Ethical understanding - Learning continuum - The Australian Curriculum v7.5 | Global Citizenship | Scoop.it

The Ethical understanding learning continuum is organised into three interrelated organising elements:

Understanding ethical concepts and issuesReasoning in decision making and actionsExploring values, rights and responsibilities
Maree Whiteley's insight:

What does it mean to be a 'Global Citizen'? Technologies bring local and distant communities into classrooms, exposing students to knowledge and global concerns as never before. Complex issues require responses that take account of ethical considerations such as human rights and responsibilities, animal rights, environmental issues and global justice.

The Nueva School - Design Thinking

The Nueva School - Design Thinking | Global Citizenship | Scoop.it
Located in the San Francisco Bay Area, The Nueva School is a nationally recognized independent school serving gifted students and emphasizing integrated studies, creative arts, and social-emotional learning.
Maree Whiteley's insight:

Such a great teaching and learning model...By asking "What do we need next?" and using the stages on this chart, design thinkers craft a unique process for each particular project. As students become more mindful of the process they have used on previous projects, they build confidence in their ability to successfully navigate open-ended challenges...and have the personal and collaborative tools and resolve to TAKE ACTION.

In the constructivist-learning model, engagement and experience combine
with immersive environments and self-organisation of knowledge to establish
a context in which learning occurs naturally. Constructivism has since the
time of Dewey become closely affiliated with Project Based Learning and yet
despite years of efforts to refine the process the result does not always
match the promise (Scheer, Noweski and Meinel. 2012). Scheer et al. argue

Hand Over the Reins: Student-Driven Projects | Scholastic.com | Global Citizenship | Scoop.it

In Project Based Learning (PBL), students go through an extended process of inquiry in response to a complex question, problem, or challenge. While allowing for some degree of student 'voice and choice,' rigorous projects are carefully planned, managed, and assessed to help students learn key academic content, practice 21st century skills (such as collaboration, communication and critical thinking), and create high-quality, authentic products and presentations.”

Maree Whiteley's insight:

Based on a example of STEM integration, this site explores several step-by-step models for successful PBL projects.

Maree Whiteley's insight:

I really like the step-by-step ('warts and all') honesty of this blog post by Dan Adiletta.A PBL approach requires your students to apply a wide array of skills and equally a varied range of assessment tasks. Students will need ample scaffolding, front-loaded content, carefully chosen groups, explicit instructions, varied assessments and ample feedback. Fortunately, project-based learning is made easier with educational technology.
