Positive Self-Talk for Stress Management

Positive Self-Talk for Stress Management | Transforming Education Together - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com | Scoop.it

In one day you not only teach, but you also manage behavior, plan lessons, assess learning, counsel students, carry out first aid, reply to a long list of emails, write reports, tidy classrooms, create resources, mark books and create displays – the list is endless. You feel overwhelmed, overworked, and easily trapped in negative thinking which in turn makes everything worse.


The good news is that there is help, and that is right inside of YOU!

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, March 21, 2015 1:26 AM

Of course, more and more teachers are using technology today, and any survey will show how active technology, or interactive technology is gaining precendance over static technology. Technology is not just the projector and the white board, rather it is much more than that. While the use of powerpoint and word might be on the decline, current use of technology is aimed at developing online surveys, blogs, google spreadsheets, and google docs. My mentor checks answer sheets, and thesis papers online. She does this for multiple drafts as competently as if she were checking notebooks! The effective use of technology however also depends on back end support from the organisation and institution that encourages the use of technology. This includes software and hardware support to teachers who adhere to the BYOD concept. I have known of organisations that restrict updates of operating systems and antivirus software because they feel that updates might eat into bandwidth. Unfortunately, the BYOD devices of the teachers started to give trouble as lack of updates and patches were not available on time.

M. Fagot-Karcher's curator insight, March 21, 2015 5:08 AM

I agree with that, very interesting

Teaching kids real math with computers

Teaching kids real math with computers | Transforming Education Together - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com | Scoop.it
From rockets to stock markets, many of humanity's most thrilling creations are powered by math. So why do kids lose interest in it? Conrad Wolfram says the part of math we teach -- calculation by hand -- isn't just tedious, it's mostly irrelevant to real mathematics and the real world. He presents his radical idea: teaching kids math through computer programming.

So Are Students Born Gifted or Made to be Gifted?

So Are Students Born Gifted or Made to be Gifted? | Transforming Education Together - www.TeachnKidsLearn.com | Scoop.it

This is a question that continues to be debated by many. It’s the old nature vs. nurture conversation. In my view, I would have to say I think that it is a little of both. I believe that we can all agree that both are equally important in raising a child regardless of whether the child is classified as gifted or bright.

 

It would kind of be logical to think that heredity plays a huge role on whether a child might be gifted. You know the story “smart parents naturally have smart kids”; right?

Teach N Kids Learn's insight:

What would be your position on this question?

An older article, but examples of adaptive learning--mostly in higher ed. On the corporate side--see little true uptake from a programmed sense.

Clay Leben's curator insight, March 19, 2015 10:34 AM

Focus on well understood subjects like math concepts.

Michael Patrick Dunn's curator insight, March 28, 2015 3:27 PM

These adaptive programs are great for augmenting learning, closing the learning gaps, and/or being the intervention.  Core concepts still need to be taught thru best practice, which we know is direct, explicit instruction as shown by the research.
