"This is a follow up to a post I wrote, How Do We Learn?

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 24, 10:12 PM

Is the memorization of information an effective way for learners to retain information? According to brain research the answer would be no. It is critical that connections be made. This post by Jackie Gerstein discusses the need for:

* Context

* Increase context and relevancy

In the section on increasing context and relevancy you will find a visual of an Authentic Learning Matrix as well as a number of links to additional resources.

In light of the many advantages that integrating edtech into the general curriculum offers, to continue to deny students these opportunities seems like a hard pill to swallow. Edtech is no longer in the early adopters zone; no longer in the testing zone. It is well and truly here, and senior leadership not only has to accept such a fate, but take the bull by the horns and truly embrace it for what it is worth. 

For the sake of all its students, edtech must become an integral part of a school’s pedagogy.

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative

101 Ways For Teachers To Be More Creative | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"Creativity isn’t always something that just happens. It can take quite a bit of work to nurture, grow, and develop creativity, even for those who are immersed in creative and dynamic fields.

For educators, it can be even more of a challenge to inspire creativity in students or embrace your own creativity while trying to juggle academic requirements, testing, and other issues in the classroom. It may be difficult but it’s certainly not impossible, and accomplishing it can help to create a classroom environment that’s more motivational, interesting, and educational for both you and your students."

Jackie GERSTEIN: I was asked recently why I have a strong interest and innate understanding of the growth mindset. I believe it comes from a background of being an adventure educator, and even though it was not labeled as such, the adventure educator embraces a growth mindset when working with participants. The underlying tenet of adventure education is “You are capable of so much more than you can even imagine. I believe in you and your capabilities; and I will set up the conditions for you to develop and amplify that same belief in yourself.

Anna Sasaki's curator insight, March 22, 2:42 PM

There is a new programme which helps students truly understand the usage of math skills being taught in school. It is a game that students may play, which actually put the math skills learned in school into play. This solves the time old question of "when will I ever use this?" It is very fun and uses Google maps to manifest questions for each sections from grades 5-10. It is putting more use of the Google maps and helps others learn about geography as it is using the maps.

This shows another way to use Google maps, which uses a GIS system to track locations. The online maps presents many different opportunities of teaching others, through various methods, and geography can be present in any topic shown. Geography can help others learn through spatial recognition in the case of math, and many other ideas.

“Pray tell us, what's your favorite number?"...
"Shiva jumped up to the board, uninvited, and wrote 10,213,223"...
"And pray, why would this number interest us?"
"It is the only number that describes itself when you read it, 'One zero, two ones, three twos, two threes'.”
― Abraham Varghese, Cutting for Stone  

Matthew Connealy's curator insight, March 23, 10:26 PM

The use of Google Earth is becoming beneficial to Thomas Petra, a middle school teacher that is trying to make learning more interesting. By using Google Earth, he is able to teach lessons in a more interactive and applicable way. An example of this would be when his students learned about distance through the Alaskan dog sledders and their travels. The students are able to learn much more than the conventional way of learning and are able to gain a better sense of the phenomena around them.

 

Although this was used in a mathematical setting, Google Earth is only just beginning. Geography students would greatly benefit from this usage of the app, and more teachers should learn to harness this style of teaching. Students will be able to gain a better sense of what is going on around them, and know more about the world they live in.

What It Means To Be A Reflective Teacher

What It Means To Be A Reflective Teacher | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

Reflection is a fundamental tenet of learning; it is also, therefore, a fundamental part of teaching. Why it happens is a matter of humility. But how and when it happens–and with whom–is less clear. This is partly because there are multiple sides to reflection–length, width, and depth.

12 characteristics that make you a teacher-leader

12 characteristics that make you a teacher-leader | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

As a principal, it is important for me to remember that the success we experience in our school is thanks to the efforts of teachers and students, along with all the others who contribute to the life of a school. When I use the word success, I use it in the sense that we are growing and learning as a school and changing in ways that allow our students to have more meaningful experiences, ones that will better prepare them for their future.

The Rice Process's insight:

 

 

 Teachers who assume the role as leaders, position themselves as collaborators and supporters to both the faculty and the administration.  Responsibilities may include being a mentor, a trainer for staff development, a curriculum coordinator, to name but a few.

 

This form of school leadership creates the structure for collaboration and collegial learning.  The R.I.C.E. Process is a leadership challenge.  It challenges schools to rethink four areas of leadership:

Authority                            (Responsibility)Communications             (Interdependence)Decision Making              (Creativity)Skill Development             (Empowerment)

It provides a framework to understand the nature of organizations.  The R.I.C.E Process explores possibilities and frames responses to meet future challenges. The R.I.C.E. Process is a visioning tool to meet the leadership challenge.

 

Leadership respects the collective wisdom of the group and believes that an interactive model will itself produce new knowledge and that change is best effected by empowering people with new skills.
