Pedagogies of Scale | Critical Pedagogy | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Pedagogies of Scale | Critical Pedagogy | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Teacher learning | Scoop.it

Underestimating students is an epidemic, one that even critical pedagogues and so-called student-centered classrooms can easily fall victim to. This happens at every scale. It’s especially egregious, though, to underestimate students in classes of 20 or 10 or 5, where the student-to-teacher ratio creates more space for the voice of the teacher and less critical mass for student revolt. Watching a teacher drone incessantly to a room of 10 bored-to-death students makes even a TED Talk look blissfully interactive.

This is an interesting article which explores some of the issues surroundng and supporting the use of MOOCs to scale up education. I like the comparison of education to an epidemic.

Curation and Creation Over Pedagogy and Classical Education

Curation and Creation Over Pedagogy and Classical Education | Teacher learning | Scoop.it

Robin Good: What is it more important?

 

To refine a science of how to transmit, explain and illustrate what "needs to be known" or that we empower learners to create their own learning direction, approach, scaffolding and pace, by providing them with the ability to "drive" and "build" their learning value and not by having them become open sponges that memorize and comprehend what we offer them?

 

From the original article by Dominik Lukes: "A self-directed, self-motivated learner, will take any resources (no matter how pedagogically naive or badly instructionally designed – Khan Academy, iTunesU lectures, iPad ebooks, labs, conventional classes or TED videos) and use them to learn.


As the learner becomes more aware of their own learning (gaining metacognitive skills), they will look for resources that suit their learning better. And, in many cases, will create such resources.


That’s why we need to encourage a culture of the remix. Or in starker terms: Curation and creation over education."

 

Rightful. 7/10

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: We're Going 1:1 with iPads!!!

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: We're Going 1:1 with iPads!!! | Teacher learning | Scoop.it

"Can you hear my excitement already? You read that right...we are going 1:1 with iPads in all of our preschool through 5th grade classrooms in our elementary school.

Since I have learned from so many other blogs about integrating technology I plan to share our learning here, but also hope to get input from others on questions that we have.

Here's what led up to this 1:1 decision:"

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: What does it mean to be the "Lead Learner"?

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: What does it mean to be the "Lead Learner"? | Teacher learning | Scoop.it

"When people hear the word "Principal" I am sure that most picture someone sitting in the principal's office, waiting for students that have been kicked out of class.  As our roles change, the term principal no longer seems to fit.  I have found "Lead Learner" to be an ideal role title that I strive to achieve each day. "Lead Learner" is a term that I have often read from others on Twitter, although I believe this term was first coined by Principal Joe Mazza (who calls himself a Lead Learner, not a principal)."

Seems very light-on for the 'stuff'of learning. Seems to me a common failing of the generalist pedagogical thinking and advice.

wonderful resource that encompasses all elements of standards based instruction and what our teachers need to be mindful of in the 21st century as educators.

Reflections from an Elementary School Principal: How to Support My Teachers with our 1:1 Initiative? | Teacher learning | Scoop.it

"In my last post I shared that we are going 1:1 with iPads in all of our preschool through 5th grade classrooms in our building. Now, my question is how can I lead/support my teachers to use them in meaningful ways to transform learning? We are fortunate to have an Instructional Media Specialist that is extremely helpful in supporting teachers to try a new tool. We also will be investing in training from Certified Apple Trainers. But what can I do? "
