Alternatives to Student Presentations - @AliceKeeler

Alternatives to Student Presentations - @AliceKeeler | Learning! | Scoop.it
Let’s keep things interesting and mix things up! I’m a fan of focusing on the learning objective, not the assignment. Providing students choices for ways they can demonstrate their learning definitely keeps things interesting!! When we ask students to “create a presentation” or “make a brochure” you can almost hear the groaning in the room since they have made so many of them. I received a tweet asking for ideas for alternatives. A lot of great suggestions followed…

Learning by Doing: A Teacher Transitions Into PBL - Edutopia

Learning by Doing: A Teacher Transitions Into PBL - Edutopia | Learning! | Scoop.it
I have been a high school English teacher for 15 years. Every year, I try to do something a little different because I like learning from the process. After teaching AP Literature for a while, I became an AP Reader. Then, I presented at a national conference. I feel that I need to grow and develop every year. By the time I read Julius Caesar aloud in class for the 55th time, it was time for a change. That's why my new school was a PBL school.

Creating the Classroom Conditions for the Best Day Ever - User Generated Education

Creating the Classroom Conditions for the Best Day Ever - User Generated Education | Learning! | Scoop.it

#Lately, I have become a little obsessed with idea of the best day ever. It is undeniable obvious when you see someone have or experience for yourself a peak experience: succeeding with a difficult, seemingly impossible task; getting a unexpected, amazing gift; finishing or winning a competitive event (depending on your goal); being given accolades for a personal accomplishment.  I personally perceive it as a coming together or congruence of the mind, heart, body, and spirit where all of them are present in the moment and fulfilled. It translates into experiencing a flow state.

So this has led to me thinking how educators can create the conditions for learners to have and exclaim, “This is the best day ever!” Whoever said or made up the rules that school should be serious, boring, or painful? The institutions and places where learning takes place should be joyful and exciting places.

"As I think that leaders should be able to describe what they are looking for in schools I have thought of eight things that I really want to see in today’s classroom.  I really believe that classrooms need to be learner focused. This is not simply that students are creating but that they are also having opportunities to follow their interests and explore passions.  The teacher should embody learning as well."

The All-Encompassing Makerspace Shopping List

The All-Encompassing Makerspace Shopping List | Learning! | Scoop.it
“Sorry, that’s a great idea, but we can’t build it here.”

That’s my nightmare. A student in the STEAM Room, our student Makerspace, approaching me with a brilliant project concept requiring some reasonable tool we didn’t even consider. Of course, there are worse nightmares involving our reciprocating saw or our drill press, but those scenarios are easier to plan around.

How do you come up with an all-encompassing list of tools and materials that will facilitate every student’s wildest dreams, while staying within budget and within space constraints? How can you avoid stifling creativity when you haven’t even polled your students for their interest areas? How do you know when your Makerspace is complete?

Teachers Guide to Project-based Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teachers Guide to Project-based Learning ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Learning! | Scoop.it
According to BIE, project based learning is “an instructional approach built upon authentic learning activities that engage student interest and motivation. These activities are designed to answer a question or solve a problem and generally reflect the types of learning and work people do in the everyday world outside the classroom.”In its essence , project based learning is all about engaging learners in meaningful and goal-oriented learning activities.Technology is proved to be an effective means of creating and enhancing a PBL-based culture in and outside class. Over the last few years, we have reviewed and shared a wide variety of tools and websites to help teachers integrate the ethos of PBL in their instruction. We revisited these resources and curated them into this handy chart.

The School of Fear | Venspired | Learning! | Scoop.it
No matter how we look at it, creativity is just not welcome in most schools, or in the world.   It’s not.   The world says, “Here’s what I expect,” and creativity strolls in the door like that kid tipping back in their chair, writing their spelling words out of order.

It’s messy. It’s hard to harness. It’s like a flame that flickers. You can never grab a hold of it, nor shape it. But you can cultivate it, provide it oxygen, and breathe life into it by allowing it the space to grow.

Yesterday, I received an email from someone who saw my post about TED-Ed's The Writer's Workshop. She was wondering if there is a way to search TED-Ed videos by grade level. That's not a function available on YouTube, but it is a function available on the TED-Ed lessons website. To sort TED-Ed lessons by grade level go to the TED-Ed lessons page then choose "student." In the "student" drop-down menu you can choose elementary school, middle school, high school, or university. You can combine grade level sorting with content search.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity Is In Everything, Especially Teaching | Learning! | Scoop.it

"It’s sometimes said that creativity cannot be defined. I think it can. Here’s my definition, based on the work of the All Our Futures group: Creativity is the process of having original ideas that have value.

There are two other concepts to keep in mind: imagination and innovation. Imagination is the root of creativity. It is the ability to bring to mind things that aren’t present to our senses.

How Emotional Connections Can Trigger Creativity and Learning
Creativity is putting your imagination to work. It is applied imagination. Innovation is putting new ideas into practice. There are various myths about creativity. One is that only special people are creative, another is that creativity is only about the arts, a third is that creativity cannot be taught, and a fourth is that it’s all to do with uninhibited “self-expression.”

From STEM to STEAM; Passing Through Coding, Tinkering & Making by Marco Vigelini | CoderDojo | Learning! | Scoop.it

"A lot of people limit themselves only to use things without wondering how they work internally or without having the ability to look inside and possibly make changes.This means that we renounce a better understanding of the objects that surround us and we become mere passive users of systems, mechanisms and technology.

 

By cultivating the maker philosophy and promoting tinkering and coding, we can lay a solid foundation for those kids and young people who are intrigued by science, technology, art, engineering and maths. We can also involve more girls to encourage them to choose future career paths in scientific and  technological areas."
