  • Different ways of thinking about learning Rosemary Hipkins, NZCER

     

    I love reading short snippets of gold and this paper (first in a series of papers from NCZER that discusses the challenges of future focused learning) provides a summary of ideas about learning itself - in six short pages. Discussions around what we think about know about learning are always vital, on-going conversations to have. Here are some of my own summaries on this paper.

    Learning as a cognitive activity – beyond simply adding new concepts and knowledge to the known. Learning involves metacognition, deeper thinking, analysis and application. It’s more about what we do with the knowledge, rather than an emphasis on knowledge retention itself.

    The experiential nature of learning – thinking and learning processes are directly related to experiences, involving the whole body and not just the brain. Students bring a wide variety of experiences with them to school, not all on the ‘same level playing field’. This affects how we teach, what we teach and how we assess learning.

    Learning as a social activity – learning involves interaction. Learners bring a variety of experiences and diverse thinking with them, which inevitably enriches learning – beyond the view that learning is an individual cognitive process. The other skills needed to engage successfully socially, are also paramount in learning. Having a safe, inclusive, culturally responsive learning environment is vital.

    Motivation as a key enabler – learners have to want to learn, they can see the value of learning and have the dispositions to learn. The power of 'learning to learn' conversations with students, helps them understand what makes for good learning. They can then use this knowledge to further develop dispositions needed for successful learning.

    Personalising learningPersonalising learning – learning needs to personalised and not ‘one size fits all’ or standardised. "What changes most is the understanding of opportunities to learn.” (p 6) I'd also add what conversations, resources and tools can be used for students to gain accessibility and ownership of learning.

    All of this understanding about learning itself can challenge our beliefs and practices in terms of:

    • Enabling conditions (eg; pedagogy)
    • What should be learned (eg; curriculum)
    • What evidence of learning looks like (eg; assessment)

    http://www.nzcer.org.nz/research/publications/different-ways-thinking-about-learning

     

    Envision a classroom, possibly your own. What resonates for you here? How are some of these understandings reflected in the classroom you visualise? You may even have a photo to exemplify this.

  • Safer Internet Day logo“Let’s create a better internet together” is the slogan for the global celebration today, which is organised by NetSafe.

    Safer Internet Day encourages us to think about our role in developing a safer and more responsible online experience for children and young people. 

    The Enabling e-Learning website and community have resources for teachers and school leaders to use. These are designed to support with increasing student, parent, and teacher understanding of being a responsible digital citizen. 

    A digital citizen understands the rights and responsibilities of inhabiting cyberspace.

    What does NetSafe say?

    NetSafe defines a digital citizen as someone who:

    • is a confident and capable user of ICT
    • uses technologies to participate in educational, cultural, and economic activities
    • uses and develops critical thinking skills in cyberspace
    • is literate in the language, symbols, and texts of digital technologies
    • is aware of ICT challenges and can manage them effectively
    • uses ICT to relate to others in positive, meaningful ways
    • demonstrates honesty and integrity and ethical behaviour in their use of ICT
    • respects the concepts of privacy and freedom of speech in a digital world
    • contributes and actively promotes the values of digital citizenship.

    Sean Lyons, Chief Technology Officer from NetSafe, discusses their definition of digital citizenship and how it fits into the National Curriculum.

    What are other schools doing?

     
    Albany Senior High School deputy principal Miranda Makin describes how digital citizenship is embedded within classroom practice so students understand and make safe and informed choices when accessing and sharing information on the Internet. St Hilda's Collegiate keep their Internet as open as possible and manage its usage by educating their students. With ultra-fast broadband, staff and students are using the Internet constantly to both upload and download.
