My message: yes! Everyone should be supporting speaking & listening. Our culture has a slowly dying sense of civility. Improved communication practices would go far to turn this slow death around. Unfortunately, though I love technology, it does little to advance meaningful face-to-face discourse. Modeling responsible dialogue and providing opportunities for constructive discussion, debate, and consensus-making is an imperative placed upon teachers, parents, business, and yes, government.

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful | Innovative Education for All~ | Scoop.it
Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way. It’s time to not only address the flaws in PBL, but to reinvent it in a way that leads to deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing.

Are you looking for ways to increase rigor in your classroom? This post provides three strategies as well as a number of examples to help you. The strategies are:

1. Design With Inquiry & Diversity

2. Have Students Create Videos–From Beginning To End

3. Use Virtual Tours

Additional detail is available in the post for each of the strategies and suggestions for adding rigor in ELA and math is also discussed. In fact, the final paragraph states asking "students to write riddles about words, rather than having them simply write a definition...requires students to think at higher levels to complete the activity." Adding rigor may not be as difficult as might think...but it may require that we rethink how we are teaching.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 22, 3:24 PM

As teachers today we are told that we must teach our students and help them construct "enduring understanding", providing them with the ability to transfer knowledge from one subject area to another subject area. We are also told that we should personalize education, requiring us to know the strengths and weaknesses and incorporate this into our lessons. And let's not forget that we must also assess our students. How can we make our assessments help students with content retention? This post focuses on this question, and provides five suggestions on ways to do this.

The first three suggestions are:

  • Tests Where Notes or Textbooks are Permitted
  • Take-Home Tests
  • Student-Made Tests

These types of tests may take more time to create but they have the ability to be written so that students have to do more than memorize information. There is more information on this in the post.

The next suggestion is:

  • Projects Pre-Approved by the Teacher

This requires that students demonstrate mastery of the subject. This will require the student to create (a 21st century goal) and additional information is in the post, including a discussion of what this might look like.

The final suggestion is:

    • Revisions and Retests to Build Skillsets

    This section discusses what we may do to help out student build their skillsets through feedback and opportunities to construct accurate information.

    As you read this post you may begin to consider alternative ways to assess your students that help them with content retention.

    Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 3:42 PM

    Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

    "When it comes to personalized learning, there’s one area we tend to neglect whether we realize it or not, and that area is cultural background. Despite the fact that students are constantly engaged in a complex transformation of culturally influenced identity–which in many cases can have a major impact on academic performance–instructors seldom respond to cultural needs the way they respond to psychological, behavioral, or social characteristics."

    This post is split into three sections. The first section looks at the term "culturally responsive instruction" and provides not only a definition but also a list of ten characteristics that provide a more robust understanding.

    The second section provides a look at "common assumptions placed on students from other cultures." Eleven common misconceptions are shared (based on research from the Center for Research on Teaching and Learning at the University of Michigan.

    The final section has 30 recommended instructional strategies. The post states "The cultural inclusiveness of a learning environment will depend upon the kinds of interactions that occur among you and your students." The post discusses the various types of interactions that may take place and then provides a lit of the recommended strategies. Three are listed below. All are briefly discussed in the post.

    * Anticipate possible responses to controversial topics.

    * Be ready to challenge assumptions that groups will either be aided or hindered by having certain kinds of students in their group.

    * Include, as much as possible, materials written or created by people of different backgrounds and/or perspectives.
    As the number of ELL increases in schools within the United States the need for us to be aware of cultural diversity increases. This post provides many suggestions that will be helpful in helping you to meet the needs of these students.
