Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education

Hypocrisy in the Profession of Education | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
Whenever I think of a teacher, I also think of a scholar. It has always been apparent to me that if one is to be an effective teacher, one must continually learn. Of course that is not always a pat...

 

As educators we must be learners first. If we are to be better educators, we must first be better learners. We may not always have a choice in what we learn.

 

After so long not being involved with learning, many educators do not know how much they do not know.

 

===> How can they make decisions on what they need to learn, if they are unaware of the existence of many of the things they need to know? <===

 

===> To be better educators, we first need to be better learners. <===

 

 

The biggest hypocrisy of the Education Profession is that the educators too often have become poor learners ===> unwilling to leave their comfort zones to improve their learning. <===

Teachers need to remain current too. Librarians can help them do this.

This is very very true! I strongly agree with the part where they wouldn't want to leave their comfort zones!
Julia da Silva's comment, May 25, 2013 7:49 AM
Agree. Teachers must be open minded and willing to learn more and more , (a lifetime edeavour , )to kep up and be equiped to teach well their "pupils" on overall advances bat specially their field of expertize ! Be up to date all the time to teach well and really enjoy what they do . I know I have been a teacher in the past .

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.

How To Design Your Own Infographics

How To Design Your Own Infographics | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it
Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects.

 

Infographics seem to be a real trend today, with new ones popping up daily on all sorts of subjects. From mortgages to ice cream, estimating software to infographics about infographics, there is very little now that hasn't been 'visualised' in some form. Many people don't realise that the term information graphic, or 'infographic' was first coined over 100 years ago, with the Coxcomb chart by Florence Nightingale in 1857 being one of earliest recognised examples. They have existed in many forms since then, but only in the past few years have infographics developed into the art form we know today.

Did You Know that a Book is also a Tool!?

Did You Know that a Book is also a Tool!? | School Libraries and the importance of remaining current. | Scoop.it

Gust MEES: In 21st Century we are mostly looking for online tools and we forget about the best tool we can have, a book! Do you still know what a book looks like!?

 

I read a lot, must have +/- 1,000 books at home, not counting the magazines of different Topics... I am a Life Long Learner (Hashtag #LLL) and it is a pleasure for me to  read a book, especially in summer time... I "eat" them actually, brain food ;)

 

I suggest to you to take a break from Internet and to read some times also a book and to use it as a tool also; thus meaning:

 

Read it quick, make some bookmarking, higlight the interested parts of it... write something (your ideas, thoughts...) close to the parts who made your interest and later on you read the book again, ONLY your personal remarks, highlited stuff and...

 

You will then remark how good a book is as a tool, an "Offline Tool"! OK, you won't be able to resell it (don't think for once at the commercial...), but at least you will have learned something and after a certain time when reading again as you might have a look on it for further researches (brain doesn't memorize everything...) your valuable remarks bring you back to your "old" thoughts and way for further thinking...!

 

My book selection in EN, FR, DE (books I read already over the last 10 years...):

 

French language:


- Les outils d’excellence du formateur (Sophie COURAU)

- Ce que manager par projet veut dire (Alain ASQUIN/Christophe FALCOZ/Thierry PICQ)


- Le syndrome de l’autruche (Rober GOBERT)


- Le syndrome de l’écureuil (Robert GOBERT)

- Les 5 formes d’intelligence (Howard GARDNER)


- Intégrer les intelligences multiples dans votre école (Thomas-R. HOERR)


- Aidez votre enfant à mieux apprendre (Bruno HOURST)


- À reculons, comme une écrevisse : Guerres chaudes et populisme médiatique (Umberto ECO)


- Guide pratique de l’écrivain (Paul DESALMAND)


- Publier son livre (Nicolas DELECOURT/Laurence HAPPE-DURIEUX)


- Le livre de la sagesse de Confucius (Les grands textes spirituels/Éditions du Rocher)

English language

I met personaly Bruno HOURST, Robert GOBERT and Wim VEEN and I am working since eight years (2010), giving courses about ICT (mostly for adults and seniors, but also for young people) based on Howard GARDNER’s and Daniel GOLEMAN’s knowledge…

 

===> By having understood the context of those books you will be able to: A win-win situation between course instructor (coach) and learners which brings out a maximum to the learner, the most important… And ALSO you will get Critical-Thinking Skills...<===

 

BTW: these books are still "in" and will give you valuable information about the digital age of learning and how people are learning...

Hi David, Keeeb is a good tool if you need to collect and organize web resources, images or video. It's better than Pinterest functionality-wise but it does not have its audience. So my advice is try it out and see if it does what you need to do.

The three that we introduced were Socrative, Poll Everywhere, and TodaysMeet. But there are many other tools for quickly gathering informal feedback from students.

 

Here are twelve tools that you can use to quickly gather informal feedback from students.
