Lucidchart – Excellent Web Based Diagramming and Charts, Free for Educators and Students

Lucidchart – Excellent Web Based Diagramming and Charts, Free for Educators and Students | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it

Lucidchart is an online diagramming program that gives away free licenses to educators and students. I’d like to share some of the feedback I’ve received from educators at every level. They’ve said that we are filling a need for online visual communication, whether that’s Venn diagrams, flowcharts, graphic organizers, or mind maps.

The Power of Feedback John Hattie and Helen Timperley

Feedback is one of the most powerful influences on learning and achievement, but this impact can be either positive or negative. Its power is frequently mentioned in articles about learning and teaching, but surprisingly few recent studies have systematically investigated its meaning. This article provides a conceptual analysis of feedback and reviews the evidence related to its impact on learning and achievement. This evidence shows that although feedback is among the major influences, the type of feedback and the way it is given can be differentially effective. A model of feedback is then proposed that identifies the particular properties and circumstances that make it effective, and some typically thorny issues are discussed, including the timing of feedback and the effects of positive and negative feedback. Finally, this analysis is used to suggest ways in which feedback can be used to enhance its effectiveness in classrooms.
Stephen Gwilliam's insight:
With increasingly evidence of what really has the best effect on student learning, what strategies are your teachers engaged in that really hit or don't hit the mark?

It concerns me that we are travelling down a path well worn which has failed in other parts of the world. We need to influence the shape of our testing regime before we suffer the same consequences as described in this article and in the recent senate review into NAPLAN.

45 Design Thinking Resources for Educators - InformED

45 Design Thinking Resources for Educators - InformED | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it

"Design thinking consists of four key elements: Defining the Problem, Creating and Considering Multiple Options, Refining Selected Directions, and Executing the Best Plan of Action.

An early example of design thinking would have been Edison’s invention of the light bulb. This invention carried with it a “human-centered design ethos,” meaning Edison was able to envision how people would want to use what he made, and then engineered toward that insight. He created an entirely new marketplace for his product, not just a single device modeled after preceding devices of similar use.

In education, design thinking empowers students to realize that they can create their own futures by borrowing frameworks from other areas, which allows them to design their own participation and experiences. For example, game designer Katie Salen has talked about her students experiencing video game design and implementing those principles into the classroom; she said her students interact within a framework that allows them to take on social challenges as designers..."

Responsibility vs Accountability

Responsibility vs Accountability | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it
If learners take responsibility for their learning, they will be more motivated to learn. If teachers are accountable for their learning, then there is no reason to be motivated other than for a grade.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 15, 2013 12:10 PM

Responsibility means a moral obligation and something taken upon one's self.

Accountability is more of a social contract or social obligation. Accountability can be measurable. If teachers are accountable for their learners' learning, then why would learners feel responsible for their own learning?


When learners feel a sense of ownership, they want to engage in academic tasks and persist in learning. If teachers and learners are learners first, then responsibility comes with being a learner. Learners of all ages become responsible for their learning when they own and drive their learning.

So what is it? Teachers and learners need to be accountable for their own learning by taking responsibility for their learning. What do you see as the difference between accountability and responsibility?

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 30, 2013 5:07 PM

My goal is always to encourage students to take ownership of their learning.  What you learn is yours-- it can't be taken away!

A New Pedagogy is Emerging...And Online Learning is a Key Contributing Factor | Contact North | Tuggeranong Schools Network | Scoop.it
In all the discussion about learning management systems, open educational resources (OERs), massive open online courses (MOOCs), and the benefits and challenges of online learning, perhaps the most important issues concern how technology is changing the way we teach, and - more importantly - the way students learn. For want of a better term, we call this “pedagogy.” What is clear is that major changes in the way we teach post-secondary students are being triggered by online learning and the new technologies that increase flexibility in, and access to, post-secondary education.
Stephen Gwilliam's insight:
Is there an opportunity for #TSNet school leaders and teachers here? How can we ensure the new UC education training investment identified in the Budget supports us in developing the necessary online instructional strategies to deliver online or blended mode learning for our students?

The World Is My School: Welcome to the Era of Personalized Learning | World Future Society

Future learning will become both more social. Humans have always been learning, but how we learn has changed over time. The earliest means of education were highly personal: Oral histories passed from adults to children, informal or formal apprenticeships, and one-on-one tutoring have all been used in the early history of most cultures. It’s only been in the last two centuries that we’ve used formalized systems of mass public education (aka industrialized education).
