Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, October 19, 2013 4:48 AM

This style of teaching offers logical outcomes. Teachers usually do not have time to go over in detail what they just taught with every student that may not have "gotten it" from the good efforts of the teacher's main, first or second attempt to present information. Going over things means one is not moving forward with other information that needs to be covered as well and will bore those that did "get it" the first time.

 

Often the information is "not gotten" because a student or sometimes many students were not present for the main show and tell… Using a hybrid method allows for students to review while "helping" others understand in a group activity as well as helping students take ownership of what they have been taught. Students in  group activities use what they understood by passing it on to others that need more applied information and understanding. The activities allow and encourage discussing ideas and identifying common problems with others. Group activity is social in nature which allows an acceptable way to become acquainted with others in class and bond as they work together to solve a problem or complete a task.

 

Technology can also be set up for review links or extended supplemental growth or remediation for individual learning development.

 

"Excerpt:

"The hybrid model combines direct teacher instruction, group activities and independent learning through technology."

The Answer Sheet - Why schools should try things not "research-based"

Nancy White's curator insight, October 7, 2013 11:56 AM

A very important distinction from Ray McNulty, from the  International Center for Leadership in Education --Best Practices are based on 20th Century Education practices in education.  Next practices are what are needed for innovative transformation in schools. Favorite passage:

 

"Education leaders insist that they want their schools to be innovative, yet if a teacher offers a new idea, a common response is: "That’s sounds like a good idea, but where is the data that proves it will work?"

Introducing truly novel ideas means considering something so new that it has not been proven to work. Critics will say we shouldn’t be experimenting on our young people, and I’m not suggesting we ditch our best practices and research-based strategies. Hard data is an important component in the school-improvement process.

But if the current system isn’t working, then we should do what innovators and entrepreneurs have done since the dawn of humanity — try something different. Any educator knows that some of the latest research-based best practices come out of a 20th century classroom"

These were some of the questions asked in a national online survey of teachers and administrators, conducted for Common Sense Media's Graphite by Harris Interactive in May 2013.

Interview with Connected Educator Stephanie Sandifer | Innovation Disruption in Education | Scoop.it

 

"I think it’s critically important that leaders at all levels begin to recognize the value of connected education, and it is equally important that they provide the leadership necessary to help all educators and students become more connected. "

Stephanie Sandifer's curator insight, October 14, 2013 10:23 AM

When educators become connected, the students benefit as well.  Connected educators become exposed to a wider variety of resources, methods, and strategies for enhancing and improving the learning environment and the learning experience for all students.  Connected educators also begin to see value in creating learning experiences that are built on connectedness and this will translate into the creation of a more connected learning environment where students will begin to communicate, collaborate, and create new knowledge with peers around the world.  This global connectedness will increasingly become an essential workplace skill as it allows the individual to tap into a global connected knowledge-base (made up of their peers) and access just-in-time learning or information relevant to current work.

If you missed this article in the National Geographic it is worth going back and reading.  It discusses the fact that America is no longer capable of really catergorizing our students and each other as one type.  Maybe this means we are finally getting to close to Martin Luther King Jr.'s Dream as we celebrate Martin Luther King Jr. Day this month this article could cause some interesting discussions with your students if they watch/ ready part of his speech and compare his dream to how students' feel and what they see.

Take part in Earth Science Week 2013! Held October 13-19, ESW 2013 will promote awareness of the many exciting uses of maps and mapping technologies in the geosciences. “Mapping Our World,” the theme of ESW 2013, engages young people and the public in learning how geoscientists, geographers, and other mapping professionals use maps to represent land formations, natural resource deposits, bodies of water, fault lines, volcanic activity, weather patterns, travel routes, parks, businesses, population distribution, our shared geologic heritage, and more. Maps help show how the Earth systems – geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere – interact.

Earth Science week unleashes the mechanism to understand the  dynamic world. It is a great way to observe and understand the constanly evolving processes that bring about changes in the physical and social landscape. From the evolution of islands off the coast of southern Pakistan, as was reported after the deadly earthquake of 24th September to freak weather and migration of illegal immigrants from Europe to Africa, understanding mapping techniques would give valuable insight into the interaction of the Earth Systems.

Only 8% say Common Core will have a negative impact on the classroom as schools retool to comply with the new standards.
