The 7 pillars of classroom practice

The 7 pillars of classroom practice | Educating in the Arts | Scoop.it
Not all research is perfect – or even worth reading, argues Nick Rose. But here, he presents a septet of reliable reviews that time-pressed teachers can bet their house on being useful in the classroom
There are two main problems with the idea that teachers should be reading research. The first is that they don’t have time to do it (see bit.ly/UnreadResearch). Studies by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) have examined methods of encouraging teachers to engage with academic research but report that time pressures – and a lack of opportunities for teachers to work together – appear to undermine the initiatives.

So, if we genuinely want teaching to be a research-informed profession, we should reduce the number of hours we expect teachers to work – and ultimately set aside some time for teachers to read and apply research to their practice.

This is a long and winding article, which explores some of the research about mindset, memory, changing learner attitudes, etc. Nick Rose argues teachers should be given time to be current on the research if it is to be useful and meaningful to their practices.

A Powerful Way to Teach Kindness in the Art Room - The Art of Ed

A Powerful Way to Teach Kindness in the Art Room - The Art of Ed | Educating in the Arts | Scoop.it
Every day in our schools we see unkind acts and hear hurtful words. Unfortunately, bullying and bullies will always exist. However, in the age of cyberbullying, it is even more essential for us to instill ideals of positivity and kindness in our students. One way to do this is by talking openly about it. These conversations aren’t …

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum | Educating in the Arts | Scoop.it
As an administrator, whenever I walk into a teacher’s classroom, one of the first things I almost always subconsciously look for is whether or not the students are engaged in inquiry. However, telling a teacher, “Your students need to engage in more inquiry,” is comparable to letting a comedian know she needs to be funnier or asking a pizzaiolo to make a better dough. And, vague directives in the absence of explicit instruction typically generate anxiety.

To avoid these anxieties, and for progress to actually take place, we need to drill down to the nitty gritty and be as explicit as possible. In other words, we need to be explicit about being explicit and leverage specific strategies to comfortably move forward for the benefit of our students.

With these thoughts in mind, I’ve been obsessing over inquiry’s common denominators – the strategies or drivers we should always consider when implementing an inquiry-based lesson.

That being said, here are the six drivers of inquiry-based learning. And, while I don’t think every lesson or activity must have all six, I do believe that once we (and our students) become comfortable with an inquiry approach, all drivers will naturally find a way into learning experiences on a regular, if not daily, basis.

El aprendizaje basado en la indagación (inquiry-based learning) se puede definir como aprendizaje que comienza planteando preguntas, problemas o escenarios, en lugar de simplemente presentar hechos establecidos o describir un camino liso, sin obstáculos aparentes, hacia el conocimiento. En resumen, descubrimos material, en contraposición a la cobertura de contenido y a la memorización y regurgitación de hechos y conocimiento.

Why Self-Directed Learning Practices Make Us Better Learners

Why Self-Directed Learning Practices Make Us Better Learners | Educating in the Arts | Scoop.it
When you’re finished with school, do you stop learning things after you graduate? Of course not, and why should you? In a basic sense then, self-directed learning could be called the conscious, willing, and continuous growth of intelligence. It’s about taking ownership of learning, and that’s exactly what we want our students to do.

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture

How To Weave Growth Mindset Into School Culture | Educating in the Arts | Scoop.it
Students also talk about the definitions of fixed and growth mindsets and then talk through various challenges from each perspective. When the school year starts, those lessons continue in the classroom. Every teacher in the Health and Medicine Academy has read Carol Dweck’s book, “Mindset,” and has discussed how to implement it in their classrooms. The school has moved to standards-based grading to emphasize that mistakes are part of learning and that understanding will come.

Last year, we took a shot at understanding how twitter could be used across a range of “cognitive actions,” which yielded the “twitter spectrum.”

 

langwitches.org has done something similar–albeit a bit broader in nature. In the graphic below, they start with the idea of why a teacher should tweet with students (literacy, citizenship, etc.), then moves on to the idea of a “twitter routine” which helpfully offers some ideas for introducing younger students to twitter.
