Twitter for Digital Citizenship

Twitter for Digital Citizenship | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

I have been a longtime advocate for using Twitter in education, in fact, it was more than three years ago now when I started using Twitter to model and teach authentic global digital citizenship. It has been almost two years since this article was published in The Age, celebrating the positives use of such a tool in a variety of educational contexts.

I enjoyed making instructional videos for my students and letting them make them as well.  This article covers why we should not be hung up on having a polished video because shorter, less formal videos can be more effective.  I used the app Explain Everything on my iPad to record lessons, but there are some who say that having the teacher in the video is more effective.  I wasn't ready for that.

5 Ways Leaders Enable Innovation In Their Teams

5 Ways Leaders Enable Innovation In Their Teams | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Leaders are accountable to assemble teams and lead them to optimal performance outcomes. An effective leader recognizes the importance of embracing differences in people and knows how to connect the dots amongst those differences to get the best outcomes from the team. This is what cultivates a workplace environment of continuous improvements, innovation and initiative. Leaders must foster a commitment from the team to embrace an innovation mindset where each employee learns to apply the differences that exist in one another for their own success and that of the organization. Here are 5 immediate things leaders can do with their teams to foster an environment of innovation and initiative. They apply whether you are forming a new team or revamping an existing one.

After describing the three phases of the learning process based on cognitive science. The first two phases:

* Students decide what to attend to.

* Students organize the information

These work with short term memory but to know the information students must also activate long term memory which may begin in class with a review but should also includes well crafted assignments.

What can you do?The post continues by exploring ways to capture a students attention and ways to help them create a framework. The final section explores how to make the lesson stick. Three examples are below (quoted from the post).

* Begin lectures with a high level question that the upcoming information can answer.

* Highlight the "unfinished" nature of each subject.

* Don't use too many types of different presentation materials at once.

Throughout the post there are links to additional resources.

Shouldn't Education and Learning Be the Same Thing? | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"Schooling and institutionalized education have become removed from true, instinctual, and human/humane learning.  Humans have been learning since the beginning of time with major discoveries and innovations historically and currently emerging in spite of school.  This is the biggest problem I have with schools – most are contrived and coercive and do not honor the innate human need and desire to learn, discover, and evolve."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 20, 7:24 PM

In this post Jackie Gerstein states "to fully understand the purpose of school, the history of its evolution as an institution needs to be understood." After this is discussed she provides refers to an article that discusses "how to bring our schools out of the 20th century."

The next section shares quotes from a wide range of people on schooling. Three are below.

* Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.  Albert Einstein

* Knowledge that is acquired under compulsion obtains no hold on the mind. Plato

* Education is one of the chief obstacles to intelligence and freedom of thought.  Bertrand Russell

She then looks at the messages sent out by our current school system and asks if we are questioning "What is the purpose of school?"

In fact, there are 8 questions that are raised in this post. You can find them in the image above, or you may click through to the post.
