The 6 Questions We Should Be Asking about the Future of Learning

The 6 Questions We Should Be Asking about the Future of Learning | Education and Training | Scoop.it
In the near future, we should support students and young people in experiencing what it’s like to learn in online and in person spaces, managing projects and their own work, much like how they are living their lives.

Given this reality and given our goal of preparing young people for the world we think they may inherit, what learning experiences can and should we as educators design for? What does learning look like in the modern era?

We have set learning styles, rereading is good, focusing on one subject at a time, a first answer is always right, and the myth of 10, 000 hours.

I tried to teach cross-curricular as much as I could, relating what students were learning in one subject with others.

If we repeat the same mistakes for 10, 000 hours, we learn to do what we want to learn wrong.

And yet, learning psychology research and psycholinguistic studies continue to show the superiority of rote memorization over all  other learning paradigms in terms of accuracy, memorability, and reaction time.

Good  tips ... most programs don't "develop" people anymore ... too busy with mindless tasks and forget that learn for learn doesn't work... it takes a  mindful approach to deliver a variety of learning around one topic multiple ways and most important real applications to get learning to stick

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED

25 Practices That Foster Lifelong Learning - InformED | Education and Training | Scoop.it

"Is your capacity for learning is fixed or fluid? Can you improve your intelligence and talents through hard work and practice, or are you stuck with the brains you’ve got? Stanford psychologist Carol Dweck says most of us have either a “fixed” or “growth” mindset when it comes to learning. Most of us can get through sixteen years of schooling regardless of which mindset we have, but when it comes to lifelong learning–learning for the sake of learning, without outside pressure–only a growth mindset will cut it."

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum | Education and Training | Scoop.it
As an administrator, whenever I walk into a teacher’s classroom, one of the first things I almost always subconsciously look for is whether or not the students are engaged in inquiry. However, telling a teacher, “Your students need to engage in more inquiry,” is comparable to letting a comedian know she needs to be funnier or asking a pizzaiolo to make a better dough. And, vague directives in the absence of explicit instruction typically generate anxiety.

To avoid these anxieties, and for progress to actually take place, we need to drill down to the nitty gritty and be as explicit as possible. In other words, we need to be explicit about being explicit and leverage specific strategies to comfortably move forward for the benefit of our students.

With these thoughts in mind, I’ve been obsessing over inquiry’s common denominators – the strategies or drivers we should always consider when implementing an inquiry-based lesson.

That being said, here are the six drivers of inquiry-based learning. And, while I don’t think every lesson or activity must have all six, I do believe that once we (and our students) become comfortable with an inquiry approach, all drivers will naturally find a way into learning experiences on a regular, if not daily, basis.

El aprendizaje basado en la indagación (inquiry-based learning) se puede definir como aprendizaje que comienza planteando preguntas, problemas o escenarios, en lugar de simplemente presentar hechos establecidos o describir un camino liso, sin obstáculos aparentes, hacia el conocimiento. En resumen, descubrimos material, en contraposición a la cobertura de contenido y a la memorización y regurgitación de hechos y conocimiento.

Actually, handwriting does matter, but not in the most direct way, producing. There is evidence that handwriting helps develop the creative side of the brain.

From a phenomenological perspective, writing also produces text to be re-interpreted continuously over time. Certainly, digital tools can do the same, but is it the same?

A Simple Guide to Design Learning - STEM JOBS | Education and Training | Scoop.it
Doris Wells-Papanek of www.designlearning.us published an article in “Innovation Journal” in which she said “Design is to doing as learning is to thinking.” Learning, Wells-Papnek explains, prepares students to think, and design enables them to do. The goal of design learning is to help students become great problem solvers as they progress through the steps of the design learning framework, challenged to be creative but mindful of the task put before them.

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize | Education and Training | Scoop.it

I have a fundamental belief about the kind of people I try to employ. And that's that they're going to be harder on themselves than I'll ever need to be. I also believe that the concept of constructive criticism is overrated, if not an outright fallacy. Your employees are either aware of problems with their performance, or they're not.

 

The best way to find out which category they're in is through asking questions and listening. Let's look at some of the reasons this passive approach to problem-solving is good for both of you.

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom

16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits of Mind In The Classroom | Education and Training | Scoop.it

"In outcomes-based learning environments, we generally see three elements in play: 1) learning objectives or targets are created from given standards; 2) instruction of some kind is given; and then 3) learning results are assessed. These assessments offer data to inform the revision of further planned instruction. Rinse and repeat.

But lost in this clinical sequence are the Habits of Mind that (often predictably) lead to success or failure in the mastery of given standards. In fact, it is not in the standards or assessments, but rather these personal habits where success or failure — in academic terms — actually begin."
