Collaborative Teacher Efficacy vs Individual Efforts... | Teacher Learning Networks | 21Century Education | Scoop.it

Listening to teachers talk about teaching in a collaborative learning space – three teachers and up to 90 students as opposed to one teacher and 30 students - and one is struck by how much ‘we’ there is in the teacher voice. There is a firm belief that as a team, they are able to shift student outcomes, raise achievement, and meet the needs of a diverse range of learners. Teachers often cite examples of the advantage of working and teaching together:

This is a great article. It has really helped me when in my Leader of Pedagogy position. The dicsussions and language used between these teachers is a great guide for me when I'm observing and talking with teachers about collaboration.

Pokemon Go @ School

Pokemon Go @ School | 21Century Education | Scoop.it
If you work in a school, you are going to have to deal with the fact that students (and teachers) are going to play this during class time. I know some of you’ve built great digital citizenship at your schools and have guidelines in place like: games allowed during break only etc… but this is going to push all the boundaries you have in place.

Get behind it or on top of it, you can not ignore it.
 

It’s only just been released, it hits the sweet point of everyone under 25 and the gamers/geeks above that. It’s family friendly and firmly rooted in our pop culture. This will be somewhat of a storm in a teacup when you return to school after these holidays, it will eventually die back down in popularity but there will remain a large portion of users that are dedicated. So take the initiative and set the expectations your school or classroom has about Pokemon Go. I hope you get behind it because there are some great opportunities for learning and some very cool things you could do.

Below we’ll look at what you need to be aware of and share some ideas of what you can take advantage of too. You can check their support page for most FAQs about the app and if you still have a question just ask it in our comments section.

Chen Yi Lin's curator insight, March 21, 11:24 AM

It is a selection of the top 10 TED Ed videos in TED Ed video library on YouTube.  There are videos like 'How playing an instrument benefits your brain' by Anita Collins and 'How sugar affects the brain' by Nicole Avena.I agreed with what the author said.I agreed that teachers can share any of these videos that are created by the others with their students, the author said"Teachers can sift through the videos created by other teachers and share them with students on TED Ed website. "

I predict that with the help of TED Ed,education system will improve.Students' attitude towards study might change positively because TED Ed is attractive and interesting to some of them.TED Ed benefits the teachers and students the most.This might not be truly foolproof as some people might not like TED Ed and Mobile Learning as they are not familar with them.Thus,TED Ed might not work for some of the people.

“WHEN YOU COMBINE robots and cheetahs with military funding, you’re bound to end up with something incredible. Robotics engineers from MIT have spent over five years developing a battery-powered quadruped robot capable of running as fast as a human being. And now they’ve trained that robot to jump over hurdles—autonomously.In a video released today, the team from MIT shows off their DARPA-funded, four-legged harbinger of terror approaching and clearing obstacles up to 18 inches tall while maintaing an average speed of 5 mph. The 70-lb robot (roughly the same weight as a female cheetah) estimates the height, size, and distance of objects in its path, and adjusts its approach to prepare a jump and safe landing—all without slowing down.”
