Why schools should be more like organic farms - Business Insider | E-Learning | Scoop.it
The problem with schools isn't that they work poorly. It's that they work too well at doing the wrong thing.

Nine years after Ken Robinson delivered the most-watched TED talk of all time, the education expert is back with a book that answers the talk's titular question, "Do Schools Kill Creativity?"

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices | E-Learning | Scoop.it

Classroom management is a challenging skill which I consistently strive to improve on a regular basis. Often, people believe that managing a classroom that has employed technology requires a whole new approach and skill set. However, I have found that many traditional methods of classroom management readily translate to the technological rich schoolroom – with some slight modification.

"Slackmath is a neat use of QR codes developed by a Geoffrey Slack, a math teacher here in Maine. On Slackmath you will find dozens of PDFs of algebra problems (Geoffrey told me has plans for other subjects in the future). Each PDF contains QR codes next to the mathematics problems. After students complete the math problem they scan the QR code to check their answers and find a video explanation of how to solve the problem. Watch the explanatory video below to see this is in action."

Good Time: 4 Ways to Reawaken Student Engagement - Edutopia | E-Learning | Scoop.it

"Students want to be engaged in class. They really do -- but sometimes other things get in the way of their natural instincts. A few changes to how a teacher runs a classroom can make a huge impact on how engaged students will be in that classroom. It's an issue that every teacher has to face, but it can be addressed in some very simple ways. Here are just a few of my strategies for dealing with low levels of student engagement. They've made a major difference in my classes over the years."

Building Technology Fluency: Preparing students to be Digital Learners

Building Technology Fluency: Preparing students to be Digital Learners | E-Learning | Scoop.it

On a given day, how much time do your students spend working on their fluency? At the elementary level, hours are devoted to reading and speaking fluency. In middle and high school, students read aloud, deliver oral presentations, and write in a variety of formats to improve upon their language fluency. And yet, while we devote a significant portion of every school day to a student's reading, writing and language fluency, how much time is devoted to the development of their technology fluency?

Empathy and social skills: Everyone Should Be Required to See "Inside Out"

Empathy and social skills: Everyone Should Be Required to See "Inside Out" | E-Learning | Scoop.it

 For example, Joy slowly recognized the power of empathy and Sadness' role in that regard.

 

Empathy involves understanding another person's situation from their perspective. As such, you must be able to place yourself in someone else's shoes and feel what they are feeling and without judging them. According to Dr. Brene Brown, Ph.D., LMSW, "empathy moves us to a place of courage and compassion. Through it, we come to realize that our perspective is not the perspective."

 

"Empathy is what makes us human" and yet it is in such limited supply these days, as are other aspects of emotional intelligence (EQ). Social and emotional skills such as empathy are also essential to conflict resolution. According to Daniel Goleman, emotional intelligence consists of self-awareness, managing emotions, empathy and social skills. The good news is that "emotional intelligence competencies are learned - and can be improved at any point in life."

 

"Inside Out" touched upon the fact that people are constantly judging us for everything we do and say and how we react to being judged. It should be noted that empathy is incompatible with shame and judgment.

ISTE 2015: Takeaway Tips for a Library Maker Space | ISTE 2015

ISTE 2015: Takeaway Tips for a Library Maker Space | ISTE 2015 | E-Learning | Scoop.it
The maker movement was front and center at the 2015 ISTE conference—and that’s a good thing for me. After following maker initiatives with great interest for some time now, I have the opportunity to design a maker space this year for 6th–12th grade students at my school, Worcester (MA) Academy.


A search of this year’s program at ISTE, held June 28 to July 1 in Philadelphia, using the term “constructivist learning/maker movement” resulted in 67 related sessions. The ISTE Librarians Network hosted a maker station at their Digital Age Playground and convened a panel on library maker spaces, featuring elementary and middle school librarians, a school administrator, and the coordinator of a public library maker initiative. Vendors and exhibitors demonstrated tools, lessons, and ideas for maker spaces. Meanwhile, a four-hour Maker Playground Wednesday morning drew a huge crowd of attendees.


One of my goals at the conference was to gather ideas and tips to help me create my library’s maker space. Here are some highlights of what I discovered at ISTE."

80 Interesting Ways to Use Google Forms to Support Learning | The Curious Creative | E-Learning | Scoop.it

"I am pleased to relaunch this popular resource form the Interesting Ways series after a little bit of TLC.

 

If you are new to the idea behind the Interesting Ways series, they are open Google Presentations which teachers add their ideas to – one idea, one slide, one image. They have been running for years now and have proven massively helpful to teachers across the world as crowdsourced idea banks to share with colleagues.

 

I have checked through this one on Google Forms and updated the first and last slides – I hope you find the ideas useful and of course please feel free to follow the link below to add your own ideas (jump to the last slide for info on what to do) after all that is what they are here for!"

"There are holidays like Mother’s Day, Earth Day, Thanksgiving Day. Even a Talk-Like-Shakespeare Day. But Friday is Pi Day.

 

Really! It’s official. The date March 14 (that is, 3/14) was designated Pi Day by House Resolution 224 of the first session of the 111th Congress of the United States. It begins “Whereas the Greek letter (Pi) is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter,” and is followed by 11 more whereases before it resolves to support the designation of “Pi Day” to encourage “schools and educators to observe the day with appropriate activities that teach students about Pi and engage them about the study of mathematics.”"

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

 

I’m not saying we should just make the current system better… we should change it into something else.

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading - TeachThought

How To Read A Book: 3 Strategies For Critical Reading - TeachThought | E-Learning | Scoop.it

"If you’re not familiar with Adler and Van Doren’s How To Read A Book, it is worth, well, reading.

 

As you might’ve guessed, these have less to do with decoding, and more to do with comprehension. Actually, more to do with the perspective you approach your reading with. It and How To Read And Why by Harold Bloom are two exceptional starting points for (as well as Wendell Berry’s short essay In Defense Of Literacy for coming to terms with the idea of critical reading, both the why and the how.

Which is where the following sketch note

 

from livinganawesomelife.com comes in. We first shared this graphic on a post that showed examples of sketch notes (a note-taking form near and dear to my heart), but this one seemed worthy of its own post."
