Competency based education is a great idea but can it be used in a traditional classroom setting?

Deanna Dahlsad's curator insight, November 27, 2013 2:57 PM

This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.

What Does a Teacher Mean When He Calls Your Child Slow, Weak, or Struggling?

What Does a Teacher Mean When He Calls Your Child Slow, Weak, or Struggling? | college and career ready | Scoop.it
I know a teacher—a great one, actually—who, in private, refers to his students as “bricks.” As in, “dumb as a brick.” You almost never hear that level of candor among teachers, and not just because every parent’s got a lawyer on retainer.

We know words make a difference and this post explores how our words as a teacher may impact our students, how words we use for students whom are "failing" are described. Ben Orlin asks "So how do teachers frame failure for their students? What words do they use?

He continues to explore the words slow, weak, behind, low, struggling and unintelligent, writing about how each "embodies different assumptions about the engines of success, the nature of failure, and how students’ minds operate. Each word is a bite-sized piece of educational ideology."

Although he explores this issue through the lens of math the concepts apply across all curriculum.

With the Common Core we are being asked to personalize education for our students and to make sure that all hit standards based on grade...a task we know more challenging for some students. If we have a student whom has been labeled at some point in their journey we also have to address the issue of mindset, and help that student move towards a growth mindset. The issue of language, and how we use specific words, is a component of this, and this post highlights some issues in a format that is easy to understand.

A very helpful primer on content curation.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, September 22, 2013 2:49 PM

 

Stacia Johnson and Melissa Marsh have recorded a 10-minute video introducing to Content Curation for their EDCI515 graduate course at the University of Victoria.

 

Topics covered:

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | college and career ready | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"

 

"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.

 

Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."

 

This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.

 

And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"

 

What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

Audrey's curator insight, August 13, 2013 2:01 PM

Brilliant.  This is an example of what is known as "flipping" where the student is directed to where information can be found, e.g. Youtube, websites, powerpoint, etc and set critical evaluative questions.

 

Home School Learning is an ideal example of students as curators of their learning. It is essential for children to learn to be in charge of their learning from pre-school in order to develop essential evaluative and critical analytical skills. audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk.

 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 13, 2013 4:43 PM

I had a similar conversation yesterday and as I prepare my lit review this thinking has emerged. It is less about content and more about skills, attitudes, habits, practices, etc. in learning.

Priscilla Der's curator insight, April 6, 7:12 PM

This article is a reminder that as we are curating content as teachers so are students. Rather then memorizing or reciting textbook facts, students should be able to steer and set their own learning goals (this is where PBL) comes into mind.

A Comprehensive Approach to RTI: Embedding Universal Design for Learning and Technology

Response to intervention (Rtl) provides tiered levels of supports to all students and allows for increasingly more inten- sive and individualized instruction. Similarly, universal design for learning (UDL) addresses needs of students by proactively plan- ning for instructional, environmental, and technology supports to allow all students to effectively access and engage in instruction. Although these two frameworks are widely accepted as structures for supporting students with diverse learning needs, the relation- ship between them has not been adequately developed. This arti- cle describes how an ecological Rtl framework that integrates scientifically based instructional strategies, proactive instruc- tional design, and purposeful technology use can provide a more seamless support system for all students.
