8 interactive activities to increases student engagement in your classroom

8 interactive activities to increases student engagement in your classroom | Peace=Ed Campaigns | Scoop.it

" If you’re mentoring new teachers and observe that their classes lack interacting or engaging activities, here are some suggestions that I have found easy to implement and wildly successful. Many new teachers erroneously believe that elementary, middle school and even high school students learn in the same manner as adults.  They don’t."

Don't miss this key paper on educational assessment! 


There is a growing consensus that college and career readiness depends on not just academic knowledge and skills but on a wide range of social and developmental competencies, as well—such as the ability to monitor one’s own learning, persist at challenging tasks, solve complex problems, set realistic goals, and communicate effectively in many kinds of settings.


This is the first in Students at the Center’s new Deeper Learning Research Series—David T. Conley, well-known for his influential research on college readiness, argues that the time is ripe for a major shift in educational assessment.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, October 20, 2014 2:23 PM

Do you discuss growth mindset with your students? Do you also discuss what a fixed mindset is? In this post Jackie Gerstein provides her insights into these areas, and also talks about the grwoth of what she defines as a "toxic mindset" where a students might think:

  • Mediocre is often good enough for me as long as I get the work done.

We are fortunate that she has also provided a "Personal Accountability and Reflection" series of questions, which is shown in the infographic above, and also listed in the post. Below are two of the questions.

  • Did I work as hard as I could have?
  • Did I regulate my procrastination, distractions, and temptations in order to complete my work?

These are great questions to use with your students. How do you think  your students would answer them? Would they acknowledge how they are working accurately?

Concept Mapping/Graphic Organizers | Peace=Ed Campaigns | Scoop.it

"Reading Rockets shares that "A concept map is a visual organizer that can enrich students' understanding of a new concept. Using a graphic organizer, students think about the concept in several ways. Most concept map organizers engage students in answering questions such as, "What is it? What is it like? What are some examples?" Concept maps deepen understanding and comprehension."Cast reports: "There is solid evidence for the effectiveness of graphic organizers in facilitating learning." A summary of this finding is that, "When looking across 23 different studies they found a consistent effect on comprehension."

Graphic organizers often help students understand new concepts, and they may help students find misunderstanding or areas of weakness (and strength). This post provides:

* 7 ideas on how to use graphic organizers/concept maps in the classroom

* 5 examples of use in the classroom

* The benefits of graphic organizers

* Concept maps and assistive technology

* Multiple intelligences/learning styles supported

* Sources that provide graphic organizers including a list of online, downloadable, iDevices, Chrome extensions and printables

* A list of websites with additional information

Many great resources are available in this post.

How Tests Make Us Smarter

How Tests Make Us Smarter | Peace=Ed Campaigns | Scoop.it
Low-stakes quizzing helps people retain more of what they learn.

 

"When students are tested, they are required to retrieve knowledge from memory. Much educational activity, such as lectures and textbook readings, is aimed at helping students acquire and store knowledge. Various kinds of testing, though, when used appropriately, encourage students to practice the valuable skill of retrieving and using knowledge. The fact of improved retention after a quiz — called the testing effect or the retrieval practice effect — makes the learning stronger and embeds it more securely in memory."

"The problem we have in schools and organizations is that we tend to use those if-then rewards foreverything rather than for the areas in which they work. Trouble is, in both the workforce and education, people now rely less on these routine kinds of skills and more on work that requires greater judgment, creativity, and discernment. In many ways, how we motivate people hasn't caught up to the reality of our times"

Very good look at the homework debate from both sides.  Not a right versus wrong argument, but clearly an interpretation argument.  What should or shouldn't be homeowrk and is it good or bad depends on how the research is interpreted.  Clearly very important as it also illuminate (slightly) the issue with appropriate assessment of understanding.

How do students learn? There are many concepts that look at this question, and the visual above in one way to view this. 

To the left you have a box that shows that students take in content by reading, writing, listening and experiencing, and that to comprehend and interpret content they must have prior knowledge, make observations, identify main and supporting ideas and gather evidence.

In the midle section the student has to take the input and use critical thinking skills. To do this they must also be engaged in and committed to the learning process. 

And the final section looks at their output, how does the student show what they have learned.

In all phases technology may play a role.

This visual would be great to spark discussion amongst faculy.
