Blended learning and the flipped classroom

Blended learning and the flipped classroom | Education | Scoop.it

What exactly do these terms mean? How much online content is the right amount? What sorts of sites and apps should we be using? How can we convincingly recommend new technologies to students who are more technologically savvy than we are? Do we need a radical rethink of the way we present information to learners?

'Active' Student Engagement Goes Beyond Class Behavior, Study Finds | Education Week

'Active' Student Engagement Goes Beyond Class Behavior, Study Finds | Education Week | Education | Scoop.it

Summary by Public Education NewsBlast

 

"A new study in the journal Learning and Instruction examines how subtle facets of student engagement are critical for long-term academic success, reports Sarah Sparks in Education Week. Researchers tracked 1,000 mostly minority students from 23 public middle schools in a suburb of Washington, D.C. At the beginning of 7th grade and the end of 8th grade, researchers interviewed students about emotional support from administrators, teachers, and other students; ability to choose projects and teammates for class assignments; and whether they considered class material relevant to their lives. Separately, researchers assessed students on behavioral engagement, including how often the student completed homework on time, followed school rules, and responded in class discussions; emotional engagement, including whether the student felt interested in class subjects and accepted in the school culture; and cognitive engagement, including how well the student managed and monitored his or her own learning. Researchers found that what improves student behavior only sometimes engages them emotionally and cognitively. Students who said teachers set clear expectations and responded consistently were more likely to participate in class and feel connected. Teacher emotional support didn't directly affect student cognitive engagement -- rather, students were more likely to take ownership of learning when studies were personally interesting. Similarly, control over schoolwork did not improve student motivation or enhance feelings of competency unless choices were aligned with personal interests. "

How To Flip An Entire School

How To Flip An Entire School | Education | Scoop.it

"I’m the Principal at Clintondale High School – a financially disadvantaged high school located outside of Detroit. Our school has been in debt for the past decade, and during the recession our area suffered immensely. 74 percent of our 570 students qualify for the free or reduced lunch program, 38 percent receive special education services and 70 percent are a racial minority. Like many schools around the country, our students were not doing well in class, and many were failing – two years ago our failure rate was 61 percent. We decided that a change had to be made in order to put our students in a position to succeed in high school and beyond."

"I still remember how reluctant we were to embrace Google Plus. Google did all its best to push it forward and "force"  us to use it. Many people did not see in it any good addition to the already teeming world of social media. However, as days passed by, the importance and centrality of this social networking site grew bigger and bigger till it finally secured its place among the top social media sites in the calibre of Facebook and Twitter."

Storytelling still retains its importance as an important element of learning. Students learn best when they are given the chance to compose. read, listen and create. Writing stories and sharing them with others is a great way for students to put their literacy skills in to practice. Below is a selection of  good iPad apps selected to try with  students.

Now that the Common Core State Standards require students to make claims and support them with evidence, my students have to learn how to ask and answer more complex questions. This is challenging for both students and teachers.

This blog address the key to the 2-part Evidence Centered method of designing selected response assessment questions. Part I: what the answer to the question; Part II: how did you know. Readers, responsible thinkers must always be asking how and why. "Why do I think this way?" "Why is the message packaged that way?" "What impact does packaging and structure have on my thinking?" What impact does packaging and structure have on the message?"

 

These view is not new: Socrates used it. Modern society just moved away from their past.
