Dyslexia: An Ounce of Prevention...

Dyslexia: An Ounce of Prevention... | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
I recently read an article that suggested that children are not learning disabled until they attend school and fail to adequately learn to read and write. The author referred to this as “school-induced learning disabilities.” The article went on to suggest that if those same kids were simply taught the way they learned, they would not only not need special education services, but they would not need a label of “learning disabled,” or as in most cases of learning disabilities, dyslexia.

5 Myths About Coding: My Experiments in Teaching and Learning

5 Myths About Coding: My Experiments in Teaching and Learning | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

Having integrated coding into my math classes, many teachers have asked me how to get started.  I am happy to help.  In talking to many teachers and parents, it seems there is considerable misunderstanding of how coding really fits the elementary school classroom.  Hopefully these points can help us out and generate discussion.

Imagine for a moment you cannot swim, or maybe you don’t have to imagine it because you really can’t swim. Or perhaps you can swim just well enough for a few minutes not to drown. Or maybe your swimming is adequate, but it requires every cell in your body, and when you are done, you can barely move. Now imagine that every single morning someone takes you to a pool and pushes you in.

Make any video your lesson | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it
In the world of technology, we are being introduced to new terms every now and then. Gone are the days when the students were taught with traditional techniques. Now, teachers have the opportunity to bring something new and exciting into their classrooms. A recent trend that has taken control of classrooms and has become the new favorite of the teachers is to flip their classrooms and expand their teaching lessons beyond. If you are a teacher and looking at ways to take your class on to next level, flipping is the trend you might end up liking.

Learning Through Reflection

Learning Through Reflection | Cool School Ideas | Scoop.it

Teachers who promote reflective classrooms ensure that students are fully engaged in the process of making meaning. They organize instruction so that students are the producers, not just the consumers, of knowledge. To best guide children in the habits of reflection, these teachers approach their role as that of "facilitator of meaning making."

In the role of facilitator, the teacher acts as an intermediary between the learner and the learning, guiding each student to approach the learning activity in a strategic way. The teacher helps each student monitor individual progress, construct meaning from the content learned and from the process of learning it, and apply the learnings to other contexts and settings. Learning becomes a continual process of engaging the mind that transforms the mind.
