Personal Knowledge Mastery

Posted: December 7, 2016, 1:38 pm


  • Personal Knowledge Mastery

    PKM is a set of processes, individually constructed, to help each of us make sense of our world, work more effectively, and contribute to society. PKM means taking control of your professional development, and staying connected in the network era, whether you are an employee, self-employed, or between jobs.

    Personal – according to one’s abilities, interests & motivation.
    (not directed by external forces)
    Knowledge – understanding information and experience in order to act upon it.
    (know what, know who, know how)
    Mastery – the journey from apprentice to disciplined sense-maker and knowledge catalyst.
    (masters do not need to be managed) - Jeff Andersen

Digitale ferdigheter

Posted: December 4, 2016, 1:24 pm


  • Utvikling av digitale ferdigheter innebærer å lære seg å bruke digitale verktøy, medier og ressurser. Videre innebærer det å benytte digitale verktøy, medier og ressurser til å tilegne seg faglig kunnskap og til å uttrykke egen kompetanse. I dette ligger det også en økende grad av selvstendighet og dømmekraft i valg og bruk av digitale verktøy, medier og ressurser ut fra bruksområdet. - Vivian Worley

Learning vs Work in a Culture of Thinking — The Learner's Way

Posted: December 4, 2016, 8:25 am


  • Earlier this year a group of teachers I work with explored the ‘Eight Cultural Forces’ identified by Ron Ritchhart of Harvard’s Project Zero. In doing so we decided to focus on our use of the term learning instead of the word work. Our goal was to bring our language choices into the spotlight and explore how a more deliberate focus on learning might alter the culture of our classrooms. Two terms later this focus persists and it is worth reflecting on the effect that this has had. - Nigel Coutts

Circuitboard Education

Posted: December 2, 2016, 12:39 pm


  • We are excited to announce the launch of the educational consulting partnership Circuitboard Education, LLC at CircuitboardEducation.com . Circuitboard Education, CBE, is a consulting and design team devoted to helping educators incorporate both analog and digital games into their classrooms. Our belief is that games provide sublime yet unexplored opportunities to help students develop a suite of critical skills while still delivering content for a 21st century pedagogy. Creating lessons and projects around any kind of game or technology requires time and patience, two luxuries that teachers do not have. We are a team that takes the time and guesswork out of games in order to help teachers and schools design, refine and implement curricula around games and digital technologies.

    Our partnership consists of Lyn Lord, a high-school educator with over 20 years of classroom experience,Felix Ackerman, a former student of Lyn’s and an analytical, new-media specialist, and Dr. Kes Schroer, an instructional design specialist at Dartmouth College. Together we have experience taking projects from the spark of an idea to a smooth classroom experience. We look forward to using our knowledge and experience to improve your classroom experience for you and your students!

    Please take a look and contact us to give any feedback at circuitboardeducation@gmail.com

    We greatly appreciate it! This is not just a business, this is a movement!

Study finds cash and coins help engage primary maths students

Posted: November 30, 2016, 9:44 pm


  • "Primary school students are more likely to understand and engage with maths if classes use real money and real-life projects, according to a Western Sydney University pilot study.
    The findings come as Australian students lag behind other countries in maths, with Year 4 students dropping from 18th to 28th out of 49 countries in year 4 maths in the latest Trends in International Mathematics and Science study." - Martin Burrett
