Making Student Thinking Visible: Metacognitive Practices in the Classroom | Center for Teaching | Vanderbilt University | Metawriting | Scoop.it

Many of the “Top 12” articles identified strategies for making student thinking visible not to just instructors, but also to their own learning processes. By intentionally uncovering how learners were thinking about discipline-specific concepts, students and instructors were able to discuss the ways in which this thinking was similar or different to the thinking of disciplinary experts.  Contemplating the epistemological question of “how do we know what we know?” brought novice thinking into contact with more sophisticated, expert ways of thinking within the discipline.

This is such an important point that we often miss when trying to improe school climate.

 

I really love the scenario at the beginning of this article... This is almost EXACTLY how we handle conflict between the kids in our own home and we learned this from the teachers at their school... The teachers (and students) refer to it as "Making Peace" with each other and the basics of it are: Use your WORDS, explain how someone else's actions made you FEEL, think about how to react differently next time, apologize to each other, shake hands or hug and forgive each other. 

 

But there is so much more to this article that is so important for us to understand if we want to positiely impact student/child behavior and actions.  We have to change our approach and our understanding of what they are experiencing...

Sue Beckingham's curator insight, March 28, 2013 10:23 AM

The Changing the Learning Landscape (CLL) Professional Development Programme offers exciting opportunities for academic staff and for those working in development and support roles to explore how learning technologies can enhance their work in practical and creative ways.

Through one-day events, workshops and online activities, participants can experience how innovative approaches to learning technologies can enhance both the staff and student experience of teaching and learning. All activities will draw on real-life examples and expertise in teaching and development staff in universities, FE colleges delivering HE, and from our CLL partners: the Leadership Foundation for Higher Education (LFHE), Association for Learning Technology (ALT), JISC, the National Union of Students(NUS) and the Staff and Educational Development Association (SEDA).

Peer Review

Peer Review | Metawriting | Scoop.it
Created by Laura Guertin, Pennsylvania State University Brandywine "For generations, the academic community has relied on peer review as a way of enhancing the knowledge base and encouraging serious scholarship. Peer review can offer many of the same benefit to students... [and] computers [can] mediate the interaction among peers." - Gehringer (2000)

 

Why use peer review - students improve science communication skills

Peer review is useful for instructors of large introductory-level courses that want to challenge their students to think critically, synthesize information, and communicate science in nontechnical language. Through use of technological tools, electronic peer review provides the option of not restricting the peer-review process to a particular location and/or time, while the grading load is lessened on an instructor.

Great to see interest coming back to the use of computer games again after our recent obsession with social networks.

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 6:57 AM

Games like SimCity immerse you in a world where 10 hours can feel like 20 minutes. If we could somehow make teaching that engaging, students would be thrilled to go to school everyday. How can we effectively use games in a manner where it has a purpose yet it also allows for learner creativity and individuality? How can we tied perfomance assessments into games? How can they fit within the busy school day? Many questions still need to be answered. This is a good start on how formative assessments can be used on gaming.

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning

Using The Power Of The Pair To Enhance Active Learning | Metawriting | Scoop.it
I remember when I first figured out the "power of the pair". I had walked onto our school library and the noise was way above what I would expect.

 

The Power Of The Pair

It’s not a ‘sit and be still’ classroom -and that means students are no longer viewed as a single learning ‘receptacle’. Be it concepts in the science lab, or reasoning for a development in world affairs their partner is always the first sounding board for that. They have a present and willing person to speak and listen to. We often switch partners, or move to larger groups, during activities but for the start/end of class students know who and where their ‘home partner’ is.

Though I do not have a Twitter, I find this very interesting.  I think that if teachers did end up using this the kids who do have a twitter would get more involved in the assignment, but I'm not sure what they'd do with the kids like me would do during this lesson.  Overall,  I think this is a really cool and unique idea that could probably done with other social networking sites aswell.
