Is your school on it's BYOD journey?
What part are you and the library playing in that journey?

This article may inspire or affirm you.

"While 1:1 devices are just “another tool,” we librarians can help best use that tool for purposes that strengthen student achievement and help all our teachers, the techies and the technophobes alike, to embrace the possibilities of the digital future."

For Teachers, Many Paths Into The Classroom ... Some Say Too Many

Linda Alexander's curator insight, September 15, 6:35 PM

There should be alternative paths to teaching for individuals with college degrees, especially in math, science & technical skill areas.  The caveat is that these job candidates must pass some sort of content area test, showcase their knowledge of the curriculum development & student assessment processes and demonstrate classroom management skills during the hiring process. Frankly, I don't believe classroom management skills are a given without hours upon hours of observation and practice. And I also agree that the for-profit model, as in charter school operations, doesn't fare very well.  However, the independent schools have used "content specialists" with college degrees for decades with enormous success.  If the higher education schools consistently provided top-shelf teacher candidates, the issue would dissolve all by itself. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 15, 7:06 PM

It is likely we need to rethink the way teachers are prepared for the classroom, but no preparation is not an option. We already are losing many teachers and the challenges are changing rapidly.

I can think of other words i.e. compassion, confidence, community, etc. Captivate is important and moving forward is essential. When we stop moving we stop learning.

 

One struggle is with the desire to measure success. Is it always necessary. Sometimes being captivated and catapulted forward might be enough.

Sharing what we do well is important. The challenge with social media is that it is not always clear the person sharing is actually in the classroom and when they were last there.

Very good look at the homework debate from both sides.  Not a right versus wrong argument, but clearly an interpretation argument.  What should or shouldn't be homeowrk and is it good or bad depends on how the research is interpreted.  Clearly very important as it also illuminate (slightly) the issue with appropriate assessment of understanding.

How do you explain a concept like Growth Mindset? | Purposeful Pedagogy | Scoop.it

I have written before about my thoughts around Growth Mindset. Whilst I appreciate the valid concerns expressed by others about the dangers of overstatement and the need for coherent informed implementation, I very much believe that Dweck’s theories about learning and growth have an important role to play in educating young people – for now and for the future – and that her ideas can really help the students in our school to go from strength to strength.
