Transcript of Untitled Prezi

I agree...
That we need to promote creativity in the classroom
That we need a better way to assess these standards that we have set
and that technology is a great tool to use in the classroom to help students think outside the box and broaden their knowledge. Pros However, I think there are different ways we could go about implementing these changes while still holding true to certain aspects of the classroom that are still effective for our students. Cons Both in the ways that classrooms are constructed, and in the instruction used to teach the students. Innovations Hasn’t anything changed?
Are students today different from their parents?
Do they come to school with different capabilities and interests for learning than previous generations?
If they are different, can we still instruct them in the same way we instructed their parents? Impact on
Students and Staff 1. Facilities designs have been shown to have an impact on learning
2. These designs have been shown to have an impact on students and others who work in the school
3. There have been few innovations in school facilities design. Designing New Learning Environments to Support 21st Century Skills A summary and reflection Personal Reflection Summary By: Jessica Truman Three Emerging Themes Facilities Impact Learning Students learn best when they can do the work, we need to move away from the "telling/ lecturing model.
No longer a debate over standards, but the way students learn best.
We don't need more "classrooms," we need more focused work, collaborative work, and hands-on project environments. What needs to be changed? •New standards often stress creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, etc, however, few curricula bring these standards to life as learning outcomes, and few countries assess them.
•NTF, defines standards-focused PBL as “a systematic teaching method that engages students in learning knowledge and skills through an extended inquiry process structured around complex, authentic questions and carefully designed products and tasks”
In PBL, by making the assessment criteria clear, students will be able to make their own decisions as to how well they wish to preform in the classroom. Changes to Classrooms Classrooms are set up to facilitate project teams, seminars, or workshops while still allowing space for other students to work
"Each design seeks to provide spaces for individual work, small-group work, large-group work, lectures, presentations, breakouts, and whole-school or cluster meetings."
Architecturally there is a lot of glass to make learning visible to other students, teachers, parents, and administration. Shift in Teaching Style " The ongoing trend towards longer lessons and interdisciplinary coursework reduces the need for student movement and increased effective use of spaces to allow for a variety of teaching and learning styles.
The best 21st century classrooms provide every student with a computer.
This is not enough however because teachers need to be trained to utilize the new technology effectively as to not reinforce the teacher-directed whole-group instruction style. Pros and Cons Instead of gearing our whole curriculum toward technology and more individualized work we could... Create standards that mandate a certain number of hours spent doing different types of learning, or standards specifically created for PBL
Spend more time training our current and future teachers effective methods to integrating these skills into the classroom.
Focus on more prominent problems in schools that don't even have class computers, before worrying about computers for every student.
Use discussion based instruction to engage students into their individual learning.
Stress the importance of technology and its advantages, while also teaching students to be cautious of some of the problems and dangers it can cause. Overall, I think there are just some things you cannot learn from a computer screen, and I think it is more effective for the students to learn together and bounce ideas off one another, than having them all work at their own pace.
