Rebooting math class, one video at a time. Online lessons aid teachers, students in classrooms | Education Matters | Scoop.it

"No one was standing in front of an eighth-grade math class at St. Mary of the Hills School, but fractions were slowly appearing in colored chalk, as if written by the invisible hand of a ghost. The voice of an unseen narrator emanated from speakers on both sides of the smartboard, explaining the equation step by step. While students sat quietly in their seats, listening to this virtual instructor solve the math problem, their real-life math teacher, Marianne Ruggiero, walked around the classroom with her arms folded, peering down at them as they scribbled notes with pencils into spiral-bound notebooks and tapped the keyboards of laptop computers."

Why Students Forget—and What You Can Do About It

Why Students Forget—and What You Can Do About It | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Teachers have long known that rote memorization can lead to a superficial grasp of material that is quickly forgotten. But new research in the field of neuroscience is starting to shed light on the ways that brains are wired to forget—highlighting the importance of strategies to retain knowledge and make learning stick.

How to Push the Boundaries of School with Dynamic Learning | Shake Up Learning | #ModernLEARNing

How to Push the Boundaries of School with Dynamic Learning | Shake Up Learning | #ModernLEARNing | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Does your classroom offer one-and-done types of learning activities, or does the learning grow, inspire, and evolve throughout the year and beyond? With tools like G Suite for Education that are available 24/7, the learning doesn’t have to stop when the bell rings at the end of class, or when the worksheet is turned in, or even when the school year ends. The learning takes on a life of its own; it becomes dynamic.

 

This concept alone should change the way you think about learning in general and change the way you facilitate learning in the classroom.

Rubiel's curator insight, September 16, 10:04 PM
The author shares the idea about going beyond the mere fact of being learning only in the classroom. His thoughts on being more autonomous when implementing tools which provide the learners with the opportunity to practice at home leaves a space to consider the way we are making the education happen nowadays. Thereupon, I agree with the consideration about having learners dig deeper into their learning on their own terms with the tecnological devices found in this new era and let them dig deeper on things the are interested in the most.

David Alzate's curator insight, September 17, 6:18 PM
This article advices teachers to help their students see learning as an entire life process, and that with all the tools we have available today it does not have to be boring, limited or seen as a burden. Instead, teachers can help them power and further a mindset of proactivity and independence in learning. It means that the children, teenagers or adults in a class can come to understand ,with their teacher’s help, that learning does not always mean to have a board and a teacher in front of a classroom. This article notes that it is of high importance for teachers to constantly be updated in all the new tools that are available for education, and to learn how to use them beyond the common and old way. In this new, connected and more globalized world, learning does not have to stop necessarily when the school day or year ends, it can be at any time, and also interesting and exciting; the deal here is to have teachers and therefore students thinking out of the box, and seeing education notas a burden or a must, but an enjoyable process insofar as this mindset is well provided and spread.

The picture tells it all! In a world that is becoming a "more connected world" (irony accepted), it has become an accepted fact that education also has to evolve. Move over Chalk and Green Board, move away pen and paper, enter the I-Pad, smartphone and laptop for online tests. Also, you might use Facebook to post your home tasks, or you might use Socratic to create online polls and surveys.

"If you’re thinking of completing your own classroom remake project, good for you. I’ve been helping teachers redesign classroom spaces for the past several years and have seen this process work for projects of all sizes.

The tips below can be used for smaller scale remakes right way. If you want to do something bigger, you can start planning immediately and schedule some time over a holiday or long weekend. Either way, much of the prep work can be done now or incrementally over a few weeks as a lead-up to a larger remake project.

Whether you’re looking to reorganize one corner or redesign an entire room, here are eight tips that may help you throughout the process."

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Part of rethinking learning means rethinking the bits and pieces of the learning process–teaching strategies, writing pieces, etc.

Which is what makes the following chart from Kathleen Cushman’s Fires in the Mind compelling. Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments.

"Learning must be authentic and meaningful in order for the content to really be understood and usable. While there are several education models that promote this idea, it is a necessity in a well-planned Project Based Learning (PBL) Unit. While memorizing and reciting facts may actually give some positive results on a test, it demonstrates only the lowest levels of learning as represented at the bottom of Bloom’s Taxonomy. PBL provides students that authentic learning experience that allows for real world applications, purpose, student relevant, and an audience beyond their classroom walls. Read more about these four special indicators of an authentic learning experience. While a PBL project may not always have every indicator, it is important to keep these qualities in mind when designing a project

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - TeachThought PD

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - TeachThought PD | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Recently, I’ve been thinking of the universal truths in teaching. Students should be first. Don’t always start planning with a standard. Questions matter more than answers. Trust is a currency of a human classroom. 


So I thought I’d gather twelve of them to start with. The idea of “good teaching” is an idea we get at a variety of different ways, So then, here are some rules we might consider when making sense of this idea of what makes a teacher great.

Foster A Growth Mindset in Your Class Using These Strategies | #ModernEDU | Education Matters | Scoop.it

August , 2017
In her celebrated book ‘Mindset: The New Psychology of Success’, Stanford university psychologist Carol S. Dweck makes a strong case backed up with  scientific evidence for the power of mindset in shaping one’s success or failure in almost every facet of our life.Those with a fixed mindset mentality tend to be limited in their learning scope believing that their inner traits and abilities are biologically determined. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace change and tend to learn more from life experiences because for them concepts such as skills, abilities and competencies are not fixated  and can be developed through a process of error and trial.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on Marcus Guido’s post ’10 Ways Teachers Can Instill a Growth Mindset in Students’. Guido walks you through the different strategies you can use with your students to cultivate a growth mindset in your class and ultimately enhance students learning.  Read his post to learn more about each of the strategies featured here.

Diana Jaimes V.'s curator insight, September 2, 9:50 AM
First, this article led me to consider mindset shaping as a powerful tool for learning as any other aspect of life. It explains the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset that normally refers to people constantly learning from any experience. Since their capabilities are not fixed, these people are never closed to a learning experience and always use the trial and error learning. They proposed an infographic with several strategies to foster a growth mindset in our students some of the steps include the use of diverse teaching strategies, explanations of purposes of abstract thinking, teaching values, among others.
