NASBE - Technology Study Group (2012)

The National Association of State Boards of Education exists to serve and strengthen State Boards of Education in their pursuit of high levels of academic achievement for all students.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

Technology in the 21st century is a foundational tool for the current generation of school-aged children. The innovative technologies, such as smart phones, iPads, and now Leap Pads for younger children, have launched our children into a digital age where they no longer function on a daily basis without some form of communication device. As children, parents, communities, and businesses have shifted to this reliance on technology, schools and districts must do the same in order to prepare students successfully in this digital age.

Video: Student-centered learning in action - WOW Factor!

Video:  Student-centered learning in action - WOW Factor! | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Massabesic Middle School, Waterboro

"For so many years, students would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will assess each other."

 

Ms. Downing-Ford:

 

So when a student walks into my classroom, I think what their struck with is that I'm not the one that's talking the most in the classroom. There's a lot of voice and choice in the classroom.

 

For so many years, they would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will self-assess their work and assess each other.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 20, 2012 11:35 AM

At Massabesic Middle School, learners are unpacking the standards and are given "voice and choice" in how they learn and how they will express what they know and understand.  This is an excellent example of what student-centered learning is and how teachers and learners roles change. Above all, the ownership to learning takes place where the learners are driving their own learning.

 

A thank you to the Maine DOE and Ms. Downing-Ford in sharing this video and illustrating the power behind student-centered learning!

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, December 21, 2012 12:39 PM

Worth a watch. I'm struck with the fact that these students are using education jargon, like: "unpacking the standards." Not sure how I feel about that.

From the website

"The tragic events of December 14th in Newtown, Connecticut have evoked many emotions—sadness, grief, helplessness, anxiety, and anger. Schools are supposed to be one of the safe places, where students go to learn and be with friends. Children who are struggling with their thoughts and feelings about the stories and images of the shooting may turn to trusted adults for help and guidance. ESR is providing links here to a variety of high quality resources to help adults engage in conversations with students and children."
