10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment

10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment | Cheryl's Educational Resources | Scoop.it
Wherever we are, we’d all like to think our classrooms are “intellectually active” places. Progressive learning (like our 21st Century Model, for example) environments. Highly effective and conducive to student-centered learning. But what does that mean?

The reality is, there is no single answer because teaching and learning are awkward to consider as single events or individual “things.” This is all a bunch of rhetoric until we put on our white coats and study it under a microscope, at which point abstractions like curiosity, authenticity, self-knowledge, and affection will be hard to pin down.

So we put together one take on the characteristics of a highly effective classroom. They can act as a kind of criteria to measure your own against–see if you notice a pattern.

A Beginner's Guide to Station-Based Learning - STEM JOBS

A Beginner's Guide to Station-Based Learning - STEM JOBS | Cheryl's Educational Resources | Scoop.it

"Innovative classrooms are introducing station-based learning to better engage students and provide more helpful feedback for teachers.

Station-based learning is true to its name: it allows students to rotate through stations, learning in smaller groups adaptable to each student’s individual needs. Khan Academy offers a more thorough definition in a video explaining the model:

"In a Station Rotation, within a given course or subject (such as math) students rotate at fixed points in time – that is, on a fixed schedule or at the teacher’s discretion – between different learning stations, at least one of which is an online learning station. Other stations might include activities such as small-group or full-class instruction, group projects, individual tutoring, and pencil-and-paper assignments. Some implementations involve the entire class alternating among activities together, whereas others divide the class into small-group rotations. In the Station Rotation model, students rotate through all of the stations."

"One of the questions I get asked so often is about the resources I draw on for curating educational apps I share with you here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Well, I am subscribed to over a hundred blogs and websites through both RSS feed and social media and my feed stream is always teeming with hundreds of new things to write about. On average , I spend about 3 to 4  hours of daily  sifting, browsing, and curating in preparation for posts to share with you here, I know it is a lot of time but I do love it so much and I feel happy having to share something of value with my fellow teachers and educators."

This marks my second year using robotics and computer science to assist me in teaching mathematics. Every year, the activities get better, the kids are more engaged, and I learn more than they do about how to blend robotics and technology into the classroom. What I am realizing though is that the more freedom I give my students to explore with the robots and code, the more empowered they became to research ideas of how to create something new.
