Do You Know The 4 Stages Of Learning? | Edudemic

Do You Know The 4 Stages Of Learning? | Edudemic | BHS - Articles of Interest | Scoop.it

The idea that different students may learn differently (otherwise known as ‘learning styles) is a pretty hot-button issue. In fact, I don’t think any other topic has garnered us such a large amount of hate-mail, even though we’ve tried to approach the topic from both sides of the argument.

 

That said, regardless of how you feel about whether different learning styles exist or not, there are many things that teachers have tried out over the years to see what works best for them and for their students.

To Think For Themselves, Students Must See Themselves - te@chthought

To Think For Themselves, Students Must See Themselves - te@chthought | BHS - Articles of Interest | Scoop.it

"The first step in helping students think for themselves just might be to help them see who they are and where they are.

 

If we truly want students to adapt their thinking, design their thinking, and diverge their thinking, it (the thinking) has to start and stop somewhere.

 

Generally, this means beginning with the learning target a teacher establishes, and ending with an evaluation of how the student “did.” But thinking has nothing to do with content. Thinking is a strategy to learn content, but they are otherwise distinct. This process, then, is about thought and learning rather than content and mastery."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 21, 6:47 AM

The article begins with wisdom in understanding what is to be used and I would add how it is used. Is it citizenship we want them to learn? I propose that citizenship subsumed in being a good person is the route to go.

TedTalk by Sir Ken Robinson, "Do Schools Kill Creativity?"

 

“We are educating people out of their creative capacities. Picasso one said that all children are born artists. The problem is to remain an artist as we grow up.”

Innovation is not something that just happens.

 

Or, rather it does given the right chemistry.

 

Oftentimes this chemistry is referred to locally in schools as “climate,” but climate is only a small part of the formula. Where innovation comes from is an increasingly popular topic recently as new projects are increasingly visible, and due to digital reach, impactful across fields and industries.

 

Right now, we’re going to stick to innovation in public education.

6 Teaching Strategies Shifts To Promote Deeper Learning
TD's insight:

Technology is a powerful tool for learning that can be used effectively to help students develop the skills necessary to succeed in school and beyond. Students can develop transferable knowledge and skills as they engage in learning experiences that require them to construct knowledge.

30 Ideas To Promote Creativity In Learning

30 Ideas To Promote Creativity In Learning | BHS - Articles of Interest | Scoop.it

The concept of teaching creativity has been around for quite some time.

 

Academics such as  E. Paul Torrance, dedicated an entire lifetime to the advancement of creativity in education. Torrance faced much opposition in his day about the nature of creativity.  Creativity was considered to be an immeasurable, natural ability.  Torrance called for explicit teaching of creativity.  He advocated that it was skill-specific, requiring intentional instruction.  His life’s work ultimately led to the development of the Torrance tests and gifted programs throughout the world.

 

In recent times, there has been a shift towards the increased acceptance of valuing creativity for all learners.  A 2003 TED talk by Sir Ken Robinson discussing this subject reached over 5 million viewers.  It discusses how our current school systems suppress creativity.   He proposes that our current model leaves little room for divergent thinking.

Teaching is impossibly complex. There is no way to be the teacher so many begin their career striving to be. You will simply never be able to fulfill everything that each learner needs, no matter how hard you work, how much you read, and how persistently you collaborate. That’s not meant to be discouraging, but empowering. Start with what’s important, what is in your reach, and what you can do, and begin your Sisyphean push from there.
