Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 17, 12:17 PM

When we teach and assess, it is based on multiple curricula. There is the curricula-as-plans along with each teacher's personal curriculum and each student's personal curriculum. The latter two are the autobiographical filters teachers and students use in teaching and learning. Teaching and learning encountered this way become complex conversations that bring the curricula-as-plans to life.

Patricia Julia Alejandra Pérez's curator insight, June 18, 8:54 AM

Las metas de desempeño tratan sobre  competencias, es decir, habilidades, destrezas y conocimientos que un estudiante debe tener cuando se halla en un nivel avanzado de su carrera, las metas de dominio hacen referencia al aspecto más específico, centrado en "dominar"  una o varias destreza determinadas. No son excluyen, son integradas unas con otras, por lo tanto no debería afectar los resultados de los estudiantes en las evaluaciones.

Experts were warning parents and teachers that the push for academic excellence in children was risking their mental well being.

Catch and Release: Encourage Independence

Catch and Release: Encourage Independence | Good ideas about learning | Scoop.it
The Catch and Release teaching technique allows students to take on a project independently, but keeps the instructor in control by providing time to get students back on track. Watch as Ms. Noonan uses this technique in her classroom.
Frances's insight:

Here's a really great example of "learning how to learn...with others"/aka collaborative learning..  Fits well with the PORTALS Framework!  I'm going to focus the "Good Ideas About Learning' framework for the time being on "learning how to learn....with self and others" and post these kinds of examples on my "learn to learn" blog.
