Those of us that have been teaching the gifted realize the importance of teaching critical thinking strategies for the benefit of all students. The socratic method is a fabulous tool towards that end.

Fulton Schools Professional Learning's curator insight, October 7, 2013 8:12 AM

All students benefit from learning critical thinking strategies and skills. This article highlights how teachers are being trained to make that an integral part of classroom pedagogy.

HI Susan.
Thanks for sharing. You share many great things. I want to share this link with you that I feel fits this post. "On The Media" does an annual report on the state of book publishing. I thought the 2011 podcast was remarkable and insightful. The 2012 was almost as good. Here's the link. They create a great podcast. I am happy that I stumbled upon it.

Understand: Time spent outside the classroom | Duke TIP | Education - For Primary School students | Scoop.it

Parents and educators often worry about how gifted students spend their time in the classroom. Rightly so, given that gifted students can often find standard curricula easy or boring. And adolescents in the U.S. typically have six to eight hours of free time each day. This is not a trivial amount of time and should not be ignored by parents of the gifted. A recent study by Duke TIP looked at exactly this

Nichelle Plivelic's curator insight, February 20, 2014 5:59 PM

Some children on the autism spectrum lack an interest in teamwork, as they'd rather do things themselves in the way they want to. For this reason, it's important to show them-and other kids, not only those with special needs-why it's good to work as a team when with others.

 

Ways to do this include having them do activities in which it is easier to work as a team than an individual. Another way is to reward them for working together and providing reasons why teamwork is necessary.

I think if departments reviewed their faculty, it would become clear to them which teachers should *not* be forced into using technology in the classroom.  Questionably, if those teachers cannot teach the assigned material any longer, they may be driven to learn it in order to keep their jobs, but honestly, if teachers don't possess these traits in today's world, the only thing they should probably be driven to is a different job....

The next evolution of schools: Highlights from our chat with Will Richardson

The next evolution of schools: Highlights from our chat with Will Richardson | Education - For Primary School students | Scoop.it

What will schools look like in 25 years? Educator and parent Will Richardson sees profound changes beginning to bubble up in classrooms around the world. In the past, knowledge was bounded — both in books and in classrooms. But today, the internet provides nearly endless learning opportunities for anyone who is interested. Which means that education should no longer focus on dates and facts, all just a Google search away, but instead on critical thinking.
