GREAT article.  Miles is spot on.  If you can empathize with learners (yes......they want to be DOING sometihing) then it is easy to figure out that we don't have to dance faster, but instead we need to develop our classroom and teaching so that it is student centered and not teacher centered.  My recommendation is to check out Visible Thinking, project based learning, problem based learning, flipping the classroom.  "Sit and Gets"  make the kids want to chew their arms off!

Really? It’s My Job To Teach Technology?

Really? It’s My Job To Teach Technology? | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

First off, I like that Andrew calls technology a skill as that is a mindset that needs to change. Most teachers don’t see teaching technology as a skill but rather a “program”. If we view technology as a skill, then we can look at the skill students are learning through the use of technology. Let’s take a look at Blooom’s Taxonomy of Higher Order Thinking Skills.

Teaching technology is much like teaching creativity and deep thinking- the content is only a vehicle.  Tech should be woven into everything we do because the kids weave it into everything THEY do.

Teaching Creativity in Any Content Area: Visible Thinking

Teaching Creativity in Any Content Area:  Visible Thinking | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The Creativity Module helps students develop their capacity to think creatively and to see the creativity embedded in things and ideas around them. Challenges of creativity are everywhere in daily life--wherever it is important to think of new ways of doing things, to look at things through new eyes, to go beyond conventional ways of thinking, to stretch beyond the obvious. Challenges of creativity also arise in all areas of the curriculum, from thinking creatively about how to solve problems in math to looking for innovative ways to test a hypothesis in science, from finding an innovative topic for an essay to exploring alternative perspectives in history, from appreciating the creativity in historical figures' choices and actions to seeing the hidden inventiveness in the design of everyday objects.

 

Specifically, the Creativity Module aims to:

Increase students' awareness of the opportunities to think creatively and to see the creativity around them. Help students recognize taken-for-granted situations and make them better by reframing them as problems or puzzles that invite fixing. Teach students to notice how things and ideas are put together and to think creatively about how they could be put together differently. Help students to be sensitive to opportunities to think outside of the box, to stretch beyond the obvious, to look at situations in new ways. Encourage students to think of themselves as creative agents who can choose to transform the world around them.

 

 

I have jumped on the Visible Thinking train and am using the Understanding Ideas routines in my PL with adults.  I am LOVING it and it is changing how I teach (and learn)
