Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

These keys can also be used to engage teachers. I find they are often left out of the conversation.

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher

The Shift of the Role of the Teacher | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it

We know today’s students will have to create their jobs, not look for jobs. They will compete with others around the globe. They will have jobs replaced by outsourcing and technology if their skills are easily replicated or duplicated.  To succeed, students will need creativity, communication, critical thinking, collaboration, and entrepreneurship.

 

They will need to be able to adapt to change, be resilient and able to work effectively in a variety of environments.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Teaching will be an amalgam of a number of roles perhaps unfolding in very unexpected ways. Is it possible that during the course of the day teaching can be each of the roles listed in the graphic?

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

I worked in a small school where parents played an integral role in their children's learning. They helped through their sharing their pedagogic experiences with me and this enabled me to help their children. When we discourage working parent-teacher partnerships, and my School managers did, teaching and learning are negatively impacted. The last 7 School managers set up roadblocks to those relationships and that little school no longer exists beyond its name.

Educating Parents About Education

Educating Parents About Education | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
Many parents today have an educational perspective based on 20th century pedagogy and methodology. Teachers need to educate them about where education is now.

Via Gust MEES, Dean J. Fusto
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

The second paragraph begins with the line "things have changed." In response, I would say the more things change the more the stay the same. The important point in the article is engaging teachers in a conversation and asking them to be part of the solutions not for now, but for the future. We have too many experts stating imperatives rather than engaging in conversations, asking questions, and listening.

How To Prep Your Child for Kindergarten — Painlessly!

How To Prep Your Child for Kindergarten — Painlessly! | Leadership, Innovation, and Creativity | Scoop.it
The start of Kindergarten is a major milestone in a child's life but it can involve lots of anxiety. Here are a few ways to ease the Kindergarten transition.

Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

Kindergarten should be a place children look forward to going to. What preparation might do is take away from that enjoyment. I looked at the common core standards and was taken aback by the abstractness and the need for abstract thinking. Children operate in the concrete, the right now.

Here is a novel concept, but what if we let them do something meaningful? Do we think then parents might get on board? I don't mean some. I mean many more. Our school council went from standing room only to virtually no one because bureaucrats and functionaries dictated to them.

There is a point in saying learning is the students` responsibility. I think that means they need a bigger voice in the proceedings and this is increasingly important as they mature.

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, September 24, 2014 10:12 AM

I love this idea.  At my son's school, the fall conferences are facilitated by the teachers, and the spring conferences are lead by the students.  It is a very nice way of allowing students to take responsibility for their effort and work-- to take pride in it, and/or recognize areas that need to be strengthened.  When students are aware that they will have to converse with their parents and teacher(s) about their work, they may take more time to ensure they are producing work that they can be proud of.

Strong and healthy parent-teacher relationships are integral to teaching, parenting, and learning. What I found the last few years of my teaching, was the School managers wanted to ensure that those relationships did not happen.

This is hard to research, but a tentative conclusion would be to praise the character revealed rather than the actions. I think it is important to know the child and situations, but it makes a certain amount of sense.
