A Visual Guide To Every Single Learning Theory - Edudemic

A Visual Guide To Every Single Learning Theory - Edudemic | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
This detailed analysis and chart of every single learning theory is worth zooming in and studying.

Ephansen's curator insight, June 14, 2013 10:23 AM

Though lacking minute detail, this is a fabulous resource for putting learning theories into a visual contex and grouping.  So appreciated!

Audrey's curator insight, August 8, 2013 9:55 AM

There is some very useful information for educators: The Montessori approach: mixed age classrooms, students’ choice of activities, constructivist / discovery learning rather than direct instruction. Homeschooling where students are given freedom to follow their own interest with a rich assortment of resources; Multiple Intelligences: where resources encourage students to use different ways of learning.

 

Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity
Complexity, chaos, and ambiguity are aspects of leadership and learning. Without those we cannot innovate and create.

Children Are Not Widgets

Children Are Not Widgets | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
In an effort to improve education, many reformers suggest that we use a business approach to evaluate teachers.  To do this they suggest that teachers must be rated based on what they “do” for the children that they teach.  For many, this means...

Via Dean J. Fusto
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

And, teachers are not widgets. The opening line says a lot about reform which deforms. It comes from outside classrooms which denies teachers their voice in their work. How is this different than old-school, modernist thinking?

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Setting teaching standards for beginning teachers at the national level is not even commendable without local supports in place to help them once they get into classrooms. This is old-school, modernist thinking and implementing.

What feedback is and isn't - Granted, and ... Grant Wiggins | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

"The research is clear: good feedback is essential to learning at high levels. Alas, too few people understand what feedback is and isn’t.

Don’t believe me? Here’s a true/false quiz: which of the following 4 statements is feedback?

 

“Nice job on the project, Sheshona!”

“Next time, Sam, you’ll want to make your thesis clearer to the reader”

“The lesson would be more effective, Shana, if your visuals were more polished and supportive of the teaching.”

“You taught about ants, Stefan? I LOVE ants!”"

 


Via John Evans, Suvi Salo
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

If we think of feedback as being necessarily useful to be used, thoughtful teachers play a huge role in educating students.

5 Signs You're The Problem at Work

5 Signs You're The Problem at Work | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

One of the reasons launching a startup appeals to a lot of people is that being your own boss--and the boss of others--is a lot more appealing than than being an employee.

 

But just because you're the boss doesn't mean the problems go away. In fact, there seem to be more--clients, employees, investors, regulations--and sometimes, the biggest problem is you. Here are a few ways to tell if some of your so-called problems could easily be fixed by changing your behavior and attitude.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

As I read, I thought the points applied well to school. The managers I worked for did not want teachers to have opposing view. When I retired, I was told not to tell anyone. I told who I wanted to and my employer was one of the last to be told. There is a culture that insists on dependency in schools that is not healthy

Leadership is Situational, Integrity is Not - Tech Cocktail

Leadership is Situational, Integrity is Not - Tech Cocktail | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it


I had always thought that people had their own leadership styles. One could be autocratic, consensus building, charming, aloof, data-driven, passionate, etc.


Via Jose Luis Anzizar, Bobby Dillard, Robin Brothers
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Integrity is situational and there is no way that we can teach morality in the strictest sense. We can help students understand what it means to be a good person and to take questioning stances. By turning classrooms into political and cultural sites, students can learn valuable lessons as they apply ethical thinking in practical situations. In that fashion, we might end up with leadership that says we have to trust them when all the evidences suggests not trusting.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

A challenge is we confuse education with school. School's goal might be, and I am stretching here, to place students in the workforce. That is certainly not the goal of education which is to help children and youth become good, moral, and ethical people, which probably means we will have people ready for the workplace.

 

Are we failing in the education of children and youth? How do we measure that?

What High Performers Do When Things Get Tough

What High Performers Do When Things Get Tough | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

The last decade of entrepreneurship has taken place within a rapidly changing environment of growth, struggle, triumph and confusion. The cornerstones relied upon in the past for small business stability and growth have crumbled, leaving an expensive hodgepodge of misguided efforts and bipolar business strategies. 

 

Fundamentally, sales and marketing behaviors are no longer the same. Technology changes have made accurate access to complex business answers easier than ever. Data systems are faster and more people have smarter phones with faster access to the internet. Things we used to wonder about are now quickly answered by an audio search on Google. Business is no longer about having inside access to sales information.


Via Vicki Kossoff @ The Learning Factor
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Creativity is a chaotic place to be and for managers this is not where they want to be. They want certainty, but the real certainty is in uncertainty. This requires conversations and embracing the uncertainty along the way. Consider the way we hold curriculum as a plan that leads to learning. When learning does happen, it is because the classroom is a chaotic places where great conversations happen and bring meaning and life to inert outcomes.

All good education is special education: Assessment, Accountability & Data Use conference

As a keynote speaker, Rick Stiggins, a man who has dedicated his life to creating quality assessments, was a phenomenal and inspirational speaker. Rick descended upon the education community by referring to it as an institution that is wrongly believed to have quality assessments. He respectfully challenged the audience to rethink the way we design assessments and wanted us to truly reflect on the purpose of assessments. Dr. Stiggins said it best: "decisions will be made based on these crucial assessments." Another major point that Dr. Stiggins made was that to be able to create a strong assessment, we need to set a clear purpose and target and create an assessment around it.


Via Alfredo Calderon
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

All education is special education. This becomes true when we encounter each student and their particular learning as unique to them.

 

Rick Stiggins has been sounding the assessment alarm for a number of years. If he thinks schools, not education, have poor quality assessment that is problematic.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Teachers cannot be held directly accountable for the learning and non- learning of students. Teachers can invite students into learning which makes learning a complex conversation rather than a given set of prescribed outcomes designed in technocratic and bureaucratic ways. It does not mean curriculum should not be planned, but means it need to be understood in the midst of autobiographical encounters by students and teachers.
