Authentic Audiences Lead To More Effective Learning

Authentic Audiences Lead To More Effective Learning | education | Scoop.it

"At the end of a project-based learning (PBL) experience, students typically share what they have learned or discovered with an audience. Depending on the project, students might publish their work online, make presentations at a public event, or pitch their ideas to a panel of judges. For veteran PBL teacher Don Wettrick, 'nothing is better than a project that gets community buy-in.' Connecting students with an authentic audience is key, he says, to driving engagement and helping students relate what they are learning to the real world. 'My top two goals are to help students find great opportunities [for real-world problem solving], and then cheerlead them to a great audience.'" | by Suzie Boss

35 Psychology-Based Learning Strategies For Deeper Learning | education | Scoop.it

"Have you ever considered letting your students listen to hardcore punk while they take their mid-term exam? Decided to do away with Power Point presentations during your lectures? Urged your students to memorize more in order to remember more? If the answer is no, you may want to rethink your notions of psychology and its place in the learning environment. Here are 35 critical thinking strategies, straight from the mind of Sigmund Freud." | by Sara Briggs

Homework’s Emotional Toll on Students and Families

Homework’s Emotional Toll on Students and Families | education | Scoop.it

"Researchers asked 4,317 students from 10 high-performing high schools in upper-middle-class California communities to describe the impact of homework on their lives, and the results offer a bleak picture that many of us can see reflected around our dining room tables. The students reported averaging 3.1 hours of homework nightly, and they added comments like: 'There’s never a break. Never. It takes me away from everything I used to do,' says one. Lack of sleep and lack of time were a theme, said the researcher Denise Clark Pope, a senior lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Education and a co-author of the study, which will be published in The Journal of Experimental Education. While the students didn’t report grieving for the children they were just a few months or years ago, they should have. There is something about that phrase — 'everything I used to do' — that makes a parent take notice. It’s not just the hours, Ms. Pope said. Students describe stress and sleep deprivation. 'They feel out of control,' she said. 'They often have no idea when a teacher will assign what. They can't even plan around it." | by KJ Dell'Antonia

10 Risks Every Teacher Should Take With Their Class - A.J. Juliani

10 Risks Every Teacher Should Take With Their Class - A.J. Juliani | education | Scoop.it
As I work with students and teachers there is one common thread that the “stand-out” classrooms share: They take risks. Not only do these students and teachers take learning risks, but they also take them together. They are partners in the learning process, where the teacher is the “lead learner”. My job as a staff …

There are some excellent ideas. The teacher becomes first amongst equals and shares leadership in the process. It it not given. It is assumed at the right moments.

Finland Creates School System Based on Equality

Finland Creates School System Based on Equality | education | Scoop.it

"Finnish education often seems paradoxical to outside observers because it appears to break a lot of the rules we take for granted. Finnish children don’t begin school until age 7. They have more recess, shorter school hours than many U.S. children do (nearly 300 fewer hours per year in elementary school), and the lightest homework load of any industrialized nation. There are no gifted programs, almost no private schools, and no high-stakes national standardized tests. Yet over the past decade Finland has consistently performed among the top nations on the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA), a standardized test given to 15-year olds in 65 nations and territories around the world. Finland’s school children didn’t always excel. Finland built its excellent, efficient, and equitable educational system in a few decades from scratch, and the concept guiding almost every educational reform has been equity.  The Finnish paradox is that by focusing on the bigger picture for all, Finland has succeeded at fostering the individual potential of most every child." | by Christine Gross-Loh
