The Importance Of Mobile Learning In (And Out Of) The Classroom

The Importance Of Mobile Learning In (And Out Of) The Classroom | Flipped Professional Development | Scoop.it
There has always been at least some sort of disconnect between how things like mobile learning are taught in a classroom and how things work in the 'real world'.

The three points, doability, sustainablity, and importance to teachers, make sense. I rarely ever see them implemented. The converse is more often the case.

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.

 


Via Gust MEES
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.

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD! I could really appreciate this quote, "Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow”." Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

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.

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, March 21, 2013 1:43 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.

My favorite quote: "Conflict, when well managed and focused on a team's objectives, can generate more creative solutions than one sees in conflict-free groups."  All too often conflict is avoided maybe because it is poorly managed but if it's focused on team's goal or mission can be most beneficial.

Teamwork is a frustrating as it is rewarding.  Here are a few insights about how to make the most out of collaboration.  

donhornsby's curator insight, February 14, 2013 5:26 AM

(From the article):The hands-on activities of group leaders do make a difference. But the most powerful thing a leader can do to foster effective collaboration is to create conditions that help members competently manage themselves. The second most powerful thing is to launch the team well. And then, third, is the hands-on teaching and coaching that leaders do after the work is underway. Our research suggests that condition-creating accounts for about 60% of the variation in how well a team eventually performs; that the quality of the team launch accounts for another 30%; and that real-time coaching accounts for only about 10%. Leaders are indeed important in collaborative work, but not in the ways we usually think.
