New Studies Find That, for Teachers, Experience Really Does Matter

New Studies Find That, for Teachers, Experience Really Does Matter | High School Education | Scoop.it
In all, the new studies paint teacher quality as a mutable characteristic that can be developed, rather than a static one that's formed in the first few years on the job.

No surprise for me here.  Lifelong learning and an ongoing commitment to meaningful professional development are central to what I do and who I am.  


In other words, I am biased. I believe great teachers develop over time.

Creative Ways To Use Skype In The Classroom

The answer: in more ways than you could imagine. While Skype was not designed as an educational tool, it’s quickly becoming one as teachers discover the many ways it enriches their lessons and the lives of their students. Even something as simple as hosting a guest speaker through a video call can add excitement to a lesson.

As with any tech tool, it can seem daunting to introduce this into your classroom at first. If you don’t know where to start, try one of these five creative ideas.

Skype is a great tool to use in learning as it provides real time engagement with experts. This a great article with ideas about thinking outside of the box when integrating Skype. 

Phil Hobrla's curator insight, March 16, 2015 8:04 PM

Microsoft recently showcased a new Skype feature that allows for real-time, two-way, voice translation! This feature will make the Skype Cultural Exchange even more extensible and will allow those who use Skype for non-native language acquisition to have in-depth conversations, in their own languages, about their progress and issues in their learning.

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’

Howard Gardner: ‘Multiple intelligences’ are not ‘learning styles’ | High School Education | Scoop.it

“ The famed psychologist explains why one is not the other though they are often confused.” 1. Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone. Read more, a MUST!!! ...

His thinking now?  "

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of “one size fits all,” learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively. Of course this is easier to accomplish with smaller classes. But ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

2.        Pluralize your teaching. Teach important materials in several ways, not just one (e.g. through stories, works of art, diagrams, role play). In this way you can reach students who learn in different ways. Also, by presenting materials in various ways, you convey what it means to understand something well. If you can only teach in one way, your own understanding is likely to be thin.

3.       Drop the term “styles.” It will confuse others and it won’t help either you or your students."

 

IQ , as we KNEW it, is largely dependent upon context.  It is not a unitary trait, nor is it static.  

Elina Jeskanen's curator insight, January 30, 2014 1:51 AM

As an educator, I draw three primary lessons for educators:

1.       Individualize your teaching as much as possible.  ‘apps’ make it possible to individualize for everyone.

2.        Pluralize your teaching.

3.       Drop the term “styles.” It will confuse others and it won’t help either you or your students.

WEAC's curator insight, May 15, 2014 10:32 AM

Monique Markoff says: "Some would say in this model the teachers matter less since computers are taking over some of the instruction. But I actually think teachers matter more in this model. They are now the orchestrators of these complex learning paths, picking which program should go for which student. They have to now target all the skills that the computer can’t do.  How to motivate that child. How to connect what they’re doing to their home life."

Brian Romero Smith's curator insight, May 17, 2014 2:53 PM

You've heard of Blended Learning strategies by now along with all the other technology driven methods available. What this particle TED talk focuses on is building a model that encourages student led learning using technology, while the teacher serves as the motivator, and your guide for exploring the student's learning potential. The most important aspect however when trying to implement a Blended learning model,  is being flexible in its delivery and outcomes.  As there are many ways to  build your platform, just keep your students at the forefront of your decision making in order to Meet Them Where They Are.
