Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 3, 2015 10:57 AM

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation envisions an education system where learning transcends the traditional school calendar and setting. They envision a system where learners progress based upon mastery of a skill or topic, rather than time spent in a classroom.

And hey - learners shouldn't be bored in the classroom. Let's reshape our system so that learning is personalized, and learners have a true voice in their education.

Student centered learning

Learning is personalized

Learning is competency based

Learning happens anytime, anywhere

Students take ownership

How do students learn? There are many concepts that look at this question, and the visual above in one way to view this. 

To the left you have a box that shows that students take in content by reading, writing, listening and experiencing, and that to comprehend and interpret content they must have prior knowledge, make observations, identify main and supporting ideas and gather evidence.

In the midle section the student has to take the input and use critical thinking skills. To do this they must also be engaged in and committed to the learning process. 

And the final section looks at their output, how does the student show what they have learned.

In all phases technology may play a role.

This visual would be great to spark discussion amongst faculy.

Seven Key Takeaways from FIT Teaching

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 14, 2014 7:06 PM

Have you heard of FIT Teaching? FIT stands for Framework for Intentional and Targeted Teaching. This post looks at seven key points that came out of a summer institute. For more information on each of the points click through to the post.

* Recognize that wrong answers came from somewhere. Dig deeper to find out where they came from.

* Ask students what they are learning, not what they are doing.

* Separate compliance from competence.

* Automate responses to recurring events.

* Establish the purpose of a lesson. Determine what students should learn and why they should learn it.

* Get kids to produce language, not just hear it. Encourage collaborative work using academic vocabulary.

* Remember that the gradual release of responsibility does not have to be linear.

Some of these points may resonate with you. If one or more do, think about how you will implement it in your classroom this year.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 16, 2014 2:06 PM

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning

Why we need more visual texts in our teaching and learning | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

Found this fantastic infographic touting the success of infographics. Reading it ( or more correctly, viewing it) immediately focused my thoughts on the use of visual texts in classrooms today. Click on the screenshot above to view the animated, interactive info graphic that presents  13 reasons why we should use infographics ( or visual texts in general). Unlike other infographics I link to on Mr G Online, I’m not going to discuss the specific points presented – that would be contradictory to the message of the infographic. I’ll let you get your own meaning from it. However, I am going to reflect on how it made me consider the use of visual texts in education.

 

If we take at face value the research this infographic is based on, human beings are, at heart, visual learners. Our first written languages were image based (hieroglyphics). Our first recorded historical artefacts are cave paintings. Before the Bible was printed, the story of Christianity was predominantly told through Church Art. Museums are based on our desire to see artefacts firsthand.

 

I in no way want to devalue the importance of reading. Making connections with the printed word promotes creativity and imagination as we strive to interpret the  detailed writings of an author. Words allow us to add our own meaning to written texts rather than have an artist’s or film maker’s interpretation forced upon us. Reading is vital for learning and engaging with the world.

really? more of these non-classical pedagogical methods?

Audrey's curator insight, August 29, 2013 2:53 PM

You can absorb the visual faster and make sense of it in a holistic way; particularly if you spend time engaging with the information from different physical points of view. The information is embedded in the memory because the individual is encouraged to project their own meaning.  Having been directed to view educational materials, the learner can them be asked questions to test their understanding. 

 

Visual learning is necessary from a young age and is what home school sources learning is all about.

How do we prepare out students for Web 3.0 learning? This slide show by Judy O'Connell provides us an opportunity to look back in time, from what we might refer to as Web 0 and the journey to where we are today and where we are heading. Many define Web 2.0 as the social web. Web 3.0 will be defined by data, and the ability to link data in new ways. Many excellent resources are embedded within this slide show, so find some time to pull up your chair and learn more about what the future may hold.

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."

Blended Learning Can Benefit Students If It Is Done Right | Gallup.com

One of the hottest topics in education in recent years has been Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), which deliver all content through the Internet. Depending on who you listened to, it seemed like MOOCs were going to be both the savior and the death of higher education. It turns out they were neither.

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.

And into the vast oceans of information a wanderer is just bound to be lost. Map in your mind, what is research all about, what are the key points and what you hope to achieve as the conclusion of this research and does your information smoothly flows proving towards your conclusion?

The Secrets Of Top Students - Edudemic

The Secrets Of Top Students - Edudemic | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

"Top students aren’t made, they’re born. After effortlessly absorbing whatever the teacher throws at them, they spout it back on tests and watch the A’s come rolling in. They have exceptionally high IQs, making it next to impossible for the rest of the class to compete with them. They’re the ones who leave exams early and breeze through the most complex material in the syllabus. They are eggheads, nerds, geeks, and their success is the result of innate talent and ability."

Do you believe the attributes above are what is necessary for top students or do you think these are misconceptions? Stephanie Weisman, author of "The Secrets of Top Students", interviewed 45 other "outstanding students – including Rhodes scholars, Goldwater scholars, Fulbright recipients, a National Spelling Bee Champion, and students in top law and medical schools – on how they achieved academic success." (She was also a top student and she discusses the challenges she had in school in this post.)

The answers the students gave might surprise you. What is most important?

* Hard work

* Sacrifice
* Support at home

Here are some of Krissy's thoughts behind Learning:

 

"Learning is a journey.  Our kids change. The world changes.  We change as teachers.  This morning, I made a revised version of Classroom A versus Classroom B.  As someone pointed out, it’s not a black and white issue. There is so much grey and so much individual choice.  I’m not saying A or B is better for everyone. I’m saying you’ve gotta think and really understand what you want learning to look like in your classroom."
