What Meaningful Reflection On Student Work Can Do for Learning

Reflecting on one's work can be instrumental to growth and improvement, but it's an activity that's often under utilized.

Manuela Mejia's curator insight, August 27, 10:33 AM
The connection between the digital age and the learning process is very interesting since it goes beyond the electronic devices as a learning tool. The author tries to provide some technological strategies in which students improve and give feedback to their learning process. I consider that our goal as teachers is to use technology not only as a device to give academic knowledge, we also need to implement technology as a tool which helps the learner to be autonomous, thoughtful and proactive.

Questions to Ask Oneself While Designing Learning Activities | Design | Learning To Learn | Religious and Family Life Education | Scoop.it

Jackie GERSTEIN: I absolutely love planning lessons from scratch.  I just got a job teaching technology units for a summer camp for elementary age students. I can design and teach whatever I want – planning for a different theme each week. Some of the themes I am planning are: Expanding and Showing Your Personal Interests Through Blogging, Photos, and Videos; Coding and Creating Online Games; Tinkering and Making – Simple Robotics; Hacking Your Notebook; and Creating Online Comics, Newspapers, and Magazines.  I have begun the process of planning these classes through reflecting on what the lessons will look like.

Some simple but great ideas. Many modern classrooms have lots of fun using technology, and that is important, but - if this is at the expense of academic rigour - you are probably not expecting enough from your students.

Schools Need to Include More Visual-Based Learning

Schools Need to Include More Visual-Based Learning | Religious and Family Life Education | Scoop.it
When asked what my first language is, I often answer, “visual.” I think in images, prefer to be taught through images, and like to express what I know through images. I find it disconcerting that as learners progress to the higher grades, there is less use of images and visuals to teach concepts.

The power of the use of vision for learning is emphasized by developmental molecular biologist, John Medina, where in his publication, Brain Rules, he states:

Vision Trumps All Other Senses

We are incredible at remembering pictures. Hear a piece of information, and three days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%. Professionals everywhere need to know about the incredible inefficiency of text-based information and the incredible effects of images (http://www.brainrules.net/vision).

With regard to learning, we forget this basic information regarding memory and visual stimuli at our peril. Our own learning and that of students deserves greater use of and focus on visual learning cues and aids, as well as an understanding of visual literacy.

Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, July 18, 2015 7:32 AM

There have been lots of research papers written on visual learning. Many learners need to see things as well as hear them and do them. Brain science aside, it seems common sense to ensure that we deliver material to learners in a variety of modes in order to help them to retain it and than connect it to prior knowledge.

Seven Laws of the Self-directed Learner | Andragogy | Heutagogy | eSkills

Seven Laws of the Self-directed Learner | Andragogy | Heutagogy | eSkills | Religious and Family Life Education | Scoop.it

Dr. Bernard Bull is Assistant Vice President of Academics for Continuing and Distance Education & Associate Professor of Education at Concordia University Wisconsin.

 

In 1888, John Milton Gregory published The Seven Laws of Teaching, providing instruction on what contributes to being an effective teacher.  While this list is over a hundred years old, most readers today will resonate with this list of laws. This is one of a dozen or so books that I try to read each year.  It is a short read that one can usually finish in a few hours.  As I picked up the book to read again today, I started to think about these laws in terms of self-directed learning, rewriting the laws from a self-directed learning perspective (which, by the way, fits nicely with law #7).  

 

Below is the original list of “elements” from which Gregory devised his seven laws.  Using these as a starting point, I revised them to create the seven elements of a self-directed learner, adding one additional item that did not seem to have adequate emphasis in Gregory’s original list (although it is embedded within several of them).

People are innately wired to avoid risk. During times of times of change and uncertainty, our risk aversion is amplified. Yet the number one way to gaining competitive edge is by creating a culture where people feel safe and emboldened to innovate and challenge the status quo thinking. The first key to creating a 'culture of courage' is leading from possibility, not probability.
