Teaching Why Facts Still Matter

Teaching Why Facts Still Matter | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
An unavoidable challenge arises when students realize that no matter how many facts support a certain conclusion, denial and dissent remain. Recently, for example, my government class discussed how, faced with a mountain of scientific data, anybody—including politicians—would refute global warming, or the role that humanity plays in its occurrence. Unfortunately, this kind of discussion leads to students’ doubting the power of truth to influence and inform wise decisions, which in turn makes them question the purpose of working hard to learn at all.

The New York Public Library just released a treasure trove of digitized public domain images, everything from epic poetry from the 11th century to photographs of used car lots in Columbus, Ohio from the 1930s. Over 180,000 manuscripts, maps, photographs, sheet music, lithographs, postcards, and other images were released online Wednesday in incredibly high resolution, and are available to download using the library's user-friendly visualization tool. It's a nostalgist's dream come true.

Chris Carter's insight:
Brilliant! I thought I was being clever by turning song lyric progressions into examples of code (loops, if-else statements, etc.) but the Finns teach loops through knitting in 5th grade! That is the kind of cross curricular, synthetic thinking that is the currency of 21st Century employability.

Chris Carter's insight:
I especially appreciate #2. Society appears to hold the view that teachers should withdraw from some unlimited bank of resources, skill, and knowledge. Teachers must model effective learning throughout our careers if we are to be role-models, by definition.
1. Developing and sharing a vision centered on the learning of all students. 
2. Creating and supporting continuous learning opportunities for all staff. 
3.Promoting team learning and collaboration among all staff. 
4. Establishing a culture of inquiry, innovation and exploration. 
5. Embedding systems for collecting and exchanging knowledge and learning. 
6. Learning with and from the external environment and larger learning system. 
7. Modeling and growing learning leadership.
