Daphne Koller: What we're learning from online education

"Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn. Each keystroke, comprehension quiz, peer-to-peer forum discussion and self-graded assignment builds an unprecedented pool of data on how knowledge is processed and, most importantly, absorbed."

Will Richardson iste-presentation

19 bold (not old) ideas for change

At ISTE 2012, Will Richardson did an ignite session (five minutes / 20 slides) where he shared 20 bold ideas for change. The presentation was powerful and fast. These are his thoughts:

 

1. Forget open book / phone tests.
Let’s have open network assessments where students can use the tools they own and love for learning. School should not be a place where we force kids to unplug and disconnect from the world.
2. Stop wasting money on textbooks.
Make your own texts with things like wikis.
3. Google yourself
If we’re not empowering ourselves and our students to be Google well, we’re not doing a good job.
4. Flip the power structure from adults to learners
Empower students with the tools and resources they need to go where they want to go and explore and develop their interests and passions.
5. Don’t do work for the classroom
Support learners in doing work that is worthy of, can exist in, and can change the world.
6. Stop telling kids to do their own work
That’s not reality any longer. Support them in collaborating, interacting, and cooperating with others.
7. Learn first. Teach second.
We must come into our classrooms knowing that we are learners first. If we think we are teachers first, we are not giving our students the powerful learning models they’ll need to be successful.
8. No more how-to workshops
Educators should know how to find out how to on their own. When we come together it should be to talk about how we are doing.
9. Share everything
The best work of you and your students should be shared online. This will help us all get better.
10. Ask questions you don’t know the answer to
The learning of high stakes tests with predetermined answers is not as powerful as the learning that comes from finding our own new and unique answers.
11. Believe that you want to be found by strangers on the internet
If you think kids aren’t going to interact with strangers on the internet, you’re wrong. Let’s embrace that and support kids in being smart when doing so and learning a lot about the minds they are meeting.
12. Rethink the role of the teacher
We should not be doing the same work that 20th century teachers did. Consider how technology can and should change our roles.
13. Toss the resume
No one cares about your resume anymore. The internet is the new resume. What will people find when they look at who you are online? That is what you should be focusing on.
14. Go beyond Google to learn
Build your personal learning network and learn with and from the people you know via places like Twitter and Facebook.
15. Go free and open source
We have a budget crises, yet schools are wasting millions on things that are offered for free.
16. Create an UnCommon Core
Don’t ask how you will meet the common core, empower kids to think about how they will change the world.
17. Stop delivering the curriculum
This is no longer necessary. Information can be accessed without a teacher. Move beyond delivery to discovery.
18. Be subversive
When Lisa (was he talking about me?) is told to do a standardized test, stand up and say NO! We have to be disruptive and push back.
19. Stand up and scream
Tell everyone that education is not about publishers and politicians but rather it’s about what students and parents want and how teachers can best give that to them.

How Can We Make Assessments Meaningful? | Edutopia

How Can We Make Assessments Meaningful? | Edutopia | eLearning CR2 | Scoop.it

By Heather Wolpert

Summary by MiddleWeb SmartBrief

 

"When considering whether classroom assessments have value, middle-school teacher Heather Wolpert-Gawron writes that she first asks herself whether the assessment has value to the students who are taking it. She then considers whether the assessment allows for project-based learning, critical thinking and student autonomy. Wolpert-Gawron recommends assessing students in some way every day and always considering the four Cs: creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication."

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher | eLearning CR2 | Scoop.it

Teaching in the 21st century is definitely not an easy task. Students are digitally focused and have more free access to information challenging thus the traditional prototypic picture of the teacher as the knowledge instigator. Engagement is also another serious issue that makes educating such kind of students a real nightmare. It takes so much creativity, originality, and novelty from the part of teachers to get students motivated and engaged.

Strategies for online reading comprehension

Strategies for online reading comprehension | eLearning CR2 | Scoop.it

Imagine, if you will, that you are beside me as I peer over the shoulder of my twelve-year-old son. He’s using a web browser to search for an article on creating stop-motion movies, which is one of his hobbies. I barely have time to say, “That looks interesting,” before he has clicked on a hyperlink and is off on entirely different page. A video catches his eye and he ignores me completely as he hits the “play” button, only to discover the video is a commercial for an upcoming movie. I want to say something, but I don’t have time. The mouse works its magic, and he is off again, this time in full reverse, clicking on arrows that direct him back to the original page. I keep silent now, watching him scan the article for the headlines in bold. Then he is following yet another link to yet another page.


And so it goes.

Free Technology for Teachers: A New Tool for Choosing a Creative Commons License

Free Technology for Teachers: A New Tool for Choosing a Creative Commons License | eLearning CR2 | Scoop.it

Creative Commons licensing can be a good way to explicitly state the terms by which people can use and re-use your creative written, audio, and visual works. But selecting the license that is right for you can be confusing. Thankfully, as I learned through a Tweet by Jen Deyenberg, the Creative Commons organization has a new tool to help you choose the best license for your situation.
