7 Ways #Reflection Gives #Students #Ownership of their Learning

7 Ways #Reflection Gives #Students #Ownership of their Learning | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
It wasn’t until I actively started to reflect, both by myself in writing each and every day, and also with my wife at the end of the day, that I could open up my world to new possibilities. Reflecting helped me recognize where I was currently at (in my job, in blogging, in being a dad and husband) versus where I wanted to be.

If we don’t reflect, we tend to go through the motions, not conscious of what steps we can take to get better or move forward.

The same goes for students. When students are allowed, given time, supported, and praised for their reflection, something changes. They begin to own their experience, instead of being forced into a series of choices they aren’t sure about.

GwynethJones's insight:

I'm reflecting on reflecting. Note taking, goal tasking, and introspection I think is a great skill to teach our kiddos!

Putting Math and Science Back into STEM Projects @ajjuliani 

Putting Math and Science Back into STEM Projects @ajjuliani  | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Many teachers have done the spaghetti and marshmallow challenge in the classroom and called it a STEM project. It’s a great activity, but is it really a STEM activity? Sure there’s an engineering aspect to it, but what about the other components? Looking back, these types of activities are what we refer to as surface-level STEM activities.

FULL STEAM AHEAD! End your school year with fun projects now! OR....get a great start for next year!

Sample Student's curator insight, May 21, 5:48 PM
As the introduction states, STEM is integrated, it is not and either/or approach to learning. It overcomes the silo effect, in which we impose artificial barriers between each of the sciences and resist any areas of overlap.
This approach means that students' learning is authentic, genuine problems do not recognise boundaries, and a truly wicked problem requires a holistic approach to its solution.

Penny dreadfuls: the Victorian equivalent of video games

Penny dreadfuls: the Victorian equivalent of video games | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
In the 1880s and 1890s, penny dreadfuls were blamed for youth violence and suicide. Did they play a part in the grisly murder of a mother by her two sons?
GwynethJones's insight:

Interesting look at Penny Dreadfuls! Which were AWESOME! Before pulp, before, Gothic, the Penny Dreadful brought it and inspired (I think) the popularity of horror and true crime genre

GwynethJones's insight:

(my blog comment)

 

Wow, Eric - Thank you so much for including me in this post! I'm both flatteredand honored to be mentioned.

I particularly liked "something to be shared, distributed, transparent, and focused on success and happiness."

I passionately believe that sharing & generosity of help and content is, IMHO, key to servant leadership.

 

That branding really is nothing more than a focused mission statement and a clarity of purpose. Defining and refining what can we give our students, our colleagues, our community, and our personal learning network.

Thank you for your inspiration and global leadership!
Cheers!
