Control and yet more control, but no real education and skills development? By Charlotte Davies - The Staffroom

Control and yet more control, but no real education and skills development? By Charlotte Davies - The Staffroom | Continuous Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it
Education is about helping a child organise and make sense of their development. Humans are highly complex animals with the most complex brains in the known universe. Our development is long and slow so it’s vital that our parenting, education and training systems need to mirror our developmental needs across all areas of our sense

Updated Empathy Map Canvas 

Updated Empathy Map Canvas  | Continuous Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it
I have seen a lot of versions of the Empathy Map since we created it so many years ago, and they vary widely. The Empathy Map was created with a pretty specific set of ideas and is designed as a framework to complement an exercise in developing empathy.

 

While the success of the Empathy Map is exciting and makes us very happy, a lot of the thinking has gotten lost in translation over the years, and the various versions that have proliferated across the web have somewhat degraded the original concept.

20 Ways to Learn More Efficiently - InformED | Continuous Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it

Are you currently enrolled in an online course, hoping to learn a new language, or planning to take up a musical instrument? Although we all have our own preferences when it comes to learning, the way the brain processes, stores, and retrieves information is the same for all of us, and the more you understand about how your brain works, the easier it will be to learn and improve in just about every area of your life.

So based on current research, here are 20 things you can do to make your learning more efficient.

Why Don’t We Differentiate Professional Development?

PD could be more effective if we differentiated it by gauging teachers' readiness, utilizing their interests, involving them in the process, and providing continual assessment opportunities.

Is Chomsky's Theory of Language Wrong? Pinker Weighs in on Debate

Is Chomsky's Theory of Language Wrong? Pinker Weighs in on Debate | Continuous Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it
Chomsky’s ideas have profoundly affected linguistics and mind-science in general. Critics attacked his theories from the get-go and are still attacking, paradoxically demonstrating his enduring dominance. Some attacks are silly. For example, in his new book A Kingdom of Speech Tom Wolfe asserts that both Darwin and “Noam Charisma” were wrong.

Some useful ideas.

Ely Córdoba's curator insight, September 28, 2016 10:33 AM
Over the years, smartphones takes an important part in the people, and more in younger people. In the classroom is very common the use of them, students use them to chatting, to read, to listen to music, and to use the camera in order to make photos or videos, and the last one has been very popular. However, stadistics show that the use of camera changes during the years; for example, today is less used in contrast with 2010, but this is not the point, the real point in this article is the motivation to implement this kind of tool in the different classes. All students have a smartphone, and as a teacher we can implement the use of the camera to change the teaching and give them dynamic activities. Some activities involve make videos, or stories with pictures, portfolios, collages, tutorial, presentations or different documents. These activities are atractive to students in order to change the way to learn and the applied activities in the process.

Playing Is More Than Fun—It's Smart

Playing Is More Than Fun—It's Smart | Continuous Professional Development for Teachers | Scoop.it
Children who pretend, and grown-ups who immerse themselves in the imaginary realms of fiction and drama, are considering what would happen if the world were different, and working out the consequences. My former student Daphna Buchsbaum, now at the University of Toronto, and I, along with several colleagues, found that preschoolers who pretended more were better at “counterfactual” reasoning–figuring out what could have happened, but didn’t.
