“These YouTube videos featured in this post by Nicky Mohan encourage us to shift our thinking in current teaching methodology by comparing two different instruction styles—one we know very well, and the other we are getting to know better all the time. I urge you to take the time to watch both of them if you can ... very informative and thought-provoking.”
Here are a couple of interesting YouTube videos from the ITCPublications user channel that show two different approaches to teaching, learning, and assessment. The first video shows a traditional teacher-centered approach, and the second video shows how you can use progressive withdrawal to gradually shift the burden of responsibility for the learning from the teacher, where it traditionally is, to the student where it belongs. The second video is a classic demonstration of how you can teach required content and 21st-century higher order thinking skills (in this case, Bloom’s Taxonomy) at the same time, as outlined in our book Literacy Is Not Enough.
