A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy

A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy
A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy by TeachThought Staff The modern learner has to sift through a lot of information. That means higher level thinking skills like analysis and evaluation are necessary just to reduce all the noise and establish the credibility of information. There is also the matter of utility. Evaluating information depends as much on context and circumstance as it does the nature of the data itself. Context matters, and the diagram from edorigami below captures this, though not from the perspective of the student and content knowledge, but the teacher and various pedagogical components themselves, including Higher-Order Thinking Skills, Peer Collaboration, and Media Fluency. (See also our framework on the 6 channels of 21st century Learning.)

In the age of blogging and social media, is there still room for books? Of course there is! Critical Friends: Building a Culture of Collaboration “… a critical friend is someone who is encouraging and supportive, but who also provides honest and often candid feedback that may be uncomfortable or difficult to hear. A critical friend is someone who agrees to speak truthfully, but constructively, about weaknesses, problems, and emotionally charged issues.” — The Glossary of Education Reform Being critical friends means that we can depend on our colleagues to help us reach our potential.

Feedback for Learning Infographic - VISIBLE LEARNING “Most of the feedback that students receive about their classroom work is from other students – an much of that feedback is wrong.” (John Hattie) The Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development (ASCD) is an international non-profit organization for teachers and educators. Its mission is “to develop programs, products, and services essential to the way educators learn, teach, and lead.” The Educational Leadership Magazine is ASCD’s flagship publication that is sent to its members eight times a year; subscriptions and individual issues are also available.

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including: –weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity –underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design –considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning Some educators seek out the ideal of a 21st century learning environment constantly, while others prefer that we lose the phrase altogether, insisting that learning hasn’t changed, and good learning looks the same whether it’s the 12th or 21st century. How can we teach kids to question? ~ A More Beautiful Question by Warren Berger While working on A More Beautiful Question, I got to know the folks at a fascinating nonprofit called The Right Question Institute. Dan Rothstein and Luz Santana, the RQI’s co-directors, have spent many years studying how kids (and adults, too) form questions. In developing their own “Question Formulation Technique,” they’ve found that it is, indeed, possible to teach kids to be better questioners—and in the process, help them become better thinkers. “People think of questioning as simple,” Rothstein told me, but when done right, “it’s a very sophisticated, high-level form of thinking.” Questioning can help expand and open up the way we think about a subject or a problem—but questions also can direct and focus our thinking. One of the most important things questioning does is to enable people of all ages to think and act in the face of uncertainty.

Where Students Create Their Own Learning Experiences Education 3.0–Where Students Create Their Own Learning Experiences by Terry Heick Curriculum maps are well-meaning and imminently practical documents that have guided educators–and education–for years. How these documents function in classrooms, schools, and districts is highly variable. They can be general skeletons, common to-do lists, or the do-or-die, alpha and omega of planning and instruction, products of an education system rightfully seeking to establish some sort of common direction, pace, and coverage.

How to Teach an Inductive Learning Lesson Sure, you’ve heard that we shouldn’t just spoon-feed information to our students, but what exactly should we be doing instead? One possibility is inductive learning. Inductive learning takes the traditional sequence of a lesson and reverses things. Instead of saying, “Here is the knowledge; now go practice it,” inductive learning says, “Here are some objects, some data, some artifacts, some experiences…what knowledge can we gain from them?” I Trace Photos to Make Clipart. Compare the Before & After! I enjoy drawing my own illustrations, clipart, and avatars. In fact, I made an instructional video for teachers and students you might want to check out. Since my freehand drawings end up looking ridiculous, my drawing technique relies on tracing a photo that’s on a background layer. I draw and fill on a layer on top of the photo and then hide the original photo. This allows my artwork to actually look like the person or object that I’ve drawn. The app I’ve been using for this is Adobe Illustrator Draw.

Preparing Students for the Computational Future This is an edited excerpt from “How to Teach Computational Thinking,” first published by Stephen Wolfram on Sept. 7, 2016. Pick any field “X,” from archaeology to zoology. There either is now a “computational X”, or there soon will be. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, farmers, whatever—the future of all these professions will be full of computational thinking. Whether it’s sensor-based medicine, computational contracts, education analytics or agriculture—success is going to rely on being able to do computational thinking well. Computational thinking is going to be a defining feature of the future, and it’s an incredibly important thing to be teaching to kids today.
