Collaboration 1: Collaboration is the key influence in the quality of teaching - Ewan McIntosh | Digital Media & Learning | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

"Innovative teaching happens more in environments where teachers collaborate. In schools where teachers report more frequent collaboration with one another on teaching practices, innovative teaching scores tend to be higher... Teachers told us that collaboration can be an important mechanism for sharing teaching practices and for mutual support toward improving them."

Coaches Are the Multipliers That Schools Need

Coaches Are the Multipliers That Schools Need | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it
In her book, Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter, Liz Wiseman describes two types of leaders. The first, diminishers, are those who drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them or those who always need to be the smartest person in the room.

On the other side of the spectrum are leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them. These leaders are known as multipliers. They inspire others to stretch themselves to deliver results that surpass expectations.

A good rundown of the actions which identify teacher leaders who use their intelligence to amplify the abilities of those around them.

Teaching and Learning - Quotes for Reflection on Why Personalize Learning

Teaching and Learning - Quotes for Reflection on Why Personalize Learning | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

An educator from New Zealand has compiled a set of quotes around teaching and learning that are reflective of why we should personalize learning.  A few are selected here and begins with this graphic from Dr. Seuss, "Oh, the places you'll go!"  Is this quote something we would want students to be thinking about each day?

 

From the author:

"Students are born with a powerful desire to learn. Everything we do as parents and teachers must ensure that this powerful desire is kept alive. If there were to be one thing to be continually assessed it would be this desire..."

 

'We should turn out people who love learning so much and learn so well that they will be able to learn whatever needs to be learned.' - John Holt

 

'All human beings are born with unique gifts. The healthy functioning community depends on realizing the capacity to develop each gift'. - Peter Senge

 

'what a child can do today with assistance, she will be able to do by herself tomorrow'. - Lev Vygotsky

 

The principle goal of education is to create men and woman who are capable of doing new things, not simply repeating what other generations have done'. - Jean Piaget

 

'We are shaped and fashioned by what we love' - Goethe

 

'You cannot teach anybody anything. You can only help them discover it within themselves.' - Galileo
