PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner"

PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner" | On education | Scoop.it

We agree with George Couros and Will Richardson that 2013 will be the "Year of the Learner." We are seeing a big culture shift around the world to personalize learning for all learners. When learners are given a greater voice in how they learn, they are more motivated and engaged in their learning. When learners have choices in how they prefer to access and engage with content, and then express what they know, they take ownership of their learning. We encourage you to take one action this "Year of the Learner" by encouraging learner voice and choice.

Students Must Be Prepared to Reinvent Themselves :: Christopher Dede | On education | Scoop.it

"...today's curriculum standards, industrial-era teaching practices, and drive-by summative assessments emphasize content acquisition and recipe-like procedural skills. These are exactly the aspects of work machines are taking over. Similarly, today's education system focuses on individual accomplishment; yet, collaboration, communication, and conflict resolution are central skills for a future dominated by complex situations that will require multidisciplinary contributions. As my Harvard colleague John Richards and I discuss in our 2012 book Digital Teaching Platforms, today's industrial-era classrooms too often use one-size-fits-all, presentation-based instruction to prepare students for the past rather than the future. We are modeling how to turn the crank on a player piano when students must learn to improvise in a jazz band."

Ginger Jewell's curator insight, January 15, 7:29 AM
There is a quote that references the fact that schools beautifully prepare students for a world that no longer exists.  I used it as my tag line for many years.  Most of us have read the statistics that cites today's students will change careers multiple times.  This calls for a very different approach to learning, from fact regurgitation to using what you know to create new ideas.  Many charter schools , like Big Picture schools, PBL schools and High Tech High have been attempting to change the paradigm for the last couple of decades, and have done so successfully.  What will it take for us to approach education differently?  As long as one shot tests determine the fate of students, we cannot possibly move forward.  It's been time to change for a very long time.  How do we let go of bureaucracy and free our administrators and teachers to make the classroom exciting and meaningful. As Chris Dede says "We are modeling how to turn the crank on a player piano when students must learn to improvise in a jazz band."  What steps can you take right now?

It is widely accepted that opportunities to work in teams lets students develop better communication, collaboration and organizational skills. Before we started using Scrum, we had not found any surefire method to make projects successful. Now we have a framework that provides more structure and guidance for teachers and students. We are providing the necessary scaffolding so students can learn harmonious teamwork. With this in place, we can embark on classroom projects that let students explore, create and shine.

5 New Year’s Resolutions to Protect Your Technology :: NY Times

5 New Year’s Resolutions to Protect Your Technology :: NY Times | On education | Scoop.it
If 2017 taught you anything about personal technology, it’s that the onus is on you to protect your personal data and devices.

Tech companies aren’t going to do that for you. (In fact, they are generally the ones failing you.) So why not make protecting yourself your New Year’s resolution?

Last year, I recommended some resolutions for making your tech less frustrating, like doing regular maintenance on your devices, being a strategic shopper and purging the e-waste sitting around your home.

But this year’s cybersecurity nightmares, from the ransomware attack to the Equifax hack, underscored the need to protect yourself. Here are some recommendations for living a safer digital life this new year.

11 Comic Creation Web Tools and Apps :: Shelly Sanchez Terrell | On education | Scoop.it
Students enjoy learning with comics and creating them. Comics help students visualize their learning. I’ve gotten students to create comics to illustrate logical fallacies, summarize articles, provide instructions, and express themselves. The frames break up the content into chunks, which helps their brains make sense of the material. Below are my favorite free educational comic creation tools and apps. These tools provide learners with a library of characters, props, scenes, speech bubbles, and templates. Find tips and ideas in my slide presentation, Teaching with Comics.

This Study of 400,000 People Reveals the 1 Reason Employees Work Harder (and It's Not Pay or Benefits or Culture Decks)

This Study of 400,000 People Reveals the 1 Reason Employees Work Harder (and It's Not Pay or Benefits or Culture Decks) | On education | Scoop.it

Forget slogans and posters. Forget mission statements. Forget culture decks. A survey of over 400,000 people across the U.S. found that when employees believe promotions are managed effectively, they are more than two times as likely to give extra effort at work -- and to plan for having a long-term future with their company.

 

But wait, there's more: When employees believe promotions are managed effectively, they are more than five times as likely to believe their leaders act with integrity.

 

The result? At those companies, employee turnover rates are half that of other companies in the same industry. Productivity, innovation, and growth metrics outperform the competition. For public companies, stock returns are almost three times the market average.
