20 Tips To Promote A Self-Directed Classroom Culture

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
JennaMRyan's curator insight, December 12, 2013 12:25 PM

TeachThought provides a list of 20 tips to promote a self-directed classroom culture.  They say a great classroom culture needs to be a place in which:

Safe Place to FailEncourage CuriosityGive your students a voiceUse tiered responsibilityFoster peer supportConsider natural consequencesConfidence buildingModel how to learnDon’t impose limitations

10. Use real life examples of perseverance

11. Teach students how to set manageable goals

12. Teach students how to overcome disappointment

13. Reward attitude, not just aptitude

14. Believe in their abilities

15. Accept the mess

16. Offer reflection after the project is over

17. Give immediate feedback

18. Give both short and long-term assignments

19. Identify obstacles and negative beliefs

20. Let go of the idea that students success reflects on you

 

To me, the only way to establish classroom culture is for it to be self-directed.  Culture is something that is hard to put your finger on because it really is intangible, it is something that has to be taught, transferred, and supported by everyone in the room.  These suggestions are great guidelines for how to think about student success and believing good things for your class.  Some practical suggestions I would like to use for sure, are peer support and giving students a voice.  I believe kids are more inclined to become passionate learners when they feel like they have a voice in what goes on in the classroom.

Lauren Yachera's curator insight, March 7, 2014 12:12 PM

Really insightful tips that help to promote a self-directed classroom culture. I came across a few that I never really considered before: making the classroom a safe place to fail, and considering natural consequences. Both of these go together hand-in-hand when it comes to students attitudes towards not doing as well as they may have expected. Students need to know that it is okay to fail (sometimes, not all of the time!) and that they can bounce back from it. They cannot be afraid of failure; if they are, they may never try new things. It's important to build a nurturing and supportive classroom, where the teacher acts as a neutral supporter (rather than an angry, disappointed one) that encourages the student that everything will be okay. We have to help them if they don't do well, not hurt them even more.

Sophia Vitilio's curator insight, March 13, 2014 8:06 PM

I personally really liked these tips and will definitely be using some of them in my future classroom.  I actually really thought it was different and liked that one of the tips was to make it a safe place to fail.  This is because I feel like everything about school is always about getting good grades and students feel ashamed to get a bad grade, especially a failing grade. This makes it very important to create an environment where it is okay to fail.

Learning IS Personal

Learning IS Personal | digital learning 2012 and beyond | Scoop.it
Learning is personal. Each of us is unique. Because learners are so diverse, learning needs to start with each learner.

Via Kathleen McClaskey, juandoming
Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 31, 2013 2:25 PM

 Think about your own experiences when you were young and you felt like you could play and choose how you would learn? Then think about the times when you were told how to play or learn.

 

How did you feel in each of these situations?

 

Each of us has our own experiences growing up, different relationships, and how we learned. Each of us comes from small or large families with different backgrounds, neighborhoods, and friends. Because of these experiences, we are different than others. We are unique. Our learning experiences are personal to us. We are born inquisitive, curious, and creative. The power of us is our diversity. Each of us learns in different ways and may choose a different way to learn.

Thank you for sharing. If you follow Howard Garner's multi-intelligence theories, then learning is individual.

In my previous article I discussed the importance of ensuring that your data is clean and processed before attempting any form of data visualisation. Here I will share some really awesome tools that (once your data is clean and ready to use) you can have at your disposal to create mind-blowing representations of the facts and figures. Here is a list of tools, some more open and adjustable than others, that add value to your raw data and can be used as a source of inspiration and design when approaching the visualisation process....

Yep... it's coming... it's here... Seth Goday, Stephen Heppel, Sugata Mitra, Jose Ferreiram, Lois Mbugua, Margaret Kositany.. Dafne Keller.... share some of their ideas on the future of education..... Content is becoming a commodity that you can find everywhere and available  to almost everyone... Education should go back to having instructors and student engage in dialogues, where thinkinf skills, problem solving and discipline passion are present...

 

Kids should be solving interesting problems anot just memorizing answers to probles already solved--- we should look at students in their eyes and believe in them and push them forward...

 

Teachers should be saying.. The topic for today is this--- Now, open your notebooks and le's explore and find out about it..
