Promoting Student Engagement: Exhibition of Transformative Work

Promoting Student Engagement: Exhibition of Transformative Work | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Transformative learning engages students in rigorous work that makes a difference. Students master the content and skills of the curriculum while making a positive impact on their local, state, national, and/or global community. Students are more likely to fully commit themselves to their work because transformative learning generates a sense of ownership by appealing to students’ desire for significance. Students use digital tools to improve and amplify the impact of their work.

Arts have value in education.  Finding "islands of competency" to engage | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Harvard psychologist Robert Brooks stresses our need to identify struggling students' "Islands of Competence" to develop their resilience, motivation and self-confidence and help address their weaknesses. For children experiencing disabilities, frustration, poor attendance and/or disinterest in school, broadening and integrating school-related competencies thus seems necessary.

Have Students Create Their End-of-Year Legacy Now

Have Students Create Their End-of-Year Legacy Now | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Ask your students to imagine themselves at an assembly in June. All of their classmates, teachers, staff, even parents are there.

What would happen if you asked students to "create their end-of-the-year legacy" the first week of school, and you had them review the legacy at the end of each grading period?

This post explores these questions, and discusses the writing component as "one of the most poerful and efficient social-emotional and character deveopment interventions you can do for grades 5-12." The post discusses concepts that will need to be taught as well as questions you may want to use for discussion.

Vary the ways you present information/how students learn, vary the ways they can express themselves, and provide meaningful ways to engage students in their learning.

Learning Beyond Walls- What to put in a Wiki

Learning Beyond Walls- What to put in a Wiki | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

So what do you put in a wiki?

A wiki is like a class website, but easier to design. Wikis are free for educators and are advertisement free if you sign-up at Wikispaces for Educators or PBWorks for Educators. Both of these sites provide you with a variety of tools to embed (insert on your wiki page) to help students collaborate and build a language learning community full of resources. Below are some ideas to consider:

Have a translation button to help students and parents understand the websiteUse video tutorials like the one below to help students and parents navigate the wiki

Materials From the Learning-Achievement Coalition-Oakland County: Best Practices - 2011-2012 Conference

Materials From the Learning-Achievement Coalition-Oakland County:  Best Practices - 2011-2012 Conference | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

 

The Learning Achievement Coalition – Oakland (LAC-O) is a collaboration between the twenty-eight school districts in Oakland County Michigan, Oakland Schools (Intermediate School District), Oakland University, and the University of Michigan dedicated to improving achievement for all students, especially students of color, students from poverty and non-traditional learners. Together we seek to provide access to high quality curriculum, effective instruction and engaging learning environments for all students.

 

The Sixth Annual Best Practice Conference on January 27, 2012 at Baker College was a success. Educators across Oakland County shared a sampling of their "best practices". As we continue to focus on deep implementation of effective learning practices we had excellent examples of these from across the county. We thank you and your team that came to learn with other peers in a day that celebrated our learning while helping all of us continue to grow together to benefit our students.
