5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn

5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn | Assistant Principal | Scoop.it
Jamie Nast/Flickr Helping students learn how to learn: That's what most educators strive for, and that's the goal of inquiry learning. 

 

That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills.

 

===> Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn. <===

 

Those observations are as important as the content they learn or the projects they create.

Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius | Video on TED.com

Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses -- and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person "being" a genius, all of us "have" a genius. It's a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.

How To Capture Ideas at Presentations and Events by Doing Visual Recording on the iPad

Robin Good: Rachel Smith explains in very simple words how you can use your iPad to capture and record visually the key ideas and concepts presented during a lecture, keynote, training class or presentation.

She provides a good round-up of four relevant tools that can be used for this task, analyzing their key pros and cons as well as providing logistic and technical advice on how to best organize and setup yourself for doing visual recording on the iPad.

As similar tools will provide more ready-made icons, templates and patterns available for this kind of real-time idea-capturing, this rare and pioneering visual recording work will begin to catch up even more rapidly.

 

Very useful. 8/10

To prepare for engaging students in the CCSS, this white paper has outlined five important things;  

 

 1.  Lead high-level, authentic discussions:  generating good questions is the beginning.  

2.  Focus on Process, Not Just Content

3. Create Assignments for Real Audiences 

and with Real Purpose

4. Teach Argument, Not Persuasion

5. Increase text complexity

 

In summary:  

 How are these five shifts happening in your classroom? What have you already been doing
well? What would you like to change? Adjusting your lessons to cover the standards will take time and work.
Stopping to ask yourself questions along the way can help you achieve success.
