5 Things Every Teacher Should Know

5 Things Every Teacher Should Know | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

In order to be a successful teacher using technology for your 21st century learning encounters, you need to be able to model 21st century learning and innovation skills in your encounters with technology.

 

 

===> These skills are also known as the 4 C’s: <===

 

- Critical thinking and problem solving


- Communication


- Collaboration


- Creativity and innovation


Key basic functions to know: creation capabilities (document, spreadsheet, presentation, WYSIWYG website), collaborative capabilities (document sharing, interactive form building, wiki—collaborative website building). One free (so far) suite to explore for these functions, all under one banner, is GOOGLE. Not just the mainstream search engine, but Google Scholar, Google Alerts, and the entire suite of Google products helps you become more effective and efficient in your search missions, and more. They are constantly adding functions to their suite of tools, so keep up to date by exploring the “More Google Products” page on their site: www.google.com/intl/en/options/. They organize their expanded tool set under the following categories:

 

- Search
- Explore and Innovate
- Communicate, Show and Share
- Go Mobile


Make your computer work better (beta versions of pack software to enhance performance)


Web 2.0 tools have something for everyone and are constantly changing. If you can imagine it, it is most likely out there in one form or another. The trick with web 2.0 tools is, though, that they rarely do everything you are looking for, so sometimes DIY mash-ups are necessary. Understanding the functionality of what you’re looking for helps you to choose the right tools to help you attain it, rather than relying too heavily on a specific set of tools. Focus instead on a class of tools based on functionality.

20 Ways To Make Professional Development More Effective

20 Ways To Make Professional Development More Effective | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it
Administrators often ask how to best utilize their staff meeting time to promote best instructional practices and improve professional development.

 

It has been said that once teachers start teaching, we become the most uneducated of professionals about our own profession, failing to research and implement the cutting-edge best practices that make the difference in student engagement and learning. We can’t use 20th century practices with our 21st century students.

 

In order to encourage and even demand curiosity, creativity, learning, sharing and growing in our students, we must model those traits within our own profession; a staff meeting is the perfect time to cultivate these skills within and among our colleagues.

Nik's Learning Technology Blog: How I use social media for my professional development

How I use social media for my professional development


This has been a common theme to many of the presentations, workshops, webinars and seminars that I have been asked to do over the last few years, but however many times I try to present on this subject I never really feel that I get the message across as clearly and persuasively as I would like.

 

So here it is. This my own attempt to outline my digital media learning experience, or at least part of it.

I’ll split this into 3 sections which I’ll call


- Information in - This is how and where I find information

 

- Information processing - This is how I process, engage with and capture information

 

- Information out - This is how I share what I’ve learned or discovered

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning

Creativity and diversity. To add value and meaning | Inclusive Education | Scoop.it

Maybe “design” can help in understanding the importance of cultural diversity and interdisciplinarity.

 

Why?

Because, “to design is much more than simply to assemble, to order, or even to edit; it is to add value and meaning, to illuminate, to simplify, to clarify, to dignify, to dramatize, to persuade and even perhaps to amuse.”-Paul Rand
