The Innovative Educator: Start the New Year with a new way to look at students who don't seem to care

The Innovative Educator: Start the New Year with a new way to look at students who don't seem to care | 21st Century Teaching & Learning Resources | Scoop.it

"My students don't know how to learn.  They don't know how to succeed.  And, it doesn't seem like they care to change any of that. " -Crystal Kirch, My biggest struggle this year.

"High school math teacher Crystal Kirch’s biggest struggle of 2012 was met with both cheers from those who could commiserate as well as jeers from those who were concerned that students were not the culprit, but rather the victims of a system that set them up for failure."


Via Beth Dichter
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

An interesting and topical article - which camp are you?.  I believe that children are passionate about the things THEY want to learn about and need to know why they are learning a particular topic. There are multiple ways a person learns; which one is the "right" way? Experiment; there are many different styles in one class - get to know each individual and speak on a 1:1 basis regularly.  Design your programme around each student (differentiate and individualise) and offer choice of resources etc.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 2, 2013 11:18 PM

What happens when we close ourselves off from hearing a different point of view? In this post Lisa Nielsen takes a look at reactions that occurred in response to the post by Crystal Kirch. She divides the responses into two sections: 

* Reactions from those frustrated by children who don't want to learn

* Reactions from those who provided the alternate perspective (that Kirch referred to as 'an "intense attack") in defense of children

By looking through the lenses of other this post is asking us to "think about and learn from that which may not be so comfortable and look at our students who don't seem to care in a new way."

Linda Buckmaster's insight:

Rather than trying to design, create, deliver or even “control” what happens  within class , teachers need for a focus on “building the new personal and social capabilities” that are are going to be required by the new “connected workers”, in order for them to work and learn effectively in the digitally connected workplace.

Excelente síntesis del diseño e implementación del trabajo y aprendizaje, formal ('packaging') e informal ('scaffolding'), personal e institucional/ organizacional, así como del desarrollo de las capacidades requeridas en el nuevo entorno global, en red y complejo de nuestra Sociedad en Red actual.

 

En particular, desde el CICEI, hemos planteado algo parecido sobre la base de Moodle, Elgg, Mahara y otras herramientas y diseños (ecosistema), como soporte ( 'packagiing' / 'scaffolding') del desarrollo del modelo y  Estrategía Suricata de 'Desarrollo personal y social integral (perfiles eAprendiz, eCiudadano, etc)', con el correspondiente modelo de eCompetencias.

As with literacy and numeracy which provides skills to ' participate in the work force, digital literacy has become an essential skill to be a confident, connected, and actively involved life long learner.'

Tal como proyectamos cada vez mas nuestra acciones diarias al  nuevo entorno digital (Internet), tal como incrementamos nuestras interacciones digitales con contenidos, personas y comunidades, es mas crítico trattar de definir y comprender el concepto de 'ciudadanía digital'.

¿Qué se entiende por ciudadanía digital?. Terry Heick propone como definición... ' la participación autodirigida que refleja la interdependencia consciente con el resto de miembros ( visibles y no visibles) de la comunidad digital ', para a continuación precisar un poquito mas: 'la calidad de hábitos, acciones y patrones de consumo que afectan al ecosistema de  contenidos  y comunidades digitales (en cuanto a sostenibilidad y mejora del mismo)."

 

Como soporte de dicha definición, se adjunta la presente infografía, en la que se muestra qué es la 'ciudadanía digital', en términos de sus hábitos y acciones.

Students love to play games, and games have the potential of teaching 21st century skills. This video discusses why games work and provides a look at a number of games and skills that they teach students. Key to this is the need for the teacher to help the students transfer the knowledge they are learning in the games to other areas. The video is short (under 5 minutes) and may provide you with some new information.

Linda Buckmaster's insight:

I believe it is the responsibility of every educator to share . . . resources, ideas, success, challenges, ahas, student insights, anything education related.

Sharing takes on many forms. Educators can talk to colleagues, write blogs, tweet, present at conferences – both virtually and face to face, talk to the media, and/or create a media product – video, podcast, photo essay – and post online.

Via Chuck Sherwood, Senior Associate, TeleDimensions, Inc
Linda Buckmaster's insight:

Blooms Taxonomy was developed in 1956 and was used to help classify the difficulty associated with questions asked during assessments.  The model was based around the idea that learning can be divided into three main areas:

  • Cognitive Domain
  • Attitude Domain
  • Skills Domain


Blooms and gaming together provide an individual learning type that has a series of learning levels to be considered when providing serious game platforms for learners.

Recomendable trabajo, en el que el autor reflxiona y aporta diferentes reports relativos a qué competencias medir, así como un muy reciente  "discussion paper on student assessment", de la Universidad de Alberta.
