Learning is about making connections...

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 26, 10:27 AM

One of the timeless principles is making connections. That explains connectivism as an extension of constructivism rather than a stand alone theory. We need to connect to people, to the subjects, and the world as if they were living. That is what motivates us and fuels the learning.

[Slideshare] The impact of Innovation

Innovation is driven by hope and fear. By humans dreaming of a better place. Emerging technologies are maintaining scale and deflation, accelerating the pace of change, having a profound impact on how societies, institutions, businesses and individuals interact. The emergence of new identities, facilitated by technologies and enabled by new values, is the new revolution. A peer-to-peer revolution. - See more at: http://www.innovationexcellence.com/blog/2014/01/16/the-impact-of-innovation/#sthash.WKS2DYdX.dpuf

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 6, 5:36 PM

Jackie Gerstein returns with a post on Hope and Optimism, another 21st century skill. Why hope and optimism? There are important skills/characteristics in this area:

* Positive View About the Future

* Can Do Attitude

* Personal Agency

* Engage in Positive Self Talk

* Belief in Ability to Solve Problems

* Belief in One’s Ability to Impact Positively on One’s Situation.

* Maintaining Perspective

* Sense of Efficacy

She then provides information and links to articles that have researched how hope and optimism impact students' lives in many areas, research based guidelines on how to build skills of hope in students, and more. This post provides much food for thought.

Why and how you should get your students to collaborate and communicate?

Why and how you should get your students to collaborate and communicate? | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it

Why is interaction so important in education? It is the key to learning, especially when you are using technology, preventing students to be passive thus engaging them to be active. Interaction requires the student to work with learning content. Interaction is needed for navigation and exploration of learning content, to get feedback after assessment, but communication with peers or teachers is the ultimate interaction.[fb_button]

Why?Online courses are usually built for self-paced learning, where efficiency depends on students’ motivation and self-discipline. That’s why the use of communication in online learning is very useful.Online collaboration or discussion might be less frightening than speaking up in the classroom to the introverted students or students that are less confident.Participating in group discussions, in classroom or online, helps students know each other better, and builds relationships and classroom community.When learning, students often relate more to their peers than their teacher, so a fellow student that understands the lesson better, might better answer their question.Students learn through explaining things to their peers.The concept of Community of inquiry is based on the premise that knowledge is necessarily embedded within a social context and, thus, requires intersubjective agreement among those involved in the process of inquiry for legitimacy. This means that for the best learning experience, we need three different presences: teaching (the teacher sets climate and provides content – lessons), social (the students who debate) and cognitive (which is the knowledge that participants communicate among themselves). Online technology can help us greatly, when we are trying to build this kind of environment, which is especially applicable to blended learning.

What do you think are the ten most important developments in human history? What do you think your students would think? This infographic is from Norwich University Online and provides their view but I would suspect that our students might come up with a different list (as would many teachers). This would be a great topic for students to research and create their own infographic...which would probably include items not included in this one!

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom | MidMarket Place | Scoop.it

"In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

But lost in this clinical sequence are the Habits of Mind that (often predictably) lead to success or failure in the mastery of given standards. In fact, it is not in the standards or assessments, but rather these personal habits where success or failure — in academic terms — actually begin."

Many of us discuss Bloom's taxonomy with students (although we may not refer to it using that terminology) but how many of us talk about Habits of Mind with our students. This post explores how we can use habits of mind to help our students providing suggestions as to how you might help your students learn them.
