How the Power of Interest Drives Learning

How the Power of Interest Drives Learning | Pimp my Pedagogy | 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.

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.

How Coaching Can Impact Teachers, Principals, and Students

How Coaching Can Impact Teachers, Principals, and Students | Pimp my Pedagogy | Scoop.it

 

Finally, the Annenberg report determined that coaching supports collective leadership across a school system. An essential feature of coaching is that it uses the relationships between coaches, principals, and teachers to create the conversation that leads to behavioral, pedagogical, and content knowledge change.

 

Effective coaching distributes leadership and keeps the focus on teaching and learning. This focus promotes the development of leadership skills, professional learning, and support for teachers that target ways to improve student outcomes...

Stephen Basden's comment, September 12, 2013 5:30 PM
What I learned from this article is how a good coach on the field, can help a student's performance in the classroom. Strong and successful sports programs create atmospheres on campuses that help success in the classroom. Principles should take this into mind when hiring a coach. They can't just hire somebody with a good playbook but rather role models and well respected individuals that will create young men and women who challenge themselves outside of sports.

In this particular article, what I found most educational is when the author said "Coaching is an essential component of an effective professional development program. Coaching can build will, skill, knowledge, and capacity because it can go where no other professional development has gone before: into the intellect, behaviors, practices, beliefs, values, and feelings of an educator. " This is such a powerful statement. I have for years personally seen how coaching affects an individual. I had a football coach in high school that demanded the best from us not just on the field but in the classroom and as a person. This coach meant a lot to me, he was very knowledgeable, successful, and well respected that I treated his word like gospel. During the season I actually saw an increase in grades and personally happiness. Coaches can have a personal relationship with their players that no teacher, principle, or other faculty member can imitate. Sports is a powerful tool and when used correctly can change lives; not only of that individual but his peers too.

I selected because the title really grabbed my attention. Often times we hear how sports can really help a student or employee in their respective environments so I thought it was really interesting to see an article on how teachers can also benefit from sports. A good sports program directly translate into a good academic program at an institution.

This article gave me even more of an understanding on exactly how much sports affect all aspects of life. Sports go way beyond the playing field, they carry over into relationships and even occupations. Everything in life you do that isn't individual, needs teamwork. Whether that be wife and husband or employee and employer, sports have and continue to prove that teamwork gets things done the best. Sacrificing personal agendas to achieve greater goals is a must and sports have taught us this over the years.

Listening for Student Voices | Critical Pedagogy | HYBRID PEDAGOGY

Listening for Student Voices | Critical Pedagogy | HYBRID PEDAGOGY | Pimp my Pedagogy | Scoop.it

by Chris Friend and Sean Michael Morris

 

Teachers don't teach; instructors don't really instruct. The lecture-based course fell out of favor years ago, and we know today to bring front and center the role students play in their own learning. “Education,” says Paulo Freire, “becomes the practice of freedom, the means by which men and women deal critically and creatively with reality and discover how to participate in the transformation of their world.” When critical and independent thinking are the most valuable products of learning, we must ask and make space for students to work and create on their own. It isn’t enough for them to take notes and then recite; learners must invent -- not just the products of their knowledge, but also their own learning.
