Audrey's curator insight, October 30, 2013 11:12 AM

“Children can educate themselves and are good at doing so if the conditions are right."


They also need guidance, in the ways put forward by both Piaget and Vygotsky.  


Materials in the form of educational toys, games, books, where they can make their own selections are crucial.

Audrey curating for www.homeschoolsource.co.uk 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, October 30, 2013 12:01 PM

Children, with appropriate guidance, can provide insight and direction for their learning. They usually know what they like and what they do not like. The key is to elicit information which helps to bring what they want to fruition. I think educators are afraid of these conversations.

Listening and observing can be passive activities—in one ear and out the other, as our mothers used to say. Or they can be rich, active, intense experiences that lead to serious learning.

Such strategies are all about metacognition, or thinking about thinking, and they yield a variety of benefits. Research indicates that learners who engage in metacogniton are better at processing and storing new information, better at finding the best ways to practice and better at reinforcing what they have learned.

No one is average, but we teach to the average. This post explains why we need to design learning environment that meet the needs of all learners.

Education for Life and Work: Developing Transferable Knowledge and Skills in the 21st Century

Education for Life and Work: Developing Transferable Knowledge and Skills in the 21st Century | TEACHING ENGLISH FROM A CONSTRUCTIVIST PERSPECTIVE | Scoop.it

Deeper Learning and 21st Century Skills. Report, July 2012, The National Research Council.

 

Aprendizaje por transferencia- proceso mediante el cuál una persona es capaz de aplicar a nuevas situaciones, aquello que ha aprendido en una determinada situación (Deeper Learning). Se produce Aprendizaje por transferencia cuando ayudamos a los que aprenden a comprender principios generales que subyacen en ejemplos específicos, incluidos en el aprendizaje original. Docencia que enfatiza no solo el conocimiento de contenidos, sino también el 'cómo', 'cuándo' y 'por qué' aplicar ese conocimiento.

 

Por medio del proceso de Aprendizaje por transferencia, los estudiantes desarrollan las competencias del S XXI (conocimiento transfereible y skills).

 

Una preliminar forma de organizar las skills, alrededor de tres amplios dominios de competencias:

 

1.- dominio COGNITIVO (incluye pensamiento, razonamiento, y skills relacionadas)
2.- dominio INTRAPERSONAL (implica auto-gestión, con la capacidad de regular el comportamiento y emociones personales para alcanzar objetivos), y
3.- dominio INTERPERSONAL (implica expresar información a otros, interpretar mensajes de otros y responder adecuadamente)

Struggle Means Learning: Difference in Eastern and Western Cultures

Struggle Means Learning: Difference in Eastern and Western Cultures | TEACHING ENGLISH FROM A CONSTRUCTIVIST PERSPECTIVE | Scoop.it
In Japanese classrooms, teachers consciously design tasks that are slightly beyond the capabilities of the students they teach, so the students can actually experience struggling with something just outside their reach.

Cecilia Rosas's curator insight, December 6, 2013 1:20 PM

 We see struggle as an indicator that you’re just not very smart,  it’s a sign of low ability — people who are smart don’t struggle, we think, they just naturally get it, that’s our theory. Whereas in Asian cultures they tend to see struggle more as an opportunity.

In Eastern cultures, it’s just assumed that struggle is a predictable part of the learning process. Everyone is expected to struggle in the process of learning, and so struggling becomes a chance to show that you, the student, have what it takes emotionally to resolve the problem by persisting through that struggle.
