Competency based education is a great idea but can it be used in a traditional classroom setting?

R Kay Richardson's curator insight, January 10, 7:46 AM

Sounds a bit like principles of Instructional Design, doesn't it?

Mia's infographics are amazing resources. This classroom management tool is especially useful for those new to student voice. Here you find a flow-chart of steps to make the rule setting process efficient and the outcome a set of classroom expectations created and owned by the kids.

Nit just the why, but the HOW. Thx Beth

KB...Konnected's curator insight, September 16, 2013 3:36 AM

I have found that students will reinforce the rules with each other when they have actively participated in creating them. Just have to make sure that they do it respectfully. This is a win-win for everyone.

Great tips on how to facilitate collaborative learning. Learners that work collaborativley are engaged in their learning and have better learning outcomes. 

Marina Cousins's curator insight, April 10, 8:06 PM

I liked this article, as it highlighted to me the importance of collaborative learning is much better than individual learning.  As I have mentioned several times, the learning and assessment that takes place within my workplace has a strong behaviourist foundation of learning and repeating key words and actions to pass an assessment (it is a very individual approach to learning).

 

Many of my colleagues view this experience of learning & assessment in a negative way.  What are some of the ways to overcome this negative view of learning?

 

After reading this article, I will seriously consider using a collaborative learning style within my workplace (if I get the opportunity).  The advantage of using real world problems or clinical incidents is that it offers the learner the opportunitity to improve their critical thinking skills and problem-solving ability.  

 

Therefore, by using collaborative learning you can apply the following learning theories of cognitivism, constructivism, objectivism.

Hazel Kuveya's curator insight, April 10, 9:22 PM

Keeping the groups at moderate levels will ensure an effective exchange of ideas and participation in all involved, I can echo the same statement that two heads are better than one. It is also interesting to learn that collaborative teams attain higher level thinking and preserve information for longer periods as compared to  their individual counterparts., yes the use of technology makes collaborative learning manageable.

Google Drive with its many functionalities works now the best for me. For example collaboration on documents is very smooth, think about many combinations: teacher-student, student-student, supervisor-supervisee...

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 31, 2013 9:56 PM

How often do you hear a student say "I don't know." Here are five alternative suggestions that you might offer up to your students. Why? If we want our students to become critical thinkers they need to be able to ask questions. Rather than accepting the answer "I don't know" have the student think a bit more and come up with a better question. Click through to the post to see three additional questions and share your own if you have other suggestions.

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic)

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic) | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"Parents are famous for their ability to reminisce about days gone by. It always starts the same way, “Back when I was your age, we used to walk 10 miles to school barefoot—in the snow.” Or, “I remember when school lunch cost a nickel.”

Thanks to the integration of technology, schools, and classrooms in particular, have changed so dramatically in recent years that some parents might not even recognize them. It’s a classic case of old school versus new school."

This infographic looks at how the integration of technology into schools has made major changes. Learn how many parents used software in school compared to their teenage students; how collaboration has changed; if technology is important to student success (parents view) and much more. If you have an upcoming Open House this might be an infographic that would elicit comments from parents.

Will Tablets to Replace Textbooks in Schools? | Teach.com | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
Secretary of Education Arne Duncan says every school should replace textbooks with tablets or e-reader devices. What does this mean for your students' learning?

This post explores cost analysis and learning considerations. Did you know that South Korea has been using digital textbooks and report that their students have "graduation rates of six to eight percent higher than students with no access." Other studies raise questions about retention with digital access to textbooks. Without question, this is a hot button topic. For more information click through to the post.
