Helping Students Consider the Significance of Details with Wordless ... | TL21 | Scoop.it

Wordless picture books require students to consider visual details, imagery (inferring and reading between the lines ... yeah, I know there are no-lines) and bring prior knowledge to the individual/whole & small group discussions.

“So this is the dance!” Four Steps to Personalization | Gino Bondi

“So this is the dance!” Four Steps to Personalization | Gino Bondi | TL21 | Scoop.it

"In his recent post, Driving Innovation in K-12, Chris Kennedy raises what for me is the starting point for all of the changes within the BC Education Plan: "Teachers need to know where to begin – “personalization” and “digital literacy” are broad and ambiguous terms, so we need to narrow the framework."

 

"Value of the teacher; impact of the classroom experience; personalizing all of this for the student: where do we start?

 

"Personalizing education? It’s a four step dance set to a culture of learning beat and anyone can groove to it if they are willing to learn it now."

 

> Step One:  What s a "Need to Know" - Determine what the primary learning outcomes will be.

>  Step Two:  Assessment - Consider "Strinberg's new construct in "The Rainbow Project":  creativity and expression through narrative.

> Step Three:  "Personal" Talk - "Instead of creating adult initiated curriculum to match a specific assessment, we now engage in one to ones (virtual and face to face) with students to determine what “passion” they wish to pursue in their “inquiry” to demonstrate mastery."

> Step Four:  The Teachers of Tomorrow are in Our Classroom Today - Bringing together the expertise who are passionate about inviting others on a path of inquiry-based learning.
