What Students Remember Most About Teachers

What Students Remember Most About Teachers | Teacher Tools | Scoop.it
at the end of the day, most students won't remember what amazing lesson plans you've created. They won't remember how organized your bulletin boards are. How straight and neat are the desk rows.

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Teacher Tools | Scoop.it

"Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.I’m not saying we should just make the current system better… we should change it into something else."

Dire qu'il a toujours été de cette façon, ne compte pas comme une justification légitime pour expliquer pourquoi il devrait le rester. Enseignants et administrateurs du monde entier font des choses étonnantes, mais quelques-unes des choses que nous faisons toujours, en dépit de toutes les nouvelles solutions, de la recherche et des idées là-bas sont, pour le moins qu'on puisse dire, incroyable.

"Je ne dis pas que nous devrions tout simplement améliorer le système actuel ... nous devrions changer en autre chose".


  l'auteur islandais (Ingvi Hrannar Ómarsson) a compilé une liste de 14 choses qui sont obsolètes dans les écoles du 21ème siècle et il espère que cela inspirera des discussions animées sur l'avenir de l'éducation.

Des propositions intéressantes sur les usages numériques ou les pratiques pédagogiques obsolètes.

Are You Teaching Content Or Teaching Thought? -

Are You Teaching Content Or Teaching Thought? - | Teacher Tools | Scoop.it

"Thinking is troublesome.  For one, it is an intimate act splicing time and space. It is done right here, but it spans moments in the pasts and reaches out uncertainly towards moments in the future. Put another way, you think in a singular, precise space about plural, imprecise times.

It also resists uniformity (and education loves uniformity). Thought hinges on schema (familiar forms and patterns we then impose unfamiliar data to make sense of it), and emotion (in part, our internal response to the former). It is as diverse as character, experience, and affection. It’s like defining art, establishing criteria for beauty, or causing love.  And whether it knows it or not, education has a thinking problem."

What is your primary goal as a teacher?  Do you teach social studies or do you teach students?  While this may feel like we are splitting hairs, the distinction is an important one that is at the at the heart of your own pedagogical approach.  This is some nice food for thought on the topic to reflect on how and why you teach.

Teach teachers how to create magic

Teach teachers how to create magic | Teacher Tools | Scoop.it
What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don't teach to educators. The science advocate (and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan) offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.
