User-Generated Learning: A Must-Do for School Leaders Today

User-Generated Learning: A Must-Do for School Leaders Today | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
School leaders must move beyond passive PD & take charge of their professional growth. A new book on user-generated learning can help, says principal Lyn Hilt.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

A must read.  Today's learners take charge of their professional growth via:  

 

learning acquired through active curation, reflection, and contribution to a self-selected collaborative space

 

A book to assist individual's with a self-made plan is:  http://www.eyeoneducation.com/bookstore/productdetails.cfm?sku=7228-4

 

I've learned more, in this manner, than ever since leaving grad school.

How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context

How Games Lead Kids to the Good Stuff: Understanding Context | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
With game-based learning students learn how to solve the problems in context. They understand how the equations they are solving fit into the world. The question, “Why do I need to know this?” is rendered obsolete. It is more than just subject matter, more than just content. There’s context. Students understand how integer partitions work within a system.
Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

What video games do — better than any other medium is let people understand a world from the inside.

Team Based Learning

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:
Team-Based Learning (TBL) is an increasingly-popular form of small group learning.The four components of TBL are permanent teams, readiness assurance, application activities, and peer evaluation.TBL is possible even in large theater-style classrooms with fixed seats.TBL teachers report high levels of student attendance, preparation, participation and critical thinking.TBL students report being more motivated and enjoying class more, even when the subject is not in their major.For more information about TBL at UT Austin, contact Michael Sweet at
