6 Powerful tools to curb your procrastination - Daily Genius

6 Powerful tools to curb your procrastination - Daily Genius | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

If you’ve never found yourself procrastinating on the internet, then you’re either a bionic super-human or you’ve never used the internet. For the rest of us, we can either choose to completely fall victim to all the shiny things on the internet or find a different way to help us focus on what needs to get done. Luckily, you and I aren’t the only ones who have had this issue, so some friendly folks at many different corners of the internet have made some apps and browser extensions to help us out.

How to Handle Stress in the Moment - Harvard Business Review via @larryferlazzo

How to Handle Stress in the Moment  - Harvard Business Review via @larryferlazzo | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

"You hear a lot of advice about how to reduce stress at work. But most of it is about what to do over the long term — take up yoga, eat a healthy diet, keep a journal, or get more sleep. But what do you do when you’re overcome with stress in the moment — at your desk, say, or in a meeting? Perhaps you’ve heard bad news from a client or were assigned yet another project. How can you regain control?"

Does Tech Hold Back Educators?

Does Tech Hold Back Educators? | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Teaching is not easy. It is a profession that requires educators to be relevant. Being relevant doesn’t come with age. Just the opposite occurs, and it requires work to keep up. Teaching is not a profession that enables one to stop learning after the degree is earned and the job is secured. Technology is moving us all too fast for anyone to sit back relying on old methods and tools.

Good teaching and pedagogy is all about relating to the students and curricula. It is invitational work that allows teachers and students to meet in spaces between each other.

What Is Differentiated Instruction?

What Is Differentiated Instruction? | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it
At its most basic level, differentiation consists of the efforts of teachers to respond to variance among learners in the classroom. Whenever a teacher reaches out to an individual or small group to vary his or her teaching in order to create the best learning experience possible, that teacher is differentiating instruction. Teachers can differentiate at least four classroom elements based on student readiness, interest, or learning profile:
