Nik's QuickShout: Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks

Nik's QuickShout: Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks | Differentiation | Scoop.it

The concept of the flipped classroom seems to be gaining ever increasing momentum within the field of education generally. Much of this revolves around the use of video to deliver input / lectures to students who can then come to class and do the more engaging and practical part of their work with some teacher support.

How to: Inquiry-Based Learning | YouthLearn

How to: Inquiry-Based Learning | YouthLearn | Differentiation | Scoop.it

"Inquiry-based learning is founded on students taking the lead in their own learning, but it still requires considerable planning on your part [as teacher, guide, learning architect]. Projects must fit into your larger program structure, goals and plans, but the students will be actively involved in planning the projects with you and asking the questions that launch their individual inquiries."

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Differentiation | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Моя практика показывает, что такой путь - верный!

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, January 10, 2014 3:56 AM

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?

 

Putting 'creating' first is the logical manifestation of action-oriented teaching.

Miguel Angel Perez Alvarez's curator insight, January 10, 2014 11:47 AM

Suena provocador comenzar por la creación y la creatividad en lugar de comenzar con la memorización de información.

Enrichment is NOT about Worksheets

Enrichment is NOT about Worksheets | Differentiation | Scoop.it

Where I have struggled the most is with students “who already know the material.” These students need enriched – they need to be pushed to the next level. Not necessarily to the 6th grade indicators but deeper into 5th grade indicators
