What's the purpose? « scmorgan - 8 views

    "...My students were not able to "take" or "compile" much of their work. Yes, they created a list of what I asked. Yes, they created a cute "container" in which to hold their work. But I don't believe their portfolio truly represents their thinking, creating, and publishing this year. And that's too bad."

Shutting Down the Machine « Ed Tech Journeys - 16 views

  • There is no tiptoeing around this thing. Those who truly desire a transformation of educational system will have to endure many of the same trials and tribulations as those who fought and fight for change in other domains. While educational change agents may not endure the physical pain that so many activists experience; it should come as no surprise that some will be intimidated, or refused tenure, or shunned by colleagues.
  • So, what will it take to transform teaching and learning? What will it take to shut down the pleasant hum of the machine that is so good at turning out 20th century students even though we’re entering the second decade of the 21st century? Leaders with Courage and Commitment!

Thing 4 - Edublogosphere Effect | LeadingtoLearn - 9 views

  •  
    Due to the ever changing nature of technology, educators must be lifelong learners to provide the most current methodology to captivate and educate their students. I think one of the reasons we become teachers is because we enjoy the fact that each day is different and we are willing to accept those challenges. That is why we can't become stale in our methods of facilitating learning in our classrooms.

  •  
    We make these changes not because we want to include technology but because we understand that there are new skills, new literacies kids need and we can't explore those literacies with students without harnessing the ingenuity technology affords us. (Also note Simpsons 3D metaphor)

B.I.A.T. - Bringing It All Together - 0 views

  • The end result of the facilitated math experience is that the student will have had his mastery needs met because he was able to fix a miscalculation, he was able to share his fix and feel safe about making mistakes and learning from them. This student is more likely to embed the concept into his mathematical schema.
  • FACT: Students do not need marks to be motivated. Most of the best work I have ever seen came from students who were not worried about evaluative handcuffs.
