How to design a 365 day project — Chasing Magic — Medium

How to design a 365 day project - Chasing Magic - Medium
From the trenches: I’m on day 300 of 365 days of learning how to draw
Kelly Christopherson's insight:

This is the type of project that allows people to push the boundaries of their own learning. It incorporates feedback, reflection, failure and continuous improvement in ways that help a person continue with their learning. A great example of how learning can allow a person to push themselves without the need for extrinsic rewards.

“I am a College Dropout” or Learning vs Being Taught | MattKremer.com | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
I went to three different colleges in a period of three years. The first was a technical college I attended while I was still in high school. It was there I learned about design patterns.

A Guide to Creating a Collaborative Learning Environment (EdSurge News)

A Guide to Creating a Collaborative Learning Environment (EdSurge News) | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
Over the past several years, I've posted many examples of collaborative learning in my history classrooms grades 8-10. The part that gets most students' and educators' attention is that I do not give tests. Ever. Lecture is also never a part of the student learning experience. I invariably get foll
Kelly Christopherson's insight:

This is a good example of what it can look like in a classroom once a teachers becomes familiar with using different strategies to engage students. The thing that I've learned when implementing collaborate learning is that it takes a while to become familiar with different strategies, you have to rethink planning and interaction and assessment is something that will evolve over time as you become more familiar and comfortable with this type of learning. It's not assigning group work but, instead, is a way of thinking about and working with students as they become the prime catalysts in their own learning as you help to direct the different learning activities within the classroom.

Last summer the folks at Canva were kind enough to create a great infographic for me based on a set of search tips that I sent to them. The infographic makes a great poster to display in your classroom, but it is a little light on the details of how and why to use some of the search strategies. The PDF embedded below provides more detail on the search strategies that I frequently share with teachers and students.
