David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Education | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Self-Directed Learning Through A Culture Of “Can”

The long-term output of any school should be not just proficient students, but enabled learners. An “enabled” learner can grasp macro views, uncover micro details, ask questions, plan for new knowledge and transfer thinking across divergent circumstances. This doesn’t happen by content “knowledge holding,” or even by the fire of enthusiasm, but by setting a tone for learning that suggests possibility, and by creating a culture of can.

First, it’s important to realize that a “culture” is comprised of tangible factors (students) and intangible factors (curiosity). It is also ever-present — it exists whether or not we as educators acknowledge it. It precedes formal learning and will last long after that formal learning experience has passed.
