Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

It is a myth that we operate under a set of oppressive bureaucratic constraints. In reality, teachers have a great deal of autonomy in the work they chose to do in their classrooms. In most cases it is our culture that provides the constraints. For individual teachers, trying out new practices and pedagogy is risky business and both our culture, and our reliance on hierarchy, provide the ideal barriers for change not to occur.

Great post that highlights how educators, not just students, can be guilty of being stuck in a fixed mindset and how to revert your thinking back to one of a growth mindset.

Autonomy Breeds Change (in teacher development)

Autonomy Breeds Change (in teacher development) | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

A year and a half ago I decided to implement a job-embedded growth model at the suggestion of some of my teacher leaders. They desperately sought time during the school day to engage in professional growth opportunities, learn how to integrate Web 2.0 tools, and develop their own Personal Learning Networks (PLN’s). After some thinking and looking at various options inherent in the current schedule, I decided to cut all non-instructional duties in half to create a Professional Growth Period (PGP).

The site promotes the innovative and creative use of film in English language teaching and learning. All of the lesson plans revolve around the use of video and film to teach English. The site promotes cineliteracy, the ability to analyse moving images, and considers cineliteracy as a 21st century skill which our students need to learn. In addition, the lessons promote critical thinking in the language classroom, and  encourage learners to reflect on values while learning a  language.

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.

8 Online Games for Inspiring Students

8 Online Games for Inspiring Students | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

For many teachers, online games are the scourge of the classroom – a drain on students’ attention, time and potential. Any educator who has ever tried to teach a lesson using online resources or taken a class in the computer lab has probably experienced the frustration of finding a student on a gaming site instead of sticking to the intended lesson plan. But online games don’t always have to be a distraction

Reading level - Search Help | Teaching English as a foreign language | Scoop.it

Sometimes you may want to limit your search results to a specific reading level. For example, a second language learner may want more basic sites, a middle school teacher looking for educational material for her students may look for intermediate resources, and a scientist searching for the latest findings from the experts may want to limit results to those at advanced reading levels.

Very useful for lower level language students or those teaching them. The split into 3 levels is a bit basic, but can still sav a lot of time.

This method might make it a bit easier when looking for differentiated material  for your classes.  Remember, in Schoology you can deliver individual material to one student or set up groups within your class and deliver to a group as well.  This research technique may save a bit of time.

I understand that this may be an average, however I hope that it is kept in mund that this is not true for many students. I for one have to print out my online notes in order to use them to the best of my ability. Also, even if this is true, I believe that face- to - interaction is being lost in this technological age. but it is still as important as it has always been and that needs to be remembered - Justine Pearce

Blended Learning Implementation Guide

Blended learning means rethinking how class is structured, how time is used, and how limited resources are allocated. Compared to high-access environments, which simply provide devices for every student, blended learning includes an intentional shift to online instructional delivery for a portion of the day in order to boost learning and productivity. Productivity in this sense includes improvements to teacher access of data and its potential to inform instruction. Greater student productivity includes less time wasted on skills already mastered. Increased learning opportunities and improved student outcomes enhance overall system productivity.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, September 25, 2013 12:24 PM

We should have thought about restructing classrooms and the relationship we have with learning as teachers and learners.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 27, 2013 6:01 PM

The integration of technology and teaching is completely a good idea in my opinion. Especially given that we are living in a digital age, where learners have access to a lot of technical devices, which aim at improving and making life efficient. Thus by building curricula that welcomes the use of technology inside the classroom, will change the face of education - hopefully for the better. However my concern is the introduction of a 'customised' form of learning. Education is supposed to be unified experience where learners access information at the same time and at the same pace. It seems unfair that because there wil be fast learners in a class, that means they have to get to the end of the syllabus quicker than others. Everyone should receive attention in a similar manner, whether they understand the work or not. Teaching should not favour one person over the other.
