Revisiting the Persistent Teacher Diversity Problem

Revisiting the Persistent Teacher Diversity Problem | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it

"There are obvious challenges to building a diverse teacher workforce. Increasing teacher diversity means taking critical steps to fix the leaky teacher pipeline, which means expanding the teacher candidate pool to include more people of color and creating pathways for them to enter the profession. It also means paying and supporting these teachers adequately once they enter the classroom. Thankfully, groups are coalescing around this issue." This resource was discovered on the NEA edCommunities Digital Tools & Learning 3-5 Community.

Are Schools Going Overboard in Blocking Social Media Sites?

"Librarians, teachers and principals increasingly voice opposition to blocking social websites, noting that schools have an obligation to teach students how to use social media responsibly. They say that though the Children’s Internet Protection Act (a law put in place by the federal government 2000) requires schools to filter content such as pornography or other explicit subjects, districts have gone too far, filtering websites with valuable learning opportunities using the law as justification."

New Study of New York City's Massive 'Community Schools' Program Paints Encouraging Picture

New Study of New York City's Massive 'Community Schools' Program Paints Encouraging Picture | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it

"Overall, the report paints an encouraging picture of the community schools program. Though the authors note that it’s too early to draw conclusions about the program’s success, they generally say that it’s on the right track.

"They also repeatedly cite school-level leaders who said they can see a real difference in their schools."

“The idea of supporting the entire family, as opposed to just looking at the child, it does so much,” one principal is quoted as saying. “It says to the family, we’re here to do whatever we can to work with you to improve your child’s academic success.”

What Every Teacher Should Know About ... Memory

What Every Teacher Should Know About ... Memory | Education Today and Tomorrow | Scoop.it

Two techniques were rated as being very effective for improving long-term memory:

"Practice testing. This is where students have to generate an answer to a question. It can include past papers, multiple choice questions or doing practice essay answers. It’s a technique that has been extensively researched and is consistently found to be one of the most effective ways to improve learning.


"Distributed practice. Sometimes referred to as “spacing”, distributed practice involves doing little bits of work often instead of a lot all at once (ie cramming). Essentially, students remember more if they spread out their learning; for instance, one hour a day for eight days rather than eight hours in one day."

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 17, 2:43 PM
There have been universities that admitted students based on portfolios i.e. Harvard. I used rubrics, which are not grade-based. Rubrics are a feedback tool that helps teachers and students understand progress being made. I fussed over my rubrics each time I used them, making changes to better capture progress and not just a one-time event such as a grade.
