Debunking a Myth About U.S. Teachers

Debunking a Myth About U.S. Teachers | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
New papers suggest that U.S. teacher quality never declined as badly as an oft-cited 2010 report said.

 

New Research Rebuts Claims About Low US Teacher Quality.

The Hechinger Report (1/26) reports that McKinsey and Company issued a report in 2010 which argued that nations with “top performing school systems draw teachers from the best and brightest in their societies, but in the United States, almost half of new teachers come from the bottom third.” However, new research suggests that “US teacher quality never declined as badly as that report said, and by 2010 had already turned around markedly for the better.”

12 Ways Teachers Can use Google Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Google Classroom which is only six months old has managed to host over 30 million assignments turned in by teachers and students. This is a big sign that the tool is being widely endorsed within the education community particularly in the States.

 

With this increasing popularity of Google Classroom, Google recently released some new updates to enhance its performance and make it more mobile friendly. The major update is the release of Google Classroom apps for both iPad and Android .

For those of you who are not familiar with google Classroom, here are some of the things you can do with this platform:

Ernest's comment, January 27, 12:19 AM
I see that many teachers are using Google classroom to help facilitate teaching and learning.
I think it is possible to try and use it in my English lessons. For example, good pieces of composition writing can be uploaded by students and shared across classes as resources for learning.
I wonder what are some critical success factors for this to take place in my school.
Bowie Bowie's comment, January 27, 12:36 AM
I notice that you've mentioned the use of ICT in English. Why is that important?
Mark Fuson's curator insight, January 27, 8:31 AM

I truly believe that mastery of GAFE is one of the most important skills a teacher needs to learn today. While there is a bit of a learning curve, having these tools will make your job much easier in the future. Whether you are using Google Classroom, another LMS, or just the tools, GAFE will transform your classroom.

ISTE - 6 elements of a successful iPad implementation | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

 - As more districts across the United States move to 1:1 initiatives, a common barrier is financial resources, and a common temptation is to regard these initiatives as technology enterprises rather than instructional transformations. In a three-year pilot project, the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) addressed these challenges by implementing a creative approach designed to entice public funders by providing all students with equitable access to digital devices.
