Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 28, 2014 7:00 PM

Self-directed learning has a social quality to it. I like the idea that teaching is about listening. It might be about deep listening and being open when students speak. Self-directed learning can be learned and one role teachers play/perform is creating space and time when students take increasing control of their learning. After all, despite the way we evaluate teachers based on student learning, learning is  students' responsibility. Teachers are there to listen and guide, not do the learning for students. That sounds like it is self-directed.

Why Criticism Is So Tough To Swallow (And How To Make It Go Down Easier)

Why Criticism Is So Tough To Swallow (And How To Make It Go Down Easier) | Education and Training | Scoop.it
What Your Brain Does When You're Criticised

 

At any given time, brains are subconsciously scanning the world around us for dangers to defend against—ready to launch a fight, flight, or freeze response that will protect us from predators or poisons. But the brain doesn’t just guard us against physical threats. Research has found that it also goes on the defensive in response to things that threaten to undermine our social standing and safety, including interactions that make us feel even mildly rejected or incompetent.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, April 18, 11:02 PM
Criticism is so tough to swallow, apparently because our brains perceive criticism as a danger and so it gets into defensive mode! A few of the senior at the place where I work tell others to learn to accept vulnerability without being defensive. Most of the workshops conducted for employees revolve around making them feel comfortable with vulnerabilty. This, I guess is the first step towards accepting criticism without feeling threatened. Being comfortable with vulnerability depends, also to a great extent on developing  a secure environment.

Research on motivation isn’t hard to find; any teacher with an Internet connection should be able to learn everything they need to know about the topic.

So where are they going wrong? If educators already know what works to motivate students, why are so many students still unmotivated?

A great article outlining five in depth questions that every educator should consider.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 29, 9:32 AM
Groupthink is a product of a lack of trust, but it is also a cultural phenomenon. Perhaps it is so ingrained in the way things are done that it is hard to shake free. Schools abound with groupthink as people focus on managing rather than leading. It will take courageous leaders and followers to step out of those shadows.

12 Rules Of Great Teaching -

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - | Education and Training | Scoop.it

Recently, I’ve been thinking of the universal truths in teaching. Students should be first. Don’t always start planning with a standard. Questions matter more than answers. Trust is a currency of a human classroom.

 

So I thought I’d gather twelve of them to start with. The idea of “good teaching” is an idea we get at a variety of different ways, So then, here are some rules we might consider when making sense of this idea of what makes a teacher great. Thanks to Sylvia Duckworth for the great illustration, who went all out and added all 15.
