Six Tips for Teachers: How to Maximize Shared Resources

Six Tips for Teachers: How to Maximize Shared Resources | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Despite the fact that more and more schools are investing in mobile devices and 1:1 programs, many schools are limited by cash-strapped districts and cannot afford such luxuries. As a result, many teachers are forced to share a computer lab or a laptop cart with the whole school. This can create scheduling fiascos, and it limits teachers' ability to truly integrate technology into their classrooms. For those who have access to a classroom computer or a few student desktops, I wrote a post a while back on how teachers can maximize the computer(s) in their classrooms. This time, however, I'll describe ways that teachers can get the most out of shared resources at their school.

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher

Konstantinos Kalemis's comment, August 9, 2012 9:53 AM
To work, the 21st century skills movement will require keen attention to curriculum, teacher quality, and assessment.
A growing number of business leaders, politicians, and educators are united around the idea that students need "21st century skills" to be successful today. It's exciting to believe that we live in times that are so revolutionary that they demand new and different abilities. But in fact, the skills student’s needs in the 21st century are not new.
Critical thinking and problem solving, for example, have been components of human progress throughout history, from the development of early tools, to agricultural advancements, to the invention of vaccines, to land and sea exploration. Such skills as information literacy and global awareness are not new, at least not among the elites in different societies. The need for mastery of different kinds of knowledge, ranging from facts to complex analysis? Not new either. Today we cannot afford a system in which receiving a high-quality education is akin to a game of bingo. If we are to have a more equitable and effective public education system, skills that have been the province of the few must become universal.
This distinction between "skills that are novel" and "skills that must be taught more intentionally and effectively" ought to lead policymakers to different education reforms than those they are now considering. If these skills were indeed new, then perhaps we would need a radical overhaul of how we think about content and curriculum. But if the issue is, instead, that schools must be more deliberate about teaching critical thinking, collaboration, and problem solving to all students, then the remedies are more obvious, although still intensely challenging.

Bringing Your Textbook to Life! 15+ Tips & Resources : Teacher Reboot Camp

Bringing Your Textbook to Life! 15+ Tips & Resources : Teacher Reboot Camp | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Your textbook is just another tool in your teachers’ kit of ways to engage learners. The problem is that for many of us it becomes a crutch when we first begin our planning. The textbook can be very useful for planning our curriculums and lessons. It is a framework and guide that provides us a general overview of what should be covered within our classes. However, for our learners the textbook is often boring and tedious. No learner wants to spend hours sitting down reading or answering questions from a textbook for an entire year. Even if the textbook was full of vampires or adventures, the students would get bored and not retain any of the information. Here are some tips and resources that will have your learners engage with their textbooks. These tips I hope show you how to bring this tool to life for more hands-on, student-centered learning in the forthcoming school year! Watch the recording of my recent webinar on this topic here!

May I also add Present.Me that allows you to attach a video of yourself presenting to your powerpoint presentation. I use it to send to my class when I cannot be there for their lessons. Genuis.

I agree Charlotte! Present.me is awesome, I use it too. And Prezi, and many more tools.... But that was the author's choice. I like the annotations and tips very much!

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Teacher Professional Development?

Can Twitter Replace Traditional Teacher Professional Development? | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it
This piece comes to us courtesy of The Hechinger Report's HechingerEd blog.

Twitter and Facebook might soon replace traditional professional development for teachers. Instead of enduring hours-long workshops a few times a year, teachers could reach out to peers on the Internet in real time for advice on things like planning a lesson (or salvaging a lesson that's going wrong), overcoming classroom management problems, or helping students with disabilities.

Or, at least, that's what a group of Internet-savvy educators who convened in New York City this week are hoping.
