educationalreading - home TIC et pédagogie inversée Le concept de pédagogie inversée est de plus en plus populaire actuellement même si cette approche est loin d'être novatrice, comme on le constate dans ce billet d'eSchoolNews consacré au flipped learning. Un certain nombre de contributions en ligne s'en font néanmoins l'écho depuis le début de l'année 2012. Qu'est-ce que la pédagogie inversée ? Pour reprendre la définition de ZoneTIC, la pédagogie inversée est "une stratégie d’enseignement où la partie magistrale du cours est donnée à faire en devoir, à la maison, alors que les traditionnels devoirs, donc les travaux, problèmes et autres activités, sont réalisés en classe". Cette approche aux contours encore flous repose à l'évidence sur l'usage des outils numériques et vise à éviter la dérive d'un enseignement trop frontal et magistral.

thunks « @ TeacherToolkit Fancy a TeacherToolkit Thunk? ‘Thunks’ originate from the award-winning author, Ian Gilbert of Independent Thinking. Thunks are simply another way of looking at a simple question, whether that be the way it is phrased, or the literary vocabulary of its content. Ian’s ‘Little Book of Thunks‘ can be purchased here. Using my teaching experience, I have adapted the ‘Thunks’ concept into school-related scenarios and have posted a series of topics that myself and a selected number of Guest Thunkers have answered. Here are my @TeacherToolkit Top 100 Thunks. Have your own political views changed as a teacher, during your time as a teacher? How would we teach without whiteboards and projectors? Consider writing one of the remaining Thunks? Propose a new topic to me here… Ignore the #DfE: Teachers are doing it for themselves! Like this: Like Loading... .. Archives

Encouraging Imaginative Play Childhood is at risk, and the first thing on the endangered list appears to be a lack of imagination. This is largely due to the inability of some children to create pictures in their own minds. A simple skill many adults might assume…but one that needs nurturing and developing in early childhood. When a child is accustomed to having everything presented to him in ready made pictures, he loses the faculty of creating his own pictures in his imagination. Why then would we promote the erosion of childhood and the necessity of play which develops picture forming capabilities? Early childhood is often called by psychologists as the “formative years”. A child is constantly exploring, adapting, engaging, responding and readapting to everything he/she encounters. As modern medicine is making the period of old age longer, we have been eroding childhood at alarming rates. Imaginative play first emerges in toddlers utilizing objects in ways other than what they were intended.

Flipped learning: A response to five common criticisms One of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what “flipped learning” is. Over the past few years, the Flipped Learning method has created quite a stir. Some argue that this teaching method will completely transform education, while others say it is simply an opportunity for boring lectures to be viewed in new locations. While the debate goes on, the concept of Flipped Learning is not entirely new. Dr. It’s our opinion that one of the reasons this debate exists is because there is no true definition of what Flipped Learning is. Dr.

dandesignthink: Need to improve student... SOLO Taxonomy This post would not have been possible without the help from DamianClark @clarky099 , Neil Watkin @nwatkin and the amazing Darren Mead @DKMead SOLO Taxonomy is something that I have researched for a long while and now I’ve finally had the opportunity to try it out for real in the classroom – with, in my mind, staggering results. For everything you need to know about SOLO Taxonomy please refer to the fabulous HookED website. In a nutshell the taxonomy allows “.. the learner to think about the strengths and weaknesses of their own thinking when they are learning and to make thoughtful decisions on what to do next.” The taxonomy focusses on learning, is extremely student friendly, allows teachers and students to consider feed”forward” strategies, can be used for any learning context and above all is easier to use and understand than Bloom’s Taxonomy. So the taxonomy itself…. I trialled the use of SOLO Taxonomy with a “middle ability” (I hate that phrase!) These were their results…. Like this:

21st Century Ed concepts ‘Post It Note Pedagogy’ – Top Ten Tips for Teaching & Learning The Ultimate Low Cost, High Impact Teaching Tool? The humble post it note – sometimes you don’t need to invest in a fleet of iPads, interactive whiteboards or Visualisers to make the learning visible and to have a positive impact upon learning.
