Critical Digital Pedagogy and Design

Critical Digital Pedagogy and Design | What Is School | Scoop.it
Critical digital pedagogy has as one of the primary ends to its inquiry the development of these multiliteracies. Look beyond the tool to how we use the tool. Look beyond how we use the tool to how the tool uses us. Look beyond how the tool uses us to how we can resist, hack, change, or simply “prefer not to.”

In our world today we are surrounded by visuals. Yet we walk into many classrooms and see many written texts that often have few visuals. This post begins with a quote from John Medina, the author of Brain Rules (and a developmental molecular biologist). He states "We are incredible at remembering pictures. Hear a piece of information, and three days later you’ll remember 10% of it. Add a picture and you’ll remember 65%. Professionals everywhere need to know about the incredible inefficiency of text-based information and the incredible effects of images (http://www.brainrules.net/vision)."

There is also a video that was created by students explaining their frustration with the lack of visual learning that takes place in the classroom.

Additional sections include:

* Use Visuals, Images, Data Visualizations, Infographics and Videos to Teach Concepts

* Use and Teach Learners How to Make Concept Maps and Graphic Organizers

* Use and Teach Learners How to Do Sketchnotes

* Allow and Encourage Learners to Show What They Know Through Visual Imagery

* Teach Visual Literacy

Jackie Gerstein provides a thought provoking post with links to additional resources. Take the time to read and consider how you might increase the use of visuals in your classroom. And if you have not read John Medina's book you might want to check out his website.

Learning in the age of Social Networks

Learning in the age of Social Networks | What Is School | Scoop.it

Our understanding of how to learn in this globally connected world is limited by our experience of learning. Our formal education has led us to believe that learning is something given to us. We are one step removed from the process of planning and regulating our learning for so much of our lives as learners that we become dependent on educators. We have powerful tools at our disposal and yet make poor use of them. Networks which should bring us closer together are used to divide and segregate. Instead of enhancing our collective understanding we are confronted by the challenges of alternate facts and fake news. We have an abundance of information but seemingly little wisdom and little understanding of who we may trust and how we may find truth.

Far more complex couplings between SAMR and Bloom are possible, involving convergent/divergent branchings, oscillations between levels, skipping of some SAMR levels, etc. Nonetheless, the simple structure described above is well suited to beginning practitioners’ needs, and even retains usefulness for more experienced faculty.

I love the simple, yet informative, graphic that opens this article for teachers about the 4 phases of Inquiry-Based Learning. We talk a lot about inquiry and how important it is to engage students through questioning but how much attention is given to the teaching professional to make sure s/he knows how to implement a quality program? This is a wonderful article to share with teachers and it's great for librarians, too. Think about how we use these 4 phases every time a patron comes in looking for a book suggestion. You interact to get a feel for who they are, you get clarification about what they're looking for, you engage in the "reference interview" to narrow down  your suggestions, and then you provide a list of suggestions or "design" the reading experience. We've been modeling this for years! Enjoy!

What You Need for a Caring Classroom:  outline three kinds of empathy kids need for success at work and in life.

What You Need for a Caring Classroom:  outline three kinds of empathy kids need for success at work and in life. | What Is School | Scoop.it

By Daniel Goleman and Peter M. Senge

 

 

More than three decades of research shows that telling our kids they are smart and praising achievement is not the way to get results. A new article in Scientific American, “The Secret to Raising Smart Kids,” suggests that “focusing on ‘process,’ rather than intelligence or talent, produces high achievers in school and in life.” This process consists of personal effort and effective strategies.

 

One process we are talking about today is building empathy into the classroom setting, and how developing emotional intelligence is key to success inside and outside of the classroom.
