A Visual Guide To Slowing Down The Distracted Generation - Edudemic

A Visual Guide To Slowing Down The Distracted Generation - Edudemic | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it
I’m guilty. And I’m definitely too old to be considered part of the ‘distracted generation’. I didn’t grow up with a device in hand at all times, hopping from shiny thing to shiny thing on the internet. I use tools to help keep me from being distracted online. Distractions are all around with technology, and connecting …

I think teachers and parents have to work at finding ways to integrate various modes of learning i.e. digital and cursive into children's learning.

Ricard Garcia's curator insight, May 15, 2014 4:32 AM

Innovative as we want to be, we can't escape this real fact: Our kids tend to be more 'unfocused'. Let's have a look at how we could solve it..  or at least try it!

Change Agents are Leaders: The four transitions toward culture change in your school

Change Agents are Leaders: The four transitions toward culture change in your school | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it
Change, culture and leadership are concepts that are inseparable. Achieving the desired culture for your team or school requires a process of change, and leadership is essential to make this happen...
Library Staff's insight:

Changing culture is one of the most difficult transformations in an institution. Teachers are often resistant to change, clinging on to the past in desperation. Research provides the first step and visionary leaders drive the process.

Three Ways to Teach Yourself Something New

Three Ways to Teach Yourself Something New | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it

If you look closely at people who are succeeding in this new digital world of work, you’ll notice they have something in common: they’re fast learners and they’re willing to adapt. If you want to grow as a person and a worker and if you want to gain skills that will help you take that next step in your career, you’ll probably have to learn those skills on your own.

 

In the post-recession workplace, your company probably isn’t going to send you to a conference so you can learn that new skill that will make you an even more valuable employee … Your boss probably doesn’t have time to hold your hand as you figure out how to use a new tool that will make your team more efficient. And it’s unlikely you’ll be encouraged to spend your workday focusing on forward-looking, innovative projects that will really help you grow.

How School Libraries Are Staying Relevant | Livability

How School Libraries Are Staying Relevant | Livability | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it
Award-winning school libraries turn to technology to keep kids coming. Innovation turns these once-isolated book repositories into bustling hubs of learning – and fun.
Library Staff's insight:

It's not the technology that is important in itself, but the enabling it allows. Libraries are technology hubs, but also community spaces, makerspaces, places to research as well as read. Collaboration, connection and sharing meet in the library.

Are You Teaching Content Or Teaching Thought? - | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it

Thinking is troublesome….It also resists uniformity (and education loves uniformity)...And whether it knows it or not, education has a thinking problem. 

Library Staff's insight:

Is the focus on the content or on the process? As a profession are we really interested in creative and critical thinking or imparting a controlled package?

Relationships: Who needs them?

Relationships: Who needs them? | Learning space for teachers | Scoop.it

Educators, more than ever, need to be able to take a new idea and “run it up the flagpole”. The responses to that idea however need to come from people who have a clue. The relationships that educators count on need to be with people who are relevant and open to new ideas.

Library Staff's insight:

All teachers should read this. And be open to new ideas.

Des idées évidentes mais sans doute pas encore pour tout le monde !

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 6, 2014 12:55 PM

Relationships are at the centre of education. It is no longer teacher-centred or learner-centred. In a sense, teachers and students are learning alongside each other. I am not sure it will always be the teacher leading the way although they have to be willing to know when to let go and when to take charge. Content is still incredibly important in that unless it connects to the lives of teachers and students it is not practical and meaningful. Technology is rarely seamlessly integrated.

Schools that have moved away from the traditional silo model are becoming centres of innovation. We have to teach into the unknown, teach students to be self-evolving learners in order to meet challenges.Schools need to embrace constant change and the methodology of constant change.

50 Inspiring TED Talks For Teachers: Updated For 2014

"The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.

 

So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher."

The communication explosion reaches its peak when you explore the endless avenues running through TED Talks. Moreover, the title educator embodies many forms within these talks.

So it’s precisely for this reason that any educator benefits from so many of these talks. Each speaker reveals his or her passion of a view or a subject with the enthusiasm of a first-year teacher.

Using TED Talks to convey an important message or spark creativity might be more effective in teaching students than an individual agenda or preconceived notion of what should be said. Furthermore, TED Talks challenges educators everywhere to think differently and encourage the same in their students.

These are the best TED Talks for any educator because they make us laugh, warm our hearts, break down barriers, and always inspire us to dig a little deeper and push a little harder, challenging your educator perspective.
