Learning dispositions and transferable competencies pedagogy, modelling and learning analytic sbs-rdc-lak12-oro.pdf

Karen M's insight:

"ABSTRACT


Theoretical and empirical evidence in the learning sciences
substantiates the view that deep engagement in learning is a
function of a complex combination of learners’ identities,
dispositions, values, attitudes and skills. When these are fragile,
learners struggle to achieve their potential in conventional
assessments, and critically, are not prepared for the novelty and
complexity of the challenges they will meet in the workplace, and
the many other spheres of life which require personal qualities
such as resilience, critical thinking and collaboration skills."

"What if we took 10% of what we’re currently doing and handed it over to our students, asking them to meet the standard or the outcome we’ve set for them in a way that they care about and that had a purpose beyond the classroom? What if we created opportunities for them to educate, entertain, inspire, or connect with people from all over the globe who might be sincerely influenced by the work they’re doing? And what if we asked them to assess their own work in ways that matter to them, ways that inform them what worked, what didn’t work, and how they might do it differently down the road?"
