There is no doubt that social media provide excellent ways to communicate with parents, but they are not the only ways. It is one way that includes face-to-face conversations. It would be interesting to find out what Derrida might conclude in using his concept differance which was not a correctly spelled word.

Technology Alone Won’t Transform Education – We Need A Whole New Approach To Teaching And Learning

Technology Alone Won’t Transform Education – We Need A Whole New Approach To Teaching And Learning | Education | Scoop.it
Perhaps the main reason for this disappointing impact is that the inclusion of technologies in schools has done little to change the ‘tell and practise’ approach to teaching and learning – the predominant pedagogical practice of our time.

In this model, teachers tell students what knowledge is and what is worth knowing; meanwhile, students invest their limitless capacity for investigating, thinking critically, creating, hypothesising, and collaborating by memorising and practising what they’re told.

Hands-Off Teaching Cultivates Metacognition

Hands-Off Teaching Cultivates Metacognition | Education | Scoop.it

A great teacher doesn't teach as much as possible. A great teacher teaches as little as possible, while modeling the behaviors of how to figure something out. Perhaps it seems too obvious to say that your goal should be for students to think as much as possible during your class. But in this case, "thinking" really means thinking about the material plus how to dig in, break it apart, understand it, and build on that. It means thinking about how to constantly get better.

My Personalized Learning Approach Isn’t About Tech. It’s About Dignity. - EdSurge News

Personalized learning truly becomes "personal" once we develop real relationships with our students. There’s a spectrum of how much time and energy teachers can devote to building and maintaining these relationships. It can start within the classroom, extend out into the school, go deeper into the family and out into the community.
