The Best Online Learning Games Of 2012 — So Far

"In order to make it on this list, games had to:

 

* be accessible to English Language Learners.


* provide exceptionally engaging content.


* not provide access to other non-educational games on their site, though there is one on this list that doesn’t quite meet this particular criteria.


* be seen by me [Larry Ferlazzo] during 2011. So they might have been around prior to this time, but I’m still counting them in this year’s list."

21st Century Schools or 21 Century Learning?

21st Century Schools or 21 Century Learning? | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

Just let me start off by saying that the term “21 Century Learning” still drives me crazy. If you think about it, have we progressed in our thoughts about what learning should look like and could be in the last 10 years? What about in the next 50 years? Will “21st Century Learning” be the same or will we still promote the same skills? Who knows but I am sure that our world will continue to change significantly.

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"

 

"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.

 

Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."

 

This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.

 

And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"

 

What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

How to turn students into curators.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 5, 2015 10:14 PM

We often ask our students to create annotated bibliographies, and this focuses on their capacity to evaluate and make decisions about the validity, reliability and relevance of sources they have found. using Scoop.it, we can ask them to do much the same thing, but they will publish their ideas for an audience, and will also be able to provide and use peer feedback to enhance and tighten up their thinking. This is relevant to any curriculum area. Of course it is dependent on schools being able to access any social media, but rather than thinking about what is impossible, perhaps we could start thinking about what is possible and lobbying for change.

Personalized Learning - It's All About Learning

Personalized Learning - It's All About Learning | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

T. Henriksen includes excerpts from an #edchat that took place recently.

 

The great debate in education in British Columbia seems to be Personalized Learning or Personalized Education. The focus for the chat was based on the following question:

 

“What do we mean by the personalization of education & is it desirable & achievable today?”

 

Many of the participants shared their thought and tweets on the meaning of Personalized Learning.  Here are just a few:

 

"To me, personalized learning is really about choice: choice in topics (or strand of a topic), choice in how students want to learn about a topic, and choice in how students want to demonstrate their learning."

 

tweet by @stephe1234 “Student engagement increases when goal setting, passion based learning, making a contribution, and ownership are high.”

 

"Some questions for you….

> What does Personalized (or personal) learning mean to you?

> What is necessary to make this a reality in today’s schools?

> What about the curriculum?"

 

IMHO (BB)

Personalized education implies something done to learners. Either by the teacher, the curriculum or from the powers above. Adaptive courseware refers to algorithms adjusting to how a learner responds to a question based on previous questions. The curriculum does not take into account how the learner learns best.

 

Personalized learning refers to the type of learning environment the teacher designs that encourages learners to take ownership of their learning.

 

Personal learning implies the learner owns and drives their learning. The teacher is a partner in learning guiding them as they meet their fullest potential.

The Film | Celebrate What's Right With the World | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"'Celebrate What’s Right with the World” is a film I [Dewitt Jones] made to help folks approach life with confidence, grace and celebration.

 

The stories and lessons it includes came from my years as a photographer with National Geographic. Those years gave me a perspective that changed my life and other lives as well.

 

Because it turns out that Celebrate has become one of the most successful training films ever produced. That’s not me, folks, that’s the message. That’s just a lot of people knowing in their hearts that there’s a better, more positive way of looking at the world. That celebration really can be a way of life. So, please, enjoy the film. Then go out and celebrate what’s right with the world!'"

Report on the Re-use and Adaptation of Open Educational Resources

Executive Summary


Open Educational Resources (OER) are a relatively new phenomenon which is fast gaining academic credibility as well as the attention of policy makers on a global scale. With increased funding by governmental and non-governmental organisations paired with generous philanthropy, the volume of rich OER available freely to the masses has grown exponentially. As with any new academic movement, the initial challenge for the OER movement was to spread this new philosophy into mainstream academia whereby the use of OER in teaching and learning becomes accepted practice. With strong advocacy by Open Distance Learning (ODL) institutions buttressed by organisations such as the Commonwealth of Learning (COL) and UNESCO, OER is currently achieving this objective and is rapidly gaining acceptance as a credible source of knowledge in many an academic community.

