Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, November 12, 2013 9:47 PM

"... according to Wiggins and McTighe, essential questions actually have one or more of the following meanings:

 

 

 

Essential questions are “important questions that recur throughout all our lives.”  They are “broad in scope and timeless by nature.”  

 

 

 

Essential questions  refer to “core ideas and inquiries within a discipline.”  They “point to the core of big ideas in a subject and to the frontiers of technical knowledge.  They are historically important and alive in the field.”  

 

 

 

Essential questions help “students effectively inquire and make sense of important but complicated ideas, knowledge, and know-how — a bridge to findings that experts may believe are settled but learners do not yet grasp or see as valuable.”  

 

 

 

Essential questions “will most engage a specific and diverse set of learners.”  They “hook and hold the attention of your students.” (108-109)"

A great image that describes the phases needed to have successful project based technological learning within the new age classroom of today.

Creating a Course: "Understanding by Design"

Creating a Course: "Understanding by Design" | Education | Scoop.it
“A synthesis of cognitive research endorses the idea that deep understanding of subject matter transforms factual information into usable knowledge. Knowledge learned at the level of rote memory rarely transfers; transfer most likely occurs when the learner knows and understands underlying concepts and principles that can be applied to problems in new contexts. Learning with understanding is more likely to promote transfer and application than simply memorizing information from a text or lecture.”"This post will outline how to design a course or unit in any subject using research-based tools that have come out of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)."

The 3 Components of 21st Century Learning

The 3 Components of 21st Century Learning | Education | Scoop.it
Foundational knowledge is associated with the verb to know and is about content across different disciplines. In other sense, to know means to internalize and be familiar with the insights of the content area under study. Meta knowledge is knowledge about knowledge. It is learning to learn, a way to think critically about the knowledge you internalize and act upon it. Humanistic knowledge, on the other hand, is a step higher. It is value-laden and requires both inter and intra personal judgement.
