Today, computer involment in classroom is immence. We have e-learning lesson plans, enhahced with WEB.2 tools for immediate reaction. I know I have created a rich learning event when all my students are engaged in arguing about the best approach to the assignment. When we use questions and problems that allow for multiple strategies to reach a successful outcome, then we can speak that we gave students the opportunity to make choices and then compare their approaches. This strategy challenges them to operate at a higher level of thinking than when they can share only the "correct" answer. And this is only possible in class.

A new report from the Center for Public Education expresses what local school districts already know, that "the image of a principal as everything from an ineffective, out-of-touch authoritarian...(has changed) to a hard-charging leader capable of single-handedly turning around a low-performing school."

Hi students (and visitors). If you are having trouble with your profile photo changing every time that you post a new scoop, you can fix it by following these directions that a representative from Scoop.it sent me:
Indeed there's a setting to avoid that. Tell your students that on their Curate page, click on Manage>Customizations>untick "Last Post Image" box and click on Save.

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | 21st century education | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Моя практика показывает, что такой путь - верный!

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, January 10, 2014 3:56 AM

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?

 

Putting 'creating' first is the logical manifestation of action-oriented teaching.

Miguel Angel Perez Alvarez's curator insight, January 10, 2014 11:47 AM

Suena provocador comenzar por la creación y la creatividad en lugar de comenzar con la memorización de información.

Personalizing learning for all learners means understanding the different stages of personalized learning environments (PLE). Stage One is teacher-centered with learner voice and choice. Stage Two is when teachers co-design learning with the learners. Stage Three is when learners design and drive their own learning.

Inevitable is probably a better term. As textbooks go digital, more testing is conducted on-line and mobile applications democratize education tools, education start-ups are on the rise.
