Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 6, 2014 8:36 PM

Jackie Gerstein returns with a post on Hope and Optimism, another 21st century skill. Why hope and optimism? There are important skills/characteristics in this area:

* Positive View About the Future

* Can Do Attitude

* Personal Agency

* Engage in Positive Self Talk

* Belief in Ability to Solve Problems

* Belief in One’s Ability to Impact Positively on One’s Situation.

* Maintaining Perspective

* Sense of Efficacy

She then provides information and links to articles that have researched how hope and optimism impact students' lives in many areas, research based guidelines on how to build skills of hope in students, and more. This post provides much food for thought.

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students | Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

This is a great blog post on feedback and the importance of asking and listening to our students.

Would you allow your students to evaluate you as a teacher? I think that you would learn a lot.

This prediction is bang on target. There is no running away from social media. It is not an option anymore. The future  is where the technology is and it is going to integrate right into your life. There would hardly be a difference between social media and real life. 

The face of education will change in this new world. It will diminish the boundaries and people from all parts of the world will come together and make learning fun .

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning?

What’s Our Vision for the Future of Learning? | Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Author David Price writes: "If schools are coming into direct competition with the learning opportunities available in the informal social space, it has to be said that this is a pressure, which barely registers within the political discourse.

 

In the following pages, Price describes three cases across the globe — in London, Sydney, San Diego — that have mapped a vision that answers the questions above. Here’s what they have in common:

 

- By insisting that their teachers and mentors share their learning, all three have de-privatized teaching and learning.

 

- By opening up the commons, and by designing workspaces without walls, they have brought Edison’s ‘machine-shop culture’ into education.

 

- By bringing into the commons, experts, parents and investors, they have given an authenticity to the work of their students that is impossible to simulate in an enclosed classroom.

 

- By modelling collaborative working to their students they have fostered the peer learning which is at the heart of ‘open’.

 

- By emphasizing adult and real-world connections, they ensure that students are preparing for the world beyond school by being in that world.

 

- By making their expertise and intellectual property freely available, they have created high demand from their peers and ensured that knowledge travels fast.

 

- By seeing technology not simply as an aide to learning but as the imperative for change, they ensure that their programs are relevant to societal needs and societal shifts.

 

- By trusting in their staff and students, and by giving them freedom and responsibility in equal measure, they have fostered a culture of learning that rewards respectful challenge, shuns unnecessary deference, and therefore constantly stays in motion.

Wondering what is on the horizon for education.... Significant upheaval, hacking our own learning, and the ability by our students to learn by....
compiling their own learning playlist, putting together units of study that appeal to their passions, (and) the one-size-fits-all model of high school will appear alarmingly anachronistic... Great quote by the Singapore Minister of Eduction -- “The educational paradigm of our parents’ generation, which emphasized the transmission of knowledge, is quickly being overtaken by a very different paradigm. This new concept of educational success focuses on the nurturing of key skills and competencies such as the ability to seek, to curate and to synthesize information; to create and innovate; to work in diverse cross-cultural teams; as well as to appreciate global issues within the local context.”

Very nice sharing. Thanks

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 14, 2014 1:43 PM

Sometimes what is most obvious is what we do not see readily. Whitehead suggested this was the case, but other, including the Buddha and Jesus, said similar things. We need to examine what we are doing, be aware of what we want from education. This takes leadership that moves away from easy, facile ways of doing things with 7 habits, 4 methods, etc. and makes real and meaningful change.

 

We simply cannot continue to add more changes without removing some of the architecture that currently exists. This includes with technology.

“Administrators and teachers are becoming more accepting of the use of video games as an educational tool,” said Lamb, “when they are educated about the potential and use. However, the bigger problem I find is not so much the acceptance of the games as tools but rather the lack of infrastructure.”


This why the next generation of Learning Management Systems, need to be more open for bridging of student data and progress with the games. Inclusion of code keys or at least the data sets would allow the games to become a useful teaching tool in the 21st century.

"When you use tablets and other devices, the nature of them requires you to be a teacherpreneur, or one who innovates, selects, and customizes your classroom.

A great way to add interest to the classroom (especially while spring testing is happening) is to introduce or play with a new tool. You need a break of scenery and your students do too!

Sometimes it is what you need to grab their attention as you review something important. "
