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.

There's little better in a classroom than a great discussion.  That's why I really like the ideas here, especially under "Encourage Students to Expand their Answers".  A great discussion fosters learning and students never even know it happened.  I still remember some of the great discussions in past classes!

We've been talking about teaching students HOW to think for decades. That's why we've seen trends like Common Core and are seeing movements in STEM/STEAM as well as computational thinking. And because we've been talking about this for decades you'd think we'd begin to make progress in actually teaching students HOW to think. Let's get on that, shall we?

New advances in measuring social-emotional learning - The Hechinger Report

New advances in measuring social-emotional learning - The Hechinger Report | Education Matters | Scoop.it

"Core academic subjects have long been the top priority for districts preparing students for life after high school. Now districts are elevating social and emotional learning, as well, drawing from a large body of research showing that skills like grit and self-regulation are critical to life success. If they’re so valuable, the logic goes, schools should find concrete ways to teach them. And with teaching comes testing — not only to ensure students’ learning can be measured, but so that educators can determine how well the new efforts are working.


“As more programs are being taken up in schools and districts, there becomes this greater demand to assess them, to see if they’re working, to see if students are, in fact, learning the skills that are being taught,” said Lindsay Read, manager of research at the Collaborative for Academic, Social and Emotional Learning, or CASEL.

 

"While there are some assessments on the market, Read said there is a clear need for more direct assessment options, as distinct from student or teacher surveys of social and emotional skills. And when it comes to direct assessment, there’s a need for tests that can be administered quickly in classrooms and return results to teachers right away.

"Enter the Measuring SEL design challenge. CASEL is spearheading a collaborative effort to help the field coalesce around practical and appropriate design principles that developers can use to make future assessments. The first of three annual design challenges produced seven top designs, all at varying stages of development. Some haven’t been used in schools at all, while others are already being piloted."

11 Research-Based Classroom Management Strategies - @Edutopia | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Do unresolved behavior issues keep you awake at night thinking about what strategies might enhance responsible decision making and increase academic learning time? It’s natural to feel personally and professionally challenged—as I have, too many times to count.

The good news is that there are some research-based strategies called kernels that you can add to your classroom management toolkit.

What Are Kernels? In a 2008 paper published in Clinical Child and Family Psychology, Dennis Embry and Anthony Biglan describe kernels as “fundamental units of behavioral influence”—bite-size strategies that are validated by mountains of empirical evidence and teacher experience. (Barry Parsonson’s “Evidence-Based Classroom Behavior Management Strategies” offers another deep dive into the research.)

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.

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Our education system is in need of reform. Most students are not taught to be self-motivated lifelong learners, nor do they come out of the school system with the skills, mindsets, and values required to survive a world of accelerating change. Most students do not graduate to feeling inspired to contribute to human progress.

How Technology Can Expand Creativity and Innovation in Education

How Technology Can Expand Creativity and Innovation in Education | Education Matters | Scoop.it

 Creativity has always been a part of a successful classroom, however recent advances in technology are making it possible to increase the ability for students to use their creativity in academia. With the ability to take and store thousands of pictures and videos, and listen to music in the palms of our hands, our students have the ability to be more and more creative in their projects, assignments, as well as group and individual tasks.

Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 11:06 AM

I chose this resource because I agree 100% with the title. When I have used different technology and different programs with my students, they love it. Students in todays society get bored sitting in class with teachers talking to them. They want to be up and moving around working with technology to help them learn. I hope that this article will prove to our teachers that they must use technology for the benefit of their students. I have been in special education classrooms where autistic students were benefiting so much from programs on the iPad. Implementing these practices is so important to our students. 

Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 11:42 AM

I chose this resource because students can be so creative when using technology in their education. They aren't restricted, and can create assignments or projects that make sense to them. They aren't restricted, and don't have to do exactly what the teacher tells them. I hope that this article will come true for many schools around America. Too often, teachers are afraid to let students be creative with the use of technology, because it is outside of their comfort zone to let the students venture off and create their own learning opportunities.

There’s No Such Thing as Being Bad at Math: How Neuroscience Is Changing the Equation - EdSurge News

There’s No Such Thing as Being Bad at Math: How Neuroscience Is Changing the Equation - EdSurge News | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Imagine a parent telling a child, “I’m just not a reading person.” Sounds odd, doesn’t it? Now reread the same cartoon, substituting “math” for “reading.” Suddenly it doesn’t seem so absurd. But it should!

As a society ever more reliant on technology and STEM-based careers, we must shatter the myth that math skill is inborn and reinforce that it is the result of intention and practice.
It’s common to hear well educated adults declare themselves “not a math person,” sometimes proudly. Indeed, many people of all ages believe that mathematical ability is something you are either born with or not, rather than something to be mastered with focused effort. This belief is wrong. What’s more, it’s harmful to kids as they have their first experiences learning math; the attitude that “I can’t learn math” quickly becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. As a society ever more reliant on technology and STEM-based careers, we must shatter the myth that math skill is inborn and reinforce that it is the result of intention and practice. Reforming these perceptions needs to be a priority for teachers, parents, and creators of new learning tools that align to the way these digital-savvy students learn.
