Collaboration Matters

Collaboration Matters | EPICT Italia Review | Scoop.it

Blogger's note: This post focuses on the importance of integrating collaboration into classroom practice. In my next post, I'll talk about strategies for successful facilitation of collaborative work...

 

Learning is a social process, and the learning process is deepened when ideas are challenged and learners are pushed to produce work that surpasses their expectations of what they can do.

 

That said, working in groups is a continually challenging process. It is important that students aren't forced to work together on projects where collaboration isn't necessary or beneficial to the final product.

2) le categorie usate per valutare il lavoro di podcasting dei ragazzi: dice l'autore "bisognava valutare una pluralità di abilità/competenze" . proprio quello che dobbiamo fare anche nella nostra scuola italiana./https://docs.google.com/document/d/1hnzI9r6NNwhLDv-LHV0yb72CK5C6d3-xt_k_5zfpuDI/edit?pli=1

I like the image with two students have a conversation without a screen. It can be done with digital technology, but the tried and true is good for students. It humanizes the other in what is often a virtual world.

Teacher collaboration is the key to future success - we must find more ways to help this process to flourish

Allan Shaw's curator insight, January 23, 1:37 PM

"John Dewey believed that education must be " . . . a process of living and not a preparation for future living." This powerful idea is a helpful reminder of the rich, insightful growth and knowledge that can come from deep, collaborative learning experiences."

Therefore, it could be said true learning is about acting out the theory, of rhetoric and reality remaining close, of adults modelling for young people appropriate learning attitudes and behaviours, as those young people, if forced to choose, will copy what you do rather than do what you say!

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | EPICT Italia Review | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Via Gust MEES
Epict Italia's insight:

Ecco cosa consiglia il collega d'oltreoceano: 

Stay Local > cerca delle occasioni di formazione/ condivisione vicino a casa
Connect Online > controlla la rete con le sue risorse
Attend an EdCamp > frequenta dei seminari (che chiamano edcamp...ne organizziamo uno???) 
Present or Volunteer > proporsi come autore o volontario nei congressi, worksho ecc: potrebbero esserci delle facilitazioni
Pick Up a Book & Connect with the Author > usare la rete (loro dicono Twitter) per chiacchierare con l'autore del libro che abbiamo comprato
Invest in Yourself > Joe investe il 2-5% del suo stipendio in formazione...ma quanto guadagna (verrebbe da chiedergli?).

If we cannot show our students that we can trust what they do, then we are really are missing an important piece in this whole process of education. There are other favorable alternatives to the use of drones.

31 iPad Apps For A Smoother-Running Classroom

 

Organization is about resources, priority, and consistency.

Workflow is about clarity, tools, and consistency.

And classroom management is about relationships, trust, and consistency.

 

Which brings us to the following collection of apps to help your classroom run more smoothly.


Via Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.
Epict Italia's insight:

Ecco le attività che l'autore identifica come topiche nell'attività di insegnamento e quindi le app che supportano (in ambeinte Mac) queste attività

- Gestione della classe (registro delle attività)

- Prendere appunti 

- Valutare (registro dei voti)

- Comunicazione (docente>studenti - studente-studente)

- Organizzazione delle risorse, dei quaderni,...

- Gestione delle attività

L’istruzione riparte... le perplessità sulla formazione dei docenti - Professione docente - Education 2.0

L’istruzione riparte... le perplessità sulla formazione dei docenti - Professione docente - Education 2.0 | EPICT Italia Review | Scoop.it
Professione docente: Il decreto legge “L’istruzione riparte” prevede la formazione obbligatoria dei docenti che diventa prescrittiva non solo per l’attività d’aggiornamento, ma anche per la materia sulla quale dovrebbe applicarsi.
Epict Italia's insight:

Il commento dell'autore è che la formazione per il MInistero non è pensata per il potenziamento della professionalità del docente, ma per rispondere a delle emergenze sociali di cui si fa carico il docente. 

Quindi non la formazione per rispondere all'esigenza del professionista di dare un servizio sempre migliore, ma la formazione per rispondere all'esigenza dell'"azienda" Nazione.

...non so. Forse essendo Scuola pubblica il punto di vista ministeriale è quello giusto. Perché il docente si sente una volta di più "non guardato" da quanto affermato dal Ministero?

Lindsay Ahmann's curator insight, January 12, 5:50 PM

Since most people are on the internet the majority of their day whether it is social media, work, email, or research, wouldn't it be so much easier to research things for school right on your phone and not get scrambled answers? YES! most teens use their smartphones to do their homework anyway, so why not make it a more reliable answer by having a certain app for it on their phone. Yes, it will increase the time they spend on their phones, but maybe it will make them learn more while their on them instead of being on Facebook or Instagram.
