5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn | MindShift

5 Tools to Help Students Learn How to Learn | MindShift | educational technology et | Scoop.it

"Helping students learn how to learn: That's what most educators strive for, and that's the goal of inquiry learning. That skill transfers to other academic subject areas and even to the workplace where employers have consistently said that they want creative, innovative and adaptive thinkers. Inquiry learning is an integrated approach that includes kinds of learning: content, literacy, information literacy, learning how to learn, and social or collaborative skills. Students think about the choices they make throughout the process and the way they feel as they learn. Those observations are as important as the content they learn or the projects they create."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 20, 2013 9:09 PM

If we want to teach students to learn how to learn what tools would help them out? Using the concept of inquiry learning this post recommends the following tools to help the students guide their inquiry learning process.

* An Inquiry Community is the class itself.

* An Inquiry Circle is a small group where students can talk to one another...

* The Inquiry Journal

* The Inquiry Log helps students to keep track of the learning journey

* The Inquiry Chart is a great tool to help students identify a central question.

Additional information on these five processes is available in the post.

Why Feedback Should Come in the Middle, Not at the End

Why Feedback Should Come in the Middle, Not at the End | educational technology et | Scoop.it

Traditionally, we give and receive feedback at the end of projects, assignments, and units. But is this the best way to ensure progress? Researchers are saying it’s not, especially when it comes to encouraging creativity. For optimal academic achievement, teachers and students should consider placing feedback somewhere in the middle.

Muy bueno!!!!

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, June 7, 2015 5:56 PM

Preparing our students with the necessary skills for post-secondary career and college is critical, but especially for our poverty students.  Too often, school is the only venue to provide these thinking, collaboration, and problem solving skills. However, many poverty schools under the pressure of standardized testing are stuck in a remediation routine of filling gaps in content, reading, and math.  We must provide time for teachers to collaborate and plan integrated lessons that integrate these higher level thinking skills into their content areas. 

Katie Catania's curator insight, August 5, 2015 9:10 AM

What skills do learners need today to be prepared to be a leader as they move through school and into careers? Google commissioned a study and this post provides a short video that discusses key findings as well as a link to the final report, Driving the Skills Agenda: Preparing Students for the Future.

The Executive Summary provides a number of key findings, including the ones listed below. (The text below is quoted from the report.)

* Problem solving, team working and communication are the skills that are currently most in demand in the workplace.

* Education systems are not providing enough of the skills that students and the workplace need.

* Some students are taking it into their own hands to make up for deficiencies within the education system.

* Technology is changing teaching, but education systems are keeping up with the transformation rather than leading it.

The full report provides additional information, including a number of visuals as well as case studies. As educators it is important that we consider the skills our learners will need in the future, and this report provides insight into some of what will be needed.

Books often provide inspiration. This book list provides 50 books listed in five categories:

* Inspiration

* Leadership

* Educational Psychology

* Learning Culture

* Practice

A short description of each book is provided as well as a link to Amazon (at least for the books I checked). And think of this as a list of 50 great books. The post states "Number one is just as great a resource as number fifty."

If you are thinking ahead to some great summer reading that will impact your classroom next year this would be a great place to start.
