"Once I believed that libraries were places where people went for books and reference materials.

Now I believe that libraries are learning opportunities that promote pathways for people to “search, connect, communicate and make.”

Please do not miss superintendent Pam Moran’s post today about the possibilities of 21st c school libraries.

Please share her vision with at least one other administrator.

Carol Dweck: 'The whole idea of growth mindset is to say yes they can' | Education Leadership | Scoop.it
“Carol Dweck is education’s guru of the moment. The US academic’s “growth mindset” theory has taken schools on both sides of the Atlantic by storm. When TES met the Stanford University psychology professor at the Festival of Education at Wellington College last week, the mere mention of her name was sending teachers into shivers of excitement. But the woman herself is refreshingly modest about the success of her philosophy. “You never know how influential your idea is going to be,” she says, smi”

“As online learning becomes a viable modality for learning, determining how to engage all students in meaningful learning activities, whether it be discussion, group work or other, will require further research and exploration. The starting point I believe, is viewing quiet online students in a different light, not as a passive, unresponsive individual but as a students with something to say and contribute even in a world that can’t stop talking.”

Why online teaching liberates ESL teachers

Why online teaching liberates ESL teachers | Education Leadership | Scoop.it

Inspired by her talk at Innovate ELT, guest blogger Jaime Miller of English Success Academy looks at the reasons and pluses for getting into teaching online.

During one of the mini-plenaries at Innovate ELT 2015, in Barcelona, Spain, Duncan Foord referenced a fear in the industry: that EdTech will render teachers obsolete.

Nothing could be further from the truth, and I say that with five years of experience teaching ESL online, and three years of sourcing 100% of my income from private Skype exams lessons for TOEFL iBT (without touching services like iTalki, WizIQ, or CourseEra). As our industry moves forward, teaching will inevitably change – but teachers will remain as essential as they always have been.

At Innovate ELT, I opened a discussion of the future of teaching ESL online with an observation about many English teachers and expats around the world:

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 15, 2015 10:23 PM

Take a look at this visual that describes the learning progression. It looks at three questions as the starting point:

* What's the learning outcome for the lesson?

* How will I know if students have achieved it?

* How will I check if students have achieved it?

A variety of ideas are shared for each of these questions...short and sweet, and great for visual learners.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:21 PM

Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students.

Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense.

9 things educators should tweet about

9 things educators should tweet about | Education Leadership | Scoop.it
- - Be yourself and show people that you are real! Tweet about what inspires you and what happens in your day to day life as an educator - Create don’t consume by sharing images – people love to see what your classroom, school, project, activity etc. looks like so they can get inspiration - Create don’t consume by sharing links to articles that you write or articles that you have read. Nearly every educator I know loves a good nighttime read - Quotes and thoughts related to education (always remember to link to the author) - Ask questions and give answers – tweet responses directly to people and ask questions if you are unsure - Get involved in Twitter Chats – tweet your answers to questions and your thoughts to other educators tweets - Support other educators by giving a ‘favourite’ or a ‘retweet’ to their posts. This shows that you appreciate and enjoy what they have tweeted - Be positive – tell people how much you love their work, demonstrate positivity in everything you tweet. You can still be constructive and be passionate but always be respectful – like we tell our students “If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it!” - Suggest other educators to follow – you can do this at any stage but I like to make use of #FF (Follow Friday) where people share their favourite connections
