Out of High School, Into Real Life :: NY Times

Out of High School, Into Real Life :: NY Times | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"Some 30 percent of this year’s three million graduating seniors will not go straight to college, a number that is ticking up as an improving economy draws more graduates directly to work. They go to Walmarts and to welding shops, restaurants, salons, hospitals and construction sites, to start careers on the tougher side of the vast economic and cultural divide that is demarcated by a college degree.

"Some — mostly boys, researchers say — will land high-paying jobs as welders, electricians, plumbers or air-conditioning technicians. But the number of higher-skilled jobs attainable with a high school diploma is eroding over the long term, replaced by low-skilled work, despite President Trump’s promises to champion blue-collar workers.

"This graduation season, The New York Times visited schools in rural Idaho, an industrial city in Indiana and California’s suburban Inland Empire to talk with seniors and their parents about their plans, hopes and dreams — and their decisions not to continue their education."

Teachers should be involved in their own learning and choose what is important to their teaching. Andragogy, which is teaching adults, and pedagogy are different. With lived-experiences adults can choose in responsible ways. Will they make mistakes? Yes, but part of learning is becoming responsible for those mistakes and learning.

12 Principles Of Modern Learning -

12 Principles Of Modern Learning - | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
What are the principles of modern learning?

Well, that depends on how you define ‘learning’ and what you’d consider ‘modern.’ Richard Olsen  put together this useful visual way, way back in 2013–a chart that lays out three categories of a modern approach to learning–Modern, Self-Directed, and Social.

These broad categories are then broken up into four principles per category. Each principle is then described by its Reality (its function) and Opportunity (the result of that function). Honestly, these two categories are a bit confusing–or at least the distinction between some of the entries are (the ability to participate and enables modern learners to participate, for example).

Overall, though, defining ‘modern learning’ through inquiry, self-direction, and connectivity is at the core of what we preach here at TeachThought.

This is a reminder to both students and teachers (we are all learners) that a can-do attitude can help us to overcome barriers and obstacles to growth. Often we see a single route to success. When that pathway is blocked, we may give up. But a positive attitude supports multiple pathways and once we persevere we find them. It is about growth, not about benchmarks - any growth, small or large is positive.
