Scaffolding for Deep Understanding

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
How do we help novice learners become more expert? Peter Skillen uses collaborative journal writing environments to move kids beyond social talk into deeper thinking.

Skillen begins this post by comparing novice learners and expert learners. He states (all quoted below):

* Novices typically don't plan, monitor, and reflect on their learning.

* Expert learners use 'multiple representations."

* Novices typically don't generate a number of potential solution strategies.

* Novices engage in 'knowledge telling' rather than 'knowledge transformation.'

* Expert learners make multiple passes at knowledge.

* Experts view 'mistakes' as opportunities.

There are two additional statements and each includes additonal information.

He then looks at scaffolded journal writing and provides a variety of sentence starters to help students move "along the continuum from novice to expert." You will find Planning Starters, Reflection Starters, Comment or Discussion Starters, and Elaboration Triggers.

The final portion of this post discusses challenges, and the need "to engage your students in developing their own sentence starters."

Wonder - How Do We Bring it Back?

Wonder - How Do We Bring it Back? | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
Cultural anthropologist and media ecologist Mike Wesch examines how the internet has changed communication and relationships today.

Mike Wesch, who has a number of viral videos, such as The Machine is Us/ing Us, Information R/evolution and An Anthropological Introduction to You Tube, is currently writing a book about "wonder". Below is a quote from an interview.

"I am working on a book about “wonder”—what it is, how to harness it, how to inspire it, why it is on the decline right now, and how to bring it back. Wonder is both a sense of awe and a capacity for contemplation. More than just curiosity, wonder allows us to see beyond the surface of things, to seek patterns, or even better, to question the patterns we have taken for granted. To wonder is to embrace the possibility that we have it all wrong, that the frameworks around which we have built our view of the world might need to change, that the pillars upon which our worldview sit might need readjusting or be destroyed altogether..."

How can we make our classrooms more engaging, creating "spaces that help students connect, get inspired, and achieve deeper learning and better results."

This post provides five simple ideas. Each is followed with short descriptions. Three are listed below:

* Try out new teaching techniques, don't just read about them.

* Try out technology tools that allow you to work side by side with your students rather than positioned next to the board.

* Explore new learning opportunities by accessing a web portal and connecting with another classroom studying the same topic.
