Scaffolding for Deep Understanding

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding | 21st Century Learning- Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

That learning takes place in a social context is a significant issue. This is why collaboration or ‘cooperative learning’ has become so popular – but it has to be more than social collaboration. Cognitive collaboration needs to be encouraged. As students communicate their ideas, they learn to clarify, refine, and consolidate their thinking. Schoenfeld has said that, ‘Groups are not just a convenient way to accumulate the individual knowledge of their members. They give rise synergistically to insights and solutions that would not come about without them.’

Thanks for the podcast!
Tim Scholze's curator insight, December 11, 2012 8:47 PM

I think there is merit to what Ms. Ileanes says, however I still believe that a teacher needs to be a blogger.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, December 21, 2012 7:45 PM

If you are just beginning your connection with Scoop.it, or even if you've been using Scoop.it for awhile, you are sure to pick up a pointer or two from Ms. Ileane Smith's podcast. She's soooo enthusiastic and quite complete in her coverage. Great job. And she's correct about being able to establish yourself as an authority without having to write a blog.
