K-12 education is an innovative learning technique being adopted by several leading schools, college and University. This method of learning puts more emphasis on thinking and reaching own conclusions over conventional learning tactics. Learning is actually a process of transferring knowledge. There are actually three levels involved in the act of learning-namely, the thinking and executing of ideas.Many teachers erroneously believe that giving assignments or worksheets are learning opportunities.

As a long-time music teacher and instructional technology coach, modeling has been key to my work for over a decade. The concept of gradual release of responsibility is second nature to me when working with students in grades K-12, but in my new role teaching graduate students in an education technology program, I am struggling to model so many of the practices I expect these teachers to use in their own classrooms.
