Personalized Learning and SEL: Why Meeting Students Where They Are Matters | library life | Scoop.it

Now study after study is showing that social-emotional-learning (SEL) skills, such as empathy, self-regulation, and cooperation, may be even more valuable for students' short- and long-term success than academic content knowledge.

It is so important to meet the student's needs, whatever that may be, to improve learning goals. We must look at the whole child and not just the brain to meet their needs.

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School?

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School? | library life | Scoop.it

The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.

Et le RTBF nous dit d'être curieux. Voilà leur diction revisité. Pour que nos étudiants soient curieux, il faut encore l'être soi-même et adapter la manière de l'évaluer.

Curiosity projects, MakerSpaces, Passion projects, asking questions and seeking answers...all mind-expanders.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 3, 11:51 AM

Children, and for that matter teachers, bring curiousity with them. Teachers can help create contexts where that curiousity remains vibrant.

Is It Plagiarism or Collaboration?

Is It Plagiarism or Collaboration? | library life | Scoop.it

Perhaps instead of focusing our concerns on technology as a wonderful aid to plagiarizers, we should focus on its ability to foster creativity and collaboration, and then ask ourselves (we are the clever adults here) how we can incorporate those elements into our formalized assessments.

There is a very thin line between plagiarism and collaboration where group assessments are concerned. I also feel that in this digital age, the type of assessments, activities and questions should be re-defined and reworked. I also try to provide "wrappers" in the class especially on ethics.

Se as licenciatura não mudarem - e radicalmente - os seus docentes permanecerão fazenão a escola sem tecnologia (digital). No dia em que não mais houver motivos para os formadores de formadores não usarem essa tecnologia, os professores das escolas da Educação Básica também não os terão. Carência na formação é a primeira peça do dominó a ser derrubada.

Rather than gauging if the toilet has enough water, the soap bottle is full enough and the lights are the perfect level, your smart bathroom can ask, “How was your visit?” You can say “Good,” or perhaps, “Bad — there wasn’t enough soap.” This eliminates the need for so much tracking, and makes the experience feel more human. Ultimately, our devices will rely on our feedback just as much as data.
