Measures of Effective Teaching Project Releases Final Research Report

Measures of Effective Teaching Project Releases Final Research Report | educational | Scoop.it

In January 2013, the MET project released its third and final set of findings, which sought to answer three questions from practitioners and policy-makers: Can measures of effective teaching identify teachers who better help students learn?; How much weight should be placed on each measure of effective teaching when combining classroom observations, student surveys, and student achievement gains?; And how can teachers be assured trustworthy results from classroom observations?

There are a few reports here and quite a few other useful documents that can help with this really important issue.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 22, 2013 12:04 PM

I am never sure about the need to apply measures and numbers only to quality of something. It is seems so counter-intuitive. What number do we put on care, compassion, empathy, and honesty in a person?

Vanessa Monell Mercado's comment, June 23, 2013 12:17 PM
I agree, sadly those things cannot be measure with numbers and it seems more and more people disregard their importance in our craft!

I've used Kidblog with my middle school students, and wouldn't hesitate to use it with younger students as well.

It is important to spend about the same amount of time creating the content to share the article on social media as well.This is very important.

Creative Educator - Get Started with Differentiated Instruction

Creative Educator - Get Started with Differentiated Instruction | educational | Scoop.it

Differentiated instruction is not a single strategy or formula. It is a way of thinking about the diversity of learners in our classrooms and acting on this knowledge throughout the process of planning, implementing, and evaluating so that we can promote the deepest possible understanding for all students.

i like this.......nice article....

Freek Kraak's curator insight, August 12, 2013 10:34 AM

Interessant. Ik interesseer me erg voor kennis-/informatieoverdracht. Aardige poging. Ik vraag me af of dit ooit compleet kan zijn, zoals hier al staat: 'not a single strategy or formula'. Maar ik zou mij eerst moeten verdiepen in betekenis en reikwijdte van de gebruikte termen!

great idea for first week back to school to help to know your students

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | educational | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

Many clear points within the article...Education is messy.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 11, 2013 12:18 PM

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

Teaching and Learning with Minecraft: Liam O’Donnell | DMLcentral

Teaching and Learning with Minecraft: Liam O’Donnell | DMLcentral | educational | Scoop.it

Just as blocks have no inherent curricular power other than experience in making big things by stacking smaller things in the right order, the ability of computer-controlled pixels to convey important knowledge depends entirely on what (and how) they are used. That’s where teachers come in…and why some are beginning to use an inexpensive online game to teach everything from philosophy to biology: Minecraft.

Peter Fruhmann's curator insight, July 11, 2013 3:42 AM

An appealing concept: a game that could help teachers and pupils / students with not only conveying knowledge but also with the development of social skills and collaborative storytelling. Interesting article, there is also the mentioning of the developmet of a wiki for educational purposes.

Since this is becoming very important to what we do with the Common Core, this seems a good read.

Changing literacies for a digital future. 

David Cook's curator insight, August 7, 2014 10:34 PM

I found this to be a lot of bark with no bite.  But that's may be because I'm already sold on the need for digital literacy in education, and am much more interested in reading about specific content, frameworks, curriculum, etc.
