Tapping into Your Students’ Individual Intelligences in the Classroom

Tapping into Your Students’ Individual Intelligences in the Classroom | Innovative styles in educatio | Scoop.it
Howard Gardner s theory of multiple intelligences changed the world of education. Before Gardner proposed that a student could have an affinity towards more than one intelligence, a student was usually put into one category that would define him for the rest of his life.

I am sure that Gardner's theory of multiple intelligences has changed some practices, but I don't think it has taken root across the board.

Strategies To Promote Critical Thinking in the Elementary Classroom

Strategies To Promote Critical Thinking in the Elementary Classroom | Innovative styles in educatio | Scoop.it

For us, critical thinking happens when students analyze and evaluate evidence, arguments, claims and beliefs. They can then learn how to make judgments and decisions based on others’ points of view, interpret information and draw conclusions.

Muy importante siempre promover el pensamiento crítico

enrique rubio royo's curator insight, June 16, 2014 6:26 AM

Entre las diversas estrategias para promocionar el pensamiento crítico, se proponen cuatro (INQUIRY, QUESTIONING, PROBLEM SOLVING Y COLLABORATION), por ser, según el autor, las de mayor impacto.

Buena síntesis a la hora de implementar en el aula, de manera colaborativa,  el aprendizaje significativo y el pensamiento crítico         , siendo clave plantear 'guiding questions', de naturaleza abierta ('open-ended'), en la actividad diaria con los estudiantes.

Michel J. Boustani's curator insight, June 16, 2014 8:17 AM

Students (future adults) need to learn what is and how to critical thinking from their own discoveries. SO that they will earn the freedom of critical thinking in their own time, from their own realities... I like this paper, the subject is an endless work in progress for a better social collective and individual well being!

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Innovative styles in educatio | Scoop.it

Teachers who work silently, don’t tweet, blog and discuss ideas with people around the world are obsolete. Teachers are no longer working locally but globally and it’s our job to share what we do and see what others are doing. If a teacher is no longer learning then he shouldn’t be teaching other people.

 

We should all be tweeting, blogging and sharing what works and doesn’t work, get and give advice to and from co-workers around the world. We should constantly be improving our craft because professional development isn’t a 3 hour workshop once a month but a lifelong process.

 

“We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John Dewey

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery | Innovative styles in educatio | Scoop.it
People are innately wired to avoid risk. During times of times of change and uncertainty, our risk aversion is amplified. Yet the number one way to gaining competitive edge is by creating a culture where people feel safe and emboldened to innovate and challenge the status quo thinking. The first key to creating a 'culture of courage' is leading from possibility, not probability.

The Science of Storytelling

The Science of Storytelling | Innovative styles in educatio | Scoop.it

Many studies show us that our brains prefer storytelling to facts.When we read facts, only the language parts of our brains work to understand the meaning. When we read a story, the language parts of our brains and any other part of the brain that we would use if we were actually experiencing what we’re reading, light up.This means that it’s easier for us to remember stories than facts. Our brains can't make major distinctions between a story we’re reading about and something we are actually doing....

Chris Carter's comment, July 10, 2014 11:36 AM
Humility makes sense. Socrates knew that he was ignorant, and therefor was ready to learn. If I think that I already know a thing, or do not need to know a thing, then my mind is closed to it. All learning starts from a point of ignorance, and then move to greater approximations of understanding until mastery.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 14, 2014 8:01 PM

My teaching experience suggests the more creative a teacher is the less likely they are to be accepted. Creativity is hard work and those around us do not like to be shown up. I also found that the words innovative and creative were often used to support introducing the new fad or catch phrase. Usually, it was just a way of trying to sell something that was unpalatable that had been around for some time and should have been gotten rid of.

Does happiness make you smarter?

According to this article and scientific research conducted in workplaces, it does. 


With this in mind, when developing ways to enhance students' critical and creative thinking skills, teachers must provide ways that promote positive student well-being.
The great thing about this article, it provides already implemented ideas that have proven to be beneficial for diverse age groups.   Google offices around the world have embedded game zones including mini golf, pool tables, and video games  for workers, promoting a happier workplace.  And it seems to be working, as code developers are creating the best computer coding for the company. 

But how does this relate to teaching?!
If you think about your own classroom and how you try and make it as colourful as possible, you are doing well.  Think about how many Australian schools have handball courts that have kids playing on them every chance they can get.  Now think of ways to implement a zone in your own classroom that suits the needs and abilities of your students, and work it into the content being taught. 

 

Follow my twitter account (https://twitter.com/misstaylorW) and comment on this post with ideas that assist in promoting happy thinkers in the classroom.
