Teacher Andrew Jones explains the difference between coaching and mentoring, and how they suit different professional development needs
Coaching, on the other hand, consists of peer-to-peer discussions that provide the person being coached with objective feedback on their strengths and weaknesses in areas chosen by them. While discussion is led by the coach, they ask questions that allow the professional seeking advice to reflect on their practice and set their own goals for improvement. This is the opposite of mentoring as the coach does not evaluate, judge or set targets, and the person being coached is in full control of the discussion.
Unlike mentoring, coaching also gives the recipient more say on the direction of their professional development and encourages them to take more ownership of their CPD.

Muchas veces los docentes nos preguntamos ¿cómo podemos motivar a nuestros alumnos? Todos sabemos que cada vez más las generaciones van cambiando sus habilidades y competencias. Aprenden de una manera distinta a la que nosotros aprendimos.
Son conocidos como "nativos digitales" porque nacen y se desenvuelven en un entorno mediado por las tecnologías. Son capaces de manipular dispositivos sin necesidad de leer los manuales y (aunque parezca increíble de creer) pueden realizar y concentrarse en varias tareas al ¡mismo tiempo!
Por esto y muchas razones más, a veces sentimos (y percibimos) que nuestras clases les aburre.
Por eso hemos querido compartir con ustedes veinte (20) herramientas de tecnología educativa que nos ayudarán a mantenerlos motivados y "enganchados" con nuestras clases.

Every so often when I’m tweeting or emailing, I’ll think: Should I really be writing so much?
I tend to get carried away. And for the times that I do, it sure would be nice to know if all this extra typing is hurting or helping my cause. I want to stand out on social media, but I want to do it in the right way.
Curious, I dug around and found some answers for the ideal lengths of tweets and titles and everything in between. Many of these could have been answered with “it depends,” but where’s the fun in that?
Solid research exists to show the value of writing, tweeting, and posting at certain lengths. We can learn a lot from scientific social media guidelines like these. Here’s the best of what I found.
Educational technology should not be intrusive in the classroom. It should be designed in a way that makes the most of the real world of teachers, families and students, according to SXSWedu keynote speakers Vivienne Ming and Norma Ming, co-founders of educational technology startup Socos.
“We can build technology that provides amazing support without you ever realizing that it was there,” Vivienne told attendees. “Technology does not need to be intrusive.”
“Stop trying to disrupt everything,” she added. “There are systems out there. Integrate them. You’ll get so much more done that way. We’re not talking about big intrusive technology.”
Here are five lessons Vivienne and Norma shared with attendees to help educational technology designers — and others — keep the promise of educational technology in the classroom.