 

The whole philosophy of OER rests on a foundation consisting of two fundamental concepts which are (i) free and open access to knowledge; and (ii) the ability to freely adapt and re-use existing pieces of knowledge. Even though the OER movement has been quite successful in firmly planting the first concept in the academic community, the second concept of re-use and adaptation is still to take flight on a larger scale. Although there are many inhibitors to the wider adoption of the re-use concept of OER, one of the major inhibitors is the current lack in capacities among the various stakeholders to effectively utilise existing technologies to adapt and re-use OER. This in turn has created a community of passive OER consumers who are not contributing to the expansion of the movement.

 

The objectives of this report are to (i) explore the current technology landscape with respect to both proprietary as well as Free and Open-source Software (FOSS) technologies; (ii) identify techniques, actual and in development, for re-use of OER materials; and (iii) discuss the implementation in the context of a typical ODL agency.

 

This peer-reviewed report is a detailed catalogue of technologies available to teachers as well as learners for the re-use of OER material in the forms of text, HTML, audio, video and data. It also compares the technologies based on access, openness, usability and availability. The report will serve as a resource for teachers and learners for re-using OER mater.

15 Secrets of the Most Successful Self-Learners

15 Secrets of the Most Successful Self-Learners | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"For many curious folks, their impassioned yearning to soak up as much of the world’s wonders as possible completely transcends the boundaries of a traditional classroom. Armed with an insatiable lust for knowledge, they set out to acquire it on their own terms, although a few pointers obviously can’t hurt before departure and landing! Not every possible technique will necessarily stick with all self-motivated learners, of course, but the only way to find out is to test them. Try some of the following and experiment with what works in a more independent educational setting.

 

Take advantage of open source and courseware

 

Learn for free via resources like iTunes U, YouTube EDU, Open Culture, MIT Open Courseware, and many, many more examples of open source and courseware. These free (or low-cost, in some cases) offerings provide everything from overviews to entire classes for self-motivated learners wanting to pick up pretty much any subject imaginable. Run searches for a particular area of interest (along with “open source” or “open coursework,” of course) and see what all is available.

 

Set clear, attainable goals

 

Because self-directed learning doesn’t involve a formalized syllabus, it’s up to the individuals themselves to whip up their own solid goals. Realistic, solid goals, of course. Make sure to outline what all needs to be done in order to achieve them and allow for some flexibility. And after crossing off the first round, start establishing more challenging follow-ups. Let them grow off one another in order to receive the most comprehensive look at the subject possible."

Memory Test: A History Of U.S. Citizenship Education and Examination

"Background/Context: While much has been written about the history of immigration and naturalization in the United States, few scholars have looked at the history of citizenship education and testing. The small body of literature on the subject has primarily focused on World War I-era Americanization efforts and, as such, has excluded later periods. Further, while it has looked at citizenship education programs, it has usually done so without considering the context of the high stakes exam that immigrants must pass in order to become citizens.

Purpose/Objective/Research Question/Focus of Study: Each year, tens of thousands of would-be American citizens set out to conquer the U.S. citizenship test. To do so, they must be prepared to answer 10 fact-oriented questions about American government, history, and geography selected by a naturalization examiner from a master list of 100. A score of six correct answers earns citizenship. Consequently, aspiring citizens memorize the number of Amendments to the Constitution, the branches of government, the names of three of the original American colonies, and the location of the Statue of Liberty. Most immigrants pass.

This article seeks to understand the roots of the memory test that currently serves as America’s gauge of fitness for citizenship. In looking back over 100 years of history, it seeks to explore how a once highly pluralistic approach to education and an anxiety-producing system of testing conducted by naturalization courts became what we know today. By asking how we got here, it also implicitly asks whether we want to maintain this status quo or seek out change."

On the Allure Of Ostriches And New Paths In Climate Communication

On the Allure Of Ostriches And New Paths In Climate Communication | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"The study, published last November in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, substantiates that when confronted with a distressing and complex issue that they know very little about, such as climate change, people are motivated to avoid learning more about it. Shepard and Kay, the authors of his paper call this 'motivated avoidance.' Their article explains how an 'ignorance is bliss' philosophy may thwart important social information from penetrating the minds of the public.

