Plagiarism: Shaming or Educating? [VIDEO]

If a student has potentially plagiarized an assignment, is reporting it to shame and punish or is it to educate? Kevin Jones, Associate Director of the Online Region, grapples with this question while he discusses...Continue Reading » http://elearningfeeds.com/plagiarism-shaming-or-educating-video/

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Linguagem Virtual | 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.

“Self-Learning” is the New “Schooling”

“Self-Learning” is the New “Schooling” | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
The idea of “student-centered learning” coupled with “networked learning” has tossed the idea that all learning should only happen through schooling. No longer do classroom walls or school schedules dictate when high-quality learning occurs.

The Ugly Truth About Teachers Who Don’t Use Tech |#edchat #edtech | Linguagem Virtual | Scoop.it
What is the goal of using technology in the classroom? I’ve seen it done well, and done poorly. I’ll illustrate with two examples – my own son’s kindergarten and first grade teachers. When my son entered kindergarten, he had a well connected teacher. I could not have been more pleased. I had heard rave reviews […]

Hablar del sistema educativo finlandés es ya uno de los mantras recurrentes para intentar encontrar el secreto de los buenos resultados en las pruebas estandarizadas pero, más allá de PISA,... ¡hay tantas cosas que deberíamos replantearnos!

David Donat's curator insight, January 20, 2013 6:45 PM

Una vegada més les claus de l'èxit del sistema Finlandès ens venen a orientar en algunes coses que podríem canviar en el nostre sistema educatiu. Valoració social de la professió docent, de la importància de l'educació, eines per a treballar en condicions, confiança en els professionals i en els processos naturals d'aprenentatge de l'alumnat, ... Una cosa és adaptar els models de fora a la nostra idiosincràsia, però el que fem al nostre país amb l'educació no té nom!

Where do technology and teaching methods fit in a digital world?

 

...Considering this shift, more emphasis should be placed on analyzing the data at our fingertips, instead of simply remembering it. It is unlikely there will be a data blackout any time soon, so educators should train students in critical, analytical thinking and information processes instead of focusing on drilling facts and figures into memory.
