A busy, but comprehensive and helpful, guide to using multiple intelligence theory in lesson design.  Using MI  by offering multiple entry points is a great way to differentiate and to allow all learners to engage.

Misconceptions of Teaching with Technology

We all know at least one person who refuses to be drawn to technology. 'It's too difficult', 'I'm too old', 'It's not for me'....the excuses are vast and reasoning fairly simple to understand for technology is at once scary and exciting.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's insight:

It is a hoax!  Great analogy.......life is a musical thing and we should be dancing as we go.  Goals are wonderful and necessary ( to me) but we must be present and stay aware of the ride.  It is a ride.  

 

I have children who are young adults. Praying they heard my message and take their time, experiencing everything by being present. I hope they take as long as they need to be college learners; to stay learners for life.  Racing to the mortgage is an error many of us made.  What a mistake!

Engaging Students Through Social Media: Real World Experience, Creativity... | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Social media has become an essential part of most people’s everyday lives, from checking Facebook and Twitter to posting blogs, Pinterest listings, and uploading YouTube videos. However, and with smartphones making it easier than ever to spend time on social media networks, in what ways can these networks be leveraged to engage and build a foundation for future student learning? While the potential of distraction is there, the right social media teaching strategies can lead to creative learning, and a productive approach to making social media part of ongoing professional development.

What is Blended Learning As Defined by Teachers | Education Elements

What is Blended Learning As Defined by Teachers | Education Elements | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

For those who don’t know the Gestalt Community Schools, they are an outstanding set of charter schools that believe in building better communities through education;  They are achieving excellent results for their students who mainly hail from low-income communities. Innovation abounds at Gestalt’s middle and high schools where students and teachers are using a rotational blended learning model that focuses on closing skill deficits in literacy and numeracy.

 

In this model, students rotate through 3 learning stations:

 

- The first is direct instruction from the teacher,

 

- the second is guided practice in small groups,

 

- and the third is independent digital practice prescribed by the classroom teacher.

How often do you struggle with a student, trying to motivate them to be engaged? The author of this post states "I pirate much of my thinking about motivation, kids’ achievement and success in life from my work with young, elite soccer players." He goes on to say that motivation that is found with young soccer players is also found with students in the classroom, that it "makes a real difference." He also provides a short historical background before sharing 13 motivational techniques, with explanations that explain why some techniques do not work for some children.

WEAC's curator insight, August 7, 2015 9:55 AM

"Because their brains are still developing and malleable, frequent exposure by so-called digital natives to technology is actually wiring the brain in ways very different than in previous generations. What is clear is that, as with advances throughout history, the technology that is available determines how our brains develops."

Larry Heuser's curator insight, August 8, 2015 3:27 PM
