Curiosity as the edge of knowledge phenomenon that drives learning - The Learner's Way - 1 views

    We are driven by curiosity. It is an innately human quality that has driven us to explore, ask questions, investigate, wonder why and search for a deeper understanding. In a very fundamental way curiosity is the driver of all self-directed learning. It is our desire to find out more, unlock new knowledge and answer our questions (big ones and little ones) that compels us to learn. Sir Ken Robinson famously and provocatively asked "Do Schools Kill Creativity?". The same question might be asked about curiosity.

E-Portfolios: Are We There Yet? -- Campus Technology - 2 views

  • The push toward e-portfolios is not just a willy-nilly "technology is causing a revolution and I don't know what we're doing" type of change. Our whole culture has gone digital, knowledge has changed entirely--yes, it's a big change, but we actually know the way to go. We have evidence in the practices gathered together that gives us a pathway forward.
    The cultural change that must accompany the move toward using e-portfolios as a method of assessing learning.

Metacognition - 0 views

  • cognitive strategies students use to achieve a particular goal, such as asking oneself a question about a textbook passage.
    • Dr. Jill Klefstad
      In the study students used the cognitive strategy of asking and formulating critical questions
  • Metacognition variously refers to the study of memory-monitoring and self-regulation, meta-reasoning, consciousness/awareness and auto-consciousness/self-awareness. In practice these capacities are used to regulate one's own cognition, to maximize one's potential to think, learn and to the evaluation of proper ethical/moral rules.
    • Dr. Jill Klefstad
      Which one of these definitions best fit my study? STudents became more consciously aware of their questioning. The creating of questions and responding to them helped students to maximize own potential to think
    This is one encyclopedia's version of the definition of metacognition or "the ability to think" Students who use their metacognitive skills usually are referred to as self-regulated learners who have control over their learning process.
