Flip the Classroom or Flip the System?

Flip the Classroom or Flip the System? | chilean education, english language | Scoop.it

I’m a big proponent of using new technologies in education. I’ve used new pedagogies like Flipping the Classroom to achieve more differentiation. Use social media for anytime/anyplace learning. Videogames and web 2.0 tools broaden the pedagogical palette tremendously. And social media has allowed me to reach out to other teachers, researchers, school leaders, policy makers and politicians to gain new insights and influence education on a national level. Without social media I wouldn’t have been able to publish a book (with Rene Kneyber), Het Alternatief,  which tries to offer a new way of changing education. Both for students and teachers new technologies offer tremendous opportunities.

Fixing High School By Listening To Students - Grant Wiggins - te@chthought

Fixing High School By Listening To Students - Grant Wiggins - te@chthought | chilean education, english language | Scoop.it

"I recently had a pleasant back and forth with Michael Petrilli of the Fordham Institute on what ails the high school. He was reviewing the recent disconcerting NAEP results that once again show high school achievement is resistant to reform. On this he and I agree. But then he proposed some diagnoses, the latter of which I think is totally off base (an E D Hirsch diagnosis). I strongly agree with his conclusion: it’s high time we better understood the problem of the high school. (Hard to believe that after 30 years of reform that started with me working with Ted Sizer in the Coalition of Essential Schools, we still lack clear answers.) After going back and forth collegially, we agreed to do some walk-throughs together next school year."

Social storytelling robots that offer personalised teaching are giving preschool children a boost with their language skills

Robotos han empezido ensenar en algunes escuelas. Ayudan ninos con habilidades lenguajes. Son interactivo y los ninos les gustan jugar con los. Es una idea buena para mantener el attencion de los chicos.

The concept of special education

The concept of special education | chilean education, english language | Scoop.it
Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs.

 

Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs. They are a lifeline to children with special needs since children with special needs are constrained in their learning process because of their disabilities. It is just because of the special education teachers that they acquire the basic skills in education and life overall, and may learn to live independently. Special education teachers adapt the general education curriculum to suit the unique needs of each student. 

 

Thus, special education is a lifeline for those students who have special needs. They personally take care of the special needs of the students by modifying or changing the curriculum accordingly to the extent of disability, wether mild or moderate. With students having severe disabilities, they tend to teach such students basic skills so that students with disabilities can lead their lives independently and teach them basiccommunication skills and mathematics. 

Special education teacher assess the strengths and needs of each student and set their teaching goals accordingly. They help develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), which outlines the kind of education each student with special needs will receive. Special education teachers need to be calm, patient, organized, inspiring and accepting. Special education students can come with a varying degree of disabilities and from various backgrounds.

Special education teachers, hence, have to be understanding and have very effective communication skills, as special education students have difficulty in conveying their needs and ideas. Special education teachers help the students with special needs to feel comfortable in social situations and be aware of socially acceptable behaviour. 

Preparing the special education students for life after school is an important part of the work of special education teachers as they teach their students some basic skills which help them to live independently. Thus, special education teachers are doing a great service to the nation by catering to the needs of students with disabilities and help them live a near normal and dignified life.

It is great to have special education teachers and you can't thank them enough for the job they do in turning around somebody's life. Education is a big part of kid's future, and special education teachers give everyone a fair chance to succeed in life.

This article talks about the importance of special education teacher.

Luke French's comment, May 11, 2014 9:07 PM
Special education teachers are, as Michael said, invaluable. These teachers make nigh-unfathomable differences in these children's lives, and, in my opinion, do not receive due credit.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 22, 2014 4:53 PM

Do we need more certification and qualification for teachers? Or do we need better support in daily work they undertake? We treat teaching as if it is operating in a deficit model. Perhaps a new way of seeing teaching as operating from strength is required.
