The Shift From Content To Purpose: A Continuum of Choice - TeachThought

The Shift From Content To Purpose: A Continuum of Choice - TeachThought | TechTeacher | Scoop.it
What is the difference between a teacher-centered and learner-driven classroom?

We’ve taken a look at examples of student-centered teaching before. It’s both a subtle (in theory) and dramatic (in function) shift in the entire ecology of a classroom, curriculum, and sense of student identity in the process of learning. This idea isn’t new in and of itself. John Dewey espoused many of these same ideas century ago. It’s an idea that continues to pick up steam with proponents of ‘progressive education.’

Sylvia Duckworth–who has created dozens of useful, minimalist sort of sketch notes/illustrations that convey ideas in education–has taken the thinking from Barbara Bray and Kathleen McClaskey  and created a complimentary visual. (In fact, you can go straight to the source and read more from Bray and McClaskey on Choice is More than a Menu of Options.)

What happens when you empower students with choice and purpose? What do the new roles and responsibilities look like? The overview below (from the image above) offers some clarity on what changes. The biggest takeaway might be the change in focus from content delivery to purpose discovery.

Maker education is currently a major trend in education. But just saying that one is doing Maker Education really doesn’t define the teaching practices that an educator is using to facilitate it. Maker education takes on many forms. This post provides an overview of how maker education is being implemented based on the teaching practices as defined by the  Pedagogy, Andragogy, Heutagogy (PAH) continuum.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, December 12, 2017 1:40 PM
The digital adds another not-at-all-discrete meta-level layer. The tools we use for learning, the ones that have become so ubiquitous, each influence what, where, and how we learn—and, even more, how we think about learning. Books. Pixels. Trackpads. Keyboards. E-books. Databases. Digital archives. Learning management systems. New platforms and interfaces are developed every week, popping up like daisies (or wildfires). None of these tools have what we value most about education coded into them in advance.

[PDF] Thinking & acting like a designer: How design thinking supports innovation in K-12 education 

[PDF] Thinking & acting like a designer: How design thinking supports innovation in K-12 education  | TechTeacher | Scoop.it
The needs of the twenty-first century demand new approaches to learning. Today, student success requires skills for collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and problem solving, and these skills are increasingly becoming a focus in both K-12 and higher education settings. But twenty-first century learning needs to be much more if we are to expect young people to both navigate an unknown and complex future and meet the challenges that accompany it.
 
We need change-makers, people who will redefine problems, inspire new ideas, take informed risks, and never stop learning. Change-makers implement and evolve solutions that aim to better the individual and the whole, be it a classroom, a school, a community, or a society. This is the approach of a designer and the focus of this publication.
 
Design touches all aspects of our world. As this publication shows, designers work to impact the human experience, and they generally do this with particular mindsets that encourage looking at challenges as opportunities for design. Four mindsets typically guide the behavior of a designer: human-centered, collaborative, optimistic, and experimental. Designers also often act in a particular way, following a process that helps them generate and evolve ideas, beginning with problem-defining and empathy, using synthesis and prototyping to develop strategic ideas, and ending with implementation.
 
Taken together, how designers think and act make for design thinking, a human-centered approach to creative thinking and problem solving. Thinking and acting as a designer and, in turn, employing design thinking are powerful ways to encourage people to become change-makers in education.

The Future of Learning - PDF Version : The Paradigm Shift - MarkTreadwell.com | TechTeacher | Scoop.it

"This 200pp resource provides a window into the future of learning that is now urgently required in all schools - NOW! We need to prepare our young people for this century; a century where our learners are increasingly using YouTube to learn about what they need to learn, Just in Time; an era where our personal, social and work places are all experiencing enormous rates of change. How do we prepare learners a world that is increasingly complex; and one that is now demanding high levels of personal competency. 

"This journey begins with an emerging model for how our brain learns. Understanding this background provides us with the capacity to defining what the Learning process looks like (formally referred to as the inquiry process).  

"The human brain is extraordinary, but even more extraordinary is how little we have understood its capacity to learn. As humans, we alone have all four +(1) learning systems, allowing us to take our overwhelmingly rich sensory data to create knowledge and leverage that to build ideas and concepts and then apply those innovatively and ingeniously.

"The Learning Process harnesses this potential, allowing intelligence to be far more equitable than we ever imagined – "all learners are intelligent, and it is time everyone has the opportunity to fulfil the inherent potential that lays within."

"The physical copy of 'The Future of Learning' is accompanied with access to the electronic PDF version. The electronic version is updated every four months to ensure we are keeping you up to date with the very latest information on learning and how we can make that both relevant and equitable."

I really like this idea of students mapping their learning experiences. I like the potential of students being able to make their own authentic connections between their school learning experiences and their lives and the potential of their lives. I think it could be fascinating for students to complete a mapping experience in middle school, then revisit it in the middle of their junior year, and then again in the middle of their senior year. This experience could be quite informative for them, and provide some telling insight for educators.
