PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner"

PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner" | On education | Scoop.it

We agree with George Couros and Will Richardson that 2013 will be the "Year of the Learner." We are seeing a big culture shift around the world to personalize learning for all learners. When learners are given a greater voice in how they learn, they are more motivated and engaged in their learning. When learners have choices in how they prefer to access and engage with content, and then express what they know, they take ownership of their learning. We encourage you to take one action this "Year of the Learner" by encouraging learner voice and choice.

Flipped Learning Leaders 2017 – Flipped Learning Global Initiative | On education | Scoop.it

"Today, the Flipped Learning Global Initiative (FLGI), a worldwide coalition of educators, researchers, technologists, professional development providers and education leaders, announced the publication of the FLGI 100. The annual list identifies the top 100 K-12 educators who are driving the adoption of the flipped classroom around the world. 

 

"The list is compiled by the FLGI executive committee - led by Jon Bergmann, Chief Academic Officer and one of the pioneers of the flipped classroom movement. Educators from around the globe are represented, including flipped learning practitioners from Italy, China, Taiwan, Spain, UAE, the United Kingdom, Turkey, Italy, Korea, Argentina, Iceland, Sweden, India and the United States.

 

"This year the initiative also identified the top 40 Flipped Learning leaders in higher education; the top 40 Flipped Learning administrators and tech coaches; and the top 10 Flipped Learning corporate training leaders worldwide.

 

"The 2017 FLGI Flipped Learning Leaders lists includes some of the most experienced, innovative and proactive education and training professionals in the world," said Jon Bergmann. "These are the people driving Flipped Learning forward in thought and action and demonstrating what is possible when Flipped Learning is done well."

8 Tips For Teachers Frustrated With Technology -

8 Tips For Teachers Frustrated With Technology - | On education | Scoop.it
With regard to technology, education has to be in this for the long haul regardless of short-term loss as everything seeks to reconcile itself with everything else, much in the same way that the purpose of education is long-term–it should seek to improve the arc of students’ lives and the condition of their communities.

How much work it takes to make that happen is only one part of the timeless struggle of raising human beings.

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture - Mind/Shift | On education | Scoop.it
Adilene Rodriguez admits she has always struggled with academics. Especially in middle school she hated getting up early, found her classes boring and didn’t really see where it was all going. When she started her freshman year at Arroyo High School in San Lorenzo, California, just south of Oakland, she was a shy student who rarely spoke up in class and had little confidence in herself as a scholar.

Rodriguez is now a senior and her approach to school has changed dramatically over her high school career. She attributes her shift to her freshman science teacher, Jim Clark, who taught the class about growth mindset from the very beginning and backed up the discussion with action.

“He would tell me, ‘You need to push yourself, that’s how you’re going to grow. Be confident. You’re not always going to be successful on your first tries, but you can get there,’ ” Rodriguez said

Carol Dweck"s book Mindset is a great resource for teachers who want to learn more about this topic.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 15, 2016 10:29 PM
"She also tries hard to model a growth mindset to her students by being open about her own struggles as a parent and a teacher. “They’re not used to teachers apologizing,” Rodgers said. “But I tell them I’m going to make mistakes all the time. And I think showing that helps them realize they can actually make mistakes.” When teachers and administrators say they want kids to have a growth mindset, the school environment has to back up that rhetoric. At Arroyo, the emphasis on growth mindset came alongside a shift to standards-based grading. Kids can see that mistakes along the way aren’t negatively affecting them and keep working to master the concepts. “When you believe it; they believe,” Rodgers said. “If I didn’t believe this, they wouldn’t buy what I’m selling.”"

To close the skills gap, start with the learning gap

To close the skills gap, start with the learning gap | On education | Scoop.it
When the teacher or principal has firsthand experience, and has directly benefitted from a truly holistic learning environment, she is an authentic role model and change champion. In addition, for experiential learning to be grasped, students need an empowered and skilled guide for the methodology, meaning that teachers and other educational leaders must integrate the importance of active learning and be able to demonstrate it from a place of firm belief in its value.

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people | On education | Scoop.it

A new study lends credence to what you’ve probably always suspected: social media is having a pretty negative effect on teenagers — Instagram and Snapchat being the worst culprits. The study, published today and called “Status of Mind,” was conducted by researchers for the Royal Society for Public Health in the UK. The researchers surveyed 1,479 British youths ages 14-24, asking them how they felt the different social media networks effected their mental health. They took in several factors such as body image, sleep deprivation, bullying, and self-identity.

 

The results suggest the two worst social media networks for kids are Instagram and Snapchat, as they had terrible scores for body image, bullying, and anxiety. Twitter and Facebook weren’t much better, though. YouTube was the only one that apparently inspired more positive feelings than negative ones.

"What are the 100 most influential photographs? To answer this question, Time magazine reached out to historians, curators, and photo editors and conducted interviews with photographers, subjects of famous photographs, and others to assemble this collection of photographs taken between 1826 (when the first known photograph was taken by Joseph Nicephore Niepce) and 2015. Each selected photograph is accompanied by a short essay. These photographs, which can be browsed chronologically, vary widely. Some are poignant, while others are whimsical. Visitors, especially educators and parents, should be aware that some of these photographs depict violence and human suffering and may be disturbing. There is also a series of short documentary films, Behind the Photographs, that provide additional context to some of these famous images."

Computational Thinking for Educators - - Unit 1 - Introducing Computational Thinking

Computational Thinking for Educators - - Unit 1 - Introducing Computational Thinking | On education | Scoop.it
Computational Thinking (CT) is a problem solving process that includes a number of characteristics and dispositions. CT is essential to the development of computer applications, but it can also be used to support problem solving across all disciplines, including the humanities, math, and science. Students who learn CT across the curriculum can begin to see a relationship between academic subjects, as well as between life inside and outside of the classroom.
This course provides an opportunity to experience some of the elements of CT, including:
Decomposition: Breaking down data, processes, or problems into smaller, manageable parts
Pattern Recognition: Observing patterns, trends, and regularities in data
Abstraction: Identifying the general principles that generate these patterns
Algorithm Design: Developing the step by step instructions for solving this and similar problems
The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE), Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA) and the UK Computing at School working group (CAS) have collaborated with representatives from education and industry to develop computational thinking resources for educators.

Social media is here to stay.

No matter how much we lament a loss of privacy, too much screen time, superficial identity, or countless other worries, media has been around since language was invented, and we have always sought to make that media as social as locally available technology would allow.

From chisels and tablets to the printing press to radio and television to twitter and Facebook, as long as we continue to have thoughts and ideas, we will continue to seek to publish and socialize them with others.
