The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | Technology Events | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Can't wait for this release. The features shown in this video make Windows 8 more useable.

Marilyn Armstrong's comment, September 9, 2013 9:13 AM
I sincerely hope this improves the usability of both Win8 and RT because it's pretty bad so far.
Marilyn Armstrong's curator insight, September 9, 2013 9:16 AM

The few people I know who actually bought Windows 8 or RT are not happy campers. I hope this really does make it a real usable system because otherwise, my next computer is not going to be Windows based ... and that's a problem, given that all my software IS Windows based.
