School Starts Too Early

School Starts Too Early | 21st-Century Education: Socratic Learning and Radical Radicles | Scoop.it
The later high school classes start in the morning, the more academic performance improves

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

We often take school schedules as being fixed without questioning why they are as they are and if they meet the needs of our students.   Looking at the needs and natural dispositions of student as the basis for planning can lead to some very interesting innovations in how, where, and when we teach and learn.

Why don't we change? This is something so-called reformers can change if they have the will.

Reports Reveal Millions of Jobs are Threatened by Automation: Does This Spell Doom?

Reports Reveal Millions of Jobs are Threatened by Automation: Does This Spell Doom? | 21st-Century Education: Socratic Learning and Radical Radicles | Scoop.it
Jobs in transportation, logistics, and administrative support are some of the most susceptible. Jobs at low risk of automation consist of generalist occupations requiring knowledge of human heuristics (problem solving), and occupations involving the development of novel ideas and artifacts. In other words, the common denominator for low risk jobs is that they are intensive in social and creative skills.

Welcome to the “Choose Your Own Adventure” Future of Learning — Bright — Medium

Welcome to the "Choose Your Own Adventure" Future of Learning - Bright - Medium
What will school look like in 2050? Teachers from six countries respond.
W. Bradley Gooderham's insight:

“Technology like Evernote, Google, and Siri will be standard and will change what teachers value and test for. Basically, if you can ask Siri to answer a question, then you will not be evaluated on that. Instead, learning will be project based. Students will be evaluated on critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. Literature and math will still be taught, but they will be taught differently. Math will be taught as a way of learning how to solve problems and puzzles. In literature, students will be asked what a story means to them. Instead of taking tests, students will show learning through creative projects. The role of teachers will be to guide students in the areas where they need guidance as innovators. How do you get kids to be innovative? You let them. You get out of their way.” —Nicholas Provenzano, educator in Michigan, United States

The Power of Experiential Learning

I wish schools at every level did more to enable teachers to create opportunities for students to practice experiential learning—a model critical for our world as the pace of change accelerates. Its results cannot be captured on a standardized test; in fact, it stands in opposition to standardized teaching to a test, because at its core are innovation and invention.

And if the university can produce a physicist as brilliant as the eventual Nobel Laureate Julian Schwinger, does it matter if he had no interest in high-school European history?

Growth mindset guru Carol Dweck says teachers and parents often use her research incorrectly - The Hechinger Report

Growth mindset guru Carol Dweck says teachers and parents often use her research incorrectly - The Hechinger Report | 21st-Century Education: Socratic Learning and Radical Radicles | Scoop.it
Stanford psychology professor Carol Dweck has become something of a cult figure in education and parenting circles. Her research into boosting student motivation has spawned a mini industry of consultants, sold more than a million books and changed the way that many adults praise children. Dweck believes too many students are hobbled by the belief that intelligence …

 

Praising effort alone 

Many parents and teachers have interpreted Dweck’s work to mean that they should praise a child’s effort, such as “I’m proud that you tried really hard,” or “I see how much effort you put into this.” Or teachers sometimes give A’s on assignments if a child has attempted all of the questions, regardless of whether the answers are good or not.

“It’s like the consolation prize. ‘Oh, at least you worked hard,'” said Dweck. “What if they didn’t make progress or they didn’t learn?”

Praising effort alone, she says, is useless when the child is getting everything wrong and not making progress. Either students will feel misled when they are eventually confronted with the reality of their low achievement, or the hollow praise will convey adults’ low expectations for them.

Rosemary Tyrrell's curator insight, November 25, 2015 11:55 AM

Effort without results is hardly better for learning than results without effort.

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, November 27, 2015 6:57 PM

It's important that praise be aligned with relevant and useful feedback. All learners need to know what they are doing right, and what they are getting wrong, in order to progress.

Dixie Binford's curator insight, November 30, 2015 10:16 AM

Implementation with fidelity is important when new strategies from research comes to the classroom.  We often "cherry-pick" what we feel comfortable with but it is necessary to "lean in" and implement as intended by the author or researcher.  Be committed to self-reflection and evaluation of the progress you see in students.  Adjust, refine and commit to improving your execution.
