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.

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

For a better look, here is a diagram provided (with permission) by John Biggs

The 'granny cloud': the network of volunteers helping poorer children learn

The 'granny cloud': the network of volunteers helping poorer children learn | Education Matters | Scoop.it
It’s fashionable to say the education system is broken. It’s not broken at all. The Victorian system, which is the model of education used practically everywhere in the world, does exactly what it was designed to do. Which is to have an elite class who will run the show, assisted by an army of clerks for whom a curriculum was designed and who were mass-produced to do their jobs.
