A lot of focus on intentionality and communication here. It is implicit that tools are chosen to fit the learning and context rather than learning being designed based on tools.

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens

Critical Thinking: Educating Competent Citizens | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

In working with students, critical thinking encourages and promotes:

Humility to accept criteria that is not their own.Courage to defend their own criteria against others.Responsibility to contrast and take into account the appropriate information.Commitment to filtering out and separating valid from useless information.Respect for the group and for the individual when the time comes for debate and contrasting ideas.

To educate an individual in critical thinking is to educate him or her to be capable of governing or controlling their own personal and professional life and to be able to find answers and solutions to problems. It is the road to forming critical and responsible citizens who are capable of confronting the challenges of the future.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, February 22, 5:45 PM

So many students simply want the answer...no thinking involved, the easy way. We are doing our youth a tremendous injustice not emphasizing both the metacognitive and critical thinking processes. They need to be able to explore a problem, then analyze, explain, and evaluate it in order to survive as adults.

Collaboration Matters

Collaboration Matters | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Blogger's note: This post focuses on the importance of integrating collaboration into classroom practice. In my next post, I'll talk about strategies for successful facilitation of collaborative work...

 

Learning is a social process, and the learning process is deepened when ideas are challenged and learners are pushed to produce work that surpasses their expectations of what they can do.

 

That said, working in groups is a continually challenging process. It is important that students aren't forced to work together on projects where collaboration isn't necessary or beneficial to the final product.

Teacher collaboration is the key to future success - we must find more ways to help this process to flourish

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 23, 1:37 PM

"John Dewey believed that education must be " . . . a process of living and not a preparation for future living." This powerful idea is a helpful reminder of the rich, insightful growth and knowledge that can come from deep, collaborative learning experiences."

Therefore, it could be said true learning is about acting out the theory, of rhetoric and reality remaining close, of adults modelling for young people appropriate learning attitudes and behaviours, as those young people, if forced to choose, will copy what you do rather than do what you say!

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 3:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, February 8, 3:23 AM

The three aspects that are discussed in this post are:

* Appropriate

* Purposeful

* Promotes understanding

The discussion on 'Appropriate' includes a variety of suggestions that help demonstrate how rigor is embedded in the assessment. In some cases the assessment is also related to each level of Bloom's Taxonomy.

What does 'Purposeful' mean? Reflect on the standards you are teaching. What type of thinking are you asking your students to do? What is the final product that will demonstrate their understanding?

'Promotes understanding' ties into all the areas but also consider how to make this an authentic learning experience as you design a rigorous assessment. Several examples are included.

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, February 8, 10:16 AM

We've been talking a lot lately about "authentic" assessment.


Here are the three statements discussed in this post. 

1. The Assessment Is Appropriate

2. The Assignment Is Purposeful

3. The Assessment Promotes Understanding

Daniel Rimmereid's curator insight, March 25, 5:35 PM

This is a great resource that really describes clearly and concisely what makes a great assessment but it took it one step further by talking about rigor. The first point is that good assessments need to be appropriate. This talks about how the assessment needs to be about what students learned but more importantly it needs to talk about and address what the students learned in a challenging way. If the assessment is too easy then students will not be truly assessed on the material and thus the assessment will be weak. The second point is that assessment needs to be purposeful. It is good for your students to finish an assessment and for them to clearly see what they have produced from that assessment. The third point is that the assessment should allow students to come away with some deeper form of understanding on the topic. I think something that I have taken away from this article is that assessment can be a great tool for deepening students understanding and really giving them something to be able to look back and know that they have accomplished something.
