I plan to use the 3-2-1 method in my very next class. Great ideas.

Mary Starry's curator insight, September 13, 6:38 PM

Great graphic that summarizes things we've all heard before, but helps keep them in mind so we really do utilize them with students.

From Toy to Tool: How to Develop Smart Tablet Habits in Class

From Toy to Tool: How to Develop Smart Tablet Habits in Class | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

Managing tablets as learning tools in the classroom is not easy, especially when many kids use them largely as toys outside of school, if they have access to a tablet in their home environment. Here are some ideas on how to develop smart habits for class.

Using “Frameworks” to Enhance Teaching and Learning

Using “Frameworks” to Enhance Teaching and Learning | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it
I want to explain the use of what I call “frameworks” in my college teaching. I have used them during nine years of teaching graduate and undergraduate classes, and my students tell me that they are particularly helpful. Although I teach in Utica College’s Education program, this tool has application across a broad number of disciplines and courses at a variety of levels.

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

"It just might be that in a society where information is abundant, thinking habits are more important than knowledge. Somewhere beneath wisdom and above the “things” a student knows.

Laws of economics say that scarcity increases value. It’s no longer information that’s scarce, but rather meaningful response to that information. Thought.

And thought has a source–a complex set of processes, background knowledge, and schema that we can, as educators think of as cognitive habits. And if they’re habits, well, that means they’re probably something we can practice at, doesn’t it?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 8, 7:09 PM

We want our students to demonstrate that they know how to think, to understand that they have the ability to ask questions and find answers, answers that may not be available through Google (esp. if we are asking them to research). In short, we want them to use metacognitive skills.

But how do we teach them these skils? The image above, from teachthought, provides 15 questions that may help students create the habits that students need to learn. Below are three of the questions. Click through to the post for the entire list, as well as some great discussion.

* Is this idea important to me? To others? Why or why not?

* Is there a “part” of this new idea I can take and “pivot”? Create something new and fresh?

* What real-world models–examples–relate to this that can help me understand this further?

Consider posting these questions in your classroom and using them when appropriate with students.

Bronwyn Burke's curator insight, Today, 2:50 PM

Thinking and questioning, the more the better. Engaging with new information and building curiosity.
