This looks like a great tool for creating visual treasure hunts, just click photos of things you want students to find and then send the the treasure hunt. They have to find and match up their own pictures.

Could this be used in a library setting? I think so but could do with some ideas.

The 6 Characteristics of A Successful Educator

The 6 Characteristics of A Successful Educator | Anley - Tools for Teachers | Scoop.it

THE 6 CHARACTERISTICS OF A SUCCESSFUL EDUCATOR


21st century teaching skills Med kharbach


Jessica Hagy, a contributor in Forbes, has made an excellent account of the 6 main characteristics of people you should be around. While checking her article I instantly remembered the article I wrote a year ago called the 21st century teacher skills. There is a huge similarity between the two but what really attracted me in Hagy's post and which pushes me to share it with you here is the awesome illustration she employed. She used some catchy sketches that are alone enough to give you the gist of it all.

Going through her list I found out that those are the same characteristics educators and teachers need to look for and hence we entitled this post The 6 Characteristics of a Successful Educator. Hagy 's list is too general but I worked on it and added my own materials to make it teacher-focused. Check it out below.

Read and share with your colleagues.

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have | Anley - Tools for Teachers | Scoop.it

THE 33 DIGITAL SKILLS EVERY 21ST CENTURY TEACHER SHOULD HAVE


21st century teaching skills Med kharbach


Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test.

 

It is amazing how technology has changed the whole world giving rise to new forms of education we never thought of. Our students are more digitally focused than any time before. They spend more time interacting with their mobile devices than they do with their parents or close relatives. Admittedly, this digital boom has both positive and negative impact on our students. Lack of concentration, short attention span, distraction, visual stimulus overload, identity theft, lack of real world socializing, privacy issues, depression, and many more are but a direct result of the growing exposure to this technology. Studies have even proved that multitasking, which some educational technology experts brag about in relation to the use of today's technology, reduces the power of our concentration to the half. We should not, However, only look at the empty side of the cup, the other side is way bigger.

 

There are actually several pluses for the use of technology in education and to try and list them all here is way beyond the scope of this short post. Generally speaking, no two argue over the fact that technology advantages in education ( and in our life at large ) way outnumber its downsides. It is thanks to technology that you are now reading this post and will probably share it with your colleagues.

 

There is no blinking the fact that the type of students we teach today are completely different from last century's. We , definitely, need to look at some of the skills we, as teachers, need to equip ourselves with to better live up to the challenge. Among all the challenges we would have in education, there is not as daunting a challenge as catching students focus and getting them engaged in the learning process. For this particular reason, and in addition to the skills I initially mentioned in 21st Century Teaching Skills article, I would like to provide you with another list of some equally important digital skills that you, as a teacher, need to seriously consider if you want to pave the way for the 21st century teaching. I have added a list of web tools under each skill for teachers to better exploit it.

This is a simple tool for creating polls which you can then embed into websites. It looks like these use Flash, so there may be problems with mobile compatibility though. Good quick tool for getting students doing basic research or for you to do action research.

15 Tips for Raising Kids With a Positive Body Image

15 Tips for Raising Kids With a Positive Body Image | Anley - Tools for Teachers | Scoop.it

I wish I could say the above images were designed by me to make a point about fat-phobia and how poorly kids are treated when they don’t fit society’s ideal of size. Maybe I threw them together because I thought the SHOCK of seeing kids would help people understand how fat-shaming in adults can feel.


Alas, a group in Georgia actually produced these billboards in an attempt to end childhood obesity. Apparently they thought that shame was a good way to motivate kids to eat healthier and exercise. Clearly, they also are working under the delusion that size can somehow magically tell you about a person’s health.

Maths Learning and iPads

 

When thinking about using an iPad to support learning, it is important to remember that the iPad supports learning. It is not going to do the teaching for you. Maths learning is no exception. That said, innovative approaches to using multiple apps can really help with the support of the learning of different elements within the Maths curriculum.
