Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, August 8, 2017 6:09 PM
This is an excellent thought provoking article. I have always used assessment as a teacher feedback tool. For the student, it included a rubric with the criteria required by the educational institution's  "curriculum" for accreditation. I prefer competency benchmarks, capstone projects and project/ problem based learning because of the no "barriers" in learning process.
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, August 8, 2017 7:56 PM
Undertanding is not the same as knowing. The latter can be rote learning and memorization.The former is appropriating what is to be learned and describing it a new way.

An insightful article that gives tried and tested ideas on how to blend the physical visual art with digital creations. The projects set to the students goes beyond the standard curriculum. These tasks not only take the creation of the physical art and combine them with digital media but furthers student creation with collaboration and shared multimedia. Making it a perfect example of the SAMR model redefinition level and Bloom's Taxonomy.

Teachers are trying to get students to slow down and take note of how and why they are thinking and to see thinking as an action they are taking. But two other core components of metacognition often get left out of these discussions — monitoring thinking and directing thinking.

30 Universal Strategies For Learning - TeachThought

30 Universal Strategies For Learning - TeachThought | Insights and Tools 4 Teaching, Issue 3 (09.13) | Scoop.it
As teachers, we’re all trying to better understand how people learn–not now they’re taught in terms of teaching strategies, but more so learning strategies–only not really strategies. Learning actions, or cognitive actions. Strategies for learning.

Self-directed and social learning will undoubtedly be at the core of any sort of future learning–both near and far future. But to improve learning in both self-directed and teacher-centered learning environments, it can be illuminating to look past the activities, projects, and courses to try to see what sort of brain-level actions learners are performing. Like push-ups, wind sprints, and weight training are physical actions that help train an athlete’s body, what kind of cognitive actions train a learner’s mind?

The Chorus to Remember

Music can make a huge difference in your workday. Feel free to crank up the volume if noise has you working like a snail, you've got a case of the Monday's, or you've got something mundane or familiar to do. Ideally, though, make your playlists out of songs you already know, and if your tasks involve any sort of linguistic processing, focus on lyric-free options. Lastly, if you have something to learn, pump up your mood with music before you get started.

Classical or instrumental music enhances mental performance more than music with lyrics. Music can make rote or routine tasks (think folding laundry or filing papers) less boring and more enjoyable. Runners who listen to music go faster. But when you need to give learning and remembering your full attention, silence is golden

Why Understanding These Four Types of Mistakes Can Help Us Learn

Why Understanding These Four Types of Mistakes Can Help Us Learn | Insights and Tools 4 Teaching, Issue 3 (09.13) | Scoop.it
Here are two quotes about mistakes that I like and use, but that can also lead to confusion if we don’t further clarify what we mean:

“A life spent making mistakes is not only most honorable but more useful than a life spent doing nothing” – George Bernard Shaw

“It is well to cultivate a friendly feeling towards error, to treat it as a companion inseparable from our lives, as something having a purpose which it truly has.” – Maria Montessori

These constructive quotes communicate that mistakes are desirable, which is a positive message and part of what we want students to learn. An appreciation of mistakes helps us overcome our fear of making them, enabling us to take risks. But we also want students to understand what kinds of mistakes are most useful and how to most learn from them.
