3 Non Negotiables When Teaching Students to Evaluate Their Own Learning

3 Non Negotiables When Teaching Students to Evaluate Their Own Learning | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Equity in the classroom is critical, but beware of conformity under the guise of fairness. Elementary and secondary students filter data differently. Elementary students think in facts and want to please their teachers. Secondary students consider possibilities and aim to please their peers. Students from different cultural, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds bring their own unique understanding of learning into the classroom. Every student (and teacher) has a why—a reason behind his or her action. There can be no equity so long as rules are absolute, so look for the why.

Does Gamification Education Really Improve Learning?

Does Gamification Education Really Improve Learning? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Students are used to playing games, earning badges for successfully completing challenges and sharing their wins with friends. The challenge of winning a level or beating an obstacle can keep them working until they can earn that achievement. Why not put that natural affinity for gaming to use with games that teach?

You can find the answer of this question in this article which have enough arguments to believe that gamification really improve learning. One of the arguments is that games can increase the motivation through the challenge; for example, the challenge of winning a level make that the students can keep working. However; is necessary that teachers choose an appropriate educational game in order to integrate it in the lesson plan. If you want more about the others arguments to this question, you can click on it.

[PDF] The new Learning Economy and the rise of the Working Learner

[PDF] The new Learning Economy and the rise of the Working Learner | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Until recently, we thought of learning, working, and living as separate parts of our lives. In our younger years we went to school.  We spent our adult years working, and wove in personal events into the time that remained.  Now imagine a world where all of this has changed. In the not so distant future, working, learning, and living will become increasingly inseparable, not by choice, but in order to thrive in a rapidly evolving learning economy.

 

Today, working learners are all around us.  They are individuals who work for pay and are simultaneously going to school to earn a credential. Working learners are 21 million strong with 14 million in postsecondary education and training programs and another 7 million in high schools .

 

Low-income working learners suffer the most disadvantages by working and learning at the same time; however, intentionally linking working and learning through high school provides more opportunities than simply working full-time after high school graduation.

 

While this trend is propelled by working learners who are 30 and older, we need to also remove barriers for younger generations so they don’t get left behind.

 

The rise of the working learner signifies a dramatic shift in how we think about working and learning and what that means for overall life satisfaction: a new learning economy, so to speak. Just like any other economy, the new learning economy operates at many different levels: global, state, regional, and local.

 

Historically, research on working and learning has been analyzed and reported as parallel and separate paradigms with little or no intersection. These reports typically cover working or learning but not how they coincide and interact. With funding support from ACT Foundation and other partnering foundations, researchers have begun examining the intersection between working and learning and the implications for education and employment programs at all economic levels.

 

That’s why we have developed our new Working Learner Antholology of Recent Evidence, which provides a summary of the latest research findings and introduces possibilities that support the vision of a new learning economy where everyone is valued for their ability to perform, and where everyone has an equal opportunity to achieve greater life satisfaction for themselves and their families.

 

Research on working and learning is a new and emerging field and only recently have attempts been made to pull the two fields together.  ACT Foundation, seeing the possibilities and necessity for examination of this area, provided significant investments to bring together these two fields and to shed light on the complicated interactions that working learners face now.  As a result of these efforts, we have a better understanding of the trends, dynamics, barriers, and promising models to support the rise of the working learner.  This work has only just begun and will continue to evolve as new technology and innovative solutions are created to support successful outcomes to learn and earn simultaneously.

 

The new learning economy will give working learners greater access to relevant learn-and-earn opportunities, better connections to work pathways, clearer and more attainable learning outcomes, and increased life satisfaction.  The primary focus of ACT Foundation was to advance these trends in order to discover solutions to reduce the gap between the rich and poor and to increase the quality of life for underserved individuals.

As a foreign language teacher, I am always looking for innovative ways to allow my students to demonstrate what they have learned.

I want students to be able to choose a tool that brings out their creative side and, as a result, leads to a more authentic and meaningful learning experience.

Because learning a language can be difficult, I try to design a variety of activities and projects that will provide students with practice and unique opportunities to develop their language skills through the creation of their projects.

What's Next for Maker Education (EdSurge Guides)

What's Next for Maker Education (EdSurge Guides) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Confession: We at EdSurge are a bit in love with what may be America’s favorite new pastime: making. Indeed, it’s been a busy two years since we published our first guide on making, during which makerspaces have spread into classrooms and curriculum far and wide. But for many, issues of budget and buy-in mean maker education is still far from mainstream. 


 To be sure, there have been changes in the Maker movement in the decade-plus since the first Maker Faires wooed a new generation of DIYers. Along the way, we’ve celebrated successes and asked hard questions. How can we help making become more equitable and inclusive? How can maker ed embrace traditional technology, including computer science? What are the benefits of a maker education, and how do we measure them? In this guide, we hope you’ll find answers to—or at least ideas about—these and other questions that explore the meaning of making."
