Collaborative Teacher Efficacy vs Individual Efforts... | Teacher Learning Networks

Collaborative Teacher Efficacy vs Individual Efforts... | Teacher Learning Networks | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Listening to teachers talk about teaching in a collaborative learning space – three teachers and up to 90 students as opposed to one teacher and 30 students - and one is struck by how much ‘we’ there is in the teacher voice. There is a firm belief that as a team, they are able to shift student outcomes, raise achievement, and meet the needs of a diverse range of learners. Teachers often cite examples of the advantage of working and teaching together:

This is a great article. It has really helped me when in my Leader of Pedagogy position. The dicsussions and language used between these teachers is a great guide for me when I'm observing and talking with teachers about collaboration.

“I think all teachers must have times when they’re faced with the decision to continue on the safe road that they know, or radically depart on a way that they believe to be better, but the specific route and outcomes are unknown,” writes Shelley Wright on the excellent educators blog Voices from a Learning Revolution.

In 2002 I did this very important step ALSO and I jumped in with 2 feet on something which nobody tried before in my country, teaching differently where my students were the center and not me! I taught mostly adults and seniors but also some teachers in primary school and primary school classes, it was a big funny experience (but lots of fears also...) BUT I faced IT and I had very good results!

 

My learners, even 60+ and 70+ learners learned ICT, even that I proudly could say that +/- 96% success was guaranteed, with traditional teaching it wouldn't have been possible...

 

My pioneer step was a SUCCESS! DO the same, YOU won't regret it! Check also the books I was reading, which helped me a lot:

Instant Project Visibility | LeanKit | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
LeanKit is a simple, visual project and process management tool that allows organizations to easily visualize and manage the flow of their work, while collaborating with team members to consistently deliver results.

 

Online, Visual Project Boards

 

In LeanKit, you map your organization’s processes onto virtual whiteboards. On each board the process steps are represented as vertical and horizontal lanes. Cards represent work items, which team members update and move from across the board as they complete their share of the work.

 

Rather than having to ask for status reports, managers and customers can just look at the board. Board updates are visible in seconds around the globe and e-mail alerts and RSS feeds are available, so you and your team can take immediate action to resolve issues before they turn into serious problems.

Adaptability to Online Learning: Differences Across Types of Students and... | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
CCRC conducts research on community colleges and contributes to the development of practice and policy to promote success for all higher education students.

 

Abstract

Using a dataset containing nearly 500,000 courses taken by over 40,000 community and technical college students in Washington State, this study examines how well students adapt to the online environment in terms of their ability to persist and earn strong grades in online courses relative to their ability to do so in face-to-face courses.

 

While all types of students in the study suffered decrements in performance in online courses, some struggled more than others to adapt: males, younger students, Black students, and students with lower grade point averages. In particular, students struggled in subject areas such as English and social science, which was due in part to negative peer effects in these online courses.

The EU's 'Right To Be Forgotten': What Data Protections Are We Missing in the US? - Forbes | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Speaking to the “do not track issue” regarding the data of social network profiles, Erin Egan, Facebook’s chief privacy officer, said she wasn’t sure that a “do not track” browser setting accurately reflected a user’s wish to not to be tracked online, particularly in cases where companies such as Facebook tracked users to enable the very feature that customizes the user experience on the popular social network. Egan added, “For Facebook, we have social plugins. We don’t use that data for an advertising purpose — we use it to personalize the data on those pages.

 

===> ” Egan maintains that until the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) sets an official standard, “it’s really hard for companies like us.” More browser platforms may push ahead with a standard of their own, implementing settings that will enable expanded user control to block cookies, such as Internet Explorer’s default do not track setting. <===
