Finding the ‘Sweet Spot’ of Teaching and Learning

Finding the ‘Sweet Spot’ of Teaching and Learning | Education Leadership | Scoop.it
Avid golfers and baseball players often talk about the elusive “sweet spot.” Find it, and you can make the ball go exactly where you want it to go, almost effortlessly. There’s a sweet spot to teaching, too.
David Baker's insight:
The steps in this article are a good reminder when thinking about classroom dynamics. JBalance of power – Although teachers have the final say, what are some things you can do to empower students? Course content – How do you balance the need for your students to know certain facts with the desire for higher level thinking as well? Role of the teacher – Are you the “sage on the stage” or the “guide on the side?” Or can you play both roles depending on the situation? The responsibility for learning – Students have to be willing to learn, but it’s up to the instructors to create the type of climate where this happens more readily. Are you willing to cede some control by offering your students more choices? Purpose and processes of evaluation – Do you offer self-check quizzes or allow student input on low-stakes assignments? - See more at: http://www.facultyfocus.com/articles/philosophy-of-teaching/finding-the-sweet-spot-of-teaching-and-learning/#sthash.IItZIxhs.dpuf

When telling a story for business or otherwise, what you leave out can be as important as what you put in.

Michael Williams StoryCoaching's curator insight, October 5, 3:11 PM

Great storytellers know that by leaving out a lot of unnecessary description, you engage your listener's imagination. "Suggest, don't tell." Give your audience the silence and space to engage with the story. If not, they become passive as you are doing all the imaginative work for them. This article gives some media examples of this in practice.

• Change questions from one type to another.

Prioritize the Questions

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education

Howard Gardner, creator of ‘multiple intelligences’ theory, launches new project on ‘good’ education | Education Leadership | Scoop.it
“Armed with a set of criteria drawn from different disciplines, I identified seven separate intelligences. All human beings possess these seven intelligences, but we differ from one another in which are strong; and in any case, strength or weakness in one (say spatial intelligence) does not predict strength or weakness in another (say, interpersonal or musical intelligence).”I would now add a few more intelligences to the list, and others, most famously Daniel Goleman, have proposed yet other intelligences like emotional intelligence. I am no longer invested in my particular set of intelligences. For me, the important advance is that a multiplicity of intelligences has been acknowledged—wits, rather than wit.In this era of succinct messaging, I’ve created a twitter-short formula: Multiple Wits and Good Grits Lead to a Success Beyond Selfies.Learn more:- http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching/?tag=Howard-GARDNER
