NOW WHAT

Page history last edited by fran toomey 2 years, 6 months ago

YOU HAVE LOTS OF CHOICES!     

 

Along the way, we hope you will find three things especially helpful:  (1) Using Learning Stories as a problem solving metastrategy, (2) Using the Principles of Teaching (SEAL) and Learning (MMMM), and (3) Making Choices from this Now What page that work best for your students in your context.

 

  HERE ARE SOME CHOICES YOU MIGHT TRY. WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO EXPERIMENT! 

LEARNER STORIES 

Learners as Problem Solvers

Skim through the stories listed.  Find ones that are comparable to the challenges your students face.  

Learning Stories Chart for Problem Solving

ACTIVITIES FOLDER

 A good place to start introducting the idea of "Learning How to Learn" is with whole class activities.  The more engaging and personalized the activities, the more likely students are to get interested in how they learn, how to learn.

TEACHER TALK 

Teachers as Problem Solvers

Here are some stories that teachers have "contributed."  Teachers talk about the challenges their students face and what they are doing to meet those challenges.  We hope you will add some stories, too.

 

STEP BY STEP 

Some teachers like a step by step plan;

so we've suggested a teaching sequence

for teachers who can create some

regular slots for "Learning How to Learn"

workshops.

Commitment and Players

A Teaching Sequence

Formative Assessment

JUMP IN 

Start anywhere that makes sense in your context.  Stay with that topic as long as you like.  Then, try another topic.   Or start with a category (Activities, Teacher Talk, etc.) and explore that until you feel you have maximized it.  Ideally, you will find ways to integrate these topics/ideas into your classroom on a regular basis.

GAMES & VIDEOS 

We will start a collection of problem solving games and videos. 

Some games and videos seem just right to illustrate one or more of the 7 P.O.R.T.A.L.S. Skills.  So, we've included those and will continue to add them.

 

STRATEGIES FOLDER

These P.O.R.T.A.L.S. strategies come from a variety of sources, including some we created and used in our work with middle and high school students.

A good place to start with each of the strategies is with a whole class activity.

PRINCIPLES/PHILOSOPHIES

We've included quotes from a variety of sources in education, psychology, professional development,  elearning, higher education and business. See Frameworks  and Rationale.  We think these reflect the information and ideas we've tried to communicate in this Explorience "Learning How to Learn" wiki.
