The Power of Teacher Collaboration | education k-12 | Scoop.it

Teaching is simultaneously one of the hardest and one of the most rewarding jobs in the world. We often say that students make it worth it, but there’s something else that can make or break your happiness as a teacher: your colleagues.

So true. I collaborate with four colleagues on our Humanities curriculum, a combined ELA and Ancient History class, and the growth in quality of the curriculum has been incredible. We have 3-4 hours per week of collaboration time, and we use that time fully. Collaboration is a force multiplier.

7 Tenets of Creative Thinking | education k-12 | Scoop.it

In school, we learn about geniuses and their ideas, but how did they get those ideas? What are the mental processes, attitudes, work habits, behaviors, and beliefs that enable creative geniuses to view the same things as the rest of us, yet see something different?

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

One of the unstated aspects of the emerging hidden curriculum is that we are connected 24/7 to our work. We learn this in school. Furthermore, we now provide our employers with our devices to do their work.

Apptimate's curator insight, April 22, 2014 6:36 AM

This infographic is about BYOD in education, but I think it is applicable to most enterprise BYOD strategies.

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’ | education k-12 | Scoop.it
The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.

 

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

 

Read more, a MUST!!!

Howard Gardner asks teachers to Drop the term “styles.” It will confuse others and it won’t help either you or your students.

Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 6:09 AM
Of course they aren't. They are the raw material that come together and result in learning styles. I've got to read this :)
Shafali Anand's comment, October 25, 2013 6:18 AM
Read it. I've always found Gardner's MI theory interesting - because it's a great equalizer - when I was growing up logical-mathematical intelligence (in Gardner's terminology) was given the highest importance - art, music, sports etc. were considered talents/gifts - and not intelligences. Gardner made them more respectable by calling them intelligences. This is why I too can call myself intelligent today - visually and spatially intelligent. Ahem!
