Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 21, 2014 4:21 PM
The Reggio Emilia approach is about having children seen as competent, resourceful, curious, imaginative, inventive and to possess a desire to interact and communicate with others. The learning environment, the third educator, invites learners to explore and discover on their own as teachers and parents observe and document the process. 
Norton Gusky's curator insight, November 22, 2014 9:09 AM

Carnegie Mellon University and Carlow University in Pittsburgh have been leaders in using the Reggio Emilia model for early childhood. Reggio Emilia sees technology as one tool that actively engages the child. The environment is really a Maker Space giving young learners the tools to learn based on their interests.

Stanford researcher explores why cliques thrive in some high schools more than others

Stanford researcher  explores why cliques thrive in some high schools more than others | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Schools that offer students more choice are more likely to be rank-ordered, cliquish and segregated by race, age, gender and social status.

Those are among the conclusions of a new study, published online today in American Sociological Review. The lead author is Daniel A. McFarland, professor of education at Stanford Graduate School of Education. "Educators often suspect that the social world of adolescents is beyond their reach and out of their control, but that's not really so,'' McFarland said. "They have leverage, because the schools are indirectly shaping conditions in these societies."

Learning to Learning: 7 critical shifts

Learning to Learning: 7 critical shifts | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
More than anything else, the concept of self-directed, entrepreneurial learning and transfer stand out. Learning how to learn is very different than learning content. In the 21st century, access to content and resources is no longer in short supply, but rather access to learning pathways, and authentic reasons to learn, which is where meaning making, critical curiosity, and resilience come in.

Making that shift in your own mind is important for these dimensions to be relevant in your classroom. The shift is from learning content to learning how to learn.

The takeaways for teachers probably start with the role of the student in the learning process: voice, choice, personalization, self-direction, project-based learning, and other low-hanging fruit of current trends in learning.

Bigger picture, the conclusions are probably more related to educational structures, the form of curriculum, and school design.

Via Edumorfosis, Suvi Salo
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Learning to learn, self-directed learning, and life-long learning are not just about entrepreneurial achievement, whatever that is. It is about living in wonder and curiosity.
