Media&Multiculturalism_Fall 2017's curator insight, November 4, 12:01 PM
While I agree with this article that video can be useful in classroom teaching, I don't think that technology should be as integrated into homework as this article suggests. By sending kids home with homework of making videos, the learning gap can become bigger between those who are privileged and those who are not. How long is it before technology gets so integrated into school work that kids are required to have things like iPads, computers, video cameras, etc.? Many kids going to school can afford paper and pencils and that's about it. Even if we suppose that the school creates a resource where kids can borrow cameras for assignments. That's all well and good but so many factors can still diminish that resource, like all the cameras being borrowed, so one student has to wait to do their project until a camera is finally returned by a fellow borrower. Also, we all see how fast technology changes, what happens when the tech in school that is open for borrowing by students ages out? The kids that can only afford to borrow are left with slower, out of date, and sub par technology compared to the kids who can afford to keep up with the changing times. I personally believe that assignments outside of school should stay old fashioned with paper and pencil, so that the playing field for all students is even that much more level.

Man Who Saved the World From Nuclear Armageddon in 1983 Dies at 77

Man Who Saved the World From Nuclear Armageddon in 1983 Dies at 77 | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
On September 26, 1983, Soviet military officer Stanislav Petrov received a message that five nuclear missiles had been launched by the United States and were heading to Moscow. He didn’t launch a retaliatory strike, believing correctly that it was a false alarm. And with that, he saved the world from nuclear war. But now reports have surfaced that Petrov died this past May. He was 77 years old.

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

The 6 Drivers of Inquiry-Based Learning - Cooper on Curriculum | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | 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.

Education Technology and the Twenty-First-Century Skills Gap

Education Technology and the Twenty-First-Century Skills Gap | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
All too often in many countries, students do not get the education they must have to prosper in the twenty-first century, and countries are not finding adequate numbers of the skilled workers they need to compete. But innovative education technologies are beginning to show potential in helping close the twenty-first-century skill gap.

Dani Rivera's curator insight, November 9, 9:41 AM
Beginning with the teaching experience can be really difficult, since you expect to combine different new elements to the regular class, be innovative but being objective at the same time. That is why blended learning can be such effective teaching method. Since it implies the use of media, but assesed by the facilitator, it was also found in the study that it helps students to raise their critical thinking and higher skills.

Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection

Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it
Educators have long recognized the importance and applicability of critical reflection across a wide range of educational settings, yet in practice it remains a challenging and nebulous concept for many to firmly grasp. In education, the concept of reflection dates back to the work of John Dewey (1933), who defined it as “active, persistent and careful consideration of any belief or supposed form of knowledge in the light of the grounds that support it and the further conclusion to which it tends” (p. 9). Dewey was the first to point out that experience alone does not constitute learning; instead, a conscious realization must occur for the experience to become a source of learning.

In examining the depth of reflection, Rogers (2001) made an influential and careful study and synthesis, while Peltier, Hay, and Drago (2005) put forward a way to evaluate different levels of reflective thinking, which include habitual actions, understanding, reflection, and critical reflection (refer to Weimer, 2012). Yet the void of ecologically valid classroom-based research on incorporating reflection to improve student learning has left teachers largely on their own when it comes to creating opportunities for reflection in their courses.
