Posted: Deep Learning for Students #edchat #edreform#parenting

These skills and mindsets — collectively known as Deeper Learning — can only be built through long-term practice in classrooms where students work together on significant projects.
perhaps if we move past the concept of classrooms... who's together in a space - per choice. most of our  problem - i'm thinking - we're waiting till we get to choose - the gatherings - to do the deep learning..

The Most Efficient Die Early…

Eliminating all errors makes it hard to compete in the trial-and-error process that's required for a company to adjust, because there are no trials without errors. Clayton Christensen has nicely described how the very things that made a company successful, including its efficiency, can also cause it to become obsolete when it's unable to adapt to disruptive change.

Debut of @LCatalytics in linear algebra today. This screenshot shows why I like peer instruction so

is this sarcasm?
how is this peer instruction..?

this is more (in my perception right now) like what denise pope reports on - that 95% of students admit to cheating (up from 75%) - but they aren't calling it cheating - they're calling it survival.

the question is crazy to begin with - mathematically speaking, the fact that now 90% are now getting a multiple choice question right - means very little - on the surface.

i hope it's sarcasm.

"In learning walks, bias is always inflationary" says John Antonetti chatting with asst
interesting noticings on time gaps...

either we get this burning curiosity/passion and mandate all others to do it.. or others get the same passion and we don't connect for a while..
that time period causes our burning to die out, we get distracted/disheartened ..

why be app so important.. 3 yrs.. too long.. what if ... no training needed.. just everyone in a city free 100%. google time. today.

Day 2: Teachers meet for approximately 45 minutes during planning time. They are introduced to a new concept, given a tool which models that concept, and are expected to apply that tool at least once before the next session and to bring evidence of its effectiveness. In Day 2 of the next block, teachers present their experiment and its results.

oh my.

The Importance Of Reflection In
Consider John Dewey’s famous quote “We don’t learn from experience. We learn from reflecting on experience.” Reformers like Mr. Dewey have been talking about the importance of reflection in the learning process since the 1930’s. For a more contemporary spin, consider the work of Dr. Bobb Darnell and his website  Darnell describes the learning process as “Input-Process-Output-Reflect” and notes that without reflection, it is very difficult to have genuine learning

If the goal is not merely coverage but actual learning, than reflection is no longer optional – it’s an essential piece to transition a classroom from “covering material” to being “focused on learning”.

oh my. so key and then... moving a classroom...
For some silly reason it’s not cool to talk about “reflecting”. It’s difficult for teachers, who as a result of their position as the “distributor of knowledge” in the mind of most students and parents, feel obligated to be “right” all the time. This is of course, absurd. However, because of this need to be right we get very defensive and struggle to admit when we’re wr

There’s something about the word “reflection” that seems to make teachers uncomfortable. Maybe because it’s too “touchy, feely” for some. Maybe it’s because it requires adults to show humility, and admit they can improve. Regardless, if we’re not willing to practice it ourselves and model it for our students, how can we ever hope to see them reflect on their own mistakes

or perhaps teachers like students.. have time sucked out of them
