I agree Teri. It encourages reading and encourages students to be in charge of their learning.

Using the Socratic process the educator is a tutor.  The process  encourages evaluative and analytical thinking.

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions | Instruction & Curriculum (& a bit of Common Core) | Scoop.it
Having essential questions drive curriculum and learning has become core to many educators' instructional practices.  Grant Wiggins, in his work on Understanding By Design, describes an essential question as: A meaning of "essential" involves important questions that recur throughout one’s life. Such questions are broad in scope and timeless by nature. They are perpetually arguable…

A recent survey by Lockheed Martin asked middle and high school teachers about their students’ interest in STEM subjects, along with how their schools are preparing students, in an attempt to illustrate country's potential preparedness to fill STEM workforce needs that could send humans to Mars. •The survey found that 38% of educators thought a majority of students seemed “naturally interested” in STEM subjects, and 83% of teachers said that discussing space-related subjects would encourage more students to take an interest in these subject areas. •However, 25% of educators said their current school curriculum is not adequately preparing students for a STEM career, and only 23% say their school is properly preparing students for the ability to pursue a career in space exploration, while 31% of educators reported that budgeting and resources at their schools were adequate to prep students for STEM careers.

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow

16 skills students need to learn today to thrive tomorrow | Instruction & Curriculum (& a bit of Common Core) | Scoop.it

The gap between the skills people learn and the skills people need is becoming more obvious, as traditional learning falls short of equipping students with the knowledge they need to thrive, according to the World Economic Forum report New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning Through Technology.

Today's job candidates must be able to collaborate, communicate and solve problems – skills developed mainly through social and emotional learning (SEL). Combined with traditional skills, this social and emotional proficiency will equip students to succeed in the evolving digital economy.

6 Signs of a Bad Online Instructor

6 Signs of a Bad Online Instructor | Instruction & Curriculum (& a bit of Common Core) | Scoop.it

About 5.4 million students, or 1 in 4, took at least one distance education course during the fall of 2012, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.

That said, even the best online programs – like their traditional campus counterparts – have some poor professors. And it can be trickier to identify those instructors in an online course until it’s too late to switch.

The many students beginning a new online course should be aware of these six signs their professor won’t make the grade.
