FlipQuiz | Gameshow-style Quiz Boards for Educators

FlipQuiz | Gameshow-style Quiz Boards for Educators | Mark of Leadership | Scoop.it
FlipQuiz™ was created to provide educators with a quick way to create gameshow-style boards for test reviews in the classroom. Traditionally, these are created (tediously) using posterboard, chalkboards, or dry-erase markers on an overhead slide. The review questions are usually even written on a separate sheet of paper.

Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | Mark of Leadership | Scoop.it
There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

We watched a video last night about the way the future was perceived in 1920. It was pretty interesting and very sci-fi. We have to keep that in mind when we predict the future. The person who presented the video to us is an IT person who made that very point. We don't know what is going to happen in the next moment let alone in 5 years.

Moving from the Middle

Moving from the Middle | Mark of Leadership | Scoop.it
The middle-to-high-school transition is fraught with stressful challenges. Principal among them is the change in school environments. Many students move from middle schools organized into interdisciplinary teams of students with teachers who know students well, into larger, more traditionally structured high schools that seem impersonal, socially unsupportive, and competitive.

What Skilled Teachers Think, Say, and Do

What Skilled Teachers Think, Say, and Do | Mark of Leadership | Scoop.it
Among the many challenges teachers face, often the most difficult is how to engage students who seem unreachable, who resist learning activities, or who disrupt them for others. This is also one of the challenges that skilled teachers have some control over. In my nine years of teaching high school, I've found that one of the best approaches to engaging challenging students is to develop their intrinsic motivation.

Why Educators Need to Know Learning Theory

Why Educators Need to Know Learning Theory | Mark of Leadership | Scoop.it
This article covers three categories of learning theories, objectivist, constructivist, andconnectivist. Connectivism is relatively new [2004]. Its theoretical principles describe how learning happens within a networked and connected society. Objectivist and constructivist theories have, and continue to have, significant influence on teaching methods and practices in K-12, higher education and professional development programs. Connectivism on the other hand, is associated with learning in an open virtual space on the web, typically in massive open online courses or MOOCs. The theories differ significantly in the perspectives on learning, though each has influenced and shaped instructional methods and practices to some degree. An example is assessment practices using standardized tests. This method is based upon principles of the behaviorist learning theory: instructor delivers content → student studies to commit knowledge to memory → completes an assessment → feedback is provided on his or her responses. This is one example I use here to [try to] emphasize the point that educators are better equipped to handle a variety of learning situations with an understanding of how these theories affect teaching methods.

I often wonder where we come up with these lists. I worked with a couple of people on the list and do not see them as influential. They certainly spent little time in the classroom. Teaching is not a theoretical activity. It is a praxis where theory and practice merge in a sort of ecotone.
