    After reading the article from Turkish authors I felt the need to look their affiliation. An it was not Faculty of "İlahiyat" but it was seriously Faculty of Education.
  •  
    Dincer, I had enough patience to glance through the article. I don't think these arguments have any scientific basis!!
  •  
    Agreed! But I posted this for us to see and be aware of some people in Turkish Education. Thanks for your time and comment.
  •  
    For the first time I see that a scientific theory is tried to be challenged by a divine source rather than a scientific source. In my opinion, scientific debates should rely on scientific data and reasoning. Since divine sources describe an eternal truth, such sources make scientific debates and progress meaningless. In that sense, I think that this article's applicability and validity is open to discussion. Thank you Dinçer, it was one of the most interesting articles that I have run across so far.

Not Every Child Is Secretly a Genius - The Chronicle Review - The Chronicle of Higher E... - 5 views

  •  
    Here is another critique on MI. Interesting insights are presented here. 
  •  
    The author contrasts the MI intelligence with single intelligence and says that single intelligence is not educable, rather it is an innate capacity. As an educator, this criticism for MI is useful for me only because I remember to be critical to the theory and begin to search for weakness of it. Otherwise the authors view of single intelligence (non-educable and innate) shows me, as an educator, no direction about my teaching. So I find the Gardner's view (though it may not be a theory) more compelling than the authors view even if I agree that there are problems with Gardner's word choices. Rather than "multiple intelligence theory" he could use "practices of multiple abilities".

Don McMillan: Life After Death by PowerPoint - 5 views

  •  
    A video that I laughed at and agreed at the same time. Don McMilan tells "not to do"s while preparing power point slides with his sense of humour.
  •  
    Erdem, I watched this before, a clear demonstration of why people die in ppt presentations :) I am planning to implement different formats second semester in my class like Pethca Kutcha or Ignite. Will see if that will help to keep the presentations engaging.
  •  
    I also liked the attitude of the man. He is an effective presenter for presentation mistakes :)

    Teaching is not always lectures, papers or even presentations. A good example just after our constructivist session.

My own constructivist lesson plan - 1 views

  •  
    This is a lesson plan I prepared during my last year of college while I was taking school experience course and attending a public school as an intern. My proffessor Jale Çakıroğlu also liked this lesson plan very much and published it in her book named "Bilimin Doğası ve Öğretimi". Moreover, I also implemented it this semester with preservice teachers at METU. I took activity from http://www.indiana.edu/~ensiweb/lessons/gr.fs.fd.html and adapted it into Turkish. I also made some changes to make it more appropriate for 6th graders. In this activity, students are active all the time. The teacher only provides them the required materials and answer their quesions to guide them. The students work in small groups to learn the nature of science aspects with an acitivity where they act as they are scientists. The evaluation is process based not product based and this is clearly explained to the students. Since I prepared this lesson plan, actually implemented it and saw that it worked perfectly I would not change anything, but I always welcome your suggestions. :))

    Gamze, thanks for sharing the lesson plan. This is an exemplary lesson plan and let's talk about it in class.

Constructivism with Second Life Island Project - 1 views

  •  
    Here is my constructivist environment example. In the past, I installed the second life software considering that it was a game. I roamed and roamed in worlds that already were created, chatted with people in another countries with my avatar. Then I thought that it was boring. It was just like sitting on Sunshine and talking with friends. Why I had to do this via my computer? This video shows us how Second Life Worlds can be used to create constructivist learning environments. In the video, a Second Life World that was prepared by a group of people called TELLS TEAM is presented. In this world, you can attend lectures, have group meetings for discussion, work on simulations and role plays whereever you are. All participants including the teacher has an avatar and walking, sitting, chatting as if they were in the same room. In this project, learners are active participants. They roam, talk, immediately can fly to role playing sessions and etc. Teacher is only responsible to present initial knowledge. I could not find how they evaluate the learners. However, it is up to you. This environment is just a tool. You can arrange your role plays, your simulations, and also your assesment. Also they have some guides to use the environment effectively on this web site: https://sites.google.com/site/secondlifeuwnshss/Home

İki Dil Bir Bavul - FILM/DOCUMENTARY - 0 views

  •  
    This is another film about education. In this Turkish film, a western teacher goes to an eastern (kurdish) village to teach 1,2,3,4,5th grades together. It will surely provoke you to think about education in Turkey as well as daily lives of eastern people.

    I also watched the movie couple times. Very touching and forces us to think about the current situation that teachers face in Eastern part of Turkey. Thanks for sharing.

The Chorus (2004) - FILM - 0 views

  •  
    Dear friends, I strongly recommend you to watch this film. It is about a school (like hababam sınıfı). You will see different approaches against students. Examples of radical behaviorism and in part constructivism can be found. It will be enjoying to watch and contrast these two approaches. Besides educational aspects, this film is so touching. Please, prepare your handkerchiefs :) Original language: French Subtitle: English Link to watch: http://filenuke.com/ulgl9j1ux08p (click to "free" option)

    The link to the pool that has been prepared for technology based educational materials for FATİH project. In this pool, teachers and students can send several educational materials that they created or they were using in classroom environment. They aim to extend the content with contributions of people who are actively in education in Turkey. However, it is obvious that the project needs professional e-content materials. Videos, pdf's are ok but multimedia based tools are needed.

    Erdem thank you for sharing this website, I haven't heard about this before. While I was teaching to elementary level children I used fenokulu.net a lot as a turkish source. Now I think I can also make use of this one in the future. I also liked the fact that the website contains the pdf formats of "Bilim ve Çocuk". Very rich website indeed :)
  •  
    Erdem, I wonder if there is any section on the website that include resources/guidelines for teachers. E.g. how to integrate those simulations in the classrooms.
  •  
    Canan, I hope it will help, thank you, Hocam, there are just materials in the pool. I downloaded 10th grade math teacher guidelines released by Ministry of Education and started to read some sections. I saw that they offer recommendations like "using a dynamic math software, students do...". However, I don't know if they will handle the learning and usage of such software in in-service trainings. I wish I could bring more information about the system but they have not answered my CV and my sample work yet,

    President of Institute of Humane Education give a talk. Web page of the institute: http://www.humaneeducation.org/ From their web site: Humane education includes 4 elements: Providing accurate information (so we have the knowledge to face challenges); Fostering the 3C's: curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking (so we have the tools to meet challenges); Instilling the 3R's: reverence, respect, and responsibility (so we have the motivation to confront challenges); Offering positive choices and tools for problem solving (so we will be able to solve challenges).

    I found this website while looking at Dr. Ana Paula Correia's several work. The website includes lots of technologies that can be used for educational purposes. It looks like an inventory that you can use for enriching your education with technology. One suggestion is that explanation for each technology should be increased, and the website might have several links for tutorials and etc.
  •  
    Erdem, Thanks for sharing. We are going to do a similar website (wiki) in the class that I will be teaching next semester, with your suggestions taken into considerations of course.

Bad Examples of Behaviorism - 0 views

  • I once visited a Spanish classroom in a High School where I observed one of the most ineffective uses of a “Token Economy” that I had ever seen. In this case, students were so concerned with getting their “Pesos” that they lost all interest in the topic (which was suppsedly why they were getting them in the first place). The teacher himself spent large portions of class time debating with the students over whether or not they deserved “Pesos”.

    A text that I found while searching for something else. It was fun to read it.
