ICTs and Literacy (the old fashioned kind)

ICTs and Literacy (the old fashioned kind) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The Library of Congress recently announced a set of literacy awards to recognize and honor pioneering efforts in the United States and around the world. That's all well and good, you might say, literacy is certainly a worthy cause, but what does this have to do with ICT use in education in developing countries, the topic explored on the EduTech blog? Potentially a lot.

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning for Teachers

Building a Culture of Continuous Learning for Teachers | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
We’re all familiar with the traditional model of professional development: an outside consultant comes in during the summer or at the beginning of the school year, spends a few hours or a couple of days introducing the new program or initiative, and leaves teachers with a stack of implementation materials.

And then teachers go back to the classroom, put the materials on the shelf beside the materials from last year’s new initiative, and go back to teaching the same way they always have.

It’s no mystery why this model for PD doesn’t spark lasting change in classroom practice. The mystery is why we ever expected it to in the first place.

The truth is, teachers, much like their students, need more than a one-shot lecture to master and apply new material. Effective professional development takes place within a continuous “Cycle of Learning” that includes targeted instruction, planning, application, and assessment.

There are good points made in the article. For example, the current model of teacher education is based on delivery of theory, often as a one time venture and teachers figuring out the practical on their own.

There is no mention of teacher voice and choice in the article. When I have a choice and express that choice in my voice, I want to learn what is being offered. Too often, it is voice and choice that is missing. We do not build cultures. They form.

Assessing Student Project Work

Assessing Student Project Work | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Project work challenges students to think beyond the boundaries of the classroom, helping them develop the skills, behaviors, and confidence necessary for success in the 21st-century. Designing learning environments that help students question, analyze, evaluate, and extrapolate their plans, conclusions, and ideas, leading them to higher–order thinking, requires feedback and evaluation that goes beyond a letter or number grade. The term “authentic assessment” is used to describe assessment that evaluates content knowledge as well as additional skills like creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and innovation.

Authentic assessment documents the learning that occurs during the project-building process and considers the real-world skills of collaboration, problem solving, decision making, and communication. Since project work requires students to apply knowledge and skills throughout the project-building process, you will have many opportunities to assess work quality, understanding, and participation from the moment students begin working.

Rubrics, when well thought-out and well-used, are great tools. The key is to sit with your curricula each time you assign a project and review the outcomes. Second, take time and discuss the rubric with students. What is expected? What do they understand and not? How can they use the rubric to guide their learning? Third, take time to talk and listen as they use the rubrics. A rubric is a conversation.

Perhaps the main reason for this disappointing impact is that the inclusion of technologies has done little to change the “tell and practice” approach to teaching and learning — the predominant pedagogical practice of our time. In this model, teachers tell students what knowledge is and what knowledge is worth knowing; students meanwhile invest their vast capacity for creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration by memorizing and practicing what they were told. The overarching goal of this model is simply for students to accurately repeat the information they were told.

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric

Creating an Authentic Maker Education Rubric | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
While many teachers are excited about the maker movement and may even be creating projects for their classrooms, assessment can be puzzling even to veteran classroom teachers. How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"? By crafting a three-part rubric that assesses process, understanding, and product, teachers can rest assured that they are covering all the bases.

Teaching 21st Century Skills For 21st Century Success Requires An Ecosystem Approach | #eSkills #ICT

Teaching 21st Century Skills For 21st Century Success Requires An Ecosystem Approach | #eSkills #ICT | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
It is almost universally acknowledged that in order to succeed in the 21st century, students must learn much more than the “three Rs” and basic computer competency.

 

The term “21st century skills” is used often in educational circles to refer to a range of abilities and competencies that go beyond what has traditionally been taught in the classroom, including problem solving, communication, collaboration, creativity and innovation. Others define the term as “information literacy, media literacy, and information, communication and technology literacy.”

 

More importantly, students need these skills because employers across a huge variety of industries increasingly demand them. A recent McKinsey report indicated that close to 40 percent of employers could not find people with the right skills while 60 percent “complain[ed] of a lack of preparation.” Even jobs that were once considered vocational, such as welding, petroleum production, and even factory work, are now high tech, and require specialized knowledge that includes not only a robust science background and familiarity with the computerized machinery that keeps heavy industry humming, but also critical thinking and collaboration skills. In other words, 21st century job growth is outpacing our ability to develop a prepared workforce, making it more critical than ever to teach these skills.

Chris Carter's curator insight, July 25, 7:05 PM
I am convinced now that we cannot "put new wine into old wineskins." We need to fundamentally rethink how we conceptualize "school." Bolting on new parts to the old system runs into the problem of the inertia of the old. There is so much to say here. We came into the 21st Century with a model of education that is, practically speaking, a "production" model where teachers stay in front of students and their productivity is measures by hours in front of students multiplied by number of students. The more hours and the more students, the more productive. My school is willing to explore a new paradigm, one in which teaching is modeling how to learn and guiding students toward a lifetime and lifestyle of learning . Such a mindset naturally leads to relational approaches. It is no so much about the numbers, but about learners seeing teachers as learners and learning "guild" leaders, too.

What Is Differentiated Instruction? | #ModernEDU

What Is Differentiated Instruction? | #ModernEDU | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
At its most basic level, differentiation consists of the efforts of teachers to respond to variance among learners in the classroom. Whenever a teacher reaches out to an individual or small group to vary his or her teaching in order to create the best learning experience possible, that teacher is differentiating instruction.

Teachers can differentiate at least four classroom elements based on student readiness, interest, or learning profile:
Content – what the student needs to learn or how the student will get access to the information;
Process – activities in which the student engages in order to make sense of or master the content;
Products – culminating projects that ask the student to rehearse, apply, and extend what he or she has learned in a unit; and
Learning environment – the way the classroom works and feels.

Situated Learning Theory (Lave)

Situated Learning Theory (Lave) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Summary: Situated Learning Theory posits that learning is unintentional and situated within authentic activity, context, and culture. Originator: Jean Lave Key Terms: Legitimate Peripheral Participation (LPP), Cognitive Apprenticeship Situated Learning Theory (Lave) In contrast with most classroom learning activities that involve abstract knowledge which is and out of context, Lave argues that learning is situated; that is, as it normally occurs, learning is embedded within activity, context and culture. It is also usually unintentional rather than deliberate. Lave and Wenger (1991) call this a process of "legitimate peripheral participation." Knowledge needs to be presented in authentic contexts -- settings and situations that would normally involve that knowledge. Social interaction and collaboration are essential components of situated learning -- learners become involved in a "community of practice" which embodies certain beliefs and behaviors to be acquired. As the beginner or novice moves from the periphery of a community to its center, he or she becomes more active and engaged within the culture and eventually assumes the role of an expert. Other researchers have further developed Situated Learning theory. Brown, Collins & Duguid (1989) emphasize the idea of cognitive apprenticeship: "Cognitive apprenticeship supports learning in a domain by enabling students to acquire, develop and use cognitive tools in authentic domain activity. Learning, both outside and inside school, advances through collaborative social interaction and the social construction of knowledge."

There's really a lot more room for innovation in schools than people suspect.

This habit of tradition and routine is exactly why education has remained woefully behind the times. In the business of education, we don’t have the usual market pressures that require innovation. Public education is a monopoly with no real competition to require forward movement.
