The Inside-Out School: A 21st Century Learning Model

The Inside-Out School: A 21st Century Learning Model | Education Matters | Scoop.it

The goal of the model is simple enough–not pure academic proficiency, but instead authentic self-knowledge, diverse local and global interdependence, adaptive critical thinking, and adaptive media literacy.

By design this model emphasizes the role of play, diverse digital and physical media, and a designed interdependence between communities and schools.

Change can be the foundation of competitive advantage but, to be effective, a change management programme must identify areas of potential conflict, address the needs of everyone in the organisation and, crucially, bridge the gap between the aspirations of executives, technical project teams and the people affected by the change.

Few organisations do this well. But there are exceptions, such as these outstanding case studies of change.

5 Ways Teachers Can Beat Bullying in the Classroom — Changemaker Education — Medium

5 Ways Teachers Can Beat Bullying in the Classroom - Changemaker Education - Medium
A student’s ability to feel safe and confident are prerequisites to a student’s ability to learn. The lesson might be creative, engaging and fun — but if a child is being bullied at school, it might not even register. A 2011 study commissioned by the National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice Statistics found that 28% of American students in grade 6–12 experienced bullying, making them more likely to experience mental health problems and a plummeting GPA. Bullying, however, doesn’t just hurt the bullied. Bullied children, bullies themselves and bystanders are all more likely to skip school and wind up with emotional or substance abuse problems that could follow them into adulthood.

To help ensure a healthy learning environment for all students, teachers need to combat bullying in their classrooms and promote empathy — the ability to see the world from someone else’s perspective. Here are some approaches recommended by The BULLY Project, a campaign inspired by the award-winning film BULLY:

What's Our Best Taxonomy? Bloom's or SOLO?

What's Our Best Taxonomy? Bloom's or SOLO? | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Assessment is the new dirty word in education but with the right taxonomy, it can help change the way students learn

 

Going SOLO

A much less known taxonomy of assessing student learning is SOLO, which was created by John Biggs and Kevin Collis in 1982. According to Biggs, "SOLO, which stands for the Structure of the Observed Learning Outcome, is a means of classifying learning outcomes in terms of their complexity, enabling us to assess students' work in terms of its quality not of how many bits of this and of that they got right."

According to Biggs and Collis (1982), there are five stages of "ascending structural complexity." Those five stages are:

Prestructural - incompetence (they miss the point). Unistructural - one relevant aspectMultistructural - several relevant and independent aspectsRelational - integrated into a structureExtended Abstract - generalized to new domain

8 Pathways to Every Student's Success - Edutopia

8 Pathways to Every Student's Success - Edutopia | Education Matters | Scoop.it
The world has changed dramatically since the early 1900s when Montessori made her mark in education. Yet the same goal remains: scaffolding children toward self-sufficiency. How does this occur today, particularly when test results often seem more important than the development of a child ready to tackle career-life challenges?

In a nutshell, it happens when we understand how children and teens successfully mature to adulthood and how we impact their growth in key developmental areas. Based on decades of research in child and adolescent development, neuroscience, education, and psychology, we know that relationships with teachers, parents, and other supportive adults determine how school-age children acquire their personal guidance systems, full of interconnected abilities and pathways to success. When we envision those abilities as an internal compass, it's easy to see how education and development go hand in hand -- how children navigate successfully through school and life.

I created The Compass Advantage™ model as a visual, research-based, engaging way for families, schools, and communities to apply the principles of positive youth development. A framework for understanding why kids need these interconnected abilities and how they're nurtured in different contexts, it's also a call to act on behalf of children who deserve to live full, meaningful lives beyond external measures of success.
