I think these ideas are great.  I hope to take my son through many of these activities and be by his side so that he learns about knives, power tools, fire, driving, and more.

Planning the map inside your head is the most important task of a man. Without a plan a person is just a clueless wanderer. And into the vast oceans of information a wanderer is just bound to be lost. Map in your mind, what is research all about, what are the key points and what you hope to achieve as the conclusion of this research and does your information smoothly flows proving towards your conclusion? This makes the job of searching easier.

The Lasting Impact of Instructional Coaching

The Lasting Impact of Instructional Coaching | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Cause-Effect Coaching

 

David uses a “cause-effect coaching” method.  He shows teachers what they are doing or are not doing (the cause) and how it is related to what the students are learning or not learning (the effect).

The purpose is to show the teacher that the students may not be the cause of why the students are not learning.

 

The cause-effect concept was shown in the original work on classroom management by Jacob Kounin.  He summarized his research from observing teachers and classrooms and concluded that it was “the behavior of the teacher and not the behavior of the students that resulted in student learning.”

 

David says:

 

==> “School leaders and teachers must always examine how their actions or inactions may be creating barriers or creating enhancements to learning.” <==

Learn more about cause-effect coaching.  If it doesn't last, it's just a distraction.

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Yep, learning can be "all that".  When you hit your flow it is glorious!

Concerning ===> Safe. One of the first things I learned in teacher school was that learning only happens when people feel safe. This includes physical and emotional safety. It's important to note that the girl says "I'll be fine." Despite her obvious fear of the unknown, she is telling us that she feels safe.


In 21st Century while using e-Learning, m-Learning and "Bring Your Own Device" [BYOD] WE MUST also consider the Internet Safety and the Security in School Environment as well as the Security of Home Environment because of HomeWork and the Protection of the devices!


A MUST know...

 

Learning the basics of Cyber-Security is ALSO a MUST in 21st Century! Education should follow this and teaching it up from the early age as nearly anyone is Online today!

 

It is actually very easy, so don't fear about, and check my FREE courses to find out and to help protecting the kids worldwide:
