SOLO taxonomy

SOLO taxonomy | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The SOLO taxonomy stands for:

Structure of
Observed
Learning
Outcomes

It was developed by Biggs and Collis (1982), and is well described in Biggs and Tang (2007)

It describes level of increasing complexity in a student's understanding of a subject, through five stages, and it is claimed to be applicable to any subject area. Not all students get through all five stages, of course, and indeed not all teaching (and even less "training") is designed to take them all the way.

Kim Flintoff's insight:

Tends to focus on the development of higher order skills.  A useful adjunct to the more familiar framework of Bloom and perhapos more relevant to the higher education arena than Bloom.

Back to Basics: prioritizing teaching and its foundations over technology | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

With students eager to learn how to use and apply technology, and with the aim of providing them with the practice they need, we run the risk of overshadowing the fundamentals of education and forgetting that the basis of knowledge must be understood and mastered first in order to make the most out of technology.

Why Professors Shouldn’t Ban Smartphones

Why Professors Shouldn’t Ban Smartphones | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"As smartphones have become more common, educators have struggled with the question of what to do with smartphones in the classroom. For K-12 educators, the answer has been to ban smartphones from the classroom completely."

Nataliacp's curator insight, May 29, 1:01 PM
A study conducted by researchers in Singapore found that undergraduate students who were allowed to keep their phones with them actually scored better on tasks that measured their cognitive functioning. Even when they weren’t allowed to use their phones, students who were allowed to keep their phones in their pockets performed better than students whose phones were confiscated. 

As teachers, we need to take into account in which moments it is necessary to use the cell phones within the classrooms and which situations is essential confiscate them. Furthermore, we need to consider the age of the students and the subject that we are teaching.

How Making Thinking Visible Helps Teachers and Students - November Learning

How Making Thinking Visible Helps Teachers and Students - November Learning | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Article Produced in Partnership with Cisco Education . One category of digital tools, making thinking visible, can give students a higher level of confidence to ask questions when they need help, or share their opinions and ideas with the rest of the class — leading to more thoughtful discussions. These same tools inform educators about how to plan for much more meaningful lessons. In the 1980s coming of age movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, one of the funniest scenes I remember (perhaps because I was a social studies teacher at the time) is the high school economics class with Ben [...]

Reeling Them in Early

Reeling Them in Early | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
It can be overwhelming to think of all of the objectives you have for your students. In my own writing courses, I want my students to learn how to construct an argument and how to write good sentences. I want them to understand the place of research, and how to integrate outside sources into their writing. Of course to become good writers, they need to be good readers, understanding how other writers create. And what about learning how to draft and revise? Trying to balance that glut of important skills, my head can become very muddled, very quickly.

Digital skills that teachers need for the connected classroom #1: Backchannels | World of Better Learning | Cambridge University Press

Digital skills that teachers need for the connected classroom #1: Backchannels | World of Better Learning | Cambridge University Press | Higher Education Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Nik Peachey, a Learning Technology Consultant, Writer and Teacher Trainer, begins his new ELT Technology series on digital teaching skills. In this first post, he explores the benefits of using a backchannel in a face-to-face class.

In the last twenty-five years since I started teaching, I have seen little real change in the nature of the ELT classroom. It’s true that whiteboards and blackboards have become digitised in many classrooms and now replace the role of tape recorders and video cassette decks, many course-books now have a range of digital materials that can be displayed on a data projector rather than an OHP, and many publishers now provide a range of interactive materials that students can use for homework. Despite all these things though, much of what they deliver is very similar to the materials I used when I first did my teaching certificate all those years ago.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, July 7, 12:07 PM
Two myths were of interest to me. First, good teachers are always good which is reinforced by the idea of best practices. Best practices are a myth themselves. Yes, there are good ideas, but they have to fit the new context. Second, good teaching is all about student centeredness. Good teachers have a strong understanding of their discipline and are able to present it to students.
