This is an interest line of thought.   Good teacher evals may not just rest upon the teacher, but upon the environment such as the quality of principal, size of school, size of class, all these facets play a role in teacher evaluation.  If the teacher feels happy and comfortable, they may perform better.

"Bates has observed that it is important to understand that technologies used for teaching are not pedagogically neutral but can be more or less suited to a particular teaching approach. The effective implementation of online learning requires you to consider your view of the nature of knowledge, what you believe constitutes effective teaching, how you apply these beliefs to your discipline, and the implications for choice of technologies and their integration into your practice.

The Powerful Impact of Social Sharing & Content Marketing [Infographic]

The Powerful Impact of Social Sharing & Content Marketing [Infographic] | iTeacher Scoop | Scoop.it

How many marketers can pin down the impact of social media using hard numbers?

The following infographic, based largely on results from the Demand Gen Report 2013 B2B Content Preferences Survey and 2012 B2B Buyer Survey shows data to help answer that very important question.

Promoting content over social networks is now a vital part of getting a message in front of potential buyers, establishing thought leadership and making the most of content investments. That means understanding which social media channels are most appropriate for different campaigns, and it definitely means understanding how to optimize different types of content for your social campaigns.
