Good article with some good justification for more play for kids and what they learn while playing.

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, October 8, 2013 5:09 PM

The fear that something will happen is so overblown - I tend to blame the media and our expanding instant news coverage - that if it bleeds it leads, and now covers the whole world in an instant. -Lon

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | Reggio Emilia Approach to Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

Many clear points within the article...Education is messy.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 11, 2013 12:18 PM

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

Taking Street Pictures: The Art of Discreet Creativity - Photographytuts | Reggio Emilia Approach to Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Street photography is often considered as a discreet art. To put it in simple words, street pictures are considered an attempt to capture an evolving world around us, through our lenses, while staying completely out of sight.

Kate Cicchelli's insight:

Street Photography is a wonderful concept and extension of making art and art-making an integrated part of what we see and do.

Great piece that provides a compelling framework for curriculum design.

 

"Of course, real learning is personal, depending on incredible complexities–and incredibly personal nuance. No matter how rehearsed, like a band’s live music, It doesn’t ever sound exactly the same way twice."
