Scaffolding for Deep Understanding

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

That learning takes place in a social context is a significant issue. This is why collaboration or ‘cooperative learning’ has become so popular – but it has to be more than social collaboration. Cognitive collaboration needs to be encouraged. As students communicate their ideas, they learn to clarify, refine, and consolidate their thinking. Schoenfeld has said that, ‘Groups are not just a convenient way to accumulate the individual knowledge of their members. They give rise synergistically to insights and solutions that would not come about without them.’

Teaching & Learning - Brain-Based Online Learning Design - Magna Publications | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Abreena Tompkins, instruction specialist at Surry Community College, has developed a brain-based online course design model based on a meta-analysis of more than 300 articles. In this study, she distilled the following elements of brain-based course design:

- Low-risk, nonthreatening learning environment

- Challenging, real-life, authentic assessments

- Rhythms, patterns, and cycles

- Appropriate chunking or grouping

- Learning as orchestration rather than lecture or facilitation

- Appropriate level of novelty

- Appropriately timed breaks and learning periods

- Purposeful assessments

- Learning that addresses visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learners

- Active processing with mental models

- The use of universal examples, analogies, and parallel processing

The Value of Mistakes: Should It Matter How Long A Student Takes To Learn? | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

As James Joyce suggests in Ulysses, a true genius sees all learning as an opportunity to improve and discover. Errors are taken at will. In making mistakes, we can reach new heights and finds our true genius.

 

While one person hesitates because he feels inferior, the other is busy making mistakes and becoming superior.

In This Flipped Class, Teachers Learn From Students' Video -- THE Journal

In This Flipped Class, Teachers Learn From Students' Video -- THE Journal | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

By Kim Fortson

Summary by SmartBrief on EdTech

 

"A middle-school teacher in Amherst, N.Y., has adopted the flipped instructional method -- with a twist. Rather than creating instructional videos for his students, Rob Zdrojewski has his students use screencasting technology to create instructional videos for teachers. In the videos, which serve as professional development for teachers, students offer instruction on technology, such as using Gmail and Google Drive. Each video is 90 seconds or less."

Still MORE on Flipping the Faculty Meeting - The Tempered Radical

Still MORE on Flipping the Faculty Meeting - The Tempered Radical | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Back in early July, I wrote two posts (see here and here) suggesting that if school principals REALLY wanted to see teachers flipping their classrooms, that they should consider flipping their faculty meetings.

 

My reasoning was simple: Teachers won't be convinced that flipping the classroom carries benefits FOR learners until they experience those benefits first-hand AS learners.

Flipping for Administrators: How do you support your teachers as they start to flip? | Flipped Learning | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Recently I was in Los Angeles speaking about the flipped classroom with educators and one of the participants, a middle school principal, came up afterwards to ask me how he could support his staff as they began utilizing elements of flipped learning. I rattled off a list of things off the top of my head and since then I have been thinking more deeply about how administrators should support flipped learning. Another driver for this is that I will be speaking this week to a group of administrators about the topic and I thought it would be good to write down my thoughts as I prepare for this session.

Inverting, flipping, reversing, etc. the classroom | You're the Teacher

Inverting, flipping, reversing, etc. the classroom | You're the Teacher | Active learning in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Somehow I missed all the hype about the “flipped” or “inverted” or “reversed” or “backwards” classroom over the past year or two. Just saw an excellent post on some Twitter feed or other (can’t remember which) that brought the whole idea to my attention–discussed below. At first I thought it meant inverting the classroom in the sense of the teacher no longer being the main expert, or the content-deliverer, but the students taking a more active role. Ummm…no. It’s more than that.

 

"If video lectures drive the instruction, it is just a repackaging of a more traditional model of didactic learning. It is not a new paradigm nor pedagogy of learning."
