Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Armed with a set of criteria drawn from different disciplines, I identified seven separate intelligences. All human beings possess these seven intelligences, but we differ from one another in which are strong; and in any case, strength or weakness in one (say spatial intelligence) does not predict strength or weakness in another (say, interpersonal or musical intelligence).

 

I would now add a few more intelligences to the list, and others, most famously Daniel Goleman, have proposed yet other intelligences like emotional intelligence. I am no longer invested in my particular set of intelligences. For me, the important advance is that a multiplicity of intelligences has been acknowledged—wits, rather than wit.

 

In this era of succinct messaging, I’ve created a twitter-short formula: Multiple Wits and Good Grits Lead to a Success Beyond Selfies.

6 Principles Of Genius Hour In The Classroom

 

Genius Hour in the classroom is an approach to learning built around student curiosity, self-directed learning, and passion-based work.

In traditional learning, teachers map out academic standards, and plan units and lessons based around those standards. In Genius Hour, students are in control, choosing what they study, how they study it, and what they do, produce, or create as a result. As a learning model, it promotes inquiry, research, creativity, and self-directed learning.

Dealing with Disruptive Student Behavior

Dealing with Disruptive Student Behavior | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
Of course, even when you take steps to prevent disruptive behavior you can never guarantee a disruption-free class. Generally, it is as well to give any sort of disruptive student the minimum attention necessary because time focused on disruptive behavior is time that is not being spent on facilitating learning.  Also, there is a danger of drawing other students into the situation who will then escalate the disruption.  The golden rule of dealing with disruptive behavior is never to do anything that will make the situation worse.  Below are suggestions for dealing with the most common types of disruptive behavior.

Beyond Self-Teaching Online: Using the Threaded Discussion in Distance Education by Clarence J. Bouchat : Learning Solutions Magazine

Beyond Self-Teaching Online: Using the Threaded Discussion in Distance Education  by Clarence   J. Bouchat : Learning Solutions Magazine | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Although there are many documented advantages of learning online, some educators still question this innovative way of teaching because of technical obstacles, because they suspect or doubt its effectiveness, or because they are unfamiliar with the approach. Indeed, the teaching considerations for an online course, versus a traditional in-residence-based course, do change by necessity because of the different learning environments.

 

Making traditional course material digital, converting lectures to streaming video, and assigning tests or writing assignments online are not enough to convert the full classroom experience into avirtual one.

 

What is lacking in the virtual setting is the dynamic interchange among students and instructors. Although their concerns are valid, in-residence educators should find solace in learning that one of the most fundamental forms of teaching, the student-peer discussion facilitated by a knowledgeable instructor, remains as valid for mature-student distance learning today as it was for Socrates. This venerable method remains effective for online students for the same reasons it works in the classroom — because the discourse among students actually builds knowledge and keeps learning focused on their needs. Online, this Socratic method of teaching, also known as a “threaded discussion” or a “forum,” is an excellent distancelearning tool. All online instructors should consider using this method.

David Bramley's curator insight, October 7, 2014 7:05 PM

The go-to activity for most teachers looking to add an activity to their online offering is the forum.  But  the activity is often ill thought through, the teacher doesn't participate themselves and as a result the forum fails to launch!

 

This post looks at threaded discussions and how teachers can use them to facilitate peer to peer discussion that will add value to the learning experience.  Highly recommended

Principles for Design of Powerful Learning Communities (LCs)

When considering the idea of principles, most agree that these are the stated beliefs that one holds about a particular topic, such as life, profession, or conduct.  The use of principles within LCs relates to those beliefs that will guide the creation and sustenance of the community.  When we discuss principles pertaining to a powerful LC we are taking into account actions and beliefs that will become the architecture that guides the operation/functions of the individuals in the LC.

When Should We Lecture?

When Should We Lecture? | Teaching in Higher Education | Scoop.it
There are purists among us who would say that we should never lecture, but I don’t think that’s terribly realistic, and I’m still not ready to totally rule out lectures. As faculty, we bring expertise to learners and having an expert around when you don’t know something can be very helpful. Do most teachers still talk too much? They do. Are lectures fraught with well-established impediments to learning? They are.

@ivon_ehd1

Tony Meehan's curator insight, September 20, 2014 4:57 PM

Working with learners of low SES and whose environment more often than not ensures they have a fixed mindset, it is important that we help them to redefine what success is. Too often it is fixed around being rich, having a big car, house, jewellery etc. These learners then become preoccupied with looking for the short-cut to success, to the riches they believe will make them happy. It doesn't work out like that of course. How then to help the alter their thinking? 


Dweck's work is essential in this. But as this article states it cannot be seen as "a task to complete".  It requires a shift in thinking of all in an organisation, a movement for a whole-school way of thinking, involving also parents or carers.  This article by Costa, Garmston and Zimmerman provides a solid basis for promoting growth mindsets in educators. 

Anna-Liisa Hayward's curator insight, September 25, 2014 3:08 AM
