Dean J. Fusto's insight:

Everything you ever wanted to know about PLE (Personal Learning Environment) frameworks. Imagine if every school provide time for teachers and admin to develop a PLE as their own personal, individualized PD statement. I've included this in the Edu-Vision collection at my site http://teachlearnlead.weebly.com/ although I also could categorize this particular PLE presentation under the Linking Literacy category. Excellent piece!

Something experts in all fields tend to do when they’re practicing is to operate outside of their comfort zone and study themselves failing. The best figure skaters in the world spend more of their practice time practicing jumps that they don’t land than lesser figure skaters do. The same is true of musicians. When most musicians sit down to practice, they play the parts of pieces that they’re good at. Of course they do: it’s fun to succeed. But expert musicians tend to focus on the parts that are hard, the parts they haven’t yet mastered. The way to get better at a skill is to force yourself to practice just beyond your limits.

There is a lot of irony in this. Maybe the experts in our public Schools in Alberta should take a pause. It is not that digital technologies should not be used, but rather the way they are used that needs some work in public School.

Good Time: 4 Ways to Reawaken Student Engagement | Edutopia.org | Edu-Vision- Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

Students want to be engaged in class. They really do -- but sometimes other things get in the way of their natural instincts.


A few changes to how a teacher runs a classroom can make a huge impact on how engaged students will be in that classroom. It's an issue that every teacher has to face, but it can be addressed in some very simple ways.


Here are just a few of my strategies for dealing with low levels of student engagement. They've made a major difference in my classes over the years.

Students need far more interesting ways to motivate them then the fear of failing a high stake test. They need strategies that allow them ownership of the learning experience. Learning after all is really not an outsider activity and can only be embraced by the individual.

"Mayor Bill de Blasio has been critical of the signature education strategy of his predecessor, Mike Bloomberg, a strategy that involved closing large, failing high schools and replacing them with smaller specialized schools that offer a more rigorous curriculum and a more personal brand of instruction. But over the last few years, the Bloomberg approach has been vindicated by an innovative, multiyear study showing that the poor, minority students who attend small specialized schools do better academically than students in a control group who attend traditional high schools.

The clearer the 'destination', the less creativity and to a lesser extent innovation can flourish. Yet, we should know our goals. Conundrum? Quite possibly. But not necessarily. Innovation and creativity can be expressed through the journey towards the goal(s). Though demanding of time and energy and a bit messy, innovation is worth the effort at least some of the time.
