3 Reasons Why Communities Help Professionals Learn

3 Reasons Why Communities Help Professionals Learn | Eye on Education | Scoop.it
The self-employed life can be a little lonely sometimes. The more work you put into your business, the less it seems you can relate to anyone else.
Shelley Labiosa's insight:

Connections can be made to the teaching profession.This sentence stopped me in my tracks: "All it takes is one person – or worse, one lost client – to come along and show you how little you know." We've all had that one student we just couldn't reach, and we won't forget him or her. Whether it was one in our career, or one each year, or one in each class...we've all been there. That "one lost client" is the one child who makes me realize I need help from my colleagues.

Several Ways To Differentiate Instruction - Carol Tomlinson via Classroom Q&A

Several Ways To Differentiate Instruction - Carol Tomlinson via Classroom Q&A | Eye on Education | Scoop.it

Carol Tomlinson

 

"My view of differentiation is still much the same. It's not a mystery formula that only a few can understand. It's not a series of mandatory instructional strategies. It's not a recipe. It's problem solving on behalf of kids. One step at a time, all teachers can do that. Working with like-minded colleagues makes the journey smoother and more rewarding."

 

Carol's Suggestions:

 

1) Start small. Start with one subject or one class. Start with 10 minutes a day or 15 minutes a week. Just start.

2) Study your students. The more you see them as distinct individuals--the more you understand them as human beings--the clearer your motivation will be.

3) Use formative assessments regularly

4) Invest time in thinking through classroom routines--giving directions, handling transitions, starting and stopping tasks, using materials effectively. Envision how you want things to work and help your students do the same.

5) Make the students your partners in creating a classroom that works well for everyone. Get their input on which approaches work best for them.

 

"Differentiation just asks of us what we commend for our students: flexible thinking, intellectual risk-taking, problem-solving--and a deepening sense of humanity."

Educational Technology Buzzwords

Educational Technology Buzzwords | Eye on Education | Scoop.it

Education buzzwords have for a long time driven me insane as we spend our lives in schools latching on to phrase after phrase that tries to make us sound more knowledgeable without actually being more knowledgeable. I fear sometimes us “tech geeks” in schools ( definitely me included) are getting caught in the same trap as we move from one innovation to the next just to look more tech savvy than the next guy. This is a long list of edtech trends and pedagogies. It can seem quite daunting to the uninitiated and we can scare them off trying something really useful if keep pushing for more change.
