In the midst of a growing storm of new technology-induced learning concepts such as flipped learning, blended learning, personalized learning (to mention but a few) , teachers are left with no other alternatives but to enhance and accommodate their professional development efforts to suit the changing educational paradigms. Edsurge called this "personalized professional development".

Great evidence to why we need the internet and most our other communications systems under the control of citizens and consumers and need to educate our society to be media and visually literate. Brain washing can be good if it is a habit you are aware of needing to  choose and desire a behavior change in your life to improve your life like health, fitness, better attitudes and so on….But most of these types of media messages do not have the goal of wise reflective choice for a positive behavior change. They have profits or manipulation in mind too often,…… Alex Jones by the way is a master at this as well.

Bovee & Thill's Online Business Communication Magazines's curator insight, June 19, 2014 5:47 PM

How well your students use words can make a lasting impression on people. Wield those words skillfully and people may perceive you in any number of positive lights — as intelligent, poised, persuasive, funny, to name a few. But even one little grammatical slip can have the opposite effect.

Nicholas C. Rossis's curator insight, August 29, 2014 1:07 AM

I like reading about grammar mistakes; I will check which ones I make (hopefully very few) and then congratulate myself on not making the other mistakes.  In this article, the 'me, I, myself' part is well-explained and useful, and the rest of the common mistakes is really good as well!

I love quotes. From these tiniest little gems, I believe you can glean much about the person and their view of the world.

 

If you're a reader, writer, or both you should enjoy these quotes from well-known authors.

10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment

10 Characteristics Of A Highly Effective Learning Environment | Read-Write-Learn | Scoop.it

"Wherever we are, we’d all like to think our classrooms are “intellectually active” places. Progressive learning (like our 21st Century Model, for example) environments. Highly effective and conducive to student-centered learning. But what does that mean?

The reality is, there is no single answer because teaching and learning are awkward to consider as single events or individual 'things'..."

These criteria really outline some solid  principles that should direct our planning and thus be evident in our learning environments. Principles such as: student enquiry, work readiness, personalised learning, flexibility, authentic and transparent assessment. I like the focus on critical thinking here :)
