Research: Preschool Teachers Are Uncomfortable with Science, Teach It Rarely -- THE Journal

Research: Preschool Teachers Are Uncomfortable with Science, Teach It Rarely -- THE Journal | Bookmarks for slmb | Scoop.it
Preschool teachers in the United States are not as comfortable with science as they are literacy, according to researchers at Michigan State University.
Sue Meabon Bartow's insight:
Developmental psychology research also points the gap between those young ones who get to talk about science things or number things and those who don't. It's another version of the word gap that has long lasting impact.

Three Trends that Will Influence Learning and Teaching in 2016 | Bookmarks for slmb | Scoop.it
What will 2016 hold for education? There’s no shortage of articles and reports with predictions describing what to expect for the coming year.

Teachers often ask youngsters to learn in ways that exceed even adult-sized attention spans - The Hechinger Report | Bookmarks for slmb | Scoop.it
Distracted students are the bane of teachers. In surveys, teachers complain about students walking around the classroom, talking with peers, staring at the walls and fidgeting with their clothes — anything but paying attention to the lesson or the task at hand. Teachers are crying out for help to keep kids on task, but student …

Assessing the dark matter of learning

Assessing the dark matter of learning | Bookmarks for slmb | Scoop.it
A figure skater in competition falls on the ice while attempting a triple jump that she has successfully performed hundreds of times in practice. Similarly, an all-star basketball player who typically makes 90% of free throws misses several of them in the last few seconds of a close game. When we watch these athletes, however, we never question their physical skills. We know there is an unseen variable in the situation that triggers something inside their mental/emotional state that affects their performance.

Analytics expand school CIO role | Bookmarks for slmb | Scoop.it
Just a few years ago, CIOs—if they were involved in data analytics at all—would run a report, export it into an Excel document and share it with teachers and district leaders once a week or at the end of each semester. Now it’s all about creating systems that aggregate and sort data automatically, making it easier for educators to view crucial information every day

Worried about this. This level of data collection and analysis represents a whole new arena of expertise and a whole new encroachment to critique, a new responsibility for teachers. I have a lot of concerns about this level of measurement of teaching and learning.
