We will need to read Dewey about play and community. A couple of others who might want to read are Habermas, Gadamer, and Montessori.

Google Scholar crawls the worldwide web for scholarly articles and research so that you don’t have to.

Scholarly Googlebots relentlessly scour the Internet for academic and peer-reviewed resources that fit your topic search and leave you with more time for analysis, writing your thesis and sharing the results with your classes and peers.

I like that number one talks about using keywords in Google scholar. Students love to use questions and if we can support and teach them the importance of keywords they will be using better quality resources. 
 
Reginald Smith's curator insight, April 29, 8:17 AM
Google Scholar is a better resource than just having students Google their topics. We should really help students get in the habit of finding information from sources like this or other paid databases. (Infobase, BadgerLink, Discovery Education)

The Psychology Behind the 'Flow' State of Mind

The Psychology Behind the 'Flow' State of Mind | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
What exactly is flow? Imagine for a moment that you are running a race. Your attention is focused on the movements of your body, the power of your muscles, the force of your lungs, and the feel of the street beneath your feet. You are living in the moment, utterly absorbed in the present activity. Time seems to fall away. You are tired, but you barely notice.

According to positive psychologist Mihály Csíkszentmihályi, what you are experiencing in that moment is known as flow, a state of complete immersion in an activity.

By: Maryellen Weimer, PhD

 

"Given class sizes, teaching loads, and a host of other academic responsibilities, many teachers feel as though multiple-choice tests are the only viable option. Their widespread use justifies a regular review of those features that make these tests an effective way to assess learning and ongoing consideration of those features that compromise how much learning they promote."

How the Arts can Contribute to Beautiful, Meaningful International Projects

How the Arts can Contribute to Beautiful, Meaningful International Projects | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"Why not base an international project on writing and the arts? As Asia Society notes, “the arts play a critical role in shaping a student’s worldview in ways that are at once deeply personal and universal. The exploration of dance, music, theater, and visual arts allows students to experience their own culture and to meet other cultures and traditions in unique and inviting ways.” Connecting students across borders by using writing and the arts may be the perfect way for the creative educator to develop global competence in students.

"Through examples like these, we learn that when young people use writing and the arts to connect across borders, many benefits accrue. Here are four of the most important:"

Using Formative Assessment Systematically Significantly Improves Learning

Using Formative Assessment Systematically Significantly Improves Learning | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

In the classroom, "using formative and summative assessments in a systematic manner provides valuable information to students and significantly improves learning and achievement; setting objectives and providing regular feedback (including praise) on student progress toward achieving those objectives helps to keep students motivated and on track" (Pages 6-7). My principal, who I will call "Jim" throughout this paper, is working on improving school-wide assessment practices by the implementation of Overarching Learning Goals, gradeless practices, google classroom etc.

A New Research Center for the Study of Failure - The Atlantic

A New Research Center for the Study of Failure - The Atlantic | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"Every kid has that moment when she realizes that the adults she admires aren’t perfect. Few children ever learn, however, that the same is true for the inventors and intellectual giants whose distinguished portraits permeate their history textbooks.   

As it turns out, recognizing that visionaries such as Albert Einstein experienced failure can actually help students perform better in school. In 2016, the cognitive-studies researcher Xiaodong Lin-Siegler of Columbia University’s Teachers College published a study that found that high-school students’ science grades improved after they learned about the personal and intellectual struggles of scientists including Einstein and Marie Curie. Students who only learned about the scientists’ achievements saw their grades decline."

Curiosity: How Parents Foster Lifelong Learning in Children

Curiosity: How Parents Foster Lifelong Learning in Children | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
According to research, intellectual curiosity is the hidden force that drives learning, critical thinking, and reasoning. Curiosity helps children seek and acquire new knowledge, skills, and ways of understanding the world. It is at the heart of what motivates young people to learn and what keeps them learning throughout their lives.

Most of us know that many children can achieve good grades without being curious — by understanding the system of test-taking and dutifully doing their homework.

Curious children, on the other hand, spend a great deal of time reading and acquiring knowledge. Why? Because they sense a gap between what they know and what they want to know — not because they are motivated by grades.

When kids are in curiosity’s grip, they often forget the immediate goals at hand because they are preoccupied with learning. This was the case with young people I interviewed for my book, Tomorrows Change Makers: Reclaiming the Power of Citizenship for a New Generation.  Many of them were so focused on public service that they missed school deadlines or didn’t have time to study for exams.

The young people I interviewed defined their success differently than many of today’s youth. They wanted to learn, not just achieve good grades.

Wow. What a concept.

Big New Growth Mindset Study

Big New Growth Mindset Study | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Using a representative sample of U.S. schools and their students, they found that students doing two twenty-five minute online lessons about a growth mindset resulted in a small but important academic gain (measured by GPA’s), with larger improvements found among students who had a track record of experiencing academic and socio/economic challenges.
They also found greater gains in schools they say “support greater challenge-seeking or academic effort.” That makes sense to me, though their measurement of that climate seems a little odd (if students chose to do more challenging math problems on a test).

Teaching for Global Competence in a Rapidly Changing World

Teaching for Global Competence in a Rapidly Changing World | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it

"The OECD and the Center for Global Education at Asia Society have worked with academics, educators, and stakeholders in the global education field over several years to define global competence for primary and secondary education. The Center also has extensive experience supporting educators to integrate global competence into their teaching.

"A new publication from both organizations, entitled Teaching for Global Competence in a Rapidly Changing World, sets forward a new framework for global competence developed by OECD, which aligns closely with the definition developed by the Center for Global Education, and provides practical guidance and examples of how educators can embed global competence into their existing curriculum, instruction, and assessment.

"This publication was made possible through the generous support of Citi Foundation.

"Key Findings From the Publication
Both the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Center for Global Education at Asia Society have identified four key components of global competence. Globally competent youth:

-investigate the world beyond their immediate environment by examining issues of local, global, and cultural significance;
-recognize, understand, and appreciate the perspectives and world views of others;
-communicate ideas with diverse audiences by engaging in open, appropriate, and effective interactions across cultures; and
-take action for collective well-being and sustainable development both locally and globally."
