Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought

Using a Question Building Chart to Provoke Student Thought | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
One of the most effective ways to provoke student thought is through the building of “rich” questions. By asking meaningful questions - and interacting with textual information – students can come to an understanding that builds upon on their own personal experiences and opinions. Through the use of a template, questions can be created in any way that you want and provide you with a specific platform to begin your questioning focus.

The questions can be based on exam questions, or directly from past exam questions.  The students can be asked about their own experiences and say whether the textual information has any application to the society in which they live, e.g. How does the information help us?

The Global Teacher

The Global Teacher | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Global teachers (should) care about education as a whole, as well as their school and their classroom.  I just want to iterate that if the person only looks at sharing and learning globally, but cannot connect with those in their classroom or school, I would not consider them a “global teacher”.  

They just know that we are better when we work together, not just taking, but contributing.  They know what they share makes a difference for others, as well as knowing what they learn from others makes a difference for their school and students.

So where are you on the spectrum, and what type of teacher would you want in your school?

With an interconnected world, we need to take people outside our immediate circles into account. Hence, this is a good discussion to have for pretty much anyone with Internet access, not just teachers, but teachers are a good place to start.

Unfortunately, it’s likely your site was hacked.Every day, cybercriminals compromise thousands of websites. Hacks are often invisible to users, yet remain harmful to anyone viewing the page — including the site owner. For example, unbeknownst to the site owner, the hacker may have infected their site with harmful code which in turn can record keystrokes on visitors’ computers, stealing login credentials for online banking or financial transactions. 

In this first step, we explain how and why hacks happen, and review options for recovery.

Are You a Credible Technology Leader?

Are You a Credible Technology Leader? | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
We do not need our leaders to be our best users of technology, but they should know enough to safely use some of it and enthusiastically encourage and lead their teachers to use much of it.

 

Leadership, good leadership, transcends physical boundaries.  Technology cannot be dismissed from the leadership's responsibility to be in the know.  It is acceptable for the teachers to be more skilled than their leader in the use of technology with students. 

 

But it is not acceptable for the leader to stay removed from its use.  We need to learn beside our faculties and know and understanding the tools they are using. Room must be made for common understanding and improved use. 

 

Teachers, students and parents need to trust that those who make technology available and who advocate for its use know what they are talking about. The right mix of vision, knowledge, risk taking... and a dash of courage ...make schools dynamic learning environment for all of us.

 

The warning is against leaders giving the nod to their teachers without understanding the technology. 

 

===> It raises issues of trust, integrity and safety. <===

The Connected Educator's Hotspot: I thought we decided that

The Connected Educator's Hotspot: I thought we decided that | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Had a great conversation with some fellow administrators this weekend.  We were reflecting on how sometimes people have trouble accepting a change in practice.  While I have sharedposts before on how to go about making changes in practice or procedures to create buy-in from staff, the discussion we had was geared toward what to do about staff that have not seemed to embrace the change and keep bringing it up in a negative manner.

 

 It's funny, depending on your perspective of course, how the little things can seem to be such a large distraction to your day as a building leader.  

 

The change in practice, one of my Tweeps shared, was a small practice that had taken place in the past, but it was one of those procedural things that shared information about student and was now easily handled through technology with the use of the Student Information System the district uses.  

 

However, staff members were used to having this information delivered to them daily.  I know, many may say this seems to be a first world problem, but as a building leader it becomes more than that.
