Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection

Three Ideas for Implementing Learner Reflection | On education | 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.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, November 1, 8:13 AM
En marketing, a great image is often a key component of the message. Constant need for pictures can dig deep into your pocket when using stock photography. If you want a particular image, then it makes sense to pay for the stock images as it will be a lot cheaper than to hire a photographer. What to do when you need images all the time, but their marketing lifespan can be measured only in days, maybe hours? Images for Facebook posts, email newsletters, individual slides in presentations that you use only once… Paying 10 or 20 dollars per image for these adds up. So where do you get free images? I have collected a bunch of sites that give you exactly that… free images for commercial use.

Survey: Teachers' mental health declining amid job stress

Survey: Teachers' mental health declining amid job stress | On education | Scoop.it
A long list of anxieties — around school budget cuts, bullying, coarse political discourse and the shaky status of immigrant students — is taking a toll on teachers, a new survey shows, with more educators now saying their mental health is suffering than just two years earlier.

More than half of the educators point out their mental health is an issue: 58% said their mental health was “not good” for seven or more of the previous 30 days. A similar survey in 2015 found just 34% of respondents felt the same.

The findings are being released Monday by the American Federation of Teachers  and the Badass Teachers Association,   a national grass-roots organization focused on social justice.

Randi Weingarten, president of the teachers' federation, said that over the past few years, teachers have actually swapped one kind of stress — an intense national focus on standardized skills tests — for another.

After President Obama signed the Every Student Succeeds Act in 2015, Weingarten said, many observers believed that educator stress would ease. "You would have expected the numbers to go down, not up,” she said.


But stress over the coarseness of our political debate, she said, has become a big dilemma for schools, she said. 

“This notion that being coarse and tough and enabling hate is OK is highly, highly, highly disruptive and problematic in schools and goes completely against what parents and teachers know is absolutely important for kids, which is a safe and welcoming environment,” Weingarten said in an interview. 

The survey of nearly 5,000 educators, most of them responding online, found that the vast majority — 86% — did not feel respected by Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, who has made expanding private- and charter-school choice a centerpiece of her career.

Weingarten said the negative findings on DeVos, a Michigan billionaire and Republican mega-donor who has championed school choice, are telling. 

"People get what she’s doing — and she’s doing the same thing nationally as she tried to do in Michigan ... which is to completely disrupt public schooling, find ways to undermine it, defund it, destabilize it, at the same time actively promoting private alternatives, even though the private alternatives don’t have a good track record," she said.

Weingarten also criticized DeVos for not stepping in more forcefully, as past administrations have done, to help educators after recent natural and man-made disasters.

“That has never happened with this administration: Not after Charlottesville, not after the hurricanes, not after the fires, not after Las Vegas. It has never happened (with DeVos). Instead, she spends the time sitting with (Republican pollster) Frank Luntz trying to figure out how to sell vouchers.”

The Education Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the findings, which relied on a random sample of 830 members the teachers' federation as well as educators in two New York school districts. More than 4,000 other educators responded to a public version of the survey online. 

The findings show that 61% of educators, as well as school staff, say their work “always” or “often” stressful. 

They also don't appear to get much sleep: Only one in five (18%) get eight or more hours of sleep per night. The vast majority (78%) manage five to seven hours a night.

The new survey follows an unrelated one from UCLA last week that found 51.4% of teachers reported more students experiencing “high levels of stress and anxiety” than in previous years.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, November 9, 12:08 AM
Many examinations and activities place emphasis on skills like remembering and understanding. Unfortunately, this leaves little room for incorporating the Bloom’s taxonomic levels of higher order thinking like analysis, evaluation, and creativity. We know from research that teaching our students higher-order thinking skills is one of the most beneficial steps we can take. After all, these are the skills they truly need to succeed beyond school, after all. But do our examinations and activities reflect this need? To help you find out, educator Andrew Churches has devised two very useful Bloom’s analysis tools that are available on his website Edorigami. These two tools specifically analyze the Bloom’s taxonomic levels of activities and assessments. Moreover, they investigate the balance between higher-order thinking skills (HOTS) and lower-order thinking skills (LOTS). In doing so, they help you improve the taxonomic focus of your exams and activities or units. Download each tool by clicking on the image or the link below it.

Teachers: your guide to learning strategies that really work

Teachers: your guide to learning strategies that really work | On education | Scoop.it

"Research on effective learning reveals that an awful lot of what goes on in the classroom simply doesn’t matter. There are many pointless activities that take up valuable time in the name of engagement, merely demonstrating progress as opposed to actually making progress. Often, these approaches not only have limited impact on student learning but can have a hugely detrimental impact on teacher workload and wellbeing.

There is significant evidence to suggest that teachers should prune back what they do and focus on a more streamlined approach in the classroom. So it’s less about spending hours cutting things up and putting them in envelopes, and more about creating conditions in which students can gain long-lasting knowledge that can be applied in a range of situations. The following six principles are a distillation of key research on what really matters in the classroom."

@Tera S. Ellis You're right- it is possible that they could become a behavior problem. That makes me think of a child in my classroom- he hasn't been identified in our TAG program; however, I will be recommending him for next year. He tends to distract others and interrupt the learning of others quite possibly because he is completed and not being challenged enough.
Cheryl Turner's comment, November 16, 11:13 PM
Ashley and Tera , thanks for your comments but you are misunderstanding the definition of cognitive load. It doesn't have any thing to do with gifted learners not being stimulated. It has to do with the amount of information any person can handle focusing on at any one time. For instance, if you are trying to do a difficult math problem while listening to a challenging jazz riff or perhaps watch a movie at the same time, the cognitive load of those tasks in combination is going to be excessive. in that situation, you would not be effective at the math problem, because you have increased the cognitive load of the task. You have not increased the difficulty level of the task, in terms of its abstractness or the level of challenge for the mind trying to figure it out, but you have made the conditions less than optimal for that mind to operate on that task.

The objective is that good teachers create an environment where each student's learning can emerge. I don't think that means they don't teach. Gert Biesta uses John Dewey in his writing argues that teaching is relational. Having a strong grasp of content, being able to deliver it, caring for one's students, etc. each go into creating the environment where learning can emerge.

Improving teacher's efficiency 
Margaret Annen's curator insight, October 22, 5:03 PM
"Great Teachers Don't Teach" really sums it up with the idea that real teaching doesn't take place until the student does on their own.  This article relates to my project because I believe one way teachers can learn how to let go is for them to be in the same situation as they need to let their students be and that is be left to do.  The only issue perhaps is educators may go through and experience doing, but giving up the control is hard because day in and day out you have been doing the doing. I believe learning how to let go must be accomplished by learning how to let go.  Educators must plan a lesson and say include one or two steps of letting go.  Then they must build on it, so that day after day they themselves feel comfortable with letting go.  Managing a classroom of students who must do specific things on their own looks and feels different because the students are engaged to the point that they do not want to be interrupted rather they are feverishly and committed to learning.
