Scientific teaching and engaged learning: building capacity for expert thinking
Students do not learn by doing activities. They learn by thinking about what they are doing. ~ Jean Piaget

Taxonomy of engaged learning | suehellman

Taxonomy of engaged learning | suehellman | Scientific teaching and engaged learning: building capacity for expert thinking | Scoop.it

This is a tentative title for a concept that is coalescing from a number of different sources: scientific teaching, Shelley Wright's flipped Bloom (see next resource below), and Krakwohl's affective taxonomy. I regret the loss of synthesis in all the new Blooms so I've given it a prominent place. 

 

I'm struggling to come up with a word (-gogy? -gogical?) that will describe the methods and practices of learning in the same way that pedagogy is about methods and practices of teaching. If you have suggestions, please leave a comment. Thanks.

Sue Hellman3's insight:

Another educator's adaptation of Wright's original graphic -- http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/06/flipping-expanding-blooms-taxonomy/. This one adds the social dimension of learning to the model.

Edcanvas | The one place to organize, present and share knowledge

Edcanvas | The one place to organize, present and share knowledge | Scientific teaching and engaged learning: building capacity for expert thinking | Scoop.it

Edcanvases are collections of tiles that display media, files, links, etc. This should be brilliant on an interactive white board. Notes for For Canadian educators (FIPPA laws):

a) when students sign into a class, they provide only first and last names and a screen name (no emails). It should be possible to populate a class ahead of time (Student One, Student Two, etc.) & assign these 'identities' to kids like text books.

b) create a class account. Multiple students can simultaneously work on multiple canvases OR  one canvas (must refresh to see updates -- more collaboration capability is in the works)

 

Lesson ideas?

 

(1) Get a group of students to break a complex task into a sequence of tiles and shuffle. Other students or groups rearrange the tiles into the correct order, add missing steps if needed, and record on each tile the reason for their choices. Play the sequence to the class to check it. Give a new problem and test the sequence to see if it works.

 

(2) Have students use canvases as a way to collect project research (websites, images, media). Whenever a tile is created it must be flipped to add notes about what interested you about this source and ESPECIALLY to make bibliography citations. When it's time to create the project. Select & arrange tiles into the best order. Those not used become an 'Additional references' section.

Sue Hellman3's insight:

It's still a bit 'buggy' so I've shifted to Pathbrite for my portfolio and will wait to use Edcanvas until they've had time to work on some of my 'bug reports'.

Puzzle: Quarter Quandary

Puzzle: Quarter Quandary | Scientific teaching and engaged learning: building capacity for expert thinking | Scoop.it

"Students are asked what will happen if two quarters are placed side by side and then one is rotated around the circumference of the other. (The quarters should be fairly new so that the edge ridges are not worn. This keeps them from slipping during the rotation.) If the portraits on the two coins are facing in the same direction at the start, how will they be aligned at the end of one rotation? How many times will the portrait on the rotated coin go around in one rotation?

 

Please answer these questions for yourself and then get two new quarters and try the activity."

How to Motivate Your Students - EFFECTIVE TEACHING - Teachers.Net 2001

"A discrepant event is something that doesn't make sense to the mind, even while starring at it in disbelief. This kernel of skepticism is enough to pique any student's curiosity. ... And as effective teachers know, you never tell them why, because once you have them involved and interested you can do anything you want with them. If you want to lecture and explain what happened, they will listen. If you want them to watch a video related to the topic, they will watch. If you want them to break into groups and solve the problem themselves, they will work in groups."

Teacher-Centered, Learner-Centered or All of the Above | Faculty Focus

Teacher-Centered, Learner-Centered or All of the Above | Faculty Focus | Scientific teaching and engaged learning: building capacity for expert thinking | Scoop.it

"Parker [Palmer --earlier intereviewed by this blogger] writes that academics [and I think many educators] have a tendency to 'think the world apart.' 'We look at the world through analytical lenses. We see everything as this or that, plus or minus, on or off, black or white; and we fragment reality into an endless series of either-ors.' (p. 64) I see us doing this as teachers and I can’t think of a better example than how being teacher-centered is juxtaposed with being learner-centered..

‪TEDxToronto - Dr. Brian Goldman - Redefining the Practice of Medicine 
‬

He thought that being perfect and memorizing as much as he could about everything would protect him from failure. Godlman tells the story of his first 3 mistakes -- each of which was worse than the one before. 

 

This could be a powerful metaphor for educators and for students ... confessions of a perfectionist who finds it almost impossible to talk about his mistakes and ask for the support of colleagues.

CoPlanningGuide: 3 part lesson in math (Ontario).pdf

"The team works collaboratively to design an appropriate and challenging problem that allows for student choice and can be solved in a variety of ways.  ... The teachers “do the math” prior to the lesson. By solving the problem themselves, they are better able to anticipate potential student solutions and to deepen their collective and personal understanding of the mathematics."
