What Kids Should Know About Their Own Brains

What Kids Should Know About Their Own Brains | digital divide information | Scoop.it

This short article is geared more towards elementary educators but I think the main idea of it is still pertinent to high school educators--that kids should understand how their brains work so that they can understand how they learn. The term we used to throw around in education classes was "metacognition."  Also, I'm a big believer in telling teens about how their brains work in order to make the point that it is dangerous to expose them to various toxic substances.

Students Must Be Prepared to Reinvent Themselves :: Christopher Dede

Students Must Be Prepared to Reinvent Themselves :: Christopher Dede | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"...today's curriculum standards, industrial-era teaching practices, and drive-by summative assessments emphasize content acquisition and recipe-like procedural skills. These are exactly the aspects of work machines are taking over. Similarly, today's education system focuses on individual accomplishment; yet, collaboration, communication, and conflict resolution are central skills for a future dominated by complex situations that will require multidisciplinary contributions. As my Harvard colleague John Richards and I discuss in our 2012 book Digital Teaching Platforms, today's industrial-era classrooms too often use one-size-fits-all, presentation-based instruction to prepare students for the past rather than the future. We are modeling how to turn the crank on a player piano when students must learn to improvise in a jazz band."

Ginger Jewell's curator insight, January 15, 7:29 AM
There is a quote that references the fact that schools beautifully prepare students for a world that no longer exists.  I used it as my tag line for many years.  Most of us have read the statistics that cites today's students will change careers multiple times.  This calls for a very different approach to learning, from fact regurgitation to using what you know to create new ideas.  Many charter schools , like Big Picture schools, PBL schools and High Tech High have been attempting to change the paradigm for the last couple of decades, and have done so successfully.  What will it take for us to approach education differently?  As long as one shot tests determine the fate of students, we cannot possibly move forward.  It's been time to change for a very long time.  How do we let go of bureaucracy and free our administrators and teachers to make the classroom exciting and meaningful. As Chris Dede says "We are modeling how to turn the crank on a player piano when students must learn to improvise in a jazz band."  What steps can you take right now?

Why America’s School Funding Crisis Is A Race And Gender Justice Issue
Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:
In a nation that can afford to give businesses a $2.6 trillion tax cut and spend at least $4 trillion on endless wars in the Middle East, we can’t seem to be able to guarantee students that their classrooms will be heated nor promise teachers that they can depend on decent wages and reasonable working conditions.
