How Would Students Rethink Education? - 0 views

    * Better cafeteria food with real ingredients
    * No school busses - nearly every child mentioned the bullying of bus rides as one of the reasons they hated school
    * More choice in their assignments or projects
    * Replace grades with feedback and portfolios (like we did in our class)
    * Staggered start and end times so that the school would "feel smaller"
    * More alternative sports in addition to the traditional ones
    * Off-campus community service once a week
    * Job-shadowing for one month of the year
    * A monthly educational field trip
    * iPads, netbooks or laptops in classes - they even brought up some interesting ways to raise money for these devices
    * More freedom in terms of leaving to use the restroom, eating a snack or getting a drink of water
    * More electives - while most of them agreed that we need math, they suggested that maybe they could choose pre-geometry or pre-algebra or in reading, they could have reading classes geared toward certain topics
    * A school garden

Educational Technology - 0 views

      1. Modeling -- involves an expert's carrying out a task so that student can observe and build a conceptual model of the processes that are required to accomplish the task. For example, a teacher might model the reading process by reading aloud in one voice, while verbalizing her thought processes (summarize what she just read, what she thinks might happen next) in another voice.
      2. Coaching - consists of observing students while they carry out a task and offering hints, feedback, modeling, reminders, etc.
      3. Articulation - includes any method of getting students to articulate their knowledge, reasoning, or problem-solving processes.
      4. Reflection - enables students to compare their own problem-solving processes with those of an expert or another student.
      5. Exploration - involves pushing students into a mode of problem solving on their own. Forcing them to do exploration is critical, if they are to learn how to frame questions or problems that are interesting and that they can solve (Collins, Brown, Newman, 1989, 481-482).
