Michel Santiago del Pino's curator insight, August 13, 7:41 AM

Poder expresar la opinión y la elección propia es un Derecho negado históricamente a los menores y a todos los colectivos en desigualdad. La capacidad de hacer valer la opinión propia ya ha sido recogida en los Derechos del Niño y ratificada, en el caso español en 2011. La consideración de los menores estudiantes como coparticipes en la construcción de la sociedad ha de empezar en la escuela. Si se comprende en todo su alcance, la Alfabetización Mediática e Informacional aporta las herramientas para que la participación a través de la creación se haga sobre la base de la reflexión crítica, y la toma de decisión aquilatada. Ya sea de forma autónoma o la mucho más enriquecedora deliberación y creación cooperativa. Se sabe como se debe hacer, ahora lo importante es que se entienda que quererlo hacer es el mejor de los caminos.

David Allen Wizardgold's curator insight, August 14, 3:07 AM
It is a shame that many teachers are afraid of technology and won't allow it in the classroom. They see it as a challenge to their control of the students and subject matter within the classroom. To a certain extent it is reasonable because the technology can be used for things other than learning in the classroom. The teachers have a responsibility to get as many of the students to have learned the curriculum for the day and it can't be done if the students are stuck in Facebook.The next thing will be to change the examination system to support the use of new technology rather than requiring students hit the paper with those old-fashioned pens.I'd like to think that there is a way technology can be used as it should be within the classroom. If the students are allowed to make full use of 21st-century technology then maybe the teachers will be able to teach for the next century instead of being stuck in the last one.

How To Add Rigor To Anything - TeachThought

How To Add Rigor To Anything - TeachThought | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it
Rigor is a fundamental piece of any learning experience.

It is also among the most troublesome due to its subjectivity. What does it mean? What are its characteristics? Rigorous for whom? And more importantly, how can you use to promote understanding?

Barbara Blackburn, author of “Rigor is not a 4-Letter Word,” shared 5 “myths” concerning rigor, and they are indicative of the common misconceptions: that difficult, dry, academic, sink-or-swim learning is inherently rigorous.

Ten Reflective Questions to Ask at the End of Class - Brilliant or Insane

Ten Reflective Questions to Ask at the End of Class - Brilliant or Insane | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it
How deep is your commitment to reflective practice?

Do you maintain a reflective journal? Do you blog? Do you capture and archive your reflections in a different space?

Do you consistently reserve a bit of time for your own reflective work? Do you help the learners you serve do the same?

I began creating dedicated time and space for reflection toward the end of my classroom teaching career, and the practice has followed me through my work at the WNY Young Writer’s Studio. I’ve found that it can take very little time and yet, the return on our investment has always been significant.

I feel that it is generally important to reflect on one self after taking a lesson, this ensures we are learning on the right track and doesn't "fall off" the topic. Reflection keep us calm and collected, so we can stand back straight up even after a failure to accomplish something. This gives us a never ending space to improve and beyond than just learning, but also to persevere, take responsibility in one's learning and also to excel in things we do.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 8, 9:28 PM

Here is a print-and-play games from the Institute of Play that you may find helpful in your classroom.

Socratic Smackdown helps students practice "argumentation around any topic or text." You may use it to help students become self-directed learners. There is a great video that quickly walks you though the process and you may download a pdf that provides Game Basics, Game Play, Student Resources and Teacher Resources. This game is geared to students from Grades 6 - 12.

Below are some of the rules of the game (found in the pdf).

* Create teams of four to six players and provide a topic, text or issue that will be discusses as well as a question set

* Share that discussion skill strategies are part of the game

* Set chairs in fishbowl pattern when ready to start

* Choose one student from each team to play

* Have 2 or more students as scorekeepers who will use Socratic Smackdown Scorecards

* Coaching cards will be used by students not keeping score, or by all students after the end of the match (if all are also scoring)

* Students "play" for 6 minutes and Scorecards are collected

Playing Socratic Smackdown with students will help them develop discussion and debate skills, a component of Common Core Speaking and Listening,  and a rubric is also provided.

It is difficult to maintain learner engagement in an online learning environment as compared to classroom training,. During classroom training, the trainer engages participants using anecdotes, stories, creating some scenarios or by sharing personal experiences. But, how do you engage learners in an online learning environment, where they are learning all by themselves?

This is where the instructional design plays a key role. Effective instructional design should be able to done the role of a class room trainer in a self-paced environment. As instructional designers, we need to keep learner’s engagement in mind when designing eLearning courses.

Many school administrators, teachers and parents want the education provided to children to be high quality, rigorous and connected to the world outside the classroom. Teachers are trying to provide these elements in various ways, but a group of schools calling themselves the “Deeper Learning Network” have codified some of what they believe are essential qualities of deep learning (check out how students lead parent teacher conferences in this model).

 

Some of these qualities include learning designated content, critical thinking, communication skills, collaborating effectively and connecting learning to real-world experiences.

Whiteboard animation videos are videos that draw themselves. They involve an animated use of images, shapes, characters, sounds and voice-overs to create a clip. This form of video production has been very popular recently and is widely used by some leading educational YouTube channels such as TED Ed and RSA Animate. Creating a whiteboard animation video is no longer a graphic designer's job. There are actually several web tools that allow you to easily put together an animated video with as simple tools as drag and drop. As a teacher, you can  use these animations to create and share tutorials,  presentations, step by tsp guides, and many more. Below are three  of my favourite tools I would recommend for you:
