10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment

10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

"Wherever we are, we’d all like to think our classrooms are “intellectually active” places. Progressive learning (like our 21st Century Model, for example) environments. Highly effective and conducive to student-centered learning. But what does that mean?

The reality is, there is no single answer because teaching and learning are awkward to consider as single events or individual 'things'..."

What are the characteristics of an effective learning environment? Read on...

These criteria really outline some solid  principles that should direct our planning and thus be evident in our learning environments. Principles such as: student enquiry, work readiness, personalised learning, flexibility, authentic and transparent assessment. I like the focus on critical thinking here :)

Great scoop Beth. I love the goal of "intellectually active" classrooms.

Social media for anticorruption? Exploring experiences in the former Soviet block

Social media for anticorruption? Exploring experiences in the former Soviet block | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

Spurred by events in the Arab world and high profile examples like the Indian Ipaidabribe.com, the role of social media to fight corruption and, more broadly, improve governance has been in the spotlight recently (see e.g. the Accountability 2.0 blog http://bit.ly/nXUecB). Perhaps the most comprehensive reports we have come across in this area are from the Transparency and Accountability Initiative. Their global mapping report on technology for transparency and the latest piece on the state of the art in transparency, accountability and citizen participation are particularly informative. Ditto for the online tracking tool on technologies for civic engagement. [...]

In order to start to address these gaps, our regional office is about to embark on a study that aims to provide a country by country overview/inventory of initiatives related to use of social media for anticorruption as well as some more in-depth analysis of selected examples. Here’s a very initial inventory (http://bit.ly/oWoVMk), courtesy of my colleague, Piotr Drozd. Eventually, we hope to move beyond the analysis and, in true web 2.0 fashion, “learn by doing” through actual small scale pilots.

Are you interested in this topic? Do you have any pointers or suggestions that could inform our research and make it more relevant to your needs? Do you know of any case studies we could include our research? We’d love to hear from you. Original post: http://bit.ly/qrwV30
