Some real gems in this list that can change the way you teach for the better. These apps include ones to support flipped instructions, that help students choose a path through the content, that help organise and sort out daily tasks, and that allow publishing to a global audience. A fantastic list.

Leadership: 9 things successful people do differently

Leadership: 9 things successful people do differently | Library Media | Scoop.it

If you aren’t sure, you are far from alone in your confusion. It turns out that even brilliant, highly accomplished people are pretty lousy when it comes to understanding why they succeed or fail. The intuitive answer — that you are born predisposed to certain talents and lacking in others — is really just one small piece of the puzzle.

 

In fact, decades of research on achievement suggests that successful people reach their goals not simply because of who they are, but more often because of what they do.

Making presentations is a skill every 21st century teacher should master. Students show more engagement and interest when including presentations in a lesson. As you probably know getting students attention in this 21st century classroom is one of the challenging and daunting tasks ever. So why not draw on the potential of including presentations in our classrooms to give life to our lessons and make them more engaging.

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers | Library Media | Scoop.it

by Felix Jacomino

 

As I prepare a presentation on 21st Century Skills, I find myself dealing with having to first be clear on what they are NOT. Only because for many, the term "21st Century" is synonymous with technology. In this post, I won't get into the details of why it's not.

 

What I would like to share is my realization that terrible times lie ahead for bad teachers. Conversely, there has never been a more exiting time for a good educator than today and the near future!

 

In order to make a statement like that, I owe it to my readers to give my definition of each type of teacher.

 

Bad teachers:

Do not want to learn new things.

Have "the book" lead instruction and feel the need to always stick to it.

Are comfortable doing the same lessons (the same way) year after year.

Never step out of their comfort zone. Live in their own bubble and do not see the need to live outside of it.

Only teach facts and assess the ability to memorize those facts ("Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer, deserves to be." -David Thornburg). 

Design tests to be easily gradeable.

Think that all progress in education are "fads."

Do not learn new things... oops, I already wrote that! It bears repeating because SOOOO much can be learned from other colleagues!

 

Good teachers:

Care whether their students find the learning relative.

Are ALWAYS looking for new ways to engage their students.

Embrace quality professional development as often as they can.

Learn from and share with other educators.

Have gotten this far into this post and are nodding their heads ;-)

 

My hopes are that we QUICKLY get to the point where teachers who do not inspire and engage will be seen as employees who are simply not doing their jobs and be let go. Or, they may move to schools that don't "get it" (yet) and find a safe haven there for now. Either way, it's time for ALL teachers to pick a side. And yes, there's plenty of room on the "good side" for bad teachers to make the change. Here's hoping!

Interesting good vs. bad

John Rudkin's curator insight, February 8, 3:07 AM

Interesting take, and of course true, i.e. "technology" is not 21st Century.  It is almost a constant - technology facilitates (or can, used correctly) good teaching, and offers opportunities to add variety, flexibility and relevance.  Used badly it can be irrelevant.

Below you will find links to iPad applications that target the various levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

I only included free apps that were "content-neutral" to make them usable across the curriculum. I also tried to include apps for the iPad only, but a few iPhone apps may have snuck in!

Each app image is clickable, and you will be taken to the iTunes Store to learn more about each one.

If you have other iPad apps you would like to recommend that meet the same criteria, please fill out the Google Survey at the bottom of this page. The results will be public so we can all benefit from each other's expertise. I also have another Web site with links to all things iPad if you are interested!
