Hattie and Yates - Visible Learning and The Science of How we Learn. Section 1 Review.

Hattie and Yates - Visible Learning and The Science of How we Learn. Section 1 Review. | technology and curriculum transformation | Scoop.it

I had a chance to start reading the latest book by John Hattie, written in collaboration with cognitive scientist Greg Yates. It is a hefty tome. Well, it would be if I hadn’t bought it on kindle. I’m a fast reader and I’ve had time on my hands. But I’m still only half way through. What is without doubt though, is that this will be a seminal and important educational text.

Colin Warren's insight:

Great review of the first section: 'learning within classrooms', of the new Hattie and Yates book - Visible Learning and The Science of How we Learn. Looking forward to the next installment... :-)

4 Assumptions We Shouldn't Make in Education

4 Assumptions We Shouldn't Make in Education | technology and curriculum transformation | Scoop.it

We have all been a victim of it. Saying something and making a very generalized statement about education and the people involved in it. Sometimes these assumptions can do more harm than good and we have to be cognizant that painting everything with the same brush is not a good way to do what is best for kids.

An interesting development and possibly a challenge for credentialing institutions and for employers making sense of skills and capabilities. Makes the case for an ePortfolio even more compelling?

All I Needed to Know about College Teaching I Learned as a High School Teacher | Profession | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

All I Needed to Know about College Teaching I Learned as a High School Teacher | Profession | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | technology and curriculum transformation | Scoop.it

by Adam Golub

 

When people hear that I was once a high school English teacher and am now a college professor, they often ask, “how is college teaching different?” They expect I’ll say something about classroom discipline, or academic skills, or intellectual rigor, but I don’t. In fact, my answer is always the same: for me, teaching high school and teaching college are not that different. The pedagogical habits I developed as a secondary teacher have carried over into the university classroom and made me a better professor.

Mark Edmundson's new book calls for renewed emphasis on teaching | Inside Higher Ed

Mark Edmundson's new book calls for renewed emphasis on teaching | Inside Higher Ed | technology and curriculum transformation | Scoop.it

It’s a question many professors may be asking themselves this month, as they prepare for another academic year: “Why teach?”

Mark Edmundson, professor of English at the University of Virginia, answers the question in a new book, Why Teach? In Defense of a Real Education, out Tuesday from Bloomsbury.

But what is a real education – and why does it need defending?

Colin Warren's insight:

I think it's good to talk more about hat kind of education is useful and how to prepare students to be active participating citizens in the future. What breadth & depth is desirable across disciplines?

Do we really need connected educators? | SmartBlogs | technology and curriculum transformation | Scoop.it

To answer this question in the very month that the U.S. Department of Education has set aside to recognize as Connected Educator Month, we need to first examine what a connected educator is. We also need to understand to what it is that educators are connected.

Colin Warren's insight:

Some of us may think this is a trick question and reply, "Of course!" This article dicsusses factors such as social media and a professional (or personal) learning network as sources for information.

Benefits of Teaching Online

 

Whatever the reason, online education has reached a broader population, and I see many businesses and entrepreneurs taking advantage of online teaching for greater reach and additional revenue. While it’s exciting to see such varied audiences creating online courses, the truth is that we acutely need more individual educators to help shape online teaching.

 

Colin Warren's insight:

This article makes some good points about the potential of online teaching (and learning) - it's isn't easy (like any good teaching), but benefits are there to be used.

Critically Examining What You Teach
Colin Warren's insight:

I agree with the proposition that, "a course must seem coherent and meaningful from the learner’s perspective. There must be a narrative, if you will; there must be a throughline; there must be engaging and stimulating inquiries and performances that provide direction, priorities, and incentives." I would also suggest that courses put together in a program must also do the same...
