Arizona State University, Claire McLaughlin's curator insight, April 1, 11:01 PM

Taboo is a fun game to play with groups of people, and it's a great vocabulary game for EFL/ESL learners.  Students quickly realize they know more vocabulary than they think.  It can be a great way to liven up a tired class and a fun way to review or introduce material.

Instructor-Facilitated Online Learning: How to Maximize Your Virtual Student Engagement | Tips for teacher development | Scoop.it
Guest post by Academy of Learning College Instructors that have taught online, have at one time or another felt limited, because they do not have eye contact with their students. They cannot tell if they are awake or paying attention. There are times they ask questions or request feedback but they get no response in return.

Professional Development: a recipe | Canadian Education Association (CEA)

Professional Development: a recipe | Canadian Education Association (CEA) | Tips for teacher development | Scoop.it

“ The gift of time: Often underrated and underestimated Educators know there is much to investigate, debate, and expand on in our profession. Inevitably you will hear, “there doesn’t seem to be enough time”…but time, we seem to find. Just go on Twitter and peruse for awhile, you will find dedicated educators taking risks, asking questions and issuing provocations to one another. We somehow find the time because we know our professional development (PD) is essential to the contribution we can make as teachers to student growth and innovative practices. Contrary to some current thinking out there, educators (and their practice) are always evolving, as is the curriculum that guides us. So given the gift of time, how do we use it most effectively or more so, in the most sustainable way? ”

I worked in a Canadian School jurisdiction and the last years I was there it was a challenge to get involved in meaningful professional learning. For the last 8 years, it was being professionally developed by fiat.
