Videos of Top Teachers Explaining Their Craft | NY Times | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

By Motoko Rich

 

"As much as showing the content of the classes, the videos help teachers identify techniques for organizing a lesson or eliciting sophisticated questions from students...."

 

"The District of Columbia is not the only public school district or educational organization that is using video for the professional development of teachers. Teaching Channel, a nonprofit, has amassed more than 500 videos of teachers who are recommended by school districts, teaching organizations and a panel of advisers."

 

"Uncommon Schools, which runs 32 schools, mostly in Brooklyn and Newark, show videos like these during teacher training.

A YouTube video shows Juliana Worrell, a first-grade teacher, with her students at North Star Academy Vailsburg Elementary School."

 

A small, but high quality, selection of teacher videos, with links to sources for more. -JL

Grades & Satisfaction Up in New Flipped Learning Research

Grades & Satisfaction Up in New Flipped Learning Research | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Over the last three years, flipped learning strategies have been implemented in year 9 science.  There has been a gradual increase in the use of flipped learning over this time.  Students watch short teacher-made educational videos via the school’s learning management system in their individual learning space.  The group learning space involves learning experiences to practice and deepen knowledge through activities, peer-teaching, and experiments.  I have evaluated the effectiveness of flipped learning by comparing the academic performance of the year 9 cohorts and by administering a student perception survey on flipped learning. In this post, I have provided very little commentary because I feel that the results speak for themselves.

A very useful and interesting tool for students to post a recording on a picture they will display on a map for instance, to display images on a background of your choice with  videos or recordings for your students to click on to find information to help them in a quest for ex... and many other possible activities.

Seven ways to give better feedback to your students

Seven ways to give better feedback to your students | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Feedback can be a difficult business. When it is used in the right way, it can be one of the most effective strategies to improve learning, according to The Sutton Trust. But research also suggests that, if handled badly, it can do more harm than good.

The Best Tools & Lessons For Teaching Information Literacy – Help Me Find More

The Best Tools & Lessons For Teaching Information Literacy – Help Me Find More | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
As a companion “Best” list to The Best Resources For Learning Research & Citation Skills, I thought it would be useful to create this one.
I’m using the term “information literacy” here to describe assisting our students developing critical thinking skills to evaluate both web and content in other media forms. I’ve seen the term used to describe broader skills, too. Let me know if you think I’m off-based with my definition.

Lessons Learned From Great Schools Around the World

Lessons Learned From Great Schools Around the World | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Much has been written recently about the differences between education systems around the world, but much less has been said about what excellent schools around the world have in common. Over the past year, I’ve visited top-ranked schools across four continents and met an extremely diverse array of school leaders. Amid this diversity, I was surprised when each leader described the same three priorities as fundamental to their schools’ success. From Singapore to Switzerland, South Africa to India, these three practices recurred with remarkable consistency.

A Great Venn Diagram Making Tool for Teachers

A Great Venn Diagram Making Tool for Teachers | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Venn Diagram Maker is a good web tool from Lucidchart that allows you to easily create and share Venn diagrams. The process is very simple and no software download is required. Using an intuitive interface with drag and drop editor, you can easily get started creating your diagrams right away. For instance, ‘line drawing is as easy as dragging from the edge of an object. Let go and a new shape instantly pops up.’ You can customize your diagrams the way you want: adjust the size of the circle, add colour and context and many more.
