Problems remembering student names? You're not alone... and here's some advice | Teach them English | Teacher Training & Development | Scoop.it
For the longest time, remembering names was a huge problem for me. In my first classes, way back when I started teaching, I was still struggling after several weeks and it got quite embarrassing in the end.

On Blogging and Social Media: How to search Scoop.it sites

On Blogging and Social Media: How to search Scoop.it sites | Teacher Training & Development | Scoop.it

Scoop.it is a great platform for curating web based content and collecting together your own portfolio or reading lists to share with the world. One of my major problems though with Scoop.it, used to be finding the articles and links I had saved and searching for useful articles on other Scoop.it.

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | Teacher Training & Development | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

Top 10 EduBlogs All Online Teachers Must Follow

Top 10 EduBlogs All Online Teachers Must Follow | Teacher Training & Development | Scoop.it

Here’s a list of blogs that feed my teaching soul, hunger for knowledge, and need for deeper insights into teaching,  learning and writing. There are so many wonderful blogs that it’s impossible to list them all here,  so I’m listing the ones that have been most relevant to my own professional development. As such, they should be relevant to any teacher who wants to turn online teaching and/or publishing into a fully-fledged career.

This isn't specifically about learning, but it's still a really good read.

Vloasis's curator insight, May 29, 2013 7:10 PM

With a barrage of comunication outlets and a time slate that is often fragmented like a broken mirror, the de-evolution of longform thought and speech is a new bedfellow---but don't worry; he doesn't take up much room.

Ms Rachael's curator insight, May 30, 2013 7:43 PM

This is a great read.  It really got me thinking about how life and education has changed over time.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: Awesome Poster on Bloom's Revised Taxonomy | Teacher Training & Development | Scoop.it

Med Kharback:

I just got this poster from a fellow teacher featuring the 6 thinking skills as outlined in the revised taxonomy. As you probably know, Blooms taxonomy that was first created in the 1950s has been revised by Krathwohl and there are two  main changes that appeared in this revised taxonomy: the first one is semantic in that nouns are now being replaced with verbs; and the second change relates to the order of these thinking skills. In the old taxonomy, Bloom highlighted the importance of evaluating and therefore placed it at the top of the  thinking continuum, but for Krathwohl Creating is the highest order thinking skill.

I can't resist putting this site up here even if it's more geared towards teaching English and not so much anything 'techy'.  It's really well done and the author has done a great job of personalising the lessons and finding topics which will genuinely engage the reader.  If you consider that all the resources are online and there are some videos within the lessons, it may just pass as techy?  In any case, a good resource is a good resource so I hope some of you teachers find it a good scoop!
