Five Tips for Using Pinterest in Education | Digital Learning Environments

Five Tips for Using Pinterest in Education | Digital Learning Environments | E-Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers are notorious for being resourceful; always on the lookout for the latest technology, the best lesson plans and creative ways to engage students. Pinterest, a virtual pinboard for creative ideas and information, is the ideal online resource for this type of teacher. However, if you are not careful, your Pinterest pins and board can quickly become as overwhelming as the disorganized filing cabinets, scraps of papers and internet bookmarks full of ideas and resources you have already amassed. If used effectively, Pinterest has the potential to truly improve your teaching.

A framework for creating wildly engaging lessons - Ditch That Textbook

A framework for creating wildly engaging lessons - Ditch That Textbook | E-Learning | Scoop.it

As a teacher, I’ve always been looking for that secret sauce for creating lessons that students love.

You know, those lessons that they’ll think of and talk about long after the bell rings. Those special lessons that help them remember a tricky concept they might not get otherwise.

In my years of teaching, I’ve found that my secret sauce comes down to five main ingredients:

     * Different
     * Innovative
     * Tech-laden
     * Creative
     * Hands-on


This framework is the basis of my own teaching and of my book, “Ditch That Textbook.” And it’s probably no surprise that it’s an acronym, spelling the word “ditch,” right?

6 Things That the HAPPIEST Teachers Do Every Day

6 Things That the HAPPIEST Teachers Do Every Day | E-Learning | Scoop.it

"We ALL know who they are.  They’re the teachers who are smiling almost every time you pass them in the hallways. They look energized and motivated.  Most of the time, they’ll take a moment to ask how your day is going or about something in your personal life.  They’re the teachers who are adored by their students and parents.  They rarely pass on negative information or chime in during a teacher gripe fest.  They truly and genuinely LOVE their jobs, and it shows.

 

Truthfully, I’ve had years where I really felt like this teacher and other years that I envied those who did.  But you know what I’ve figured out over the years? That this magical positive glow and overall attitude of happiness about teaching is a daily CHOICE when you enter your school building.

 

In the wise words of Abraham Lincoln, 
“Folks are usually about as happy as they make up their minds to be.”""

Ten Ways New Teachers Burn Themselves Out - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman

Ten Ways New Teachers Burn Themselves Out - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Although teacher attrition rates appear to have stabilized in recent years, the fact remains that nearly half of new teachers leave the profession before celebrating their fifth year anniversaries. I remember my first years in the classroom as some of my hardest, both personally and professionally. New teachers weren’t mentored then, and even now, many who do have the opportunity to work with a mentor report varied levels of satisfaction from their experiences.

How can we make the first years of teaching rewarding enough to retain new teachers? This question framed my work with a group of middle school mentors last month. They began attending to it by brainstorming ten different ways that new teachers burn themselves out. Naming them helped these mentors define new entry points for their work.

7 Ways Games Reward the Brain - ElectronicBrains

7 Ways Games Reward the Brain - ElectronicBrains | E-Learning | Scoop.it
In this TED Talk video entitled, 7 ways games reward the brain, Tom Chatfield  talks about the characteristics of video games which have the “ power to motivate and compel  us and transfix us like nothing else.”

Statistics show that the game industry was worth 10 billion dollars in 1990.  That number has significantly increased to 50 billion dollars globally today.  In addition, today people spend about 8 billion dollars buying virtual items that only exist inside video games.

Tom Chatfield’s discussion explores why this is occurring, and what we can learn about learning from games.  Rewards, particularly the emotional rewards play a large part in the motivation to succeed in games.  The simple psychology behind it is that people want to succeed, but they also derive pleasure from success.  Games are made engaging by a combination of probability and rewards, and reward schedules are visible for players in order to hook them further into the game they are playing.

These days, video games are everywhere. Many teenagers, especially, are playing them globally. Some involve blood, gore and extreme violence; some do not. Either way, they greatly influence how people think and perceive the world. In this article, the author describes the psychology behind playing these video games: people want to succeed and they get this sensational pleasure from succeeding in a video game. These certain types of games are so addicting because they involve a combination of probability and rewards. Once the gamers achieve this award, they are lured into playing further into the game to achieve more success.

Understanding Middle Schoolers: 4 Tips for Success - Getting Smart | E-Learning | Scoop.it

"Understanding those on the verge of or in the trenches of middle school can be like finishing a complex puzzle only to realize there is a single missing piece — just when you think you have them all figured out, they pivot and leave you just as confused as you started. They sometimes feel like a walking contradiction: they want your love, but would prefer you did not show it in public; what makes them laugh one day, brings them to tears the next; going to school used to be the best part of their day, now they dread it. Whatever the contradiction is in your household, it is important to remember that the journey that these soon to be adults are traveling is a difficult yet AWESOME one. They are in a constant state of learning and discovery and as parents and guardians, we GET to be along for the ride!"

6 Ways to Use the Slight Edge in Your Classroom | Edudemic

6 Ways to Use the Slight Edge in Your Classroom | Edudemic | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Will Smith once told a story from his childhood in which his father broke down the brick wall at his business and told him and his brother to rebuild it. It took them a year, but they finished the job and learned a powerful lesson contained within a memorable metaphor. He explains, “You don’t set out to build a wall. You don’t say ‘I’m going to build the biggest, baddest, greatest wall that’s ever been built.’ You don’t start there. You say, ‘I’m going to lay this brick as perfect as a brick can be laid. You do that every single day and soon you have a wall.” This story from Will Smith captures the very essence of the Slight Edge philosophy that we will discuss in this article. Applying this idea within the classroom will help students develop a strong long term sense of accomplishment that is necessary to achieve their goals.

I cannot consider this framework to comprehensive enough to be used alone for enabling student motivation in Blended Learning Environments. However, it is important to address that motivational strategies that work well for traditional classroom settings may not work for blended learning environments. Mainly, because the change in the learning mode has an affect on what motivates students and what does not.

Finland's Schools Are Overhauling The Way They Do Things. Here's How - Huffington Post | E-Learning | Scoop.it
Finland’s education system, often held up as an exemplary model for the rest of the world, is on the verge of making some major changes.

For years, Finland has led the pack in international test scores, becoming a source of fascination for education policymakers and experts. Now, the country is changing the way it teaches students. Going forward, Finnish schools will be placing less emphasis on individual subjects like math and history, and will instead focus on broader, more interdisciplinary topics. The goal, according to Finnish leaders, is to provide students with the necessary skills for a more technological, global society.

Here are three things you need to know about Finland’s changing education system:

Although, I keep repeating that it is not just the technology that matters, but also the person who uses it that makes a change to pedagogy, people keep thinking that technology alone can make a difference! Used properly, and in proper hands, technology can and does make a big difference. Need I say that technology removes the clutter from pedagogy if used judiciously and planned ahead of time.Having wifi, a projector, a white board to back up as a projection screen, and carrying a laptop or a tablet does  make a big difference to the effectiveness in our teaching strategies. My suggestion to educationists interested in innovation in pedagogy through technology would be that they should develop their own instructional modules. The best way they could do this is to put in the use of technology in their lesson plans, and to embed resources within their Daily lesson plans. If you intend to use technology in your classroom, then plan for it so that it becomes a means to an end and not the end itself!
