Un insegnante ha il ruolo di un mentore, è un modello, sa aiutare i ragazzi nelle difficoltà e li incoraggia a seguire i loro sogni... A chi di voi è capitata la fortuna di conoscerne almeno uno/a nella vita?

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, September 11, 2013 11:56 PM

I had the opportunity to tell my first grade teacher thank you 5 years ago. She actually had kept my first grade picture all these years. My teachers were great and school was my favorite place and I excelled there. So thanks to all the teachers that I did not get to thank. :-)

There's No Such Thing as "Just a Teacher"

There's No Such Thing as "Just a Teacher" | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

hat I have been an educator for almost thirty years, which means I have seen new teachers come and go. Some were never meant to be teachers. Teaching, to them, was supposed to be a cushy job with hours from 8-3 and weekends and summers off. Hello!? I am thankful that it didn't take these people twenty, ten, or even five years to figure out that teaching was not their calling. THEN, in walks a new teacher! S/he is the real deal and brings an aura, a presence, a passion, a willingness, a direction, and a drive to reach and teach. The first three to five years will make or break this great educator.

Why Technology Will Never Fix Education

The real obstacle is student motivation, and no gadget can create that.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, July 26, 5:56 PM

This post goes some way to explaining the 'Law of Amplification' and the social context in which good learning thrives. There are probably more reasons to consider, such as the type of motivation the learner exhibits, the encouragement and expectations of family and friends (not only staff), and the good disposition or habit of acceptance of delayed gratification.
