject or apply the skills in more complex and authentic ways.
  • Begin with a hook problem.
  • Introduce essential questions.
  • Preview the culminating performance task.
  • Provide direct instruction
  • Provide practice on the basics.
  • Provide opportunities for further discussion.
  • Provide an application task.
  • Lead a whole-class discussion.
  • Provide a small-group application.
  • Revisit the original unit hook problem.
  • Assign the final performance task.
  • Give students opportunities to reflect on the unit's essential questions
  • The textbook should serve as a resource, but not as the syllabus.
  • In high schools today, acquisition of content for its own sake dominates teachers' and students' experience—and therefore, schooling fails to achieve its purpose for a sizable proportion of learners. The approach proposed here suggests that to reform the high school curriculum in a meaningful way, we must challenge the common practice of teaching knowledge and skill for acquisition first and then teaching for meaning and transfer later. Rather, we must recognize that the purposeful and effective use of content is the ever-present goal, and we must design all instruction with that goal in mind.
