Edupunk and student centred learning through technology

Edupunk and student centred learning through technology | Newschool | Scoop.it

I’ve often wondered why it is that the internet is such an amazing, creative and inspiring place full of so many fantastically interesting things, and yet so many educational software, applications and e-learning products turn out to be so dull.

It is interesting that we think there are no economic interests at play in the e-learning world. There are and they are significant. It does not mean we don't use various digital technologies, but let us make sure we ask questions and challenge their usages when needed.

Gust MEES's curator insight, May 14, 9:16 PM

One of the most difficult parts of our jobs as educators is to create a learning environment where our learners are engaged and meet content and curriculum goals. From my experience, the single most important challenge that needs to be addressed to earn engagement in our classrooms is to develop a culture of learner autonomy--allowing and encouraging learners to take control of their own learning. There are many barriers that we, as educators, must work to clear in order to create a strong culture that allows our learners to feel comfortable with working toward a common goal in the way that works best for them.

Helen Teague's curator insight, May 22, 10:26 AM
Kathleen McClaskey's insight: Brian shares how he transformed his classroom to a learner-centered environment and what happened in the process with his learners. Here is a glimpse of his journey: "As teachers, it is difficult to let go of control and to let our learners find the best ways for them to achieve content and curriculum goals. To be clear, our role in the classroom needs to change, and I think the trend in education is moving the correct direction--achieving and creating a learner-driven, personalized atmosphere is the key. Providing learners with the tools to succeed should be the goal, and we should focus on allowing them to use those tools in the way that works best individually. Instead of providing the blueprint for learners to achieve a goal, educators should be allowing and guiding them in designing, developing, and implementing their plan for accomplishing it. When this happens, drastic changes take place regarding engagement in our classrooms and ownership of learning appears, leading to a higher level of achievement."

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | Newschool | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.

For some Makerspaces, the ones with lots of parental involvement, many of the projects are self-funded. But if your Makerspace takes place at a school without as much family support, or if you simply do not have this all in place, you may need to research community or family foundation grants to fill in the gap.”

Here’s Why You and Everyone You Know Should Be on Periscope

Here's Why You And Everyone You Know Should Be On Periscope - The Coffeelicious - Medium

Periscope is a platform that allows content creators to gain instant feedback from their audience. You won’t get that on YouTube, Vimeo, or Facebook. You are able to interact with your audience and answer their questions during the broadcast. As you begin to gain a following you’ll start seeing familiar faces and they kind of become like friends.

 

I am a big fan of this new app and I cannot wait to see what’s in store for Periscope. Will it change the journalism industry? Who knows. What I do know is that every content creator, salesman, inventor, techie, artist, musician, and business person should be on this app....

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy -

The Padagogy Wheel - It’s Not About The Apps, It’s About The Pedagogy - | Newschool | Scoop.it
The Padagogy Wheel is designed to help educators think – systematically, coherently, and with a view to long term, big-picture outcomes – about how they use mobile apps in their teaching. The Padagogy Wheel is all about mindsets; it’s a way of thinking about digital-age education that meshes together concerns about mobile app features, learning transformation, motivation, cognitive development and long-term learning objectives.

The Padagogy Wheel, though, is not rocket science. It is an everyday device that can be readily used by everyday teachers; it can be applied to everything from curriculum planning and development, to writing learning objectives and designing centered activities. The idea is for the users to respond to the challenges that the Wheel presents for their teaching practices, and to ask themselves the tough questions about their choices and methods.

I chose this article because I have a grave concern for the viability for public education and am always interested in hearing insights about what must be "fixed". Wasting gifts, talents and abilities - Yes, the educational system does not seem to value many unique and specific talents. Instead, test achievement is valued! The author says that "The other issue is that there are not many jobs in the world that pay people to be good test takers". I wholeheartedly agree! a pencil paper task does not necessarily suggest one's capability of learning and accomplishing specific tasks associated with an occupation or profession. Another thing that I'm contemplating from this article that is a very complex issue: "...there is a danger of educational technology shaping us more than us shaping the technology". I believe that this threshold is sometimes exceeded. Electronic resources are meant to compliment and augment teaching.

I scooped this article that was already on my scoop it news feed because I was very interested in it. It seemed iteresting due to the fact that I am currently learning how to read and write like a writer. Math teachers teaching writing does seem strange when you first hear of it. However when the tactics and methods are explained is is very reasonable and very rewarding to students. Writing is something that should be practiced every day because it is such a critical skill. Just as teachers of different subjects are teaching writing it will be used in life no matter what profession one has. No teacher, including math teachers, should be opposed to teaching writing because as a teacher it does not matter what you are teaching because the main goal is to help students further their horizons and expand to the point where they can achieve anything in life.

I did not even know how poor my assessments are until I listened to this packed 10 minute interview. Discussions include:

 

formative assessments must be frequent and fluid--sit down with standards to build questions that are reflective and align with standards to be taught

move away from what students say they know and what they actually know--you are gathering and giving to students information on their progress

grade less, but provide more feedback so that students do not become defeated, but rather gain confidence in their learning.

"If students were doing awesome things with an iPad, what would that look like? Here's another way of putting it: How does an iPad align with a vision of meaningful and purposeful learning?

 

Bereft of examples and inspiration, many educators struggle to conceive of iPad integration beyond mere substitution for whatever came before. Educators need guidance on how to leverage iPads as hubs of innovation that nurture the learning skills, competencies, and habits of mind that help students develop skills for today's world.
