Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning

Designing for Emergence: The Role of the Instructor in Student-Centered Learning | college and career ready | Scoop.it

I believe in student-centered learning, and I believe there is huge potential for this kind of learning to occur in online environments. But the instructor is a key element of that learning, and we need to talk more explicitly about what her role is and the specific ways she negotiates and leverages her authority, guidance, and presence to design learning environments in which emergence is possible.

After reading this article I kept thinking "education as Amazon.com" - because technology is going to allow us to use those algorithms to individualize the educational experience. The BEST part, though, is under the heading "The human factor: Teachers and data." The technology is best utilized under the professional direction of a human facilitator...

I love this as a beginning of the year discussion. it is not about what we can't do or shouldn't do, but what we can. It is time to focus on affirmation on a regular basis and accentuate the positive.

Based on Michael Petrelli's concluding paragraphs, perhaps I am now more open to referring to the standards by the state name--if that makes people feel better. I have felt strongly about referring to the standards as what they are, but if the name is the issue for most citizens, then I can move:  "A rose by any other name would smell as sweet" (Shakespeare).

What is Project 24

 

What is Project 24?
Why Is It So Important?

District leaders are under extreme pressure to raise standards for all students with fewer resources. The Project 24 framework and accompanying resources offer district and school leaders tangible assistance in systemic planning for the effective use of technology to improve student outcomes. The framework synthesizes research and best practice into a set of topics to be discussed and addressed by district and school teams. Technology is not the silver bullet and all purchases must be aligned to a vision for student learning to achieve the goal of “college and career readiness” for all students. Project 24 materials are organized around a powerful planning framework and seeks to be a one-stop shop for district-level planning tools, expert advice, creative ideas, and tangible suggestions from experienced education experts and nonprofit education membership organizations.

Using the Website
In an effort to support districts in digital learning implementation, the Project 24 Website is broken into the following sections:Start: You are here now - This section highlights the purpose, framework, and components of the Project 24 initiative.Learn: The heart of Project 24, this section categorizes resources including webinars and hangouts, blog posts, and suggested implementation strategies into the seven topics (gears) in the framework.Explore: Whether state and district leaders are wrestling with BYOD, Common Core, or Digital Citizenship, this section provides suggestions on how to tackle the initiative using the framework as a planning tool.Assess: This section focuses on the Project 24 self-assessment, how to assemble a team, and how districts can analyze report that is provided free after the assessment is completed.Collaborate: States and districts are encouraged to use this section to join the MOOC-ed, Coaching MOOC, and to learn about ways states and districts are implementing the Project 24 framework.Lead: Devoted to leadership, this section provides examples of leaders who are "walking the walk" through educator and district leadership spotlights as well as access to the Project 24 team of experts.About: This section provides links to the Alliance for Excellent Education, the Center for Digital Learning Policy, research and policy papers, as well as materials that districts can use to share Project 24 information with interested colleagues.

Higher Standards Lead Tennessee students to make big gains in ACT scores

Higher Standards Lead Tennessee students to make big gains in ACT scores | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Tennessee's average ACT score, historically slow to improve despite constant attention from educators, has made its biggest year-to-year leap since

 

"Though its 19.8 composite score is still well below the national average of 21, Tennessee's class of 2014 saw a three-tenths of a point bump from last year, new results released Wednesday show. That's tied with Kentucky and Wyoming for the largest increase among the 12 states that require all students to take the college entry exam."

Mindsets: Emphasizing Effort, Attitude, and Respect

Mindsets: Emphasizing Effort, Attitude, and Respect | college and career ready | Scoop.it
August 22nd, 2014. Mary Ryerse. As families head "back to school" we should also equip students with three major mindsets. Read more today!

 

Living out this approach personally on a daily basis is challenging – at least for me. Fostering these dispositions in our own children is even more challenging. During this back-to-school season, I’m working on reinforcing these mindsets  - as a parent – within an education context (and while this particular piece focuses on the parent perspective, these ideas can also be used in the classroom). When it comes down to it, it’s really training kids how to think about learning and themselves. What follows are are some ideas that apply them within the context of school:

Effort. Full effort is at the heart of Carol Dweck’s work on growth mindset, encouraging people to “believe that abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work.” You can help:

Say things like, “Give it your best” or “this may take a few tries.”Ask “What was something you did today where you felt proud of how hard you tried?”Use digital tools to maximize productivity and build ownership in learning.

Establishing A Culture Of “Can” In Your Classroom

Establishing A Culture Of “Can” In Your Classroom | college and career ready | Scoop.it

"The long-term output of any school should be not just proficient students, but enabled learners. An “enabled” learner can grasp macro views, uncover micro details, ask questions, plan for new knowledge and transfer thinking across divergent circumstances. This doesn’t happen by content “knowledge holding,” or even by the fire of enthusiasm, but by setting a tone for learning that suggests possibility, and by creating a culture of can."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 4, 6:35 PM

One of my favorite videos on growth mindset is Carol Dweck sharing the word yet, specifically where she says that if a student says "I can't do that" she says to tell the student to say "I can't do that yet." To me that is a way to shift the culture of the classroom, where students learn that as time goes on what they are able to do things they could not before.

This post explores this culture of "can", sharing ideas on how you might move your classroom to reach this culture. Three areas are discussed.

1. Use the Gradual Release of Responsibility Model

This is a model that many of us may already use. The post describes it as "show me, help me, let me." In my school we talk about "I do, we do, you do."

2. Intentionally Use the Individual Student as a Culture-Maker

This requires that we find the time as we teach to "honor the contribution of others," specifically our students. Culture does not grow from a top down approach.

3. Diverse — and Authentic — Terms for Success

Creating a classroom that is learner centered, where students also have input to help create authentic learning.

More information on these concepts are in the post.

Nancy Jones's curator insight, August 5, 8:36 AM

Love the ideas here and realize the challenge of the mission. Our kids need to embrace their mistakes as learning opportunities rather than expect immediate mastery and feedback with praise.  i am thinking of making a classroom poster ( or posters) with the Word "YET" in giant letters and use that as our mantra.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, Today, 3:21 PM

Pillar #1 is relationships. This means knowing the stories students bring to school, not as excuses, but as part of knowing who that person is. Several years ago, a School manager explained that one "problem student" respected me and he listened to. The conversation stopped there. Instead of wanting to know what that meant, no one, including the School manager, was interested in how to build a respectful relationship with that student. It was like it was too much work.
