I use this often in my math classroom now.  The most difficult task is to make sure that students understand the meaning behind it!

Amy Keathley's curator insight, February 16, 9:41 PM

This is definitely the direction we need to go - many students have such a hard time connect the math they learn in class to the real world and this is a step in the right direction!

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps | Education Greece | Scoop.it

"Killing a learner’s natural curiosity doesn’t happen overnight. It can take as long as 12 years, and in some rare cases even that isn’t long enough.

Learning environments focused on standards, assessment, and compliance allow for the implementation of research-based strategies in pursuit of streams of data to prove that learning is happening. Curiosity is nice, but it’s a monumental challenge to measure."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 26, 9:12 PM

As we work with our students are we "killing a learner's natural curiosity" based on what happens in our classroom? This post looks at 12 ways we may be "killing curiosity" in our classrooms, often based on what we are being told to do with our students.
Each of these ideas in explored more fully in the text that follows the image that lists the 12 ways.

As you read through this think about what you might shift, to allow your students to be more curious.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 4, 8:34 PM

Do you use iPads in your school? Do you work with Bloom's Taxonomy and/or SAMR? Are you interested in seeing how you might combine Bloom's and SAMR using specific apps? If so, click through to this post.

The post takes apps and organizes in three categories:

* Consumption - which includes Knowledge and Analysis (split into Activity and Gamification)

* Collaboration - which includes Application and Synthesis (split into Assessment and Cloud Storage)

* Creation - which includes Comprehension and Evaluate (split into Multimedia & Design and Multimedia Texts)

Then read on and see how you might take these same areas and apply them to SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition).

This is worth a look even if you do not have iPads. The ideas of placing work into the three Cs of Consumption, Collaboration and Creation may be applied to work that students do, with or without technology.

34 Diverse Blended Learning Apps For iPad - TeachThought | Education Greece | Scoop.it

"Blended learning is a potentially powerful way of mixing the power of asynchronous access with face-to-face facilitation and instruction.

It’s this mixing of old and new that makes it tempting for many schools and districts wanting to dip their toes in the water of eLearning and far-reaching technology access while still depending on the expertise and training of human teachers."

1ος Διαγωνισμός Λογικής LogiGame | Education Greece | Scoop.it

Η Μαθηματική Λογική είναι ο τρόπος με τον οποίο μια αξιωματική θεωρία δομεί ένα σύστημα προτάσεων και θεωρημάτων. Η καλλιέργεια της Λογικής από τους μαθητές, τους βοηθάει στο να μπορούν να οργανώνουν την σκέψη τους και να δομούν την θέση τους με συνέπεια ως προς τις παραδοχές τους.

Για να αναδείξουμε την σημαντικότητα της Λογικής με διασκεδαστικό τρόπο αποφασίσαμε να διοργανώσουμε ένα «Διαγωνισμό Λογικής». Το παιχνίδι θα περιλαμβάνει προβλήματα γρίφων, αφηρημένων συλλογισμών, λεκτικών συλλογισμών και αριθμητικών συλλογισμών. Τα προβλήματα γρίφων έχουν ως σκοπό να αναδείξουν την ικανότητα των μαθητών να σκέφτονται δημιουργικά, να κατανοούν και να κάνουν λογική χρήση εννοιών πλαισιωμένες από λέξεις. Τα προβλήματα αφηρημένης, λεκτικής και αριθμητικής λογικής έχουν ως σκοπό να αναδείξουν την δυνατότητα ανάπτυξης συλλογισμών των μαθητών αποφορτισμένοι από κοινωνικές ιδέες και αντιλήψεις.

Theophilus's curator insight, March 19, 4:03 AM

What I like about this idea is the centrality of learning as opposed to the centrality of the device. We've discovered that sharing a device have far-reaching and positive possibilities for networking, interaction, teamwork and collaboration in the formal learning environment. OLPC is an example of a notion that goes the other way - individualism, not to mention, the complexities when trying to enable young learners to focus.

Are iPads and tablets bad for young children? | Education Greece | Scoop.it

Flewitt thinks that to deny children access to tablets is to "risk having one section of society that is growing up with skills and one section that is growing up without. You might think that it doesn't matter because they will develop those skills later. But it's not the same. They won't identify with it. It's not part of who they are … Children have been born into a world where these things exist," she says, "like we were born into a world where there were televisions, cars on the streets and packaging on food."

What are the three areas?

* What is personalized learning

* How to personalize learning

* Examples of personalized learning

In each of these areas she also looks at the How, What, When, Where, and Why, providing key words or phrases that help you dig a little deeper into the subject.

Mia MacMeekin has provided an infographic that you could share with others in your building. Today we are asked to personalize curriculum, but support is not always available. This visual will help you better understand some key concepts, and provide you with ideas on how you might move forward.

A great find from Larry Ferlazzo but what are the other five? A bit of research led me to a presentation by Rick Wormeli "Fair isn't always Equal: Assessment and Grading an a Differentiated Classroom" and sure enough the other five were located in the presentation. The are listed below:

* Assessing students in ways that do not accurately indicate students’ mastery (student responses are hindered by the assessment format)

* Grading on a curve

* Allowing Extra Credit

* Defining supposedly criterion-based grades in terms of norm-referenced descriptions (“above average,” “average”, etc.)

* Recording zeroes on the 100.0 scale for work not done
