Teaching and Professional Development
Many of today’s classrooms are designed and practiced as teaching classrooms, where the actions and learning are focused on and driven by the teacher. Teaching classrooms however, do not match the needs and expectations for 21st Century learning. To be successful in the 21st Century students need to be engaged in learning classrooms, where the actions and learning are focused on student outcomes and classroom practices that strengthen and deepen not only students’ content knowledge but their overall ability to think deeply, communicate, analyze, problem solve, and take responsibility for their learning. - <a href="http://www.TeachnKidsLearn.com" rel="nofollow">www.TeachnKidsLearn.com</a>

Learning Gaps In Schools Can't Be Ended By Schools

Learning Gaps In Schools Can't Be Ended By Schools | Teaching and Professional Development | Scoop.it
Schools need our help. Schools need us as a society and as families to help every child to be learning ready, so schools can do their job of teaching rather than doing remedial work for students who are not as ready to learn as they might be when they enter schools.

A More Holistic Approach To Technology Planning

When I was a Director of Instructional Technology I was deeply involved in the technology planning process from one end to the other. Regularly I had to sit through presentations of new products, listening with a skeptical ear while instructional promises were made. I'd also council administrators who felt that the next flashy thing they saw walk through their door, their school had to have. And often I would evaluate our programs and purchases to ensure we were headed on the desired course or if we needed to make a U-turn.

A number of conditions support a metacognitive classroom environment. Learning environments that are knowledge-centered and learner-centered, and that take into account the role of assessment in learning, lay the foundation for a reflective classroom. “Knowledge-centered” classrooms focus on meaningful, powerful, nontrivial activities. When students are asked to engage in activities that build on their previous …
Teach n' Kids Learn's insight:

As teachers, we need to think about how to help students become thoughtful learners in our classrooms. We need to put practices in our classroom which will provide at first the guidance on how, followed by the activities and tasks to practice these skills.

Why Teachers Need A Career Development Plan

Why Teachers Need A Career Development Plan | Teaching and Professional Development | Scoop.it
Teach n' Kids Learn's insight:

Teachers prepare for our careers through a four year college or university program of study that includes periods of active classroom participation as student teachers. After graduation and certification, we are employed as classroom teachers. When we begin teaching, however, we become increasingly aware of how much we still have to learn in order to be the best possible teachers for our students and their learning needs.

After years of cuts, school districts face teacher shortages

 

When a new school year began at the Sierra Sands Unified District 150 miles north of Los Angeles in August, students in four classes were greeted by a substitute.

The small district's human resources department had worked aggressively through the summer to attract new teachers. Staff members made out-of-state recruiting trips, highlighting their area's low cost of living and proximity to Los Angeles. The district revamped its website and asked residents to tap their families and friends for job candidates.

"We were leaving no stone unturned," said Dave Ostash, assistant superintendent of human resources of the 5,000-student district.

Class Story (an Instagram for Parents) Helps Strengthen The Home-School Connection | Teaching and Professional Development | Scoop.it

Building relationships with families is hard work. Especially with today’s busy parents. If you’re lucky, you’ll see your student’s parents on one or two parent-teacher conferences or events each year. That hardly makes for relationship building.

 

Parents want to be involved and teachers want to involve them, but many parents are not afforded the luxury of free time that makes this possible. Teachers want to involve parents, but they often don’t have time to put together quality websites or newsletters.
