Teaching with Twitter – Please check your baggage at the door

Teaching with Twitter – Please check your baggage at the door | school improvement process | Scoop.it

How-to’s and link roundups on teaching with Twitter has been done many times before, but the topic is worth frequent revisiting and refreshing, especially in the context of the #FutureEd initiative and the Pedagogy Project by HASTAC Scholars.

 

The goal of this review is to help think through if, why, and how to use Twitter in our teaching and learning – especially for those who remain skeptical.

Very nice sharing. Thanks

Christopher Resetar's curator insight, February 16, 1:01 PM

I really like this article because it is very effective at weighing the pros and cons of using twitter in the classroom.  Some of the supplemental links are also very helpful to look at and include content on how to teach with Twitter and how to avoid some of the pitfalls that can result from using Twitter in a classroom setting.   In general, I believe strongly in helping students to develop global competency (as we have discussed in class) and I believe that Twitter is one of the best and most convenient mediums to do this.  While I am slightly apprehensive about how and if it is even possible to use Twitter in an elementary school classroom I definitely see more potential in using it after reading this article.

BOLD: Bold Leadership is Not What You Think

BOLD: Bold Leadership is Not What You Think | school improvement process | Scoop.it

 

Bold leadership isn’t reserved for the chosen few, and it certainly isn’t limited to popular culture’s definition of big, brash, loud leadership.

 

Bold leadership is about the everyday behaviors we use to build trust, focusing on the needs of others, leading with confident humility, and vulnerably engaging with our people in authentic and genuine ways.

Be BOLD!

It is intereting to think about what is bold leadership. One must have quality in my opinion is presence : the quality of the relationship.

Ten Radical Shifts in Thinking all Leaders Face

Ten Radical Shifts in Thinking all Leaders Face | school improvement process | Scoop.it
Leaders fail when they don’t think like leaders. Leaders who think like individual contributors demoralize their team and devalue their leadership. Lousy leaders think like individual contributors....

 

From “I” to “we.” Leadership begins with ===> WE <===.From controlling people to aligning passions. Raise your hand if you enjoy being controlled. I didn’t think so. Successful leaders align the passions of their teammates with organizational mission.

The Geography and Literacy Connection

The Geography and Literacy Connection | school improvement process | Scoop.it

"What do you think of when you hear the word literacy? Depending on what you teach, chances are geography is not the first thought that comes to mind. But believe it or not, geography and literacy naturally share many similarities. And you can deepen students’ learning in both geography and literacy when they are integrated in the curriculum."

The geography and literacy connection helps new generation student apply common core to better be prepared in the 21st century for vocation and keen awareness of geopgraphy, history and the world around them. Common core allows them to apply critical thinking and connections to the wolrd around them including a thurough understanding of geopgraphy. History and geography are being integrated to apply a different way of preparing students and creating a better awareness of changes in our world. literacy will not only be focused on reading but studying and analyzing data and statistics that help them become better integrated in the world around them.

Ana Melo's curator insight, November 4, 2013 9:41 AM

Geography provides a lot of fundamental knowledge and gives you also a sense of place, which I find very relevant in times of globalization where you belong everywhere and nowhere simultaneously.

Chris Cividino's curator insight, November 8, 2013 12:06 AM

Understanding key terminology in geography is paramount to demonstrating deep knowledge of geographical concepts.

'An Industry of Mediocrity': Study Criticizes Teacher-Education Programs

'An Industry of Mediocrity': Study Criticizes Teacher-Education Programs | school improvement process | Scoop.it
The effort to rank programs, by the National Council on Teacher Quality and "U.S. News & World Report," has been controversial since it started, in 2011.

 

Colleges of education are "an industry of mediocrity" that churns out unprepared teachers to work in the nation's elementary and secondary schools, according to a highly anticipated report.

 

The report, "Teacher Prep Review," describes the findings of a controversial effort to rate the quality of programs at 1,130 institutions nationwide that prepare about 99 percent of the nation's traditionally trained teachers.

Se faz necessário criar estratégias de avaliação dos cursos oferecidos  e em contrapartida  avaliar as instituições de ensino seu currículo e programas de formação docente; 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 29, 11:43 PM

This is one of those issues that feeds back and forth on itself. Colleges of education are an industry of mediocrity, but so is K-12 education. There is a total absence of leadership at the political and bureaucratic levels.

Promoting a Culture of Learning

Promoting a Culture of Learning | school improvement process | Scoop.it
Learning is a culture.

It starts as a culture with the students as human beings needing to understand their environment. And it ends as a culture with students taking what we give them and using it

Via Gust MEES
The Rice Process's insight:

I agree. Creating a culture of learning requires intentional planning, shared practices and reflection. A culture embodies our beliefs and practices.

Siti Noraisha Mohamed Senin's curator insight, February 18, 11:02 PM

Create the culture of learning by giving room for students to apply what they have learnt without the fear of failing. Even when they do fail, instill in them the motivation to rise up once again.

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | school improvement process | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.
