Teaching Kids to Interpret Theme: The Limits of Practice

Teaching Kids to Interpret Theme: The Limits of Practice | Good ideas about learning | Scoop.it
Many years ago my daughter, Meagan, had a homework assignment. Her literature teacher assigned a short story to read and Meagan was to figure out the theme. The theme she came up with: “People do a lot of different things.” Needless to say, it doesn’t matter what the story was, that wasn’t the theme. (Though she was a little surprised that I could know that without even reading it.) “Meagan how do your teachers teach you to figure out theme?”

[PDF] New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning through Technology

[PDF] New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning through Technology | Good ideas about learning | Scoop.it
The New Vision for Education project examines the role that technology can potentially play to improve education for the future. In phase II, we investigated innovative ways to help students develop competencies* and character qualities** broadly defined as social emotional skills, which are critical components of 21st century skill framework but not a core focus in today’s curriculum.
 
Can technology effectively facilitate the development of competencies and character qualities, in addition to cognitive skills? If yes, what are the opportunities to capture to make it happen? What are the immediate, mid-term, and long-term barriers to remove? How can multistakeholders work together to create a roadmap for this vision?
 
In seeking answers to these questions, the report assembles a list of 55 research-based digital product features that are highly correlated with the ten competencies and character qualities and identifies five nascent technology trends – wearable devices, leading-edge apps, virtual reality, advanced analytics and machine learning, and affective computing – that extend ways of fostering social emotional learning (SEL) and also offer potential for exciting new learning strategies. The report concludes with recommendations to each stakeholder on actions to advance SEL and SEL technology adoption.

Andrés E. Henao's curator insight, April 27, 10:44 PM
On the side of the branched article ''What are the 21st-century skills every student needs?'', the current resume outlines an issue that is impossible to leave aside in nowaday's e-learning spread. Essentially, virtuality seems to replicate a world where an excess amount of needs constantly stress progression while disregarding the menace of a possible senseless or sterile community whose socia emotionall awareness may be already degrading.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Good ideas about learning | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.

Learning new concepts in a math class at any level of education can be
challenging. To learn these concepts well, it is important to use an
effective strategy that strengthens your understanding of the material.
Self-explanation is a learning technique in which you not only provide the
explanation of the problem that you’re faced with, but you are also the one
who is benefitting from the explanation (1). So, self-explanation is
explaining the concept, the steps, and the solution to yourself in order to
develop a deeper understanding of the material.

As I interview teachers, the role of reflection is very important to their pedagogic practices. It takes on many different modes: writing, driving to and from work, listening purposefully, etc. It is not a one-size-fits-all.
