Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 17, 2014 6:12 PM
Chris Watkins' article, Research Matters: Learning, Performance and Improvement, is about the relationship between learning in schools and performance in schools.  Watkins' research concludes that a focus on learning can enhance performance, where a focus on performance alone can depress performance. With traditional instruction, the climate in the classrooms becomes more performance oriented over years of schooling.

A performance-oriented environment focuses on looking good
rather than learning well.

The Hidden Barrier To Learning And What You Can Do About It

The Hidden Barrier To Learning And What You Can Do About It | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
There is a hidden barrier that prevents people from learning - emotions. Instructional designers that fail to take into account the emotional barriers learners face will find their courses met with resistance. It’s important to account for emotions in the design process.

Three aspects to consider to lower emotional barriers in e-learning: 

1. Proper expectations

2. Gamification

3. Idea of the benefits

Anna-Liisa Hayward's curator insight, February 3, 2014 10:33 AM

This article looks at the role of emotions in learning and their effect on motivation on e-learning. It could equally be applied to learning in general, a useful little summary.

Web 3.0 has been shared on this Scoop.it and this table is a bit different from previous ones. What do you think? Is your school heading towards a Web 3.0 environment, where teachers will not only be those whom are licensed professionals but also those who are accesible on line from all parts of the worlld? Will schools graduate students whom view industrywill view as co-workers whom are prepared for a knowledge economy? This table presents what may be in the future. What do you think?

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"

 

"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.

 

Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."

 

This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.

 

And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"

 

What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

How to turn students into curators.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 5, 10:14 PM

We often ask our students to create annotated bibliographies, and this focuses on their capacity to evaluate and make decisions about the validity, reliability and relevance of sources they have found. using Scoop.it, we can ask them to do much the same thing, but they will publish their ideas for an audience, and will also be able to provide and use peer feedback to enhance and tighten up their thinking. This is relevant to any curriculum area. Of course it is dependent on schools being able to access any social media, but rather than thinking about what is impossible, perhaps we could start thinking about what is possible and lobbying for change.

Excellent argument and validation for Instructional Leaders to be at the forefront of the cutting edge in instruction.  That involves conceptual learning, instructional technology that redefines the learning, and quality instructional implementation both in classrooms and in professional development.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, February 10, 2014 4:39 PM

It is wise not to allow allow large dichotomies, perhaps false dichotomies to dominate this debate. Critical thinking, collaborative work and knowledge of content are all important and attainable for good teachers, as they have been. It is a matter of emphasis. Check

It is important to hear from the learners how they are stimulated to absorb information. The earlier this is encouraged the greater the brain power, audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 28, 2014 6:07 PM

John Dewey called what motivates people to learn is "living motivation". We bring our stories and autobiographies to learning every day. We want to add to them in ways that help us construct a future of our choosing that fits within a community. It is about constantly transforming who we are.
