Mindful Learning 2020. Occasional Paper #8
Fluellen, Jerry E., Jr.
Online Submission
A mathematical metaphor for the power teaching prototype, P=fm expresses interactive factors that might characterize 21st Education given President Obama's "Blueprint for Reform: Reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Schools Act." That is the more global perspective taken in this occasional paper. The factors become Ellen Langer's mindfulness theory, Harvard Project Zero Research Center's teaching for understanding framework, information literacy, and Howard Gardner's MI approach as well as his quintet of minds for the future. These factors interact to design and deliver student-centered instruction now and in the decade to come. On the local side, an ethnographic story explores the inquiry what counts as mindful learning? The story takes readers inside a future bent, writing/thinking intensive "Theories of Learning" seminar at Edward Waters College. Factors of the power-teaching prototype, thus, become contextualized in an exploration of mindful learning with students in real time. Based results from the Langer Mindfulness Scale, research papers on new paradigm perspectives about learning and GRE-like final written examinations, most students demonstrated mindful learning.
