Can We Create a Culture That Values Good Teaching?

Can We Create a Culture That Values Good Teaching? | Learning on the Digital Frontier | Scoop.it
We like to talk about the value of pedagogy, but we never seem to get around to rewarding it.

Bob Irving's insight:

Addresses mostly higher ed. A welcome approach from uninformed teacher bashing. Truly great teachers are the most influential people on the planet.

Alexa SHdez's curator insight, May 27, 11:39 AM

El docente puede inculcar cultura puesto que influye como enseña y demuestra su forma de enseñanza y la forma en como evalúa.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 27, 11:55 AM

Good teaching is probably happening without us realizing it. I read an article that suggested good teaching is about raising the standards for learning. It is a mindful experience.

Michel J. Boustani's curator insight, May 28, 8:15 AM

The title says all!

Free Technology for Teachers: Scratch Jr. Provides a Great Environment for Learning About Programming

Free Technology for Teachers: Scratch Jr. Provides a Great Environment for Learning About Programming | Learning on the Digital Frontier | Scoop.it
Earlier this morning I received an email from a subscriber to the PracticalEdTech.com newsletter. She was looking for suggestions on programming apps. One that came mind immediately is Scratch Jr. Scratch Jr. is based on the popular online Scratch program in which students can learn to program. Scratch Jr for iPad uses the same drag and drop programming principles used in Scratch. On Scratch Jr students can program multimedia stories and games.
