Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development - Edudemic

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development - Edudemic | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
As we’ve studied the educational process, it’s become clear that students learn in a variety of ways and that no single approach is always successful in a classroom. What makes complete sense to one student may sound like gibberish to another. Competency-based or “personalized” learning allows students to master skills at their own pace with …

Could video games measure skills that tests can’t capture?

Could video games measure skills that tests can’t capture? | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Imagine you’re playing a computer game that asks you to design a poster for the school fair. You’re fiddling with fonts, changing background colors and deciding what activity to feature: Will a basketball toss appeal to more people than a pie bake-off?

Then, animal characters — maybe a panda or an ostrich — offer feedback on your design. You can choose whether to hear a compliment or a complaint: “The words are overlapping too much,” or, “I like that you put in the dates.”

 

 

“They’re not just measures of what the student already knows, but attempts to measure whether they are prepared to continue learning when they’re no longer told exactly what to do.”

 

You can use their critiques as guides to help you revise your poster. Finally, you get to see how many tickets your poster sold.

You may teach online or you may teach face-to-face or perhaps you combine the two, but in all cases the learners we work with have a variety of learning styles. Today we  are told that each student should receive personalized learning opportunities. This post provides a look at ten types of learners you may find in your classroom (on or offline). By understanding the type of learners you will be able to design more effective lessons (and also personalize them to the best of your ability. 

Each type of learner is described in more depth under the visualization.

How do you explain to students and parents the Common Core standards? If this question is difficult to answer you should check out this post. There are two tools that you may find helpful.

The image above shows six classroom scenes showing 21st century skills that students are developing on the left side. The right side shows that paths that students may take based on their skills.

There is also a second visual that is designed for teachers. It is an evidence sheet. You may take the sheet and complete two sections. The left side shows what the standards look like in your classroom, and the right side will  allow you to share how the skills will help your students succeed in college and career.

You can download both these tools as pdf files.
