How Making Thinking Visible Helps Teachers and Students - November Learning

How Making Thinking Visible Helps Teachers and Students - November Learning | ICT for languages EFL TEFL TESOL FLE | Scoop.it

In reality, transforming the culture of the classroom can be complicated and hard work and can take many steps. Pioneering schools and universities are moving to support a vision that students can tap their native creativity and curiosity, and their proclivity to social engagement with peers, to manage more of their own learning. One of the most difficult aspects of creating a culture of high-performing engagement is managing the shift of control from the educator to the learner. Another level of potential resistance is creating a team-based classroom culture from individual students working for their own grades to teams of students working to help one another


. Frankly, letting go of control can be very scary for professors and teachers who traditionally have been highly valued for their conductor-like ability to control the flow of knowledge in a classroom where every student receives the same content at the same time. The trick is to strike a balance between empowering students to own more of their own learning while the teacher directs the flow of learning. In this new balance, the role of the educators is more important than ever. All educators do not agree that technology has made their lives easier. What we need is to give them tools that can ease the workload while improving results.


Where to begin? I have selected two powerful digital tools that are very easy to use. Each one reveals how students are thinking with different patterns. Both are free — and both can support student engagement while better providing educators with insights into patterns of student thinking.Article Produced in Partnership with Cisco Education . One category of digital tools, making thinking visible, can give students a higher level of confidence to ask questions when they need help, or share their opinions and ideas with the rest of the class — leading to more thoughtful discussions. These same tools inform educators about how to plan for much more meaningful lessons. In the 1980s coming of age movie, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, one of the funniest scenes I remember (perhaps because I was a social studies teacher at the time) is the high school economics class with Ben [...]

I use FreshGrade on line portfolios for my classes it works for all content areas. I just get student and parent consent and keep everything professional and transparent. It makes online tutoring available in links I post for them as well as provides a place for students to store, document and have access to all they have done during the semester.
Jillian Schaibly's curator insight, July 25, 9:34 PM
Asking students in depth questions can help with a higher level of thinking. This can relate to a administrator with staff. If discussing a issues asking them in depth questions or making them dig deeper can create a higher level of thinking.
