BYOT and one-to-one initiatives are literacy initiatives | The Accomplished Teacher

BYOT and one-to-one initiatives are literacy initiatives | The Accomplished Teacher | Media Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

By Patrick Larkin

 

"As a school leader who recently sold my community on the importance of moving to a one-to-one environment where every student has access to a web-based device, I believe strongly that our students will be more literate than students in other schools who do not have access to web-enabled devices. A look at the world outside of our schools and the technological resources being accessed in so many professions that allow people to work “smarter” is a clear indication of the track that our students need to be on in order to be able to function in the “real world.”

 

The biggest stumbling block in schools even if we can get the devices is the proficiency level of the adults in the building in utilizing the technology resources effectively. This is not meant to be an indictment of educators, but it is a critical question that we all have to look at, assess, and then move forward. Technological tools/resources can assist educators in some of our biggest undertakings (i.e. common core standards integration, teacher evaluation, providing relevant professional development, etc.). However, because so many educators in schools are not comfortable with the most modern literacy skills we are not able to make better progress."

Fostering learning communities among teachers [pdf]

According to the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS), teachers across countries overwhelmingly desire more professional development.

 

• In all TALIS countries, there are low rates of co-operative professional development and collaborative teaching practice.


• Countries could use professional development to effectively and efficiently build and improve professional learning communities in schools.

"For students at the K-12 or university level, the school library can be the most important stop on a research journey, whether it's the first destination or the last. In order to keep up with modern challenges, some of the most innovative campus media centers in the U.S. are looking for ways to use technology to make the learning process smoother—both in person and remotely. Here are a few of their best ideas and what their tech is doing to impact the research experience."

Troubling Stats on Adult Literacy | Inside Higher Ed

Troubling Stats on Adult Literacy | Inside Higher Ed | Media Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

Eight years ago, a national survey on adult literacy offered data on the extent to which Americans -- even those with college credentials -- were declining in their proficiency to do the basic kinds of reading people use in everyday life. The finding, published just as President Bush and his education secretary, Margaret Spellings, were cranking up a national commission on the state of higher education, was often cited as evidence of the failings of colleges and universities.

 

A study released today could have a similar effect, because it not only questions Americans' literacy, but also taps into concerns in some quarters about the country's declining standing in the world.

 

The Survey of Adult Skills by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development shows that despite having higher than average levels of educational attainment, adults in the United States have below-average basic literacy and numeracy skills.

 

The U.S. ranked 16th out of 23 countries in literacy proficiency, 21st in numeracy proficiency, and 14th in problem solving in technology-rich environments, according to the OECD survey.

 

“It’s a worrisome result and it’s another reminder that we are not doing our job when it comes to education here, particularly with adults,” said Mary Alice McCarthy, a senior policy analyst for the education policy program at New America Foundation.

Drora Arussy's curator insight, July 29, 2013 4:41 AM

Another wonderful example of a use of the flipped classroom - calculus. By allowing for some lectures to be done on an individual basis while students may repeat, slow down, speed up, pause, review, respond and all that while the teacher is free to work individually with students, incrate th larning t h next level, help facilitate their discussions and intersts. The transfer to language study is so evident- imagine not spending hours in the classroom reteaching the grammar topics in foreign language, but instead answering individual pointed questions and facilitating conversations that incorporate those concepts. many of us went the route of no grammar only to see many students need it, particularly the older students. A flipped classroom allows for the possibility of individual progress while not stopping a whole class.

For those using this in history - flipping must free up time and mind space for collaborative thought and projects and some wonderful discussions!

Recent Policies Undermining Teacher Professionalism

Recent Policies Undermining Teacher Professionalism | Media Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

"According to the recent MetLife survey results, teacher job satisfaction has dropped considerably over the past dozen years. Moreover, the least-satisfied teachers are those in schools that experienced recent declines in professional development and collaboration opportunities. As a new policy brief released today points out, such outcomes are the foreseeable result of three of today’s most trendy policies: policies that evaluate teachers based on annual gains in students’ standardized test scores, fast-track teacher preparation and licensure programs, and the use of narrowly focused curriculum materials. Education reform advocates frequently assert a desire to increase the professional status of teaching, but this new policy brief concludes that these policies have the likely opposite effect of de-professionalizing teachers and teaching." | via National Education Policy Center

Common Core as an Opportunity for Technology-Driven Youth Empowerment | ZeroDivide.org

Common Core as an Opportunity for Technology-Driven Youth Empowerment | ZeroDivide.org | Media Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

This fall, most states will continue implementing Common Core State Standards (http://www.corestandards.org/) with the hope of improving educational outcomes for America’s students. Common Core has been called, “[W]hat may be the most far-reaching experiment in American educational history.” Educators, parents, elected officials and others are expressing strong opinions about the standards, ranging from strong support (from conservatives as well as progressives), to tentative approval, to regret and anger.

 

Luckily, there is at least one area of (relative) agreement around the standards: The emphasis on technology integration is crucial for student success. (For a comprehensive list of the technology-related Common Core standards, see this document from the Fresno County Office of Education.)

 

Support for educational technology is strong and growing, and it’s easy to see why. As educator Ashley Lauren Samsa writes in her recent Guardian post, “Being technologically competent is now considered a vital life skill, not to mention something today's students need if they are ever going to be employable.” However, Samsa reminds us, we must ensure that technology is used as a tool to power creativity and not merely a career prep mechanism. 

 

One way to ensure technology is used to inspire, connect and encourage students is to empower students themselves to lead the way. There are plenty of websites and off-the-shelf solutions educators can use to integrate technology into standards-aligned curricula, which is key, but it is also important for teachers to cultivate student creativity and peer-to-peer learning (and student-to-teacher skill transferral) by allowing students to showcase their technology skills.

 

Today’s K-12 students were born into a connected world, and they have a fundamentally different relationship with technology than the majority of their teachers. In fact, research shows that they learn differently as a result of their technology immersion. Results from the Digital Youth Project and other innovative interventions underscore the importance of peer-to-peer learning for today’s students.

21st century Learning: Preparing Students For Complex Futures

21st century Learning: Preparing Students For Complex Futures | Media Education in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

How do we prepare students for 21st century learning? The Common Core Standards call for "more rigor, complex reasoning, problem solving, and critical thinking than traditional learning." How do we teach so that students meet these new standards? What professional development will need to be done so that teachers may provides their students with the necessary skills? As the titleof the article states, "How do we prepare students for compelex futures?"

The post looks at a variety of materials that discuss skills and strategies that one might consider. In 2008 Tony Wagner suggested 7 areas that were critical for students to learn:

* Problem-solving and critical thinking

* Collaboration across networks and leading by influence

* Agility and adaptability

* Initiative and entrepreneurship

* Effective written and oral communication

* Accessing and analyzing information

* Curiosity and imagination

Materials from David Conley regarding "key cognitive strategies", Costa and Kallick and habits of mind, and other dispositions are also discussed.

The last section of the post looks at "a new paradigm: on-going, formative, self-assessment."

Are you interested in learning more about how grit is a 21st century skill? Jackie Gerstein provides an in-depth look at grit in this post. You will find an image with a great definition, a TED Talk by Angela Duckworth on grit, as well as a link to a quiz that allows you to measure your grit level compared to others, and a list of some of the "characteristics or dispositions of Grit."

Perhaps you are asking yourself how can I work grit into my classroom? 

For example, project based learing, or having students work on independent study projects (think passion-driven) provide opportunities for students to use some of the dispositions discussed, such as tenacity, self-control, self-discipling and long-term goal oriented. 

As always, there is a robust list of additional resources.
