Turning Education Upside Down

Turning Education Upside Down | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
“Flipped schools,” where students watch video lessons at home and do “homework” in class, are showing early promise in improving learning.

 

Three years ago, Clintondale High School, just north of Detroit, became a “flipped school” — one where students watch teachers’ lectures at home and do what we’d otherwise call “homework” in class.

 

Teachers record video lessons, which students watch on their smartphones, home computers or at lunch in the school’s tech lab. In class, they do projects, exercises or lab experiments in small groups while the teacher circulates.

 

Clintondale was the first school in the United States to flip completely — all of its classes are now taught this way.

 

Now flipped classrooms are popping up all over. Havana High School outside of Peoria, Ill., is flipping, too, after the school superintendent visited Clintondale. The principal of Clintondale says that some 200 school officials have visited.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

The results are still out on how the "Flipped Classroom" will be culturally accepted in Southeast Asia.

Salena Argar's curator insight, May 17, 6:31 AM
Seven steps to the perfect story is a great visual representation of how to build a story. This clearly explains the process of how students can construct their narrative and the types of characters they will use. I would definitely use this in my classroom to help students understand the process of creating a narrative.

Schools Must Bring Creativity to Blended Learning

Schools Must Bring Creativity to Blended Learning | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Too often, schools bring only tepid energy to the blending of traditional and online learning, Charles Mojkowski says.

 

We need to match the potential of new and emerging technology tools with bold new designs for learning and teaching and schools and schooling, designs that “listen” to what the technology is offering and exploit much more fully its existing and potential capabilities. And that would be a robust blend.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Chinese President Xi reaffirms education top priority in China | China Daily/USA | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Chinese President Xi Jinping expressed his nation's commitment to education in a message to a meeting marking the first anniversary of the United Nations' Global Education First Initiative (GEFI).

 

In a pre-recorded video, Xi, on behalf of the Chinese people, voiced his firm support to the GEFI, which was proposed by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

 

"Education is the foundation of national development in the long run. It is the fundamental way for mankind to pass on civilization and knowledge, bring up new generations and create a better life," Xi said.

 

"China will continue to respond positively to the UN initiative. With more than 260 million students and some 15 million teachers, China faces an arduous task in the development of education," Xi said.

The new version of the Padagogy Wheel tackles a major question that is lurking in the back of everyone’s mind. If it’s not … it should be. It’s about the problem of motivation in education. How do we motivate students, teachers, parents, and everyone else to get excited about learning? How do you stay motivated? What works and what doesn’t?”

Using Classroom Assessment Techniques: A Proactive Approach for Online Learning | Faculty Focus

Using Classroom Assessment Techniques: A Proactive Approach for Online Learning | Faculty Focus | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

There are two main forms of assessment often used within the online classroom. Both formative and summative assessments evaluate student learning and assist instructors in guiding instructional planning and delivery.


While the purpose of a summative assessment is to check for mastery following the instruction, formative assessment focuses on informing teachers in ways to improve student learning during lesson delivery (Gualden, 2010).


Each type of assessment has a specific place and role within education, both traditional and online.

What's In & Out: Trends In Learning Technology

What's In & Out: Trends In Learning Technology | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Education is an odd beast, full of change, yet stubbornly resistant to change.

Sometimes it’s difficult to get an honest picture of learning trends and educational churning because of where you’re looking. Newspaper and major news media gloss over all the details while covering the same tired tropes.

 

Blogs and social media seem to be closer to what’s actually happening in classrooms, but have a tendency to sensationalize that change. And talking to teachers themselves only yields what’s happening in one classroom, school, or district.

 

But there are some common trends that we can take a look at (in an inescapably subjective fashion) as 2014 approaches. Many of the words you hear are the same, but their trending Direction might not be.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Interesting perspective but may not be global in nature.

Creative leadership as a way to solve problems | SmartBlogs | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This leader is right. Creative people are problem-solvers who tackle problems differently than analytical thinkers.


Creative problem-solvers look outside the available information, the “why nots” and the barriers to progress that helped define the problem in the first place.


They find inspiration by assuming there is an opportunity that just hasn’t been discovered yet and intentionally seeking that opportunity...

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

I have been trained as a "Creative problem-solvers who look outside the available information, the “why nots” and the barriers to progress that helped define the problem in the first place."

 

You can get yourself in trouble as a leader if your group will not accept you in this type or role as creative problem solver. It all has to do with the culture and the communcation style or dynamics of that group.

An Intriguing Participation Policy | Faculty Focus

An Intriguing Participation Policy | Faculty Focus | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I was looking at participation policies in a collection of syllabi this week. I wouldn’t give most of them high marks—lots of vague descriptions that don’t functionally define participation and then prescribe instructor assessment at the end of course with little or no mention of criteria.


But I’ve voiced my concerns about participation policies previously, so I won’t do again here. Instead, what I would like to share with you is a policy that’s impressive in its specificity and in the intriguing idea it contains.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

I am impressed more with a rubrics that can be provided to the students prior to the start of the course. Then a review of that course rubrics to "train them". This will help with student learning outcomes and provide the deeper learning environment.

Take Google Task Management And Scheduling To A Whole New Level With GQueues

Take Google Task Management And Scheduling To A Whole New Level With GQueues | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Task management is about as exciting as getting a health exam. The truth is, task management is as important to your work health as a health exam is to your physical health, so it’s important to get it right early before you drown in all the chaos. A Google Task replacement called GQueuesmay be one of the best solutions around.

 

We’ve explored a steady stream of time and task management apps through the years. One good example is Bakari’s review of Wunderkit, or Azim’s review of Chaos Control. I’ve personally tried a number of those recommended here at MUO over time. I’ve also tried creating my own system by integrating Excel and Google Tasks, or using browser add-ons like Google Tasks Offline for Chrome.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I give presentations to educators at every level, all around the world. All of the teachers are earnestly trying to adapt their educational system to the twenty-first century.

 

During my talks, however, I typically look out at oceans of white hair. Never -- I can't even say rarely -- is a kid in sight or invited to the party.

 

It is a measure of the malaise of our educational system that these old folk -- smart and experienced as they may be -- think they can, by themselves and without the input of the people they're trying to teach, design the future of education.

How to Motivate Adult Learners » The Rapid eLearning Blog | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I was going to help my son build a computer game using Kodu. I like the app because it’s a simple way to introduce visual programming. I was prepared to sit down with him, watch some tutorials, and then practice. But he was already messing around with the application.

 

Impressed with what he had done I asked if he had already watched the tutorials. He told me he didn’t know what he was doing. He just started “clicking around” and was figuring it out.

 

Funny thing about the young ones, they have no problems jumping in and messing around. Adult learners aren’t always so willing to do that. It’s probably because we are so conditioned to avoid failure that it makes us guarded and reluctant to step out a bit.

 

Assuming you have to work with adult learners, what are some things to consider to keep them motivated and engage?

Learning with 'e's: Learners as producers

Learning with 'e's: Learners as producers | 21st Century Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

For the longest time teachers and lecturers have held the monopoly on the production of academic content. They create lesson plans, produce resources, devise marking schemes and search around for activities and games they can repurpose to use in teaching sessions.

 

Although the production of content has been the preserve of the teacher and the academic since the formalisation of education, increasingly, we also see learners creating their own content. They have the tools, they own the technology, and they have the confidence to use them, not only informally, but increasingly in formal learning contexts.

 

Many are prolific and proficient in producing blogs, podcasts, videos and photos for sharing on the web. They can do it all using the simple smartphone in their pocket. This user generated content trend is apparent not only in universities and colleges but also in the compulsory education sectors.
