Tiffany Tucker's insight:

Wow this is just chalk-full of wonderful information. The study was based right here in our neck-of-the-woods. The author lists multiple ways that we can engage our students and enrich their learning experience by placing the learning in the students hands.  I particularly liked the idea of Digitally Rich Media. Almost every student now has access to technology on a regular basis. Why not allow more of it in the classroom? I think it is such a waste to not use this resource that right here in front of us.

Young Children Turning to Mobile Devices, Report Finds

Young Children Turning to Mobile Devices, Report Finds | Allow Learners to Take Charge of Their Learning | Scoop.it
Children ages birth to age 8 have "dramatically higher" access to mobile devices and use them far more often than children did just two years ago, a new national survey reports.
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

Using mobile devices in a math class is genius! I love it when I have access to the internet in my college classes. Why wouldn't my elementary student like it also. With google at our fingertips, why do we insist on limiting student access. In the digital era information is literally at our fingertips. I would love to be able to use this medium in my classroom. It gives total control to students!  #MathBote

Tiffany Tucker's insight:

Number 5 really hit home for me! It never occered to me to ask my learners for feedback. It really makes sense though. Who better to tell you if they understand a concept or not then your learners themselves. 

 

I also liked this article because it does mention opened ended problem solving. That has been a main focus all semester for us ED majors. I am still trying to perfect my ability to teach open ended scenarios. However, I think it is wonderful that I am seeing other bloggers/educators out there promoting this kind of learning experience. You don't see it that often.

Solving a Problem? Make a Plan!

Solving a Problem? Make a Plan! | Allow Learners to Take Charge of Their Learning | Scoop.it
When teachers help students make a problem solving plan at the beginning of the school year it will benefit everyone throughout the year. Watch as one Math class works together to make the problem solving plan.
Tiffany Tucker's insight:

When learners are given the necessary tools, they are more likely to succeed. This "Make A Plan" video describes how students are taught to problem solve on their own without having to be guided by the teacher.

Rebecca Siegel's curator insight, November 25, 2013 10:59 AM

I found this nice video form Tiffany and I think it explains a very important topic of making chidlren responsible for their learning.  By teaching in a way that creates student responsibility from day one, they will likely find things that are more relevant and beneficial throughout the year.  The more choice and control students have, the more interested they will be in their learning.
