Are You a Deep Learner?
A Fourth Grade Introduction to Deep Learning
Are you a deep learner? As I embark on the Deeper Learning MOOC, I plan to share my learning with Team 15, my fourth grade class, through a number of learning activities. The activities below are a draft of the actions the students and I will embark on during week one. As I interface more with the Deeper Learning MOOC community, I will likely revise the draft in some ways. Let me know if you have thoughts or suggestions. - Ms. Devlin 1/20/14
Do you have the disposition of a deep learner?
Read and think about the learning actions below. How are these actions exemplified in your learning? As a class we’ll discuss this.
Let’s talk about the classroom learning. In what ways do the projects, learning, and classroom events help you to optimize your learning with the behaviors below? What behaviors are regularly part of our classroom learning community, and what behaviors do we miss? How can we make sure that everyone includes these behaviors in his/her learning?
Do you optimize your learning?
The following deeper learning mindset statements are truths about learning. Draw a poster, make a movie, write a song, or create something else that will help you to remember these statements, and allow you to share these powerful truths with other learners.
Do you have a deeper learning mindset?
Let’s educate the school about deeper learning. Each team will choose one strategy or habit and make a learning poster for the whole school so that everyone knows what it takes to be a deep learner. Be prepared to share your poster in a creative way with others (presentation, poetry, song, dance, theater. . . .)
Do you employ effective learning strategies & habits?
