The area of schools as storytellers and documenters of institutional memory is fascinating to me.
I read the book The Diary of Anne Frank as an eleven year old and was inspired to begin writing my own diary, which I have continued for over 30 years.
Below you will see a slide deck, I shared with an Elementary School during a webinar a few weeks ago addressing challenges and examples of globally connected learning.
The new literacies and new media require of each one of us the capacity to stay constantly up to date.
Here are my top five “Mistakes” (in no particular order) which I see, read and hear about as I travel the world to learn and work with schools, teachers and students:
How do we make learning visible to others, so we can share, collaborate and improving how we teach and learn?
It was interesting to see that I already had a vision of documenting and sharing since the beginning.
My vote for the most significant classroom innovation is the process of being able to “learn how to learn”.
This post is a documentation of a Twitter conversation and a Skype call and our reflection of authentic assessment of these 9/10 year olds in the area of modern skills and literacies.
As I am trying to make 21st century, modern, contemporary or “now” learning visible, it seemed a natural step to point out “Modern” or “Now” Learning Routines.
I will be working with a small cohort of educators to coach them in” learning how to learn”, the “now” literacies, documenting for learning and peer coaching.
Over the past few years, I had many conversations with colleagues and teacher friends what it would be like to start, build, run and work at our own school.
After my sketchnoting workshop at Miami Device, I was asked to record my process of CREATING the sketchnotes.
