How to Determine the Correct Things to Focus On

How to Determine the Correct Things to Focus On | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Everyone wants to know the right time to simplify and focus on one thing, but nobody does. That’s what makes success so hard. Entrepreneurship isn’t like baking a cake. There is no recipe. There is no guidebook.

Robin Good's curator insight, April 29, 2014 7:21 AM



Speaking.io is a free web guide to how to present effectively in public curated by @Zach Holman, a subject matter expert, having spoken at a large number of conferences.


The Guide is elegantly organized in multiple sections, each containing a small set of more specific information chapters, and  all accessible from the home page index. 



Good resource for novice public speakers and presenters, as well as another great example of content curation at work. In this case the author has curated his know-how, notes and previous writings into one cohesive and well present gallery.


Helpful. Well designed. 8/10

A very nice summary of all the points you need to think about when preparing a conference presentation. "Because “imagine everyone's naked” is terrible advice."

The value of what might be called “fan literacies” to the teaching of skills and concepts related to a range of curricular content, including (so far) writing fiction, the Hero’s Journey, and digital literacy/netiquette.

Students Learn to Fail—and Recover—at Calif. School

Students Learn to Fail—and Recover—at Calif. School | Teacher Tools and Tips | Scoop.it
Educators at a Los Angeles-area high school believe teaching students to "fail productively" will equip them for success in the long run.
Sharrock's insight:

How do you track the changes you have made in yourself to promote problem solving behaviors in your students?

"Learning to Fail" is almost a cliche now, but do we really support learners in ways that they actually learn from failure?

In the article, it is shared that "students who were allowed to struggle with new problems on their own first were better at evaluating different variations of the problem and using different methods to solve it, and they showed deeper understanding of the underlying mathematical concepts. In observations of the classes, Mr. Kapur said teachers "consistently underestimated" students' ability to muddle through to answers on their own." Saying platitudes after a student doesn't succeed is not support. There are practices and systems that need to be in place.  What are those practices and systems?

Can teachers really change themselves to become the kinds of supporters students need so that they can learn through failure? What can you do to make those changes? What changes have you made so far?

A nice set of questions that teachers can ask to reach across a wide range of Bloom's Taxonomy.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 28, 2014 8:09 PM

I found the critical thinking we undertook with students was bringing them back to the "right answer" per the curriculum. Is this real critical thinking?

Sharrock's insight:

This is valuable at a few different levels. It all comes down to habits and skills. students need this kind of reinforcement from home, school, and other points of contact (clergy, counselors, employers, etc.).
