Turning Students Into Teachers

Turning Students Into Teachers | personal portfolio |
The best way to learn anything is to teach it to someone else . Isn't that what you've always been told? It's true ... and also a great philosophy to apply in…

Begoña Iturgaitz's insight:

Crystal clear. I truly cannot understand why we don't make any profit of this at schools. As a related issue, also absolutely worthy for  those high skilled learners at our own schools, instead of searching only  for individual gateways.

Voice Thread invites sharing and belongs with strategies to be used with creatively teaching.

More than anything else, the concept of self-directed, entrepreneurial learning and transfer stand out. Learning how to learn is very different than learning content. In the 21st century, access to content and resources is no longer in short supply, but rather access to learning pathways, and authentic reasons to learn, which is where meaning making, critical curiosity, and resilience come in. Making that shift in your own mind is important for these dimensions to be relevant.

The shift is from learning content to learning how to learn.

The takeaways for teachers probably start with the role of the student in the learning process: voice, choice, personalization, self-direction, project-based learning, and other low-hanging fruit of current trends in learning.
