Student-Centric Education“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it bywhat amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover withaccuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.”-Plato1.

http://www.readingrockets.org/article/263/How?According to Carol Ann Tomlinson, educators can vary at least four classroomelements to apply the differentiated instruction style 1. Content 2. Process 3. Product + ongoing assessment + flexible grouping 4. Environment #edweb
The Flipped ClassroomA classroom model in which student comprehension is done at home, freeing upclass time for increased teacher-student interaction and small group or individualwork.It’s NOT about the videos; it’s about the interactive environment and meaningfullearning activities that take place in the classroom. #edweb
How?There is no silver bullet, but we consistently find that when used appropriately,technology can enable teachers to lead differentiated and interactive classrooms.When teachers have real-time data and a clear understanding of every childs needs,they can use their precious classroom time more effectively and flexibly. Whenstudents are learning at a pace and level appropriate to their individual needs, theyare less likely to disengage or act up.-Salman Khan, founder of Khan Academy #edweb
This year, our core biochemistry course at Stanford Medical School was redesigned following this model; rather than a standard lecture-based format, the instructors provided short online presentations. Class time was used for interactive discussions of clinical vignettes highlighting the biochemical bases of various diseases. The proportion of student course reviews that were positive increased substantially from the previous year. And the percentage of students who attended class shot up from about 30% to 80% — even though class attendance was optional Lecture Halls without Lectures — A Proposal for Medical Education by Charles G.

When students have multiple choices in ways todemonstrate their knowledge, the evidence of theirlearning is more accurate. We wanted the students toactually become the experts through the learningprocess. This assessment isnt just a fancy term for apresentation at the end of a unit. To actually engagein an authentic celebration is to witness a true displayof student understanding.New Horizonshttp://education.jhu.edu/newhorizons/strategies/topics/Assessment%20Alternatives/meyer_glock.htm

Google’s 20% Project20% of workweek is spent on projects and interest of interest to Googleemployees.Katherine von Jan: “Pursue Passion: Demand Google’s 20% Time atSchool”“…the work outside of the expected, commissioned work produces the most creative,awesome discoveries, and some silly ones that are just fun by-products of the passion-drivenjourney. Commissioned work just delivers expected, rote outcomes.What do we expect from students? It seems schools expect them to demonstrate what wealready know -- recite dates and complete calculations that could be done on a computer --rather then create new knowledge. Institutions fill our brains with what is known.” AJ Juliani: @ajjuliani #edweb
