The Power of Being a Connected Educator

The Power of Being a Connected Educator | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Spread the loveA librarian shares her journey from approaching burnout to becoming her school’s technology innovator. By Nikki D. Robertson During the 2009–2010 school year, I became convinced I was missing out on something. So many of the educators around me were excited about their role, innovating at every turn and sharing those experiences with the world. I couldn’t help but wonder how they were able to do what they were doing with so much passion. Reflecting on this period of my career, it’s safe to say I was burnt out, but I also realized that feeling would only be …

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, June 3, 11:14 AM

A pesar de que hay muchos espacios que en esencia son muy parecidos unos de otros, no hay un enfoque único para planificar espacios de creación como los makerspaces. Estos espacios deben ser tan únicos y significativos como las comunidades a las que se destinan. Los enlaces y espacios que se describen en el presente artículo pretenden ofrecer una perspectiva nueva y única de lo que pueden ser los makerspaces. Cada espacio que se describe a continuación es único, enfatizando diferentes habilidades o temas. Aunque algunos de estos espacios no se encuentran en las escuelas (K-12), sin duda hay cosas que se pueden aplicar muy bien a la educación. (Laura Fleming, World of Learning, April 4, 2017).

50 Ways To Measure Understanding - TeachThought

50 Ways To Measure Understanding - TeachThought | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"How do you measure what a student understands?

Not give them an assessment, score it, then use that score to imply understanding. Rather, how do you truly ‘uncover’ what they ‘know’–and how ‘well’ they know it?"

The Future of Education: Trends we are sure to witness

The Future of Education: Trends we are sure to witness | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

We are living in an era when technology has evolved our lives beyond our imagination. So used to tech-enabled solutions, even the thought of living without them comes across as a nightmare to us. Following the herd for good, the education sector is also not spared from the shower of such tech advancements.

Today, students are happy learning lessons on their tablets and are enjoying the bliss of VR to go back in time and live in different eras—instead of merely reading their history notes. We are already witnessing the future of education now, and as it moves forward, it will indeed continue to be a treat.

Amidst all such advancements and cutting-edge tech inclusions, the education sector is destined to evolve.

To better understand where it’s headed, let’s have a look at some of the ways technology inclusions will be spelled out in the education sector in the years to come.

Disengaged Teachers: A problem we need to solve

Disengaged Teachers: A problem we need to solve | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I frequently hear about high numbers of students who are not engaged in their learning, but I hear less about teachers who are not engaged in their work. However, a Gallup Poll found that 57% of teachers report that they are “not engaged” at work, with an additional 13% reporting that they are “actively disengaged.” This is alarming. How can we expect students to be engaged in their learning if their own teachers are not engaged?

10 reasons Finland's school system is better 

10 reasons Finland's school system is better  | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Many people are familiar with the stereotype of the hard-working, rote memorization, myopic tunnel vision of Eastern Asian study and work ethics. Many of these countries, like China, Singapore, and Japan amongst others routinely rank in the number one spots in both math and science.

Some pundits point towards this model of exhaustive brain draining as something Americans should aspire to become. Work more! Study harder! Live less. The facts and figures don’t lie – these countries are outperforming us, but there might be a better and healthier way to go about this.

Finland is the answer – a country rich in intellectual and educational reform has initiated over the years a number of novel and simple changes that have completely revolutionized their educational system. They outrank the United States and are gaining on Eastern Asian countries.

Are they cramming in dimly-lit rooms on robotic schedules?  Nope. Stressing over standardized tests enacted by the government? No way. Finland is leading the way because of common-sense practices and a holistic teaching environment that strives for equity over excellence. Here are 10 reasons why Finland’s education system is dominating America and the world stage

"Research on how students learn has also demonstrated that well-designed project- and inquiry-based approaches, often called “experiential learning,” increase student learning (Brown et al., 1989; Kuh, 2008). Project-based learning situated in real communities, where students have opportunities to work on open-ended, integrative problems, has been shown to have long-term positive impacts on students, including confidence in their STEM courses, confidence in their jobs, and confidence in their capacity to solve complex problems (Vaz and Quinn, 2014). Significantly, research has found that novelty, unpredictability, and mutability in projects enhances learning, growth, and confidence, and that women and students of color more readily embrace STEM subjects and questions when the material is contextualized (Brunner, 1997; Margolis et al., 2000; Tobias, 1993; Tsui, 2007). Though not all courses and programs that embrace experiential learning integrate the humanities, arts, and STEMM subjects, many do. This may be due, in part, to the fact that many real-world problems have dimensions that are humanistic, scientific, technical, medical, and aesthetic." (page 40)

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

Strategies to integrate the disciplines in "project- and inquiry-based approaches, often called 'experiential learning'" continue to generate increasing support across the learning and employment sectors. Clearly a consensus is emerging that creative, collaborative problem solving is our best hope to engage students more deeply in their own learning and the most effective way to organize employees for productive problem-solving.

"Whether a principal, superintendent, head of technology, or head of curriculum, there is likely a gem of a resource among your staff who could push your Future Ready agenda forward. Long gone are the days when librarians were simply the “keeper of books,” and the administrators who have grown to realize this have found it much easier to accomplish their strategic vision by mobilizing this dedicated and knowledgeable part of their staff.

10 reasons every teacher needs a Professional Learning Network

10 reasons every teacher needs a Professional Learning Network | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

According to Marc-André Lalande, “a Personal Learning Network is a way of describing the group of people that you connect with to learn their ideas, their questions, their reflections, and their references".

Your PLN is not limited to online interactions, but it is that online, global interactive part that really makes it special. It is personal because you choose who’s part of that group; you choose if you want to lurk–just check out what people are saying–or if you share; because you choose when to do so, and how to do so.”
