Designing learning experiences to prepare students to be future ready with competencies to solve complex problems, communicate effectively, collaborate with others and create out-of-the-box ideas is the future of teaching and learning.
Learning Architects use eight design principles and a blueprint for deeper learning to renovate the learning experience for their students while modernizing instructional practices that engage students in meaningful work.
Eight Design Principles for Learning Architects:
Learning Goals and Success Criteria
Compelling Content and Product
Authentic Tools and Resources
Focus on Literacy
Feedback for Learning
8 Design Principles
+ 4-Part Blueprint for Deeper Learning
= Endless Possibilities
Foundation for Learning
Identify Focus Standards and the cognitive process (student thinking) and demand (student working) required for future-ready learning. Communicate learning goals and success criteria to students to empower them to partner in the learning process.
Frame the Problem
Design real-world problems, challenges, or issues that require students to use problem-solving skills to create solutions. With related performance tasks that scaffold in complexity, students are immersed in authentic application of knowledge and competencies,required to be future ready.
Construction of Knowledge
Intentionally plan instruction that empowers students to think outside of the box and innovate for the purpose of creating meaningful products and performances. Creating learning environments that are engaging and collaborative with a learning design that views students as partners results in deeper learning.
Inspection of Results
Providing feedback to students about their growth and where they need to focus their continued learning is critical. Through use of a single-point rubric for each task, students are provided meaningful and timely feedback to help them monitor progress toward their learning goals. Teachers are also to adjust instruction and provide personalized support to students.
