Rather than belittling kids for not learning what they put on the conveyor belt, teachers could be helping to build an alternative to the factory model of school.

Sir Ken Robinson: Alternative Education is Good Education

Sir Ken Robinson: Alternative Education is Good Education | Building Resilient Students | Scoop.it
In 2006, Sir Ken Robinson presented a TED talk about the importance of nurturing creativity in education. That video has been viewed more than eight million times.

Just a few weeks ago, Robinson presented a video TEDx talk in London, addressing how population growth and technology are fueling huge changes in education, and the imperative to make all schools progressive. He argues that the principles of what’s considered “alternative” education are those that should be applied to mainstream education.

It’s hard to argue with these ideas.

The Mind's Eye: An Important Metacognitive Tool For Creative Thought

The Mind's Eye: An Important Metacognitive Tool For Creative Thought | Building Resilient Students | Scoop.it

A wonderful resource on creativity and metacognition.  

 

Includes lots of information:  "What is creativity:  

1. Novelty- a creative product, course of action or idea necessarily departs from the familiar; 2. Effectiveness- it works, in the sense that it achieves some end- this may be aesthetic, artistic or spiritual, but may also be material such as winning or making profit; 3. Ethicality- the term creative is not usually used to describe selfish or destructive behaviour, crimes, war-mongering and the like (Cropely 2010). Although Gardner asserts that creativity is amoral: novel useful ideas or products could either bring benefits or wreak havoc (Moran 2010). For example the science behind nuclear weapons systems could be considered to be creative in conception.   Moves along to discuss how to teach for creativity:  https://sites.google.com/site/creativityinpractice/conclusion

Help or Hindrance: Blended approaches and student engagement - Ako Aotearoa | Building Resilient Students | Scoop.it

Project Description

This project sought to identify effective strategies that teachers can use within a blended learning environment to enhance learner engagement and achievement. A mixed-method approach was used to collect and analyse data. In total, 541 participants from two North Island universities participated in this project.

Ten effective engagement strategies were identified, covering engagement at the beginning of a course, during a course, and re-engaging learners.From the project findings, five conclusions were reached:

The quality of learning depends on the depth of student engagement in the learning process.Click on the image to download the summary report (4.67mb PDF)The systematic application of all 10 engagement strategies identified in this study give teachers the best chance of achieving high levels of student engagement.The skills and effort that teachers apply to create learning experiences is the single most important determinant of the quality of the learning environment.Teachers are time-poor and lack adequate technical support and training in pedagogical principles.Blended learning can make a difference.

This project was launched at ASCILITE 2012
