Valley Vista Elementary Students Have a Lot of S.O.L.E. Valley Vista Elementary Students Have a Lot of S.O.L.E.
Staff members at Valley Vista are using a new form of instruction in their classrooms, and it is making quite a difference with student involvement and excitement in their learning. S.O.L.E., which stands for Self-Organized Learning Environment, gets students engaged in their learning. Both teachers and students shared their experiences at the April 10 North Royalton Board of Education meeting. It incorporates collaboration, critical thinking, communication, and creativity. These are skills that future employers are looking for in college graduates today. Problem solving skills are appropriate for all future careers and the real life experiences ahead. The idea behind using S.O.L.E. is to use higher levels of cognitive ability including creativity, evaluating, analyzing, and applying. It requires students to work together and, at times, think outside of the box to solve problems and analyze their work rather than simply memorizing data. Students are presented an analytical question, and they then work in groups using the Internet, Chromebooks, and one another to investigate and then report back to their classmates.
