160 Math Project Ideas Offer Examples of Project-Based Learning | On education | Scoop.it

by Heidi Reina

 

"These 160 math projects, from schools across the US, provide overviews, activities, assessment rubrics, work product descriptions, and ideas for reflection. Although they vary in format, you can adjust them to your students' learning situation, curriculum demands, etc. Projects from Teach21 PBL (West Virginia Dept of Education), and Math Matters in Indiana are very detailed and provide excellent project-based learning lesson plan templates."

"To help jump-start your brainstorming, we have gathered a list of 200 writing prompts from our daily Student Opinion feature that invite you to take a stand.

"Though you won’t be limited to these topics for the contest, you’ll see that our list touches on every aspect of modern life, from politics to sports, culture, education and technology. We hope the range inspires you, and we hope the fact that each question links to at least one related Times article gives you a starting point for finding evidence."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 17, 6:12 PM
Chris Watkins' article, Research Matters: Learning, Performance and Improvement, is about the relationship between learning in schools and performance in schools.  Watkins' research concludes that a focus on learning can enhance performance, where a focus on performance alone can depress performance. With traditional instruction, the climate in the classrooms becomes more performance oriented over years of schooling.

A performance-oriented environment focuses on looking good
rather than learning well.

by Roger Riddell

 

"We're not saying there's anything wrong with presentations. After all, they wouldn't be used so often in the classroom if they weren't effective. But in today's increasingly device-saturated learning spaces, whether they be in higher ed or K-12, instruction demands interaction. Luckily, it's not too hard to spice up your pedagogy. These four tools can help you turn that static slideshow into a more engaging experience for everyone involved."

> Change the way they sit.

> Change the way they work.

> Change the knowledge they have.

> Change the expectations for all.

> Change the timeline.

Strengthening Lessons with a Student Work Protocol ~ Teaching Channel

Strengthening Lessons with a Student Work Protocol ~ Teaching Channel | On education | Scoop.it

by Gretchen Vierstra

description by MiddleWeb SmartBrief

 

"Former middle-grades teacher Gretchen Vierstra in this blog post describes how teachers can -- collaboratively or on their own -- use the EQuiP Student Work Protocol to analyze whether student work and a teacher's lesson align to Common Core State Standards. "Sometimes you can be too close to a student, a student's work, or the lesson you created to see that there is room for improvement," she writes."


Jim Lerman's insight: The protocol for analyzing student work and the videos that Vierstra writes about are first-rate. These are well worth a look.

HyperCities ~ New Learning Times | On education | Scoop.it

by Carmen James

 

"HyperCities is a dynamic educational project at the intersection of cartography and information visualization, humanities and technology, geography and digital space. The project has produced grounded cultural narratives in 27 international cities. HyperCities uses Google Maps and Google Earth (among other technologies, like GPS-enabled cameras and cell phones) to allow users to explore historical layers of city spaces. Accessing the cities and exploring them is straightforward. Once a city has been selected, users can select the time period or the area of the city they are looking to explore on the map. Within each frame, users can access everything from scholarly content to community-generated content. Users can also click on historic sites to learn more about them and overlay older maps of the same cities."

TJ Bliss: Musings on OER Policy

"Policy favorable to OER is a critical component of the entire open education movement. OER policies currently exist at many levels: international, national, regional, local, and institutional. You can explore various OER policies around the world on the OER Policy Map maintained by the OER Research Hub. Creative Commons also maintains a list of proposed and adopted OER policies that is well-worth your perusal. As I have traveled hither and yon these past few months meeting with Hewlett grantees and others involved and interested in OER, the policy issue has continually surfaced as an important theme. These conversations have caused me to think more deeply about the role of policy in accomplishing Hewlett’s goal of mainstreaming OER."
