Parents, if you want an index of the social network options kids could be using, this site is useful.

Thanks to @Gust MEES for sharing this resource.  I believe this is a great option that schools should be providing parents that have students actively using these or similar sites.  The more parents understand the better chances for collaboration among them and respect for educational use.

What Core Skills Do Teachers Need To Be Effective? | LEARNing To LEARN | Professional Development

What Core Skills Do Teachers Need To Be Effective? | LEARNing To LEARN | Professional Development | Critical thinking for high school | Scoop.it
“Teaching is complex work that people actually have to be taught to do,” says Deborah Loewenberg Ball, dean of the School of Education at the University of Michigan. Ball spent years as an elementary school teacher and was always praised for being a “natural,” but she says teaching never came easily. She worked hard at her job.

Now, she’s trying to dramatically change teacher training to focus on the specific knowledge and skills that teachers need to effectively help students. Understanding math and knowing how to teach it are two separate skills. And understanding how to teach math well doesn’t come naturally.

People who want to be teachers “deserve to learn how to do this work well,” Ball says. “And the children that they teach particularly deserve to have those teachers taught.”

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 10:42 AM

I chose this resource because I was interested in seeing what the identified "core skills" that characterize an effective teacher are. I totally agree that "how to teach" is a skill and not necessarily a skill that is intuitive or easily learned. It must be taught intentionally to practitioners. Those directing the teacher education program identified 19 core skills that a novice teacher must have. Not surprisingly, many of these traits like "reflective practice" and designing an appropriate learning sequence are generic. I especially like the idea that we must interpret student thinking. Too often, when a teacher sees a struggling student they advise them of the "right way" to answer a question or solve a problem. But understanding a student's flawed thought process is valuable and it allows a teacher to attend to root problems that will hinder future learning.

This sounds reasonable.

Asma Ghaffari's curator insight, September 23, 2015 8:43 AM

Pour moi, cette conférence est un message invitant à se poser la question suivante :"Quelle est ma capacité réelle à questionner mes propres croyances, opinions et valeurs?". Cette question pourrait probablement venir plus facilement à l'esprit grâce à des difficultés vécues dans sa relation avec le monde extérieur, son entourage, son travail, sa communication avec les autres, etc. Mais quand tout semble bien aller? Se la poser, relève pour moi non seulement d'une sorte d'humilité mais aussi du courage, car la réponse peut bouleverser les repères et provoquer l'inconnu.

Les périodes de chômage, de transition entre deux carrières ou de doutes sur sa vocation professionnelle, sont pour la vie professionnelle ces fenêtres ouvertes propices à explorer ce qui ne va pas en soi au présent.

We neither need nor want to remove or diminish the role of the teacher in the "in-school" success of students. We do however need to amplify the role and the voice of students and their families. Learning doesn’t take place unless it is consensual; a willingness on the part of the teacher and family: to listen, to respond, and to understand the significance of how all these factors influence students in the process.

Watch out for your own fixed mindset, Carol Dweck tells teachers | Growth Mindset | Critical thinking for high school | Scoop.it
Carol Dweck, the respected academic behind the “growth mindset” theory that has taken education by storm, has warned teachers to be aware of their own “fixed mindset” ideas. Writing for US publication Education Week, Professor Dweck said every teacher had a “fixed mindset” in some circumstances and a “growth mindset” in others, and that greater awareness of this could help teachers improve their practice.
