Personalized Data Units or Personal Learning?

Personalized Data Units or Personal Learning? | Teaching and Education Pedagogy | Scoop.it
The semantics of school reform are sometimes deceptive. This is apparent when educators talk about “personalized learning”. Personalized Learning is an attractive proposition that is, in an increasingly number of instances, ironically characterized by an absence of the “personal”. Many of the emerging “canned” approaches to Personalized Learning are predicated upon false assumptions about student engagement and motivation. Thomas Armstrong, writing for the American Institute For Learning and Human Development, articulates this concern in succinct terms:“I’m taken aback by some of the highly packaged ‘’personalized’’ learning systems now being developed …. These edtech products often give the appearance of offering personalization, but in reality, they more often rate and process a student’s learning needs, wishes, strengths, and aspirations through impersonal algorithms, then generate a profile of the student that includes content ‘’deliverables’’…. Sounds kind of de-personalizing, doesn’t it?”

What are 'thinking skills' and can we teach them?

What are 'thinking skills' and can we teach them? | Teaching and Education Pedagogy | Scoop.it
It’s tempting to believe that if we teach children how to think, then they’ll think better. After all, when we teach children to read, then they read better and when we teach them to juggle then they get better at juggling. Why should thinking be any different?

Well, first we have to identify what we mean by thinking. In What Every Teacher Needs To Know About Psychology we say this:

This article is different from the one previously scooped because of two prevalent reasons. One of these being it is written by a doctor in education and the other being what ideas are being presented. The doctor first begins by defining what 'thinking' is and then using these definitions he goes on to list the actions that come about when 'thinking'. These include: organizing information, linking ideas together, analyzing, deciding, and so on. The author then explains how these things are carried out based on the knowledge one has and we unconsciously do much of it without realizing it. So, in contrast to the previous article the author in this article discusses what thinking skills we already have and  can improve upon, while the other article addresses the lack of skill when thinking, learning, and acting upon uncertainty.

How to undo your classroom management mistakes | Teaching and Education Pedagogy | Scoop.it
I’ll tell you my personal philosophy on this. It’s NEVER too late to change something that’s not working. Not in your classroom, and not in your life.

You don’t have to wait for next year and an entirely new group of kids. You can–and should–modify your procedures, expectations, and teaching strategies ANY time they are not effective, at ANY time during the school year.

"We’ve all heard that we shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, but the truth is that good looks inspire not only more attention, but more trust. This is not only true of people we meet, but the visual content we perceive around us.

"To give you an idea of how much design matters when it comes to that important pitch, we selected some less-than-attractive slides from real presentations and redesigned them as examples of what you should and shouldn’t do."

Antibiotic Resistance Will Kill 300 Million People by 2050

Antibiotic Resistance Will Kill 300 Million People by 2050 | Teaching and Education Pedagogy | Scoop.it
The true cost of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) will be 300 million premature deaths and up to $100 trillion (£64 trillion) lost to the global economy by 2050. This scenario is set out in a new report which looks to a future where drug resistance is not tackled between now and 2050.

The report predicts that the world’s GDP would be 0.5% smaller by 2020 and 1.4% smaller by 2030 with over 100 million premature deaths. The Review on Antimicrobial Resistance, chaired by Jim O’Neill, is significant in that it is a global review that seeks to quantify financial costs.

This issue goes beyond health policy and, on a strictly macroeconomic basis, it makes sense for governments to act now, the report argues. "One of the things that has been lacking is putting some pound signs in front of this problem," says Michael Head at the Farr institute, University College London, UK, who sees hope in how a response to HIV came about. "The world was slow to respond [to HIV], but when the costs were calculated the world leapt into action."

The thinker says research has shown that teaching thinking as a subject at school improves students’ performance in every other subject between 30-100 per cent.

Thanks to the wonders of neuroplasticity, adolescents are primed to improve their performance in school—and beyond. Here’s how to help.

 


Adolescence is an exciting time as teenagers become increasingly independent, begin to look forward to their lives beyond high school, and undergo many physical, emotional, and cognitive changes. In that last category, teenagers can learn to take charge of their developing brains and steer their thinking in positive and productive directions toward future college and career success.

That's great thank you so much for this one. I like the way the visual takes SAMR from a different angle and uses coffee.

Nurturing Growth Mindsets: Six Tips From Carol Dweck

Nurturing Growth Mindsets: Six Tips From Carol Dweck | Teaching and Education Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Stanford researcher Carol Dweck clearly tapped into a powerful and compelling idea when she linked the concept of growth mindsets to academic success.

As fans of Dweck's research can quickly explain, people with fixed mindsets see strengths and skills as inate traits, like eye color. You're either born with them, or you're not. But people with growth mindsets recognize that the brain can grow and change through effort, and they embrace failures as opportunities for developing new strategies and approaches to learning content and concepts they find challenging.

Enthusiasm for Dweck's work has spread rapidly, and her name is a buzzword in many schools as teachers buy into the idea that helping students shift their mindsets can lead to academic gains.

But, in recent years, Dweck has worked to balance that enthusiasm by busting some misconceptions about her research and its applications in schools. That includes a wildly popular Education Week commentary and, on Friday, a keynote address at EdWeek's Leaders to Learn From event in Washington.
