Siti Noraisha Mohamed Senin's curator insight, March 4, 5:52 AM

Researchers at the University of Leicester have proven that students assign the most authority to teachers who care about them. If this is true, then you are demonstrating a wonderful principle: that respect comes from kind behavior.

Three Lines of Resistance: Ethics, Critical Pedagogy, and Teaching Underground

Three Lines of Resistance: Ethics, Critical Pedagogy, and Teaching Underground | St Mark's Learning Leadership Centre | Scoop.it
It is easy for those of us invested in critical pedagogy to see need for major change in education in the U.S. It is also easy for us to write highly ideological manifesti that make sweeping philosophical statements about how things should be.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 29, 9:17 AM

The challenge of major and substantial organizational structural change is impeded by institutional inertia that many hold on to while saying they want change. Worse yet those who promote themselves as changers often are the most resistant to deep, meaningful change. The key are other lines of resistance. Personal ethics, critical pedagogy, and doing what is necessary underground are part of that solution. Eventually, we need to step up and take it the forefront.

27 Ways To Inspire Innovative Thinking In Students

27 Ways To Inspire Innovative Thinking In Students | St Mark's Learning Leadership Centre | Scoop.it

"Innovating thinking is one of those awkward concepts in education–one that is often espoused, but isn’t measured, reported on, trained around, or celebrated. It’s just sort of there.

 

Innovative thinking in students will flower when we design classrooms that absolutely can’t survive without it. Same with critical thinking, self-direction, creativity, and so on. Until we reach that point, it’s on the shoulders of the classroom teacher to tease it out of students through a combination of inspiration, modeling, scaffolding, and creating persistent opportunity."

The Science of Attention- How To Capture & Hold Attention of Distracted Students

The Science of Attention- How To Capture & Hold Attention of Distracted Students | St Mark's Learning Leadership Centre | Scoop.it

"How long can you reasonably expect your students to pay attention during your lessons? Some psychologists claim the typical student’s attention span is about 10 to 15 minutes long, yet most university classes last 50 to 90 minutes. Students’ attention levels vary widely based on factors like motivation, emotion, enjoyment, and time of day."

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | St Mark's Learning Leadership Centre | Scoop.it
Teachers who work silently, don’t tweet, blog and discuss ideas with people around the world are obsolete. Teachers are no longer working locally but globally and it’s our job to share what we do and see what others are doing. If a teacher is no longer learning then he shouldn’t be teaching other people.We should all be tweeting, blogging and sharing what works and doesn’t work, get and give advice to and from co-workers around the world. We should constantly be improving our craft because professional development isn’t a 3 hour workshop once a month but a lifelong process.“We do not learn from experience…we learn from reflecting on experience.” -John DeweyLearn more:- http://www.scoop.it/t/21st-century-learning-and-teaching/?tag=Rise+of+the+Professional+Educator

10 Ways To Be A More Reflective Teacher

10 Ways To Be A More Reflective Teacher | St Mark's Learning Leadership Centre | Scoop.it

 

"Teaching isn’t easy.

It will challenge your content knowledge, pedagogical skills, charisma, diplomacy, communication, statistical analysis skills, and a dozen other strands you didn’t know where strands. Some teachers may try to tell you that being happy doesn’t matter. That it’s about results. Data. Performance. Or more rhetorically, the students."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 18, 8:44 PM

How can we become better teachers? One way is to reflect on our practice. There are times when we team teach or collaborate, but for most teachers our days are spent in our classroom with our students. This post provides 10 great suggestions on ways to reflect on your teaching. Below are a few of the ideas.

* Record video of your lessons (and then share the video with colleagues and have them provide feedback also).

* Ask the students for feedback (this may be a bit scary, but chances are they will have some insights that would assist you)

* Surround yourself with enthusiasm & possibility (all too often we see the negative...try going in the opposite direction and see what happens.

Seven additional ideas are found in this post. Check it out and make some notes for what you might try next year.

“If I demand excellence from my students, I must first demand excellence from myself.”
I often meditate on these words. As classroom educators we always want our students to excel at what they put their minds to, and to always put their best foot forward when they try; however, oftentimes that is not what teachers expect from themselves.
Unfortunately, many of our teachers have become stagnant. They do what is required of them based on the contract they signed and no ...
