Introducing Design Thinking to Elementary Learners Design thinking is an approach to learning that includes considering real-world problems, research, analysis, conceiving original ideas, lots of experimentation, and sometimes building things by hand. The projects teach students how to make a stable product, use tools, think about the needs of another, solve challenges, overcome setbacks and stay motivated on a long-term problem. The projects also teach students to build on the ideas of others, vet sources, generate questions, deeply analyze topics, and think creatively and analytically. Many of those same qualities are goals of the Common Core State Standards. (What Does ‘Design Thinking’ Look Like in School?) I use the following activities to introduce elementary students to the design thinking process.

Most extant examples are schools serving the needs of children with visual limitations, or hearing limitations, or cognitive issues or physical limitations. In this case, the design would need to meet the needs and enhance the independence of children with a mix of all of these issues. The initial phase of data gathering by the architect was replaced by joint research when the new Head Teacher was hired. The firm committed to extensive and continuous user engagement as well as the participation of specialized experts. Hazelwood’s Head Teacher worked closely with the design team in all phases of the project.
Cooperative Learning Original module developed by Rebecca Teed, John McDaris, and Cary Roseth Enhanced by KimMarie McGoldrick with assistance from Jim Cooper, Dan Marburger, Jennifer Rhoads, Karl Smith What is Cooperative Learning? Cooperative Learning involves structuring classes around small groups that work together in such a way that each group member's success is dependent on the group's success. There are different kinds of groups for different situations, but they all balance some key elements that distinguish cooperative learning from competitive or individualistic learning.
Blog How to Use Technology in the Classroom - MentorMob Blog Everyone seems to think that technology can help students, parents, and teachers solve the host of challenges facing education today. But how exactly tech should be integrated into existing lesson plans, what kind of web access kids should have in school, and how new hardware gets paid for are just a few of the barriers to change. But there are two particular models for tech integration that seem promising: Flipped Classroom and Project Based Learning. The critical questions these two teaching methods ask are these: how can classroom learning facilitate a collaborative atmosphere that’s engaging for students and that mimics the 21st century work environment? These Are The Reasons Why Learners Forget Your Training "Training doesn’t help one jot if people can’t remember it in the real world" —Teresa Ewington Our biggest goal in training is to get students to remember the material. In order to do this more effectively, it helps to understand exactly what causes the mind to forget things. By understanding what makes a person forget, we can incorporate things into our programs that help counteract those causes. Forgetting is an important function.
ClassroomScreen ClassroomScreen.com Hi there! I'm a teacher in the Netherlands and I wanted to use a simple tool with all my favorite digiboard widgets to help my students focus more on their work.

Best Practices in Educational Facilities Investments Exemplary design categories: multi-sensory environment, outdoor spaces, safety, special needs provision How the facility meets the needs of education and communities: The ambition of this school for children and young people with sensory impairments was to create a challenging and stimulating environment for all. Varied wall and floor surface textures and built-in navigational aids - such as trail rails, varied ceiling heights, and the print, Braille, moon and graphical signage - help children to navigate around the building independently.

10 Promises of eLearning: Unrealized or Unrealistic ? The worldwide E-Learning market is rapidly growing, estimated to reach $51.5 billion by 2016, growing at the year-on-year rate of 7.6%. The growth will be much more significantly disruptive in the coming years with regions such as Asia, Latin America, Africa and Eastern Europe also jumping onto the bandwagon. Trends of Bring-Your-Own-Devices Sales of smart mobile devices is adding fuel to this fire. eLearning has become strategically important for various demographics: There have been innumerable claims about the superiority of online-delivered learning over traditional classroom-methods. E-learning has been labelled as an excellent method of achieving personalised, self-paced, tailored learning that is user-adaptive yet affordable and accessible as well as interactive and engaging with newer methods such as gamification. However, not all learners possess the necessary self-awareness and motivation to learn independently.
