Don't Forget Professional Development for Students

Don't Forget Professional Development for Students | Financial Education for Kids | Scoop.it

Teachers spend countless hours learning new tools to use in class, but do they set aside any time for students to learn these new tools as well?

 

Gust MEES: I said this already years ago and I used it also with adults, seniors + kids and it's working well! Just show them one of the tools YOU are using, tell them it's your secret tool (it makes them curious...) and explain how it works and then give them a challenge to do it better...  You will engage them and the challenge will bring out a lot of creativity... BUT, don't make a time limit, give them the time they need to work it out...

 

Tip: read the books of Howard GARDNER "Multiple Intelligences" + "5 Minds for the future" as also books from Daniel GOLEMAN about Emotional Intelligence and YOU will understand...

 

In one phrase: make a win-win situation with your learners, show them your "secret" Educational Tools and use them to engage your learners, they will learn "BETTER" ;) Best would be to make your own curation and share it with them, but also to ask your learners to create also in parallel their own curation about it...

9 Tools to Create E-magazines and Newspapers for Your Class | Financial Education for Kids | Scoop.it

I am pretty sure as you introduce the idea to your students everyone will want to have a say in their next e-magazine. There is nothing much more rewarding to students then to have a proof of their hard work recognized in a publication of some sort.

 

Most of the tools cited here are easy to use and have user friendly interface and they will let you create your own e-magazine or newspaper in few simple steps. Yet I would recommend your discretion as you use them with your students.
