5 Instructional Shifts to Promote Deep Learning - Getting Smart by Susan Oxnevad - DigL... - 14 views

  • The seamless integration of technology into the Common Core-aligned curriculum supports learning through active participation and increases opportunities for all students to have access to the tools and information they need for success.

    Oxnevad suggests, "Students can develop transferrable knowledge and skills as they engage in learning experiences that require them to construct knowledge" (¶1). She argues for "seamless integration of technology" that will enable "students students to have access to the tools and information they need for success" (¶2), and proposes five instructional strategies for teachers to use to achieve those ends, namely:

    1. Preparing "complex questions that require students to use higher level thinking skills" (Help students uncover knowledge, ¶2);
    2. Facilitating learning from engaging and online resources, rather than delivering content (Eliminate the front of the classroom);
    3. Creating opportunities for real world collaboration (Encourage collaboration);
    4. Exploiting classroom and online opportunities for "frequent [and] informal assessment to gauge the effectiveness of your instruction and make adjustments to maximize the learning experience for each student" (Informally assess students [and instructional practices]); and
    5. Preparing and publishing screencast tutorials for students to peruse whenever necessary, "...[i]Instead of spending valuable instructional time teaching the same tech skills over and over again to individual students" (Provide students with built in tech support).
