I am sure there are more than 21 things. One that jumped out for me was greeting each student daily and listening to them.

 

Not everything is digital which the author points out once in #6. A no-tech day is not just nostalgic. It is about being present in ways we cannot be digitally. A key for teachers will be the ways the integrate various media into their teaching.

* You can group videos together for lessons

* You can monitor student progress

Instead of putting on a video and relaxing, why not put in a quiz or some questions.......
Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, August 20, 2014 2:37 PM

I like the idea of being able to insert questions and comments into videos that will be used with students, either large group or individual. It provides for formative quick checks to ensure students are on track and can generate discussions amongst groups or with the whole class. I also think that, giving students this option, they could create reactions by asking questions and direct their own learning through adding questions or comments to what they are viewing.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 12, 2014 1:32 PM

The one resource suggests teachers are involved in a journey to rethink, reiterate, and assess what is happening in their classrooms. Another key point is the "traditional School" remains a central node in the journey. The two points work together. Without rethinking the role School plays, we continue to run into barriers. Connected learning is a faddish cliche. Rethinking school continuously and what that means means connected learning, with and without digital technologies, serves an important function in teaching and learning.

Humility makes sense. Socrates knew that he was ignorant, and therefor was ready to learn. If I think that I already know a thing, or do not need to know a thing, then my mind is closed to it. All learning starts from a point of ignorance, and then move to greater approximations of understanding until mastery.

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | EdTech | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.


They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

The feedback point is interesting. It is about information given to students relative to their learning goals. Feedback also means feedback for the teacher. What do we mean by student goals? What does this mean in relationship to curricula-as-plans. It suggests that teaching and learning are part of complex conversations (Pinar) and that the curricula-as-lived (Aoki) are important considerations.

Teachers, lets plan to engage parents from the start.  Establishing common language, shared agreements, expectations, etc. from the beginning is a great way to get buy-in from the parents at the start of the school year.  Engage parents immediately and form a sturdy partnership with them, by letting them know how often you'll be contacting them, and that they are welcome in your learning community.
