How do we know our students have really mastered the standards we are supposed to teach?

I did not even know how poor my assessments are until I listened to this packed 10 minute interview. Discussions include:

 

formative assessments must be frequent and fluid--sit down with standards to build questions that are reflective and align with standards to be taught

move away from what students say they know and what they actually know--you are gathering and giving to students information on their progress

grade less, but provide more feedback so that students do not become defeated, but rather gain confidence in their learning.

Is life really going to be easier when you can’t use your toothbrush because it’s lost its Internet connection?

 

My problems started with an all-too-common occurrence: My Wi-Fi router burned out and I had to replace it. This happens regularly enough that I keep another router as backup. I turned it on, then connected it to my cable modem and Sonos bridge for wireless music streaming. I was feeling smug — I used the same SSID and password as the previous one, figuring that all the devices would automatically connect to it.

 

Ah, if life in the IoT age were only so simple.

Les bonnes questions à se poser avant d'acquérir des tablettes.

Un IPAD ou toute autre technologie de ce type demande un certain investissement financier. Avant de décider du choix d'un appareil spécifique à destination des élèves, il est nécessaire de prendre en considération vos objectifs pédagogiques à long-terme. Il sera alors temps de vous poser des questions sur l'utilité de ces équipements et si l'achat vous semble pertinent , il conviendra de réfléchir en amont aux usages que vous pourrez en faire dans un cadre pédagogique.

According to a study by Harvard Business Review, young high achievers value mentoring and coaching and often leave their current gigs in a quest to have those needs met. Companies like Microsoft and KPMG have caught on by giving employees exposure to peers in different divisions to provide fresh ideas and new ways of thinking.

In addition to more formalized training and education programs, many companies also try to foster mentorship within their organizations, often with mixed results. Like matchmaking, mentorship can seem shrouded in mystique and luck. HR departments eagerly set up colleagues for lunches or other work “dates” and cross their fingers that the chemistry will spark. A seasoned pro will take an eager novice under his or her wing and the next generation of great leaders will be born.
