When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges | #LEARNingByDoing

When Kids Have Structure for Thinking, Better Learning Emerges | #LEARNingByDoing | web learning | Scoop.it
“When we have a rich meta-strategic base for our thinking, that helps us to be more independent learners,” said Project Zero senior research associate Ron Ritchhart at a Learning and the Brain conference. “If we don’t have those strategies, if we aren’t aware of them, then we’re waiting for someone else to direct our thinking.”

Helping students to “learn how to learn” or in Ritchhart’s terminology, become “meta-strategic thinkers” is crucial for understanding and becoming a life-long learner. To discover how aware students are of their thinking at different ages, Ritchhart has been working with schools to build “cultures of thinking.” His theory is that if educators can make thinking more visible, and help students develop routines around thinking, then their thinking about everything will deepen.

His research shows that when fourth graders are asked to develop a concept map about thinking, most of their brainstorming centers around what they think and where they think it. “When students don’t have strategies about thinking, that’s how they respond – what they think and where they think,” Richhart said. Many fifth graders start to include broad categories of thinking on their concept maps like “problem solving” or “understanding.” Those things are associated with thinking, but fifth graders often haven’t quite hit on the process of thinking.

Lina Kherfan's curator insight, April 3, 2016 8:19 PM
this article talks about the importance of how children think and learn. the author stresses on the fact that for better learning, students need to have a better structure for learning, hence the title. the author states students often do not have a good structure for thinking. students tend just to memorize things and don't know how to do deep learning. the author states that teachers only teach one part of this structure. which is thinking about thinking. the structre for better thinking is not only thinking about thinking though, there is more to it. the only part of it is to monitoring and directing thinking. " When a student is reading and stops to realize he’s not really understanding the meaning behind the words, that’s monitoring. And most powerfully, directing thinking happens when students can call upon specific thinking strategies to redirect or challenge their own thinking."  monitoring is being able to check up on yourself and regulate your own learning and directing is when students can take charge of their learning and direct it to what works for them in their self learning. this article talks about the importance of deeper thinking and learning and then switches to how educators can help with the process. i chose this article because i think that it is an important thing for students in K-12 grades. in my highschool, my graduating year, they had put in place a program called common core, which emphasizes this specific topic in student learning. sadly i was not able to partake in it however i do think that it is important for incoming students learn how to think and learn deeper.

Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device

Twitter as a Metacognitive Support Device | web learning | Scoop.it

Integrating social media into academia is not a novel idea. And since you are reading this, chances are you probably have been utilizing some feature of social media in the classroom for years. What is more interesting is asking why academia should exploit social media and, more specifically, Twitter.
