Ten reasons to teach thinking

Ten reasons to teach thinking | Education Matters | Scoop.it
The teaching of thinking is a critical endeavour for teachers and one that brings enhanced learning opportunities for students. Unfortunately thinking is not something that we naturally do well and as a consequence it is a skill we need to learn. Understanding this is the first step towards establishing a culture of thinking in your classroom

Students have trouble formulating opinions and creating ideas; we must help them generate thoughts and problem solve by sharing frameworks for thinking.

Heutagogy Explained for Teachers (and Tools That Support It) | LEARNing To LEARN

Heutagogy Explained for Teachers (and Tools That Support It) | LEARNing To LEARN | Education Matters | Scoop.it
October 20, 2015
Heutagogy is a learning and teaching  approach that is primarily self-directed or self-determined. Unlike the traditional pedagogic paradigm where learning is administered in a controlled environment under the auspices of a ‘knowledge expert’ (teacher) and where learners agency is defined in the logic of conformity and passive adhesiveness to pre-defined instructional guidelines, a heutagogic pedagogy is more learner entered. It is bent on developing learners autonomy and enabling them to take control of their own learning. At its core is the individual empowerment through equipping learners with a variety of skills and competencies to help them with their self-formation.

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 10:02 AM

I chose this article because I have not sensed the endorsement of self-directed learning that I experienced, say 10 years ago. However, the author describes different tech tools that support the idea of self-directed learning. Certainly, social media and the availability of knowledge and resources that support it (animations, tutorials, videos) make self-directed learning a more realistic venture.

13 Ways Education Could Change In The Next 13 Years

13 Ways Education Could Change In The Next 13 Years | Education Matters | Scoop.it
We recently speculated on the what education might look like in the year 2028 (see the link above), when today’s kindergartners have finished K-12 and beginning their work in the world (or college). The focus of that piece was technology, and how it might impact the way students learn in the coming decades.

This piece is similar, but a bit more focused on the pros and the cons of learning trends, and the ultimate impact they might have on education, and society at large. Note that all of these pieces are necessarily speculative, presented to hopefully promote conversation, illuminate possibility, and help us to stop and think where this all might be headed.

From the conversations about their learning, the partnership between the teacher and learner evolves where they set learning goals, regularly monitor their own progress and modify and set new learning goals based on the learner profile. Within these new goals, skills and learning strategies are discussed, defined and planned between the teacher and learner.

4 Essential Rules Of 21st Century Learning

4 Essential Rules Of 21st Century Learning | Education Matters | Scoop.it
The term “21st century” has become an integral part of educational thinking and planning for the future. Educators and administrators are actively searching for ways to prepare students for the future, and the educational system has been evolving faster than ever before.

Various studies have shown us that rote memorization is not an effective learning strategy, and that teacher-centered classrooms may not be the most efficiently structured ones for student engagement.

However, despite learning about the skills that students will need to develop to become successful in the 21st century, as well as what beliefs about education may be worth hanging onto or throwing away, schools and teachers are left trying to figure out what their role needs to be in the education of their 21st century students.

60 Ways To Help Students Think For Themselves

60 Ways To Help Students Think For Themselves | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Motivating and engaging students is the goal of most teachers–priming them to receive instruction, or otherwise align themselves to a pre-set process you’ve sketched out that you hope will yield a learning goal you selected beforehand. But I’ve also been thinking recently of how learning actually happens–the causes of learning. Learning events, maybe. Eh.

So I came up with 60 (of millions) of these “learning events” (for lack of a better term)–circumstances in which students seem to learn effortlessly. They can learn when they are coerced–to start, to increase the pace, to finish, to revisit. But what kind of conditions or contexts promote effortless learning? Learning when they don’t even know it’s happening? When they’re (essentially) tricked into deep understanding?
