It is now called flipped PD but such coaching has been occurring for nearly twenty eyars to my knowledge in some places. It is well worthwhile and its success is enhanced by modern systems such as YouTube, but in the end the quality of the result is dependent upon the quality of the coaching.

As-needed follow-up technology support after an introduction to new technology is vital to ascertain the inclusion of that technology into a teacher's repertoire.

Struggling with educators lack of technology fluency

Struggling with educators lack of technology fluency | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

It's 2012. Technology suffuses everything around us. The Internet and Internet browsers have been pretty mainstream for ===> at least a decade. <===

 

And yet, I continually run into significant numbers of educators who still don't know how to work their Internet browser. They struggle with copying and pasting. They get confused just clicking between 2 or 3 different browser tabs. They don't conceptually understand the difference between their browser's Google search box and the box where they can actually type in the URL and get there directly. They have no idea that they can right-click on things like hyperlinks or images. And so on… [And this is just the Internet browser. I'm not even talking about individual software programs or online tools.]

Hi +Tracee Orman, yes I so understand what you mean! They nod, smile and yet still don't put anything into practice in the classroom.

"We need different, not better..."

"We need different, not better..." | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

* We don’t need better assessments; we need different assessments that help us understand students as learners and constructors of their own ongoing education instead of knowers of information and narrow skills.
* We don’t need better teachers; we need different teachers who see their roles as master learners first and content guides or experts second.
* We don’t need better schools; we need different schools that function as communities of inquiry and learning instead of delivery systems for a highly proscribed, traditional curriculum.

 

… the idea of a fully networked, progressive learning environment would for the vast majority constitute *different* and would require us... to redefine the future.

A Principal's Reflections: Relevant Leadership for Today's Schools

A Principal's Reflections: Relevant Leadership for Today's Schools | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Over the past three years I have, in my opinion, dramatically grown as a school leader. The catalyst for a significant portion of this growth was my embracement of social media as a powerful leadership tool. For me social media opened the door to a variety of pathways to enhance my ability to lead a comprehensive high school is a way that was more relevant, meaningful, and impactful.

Learning with 'e's: Theories for the digital age: Postmodern perspectives

Learning with 'e's: Theories for the digital age: Postmodern perspectives | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Postmodernist views of society can be appropriated as lenses to analyse the personalised use of digital technology. Consumers of Web based content tend to search randomly and nomadically, due to the multi-layered, multi-directional nature of hyperlinked media and this aligns neatly with some post modern theory.

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer

For Students, Why the Question is More Important Than the Answer | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

In a traditional classroom, the teacher is the center of attention, the owner of knowledge and information. Teachers often ask questions of their students to gauge comprehension, but it’s a passive model that relies on students to absorb information they need to reproduce on tests.

What would happen if the roles were flipped and students asked the questions?

Cultures of Thinking

Cultures of Thinking | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

A key premise of the Visible Thinking approach is to seek ways to uncover and document students thinking so it can be discussed, reflected upon, and pushed further. Consequently, teachers employ various strategies for documenting the thinking students do. In doing so, teachers develop and use a language of thinking, they make the classroom environment rich with the documents of thinking (both processes and products, they look for opportunities for student thoughtfulness, they use thinking routines to support and nurture students thinking, they model and make their own thinking visible, and they send clear expectations about the importance and role of thinking in learning.

 

We refer to these components--language, environment, opportunities, routines, modeling, and expectations--as cultural forces. These forces, shape a classroom and a school to give it its unique feel.

Why Learning Should Be Messy

Why Learning Should Be Messy | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Can creativity be taught? Absolutely. The real question is: “How do we teach it?” In school, instead of crossing subjects and classes, we teach them in a very rigid manner. Very rarely do you witness math and science teachers or English and history teachers collaborating with each other.

Mindfulness Helps You Become a Better Leader

Mindfulness Helps You Become a Better Leader | Adademic support and leadership in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Ever since the financial crisis of 2008, I have sensed from many leaders that they want to do a better job of leading in accordance with their personal values. The crisis exposed the fallacies of measuring success in monetary terms and left many leaders with a deep feeling of unease that they were being pulled away from what I call their True North.
