Well used tools can benefit teaching and learning. A key here might be the autonomy students experience, which can lead to them being responsible for their learning.

Reviewing Your Pedagogy by Using Jessie Stommel’s #4wordpedagogy

Reviewing Your Pedagogy by Using Jessie Stommel’s #4wordpedagogy | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it
When Jessie Stommel tweeted "Start by trusting students. #4wordpedagogy" and invited others to join in making four-word pedagogy statements, he began an unexpected worldwide conversation.  More than 4,500 tweets followed, with humorous, provoking, and critical comments on education today.  The Twitter conversation Jessie started shows Twitter at its best, as a tool to begin honest…
NLafferty's insight:
With so much talk about the teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in the UK it seem that much of the focus is on data, retention and progression and less about how we improve the quality of teaching.  Struck by the simplicity of this hashtag and would like to see how we might try using it locally across our Schools to encourage us to think more about our pedagogies across different disciplines.  With my medical education hat on I wonder whether we could also start #4wordmededpedagogy or #4wordmededped which is a bit shorter.

Maker Education and Social-Emotional Development - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein #makered

Maker Education and Social-Emotional Development - User Generated Education @JackieGerstein #makered | eLearning, Medical Education and Other Snippets | Scoop.it

"Maker education, when planned around skills acquisition, can enhance social-emotional development.

Self-Awareness: Making in all its forms requires a full range of skills including cognitive, physical, and affective skills. Given this need for multiple and diverse skill set, effective and successful making comes from an accurate assessment of one’s strengths and limitations as well as having optimism and confidence that challenges can be overcome within the making process. Example questions related to self-awareness and making include:

     * What strategies am I using to increase my awareness of my emotions and how they influence my performance during the making-related tasks?

     * What are my strengths given this particular making task?

     * What are my limitations and how can I use my strengths to overcome them? ..."


Via John Evans
NLafferty's insight:
This this post includes an infographic which summarises areas where students can gain self-awareness when involved in maker projects in the classroom. While the piece focuses on maker education in the school classroom it's also applicable to higher education. The areas of social-emotional development highlighted here resonate with the ones we've seen students identify in their reflective blogs when we run our Doctor as Digital Teacher SSC where they design and develop a digital learning resource.

Interesting piece raising the challenge of how we move beyond Articulate packages to more active learning in medical education.  The example here is in the context of radiology and how the learning can be designed to be more social and link students to learning networks that exist like #FOAMed which is a good example of connectivism.
