Why Professional Development For Physical Educators Is Critical - Edudemic

Why Professional Development For Physical Educators Is Critical - Edudemic | Tips for Teaching Online | Scoop.it
Sometimes I think there is so much focus on Math, Science, Reading, and Writing that I wonder if we sometimes forget about the other subjects. Especially in the US, where there is so much testing focused in these areas, the other stuff often feels like ‘extra’. Along the same lines, much of the professional development …

Steve Vaitl's insight:

With all the research supporting active care for injuries, exercise to combat obesity and an active lifestyle for our senior citizens, this only makes perfect sense. Especially a society so heavily based in the use of sedentary electronics such as personal computers, tablets and video gaming systems.

Some of this may not be under the control of a typical user of a Windows computer.

The Problem with the Flipped Classroom Movement

The Problem with the Flipped Classroom Movement | Tips for Teaching Online | Scoop.it

"The flipped classroom is just that, a classroom with the times attributed to certain tasks that are flipped. It is not student centered, but just a rehash of sage-on-the-stage direct instruction. The problem with the flipped classroom or student centered learning is that the students dictate the pace. In addition a great deal of learning takes place in group settings with dialog. We do not live in a schedule free world. Most schools have an Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate curriculum. Both of which have time constraints due to testing. In addition, many schools use SAT testing for college entrance, and classes have to end with a certain amount of learning that needs to take place. Students have a timeline. Allowing students to learn at their own pace could lead to a lot of problems."


Via EDTC@UTB
Steve Vaitl's insight:

For my teaching friends out there;

I must agree this is a problem as the classroom becomes a place of "easier and easier learning" the work place becomes a place of "continuously more difficult working demands". If we tie together the flipped classroom with a schedule of the time in the classroom it may be a way to address this valid issue.

Is this an argument for test driven learning?

iPamba's curator insight, February 19, 4:22 PM

It's neither the delivery model nor the tools that enable learning. It's the experience.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 20, 1:24 PM

Mark Page-Botello makes a good point about the need for student motivation. I think teachers have to be as active, but in different and, perhaps new ways. I think of Whitehead's phrase about learning being about the character of the pupils and the genius of the teacher.
