How do you give student a voice in the learning process and power over their learning? According to the work conducted by Bloom, students can reach a high level of achievement if teachers provide the time, resources, environment and appropriate learning conditions to master curriculum goals. Making lessons authentic and researched-based, while allowing students choices, opportunities for collaborating, and providing continuous feedback can be a start in moving toward self-motivated higher order thinkers. This month’s classroom challenge will explore myHistro, a tool that can be used to impact learning by challenging students to discriminate information, receive and respond to feedback, and dig deeper to master content.
