I constantly see video "gurus" telling people to just insert all your script text into PowerPoint slides, read it aloud while recording, and...BAM!...instant video!

 

I've always contended that this is a questionable strategy at best for delivering a visual message. Here is one of the leading presentation experts on the planet explaining part of my contention.

A Taxonomy of Reflection: A Model for Critical Thinking

A Taxonomy of Reflection: A Model for Critical Thinking | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've led many teachers and administrators on classroom walkthroughs designed to foster a collegial conversation about teaching and learning. The walkthroughs served as roving Socratic seminars and a catalyst for reflection. But reflection can be a challenging endeavor. It's not something that's fostered in school - typically someone else tells you how you're doing!

Why Do Public Schools Have a Teacher Shortage?

Why Do Public Schools Have a Teacher Shortage? | Transformational Teaching and Technology | Scoop.it
  Answer by Judy Levy Pordes, retired teacher, school leader for 40 years:   Teaching is not a particularly well-respected position. Many people do not want to be a part of a profession that is often looked down upon. Too many of today's politicians and corporate leaders talk about the poor...
Chris Carter's insight:

"So why is there a teacher shortage? No money, no respect, inappropriate evaluations and expectations, and the availability of many more options now for women."


Agree?

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's curator insight, August 27, 6:07 AM

The press had been battering teachers for all of last year. The testing proponents blamed teachers for the ills of society. People resented the pensions and some teachers were scandalized trying to meet the testing goals by cheating. Surprised? No one should be. There has bee an attack on the teaching profession.

We all want to be healthier and a huge number of people make health related new year’s resolutions each year but we don’t always reach our goals.  The Misfit is a new fitness tracker that allows you to keep track of your steps and sleep and helps to show you if you are making progress in your goals.  It gives you graphs to show how your sleep and steps are progressing during the week and  integrates with other fitness apps like myfitnesspal to help give you data about your eating and overall health.  If you’ve heard of the jawbone or fitbit this is basically the same idea except that this one doesn’t break after a few months.  The other benefit of the misfit uses LED lights to show you your progress so the battery inside will last for a couple years before you need to change it.  It is fully waterproof and comes with a few methods of attaching (clip for your clothing, band for your wrist) and you can purchase more (a leather band, necklace, etc.) If you want a simple fitness tracker to help motivate you towards better health, this is a good choice.

One of the most common complaints I hear from teachers, administrators, and staff working in public schools is something along the lines of, "I don't feel appreciated."

Det er vigtigt at være sig selv bevidst om hvordan vi opfatter elevernes indsat for at blive bedre til noget, og ligeledes hvad det er vi rose og værdsætter. Er det indsatsen eller målet for indsatsen.

"Hvor var det flot det du gjorde" eller "hvor har du gjort en stor indsat for når der til"
