Great advice for crafting effective bios on social media platforms...

Kathy Shelburne's curator insight, July 23, 2014 11:04 AM

Make your bio unique and avoid those overused words and phrases. Focus on what you've done not what you are capable of doing! Be funny and memorable.

In this new age of social media, how you display your character on your social channels will have a lot to do with how people trust you and want to engage... Showing true identity is essential to creating that  trust!

I know a high school student who is quite amazing. She’s keen. She’s hungry. She wants to be challenged. She’s also bored out of her mind. Frustrated. Angry. Because the truth is, she’s just jumpin...

11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom - TeachThought

11 Teaching Strategies For Spotting The Blind Spots In Your Classroom - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it

"When Stanford Professor Lee Shulman was first enmeshed in the research that led to Board certification of teachers by NBPTS, I asked him – in a hotel bathroom, of all places – what interesting findings were turning up about great teachers as compared to the rest. He replied: “Well, you might not find this such a big deal, but a big indicator is the degree to which a teacher accurately describes what happens in her classroom.”"

The 5 Biggest Skills Modern Teachers Need - Edudemic

The 5 Biggest Skills Modern Teachers Need - Edudemic | Education | Scoop.it

"Many schools only have basic requirements for hiring a teacher. Generally, they are expected to have their teaching certificate, a degree, and pass a background check. This may, indeed, qualify a person to become a teacher, but not necessarily the most effective teacher they could potentially be. The best modern teachers – the ones who consistently show the most learning gains among their students – are the ones who go beyond their degree and develop some other very important skills."

What if thinking is underrated? | Krissy Venosdale {Venspired}

What if thinking is underrated? | Krissy Venosdale {Venspired} | Education | Scoop.it

"What if the most underrated skill in school is thinking? I know, that sounds crazy. But how often do we tell kids what they are going to learn, tell them what to make, tell them what tool to use, tell them when to finish, tell them what questions to find the answers to. What if we stopped telling them things? What if we realized that knowing everything as the “teacher” and being the “expert” in the room is overrated. Because thinking? Asking questions? Growing? Developing ideas? Creating? Solving problems by digging in and pushing through the hard stuff that lies between a problem and a solution? That’s learning."

How To Use A Rubric Without Stifling Creativity - Grant Wiggins - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it

 "It was not that long ago when I did a workshop where the staff from the Dodge Foundation (who were funding my work at the time) took me aside at the break because they were concerned with my constant use of a term that they had never heard of – rubric. Those of us promoting their use over the past 20 years can now smile and take satisfaction in the fact that the term is now familiar and the use of rubrics is commonplace world-wide."
