6 Things New Teachers Remind Me to Do Every Year

6 Things New Teachers Remind Me to Do Every Year | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
You can usually spot a new teacher a mile away.  There is just something about the way they talk about the upcoming year, how they hold themselves, and even the very air that surrounds them.  So much joy, so much enthusiasm, mixed with a certain air of fear.  Right now seems to be the time where people start talking about all the mistakes new teachers make their first year and pass on advice to them whether they need it or not.  Yet, every year I learn so much from the new teachers I meet.  Every year they teach lessons to me.

10 signs that Technology is working for your students

10 signs that Technology is working for your students | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
How do you measure success when it comes to integrating educational technology into the classroom?

Do you use a result-oriented testing strategy or are you in tune with the multiple nuances of engagement that go so much deeper than the one-dimensional yawndom of traditional testing procedures?

In my experience of life and teaching, I feel that whatever we measure analytically is always influenced by social and emotional subtexts. I prefer to be in tune with social & emotional dynamics, which, in turn, yield the ‘harder facts’ we require to measure success. Group synergy, rapport, special moments, spontaneous expression, and ‘aha’ moments all give you the gut feeling that all is well in the classroom.

30 Universal Strategies For Learning - TeachThought

30 Universal Strategies For Learning - TeachThought | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
So how can this help you as an educator? Use them as thinking prompts or discussion cues. Consider them as starting points for project-based learning. Have students use them as “empty shells” to fill with self-selected learning topics to create learning paths of their own. Use them for Genius Hour.

The big idea is that these kinds of “brain actions” are not only the kinds of tasks you can use to create assignments, but more importantly are the kinds of acts that promote inquiry-based understanding. So rather than start with a topic–fractions, metaphors, or racism–you can simply insist on the cognitive action itself. Learners can choose topics of their own, or you can offer a range of topics.
