Resources for Filmmaking in the Classroom

Resources for Filmmaking in the Classroom | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Not only is the idea of telling stories with video really engaging for many kids, filmmaking is ripe with opportunities to connect to almost every academic subject area. As the technology to shoot and edit films becomes more ubiquitous, where is a teacher with no experience in video production to begin?

Defining Critical Thinking

Defining Critical Thinking | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Everyone thinks; it is our nature to do so. But much of our thinking, left to itself, is biased, distorted, partial, uninformed or down-right prejudiced. Yet the quality of our life and that of what we produce, make, or build depends precisely on the quality of our thought. Shoddy thinking is costly, both in money and in quality of life. Excellence in thought, however, must be systematically cultivated.

"Full lecture video ~ Presentation Slides ~ Dr. Mayer Bio ~ Background reading

One of Dr. Mayer’s primary research interests is multimedia learning. In his work, he applies basic findings from cognitive psychology to practical questions in learning, teaching, and communication, most notably: How can individuals effectively design visual content (e.g., PowerPoint presentations) to accompany their verbal presentations and written text?"

Most importantly we need to be empowering our learners to take charge of their learning, to show them how they may control their pathways and become genuinely agent learning. Such a process is a significant shift for educators and our knowledge of the processes of learning rather than our subject knowledge is what matters most.

Leadership styles in education – The Seven Secrets to New Age Leadership | #Business #CHANGE #LEARNing2LEARN

Leadership styles in education – The Seven Secrets to New Age Leadership | #Business #CHANGE #LEARNing2LEARN | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The architect leader knows that the ability to create a nourishing and challenging environment for people to grow in is more important than any technical skill she can possess.

Continuous Improvement – The leader of tomorrow will regularly challenge old beliefs and be passionate about learning and about applying that learning in the real world. She will often ask my favorite question “Who is doing something differently then I am and what can I learn from them?”

The New Leader is Authentic. How and who you are is just as important as what you know! Hold yourself to the highest standards – don’t talk the talk unless you are prepared to walk the walk. Don’t expect of others what you don’t expect from your self. Be real, tell the truth. The leaders that are the most revered are those that let the light of who they are shine through in all they do. They are honest, forthright and clear.

Coach/Facilitator – A leader needs to be a coach not a commander. He needs to hold space open for things to happen. It is said that when leaders do their job properly people believe they have done it themselves. Leaders are there to help people see things from a different perspective, to provide questions that encourage learning and to help turn work experiences into learning experiences.

Our new leader is a Visionary. It’s clearly documented that visionary leaders are successful at mobilizing human potential. A vision provides focus. It’s a tool for aligning energy. Clear vision and purpose provide people with a framework from which to make decisions, it organizes action and effort.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 23, 5:22 PM

La definición propuesta por la OECD de competencia global es “la capacidad para analizar problemas global e interculturalmente y desde múltiples perspectivas, para entender cómo las diferencias afectan las percepciones, los juicios y las ideas de uno mismo y de los demás, y para interactuar de manera abierta y eficaz con otras personas de diferentes orígenes en el base de un respeto compartido de la dignidad humana”. Esta es una competencia compleja que está a su vez constituida por una serie de conocimientos, habilidades, actitudes y valores que deben ser adquiridos a lo largo de la vida: conocimiento intercultural, conocimiento de problemas globales, capacidad analítica y de pensamiento crítico, empatía, flexibilidad, apertura a personas de otras culturas, responsabilidad, mentalidad global, valoración de la dignidad humana y de la diversidad cultural. Esta es sin duda, una competencia clave que debería ser promovida y desarrollada desde la edad escolar.

#RapportAuTravail  #Compétences   "Indispensable en éducation et formation, et en management" 
Nicole Gévaudan's curator insight, June 26, 3:43 PM
"Four propositions are integral to the 2030 Framework: 
- The evolution of the traditional disciplinary curriculum should be rapidly accelerated to create knowledge and understanding for the 21st century. 
- The skills, attitudes and values that shape human behaviour should be rethought, to counter the discriminatory behaviours picked up at school and in the family. 
-An essential element of modern learning is the ability to reflect on the way one learns best
- Each learner should strive to achieve a small set of key competences, such as the competence to act autonomously. A competence is the ability to mobilise knowledge, skills, attitudes and values, alongside a reflective approach to the processes of learning, in order to engage with and act in the world. Global competence is being constructed on exactly this model."

elearnspace › Adaptive Learners, Not Adaptive Learning

elearnspace › Adaptive Learners, Not Adaptive Learning | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Basically, we have to shift education from focusing mainly on the acquisition of knowledge (the central underpinning of most adaptive learning software today) to the development of learner states of being (affect, emotion, self-regulation, goal setting, and so on). Adaptive learners are central to the future of work and society, whereas adaptive learning is more an attempt to make more efficient a system of learning that is no longer needed.

'It's time to ditch the traditional school curriculum and prepare young people for life'

'It's time to ditch the traditional school curriculum and prepare young people for life' | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Our world is getting increasingly complex; so how do we know what is worth teaching and learning?

David Perkins, a professor at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, is interested in how to adapt our curriculums in an ever-changing world. He believes that what is conventionally taught in our schools is not designed to produce the kinds of community members we want and need.

Perkins believes that only by reimagining what we teach our children can we lead students down the road to a more prosperous life.

Here, in a piece that first appreared on the Global Search for Education website, Professor Perkins, whose latest book is Future Wise: Educating Our Children for a Changing World, discusses what is worth learning.

#Makerspace for Education - University of British Columbia MET #makered | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Despite the popularity and trend of the term “makerspace”, educators have to search hundreds of articles, websites and books to determine what this term is, how to begin, where to locate materials and determine the educational significance. Another complication is that the resurgence of this DIY movement found its grassroots in the public population and is just starting to make its way back to education. This makes navigating materials from an educational lens even more challenging.  Makerspace for Education, is a collaborative digital space for educators to explore how to create and use makerspaces in their own environments and will help to transform pedagogies of individual educators through immersion in the context and the support of a community of practice.
