Ethical understanding - Learning continuum - The Australian Curriculum v8.0

Ethical understanding - Learning continuum - The Australian Curriculum v8.0 | Global Citizenship | Scoop.it

The Ethical understanding learning continuum is organised into three interrelated organising elements:

Understanding ethical concepts and issuesReasoning in decision making and actionsExploring values, rights and responsibilities
Maree Whiteley's insight:

What does it mean to be a 'Global Citizen'? Technologies bring local and distant communities into classrooms, exposing students to knowledge and global concerns as never before. Complex issues require responses that take account of ethical considerations such as human rights and responsibilities, animal rights, environmental issues and global justice.

The 15-Minute Media Literacy Lesson

The 15-Minute Media Literacy Lesson | Global Citizenship | Scoop.it
Frank W. Baker, author of Close Reading the Media, shares ideas for 15-minute visual and media literacy lessons using familiar magazines for kids and adults.
Maree Whiteley's insight:
Student friendly magazines provide a short media literacy lesson. Asking your students to conduct a “close read” of a magazine cover is another way to teach informational texts and to get them thinking beyond the superficial. In our increasingly visual world, students should be challenged to analyze and deconstruct magazines they see at school and at home.

Maree Whiteley's insight:
Sounds very promising...This implementation matrix was created as an educational guide to realise a vision of personalized, twenty first century learning where all students are successful. What is really helpful, is to see this view of Personaised Learning set out as a matrix (or rubric) to enable educators to see at a glance, what it IS and what it IS NOT!

Globalization, for us art educators, does not merely consist of how artistic themes are altered, changed, and improved upon through globalization. Globalization is composed of many institutions and ideologies that we can use in our art education practice.

Project-based learning: essential questions and authentic tasks

Project-based learning: essential questions and authentic tasks | Global Citizenship | Scoop.it
The essential question drives a project and describes what you want students to think about, explore, and formulate an answer to at the end of the project. The authentic task is the work that students will do complete to help them better understand and respond to the question.
The essential question drives the “Why are we learning this?” and the authentic task drives the “What are we doing?”

Authentic tasks, real-world problems and issues = Project-Based Learning, engaged students and visible learning.

 I think these samples can be used as inspiration for your own projects. And, critiquing these samples can help students think of ways to make their own productions better.What I look for in projects:The project answers a driving question.The production is made by students or documents students’ learning.The production is made for an audience.The project is open-ended, so each end production is different.The product is hosted publicly online.Read more about project based learning.

Maree Whiteley's insight:
Yes...I’m always on the lookout for products created by students through project based learning experiences. I'd rather see what students create to express their answer to a driving question than just read a summary of the project.
