Teachers need to be able to find the right resources for their lessons – and make sure they’re high quality, aligned to standards and compatible with existing tools. Without these skills, teachers struggle to integrate technology and digital content with their own teaching methods.

Supporting Professional Self-Development at Work

Supporting Professional Self-Development at Work | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

Providing individuals with the opportunity to take charge of their professional self-development in the workplace is not just one way to build a continuous learning mindset, but it also gives employees choice, flexibility and ownership of their learning. It also offers a balance between achieving professional and organizational goals, and provides a motivation for the individual that is not often present in many organized learning initiatives, since they have significant control over what they actual do to achieve their goals.

What is Instructional Design? Our guide to everything you need to know | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

Instructional design is the art of creating engaging training experiences. It helps make information more digestible and improves the efficiency of learning. Instructional design is the difference between delivering training experiences and hoping your audience will extract the relevant learning from it, and guiding your learners through your content in a clear structure such that they can’t help but glean the information you want them too.

Next Education: Improving learning outcome digitally

Next Education: Improving learning outcome digitally | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

Lack of skilled teachers and quality content and poor ways of tracking learning outcomes are some of the issues plaguing the Indian education system. For instance, teachers are expected to use digital aids in the classroom without even receiving adequate training. Any inadequacies from the teachers’ end are often criticised without taking into consideration the lack of teacher-training programmes. Devising quality teacher-training programmes is the need of the hour. Teachers, even those who are remotely based, can take up various Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) offered by various reputed institutes to upskill themselves and keep themselves abreast of the latest pedagogies. In an effort to train teachers with the best global teaching practices, Next Education, in collaboration with Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT-B) offers a couple of MOOCs. To address the problem, the government could also mull over setting up of public–private partnerships to design effective teacher-training programmes.

20 interactive teaching activities for the classroom - BookWidgets

20 interactive teaching activities for the classroom - BookWidgets | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

"Interactive teaching is all about instructing the students in a way they are actively involved with their own learning process. There are different ways to create an involvement like this. Most of the time it’s through:

*teacher-student interaction
*student-student interaction
*the use of audio, visuals, video
*hands-on demonstrations and exercises


"You encourage your students to be active members of your class, thinking on their own, using their own brains, resulting in long-term memory retention. Not only the students' knowledge will improve, but their interest, strength, knowledge, team spirit and freedom of expression will increase as well.

"In this blog post, I wall talk about the use of interactive methods for teaching, encouraging more dedication towards the lesson material. We will see some interactive teaching tools, interactive teaching ideas and interactive teaching games."

Free Technology for Teachers: Educational Games for Elementary School Science Lessons

Free Technology for Teachers: Educational Games for Elementary School Science Lessons | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it
Educational games can be useful in helping to reinforce concepts and content. A good game can keep students engaged while also helping them develop some thinking skills at the same time. You could create your own games on platforms like Kahoot or Metaverse, but those might not provide the depth of context that professionally developed games provide. If you're an elementary school teacher looking for some games to use in science lessons, take a look at the following five games that I frequently share with other teachers.

After all, modern technology offers plenty of benefits for writers.... Convenience, however, doesn’t trump old-fashioned writing by hand when it comes to learning.

These are followed by language focus tasks and some more creative tasks. Finally, there are some suggestions for digital creation and research follow-up tasks.

Ask the difficult questions

Ask the difficult questions | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

The future of work will be humans augmented by machines, and those with the best processes will succeed. In How to Become a Centaur, Nicky Case outlines what machines (AI) are good for and what people are best at.

“So, how do you find the best “+” for humans and AI? How do you combine humans’ and AI’s individual strengths, to overcome their individual weaknesses? Well, to do that, we first need to know exactly what humans’ and AI’s strengths and weaknesses are.

Human nature, for better or worse, doesn’t change much from millennia to millennia. If you want to see the strengths that are unique and universal to all humans, don’t look at the world-famous award-winners — look at children. Children, even at a young age, are already proficient at: intuition, analogy, creativity, empathy, social skills. Some may scoff at these for being ‘soft skills’, but the fact that we can make an AI that plays chess but not hold a normal five-minute conversation, is proof that these skills only seem ‘soft’ to us because evolution’s already put in the 3.5 billion years of hard work for us”.

6 Best 3D Sculpting Software Tools (4 are Free)

6 Best 3D Sculpting Software Tools (4 are Free) | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

"There are many tools out there for making 3D models. One subcategory of such tools is 3D sculpting software, which is specialized for creating models by manipulating objects as if they are made of clay. This style of modeling — used to create sculptures, busts, animals, and fantasy characters, among other designs — has the ability to create more freeform shapes compared to parametric modeling — used to create bridges, mechanical assemblies, or buildings.

In a modern sense, the term “3D sculpting tool” typically implies additional tools for painting, texturing, and rendering the sculpted model. You’ll find that many of these extras come bundled together because they can be as important as the modeling itself.

Sculpting software is used across multiple industries, such as game design, character animation, film, engineering, and product design. In the following we list some of the most popular paid and free 3D sculpting software."

Does VR hold the key to the Future of Education?

Does VR hold the key to the Future of Education? | Assessment | Learning and Teaching | Coaching | Scoop.it

Twenty years ago, computers in schools were a novelty, not a necessity. By 2014, however, one-third of students in the United States were issued mobile devices by their schools. Some might not agree with children getting access to iPads, but like it or not, technology has already radically reshaped education from preschool all the way up to the graduate level. But of course, there’s still more to come. Could Virtual reality (VR) be the next step?

VR has been used for everything from gaming to PTSD treatment, but we’ve only just begun to scratch the surface in terms of what we can do with the technology. Education is an area that could benefit immensely from VR in several different ways. But how could VR change the future of education? Here’s how it could be used to help people of all ages learn.
