What's the Maker Movement and Why Should I Care?

What's the Maker Movement and Why Should I Care? | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Maker classrooms are active classrooms. In active classrooms one will find engaged students, often working on multiple projects simultaneously, and teachers unafraid of relinquishing their authoritarian role. Collaboration between students is flexible and teachers experience a seamless metamorphosis between mentor, student, colleague, expert, and personal shopper, all in service of their learners."

The 4 Brain Essential Learning Steps - Edudemic | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Understanding how learning happens is a huge part of teaching. If you don’t understand what needs to happen for learning to occur, how can your students learn? We’ve heard it SO many times, especially as of late – you can’t just throw information at your students anymore, you have to teach them how to process it so that they can learn how to learn.

Great Teachers Don't Teach

Great Teachers Don't Teach | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

great teachers do not teach. They stack the deck so that students have a reason to learn and in the process can't help but learn mainly by teaching themselves. This knowledge then becomes permanent and cherished rather than illusory and irrelevant.

4 Stages: The Integration Of Technology In Learning

4 Stages: The Integration Of Technology In Learning | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

fully integrated and embedded in the learning process, technology can be transformative–and disruptive. Below the idea of technology in learning is framed in stages, from “on learning” and externally-directed, to “in learning,” and self-directed. This is not to imply that stage 1 is “bad” and that learners should always be given free-reign with powerful technology. The age of graduated release of responsibility model (show me, help me, let me), as always, holds true here as well.

for the love of learning: Learning hasn't changed

Learning is a field that is very trendy. There is always the latest greatest that everyone must do. Today this is “social learning” and “on the job learning.”

There is one problem with this. None of this stuff is ever new in any way. Learning hasn't changed in a million years. Did I say a million? Too conservative. How do chimp babies learn? Socially? Of course. They copy what their mothers do and what their playmates do. (Amazingly they do this without Facebook.)

Innovative Technology Doesn't Mean Instructionally Innovative

Innovative Technology Doesn't Mean Instructionally Innovative | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
Have you seen the latest mini tablet computer? It can shoot video, take photos, play music, send and receive email, and browse the web. Therefore, we must immediately buy one for every student and figure out how to use it in the classroom later.

Isn't this too often the paradigm in education? We jump on to what's trendy without stopping to consider how the tool can effectively be used in the classroom to promote high-quality learning.

I often suggest to educators that before they adopt a new technology tool, they should determine what they want students to learn. I often guide the discussion by referencing 21st century skills including:

• information literacy
• collaboration
• communication
• innovation/creativity
• problem solving
• responsible citizenship

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.

 

They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

The Role Of Student Choice In Connected Classrooms - Edudemic

The Role Of Student Choice In Connected Classrooms - Edudemic | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Our mainstream educational machine is fueled by the idea that adults know best—that adults must impart their knowledge to prepare students for a demanding world. Our responsibility as teachers is to teach students for their own good…a “good” that more and more of us are having difficulty understanding.

The Impact Of Technology On Curiosity

The Impact Of Technology On Curiosity | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

Gamification, notifications, content titles, click-throughs, likes, suggested videos, and other modern realities seek to, perhaps unwittingly, replace curiosity with artificial pathways that don’t just challenge a student to “stay on task,” but can seemingly discredit traditional research–and the work behind it–and study as stodgy, staid, or irrelevant.

Disrupt your teaching & try a radical change.

Disrupt your teaching & try a radical change. | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

A disruptive teacher can encourage (radical?) change in communities, connect students with mentors for purposes other than pure academic proficiency, and (playfully?) sabotage practices and policies in a school or district.

The kind of stuff that, while very Che Guevaran, will get you fired.

But teaching disruptively is different. Teaching disruptively has less to do with outright defiance and the undermining of practices in schools and district that range from good to well-intentioned to mediocre to abhorrent. Teaching disruptively is about reaching students in new ways–disrupting through digital platforms, for example–then turning them loose on the world.

Too Much Teaching, Too Little Learning

Too Much Teaching, Too Little Learning | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it

In my mind, there’s an enormous difference between teaching and learning. Teaching is when a professor stands up in front of the class and lectures for an hour while students zone out; perhaps a few will absentmindedly take notes. Learning, however — real learning — happens only when students get home at the end of the day and do their homework, review their notes, and make connections between what they learned and what they know.

Showing youtube videos in class, sending out teaching slides via twitter, and even prezi-powered presentations do not count as new teaching methodologies. Sorry. There is nothing wrong with using videos and twitter – I am doing it all the time, too. Its just that focusing on such new media and technologies can easily distract you fromreally adapting your teaching methodology to the new learning environment.

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Blooms Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | Learning With Social Media Tools & Mobile | Scoop.it
I think the narrowing pyramid also posits that our students need a lot more focus on factual knowledge than creativity, or analyzing, or evaluating and applying what they’ve learned. And in a Google-world, it’s just not true.
Here’s what I propose. In the 21st century, we flip Bloom’s taxonomy. Rather than starting with knowledge, we start with creating, and eventually discern the knowledge that we need from it.
