The Coaching Model

The Coaching Model | Digital Tools in the Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it
Good coaches know how to break down performance into its critical individual components. In sports, coaches focus on mechanics, conditioning, and strategy, and have ways to break each of those down, in turn.
Schools are at a perfect moment to think carefully and purposefully about coaching for both students and teachers. And the coaching model is an excellent one to examine, as the Atlanta Hawks have discovered.

Having a coach allows you to capitalise on the experience of others- that is why Entamio offers Executive trainers and coaches to our students- so they can perform at their best.

 

Professional athletes, singers, performers, they all have coaches that work with them to improve different the skills that will allow them to achieve, so it makes complete sense to have a trainer to help you experience learning. 


The New Yorker article referred to in this article is also worth reading; wise words from an incredibly talented man.

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn | Digital Tools in the Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it
Spend more time teaching learning skills. Klemm recommends memory tricks like mnemonic devices, and visualizing ideas as complex images, to help students expand their working memory. “If they knew these things, they wouldn’t have to work so hard and school might even become fun,” Klemm said. “Once students start reflecting and become more self-aware, they have the opportunity to become better students.”

“Working memory gets overloaded,” Kleem said. “Most people can only hold four independent ideas in working memory.” But if images are used to represent a constellation of ideas, people can remember much more. Words are hard to remember, but images stick with people. “It’s like a zip file,” Klemm said. “This is a way to get your working memory to carry more.”

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator

Being a Growth Mindset Facilitator | Digital Tools in the Elementary Classroom | Scoop.it

Jackie GERSTEIN: I was asked recently why I have a strong interest and innate understanding of the growth mindset. I believe it comes from a background of being an adventure educator, and even though it was not labeled as such, the adventure educator embraces a growth mindset when working with participants. The underlying tenet of adventure education is “You are capable of so much more than you can even imagine. I believe in you and your capabilities; and I will set up the conditions for you to develop and amplify that same belief in yourself.”

Ce schéma, que je vous invite à regarder non pas autour du thème du "leader" mais du "professionnel" que vous êtes, rejoint une démarche centrale de ma pratique au quotidien : commencer par avoir une vision, une vision partagée, pour aligner son "système, puis compléter/enrichir ses talents, respecter les 4 C (Communication, Collaboration, Esprit Critique, Créativité), donner du soutien dans l'action, s'améliorer et innover ! Un beau programme... en 7 étapes !
