6 Ways to Make Learning Visible

6 Ways to Make Learning Visible | Scooping Literacy: Diversified Learning |
How do we distinguish knowledge, skills, and thinking from….learning? How do we make learning visible, so that we might surface and document powerful discoveries about the influence of our teaching on learners? These questions will guide several of my conversations with teachers on the ground this week, as we begin exploring John Hattie’s work and the Reggio Emilia approach.

Both concern themselves with the moves that students and teachers make as learning occurs, and both inspire teachers to commit to documentation, as the evidence captured helps teachers and students assess the impact of their efforts far better than grades do.

Terry Doherty's insight:

Love the simplicity of idea #1 - display a child's work collected over time. Then go back and reflect on it together!

Don't knowledge, skills and thinking derive from learning?

Smart Teenage Brains May Get Some Extra Learning Time

Smart Teenage Brains May Get Some Extra Learning Time | Scooping Literacy: Diversified Learning |

"Brain research is helping scientists tease out subtle differences in how teenagers learn. John Hewitt is a neuroscientist who studies the biology of intelligence. He knew intelligence has a strong biological component. If your parents are smart, you'll probably be smart — even without a lot of fuss about the right schools and learning environments. But recently, Hewitt discovered something that surprised him. 'Well, I may have been wrong,' he admits. 'It may well be that the environmental boost you can get, or the detriment you can suffer through adversity, may indeed be a little more important at a critical period in adolescence than I had previously thought. And this may especially be true for parents of very bright children.' What Hewitt, director of the Institute for Behavioral Genetics at the University of Colorado, is talking about is a new understanding of the interplay between your genetic inheritance and how you learn from the environment. He credits another researcher, Angela Brant, for coming up with a new insight into this critical period in development. So what is it about children that allows them to grasp the 'deep' knowledge of syntax more quickly than do adults? Neuroscientists think the reason children do better at such challenges is that young brains are more receptive to learning. The study, published in Psychological Science, suggests that for many children it may be a mistake to stop learning new things. Even if you're a teenager, it might not be too late to start learning Chinese, chess or the cello." | by Shankar Vedantam

Education vs Learning - What Exactly is the Difference? - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Scooping Literacy: Diversified Learning |
Surely learning and formal education are not entirely the same thing? But what exactly is the difference?

Terry Doherty's insight:

Nice comparisons and contrasts to make understanding easier.

There are two intertwined definitions of education and only one is included here. Educare is leading students out of child. Educere is allowing students to gain control over their learning and realizing they have support when needed. We have eliminated the latter replacing it with the instrumental version called learning which is what School is about.

Excellent read. I recommend taking a look at this article. Sometimes the lines between education and learning can be blurry. Time to clear that up.
