Learning with 'e's: The meaning of pedagogy

A post by Steve Wheeler about the meaning of pedagogy: "Good pedagogy is about guiding students to learning. It's about posing challenges, asking the right questions, and presenting relevant problems for learners to explore, answer and solve".

Helen Teague's insight:

The Greek word for child (usually a boy) is pais (the stem of this is 'paid'), and leader is agogus - so a paid-agogus or pedagogue was literally a leader of children.

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Inquiry-Based Learning and Research | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

Helen Teague's insight:

This post addresses game-thinking and gamification as not really the use of games, as it is the use of elements from games. The writer states that  research finds engagement leads to learning and lecturing is a huge waste of time in terms of recall, higher level thinking and actual application. Some content must be transferred this way so add elements to shorten delivery and lengthen time on task
