Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
One of the most effective ways to provoke student thought is through the building of “rich” questions. By asking meaningful questions - and interacting with textual information – students can come to an understanding that builds upon on their own personal experiences and opinions. Through the use of a template, questions can be created in any way that you want and provide you with a specific platform to begin your questioning focus.

Audrey's curator insight, April 13, 4:21 AM

The questions can be based on exam questions, or directly from past exam questions.  The students can be asked about their own experiences and say whether the textual information has any application to the society in which they live, e.g. How does the information help us?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 17, 11:01 PM

In this post Jackie Gerstein provides a great list of books that you could use to teach children about the skills and attributes that they need to learn. She states " Children’s books, as they are written and presented as stories, have great potential to explain these often abstract concepts.  There is also evidence that the brain processes stories differently and more powerfully than facts and lectures."

The stories are divided into sections:

* Grit

* Resilience

* Hope & Optimism

* Vision

* Self-Regulation

* Empathy & Global Awareness

There is also a list of books suggested by Tony Wagner in the areas of Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, Collaboration and Curiosity and Imagination.

Although geared to children some are appropriate for older students.

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
We need to have higher expectations for ourselves as educators, parents, and policymakers; and we need to have higher expectations for our students -- they will meet the bar wherever it is set.

 

To address this challenge we must revolutionize what we teach, how we teach and how we measure the results. Fundamental and rapid change is necessary -- now, not sometime in the future. Solving our nation's education crisis will take commitment and investment in proven approaches to project-based learning.

 

We have to convert our thinking from maximizing content coverage and "teaching to the test" to using methods that help students understand the applications of what they learn.

 

===> We must help students develop problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration skills -- skills that will prepare them to compete in the global economy. <===

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 2, 12:14 PM

We have to educate in ways today that prepare students and teachers for the world they live now and tomorrow. We seem to lack the will and the leadership. We have talking head syndrome. The best job an educator could have is to be in the classroom, not be a principal.

Annie M Herbert's curator insight, January 9, 2:27 PM

While short, it is a great motivational piece to read.  The project-based learning is the way of the new Science standards too.

Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me?

Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me? | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

 

LEARNing has to involve change…change in the way the LEARNer thinks, feels and acts. It’s not just about LEARNing “stuff” or it shouldn’t be.

 

The “stuff” we are creating these days is growing at exponential rates…and if our goal, as TEACHers, is to simply TEACH this stuff, we might as well just pack up and go home – and leave it all to the tech we now have!

If you can do it with paper why use a digital alternative? Because for some of students, it makes the difference between engagement and being switched off.  Of couse finding the activities that you just can't do with paper...that's the real power of a digital solution.

Leaders fail when they don’t think like leaders. Leaders who think like individual contributors demoralize their team and devalue their leadership. Lousy leaders think like individual contributors....

 

From “I” to “we.” Leadership begins with ===> WE <===.From controlling people to aligning passions. Raise your hand if you enjoy being controlled. I didn’t think so. Successful leaders align the passions of their teammates with organizational mission.

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

This article offers a critical review of the literature on 21st century knowledge frameworks, with a particular focus on what this means for teachers and teacher educators.

 

The authors accomplish this by identifying common themes and knowledge domains in 15 reports, books, and articles that describe the kinds of knowledge that researchers state are integral and important for success in the 21st century.

 

The authors argue that seemingly disparate frameworks converge on three types of knowledge, as necessary for the 21st century: foundational, meta, and humanistic. Although 21st century frameworks are thought to advocate new types of knowledge, little has actually changed in the new century with respect to the overall goals of education.

 

Despite this sense of continuity, significant changes related to how technologies change all three types of knowledge need to be conveyed.

 

The article ends with specific conclusions and recommendations for teacher education.
