Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

Based on her research, Dr. Immordino-Yang will engage the audience in discussions and activities about how learning happens and how adults can support it .  She will argue that learning is driven by an inherent desire to make culturally appropriate meaning of one's experiences in the world.

This post just made me grin and want to cheer. As he says, building up teens and helping takes a hell of an effort and requires a bucketload of perseverance. Seeing them smile, seeing them engage, seeing them achieve and begin to believe in themselves is worth every minute of toil and patience to help them get there.

Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right

Giving Student Feedback: 20 Tips To Do It Right | Building Effective Relationships With Students | Scoop.it

"As teachers, it is essential that we make the process of providing feedback a positive, or at least a neutral, learning experience for the student.

 So what exactly is feedback?  Feedback is any response from a teacher in regard to a student’s performance or behavior.  It can be verbal, written or gestural. The purpose of feedback in the learning process is to improve a student’s performance- definitely not put a damper on it.  The ultimate goal of feedback is to provide students with an “I can do this” attitude."
