The campaign to reform the EBacc

The campaign to reform the EBacc | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it

Bacc for the Future

 

Government consultation deadline on 1st May The Government is continuing to rank schools against their performance in EBacc subjects, and has extended this to A level.  Their flagship EBacc and ABacc league table measures still only count maths, English, sciences, languages and humanities. They are currently consulting on how to hold schools to account and we need your help in responding to the proposals. Without this, students will be pushed away from a balanced education, valuable degrees and successful careers, and the supply of creative talent to the UK's thriving creative economy will be cut.

Cognitive And Affective Variables That Should Rule Education

Cognitive And Affective Variables That Should Rule Education | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it
Education must focus on the quality of teaching and learning.

Via Gust MEES

Lynnette Van Dyke's curator insight, January 1, 2013 3:24 PM

Cognitive Variables

Metacognition as knowledge of ways of thinking, thought structures and the capacity to control and modify cognitive learning processes.Systematized general and specific knowledge.Understanding the languages of science and the humanities.Retention of knowledge.Transfer of knowledge: transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches.Transfer of skills: practical application of knowledge.Capacity for generalization and discrimination of contents.Capacity for symbolic and abstract exchange.Capacity to evaluate results.Capacity to develop concepts and categories.Development of imagination to simulate objects and processes.Capacity to formulate problems and take decisions to solve them.Capacity to search for and process information.Capacity to evaluate information to reduce uncertainty.Knowledge of the value of making mistakes as an aid to rectification.Capacity to grasp the whole and act on the parts.

Affective Variables

Development of thought and ethical behavior.Full and responsible exercise of human rights.Democratic cooperative behavior.Simultaneous exercise of rights and obligations for the practice of freedom.Multicultural, intercultural and international understanding.Development of aesthetic sensitivity.Critical sense and spirit of dialogue with full respect for the ideas of others.Flexibility and tolerance.Development of self-criticism.Ability to listen.Fostering sharing attitudes.Capacity to compete with oneself and not with others.To permanently strive to be free from mental and social prejudices.Motivation to learn and cultivation of learning habits.Development of attitudes conducive to creativity and innovation.Capacity for risk-taking and accepting responsibility for learning.Fostering the inquiring spirit to keep curiosity alive.Moderation of superfluous elements.Learning for enterprise: sense of enterprise and initiative.Learning to care: sense of living in harmony with nature and fellow human beings.Learning to carry on learning: sense of living in harmony with knowledge.

These are variables for the «learning persons» i.e. for students and professors. The selective sample of quality variables drawn from the cognitive and affective areas presup­poses the condition of diversification which any educational institution must exhibit in order to comply with the criteria which identify learning which embraces the different areas of thought and action.

All quality variables must be stimulated from the earliest pre-school age.  Other­wise it is a very difficult, almost impossible, task for the university. However, at any age, the world of knowledge and of feeling is always open to exploration and individual growth. If this has not been achieved at the previous levels of the education system or it has not been attempted, it is never too late to learn, and in no event should this be an ex­cuse for the university institution not to fulfill its obligations. In short, what is required is schools and universities prepared to take risks, which will offer a formative education which transcends the mere acquisition of knowledge. That is to say, educational institutions that turns the subject transmitted into a freely available, spiritually fecund element which stimulates the development of thought and action.

[1] This list of learning variables is based in my research on cultural learning presented in my book, The Psychosocial and Cultural Nature of Education  (2004). Boston: Pearson.

These are the tried and true models that have shifted my thinking about leadership and help create teachable leadership moments for others. Mind you, I’m not a scholar, so the models I favor tend to be simple, practical, and I have to had seen evidence that they are effective.

10 Ways That Mobile Learning Will Revolutionize Education

10 Ways That Mobile Learning Will Revolutionize Education | Digital Teesside | Scoop.it
Smartphones and tablet computers are radically transforming how we access our shared knowledge sources by keeping us constantly connected to near-infinite volumes of raw data and information.

 

Up until now, most people relegated “education” to a finite time in their lives: entering school at around five years old and attending school institutions all the way to university. Education had an expiration date, then working life began. This model, which has its roots in the industrial era, is quickly becoming less relevant or applicable to the way we live our lives in the connected age.

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, June 2, 2012 6:14 AM
The primary purpose of the Enrichment/Gifted and Talented Curriculum is to challenge eligible students to think differently and critically through a variety of instructional approaches. Such instructional approaches may include brainstorming, cooperative learning, oral demonstrations and presentations, creative analytical writing, and creative problem solving techniques.
The primary goal for the teacher/facilitator is to determine a particular area of study. Such study may include short term tasks as well as long term projects. Instruction then focuses on refining and expanding previously learned skills through practice and application.
Content consists of ideas, concepts, descriptive information, and facts. Content, as well as learning experiences, can be modified through acceleration, compacting, variety, reorganization, flexible pacing, and the use of more advanced or complex concepts, abstractions, and materials. If they master a particular unit, they need to be provided with more advanced learning activities, not more of the same activity. Their learning characteristics are best served by thematic, broad-based, and integrative content, rather than just single-subject areas. In addition, such concept-based instruction expands opportunities to generalize and to integrate and apply ideas. Middle and secondary schools are generally organized to meet student needs within content areas. Jacobs and Borland (1986) found that gifted students benefit greatly from curriculum experiences that cross or go beyond traditional content areas, particularly when they are encouraged to acquire an integrated understanding of knowledge and the structure of the disciplines.
