Creative Educator - A Good Prompt is Worth 1,000 Words

Creative Educator - A Good Prompt is Worth 1,000 Words | East Professional Development | Scoop.it

 

With the following four variables in place, a learner can exceed expectations.

 

1. A good prompt, motivating challenge, or thoughtful question
2. Appropriate materials
3. Sufficient time
4. Supportive culture, including a range of expertise

The genius of this approach is that it is self-evident. If you lack one of the four elements, it is obvious what needs to be done.

Marita Thomson's curator insight, January 30, 2013 3:46 PM

Critical Friends: The Benefits of Instructional Coaches

Critical Friends: The Benefits of Instructional Coaches | East Professional Development | Scoop.it
Instructional coaches seem to be a new phenomenon in schools. Their job is to help educators become better teachers. They observe teachers teaching, go over instructional data, and model good teaching practices. As much as this may be new for schools, the core of instructional coaching has been around for a long time.

Is there a right and a wrong way to teach social media in schools? Some administrators think so. Many schools across the country have banned the use... “The fact is, social media isn’t technology in the lives of our kids, but an essential aspect of their world. Social media isn’t ‘new’ anymore,” said teacher and education consultant Dan Haesler on his blog. “We can’t continue pretending that it is, and using this as an excuse for not addressing it. ===> And by addressing it I do not mean banning it!” <===
