10-Rep Learning ~ Teague's Tech Treks

Learning Technology & Tech Observations by Dr. Helen Teague


Weekend Ed. Quote ~ January 28

This weekend, the Education quote arrives from the careful reading of one of my Engineering graduate students.

“A design context provides learners with an opportunity to be generative, reflective, and adaptive in their thinking as they engage in activities of planning, making, and evaluating a device, system or process.” (Brophy, et al., 2008, p.371)

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.”

EDP 5-12 model EDP K-4















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! 



Currently in development and Beta text by the company – https://www.thesnowbot.com/pages/become-a-beta-tester

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:

Recite …and…

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.

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.
