Georgetown University has been a thought leader in this area with its long-standing, in-house Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship (CNDLS), its collaboration and participation in the edX platform and, most significantly, its "Designing the Future(s) of the University" Initiative!

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News)

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News) | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Whether it’s Minecraft or duct tape wallets, the childhood passions that seem like fads, if not totally unproductive, can alternatively be seen as mediums for experiencing the virtuous cycle of curiosity: discovering, trying, failing and growing. At DIY, we’ve created a way for kids to explore hundreds of skills and to understand the ways in which they can be creative through them. Often, the skills are unconventional, and almost always the results are surprising. I don’t think it’s important that kids use the skills they learn on DIY for the rest of their lives. What’s important is that kids develop the muscle to be fearless learners so that they are never stuck with the skills they have. Only this will prepare them for a world where change is accelerating and depending on a single skill to provide a lifetime career is becoming impossible.

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield. Why not apply the process to education?

ISTE 2015: Takeaway Tips for a Library Maker Space | ISTE 2015

ISTE 2015: Takeaway Tips for a Library Maker Space | ISTE 2015 | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
The maker movement was front and center at the 2015 ISTE conference—and that’s a good thing for me. After following maker initiatives with great interest for some time now, I have the opportunity to design a maker space this year for 6th–12th grade students at my school, Worcester (MA) Academy.


A search of this year’s program at ISTE, held June 28 to July 1 in Philadelphia, using the term “constructivist learning/maker movement” resulted in 67 related sessions. The ISTE Librarians Network hosted a maker station at their Digital Age Playground and convened a panel on library maker spaces, featuring elementary and middle school librarians, a school administrator, and the coordinator of a public library maker initiative. Vendors and exhibitors demonstrated tools, lessons, and ideas for maker spaces. Meanwhile, a four-hour Maker Playground Wednesday morning drew a huge crowd of attendees.


One of my goals at the conference was to gather ideas and tips to help me create my library’s maker space. Here are some highlights of what I discovered at ISTE."

6 Factors Of Gamification That Changes Students - TeachThought

6 Factors Of Gamification That Changes Students - TeachThought | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
I was 11 the year my summer camp director transformed the regular schedule, procedures, and lingo that we were used to—into the most memorable, enriching experience I had ever encountered at that point in my life.

I had no idea that he had ‘gamified’ the week; I just knew that it was the best summer ever. Instead of grouping us by numbers, we were named after the Greek alphabet. We competed daily against the other groups in volleyball, softball, kickball, and on the final night —a chariot and Olympic flame opened an epic Olympic Game contest at midnight.

The director, or ‘game master’ as we were inclined to call him, even made everyone reset the clocks and watches—so we never knew what the real time was, the entire schedule was set on some sort of crazy alternate schedule. Now I realize that it probably allowed him to sleep in and us to stay up later, but we were none the wiser.

Daily we played games, wrote skits, went swimming, and competed for cleanest cabins. We did all the regular stuff, but it was more fun because there were rules and boundaries and points and collaboration and competition and a clear, mutual understanding of goals and performance and criteria for success.

As a student, I got to learn more about the power of ‘gamifying’ something, and what effect it had on learners.

With gaming you get to learn that there are students who are of talent sitting in the class who do not respond to regular teaching tactics. In gaming you learn from your mistakes and get points for trying.

Educational Leadership | Leveraging Teacher Leadership | EL Study Guide | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Teachers lead learning in their classrooms every day, but teacher leadership often extends beyond the classroom. Teachers lead their colleagues in professional learning and growth. They lead their communities in bringing change to schools. They might focus on leading within their schools and localities, or they might use social media to share their ideas with fellow educators around the world. But such leadership can be a challenge.

 

Administrators and policymakers need to listen to teacher voices and give teachers room to lead. This issue of Educational Leadership looks at how teachers are leading today and considers how schools can best leverage the leadership skills of teachers.

THEREFORE IT IS IMPORTANT TO BE HEARD BUT LET WHAT IS BEING SAD LINE UP WITH THE TRUE TEACHING PRACTICES BECAUSE THINGS CAN BE SO BEAUTIFUL ON PAPER BUT IN REALITY SOME COULD CARELESS BUT IF DOCMENTED ITS BINDING SO MAY THERE BE A SYSTEM OF ACCOUNTABILITY. NOT JUST INTERNAL THRUTHE STATE AGENCIES ALONE.
