Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That’s Transforming Education | Sir Ken Robinson | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

A revolutionary reappraisal of how to educate our children and young people by the New York Timesbestselling author of The Element and Finding Your Element.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"Robinson points the way forward... He argues for an end to our outmoded industrial educational system and proposes a highly personalized, organic approach that draws on today’s unprecedented technological and professional resources to engage all students, develop their love of learning, and enable them to face the real challenges of the twenty-first century." I recommend his book for all educational administrators.

Paper outlines how the role of teachers is changing amid broader shifts to personalized, blended, and deeper learning.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"The paper outlines how the role of teachers is changing amid broader shifts to personalized, blended, and deeper learning. In order for the current state of teacher preparation and development to evolve accordingly, the authors recommend professional learning opportunities that echo the type of personalized learning that is recommended for students:

 

- Some element of teacher control over time, place, path and/or pace;

 

- Balance between teacher-defined goals, goals as defined by administration through teacher evaluation efforts, and school and district educational goals;

 

- Job-embedded and meaningful integration into classroom practice;

 

- Competency-based progression."

 

This paper would be a key addition to your Individual Professional Development Plan (IPDP).

Techniques for Unleashing Student Work from Learning Management Systems | Mind/Shift | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Learning management systems, like Blackboard and Moodle, have helped educators manage assignments. However, the LMS can be an obstacle to letting students take their work with them while connecting to the greater world.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

21st Century teaching and learning is adopting, modifying the technology to fit with the student learning outcomes or learning expectations. Technology is only a tool to assist with the learning objectives. This would allow for greater creativity. There is no magic bullet or LMS. The innovation must come from the teaching and learning environments ability to access, adopt, modify and create innovative 21st Century learning experiences.
