Prescription for Learning

Strengthening Curriculum using the Internet

Practice
previous page next page

In Richard Murnane's book (1996) "Teaching the New Basic Skills", he lists three skill sets students need to be competitive for today's job:

  1. Hard skills (math, reading, and problem-solving skills)
  2. Soft skills (the ability to work in a group and make effective oral and written presentations)
  3. The ability to use a personal computer (can carry out routine tasks such as word processing, data management, and creating multi-media presentations)

In order to accomplish these steps, the following learning situations should be practiced:

  • Students have ownership of their learning
  • Teacher is “guide-on-the-side”
  • Social, collaborative activities with much discussion and interaction

As students begin the task of working on the activity(s) you've assigned, create a learning environment that supports this kind of thinking and participation.