 

So, if current educational strategies turn people off and motivate them to defer to government authorities or scientists to make decisions rather than trusting themselves to think critically or to change the world, how do we teach about troubling topics? A key to teaching youth about climate change is to teach critical thinking and to teach youth to take action on what they have learned.

 

The ability of a person to believe in their power to make change in their own life and in the world at large is called self-efficacy. In his book 'Self Efficacy: The Exercise of Control,' Albert Bandura of Stanford University’s Department of Psychology documents “efficacy beliefs” in people’s lives and how they affect personal and social change. 'Efficacy beliefs shape the outcomes people expect their efforts to produce… 'People of low self-efficacy are easily convinced of the futility of effort in the face of impediments. Those of high self- efficacy view impediments as surmountable through perseverance.'"

7 Habits of Highly Effective Tech-leading Principals

7 Habits of Highly Effective Tech-leading Principals | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it

"The conventional wisdom in education is that any school reform--be it curriculum, instruction, assessment, or teacher professionalism--is most likely to take hold in schools that have strong leadership. The same holds true for technology. Any educator will tell you the most successful implementation of technology programs takes place in schools where the principal sees him or herself as a technology leader.


'The role of the principal is one of facilitation and modeling behavior,' remarks Robert Farrace, senior director of communications and development with the National Association of Secondary School Principals. 'The principal who models these behaviors is going to be able to inspire innovation in their school much more effectively than a principal who simply requires that teachers use technology, or collaborate, or take risks.'


T.H.E. Journal recently surveyed principals from across the country to identify the attributes they think a principal who wants to be an effective technology leader should demonstrate. The consensus settled on the seven attributes most frequently mentioned. They constitute our list of "Seven Habits." At the same time, we solicited Farrace's expert insight into why each of these habits is important.


We then spoke with three highly effective technology leaders among the ranks of principals to see how these habits have led to the successful implementation of educational technology in their schools. Patrick Larkin, of Burlington High School in Burlington, MA, and Eric Sheninger, of New Milford High School in New Milford, NJ, were recently recognized as NASSP Digital Principals. Lyn Hilt is both the principal and technology integrator at Brecknock Elementary School in Denver, PA. She and Larkin will speak on the topic of 21st century leadership at ISTE 2012.

10 Tips For Workshop Presenters And Any Teachers.…

"I [Edna Sackson] once spent a whole day in a professional development workshop for second language teachers and I learned how to make a fold-up book. That’s all. Nothing else.

When I’m not stimulated and challenged in a learning context, I tend to get impatient and have to watch my body language, so as not to make my dissatisfaction obvious to the whole room. As an educator, though, there should always be something I can learn. If the content doesn’t engage me, I can learn by observing the presenters…

Throughout the excellent IB Workshop Leader Training, the trainers, consciously and unconsciously, modelled presentation techniques. Trainee workshop leaders were encouraged to stand out front and present in groups. It was inspiring to see such passionate educators find creative, engaging ways to share their knowledge and learning. It was an opportunity to observe, watch, listen… and learn."

Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos

Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos | Learning, Teaching & Leading Today | Scoop.it
"Last week, I [Catlin Tucker] read an interesting blog post by Shelley Blake-Plock titled "The Problem with TED ed." It got me thinking about the flipped classroom model and how it is being defined."

"I wish the conversation focused more on what actually happens in a flipped classroom. If we move lecture or the transfer of knowledge online to create time and space in the physical classroom, how are we using that time to improve learning for students? What is our role as the teacher in the flipped classroom? How are we maximizing the potential of the group when students are together to design collaborative, creative, student-centered activities and assignments? This is the part I want to hear more about!

For me, the beauty of the flipped classroom lies in the simple realization that instruction can take place in different mediums. We are no longer limited to a class period or a physical classroom. We have the opportunity to match the instructional activity with the environment that makes the most sense. Ramsey Musallam, defines 'flip teaching' as 'leveraging technology to appropriately pair the learning activity with the learning environment.' This flexibility is why technology has the potential to be so transformative in education."
