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.

TeachThought: A Diagram Of Pedagogy in the 21st Century - | Education Matters | Scoop.it

We know that thinking in the 21st century seems different. What about teaching? Aside from the presence of dizzying technologies, added pressure for data-based improvements, and a persistent call for innovation, how is teaching different in 2016 than it was in, say, 1984?

Here are a few ideas as a kind of quick overview, with general summaries for each. I’ve added “tags” for each domain so that we can begin to see how existing and emerging initiatives (e.g., personalized learning), trends (e.g., the flipped classroom), and buzz words (e.g., digital footprint) might fit into each.

Personalize Learning: Making the Shift to "Our" Classroom

Personalize Learning: Making the Shift to "Our" Classroom | Education Matters | Scoop.it

One of the most difficult parts of our jobs as educators is to create a learning environment where our learners are engaged and meet content and curriculum goals. From my experience, the single most important challenge that needs to be addressed to earn engagement in our classrooms is to develop a culture of learner autonomy--allowing and encouraging learners to take control of their own learning. There are many barriers that we, as educators, must work to clear in order to create a strong culture that allows our learners to feel comfortable with working toward a common goal in the way that works best for them.

Helen Teague's curator insight, May 22, 10:26 AM
Kathleen McClaskey's insight: Brian shares how he transformed his classroom to a learner-centered environment and what happened in the process with his learners. Here is a glimpse of his journey: "As teachers, it is difficult to let go of control and to let our learners find the best ways for them to achieve content and curriculum goals. To be clear, our role in the classroom needs to change, and I think the trend in education is moving the correct direction--achieving and creating a learner-driven, personalized atmosphere is the key. Providing learners with the tools to succeed should be the goal, and we should focus on allowing them to use those tools in the way that works best individually. Instead of providing the blueprint for learners to achieve a goal, educators should be allowing and guiding them in designing, developing, and implementing their plan for accomplishing it. When this happens, drastic changes take place regarding engagement in our classrooms and ownership of learning appears, leading to a higher level of achievement."

Though the idea of learning styles has fallen from favor in education circles due to a lack of compelling research data that supports its effectiveness, there’s quite of bit of misunderstanding about it all. First, some clarity.

‘Learning styles’ imply that certain students learn more effectively certain ways–more kinesthetically than musically, for example. Pashler, McDaniel, Rohrer, and Bjork summarize learning styles for us a bit more in-depth below.

***They re-tell using their pictures. 
***Analyze the accuracy to improve the image words of the story (if possible) or the power of the images. 
Next time *** Divide the paper into number of topics 
*** Picture for each topic 
*** Re-tell & connect the pictures to create a branch from topic to topic 
*** Add smaller sub branches with new pictures if needed 
*** Re-tell 
Advanced*** Recreate the pictures from memory

50 reasons it's time for smartphones in every classroom

50 reasons it's time for smartphones in every classroom | Education Matters | Scoop.it

There are many ways to use a smartphone in the classroom, but it continues to be a touchy subject.

Privacy, equity, bandwidth, lesson design, classroom management, theft, bullying, and scores of other legitimate concerns continue to cloud education’s thinking about how to meaningfully integrate technology in the learning process.

To be clear–learning can happen in the absence of technology. Integrated poorly, technology can subdue, distract, stifle, and obscure the kind of personal interactions between learner, content, peer, and performance that lead to learning results.

Why implementation of Social learning is important for the current education system? | Education Matters | Scoop.it

"Education frequently takes place under the guidance of educators, but the trend of learners educating themselves is on a continuous upward movement. The reasons may include freedom to choose, no fear of questions being asked, learning at one's own pace and place, absorbing at one's own capacity and much more. The self-learning trend has been empowered by cutting edge educational technology innovation."

One thing this article seems to be saying is that the growth of technology in education makes more possible the old goal of emotional growth along with mental growth, especially in the learner taking more responsibility for their education. -Lon

Ashleigh Latter's curator insight, May 19, 8:33 AM
I have mixed opinions... On one hand I think Social Learning is positive, engaging, and informative while being a good platform for the next generation to access and absorb information, however I feel for a formative educational sense there are a lot of unknowns we can open the door to. For example, the article mentions that learners can go at their own pace - however most schools and institutes run by specific timelines and to allow slower learners to just be even slower may mean they don't even expose themselves to some of the content that may appear on an assessment piece and they end up far behind the rest of their cohort. If the majority of social media had positive views and encouragement for education with limited distractions, then it would be highly likely that we could see a generation of avid, elf-motivated learners - but does social media really encourage education and learning as much as we would like it to?
Helen Teague's curator insight, May 22, 10:49 AM
Interesting Points:
1.) "in 1971, an influential Austrian philosopher named Ivan Illich published a hugely influential book called, ' Deschooling Society ', in which he envisioned "learning webs" as a model for people to network the learning they needed."
2.) And a workable definition of asynchronous learning, "Asynchronous learning uses technologies such as email, blogs, wikis, and discussion boards, as well as web-supported textbooks, audio-video courses, and social networking using web 2.0 (Web 2.0 describes websites that emphasize user-generated content, usability, and interoperability)."
3.) new media became an extension of the traditional media on the cyberspace, allowing to the public access information in a wide range of digital devices. In other words, it is a cultural virtualization of human reality as a result of the migration from physical to virtual space (mediated by the ICTs), ruled by codes, signs, and particular social relationships, inside and outside the classroom.
4.) "New technologies also help to “connect” people from different cultures outside the virtual space, which was unthinkable fifty years ago."
5.) "The National School Boards Association found that 96% of students with online access have used social networking technologies, and more than 50% talk online about schoolwork."

30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers

30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers | Education Matters | Scoop.it
If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, “It was all Mr. Jones. He just never gave up on me.”

What students take away from a successful education usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subject. It’s difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is:

Are teachers reaching their students? Here are 25 things successful educators do differently.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 5, 5:16 PM
Evolving from the days of the printing press, mass dissemination of information was, until the mid 20th Century primarily achieved using text. Whereas video, sound and movies, and images emerged as powerful social messages, within the classroom context the almost-singular focus on text as a means to communicate continued. And the means to create and disseminate these messages were retained in the hands of the knowledgeable creators.
With the advent of the web and its own evolution, we are no longer reliant on print media. We only have to consider the ongoing demise of print media companies, newspapers, journals and magazines to understand the overwhelming social movement to multimodal communication on the web. And at the spearhead of the movement is the capacity of the ordinary citizen to create the same resources as have always been created by the experts.
If we do not embrace this movement in formal education we are at risk of widening the divide between the visual learning that is more common in informal education, and what occurs in the classroom.
But beyond this even is the power of visual thinking, the use of graphic organisers to support and transform thinking. This resource demonstrates some of he common, and some of the less common.

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners | Education Matters | Scoop.it
When students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning, they can participate in a dialogue with the teacher that allows them to work together to determine the actual level of mastery. No longer working in isolation, the teacher can now adequately discuss depth of learning, thereby helping students to communicate particular knowledge that is too often absent from their final products. After students provide the teacher with thorough information about their process, the teacher is in a better position to assess student learning.

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.
