               1. There are many uses for an ipad in the classroom. The ipad can help both the student and teacher. The students learn more,  can do more, and work together and get more than just there ideas out.  Students learn more from viewing more detailed presentations, they can see different parts of the world while just sitting at there desk, learn about whats happening in the world at that exact moment, practice problems and record notes. They can do more because with the ipads they can create more complex documents and presentations also they can have blogs and voice there own opinions to a broader audience.  Students get to work together with other people by using live broadcasts or making there own websites also they can use websites such as google docs to work with other students without actually being with them. If the ipads are used right they can be extremely helpful but teachers still need to watch and make sure the student stays on track when using the electronic device.

Considering how integrated technology has become in even basic courses, it seems pointless to resist lest one become outdated and useless as a teacher.

The Key Differences Between Summative And Formative Assessments | Edudemic

The Key Differences Between Summative And Formative Assessments | Edudemic | Education Resources | Scoop.it

Assessments are a part of every classroom, regardless of subject matter or grade level. Theycome in all shapes and sizes, and they can be used for a number of reasons.

 

Sometimes, the differences between the types of assessments can be subtle. Many teachers will find that some subjects lend themselves really well to certain types of question formats (like multiple choice vs. short answer vs. essay), but the style of question shouldn’t be confused with the type of assessment.

 

While there are many more, summative and formative assessments are probably two of the most widely used in education today. The handy infographic below takes a look at the main concepts of each type of assessment along with examples of each.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 3, 2014 1:48 PM

We do not build leaders. Having said that, teachers are leaders by the very vocation of teaching. Pedagogy is leading. Education is a forming, nurturing, and leading  process for students and teachers. The problem might be we manage too many things and leading is about letting go and opening up.

jewell Moss's curator insight, March 3, 2014 6:29 PM

There are simple ways to be a leader, do you have the qualities? Any one can lead, and any one can teach with the right qualities.

Bailey Rufer's curator insight, April 10, 2014 2:19 PM

Being a leader in the classroom is fairly important, especially when leading kids towards their future. Being a teacher leader is very important because you're the person that gives students the tools to a bright future. You are the person that is able to bend and form a student into a "bright star", and teachers that lead are always there for children to look up to.

(BE SURE TO WATCH THE VIDEO AT THE END OF THIS ARTICLE)

 

It is important to remember that excellent teaching is both a science AND art. Though this list almost appears to be either a simple list of the obvious or a list of opinions that are not universally agreed upon, it points to the value of remembering the art of "getting it done EFFECTIVELY."

 

If we can admit that the current mode of outcome-based assessment assumes that the Science-side of teaching is at the center of data-driven decision making, we can see the benefits of attempting to use precision analysis techniques to inform our practice. 

 

The question I'd still pose is that as the data-collection's margin of error is reduced and the analysis techniques become increasingly precise, what questions and responses are in order as a response to the less desired outcome results we use to inform our practice?

 

Do we redouble our "teach to the test" strategies? More review? More of what wasn't working for those students whose data-sets were disappointing? Or might we benefit from questioning the effectiveness of "the way we taught" the material? 

 

Unlike the production line in manufacturing where the quality outcome of the paint job on a new car, for example, is a result of controlling the variables associated with getting the paint job outcome to be excellent and that those variables are precisely consistent as the unpainted cars travel through the process of becoming paint jobs, we can not sufficiently control the infinite variables in the educational production line and thereby ensure that a single data-driven learning experience that works for many will work for all.  

 

We've recognized for years that there are some obvious areas where the variables can be disaggregated. Special needs students, ESL students, rich and poor students, culturally diverse students, male and female students,  students of any of these "disaggreated" groups whose parents have very different expectations and methods of dealing with their children who meet or fail to meet those expectations And, yet in a sense these are rather crude determinations that we all recognize as being inadequate and therefore unreliably precise.  

 

The truth is that the variables in every single student are too many to identify much less to control. And many, if not most of those unidentified variables are not collected in our current data-collection structures. This is not to say that our current data-collection structures are in such a static state that their existing levels of reliability are worthless. They are in truth more and more valuable as they evolve. What is perhaps also worthy of contemplation is the existing levels of reliability in the design of our learning experiences particularly if we've been recycling favorite lessons that we've relied upon without revisiting the possibility that those lesson designs have passed their peak given new understandings of effective teaching and learning. 

 

So where does the art come in?  As we all refine our understanding of the science-side of teaching and learning, we must then revisit the creative ways that we respond to the increasingly precise data we collect. Do old responses serve the new results?

 

This article's short list response to how to engage previously unengaged students ends with an exquisitely science-based video that gives many creative examples of effective changes we might all consider in revisiting what might be obsoleting practice. And, it is the creative revisions that we might bring to our practice that make the difference between our solidifying our current levels of success with those students whose "invisible" variables are a large part of the reasons why their current performance rates have much room for improvement and our effectively broadening the effectiveness of acheivement among our students.

10 Mind Mapping Strategies For Teachers

10 Mind Mapping Strategies For Teachers | Education Resources | Scoop.it

The adoption of Mind Maps in teaching has grown recently due to the benefits of using Mind Maps to learn and the availability of free online mind mapping software.

 

Teachers have recognized the value of using Mind Maps to engage students, encourage creativity and, most importantly, teaching how to learn rather simply memorizing content.

 

Mind Maps have even been integrated into emerging teaching techniques such as the Flipped Classroom and Design Thinking as outlined in the Mind Map on the right.

How do teachers harness the full power of Mind Mapping?

 

Below is some ideas on how teachers and student can use Mind Maps both in and out of the classroom.
