How does interdependence build citizenship?
How many times have we heard that children must be independent to establish confidence and enjoy success in life? Educators often consider independence as the culmination of personal development. However, we need to extend the paradigm to a state of interdependence where children begin to realize that they are a connected and significant part of the network of their family, community, and ultimately the world.
What barriers exist between the learner and the learning?
Of the many complexities facing schools in 2016, the topic of wellness or well-being is one that educators look to governments, clinicians, researchers or outside agencies to provide direction on how to support students through difficult times while not straying beyond what is appropriate within the scope of a school. Laws, standards, practices and guidelines, while useful in defining roles and responsibilities in broad contexts, are not prescriptive and, therefore, when it comes down to case-by-case considerations, it is the teachers and administrator in a school who must interpret these documents and make decisions that weigh what is in the best interests of the student as well as the school community.
How does the new BC curriculum embrace student-centred learning?
According to Dr. Bruce Bearisto, Adjunct Professor in the Department of Education at Simon Fraser University, the most important innovation the new BC curriculum offers is its focus on personalization. An aspect of student-centred learning, personalized learning strives to address each student’s needs, preferences, strengths, interests, and aspirations as part of a movement designed to promote greater student accountability and engagement in the classroom. Bearisto maintains that student-centred learning will have a profound impact on British Columbia’s schools for years to come.
What value does a pencil have in our technology-rich world?
As the future takes shape, one cannot ignore the disruptive role of technology, transforming the way we live, learn and interact with others. Access to technology is becoming commonplace in elementary classrooms across the globe. The benefits of this tool are extensive, allowing access to information and tools that enrich and enhance student learning. However, one may wonder about the place of long standing tools such as the pencil? Is there a place for such tools in today’s modernized classroom?
