Kids Share Their Thoughts on Student Engagement - Edutopia | 21 century education | Scoop.it

"A while back, I was asked, "What engages students?" Sure, I could respond, sharing anecdotes about what I believed to be engaging, but I thought it would be so much better to lob that question to my own eighth graders. The responses I received from all 220 of them seemed to fall under 10 categories, representing reoccurring themes that appeared again and again. So, from the mouths of babes, here are my students' answers to the question: "What engages students?""

Why good leaders make you feel safe

Why good leaders make you feel safe | 21 century education | Scoop.it

Getting the environment right is all part of making colleagues and employees feel safe!  Trust and co-operation are all part of the deal.  Simon Sinek shares his philosophy on a circle of safety.  As teachers we need to strive to make this circle in our physical and virtual classrooms.
