14 Technology Concepts Every Teacher should Know about

14 Technology Concepts Every Teacher should Know about | Flipped Professional Development | Scoop.it

So you are coming across too many tech terms that it becomes hard for you to draw clear boundaries between what each of them refer to. Well we do share with you this confusion and that is why we deem it important to put forward a list of the major and most popular educational concepts that are technology-related.

 

The list below is a simple attempt to help you better capture the full picture of what all these tech terms are about by providing clear definitions to each one of them.

Rachelle Wooten's insight:

Some of these are unfamiliar to me as an Ed Tech Specialist.  I will do some investigating but "Know" (lowest level of Bloom's) may be the best we can expect from some of our classroom teachers.  They may, however, become experts on one or two of these concepts.  Whatever they choose.

Critical Friends: The Benefits of Instructional Coaches

Critical Friends: The Benefits of Instructional Coaches | Flipped Professional Development | Scoop.it

 

Instructional coaches seem to be a new phenomenon in schools. Their job is to help educators become better teachers. They observe teachers teaching, go over instructional data, and model good teaching practices. As much as this may be new for schools, the core of instructional coaching has been around for a long time.

This was a great read! This is mostly what I do. These practices for Knight will help me more consistent in my quality of service. I plan to begin doing research of my own to assess the impact of ed tech coaching.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, March 21, 2013 4:43 PM

"Knights says instructional coaches employ the following seven practices:
• Enrolls the teacher - they conduct one-to-one interviews with each teacher prior to the experience. 
• Engages in collaborative planning - The coach meets with the collaborating teacher to discuss how a new teaching practice can be implemented effectively. 
• Models the lesson- The coach must model the lesson in the collaborating teacher's classroom while the teacher observes. 
• Teacher-directed post conference - Both parties must meet to discuss what the teacher observed the coach doing while modeling the lesson. 
• Coach observes the lesson- It's the teacher's turn to teach the lesson. 
• Exploring data together - The coach and teacher discuss the data gathered during mutual observations. 
• Providing continued support - This is a continuous relationship that needs to be fostered over the year."


I am eager to keep practicing effective coaching.  Fidelity is an on-going issue.
