Stephanie Sandifer's curator insight, August 12, 2014 6:26 PM

Inspired by my post from earlier today about Robin Williams, I started thinking about how I have and how, if I were still teaching in a brick-and-mortar classroom, I would make my own classroom extraordinary for my students.  The following is a simple list of 20 timeless ways to make your classroom extraordinary for your students this year.  All of these can be done without technology and many can be enhanced with a wide variety of technology tools (and many of these can be done even in the online classes that I teach now) — but at the core of this list is an emphasis on student agency, independence, respect, care, engagement, and support for each individual’s learning process.

 

Your students won’t remember the worksheets you handed out or the math problems you made them work to practice their skills.  They probably won’t even remember some of the curriculum content of your class, but they will remember you and how you made them feel in your classroom.

Recorder of Learning – Using Photo Editing Apps | A Learning Life for Me | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"We will have two students be responsible for this role each week. Together they will be given a few minutes each day to record a few notes to remind them of the key ideas that they learned that day. We will also allow them to take photos to document lessons and their learning that they can then use at the end of the week to aid them in writing a blog post about what the class learned over the week. In order to make the most of these photos, we are going to teach them to use a few of the photo apps we have available to us on our class iPads."

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
'Learning thrives on error' "Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role! So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 15, 2014 6:18 PM

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

30 Habits Of Highly Effective Teachers

 

If you ask a student what makes him or her successful in school, you probably won’t hear about some fantastic new book or video lecture series. Most likely you will hear something like, “It was all Mr. Jones. He just never gave up on me.”

 

What students take away from a successful education usually centers on a personal connection with a teacher who instilled passion and inspiration for their subject. It’s difficult to measure success, and in the world of academia, educators are continually re-evaluating how to quantify learning. But the first and most important question to ask is:

Joy Leffers's curator insight, June 4, 2015 11:32 AM

These are great goals to set and try to achieve.  I feel each one really does make for teaching success.  I realize no one teacher will achieve all at once.  It will be good to review from time to time to see which ones I need to improve on.  The most important thing to me is that teacher success leads to student success.

This is why the RMUTL English camp was such a failure...It was  passive, boring and not a functional English language learning experience.

 

The Presidents "experts" are outsiders and not qualified language professionals...just sales people.

 

NO one is listening to the learners or the qualified teachers...Dr. Wiggins listens and other professionals listen too!

 

It was a very sad language learning experience and another complete failure from administration.

50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn - te@chthought

50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn - te@chthought | Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond.

 

Learning through play. Self-directed learning. Flipped learning. Mobile learning. Collaborative learning. Social learning. It’s all here. Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to. But this is a strength. As education technology grows, we can adapt to new learning models that take advantage of the fragmented but enormous potential of self-directed, creative, collaborative, and almost entirely mobile learning."

Many educators are doing Education 1.0; talking about doing Education 2.0; when they should be planning and implementing Education 3.0. This post compares the developments of the Internet-Web to those of education. The Internet has become an integral thread of the tapestries of most societies throughout the globe.
