Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery

Ten Disciplines of a Learner
We decided to continue the conversation on this topic at a faculty meeting. Several meetings later we had a new report card. We decided to give two grades and average them—one for “Learning,” the other for “Mastery.”

Sara might get an “F” in mastery and an “A” in learning, culminating in a “C” for the course. To be rigorous we picked ten observable behaviors and named them “Disciplines of a Learner:”

1.     Asks questions

2.     Builds on other people’s ideas

3.     Uses mistakes as learning opportunities

4.     Takes criticism constructively

5.     Speaks up

6.     Welcomes a challenge

7.     Takes risks

8.     Listens with an openness to change

9.     Perseveres in tasks

10.   Decides when to lead and when to follow.

Working cooperatively is not cheating. It is an important skill set that helps students today and down the road.

Mastery versus Learning - Lots of thought provoking ideas here...

Love this examination of 'Disciplines of a Learner" that clearly distinguishes between master and learning. I think we should demonstrate greater value to the lifelong skill of learning .

Like the questions.

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean?

Being Critically Reflective - What does it mean? | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

The terms 'critical' and 'reflection' are sorely misunderstood in education. Being critical is often misinterpreted as being negative. 'Reflection' is also frequently distorted to mean "reflect on what you are doing wrong". Too often the students that we teach give negative feedback when asked to be critical. So to counter act this, educators initiate strategies such as '2 stars and a wish' and SWNI (strengths, weaknesses, new ideas).
These strategies are designed to make reflective practices a more positive experience for students. It teaches them that being critically reflective is not just a negative activity, that it is important to be positive and give feedback to help improve or make something better.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

Karen Barad in Meeting the Universe Halfway suggests that reflection should be diffractive and Emmanuel Levinas suggested refractive. This suggests exploring the differences as the work we do is seen in the same way as light. Reflection bounces back with little change; whereas diffractive/refractive work creates a need to look closely at the blurriness and waviness that results.

This is the skill we all need to learn and urgently develop with our students.

As anyone who has worked abroad will tell you, a communication strategy that's effective in one country doesn't necessarily work in another.

'An Industry of Mediocrity': Study Criticizes Teacher-Education Programs

'An Industry of Mediocrity': Study Criticizes Teacher-Education Programs | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
The effort to rank programs, by the National Council on Teacher Quality and "U.S. News & World Report," has been controversial since it started, in 2011.

 

Colleges of education are "an industry of mediocrity" that churns out unprepared teachers to work in the nation's elementary and secondary schools, according to a highly anticipated report.

 

The report, "Teacher Prep Review," describes the findings of a controversial effort to rate the quality of programs at 1,130 institutions nationwide that prepare about 99 percent of the nation's traditionally trained teachers.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's insight:

This is one of those issues that feeds back and forth on itself. Colleges of education are an industry of mediocrity, but so is K-12 education. There is a total absence of leadership at the political and bureaucratic levels.
