Beth Dichter's curator insight, Today, 8:00 AM

Check out this great visual on Project Based Learning (PBL)from Mia MacMeekin. It provides a look at the seven steps found in PBL. For each step she provides a number of ways for students to think about the specific process. What are the seven areas?

1. Start with a real life problem

2. Map it out

3. Prototype, prototype, prototype

4. Be creative

5. Think global

6. Join a challenge

7. Set goals

8. Create learning moments

Along the way she also makes some suggestions on what you should be doing as a teacher. If PBL is new to you (or your students) this would be a great visual to have your students recreate, where they may change words and add images to make it their own. Then hang it in your classroom and support them as they become experienced at project based learning.

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, Today, 9:47 AM

This is an interesting article that I think would especially apply to the technical communications community. I can tell you that my entire career has been nothing but unstable. Gone are the days where you spend so many years someplace and have the devout company loyalty and the mentorship to help you get ahead in that company. I've gotten to the point that while I still crave having a "secure" job (which for me means that I can stay there indefinitely, not be laid off, and am a full-time employee with all the benefits), I've accepted that is highly unlikely to happen anytime in the near future, if ever. I think I'm stuck in consultancy limbo forever. I've learned to make the most of it as best as I can. I am grateful that the current assignment I'm on is an indefinite assignment for the moment--it will be going into my third year in January 2015, and if I complete that year it will be tied with the longest period I've ever spent at any other job. I'm also grateful that I like where I am too. Three years at any one place isn't much. With the economic turmoil of the past few years, I don't see this trend going away. As the author of this article says, job stability is a roller coaster, and you have to be prepared for the ride. I recommend reading this article.

Reading John Dewey

John Dewey is arguably the greatest philosopher of education the world has seen. Unfortunately, for most of us, his stilted, formal prose causes unpleasant flashbacks to the dreary tomes of Philosophy 101. But he’s worth reading–and listening to–despite the pain. Here, for exa... http://elearningfeeds.com/reading-john-dewey/

Opetus 1.0 – 3.0 | Lyseo.org blogi | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Opetus on paperitonta ja kurssimateriaalina käytetään vuorovaikutteista e-oppikirjaa tai vapaasti netistä saatavilla olevia sisältöjä (esim. MOOC, opetus.tv jne.). Opetuksessa keskitytään luovuuteen, mielikuvitukseen, kriittiseen ajatteluun ja ongelmanratkaisuun sekä tämän vuosisadan taitojen edistämiseen, ja perustaidot omaksutaan nopeasti.

Kirjoitusta lukiessa mietin omaa opetustani  joskus aiemmin, nyt ja tulevaisuudessa.

 

Posteri "2000-luvun opetus" on ymmärrettävyydeltään sellainen, että sitä voi lukea eri-ikäinen oppilas tai koulumaailman asioita vähemmän tunteva. Juuri oikeanlainen.
