Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.

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.

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:

The "Practice" is very easy to implement, YOU can do it in ONLY 1 week and less, it's ALL about the reflexes later to NOT forget it ;)
