How Improving Student Feedback and Teaching Data Science Restored Our Classroom Culture

Edsurge

The learning environment was tense, my students were angsty and I didn't have the information or strategies to make it better. Little did I know that by 2019 I would find a way to apply the data science strategies I learned as a geologist to bring joy and engagement back to my classroom. I came away from the institute eager to try inquiry-based instruction in my class during the 2015-16 school year.

We Know SEL Skills Are Important, So How the Heck Do We Measure Them?

Edsurge

SEL and MESH competencies. Whatever you call them, a growing body of research suggests these non-academic, social-emotional competencies deserve our attention. Studies have linked social-emotional learning (SEL) programs with improved focus, stronger relationships, lower anxiety and higher test scores. Even American political parties, at-odds about everything, agree SEL competencies play a vital role in the economic success of today’s students. Soft skills.

What a Summer Prototype Taught Us About Measuring Quality in an Unbundled Education System

Edsurge

In the summer of 2016, a community of educators, research design partners, and over 150 teens and young adults in Colorado engaged in a bold experiment to rethink how quality and impact might be measured in a modernized system of learning. In this relatively small, short-cycle prototype, the lessons we learned were significant. Why focus outside of formal learning time for our design work? Framework for the Future of Learning.

How State Reform in New Hampshire Led to Teacher Autonomy

Edsurge

This story is part of a series from EdSurge Research on how schools are redefining student success using MyWays , a framework created by Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC). The state of New Hampshire has been gradually shifting toward competency-based education (CBE) for two decades. Two recent state initiatives are defining a set of non academic work habits that contribute to student success , and developing a statewide performance-based assessment system.
