10 Steps to Writing an Explainer Video [INFOGRAPHIC] | On education | Scoop.it
Sometimes you just need someone to explain to you how to write an explainer video. It's not circular logic, it's a great new infographic. Starting with the planning and detailing the writing process, this infographic will have you ready with a script in no time. Clarify your objects and identify your audience and start writing!

Obviously, this infographic is for a business setting. But, as they say, a little thought will enable the process to be transposed to education.

Don’t Be “Cool,” Be Interested — The Synapse — Medium

Don't Be "Cool," Be Interested - The Synapse - Medium
In thinking about this exchange, I think I’m coming to realize that what my students valued about the conversation may not have been the subject matter necessarily, but rather that I was willing to stop the lesson for a few minutes just to have a talk about why I found it interesting. When interacting with other students, I try to do the same thing: allow the conversation to proceed naturally from a genuine question, and not worrying about a specific academic goal for every interaction. I’ve had some of my deepest, most interesting, most academically rigorous conversations with students based on this questioning method — they aren’t used to teachers allowing themselves to get sidetracked from the lesson at hand, but once they realize that they aren’t being played in some way, they engage at an almost miraculous level.

The digital divide and lack of reliable Internet access at home can put low-income and rural students at a real disadvantage. So when superintendent Darryl Adams took over one of the poorest school district in the nation, he made it a top priority to help his students get online 24/7. Special correspondent David Nazar of PBS SoCal reports with PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs.

Educational Leadership:Looking at Student Work:The Secret of Effective Feedback - Dylan William

Educational Leadership:Looking at Student Work:The Secret of Effective Feedback - Dylan William | On education | Scoop.it
Most of the time, however, the student work we're looking at is not important in and of itself, but rather for what it can tell us about students—what they can do now, what they might be able to do in the future, or what they need to do next. Looking at student work is essentially an assessment process. We give our students tasks, and from their responses we draw conclusions about the students and their learning needs.
When we realize that most of the time the focus of feedback should be on changing the student rather than changing the work, we can give much more purposeful feedback. If our feedback doesn't change the student in some way, it has probably been a waste of time.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 28, 12:19 PM
There is a bit of an over-simplified definition of feedback at times, as if it is always external. What if an objective is to help students and teachers (for that matter) to learn how to use internal feedback along with external feedback?

Lillian Pace shares what ESSA means for schools across our country and includes a Sample State Vision for Personalized Learning under ESSA.

 

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) is just over four months old, and it’s already dominating national, state, and local conversations about education reform. There is certainly a lot to get excited about in the new federal education law, including a long list of opportunities to make personalized learning a reality for every student in the country.

Introducing the Continuum of Ownership. Discover how learners can move from compliance to autonomy.  

 

Chris Watkins, an independent consultant and leading authority on meta-learning in the UK and former reader at The Institute of Education, London Centre for Leadership in Learning makes these four points of what happens when learners drive the learning. When learners drive their learning,
  • it leads to greater engagement and intrinsic motivation for them to want to learn, 
  • learners setting a higher challenge for themselves, 
  • learners evaluating their own work, and 
  • better problem-solving skills.

Cause and Effect Analysis: Identifying the Likely Causes of Problems

Cause and Effect Analysis: Identifying the Likely Causes of Problems | On education | Scoop.it
When you have a serious problem, it's important to explore all of the things that could cause it, before you start to think about a solution.

That way you can solve the problem completely, first time round, rather than just addressing part of it and having the problem run on and on.

Cause and Effect Analysis gives you a useful way of doing this. This diagram-based technique, which combines Brainstorming with a type of Mind Map , pushes you to consider all possible causes of a problem, rather than just the ones that are most obvious.

Recommendations for Advancing Personalized Learning Under ESSA

Recommendations for Advancing Personalized Learning Under ESSA | On education | Scoop.it

Report from KnowledgeWorks

 

"To help state education agencies and local districts consider opportunities in the new law, today KnowledgeWorks releases "Recommendations for Advancing Personalized Learning Under the Every Student Succeeds Act," a guide for imagining and implementing a vision of personalized learning that aligns federal, state and local policies.

 

"The 391 pages of ESSA are full of opportunities to make personalized learning a reality for every student in the country," KnowledgeWorks Senior Director of National Policy Lillian Pace said. "Stakeholders should take advantage of these opportunities to carefully consider and re-imagine systems of teaching and learning under the new law."

The resource identifies opportunities in ESSA to advance personalized learning and offers recommendations for leveraging these opportunities to build high-quality education systems. The guide also asks questions to help state and local education stakeholders build a system that emphasizes college and career readiness, continuous improvement and equity."
