The 14 Best Resources on the Web for STEM Educators | Edudemic | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
It’s all over the news: STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education ranks among the country’s most pressing needs. Countless news stories talk about the renewed national concern with educating students in the STEM fields, and policy initiatives such as Common Core push forward with new attempts to fill that gap. But just what is causing this emphasis? And what can be done to solve the problem?

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, November 21, 12:43 PM

Mobile teaching is about planning and executing learning through mobile devices.

You might want to be notified when a student accesses a quiz or reading you uploaded, or leaves a comment on another student’s blog, or shares a self-assessment. Or when a certain number of student’s answer a question correctly or incorrectly. Or when a student reaches a goal. This is one approach to mobile teaching.

How Much Performance Pizzazz Does a Teacher Need to be Effective? - Mind/Shift | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
In other words, a basic element of a teacher’s job — the very way in which they impart information — may not be a part of their training.

Now, maybe that’s not a surprise to anyone who’s struggled to stay awake through a droning 90-minute lecture. But it raises a question: How much performance — how much pizzazz — does a teacher need?

Beyond Worksheets, A True Expression of Student Learning

Beyond Worksheets, A True Expression of Student Learning | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Possession of facts is not learning. What is an important skill is the ability to sift through abundant information, identify what is valid and meaningful, then use it to create meaning and express it. This is why student creation is so important in the new economy of information.

Ken's Key Takeaway: 
"Far beyond filling out answers on a worksheet, these assignments allow for individual talents and personality to shine through. While it’s unlikely that you have ever heard a person say, “that worksheet changed my life,” most people have an assignment from their childhood that they remember with pride because it was meaningful to them. More often than not, that memorable assignment was one that allowed them to build and create."

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners

Heutagogy: designing for self-directed learners | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
While acknowledging that the whole concept of self-determination – or ‘Google
learning’ as it has been called, pejoratively, in certain circles – is fraught with the potential for missing the point, being distracted into rabbit warrens or just getting bad information, we would like to emphasise that this is only a potential.

 

===> Any learning theory is only as good as the way in which it is applied and worked through, and we have seen it produce highly successful results where correctly applied, in the right circumstances. <===

 

Watch this space for chapter and verse, as we will soon be publishing case studies of several recent programmes that feature high levels of learner self-direction.

Learners are changing, learning is changing – and heutagogy can give important clues about rebalancing the burden of responsibilities and permissions in an always-on, networked, instructorless, post-course world.

Stanford researcher explores why cliques thrive in some high schools more than others

Stanford researcher  explores why cliques thrive in some high schools more than others | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Schools that offer students more choice are more likely to be rank-ordered, cliquish and segregated by race, age, gender and social status.

Those are among the conclusions of a new study, published online today in American Sociological Review. The lead author is Daniel A. McFarland, professor of education at Stanford Graduate School of Education. "Educators often suspect that the social world of adolescents is beyond their reach and out of their control, but that's not really so,'' McFarland said. "They have leverage, because the schools are indirectly shaping conditions in these societies."
