Innovations in Education - Teacher Creativity Leads to Student Creativity

Innovations in Education - Teacher Creativity Leads to Student Creativity | My Blog | Scoop.it

One way to design a transfer task is to imagine what someone in “the real world” might do with that knowledge and skill – what kind of work would they be doing? 

 

Then, build a plausible scenario where students can be in those roles, and/or make it real by having their final product, thinking, and ideas shared with an authentic audience.

For Educators, the Importance of Making Meaningful Connections

For Educators, the Importance of Making Meaningful Connections | My Blog | Scoop.it
By Matt Levinson It's connected educator month.

 

There’s a flurry of activity among teachers and administrators looking to connect through Twitter and other social media to advance their learning, especially as a new school year looms.

As schools gear up and prepare for a new school year with technology increasingly ubiquitous, now’s the time to consider how schools can create a positive impact with technology.

 

Professor Alec Couros captures the essential element for schools to keep in mind as they move forward with technology initiatives. In an interview with Howard Rheingold for Digital Media and Learning, he comments on the need to focus on “what will endure,” the importance of connections and relationships to help foster, build and sustain the life of the “networked” teacher.

Alvin Toffler: Reshaping Learning from the Ground Up | Edutopia | My Blog | Scoop.it

Forty years after he and his wife, Heidi, set the world alight with Future Shock, Alvin Toffler remains a tough assessor of our nation's social and technological prospects. Though he's best known for his work discussing the myriad ramifications of the digital revolution, he also loves to speak about the education system that is shaping the hearts and minds of America's future. We met with him near his office in Los Angeles, where the celebrated septuagenarian remains a clear and radical thinker.

It requires us to persevere in our thinking and our efforts – without threat of humiliation or being labelled stupid

 

It requires to move beyond superficial knowledge and move toward deep understanding.

 

Perhaps if we want to see some of the educational reforms that come with “unlearning”, we need to start creating the conditions for “unlearning” for many of our educational partners

 

Still figuring it out…..

Unlearning is the real challenge here ... the learning comes easy after that.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, March 16, 2013 6:58 PM

"When we unlearn something it requires us to be vulnerable to our own fallibility.

It requires us to collaborate and be open to others’ thoughts and opinions

It requires us to be to critical thinkers and push the limits of our preconceived ideas.

It requires us to “walk a mile in someone else’s shoes”.

It requires moving beyond the limitations of “I” and move towards the power of “we”

It requires us to persevere in our thinking and our efforts – without threat of humiliation or being labelled stupid."

Such individual and group attributes require a trusting collegial culture amongst teachers which requires continual effort and focus.

The "Kid Blog' is a safe and effective way to allow your students to keep up to date blogs in a secure evironment. With these blogs students can not only post their own blogs, but oarticipate in discussions.

I feel this is a gerat resourse to use within the classroom, as students and teachers can keep track of students posts and especially look at their progress throughout the year.

Using Classroom Technology to Offer Real-World Experiences

Using Classroom Technology to Offer Real-World Experiences | My Blog | Scoop.it
By bringing tech into the classroom, educators hope to acclimate students to posteducation experiences early on.

 

Experience, they say, is the best teacher. And when it comes to introducing technology to students, it’s best to quickly get past the theoretical and into the practical.

 

Using the classroom to mimic the real world has long been a tenet of education, especially in primary education, where role-playing is prominent.

 

The Hellerup School, an innovative Danish school, is skipping the controlled environment of typical classrooms and is opting for a very grown-up approach to education. The school gives its students free rein over their use of technology, without artificial constraints, in much the same way adults have access to technology as they see fit.

Four Traits of Collaborative Leaders | My Blog | Scoop.it

Human beings have been collaborating since the first mastodon hunt, but today there is more collaboration than ever. From the marketplace to the battlefield, no one’s going it alone.

 

The difference now is that we are where Marshall McLuhan and Alvin Toffler said we’d be — the world is an electronic village in which the power of small groups to disrupt the status quo is soaring and response times are fast approaching zero. Digital technology has changed everything.
