A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy

A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy | Educational Leadership and Extras | Scoop.it

"The modern learner has to sift through a lot of information.

That means higher level thinking skills like analysis and evaluation are necessary just to reduce all the noise and establish the credibility of information.

There is also the matter of utility. Evaluating information depends as much on context and circumstance as it does the nature of the data itself."

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 21, 4:38 PM

There are six critical things that great leaders do that really stand out. Any of us can do the same.

1. They're kind without being weak

 

2. They're strong without being harsh

 

3. They're confident, without being cocky

 

4. They stay positive, but remain realistic

 

5. They're role models, not preachers

 

6. They're willing to take a bullet for their people

Why I'm Tired of 'Grit'

The K-12 infatuation with "grit" offers an impractical and unfair model for education, writes educator James R. Delisle.

'Success' is complex. 'Success' in learning is no different. A tendency to simplistic explanations is not healthy in education. This post outlines why the simplistic use of 'grit' is limited. In doing so, the post runs the risk of using concepts of relative ability, genetics, and context in a simplistic manner. All of the above influence 'success'. The athletics concept of a 'personal best' allows for the complex interplay of these factors.

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies - Cult of Pedagogy

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies - Cult of Pedagogy | Educational Leadership and Extras | Scoop.it
When I worked with student teachers on developing effective lesson plans, one thing I always asked them to revise was the phrase “We will discuss.”

We will discuss the video.

We will discuss the story.

We will discuss our results.

Every time I saw it in a lesson plan, I would add a  note: “What format will you use? What questions will you ask? How will you ensure that all students participate?” I was pretty sure that We will discuss actually meant the teacher would do most of the talking; He would throw out a couple of questions like “So what did you think about the video?” or “What was the theme of the story?” and a few students would respond, resulting in something that looked  like a discussion, but was ultimately just a conversation between the teacher and a handful of extroverted students; a classic case of Fisheye Teaching.

The problem wasn’t them; in most of the classrooms where they’d sat as students, that’s exactly what a class discussion looked like. They didn’t know any other “formats.” I have only ever been familiar with a few myself. But when teachers began contacting me recently asking for a more comprehensive list, I knew it was time to do some serious research.

How to Shape Services to Match Student Needs

How to Shape Services to Match Student Needs | Educational Leadership and Extras | Scoop.it
Online learning can feel like a long trip through a lonely desert, even in the best-designed online classes. Support services are usually available, but adjusting to a virtual services structure can be daunting for those new to the world of digitized instruction. All institutions provide infrastructure support and wraparound services, but it’s difficult to replicate a building-based services structure when you don’t have the building. After all, you can see a building as you walk to class — the student has a clear place — but this is not as easy online.
