What Happened On Easter Island?

What Happened On Easter Island? | TESOL | Scoop.it
Whatever happened on Easter Island, it wasn't good. Polynesians landed there, farmed, thrived, built their famous statues, and then things went very bad, very fast. Sixteen million trees vanished. What happened? Was this a case of ecological collapse? Not exactly, say two anthropologists. It was, arguably, worse than that.

Promoting a Culture of Learning

Promoting a Culture of Learning | TESOL | Scoop.it
Learning is a culture.

It starts as a culture with the students as human beings needing to understand their environment. And it ends as a culture with students taking what we give them and using it

Create the culture of learning by giving room for students to apply what they have learnt without the fear of failing. Even when they do fail, instill in them the motivation to rise up once again.

41 Neuroscience Terms Every Teacher Should Know

41 Neuroscience Terms Every Teacher Should Know | TESOL | Scoop.it

"As education continues to evolve, adding in new trends, technologies, standards, and 21st century thinking habits, there is one constant that doesn’t change. The human brain. But neuroscience isn’t exactly accessible to most educators, rarely published, and when it is, it’s often full of odd phrasing and intimidating jargon. Worse, there seems to be a disconnect between the dry science of neurology, and the need teachers have for relevant tools, resources, and strategies in the classroom. Judy Willis, teacher, neuroscientist, and consultant has put together an A-Z glossary of relevant neuroscience terms for teachers and administrators to help clarify the jargon." | by Judy Willis

The Biggest "Game-Changer" in Education

The Biggest "Game-Changer" in Education | TESOL | Scoop.it

 "What do you see as the big 'game changer' in education?"

 

The biggest game changer in education is not out there (as I point all around me).  It is in here (as I point to my head, but symbolizing all of our brains, not just mine) and has ALWAYS been in here (pointing to my chest, around the heart area).  

 

The “game changer” is, and always will be, being open to new learning opportunities, doing something with them, and making that human connection to our learners.

 

The best teachers have always done this, and will continue to do so.

Always. Some teachers are themselves "life-long leaners" open to the rules changing, and developing their skills in the process.

Pronunciation of 'ed' endings | Blog About ESL | TESOL | Scoop.it
Read the rules of the pronunciatoin of 'ed' endings in English. We used 'ed' endings for the past form of regular verbs, both past simple and past participle.

Anne van der Graaf's insight:

This is one of the hardest things to explain to ESL - EAL/D students as there is so much confusion with the rules about past tense in English.

Art Makes You Smart

Art Makes You Smart | TESOL | Scoop.it

"For many education advocates, the arts are a panacea: They supposedly increase test scores, generate social responsibility and turn around failing schools. Most of the supporting evidence, though, does little more than establish correlations between exposure to the arts and certain outcomes. Research that demonstrates a causal relationship has been virtually nonexistent. A few years ago, however, we had a rare opportunity to explore such relationships when the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Artopened in Bentonville, Ark. Through a large-scale, random-assignment study of school tours to the museum, we were able to determine that strong causal relationships do in fact exist between arts education and a range of desirable outcomes. Museum visits increase test scores, generate social responsibility and increase appreciation of the arts by students." | by Brian Kisida

Mini clickable cards help explain common Google terms, processes, & concepts that people often don't use properly or don't understand.  A useful tool for teachers who need clarification AND a useful teaching tool to use WITH students during a lesson or as a tutorial prior to independent learning & research.
