Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

Maybe “design” can help in understanding the importance of cultural diversity and interdisciplinarity.

 

Why?

Because, “to design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit; it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade and even perhaps to amuse.”-Paul Rand

10 Wonderful Apps to Teach Students about Earth Day

10 Wonderful Apps to Teach Students about Earth Day | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

You might have noticed today a doodle displayed in the Google search engine. This animated doodle that Google uses to adorn its homepage marks the Earth Day anniversary April 22, 2013.

 

This is a great occasion for us teachers and educators to celebrate this day with our students and draw their awareness to the importance of saving our HOME from looming dangers.

 

One strategy to use to raise students awareness of the importance of our planet is by sharing with them these beautiful iPad apps . Check out this  list of the titles I have handpicked for you in honor of Earth Day. Enjoy

When Students Are Inspired, They and Their Teachers Are Happier

When Students Are Inspired, They and Their Teachers Are Happier | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it
Happiness interview: Andrew Mangino. By Gretchen Rubin...

 

How can we usher in a new era of happiness (and inspiration) in America's schools?


I had to include this question because it's the one I think about every day!

 

Our team at The Future Project believes that just as there is an achievement gap, there is also an inspiration deficit in our schools. When students (and teachers, administrators, custodians, coaches, and parents) are not inspired, they are not happy -- at least not as happy as they could be! Nor do they learn well; reform, we believe, must be built on a foundation of inspiration. So, we're aiming to bring about the world in which all students have found something that inspires and truly excites them, whether civil engineering, French food, botany, or the Roaring Twenties, and channeled it to improve the world around them. All before finishing high school!

 

Read more, very interesting...:

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, July 5, 2012 1:51 AM
1. Explain. Some recent research shows that many students do poorly on assignments or in participation because they do not understand what to do or why they should do it. Teachers should spend more time explaining why we teach what we do, and why the topic or approach or activity is important and interesting and worthwhile.
2. Reward. Students who do not yet have powerful intrinsic motivation to learn can be helped by extrinsic motivators in the form of rewards. Rather than criticizing unwanted behaviour or answers, reward correct behaviour and answers.
3. Care. Students respond with interest and motivation to teachers who appear to be human and caring.
4. Have students participate. One of the major keys to motivation is the active involvement of students in their own learning.
5. Teach Inductively.
6. Satisfy students' needs. Attending to need satisfaction is a primary method of keeping students interested and happy.
7. Make learning visual. Use drawings, diagrams, pictures, charts, graphs, bulleted lists, even three-dimensional objects you can bring to class to help students anchor the idea to an image.
8. Use positive emotions to enhance learning and motivation. Strong and lasting memory is connected with the emotional state and experience of the learner.

Also, we have a large number of WEB 2.0 tools for free use in our class.

Visible Thinking

Visible Thinking | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

At the core of Visible Thinking are practices that help make thinking visible: Thinking Routines loosely guide learners' thought processes and encourage active processing. They are short, easy-to-learn mini-strategies that extend and deepen students' thinking and become part of the fabric of everyday classroom life.

 

Thinking Ideals are easily accessible concepts capturing naturally occurring goals, strivings or interests that often propel our thinking. Four Ideals -- Understanding, Truth, Fairness and Creativity -- are presented as modules on this site.

 

There are associated routines for each ideal and within each module there are activities that help deepen students' concepts around the ideal.
