I would be careful subscribing to the lists as an end-all-to-be-all.  If a teacher was doing several things on the first list and very few on the second, it is problematic. My classroom looked disorganized, but I was on top of things, we had lots of conversation, we used creative projects, had few discipline issues, etc. Students enjoyed coming to classes. That is the ultimate measure.

30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers

 

If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, “It was all Mr. Jones. He just never gave up on me.”

 

What students take away from a successful education usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subject. It’s difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is:

This is a nice review checklist of successful teachers. I would add socially and culturally aware of the learners needs.

 

Joy Leffers's curator insight, June 4, 11:32 AM

These are great goals to set and try to achieve.  I feel each one really does make for teaching success.  I realize no one teacher will achieve all at once.  It will be good to review from time to time to see which ones I need to improve on.  The most important thing to me is that teacher success leads to student success.

Culling Flipped Classroom Best Practices from Successful Implementations

Culling Flipped Classroom Best Practices from Successful Implementations | Science & DT - teaching & learning | Scoop.it

The flipped classroom has been around for years now, and it has matured from a new concept – to a ‘trend’ – to a technique that is now ripe for widespread adoption.


The use of the technique has evolved to the point that we are seeing a proliferation of published reports sharing measured successes. These stories can readily be culled for practices that have helped to turn the use of flipped teaching and learning techniques into improved learning outcomes in those schools.

I agree with the concepts of "flipped classrooms" but socio-cultural aspects should be taken into consideration within your teaching and learning environments.

Study smarter, learn better: 8 tips from memory researchers | VOX | Science & DT - teaching & learning | Scoop.it
Here's why re-reading is a total waste of time.

 

That's the conclusion of Washington University in St. Louis psychologists Henry Roediger and Mark McDaniel — who've spent a combined 80 years studying learning and memory, and recently encapsulated their findings with novelist Peter Brown in the book Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning.

I agree with the article which states that "using active learning strategies is the most effective teaching and learning approach" within the 21st Century classroom.

Slatebox - Visualize Everything

Slatebox - Visualize Everything | Science & DT - teaching & learning | Scoop.it

Slatebox helps you draw and share ideas very easily on "slates" that kids love to use. You can spend less time telling them how to use Slatebox and more time conveying the idea because it's so straightforward.

You can give new students logins with PINs instead of email. Plus, you'll see everything they do in real-time. You'll be able to assign new slates as homework based on templates you produce, and manage all of their work from a single portal.

Strategies for Enhancing Higher Order Thinking (HOT) | LD OnLine

Strategies for Enhancing Higher Order Thinking (HOT) |  LD OnLine | Science & DT - teaching & learning | Scoop.it

Higher order thinking (HOT) is thinking on a level that is higher than memorizing facts or telling something back to someone exactly the way it was told to you. HOT takes thinking to higher levels than restating the facts and requires students to do something with the facts — understand them, infer from them, connect them to other facts and concepts, categorize them, manipulate them, put them together in new or novel ways, and apply them as we seek new solutions to new problems.

 

LD OnLine is the leading website on learning disabilities, learning disorders and differences. Parents and teachers of learning disabled children will find authoritative guidance on attention deficit disorder, ADD, ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dysnomia, reading difficulties, speech and related disorders.

 

LD OnLine works in association with Learning Disabilities Association of America, International Dyslexia Association, Council for Exceptional Children, Schwab Foundation for Learning, and the Coordinated Campaign for Learning Disabilities.
