Supporting Problem Based Instruction
Developing expertise in a Problem Centered Classroom brings together the expertise of mathematics education leaders such as John Van de Walle, Mary K. Stein, and Phil Daro to discover and examine the teaching and learning benefits of focusing on a central challenging problem or set of problems within a classroom lesson. Problem based lessons must be taught in a risk-taking supportive environment which challenges students to apply their mathematical understandings in a variety of situations. - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com

The modern professional learner’s toolkit

The modern professional learner’s toolkit | Supporting Problem Based Instruction | Scoop.it

There is a lot of interest in the behaviour of the Modern Learner, but in the context of work it is more appropriate to talk about the Modern Professional Learner. The Modern Professional Learner learns for, at and through work in many different ways – i.e. not just in formal training or e-learning, but through everyday work experiences as well as on the Web.  In doing so the Modern Professional Learner makes use of a wide variety of tools.

The diagram below shows the key tools a Modern Professional Learner might use in 12 different contexts – many of which appear on the Top 200 Tools for Learning 2016.  How many do you use for your own professional learning? How many do you support in your organisation to underpin learning in the modern workplace?

Students Need to Learn How to Obtain Knowledge: Part I | Supporting Problem Based Instruction | Scoop.it
In this vast digital age, there is more information available than can ever possibly be processed, and the way that students vet this data is incredibly important. While the internet has opened up the world in amazing and beautiful ways, it has also skewed the way information is obtained. Instant knowledge, or perceived knowledge, is available as soon as kids are old enough to type in a computer password or swipe the lock screen of a tablet or smartphone.

Time For A Change to Teaching Math - Teacher Tech

Time For A Change to Teaching Math - Teacher Tech | Supporting Problem Based Instruction | Scoop.it


I want to change the way I teach. I see a lot of students mindlessly memorizing patterns and procedures without any understanding the math I teach them. Technology into the classroom has forced me to do less lecturing and be more student centered and student driven. It is difficult though within the constraints of the calendar to make great changes. I’m expected to give tests and quizzes on the exact same day as everyone else.
