Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development

Nik Peachey: How I use social media for my professional development | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

The issue of how we use social media for our own development as teachers and as digitally skilled individuals is of vital importance, not just because it can enable us to keep developing as teachers through the content, ideas, resources and above all people it gives us access to, but also because the way we use digital media for our own development should guide and influence the way we use it with our students and build their digital literacies and communication skills.

Highly trained, respected and free: why Finland's teachers are different

Highly trained, respected and free: why Finland's teachers are different | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it
Welcome to a country where teaching is a highly prized profession. Finland’s teachers have kept the nation near the top of the influential Pisa performance rankings since they were first published in 2001, leading to an influx of educational tourists as other teachers have endeavoured to learn from the Finnish experience.

Assessment, but not as we know it... #EduTechAU

Assessment, but not as we know it... #EduTechAU | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Assessment today is simply to give grades, for students don't study to learn, they study to earn their grade. What is in a number? How can something as complex as learning be reduced to a single figure? Why doesn't assessment provide more to the learner than a grade? Because it was established at a time when knowledge was the main currency for education, and where employers demanded knowledgeable workers. That has chaned now.

8 Strategies To Help Students Ask Great Questions

8 Strategies To Help Students Ask Great Questions | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

A good question can open minds, shift paradigms, and force the uncomfortable but transformational cognitive dissonance that can help create thinkers. In education, we tend to value a student's ability to answer our questions. But what might be more important is their ability to ask their own great questions - and more critically, their willingness to do so. ...

Avoiding "Just Google it!" with your students

Avoiding "Just Google it!" with your students | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

We often refer to students as being ‘digital natives’ but while our students may have grown up with today’s technology, many of them do not know how to use it effectively, particularly for academic purposes. While evidence appears inconclusive about whether school libraries are in decline, owing to the online alternatives, my discussions with students indicate that in some classes they never use the library for research purposes. If this is the case with some classes, how well are teachers guiding students when conducting online inquiry?


Our responsibility, when asking students to inquire or perform any form of online research, is to teach them how to use the technology both efficiently and effectively. So, what do we need in schools to make this happen? ...

How to bring Social Media to a Conference focused on Learning... not Technology? | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Social Media has given educators the opportunity for self-directed, collaborative and connected learning. Network literacy, according to Eric Hellweg, requires a basic understanding of network technology, intelligence, capabilities and the ability of crafting one’s own network identity.

So, how do you bring the benefits of social media to a conference without making the conference ABOUT social media or technology? How do you share the basics of connecting and learning collaboratively with attendees who are newbies? ...

A is for Accuracy

A is for Accuracy | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Scott Thornbury: Accuracy and fluency - it used to be the case that, of these two constructs, fluency was the one that was the most elusive and contentious – difficult to define, difficult to test, and only rarely achieved by classroom learners. 

But I’m increasingly coming to the view that, of the two constructs, it is accuracy that is really the more slippery. I’m even wondering if it’s not a concept that has reached its sell-by date, and should be quietly, but forcefully, put down. ...

It’s Time to Reform Learning Measurement

It’s Time to Reform Learning Measurement | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Our lives are increasingly data rich. The demands for educational measurement continue to grow—from the epics of students’ high-stakes testing, the politics of teacher measurement (and pay), higher education’s quest towards competency-based education, and professional learning’s venturing into the world of micro-credentials and new-age certificates. Our current measurement tools are at best mediocre for the learner, and downright abysmal for hiring managers. Given the accelerating change in the way people learn, the world is ripe for a stronger way to signal learning and skills aptitude. ...

Clarifying what it means to be a reflective teacher

Clarifying what it means to be a reflective teacher | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Too often, when we think about being a reflective practioner, the reflection process is limited to evaluation; what went well and what did not. In some instances, reflection may include what might I do differently next time.

Being reflective is much more than that. Firstly, reflection must involve action. True reflection in education cannot happen without the the thoughts of what might be done differently next time actually translating into planning for action and taking action. There is no point saying that all teachers are reflective if there are lots of thoughts but no action. ...

What if we could dramatically improve our thought processes and learning strategies by tapping into the social genius of another? What if a classmate, colleague, or friend could help us recognize and claim our strengths, new habits of thought, and strategies from a perspective that we never imagined by ourselves? As human beings, our survival depends on others. Our ability to cooperate and collaborate has trumped the stress response state of competition within our species and throughout evolution. With a group affiliation to nurture these relationships, we can strengthen and reappraise our own thought processes.

Using Bloom's Taxonomy for Reading Comprehension

Using Bloom's Taxonomy for Reading Comprehension | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

Among Instructional Designers, Bloom's Taxonomy is well-known tool for writing lesson objectives and learning standards. It provides a variety of outcomes we expect students to display after learning has occurred. Yet, its use does not need to stop there. In fact, Bloom himself saw his taxonomy of objectives as something greater; he believed the classifications could be used as a common  language, opening up lines of communication between persons about what they were learning. (Krathwohl, 2002). Thus, teachers, parents, story-hour volunteers; anyone who reads aloud to an audience, or who assesses a reader's comprehension, can utilize Bloom's Taxonomy to discuss the learning that has occurred.
