Set Students Up For Failure? - Provoking the stumble... | Education | Scoop.it
I’m fascinated by our opportunity to teach our students about failure, its impact, and their ability to overcome their own failures. I know I would have benefited from this instruction as a high school student, so it’s often on my mind as I work through each week on campus. I’m always looking for something that …

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 25, 2015 10:10 AM

I chose this resource because I recently sent out my first educational tweet. I like the idea of using a twitter feed to disseminate information. Also, I've noticed that playing on phones is something that occurs regularly and perhaps it will persist regardless of how it might be perceived (I think it's disrespectful, but probably a battle not worth fighting). So, with the suggestions posted here, maybe tweeting can be used is a positive, constructive way that perhaps enhances a PD session.

Making the most of Bloom's Taxonomy

Making the most of Bloom's Taxonomy | Education | Scoop.it
Sadly when most educators think of Bloom’s they think of just the single domain, the Cognitive, that rules so much of what we do in education. Had we focused on all three domains equally we may have better understood the part we do use and be much closer to a holistic view of education where the ‘Affective’ and ‘Psychomotor’ domains are viewed as equals to the cognitive. It is a shame that partly due to our obsession with Bloom’s we ignore the important aspects of our student’s feelings (hearts) and their doings (hands) despite these clearly playing a part in the taxonomy.

Slowing Down to Learn: Mindful Pauses That Can Help Student Engagement

Slowing Down to Learn: Mindful Pauses That Can Help Student Engagement | Education | Scoop.it
One way to promote engagement and learning is to consciously create pauses throughout the day. We can create a sense of spaciousness in our classroom by slowing down the pace of our speech and punctuating our lessons with silence. Introduced well, this practice can improve classroom discourse.

Engagement is front and center in implementation of UDL. Great to see this sort of realization about allowing time to process and to "breathe". This is especially important for students with learning challenges. Way to go!

There seems to be lots of room for libraries and librarians to interject their skill sets with these 7 shifts, especially in the areas of digital literacy, research literacy, physical-to-digital, connectivism... My biggest takeaway, though, is the idea that none of these ideas require a huge influx of funding - they can all be done tomorrow with concerted effort in the education community.
