Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 15, 3:17 PM

Has your role as a teacher shifted? Do you model being a learner with your learners? This post by Jackie Gerstein shares why it is important that the educator "needs to understand and be able to articulate and demonstrate the process of learning, him or herself."

How can you go about doing this. Gerstein recommends that "educators pick something new to learn and practice doing the following: (below quoted from the post)

  1. Explicitly state and record the metacognitive process while learning.
  2. Demonstrate and articulate the actual steps of learning.
  3. Record the stages of artifact development.
  4. Understand and embrace the iterative process of learning.
  5. Use and demonstrate the self-evaluative reflection process.

Gerstein then discusses each of these five steps/procedures/strategies, providing links to additional resources as well as one additional visual as well as a video that looks at how the learning process is iterative (and may provide you with an idea you would like to do with your class).

Lisa Norris's curator insight, February 16, 2:12 PM

If we want to build expert learners...we need to take the time to model this ourselves.

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, February 19, 11:34 AM

The "Sage on the Stage" model must give way to the "Guide on the Side". Concurrently the teacher must model the learners mentality of facilitator of learning.

A Framework for Differentiation

A Framework for Differentiation | Hebrew Education | Scoop.it

"Differentiation is adjusting and modifying what skills and concepts student learn, what materials the use, and/or how their learning is assessed based on the needs of the students.

Our students are not all the same, so we cannot expect that teaching a lesson one way will reach every student."

We hopefully are all trying to differentiate, but sometimes we need that creative push and encouragement.

The brightly coloured padded cube houses a wireless microphone that doesn’t mind being tossed across a room or passed from person-to-person crowd surfing-style. In fact, it’s actively encouraged.
