three categories of a modern approach to learning–Modern, Self-Directed, and Social. These broad categories are then broken up into four principles per category. Each principle is then described by its Reality (its function) and Opportunity (the result of that function).
Self-organised learning environments (Soles) are models of learning where students do just that. Professor Sugata Mitra’s award-winning 2013 TED talk on Soles, “Build a School in the Cloud”, continues to divides the world of education. big maths questions such as “When and why should we estimate?”; “What do good problem-solvers do when they get stuck?”; “How do people use data to influence others?” In a Sole context, these questions can help learners to develop digital competencies and linguistic skills, as well as literacy, information-seeking and retrieval skills.
Yes, And: How Improvisation Reverses "No, But" Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration--Lessons from The Second City Embracing failure to accelerate high performance Leading by listening and by learning to follow Innovating by making something out of nothing
"improve the learning that matters, and particularly the outcomes needed in a digital age, namely, the high level intellectual skills of critical thinking, innovation, entrepreneurship, problem-solving , high-level multimedia communication, and above all, effective knowledge management."
If I see that this matters, this whole give-and-take between you and I will change. ..Teach me what Google can’t. Give me context. Help me ask my own questions. Show me what knowledge and understanding and wisdom can do for me. Help me to see where one stops, and the other begins.
hands-on problem solving and communicating ideas in the most direct way.. a celebrated example of integrated literacy in Galileo’s notebooks. His systematic use of observational drawing with writing pioneered the presentation of visual evidence as it changed our world view.
But what are they doing? Remembering the content is irrelevant; building capacity is everything. That's where the learning really happens.
four processes: what we pay attention to, how we encode it, what happens to it in storage, and when and how we retrieve it. Almost everything we do or know, we learn through these stages, for our learning is memory, and the bulk of our memory is influenced by these
understand good design and the need to test deeper understanding.
Here’s a few rules to follow if you’re new to this game:
1. Test understanding, not facts
What’s easy is to simply extract all the nouns, objects and quantities, then testing for recall. The trick is to push beyond this to test understanding. It’s not the ‘what’ but the ‘why’ that often matters but remains untested. "
four levels of learning:
Familiar – knew but can’t now remember
Recognised – correctly recognise answer in a multiple choice question
Recalled – recall with effort but without help and takes time
Automatic – immediate, effortless, high-performance recall
It is quick and ‘Automatic’ recall that is the goal of high-performance learning and expert ability. "

many SME (and many teachers, for that matter) are not self-learners. Often, you'll have to lead them through the process"
A framework for a common set of developmentally appropriate expectations for children ages three to five, within a context of shared responsibility for helping children meet these expectations.
styles and attitudes of gaining information as well as promoting a positive disposition toward exploring new things. The five components of this domain are curiosity, risk-taking, imagination and invention, persistence, and reflection and interpretation.
"a cMOOC wasn’t a ‘course’ at all. Instead, a heady amalgam of ‘massive’, ‘open’ and ‘online’ was leading to a quite extraordinary place where the normal rules of learning engagement just didn’t apply. There were a couple of facilitators but no teachers. Participants were encouraged to create and maintain their own blogs. Social media was used for discussion and sharing resources. Topics were explored together, connections made and groups were formed and maintained long after the MOOC was over. cMOOCs never die – I still check out the CCK11 page on Facebook."
"The Global Learning Framework is about how we learning with and collaborate on the Internet. This community is for the sharing of ideas and use of these methods to empower the global poor with the tools and resources of the world."
favorite way of mine to learn. Stories have passed the test of time, and continue to enlighten and motivate people every day to learn and grow. Technology has transformed storytelling. Watch a Pixar movie and try to tell me differently… Technology expands our depth of story and allows us to share stories wider and farther than ever before. When something goes “viral” it means a story has struck a chord and reached millions of people unlike any other time in history. As teachers and students we can use technology to transform our storytelling, and how we learn."
learning how to assess their own work using a rubric, a scoring guide that lays out what is expected of students.
Gust is one of a growing number of schools across the country where student self-assessment is one type of formative assessment that is woven into the school day. The idea is that just as teachers can teach more effectively if they check students' progress along the way, students can learn more effectively if they understand what they're working toward and where they are."
