Education Rethink @edrethink: What Should A Classroom Look Like?

Education Rethink @edrethink: What Should A Classroom Look Like? | Education Trends | Scoop.it

"This article has been making its rounds in social media. I tend to agree with the idea that heavily-decorated, cutesy classrooms are distracting. I've never been a fan of a barrage of brightly-colored signs, Garfield posters and motivational phrases.

 

However, I also see a real danger in district-mandated use of wall space. Here, the issue is less about bright and cutesy and more about things like word walls and anchor charts designed to create visual cues for learning. I see the point to it, but often this creates a text dump that students have to navigate (rather than having a simple notebook or website with tutorials they can access). It starts to feel like an encyclopedia had vomited on the walls."

Deb Salter's insight:

Ideas: Have students design the classroom. See what they would do if possible. Then run past RI.

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking | Education Trends | Scoop.it

In school, we learn about geniuses and their ideas, but how did they get those ideas? What are the mental processes, attitudes, work habits, behaviors, and beliefs that enable creative geniuses to view the same things as the rest of us, yet see something different?

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

Josie Gibson's curator insight, June 8, 2014 9:24 PM

Some excellent reminders - 'All experiences are neutral...you don't see things are THEY are, you see them as YOU are'.
