Colorado researchers find highly visual-spatial students at Arapahoe School - Billings Gazette | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Colorado researchers find highly visual-spatial students at Arapahoe School Billings Gazette Too many native students have been placed in remedial classes and discipline programs because their spatial learning styles are misinterpreted as “slow,”...
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Great read to remind us that people and students are unique. Uniqueness is something teachers need to never forget.

 

Excerpt:

 

Audio and sequential learners follow directions, said Haas, a former physics teacher turned data analyst. A sequential learner will, for instance, reach for a set of instructions before putting together a model airplane. They typically perform well on timed tests, are organized and think in words rather than images.

 

Visual and spatial learners, on the other hand, grasp the end result before understanding steps to get there. A spatial learner would visualize the finished model plane, Haas said, and then create ways to put the toy together. These learners often have poor handwriting, dislike public speaking, do not budget their time well and perform poorly on timed tests.

The 7 Killer Skills Every 21st Century Student should Have

The 7 Killer Skills Every 21st Century Student should Have | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Back again to the topic of the skills the 21st century learners should have but this time I ll be looking at them from the eyes of a very popular educator and author named Tony Wagner. In this...
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I agree with Tony's assessment. My assessment as a classroom teacher and world traveler is the same. I will point out that most countries are far behind us in general education matters. I will also point out that in my opinion our haphazard, imperfect education methods are as much a breeding ground for creativity and innovation as they are for failure. Great successes have a counterpart of being often way out numbered by failed attempts before achieving the great success.

 

This article provides a great  overview and video about these 7 key 21st century skills:

Boggle Is Better Than Scrabble

Boggle Is Better Than Scrabble | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Scrabble is a game that puts on airs. It’s more than a living-room pastime, its partisans argue. Played at the highest level, it’s as complex as chess.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is a very low tech, educational, practice vocabulary game. I am a secret Boggle fan like the author of the article, so I thought I'd scoop this article to share. This game also fills shorter blocks of time easier than Scrabble.  Making it very workable for end of class or break time clubs or lunch.

 

I once had a boss who once demanded Boggle as an office activity if we had any open time when everything was caught up...He would tempt the staff with homemade soup and bread dinners to get everyone to love the idea and for willing players to join in at lunch. We all had to write or help edit written material a lot so it wasn't such a bad game to get us into.

“You have to be creative and not just think about going to the book store.” ...
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Students are refered to as "Human Capital" in the for-profit Charter schools that are seeking tax dollars to start up privately owned schools. A summer vacation implies time off with paid vacation. This is not the case. Teachers are employed or paid to work a set number of days. Most schools allow 2 personal days to take care of non-sick concerns. Summer, Sring, Fall and Christmas breaks are unpaid days off. One day schools may run like other jobs for teacher and children. Then teachers will be paid more money for more days. students will have to find jobs that will work around school days once summer vacation and Christmas helper jobs cannot be offered when the un-paid breaks turn into paid normal days for teachers and students.


Excerpt:

“The human capital is what’s hard,” said Edward Vandenberg, director of national school development for PUC (Partnership to Uplift Communities) Schools, a Burbank-based organization that develops and operates charter schools in densely populated urban communities. It has 13 local schools.
