How To Add Rigor To Anything

How To Add Rigor To Anything | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"

"Rigor is a fundamental piece of any learning experience.

It is also among the most troublesome due to its relativity. Rigorous for whom? And more importantly, how can you “cause” it?

Barbara Blackburn, author of “Rigor is not a 4-Letter Word,” shared 5 “myths” concerning rigor, and they are indicative of the common misconceptions: that difficult, dry, academic, sink-or-swim learning is inherently rigorous.

Myth #1: Lots of Homework is a Sign of Rigor
Myth #2: Rigor Means Doing More
Myth #3: Rigor is Not For Everyone
Myth #4: Providing Support Means Lessening Rigor
Myth #5: Resources Do Not Equal Rigor"

Rigor is not "more of it;" it's scaffolding towards greater complexity.

Very interesting infographic. I'm optimistic about the "trending up" issues but dissappointed in the "trending down" issues, especially to see academics, transparency, and infographics going down. However, if elearning is trending down and blending learning is trending up, I think this is a positive overall trend for holistic, life-long learning. Thanks for the post!

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer

The Most Important Question Every Assessment Should Answer | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"The difference between assessment of learning and assessment for learning is a crucial one, in many ways indicative of an important shift in education.

Traditionally, tests have told teachers and parents how a student “does,” then offers a very accessible point of data (usually percentage correct and subsequent letter grade) that is reported to parents as a performance indicator."

"Assessment for learning" versus "assessment of learning" is also promoted as a key component of the learning portfolio all colleges of pharmacy need to have to demonstrate student achievement.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 6, 2013 8:40 PM

I have practiced a system that covers four of the 5 key strategies for many years starting at five years of age.  I would not teach any other way. With this kind of assessment students after seven years of age can lead parent teacher conferences with ease and confidence. Had a dad in tears once who confessed it was the first time his son had talked meaningfully to him about his learning. Then I was in tears too....

Aunty Alice's curator insight, November 21, 2013 8:03 PM

A good little diagram but it does not address the issue of how to do it..it requires modelling, first by the teacher, then slowly devolving the responsibility to the learner, and focus on one subject area at a time e.g. Literacy . In my experience it also requires set aside time with each student to assess together, recording what has been discussed so it is not forgotten. I am talking about elementary learners here..

Research Tools For Students To Diversify Their Approach To Data Seeking

Research Tools For Students To Diversify Their Approach To Data Seeking | hobbitlibrarianscoops | Scoop.it

"Why do so many students choose Wikipedia when asked to find information on the Internet?

I believe the answer is that Wikipedia is like the McDonalds of the Internet, you can always find it and you  know what you’re going to get. Quite frankly, I like Wikipedia because it provides students with a starting point for research and I am particularly fond of the way I’ve seen so many students develop their own method of research by using the links at the bottom to find more information."

How do we get students to learn how to effectively and efficiently search the web? This post provides a variety of resources that your students may find helpful. The list is robust and includes:

* Google Search Education - This site provides a series of lesson plans that help teach students how to search as well as lessons on Power Searching,  A Google A Day Challenge, and live trainings (as well as trainings that have been recorded.

* The "Find" Tool which will help students quickly locate key words
* Oolone - a visual search engine

* Twurdy - search by reading lexile

Additional resources are listed (and hot links to all are inclucluded). Please note that Qwiki Reference is no longer available.

Common Sense Media is a great resource for teaching digital citizenship. A day or so ago I scooped a new song they had created on digital citizenship. This poster is a digitial citizenship pledge, one that you may talk about with your student and have each sign...and it has two extra spaces where you may choose to add one or two new rules. If you click through to their website you will also find a lesson plan on this. Common Sense Media does require  you to log-in to access all their materials (for download) and they have excellent resources.

The tension between the monetization of social networks and people’s desire for privacy is something that doesn’t show any signs of resolving. The most valuable thing that social networks have is your information, and this infographic does a good job of vetting out where your information is and how vulnerable we all are because of it.

Its a shame that we have so much internet identity theft in this digital age. One solution I highly recommend to many of our clients is the use of prepaid debit cards in order to minimize potential loss with like a Walmart, Netspend or Bancorp Prepaid Visa or Mastercard for online purchases and link that even further through a paypal debit card. Our website has links to business cards also http://ironsolutionsgroup.com/business-credit-cards/
