The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students | technology | Scoop.it

"Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

Would you allow your students to evaluate you as a teacher? I think that you would learn a lot.

Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic

Why Kids Must Be Taught Digital Manners Infographic | technology | Scoop.it

Teaching students the importance of having and using manners is nothing new to teachers. However, what has changed is the type of etiquette kids needs today—namely, the digital kind. True, please, thank you and excuse me are still significant, but in addition to these basics, students growing up in this ever-connected, social media crazed world require much more. Concepts such as online privacy, sharing and creating a positive digital footprint through the demonstration of responsible online behaviors are just as vital.

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic

The Teacher's Quick Guide To Digital Scavenger Hunts - Edudemic | technology | Scoop.it
If you've got a smartphone or a tablet in your classroom, you're ready for the adventure to begin! By adventure I mean digital scavenger hunts.

 

Digital scavenger hunts should be carefully prepared so don’t rush into them. They’re fun and, if done properly, will get students excited to do another one. If instead students spend the entire time asking you, the teacher, questions … then it’s not ideal. Instead, make sure the hunt is planned out so that the students can only ask questions of each other. That’s likely the best way to keep the active learning process in high gear.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, October 15, 2013 11:14 PM

Some great ideas here for engagement. A digital scavenger hunt is like the old WebQuest (oh no, now these are old!) where students follow a path to various clues. They can be very subject-specific or quite broad. I think it would be a good way of introducting a self-paced programme.
