We continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice' | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

why [has] technology, to date, had very little impact on improved learning outcomes? This could be because we continue to use technology to reinforce 19th century teaching practice to meet out-dated assessment models. Most of the world’s curriculum and assessment systems are based around fact recall rather than actually demonstrating that you have learned something and can deploy it within a problem-solving situation.

"Another Brick In The Wall" - Pink Flloyd

The Planetary Archives™ 's curator insight, November 17, 2013 3:12 PM

Our  education system is nothing more than child-care with some 

indoctrination thown in.


See/hear "The Wall" by Pink Floyd  (40+ years ago.)


Let the children play until they are old enough to decide what they are interested in learning. That's completely different than training them from Day 1 to "sit still, be quiet, and obey authority." Training a 5-year old to become a "worker" or 'Businessman"  is not education, but it may be child abuse.

Report Finds ‘Deeper Learning’ Model Improves Outcomes for All Students | Mind/Shift

Report Finds ‘Deeper Learning’ Model Improves Outcomes for All Students | Mind/Shift | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The conversation about what kids need to know and to be able to do by the end of high school has gradually shifted over the past several years to emphasize not just rigorous content goals, but also less tangible skills, such as creative thinking, problem-solving and collaboration.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation has been a big supporter of this work, defining deeper learning as a model that focuses on critical thinking, communication, collaboration, academic mindsets and learning how to learn, all through rigorous content."

The takeaway for this kind of durability? More than likely, the pencil metaphor persists because of the simultaneous overlap and juxtaposition of pencils, education, and technology. (It’s a neat party trick.) There was also a bit of thinking that went into this–Ferrules? And everyone loves familiar and iconic symbolism.

10 Good Habits to Develop an Innovative Mind | Hongkiat.com

10 Good Habits to Develop an Innovative Mind | Hongkiat.com | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

If I could sum it all up, creativity is really about being able to see associations when others couldn’t. Being innovative, on the other hand, is about coming up with something others have not thought of.


Whether is it inventing a new product or coming up with solutions to a problem, innovativeness requires creativity because one has to be capable of connecting abstract ideas and facts with existing scenarios before creating something unique and different.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

These habits can develop higher order thinking skills and creativity which can be modified and included into your teaching and learning environment.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 18, 7:03 PM

I think it is the same thing, but being curious and seeing the world through a prism of wonder is essential to innovating and creating. Small children do this and their world is a place of wonder, wonder filled, and wonderful.

As education continues the march toward a student-driven, project-oriented approach that values intelligent solutions to open-ended problems, it won’t be sufficient to focus on the wonderful discoveries and authentic work that result from an inquiry-based system.

4 Principles Of Student-Centered Learning

 

Like any phrase, “student-centered learning” is subjective and flexible–and only useful insofar as it ultimately supports the design of learning experiences for students.


For example, arguing for a “student-centered approach” to creating curriculum frameworks that center the authentic knowledge needs of each student makes sense, while creating a “student-centered” classroom that gives students little choice in content, voice in product, or a human necessity for creative expression does not. Student-centeredness uses an actual person as an audience, and designs learning experiences backwards from that point.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

A modified student center approach works best with Asian English language learners.
