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!

Mel Riddile's curator insight, July 14, 3:24 PM

"Educators worry a lot about the content of their courses, lectures and presentations. They spend too much time preparing lesson plans. Don’t get me wrong—content is necessary. If you don’t have basic content knowledge, you should not be a teacher. Yet, for real learning to occur, we need to change our focus from content to the process of learning. When you make that mental shift, your preparation for the class will be very different. You will put yourself in your students’ positions and consider whether material you want to discuss is even relevant to your students’ needs. What do you want your students to have learned at the end of the course, and why?"

3 Reasons Kids Struggle With Math And How to Help

3 Reasons Kids Struggle With Math And How to Help | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
3. Students Don’t Practice

The spiral approach to teaching math seems to be the preferred way that most school districts are having their teachers present today’s math skills. But, math is and should be systematic with learning basic facts.

Children aren’t practicing repetitively at home with the basics in order to build speed and have that extra exposure. Also, older children tend to watch and listen to their teachers present their math lessons in class, and they go home and think they truly understand what was taught. But, for many students; when they pick up the pencil and paper to try a math problem on their own, they can’t complete the problem independently. Students need repetitive practice when it comes to learning any new math concepts, in the classroom and at home.
