High Possibility Classrooms: Student Agency Through Technology-Enhanced Learning

High Possibility Classrooms: Student Agency Through Technology-Enhanced Learning | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it
Common to all four of these teachers was a deep fascination with technology. They did not use it for all learning, but most of the time over the school week. Their approaches varied, but they ended up in the same place: engaged classrooms where students are empowered and given a voice to take control of their own learning. Teachers stepped out of the way.

The Rosa Parks Story

The Rosa Parks Story | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it

Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was the greatest, most distinguished African American Woman Civil Rights Activist of our time. The woman known as “the first lady of civil rights” was born February 4, 1913, in Tuskegee, Alabama to James McCauley and Leona Edwards, her parents, a carpenter and a teacher, respectively. Her ancestry was a mixture of African American, Cherokee-Creek and Scots-Irish, which some say accounts for her fair complexion. In 1932, Rosa married Raymond Parks, a barber from Montgomery, at her mother’s house.

Leading is about simple actions taken every day

Leadership isn't an abstract status that you can attain or have conferred upon you; rather, it's a continuous process of learning and self-improvement.

(From the article): The good thing about that is you’ll likely have opportunities: whatever your situation, you can get out there and help yourself and others build toward something bigger than yourselves. We each are dealt a hand by life and circumstance, but we hopefully have the chance to make our own mark.


The below concepts are simple, but I hope they are helpful in starting down a long, fulfilling road. Leading is not separate from living, and that means there is no template or fixed end to the journey. Even with the best guide, you’ll need to be your own navigator.

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it
When students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning, they can participate in a dialogue with the teacher that allows them to work together to determine the actual level of mastery. No longer working in isolation, the teacher can now adequately discuss depth of learning, thereby helping students to communicate particular knowledge that is too often absent from their final products. After students provide the teacher with thorough information about their process, the teacher is in a better position to assess student learning.

Metacognition is essential in learning. Deep learning can only take place when students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning.

...and we mustn't forget that: 

 

"In short, teachers cannot look at all student work the same way because every student starts in a different place. To ensure maximum progress to mastery we need to give every child feedback tailored to his or her specific needs."
