Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 21

“My philosophy of education is the basic principle upon which my life has been built – that is the three-fold training of head, hand, heart. I believe in a rounded education with a belief in the dignity and refinement of labor – in doing well whatever task is assigned to me. A belief in a spiritual undergirting [sic] of all my efforts and a clear, sane mental development.” 
~Mary McLeod Bethune, (1875-1955)

EDP Cycle – Crowdsourcing the Beta Test!

The EDP Cycle remains relevant! There is one phase of the grade 5-12 EDP cycle that every classroom participant can relate to, whether student or teacher, and that is “Build a model or Prototype.” In the K-4 EDP Cycle, this component is labeled “Evaluate.”

The “Build a Model or Prototype/Evaluate phase is continuously being applied in business using the word Beta test. Here is an example from current business news that fits with all of the snow of the Winter season. 

The Snowbot is a square robot that shovels snow! Here it is in action!

STEM/STEAM Application:
Have you ever participated in a Beta test?  It might be a fun class activity to show the Snowbot videos to Students who would serve in the role of Focus Group participants! What do you think about this and/or what other EDP applications come to mind when viewing the Snowbot videos?

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 14, 2022

“The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community. The aftermath of nonviolence is redemption. The aftermath of nonviolence is reconciliation. The aftermath of violence is emptiness and bitterness.”
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Birth of a Nation speech, 1957.

“The aftermath of nonviolence is the creation of the beloved community, so that when the battle’s over, a new relationship comes into being between the oppressed and the oppressor. …“The way of acquiescence leads to moral and spiritual suicide. The way of violence leads to bitterness in the survivors and brutality in the destroyers. But, the way of non-violence leads to redemption and the creation of the beloved community.” ~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,1959, Palm Sunday Sermon on Mohandas K. Gandhi

SQ4R – Learning Strategy for Adult Learning Andragogy

The SQ4R active learning strategy and reading system provides scaffolding for textbook reading and taking notes.

The letters in theSQ4R acronym stand for five steps:

Survey
Question
Read
Reflect
Recite …and…
Review

Some versions change words four and five for the key words: Survey, Question, Read, Respond, Record, and Review.

These key words will help all students, but especially busy graduate students learn more from textbook reading with better preparation for assignments, posts, and quizzes. SQ5R also helps identify gaps in understanding, which is very helpful for online learning, since most of the initial concept acquisition is completed during solitary study.

The most effective way to implement SQ4R is to think of Before Reading, During Reading, and After Reading. 

SQ4R

Image Link: http://mhcedls.weebly.com/sq4r.html

Let’s go granular with the five components.

Survey: Scan the titles and subtitles. Study the pictures, charts, or graphs.Read the chapter preface,summary and any chapter questions.

Question: Turn each title, section title, and the first sentence of every paragraph into a question

Read: Read only one section at a time and look to answer the questions that you created.

Reflect: Connect what you’ve read to the Discussion Forum prompts and the assignment instructions. Also, consider connections to your professional practice. 

Recite/Record: Speak out loud the questions you created and the answers you’ve found. Read outloud the bolded or emphasized portions of the text. My daughter used to use the record feature on her iPhone to record important components of the readings and her impressions. 

Review: Keep notes out and visible for quick review. Several students have shared that they take a photo of their notes with their mobile phone and/or take a screenshot of digital notes. Many students have shared that they email their notes to their work email address so they can see them at work. Look at notes first before each new study session.

Weekend Ed. Quote~ January 7, 2022

[Instructional, Transformational] Coaching is an embedded support that attempts to respond to student and teacher needs in ongoing, consistent, dedicated ways. The likelihood of using new learning and sharing responsibility rises when colleagues, guided by a coach, work together and hold each other accountable for improvied teaching and learning.” ~Elena Aguilar, The Art of Coaching. p. 9.

Weekend Ed. Quote ~ December 17

“There’s a front-loaded period of a lot of faiture and struggle that has to occur, a learning curve. It’s like an experience curve, really. And then at a certain point I know it’s going to tip and I’ll be in a totally different spot.”
~Kyle Maynard, author of the book No Excuses, as quoted in Daymond John’s book, Rise and Grind: Out-Perform, Out-Work, and Out-Hustle Your Way to a More Successful and Rewarding Life, pg. 41

Quantifying Instructional Practices: an informal timeline

For my graduate students….

The innovative work of John Hattie first in Visible Learning and next in The distance learning playbook, grades K-12: Teaching for engagement and impact in any setting, is the quantifying of instructional practices, especially involving a technological affordance.

The scope of the work of quantifying innovative instructional practices seemed stalled in the 1960’s -1970’s. In 1962, Dr. Everett Rogers published a groundbreaking book, Diffusion of Innovation, which addressed how ideas are transmitted through communication channels. Now in its fifth reprinting, Diffusion of Innovation is often linked with technological innovations and advances. During the 1970’s the work of Hall, Loucks, Rutherford, and Newlove produced a framework called “Levels of Use of the Innovation: A Framework for Analyzing Innovation Adoption,” addressed innovative processes.

But the Hattie team’s work guides educators (and all who instruct) in a quantitative pathway for the use of best practices. This is one of the many reasons, why I gently guide (i.e. push) for all of us to read and include the course textbook, which, as you will note is in its first edition.

Glad to learn along with you all and have the opportunity to provide an informal timeline!
