Tools and Projects to Help Your Students Connect with the World | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
Our classroom walls shouldn't be the limits of our students' thinking. As educators, we can open our classrooms to the world by connecting students with significant places, experts in different professions, and peers in different grades or geographic locations. In the process, we help students see themselves as part of a global community of learners who have something to learn from and teach all members.

To Make Your Meetings More Productive, Do 1 of These 4 Things

To Make Your Meetings More Productive, Do 1 of These 4 Things | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

If you feel like most of your meetings at work are a waste of time, the good--and bad--news is that you're onto something. One survey found that 50 percent of meeting time is unproductive while up to 25 percent of meetings are spent on irrelevant issues. The same way we put deliberate thought into building businesses for our customers, we need to be intentional about planning meetings for their participants. A successful meeting is designed with its participants in mind.

 

Here are four tips for designing a brain-friendly meeting.

Tools for Self-Directed Learning
As they progress through middle and high school, students are expected to take on increasing responsibility for their learning, with more out-of-class assignments that require independent research, reading for understanding, and wider application of classroom lessons.

 

Our new book, Teaching Students to Drive Their Brains: Metacognitive Strategies, Activities, and Lesson Ideas, suggests that learning and applying strategies to “explain it to your brain” can help students improve their study habits. We note some of those strategies here.

Don’t just read—learn. There can be a huge difference between reading the words on the page and learning from them. To think through the ideas in a reading assignment and improve recall of what they have read, students might benefit from:

Creating diagrams, pictures, and symbols to represent key ideas as they take notes;
Summarizing passages in their own words (some students might enjoy the challenge of capturing the essence of an assignment in a tweet); and Searching for cues about the most important content. For textbook assignments, students can go back and review features like key terms, subtitles, and informational graphics after their first reading to reinforce crucial facts. When reading fiction or poetry, identifying literary devices such as metaphors and symbols can help uncover deeper meaning.
