The full results of this work can be found in a new resource, Engaging Families with Young Children. Here’s a look at some of the best principles:

Great to have this collection of videos brought together with some context! Self-directed learning is not a requirement for mastery learning, but for more and more people that play in this space, it's the most powerful way to encourage mastery.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 4, 2016 12:27 PM

The Einstein quote is important. Teachers are responsible for teaching and not student learning. That makes teaching an invitational process which is hard work. Many school managers and consultants do what they do because it is easier to speak in technical and instrumental jargon than in human and relational language.

...and why stopping to do this will improve your performance significantly

Alexandru Otelea's curator insight, March 19, 2016 3:43 AM

This article breaks the myths. Many people believe the multitasking it a skill of which they are proud. It's not! Let's listen the studies.

Antonio Ormachea's curator insight, April 1, 2016 12:32 PM

 

As a business owner you will always have a lot on your plate, and if you are like most business owners, you will pride yourself on your ability to multitask in order to get everything done. Research has long shown that multitasking is actually a very inefficient way in which to operate, yet business owners tend to take little notice of such research findings. Perhaps, if you were conscious of what multitasking is doing to your brain, you might review your modus operandi, and focus on monotasking instead. This article should be a wake up call for every business owner who sees multitasking as a virtue.

It seems we can hope to use it also in education pretty soon. 

Rosemary Tyrrell, Ed.D.'s curator insight, February 15, 2016 7:27 PM

The test of VR will be in the kinds of content that are created. I think we will see an explosion when we have a headset that is comfortable to wear.

Hope to see lots more about this soon.

Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Rod Murray's comment, February 13, 2016 7:21 PM
If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 2016 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.
