Why We Need To Value Students’ Spatial Creativity

Why We Need To Value Students’ Spatial Creativity | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
Though spatial skills -- the ability to find meaning in the shape, size, orientation, or trajectory, of objects -- are valuable, the tactics we use to measure student outcomes don't always include these important skills.

Developing a Growth Mindset Culture in the Classroom

Developing a Growth Mindset Culture in the Classroom | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
If a task is set at the correct level of challenge then 50% of pupils should fail at it. That’s potentially a lot of failure for pupils to deal with everyday, but as a school and as a classroom practitioner, we need to support that failure and show pupils the link between failure and learning. The overall outcome of the process is what pupils are eventually judged on through assessments, but pupils need to understand that the process they go through to understand a new concept is just as important (if not more important) as getting it right.

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, January 13, 2014 11:44 AM

"Most learning needs today are becoming too complex to be addressed 'in our heads,'" Mr. Siemens wrote in a 2008 blog post. "We need to rely on a network of people (and, increasingly, technology) to store, access, and retrieve knowledge and motivate its use. The network becomes the learning."

 

"Education, then, is "a connection-forming process," in which "we augment our capacity to know more" by adding nodes to our personal networks and learning how to use them properly."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 13, 2014 1:03 PM
Authentic learning has always been about two things. Connecting with something that is meaningful to the learner and finding others who are interested in some way to the same things. Many scholars have argued this throughout the Centuries i.e. Dewey, Whitehead, Aoki, Montessori, etc. The difference today is we have new tools that allow different forms of connections without giving up on the ones that are still effective. The deeper concern I have is there is still a pervasive sense of expertise here. Someone is the voice of knowledge and we seem reluctant to acknowledge this.

5 Ideas To Bring Parents Into The Learning Process

5 Ideas To Bring Parents Into The Learning Process | MyEdu&PLN | Scoop.it
When you ask parents from any country in the world, what they ask their children at the end of the day about school, their question is very similar: “What did you learn today?” The disconcerting thing is that the answer is almost always exactly the same. “Nothing.” Parents are a great untapped resource in our schools, and social media gives us an opportunity to engage them in their child’s classroom in a way that we never were able to before.

Tips to improve curation and benefit both you and other users

'Timothy Leyfer's curator insight, January 24, 2014 1:20 PM

"Explain, always clearly why something you are curating/communicating is relevant. Contextualize."

This is just one of the five great points from Sam Burroughs that we should consider when communicating relevant information to people on our list.

There are four other great tips equally as important, that we should use when communicating information to others.

In today's fast-paced world the information that we are trying to communicate to others should be user centered.

Without getting too Platonic about it all, reading doesn’t change simply because you’re reading a text from another content area. Only sometimes it does. Science content can often by full of jargon, research citations, and odd text features.
