Is homework stupid?

Is homework stupid? | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
The average American high-school student spends seven hours a week on homework. The average for students across all developed countries is about five hours (pdf). Is it all a colossal waste of time? Mark Barnes, a former teacher and author, says yes. He tells Quartz his experience teaching, and working with teachers, has convinced him that homework does not...

Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, February 19, 7:43 PM

A key principle is that moderation is important. The average amount of weekly homework assigned to kids across OECD countries fell by an hour between 2003 and 2012, with only a few countries—the US and Australia among them—bucking the trend with increased workloads. I wonder why?

Here's what happened when a school tried recess four times a day | A. Pawlowski | USAToday | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

"There was a part of me that was very nervous about it," Donna McBride, a first-grade teacher at the school, told TODAY Parents.

"I was trying to wrap my head around my class going outside four times a day and still being able to teach those children all the things they needed to learn."

Related: Why some schools are banning homework

Some five months into the experiment, McBride's fears have been alleviated. Her students are less fidgety and more focused, she said. They listen more attentively, follow directions and try to solve problems on their own instead of coming to the teacher to fix everything. There are fewer discipline issues.

"We're seeing really good results," she noted.

Parents are seeing them, too.

Most homework is 'pointless', expert says - Telegraph

Most homework is 'pointless', expert says - Telegraph | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

A new Ofsted regime will encourage teachers to set “completely pointless” homework for their students, an education expert has claimed.

Youngsters will be forced to endure more “back breaking” after-school tasks with little educational value, according to Tom Bennett, director of the ResearchEd conference.

He added that schools were encouraging “the pickpocketing of family life” by setting youngsters futile work in order to hit targets.

Under the new regime of England’s inspectorate, Ofsted, progress will be shown through schoolbooks and homework, he said.

Writing in the Times Educational Supplement, Mr Bennett, who teaches at a school in Essex, argued this would encourage teachers to set more after-school tasks.

Describing many homework tasks as “so much wasted on so little”, he cited real examples including ‘Design your own ideal bedroom’ and ‘Imagine how Jesus felt on the cross and draw it’.

 

He wrote: “I have no problem with setting challenging homework but I do disagree with the pickpocketing of family life to serve the requirements of a school’s homework timetable.

Why It's Time To Rethink (And Question) Homework | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
The concept of homework as we have known it in the past is changing rapidly, since it often distorts the overall picture of learning.

Homework vs home vs work, underlined by learnIng. Homework was originally designed  as an extension of a lesson to reinforce  what was taught.

 

What if now students are becoming more self directed and self motivated?  Fast and easily assessible content disrupts the "teacher-dependent student" paradigm, allowing (and motivating) the  student to self learn and group learn (student-student) rather beyond the formal homework.

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers

Alternatives To Homework: A Chart For Teachers | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it
Part of rethinking learning means rethinking the bits and pieces of the learning process–teaching strategies, writing pieces, etc.

Which is what makes the following chart from Kathleen Cushman’s Fires in the Mind compelling. Rather than simply a list of alternatives to homework, it instead contextualizes the need for work at home (or, “homework”). It does this by taking typical classroom situations–the introduction of new material, demonstrating a procedure, etc.), and offering alternatives to traditional homework assignments.

I rarely assigned homework. It seemed counter-productive and counter-intuitive. The exception, if can be called homework, were projects which engaged students and their parents at home. This provided an untapped resource, excited students and parents, and was highly successful. I always provided more time for these projects so they did not work against learning.

Good piece, but need to consider also; this country is not really catering to multi-cultural group.  But, we should learn from their examples - we in Australia definitely moving towards over-educating, with even prep losing its play-based approach.  Also worth noting - the teacher in the classroom has the biggest impact on whether or not the students will learn - effective teachers=effective learners.

Alternatives to Traditional Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Banco de Aulas | Scoop.it

I just came across this chart somewhere online and find it really interesting and worth sharing with you here inEducational Technology and Mobile Learning. The chart is created by connectedprincipals and features some alternative ways to do "traditional' homework. I am not really sure the labelling of homework as traditional is a correct nomenclature or not because for me there is no such a thing called traditional homework, any work  scheduled to be done at home is a homework. This is how I see it from my end.
