Content Curation is the art of asking questions

Content Curation is the art of asking questions | Cuppa | Scoop.it

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’ | Cuppa | Scoop.it
The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.

 

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

Howard Gardner asks teachers to Drop the term “styles.” It will confuse others and it won’t help either you or your students.

Of course they aren't. They are the raw material that come together and result in learning styles. I've got to read this :)
Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 3:18 AM
Read it. I've always found Gardner's MI theory interesting - because it's a great equalizer - when I was growing up logical-mathematical intelligence (in Gardner's terminology) was given the highest importance - art, music, sports etc. were considered talents/gifts - and not intelligences. Gardner made them more respectable by calling them intelligences. This is why I too can call myself intelligent today - visually and spatially intelligent. Ahem!

Because A PLN Is a Gift…

Because A PLN Is a Gift… | Cuppa | Scoop.it

 

Yes, I talk about Twitter all the time.  I rave about the people I’ve met. I am addicted to edcamps.  I stalk the blogs of people who inspire me.  I read, save, download, bookmark, and retweet what makes me a better educator.  What is it all about? The people who are a part of my PLN, or personal learning network.  I often say the “P” in PLN stands for “Positive.”  One tweet can change your entire perspective, push your thinking, solidify your thoughts, or make you question something you didn’t even realize you needed to question.  For that? I am incredibly grateful.  The PLN is a gift that keeps on giving. It encourages you to give back just as much. It inspires you to do more, be more, and to never stop learning. So, to every person in the world who has become part of mine, I just wish to say “Thank you!”

Confidence that a 'one size fits all' global economy and that the 'Western canon' of knowledge are sufficient to see humanity through the next phase of its transformations and adjustments has diminished dramatically over the past years.

We have an economic system that is certainly not a tide that floats all boats. We have challenges to the dominance of traditional knowledge claims as well. What does this mean for higher education, for social responsibility and for the way forward?

The Lasting Impact of Instructional Coaching

Cause-Effect Coaching

 

David uses a “cause-effect coaching” method.  He shows teachers what they are doing or are not doing (the cause) and how it is related to what the students are learning or not learning (the effect).

The purpose is to show the teacher that the students may not be the cause of why the students are not learning.

 

The cause-effect concept was shown in the original work on classroom management by Jacob Kounin.  He summarized his research from observing teachers and classrooms and concluded that it was “the behavior of the teacher and not the behavior of the students that resulted in student learning.”

 

David says, “School leaders and teachers must always examine how their actions or inactions may be creating barriers or creating enhancements to learning.”

Struggling with educators lack of technology fluency | Cuppa | Scoop.it

It's 2012. Technology suffuses everything around us. The Internet and Internet browsers have been pretty mainstream for ===> at least a decade. <===

 

And yet, I continually run into significant numbers of educators who still don't know how to work their Internet browser. They struggle with copying and pasting. They get confused just clicking between 2 or 3 different browser tabs. They don't conceptually understand the difference between their browser's Google search box and the box where they can actually type in the URL and get there directly. They have no idea that they can right-click on things like hyperlinks or images. And so on… [And this is just the Internet browser. I'm not even talking about individual software programs or online tools.]
