Shifting From Pedagogy To Heutagogy In Education

Shifting From Pedagogy To Heutagogy In Education | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

Current education practice places the process and outcomes of learning in the hands of the teacher who determines what is to be taught and how it is to be taught when, in fact, it needs to be in the hands of the learner (Coughlan, 2004). Given these beliefs about people’s ability to learn and an education and training system that disempowers rather than empowers, we decided on the term self- determined learning to describe this innate power of people to learn as an alternate view. Chris, the linguist that he is, then manipulated the Greek word for self, ηαυτος, and came up with the word heutagogy: the study of self- determined learning.

Why the Factory Model of Schools Persists, and How We Can Change It

Why the Factory Model of Schools Persists, and How We Can Change It | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Many of us will trace the recent cry for modern learning reform back to Sir Ken Robinson’s now ubiquitous, Changing Educational Paradigms talk. His first TED talk on creativity in schools is the most-viewed TED talk in the world. It was given in 2006, just under ten years ago. So, a decade later, what is the state of change in learning and teaching? What do some of the leading innovators in education think? What’s the state of the revolution just under a decade “post-Robinson?” Why are the lone nuts like Appino discontent?

We’ve all heard of Minecraft and if you’re a teacher or parent, your kids are certainly well aware of it, too. What started as a dynamic video game that offers social interaction on an interesting platform has transformed into a teaching tool that is changing the way students learn and ultimately the way that teachers teach.

Connect These Modular Marble Mazes To Make One Giant Desktop Distraction - Toyland Gizmodo #makered

Connect These Modular Marble Mazes To Make One Giant Desktop Distraction - Toyland Gizmodo #makered | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Toys are meant to be touched and played with, but there’s one toy that kids (and grownups) are happy to just stare at for hours on end: marble mazes. But Marbleocity’s laser-cut wooden marble runs aren’t completely hands-off; they arrive ‘all assembly required’, making them even more fun.

The Marbleocity marble machines are laser cut from Baltic birch plywood and come flat-packed like the Ikea furniture that got you through college. But unlike furniture, these kits are targeted towards children, teaching them STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) lessons about physics and simple machines using a collection of fun characters in the instruction manuals. All you really need to build them is glue, which is the one tool most kids have mastered.

Understanding Formative Assessment: A Special Report - Education Week | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Formative assessment is one of the most widely used—but poorly understood—instructional techniques. This special report highlights common misconceptions about the approach and shows how formative assessment differs from other kinds of assessments, such as summative or benchmark tests. It also illuminates some ways that educators can use formative assessment in their classrooms to find out on the spot whether students are really "getting it."

The web-based project includes an interactive storybook that introduces the program’s first autistic Muppet, Julia, as part of an effort to teach kids about their friends with the condition. In addition, the website provides digital cue cards for parents to teach their autistic children basic skills, like brushing teeth and washing hands. At this time, the materials are only available on the Internet, not TV.

A Principal's Reflections: Free Resources to Support Your Makerspace

A Principal's Reflections: Free Resources to Support Your Makerspace | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
The embracement of the maker movement is being seen in K-12 schools and districts across the world. As a result, makerspaces are being instituted to allow students to tinker, invent, create, and make to learn.  A makerspace can best be defined as a physical place where students can create real-world products/projects using real-world tools in a shared work space. With natural connections and applications to STEAM areas as well as a focus on self-directed, inquiry-based, and hands on learning, it is difficult not to appreciate and admire the positive impact that makerspaces can have on all students.  In times when many schools and districts have cut programs such as wood/metal shop and agriculture, makerspaces provide a 21st Century alternative to meet the learning needs of our most at-risk students.

There's a Maker Faire in That iPad! 10 Ways to Create Student Makers With Apps - Getting Smart by Alison Anderson

There's a Maker Faire in That iPad! 10 Ways to Create Student Makers With Apps - Getting Smart by Alison Anderson | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

Too often the word on the street is “my school or class has new iPads but we don’t know what to do with them.” The best part about these devices is that they get the learning into the actual hands of students- make learning “hands-on.” That is NOT a new concept. Dewey, Montessori, David Kolb knew this long before the digital age- constructivism is one of the most effective ways to learn anything.

 

These days, the word “maker” can be interchanged for “constructivist” and the Maker Movement is really starting to sweep the country...all students should have easy access to becoming a maker. That’s why it’s time to grab those iPads- whether you have one, a few or an entire class set and get them in the hands of students. Here are 10 types of “makers” your students can become in the classroom along with the resources that will help students construct their learning- 21st century style!
