TED Talks Education: "Build Relationships with Your Students."

TED Talks Education: "Build Relationships with Your Students." | Pedagogy and technology of online learning | Scoop.it
“We’re educators. We’re born to make a difference,” says Rita Pierson, who has spent 40 very dedicated years as an educator. The difference she refers to is not only helping students learn, but being a positive force in their lives. In her TED Talk, she calls on teachers to build relationships with their students, no matter how challenging that may be. Pierson shares examples of gestures large and small to bolster students’ self-esteem, down to how she marked a quiz that a student had failed.

Transformational%20Teaching.pdf

diane gusa's insight:

Successful teaching involves much more than the transmission of content and skills. Our ultimate goal is to create independent, self-directed, self-motivated learners who are capable of critiquing and directing their own work; who are open to alternative viewpoints; and who have strongly developed higherorder thinking skills.

9 major types of visual content

What are we specifically talking about when we talk about visual content? I sometimes lose track of this myself. There will eventually be an end product to a visual content strategy. Here are the most common ways that marketers create visual content.

  • Eye-catching, creative photography --- think stock photos or Instagram pics
  • Video --- YouTube, Vimeo, or Wistia embedded right into a post or shared directly to social media
  • Screenshots --- helpful images of your product or workflow
  • Infographics --- visual information, either super long and meaty or bite-sized and informative
  • Data visualization --- standalone charts and graphs (example)
  • Comics --- relevant comic strips or cartoons (example)
  • Memes --- popular memes customized to fit the context of your post or update (example)
  • Visual note-taking --- casually-designed layout of ideas, typically text-heavy (example)
  • Miscellaneous graphics --- images that complement the content, e.g. the images in the above section on Golden Ratio and Fibonacci Sequence
