Student empowerment is the strongest connective theme through the 55 posts and interviews I’ve conducted for this blog.  The educators I’ve interviewed all have one characteristic in common: they all enable students to take more control over and responsibility for their own learning.

Audrey's insight:

Absolutely agree, students who take responsibility for their learning do so much better when taking exams.  In addition, when  a student can teach you and put forward their own evaluative commentary, they are ready for university.

Le numérique au service de la pédagogie... 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 19, 2015 9:59 PM

Curriculum-as-lived and currere are not new ideas. They have been forming for the last 40 years plus. We did not need digital technologies to come with this idea. It should have been firmly entrenched and it is not.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, February 28, 2014 12:45 PM

I find it a little comical to call gaming in education a "trend." Is it not true that human children have learned through play since the beginning of time? It is only within the last 200 years or so that we have taken away that concept and replaced it with teachers delivering content to children sitting in hard chairs in perfect little rows with the expectation they would be able to spit back any delivered information on a test to prove they got it. Maybe we should just call gaming what it is: getting back to the real way children learn.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, February 28, 2014 1:24 PM

This thinking has merit if we do not go overboard with it. We need to find the balance between digital and more traditional technologies. Both will continue to be necessary in the world we cannot plan for.

Top 10 Skills for the 21st Century Young Professional [Infographic]

Top 10 Skills for the 21st Century Young Professional [Infographic] | www.homeschoolsource.co.uk | Scoop.it

Via Beth Dichter, Martin Hombre Hormiga
Audrey's insight:

These skills make a lot of sense and all tend to be included in education, right now. In addition to learning the standard topics, most educational establishments incude socio-cultural, moral and practical lessons for students to be able to cope with life in the 21st century.

What are the top ten skills that are needed in the workplace today? The University of Phoenix has published this infographic that provides a look at the top ten skills as well as information on how to acquire the skills. Are you providing your students the opportunity to learn and/or practice these skills?

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | www.homeschoolsource.co.uk | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

 


Via Beth Dichter
Audrey's insight:

Psychology incorporates all of these "things": You should be in the classroom when Freud's 5 psychosexual stages are put forward (humour, lively environment and wonder!).


Start the class with pop music which links to the topic (understanding their world). 


At the first lesson when I have asked students to write on the board what they want from the lessons (the only one of the above they have ever written down was humour). When I asked them to give me examples of what they meant, they could not. When I explained that they needed to tell me what they meant by "fun classes", as I was I trained to teach and tutor, not to make jokes, they were unable to tell me.


When I conducted conformity research by having a group of students walking down the corridor dancing to music played over the intercom to see whether other students would conform by joining in, I demonstrated what they meant by fun. 


I have learnt from more enlightened others that a Tutor / Educator guides by pointing out where to find the relevant information plus discussion questions which allows learners to share information, analyse and evaluate during class. After more questions which stimulate arguments, the learners are given a question to answer.

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

The Psychology of Getting Unstuck: How to Overcome the “OK Plateau” of Performance & Personal Growth

The Psychology of Getting Unstuck: How to Overcome the “OK Plateau” of Performance & Personal Growth | www.homeschoolsource.co.uk | Scoop.it
Something experts in all fields tend to do when they’re practicing is to operate outside of their comfort zone and study themselves failing. The best figure skaters in the world spend more of their practice time practicing jumps that they don’t land than lesser figure skaters do. The same is true of musicians. When most musicians sit down to practice, they play the parts of pieces that they’re good at. Of course they do: it’s fun to succeed. But expert musicians tend to focus on the parts that are hard, the parts they haven’t yet mastered. The way to get better at a skill is to force yourself to practice just beyond your limits.

7 Global Education Facts & Statistics That Reflect A Changing World

Via Maria Lopez Alvarado, MBA
Audrey's insight:

All of these facts make sense.in the 21st Century.  It is necessary to learn about other cultures as youngsters of today will be working alongside people from all over the world.  Learning at least one other language will be essential.  We should be educating children to fit into a world culture, which is being made possible through the "cloud".

We are a global, connected, and digitial world and youth say they want to learn about the world and be better global citizens. Just connecting is not enough. We need a substantially different way of helping children succeed in our schools than we currently have.

Brad Ovenell-Carter's curator insight, November 28, 2013 10:20 AM

Totally agree. However, might we also encourage thinking in pictures for its own sake, that is to free up creativity and language skills--full stop. Print is not necessarily the ultimate or end-form of human communication. 

Lou Salza's curator insight, November 28, 2013 11:14 AM

This is particularly important for students with language learning differences--Lou

 

Excerpt:

"...“There’s something about writing that is a link to your brain,” said Marissa Moss, author of the popular children’s book series Amelia’s Notebook. In the books, Moss takes on the persona of a little girl expressing her ideas about the world and people around her. The books are a combination of words and drawings and look free form – as though Amelia sketched them herself.

Taking a cue from Moss, teachers from Oak Knoll Elementary School in Menlo Park, Calif., decided to have their students keep notebooks in a similar style. The notebooks aren’t graded; rather, they’re a place of private, free expression. Karen Clancy and Andrea Boatright presented the project at the Innovative Learning Conference hosted by the Nueva School recently.

“They’re not used to being given permission to write about whatever they want,” Clancy said. But once her students realized that they really weren’t being graded and that they had freedom of expression, they eventually came to demand time to write.

Moss says writing without fear of consequences is key to developing a writer’s voice. “If you’re perfect you are guaranteed to not write a thing,” Moss said. “It’s like driving with one foot on the gas and one foot on the break.” She has developed some guides to help teachers coax students into using art and writing in their journals at the same time, as a way of flexing their visual thinking along with literacy...."
