What If Every Teacher Tweeted? - Te@chThought

What If Every Teacher Tweeted? - Te@chThought | School Pedagogy | Scoop.it
"In spite of its popularity (500 million tweets per day from 271 million active users–almost 80% outside of the United States), most teachers don’t tweet. I mean, I don’t have data in front of me that says that, but judging from the schools that I visit, I’d put the number of teachers that actively use twitter–well, a very small number. In lieu of the pleadings from colleagues to “connect,” most teachers don’t use twitter, but are quite satisfied with facebook, thank you very much. And certainly facebook connects. As does instagram, tumblr, wikis, blogging, Google+, linkedin, pinterest, YouTube, et. al. It’s an exhausting list, but there is something about twitter that is both disarming and imminently useful at the same time."

Empathy: Is it Teachable?

Empathy: Is it Teachable? | School Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Empathy is, therefore, a learned behavior that can be taught. As humans, we are, after all, social animals.

 

We learn by observing. Parents, older siblings, peers, and teachers can teach the children from an early age the basic character traits of kindness, goodness, generosity, compassion, consideration, helpfulness and by setting an example through demonstrating how to feel empathy.

Mark Treadwell's curator insight, July 12, 2014 8:29 PM

An excellent introduction into this critical social capacity. Developing this capacity explicitly is a huge value add for young people but it also requires a suite of cognitive skills and development levels. Building awareness, even if the learner is unable to fully comprehend the entire concept framework is worth the time investment. MT www.MarkTreadwell.com

Play, Passion, Purpose, and Project Based Learning: Thoughts on Tony Wagner’s new book, Creating Innovators: | School Pedagogy | Scoop.it

This book, like Dr. Wagner’s previous one, has many different audiences; it is not a book exclusively for K-12 educators, and includes among its targets parents of young and school-age children, post-secondary educators, and, more generally, those many general nonfiction readers who have been influenced by Thomas Friedman to recognize that the “World is [Now] Flat” and it is essential that we confront the changing demands of our fast-changing times.

Andy Hargreaves speaks of Professional Capital in his recent book of the same title. This article reflects on the need for distributed leadership in schools and poses some interesting questions to provoke thought about how to approach a distributed leadership model as a way of recognizing the leadership potential in others.

14 Bloom's Taxonomy Posters For Teachers

14 Bloom's Taxonomy Posters For Teachers | School Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Bloom’s Taxonomy is a useful tool for assessment design, but using it only for that function is like using a race car to go to the grocery–a huge waste of potential.

In an upcoming post we’re going to look at better use of Bloom’s taxonomy in the classroom, but during research for that post it became interesting how many variations there are of the original work. While a handful of the charts below only show aesthetic changes compared to others, most are concept maps of sorts–with graphic design that signifies extended function (power verbs), detail (clear explanations), or features of some sort (Bloom’s Taxonomy tasks by level).
