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

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."

A few good scoops for us « NeverEndingSearch | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

I’ve been talking a lot about curating for and with students lately. As the curation movement gets stickier, more and more librarians and educators are joining.

 

So I tasked my very able practicum student Chrissy Sirianni to help me pick some Scoop.its to share, offering a taste of the kind of current awareness the tool provides for school library professionals.

60 Second Recap: Valuable Video Resource for ALL Students of Literature |

60 Second Recap: Valuable Video Resource for ALL Students of Literature | | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

"If you are a student or teacher of literature, and you aren’t already familiar with this resource, you owe it to yourself to check it out. For effective learning to occur in any classroom, it’s essential that information be presented in multiple formats. It’s just as important to offer a range of options for engagement. This site helps beautifully on both counts.

60 Second Recap is a web based resource, and an iOS app, that uses short video clips to introduce great literature in a manner that I suspect most learners find highly engaging. Each clip is well researched and skilfully written. Production quality is exceptional. The target audience may be high school students, but these videos completely engage this learner, and I haven’t been a high school student for more than 40 years!"

PBL Series… Driving Questions: Students Uncovering Amazing Content Through Inquiry

PBL Series… Driving Questions: Students Uncovering Amazing Content Through Inquiry | learning21andbeyond | Scoop.it

 "I really like Driving Questions. In fact, I like them so much more then Essential Questions. You might ask why? I think it just might be my affection for the revised Bloom’s Taxonomy. You may remember that in the revision the different levels were changed into action. In fact, I strongly believe that learning is a verb and is based on action. Take away the word “Question” and Driving is a verb loaded with action. The word “Essential” standing alone is only a word devoted to describing… a colorful but inactive adjective."

This is the first article of a series and discusses the concept of Driving Questions and how their importance in PBL. Links to additional resources are also available.
