Social media in the primary classroom – | teacher tools for this century | Scoop.it
Social media is controversial. It generally has a bad reputation and can stir up many passionate opinions, mostly negative. The idea of introducing sites such as YouTube and Twitter into the primary classroom is, for some, unthinkable. Indeed, there are dangers associated with social media and we must be cautious and aware. However, I have…

Humility is essential in teaching. Ultimately, I made mistakes and fretting over them was a bigger mistake. Something as simple as eating a lunch with them each day brought me closer to my students.

What do teachers think about this question? I would ask them too.

It is not that good teachers do not want to hear from their students. I think they do not know how to engage their students in dialogue. They might even be constrained by the very traditions of teaching.

Gendered words: Generic man and female airmen | The Economist

Gendered words: Generic man and female airmen | The Economist | teacher tools for this century | Scoop.it
LAST week's post on "guys" inspired some thoughts on the tricky landscape of gendered language. I mused that feminism and social solidarity between young men and women had made it a badge of honor for women to be addressed as "dude" or "you guys".
But extending male terms to women hasn't always been a feminist victory.

Educating is broader than teaching, at least in a formal way. Dewey described school as a place for formal education and education is living.

I would go further and say education is not always highly structured. It can happen without guidance for elders and can be peer related.

That does not mean teaching is irrevelant in a formal setting. It is essential. It is relational.

I don't disagree with the premise that being a teacher does not mean one is an educator. I get his point that an educator is something more than just being a teacher.

How to Build a Maker Culture in Your Library  

How to Build a Maker Culture in Your Library   | teacher tools for this century | Scoop.it

Diana Rendina writes: "School libraries are starting makerspaces all over the world. It’s an exciting time in education as we rediscover the power of creativity. But many schools rush to start makerspaces so quickly that they neglect building the maker culture. Developing a maker culture is a lot like developing a love of reading, it takes time and persistence and it’s totally worth it. Here’s a few ways that you can work to cultivate a love of making and creativity in your students."

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, March 20, 2017 1:42 PM

I know Diana's library is an incredible example of a makerspace, but that just didn't work for us. We are going to bring back a simpler, more focused version once our remodel is complete. Our high school librarian has set up a monthly maker corner that has been very successful. Projects that can be completed in a lunch period or that allow for collaborative work will be our goal. Diana's tips will help keep us from getting overwhelmed and keep the focus on making!
