InfuseLearning's curator insight, December 16, 2012 5:47 PM

Very thoughtful and well written--especially interested in this part


"It is a student taking control of what she wants to learn, of individualizing her learning interests and sharing them. Isn’t that one of the purposes of education, to foster autonomy and love of problem solving?"


Agreed x 100!

How we can do better.
InfuseLearning's insight:

Especially interested in this--reminds me of the "perserverance" through problem solving that presents itself often in the wording of the common core standards.

 

"I personally believe that most of the time if you’ve worked yourself enough, your brain starts to draw connections. Sometimes the connections happen before the problem solving, sometimes the problem solving happens before the connections."

Getting Over Student Learning Styles Theory | Faculty Focus

Getting Over Student Learning Styles Theory | Faculty Focus | InfusePedagogy | Scoop.it

"One of the outcomes of students making decisions about how they will learn and what standards of performance they will strive for is customization. Students do the customization within the teachers’ framework. Teachers don’t attempt to do the impossible—predict students’ learning variations and design appropriate exercises. The teaching task becomes how to design a classroom situation that maximizes students’ opportunities to choose and to learn from the results of those choices."

When to Put the Tech Away in Your 1:1 (or Any) Classroom – from Shawn & Beth on Edudemic | Leading Change in Changing Times

When to Put the Tech Away in Your 1:1 (or Any) Classroom – from Shawn & Beth on Edudemic | Leading Change in Changing Times | InfusePedagogy | Scoop.it
InfuseLearning's insight:

Especially like this paragraph

"Technology is a lot like sharing a good story with your class. When it connects to the lesson and provides a solid memorable story that students can wrap their minds around, go with it. When the story fizzles and the connection is lost – or it becomes a self-inflicted class distraction – set it aside, regroup and try to be wiser the next time."

 

& this one...

 

"The trick is to never let technology erode the relationships in your classroom.  It takes awhile understand to how to effectively create the same relationships that existed in a traditional classroom.  When the teacher is talking less, and the students are interacting more, the process for building community looks and feels very different."

Removing Barriers and Educational Technology | The Principal of Change

Removing Barriers and Educational Technology | The Principal of Change | InfusePedagogy | Scoop.it
InfuseLearning's insight:

So many gems in this post...

 

"We live in a world where we all have the opportunity to share our thoughts instantly with the entire world, but schools have traditionally kept that learning within the confines of the building and have only shared during “special events”. If we give our students an authentic audience, we give them the opportunity to make a difference in their own lives, as well as the lives of others."


-Empowering student and teacher voice in learning


-Authentic audience


-Access vs. curating content and creators of content


-Bring real learning-learn from successful organizations, entreprenuership 


-K-12 & Higher Ed: Stop talking about each other and start talking to each other (vertical planning anyone?)

 

-Overcoming challenges: privacy laws- cloud storage security

Why Schools Must Move Beyond One-to-One Computing | November Learning

Unless we break out of this limited vision that one-to-one computing is about the device, we are doomed to waste our resources.
InfuseLearning's insight:

Especially like this line....Adding a digital device to the classroom without a fundamental change in the culture of teaching and learning will not lead to significant improvement.

 "We need to bring back curiosity," he said. "We need to bring back our creativity. We need to be ok with not knowing everything, and we need to encourage collaboration and iteration."

 

Ultimately, said Casap, the question isn't "how do we use technology in the classroom," but "how do we utilize the Web as a learning platform." It's no longer a question of what you want to be when you grow up, but what problem you want to solve. "The information is out there," he said, and we have to help them learn how to look for it, and how to make sense of it when they find it."

InfuseLearning's insight:

"Those of us who offer innovative ways to educate believe we need to replace a factory method of teaching with a student-centered learning environment in which the roles of the teacher, student and administrator function differently at every level. 

We need to believe the adults delivering education services are capable of being innovative, adaptive and collaborative and welcome being accountable for student outcomes. Then we need to invest in this belief by providing both the professional development and the infrastructure to make this belief a reality for all students and all teachers."

and when I say this most people say 'but I like to learn', and they obviously missed the point... think pre-language humans / post-language humans, we will take for granted that everyone masters our language, id est the sum of all human knowledge.
dephunked's comment, January 29, 2013 4:47 PM
we´ll take the worlds knowledge for granted, just like our previous language, just like our tap-water, just like we´ve always assimilated our technology and made it a part of who we are, our cultural/social identity, it´s the human condition,
Chandan Gupta's curator insight, April 2, 2013 3:39 PM

Of course, it should be in system should be synced, but not as a whole. Partially, the system can be implemented. In my point of view it is must to adopt the advancement. Avoiding the thinking of classroom, the system must understand about the participation of the student.
