Explore - Your Space Education Resource - Sponsored by Boeing - Space Orbit Solar System Lesson Plans Videos Home In iTEC (Innovative Technologies for Engaging Classrooms, 2010-2014), European Schoolnet worked with education ministries, technology providers and research organisations to transform the way that technology is used in schools. Over the course of the project, educational tools and resources were piloted in over 2,500 classrooms across 20 European countries, with the goal of providing a sustainable model for fundamentally redesigning teaching and learning. The project involved 26 project partners, including 14 Ministries of Education, and funding of €9.45 million from the European Commission’s FP7 programme.

Social Media Classroom In an educational setting, the social media classroom is designed to augment or—when physical co-presence is not possible—to replace face-to-face interaction. The power derived from using social media in group learning processes comes not from a more efficient computerized extension of older communication forms—the classroom discussion, texts to be read, essays and theses to be written. The power of social media in education and elsewhere derives from their affordances for forms of communication and social behavior that were previously prohibitively difficult or expensive for more than a tiny elite to benefit. The greatest value that the SMC can add to a learning community is its ability to support critical, collaborative inquiry—a student-centric pedagogy that engages students in actively constructing knowledge together about issues that matter to them, rather than passively absorbing it from texts, lectures, and discussions.

Bloom's taxonomy Bloom's wheel, according to the Bloom's verbs and matching assessment types. The verbs are intended to be feasible and measurable. Bloom's taxonomy is a classification of learning objectives within education. Bloom's taxonomy refers to a classification of the different objectives that educators set for students (learning objectives). Bloom's taxonomy is considered to be a foundational and essential element within the education community. History[edit] Although named after Bloom, the publication of Taxonomy of Educational Objectives followed a series of conferences from 1949 to 1953, which were designed to improve communication between educators on the design of curricula and examinations. The first volume of the taxonomy, "Handbook I: Cognitive" (Bloom et al. 1956) was published in 1956. Cognitive[edit] Skills in the cognitive domain revolve around knowledge, comprehension, and critical thinking on a particular topic.

Inset is dead! Long live Inset! Inset days are often criticised, with both teachers and parents finding them an annoyance. Jane Basnett, Downe House’s head of Modern Foreign Languages, tells us why Inset days need to be remoulded into something worthwhile. September: So, the lovely, long, hot summer is over. Well, maybe not so hot, but lovely and long anyway. You have rested, recuperated and regrouped. You have done lots of reading for pleasure and reading for work and, if you are lucky, the two will have coincided. You know the thing. Then, just when you think it's all over, and mentally you have got your lips on a nice cup of coffee, some wag in the audience decides to prolong the agony and asks a question that really did not need asking. If you are lucky, the talk has been about some methodology or new teaching idea that really interests you and you can see how it is relevant to you and what you are trying to achieve in your lessons. I think these types of Inset are something to which we can all relate.

Open Culture Сущность задачного подхода в обучении Если ничто другое не помогает, попробуй действовать по инструкции! Принцип Кана Педагоги давно пришли к выводу, что на современном уроке «передача знаний» не является главной целью. Более того, такая организация урока, где детям выдаются готовые рафинированные знания, губи­тельна для познавательной деятельности. Ученик должен быть поставлен в условия поиска, заблуждений, радостных открытий и огорчений от временных неудач. Еще великий Сократ отмечал, что «учитель – не тот, кто дает, а тот, у кого берут». Система запланированных целей неразрывно связана с системой действий, которые ведут к выполнению этих целей. Несмотря на большие изменения в российском образовании, по-прежнему наиболее традиционным является «знаниевый» подход в обучении. «Знаниевый» подход развивает почти исключительно интеллектуальную сферу сознания, причем только ту ее часть, которая связана с памятью, совершенно не затрагивая волевую, эмоционально-чувственную и мотивационную сферы сознания обучаемых. Знание. Понимание. 1.

L'Agence nationale des Usages des TICE - Les Wikis et les réseaux sociaux pour développer l’argumentation par Maud Tournery * Les wikis et les réseaux sociaux font de plus en plus l'objet d'études qui cherchent à déterminer l'intérêt de ces outils collaboratifs pour l'enseignement et l'apprentissage. Apprendre de manière collaborative en ligne peut permettre d'étendre et d'approfondir l'apprentissage, de tester de nouvelles idées tout en les partageant au sein d'une communauté, et de recevoir des retours constructifs et critiques. Argumentation et débat dans un réseau de collégiens Nicholas Lawrence et Joe O'Brien, de l'Université du Kansas (États-Unis), ont étudié l'utilisation d'un réseau social dans lequel des lycéens devaient débattre sur les raisons pouvant justifier une guerre. Les wikis et l'argumentation chez les élèves de cycle 3 Initialement, les élèves devaient faire des recherches sur un sujet de leur choix. Des résultats similaires ont été observés par Alain Désilets et son équipe du Conseil national de recherches du Canada. Cela implique par exemple : Conclusion
