The Paradigm Shift: 4 Goals Of 21st Century Learning 4 Knowledge Domains That Change Students & Communities by Terry Heick As academic standards shift, technology evolves, and student habits change, schools are being forced to consider new ways of framing curriculum and engaging students in the classroom, and project-based learning is among the most successful and powerful of these possibilities. As both a planning and a learning tool, project-based learning challenges teachers to make new decisions about how they plan student learning experiences, while simultaneously empowering students to take a more active role in the learning process. In this context of trying to make since of exactly what progressive learning was, in 2009 I sketched out a graphic that visualized 9 Characteristics of 21st Century Learning, and recently created a follow-up framework, The Inside-Out Learning Model. The idea here is to clarify the kinds of knowledge–and knowledge domains–that create actual change in the lives of students and communities.

What is Lesson Study? - Teacher Development Trust Lesson Study is a Japanese model of teacher-led research in which a triad of teachers work together to target an identified area for development in their students’ learning. Using existing evidence, participants collaboratively research, plan, teach and observe a series of lessons, using ongoing discussion, reflection and expert input to track and refine their interventions. The Japanese Lesson Study model has been advocated in the UK for some time both by the National College for Teaching and Leadership and its predecessor organisations. The outline of the approach is as follows: Evidence from the use of Lesson Study by hundreds of leading teachers working with ‘coasting schools’ who used Lesson Study as a coaching approach to improve pupil progress in writing and mathematics at age 11 showed considerable impact year on year (Dudley, 2012).
In Conversation with Professor John Hattie Few people have generated as much conversation and interest around what works in education as Professor John Hattie. As a proponent of evidence-based quantitative research methodologies on the influence of student achievement, John’s research work is internationally acclaimed. His passion for research and education led him to undertake the largest ever meta-analysis of the effect of different factors on educational outcomes, the result of which was his acclaimed 2007 book, ‘Visible Learning’. John recently contributed two papers to Pearson’s Open Ideas series, both of which have attracted much comment and attention from the education community. The first of these papers, ‘What Doesn’t Work in Education: The Politics of Distraction,’ reviews the billions of dollars spent by governments on common policy fixes, and questions their effectiveness.The second paper, ‘What Works in Education: The Politics of Collaborative Expertise,’ discusses potential solutions to the problems.

10 Rules for Students, Teachers, and Life by John Cage and Sister Corita Kent Buried in various corners of the web is a beautiful and poignant list titled Some Rules for Students and Teachers, attributed to John Cage, who passed away twenty years ago this week. The list, however, originates from celebrated artist and educator Sister Corita Kent and was created as part of a project for a class she taught in 1967-1968. It was subsequently appropriated as the official art department rules at the college of LA’s Immaculate Heart Convent, her alma mater, but was commonly popularized by Cage, whom the tenth rule cites directly. Legendary choreographer Merce Cunningham, Cage’s longtime partner and the love of his life, kept a copy of it in the studio where his company rehearsed until his death. It appears in Stewart Brand’s cult-classic Essential Whole Earth Catalog, published in 1986, the year Kent passed away.
