Brad Merrick's curator insight, November 2, 2016 4:50 PM
Being able to listen with focus and empathy is key, whereby those in our care feel supported and heard. In a world where everyone is so busy and time often seems to be the commodity that we have the least of, this diagram really serves to remind us that we need to listen constructively, suggest skilfully and try to understand the emotion of those we are engaging with in all that we do. Purposeful listening rather than just hearing is key.

Highly trained, respected and free: why Finland's teachers are different

Highly trained, respected and free: why Finland's teachers are different | English as ESL | Scoop.it
Welcome to a country where teaching is a highly prized profession. Finland’s teachers have kept the nation near the top of the influential Pisa performance rankings since they were first published in 2001, leading to an influx of educational tourists as other teachers have endeavoured to learn from the Finnish experience.


The high-level training is the basis for giving young teachers a great deal of autonomy to choose what methods they use in the classroom – in contrast to England, Krokfors says, where she feels teaching is “somewhere between administration and giving tests to students”. In Finland, teachers are largely free from external requirements such as inspection, standardised testing and government control; school inspections were scrapped in the 1990s.


“Teachers need to have this high-quality education so they really do know how to use the freedom they are given, and learn to solve problems in a research-based way,” Krokfors says. “The most important thing we teach them is to take pedagogical decisions and judgments for themselves.”

Telling Stories: The Art and Science of Storytelling as an Instructional Strategy | English as ESL | Scoop.it
This book explores the many pedagogical uses of Story in psychology instruction. Rich with teaching tips, examples, resources, and outcome data, the collected chapters serve as both a reference for developing creative uses of Story in the (real or virtual) classroom and as an example of evidence-based scholarship in the field.  The volume is organized into sections focusing on the theoretical underpinnings of Story, the autobiographical use of Story, application of Story in different course contexts, and interdisciplinary perspectives on the pedagogical use of Story.

This New App From Duolingo Aims To Make Flash Cards Obsolete

This New App From Duolingo Aims To Make Flash Cards Obsolete | English as ESL | Scoop.it


"While students have been using flash cards to memorize facts and vocabulary at least since the Victorian era, it's no secret that the study tools can be deathly dull.

Hoping to change that is Duolingo, the Pittsburgh-based company behind the popular language learning app of the same name. On Tuesday, the company released TinyCards, a game-like, modern version of flash cards that automatically tracks what users already have learned and even lets users level up, video game-style, as they progress in their knowledge."
