Video: Student-centered learning in action - WOW Factor!

Video:  Student-centered learning in action - WOW Factor! | SpeakEnglish | Scoop.it

Massabesic Middle School, Waterboro

"For so many years, students would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will assess each other."

 

Ms. Downing-Ford:

 

So when a student walks into my classroom, I think what their struck with is that I'm not the one that's talking the most in the classroom. There's a lot of voice and choice in the classroom.

 

For so many years, they would receive grades and not know where they came from, what assignments led up to them, how they would be assessed. Now they're involved in not only creating the units and deciding how they will assess themselves, but also how they will self-assess their work and assess each other.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, December 20, 2012 11:35 AM

At Massabesic Middle School, learners are unpacking the standards and are given "voice and choice" in how they learn and how they will express what they know and understand.  This is an excellent example of what student-centered learning is and how teachers and learners roles change. Above all, the ownership to learning takes place where the learners are driving their own learning.

 

A thank you to the Maine DOE and Ms. Downing-Ford in sharing this video and illustrating the power behind student-centered learning!

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, December 21, 2012 12:39 PM

Worth a watch. I'm struck with the fact that these students are using education jargon, like: "unpacking the standards." Not sure how I feel about that.
