What teachers need and reformers ignore: time to collaborate

What teachers need and reformers ignore: time to collaborate | Curate Webpages | Scoop.it

How will teachers transform their practice to meet these expectations?  In fields like trauma care and the building trades that have seen sharp gains in quality over the past generation, the emergence of new standards for professional practice coincided with a focus on improving collaborative decision-making and inquiry to solve problems in real time. If we want to see similar gains in education, we must structure for success by understanding that effective collaboration in schools doesn’t occur by happenstance—it requires purposeful action.

To add to this list, a friend of my recommended a presentation creator called Prezi (http://prezi.com). It's a great alternative to PowerPoint and you can access it through the internet.

Ellen Noh's curator insight, April 19, 2013 3:20 AM

Great quality design and infographics are one of the fastest growing trends in social media, and we should definitely be on top of it!
