Teaching is relational. Good teachers teach well because they relate to each child. They do not look for shortcuts and understand each child is exceptional. It is essential to know content. When I knew my content well, I taught better. It was less stilted and technical sounding.

If Edtech Efficacy Research Ignores Implementation, How Does It Help Improve Education?

If Edtech Efficacy Research Ignores Implementation, How Does It Help Improve Education? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Many educational research studies use an “intent to treat” methodology which assumes that study participants will use the digital program or tool assigned to them, but ignore the variations in implementations that emerge in actual classes and courses. This approach can have unintended consequences in misinterpreting the impact of the product, or how an instructor could get better results by adjusting how he or she uses it.

By age 5, Gordon says children typically understand and use complex sentences. But studies have shown that about 7 percent of children have what’s known as specific language impairment or developmental language disorder, which hinders their language skills even though they have IQs in the normal range and don’t have autism or hearing impairment.

The definition of Combination Learning

The definition of Combination Learning | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
The big idea of combination learning is shifting the focus from content to the process of learning.

Combination Learning allows teachers and students to work together to “mash” bits and pieces of learning to design entirely unique and personalized learning scenarios. The result is a flexible, self-directed learning environment where the teacher acts as facilitator and mentor, and the student is at the center of–and entirely accountable for–their own progress and performance.

It can be as simple or complex as the circumstances call for. It can be standards-based or open-ended; technology-based or based on in-person human interaction; project-based, game-based, rigorous, supportive, etc. In that way it is more of a shell or template for teachers and students to fill as necessary.

How to Incubate Creativity in School Through Making and Discovery

The Turtle Art project, and the concept of “doing” or “making” before any explicit instruction has been given, is part of the school’s attempt to shake up its teaching. Lighthouse Community Charter has to cover the same standard curriculum as district schools, so teachers have to choose carefully the times when they’ll spend a little more time and creativity on a difficult subject.

Digital tools and software can play a role in learning and doing as discovery. Teaching can also involve solving problems without digital tools. John Dewey was pointing us in this direction regardless of tools available.

When indigenous curricula and provincial curricula are overlayed with each other, they move us beyond the classroom and digital tools.

Humility is essential in teaching. Ultimately, I made mistakes and fretting over them was a bigger mistake. Something as simple as eating a lunch with them each day brought me closer to my students.

What do teachers think about this question? I would ask them too.

It is not that good teachers do not want to hear from their students. I think they do not know how to engage their students in dialogue. They might even be constrained by the very traditions of teaching.

I agree with the point about overlooking teachers as a source of theoretical understanding about their own pedagogy. Fullan might feel he encourages policy makers and local school districts to use teachers as leaders. It isn't happening.

I am concerned about the use of catch phrases i.e. deep pedagogy and deep learning in this case. What do they mean in the day-to-day practice of teaching and learning?

Today’s global employers are searching for employees that have specific skills. Those skills may not be the same needed in 10 years though. In 2009, the US Department of Labor estimated 65% of today’s school children would eventually be employed in jobs that have yet to be created. The number is far higher today. The influx of technology is what has changed the shape of education forever.

A new survey of faculty members and administrators by Tyton Partners asserts that the use of digital instructional technologies, which it endorses, is facing "headwinds" in adoption by colleges and universities. The study identifies faculty take-up of digital courseware and other tools as among the leading impediments to their spread -- but cites faculty members' lack of time and the training they receive from their institutions as far bigger cause than their outright opposition.

Traditionally, we went to school to attain knowledge. The smart kids knew that Columbus discovered America in 1492 and that the square root of 64 is eight. They studied diligently at home so that when the teacher asked a question they could shoot their hand up and be praised for their good work.

 

Today, however, teenagers carry far more information and computing power in their pockets than would ever fit in their heads. So the ability to retain knowledge and manipulate numbers with facility has become, to a large extent, outdated skills. So kids today need to learn how to understand systems and solve problems.

 

Fortunately, there are an increasing number of programs that are designed to do just that. At the college level, programs like Stanford's d.school teach design thinking and entrepreneurship classes have become standard in business school curriculums. More recently, a wide variety of secondary school level programs have begun to take hold and are giving students a leg up.

Effective Teacher Professional Development | #pdf | #ModernEDU #Coaching #Mentoring | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Teacher professional learning is of increasing interest as one way to support the increasingly complex skills students need to learn in preparation for further education and work in the 21st century. Sophisticated forms of teaching are needed to develop student competencies such as deep mastery of challenging content, critical thinking, complex problem-solving,

 

effective communication and collaboration, and self-direction. In turn, effective professional development (PD) is needed to help teachers learn and refine the pedagogies required to teach these skills. However, research has shown that many PD initiatives appear ineffective in supporting changes in teacher practices and student learning. Accordingly, we set out to discover the features of effective PD.

 

This paper reviews 35 methodologically rigorous studies that have demonstrated a positive link between teacher professional development, teaching practices, and student outcomes. We identify the features of these approaches and offer rich  descriptions of these models to inform those seeking to understand the nature of the initiatives.

When people are presented with a problem the first urge is to resolve it. If the computer does not work, they want it fixed. Then they can move on to what they were trying to do in the first place. But quite often the source of the problem did not go away. People also need to understand how the problem was created. This requires time and effort to learn. But when the problem is gone, there is little incentive to learn about the implications and complexities that created the problem.
