How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful | MindShift

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful | MindShift | 21st Century Education | Scoop.it
Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way. It’s time to not only address the flaws in PBL, but to reinvent it in a way that leads to deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing.

Think about the assessment within the Project based learning. What are the key elements in the authentic/inquiry-based  learning approach? Are the projects interrelated / themed toward learning objectives? Did students develop good quality portfolios and provide presentations to enhance the learning experience within the learning environment? Is the Rubrics focused on process or production or both?

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students

Dan Pink: How Teachers Can Sell Love of Learning to Students | 21st Century Education | Scoop.it
As education grows and changes educators have the opportunity to change the way they envision their roles and their classrooms.


Jobs in education, Pink said in a recent interview, are all about moving other people, changing their behavior, like getting kids to pay attention in class; getting teens to understand they need to look at their future and to therefore study harder.


At the center of all this persuasion is selling: educators are sellers of ideas.

The author of Drive talks about how to use these theories in education! 

Allan Shaw's curator insight, May 21, 2014 6:04 PM

'One of the big topics Pink tackles in his current book is the idea of moving from transactions to transcendence — to making something personal. That’s the best way to “sell” students on what they’re learning, Pink maintains. This has been a recurring theme in education: connecting what’s taught in classrooms to students’ personal lives. But, as evidenced by current school dynamics, that’s not the way the tide is moving.

“Most of our education is heavily, heavily, heavily standardized,” Pink said. ... The idea that you treat everybody the same way is foolish, and yet the headwinds in education are very much toward routines, right answer, standardization.”

Why is it moving this way? One of the reasons, Pink said, is the “appalling” absence of leadership on this issue. “One of the things that I see as an outsider is that so much of education policy seems designed for the convenience of adults rather than the education of children,” he said.... "Why do we have standardized testing? Because it’s unbelievably cheap. If you want to give real evaluations to kids, they have to be personalized, tailored to the kids, at the unit of one. Standardized testing: totally easy, totally cheap, and scales. Convenient for politicians and taxpayers.”

Think a lot of this is relevant to teaching language to adults too - supporting autonomy, etc.

New: Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

New: Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit for Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Education | Scoop.it

The reason why I am sharing this work here is because it provides a new way to think about Bloom's Taxonomy. In Bloom's Taxonomy Planning Kit, you will be offered with a variety of key words, action verbs, outcomes and questions  related to each of the thinking levels in the taxonomy. Here is the link of the original chart, try to zoom it in to make it legible.

Great resource.

Phil Chappell's comment, March 30, 2014 2:18 AM
Thanks Rob. You're correct.I have not come up with my own taxonomy, but I never intended to. Unfortunately we're no closer to empirical evidence then. I'm aware of the genesis of the work, and a group I'm in is puzzling over how it has been recontextualised to the teaching domain and become rather doctrinaire. I do hope, however, that it is a little more pedagogically valuable than Chomsky's work. It would be an interesting PhD study for someone so inclined - to chart a research agenda for Bloom's taxonomy as applied to education.
Karyn McGinley's curator insight, April 5, 2014 4:07 PM

Thanks for sharing this.  Anything new that has to do with Bloom's has got to be good!

12 Ways To Share Almost Any File With Your Students

 

As a 21st century teacher, you probably need to share stuff, and have stuff shared with. “Stuff” like pdfs, various word processing documents, video files, and other digital fare. The traditional way to do this has been email, but limits here–including speed, file size, and the relative clunkiness of sharing with large groups–make sharing files through email less than “best practice.”

Does Nature Make Us Happy?

Does Nature Make Us Happy? | 21st Century Education | Scoop.it
Connections with nature are linked to happiness and ecological sustainability.

 

Research: the results of their research suggest that “nature relatedness has a distinct happiness benefit” beyond the more generalized benefit of feeling connected to family, friends, and home.


Our connection to nature also correlated with most measures of human well-being, indicating it may play an extremely important role in maintaining positive mental health.

Nature is a place where we can see the patterns we need to see. It is also a reminder of our place in something much bigger than human invention and creation. Nature is a the ultimate creative space where creation is ongoing.
