PBL and STEAM Education: A Natural Fit @Edutopia

PBL and STEAM Education: A Natural Fit @Edutopia | ESL-PBL | Scoop.it
Both project-based learning and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) education are growing rapidly in our schools. Some schools are doing STEAM, some are doing PBL, and some are leveraging the strengths of both. Both PBL and STEAM help schools target rigorous learning and problem solving. As many teachers know, STEAM education isn't just the course content—it’s the process of being scientists, mathematicians, engineers, artists, and technological entrepreneurs. Here are some ways that PBL and STEAM can complement each other in your classroom and school.

6 strategies for Differentiated Instruction in Project-Based Learning

6 strategies for Differentiated Instruction in Project-Based Learning | ESL-PBL | Scoop.it
Project-based learning (PBL) naturally lends itself to differentiated instruction. By design, it is student-centered, student-driven, and gives space for teachers to meet the needs of students in a variety of ways. PBL can allow for effective differentiation in assessment as well as daily management and instruction. PBL experts will tell you this, but I often hear teachers ask for real examples, specifics to help them contextualize what it "looks like" in the classroom. We all need to try out specific ideas and strategies to get our brains working in a different context. Here are some specific differentiation strategies to use during a PBL project.

Why Digital Learning is Reshaping Education

Why Digital Learning is Reshaping Education | ESL-PBL | Scoop.it

The ways in which students learn are changing rapidly thanks to technology, and both students and teachers will benefit from it. There are several specific changes that we can expect to see as digital learning takes over education. For one, the way teachers present information and how students work with that information has changed. Students are asked to be more hands-on and collaborative than ever before. There are also new skills that students must learn, such as digital literacy.

Highly qualified and competent teachers are fundamental for equitable and effective education systems. Teachers today are facing higher and more complex expectations to  help students reach their full potential and become valuable members of 21st century society. The nature and variety of these demands imply that teachers, more than ever before, must be professionals who make decisions based on a robust and updated knowledge base.

 

This publication presents research and ideas from multiple perspectives on pedagogical knowledge - the knowledge of teaching and learning - and the changing nature of the teaching profession. It provides a modern account of teachers’ professional competence, and how this relates to student learning. The report looks at knowledge dynamics in the teaching profession and investigates how teachers’ knowledge can be measured.

fredis n bonilla's curator insight, April 1, 2017 3:00 PM

People tend to have clean and perfect surroundings and it is a must that everyone stays in an outstanding location that is clean. Scrubbing and cleaning the constructed buildings and the cleaning after the revocation work is to be handled carefully as this is one tedious task if handled in a wrong way. In this busy schedule many of us try to complete the task as per the time and missing the deadlines causes a great loss in several aspects. Hiring the professional experts is the only way to get the task completed as per the schedule. But it is a must to locate the professional expert who can assign a good team of professionals who are certified to clean the places. There are several experts who offer residential cleaning California along with many other friendly services that clean the complete area.

• Rely over the online research and then get the perfect solution for all your cleaning needs as the internet offers perfect solution which meets all your requirements. With the support of the team who work to meet all the expectations every cleaning task is completed according to the schedule and one can earn clean and shinning areas.

• The best part with the online research is that one can get a chance to request the vendors irrespective of the time and the team completes the work as per the deadline. The post renovation cleaning or the commercial cleaning involves cleaning each and every part of the building, but there is always a slight difference in the process of cleaning.

• The cleaning services are not just moping and dusting, but there is a lot to do under cleaning. There are several cleaning requirements which are only fulfilled under the guidance of an expert and the reliable sources support in offering a complete cleaning.

• They make sure that each and every particular of the building gets cleaned and the cleaning team typically fulfills all the requirements. But while picking a contractor look for the license and certification as it is a must to seek the support of a trustworthy vendor.

Earn amazing surroundings just by seeking the support of the cleaning team, which always offers the best services for all unexpected cleaning needs. So do a thorough research and then hire the professional expert who offers the janitorial services in Santa Clara as these are to be completed in a systematic manner.

How Education Technology Can Help Foster Social and Emotional Skills

How Education Technology Can Help Foster Social and Emotional Skills | ESL-PBL | Scoop.it

"...a new global survey conducted by The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) found that parents and educators have a narrow understanding of SEL. They view SEL primarily as a means of achieving better classroom discipline rather than as a way of ensuring better academic and economic outcomes over the long term.

