How to Get Started with Twitter Chats - Simplek12

How to Get Started with Twitter Chats - Simplek12 | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
One great thing about Twitter chats is you don’t necessarily need to participate in order to benefit from the conversation. If you missed a particular chat but you’d like to see what others were sharing, you can always search for the chat info and see the ideas and resources shared. Along the same lines, if you are new to technology and aren’t comfortable participating right away, you can always hang back and simply watch the chat before jumping in yourself. Soon enough you’ll be contributing resources and ideas of your own!

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

The Key to Improving Teaching and Leading

Making a daily practice of visiting classrooms, observing briefly, and talking with teachers has the greatest potential to improve student learning, help professionals grow, and help schools become more effective learning organizations.
I've come to this conclusion by studying an unlikely role model: Toyota. At Toyota, continuous improvement and employee development happen primarily through interactions between mentors and mentees—employees and their supervisors—on the factory floor or wherever the work is being done. We might assume that leadership in a manufacturing company would be rigidly top-down, numbers-driven, and directive toward frontline staff. But Toyota's focus on conversation is precisely what sets it apart from its competitors.

Bringing Joy to Math Class @Edutopia

Bringing Joy to Math Class @Edutopia | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
It’s difficult to be a teacher today. Between covering all the state standards, preparing students for state testing, conducting data analyses of student learning and our own progress as teachers, and providing evidence for evaluations, we have a lot on our plates—and I didn’t even mention preparing lessons, let alone teaching them. It’s even more difficult to be a teacher of mathematics, that being a subject that students rarely find interesting and engaging. However, I’ve found some techniques to make math joyful and interesting to students, while still covering the standards and adhering to all the mandates of education today.

Makers in the Classroom: A How To Guide (EdSurge News)

Makers in the Classroom: A How To Guide (EdSurge News) | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
You see it everywhere in K-12. Kindergarteners design toys for their friends to practice empathy, while learning to use a saw and glue-gun along the way. Second graders deepen their understanding of character traits while designing and sewing puppets to represent a character in a folk-tale. In high school physics, students make wind turbines in order to internalize an understanding of how magnetism can create electricity.

The “it” I’m referring to is “Making,” and simply put, Making is any activity where people create something, often with their hands.

I often define Making by looking at what people bring to the Maker Faire, which does include more technical aspects like 3D printing, physical computing and programming. But Making also includes woodworking, growing food, making art and crafts.

The Ultimate List: 50 Strategies For Differentiated Instructio

The Ultimate List: 50 Strategies For Differentiated Instructio | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
Differentiation is a simple idea that’s less simple to actuate.

Differentiation is a rational approach to meeting the needs of individual learners, but actually making it possible on a daily basis in the classroom can be challenge.

In ‘What Differentiation Is–And Is Not: The Definition Of Differentiation,’ we recall ed-guru Carol Ann Tomlinson’s overview of differentiation as ‘adapting content, process, or product according to a specific student’s readiness, interest, and learning profile.’

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, May 12, 12:33 PM

La realidad virtual es y será una herramienta educativa muy poderosa que permita la inmersión total y por tanto una experiencia multisensorial cuasi real en un ambiente diseñado para el aprendizaje. La gran limitante aún son los costos del desarrollo de los contenidos digitales. Allí aparece su competidor (aunque en realidad son complementadores) : la realidad aumentada que puede incorporar directamente a la realidad elementos digitales que hagan de cada espacio físico una experiencia de aprendizaje mucho más excitante.

I did several things in using rubrics. First, I spent a considerable amount of time with the various curicula (9 to 11 core subjects). I read and considered what students were being asked to learn. I interpreted and prepared rubrics through that lens. Second, I edited each time I used a rubric. I discovered new insights. Third, I went over the rubrics with students which informed point 2. This provided them with insights as they began an activity and they were comfortable asking questions and making observations along the way.

Where Good Ideas Come From & How Your Classroom Can Respond

Where Good Ideas Come From & How Your Classroom Can Respond | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
Steven Johnson explains in the video Where Good Ideas Come From that “Good ideas come from the collision of smaller hunches,” a nod to both revision and timing. Among other things, then, good ideas require connectivity, time, iteration, and the macro recognition of systems & patterns. The ultimate lesson, Johnson explains, is simple.

“Chance favors a connected mind.”

5 Takeaways For Your Classroom

1. Create daily opportunities for students to connect in the presence of a pressing need (or need to know)

2. Resist the temptation to tightly package “instruction,” but rather provide diverse opportunities for students to demonstrate understanding both before and after open-ended collaboration

3. Support students in metacognitive thinking, helping them identify their own “hunches”; model how hunches converge in “the real world”

4. Use concept-mapping, journaling, and other simple tools to help illuminate what thinking and creativity “are,” where they come from

5. Consider swapping out direct instruction–>collaboration–>assessment patterns for more frequent acts of self-directed learning
