Gerald Carey's curator insight, October 23, 2014 2:40 AM

Gardner exquisitely and substantially cuts to pieces the concept of 'learning styles'. He describes teaching students whilst taking into account their learning styles as "without evidence' and 'not coherent'.

He also makes three suggestions to teachers. I'll let you read the article to find out.

This made me think about not just how we as teachers feel about technology use in schools, but also, how do our students feel about it? We know many of them know more about how to use the technology than we do, so are we involving them in the decisions we make about use and purchase of technology...or are we doing what we've always done and assumed we know better than they do?

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

Deborah Welsh's curator insight, June 3, 2014 12:29 AM

We often don't see the creativity in ourselves or in others. Creativity can be learned. Having a growth mindset is a good beginning.

Thanks Allan!

Why You Should Be Using Video In Your Classroom [Infographic]

Why You Should Be Using Video In Your Classroom [Infographic] | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

Using video in the classroom has come a long way from a TV and VCR on a cart to watch a movie during class (The standard about ten gazillion years ago when I was a student). There are a ton of different ways you can employ video in your classroom, from video feedback to educational videos about specific topics, there is a lot of possibility out there. Even if you know that this way and that are options for including video in your classroom, you might still be wondering why you should be using video in the first place.

Do You have the Personality To Be an Inquiry-Based Teacher?

Do You have the Personality To Be an Inquiry-Based Teacher? | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it
If an inquiry-based system is to succeed, we’ll need really good human beings in the classroom who know their field, but who also radiate the kind of positive, non-judgmental love that helps students open their minds and hearts.

Via Gust MEES
Ness Crouch's insight:

It's important to know if you have what it takes and to know what you might need to work on to become a better inquiry based teacher. A MUST read!!

Interesting tension in this article between best practices and the personality traits of an individual instructor/leader...

 

L R Everitt's curator insight, November 25, 2013 3:30 PM

I absolutely agree with this premise: students need to feel the classroom is a safe place to take risks and even make mistakes, all in the interest of learning.  That sense of security comes from agreeing build a positive learning environment, which is a loving place to be.  Students, as well as teachers, have a lot of power to make or break such an agreement, so modeling this behavior and teaching students how to build mutual trust and respect is worth a small loss in academic instruction time at the beginning of the course.

The Rice Process's curator insight, November 25, 2013 4:13 PM
