Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, June 2, 2015 9:14 AM

A reading transformation can occur in your school much like it has in my classroom, replacing fear and dread with excitement and self-expression. Students will read if they choose the books. They will write with voice and clarity if they have the ability to express their thoughts. They can change from reluctant to inspired readers if it happens on their own terms. All you have to do is flip the experience, turning the practice of reading on its head by making them the creators of their own learning.

How The Activity Learning Theory Works

How The Activity Learning Theory Works | AdLit | Scoop.it
How The Activity Learning Theory Works 

Vygotsky’s earlier concept of mediation, which encompassed learning alongside others (Zone of Proximal Development) and through interaction with artifacts, was the basis for Engeström’s version of Activity Theory (known as Scandinavian Activity Theory). Engeström’s approach was to explain human thought processes not simply on the basis of the individual, but in the wider context of the individual’s interactions within the social world through artifacts, and specifically in situations where activities were being produced.

In Activity Theory people (actors) use external tools (e.g. hammer, computer, car) and internal tools (e.g. plans, cognitive maps) to achieve their goals. In the social world there are many artifacts, which are seen not only as objects, but also as things that are embedded within culture, with the result that every object has cultural and/or social significance.

Tools (which can limit or enable) can also be brought to bear on the mediation of social interaction, and they influence both the behavior of the actors (those who use the tools) and also the social structure within which the actors exist (the environment, tools, artifacts). For further reading, here is Engeström’s own overview of 3 Generations of Activity Theory development. The first figure shows Second Generation AT as it is usually presented in the literature.

Many times when we learn we use many tools. They may be our minds or they may be outside objects. This is how we put them together and use it for the better.

5 Strategies For Teaching Students To Use Metacognition | #LEARNing2LEARN 

5 Strategies For Teaching Students To Use Metacognition | #LEARNing2LEARN  | AdLit | Scoop.it
Metacognitive skills enable students to regulate their thinking and to become independent learners who can enhance their school and life experiences. Wherever the ambitions of our youth lead them, they will benefit from being able to solve problems creatively, think analytically, communicate effectively, and collaborate with others. As we conducted research for our latest book, we found that studies simultaneously indicate that metacognition is one of the most important skillsets students need, yet often is not taught.

When students are metacognitive, they can take a step back and observe their thinking. Sometimes this is called the reflective process. When using this approach, they might ask themselves questions like these: What is the problem to be solved? How should I solve the problem? How well am I doing? How well did I do? How can I do it better the next time? The metaphor we developed as a way to help educators teach metacognition to children and youth across grade levels is that of “driving your brain.”

Teaching students to drive their brains and become self-directed learners can be compared to driver’s education, in which students receive explicit instruction on how to guide their thinking, when to slow down, when it’s okay to speed up, and how to avoid wrong turns.

No this isn't just another word cloud tool like Wordle, there's much more to it than a word cloud generator.
Users just paste their text into Analyze My Writing and it will generate a large amount of information about your writing.
Analyze My Writing will...
   - give users a break-down of the readability of their writing on five indices;
   - include listings of the most common words and most common word pairs in their writing; and
   - provide a listing of how frequently they use punctuation and punctuation types.
Oh yes, and finally, a word cloud is included at the end of the analysis of their writing.
Analyze My Writing could be a great resource for learners to use when editing their assignments.

Beyond the readability of the their papers learners will receive important information about the words and phrases they have used repetitively in their writings.

Well worth looking at, and/or trying out.
