Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers?

Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers? | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it

I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff

Developing a Growth Mindset in Teachers and Staff | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
An idea that is beginning to gain a lot of favour in educational circles at the moment is the notion of fixed versus growth mindsets, and how they might relate to students and learning. Based on the work of Stanford University psychologist, Carol Dweck, the idea of mindset is related to our understanding of where ability comes from. It has recently been seized upon by educators as a tool to explore our knowledge of student achievement, and ways that such achievement might be improved.

However, in my work, I have found that the notion of developing a growth mindset is as equally applicable to staff and teacher performance as it is to students. This article begins with a brief discussion about the difference between the two mindsets, what that means for education, and concludes with some ideas for how school leaders might seek to develop a growth mindset amongst their staff.

Rosemary Tyrrell's insight:

Valuable! Growth mindset should be a requirement of any teaching position.

2016: Rethinking Continuous Professional Development (CPD) | LEARNing To LEARN

2016: Rethinking Continuous Professional Development (CPD) | LEARNing To LEARN | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it
Continuous Professional Development happens best through a daily dripfeed of information (from blog and web feeds) and interactions with other people active in your field (in social networks) – which over time builds up into a large body of knowledge and expertise – almost unconsciously. This is particularly useful way of keeping abreast of the NEW and the NEXT in your field of work – bearing in mind that in the fast moving world the horizon is rapidly approaching.

 

So why is continuous CPD of this type important?

It helps you to recognize the fact that learning comes not just from intermittent bouts of education but throughcontinuous interactions with people and access to content (both inside and outside the workplace).It allows you to be exposed to new thinking so that you not only keep your organisation up to date with new ideas, but also keep yourself up to date in terms of your own career. After all, there’s no such thing as a job for life!It helps you to recognize that learning comes not just from something that is organized for you, but something you organise yourself – as well as from daily experiences.It helps you to value this way of learning for yourself, and consequently to help build a continuous learning mindset – rather than an intermittent training mindset – in your organisation.

5 Ways to Support Faculty who Teach with Emerging Technologies

5 Ways to Support Faculty who Teach with Emerging Technologies | Faculty Professional Development | Scoop.it

 

As online and blended learning reshapes the landscape of teaching and learning in higher education, the need to encourage and support faculty to move from delivering passive, teacher-centered experiences to designing active, student-centered learning increases.  Our new social era is rich with simple, free to low-cost emerging technologies that are increasing experimentation and discovery in the scholarship of teaching and learning. While the literature about Web 2.0 tools are impacting teaching and learning is increasing, there is a lack of knowledge about how the adoption of these technologies is impacting the support needs of higher education faculty. This knowledge is essential to develop new, sustainable faculty support solutions.

What To Do If You Are Stuck in the Middle of a Writing or Other Project

 


Middles are tough.

It's no accident that Dante began The Inferno, his allegorical journey through Hell, "Midway upon the journey of our life / I found myself within a forest dark."

Writers (including academic ones!) also often get lost and discouraged midway through their journeys. At Grub Street Writers, where I taught for many years, many writers referred unhappily to having to slog through the "Murky Middle" of their projects.

Using Film (and Video!) in the Classroom

 

Everybody loves movies. Teachers across all of the disciplines integrate moving images into their classrooms, whether that means full-length theatrical screenings, television episodes, or videos from YouTube. Incorporating movies is a great way to attract student interest, appeal to different learning styles, and diversify classroom activities. Films can also raise their own questions, deepening content-area discussion.
