6 Things New Teachers Remind Me to Do Every Year

6 Things New Teachers Remind Me to Do Every Year | Future of Learning | Scoop.it
You can usually spot a new teacher a mile away.  There is just something about the way they talk about the upcoming year, how they hold themselves, and even the very air that surrounds them.  So much joy, so much enthusiasm, mixed with a certain air of fear.  Right now seems to be the time where people start talking about all the mistakes new teachers make their first year and pass on advice to them whether they need it or not.  Yet, every year I learn so much from the new teachers I meet.  Every year they teach lessons to me.

Encouraging Metacognition for Learning

Encouraging Metacognition for Learning | Future of Learning | Scoop.it

A critical component of learning is the ability to reflect on one’s
learning and the processes that occur while we are engaged in learning. If we are to develop independent, empowered learners then we need to build the skills required for metacognition both directly through the provision of suitable strategies and indirectly via the modeling of effective learning that we provide.
