United we stand - Why the school is your secret weapon in classroom management...or it should be. - Resources - TES | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

UNITED WE STAND...Often, when I’m coaching new teachers with behaviour management, a lot of their problems can be boiled down to their mistaken belief that they should be able to handle all the crowd control by themselves. Nothing could be further from the truth. The school is an institution, and institutions are sustained by collaboration. Just ask the Roman Empire when they were straddling every known continent; or ask them again when they were on their collective ass. Teaching is one of the loneliest jobs in the world, which is odd when you stop to think about it, because the moments that you’re not surrounded by children or grimacing adults can be collected together over a week and still be ten minutes short of a heart beat.

10 Tech Tools for Teacher Training Courses

10 Tech Tools for Teacher Training Courses | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

I hope you have found something interesting here and this article makes you think a little more about how you deliver teacher training in general as the use of these tools isn't just restricted to tech training. They could be integrated into the delivery of any language or teacher training course and to some extent I feel that until tech tools are integrated into mainstream teacher training we aren't going to get the quality and quantity of digitally literate teachers that we need to really provide a 21st century learning environment for our students.

7 Ways To Create A Professional Twitter Presence

7 Ways To Create A Professional Twitter Presence | Personal Learning Network | Scoop.it

Before you go changing anything around on your twitter profile to make it more professional you must decide what the purpose of the account is.

Is your purpose to connect with friends and family?
Is your purpose to share important updates to customers of your store or online business?
Is your purpose to attract potential clients and to give them an understanding of why they should choose your product or service?

If your purpose is only to connect with friends and family then you don’t really need to have a professional presence in my opinion.

But if your purpose is business related then the following steps will help you create a professional presence on twitter.

Sometimes people will have a personal and a business-related purpose for using twitter. In those cases I recommend having a personal twitter account and a separate business related account on twitter.

Schools are under pressure to teach creativity and conceptual thinking to students to prepare them for the 21st-century workplace.

 

But at a recent imagination summit in Los Angeles, internationally recognized education expert Sir Ken Robinson warned against the tendency to treat creativity as something you can "add on" to the classroom.

So if you are not a part of Twitter and are rolling your eyes to what I am saying now, I urge you to read through the rest of this post on what I have learned and how you too can benefit from it.

An analysis of teacher professionalism, in light of personal learning networks and an online habitus

Discourses on teacher professionalism illustrate its contested nature, and professional traits or paradigms are heavily influenced by ongoing tensions between managerialism and teacher autonomy. Yet, a singular class teacher habitus commonly features across discourses, which directly links the mindset of teachers to paid work in physical locations, for example sites of schooling, with notions of professional autonomy clearly constructed in terms of the relationship between teacher and student. In recent years, many teachers have engaged extensively with new work, online, away from sites of schooling. The literature relies on the computer network metaphor to explain the new relationships, spaces and data arising from what some connectivists and others have termed ‘personal learning networks’ (PLNs). In identifying themselves as teachers and working around selected educational key words and concepts, these professionals are creating knowledge, identities, and social and other capital. However, online PLNs are not sites of public discourse, as access and participation are restricted by cultural codes and methods of artifact creation. Teachers online may find that, similar to their work in sites of schooling, performativity may offer them individual rewards, at the same time drawing them from micro-level generativity, to macro-level envisioning of change. The existence of PLNs raises two questions. Firstly, should we broaden teacher habitus to recognise new professional values, actions, commitments, capacities, skills, impact and collaboration, where activity in PLNs does not involve clients, stakeholders and colleagues from physical work locations? Secondly, how might we reconceptualise online work so that in future, discourses on teacher professionalism recognise teachers’ work across multiple sites, yet retain a singular teacher habitus? The lack of criticality and empirical grounding in the literature on PLNs must also be addressed, in order for
our conceptualisations of the varied work of teachers to move beyond narrow theories of e-learning.
