Out With the Degree, In With the Badge: How Badges Motivate Learning

Out With the Degree, In With the Badge: How Badges Motivate Learning | Jewish Education | Scoop.it

"Catherine Lacey, a student at the University of Western Australia, is a Level 40 Hero in biology.

That’s her ranking on OpenStudy, where she spends up to 30 hours per week answering homework questions posed by students around the world.

Hero is the hardest badge to attain on the site, indicating considerable time spent helping other students. And Lacey doesn’t just help beginners—one of the many merit badges she’s earned from OpenStudy is for tutoring students in MIT open biology courses."

Yasemin Allsop's curator insight, August 16, 2013 2:35 AM

As someone who just started to elarn about badges, this is really intresting for me!

Laura Graceffa's curator insight, August 16, 2013 6:15 PM

Can it work in an environment that discourages making differences in achievement obvious?

Yvonne Marie Webber's comment, August 26, 2013 11:35 PM
@Laura, I really think it can. the badges do not have to focus on product, but can focus on each student collaborating, sharing, contributing in the way that is best for that student. The badges do not have to be given in a hierarchal manner.

11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom

11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom | Jewish Education | Scoop.it

"When Stanford Professor Lee Shulman was first enmeshed in the research that led to Board certification of teachers by NBPTS, I asked him – in a hotel bathroom, of all places – what interesting findings were turning up about great teachers as compared to the rest. He replied: 'Well, you might not find this such a big deal, but a big indicator is the degree to which a teacher accurately describes what happens in her classroom.'"

Yvonne Marie Webber's insight:

"So what can we do increase the use of research by practitioners? Through efforts like the Consortium for Applied Studies in Jewish Education (CASJE), which brings together funders, researchers, and practitioners for the purpose of improving Jewish education, we are working to put structures in place to support researchers and help bridge the gap between their world and that of the practitioners."

This March, 2013, article talks about ShalomLearning, a new platform that will eventually pull together teacher lessons and student created work to effectively flip the classroom environment, with the goal of changing how we teach, not what we teach.

Yvonne Marie Webber's comment, July 26, 2013 8:26 PM
The author explains that the problem is not in the structure of the way Tanakh is taught, but rather in the very essence of what is being taught. Are we plunging deeper and getting students to think for themselves about the meaning of the texts or are we merely teaching them what others think about the text?

Are Schools Meeting Their Technology Goals?
KQED (blog)
The best way to find out how technology is being used in classrooms and where schools could use more support is to ask educators.
Yvonne Marie Webber's insight:

An important thing to remember is that technology, programs and applications will continue to develop and change.  It is near impossible to know which ones will really make it and be around for years and which ones will fade quickly.  The key is to accept the challenge to find what works for you at the moment and go with it.  Allow yourself to be adaptable.

9 Wrong And 8 Right Ways Students Should Use Technology - Edudemic

9 Wrong And 8 Right Ways Students Should Use Technology - Edudemic | Jewish Education | Scoop.it
A thoughtful visual about ways students should use technology asks the big question: what do you want kids to do with technology?
Yvonne Marie Webber's insight:

We are too often distracted by what technology kids are using to see why we want them to use it.  Why are they using the technology?  What do we want them to get out of the experience? Would we say that we want students to create collages, type reports, and fill-in multiple choice answers? No.  We would say we want them to visually show an understanding of a concept (collage is the method to show the understanding)!

"Technology is a tool, it is meant to be added to your toolbox just like anything else"!
