Teachers need to drive the research agenda

Teachers need to drive the research agenda | Action research schools | Scoop.it
If teachers want politicians to base policy on evidence, they need to accept that randomised trials are the way to show what works, argues Ben Goldacre
Jacq's insight:

Any health minister who tried to force doctors to use a treatment that doesn't work would be laughed out of town. If teachers really want to force all education ministers to follow the evidence, there is one thing they can do today: work towards making evidence-based practice the everyday, unarguable routine – starting now.

Students as learning partners (SaLP)

To me, one of the most challenging and revolutionary aspects of student voice has been students as learning partners (SaLP).
Jacq's insight:

I did SaLP some time ago - it really works well if students are well coached in how to make effective constructive feedback. Its challenging for the teacher involved but with the right support a bit of a risk and great rewards

How To Properly Integrate Education Technology

How To Properly Integrate Education Technology | Action research schools | Scoop.it

Rogers’ Diffusion of Innovation theory is the basis for several different models of organizational change, and it is the theory that is taught in most instructional technology programs at the Masters or Doctorate level. Organizations will not change until the people within them are ready to change, and those people have differing attitudes towards change. In a one-to-one program, often the resistance isn’t towards using technology but instead it’s resistance towards change itself.

Moving to a focus on child based learning rather that teacher based learning will make the children more enthusiastic. Once they complete a task they get the satisfaction of diong it for themselves.

Sugata Mitra: We Need Schools … Not Factories

From Plato to Aurobindo, from Vygotsky to Montessori, centuries of educational thinking have vigorously debated a central pedagogical question: How do we spark creativity, curiosity, and wonder in children? But those who philosophized pre-Google were prevented from wondering just how the Internet might influence the contemporary answer to this age-old question.

Today, we can and must; a generation that has not known a world without vast global and online connectivity demands it of us. Read the full essay  »
