The 21st Century Principal: 5 Principles That Make Outdated Educational Practice Impossible

The 21st Century Principal: 5 Principles That Make Outdated Educational Practice Impossible | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Last night, the #edchat topic was, "How should teachers deal with colleagues who are comfortable with 19th century and punitive measures for non-compliant students?" Judging by the responses, many teachers either felt they could gently prod this colleague to changing his or her practice. Others did not see this their responsibility at all. They saw it as the responsibility of the administrator.

Our College Crisis: A PowerPoint Presentation by Bill Gates

Our College Crisis: A PowerPoint Presentation by Bill Gates | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Of the many public figures who routinely sound off about the problems facing higher education in America, Bill Gates is one who is actually worth paying attention to. As he explained yesterday at the Washington Ideas Forum, shrinking state budgets have indeed made college less affordable and lead to ballooning student debt.

 

But throughout most of our higher education system, the biggest problem isn't necessarily cost; it's our shockingly low graduation rates. If we want to produce an educated, 21st century workforce, we need to focus on making sure more students who are currently dropping out of school instead make it to commencement.

STEM Students Must Be Taught to Fail

STEM Students Must Be Taught to Fail | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
They must know how to fail so they can get back up again and learn from their failure.

 

As a mechanical engineering professor at Northwestern University, I believe that that's precisely what we should be teaching our students in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) subjects: how to fail. Right now, we do not explicitly teach our students how to fail so that they can get right back up. That's in direct conflict with our goal: to prepare students to play competitively upon graduation. If our students are going to stop deadly pandemics, solve the energy crisis, and cure world hunger and poverty, they will have to be prepared to fail, over and over—and more important, they will need to know how to learn from those failures. STEM innovator Albert Einstein recognized that falling is an inevitable part of innovation; he's quoted as having said, "A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new." Another STEM innovator, Marie Curie attributed her success the fact that, as she put it, "I was taught that the way of progress was neither swift nor easy."

Unorthodox math lessons add up to real gains at Dana Middle School in Hawthorne

Unorthodox math lessons add up to real gains at Dana Middle School in Hawthorne | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
Much of what you thought you knew about math class has been turned on its head at Dana Middle School in the Wiseburn School District.

 

Seventh- and eighth-graders at the west Hawthorne school don't really use textbooks or do much in the way of homework. The teachers rarely spend more than 10 minutes on any given lecture. At the beginning of class, instead of urging kids to quiet down, the teachers try to get them riled up.

What Kind of Success Does 'Character' Predict?

What Kind of Success Does 'Character' Predict? | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it
It's not character or "grit" alone, but interest and motivation, as well, that propel student success, Joan Goodman writes.

 

IQ, the time-honored predictor of school success, has a new rival: “character.” As described by Paul Tough, who initially popularized these ideas in a New York Times Magazine article last year, character consists of a set of traits: self-control, zest, social intelligence, gratitude, optimism, curiosity, and, most especially, grit. If teachers devote themselves to enhancing these qualities, Tough writes in more detail in his new book, How Children Succeed, Grit, Curiosity, and the Hidden Power of Character, students will have an improved shot at success...
