PD - How Teachers are Learning


Via Tom D'Amico (@TDOttawa)
frankie roberts's insight:

I wonder to what degree the blended or even online PD approaches outlined in this intriguing report will be accepted by the teaching community here in Australia? To the best of my knowledge, the majority of PD offerings in Australia are the traditional one:many off-site presentations. There are some instances of in-house literacy coaches such as me in Adelaide who provide on-going mentoring with individual teachers. For our context, in which my teachers and I meet 1:1 weekly and then team-teach once or twice per week, coaching has proven to be an invaluable model. Sustainable teacher capacity is being built and improvement in student literacy outcomes right across the curriculum are being experienced.

Can we learn anytime and anyplace? Yes, we can. Is this part of a new hidden curriculum where we are tethered and shackled to our work?

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American

The Reading Brain in the Digital Age: The Science of Paper versus Screens: Scientific American | Literacy coaching | Scoop.it

Why not keep paper and evolve screen-based reading into something else entirely? Screens obviously offer readers experiences that paper cannot. Scrolling may not be the ideal way to navigate a text as long and dense as Moby Dick, but the New York Times, Washington Post, ESPN and other media outlets have created beautiful, highly visual articles that depend entirely on scrolling and could not appear in print in the same way.

from Nik Peachey---this article compares screen reading with paper-based text

Christy P.Novack's curator insight, December 9, 2013 12:10 AM

A detailed paper discussing screens vs paper. Lots of other links included. There is no research paper connected with article. I did a paper on practice modalites that involved print text vs media for learning and engagement. More papers are needed out there on such topics, as technology research studies can quickly become outdated.

Mirna Goldberger's curator insight, December 20, 2013 11:21 AM

I am definitely not made to scroll, my brain prefers printed paper.  I cannot focus and retain as well, when I read online.

Why You Should Be Using Video In Your Classroom [Infographic]

Why You Should Be Using Video In Your Classroom [Infographic] | Literacy coaching | Scoop.it

Using video in the classroom has come a long way from a TV and VCR on a cart to watch a movie during class (The standard about ten gazillion years ago when I was a student). There are a ton of different ways you can employ video in your classroom, from video feedback to educational videos about specific topics, there is a lot of possibility out there. Even if you know that this way and that are options for including video in your classroom, you might still be wondering why you should be using video in the first place.

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning | Literacy coaching | Scoop.it

If catching people’s interest is about seizing attention and providing stimulation, holding it is about finding deeper meaning and purpose in the exercise of interest. Caution is required here, however. Research has found that infusing a subject with meaning by stressing its future utility can produce the opposite of its intended effect.

Mary Starry's curator insight, November 7, 2013 1:12 PM

Several good take away messages here.  Liked the idea of focusing more on the questions we're asking.  Also found it interesting that students lose interest if we tell them how this will apply in their lives, while asking them to identify how this concept or task will be used in their future lives results in increased interest.

Via @David Álvarez: "Se citan varias investigaciones sobre la influencia de nuestros intereses en nuestra vida académica y profesional, aportando algunas pistas sobre la forma de sacarle partido, tanto desde la perspectiva de las familias como del profesorado. Si nuestras aficiones e intereses confluyen con nuestras aptitudes hemos descubierto nuestros talentos."
