Creative Educator - Five Habits of Great Coaches | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
Coaches do not spend most of their time lecturing or even “front-loading.” Coaches give players opportunities to practice and apply skills in a contextually appropriate situation, providing just-in-time feedback, asking targeted and specific questions, clarifying what is happening, and providing information relevant to what is happening at specific moments.

Addressing Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students.  When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways.  It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do

Universal Skills All Learners Should Know How to Do | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

"This morning I was thinking about the things that all young people should know how to do regardless of income, geographical location, life goals, etc.  I started a list – see below.  Some have “always” been true – some are unique to this century of learning.  Let me know of any other universal skills you believe young people should know how to do."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, December 6, 2014 9:48 PM

What do young people need to know? Jackie Gerstein provides a great visual as well as a list of 18 ideas, and each has a link for additional information. She also requests that you send her additional ideas.

After you review the list you might consider how many of these skills are taught in your school, or consider which should be taught in school.
Five of her ideas are below. Click through to the post for the rest.

* How to be a self-directed learner – finding and using resources (both face-to-face and online) to learn and improve personal interests

* How to evaluate websites and online tools for credibility

* How to work in mixed-age groups

* How to code

* How to set and achieve goals

Kimberly House's curator insight, December 7, 2014 12:16 PM

The best question she asks is 'Which are taught in school? Which should be?' These are great questions to explore as a staff in looking at these universal skills.
