4 Stages Of Curiosity & 20 Indicators That Reveal Them

 

That’s probably because there is no single source for it any more than there is a single source for entertainment, anxiety, or confidence. There are strategies to promote curiosity in the classroom—even those that consider how the brain works. Ideally, teaching and learning wouldn’t benefit from having curiosity “added in,” but rather would fail completely without it.

Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | educational technology | Scoop.it

It is a myth that we operate under a set of oppressive bureaucratic constraints. In reality, teachers have a great deal of autonomy in the work they chose to do in their classrooms. In most cases it is our culture that provides the constraints. For individual teachers, trying out new practices and pedagogy is risky business and both our culture, and our reliance on hierarchy, provide the ideal barriers for change not to occur.

Chrome Assistive Technology Toolbox | educational technology | Scoop.it

"As educators we believe that students with vision, hearing, physical, communication, and learning challenges have the same potential to learn as anyone else if the "mechanical" impediments to participation in the classroom are removed or lessened...We have attempted to collect many of the available apps and extensions which we believe could foster alternative forms of access for real learning to occur, with the ultimate hope of extending the definition as to who can be a learner in any particular setting."

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | educational technology | Scoop.it

"Educational psychology has focused on the concepts of learned helplessness and more currently growth-fixed mindsets as a way to explain how and why students give up in the classroom setting.  These ideas can also be applied to educators in this day of forced standardization, testing, scripted curriculum, and school initiatives."

Jaimee's curator insight, March 5, 2014 10:11 AM

Teachers not just family members can be a part of a students mindset. How they think and what challenges to make can also be in response to how teachers are teaching them.  

 

This article explains in a way how helplessness can be a part of someone not being successful. It explains the initiative that someone must take to be successful in school.  

Xander Norris's curator insight, March 6, 2014 11:13 AM

This article is talking about how educators are moving from a fixed mindset to a growth mindset, and this has to do with the changes of the curriculum, and forced standardization. This is talking about how success is based on learning, and why some students give up on it.

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

Digital Reading Skills | Delta Publishing - English Language Teaching | educational technology | Scoop.it

We take it for granted as English language teachers that we need to develop our students’ reading skills, but in most cases the nearest our students get to reading online is a printed version of a web page pre selected by their teacher. At best they may actually get to see a pre selected page on the screen of a computer, but is this enough to really develop their digital literacies?

Literably Is An Excellent Reading Site — If Used With Caution | Larry Ferlazzo’s Websites of the Day… | educational technology | Scoop.it

Literably "allows students to read a text and have it automatically assessed for accuracy and words-per-minute speed. Plus, and this is what was most surprising to me, it also provides a fairly accurate indentification of student errors — in other words, what word they said instead of the word in the text. You’re able to provide the student or parent a link to the recording. And it’s free."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 6, 2013 10:21 PM

Thanks for Larry Ferlazzo for sharing this website that allows teachers to choose reading and levels for students to read and saves their reading so you can come back and access it via a dashboard. You will need to register and set-up your student list.

Ferlazzo also discusses the cons of this. There is value in having one-on-one time with students when they read so you determine if they are "racing through words" or having other issues that may not be apparent through a recording.

None the less this may be a great tool for some of your students. Students do have the option of re-recording.

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | educational technology | Scoop.it

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance. This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.
