When writing an IEP for a student, are you considering their career path- especially if they are at the secondary level? School social workers teach these skills everyday.  Are they appropriately identified and articulated?

SageRave's curator insight, May 27, 2:15 PM

Alot of these skills cannot be taught. Your B.A., MBA., or Ph.D.may not give you the edge you thought they might.

Adaptive learning implements a more dynamic set of learning paths compared to a standard 'static' curriculum. The defining detail of adaptive learning is that it's data-driven. .Learn more:. - http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching/?tag=Adaptive+Learning

Seven Laws of the Self-directed Learner | Andragogy | Heutagogy | eSkills

Seven Laws of the Self-directed Learner | Andragogy | Heutagogy | eSkills | Training and Assessment | Scoop.it

Dr. Bernard Bull is Assistant Vice President of Academics for Continuing and Distance Education & Associate Professor of Education at Concordia University Wisconsin.


In 1888, John Milton Gregory published The Seven Laws of Teaching, providing instruction on what contributes to being an effective teacher.  While this list is over a hundred years old, most readers today will resonate with this list of laws. This is one of a dozen or so books that I try to read each year.  It is a short read that one can usually finish in a few hours.  As I picked up the book to read again today, I started to think about these laws in terms of self-directed learning, rewriting the laws from a self-directed learning perspective (which, by the way, fits nicely with law #7).  


Below is the original list of “elements” from which Gregory devised his seven laws.  Using these as a starting point, I revised them to create the seven elements of a self-directed learner, adding one additional item that did not seem to have adequate emphasis in Gregory’s original list (although it is embedded within several of them).

Alfio Gangemi's curator insight, May 24, 8:13 PM

This could be helpful for an educator as a checklist when developing a lesson plan to ensure that the way the lesson is set out and implemented builds on a students ability to a become self directed learner.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 22, 2:58 PM

These strategies are the essential foundation of what all good teachers do.  Every article and book that I have read about school improvement and effective teaching seems for focus on these same strategies.  We know it...but do we do it?  WITH FIDELITY?  I think that is often where it breaks down. These strategies need to be a part of EVERY lesson...EVERY day. They become highly effective when they are implemented consistently and intentionally.  With all teachers are required to do, it is easy to lose focus on intentionally using these effective strategies.

Alfio Gangemi's curator insight, May 24, 8:38 PM

This is probably the best resource I have found for a pre-service and graduate teacher. As the title says it outlines the top ten evidence based teaching strategies and clearly describes each strategy and how and why they are effective. Very useful resource!.

Steve Whitmore's curator insight, May 27, 9:39 AM

Which of these strategies could you incorporate into your therapeutic groups?  How do you think they might be helpful? 

 

When you observe students in classrooms, do you see evidence of these practices?
