32 Characteristics Of High-Performing Classrooms [#Infographic] | #LEARNing2LEARN #ProfessionalDevelopment | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it
Instructional design is the strategic creation of learning experiences through intentional planning, sequencing, and data-based revision of learning.

This process includes both the ways content is accessed, and the learning needs and objectives (and how they are determined) themselves.

This puts instructional strategies, literacy strategies, curriculum mapping, standards unpacking, assessment design, digital literacy, and a dozen other facets of education beneath its umbrella.

With that in mind, we’ve created the following 32 characteristics of higher-level instructional planning to help you spot the holes in your teaching.

How To Be a Better Listener

How To Be a Better Listener | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it
“Most people do not listen with the intent to understand; they listen with the intent to reply.” — Stephen Covey

Listening is a skill and you can get better with practice. 

But why get better at listening? 

Skilled listening can help you connect with others, learn faster, win friends, and influence people.

Marisol Espinoza's curator insight, April 2, 10:20 PM
This article came in handy for sure because I have always thought as myself as a good listener, but what made me a good listener? Turns out I could be a better listen just from simple tools from this article provided. Source wasn't bias at all, just gave you the facts on how to become a better listener because everybody wants to be heard, but yet no one ever wants to listen. I was always better at listening and not speaking I never liked to talk. My boyfriend on the other hand is the complete opposite as me. He talks non stop, but listening is not his strong side. Everyone can talk, but very few can actually listen. Being able to be a good listener you can actually connect with people more and start learning about others, even though they are talking about something that may not interest you they still deserve your attention just like you would like their attention. This article was very well thought out and I love how they gave you different sections in the article to help you connect with yourself as to if you are a good listener and if you're not it explained how you can improve.

Lon Woodbury's curator insight, September 18, 2015 4:12 PM

The root of their claim is that the teacher is the lesson, and attempts to eliminate the teacher (like basil readers or programmed education schemes) have not improved education.  But, how can teachers trained and experienced to focus on providing facts and information to the students convert to focusing on the internal thinking and motivations of the students?  The good teacher instinctively does that, and always has. -Lon

Michel Santiago del Pino's curator insight, August 13, 2015 7:41 AM

Poder expresar la opinión y la elección propia es un Derecho negado históricamente a los menores y a todos los colectivos en desigualdad. La capacidad de hacer valer la opinión propia ya ha sido recogida en los Derechos del Niño y ratificada, en el caso español en 2011. La consideración de los menores estudiantes como coparticipes en la construcción de la sociedad ha de empezar en la escuela. Si se comprende en todo su alcance, la Alfabetización Mediática e Informacional aporta las herramientas para que la participación a través de la creación se haga sobre la base de la reflexión crítica, y la toma de decisión aquilatada. Ya sea de forma autónoma o la mucho más enriquecedora deliberación y creación cooperativa. Se sabe como se debe hacer, ahora lo importante es que se entienda que quererlo hacer es el mejor de los caminos.

David Allen Wizardgold's curator insight, August 14, 2015 3:07 AM
It is a shame that many teachers are afraid of technology and won't allow it in the classroom. They see it as a challenge to their control of the students and subject matter within the classroom. To a certain extent it is reasonable because the technology can be used for things other than learning in the classroom. The teachers have a responsibility to get as many of the students to have learned the curriculum for the day and it can't be done if the students are stuck in Facebook.The next thing will be to change the examination system to support the use of new technology rather than requiring students hit the paper with those old-fashioned pens.I'd like to think that there is a way technology can be used as it should be within the classroom. If the students are allowed to make full use of 21st-century technology then maybe the teachers will be able to teach for the next century instead of being stuck in the last one.

How To Add Rigor To Anything - TeachThought

How To Add Rigor To Anything - TeachThought | Art Teachers Rock | Scoop.it
Rigor is a fundamental piece of any learning experience.

It is also among the most troublesome due to its subjectivity. What does it mean? What are its characteristics? Rigorous for whom? And more importantly, how can you use to promote understanding?

Barbara Blackburn, author of “Rigor is not a 4-Letter Word,” shared 5 “myths” concerning rigor, and they are indicative of the common misconceptions: that difficult, dry, academic, sink-or-swim learning is inherently rigorous.
