Personalized PBL: Student-Designed Learning

Personalized PBL: Student-Designed Learning | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
Project-based learning may be the best vehicle for personalized learning as teachers move beyond "course-based" approaches and open the way for student-designed curriculum.

Via Amy Burns
Durriyyah Kemp's insight:

Project-Based Learning is a great vehicle for allowing student to gain social and emotional learning (SEL) skills.  The five core competency skills for SEL (self-awareness, social awareness, relationship skills, responsible decision-making, and self-management) can be easily integrated into any project-based learning opportunity.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 20, 2014 1:38 PM

PBL is one way to approach the way to organize the learning for students within the classroom. The use of different tools allows for the development of student-driven designs for learning and provides teachers with the opportunity to allow students more direction in their own learning. 

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, August 21, 2014 9:13 PM

An art teacher and I (drama teacher) started to use a negotiated approach with students about 15 years ago.  By working with students to be aware of curriculum expectations and discussing "what would this look like" we assisted students with developingntheir own learnign pathways and expressions of their learning - in keeping with the legislated requirements of curriculum.  I've also noted over the years that elements of the International Baccalaureate - particularly the project work from MYP - reflects a similar approach.

Without reference to research literature, I'd speculate that this speaks to engagement, authenticity and relevance... and needn't be confined to K-12 contexts.... well-documented project work could be conducted outside the confines of formal classes and evidenced against formal assessment criteria.

Tomorrow's Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future - TeachThought

Tomorrow's Learning Today: 7 Shifts To Create A Classroom Of The Future - TeachThought | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
Below are some ideas that are truly transformational–not that they haven’t been said before. It’s not this article that’s transformational, but the ideas themselves. These ideas aren’t just buzzwords or trendy edu-jargon but the kind of substance with the potential for lasting change.

And the best part? This is stuff that’s available not tomorrow with ten grand in classroom funding and 12 hours of summer PD, but today. Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y.

But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise.

8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Calling Out Kids for Their Bad Behavior - Brilliant or Insane

8 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Calling Out Kids for Their Bad Behavior - Brilliant or Insane | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
If a kid has been pushed to a point where she’s acting out in order to get negative attention, the problem is far bigger than you. You know that, right? I didn’t when I was a young teacher, but when this reality dawned on me, it was a game changer. Realizing that it wasn’t about me gave me enough space to breath a bit before I reacted.

It’s not about you either, I’ll bet. If it is, it might say something about how much the kid who is making you crazy cares about you.

Sometimes, they act out to get your attention.

Sometimes, it’s the only way they know.

Sometimes, admitting what they really think or feel or need requires a level of vulnerability they just aren’t able to conjure.

So, don’t call students out in front of other people. Don’t point out their errors, don’t name their flaws, and by all means, don’t cut them down with your sarcasm. Try to get to the root of the problem, instead. Try asking yourself a few questions.

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
The educator becomes a connected educator and through sharing, is an active participant and contributor to the connected educator movement.

Being a connected educator means connecting with other teachers to exchange ideas, improve your teaching practice, and in turn, make a change in education. It is only through being connected that we can collaborate and help to foster learning for the 21st century and beyond. (Being a Connected Educator)

The gap between what is and what could be in education is larger than it ever has  been.  I believe this is largely due to technology and the ability to establish global connections because of social media. Educators are more connected and more aware about education trends than any time in the history of public education.

Imagine how education could be transformed if all educators use their own personal, often passion-driven voices. The bottom line is that if any individual educator believes there are flaws in the education, that it can be done better, then s/he has the responsibility to say something. I reaching the point that I am starting to believe it is a moral imperative for educators to share what they know to be true with other educators; and with administrators, students’ families, community members, politicians . . . the larger global society.

In his popular TED talk, Ken Robinson made the powerful point that most of the students doing work in your classrooms today will be entering a job force that none of you can visualize. That talk is from almost ten years ago, so we already know he was right and can only assume he’ll continue to be so in the years to come.

Learning a specific skill set doesn’t have the value in today’s world that it once did. Learning how to be more creative (and thus adaptable) – now that’s what prepares students for life beyond the classroom.

Steps to Creating the Conditions for Deep, Rigorous, Applied Learning | Infographic | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

Many school administrators, teachers and parents want the education provided to children to be high quality, rigorous and connected to the world outside the classroom. Teachers are trying to provide these elements in various ways, but a group of schools calling themselves the “Deeper Learning Network” have codified some of what they believe are essential qualities of deep learning (check out how students lead parent teacher conferences in this model).

 

Some of these qualities include learning designated content, critical thinking, communication skills, collaborating effectively and connecting learning to real-world experiences.

How Do Students That Hate School Learn? - Connect Learning Today | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it
It has been my privilege to know many students at many grade and age levels, who have said they hated school. They were all different, referred to as brilliant, disenchanted, disengaged, unmotivated, unchallenged, stubborn, creative, and many more adjectives than a list on a page can hold. Sure, we all realize that students will say they hate school, because that’s the thing kids say, and it is immediately preceded by, or followed by, “I’m bored!” But we need to consider what all students say on this subject, at any level, age, or degree, because there’s no template for students at risk.

We'd think know what they need to know about learning. But teachers seek professional development for reasons other than hanging out with their bffs. They want to refresh their learning about learning, to learn new strategies, to learn about new research, and to have their instincts affirmed. These fundamentals do much of that.

The fundamentals listed in this article are easy to do. I suggest trying to incorporate 1 or 2 a month Into your teaching.

After reading through all 20 fundamentals, it's hard to pick a favorite.  They are all good!  I suggest taking one each day and reflecting on how you use it in your teaching.  If you find you are not using it, find a way to do so.  Try it for a week before going on to the next one.

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking - TeachThought

The Question Game: A Playful Way To Teach Critical Thinking - TeachThought | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

"A four-year-old asks on average about 400 questions per day, and an adult hardly asks any. Our school system is structured around rewards for regurgitating the right answer, and not asking smart questions – in fact, it discourages asking questions. With the result that as we grow older, we stop asking questions. Yet asking good questions is essential to find and develop solutions, and an important skill in innovation, strategy, and leadership. So why do we stop asking questions – and more importantly, why don’t we train each other, and our future leaders, to ask the right questions starting from early on?

In A More Beautiful Question: The Power of Inquiry to Spark Breakthrough Ideas, Warren Berger suggests that there are three main questions which help in problem solving: Why questions, What If questions, and How questions."

Mental health problems often reveal themselves early in life, and the sooner they’re treated, the thinking goes, the better the outcomes.

The Racial Bias in Our Empathy

The Racial Bias in Our Empathy | Effective Teaching Strategies to Maximize Social and Emotional Learning | Scoop.it

Science is highlighting the link between empathy and familiarity, with a focus on racial bias. A new study from the University of Queensland School of Psychology is showing that if we want to increase our capacity for empathy, we need to familiarize ourselves with those who neither look nor act like us.

A number of studies in the past have shown that empathy has a strong racial component. This explains why 2,000 people can die in some far off land and the news barely makes a blip in the West. Meanwhile, a train derailing and killing eight will get wall to wall coverage. It’s not that those eight lives are worth more than the 2,000 lost somewhere else, but the viewers reaction to those eight deaths will be remarkably different. The news, being a for-profit business, knows this and uses the method to boost ratings.

However, this new University of Queensland study differs from previous work in this field by showing us this racial bias towards empathy isn’t set in stone, as previously thought.

No one had talked with Danny about the event. As with many children, what was thought to be A.D.D. was actually a result of trauma.

 

Danny needed his teacher to empathize with him, to give him warmth and a sense of safety — not to wish to be rid of him.
