Do You have the Personality To Be an Inquiry-Based Teacher? | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

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.

5 Reasons Pinterest’s Search Engine Is Better Than Google’s

5 Reasons Pinterest’s Search Engine Is Better Than Google’s | Teaching Tools Today | Scoop.it

Pinterest is a lifestyle searching tool for millions of people.

 

People go on there with excited eyes to look for amazing recipes to cook for dinner that weekend, find ways to dress to the tens for a special date, or find creative educational materials to teach children with.

 

Millions of users turn to Pinterest to enhance their lifestyle. And they are doing so by using the search function on Pinterest. Here’s a fun fact.

 

Did you know that Google has a search engine just for recipes? It’s been around for years, but almost nobody I know uses it.

 

Instead, most people I know automatically go to Pinterest if they want to find recipes to try out.

 

That’s not the only reason Pinterest is better than Google.

 

Here are 5 reasons why Pinterest’s search engine is better than Google.

I love how you can take things and change it; these channels are giving me many exciting things to try when I become a teacher.

MAKING YOUR MEDICAL STUDENTS AND HUMAN RESSOURCES MORE MOTIVATED!

If they don't where they're going to, let's them know at least where they come from!

Let you teach your students the universal history of the hospital and the medical school like I'm proposing it from Hippocrates of Cos to now.

Our university hospitals originated from Nestorians and Syriaq bimaristans! If you're interested in and you don't know how to do it, let you be free to invite me as a visiting lecturer. I'll do that for the best of your students. You just have to pay my C-airplane ticket and a 3-night-stay in a good hotel. Since Gl. Patton's army delivered my village on 4 August 1944 from Rommel's one, I don't request honoraria. This is a gift to the US people.
Prof. Dr. JF Moreau, MD, of Paris, France, is Honorary Fellow of the American Collège of Radiology. I was Visiting Professor twice at UCSD, once at the Downstate Medical Center of Brooklyn NY, and at the Arizona Health Center, Tucson, AZ. I lectured many times in plentiful main universities in the whole USA and Canada from 1979. I speak English and Spanish fluently.
