How Do We Define and Measure “Deeper Learning”?

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's insight:

I love it when the "oldies but goodies" resurface.


"Deeper learning" is when students are able to transfer knowledge and experience from one thing to another, when they are able to make connections.


While teachers can implement strategies to encourage deeper learning, I suspect deeper learning really occurs when teachers provide opportunities for students to make connections in unexpected, whimsical, and yes, innovative ways. Yea, folks, that could be #geniushour.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 1, 5:53 PM

Deep learning and, for that matter, deep teaching is about understanding the learner and teacher as being embedded in community relationships with each other and the learning which happens. We bring autobiographies into the classroom, personal curricula if you will, and these filter the teaching and learning. Teaching and learning can never be the same for each person and in each moment, but it is based on authentic relationships arrived at in context.

A new alternative to college and career readiness exams

Alabama is using a new exam from ACT Aspire to make sure students as young as third grade are on a path to college or career readiness.
Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's insight:

Sure, this is sort of an ad for ACT Aspire (which is ACT + Pearson, by the way) but the most important note is the 2nd paragraph: "State officials wanted to know: What are the key skills you need from students and employees?" YES!!! State education officials surveyed businesses and 2- and 4-year colleges and universities, so when they started thinking about how to do college and career assessment, they had a clear end in mind!

I shouldn't be so excited about a standardized test, and I'm not. I'm excited about the process of education officials having some sort of conversation with businesses and universities. I just hope that's not the only interaction and that it leads to actual conversations, especially after the state officials start getting the test results.

Life of an Educator: 10 ways to remain a relevant educator

Life of an Educator: 10 ways to remain a relevant educator | Teaching, Learning, Growing | Scoop.it

The world is literally changing right before our eyes. ‘What is’ is quickly become ‘what was,’ and what ‘can be’ is quickly becoming ‘what is.’ The future is now and we all have a choice as to how we interact with that future. Education is fortunate to be in a position to not just accept, but to be an integral part of how the world is changing. With all the changes occurring, we educators are forced to adapt and evolve. It’s our level of commitment and willingness to adapt and evolve that will ultimately dictate how relevant we remain. Here are 10 keys to remaining relevant as an educator: 


Via Patti Kinney, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD, Ivon Prefontaine
Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's insight:

I suspect most educators are aware of these, but, as is the case with so much, a gentle reminder doesn't hurt.  "It’s our level of commitment and willingness to adapt and evolve that will ultimately dictate how relevant we remain" and how well we choose to build relationships with our students and our colleagues.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 30, 10:38 AM

The one that is missing is the relational nature of teaching. This means we are in relationships with our students. We are always teaching someone something. It is not just about the tools although they are important when used with care and attention.

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's insight:

3D printing is already changing the world. Kids and others--non-professionals, mind you--are creating prosthetics. The possibilities are essentially limitless. While I don't agree with Avi Reichental (http://bit.ly/XREnF2) that craftsmanship atrophied, I do believe that some craftsmanship skills and knowledge have been underappreciated and some have likely be lost. 3D printing creates new opportunities and, perhaps, redefines what we see as craftsmanship. I'm still decided if that's a good thing.

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's insight:

I don't think this is a simple binary of open OR shut. There are times digital devices should be open and others when they might be shut but accessible. I disagree that when we ask students to keep their digital devices closed "we are closing the door on what is real and relevant in student lives." I believe we are saying instead, "Hey! Let's take a few minutes to think, to hear, to see, and to discuss, and maybe understand a little bit better how the digital complements the non-digital, and vice versa." We might even be saying that there is much to be learned from the non-digital world, which is all real and relevant to our students.

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's insight:

This reinforces what many of us have been saying for a while, but the refresh and new perspective is always good: technology should not drive what we do; we should choose the technology that best suits what we are trying to accomplish. At the same time, however, we should be open to the possibilities that technology affords. So we don't force the technology to fit the pedagogy and we don't force the pedagogy to fit the technology.

Getting Beyond One 'Right Way' of K-12 Reform

Getting Beyond One 'Right Way' of K-12 Reform | Teaching, Learning, Growing | Scoop.it
We need to change the system so that some in K-12 can truly innovate, while others stick to tradition but improve incrementally, Ted Kolderie says.
Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's insight:

Suggesting there is one way to reform schools is like suggesting there is only one way to do, well, pretty much anything. At the same time we want to respect states' rights, individual teaching styles, the whole of the differences and diversity in individual schools, etc., etc., etc. we seem to want to have everything exactly the same. Ain't gonna happen. HOWEVER, we do need to think about systemic change and how that could happen.


