BBC Radio 4 - Four Thought, Series 2, Gerard Darby: Science and Creativity - 2 views

  •  
    "Creativity is just as vital in science and engineering as it is in art and drama, argues Gerard Darby.

    Yet the present education system is undermining young people's natural creativity, he says, and is in urgent need of reform. He highlights some novel approaches, and explains why this matters both for the individuals, and for our wider society and economy. "

5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn | MindShift - 0 views

  •  
    hHelping students learn how to learn: That's what most educators strive for, and that's the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills. Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn. Those observations are as important as the content they learn or the projects they create.

The Great Question Press - 3 views

  •  
    this is an old post, but I like how it looks at changing questioning style i order to get the most out of our students

    No more trivial pursuit.
    No more topical research.
    No more hunts for simple facts - deadly, tiresome and lacking in value, mind-numbing activities without import.

    This article offers something like a cider press - but one that easily produces intriguing questions from the mass of curriculum content that usually inspires mere collection or varieties of trivial pursuit.

Making Learning Visible - 1 views

  •  
    "Most of us are in groups all the time. But are these groups learning groups? When does a group become a learning group? Can a group construct its own way of learning? Can documenting children's learning lead to new ways of learning?
    These are some of the questions addressed in the research project, Making Learning Visible (MLV). MLV draws attention to the power of the group as a learning environment and documentation as a way to see and shape how and what children are learning. MLV is based on collaborative research conducted by Project Zero researchers with teachers from the Municipal Preschools of Reggio Emilia, Italy, and preschool through high school teachers and teacher educators in Massachusetts."

What really matters? « What Ed Said - 0 views

  • As a learning community, my school is further down the track in our understanding of inquiry learning than we were at this time last year. Teachers talk about how much they have changed. There is a greater awareness of what’s possible when teachers let go and learning is more student owned.
