DML 2010 day 2 session 3: participatory learning in school: square peg round hole

Notes from a presentation I attended on participatory learning in school: Square peg round hole

Was impressed with the work of Margaret Weigel of project zero at Harvard University. She has just finished a major piece of research with teachers who have more than 10 years of school experience to examine attitudes and roadblocks to participatory learning in school. She identified the 3 biggest roadblocks: –

1. rate of tech change

2. Ceding control to students

3. Push back from institution

Erin Reilly of USC described a pilot study strategy guide for teachers re ELA participatory curriculum that she had piloted in 7 schools
