Understanding the true nature of science — The Learner's Way

Posted: April 23, 2017, 6:13 am

Comments:

  • As thousands take to the streets as part of a global 'March for Science’ it is worth considering the significant role that education has to play. What are the messages we need to send our students about science and what role have schools played in creating the current climate? Now seems like the time to pause and reflect on the place of science in our community and our schools. - Nigel Coutts

Shifting from awareness to action — The Learner's Way

Posted: April 23, 2017, 4:38 am

Comments:

  • The evidence is mounting and the narrative around education is shifting towards a story centred on long-life skills, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication. Success in the future seems to be connected closely to one’s capacity to innovate, to problem find and to make strategic decisions when confronted by unique situations for which we have not been specifically prepared.  - Nigel Coutts

  • ideas y recursos para crear un portafolio de aprendizaje - Chema Falcó
  • Over the last year, I've been working on a committee in my school district to think about the role that digital portfolios can play in helping students to document their learning. I LOVE that our district is committed to the idea of portfolios simply because they promote more reflective learners and help our schools to move from a culture of grading to a culture of feedback. - Kimberly DeSandre

Quizlet has become a great teaching tool that I have used for the past few years. I wrote this post a little while ago about easily adding images to Quizlet sets. For younger students, I have found a fun and easy way to use Quizlet flashcards plus a bingo tool for fun and effective review for all topics and subjects. This will even work for middle and high school students.
