陶西平:“翻转课堂”与“生成课程”-搜狐教育

Posted: July 30, 2015, 8:49 am

Comments:

  • 其实是生成课堂,生成课程理念在中学的应用。我是做大学,理念阐述的清楚——byhe 学生的学习过程通常由两个阶段组成:第一个阶段是接受教师的“知识传递”,第二个阶段是“知识内化”。在传统的教学模式中,接受教师的“知识传递”是在课堂上进行的,而“知识内化”是在课外通过作业练习完成的。而“翻转课堂”对这一传统模式进行了“翻转”——知识的获得由学生在课下完成,他们通过使用信息技术或者阅读文本教材自行学习,教师可以通过提供短小的视频、对特定的问题进行有针对性的讲解、在线辅导等为学生提供帮助;而“知识内化”则是在课堂上通过互动来完成的,教师通过了解学生的学习困难,给予有效辅导,同时通过组织多主体、多层面的相互交流,促进知识的吸收与内化。这样,课堂这一教学主阵地的功能就发生了改变:它主要不是用来获取知识,而是促进知识的内化和应用。课堂不再是预设的过程,而是生成的过程。 - fenghe

The beauty of unfinished work — The Learner's Way

Posted: July 25, 2015, 7:35 am

Comments:

  • There is a danger in seeking finished perfection in all that we do. There is a risk that our students will focus solely on the attributes that define a finished piece and overlook the importance of the process that leads to it. - Nigel Coutts

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

  • I love this concept!  The focus is on the process of learning.  Doesn't that also help to identify the way we learn as well as the progress of the learning? - Beverly Ozburn

  • The down side of this is that there also has to be some sort of focus on the importance of completing what is started.  Everything might not have to have an end product but some things certainly should have! - Beverly Ozburn

At times it has been deeply admonished and hidden from view. Individuals who failed were to be shunned or punished. At other times failure was to be avoided by setting the bar for success so low that failure was impossible. The result of this movement was that success became meaningless, achievable by all without risk and through little effort.

  • The generation when who were deeply admonished and hidden is older and most are relieved that this is no longer the case.  The generation who were shunned or punished seem to still be a part of the mainstream but most have embraced that this is no longer the case.  The generation who were part of the low expectations with failure impossible seem to be the predominance of the population now and we are seeing that there is no concept of consequences, no motivation toward high achievement, and an attitude of entitlement. - Beverly Ozburn

  • This seems like we are evolving but moving more in a cyclical fashion and thinking more like the early innovators in our country - Jefferson, Franklin, Ford, Bell - We see a need for something and strive to create it - marking our failures as a way of knowing, "well that won't work so lets find something that will." - Beverly Ozburn

A culture that accepts failure as a part of the learning process will need to take time to celebrate the steps taken towards learning as much as it celebrates the finished product.

A digital work of art, of music of writing is never truly finished, it grows and transforms over time. 

  • Transformation from the mindset of this is done, this if finished, this is the final draft to here is where we are at this point but it may be revisited, revised, refined at a later time. - Beverly Ozburn

mistakes are a sign that the learning is not pitched at a level below the needs of the students; if the students are not making mistakes when they engage with new learning the expectation has been set too low.

What must be avoided is a belief that mistakes are to be accepted without an equal emphasis on identifying and understanding their causes.

  • Identify and understand the causes of mistakes so that another attempt can be made at correcting them and progress is made! - Beverly Ozburn

the Truth About Being a Hero - WSJ

Posted: July 23, 2015, 3:07 pm

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

We all want to be special, to stand out; there's nothing wrong with this. The irony is that every human being is special to start with, because we're unique to start with.

n the military I could exercise the power of being automatically respected because of the medals on my chest, not because I had done anything right at the moment to earn that respect.

I knew many Marines had done brave deeds that no one saw and for which they got no medals at all.

"A lot of people have done a lot more and gotten a lot less, and a lot of people have done a lot less and gotten a lot more."

I got my medals, in part, because I did brave acts, but also, in part, because the kids liked me and they spent time writing better eyewitness accounts than they would have written if they hadn't liked me

The only people who will ever know the value of the ribbons on their chests are the people wearing them—and even they can fool themselves, in both directions.

he whole assault ground to a halt, except for one kid named Niemi, who had sprinted forward when we came under the intense fire and disappeared up in front of us somewhere.

alking to a group of us about when it was a platoon leader earned his pay. I knew, floating above that mess, that now that time had come. If I didn't get up and lead, we'd get wiped.

I'm most proud of is that I simply stood up, in the middle of all that flying metal, and started up the hill all by myself.

I did it for the right reasons.

At this point I saw the missing kid, Niemi, pop his head up. He sprinted across the open top of the hill, all alone.

He was a black kid, all tangled up in black-power politics, almost always angry and sullen. A troublemaker. Yet here he was, most of his body naked with only flapping rags left of his jungle utilities, begging for a rifle when he had a perfect excuse to just bury his head in the clay and quit. I gave him mine. I still had a pistol. He grabbed the rifle, stood up to his full height, fully exposing himself to all the fire, and simply blasted an entire magazine at the two soldiers in front of us, killing both of them. He then went charging into the fight, leaving me stunned for a moment. Why? Who was he doing this for? What is this thing in young men? We were beyond ourselves, beyond politics, beyond good and evil. This was transcendence.

Crashing out of the clouds into this confusion came a flaming, smoking twin-rotor CH-46 helicopter.

I saw Niemi pop into sight again. He sprinted to the downed chopper.

the only thing he could think to do was sprint across the open hilltop to see if he could find a place from which he could lay down fire to protect them.

Niemi got a Navy Cross.

I got a Navy Cross.

hing.

It was just about that time I got knocked out and blinded by a hand grenade. I came to, groggy.

hen a kid I knew from Second Platoon, mainly because of his bad reputation, threw himself down beside me, half his clothes blown away. He was begging people for a rifle. His had been blown out of his hands.

Highlights and Sticky Notes:

ou toggle over to check your phone during even the smallest pause in real life. You feel those phantom vibrations even when no one is texting you. You have trouble concentrating for long periods.
  • This is a connection for me to the technology and devices article we read today and did a quotation mingle around during our Disciplinary Literacy Institute. No kidding that we get a shot of dopamine or 'high' when our phone goes ding, or it vibrates.  - Sharin Tebo

Online life is so delicious

You live in a state of perpetual anticipation because the next social encounter is just a second way.

xpert online gamers have a great capacity for short-term memory, to process multiple objects simultaneously, to switch flexibly between tasks and to quickly process rapidly presented information.

Fluid intelligence

Research at the University of Oslo and elsewhere suggests that people read a printed page differently than they read off a screen. They are more linear, more intentional, less likely to multitask or browse for keywords.

Crystallized intelligence

Crystallized intelligence accumulates over the years and leads ultimately to understanding and wisdom.
  • So maybe this kind of intelligence, then, is the "learning is a consequence of thinking"? - Sharin Tebo
