How Do We Define and Measure “Deeper Learning”?

How Do We Define and Measure “Deeper Learning”? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

What is "deeper learning"? The National Research Council of the National Academies of Science released a report, Transferable Knowledge and Skills Key to Success in Education and Work. This report "calls for efforts to incorporate 'Deeper Learning' into curriculum."

This post explores the three domains of competence that are discussed in the report: cognitive, intrapersonal and interpersonal. Each is defined and the question is raised, can deeper learning be taught? The post provides a great overview and here is the link to the full report:

From Theory to Design: Exploring the Power & Potential of ‘Connected Learning’, Part One | The Young and the Digital

From Theory to Design: Exploring the Power & Potential of ‘Connected Learning’, Part One | The Young and the Digital | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

This post shares an experience in the Texas City High School and the implementation of a "digital media an design project with high school students." The author had worked with the school during the school year and observed many challenges including "the daunting and daily task of keeping students academically engaged; the corrosive effects of chronic absenteeism in the classroom; the impact of economic and familial instability on students, teachers, and schools; and the creative ways youth from poorly resourced schools and households are using digital media."

They set to work with a goal: "could we work with teachers and students to create a more dynamic learning environment?"

Read the article to see the project that was developed and what they have learned.

Handig app om dingen die je op het web tegenkomt van aantekeningen te voorzien en te bewaren.

wanderingsalsero's curator insight, October 20, 2013 7:54 PM

I haven't read this article but I'm seriously interested in the question implied in the title.....i.e. how to 'mark up' information and get them on the web.  In many cases, I think that's adequate for most people's purpose.

 

I have yet to find a tool that I found really comfortable for doing that.  Maybe this is it.

iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad

iPad Research in Schools - Use and Impact of the iPad | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

An in-depth study that took place in Scotland, looking at "issues associated with the deployment of personal mobile devices as tools for teaching and learning."
Four themes were identified:

* How tablet devices impacted teaching and learning?

* Leadership and management issues

* Parental engagement

* Professional development and learning for teachers

The post lists six headlines from the study, including (quoting):

* The adoption of mobile technologies on a personal basis significantly increases access to technology for students, both inside and beyond school, with many attendant benefits for learning which include greater motivation, engagement, parental involvement, and understanding of complex ideas.

 * Teachers are equally engaged by the use of a device like the iPad which has a low learning curve enabling them to use it immediately as a teaching tool and a learning tool for themselves.

For more information click through to the article. To download the report you will need to go a link at the end of the articles "iPad Scotland Evaluation."

10 Free Tools for Everyday Research to Teach Search Skills | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"Findings from Softlink’s annual Australian School Library Survey have revealed a positive link between literacy results and school library resourcing levels. The 2012 survey found schools with higher than the national average NAPLAN reading literacy scores received above average levels of library funding and staffing. 

A comparable result was identified between schools with low NAPLAN scores and low funding levels, with the relationship’s significance increasing from primary to secondary school.  These results were echoed in the 2010 and 2011 surveys."

How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) | Edudemic

How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) | Edudemic | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

A look at what hapened at Plymouth South High School last year when one class "attempted to transform the traditional research process to a completely paperless one using a fresh cart of iPads."

A number of goals were "outlined prior to the research process" and included (quoting from the post):

* Students will crowd-source their research to a collective research group.

* Students will incorporate varied media types into their research: web based text, traditional text, audio and video.

* Students will work collaboratively with their teacher and classmates on their research and writing process.

* Students will become proficient researching and writing in a digital environment.

The post alos discusses the process of going paperlesand  "moving forward and going paperless."
