TEACH STUDENTS THESE 4 SKILLS TO START THE YEAR OFF RIGHT

Edtech leader Alan November shared the following tips for setting the tone for powerful, engaging, and self-directed learning in a recent KQED Mindshift report by Katrina Schwartz:

1. Power Researching: Instead of giving students the information, teach them how to find it.

2. Meaningful Contributions: Students are motivated and work hard when they have such opportunities. In Eric Marcos’s class, for example, students make math videos to help their peers, in their class and around the world, understand concepts.

3. Let Students Work on Something They’re Passionate About and present their project at the end of the year. Thrively is a great tool to help students identify passions and start thinking about projects.

4. Show Students How You Learn: Share how you learn (e.g., online learning network, bookmarking site, following a hashtag) and help students figure out ways to build their own methods.
