Learning about learning: What every teacher needs to know - David Didau: The Learning Spy

Learning about learning: What every teacher needs to know - David Didau: The Learning Spy | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
When I trained to be teacher I was told little or nothing about how children learn. Because a lot of what we intuitively suppose about the process of learning is often flatly contradicted by cognitive science this was a huge handicap. Since you can’t think about stuff you don’t know, I spent all my time pontificating on the process

The great thing about the knowledge / innovation age is just how much people are willing to pass on their findings and resources for. One has to be discerning of course but once one has sifted through and located high quality, well thought out sources of material it becomes possible to develop exciting, cutting edge programmes which are at least inching towards the meeting the needs of learners today. Here's an example: resources for teaching a growth mindset. Great stuff.

List of Class Discussion Strategies // Cult of Pedagogy

List of Class Discussion Strategies // Cult of Pedagogy | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

By Jennifer Gonzalez


[Listen to this article as a podcast episode: Play in new window | Download (Duration: 38:22 — 53.1MB)]

 

"When I worked with student teachers on developing effective lesson plans, one thing I always asked them to revise was the phrase “We will discuss.”


We will discuss the video.

We will discuss the story.

We will discuss our results.


Every time I saw it in a lesson plan, I would add a  note: “What format will you use? What questions will you ask? How will you ensure that all students participate?” I was pretty sure that We will discuss actually meant the teacher would do most of the talking; He would throw out a couple of questions like “So what did you think about the video?” or “What was the theme of the story?” and a few students would respond, resulting in something that looked  like a discussion, but was ultimately just a conversation between the teacher and a handful of extroverted students; a classic case of Fisheye Teaching.


The problem wasn’t them; in most of the classrooms where they’d sat as students, that’s exactly what a class discussion looked like. They didn’t know any other “formats.” I have only ever been familiar with a few myself. But when teachers began contacting me recently asking for a more comprehensive list, I knew it was time to do some serious research.


So here they are: 15 formats for structuring a class discussion to make it more engaging, more organized, more equitable, and more academically challenging."...

This a gentle, simple introduction to the notion that innovation skills can be developed. Our urban myth is that innovation and creativity belongs to the select few. Creativity and innovation skills can be learned. Like all skills they take time and effort. Like all skills the initial stages are satisfying but also sometimes frustrating.

Kleinspiration: How to Get Started With Genius Hour for Elementary Classrooms?

Kleinspiration: How to Get Started With Genius Hour for Elementary Classrooms? | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
I believe that every single child is gifted and that every kid has a talent which we as educators should help uncover. This is not easy when you have a curriculum to follow and tons of material to teach. But that given we need to make time to work with kids in a different and more creative setting. It’s important to let them explore new things that may not be present in your curriculum but are in your students’ heads all the time. This is how we can awaken curiosity in young children and help them develop creative thinking.

Interestingly though, this idea does not originate in education or teaching practice. It was actually inspired by Google’s “20% Time” rule, which encourages employees to spend 20% of their time working on their own projects and ideas outside Google. This concept inspired the idea of a “Genius Hour” at school.
