Looks like a great resource. I liken getting kids to understand their digital footprint to getting them to understand the choices they make now, affects the direction their life will go later. Definitely a tough lesson to learn and teach! we need all the help we can get! :)

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Adilene Rodriguez admits she has always struggled with academics. Especially in middle school she hated getting up early, found her classes boring and didn’t really see where it was all going. When she started her freshman year at Arroyo High School in San Lorenzo, California, just south of Oakland, she was a shy student who rarely spoke up in class and had little confidence in herself as a scholar.

Rodriguez is now a senior and her approach to school has changed dramatically over her high school career. She attributes her shift to her freshman science teacher, Jim Clark, who taught the class about growth mindset from the very beginning and backed up the discussion with action.

“He would tell me, ‘You need to push yourself, that’s how you’re going to grow. Be confident. You’re not always going to be successful on your first tries, but you can get there,’ ” Rodriguez said

Teach Kids to Think About Their Thinking -- Metacognition

Teach Kids to Think About Their Thinking -- Metacognition | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Teaching children to think about their thinking, or metacognition, is essential. When learners become conscious of their thinking, they can become aware of their strengths and strategies that are useful to their learning.
Ness Crouch's insight:

Teaching metacognition to children is a difficult task. I know for me it has been a real challenge over the years. This is a really good article to give you some basics and help develop some tools for developing metacognition skills in students

Ness Crouch's insight:

Critical and creative thinking are really important! Teaching children how to think this way requires different of teaching. This is not something that most teacher training programs really focuses on.

There are many affordances for QR codes in history. Pose an historical inquiry question and get students to gather clues (evidence) using primary sources embedded with a QR code at a museum, local community, school etc. Or, get primary students to create their own QR codes for artefacts. This could engage students in historical inquiry and the analysis and use of primary and secondary sources.

VoiceThread - About - Digital Library

VoiceThread - About - Digital Library | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

The 5th Grade teacher on this website uses 'Voicethread' with historical photographs. Click on the video "Ellis Island" to see how primary students build a historical narrative around a visual image. Voice thread transforms media into collaborative spaces with video, voice, and text commenting.

 

Don't underestimate the importance of historical language in developing historical understanding. Provide opportunities for students to expand their historical vocabulary and to use language for a variety of purposes.

Young students need explicit instructions for when and how to use conventions of language.

 

Husbands (1996) identifies different types of historical language including:

1. The language of the past (e.g. convict, First Fleet, monarchy, revolution)

2. The language of historical time (century, period, modern, decade)

3. The language of historical processes (cause, chronology, similarity, difference)

4. The language of historical description and analysis (revolution, monarchy, democracy)

 

Use 'Word Walls' or word charts to help students keep track of information and terminology that is used in a Unit of Work and keep adding new words.

Louder than One Voice – 50 years of the Indigenous vote and its importance

Louder than One Voice – 50 years of the Indigenous vote and its importance | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Via Justine Yip, Catherine Smyth

Justine Yip's curator insight, March 28, 2015 5:34 AM

This website reflects on human rights in Australia and the long struggle of Australia's indigenous peoples. It contains images of artwork commissioned by the Indigenous Electoral Participation Program (IEPP) used to encourage Indigenous people to enrol to vote for the 50th anniversary of the indigenous vote (2012). A link is also provided to the Australian Electoral Commission's Louder Than One Voice video. 

 

Commemorating 50 years since indigenous Australians were given the right to vote at federal elections (1962 - 2012), Louder Than One Voice documents through interviews the struggle of Australia's indigenous peoples to be recognised by the government. Targeted at Indigenous Australians, it stresses the importance of having indigenous voices heard through the vote and how voting will make changes for future generations and benefit Australia as a nation. 

 

 

View 'Louder Than One Voice' on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4Xu207eC70&nbsp

 

These sources are appropriate and "sensitive and adequate" in their treatment of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders and their relation and role in the electoral process and governmental issues (Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority, 2007, p. 1.). ATSI perspectives are clearly evident, a cross-curriculum priority of the Australian National Curriculum (ACARA, 2015), which enables students to investigate electoral issues from an indigenous viewpoint and draws attention to governmental issues ATSI peoples still face (Kleeman, 2012, pp. 24-28).

 

These perspectives allow students to "learn about, acknowledge and value the cultures of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islanders" (NCB, 2009, p.15 in Stevens and McDonald, 201, p. 387). By embedding indigenous perspectives, the sources are also striving towards reconciliation and "recognising, acknowledging and redressing existing racism...for the benefit of all Australians" (Stevens & McDonald, 2011, pp. 387-388).

 

 

A literacy activity  could include:

- Students write a hypothetical letter from the viewpoint of an Australian Indigenous person to their local government representative, highlighting issues they face such as poverty and a lack of education. This could show how citizen participation can contribute to the wider community and the importance of citizens having their voices heard at a governmental level.

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning

Prompts to Help Students Reflect on How They Approach Learning | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD in Teaching Professor Blog

 

"One of the best gifts teachers can give students are the experiences that open their eyes to themselves as learners. Most students don’t think much about how they learn. Mine used to struggle to write a paragraph describing the study approaches they planned to use in my communication courses. However, to be fair, I’m not sure I had a lot of insights about my learning when I was a student. Did you?
As fall courses start to wind down, it’s an apt time for reflection. Here are some pithy (I hope) prompts that might motivate students to consider their beliefs about learning."

Dipity - Find, Create, and Embed Interactive Timelines | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Create an interactive, visually engaging timeline in minutes. Use dynamic visualization tools to display photos, videos, news and blogs in chronological order.

Via Catherine Smyth
Ness Crouch's insight:

Timelines are a way to organise historical information. However, dates alone do not allow students to vlsualise the time being referred to. Dipity is a useful tool to help students associate their visual images of history with the corresponding dates. Timelines should be comparative to help students see what life was life for a range of people at a given time.

Understanding historical time includes two important aspects: 1) chronology which is being able to order moments in time; and 2) being able to match moments in time to specific dates. Research suggests children find it easier to sequence historical pictures than assign dates or names to historical periods (Barton, 1994,2002; Barton and Levstik, 1996).

As children get older, they become better at ordering historical pictures on the basis of clues in technology, fashion and social roles. Primary children know what dates sound like and usually know what the current year is, but they find it difficult to associate periods in history with specific years.
