The Classroom Is Dead — Bright — Medium

The Classroom Is Dead - Bright - Medium

For generations, thinkers have attempted to reimagine the classroom, to improve the classroom, and, of course, to disrupt the classroom, and where has all that gotten us?

Mais uma vez anunciam a morte da sala de aula. Temo que ela permaneça viva - e por muito tempo - pois continuamos a formar professores que a alimentam. Se as licenciaturas mudarem, haverá uma chance de mudarmos a escola, ainda que ela tenha sala de aulas. Se as licenciaturas permanecerem no passado, não haverá um outro futuro para a escola.

Déplacement de paradigme et les méthodes pédagogiques appropriées. 

Susanna Lavialle's curator insight, March 25, 5:14 PM
We often tend to carry on with our typical teaching methods, and sometimes believe that the trainer needs to stay in charge of the learning event. It can be useful to check out this list... stop and evaluate the different options out there that shift the weight from teacher to learner. Surely there is a part of the learning objective that could be covered better through a learner centered approach.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Teaching | Scoop.it

Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learning...

 

Focus ALSO on:

 

5. Emotions.

Emotionally-charged stimuli capture people’s attention immediately. On top of that, the brain remembers an emotional experience better than anything else. In eLearning, you can make this work for you by encouraging emotional response. Many of these tools, such as compelling stories, videos, images, and visually engaging screens can evoke emotion; try to connect emotionally with learners, and they will learn more and better.

.

Create shocking, impressive or surprising moments that grabs your learner’s attention right away.

Audrey's curator insight, March 21, 2014 7:30 PM

Curating is about finding and selecting information in order to learn about a subject. Youngsters can be encouraged to do this  pre-school.  This motivational 21st century skill can be encouraged at home. with educational games toys and and books which stimulates interest.  For example children can learn about  science by interacting with Chemistry Lab; Horrible Science - explosive experiments; Newton's Cradle and Science Museum.  By the time they get to school they are already full of curiosity and ready to increase their knowledge.  Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk

Monica S Mcfeeters's curator insight, March 30, 2014 9:27 AM

By Robin Good,

Here's a short first-hand report highlighting how an 8th grade social studies class teacher (Terri Inloes) has fully leveraged the content curation potential to let her students dive, discover and make sense of topics (in this case social reform movements) that they had not studied before. All by themselves.


Here the steps taken to make this happen:


a) By using the Question Formulation Technique, the teacher prepared pairs of photographs representing each of the reform movements, one picture dating back to the late 19th century, and another representing where that social reform movement stands in today’s society. 


b) After checking out all of the photos, students settled on the pair of pictures that most caught their interest.


c) They brainstormed and refined a set of specific questions, and then shared their thinking with the class. 

d) With the feedback received they selected the topic which they would curate. 

e) At this point students planned their research strategies. By using 5 different graphic organizers from the book Q Tasks, by Carol Koechlin and Sandi Zwaan, students were allowed to choose the one that they thought would help them the most in planning their keyword search strategies. 


f) Students were assigned WordPress blogs and provided basic instructions on how to use them to 

curate and publish their research work.


g) Discovery and real learning kicked in as students proceeded in collaborative groups to research and document their chosen topic. 


You can see some of the outcomes that this assignment produced right here:


General Conclusions

http://tmsredvotingrights.d20blogs.org/


Mental Health Treatment
http://tmsorangementalhealthcaretreatments.d20blogs.org/


Prohibition Acts

http://tmsorangeprohibitionacts.d20blogs.org/ 

 



A very inspiring example of content curation can be effectively applied in the classroom with impressive results. 


Highly recommended. 9/10


Thanks to Nancy White of Innovations in Education for participating, writing and reporting about it.

 Thanks to Robin Good for the fine summary in this insight.

Ditch the resume and pick up a badge, they're not just for Boy Scouts | Teaching | Scoop.it

From tuition fees to transfer credits, higher education issues provoke strong opinions and it’s rare to find an area of consensus. But one issue where there seems to be agreement is the need for students to acquire a diverse mix of skills and capabilities – not just academic training, but also a variety of interpersonal, professional and workplace skills – to prosper in a challenging labour market and contribute to Canada’s future. Unfortunately, even when students acquire such skills, it can prove difficult to turn them into credentials that are recognized in the job market.

10 Things That I Would Uninvent in Education

10 Things That I Would Uninvent in Education | Teaching | Scoop.it

I‘ve had extra time to think over the past couple of weeks. Give me enough flex time, and my mind wanders into thought experiments and musing about education questions and possibilities. This time, thoughts focused upon the idea of un-inventing something. I talk and write about inventions and innovations in education all the time. What about the opposite? That led me to ask the simple question. If I could uninvent in education, what ten inventions would be at the top of my list? If I could go back in time and redirect from the adoption of an invention that dominates contemporary education, which ones would I choose? Below are my tentative answers.


Univent Letter GradesUninvent Credit Hours / the Carnegie Unit / Seat TimeUninvent Bubble TestsUninvent Standard Grade LevelsUninvent Diplomas and DegreesUninvent Common Honor Society CriteriaUninvent the Teacher ClassroomUninvent Standardized TestsUninvent Regional AccreditationUninvent TextbooksConclusion

Of course, I can’t uninvent these ten, and I’m not intending to spend my life trying to eradicate them. Yet, I’m also not going to invest my time and energy in developing them. The most promising practices, models, frameworks and concepts in education today do not depend upon or support any of these ten. As such, if we simply feed and support the good stuff, perhaps we will find that many of thse inventions will find their way into the international museum of the history of education.

They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.
