The User's Manual To Design Thinking Your Teaching (Infographic)

The User's Manual To Design Thinking Your Teaching (Infographic) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
What I love about Design Thinking is that it's flexible. There are teaching approaches out there that tell us what to do, but it makes more sense for every teacher to teach differently every year, because we each get different students.
Think about it. We don't treat all our friends and family the same. Our interactions with them are largely based on our experience of who they are and what makes them tick. Teaching is the same way. One size fits all approaches do not work.

The challenge is that, in the grand scheme of things, we only know our students for a short time. However, personalization of education is not a fad; it's a thing. So. let's use the Design Thinking Cycle (Empathy, Definition, Ideation, Prototyping, Testing) to improve Teaching, shall we?

Gamifying education: what is known, what is believed and what remains uncertain | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Gamification of education is a developing approach for increasing learners’ motivation and engagement by incorporating game design elements in educational environments. With the growing popularity of gamification and yet mixed success of its application in educational contexts, the current review is aiming to shed a more realistic light on the research in this field by focusing on empirical evidence rather than on potentialities, beliefs or preferences

The Flipped Classroom Approach: The benefits and challenges

The Flipped Classroom Approach: The benefits and challenges | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Flipped classroom learning isn’t all that new. In fact, the concept was already in use by educators in places of eminence like Harvard University as far back as 1991. However, the corporate world often tends to take a “wait and see” approach before wholeheartedly embracing new concepts.

So, what does it mean to flip your classroom? Put simply, it means reversing the traditional roles of class work and homework. Flipped courses provide lectures and other informational material for learners to consume on their own time, via asynchronous self-study content, video-on-demand, or other similar means.

Then, there are also components of the model where other flipped classroom activities, like group interactions, collaborative projects, and instructor-led lectures, which happen in synchronous settings – a conference room, a convention center or a corporate training facility.

Unlike a traditional, classroom-centric course, or a purely distance-learning program, the flipped classroom approach is a blended learning technique that marries the best of synchronous and asynchronous teaching approaches.

25 Mini-Films for Exploring Race, Bias and Identity With Students :: NY Times

25 Mini-Films for Exploring Race, Bias and Identity With Students :: NY Times | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"How do we get students to consider perspectives different from their own? How do we get them to challenge their own biases and prejudices? If, as Atticus Finch famously said, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,” how do we get our students to do that?

"Teachers traditionally turn to literature, history and current events to open up these conversations, but it’s always helpful to have a bigger toolbox to tackle such important and difficult issues. That’s why we pulled together these 25 short New York Times documentaries that range in time from 1 to 7 minutes and tackle issues of race, bias and identity.

"To help teachers make the most of these films, we also provide several teaching ideas, related readings and student activities.

"In the comments, we hope you’ll share how you use these films in your own classroom."

I made my classroom look like the real-world…and test scores soared | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Think about the jobs in today's economy - the ones we're supposed to prepare students for after graduation. Are employees evaluated using bubble-in tests to prove they know the ins and outs of their job? Do they learn and use new skills one at a time in a vacuum? The questions sound a bit silly until you do too often that's what students take away from their education. Why is the culture to drill facts into students' heads just to pass a test?

"I brought a superhero into my classroom the other day. He wasn't wearing a cape. He didn't have an alias. But he had the greatest superpower of all: inspiration.

When you teach using project-based learning (PBL), one brings outside expertise into the classroom. My eighth graders begin the year creating science fiction based origin stories for original superhero characters as an introduction to a greater advocacy unit. Therefore, it seemed natural to bring in an actual scientist. Which brought me to CalTech and Dr. Spyridon Michalakis."

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Metacognition, simply put, is the process of thinking about thinking. It is important in every aspect of school and life, since it involves self-reflection on one’s current position, future goals, potential actions and strategies, and results. At its core, it is a basic survival strategy, and has been shown to be present even in rats.

Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
What is professional development?  It is pretty much anything that helps one develop professionally. At the heart, professional development is about growth and learning.  In the field of education, it seems like many quickly think of educational opportunities that mimic what they see in their schools. As a result, they turn professional learning and education into schooling.  The problem with that is that schooling is too limiting.  In this age, there are many other exciting and high-impact learning opportunities for teachers that extend beyond traditional notions of schooling.  When we hear the phrase “professional development,” certain practices likely come to mind, things like in-services and conferences. In the digital age, there are countless other opportunities for professional development and restricting one’s thoughts to just a few options limits our insight into what is possible for our students.  With that in mind, here is a brainstorm of 20 options available to educators today. This is far from an exhaustive list, but it is enough to start exploring the possibilities.  Feel free to suggest others in a comment to this post.

Personalized Data Units or Personal Learning?

Personalized Data Units or Personal Learning? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The semantics of school reform are sometimes deceptive. This is apparent when educators talk about “personalized learning”. Personalized Learning is an attractive proposition that is, in an increasingly number of instances, ironically characterized by an absence of the “personal”. Many of the emerging “canned” approaches to Personalized Learning are predicated upon false assumptions about student engagement and motivation. Thomas Armstrong, writing for the American Institute For Learning and Human Development, articulates this concern in succinct terms:“I’m taken aback by some of the highly packaged ‘’personalized’’ learning systems now being developed …. These edtech products often give the appearance of offering personalization, but in reality, they more often rate and process a student’s learning needs, wishes, strengths, and aspirations through impersonal algorithms, then generate a profile of the student that includes content ‘’deliverables’’…. Sounds kind of de-personalizing, doesn’t it?”
