5 Resources For Teachers And Tutors To Beat The Summer Slide

5 Resources For Teachers And Tutors To Beat The Summer Slide | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Like many educators, I simply can’t stop teaching. While I anticipate the end of the school year just as much as the next person, I always find myself back in teaching mode after a few weeks, tutoring all summer long. Like the students, I believe teachers also fall victims to the summer learning loss and I wanted to avoid it at all costs. Yet I still wanted to enjoy my summer and spend as little time as possible managing and preparing classes and lessons. So I decided to try something new. After playing around with a few Teaching Platforms, I liked the idea of easy and fast lesson and student management, but I wanted more. I wanted something that would give me all my resources instantly in one place, help me create great lessons fast, and manage everything for me. I had just about given up hope that such a system existed until I found Fishtree. Fishtree allowed me to do everything I wanted and more. Creating lessons and managing classes became easy and fast, with the added bonus of being able to collaborate with students instantly and safely through social media! Best of all, everything was available in the one place."

4 Steps Towards A More Personal Classroom

4 Steps Towards A More Personal Classroom | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Personalized learning requires we know our students very well. To do this we have to take many data sources, including interest profile data. We can also ask questions of each student to gain a better understanding. But this is just the beginning. Start with conferencing and building connections with your students. Do you know where they live? What they love? What they’re afraid of? What work their family does? What they believe about themselves?"

How to Conquer the Common Core

How to Conquer the Common Core | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it

Implementation of CCSS is not easy.


How will this affect my teaching?

How do I know what to teach?

Where do I get my resources?

How will this affect my students?

Will I (and they) be ready to meet the standards being set out?


The most common question among teacher community is one:


How can I find resources that integrate all of these skills, that allow for differentiation and personalized learning, which are fully aligned to the CCSS?

21st Century Learning: Overcoming Fear and Fostering Solutions

21st Century Learning: Overcoming Fear and Fostering Solutions | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Richard Riley, former Secretary of Education, pointed out, “We are preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist…using technologies that haven’t yet been invented…in order to solve problems that we don’t even know are problems yet.


It is imperative that we remind ourselves that the playing field has changed. Gone are the days of simply handing out worksheets, putting on a movie, and assigning textbook work. Assignments not only need to be correlated with state standards and district curriculum, but they need to be aligned with skills that are necessary to succeed in the 21st Century."

Is Anybody Listening to Teachers?

Is Anybody Listening to Teachers? | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"How had I learned? I learned from the experts, other teachers. I started interviewing every teacher I saw as effective in the classroom. They taught me how to make class work relevant to students. They showed me how to get my students excited about their writing, and how to help my students to think critically about their work and about their lives. After nine years of teaching, I now share what I have learned with other teachers. That’s what good teachers do—we help each other because we want every teacher at our school to be effective. That’s what works. That is what is best for the students. That is what truly effective teachers care about. We care about the students."

EdCamp Global Movement: What Every Teacher Should Know

EdCamp Global Movement: What Every Teacher Should Know | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Four years ago, EdCamp was set up by a small group of educators, inspired by the idea of providing a free space to generate and share ideas and to promote organic discussion. The name is derived from BarCamp, a concept that stemmed from the desire for an alternative to the traditional invitation-only, annual conference that allowed a governed discussion between a select few. EdCamp and BarCamp pride themselves in their status’ as “unconferences” that offer free, open and participatory workshop-events, aimed at creating organic conversation among enthusiasts.


To celebrate the EdCamp movement, Fishtree is giving FREE summer access to its next generation platform for all teachers attending EdCamp events this summer."

Leading Change From The Classroom: Teachers As Leaders

Leading Change From The Classroom: Teachers As Leaders | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it
Why Teacher Leadership?

The notion of teacher leadership is not new, but recently it has been transformed. In the past, teacher leadership roles have been limited in scope and established at the prerogative of school administrators. Teachers have long served as team leaders, department chairs, association leaders and curriculum developers. In these roles teachers have often served as "representatives" rather than "leaders" who enact change (Livingston, 1992). In addition, leadership roles for teachers have traditionally lacked flexibility and required a lengthy, ongoing commitment of time and energy. Often the decision to take on leadership tasks has been accompanied by a decision to get out of teaching and into administration.

How To Empower Every Single Student To Succeed | Trends in Education and Technology | Scoop.it

"Differentiated learning, personalized learning, multiple intelligences, multi-sensory education…the list goes on. We have a long list of terms to describe what teachers do to address the many varying needs they encounter in the classroom. Each of the above terms has a slightly different approach, a strategy for engagement, and a way to help students achieve and succeed.  No matter which one an educator may choose, they all share a common goal: empowering a diverse community of learners to succeed."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 20, 1:19 PM

Relationships are the key. Teaching uses relational language. Empowering is problematic as it suggests students are given the power. Engaging is more relational.

"Here are some of the thoughts I had prior to becoming a teacher:

A student doesn’t reach 9th grade English if they can’t read at the 9th grade level.A student who had disabilities would be provided with the materials they needed and might not follow the same curriculum.

Here’s the reality:

In some states, students are passed on to the next grade level, regardless of passing standards, let alone reading levels.Students didn’t come with the materials they needed and are expected to meet the same standards."

Classrooms are a mix of students. They come to us with different experiences, background knowledge, skills, talents, attitudes and understanding. There is no longer the proverbial “middle” to teach. Teachers strive to reteach and reach the lowest students while excelling and pushing the highest students. In between is a mixture of ability levels and good teachers want to reach them all.