Successful change systems encourage and stimulate "initiative, innovation, and ingenuity" and encourage teams "to tackle large, apparently intractable problems." That's part of what's behind genius hour. That's part of what's behind #PBL. There are guidelines ("perhaps something like Common Core," she whispers), but not constraints. We encourage teachers to encourage such activity in our classrooms. Why don't we encourage such activity in our schools and districts? What are we afraid of?

I have a math problem: how many "must-have" apps are there? how many times in a school year will a teacher get to use any of those apps with any degree of effectiveness and efficiency? Rather than try to test any of those apps and then make decisions about they can be integrated in a lesson plan, far too many teachers opt for the "tried and true," which could be the "tired but true."

So when the time for the latter warning came, We raised a people against you to cover your faces with grief, and to enter the Mosque as they entered it the first time, and to destroy all that they conquered with utter destruction. In the above, versus of Zechariah and also Quran Versus which are similar in nature to solve social justice and common good between these communities. Please visit and view the messages and research paper posted at http://www.goldenduas.com in the interest of social justice and common good in the world and spread the same to each and every corner of the world for discussion and to attain peace and unity in the world.  Nowdays, all the governments in the world or collecting huge taxes from tax payers and the same are utilizing for the purpose of peace in the world, but no result.

The Church cannot succeed if it, isolates itself, Not only must Christians reach out to Muslims and other faiths in the spirit of ecumenism, but there is a need to embrace other people of different philosophical convictions. This requires ideological tolerance, maturity and self assurance in what one believes in. Such coalition building is made easier by choosing issues that unite organizations and movements and which have less potential causing divisions. At the same time we need an honest and inventive method of dealing with differences. The global movement for economic justice relies considerably on policy analysis and research conducted by hundreds if not thousands of academics researchers and scholars. ?Our consequences of the changing power relations in today's world is that there is more room in the public sphere for the affirmation of collective values and principles, experience proves that an informed public opinion can be powerful today, and can change governments public and international agendas. Again Churches are challenged to make use of this opportunity. They need to read the signs of time and to make their voices heard by responding to peoples cries for justice and dignity, and by speaking truth to the powers- whoever and wherever their may be. ?Christians do not have ready made answers and solutions to propose. The Bible offers guidelines (love, sharing, justice for the poor) but does not defined one "Christian" economy or "Christian" politics. ?Churches and Church related organizations can initiate public debates and largely use media means to reach a broader constituency, furthermore, regional thematic discussions can be facilitated with the ecumenical family. WCC should develop specific analysis depending on the context. ?What are theological implications for commodification common goods? ?How shall we ensure the participation all people in managing common goods in the world? ?How do we deal with power imbalances in the world? ?How can the ecumenical family engage itself effectively and in a coherent and convincing way in addressing global power imbalance? ?How can WCC lead a climate change campaign with social justice as a focus? ?What kind of collective values can be draw for the Churches to guide them in addressing the problem of commodification of common goods? ?The above questions have been answered in our research materials available at http://www.goldenduas.com and alsohttp://www.facebook.com/research of international development solutions and the same are to be discussed by the Churches, public and all its organizations in the interest of public safety, peace, unity, health, wealth, faith, interfaith ?                 Under this circumstances, it is just and necessary that UK, USA, Cambridge, Churches on the International Affairs are requested to accept our research paper and also our research organization as an organization under other faith category to assist the commission to achieve its goal of International Peace and climate changes solutions for the benefit of world community especially Christians, Jewish and Muslims, under the by-law 3.11 of CCIA. In view of the aforementioned submissions in the interest of maintenance of International Peace and Security, UN may be pleased to authorize our organization in the name and style of` Research on International Development Solutions `and also our research report in confirmatory with U/A 96 of the present Charter read with U/A 23 of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights and thus render Justice.  Now, Palestine Muslims are fighting with Israel , both countries are affected and innocent people are killed frequently which is against the Quranic verses 7:137 & 5:33 that no one can claim Israel Government areas which is a place of Israel People but not Muslim or Christian and they can only Allow worship in the Holy Places of Israel .

I'm not a fan of #2" "Punish" with paper as that suggests something is wrong with not using technology. And maybe the failure to complete the task is the allotted time points to a different issue than not staying on task. In fact, this option suggests that some students may need a blended approach to completing a task: being able to use paper and technology until they have sufficient comfort level/proficiency/mastery with the technology not to use the paper. Even better, using paper with technology reinforces the fact that technology is one possible tool for completing a task or solving a problem, which also reinforces the skill development of making choices about which tool is best for which task.
