Deliberate Practice

Deliberate Practice | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Deliberate practice is what makes us better at something. Most people think practice is play. By not engaging in deliberate practice they don't get better.
Sharrock's insight:

instructive quotes "Teachers, or coaches, see what you miss and make you aware of where you’re falling short."

 

“You can work on technique all you like, but if you can’t see the effects, two things will happen: You won’t get any better, and you’ll stop caring.”

Promoting a Culture of Learning

Promoting a Culture of Learning | Teacher Tools and Tips | 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
Sharrock's insight:

How do you balance promotion of valuing intrinsic motivation and rewards against extrinsic motivations, state assessments, and other societal values? This article begins the discussion with that question in the back of my mind.

 

What is a culture of learning?

excerpt: "The short answer is that a culture of learning is a collection of thinking habits, beliefs about self, and collaborative workflows that result in sustained critical learning."

How to Trust Your Students

How to Trust Your Students | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

When teachers trust their students, their pedagogy changes.

Progressive Instruction: Teachers are more willing to engage in constructivist practices, according to the dissertation research of Virginia Louise Durnford, because progressive practices require instructors to trust that "children are capable of creating their own knowledge" (Rainer, Guyton, & Bowen, 2000, p.10).Increased Differentiation: Classroom professionals are more likely to reshape old methods of instruction and try alternative strategies. They empower students who want to follow individual paths to content mastery.Democratization: They share more control of the class with students (Goddard, Tschannen-Moran, & Hoy, 2001).Improved Practice: Teachers seek out professional development (Tschannen-Moran, 2004) and grow their abilities.

Blended Learning: 10 Trends

Blended Learning: 10 Trends | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it

There is mounting evidence that complementing or replacing lectures with student-centric, technology-enabled active learning strategies and learning guidance—rather than memorization and repetition—improves learning, supports knowledge retention, and raises achievement. These new student-centered blended learning methods inspire engagement, and are a way to connect with every student right where they are while supporting progress toward grade level standards.

Dean Mantz's curator insight, May 5, 10:56 AM

As I was looking through my Scoop.it listings I came across this blended learning option shared by Dennis T OConner.  I like how the infographic addresses learning styles, student centered approaches and newer education trends like gamification. 

Janet Shivell's curator insight, May 6, 11:40 AM

Great info graphic on blended learning.

Grit and the Need for Achievement

Grit is best defined as a personality trait with two key components:

1) A passion for long-term goals

2) The powerful motivation to achieve these goals through the necessary work, practice, and time.

 

Recent studies show grit and a healthy need for achievement can have many psychological benefits.
Sharrock's insight:

excerpt: "Lack of grit is the reason why incredibly talented people sometimes never reach success. Because no matter how smart or talented you are, you still need to put in the work and have the resilience to overcome obstacles and continue marching forward when things get tough."
