11 Grammar Tips For Teachers And Students - Edudemic

11 Grammar Tips For Teachers And Students - Edudemic | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it
It’s grammar time! The following grammar tips are all about good grammar, and the things that make me cringe. It’s a subject so dear to my heart that I snuck in an extra board.

I love the cacti! You might find the tips useful, too.

At 155 slides, there's probably more than you'll ever need to know about TBLT - definitions, theory (Long, Pica), implementations (Norris, Van den Branden), criticisms, (Littlewood, Swan), modifications and new rationales (holistic learning, as a response to Abbott or Medgyes's notion of TENOR).  Really great overview with detailed analysis and references.

Sir Ken Robinson On Discovering Your Passions | NPR OnPoint

Sir Ken Robinson On Discovering Your Passions | NPR OnPoint | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

Interview with Tom Ashbrook

 

How education is jeopardizing creativity:

 

"I’m not blaming teachers for it. I’m not blaming school principals for it. I’ve worked in education my whole life and I work a lot with teachers in schools and I know they’re as concerned about this as I am and everbody else is. I think it’s to do with this culture of standardization. There is a view that the way we improve education is to make it more and more standardized. Many people in schools — particularly in this country, I’d say — are laboring under this sort of dead culture of continuous testing. And one of the results of it has been to reduce the curriculum, to narrow it. So a lot of the things that people, who may be be in their 40s or 50s, will remember from school — things like band and orchestra, putting on plays, lots of interesting after school activities — a lot of those things are being pushed out by this culture of standardized testing. It’s all done with an honorable purpose, I think — the intention is to raise standards, but the irony is it’s really not doing it. And more and more kids are pulling out of school. There’s more and more teachers, I feel, demoralized by it. And I know parents are very concerned about it too."

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, June 25, 2013 3:21 PM

The primary focus of education should be helping children to reach their full potential. That can't be done through standardization, because kids don't come in standard packages; it can only happen when we recognize that we need to meet each child's needs.

 

Standards have their place, but only with respect to the quality of what we offer to children and in ensuring that every child is offered the best possible education. Standards that restrict children's opportunities and growth need to be eliminated and replaced with an approach that enriches the educational environment for everyone.

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook

SMILE - Social Media in Learning and Education Handbook | LearningTeachingTeachingLearning | Scoop.it

More than 100 teachers from across Europe participated in the SMILE (Social Media in Learning and Education) action and undertook a pedagogical journey to explore jointly the challenges and opportunities involved when using social media in learning and education.
 
The outcomes of the project, funded by a Digital Citizenship Research Grant from Facebook, are now published in a digital handbook. You can find pedagogical materials and resources from the learning laboratory with many valuable reflections and suggestions on some critical aspects of the use of social media as regards school policies, pedagogical principles, professional development, responsible use and challenges to adoption.
