A Unique Approach To Pre And Post-Assessments

A Unique Approach To Pre And Post-Assessments (A Unique Approach To Pre And Post-Assessments http://t.co/Yj75WvBSvE #goodtimes)
Alexis Watt's insight:
As the desire to measure impact of learning on students (be they adult or in-compulsory ie: pre-completion of mandatory secondary schooling or anywhere in K-12) rises, particularly in corporate or enterprise settings, reference tools and standards gain both appeal and relevance. Why reinvent the science when adaptive application can deliver a contextually relevant outcome? Helping learning facilitators to recognise and pull the levers at their disposal can only serve to support improvements in whatever form these take.

Top 10 EduBlogs All Online Teachers Must Follow

Top 10 EduBlogs All Online Teachers Must Follow | all things learning | Scoop.it

Here’s a list of blogs that feed my teaching soul, hunger for knowledge, and need for deeper insights into teaching,  learning and writing. There are so many wonderful blogs that it’s impossible to list them all here,  so I’m listing the ones that have been most relevant to my own professional development. As such, they should be relevant to any teacher who wants to turn online teaching and/or publishing into a fully-fledged career.

A must for our staff

Maryalice Leister's curator insight, September 1, 2013 8:40 AM

I am making my way through these but am excited about the content I am finding here. What did educators ever do with all this wisdom before we had the place to make it heard? How wondrous that we can each become an expert and a motivator in our field!

5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online

5 (less traditional) ways to create and share knowledge online | all things learning | Scoop.it

The communication of knowledge and ideas is intrinsic to the human condition. Our earliest ancestors had a rich oral tradition, through which they passed on what they knew about the world, often across great distances.

 

Today, the avenues available to our quest to gain and share knowledge are boundless, but I’d like to share with you five of my own personal favorites.

I love it when others share information with me, whether it be business, political, in which I am not all that much into, but it still helps to know what's happening in the world of politics, or whether it be history of old or new, knowledge is the key to life and especially education.

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 23, 2013 12:04 AM

Use podcasting to meet Common Core standards of speaking & writing.

BI Media Specialists's curator insight, August 19, 2013 3:05 PM

Let us know if we can try one of these projects with your class.

How much knowledge is too much? | Scoop.it Blog

How much knowledge is too much? | Scoop.it Blog | all things learning | Scoop.it

Whether you are trying to be a successful entrepreneur, parent or friend, it’s wise to calibrate your knowledge meter. How much knowledge is too much? Is there such a thing as having too much knowledge and if so, how do you know when knowing too much actually hurts you, rather than inspires you?

 

As an Entreprenuer, you might be focusing all of your attention on building the strongest team, raising money and/or developing a competitive product for the marketplace. As a parent you might be exploring ways to better motivate and teach your children to become the best versions of themselves.  As a friend, your goal might simply be to have as much joy as possible when spending an evening with a loved one; a goal that these days seems to be the most difficult to attain.

 

Everyone I know seems to be suffering from the same problem: they are addicted to the idea of connection. They seem to be reading all the right books and acquiring a tons of knowledge, but I do not see most actually taking the time to stop the consumption part and actually implement what they’ve learned.

Pay it forward - like that @justcoachcit

As long as it does not put the company at risk or jeopardize their innovations that may be a competitive edge. Discretion is the better part of valor?

This article addresses the advantages of knowledge sharing online, particularly the power of social media and an online business model. By sharing our online knowledge and working together, we achieve the highest amount of growth and customer satisfaction. As the author explains, "We can ask questions of our Twitter followers and LinkedIn groups, or we can search blog posts and white papers for what we need and adapt it to our own projects, saving time and money in the process".
