Re-imagining Schooling: Weaving the Picture of School as an Affinity Space for Twenty-First Century Through a Multiliteracies Lens

Re-imagining Schooling: Weaving the Picture of School as an Affinity Space for Twenty-First Century Through a Multiliteracies Lens | Learning Trends | Scoop.it

Currently, evolving ways of communication, interpretation and creation of meaning are challenging the ways people view themselves and the world, altering their learning demands and needs. Closely related to this process of change is the need to re-conceptualize schooling.

Exams aren’t getting any harder to take – but the pressure on young students is

Exams aren’t getting any harder to take – but the pressure on young students is | Learning Trends | Scoop.it
Examinations are stressful, and can be extremely challenging – this is undeniable. I always found that the most hair-raising part of the examination season was the space of time following the exam when everyone gathered in the common room and compared their answers.

Now this post-exam interrogation is carried out at a national level through Twitter, Facebook and other forms of social media. Thousands of students converge on the internet and compare their answers, discuss how hard they found the exam and despair in union about how they’re definitely not getting into University.

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable

For students, the iPad is the ultimate computer - @Mashable | Learning Trends | Scoop.it
BROOKLYN, New York – I’m sitting on the floor at The Academy of Talented Scholars (PS 682) in Bensonhurst, watching kindergarteners create robots on an iPad.

It’s one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen, and I don’t even like children.

The exercise is part of the curriculum led by co-teachers Stacy Butsikares and Allison Bookbinder, focused on helping the 5- and 6-year-old students come up with ways to solve problems.

The first step is to identify a problem happening in the school. The kindergarteners come up with ideas like kids horsing around in the lunch line, or not throwing trash away properly, or making too much noise at recess. Students are instructed to create a robot that could solve the problem, and draw the robot on a piece of paper.

Once the robot is sketched out, the real fun begins. Using the app The Robot Factory, these pint-sized problem-solvers bring their robot ideas to life.

Of course I've done my best throughout the year. I've submitted my lesson plans on time and attended all of the professional and staff development. I've also documented efforts to help struggling students, completed my extra duty assignments, and conducted parent conferences over the phone and in person. I've differentiated lessons for special-needs students. I think I've done a good job. But what does my evaluator think?

John Dalziel's curator insight, May 20, 3:30 AM
BioDigital Human lets users check out every inch of the human body in a Google Maps-like interface. 
It’s a fascinating, detailed look at every nook and cranny of the male or female body, including... 
■ a bare-bones skeletal body, 
■ individual organs, 
■ muscles, 
■ veins and arteries, 
 ...to a fully fleshed out body. 
From a menu on the left, users can choose what system they want to look at (like the respiratory system or the cardiovascular system) and only that will be highlighted, along with a clear explanation of what it does. 
 In the same way, the “Conditions” tab highlights common ailments or medical procedures like an angioplasty or diabetic kidney problems, complete with a detailed explanation. 
NOTE: BioDigital Human has a premium version, but the free version will, for most users, be good enough.

Teacher empathy reduces student suspensions, Stanford research shows | Stanford News Press Release | Learning Trends | Scoop.it
When teachers think empathically, and not punitively, about misbehaving students, they cultivate better relationships and help reduce discipline problems, Stanford research shows.

 

The findings showed that giving teachers an opportunity to express their empathic values – to understand students’ perspectives and to sustain positive relationships with students when they misbehave – improved student-teacher relationships and discipline outcomes.
