You Have To Create Understanding By Design!

 

Understanding, however, involves something beyond mere acquisition for later straightforward use. To understand, students must do something with, adapt, and sometimes question what they (think they) know.

They have to think and rethink.

 

They must be required to draw inferences and come to realizations, try performing with that understanding, and draw further inferences from what works, what doesn’t, when, and why. The student doesn’t have to merely “know” F=ma or that the Federalists predicted the health-care debate, they have to “realize” the point of the knowledge, its power, and its limits in order to transfer it flexibly and fluently in the future.

 

Thus, to achieve understanding as an educator, you have to help students “by design” come to realizations that they own and appreciate as insightful. If you don’t, if you just “teach” the understandings you aim to have them possess, you will fail – no matter how “good” the teaching. Indeed, this is the key to grasping the meaning of research on student misconception: misunderstandings persist in the face of pedagogy that doesn’t elicit and challenge student meanings and their meaning-making process. Teachers thus need to be crystal-clear in their own mind which of their goals involve knowledge and which involve understanding and treat each goal accordingly.

Understanding suggests mis-understanding and multiple ways of understanding. That is lost in many classrooms. Is there one way of knowing or one knowledge in multicultural world?

Bee-Bot | Coding | School Libraries | Scoop.it

Bee-Bot is an exciting new robot designed for use by young children. This colorful, easy-to-operate, and friendly little robot is a perfect tool for teaching sequencing, estimation, problem-solving, and just having fun!

Sturdy construction and colorful design entice children to put Bee-Bot through its paces. Directional keys are used to enter up to 40 commands which send Bee-Bot forward, back, left, and right. Pressing the green GO button starts Bee-Bot on its way. Bee-Bot blinks and beeps at the conclusion of each command to allow children to follow Bee-Bot through the program they have entered and then confirms its completion with lights and sound. Children want to use Bee-Bot over and over and are inspired to enter ever more creative and complex command sequences.

Bee-Bot moves in 6” steps and 90º turns. Compact size and durable materials make Bee-Bot child- and classroom-friendly. Bee-Bot is equally adaptable to home and school environments and boosts enthusiasm for experimentation and learning wherever it is used. Bee-Bot is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery. Recharging is done via a standard USB recharger or USB computer port. A USB recharger cable comes with each Bee-Bot.

The 18 Biggest Education Myths

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's curator insight, September 25, 2013 12:06 PM

Some of my favorites: More homework = more learning, achievement in public schools is down, teachers are working less & getting paid more, etc. While there isn't anything in there that specifically points to librarians and school libraries, I think we can make a case for ourselves under the "teacher-proof" initiatives and the myth about content knowledge. This is a good one to keep in your back pocket next time someone near you starts spouting the popular theory that public schools are worthless...

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 25, 2013 12:21 PM

What is interesting about many of these myths is my experience tells me that we, as educators, help perpetuate them. You only have to ask administrators what the problem is: teachers. And ask teachers and it is administrators.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, September 26, 2013 8:14 AM
Ivon: so true. And if you ask teachers and administrators while they're in the same room together and I think the answer would be parents or politicians. The point is we need to look at this list and truly examine ourselves. As @coolcatteacher said recently (I'm paraphrasing): WE ARE THE MEDIA so it's time WE took control of that spin and change these perceptions.

Some simple but great ideas. Many modern classrooms have lots of fun using technology, and that is important, but - if this is at the expense of academic rigour - you are probably not expecting enough from your students.
