Authentic Audiences Lead To More Effective Learning

Authentic Audiences Lead To More Effective Learning | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"At the end of a project-based learning (PBL) experience, students typically share what they have learned or discovered with an audience. Depending on the project, students might publish their work online, make presentations at a public event, or pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. For veteran PBL teacher Don Wettrick, 'nothing is better than a project that gets community buy-in.' Connecting students with an authentic audience is key, he says, to driving engagement and helping students relate what they are learning to the real world. 'My top two goals are to help students find great opportunities [for real-world problem solving], and then cheerlead them to a great audience.'" | by Suzie Boss

Emotional Intelligence Is The Best Predictor Of Career Success

Emotional Intelligence Is The Best Predictor Of Career Success | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

'What determines the probable future career success of individuals? Is it intelligence, technical knowledge and skills, their socio-economic background or educational success? Are the forces that make success the same for Generations X and Y as they are for the Baby Boomers? These questions have been researched extensively by recruiters, talent management experts and human behaviour researchers in the past decade. The answers now point to emotional competencies. Researchers for the past century have investigated the determinants of career success. While intelligence has been the most consistent factor in determining job success, the definition of intelligence has expanded to include emotional intelligence. A 2006 study by Accenture of 251 executives in six countries concluded that while intelligence is important for career success, it’s a matter of how you are smart. Interpersonal competence, self-awareness and social awareness — all elements of emotional intelligence — are better predictors of who will succeed and who won’t." | by Ray Williams

We Should Let Learners Struggle

We Should Let Learners Struggle | Montessori Education | Scoop.it

"Allowing learners to struggle will actually help them learn better, according to research on “productive failure” conducted by Manu Kapur, a researcher at the Learning Sciences Lab at the National Institute of Education of Singapore. Kapur’s investigations find that while the model adopted by many teachers and employers when introducing others to new knowledge—providing lots of structure and guidance early on, until the students or workers show that they can do it on their own—makes intuitive sense, it’s not the best way to promote learning. Rather, it’s better to let neophytes wrestle with the material on their own for a while, refraining from giving them any assistance at the start." | by Annie Murphy Paul

The Rice Process's insight:

Meaningful learning is achieved through engagement, unpacking one's thinking, sharing and evaluating.  The notion of learning is considered a process, so many different mental activities should be happening.  A better word choice for "struggle" is to work hard. Students on't need to work to a level of frustration.  Work produces its own rewards.
