Cultivating Tech-Savvy Teachers Should Be Higher Priority, Report Says

Cultivating Tech-Savvy Teachers Should Be Higher Priority, Report Says | ICT in Professional development | Scoop.it

Teachers may be the undisputed authorities on academic content in their classrooms, but when it comes to their knowledge of technology, many of them have a lot of catching up to do.

The widely acknowledged need to improve the tech skills of teachers and other school officials, and help them understand how digital tools should be used in the classroom, should be a major area of focus among state officials and other policymakers, according to a report released today by the National Association of State Boards of Education.

I see no reason to doubt this list. It is in accordance with my anecdotal evidence. Tension may arise around teachers not being convinced of the content of the list or the depth of penetration of these trends into the lives of students and some teachers/schools.

Why Content Curation is the Ultimate Compliment to the Creator | ICT in Professional development | Scoop.it

Before today, imitation was the greatest form of flattery. If your idea was good enough to be copied, then you were golden. But now, with the state of the web in our lives, this balance is shifting.

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning

[INFOGRAPHIC] An Overview of the Principles of Adult Learning | ICT in Professional development | Scoop.it

By Nicole Legault

 

"After humming and hawing I decided that my third instructional design/learning themed infographic would be the Principles of Adult Learning. Now, I will be honest and say that while I knew a few principles (adults have experience, adults like control over their learning experiences, etc.) I was lacking in my overall knowledge in that area. Creating an infographic is a great cure to this. I need to research, read articles and gather the appropriate information. Then I have to boil it down to its most simple form and try to find visuals that represent what I am trying to communicate. Anyways, it’s a good learning process.

I

"thought I would jump online and quickly find the “list” of the 6 adult learning principles, or whatever. No such list exists. After much reading I have come to find out that there is no actual official consensus on what the principles of adult learning are. Many are generally agreed upon, but there is still much theoretical debate going on for each proposed principle.

 

"So here’s my disclaimer: there is no proven adult learning theory and the information in the infographic below is subject to much debate and differing opinions."

Teaching Metacognition

Teaching Metacognition | ICT in Professional development | Scoop.it

"Metacognition is a critically important, yet often overlooked component of learning. Effective learning involves planning and goal-setting, monitoring one's progress, and adapting as needed. All of these activities are metacognitive in nature. By teaching students these skills - all of which can be learned - we can improve student learning. There are three critical steps to teaching metacognition:


Teaching students that their ability to learn is mutableTeaching planning and goal-settingGiving students ample opportunities to practice monitoring their learning and adapting as necessary"

When tablets appeared on the market, there were expectations that they would be laptop computers’ greatest competition. That has not turned out to be true at Ball State University, where students see tablets as a form of entertainment—as essentially a bigger and more expensive smartphone, according to a recent study.

This was an interesting to read, all the tips about how to be a good teacher on your first years of teaching. Some of them seem obvious like listen, listen, listen. Listen to everybody so you can learn how things work. Along with knowing your class, you'll be with them all year so why not become close. One that surprised me a little was that how you dress is very important. I don't really pay attention to, or even care what my teachers wear. But apparently that leaves an impression on the class!
