Big Study Links Good Teachers to Lasting Gain | Teacher quality USA

Big Study Links Good Teachers to Lasting Gain | Teacher quality USA | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

This study is likely to influence the roiling national debates about the importance of quality teachers and how best to measure that quality. “Everybody believes that teacher quality is very, very important,” says Eric A. Hanushek, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution at Stanford and longtime researcher of education policy. “What this paper and other work has shown is that it’s probably more important than people think. That the variations or differences between really good and really bad teachers have lifelong impacts on children.”

Personally significant learning

Personally significant learning | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it
Why our kids need a powerful disposition to be self-managing learners when they finish their schooling, why they are unlikely to have it, and what we can do about it.

 

For some time now it has been obvious that middle class kids are becoming more vulnerable. This is so despite the fact that they may be living in nice homes with supportive parents and attending well resourced schools and having comforts that their Third World counterparts can only dream of. They are vulnerable because learning is not personally significant to them. Kids who learn to avoid the discomfort of unfamiliar ideas, who do not welcome the instructive complications of error, who think learning is a boring necessity because it is basically about preparing for tests, who are reliant on parents and teachers to tell them what to do, or to do it for them, who expect university degrees to be passports to employability and financial security – such kids are now in real trouble.

A Principal's Reflections: It is Time For Schools to Seriously Consider BYOT

A Principal's Reflections: It is Time For Schools to Seriously Consider BYOT | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

As we continue to move even further into the 21st Century, technology becomes more embedded in all aspects of society. As a father, this principal sees this firsthand with his son, who is in first grade. The gift he wanted the most this past Christmas was an iPod Touch, which Santa was kind enough to bring him. Then there is his younger sister who will regularly ask to use his iPad so she can either care for her virtual horse or dress Barbies in creative ways. As he downloads all of the apps on these devices, the majority of their time is spent engaged in games that require thought, creativity, and sometimes collaboration. His point is that many children across the world have access to, and are using, technology outside of school in a variety of ways. Not only do many have access, but also older children possess their own devices (cell phones, smart phones, laptops, tablets, e-readers, etc.).
