6 Powerful Strategies For Deeper Learning In Your Classroom

 

In my new book, “Deeper Learning: How Eight Innovative Public Schools are Transforming Education in the Twenty-First Century,” I take you inside a growing movement that represents what should be the new normal. 

 

Deeper Learning is a set of student outcomes that includes mastery of essential academic content; thinking critically and solving complex problems; working collaboratively and communicating  effectively; having an academic mindset, and being self-directed.

10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment

 

Wherever we are, we’d all like to think our classrooms are “intellectually active” places. Progressive learning (like our 21st Century Model, for example) environments. Highly effective and conducive to student-centered learning. But what does that mean?

"They can act as a kind of criteria to measure your own against–see if you notice a pattern".  Check to see if these criteria apply within your teaching and learning process and environments.

10 Things Every Teacher Should Know How To Do With Google Docs | Edudemic | Hastings VCAL | Scoop.it

Google Docs is a powerful word processing tool that many schools have adopted. As it’s similar to Microsoft Word and other word processing tools, most of its features are intuitive to use. However, in addition to completing many of the functions of a traditional word processor, Google Docs provides even more capabilities that can be invaluable to educators. Here are ten tricks that can make your life easier with Google Docs:

I have step by step increase the usage and teaching about Google Docs, Slides, Hangouts and Drive at school. It becomes easier if changes take place a step at a time in your teaching and learning environments.

Mark Fuson's curator insight, July 19, 2014 10:03 AM

I must admit, I've got to get better at some of these. One of the biggest issues with learning something is practice and practice takes time and the willingness to fail. Unfortunately, teachers often are so rushed by their schedules that they can't afford to struggle with something in order to learn it because they have 165 students, 3 different preps, papers to grade, a family life, and curriculum to create. Unless we change these factors, how can a teacher learn new skills in the classroom and why would they try to if experiencing a little failure could negatively impact evaluation?

Kim Lindskog's curator insight, July 25, 2014 5:07 PM

As we think about what it is that we want to help teachers with in relation to Google apps...this might help with the conversation.

What is Critical Thinking? (Explained with Great Videos)

What is Critical Thinking? (Explained with Great Videos) | Hastings VCAL | Scoop.it

In simple terms, it is the process of breaking down what you know and information you have, and then evaluating and critically analyzing it in order to make an informed decision without bias.

A critical thinker:

- Is open-minded and mindful of alternatives
- Desires to be, and is, well-informed
- Judges well the credibility of sources
- Identifies reasons, assumptions, and conclusions
- Asks appropriate clarifying questions
- Judges well the quality of an argument, including its reasons, assumptions, evidence, and their degree of support for the conclusion
- Can well develop and defend a reasonable position regarding a belief or an action, doing justice to challenges
- Formulates plausible hypotheses
- Plans and conducts experiments well
- Defines terms in a way appropriate for the context
- Draws conclusions when warranted – but with caution
- Integrates all of the above aspects of critical thinking
