I love that I didn't see anything on that list about being an expert in your content.  It is all about relationships and classroom management.

A blog about managing productive group work in the classroom.
Gabrielle Marquette's insight:

Someone needed help with groups today and it reminded me how hard this is for many teachers especially new ones.  Teachers can't afford not to have kids working in groups.

Our iPad Classroom: The One Where We Switch to Front Row

Our iPad Classroom: The One Where We Switch to Front Row | education | Scoop.it

"My 4th graders have been using the newly revamped Khan Academy website on our iPads since Mid-November. Things have been going great and I have seen a fantastic, better than average, increase in MAP Math scores from August to January.

Both Khan and Front Row are FREE and both give teachers access to "More Data About Their Students Than They Could Ever Use.""

Putting the Game Back In Gamification | education | Scoop.it
Gamification has been both extolled and derided by commentators. Some champion it as a revolutionary new way to build customer loyalty or for employees to perform menial tasks with a new level of e...
Gabrielle Marquette's insight:

My philosophy about extrinsic motivation is that it is okay to use if it is used to help students experience success and ultimately become more independent.  If it won't lead to independence, it isn't worth it.  This was an interesting point about gamification.

Game on? Or game over? [PDF], a brief research report from the U Washington Information School, summarizes some of the findings from the TASCHA report on computer skills acquisition.

Gabrielle Marquette's insight:

If we changed our culture around making mistakes in the classroom then we wouldn't have to worry about our test scores.  Mistakes are how we learn.  The more, the better.
