February 2015: Connect Science Lessons to Real LifeYour students may often ask, “Why do we need to know this?” The next time they do, be prepared with answers embedded in these lessons and activities from NSTA Press books. With so many science stories in the news recently, teachers have ample opportunities this month to show students the connections between science lessons and real-world issues so they can know how to address challenges outside the classroom.   http://www.nsta.org/publications/archive-bookbeat.aspx

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 2, 2013 5:48 PM

Each student has a jagged learning profile. They have strengths, averages and challenges. If you design learning for the average, you design it for nobody. We have created learning environments where we can not expect learners to do what we want them to do.

 

The average hurts everyone. Designing average destroys talents in two ways:

> The existing educational environment can not challenge learners as it creates an environment where they become bored and sometimes dropout. 

> It means that your weaknesses will make it harder for you to see your talent.  

 

It is all about nurturing individual potential.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:16 AM

We learn more from disruptions and outliers, but we desparately want agreement.

Library Staff's curator insight, August 14, 2013 1:00 AM

Average is an interesting concept. Pinning students down to numbers or percentages in terms of what they can achieve does them a disservice and never tells the real story.

- Top 10 Sites/Apps for a Flipped Classroom | Learning ideas - Teaching ideas | Scoop.it

.A "Flipped Classroom" is a classroom that uses class time to do activities/lessons (guided by the teacher) and "homework" time for guided instruction, usually through video.  Basically, it turns a classroom upside down: the learning of a topic is done at home and then the applied practice or work is done at school.  With Mobile Learning and BYOD  becoming more mainstream, "Flipped Classroom" models are happening more and more, leading me to create my list of favorite tools for "flipping a classroom."
