The Trouble With Differentiating Differentiation - Huffington Post (blog) | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

It's that time of year again, those two weeks in May during which high school students around the nation are sitting their Advanced Placement exams. And this year we mark the 30th anniversary of the most celebrated AP class of all time: in 1982 a triumphant 14 of Jaime Escalante's 15 calculus students passed the end-of-year test, their achievement immortalized in the 1988 film Stand and Deliver.

"When used effectively, technology plays an important role in enhancing the learning process. Teachers can use digital devices to present supplemental material for lessons or to encourage students to take a more hands-on role in their education.

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

In media studies we often look at the creation of print and digital advertisements. Traditionally, students learn many of the foundational principles for creating a layout through a lecture or text book reading, and then eventually create their own.

What if we started with creativity rather than principles?

Моя практика показывает, что такой путь - верный!

Ulrike Grabe's curator insight, January 10, 12:56 AM

Who ever suggested Bloom's taxonomy as a pyramid that required to master the bottom levels before the top ones?

Miguel Angel Perez Alvarez's curator insight, January 10, 8:47 AM

Suena provocador comenzar por la creación y la creatividad en lugar de comenzar con la memorización de información.

Mobile phones to aid literacy learning in Victoria | Adult Learning Australia

Mobile phones to aid literacy learning in Victoria | Adult Learning Australia | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

A sustainable model for using mobile devices to assist with analysing learners' literacy and numeracy skills will be developed in a pilot program. The project will develop, trial and evaluate an e-learning mobile solution to test literacy and numeracy capabilities of disadvantaged young people in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley. When poor literacy and numeracy skills are combined with youth experiencing intellectual disabilities or mental health issues, or where they come from dysfunctional families, the chance of them remaining in formal education is greatly diminished.

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

Maybe “design” can help in understanding the importance of cultural diversity and interdisciplinarity.
