Resource Roundup: The Pencil Metaphor - The Point, Labor, And Fun

Resource Roundup: The Pencil Metaphor - The Point, Labor, And Fun | Café puntocom Leche |

" Para a maioria dos educadores, de volta às aulas decorações ainda incluir a maçã proverbial, ônibus escolar, escrevendo tiras, e os cadernos de composição preto e branco .. .

Olhando para trás, queríamos reunir alguns dos nossos recursos favoritos que destacam o lápis como uma metáfora para a liderança, trabalho e diversão. "

Perhaps you remember a few years back when the pencil became a viral hit on Twitter. Think back to the year 2011 and recall how tablets were becoming "the next best thing" in education. How was this technology going to be integrated into the school day?

This post provides a number of resources that moves the pencil beyond that viral chat. You will find an image of the pencil with each component representing various groups of people often found in schools.

The video, iPencil, takes a look at what actually goes into making a pencil, and will teach students about how one product impacts much of the world. And last, but not least,, is the Ode to #PencilChat, a short video that looks at technology integration in the classroom.

Why look at the pencil? Here are the last two lines of this post. "Whether metaphor, symbol, or tool, the pencil is flexible, durable and timeless. We wish everyone a great school year."

The Pencil as a metaphor for educators and technology. 

I have yet to have a student ask, 'I won't do this because no-one's given me any PD.'

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Café puntocom Leche |

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

I like the approach of "walking in their shoes" to describe how educators effect an interest in learning.

5 Back to School Tips for New Teachers | Café puntocom Leche |
Apoiar novos professores de uma forma que é relevante para as suas necessidades é importante. Passei mais de dez anos como diretor da escola, e isso me levou a se tornar um advogado para apoiar activamente a prática do professor.
