Are You Ready to Join the Slow Education Movement? - 0 views

  •  
    "Personalized learning requires teachers to become co-learners and release their iron grip on the learning process. It requires districts to trust principals, principals to trust teachers, and teachers to trust students. It requires a great deal of conversation about what real learning is and why it matters.

    engaged-students2This student-driven approach to learning allows kids to explore what matters to them, to build things that don't work and to figure out why. It requires them to form opinions and justify them based on solid evidence. And it requires adults who care and can speak carefully and honestly into the lives of kids.

    All learning should be formative. "

The Padagogy Wheel v2.0 - 1 views

  •  
    Blooms verbs combined with activities, combined with apps. In addition, there are core attributes and skills as well as an outer layer encouraging thoughtful examination of how tech tools should do more than substitute for non-tech tools. Great resource! (Note, this is aimed at post-secondary educators, but is easily adaptable K-12)

    The 4th of July: a great time to think about independence. No, not yours or mine; the students' independence. What curricular plan do you have for giving students increasing intellectual autonomy next year?

    In my previous post on transfer, I discussed what it is and isn't. Here, I draw from the research and highlight the key teacher 'take-aways' in terms of what the research suggests for practice. Most of the quotes come from Chapter 3 in How People Learn. Other sources are referenced at the end."

Hard Fun - 0 views

  •  
    "Once I was alerted to the concept of "hard fun" I began listening for it and heard it over and over. It is expressed in many different ways, all of which all boil down to the conclusion that everyone likes hard challenging things to do. But they have to be the right things matched to the individual and to the culture of the times. These rapidly changing times challenge educators to find areas of work that are hard in the right way: they must connect with the kids and also with the areas of knowledge, skills and (don't let us forget) ethic adults will need for the future world.

Education Week: Are We Creating a Generation of Observers? - 0 views

  •  
    "My concern, mind you, is not with the passive viewers, but with the pseudo-participants-those who may equate appreciating and recalling the accomplishments of others with doing something meaningful themselves. I worry that, in our classrooms, we have become focused on celebrating the lives of others, at the expense of the act of creation."

27 Ways To Publish Student Thinking - 0 views

  •  
    "Publishing student thinking can be among the most powerful ways to improve learning.

    There are a variety of reasons for this, but the biggest reason is that the "threat" of publishing moves the lodestone from the classroom to the "real world." This, of course, changes everything."

Once you go flat you never go back SmartBlogs - 0 views

  • Information
  • Teachers should help students learn how to build a PLN using the devices they own to connect beyond the textbook to the people, communities, and current events happening around their topics of study.
  • When my students are working on their personal passion projects, one of the first things I have them identify are the hashtags and active communities conversing about their topics. It is harder than it sounds.
  • ...8 more annotations...
  • Location
  • I believe kids need both local, regional, and global connections to be well-rounded learners.
  • Generation
  • Communication
  • Technopersonal skills can be as important as interpersonal face-to-face skills as students learn the nuances of online synchronous and asynchronous communications.
  • Connecting with Yourself (Time)
  • Intrapersonal skills are an essential part of self esteem as is the self-talk that helps students problem solve and stay motivated in the midst of struggle.
  • I tell my students I am mining for gold – and the mine is in each of them. We’ll find the gold, but it won’t look like it. We’ll work together to polish and enhance their innate talents and abilities so that when I’m done with their time with me that they will come out shining. This requires personalizing learning and a constant search for the authentic talents of each child.
