George Couros provided insight on the 8 things we need to look for in today's classrooms. Sylvia Duckworth recently created this graphic that represents George's blog post from Jan. 2013. These 8 things are elements that you would discover in a personalized learning environment where the learners become self-directed and self-motivated. Thank you George for providing a narrative about these 8 things to share with the education world.

Preschool lessons: New research shows that teaching kids more and more, at ever-younger ages, may backfire. | Time2Wonder | Scoop.it
Ours is an age of pedagogy. Anxious parents instruct their children more and more, at younger and younger ages, until they're reading books to babies in the womb. They pressure teachers to make kindergartens and nurseries more like schools. So does the law—the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act explicitly...

I think I have pizza on my mind since this is the second post in as many days related to pizza.  This is a clever way to introduce oneself to a class or to have a partners introduce each other.  I am thinking it wouldn't have to be pizza, but one's favorite dish where certain ingredients represent something about one's life.

The future need innovators and the present needs innovative teachers to nurture them.   Creativity and the ability to innovate are natural characteristics but they must be built up and encouraged in our students, colleagues, and selves.


IteratED is committed to bringing out and nurturing the best in all of our faculty and students. We understand that this requires greater autonomy to make decisions and more trust in the natural ability to learn through exploration.


Are you a teacher who wants to reach for your highest potential? We are here to help you get there. Contact IteratED for more information on how together we can provide exceptional 21st-century education.

Roy Sheneman, PhD's curator insight, March 26, 2015 9:03 AM

Tony Palmeri's curator insight, October 24, 2015 12:40 PM

"...Human ingenuity within any organization is it's greatest competitive advantage". This quote alone made me scoop this resource. How do we tap into the resource that is our staff? Engaging with them in the classroom and in the hallways to build communication capacity is important. Inspiring staff to take risks is a tricky enterprise - leaders must value this sort of behavior. This means that attempts which result in failure must be cherished, not scrutinized as they often tend to be.

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process

It’s a Mistake Not to Use Mistakes as Part of the Learning Process | Time2Wonder | Scoop.it
I recently heard a TED talk from Brian Goldman, a doctor who admits to having made mistakes. In very emotional language, he describes some costly emergency room mistakes, and then makes a strong case for changing the way that the medical profession addresses such things. He believes that medicine will improve if doctors are free to discuss their mistakes, without judgment, allowing them to learn from each other. But, he continued, because doctors are judged by mistakes, they are too afraid to di
