How does new media facilitate and support deep learning? Resources gathered here have a distinct "research into practice" flavour. (I'm trying to take "curation" seriously; I add to this resource very slowly.)

Teachers of all kinds can find fresh resources -- and inspiration -- in this batch of TEDTalks. Some talks may shake your worldview: Sir Ken Robinson questions the very basis of our education system, while Erin McKean does the same for our most sacred of reference books, the dictionary. Others (like Dave Eggers) celebrate the extraordinary power of teachers and schools -- and share ways you can help them.

Look here for pointers to amazing classroom tools and techniques.

Knowing and Learning Mathematics for Teaching: Proceedings of a Workshop

Knowing and Learning Mathematics for Teaching: Proceedings of a Workshop | Learning | Scoop.it
There are many questions about the mathematical preparation teachers need. Recent recommendations from a variety of sources state that reforming teacher preparation in postsecondary institutions is central in providing quality mathematics education to all students. The Mathematics Teacher Preparation Content Workshop examined this problem by considering two central questions:

* What is the mathematical knowledge teachers need to know in order to teach well?
* How can teachers develop the mathematical knowledge they need to teach well?

The Workshop activities focused on using actual acts of teaching such as examining student work, designing tasks, or posing questions, as a medium for teacher learning. The Workshop proceedings, Knowing and Learning Mathematics for Teaching, is a collection of the papers presented, the activities, and plenary sessions that took place.

Some Pedagogical Tips for Teaching Statistics.

Some Pedagogical Tips for Teaching Statistics. | Learning | Scoop.it
(The ideas here have wide general application. A quick easy read.)
Some suggestions are presented for teaching statistics. It is helpful to use a framework called backward instructional design, which consists of a series of steps that guide a teacher in constructing effective instruction. The first step in selecting the right pedagogy is to identify essential understandings and skills. Then, assessments that are the best measure of these understandings and skills need to be designed. Once these steps are completed, appropriate pedagogy to help students acquire and demonstrate their understanding and skills can be specified. A review of the literature yields some suggestions for college teaching that can be grouped in to categories of: (1) overcoming fear and anxiety; (2) lecturing creatively; (3) motivating students; and (4) using engaging discussions.

Knowing What Students Know: The Science and Design of Educational Assessment

Knowing What Students Know: The Science and Design of Educational Assessment | Learning | Scoop.it
Knowing What Students Know essentially explains how expanding knowledge in the scientific fields of human learning and educational measurement can form the foundations of an improved approach to assessment. These advances suggest ways that the targets of assessment-what students know and how well they know it-as well as the methods used to make inferences about student learning can be made more valid and instructionally useful. Principles for designing and using these new kinds of assessments are presented, and examples are used to illustrate the principles. Implications for policy, practice, and research are also explored.

Teaching Guide for Graduate Student Instructors - Theories of Learning -

Although there are many different approaches to learning, there are three basic types of learning theory: behaviorist, cognitive constructivist, and social constructivist. This section provides a brief introduction to each type of learning theory. The theories are treated in four parts: a short historical introduction, a discussion of the view of knowledge presupposed by the theory, an account of how the theory treats learning and student motivation, and finally, an overview of some of the instructional methods promoted by the theory is presented.

The Pedagogical Patterns Project

Patterns are designed to capture best practice in a specific domain. Pedagogical patterns try to capture expert knowledge of the practice of teaching and learning. The intent is to capture the essence of the practice in a compact form that can be easily communicated to those who need the knowledge. Presenting this information in a coherent and accessible form can mean the difference between every new instructor needing to relearn what is known by senior faculty and easy transference of knowledge of teaching within the community.
