PDF Buddy | Online PDF Editor RM Bacon Weekly Five Keys to Rigorous Project-Based Learning Voiceover: How will today’s children function in a dangerous world? What means will they use to carve the future? Will they be equipped to find the answers to tomorrow’s problems? Teacher: When you think about traditional learning you think of a student sitting in a classroom and being talked at. Teacher: Now I imagine a lot of you are still thinking... Teacher: They are supposed to be a sponge. Peggy Ertmer: So there are a lot of different ways to approach PBL, a lot of different ways to implement it, but really it all boils down to five essential keys: real-world connection, core to learning, structured collaboration, student driven, and multifaceted assessment. Student: One of the problems in the ocean is that with the higher amount of CO2 calcifying organisms are decreasing and we’re testing to see how well life in the ocean lives without calcifying organisms. Student: --four by eight feet. Peggy Ertmer: So the second commonality is the PBL unit provides academic rigor. Student: Yes.

The Techie Teacher: and a Research FREEBIE My last post, Internet Research for Grades 3-5, got me thinking about research skills in the younger grades. It is a hard skill to hit at that age, especially for those children who have not developed the literacy skills needed to learn new material. Our school district has a subscription to PebbleGo which is an incredible site for research and listening to readings. Another way I have included research skills in the younger grades is by using Brief.lys. Here is an example of a I created about the Water Cycle: This is what it looks like: Super easy to use and a great way to touch upon research skills with the younger ones by finding easy to read websites and other age appropriate resources! Do you have an inquisitive class this year?

Koulun arki ansaitsee äänensä kuuluville | Kuluneen viikon töiden reflektointi auttaa niin opettajaa kuin opiskelijaakin kehittään osaamistaan. Tiedätkö miten kollegasi työviikko meni? Missä hän onnistui ja minkä olisi voinut tehdä toisin? Suomalainen työ ja yrittäjyys kaipaavat arvonnostoa. Bhosen ajatuksia soveltaen Siilinjärven lukion historian ja yhteiskuntaopin opettaja Aira Roivainen alkoi miettiä, miksei koulujen henkilökunnan, rehtoreiden, opettajien ja opinto-ohjaajien, sekä opiskelijoiden onnistumisia ja työskentelyn karikoita voisi käsitellä samoin. Tottumus reflektioon olisi Roivaisen mielestä mainio työkalu opettajan ammatillisessa kasvussa. – Oman toiminnan arviointi on aivan keskeinen osa kehittyvää koulua ja oppivaa opettajaa. Myös filosofian tohtori Lauri Järvilehdon mukaan koulun tulisi keskittyä aiempaa enemmän siihen, että jokainen löytäisi itselleen parhaan ja mielekkään tavan oppia. – Oppiminen on itsessään mielettömän hauskaa, ei sitä tarvitse erikseen hauskuuttaa. Anna koulun arjelle ääni!
