I love it when the "oldies but goodies" resurface.


"Deeper learning" is when students are able to transfer knowledge and experience from one thing to another, when they are able to make connections.


While teachers can implement strategies to encourage deeper learning, I suspect deeper learning really occurs when teachers provide opportunities for students to make connections in unexpected, whimsical, and yes, innovative ways. Yea, folks, that could be #geniushour.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, August 1, 2014 5:53 PM

Deep learning and, for that matter, deep teaching is about understanding the learner and teacher as being embedded in community relationships with each other and the learning which happens. We bring autobiographies into the classroom, personal curricula if you will, and these filter the teaching and learning. Teaching and learning can never be the same for each person and in each moment, but it is based on authentic relationships arrived at in context.

Writing Multiple Choice Questions For Higher Order Thinking: Instructional Design and eLearning

Writing Multiple Choice Questions For Higher Order Thinking: Instructional Design and eLearning | Just Plain Pure Learning | Scoop.it

By Connie Malamed

 

"Higher order thinking goes beyond memorizing and recalling facts and data. It even goes beyond comprehension. Higher-order thinking refers to cognitive processes that involve analytical, critical or creative thinking....

 

"Because test items must be aligned with learning objectives, you’ll need to include higher-order thinking skills from the start. And yes, these may be better measured through open ended questions, essays and discussions. But if you find yourself needing to use multiple choice tests as a necessity, you can make the best of this situation with these three approaches."

Another good blog article by Erik Francis of Maverik Education LLC, based in Phoenix.  H.O.T. is essentially Bloom's Taxonomy, so this page provides some useful strategies for employing Cognitive Rigor in the classroom.

Things to consider as we contemplate the turbulent times for and in education. There are so many options and possibilities. A challenge is to be sufficiently focused without being myopic to make a decision but sufficiently open-minded to make adaptations. In both cases, to know why the decision and the adaptation(s) are being made and the hoped-for outcomes.
