Responsibility vs Accountability

Responsibility vs Accountability | Common Core Oklahoma | Scoop.it
If learners take responsibility for their learning, they will be more motivated to learn. If teachers are accountable for their learning, then there is no reason to be motivated other than for a grade.

Connie Wise's insight:

My goal is always to encourage students to take ownership of their learning.  What you learn is yours-- it can't be taken away!

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 15, 2013 12:10 PM

Responsibility means a moral obligation and something taken upon one's self.

Accountability is more of a social contract or social obligation. Accountability can be measurable. If teachers are accountable for their learners' learning, then why would learners feel responsible for their own learning?


When learners feel a sense of ownership, they want to engage in academic tasks and persist in learning. If teachers and learners are learners first, then responsibility comes with being a learner. Learners of all ages become responsible for their learning when they own and drive their learning.

So what is it? Teachers and learners need to be accountable for their own learning by taking responsibility for their learning. What do you see as the difference between accountability and responsibility?

Get Your Kids Using Their Devices To Learn—With An App Purge « Annie Murphy Paul

We know that today’s kids spend a lot of time on their devices. But how much of that time is spent using apps that are educational in nature?

Not enough, according to a just-released report from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, titled “Learning at Home: Families’ Educational Media Use in America.”

Michael Levine, executive director of the Joan Ganz Cooney Center, writes about the report’s findings in a piece on the Huffington Post. In our rush to provide children with electronic devices, he notes, “we may have forgotten to ask a vital question: How much of the time kids spend on these devices is helping them prepare for their futures? Are the tablets and apps that parents are buying for them signaling a shift towards compelling educational content?”

The answer is no, writes Levine:

Connie Wise's insight:

Enjoyed this idea: 

Joke and Punchline Match up: Divide the class in two groups. Each student in group one gets a strip of paper with a very brief joke on it (example: what type of music do mummies listen to?) The students in group two each have a piece of paper with a punchline written on it (answer: wrap music). Students mingle until they find the right match and their partner.

Reading by Third Grade Is Target Set by States

Reading by Third Grade Is Target Set by States | Common Core Oklahoma | Scoop.it
States are trying a variety of tactics to improve third grade literacy from holding kids back a year to helping teachers improve.
Connie Wise's insight:

Article indicates that early parent involvement in reading and language is key.


"But reading scores are notoriously difficult to improve. While math scores on tests such as NAEP have improved substantially since testing began in the early 1990s, reading scores have  increased only by slim margins. Experts believe that’s because children learn math mostly at school, while they learn most of their language skills at home, much of it before they even enter school.


Neuman said that means states wanting to make significant improvements in early reading need to target parents before their children reach school, or even preschool."

Sarah McElrath's comment, April 3, 2013 12:17 PM
Whether you have students go through and highlight isn't as important as the idea of going through a text multiple times and looking for different things. Some of the steps looked at the word choice, but some of the steps looked for themes and connections. All of that plays a part in what makes a text work--or not. Plus, note the last step which says, "now you are ready to discuss the text." So I think students and teachers can still get to the "contrast of darkness and spirit" or any other point that seems important. And would teachers do this on all texts? No, probably not. But if you started by having students practice going through and looking for different things, eventually they may gain the mindset that deep reading includes multiple readings, looking at different aspects of that text. And for younger students -- concrete is good. Start with the concrete and move to the higher level thinking.

"Content curation not only involves finding relevant and valuable information, but also filtering out unnecessary, inappropriate and inaccurate sources. It combines creativity with analytical skills, can be easily applied in a collaborative context, and also provides an opportunity for peer assessment and feedback as individuals or groups can also rate or evaluate the resources chosen by others."

Nice explaination about content curation as a learning tool!

Nevermore Sithole's curator insight, October 14, 2013 12:24 PM

Article argues that curation is not a new concept for libraries since Librarians select, organise and preserve information. Further, the article argues that content curation involves higher order skills and the ability to appraise sources effectively in order to sieve through large volumes of information. Above all, the article discussess the concepts, aggregation, distillation, elevation, mash-ups and chronology.
