Kim Flintoff's curator insight, January 28, 6:29 PM

Curiosity is probably the greatest intrinsic motivator for learning... foster curiosity and you create a learner...

Tonya Ward Singer's curator insight, January 31, 11:57 AM

Provocative article, especially the questions at the bottom, including: What happens when students don't know what they don't know?

 

I ask this for us as communities and a socieity, what happens when we don't know what we don't know?     

 

History has some terrifying answers on what people can do collectively when locked into a set idea of "knowledge."   

 

How can we best leverage technology to support students as critical thinkers, curious and empowered?

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Blended learning combines online and teacher-led instruction. Instead of learning in a traditional, lecture-style classroom, students use laptops or tablets to study independently and move through the curriculum at their own pace. But just handing out computers isn’t enough. Successful blended learning requires teachers to know which technology makes the most sense, and when to shut it off.

Supporting Struggling Readers Online: Tips and Resources

Supporting Struggling Readers Online: Tips and Resources | www.online - educa.com | Scoop.it
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

When teaching new online strategies for reading, the gold standard would be methods already designed for and tested with struggling readers. One of the only current methods that meet this criterion is Internet Reciprocal Teaching (IRT). IRT extends Reciprocal Teaching, an effective method for teaching reading in print-based texts, and adapts the model for online reading. The TICA Research Project  provides an excellent starting point for resources including an overview of IRT, sample lessons, presentations and more.  Since methods specifically tested and deemed effective with struggling readers are limited, we must also draw on other methods that are conceptually designed with research and best practices that we know support struggling readers. Online reading strategies like the SEARCHing framework as described in Reading Teacher and the (PST)2+iC3 online reading formula as Michelle Schira Hagerman and Amber White wrote in Reading Today, as well as strategy guides and sample lessons on websites like ReadWriteThink and Common Sense Media offer promise because they are built upon a foundation of strategies that are been shown to effectively support struggling readers.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

There is a growing understanding of the role that early childhood education can play in building science literacy. Infinitely curious about the world around them, children constantly observe and explore, take in new information, and generate their own ideas about how the world works.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan will be speaking about Online Education and Netiquette

In the meeting, I will be reflecting on my online education and some basic Netiquette. Furthermore, I would like to talk about my personal online advantages and disadvantages.

I also would like to state that we, language teachers have to understand the meaning of learners’ development and the need for lifelong language education. Therefore, communication skills should be worked on continually. In my view introducing new techniques and approaches to language learning seems to be relevant these days. Having knowledge about new methods, students should become active learners. This way students can become independent, mindful learners.

Five Top Tips for Teaching in the Lifelong Learning Sector

Essential #skills for teaching in the lifelong learning sector: http://t.co/Cks8iO9NjH #learntoteach
Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's insight:

Research has often shown that adult students learn best through problem solving and discussion, so make your teaching a two-way conversation. Guide your class through their learning but don’t answer all the questions for them. Encourage your students to ask questions and challenge the status quo. Even if they make a mistake, they’ll still be learning.

 

Adult learners can be trusted to learn independently so allow your class the time and space to seek out key facts and answers for themselves.
