Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator | outdoor education | Scoop.it
The educator becomes a connected educator and through sharing, is an active participant and contributor to the connected educator movement.

Being a connected educator means connecting with other teachers to exchange ideas, improve your teaching practice, and in turn, make a change in education. It is only through being connected that we can collaborate and help to foster learning for the 21st century and beyond. (Being a Connected Educator)

The gap between what is and what could be in education is larger than it ever has  been.  I believe this is largely due to technology and the ability to establish global connections because of social media. Educators are more connected and more aware about education trends than any time in the history of public education.

Imagine how education could be transformed if all educators use their own personal, often passion-driven voices. The bottom line is that if any individual educator believes there are flaws in the education, that it can be done better, then s/he has the responsibility to say something. I reaching the point that I am starting to believe it is a moral imperative for educators to share what they know to be true with other educators; and with administrators, students’ families, community members, politicians . . . the larger global society.

Arctic Adventure: A 1,500-Mile Trip by Sea Kayak

Arctic Adventure: A 1,500-Mile Trip by Sea Kayak | outdoor education | Scoop.it

Erik Boomer and Jon Turk circumnavigated Canada’s Ellesmere Island in 104 days, becoming the first to do so.

http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2012/01/17/sports/17kayak_SS_337.html

[excerpt]

To stave off a breaching 3,000-pound walrus from the cockpit of a small sea kayak, Erik Boomer recommends using the paddle.

“Sort of like a Heisman stiff-arm, hit him in the face and try to feed him the paddle,” he said. “Then start paddling.”

The first 600 miles of the Ellesmere Island expedition had not been so sporting — lots of marching along on skis with skins, towing the boats.

“Kind of a goofy sea kayak trip, because we haven’t been sea kayaking yet,” Jon Turk said via satellite phone 38 days into the journey. He added, “At every moment, we expect the possibility that we’re going to run into big trouble.”

Opposite Greenland along the ice-choked Nares Strait, Ellesmere (population 146) is the northernmost isle of the Canadian Arctic Archipelago and the most mountainous island in the Arctic Circle. “It’s stacked with fatty mountains,” Boomer said. Ellesmere, the world’s 10th largest island, is also something of a jewel of Arctic exploration, its rugged and icebound 1,500-mile perimeter rarely traveled before.

Unlikely partners, Boomer, a 26-year-old photographer and rising figure in whitewater kayaking, and Turk, 65, an author, scientist and veteran of far-flung adventures, were attempting to complete what is believed to be the first circumnavigation of the island.

[...][I wonder if they checked with any Inuit?]

10 Ways to Teach Innovation

10 Ways to Teach Innovation | outdoor education | Scoop.it

One overriding challenge is now coming to the fore in public consciousness: We need to reinvent just about everything. Whether scientific advances, technology breakthroughs, new political and economic structures, environmental solutions, or an updated code of ethics for 21st century life, everything is in flux—and everything demands innovative, out of the box thinking.

The Challenges and Realities of Inquiry-Based Learning | Mind/Shift | outdoor education | Scoop.it
As education continues the march toward a student-driven, project-oriented approach that values intelligent solutions to open-ended problems, it won’t be sufficient to focus on the wonderful discoveries and authentic work that result from an inquiry-based system. Instead, a far more difficult issue will come to the fore: How will we know if inquiry-based learning is successful, and what non-standardized measures of achievement, like better attitude, apply?

Socrative is an app where students respond using different divices within their classroom with a series of educational exercises and games. Socrative works on tablets, smartphones, and laptops. Teachers control the learning experience by logging in through their devices and selecting an activity which controls the flow of questions and games. Students login and respond to the activities which could include multiple choice, true/false and short answer response questions (Socrative, 2013).
