Teachers need real feedback

Teachers need real feedback | Professional Development Practices and Philosophy | Scoop.it
Until recently, many teachers only got one word of feedback a year: “satisfactory.” And with no feedback, no coaching, there’s just no way to improve. Bill Gates suggests that even great teachers can get better with smart feedback -- and lays out a program from his foundation to bring it to every classroom.

This is on the verge of Genius Hour.  Insight is exceptional... what is still to be understood is that content and skills can still be taught with even greater depth if components of traditional PBLs such as authentic audience, solving of problems realistically, and giving back are done not from a teacher giving a certain criteria w/in a PBL but giving no parameters and letting students' passions find the problem to resolve.  Now Problem Based Learning becomes Passion Based Learning... content, skills and scope are still there but now it is truly student-driven.

Teach teachers how to create magic

Teach teachers how to create magic | Professional Development Practices and Philosophy | Scoop.it
What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don't teach to educators. The science advocate (and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan) offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.
Kirsten Wilson's insight:

We are looking for ways to engage learners and breathe passion into instruction.  This TEDtalk offers insight and pushes educators to examine their delivery.  This along with the tenets of #tlap (Teach Like a Pirate by Dave Burgess) continue to help those of us called as instructional engineers to improve our craft.
