Wow... when did teaching and learning get so complicated? When we let the policy wonks who never taught create complex mandates!
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, Today, 12:00 PM
The five barriers are important to acknowledge: rigid curriculum and standards, fear to testing, and silos and schedules. Schools look and feel much like they did when I went to school in the 1960's. The one change is they are bigger and more crowded.

The article points teachers towards project-based learning. When well thought out, projects engage students and teachers. They offer potential for cross-curricular teaching and teachers teaching together.

10 collaboration tips for 21st Century Teachers

10 collaboration tips for 21st Century Teachers | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
The non-stop, brutal schedule that is a school year starts with all the finesse of trampling elephants, and doesn’t relent for the next nine months (not coincidentally, the same amount of time it takes to gestate a baby). That makes starting the year right important — and there are few more critical pieces to an educator’s success than collaboration.

Teaching is relational. Good teachers teach well because they relate to each child. They do not look for shortcuts and understand each child is exceptional. It is essential to know content. When I knew my content well, I taught better. It was less stilted and technical sounding.

Six Core Characteristics of Ethical Teaching

Six Core Characteristics of Ethical Teaching | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Ethics are no walk in the park. While many scenarios are black-and-white, easily solved with clear-cut answers, not every circumstance that a teacher comes across is so simply resolved. As a teacher, you may come across decisions that impact an individual’s entire life, from family to future. You need to be prepared to deal with that. Regardless of the severity of the dilemma, however, every teacher will need to take action based on a code of ethics. A code of ethics is a personal set of guidelines that you’ll use to determine the right course of action in a given …

It features a number of key websites and online resources arranged into different categories.  We did not cover all school subjects but we will be adding more resources to the list in the future.  Our purpose is to provide teachers and educators (and students) with a repository of EdTech websites that can potentially help them with the teaching of their content areas. The great thing about this work is that it is curated by teachers for teachers.

Jeannette Delamoir's curator insight, May 13, 7:24 PM
This short article delivers inspiring suggestions for nurturing and "managing" students whose emotional states may be getting in the way of learning. This gives me constructive ideas, but also cautions me that a full-on experience may overload some students if they are not ready for it.

Raph Svensen's curator insight, May 24, 11:57 PM
A great article and a timely reminder to always look out for the emotional needs of your students. I loved the idea of giving students an opportunity to have a personal chat with their teacher. What a great way to build rapport, respect and an understanding of each other within the classroom. 

In my experience in alternative schools where there is a high ratio of students who have suffered trauma, I have seen classrooms that effectively support these students. Similar to what was said in this article, one particular school had a corner of the room set up with beanbags and couches where students could retreat to and self regulate. It was called the "reset corner" - a place where students could safely "reset" themselves if they had been triggered in anyway and then come back to the class when they were ready. They also did a morning "check-in" where students needed to individually give the teachers a score out of 10 with how they were feeling, via an app on the iPads. No-one but the teacher could see the score they gave. If the student noted a low score on a particular day, then the teacher would have a chat to them to see if there was any extra support they could offer.
