Can You Tell the Difference? -

In talking with a colleague, he shared his frustration in observing a sheer sense of laziness for some of his students and parents.  He attributed it to society, the time of year, and other external factors.  As he talked, it reminded me about the book by Dan and Chip Heath, Switch.  The Heath brothers write …

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, October 8, 2014 10:45 AM

This article came my way from Craig Cardimon, who posted it on Google+.  This is an argument that I've made for a long time. While I am trained as a technical writer, and I suppose many would consider me a writer since I write my blog, I've never considered myself a writer. Even so, having taken the time to sharpen my writing skills has proven beneficial professionally for me, as I will often end up suggesting edits to content when I receive something that...well...is just poorly written, and is usually written by someone who is not a writer as described in this article). They are often grateful for my input, and I become the hero of the moment. I've often felt that taking the time to write well is truly a reflection of who you are. If you write poorly, it doesn't mean that you have bad ideas, but you aren't willing to take the time to put the effort in to be clear, concise, and cogent. If you write well, it shows a willingness to work hard towards communicating well to get the job done. It really does make a big difference.

Lauren Jackson's curator insight, February 19, 2014 3:50 PM

Another article that provides explicitly the essentials for Project Based Learning. The Buck Institute focuses on PBL to produce 21st Century Skills. Incorporating technology is fundamental in PBL. What worries me, as a future educator, is the unknown. I want to fully prepare my students with the skills they need, but we are preparing them for an unknown future. For example, in elementary school my computer class focused on "words typed per minute." But now students need to know much more than that when it comes to technology. How can we prepare globally competent students when we don't know what the global sphere will look like in 2020 and beyond?

Robin Kinney's curator insight, February 19, 2014 5:12 PM

This picture truly says 1000 words, which is why I like it.  While reading an article, this one or another, is necessary to understanding what PBL is, this graphic is an excellent at-a-glance reminder.  I'd actually like to take this image, transform it into a trumpet flower, then slide the graphic into the front of my planning binder to act as a beautiful reminder of what I should imbed into my lessons.

Harry Greenhouse's curator insight, February 20, 2014 9:57 PM

This article by BIE shows the basics to project based learning. The article shows the major important factors that make project based learning possible and how to do them. Like we covered in class, PBL's need to be significant and relate-able so they are interesting as well as have a driving question that works as the thesis statement for the project.
