The Inside-Out School: A 21st Century Learning Model

The Inside-Out School: A 21st Century Learning Model | Education Matters | Scoop.it

The goal of the model is simple enough–not pure academic proficiency, but instead authentic self-knowledge, diverse local and global interdependence, adaptive critical thinking, and adaptive media literacy.

By design this model emphasizes the role of play, diverse digital and physical media, and a designed interdependence between communities and schools.

Making Technology Transitions Less Scary: 8 Keys To Success - | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Technology transitions can be scary for school districts.

New technology often means changing the way your teachers and staff do their jobs on a day-to-day basis. For many people, change is scary. For teachers, this is no different.

There are so many things teachers do in the classrooms that the thought of changing something could tumble the entire house of cards. It’s easy to think that implementing a new technology tool is only about making the technology work, but it is so much more.

New technology requires a change in mindset for your district. So how do school districts implement new technology on a large scale, without too much disruption, while still getting the most of the new tool?

Here are 8 keys to the success of your new technology rollout. You can use these to help your implementation run as smoothly as possible so teachers can get up to speed as quickly as possible, and begin impacting student achievement.

I was a little skeptical on this.  However, if you think about it-it makes sense.  All of this technology used for social media is impeding students from learning to critically think, collaborate, empathize-among other things.  Helping them learn to work closely with others in a school environment will help them learn to engage well with others at work and in society as a whole when they are adults.

There's little better in a classroom than a great discussion.  That's why I really like the ideas here, especially under "Encourage Students to Expand their Answers".  A great discussion fosters learning and students never even know it happened.  I still remember some of the great discussions in past classes!

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, October 8, 8:10 PM

We've been talking about teaching students HOW to think for decades. That's why we've seen trends like Common Core and are seeing movements in STEM/STEAM as well as computational thinking. And because we've been talking about this for decades you'd think we'd begin to make progress in actually teaching students HOW to think. Let's get on that, shall we?

These 7 Strategies Help You Reach Challenging Students More Effectively

These 7 Strategies Help You Reach Challenging Students More Effectively | Education Matters | Scoop.it

One of the most common tasks we have as educators is trying to reach challenging students. It will happen to all teachers of all levels eventually. Every once in a while there’s one student that tries our patience to the limits. Perhaps they’re rude or disruptive. Maybe they’re lazy or apathetic—you name it. Whatever the case, that one kid makes you question why you became a teacher. And that really bothers you.

Characteristics of Effective Learning Feedback

Characteristics of Effective Learning Feedback | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Students work on the feedback provided to them to bring the best out in their performance. However, there can be a possibility that students are getting the right feedback which hinders their growth. Without having the correct feedback it is impossible for students to work on their weak areas. As educators, the feedback provided needs to be of sort that can direct students towards better results.

Blended Learning Ideas for Modern Classrooms: 8 Strategies and 3 Projects

Blended Learning Ideas for Modern Classrooms: 8 Strategies and 3 Projects | Education Matters | Scoop.it

Presenting information to students the right way can be the key to achieving learning outcomes. We see them developing higher levels of interest in what they need to learn. Beyond that, we make learning exciting enough to become a lifelong pursuit for them. There are many different ways to do this in a modern classroom. One of the most popular today is using blended learning ideas. 


There are many benefits of using blended learning in the classroom. Many teachers lack the experience of using technology to help their students, though. Incorporating blended learning projects into the classroom can be a difficult and frustrating experience. This can be turned around with time, and an interest in connecting students to meaningful learning.

Five Practices to Unleash Problem Solvers

Adrian Bertolini's curator insight, October 29, 6:15 PM
For me, the phrase "unleashing problem solvers" brings to mind the barely contained energy of racehorses at the starting gate: The gates open, and the horses fly out of confinement, taking off in a display of their natural speed, grace, and ability. That's what it can feel like in a classroom where children are encouraged and expected to be masterful problem solvers. So how do we release the natural energy for problem solving within our students? In my classroom, I rely on five practices that help students develop critical thinking, creativity, communication skills, and collaboration skills—the "Four Cs" of 21st century learning (NEA, n.d.).

Engaging in inquiry does not mean logging hours in the library or on the computer searching for information. Especially with elementary students, inquiry happens in a variety of settings and experiences. As John Larmer, Editor in Chief of the Buck Institute, points out: “Students can find answers to their questions from many sources, including readings, but also experts, experiments, and field work.”

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn | Education Matters | Scoop.it
Our education system is in need of reform. Most students are not taught to be self-motivated lifelong learners, nor do they come out of the school system with the skills, mindsets, and values required to survive a world of accelerating change. Most students do not graduate to feeling inspired to contribute to human progress.

How Technology Can Expand Creativity and Innovation in Education

How Technology Can Expand Creativity and Innovation in Education | Education Matters | Scoop.it

 Creativity has always been a part of a successful classroom, however recent advances in technology are making it possible to increase the ability for students to use their creativity in academia. With the ability to take and store thousands of pictures and videos, and listen to music in the palms of our hands, our students have the ability to be more and more creative in their projects, assignments, as well as group and individual tasks.

Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 11:06 AM

I chose this resource because I agree 100% with the title. When I have used different technology and different programs with my students, they love it. Students in todays society get bored sitting in class with teachers talking to them. They want to be up and moving around working with technology to help them learn. I hope that this article will prove to our teachers that they must use technology for the benefit of their students. I have been in special education classrooms where autistic students were benefiting so much from programs on the iPad. Implementing these practices is so important to our students. 

Alexander Daron's curator insight, October 15, 11:42 AM

I chose this resource because students can be so creative when using technology in their education. They aren't restricted, and can create assignments or projects that make sense to them. They aren't restricted, and don't have to do exactly what the teacher tells them. I hope that this article will come true for many schools around America. Too often, teachers are afraid to let students be creative with the use of technology, because it is outside of their comfort zone to let the students venture off and create their own learning opportunities.
