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.

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. ...

Meta-Collaboration: Thinking With Another

Meta-Collaboration: Thinking With Another | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

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.

How can teachers prove that deep, rich learning is occurring through making? How do we justify a grade to students and parents alike, especially to the student who "just isn’t good at art"? By crafting a three-part rubric that assesses process, understanding, and product, teachers can rest assured that they are covering all the bases.

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? ...

What are the Biggest Mistakes Teachers Make When Integrating Technology into the Classroom? | Languages, ICT, education | Scoop.it

The word “mistake” is a harsh word. It implies flaws, pointing fingers, errors in judgement, something wrong and possibly even a dead end. I would rather think or connect the word “mistake” to first steps, stepping stones, experimentation and exploration. With that being said, those “first steps” or that exploration cannot become a routine cemented in stone how technology is being used in the classroom. Stepping stones are meant to lead to something else. ...
