"The research found that digital tools are “broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.”

 

With this statement, I concur!

Easy approach, reeeeeally useful!!

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, November 11, 2013 8:31 AM

Not research per se, but it's an interesting prompt towards thinking carefully about uilding projects for education. There are may things to think about to make a project a really good, worthwhile learning experience. 

Miles McGeehan's curator insight, November 11, 2013 10:28 AM

I completely concur.  Excellent graphic.

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Using a cell phone during class was once as taboo as note passing, but in some classrooms, cell phone use is as common (and encouraged) as note taking.
