Low Tech Lessons to Make Your Class Ready for the High Tech World

Low Tech Lessons to Make Your Class Ready for the High Tech World | Curriculum connections | Scoop.it
By Brian Cleary Instructional Coach- Hearthwood Elementary Evergreen School District   Underneath the flash and dazzle flowing into classrooms on the currents that feeds 21st-century technology is a newly important skill.  A singular skill made more important in the digital age but developed independently from the devices and digital tools that define it.  Fake news, media hyperbole, and the seeming end of simple answers have all contributed to the increased importance of all of us to ask better questions. Questioning is perhaps the single most important skill we can teach our students.  It crosses all curriculum, it plays directly into …

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions | Curriculum connections | Scoop.it
Having essential questions drive curriculum and learning has become core to many educators' instructional practices.  Grant Wiggins, in his work on Understanding By Design, describes an essential question as: A meaning of "essential" involves important questions that recur throughout one’s life. Such questions are broad in scope and timeless by nature. They are perpetually arguable…

7 Ways #Reflection Gives #Students #Ownership of their Learning

7 Ways #Reflection Gives #Students #Ownership of their Learning | Curriculum connections | Scoop.it
It wasn’t until I actively started to reflect, both by myself in writing each and every day, and also with my wife at the end of the day, that I could open up my world to new possibilities. Reflecting helped me recognize where I was currently at (in my job, in blogging, in being a dad and husband) versus where I wanted to be.

If we don’t reflect, we tend to go through the motions, not conscious of what steps we can take to get better or move forward.

The same goes for students. When students are allowed, given time, supported, and praised for their reflection, something changes. They begin to own their experience, instead of being forced into a series of choices they aren’t sure about.

Check out this new version of the KWL chart by Silvia Rosenthal Tomlison. What we once called KWL is now the KWHLAQ.

* K stands for  'What do you KNOW?'

* W stands for 'What do you WANT to know?'

* H stands for 'HOW will you find out?'

* L stands for 'What have your LEARNED?'

* A stands for 'What ACTION will you take?'

* Q stands for 'What further QUESTIONS do you have?'

This new visual also includes suggestions under each category to help students make their "thinking and learning visible." For more information click through to the post.
