Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, October 19, 2:37 PM

Don't miss this key paper on educational assessment! 


There is a growing consensus that college and career readiness depends on not just academic knowledge and skills but on a wide range of social and developmental competencies, as well—such as the ability to monitor one’s own learning, persist at challenging tasks, solve complex problems, set realistic goals, and communicate effectively in many kinds of settings.


This is the first in Students at the Center’s new Deeper Learning Research Series—David T. Conley, well-known for his influential research on college readiness, argues that the time is ripe for a major shift in educational assessment.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, October 20, 2:23 PM

How Social Media Can Support Science and Digital Literacy — NOVA Next | Brooke Havlik | PBS.org | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

Paul Darvasi’s high school English classroom in Toronto, Ontario is anything but ordinary – it is blurring the lines between formal and informal education.

 

A lifelong gamer and PhD candidate in York University’s Language, Culture and Teaching program, Paul designed a multimedia, alternative reality experience called The Ward Game to teach One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest to his senior English class.

 

Darvasi uses social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter to provide game instructions from the fictional totalitarian character “The Big Nurse,” played by Darvasi himself.  He did not use social media the first year he implemented the 30-day game, but it vastly improved the student experience in the second. “It allowed for the game to spill outside of the classroom and immerse them in play day and night, weekday and weekend,” says Darvasi who saw levels of engagement from his students he had rarely seen before.

Scavenger hunts and reading make the perfect pair. Discovering new stories, interesting characters, or a great series builds your child’s love for literature as well as her motivation to become an independent reader. As parents we want to grow our children’s interest in reading but sometimes feel like we’ve run out of ideas on how to do just that. …

Whether you teach pre-K or high school chemistry, your students need support with and instruction on how to manage their own time and materials.

 

Yes, we can teach them all of the content areas, we can squeeze in character education and all kinds of cultural literacy, too -- but we also need to prepare our students for how to manage their assignments, take care of their materials, and plan ahead to meet deadlines. School is a natural place to practice these essential skills!

Here are some awesome ideas to help with student time, along with stuff that I've seen in my recent travels.
