Ditching letter grades for a 'window' into the classroom | CNN Education Blog | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Some schools trade letter grades and traditional report cards for descriptive feedback that shows how well students understand core concepts.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"We believe traditional report cards are highly ineffective in communicating to parents where their children are in learning".


It is starting to become a paradigm shift in global education toward competency-based learning and authentic assessment.

Edutopia blogger Terry Heick provides a quick tour of Costa and Kallick's 16 Habits of Mind, along with suggestions for integrating them as classroom best practices.

 

In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning | InformED

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning |  InformED | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."

Ready to Learn? The Key Is Listening With Intention | Mind/Shift | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
