The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education

The Flipped Classroom: The Full Picture for Tinkering and Maker Education | Initial teacher training | Scoop.it

It is a model in which authentic, often hands-on, experiences and student interests drive the learning process, and the videos, as they are being proposed in the flipped classroom discourse, support the learning rather than being central or at the core of learning.

Carlos Lizarraga Celaya's curator insight, July 3, 2013 10:20 AM

I see the power of engaging kids in science and technology through the practices of making and hands-on experiences, through tinkering and taking things apart. Schools seem to have forgotten that students learn best when they are engaged; in fact, the biggest problem in schools is boredom. Students sit passively, expected to absorb all the content that is thrown at them without much context. The context that’s missing is the real world.

Learning by doing was the distillation of the learning philosophy of John Dewey. He wrote: “The school must represent present life—life as real and vital to the child as that which he carries on in the home, in the neighborhood, or on the playground.”

Responsibility vs Accountability

If learners take responsibility for their learning, they will be more motivated to learn. If teachers are accountable for their learning, then there is no reason to be motivated other than for a grade.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 15, 2013 9:10 AM

Responsibility means a moral obligation and something taken upon one's self.

Accountability is more of a social contract or social obligation. Accountability can be measurable. If teachers are accountable for their learners' learning, then why would learners feel responsible for their own learning?


When learners feel a sense of ownership, they want to engage in academic tasks and persist in learning. If teachers and learners are learners first, then responsibility comes with being a learner. Learners of all ages become responsible for their learning when they own and drive their learning.

So what is it? Teachers and learners need to be accountable for their own learning by taking responsibility for their learning. What do you see as the difference between accountability and responsibility?

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 30, 2013 2:07 PM

My goal is always to encourage students to take ownership of their learning.  What you learn is yours-- it can't be taken away!

Are kids really motivated by technology? | Initial teacher training | Scoop.it

You can’t motivate students with technology because technology alone isn’t motivating. Worse yet, students are almost always ambivalent toward digital tools. While you may be completely jazzed by the interactive whiteboard in your classroom or the wiki that you just whipped up, your kids could probably care less.

The post provides suggestions on how to teach digital literacy skills. The levels that need to be taught are (quoting from the post):

* It begins as a critical thinking and language skill...

* Utilizing various "search help" tools that may search engines offer...

* Critically sorting through the results...

* Sometimes, supply your kids with the internet resources you want then to use...

Technology Doesn't Teach, Teachers Teach

Technology Doesn't Teach, Teachers Teach | Initial teacher training | Scoop.it
No matter how far we evolve from the little red schoolhouse, we cannot afford to sacrifice the foundation of education that is built upon the unique relationship between teacher and student.

Education is undergoing a "seismic change" as more and more digital devices enter the classroom. This article looks at the digital devices and at the teacher, stating "the motherboard and the memory chip will never replace the passion and inspiration of a real-life teacher."

The article points out that for new technology to work teachers must be trained effectively in the new technology. Information on the replacement of traditional textbooks with digital textbooks is also discussed. Two school districts are mentioned that saw significant improvement with state testing scores (in specific subjects) with the introducation of digital textbooks.

Based on the information presented it is clear that for digital content to work well teachers must be trained. Without the training the achievment gap will not be impacted. For more information click through to the article.

21st century education is about cultivating important skills such as critical thinking and digital skills.

 

There is now much more knowledge online than you would find in all libraries of the world taken together.

 

To tap into the potential of this vast repertoire of online resources, our learners need instruction on how to effectively use web search techniques to search for academic sources.

 

Practitioners need to teach them how to be independent learners.

 

Google Search Education has all the materials practitioners need to help their learners become skilled searchers, whether they are just starting out with search or ready for advanced training. (Flipped Classroom approach may be the answer to getting them all up to speed)
