6 Principles Of Genius Hour In The Classroom

6 Principles Of Genius Hour In The Classroom | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

In traditional learning, teachers map out academic standards, and plan units and lessons based around those standards. In Genius Hour, students are in control, choosing what they study, how they study it, and what they do, produce, or create as a result. As a learning model, it promotes inquiry, research, creativity, and self-directed learning.

'Connectivism': Creating Learning Communities

'Connectivism': Creating Learning Communities | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

Via Patty Ball
Al Post's insight:

Love this quote from the article:

 

"In a connectivist world, learning by sharing is the only sustainable way of learning. This moves the Cartesian dictum of “I think, therefore I am”, to a “We participate, therefore we are”, as John Brown and Richard Adler nicely (Brown/Adler 2008: 18) nicely put it."

A great many leaders in large organizations do not understand social media and do not engage with it.  This is a very useful schematic to help you better understand better what kind of online behaviour is appropriate depending upon what your objectives are.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.
