Teachers need real feedback

Teachers need real feedback | Integration Inspiration | Scoop.it
Until recently, many teachers only got one word of feedback a year: “satisfactory.” And with no feedback, no coaching, there’s just no way to improve. Bill Gates suggests that even great teachers can get better with smart feedback -- and lays out a program from his foundation to bring it to every classroom.
Lisa Simmons's insight:

Powerful TED talk about teacher feedback.

Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning?

Is technology a silver bullet for language teaching and learning? | Integration Inspiration | Scoop.it

Whereas using tech may have once meant a weekly trip to a computer lab, it can now involve anything, from Facebook and Twitter to podcasts and videos in the classroom. The question is: should teachers try to evolve their teaching to fit with the latest gadgets, or should they stick to their old ways?

Interesting that this series is being funded by Rosetta Stone!!

LilyGiraud's comment, May 14, 2014 10:25 AM
If the teacher does not know the technology, he/she can't apply the pedagogy ... Technology is great to teach languages, I think a great software adapted to individual needs will substitute the teacher of languages in near future..

Infographic: Citizenship in the digital age

Infographic: Citizenship in the digital age | Integration Inspiration | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is not so different from traditional citizenship. We still need to guide students to be kind, respectful and responsible. What’s new is teaching them how to apply these values to the realities of the digital age.

Denver Leigh Watson, M.Ed, LDTC's curator insight, October 31, 2014 1:28 AM

We often think of assessment in a formal, summative sense; however, the art of formative evaluation is critical to master in order to assess how well students are grasping concepts.  Jumping past basic recall and simple predictions, formative assessments are great tools for establishing where  personal connections have been made in a child's learning process. While we are reaching for the application and synthesis of knowledge, we need to break free from multiple choice bubbles and encourage students to travel deeper into their learning.

As more and more schools move towards a one-to-one classroom, the need for students to understand basic rules and routines around digital devices is critical. Find 8 printable posters that address the following rules.

* Eyes on your own screen

* Keep food and drink away from technology

* Respect the laptop

* Keep your password to yourself

* Think before you print

* Save your work!

* Leave tricky stuff to the experts

* Watch where you click (don't visit unapproved sites)

The visuals will help students understand (and hopefully remember) the rules.

Lisa Simmons's insight:

Office Mix adds interactivity including video, audio, apps and questioning into a beautiful and familiar PowerPoint environment. The recording features are very forgiving as you can delete a specific recording on a slide and start again. The analytics that the site brings provides a great tool for teachers flipping their classrooms for the first time. This is a great free tool from Microsoft.

This is a really interesting development, following on from the "Granny Cloud" experiment. The idea of self-directed learning is obviously not new, but the way of using technology to bring together groups of learners for different purposes is extremely thought-provoking.

Thanks, Nik Peachey, for the link.
