Multimedia Assessments: Tools for making dynamic audio-and video-based tests | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it
Video, audio, and images can help students gain deeper understanding of a question. Previously, struggling readers might have had assessment questions read aloud to him or her. Now, multimedia tools allow these students to take tests independently.

Tony Meehan's curator insight, November 27, 2014 3:03 PM

This model describes 4 levels of mastery using measurements of competence and consciousness.  As novices, we are in a state of “Unconscious Incompetence”, where we don’t recognize what we need to know.  As we gain knowledge and experience, we transition to “Conscious Incompetence,” where we are aware of what we do not know.  Developing further, the third stage is “Conscious Competence,” where most of us remain.  We have considerable ability and knowledge at our craft, yet it is not automatic; we must still think and act deliberately.  The fourth and final stage is mastery, or “Unconscious Competence”.

The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

Est-ce que l'école n'a pas l'obligation de favoriser l'apprentissage de tous?

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, December 30, 2014 5:32 PM

This idea has been around a long time.  When I was an undergraduate, I had some friends state to me something along the lines of: "Now that I've finished my assignments, I can start pursuing my education."  The network of schools and programs for struggling teens started in the 1980s were based on many of these ideas, and so far as emotional growth along with academics, the emphasis was on helping the struggling students learn who they are and what they can do with it.  The motivation at that time was very much along the line of what the author calls learning.  Many of them are still doing that. -Lon

SMARTERTEACHER's curator insight, Today, 11:29 AM

WOW! Great concept "SCHOOL does not equal LEARNING". This is a scary thought for many teachers who create content driven classrooms.  But as educators it speaks to the value of the building an environment of learning.

How to Create Awesome Infographics Without Being a Designer

How to Create Awesome Infographics Without Being a Designer | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

If you’re anything like me, you learned how to use programs like Photoshop and Gimp out of necessity to do minor changes to photos. You might have even dabbled in some easier graphic design projects for your own website, but it takes you hours to get the image or the design looking just right and you’re left exhausted. You might even spend time looking up tutorials on how to achieve a certain effect and still have trouble re-creating it.

 

In short, while you do know your way around the programs like Photoshop to a certain extent, it takes you forever and there’s absolutely no way you’d call yourself a graphic designer. But then, you’re surfing around the web and you noticed some really cool infographics on things like fashion, music and food and you can’t help but wish that you could create something like that; even if it’d take you a week....

What Motivates Teachers? - Mind/Shift

What Motivates Teachers? - Mind/Shift | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"A recent Gallup poll of 170,000 Americans — 10,000 of whom were teachers — found that teaching is the second most satisfying profession (after medicine). Ironically, the same Gallup poll found that in contrast to their overall happiness with their jobs, teachers often rate last or close to the bottom for workplace engagement and happiness.

“Of all the professions we studied in the U.S., teachers are the least likely to say that their opinions count and the least likely to say that their supervisor creates an open and sharing environment,” said Brandon Busteed, executive director of Gallup Education, at the Next New World Conference.

This is a troubling trend at a time when schools need to continue to attract high quality educators. “If the perception in our country is that teaching is not a great profession to go into, we certainly aren’t going to be encouraging really talented young people to be thinking about the profession of teaching,” Busteed said in an interview with Stephen Smith on the American RadioWorks podcast."

Study of massive preprint archive hints at the geography of plagiarism

Study of massive preprint archive hints at the geography of plagiarism | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"New analyses of the hundreds of thousands of technical manuscripts submitted to arXiv, the repository of digital preprint articles, are offering some intriguing insights into the consequences—and geography—of scientific plagiarism. It appears that copying text from other papers is more common in some nations than others, but the outcome is generally the same for authors who copy extensively: Their papers don’t get cited much. 

 

The map above, prepared by ScienceInsider, takes a conservative approach. It shows only the incidence of flagged authors for the 57 nations with at least 100 submitted papers, to minimize distortion from small sample sizes. (In Ethiopia, for example, there are only three submitting authors and two of them have been flagged.)"

Here is a print-and-play games from the Institute of Play that you may find helpful in your classroom.

Socratic Smackdown helps students practice "argumentation around any topic or text." You may use it to help students become self-directed learners. There is a great video that quickly walks you though the process and you may download a pdf that provides Game Basics, Game Play, Student Resources and Teacher Resources. This game is geared to students from Grades 6 - 12.

Below are some of the rules of the game (found in the pdf).

* Create teams of four to six players and provide a topic, text or issue that will be discusses as well as a question set

* Share that discussion skill strategies are part of the game

* Set chairs in fishbowl pattern when ready to start

* Choose one student from each team to play

* Have 2 or more students as scorekeepers who will use Socratic Smackdown Scorecards

* Coaching cards will be used by students not keeping score, or by all students after the end of the match (if all are also scoring)

* Students "play" for 6 minutes and Scorecards are collected

Playing Socratic Smackdown with students will help them develop discussion and debate skills, a component of Common Core Speaking and Listening,  and a rubric is also provided.
