“ enablingthefuture.org is the personal, privately-run website of Jennifer Owen. Jen is the wife of Ivan Owen, who co-created the first 3D printed hand for a child in South Africa and released the files open source so that anyone, anywhere in the world could take those files and print a hand for themselves or someone in need. She has been a volunteer and participant in the field of open-source, 3D printed prosthetic hands for the past 4 years. Along the way, she has sought to highlight and document stories from the e-NABLE Community of volunteers on the topic of low-cost prosthetics from around the world, as well as to create an information resource for people interested in learning more about the history, design & fabrication of these devices.”

Gianfranco Marini's curator insight, February 25, 1:11 AM

Ottimi esempi di utilizzo del blogging quel strumento a supporto dell'apprendimento di trovano nella pratica didattica dei maestri della scuola primaria. Si tratta di buone pratiche, ampiamente testate da anni di esperienza, che possono fornire ottimo modello da "imitare", adattandolo alle proprie esigenze, per tutti. 

Approfitto di un recente post di Roberto Sconocchini per rilanciare la sua segnalazione dei blog di Maestra Lori e Maestra Samy che sono la dimostrazione di come sia infondato il pregiudizio di chi ritiene che le nuove tecnologie non possano essere usate con profitto nell'insegnamento e apprendimento della scuola primaria. Nei loro blog le maestre documentano la loro attività e quella dei loro studenti, propongono materiali di approfondimento e riflessione, danno vita a un diario di apprendimento in cui viene illustrata la crescita delle loro classi, forniscono una forte motivazione ad apprendere, pubblicano i lavori dei loro alunni, forniscono stimoli per un maggiore coinvolgimento dei bambini nell'attività didattica, permettono ai loro studenti di confrontarsi con il mondo e comunicare con gli altri, sperimentano nuove modalità comunicative e collaborative.

 

Questi i link dei 2 blog:

Maestra Lori: http://maestralori.altervista.org/blog/

Maestra Samy: http://www.maestrasamy.blogspot.it/

Suggerisco anche di dare uno sguardo alla raccolta di post in cui Roberto Sconocchini segnala molti altri blog di classe, l'elenco si trova in questa pagina: http://www.robertosconocchini.it/blog-di-classe.html

Mindfulness doesn't have to take place in the mountains of Nepal or a weekend retreat under a vow of silence. The beauty of the technique is that it's so simple you can do it anywhere and just about anytime.

[Infographic] Deeper Learning: 4 components of the Theory of Action

[Infographic] Deeper Learning: 4 components of the Theory of Action | BeBetter | Scoop.it
“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 itself the “Deeper Learning Network” has codified some of what its members believe are essential qualities of deep learning (check out how students lead parent teacher conferences in this model). Some of the goals include learning designated content, critical thinking, communication skills, collaborating effectively and connecting learning to real-world experiences.To better understand what schools in the Deeper Learning Network were doing differently, Monica Martinez and Dennis McGrath visited several schools and wrote a book about what they found: “Deeper Learning How Eight Innovative Public Schools Are Transforming Education in the Twenty-First Century.” They have also put together a guide to help interested educators create the conditions necessary to make this model thrive.As the Deeper Learning: 4 Components of the Theory of Action Infographic shows, the model requires a big shift from traditional school and rests on positive school culture and collaborative professional teams of teachers who are committed to the vision of the school.Deeper Learning, as described by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, is the means for teaching students to use their knowledge and skills in a way that prepares them for real life by mastering core academic content, such as language arts, history, math, and science. The students also learn how to think critically, collaborate, communi-cate effectively, direct their own learning, and believe in themselves. The book is intended to inspire parents, educators, and external stakeholders about what is possible and to provide examples of key strategies and common practices used by eight different schools to ensure students develop Deeper Learning (DL) outcomes.The Planning Guide offers practical guidance on the conditions that have to be established for schools to truly change their practices to ensure students leave school with the sophisticated content knowledge and skills needed to be critical thinkers, problem-solvers, collaborators and communicators. It is our hope that the Guide, with its series of exercises and set of resources that demonstrate how schools can create the conditions that are necessary for Deeper Learning, will help you develop a strategic plan to transform your school.”

“An individual with a digital mindset understands the power of technology to democratize scale and speed up every form of interaction and action” Growth MindsetCarol Dweck, in her research, differentiated between Fixed Mindset and Growth Mindset, and how these linked to people’s perception of their own abilities. Those with a fixed mindset believe that intelligence is static, and this can become an obstacle to change in behavior. This in turn makes it difficult for them to be learning agile or to adjust to a rapidly changing and ambiguous world. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset are likely to take every opportunity to pull the resources they need to perform better. They are usually the ones to volunteer information, ask questions and try out new ways of doing things. It cannot be argued that the digital world calls for constant exploration, experimentation and learning. And individuals with a growth mindset are more likely to put in extra effort to learn new things, take charge of their own learning, and possess a resilience that helps them to overcome challenges.Agile ApproachBeing agile is more than just adapting to change. In the age of disruptive tech, we must be able to foresee and change before the need to change arises. Agility in this context encompasses the skill of being able to scan the landscape of one's domain of work and organizational ecosystem, and keeping pace with what is happening at the edges to remain relevant. In the digital era, this would mean being comfortable with technology, seeing change as an opportunity, and accepting the new ways of working without feeling threatened.
