The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | Faculty Focus

The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | Faculty Focus | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Self-regulated learning is like your own little secret. It stirs from within you, and is the voice in your head that asks you questions about your learning.

More formally, self-regulated learning is the conscious planning, monitoring, evaluation, and ultimately control of one’s learning in order to maximize it. It’s an ordered process that experts and seasoned learners like us practice automatically. It means being mindful, intentional, reflective, introspective, self-aware, self-controlled, and self-disciplined about learning, and it leads to becoming self-directed.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This teaching approach can be included within both inquiry and problem-based learning strategies which can be blended in your 21 st century teaching and learning environments.

Diagnostic Teaching: Pinpointing Why Your Students Struggle

 

From their grasp of content and literacy skills, to their engagement level, to behavior and organizational issues, to teacher actions, to the proverbial “stuff going on at home,” the possibilities are maddeningly endless. The following 8-step process is a valuable tool for me as a teacher, so I thought I’d share a version of it here in hopes that it might help you. It was useful not only for me to see what strategic responses I had available to me as a teacher, but it was also useful for students to come to know what to expect.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This diagnostic teaching technique can be modified to fit within your teaching and learning environments.

Letter Grades Deserve an 'F' | The Atlantic

Letter Grades Deserve an 'F'  | The Atlantic | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
The adoption of the Common Core could usher in a new era of standards-based grading.

 

Worse, points-based grading undermines learning and creativity,rewards cheating, damages students' peer relationships and trust in their teachers, encourages students to avoid challenging work, and teaches students to value grades over knowledge.


Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"Standards-based grading establishes one high standard—mastery—for all students. Students who move often, such as kids in poverty, the military, or the foster care system, benefit the most from a standards-based system of evaluation because it would quickly and clearly communicate their competence in a given subject based on a common set of standards."

 

Hopefully, Standards- based assessment and competency-based learning will move educational assessment into the 21st century teaching and learning environments.

There is a lot to think about here. An interesting and thought-provoking article, which should lead to a change in assessment practice.

James J. Goldsmith's curator insight, March 18, 2014 11:15 AM

From the article:  "Teachers are trapped in a Catch-22. We are asked to assess our students precisely (many grading programs track scores to the hundredths place) and with the appearance of objectivity while using an inherently subjective process. Teachers are then asked to present their calculations on official documents and defend those numbers at parent-teacher conferences as if they are objective measures of student learning. For all the effort, time, and best intentions teachers invest in those reams of grade reports, we are lying to ourselves and to our students’ parents, cheating our students out of clear and accurate feedback on their academic process, and contributing to the greater illusion that grades are an accurate reflection of skill mastery."  Explores an important issue with well-written, thoughtful prose.

Making Games: The Ultimate Project-Based Learning | Mind/Shift

Making Games: The Ultimate Project-Based Learning | Mind/Shift | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Game making is one way to create a space where students are empowered to freely experiment with their own way of framing ideas and choosing perspectives. In this way, game making is tantamount to project-based learning.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"I’ve written a lot about metacognition in this series, emphasizing the importance of teaching kids to think about their own thinking. With game design students take metacognition to the next level, learning that ideas are constructed. They understand that knowledge is always framed from a particular perspective, with a particular kind of intention. The benefits of this kind of reflexive consideration are intellectual, social, and emotional."

 

I use metacognitive learning strategies within each and every class. I have found that in addition to teaching business English, I am also teaching my young Thai ESL  adult learners how to learn, think and reflect.

Word-processing for students has long been the domain of Microsoft Word. The recent release of add-ons is making Google Docs an appealing free option. The five add-ons we are about to meet have the potential to become quick favorites for people working on research papers, essays, and collaborative projects.

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation

 

For the Google Generation, information isn’t scarce, and knowing has the illusion of only being a search away.

 

I’ve written before about how Google impacts the way students think. This post is less about students, and more about how planning resources like standards and curriculum maps might respond accordingly.

 

Curriculum maps are helpful little documents that standardize learning. That is, they clarify the content to be learned, and offer a shared pathway and schedule to deliver that content to students. Curriculum maps function as a kind of overview of learning content, and can also provide a common ground for the reform of planned learning activities based on assessment data (O’Malley, 1982).

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

I do wish in Google Education, that Google would bring back the Google Wonder Wheel and Time line.  This was very useful in teaching with English Language Learners.

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation & The Age Of Information

1. Make the work Google-proof

2. Force them to grapple with big questions without answers

3. Actually make social networks and media channels part of curriculum

4. Focus on learning strategies 

5. Create curriculum and lessons that absorb data seamlessly

6. Anticipate student needs

7. Focus less on “understanding”

8. Use spiraling by design

9. Discourage use of traditional units

10. Illuminate the nuance of the world

and bonus!

11. Promote discovery and curiosity and self-direction over coverage and compliance

 

The Age of Information is characterized by discovery, curiosity, whimsy, and connectivity–all which necessitate self-monitoring and self-direction.

Christy P.Novack's curator insight, February 23, 2014 11:36 AM

A nicely written article with strong points on what is beneficial for students. However, the reality of implementing some of the tips is beyond just the teacher in the classroom and exposes other challenges. #edtech #instructionaldesign
