Carlos Lizarraga Celaya's curator insight, July 3, 2013 10:20 AM

I see the power of engaging kids in science and technology through the practices of making and hands-on experiences, through tinkering and taking things apart. Schools seem to have forgotten that students learn best when they are engaged; in fact, the biggest problem in schools is boredom. Students sit passively, expected to absorb all the content that is thrown at them without much context. The context that’s missing is the real world.

Learning by doing was the distillation of the learning philosophy of John Dewey. He wrote: “The school must represent present life—life as real and vital to the child as that which he carries on in the home, in the neighborhood, or on the playground.”

There are many more careers that require team-work than there are solitary professions, and – crucially – there’s strength in numbers. But collaboration is more than just co-operation; it can be used in the entire learning process, from the teacher teaching the class to the students educating one another.

The post provides suggestions on how to teach digital literacy skills. The levels that need to be taught are (quoting from the post):

* It begins as a critical thinking and language skill...

* Utilizing various "search help" tools that may search engines offer...

* Critically sorting through the results...

* Sometimes, supply your kids with the internet resources you want then to use...

David Truss :: 7 Ways to Transform Your Classroom

David Truss :: 7 Ways to Transform Your Classroom | My favorite education articles | Scoop.it

David Truss shares his Inquiry Hub model and a Slideshare presentation on the 7 Ways to Transform Your Classroom along with audio recordings of the Classroom 2.0 Show "Inquiry Learning and Empowering Students" on September 29th.  Here is just a glimpse of the 7 Ways to transform your classroom.

 

> Transforming Classrooms with Inquiry: It starts with educators asking really good questions.

> Transforming Classrooms with Voice: Be it a presentation to a small group, the entire school, the local community or online (with the world), work with students to craft their message in thoughtful, well represented ways.

> Transforming Classrooms with Audience: Through the use of blogs, wikis, digital portfolios and social media tools, you can invite the world to be a participatory audience in the work that our students do.

> Transforming Classrooms with Community: Provide opportunities for projects to extend beyond age-group peers to include younger and/or older students, parents and teachers, community members, subject area experts, and students from around the globe.

> Transforming Classrooms with Leadership: Buddy up with students in younger classes. Create activities and events which truly allow students to ‘run the show’.

> Transforming Classrooms with Play: There is a lot of pedagogy in play (at all ages). Do we provide “gaps” in our teaching? Time and spaces where students can be creative beyond the scope of the content we are teaching?

> Transforming Classrooms with Networks: Skype is a great tool to bring classes from across the country or across the globe together.

 

Thank you David for sharing your model and vision to transform learning!

Project-Based Learning Research Review | My favorite education articles | Scoop.it

Teachers can create real-world problem-solving situations by designing questions and tasks that correspond to two different frameworks of inquiry-based teaching: Problem-based learning, which tackles a problem but doesn't necessarily include a student project, and project-based learning, which involves a complex task and some form of student presentation, and/or creating an actual product or artifact.

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View | My favorite education articles | Scoop.it

What does it mean when you say 21st century learning? This post lists nine characteristics of 21st century learning and provides a rationale. What makes this notable is "the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the 'classic' approach to 'good learning' than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore."

The nine characteristics are in the diagram above and listed below:

Learner-centered, Media-driven, Personalized, Tranfer-by-Design, Visibly Relevant, Data-Rich, Adaptable, Interdependent and Diverse.

Teachers Definitive Guide To Google Search Skills | My favorite education articles | Scoop.it

21st century education is about cultivating important skills such as critical thinking and digital skills.

 

There is now much more knowledge online than you would find in all libraries of the world taken together.

 

To tap into the potential of this vast repertoire of online resources, our learners need instruction on how to effectively use web search techniques to search for academic sources.

 

Practitioners need to teach them how to be independent learners.

 

Google Search Education has all the materials practitioners need to help their learners become skilled searchers, whether they are just starting out with search or ready for advanced training. (Flipped Classroom approach may be the answer to getting them all up to speed)

“Rather than portray the needs of gifted students as being unique, we suggest weaving them into the general education tapestry. To accomplish this, we would revise the chief goal of gifted education to be the chief goal of all education: to ensure that all students receive the education appropriate for them at any given time by maximizing the match between individual students’ educational experiences with their individual educational needs.”

Personalize Learning: The Expert Learner with Voice and Choice

Personalize Learning: The Expert Learner with Voice and Choice | My favorite education articles | Scoop.it

Who is the Expert Learner?
Expert learners take responsibility for their learning. They view learning as something they do for themselves, not something that is done to them or for them. [Source: The Expert Learner]

 

The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) perspective for the Expert Learner is for a learner to be:
> Resourceful and knowledgeable

> Strategic and goal-directed

> Purposeful and motivated

 

Then how can you develop expert learners with voice and choice?


The Three Stages of Personalized Learning Environments provide the process to encourage learner voice. This process can guide the design of personalized learning environments that meets the needs of all learners.  Stage One is teacher-centered and encourages learner voice and some choice. Learner voice is a critical first step. There are ways to do this and this table here describes how the teacher and learner roles change in this stage.

 

When learners have the opportunities to say what they think and be heard by their peers and others, they feel their opinions and perspectives are valued and appreciated. Think about yourself as a learner and what it might feels like if you have a voice in how you learn and even influence decisions about teaching and learning.

Student-Centered Learning - Owning Their Learning

Student-Centered Learning - Owning Their Learning | My favorite education articles | Scoop.it

Shelley Wright describes why she has stopped flipping the classroom and how she has moved to student-centered learning.  She states: "Most teachers who opt for the flipped classroom strategy are not pursuing a student-centered approach to learning. The traditional model is simply being reversed."

 

"Learning isn’t simply a matter of passively absorbing new information while watching a lecture on video; new knowledge should be actively constructed. When we shifted to a student-centred classroom, my students took control of their learning, and I quit lecturing. I haven’t lectured in almost two years."

 

Shelley points out the importance of students owning their learning:

 

"I want my students to own their learning. It’s been stated that “At its most basic level, the flipped classroom gives students more control over their educations, allowing them to start and stop or rewind important lectures to focus on key points.” To me, this isn’t giving students control over their education, although it may be creating new markets for content-oriented videos and related materials.

 

In our classroom, we sit down with the curriculum, and students actually see what the outcomes and objectives are. We then have a dialogue about what my students’ learning might look like. They have a choice over what order they are going to work on outcomes, how they are going to learn and reach those outcomes, and how they are going to show me what they have learned.

 

As my students worked with me to invent our own version of student-centred learning, we realized that the three questions every student in our classroom had to answer were: What are you going to learn? How are you going to learn it? How are you going to show me your learning? This became our mantra — our framework for learning. This is what it means to give students “control over their education.”

 

Thank you Shelley for your insight and thoughts about student-centered learning!
