Socratic Seminar itself directly addresses 3 of the 4 categories: Problem Solving & Critical Thinking, Collaboration & Communication, and Creativity & Innovation. Add on a research component before or after a seminar and all four of these 21st Century skill categories are effectively addressed in a succinct way.

Those 12 questions could make a fantastic emergent curriculum! The students could map out their own learning through various projects. Imagine spending the month of September just exploring the question: What do I know? and all of the other cluster questions: What is knowing? How do I know something? What levels of reliability are there? And so on!

The great thing about #socraticseminar is that even when students are at varying grade levels in terms of reading comprehension, they can all bring their experiences to the table. With experienced facilitators and effective strategies, all students can participate.

Old National Bank Donates 700 Computers Increasing Digital Inclusion and Engaging Students in STEM and Service Learning | NetLiteracy.org | 21st Century Learning Coach & Interactive Web Designer | Scoop.it

In keeping with Old National Bank’s ongoing commitment to community and sustainability, the company has donated 700 computers and laptops along with printers and other electronic equipment in 2014 to Net Literacy, an Indianapolis-based, student-founded digital inclusion nonprofit.

 

“When Old National Bank IT Asset Manager Dan Nord contacts us to tell us that ONB had additional computers for us, we were all incredibly excited! Their donation of computers will increase access to technology and broadband to thousands of Hoosiers and will also help our own student volunteers,” said Dan Kent, Founder of Net Literacy. “All donated computers are refurbished by middle and high school volunteers and during our repurposing initiative; students learn leadership, job, and STEM skills as they serve their communities. The computer and software skills that they learn enable them to become more tech-savvy,

entrepreneurial, and employable. And we have Old National Bank to thank for helping to make a difference for so many of our volunteers!”

 

“This donation is a win for Indiana communities because of Net Literacy’s ability to repurpose this equipment for use by schools and nonprofits,” said Bob Jones, Old National president & CEO. “It also signals progress for Old National in our efforts to create a more sustainable work environment with less energy and paper usage.”

Productive Failure occurs in many constructivist environments where students are responsible for assembling their own learning. In Socratic Seminar, students use productive failure in order to test out ideas until they finally settle on the opinion that makes the most sense to them. The key is to make sure that the students are in a safe enough environment where they can actually have Productive Failure rather than just failure.
