“Skills young people should be learning to be prepared for a career in 2020 include:


The ability to concentrate, to focus deeply.

 

The ability to distinguish between the “noise” and the message in the ever-growing sea of information.

 

The ability to do public problem solving through cooperative work.

 

The ability to search effectively for information and to be able to discern the quality and veracity of the information one finds and then communicate these findings well.

 

Synthesizing skills (being able to bring together details from many sources).

 

The capability to be futures-minded through formal education in the practices of horizon-scanning, trends analysis and strategic foresight.”

Cooperative learning is as much a skill for students to develop as it is a reflection on how we work and interact in group situations. Here are some ideas.

Fractus Learning provides a great visual that shares 5 cooperative learning strategies as well as links to additional information including
* A book on Educational Psychology (Creative Commons)

* Additional techniques in a four-page handout called The Basic Collaborative Learning Techniques

* 20 Collaborative Learning Tips and Strategies for Teachers

* 2 Videos

The Common Core promotes cooperative/collaborative learning. These strategies may provide you with new ways to move students on the spectrum of learning, and potentially have your students engaged in project-based learning, which promotes critical thinking skills as well as highly engaged learners who will share their work with a much larger community.

Using formative tools for better project results

Using formative tools for better project results | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

"In a high-school art room, I watched a student working at an easel. When I asked about her progress, she explained that she was attempting to paint sunflowers in the style of Monet, her favorite artist. She told me she liked how the flowers were looking but said the vase was giving her trouble. She planned to keep reworking it, applying layers of acrylic until she got the play of light just the way she wanted. Then she laughed and said, “You should see what’s underneath! I bet there are three or four versions beneath this one.”"

Working with students and helping them understand their learning process is important. If you are planning on utilizing project based learning then many of the formative assessments you may choose will provide students with an understanding of their learning process.

How can you include more formative assessments? The post looks at three areas.

* Vary assessment strategies.

* Look beyond content mastery.

* Facilitate self-assessment.

Do you have great formative assessments that you use? Consider sharing one in the comment area.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 3, 2013 8:46 PM

The graphic (above) provides a nice visual to help understand the difference between project based learning and traditional units with a final project. Where are the differences? Traditional units have lectures, activities, quizzes, a review, an exam the project. With project bases learning you begin with an event plus a rubric and then move through a series of activites that help students reach benchmarks. Project based learning is authentic learning.

More information on this can be found in the post.

How to Make Your Classroom a Thinking Space - Suzie Boss

How to Make Your Classroom a Thinking Space - Suzie Boss | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

Take a moment and imagine a creative work environment. Don't worry about the kind of work going on. Just focus on the space. Close your eyes and picture it. What is that space like? What does it sound like? How are people interacting? Is there movement? Is there evidence of work in progress? Is it tidy, or busy-messy? Can you imagine working there?

Catherine Selby's curator insight, May 18, 2013 8:51 PM

This article gives teachers ideas on how to create a thinking space for students. In any KLA the importance of helping the students to be able to concentrate is extremely importand. One of the aims in the Australian Curriculum is to allow students to become "creative, innovative and enterprising when using traditional, contemporary and emerging technologies, and understand how technologies have developed over time."

By creating a thinking space this allows students the freedom to learn and implement the above areas.

Melita Ryland's curator insight, May 20, 2013 12:19 AM

This article asks us to rethink what we think to be a work space. They outline that a workspace can come in many different forms and still be productive. By simply moving around an changing the workspace can drastically change the outcomes of student leanring and engagement in more ways than 1.

Khushboo Singh's comment, July 8, 2013 8:30 AM
As I read through this article, I am also painting an image of workspace in my mind that can potentially foster creativity. A creative workspace should be such that it enables generation of free ideas and provide opportunities for constructive engagement. The thought of garage or workshop setting or think labs come to my mind. As mentioned in the article, classroom space is very much like a workspace with the only difference that here children are learning to develop things as well as understand how things work. One of the key areas that contributes to learning is the physical space itself. There are enough evidences as also pointed out in the article, that small adjustments to the classroom space can create better engagement and connect to the topic. Depending upon the school investment/pocket size, efforts can be made from improving the physical layout, wiring, designing flexible furnitures, lighting to simple improvements like changing wall colour, movable board, displays etc. These changes will not only lead to enriched work environment but also energise children to think through situations and work in collaboration.

Excellent article about engaging students with technology rather than just doing the same old thing through technology. Electronic worksheets are not the same as project based learning. Hook them into being more curious through technology.

Check out this great visual on Problem Based Learning (PBL)from Mia MacMeekin. It provides a look at the seven steps found in PBL. For each step she provides a number of ways for students to think about the specific process. What are the seven areas?

1. Start with a real life problem

2. Map it out

3. Prototype, prototype, prototype

4. Be creative

5. Think global

6. Join a challenge

7. Set goals

8. Create learning moments

Along the way she also makes some suggestions on what you should be doing as a teacher. If PBL is new to you (or your students) this would be a great visual to have your students recreate, where they may change words and add images to make it their own. Then hang it in your classroom and support them as they become experienced at problem based learning.

Do I just Google that? Tools for Teaching Search Skills in the Primary Classroom | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

"Nowadays many pupils, when given a research task, immediately might think to themselves, 'I’ll just Google that'...There are many resources now available to help in developing pupil skills in searching more effectively using online search engines. And, of course, when they do find information how do pupils know it is appropriate for the task? Or how do they evaluate what is suitable, and how do they present it and show where the information was found."
