Beginning the School Year: It’s About Connections Not Content

Beginning the School Year: It’s About Connections Not Content | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

By Jackie Gerstein

 

"Most classes, starting with about middle school, begin the school year with reviewing the content to be covered, expectations regarding grades, and other academic information provided by the teacher or instructor. The human or social element is often disregarded.

 

"What is interesting is that most learners enter the classroom wondering who is in the course. They want to know about the teacher and the people in the class not what material is to be covered. What this says to me as an educator is that it all begins with a social connection – between the educator and the learners, and between the learners themselves.

 

"Because of this belief, I begin all classes focusing on having the students make connections between themselves and me. I want students to learn about one another in a personal way. I want to learn about my students so my instructional strategies can be more personalized and tailored to their needs and interests. Beginning class with a focus on connections rather than content gives learners the following messages:"

Crowdsourcing in Your Classroom | Thoughtful Learning | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

By Smith

 

"How can you shift your classroom away from lecture and toward inquiry? You can get help from the modern phenomenon known as crowdsourcing—the practice of putting many minds to work on a single problem. Inquiry is, in effect, crowdsourcing in your classroom.

 

"The following four concepts from crowdsourcing can help you use more inquiry in your classroom."

Flipping The Classroom… A Goldmine of Research and Resources To Keep You On Your Feet

Flipping The Classroom… A Goldmine of Research and Resources To Keep You On Your Feet | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it
Many educators are beginning to become aware of the growing teaching method referred to as “Flipping The Classroom”. Simply put… the teacher provides videos for homework, while traditional home work is done in class under teacher supervision. Unfortunately this might be just too simplistic of a definition. Possible this is why using the words “simply put” may not be the best practice in explaining anything.

Sure it's an extensive page - the research section could be better with reference to papers dated back to 1998 and 2001. The section "Resources To Better Understand Flipping the Classroom" is good including info graphics and a good link to J. Gersteins http://usergeneratededucation.wordpress.com/2011/06/13/the-flipped-classroom-model-a-full-picture/
