narative structures and codes - some great dot point information.

Aurion Learning's curator insight, August 2, 2013 4:38 AM

Claude Levi-Strauss was a social anthropologist who "found that stories that are told unconciously mirror the values and myths of a culture."

 

Storytelling is an effective way of communicating values and information.

Certainly, all the world around, everybody relies on technology more than they imagine or want. This is an interesting report to explore the challenges of this new reality.
Ralph Springett's curator insight, October 10, 2:36 PM
Supporting the development of digital skills is complex. Initiatives are often context specific and reliant on partnerships. In addition, the environment must be fertile for initiatives to flourish. Policy makers, education leaders, industry and the individual all have a role in equitable digital skills development.
How is it that you will contribute?

Kintsugi: The Centuries-Old Japanese Craft of Repairing Pottery with Gold & Finding Beauty in Broken Things


We all grow up believing we should emphasize the inherent positives about ourselves. But what if we also emphasized the negatives, the parts we've had to work to fix or improve? If we did it just right, would the negatives still look so negative after all?

Developing the digital literacies of academic staff: an institutional approach | Newland | Research in Learning Technology

Developing the digital literacies of academic staff: an institutional approach | Newland | Research in Learning Technology | iEduc | Scoop.it

For each literacy, there is an explanation of what the literacy is, why it is important and how to gain it, with links to resources and training opportunities. After an initial pilot, the DLF website was launched in the summer of 2014. This paper discusses the strategic context and policy development of the DLF, its initial conception and subsequent development based on a pilot phase, feedback and evaluation. It critically analyses two of the ways that engagement with the DLF have been promoted: (1) formal professional development schemes and (2) the use of a ‘School-based’ approach. It examines the successes and challenges of the University of Brighton’s scheme and makes some suggestions for subsequent steps including taking a course-level approach.

The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development - The Aspen Institute

The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development - The Aspen Institute | iEduc | Scoop.it

"The Evidence Base for How We Learn: Supporting Students’ Social, Emotional, and Academic Development articulates the scientific consensus regarding how people learn. The research brief presents a set of consensus statements—developed and unanimously signed onto by the Commission’s Council of Distinguished Scientists—that affirm the interconnectedness of social, emotional, and academic development as central to the learning process.

"The brief draws from brain science, medicine, economics, psychology, and education research to describe why it is essential to address the social, emotional, and cognitive dimensions of learning; how these dimensions together shape students’ academic and life outcomes; and how these competencies can be taught throughout childhood, adolescence, and beyond. The evidence outlined in this brief moves the nation beyond the debate as to whether schools should attend to students’ social and emotional development, to how schools can integrate social, emotional, and academic development into their daily work."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 13, 4:39 PM
Learniing is linked to healthy social and emotional opportunities children encounter to solve problems. John Dewey argued that learning is problem solving and much of it is social. I think play is essential to learning.

Great Teachers Don't Teach

Great Teachers Don't Teach | iEduc | Scoop.it
Blogger Ben Johnson outlines constructivist and experiential teaching techniques that go beyond direct instruction.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 6, 11:48 AM

"One characteristic of an effective teacher is that they don't teach. You say that is outrageous. How can an effective teacher teach without teaching?

 

My experience is that good teachers care about students. Good teachers know the content and know how to explain it. Good teachers expect and demand high levels of performance of students. Good teachers are great performers and storytellers that rivet their students' attention.

 

All of this is good but great teachers engineer learning experiences that maneuver the students into the driver's seat and then the teachers get out of the way. Students learn best by personally experiencing learning that is physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual. John Dewey had it right in 1935 when he espoused his theories on experiential learning. Today we call this constructivism."

 

(...)

 

"The word "teacher" implies the flow of knowledge and skills from one person to another. Whether it be a lecture, or a power point, it involves talking at the students. While that is commonly viewed as the quickest and easiest way to impart knowledge and skills, we all realize that it is not the most effective. Socrates had it right when he only answered a question with more questions and look what he produced -- some of the greatest minds that ever lived. We call this the Socratic method.

 

Yes, there are times when direct instruction is necessary, but only to be able to do something with that knowledge or skill, but a great teacher devises learning experiences that force all the students to be engaged much like being in the deep end of the swimming pool. Then the lesson on arm and leg strokes becomes relevant. To learn, the students must do something. We call this performance-based learning."

 

(...)

 

"Returning to my original premise: great teachers do not teach. They stack the deck so that students have a reason to learn and in the process can't help but learn mainly by teaching themselves. This knowledge then becomes permanent and cherished rather than illusory and irrelevant."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 6, 2:23 PM
The objective is that good teachers create an environment where each student's learning can emerge. I don't think that means they don't teach. Gert Biesta uses John Dewey in his writing argues that teaching is relational. Having a strong grasp of content, being able to deliver it, caring for one's students, etc. each go into creating the environment where learning can emerge.
