Sofy Bertel's curator insight, October 16, 1:45 AM
It was an interesting article! I'm actually an university student and I consider that grouping activities is the most difficult thing to work in class giving the fact that sometimes we do not  interact with all partners there are in the classroom (only the nearest). However, the author of this article makes me to reflect about the importance of when we need to work in groups. For this reason, we need to consider a lot of aspects such as strenghts, likes, dislikes, capabilities, etc. in order to increase our academic abilities. Also, this article give us a lot of strategies to implement in lessons, speacilly with kids which have a lot of abilities to learn and share with others...

“ "Inquiry happens when you focus on the art of teaching." Kath Murdoch. This is an interesting moment in Kath's conversation with teachers. I lose focus on my note-taking as I pursue this thought...

Inquiry happens when you focus on the art of teaching." Kath Murdoch. 

 

After the session, I attempt to categorise the teachers’ ideas under conceptual headings. The more I think about their statements, the more my categories overlap. I consider first Kath’s shared list of inquiry practices and then Ron Ritchhart’s cultural forces. In the end it comes down to a handful of big ideas, for me…

 

Language:  Use a language of learning not compliance. Choose language that supports learners in describing and reflecting on their thinking and learning.

 

Process:  Focus as much on the process of learning as the content. Use split screen teaching. Notice and name how we are learning, not just what we are leaning.

 

Release:  Let go of your expectations and allow students to lead. Ensure the learners do the heavy lifting. Release responsibility as early as possible, then observe where to take the learning next.

 

Teacher as learner:  Position yourself as part of the learning community, not as the expert in the room, both physically and through your interactions. Make your own thinking process visible.

 

Time:   Do less, but do it more deeply. Devote time to developing learning dispositions. Give children time to reflect on how and why they change their ideas or thinking.

6 Strategies For Getting To Know Your Students

6 Strategies For Getting To Know Your Students | Education | Scoop.it
“One of our primary goals at the beginning of the school year is to get to know our students.This is important for several reasons. First, the better we know our students, and the more they know we know them, the more invested they become in school. Also, a dynamic and vigorous learning environment is built on relationships. When we create strong connections with our students, we create a learning environment where risk-taking and collaborative learning can take place. Finally, the better we know our students, the better we can help craft learning experiences that match who they are. Knowing our students is fundamental to real differentiation.”

Growth Mindset: How to Normalize Mistake Making and Struggle in Class

Growth Mindset: How to Normalize Mistake Making and Struggle in Class | Education | Scoop.it
“Carol Dweck’s research on growth mindset has become essential knowledge in education circles. The Stanford psychologist found that children who understand that their brains are malleable and can change when working through challenging problems can do better in school. Now, many school districts are attempting to teach growth mindset to their students. At the core of this practice is the idea of “productive failure” (a concept Dr. Manu Kapur has been studying for over a decade)* and giving students the time and space to work through difficult problems. Another key idea is to praise the process and effort a child puts in, not the final product.”

Dr. Theresa Kauffman's curator insight, October 13, 9:19 AM
This is so important for teachers today. The students feel so much pressure that they cannot ease up and learn from their mistakes. We have to help them see that productive failure is how we build strength.

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area

25 Reading Strategies That Work In Every Content Area | Education | Scoop.it
“ Reading is reading. By understanding that letters make sounds, we can blend those sounds together to make whole sounds that symbolize meaning we can all exchange with one another. Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does. Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features. Social Studies content can be an interesting mix of itemized information, and traditional paragraphs/imagery. Literature? Well, that depends on if you mean the flexible form of poetry, the enduring structure of a novel, or emerging digital literature that combines multiple modalities to tell a story. (Inanimate Alice, for example.)”

Lost in translation – shattering neuromyths

Via Allan Shaw

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 27, 8:50 PM
Much information is transferred by teachers to other teachers via conversations across desks and over a cup of tea or coffee. In such circumstances it is reasonable to assume that accuracy, detail and nuance of research can be lost. It is not reasonable that such conversations are accepted and passed on rather than used as the basis for reading, checking and learning by those teachers involved. After all, we do wish to be regarded as professionals and thus need to act in such manner.
