Best Teaching Practices to Engage Your Students

Student engagement and mobile learning
Kaitlyn Kaminski's insight:

Participatory Culture should not be a foreign concept to educators. Students are involved in this every day, we should know how they act in the boundaries of their own culture. It should be leveraged to allow them to feel their education is applicable to them.

How Can eBooks and Print Books Coexist Infographic - e-Learning Infographics

How Can eBooks and Print Books Coexist Infographic - e-Learning Infographics | Theories and Innovative Ideas in Education and Teaching | Scoop.it
The How Can eBooks and Print Books Coexist Infographic takes a look at ereaders and books, as well as why they can both remain useful for many years to come
Kaitlyn Kaminski's insight:

This infographic is fantastic. First of all, visually, second of all, content. These results are fantastic: People aren't ditching the print book, it's just that e-books are more convenient in certain situations (i.e. on the go; getting a book quick). I am a proud owner of print books, a kobo, and an iPad. I read on all three! This just goes to show that technology is good for some things - but it won't tear down the print book just yet.

What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’?

What Makes an ‘Extreme Learner’? | Theories and Innovative Ideas in Education and Teaching | Scoop.it
It’s the hunger for learning rather than raw intellect that distinguishes Extreme Learners from the gifted. Intensely motivated and harboring a breadth of interests, they also consider ignorance a temporary and reparable condition.
Kaitlyn Kaminski's insight:

I'm just going to highlight a few quotes from this article to think on:

“The most extreme thing is not being afraid to learn new things.”

"What’s the lesson here for schools? In short, standardization, repetition, and rigidity are deadly for the curious."

"Extreme Learners have indulged their intellectual passions in their own time and on their own terms. Formal educational institutions have little to do with it."

“'The main takeaway for teachers is, give students more flexibility and choice over what they’re working on,' Milton Chen said. 'Give kids the tools to identify their interests and gather information. And help them find like-minded people to work with.'"

Really great infographic that provides characteristics of young people today. Gen Y would be a category I fall into, however some of this I would disagree with.

What kind of educator and education system does it take to educate the Gen Z student demographic?

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist"

Want to innovate? Become a "now-ist" | Theories and Innovative Ideas in Education and Teaching | Scoop.it
“Remember before the internet?” asks Joi Ito. “Remember when people used to try to predict the future?” In this engaging talk, the head of the MIT Media Lab skips the future predictions and instead shares a new approach to creating in the moment: building quickly and improving constantly, without waiting for permission or for proof that you have the right idea. This kind of bottom-up innovation is seen in the most fascinating, futuristic projects emerging today, and it starts, he says, with being open and alert to what’s going on around you right now. Don’t be a futurist, he suggests: be a now-ist.
Kaitlyn Kaminski's insight:

Some great quotes from this talk:

 "Education is what people do to you. Learning is what you do to yourself."

"What you need to learn, is how to learn."

"Even though the world is extremely complex, what you need to do is very simple: It's about stopping this notion you need to plan everything, you need to stock everything, you need to be so prepared. And focus on being connected, always learning, fully aware, and super present. So I don't like the word 'future-ist', I like 'now-ist'."

Engagement Landscape

Engagement Landscape | Theories and Innovative Ideas in Education and Teaching | Scoop.it
A survey from the Education Week Research Center offers important insights about the levels of engagement and dedication teachers and school-based administrators see among their students.
Kaitlyn Kaminski's insight:

This data infographic shows the results of a study about motivation and engagement in classrooms. The results are astounding, but when you think about it, not very surprising. Many students feel that school is useless and aren't excited about attending. It could perhaps be because of older teachers not changing their traditional techniques (i.e. lecture style; copy multiple board notes; etc), or the teachers are resisting the digital age we live in. Whatever the case, these numbers should be OUR motivation for a change, as educators. We should move forward with motivating and engaging lessons; getting our students excited about learning should make us feel like we've served our purpose.

Studies Confirm the Power of Visuals in eLearning

We are now in the age of visual information where visual content plays a role in every part of life. As 65 percent of the population are visual learn
Kaitlyn Kaminski's insight:

Definitely something I'll be using more in my teaching. Visual learning is something that is very close to my person: I am a visual learner. I need text, images help reinforce the text and make it more memorable. Often, we see students unengaged without blips and explosions of something on a screen - change your method around and add visuals. I started drawing "wonderful" stick figures on the white board at my school. The interesting thing about it was - when I got my student to comment on my teaching - the thing that stuck out in his mind were the stick figures: they made my lessons memorable. I challenge educators to create a lesson that incorporates mainly visuals as means of instruction. That's another thing, some educators don't challenge themselves anymore - we should change that. Think outside the box.

The Future of Learning

The Future of Learning | Theories and Innovative Ideas in Education and Teaching | Scoop.it
Edutopia blogger Beth Holland recalls the robot teacher from the Jetsons and updates that 1960s cartoon view of education's future to include customized learning, embedded technology, ongoing feedback - and human teachers.
Kaitlyn Kaminski's insight:

I remember the show The Jetsons... It's interesting to think that they had a lecture-based style of teaching. We do have to look forward in how we teach: the future is where our students need to be. Educators need to be on the most cutting-edge, up-to-date, modern style of pedagogy in order to keep up. Sounds exhausting, but we do. The space a student inhabits for the day might not be the most conducive for their mood/emotions/intellect that very day; having the means to be flexible in the environment will help every student feel comfortable and more focused. I enjoy the comment in this article that technology should be invisible: that's the truth. Technology shouldn't be something that students see as "special" or limited or restricted. They should be thinking the best way to solve the task at hand (using problem solving skills) which may or may not involve technology. Similarly, educators shouldn't struggle involving technology use, however, they should see it as a support to their lesson to help it flourish and allow students more creativity with their assignments. One of the most interesting quotes from this is, "Imagine if teachers ran individualized diagnostics each morning to assess changes in learning, comprehension, and even emotional well-being." I love the sound of that. We need this in teaching. Now to start on a path toward the pedagogy of the future....
