Getting Started with Project-Based Learning (Hint: Don't Go Crazy) | Edutopia | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it

By Andrew Miller

Summary by ASCD SmartBrief

 

"The most important thing to remember when you're new to project-based learning, online educator Andrew Miller writes, is "don't go crazy." Start small, focus on a few standards, set reasonable goals and limit your project to no more than two to three weeks, he writes in this blog post. Miller offers this plus additional tips for creating a successful first PBL project. "

6 Ways For Leaders To Make Their Messages Resonate

6 Ways For Leaders To Make Their Messages Resonate | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
When you're truly invested in your message, you don't have to shout.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 4, 2015 9:41 AM

(From the article): To increase your chances of resonating, ask, "Is this the appropriate time to deliver this idea? Is there anything already being discussed that I can connect my own idea to in order to give it context?"


Your voice is your single greatest possession as a leader. It's what allows you to mobilize and direct your team, and ultimately it's how you build a body of work you can be proud of. If your work matters to you, make the effort to cultivate a voice that resonates, and you’ll find your influence multiplying in ways you never expected.

Katherine Bryant's curator insight, September 14, 2015 2:19 PM

Great summary here of how to truly communicate with your team. My favourite is the advice to "Be empathetic" : 

Decide to choose empathy over easier, short-cut optionsIdentify a time when you’ve experienced a similar eventRecall how that event affected you and relive the emotionsThen act based upon your newfound understanding

Taking a few moments before communicating an idea to walk through these four steps will help you connect more deeply with your team.

Joseph Palumbo, MBA,'s curator insight, September 14, 2015 8:56 PM

When School Leaders Empower Teachers, Better Ideas Emerge - Mind/Shift

When School Leaders Empower Teachers, Better Ideas Emerge - Mind/Shift | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
Teachers are increasingly being pushed into new roles as their ability to connect online opens up new opportunities. Educators are finding their own professional development, sharing lesson plans and teaching tips with colleagues around the world, and have often become ambassadors to the public on new approaches to teaching and learning. Easy access to information has empowered many educators to think and teach differently, but often those innovations remain isolated inside classrooms. Without a school leader who trusts his or her teachers, it is difficult to convert pockets of innovation into a school culture of empowered teachers.

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment

Change Management Requires Leadership Clarity and Alignment | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
Change management is in full-force across all industries, yet many leaders are unprepared to act upon and operationalize the requirements for change to avoid business disruption. For many organizations, preparedness begins at the top and this means that leadership – across all levels – must have absolute clarity in purpose and focus; there also must be alignment in strategic philosophy and resolution goals.

Unfortunately, many organizations are slow to change as the internal politics makes it difficult to reach consensus across all levels of leadership – even when the necessity for change is urgent. This is why many companies unknowingly lose momentum as they fail to change fast enough -- allowing the marketplace and competitors to pass them by. The result: valuable time is misspent, resources applied and money invested without the required outcomes to stay competitive, keep clients satisfied and employees engaged.

Where the Magic Happens: library maker programs | The Maker Issue

Where the Magic Happens: library maker programs | The Maker Issue | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
The maker zeitgeist has evolved far beyond the day when an educator might set objects—say, a box of robotic LEGOs—in a library corner and call it a “maker lab.” Educators are now focusing on how the maker movement can be truly meaningful: it’s not about where making is happening, but about how creating, experimenting, and collaborating impact education. In addition, some high schoolers tinkering their free periods away can discover a passion—sometimes leading to a future educational focus or even scholarship money.

 

“The maker movement…encourages a growth mind-set, which tolerates risk and failure and maybe even encourages it,” says Laura Fleming, library media specialist with the New Milford (NJ) High School. “It has been the great equalizer within, and in some ways against, our modern education system by allowing opportunities for creativity and innovation to take place through informal learning.”

Lorsque les élèves éprouvent de grandes difficultés à l'école, il est primordial de leur enseigner à développer un esprit de croissance personnelle axé sur les efforts et les défis personnels. Le concept de growth mindset est vraiment intéressant pour illustrer aux enfants que l'intelligence et le succès n'est pas fixe mais relié aux efforts aux tentatives et aux réajustements. Voir Carole DWECK l'auteure de ce concept.

The Power Of I Don’t Know - TeachThought

The Power Of I Don’t Know - TeachThought | Educational Nuggets | Scoop.it
A driving strategy that serves students–whether pursuing self-knowledge or academic content–is questioning. Questioning is useful as an assessment strategy, catalyst for inquiry, or “getting unstuck” tool. It can drive entire unit of instruction as an essential question. In other words, questions transcend content, floating somewhere between the students and their context.

Questions are more important than the answers they seem designed to elicit. The answer is residual–requires the student to package their content to please the question-maker, which moves the center of gravity from the student’s belly to the educator’s marking pen. In that light, I was interested when I found the visual above.

It’s okay to say “I don’t know.” Teach your students how to develop questions (because) it helps conquer their own confusion.

Rebeca Zuniga was inspired to create the above visual by the wonderful Heather Wolpert-Gawron (from the equally wonderful edutopia, and also her own site, tweenteacher). The whole graphic is wonderful, but it’s that I don’t know that really resonated with me. Traditionally, this phrase is seen as a hole rather than a hill. I don’t know means I’m missing information that I’m supposed to have.
