7 Habits Of Highly-Effective Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology

7 Habits Of Highly-Effective Teachers Who Effectively Use Technology | EducationK |

"In most ways, teachers that use technology in the classroom aren’t much different than those that don’t. Any teacher worth their salt assesses, and then revises planned instruction based on data from those assessments... But using technology in the classroom–and using it effectively–might require some slight adjustments on the part of the teacher to sustain the effort, creative problem-solving, and innovation required to actually improve learning through the use of technology. (And great administrators, too.)"

Amy's insight:

How many of these habits do you have?

Drora Arussy's curator insight, May 14, 2013 8:39 AM

The most important one to me is number 7. Teachers care and want to find the most effective ways to teach the children. Of course, as educators we are facilitators and must adapt and be flexible, but without the basic desire to enhance education for our students there is no possibility of success.

Drora Arussy's comment, May 16, 2013 12:59 PM
One of the things that I have always encouraged and include in any training, is the teacher as facilitator. As such, they automatically incorporate many of these qualitities, including embracing change, flexibility, adapt to situations, etc. Technology is there enhance good teaching and many of the primary skills are the same. Whick habits do you possess?

The MOOC | EducationK |
Duncan McCue looks at the MOOC, otherwise known as, the Massive Open Online Course. They are changing the way teachers teach and the way students learn because they can fill a classroom with a billion brains.

Interesting video on MOOCs. It's beginning to look like anything that is online education is now being called a MOOC. It's like an echo from 20 years ago when e-learning started taking off. Seems like a lot of people are really missing the point.

This is not new - I taught the International Writing Exchange (IWE) from 1993, but technology allows much more nowadays. Go for it and learn whatever your heart desires!  Go for challenging courses though, not a book on the Web!!

Information and knowledge is there. Only you decide what to make of it.

Sharing knowledge will always give you back more than what you give.

Definition Of Digital Citzenship

Definition Of Digital Citzenship | EducationK |

Revising that might more clearly articulate the differences between physical and digital communities, so a decent definition of digital citizenship then might be “Self-monitored participation that reflects conscious interdependence with all (visible and less visible) community members”

Unfortunately we find that what happens the most, especially in schools is that educators and administrators tend to shy away from this responsibility and limit their teaching to the way they have been taught, thus excluding all the elements that are now pronouncing us as digital citizens in a society.
Sieg Holle's curator insight, May 10, 2013 12:15 PM

In the digital world we are human beings -free of the  many artificial restrictions and other special interest agendas and use our free will to engage our ideas and actions. It is natural - people can chose who they want to communicate with  It is a positive MOOC of that will expand the world into a new age of freedom and abundance .