 

"Education technology can help address this and other key barriers to fostering SEL while complementing and extending children’s learning experiences, according to a new report by the World Economic Forum titled New Vision for Education: Fostering Social and Emotional Learning through Technology, written in collaboration with BCG. Education technology can personalize learning, engage the disengaged, complement what happens in the classroom, extend education outside the classroom, and provide access to learning to students who otherwise might not have sufficient educational opportunities.

 

"To date, however, most of the learning strategies commonly used to develop social and emotional skills do not use technology or use it in only a limited way. While many parents and educators recognize the potential for education technology to build social and emotional skills, they do not fully understand which technologies hold the most promise or how to use them best. For example, in the US, 67% of teachers believe technology is best used for foundational subjects, such as literacy and numeracy; in comparison, only 43% believe it is best used for social and emotional skills—results that are similar to findings in other countries.

 

"The report finds that policy makers, parents, educators, and others seeking to use technology to give children the social and emotional skills they need can pursue three critical opportunities:

 

"Help parents, educators, and others understand what really boosts social and emotional learning. On the basis of our extensive research, we have identified 55 product features (detailed in the report) that are highly correlated with the ten critical social and emotional skills.

 

"Embed SEL into products that support foundational skills such as literacy and numeracy, where 95% of venture-capital investment dollars directed to education technology have flowed since 2011.

 

"Take advantage of recent technological innovations—such as wearable devices, virtual reality, and apps—to foster SEL."

Creating the Tech Leaders of Tomorrow: How to Inspire Your Students to Lead in the Digital Age by MATTHEW LYNCH

Creating the Tech Leaders of Tomorrow: How to Inspire Your Students to Lead in the Digital Age by MATTHEW LYNCH | ESL-PBL | Scoop.it
There’s no denying that the digital age has transformed education. However, education in this time of technological transformation needs to extend beyond the question of “How can we incorporate technology and digital tools into the classroom?” and into the realm of “How can we better prepare today’s students to be leaders in technology tomorrow?” Successfully preparing students to become future technology leaders requires a good deal more than simply equipping students to go off to college to study engineering, computer science, mathematics, or another technology-related field. It requires fostering curiosity, collaborative skills, and a willingness to try — and fail …

Natalia Jimenez's curator insight, April 6, 2018 10:30 AM
There is clear evidence that technology has changed the world where we are today. For that reason, the importance of including technological tools in the classrooms has increased considerably. Moreover, it is important to say that students need more than just know and use these technological tools; they need to develop some skills such as collaboration, willingness to try and fail among others in order to become the the leaders in technology of the future. Also, one of the main purpose of the teachers is to foster curiosity in their learners and inspire them to participate in the digital era.

This article contains very important information for my future work as a teacher since it shows me how I can inspire my students to take an active participation not only in their learning process but also in the digital era in which they can share different knowledge and also, they can receive feedback about their work. Now, I am aware that including digital tools in my classes is not enough; I need to find ways to encourage my students to be future digital leaders.

Remember when you were in school and you had to cram hundreds of pages of textbook material into your head before every big test? If you were like most students, you and your friends probably developed all kinds of tactics to make the grade. Maybe you made flashcards, or reviewed recordings of your professors’ lectures, or came up with intricate mnemonic devices to memorize the material at hand. You may have argued with your classmates about which method was best—but the truth is that, when it comes to learning, one size does not fit all. Scientists and psychologists have developed a number of different models to understand the different ways that people learn best. One popular theory, the VARK model, identifies four primary types of learners: visual, auditory, reading/writing, and kinesthetic. Each learning type responds best to a different method of teaching. Auditory learners will remember information best after reciting it back to the presenter, while kinesthetic learners will jump at the chance to participate in a hands-on activity.

THE OFFICIAL ANDREASCY's curator insight, March 4, 2017 2:06 AM

Digital storytelling is incredibly popular given the proliferation of new technologies. This paper discusses its use from the perspective of secondary students’ academic achievement, attitudes towards physics and self-efficacy perception. The findings from the experimental pretest and posttest design elicited important insights. DST participants seemed to benefit in terms of their physics performance. Students’ self-efficacy perceptions and attitudes towards physics did not show alteration for the experimental group.

 

Overall it appears that digital storytelling has a positive effect on learning and therefore more research is needed to explore and contribute to the field specifically in relation to critical, reflective and creative thinking and learning motivation and students’ engagement.
