Allan Shaw's curator insight, August 4, 11:20 PM

These are some of the issues we are grappling with or some of us are realising that we need to grapple with at school. In a real school situation school leaders and classroom teachers also have to acknowledge and professionally balance parental expectations and society's views on what constitutes schooling along with the state mandated demands of curriculum and outcomes, with what we, as professionals, see as what students increasingly need as their future unfolds.

The beauty of unfinished work (mindsets)

The beauty of unfinished work (mindsets) | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
There is a danger in seeking finished perfection in all that we do. There
is a risk that our students will focus solely on the attributes that define
a finished piece and overlook the importance of the process that leads to
it. With a shift in our mindset we might be able to celebrate this process
and encourage our students to value the learning that occurs along the way.

Is learning computer science linked to improved learning in other subjects? | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

Many passionate computer science educators believe computational thinking, problem solving, persistence and analysis learned in computer science helps students do better in other courses, especially math.

 

There’s a clear correlation

According to College Board data, students who take the AP Computer Science exam earn higher AP Calculus and Statistics scores relative to peers who previously performed at a similar level in math.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”
