Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman

Reframing Problem Solving with the Appreciative Inquiry 4 D Cycle - Brilliant or Insane - @AngelaStockman | eLearning | Scoop.it
Have you ever noticed how, as leaders, we’re often far more sensitive to people’s weaknesses than we are to their strengths? And once we’ve targeted a weakness, do you ever notice how common it is for us to slide into problem-solving mode?

Lately, I’ve been experiencing daily reminders of how this inhibits us from recognizing what people are good at and helping them use their strengths to serve others. I’m reminded of this every time I watch a teacher slide into editing mode before she provides a learner narrative feedback.  I’m reminded of this every time I watch an administrator rush to make judgments about the observations gathered during a lesson study. And I’m reminded of this every time I listen as two people on opposite sides of an issue fail to practice active listening or check their confirmation bias.

Cool!  I'm an English teacher, and anything that helps to promote literacy and exposure to new and interesting texts gets an A in my book.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, February 5, 5:57 PM

Choose a theme - choose a discussion question - choose a text.

Open-source resources offering a great range for primary through to year 12 students.

Patricia Daniels's curator insight, February 11, 9:07 AM

These texts can be downloaded and are aimed at varying literacy levels. The topics are broad and can be used to promote critical thinking. In an ELT context they could be used to form the basis of discussions. The text worksheets also contain questions to encourage reflection and debate.

Excellent Random Name Selector Apps for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | eLearning | Scoop.it
Below is a list of some very good name selector apps for teachers. The idea of such a list was born out of an email we received from a teacher asking about some recommended apps in this regard. We did some online research (we started with AppCrawlr)  and came up with the titles below. Some of the things you can do with apps below include: randomly pick student names and teams, divide students into different groups, create random teams in class and many more:

Using Brainpop, iPads and Padlet to learn about the Water Cycle ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

Using Brainpop, iPads and Padlet to learn about the Water Cycle ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | eLearning | Scoop.it

Last week Sarah (my teaching partner) and I introduced the water cycle to our students.

 

On Tuesday we started with a Padlet wall to see what our students schema was about the water cycle.  From the Padlet we were able to determine that our students did not have a lot of background knowledge on the topic.  Sarah then read the story All the Water in the World  and made another padlet with all the ways that we use water..."

Teaching in the Age of Minecraft - theatlantic.com | eLearning | Scoop.it
With more than 18 million downloads to date, Minecraft is the best-selling computer game of all time; the game’s free-form structure has made it popular with kids and adults alike. But little by little, teachers, parents, and students have discovered that the game can be used for educational purposes, too. Former teacher Joel Levin and his colleagues founded a startup called TeacherGaming that aims to bring Minecraft into classrooms everywhere, helping students and teachers of all disciplines use their creativity to design projects, free from the kinds of limitations they would face using traditional methods.
