Do I Need a Digital Teaching Portfolio?

Do I Need a Digital Teaching Portfolio? | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Designing a well-organized and professional teaching portfolio can give you an edge in a competitive job market, and help you score high marks on your school's teacher evaluation form. It is, however, a time-consuming endeavor (the average portfolio takes about two to three days of work), and once built, your portfolio will require regular attention.

Gary Harwell's insight:

We do need to create one of these if we want to go forward.

A digital portfolio helps organize the artifacts that may otherwise fall by the wayside forgotten. I can appreciate the business card analogy.

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

Real critical thinking exercises seek truth. It takes daring and independent thought to stray from conventional thinking and discover truths previously unfound. It could be said that critical thinking is at the heart of dispelling great myths about our world and changing the way a society views and acts in their world.

Augmented Reality and Web 3.0 | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

Augmented reality could open up huge potential for education outside of the classroom and enable students to learn and interact with whatever is in their immediate physical environment at any particular time. It could also transform publishing and the way we interact with books and images by enabling us to transform them into interactive multimedia.

Formación docente relevante, interactiva, liderada por alguien que comprenda su experiencia, sostenida en el tiempo y que se apoya en una concepción del docente como profesional.  Así - según Karen Johnson - es la formación que desean los docentes hoy ... y que rara vez reciben! Por mi parte, como docente coincido plenamente. Como formadora docente, ¡tomo nota y me comprometo a trabajar para ello!

Teaching Online Can Make Us Better Teachers

Teaching Online Can Make Us Better Teachers | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

"If I asked you to think of the teacher in your life who influenced your own teaching most profoundly, would you think of an online teacher? My guess is no. If you're like me, your models of teaching are mostly, if not exclusively, face-to-face. 

 

But if I asked you to think of a skill or body of knowledge you've learned recently and tell me where you learned it, you might very well answer: online."

Aunque este artículo habla de diferentes temas en relación a la virtualidad, menciona algo que en lo personal considero es algo que todo docente virtual debe poseer.  Conocer a cada uno de sus estudiantes, no por esto me refiero a tener un relación personal con los participantes; conocerlos significa, el ritmo de aprendizaje que cada uno de ellos posee y su manera particular de aprender.  Si un docente lograr desarrollar estás habilidades, puede tener un porcentaje alto de éxito en el desarrollo de su curso virtual.

Stewart-Marshall's curator insight, June 14, 1:57 PM
Online teaching is different in so many ways. Traditional teachers now have to learn new ways of approaching their teaching methodologies, and also learn new practices in order to be successful at what they do. In this article you will discover few great insights on how to better yourself when you want to step up into this “new game”.
