Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 23, 2014 2:12 PM

Students, particularly younger children, learn by doing something meaningful and relevant in the moment. This requires teaching which is more than coaching and calls on teaching as a creative enterprise.

5 Ways To Use Word Cloud Generators In The Classroom - Vocabulary | Õpime mängides | Scoop.it
Word cloud generators have gone the route of Kleenex and Saran Wrap, wherein people often use the name of the product to refer to the thing. Most folks I talk to refer to all word clouds as ‘wordles’, even though Wordle is just one of many, many tools that one can use to create word …

There are some great ideas. Teachers should also use some of the ideas i.e. question what they are learning, photograph the world they live in, be involved in the community, etc. By setting positive and authentic examples, teachers have an opportunity to help students with their role modeling.

Is handwriting a relic of the past? 


It is now only in kindergarten and 1st grade that legible writing is taught to children.  After that "the emphasis quickly shifts to proficiency on the keyboard".

The 6-Step Guide To Becoming A Better Learner

The 6-Step Guide To Becoming A Better Learner | Õpime mängides | Scoop.it

What we need to learn is how to learn.” Indeed, traditional education may not be for everyone, but learning is.

Learning is for everyone, but those of use who have careers and families need alternatives to traditional education. Asynchronous online education is one of the solutions.

Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read

Predicting Dyslexia — Even Before Children Learn to Read | Õpime mängides | Scoop.it
New research shows it’s possible to pick up some of the signs of dyslexia in the brain even before kids learn to read. And this earlier identification may start to substantially influence how parents, educators and clinicians tackle the disorder.

"One of the key goals of early identification, Gabrieli says, is to help kids avoid the stigma of dyslexia."

We use science to support what we want and ignore it in teaching and learning. This would help many teachers and students work together so students can read and write effectively.

Educational managers and reformers are quite caught up in assigning a number to the learning children undertake. It makes more sense to make the learning enjoyable. Teaching is an invitational event which brings children into safe spaces where learning can happen.

Making Learning Meaningful: 6 Priorities For Whole Learning

Making Learning Meaningful: 6 Priorities For Whole Learning | Õpime mängides | Scoop.it

"We recently discovered the Bay Area’s Prospect Sierra School’s interesting learning model that prioritizes 6 ideas for learning in the 21st century. There is, of course, no single “best” way to pursue “21st century learning”–nor any learning at all for that matter. But seeing the way other inspired educators pursue the idea can teach each one of us a lot. In this model, we appreciate the inclusion of self-knowledge, as well as moving past the idea of content to true disciplinary knowledge–seeing knowledge in context and application."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 26, 2014 9:22 PM

This post shares another visual that provides one model of learning in the 21st century. Specifically, it prioritizes six ideas:

* Disciplinary Knowledge - "Build and apply content knowledge to think deeply and act as a practitioner of the discipline"

* Self-Knowledge - "Experiment and create, while embracing failure as an opportunity for growth in order to design new ideas and solutions."

* Innovation Creation - "Recognize one’s emotional, physical, and learning needs, strengths, and challenges to nurture personal growth and resilience"

* Collaboration - "Share knowledge and resources, building on a diversity of ideas and experiences to achieve group goals and interdependence"

* Responsibility - "Understand one’s impact and influence in a local and global community; cultivate compassion, and take positive action"

* Communication - "Express ideas effectively through varied means of presentation; understand one’s audiences, actively listen; and build connection"

Additional information on each of these six ideas is included in the post.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 27, 2014 1:08 PM

There is no single best way to learn which suggests teaching remains central in the process.
