A Culture Of Inquiry Through A Forward-Leaning Curriculum | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it

Forget standards and focus on creating a culture of inquiry. Move away from the laundry list and keep our eyes on the prize: A full-on, problem-solving system in which the core outcome is to help student learn to think, collaborate, communicate, and feel. I emphasize the latter because solving problems, especially in the context of creativity and innovation, is a whole-body exercise.

30 Universal Strategies For Learning

30 Universal Strategies For Learning | The Slothful Cybrarian | Scoop.it
“ 30 Universal Strategies For Learning”

As teachers, we’re all trying to better understand how people learn–not now they’re taught in terms of teaching strategies, but more so learning strategies–only not really strategies. Learning actions, or cognitive actions. Strategies for learning.

Self-directed and social learning will undoubtedly be at the core of any sort of future learning–both near and far future. But to improve learning in both self-directed and teacher-centered learning environments, it can be illuminating to look past the activities, projects, and courses to try to see what sort of brain-level actions learners are performing. Like push-ups, wind sprints, and weight training are physical actions that help train an athlete’s body, what kind of cognitive actions train a learner’s mind?
