Collaboration Matters

Collaboration Matters | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it

Blogger's note: This post focuses on the importance of integrating collaboration into classroom practice. In my next post, I'll talk about strategies for successful facilitation of collaborative work...

 

Learning is a social process, and the learning process is deepened when ideas are challenged and learners are pushed to produce work that surpasses their expectations of what they can do.

 

That said, working in groups is a continually challenging process. It is important that students aren't forced to work together on projects where collaboration isn't necessary or beneficial to the final product.

Idee da prendere:

1) le categorie proposte per il peer review (utilizziamole!!) - https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B3Mx1_-3IZ7tRXkzMm8zM2dvZE0/edit?pli=1 

2) le categorie usate per valutare il lavoro di podcasting dei ragazzi: dice l'autore "bisognava valutare una pluralità di abilità/competenze" . proprio quello che dobbiamo fare anche nella nostra scuola italiana./https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hnzI9r6NNwhLDv-LHV0yb72CK5C6d3-xt_k_5zfpuDI/edit?pli=1

Paul's curator insight, January 23, 8:24 AM

Teacher collaboration is the key to future success - we must find more ways to help this process to flourish

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 23, 4:37 PM

"John Dewey believed that education must be " . . . a process of living and not a preparation for future living." This powerful idea is a helpful reminder of the rich, insightful growth and knowledge that can come from deep, collaborative learning experiences."

Therefore, it could be said true learning is about acting out the theory, of rhetoric and reality remaining close, of adults modelling for young people appropriate learning attitudes and behaviours, as those young people, if forced to choose, will copy what you do rather than do what you say!

A collaborative flipbook seems like a great idea. I think I will try Haiku Deck today. 

Jordan Funke's curator insight, June 11, 12:08 PM

This presentation details six highly creative and technology based ways that teachers could incorporate design into their classroom, and use it for assessment. The ideas are as follows: flipbooks, mindmaps, photoquotes, infographics, flashcards and social bookmarking. I like this article a great deal because it in itself is a great example of using technology to design a visually appealing presentation that presents information in a more creative and user-friendly way. It is a designed solution to the problem of getting readers to engage with your content in an information-saturated society!

"We need different, not better..."

"We need different, not better..." | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it

* We don’t need better assessments; we need different assessments that help us understand students as learners and constructors of their own ongoing education instead of knowers of information and narrow skills.
* We don’t need better teachers; we need different teachers who see their roles as master learners first and content guides or experts second.
* We don’t need better schools; we need different schools that function as communities of inquiry and learning instead of delivery systems for a highly proscribed, traditional curriculum.

 

… the idea of a fully networked, progressive learning environment would for the vast majority constitute *different* and would require us... to redefine the future.

Steven Blomdale's curator insight, March 6, 2013 7:35 PM

 In schools across Australia there is strong support for linking learning in Technologies with learning literacy skills. Learning in Technologies places a high priority on accurate and unambiguous communication (ACARA, 2013).Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students. This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teacher have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

 

 

This website suggests various applications that can be used on the ipad to assist special needs students. The list of  applications were selected to improve and develop students reading, writing and spelling. They engage the students through making the activities, fun and engaging, which I think is important when teaching special needs students.

Wow thank you for sharing. This is a very quality presentation. Can I ask how long it took you? I am busy this week, but I want to jump in and give it a try next week. I think that this will be a great teacher resource
Renee Maufroid's comment, July 24, 2012 11:53 AM
Hi Ken!

I certainly enjoyed doing this Powtoon but since the "sound effect" is not working yet (It's a Beta version) I had to find a different way to reach my goal. I grabbed the words and the music on the internet and worked everything in Audacity to have a MP3 that could be used for the whole slideshow.
Powtoon is pretty easy to use when you know where you are going. This one took me about five hours but it was pretty complicated and collecting the sounds and pics was time consuming. I have made another one which is shorter, let's say it took me 2 hours. If you want to see it it's here:

The people in Powtoon are very helpful if you need help.
I'll be looking forward to see what you come up with :-))))
Have anice evening

Student Work – Portfolios of Learning

Student Work – Portfolios of Learning | Teaching & Learning for the 21st century | Scoop.it

Dr Alec Couros (University of Regina) shares some of the best examples of student work from the ECMP 355 (Technology in Education) undergraduate course he teaches. Each example reflects the student's final course PROJECT, the goals of which varied from either "Build a Learning Resource" or "Learn something new using the Internet" type.

 

A range of different types of PORTFOLIOS of LEARNING are shared in this post and are well worth exploring as they beautifully illustrate the creative and personal ways in which the students demonstrated their learning of the course.

 

These include "Summaries of Learning" in a variety of formats:

*Series of blog posts 

*Screencasts

*Videos and vlogs

*Blogfolios

*Animations

* Wikis

 

The design of this learning activity allowed for personalisation in format choice and made provision for the students to progessively document their learning over the duration of the course, as far as I can ascertain. I would be interested to understand what his exact brief was to the students and what rubric(s) he used to assess these projects, if at all. 

 

PS I had a conversation  with @courosa yesterday on Twitter to explore his approach to assessing his students' "Portfolios of Learning". His response was interesting:

"Assessment was customised to each student based on some general indicators (e.g., quality of artifact) with bulk focused on growth. I tend not to use rubrics and try to keep assessment consultative & personlised. Takes more time, but I think it's more accurate."

Teachers all over the world are flipping their classrooms. Instead of doing homework and projects at home, students watch lectures and videos. When they get to class they engage students with activities and tests designed to test what students have learned. While flipping your classroom may sound like a good idea, it requires having a way to present information to students at home. These top 6 apps for flipping your classroom will give you the tools you need to turn your classroom upside down.
