Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development - Edudemic

Why Teachers Need Personalized Professional Development - Edudemic | To Read and Share | Scoop.it
As we’ve studied the educational process, it’s become clear that students learn in a variety of ways and that no single approach is always successful in a classroom. What makes complete sense to one student may sound like gibberish to another. Competency-based or “personalized” learning allows students to master skills at their own pace with …

CLASSROOM CLIMATE PLAN

"What are you doing in your classroom now that you could turn over to your students to do?"

Many teachers do a lot of daily tasks on the classroom that could really be given to students to do.  Assigning daily tasks to students helps create a strong sense of community in the classroom SUPPORTING WHOLE CHILD THINKING AND RESILIENCE.  WHEN everyone has a role in the classroom community STUDENTS ARE ENGAGED, CREATIVE, COMMUNICATE IDEAS, AND ARE SUPPORTED.  Establishing these daily roles also help free up time for the teacher to give more attention to her students daily needs.  I remember in elementary school having different responsibilities in the classroom, such as passing out papers, filing, cleaning up.... and I think it also helped me with learning about responsibilities, both on an individual and group level.  I ALSO THINK THAT STUDENTS WILL BEGIN TO SEE ALL OF THE WORK THAT A TEACHER DOES ASIDE FROM TEACHING THE CLASS AND WILL THEN BE ABLE TO RECOGNIZE AND HOPEFULLY APPRECIATE ANOTHER PERSPECTIVE  OF THE CLASSROOM.

Beyond the Maker Space | Backtalk

Beyond the Maker Space | Backtalk | To Read and Share | Scoop.it
How often do librarians find themselves trying to explain that the library’s mission is not about books but about information? This public mis­understanding about what we are doing and why leads to a community misconception of what we should be doing in the future. The reality is that we as librarians make the same mistake all the time. We know intellectually that informational flow and access are our main missions, but our decisions and our hearts often put the focus on books. Books, in many cases, remain by far the best delivery vehicle for information, but there are many subject areas where other informational vehicles would be more effective, even if implementing those vehicles might mean less money spent on books.
