Paul Avila's curator insight, November 30, 2013 9:33 PM

This chart can be used for students as a guideline for the right mindset in dealing with their education. Students need the right mindset to achieve in schools and avoid the mental barriers preventing them from growth. I would probably use this chart in the beginning of the school year to show what I expect from my students.  This could be useful for the less motivated students in the class.

Fostering learning communities among teachers [pdf]

According to the Teaching and Learning International Survey (TALIS), teachers across countries overwhelmingly desire more professional development.

 

• In all TALIS countries, there are low rates of co-operative professional development and collaborative teaching practice.


• Countries could use professional development to effectively and efficiently build and improve professional learning communities in schools.

The Art of Reflection: What you need to do to improve your practice

The Art of Reflection: What you need to do to improve your practice | Ict4champions | Scoop.it
Reflective Teaching is a habit of mind that requires consciously thinking about how teaching practices impact students’ learning.

 

Reflection is a tool to self-assess your practice. Once you have collected this information, plan a course of action so that you can implement change.  You might decide to find more research on an area where you need improvement, attend a conference, or read magazines or books related to the topic for which you are seeking information.  

 

Once you begin to implement changes be sure you take the time to reflect once again.

 

===> Reflection is a continuous cycle that begins once you develop the habit of mind to think about your practice. <===

A Simple Comprehensive Guide on The use of Personal Learning Networks in Education

A Simple Comprehensive Guide on The use of Personal Learning Networks in Education | Ict4champions | Scoop.it

PLNs are basically based on the concept of a learning community. Teachers who are passionate about developing their learning experiences recognize the value of sharing their knowledge and expertise with others. They constantly seek out other learning venues that could be experts in their field or other professionals with whom they can exchange information.They, in short, become a part and parcel of a learning community of like-minded people.

 

PLNs have a great importance f not only in education but in our overall professional development and that is why I deem it crucial to write a simple and comprehensive guide for teachers to review and hopefully share with their students.

Today, computer involment in classroom is immence. We have e-learning lesson plans, enhahced with WEB.2 tools for immediate reaction. I know I have created a rich learning event when all my students are engaged in arguing about the best approach to the assignment. When we use questions and problems that allow for multiple strategies to reach a successful outcome, then we can speak that we gave students the opportunity to make choices and then compare their approaches. This strategy challenges them to operate at a higher level of thinking than when they can share only the "correct" answer. And this is only possible in class.
