10 Creative Risks to Take with Students This Year

10 Creative Risks to Take with Students This Year | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Ultimately, the most powerful creative element in the classroom is the teacher. You have the power to inspire students to take creative risks by modeling the process and being open and even vulnerable about your journey. You also have the power to create epic learning experiences that encourage students to take creative risks. So, in 2018, I would encourage you to choose one big creative risk and make it happen.

5 Principles of Outstanding Classroom Management

5 Principles of Outstanding Classroom Management | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Effective classroom management requires awareness, patience, good timing, boundaries, and instinct. There’s nothing easy about shepherding a large group of easily distractible young people with different skills and temperaments along a meaningful learning journey.

So how do master teachers do it?

To get a deeper understanding of experienced teachers’ go-to classroom management strategies, we took an informal poll on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Unsurprisingly, there is no silver bullet for classroom management success. That said, as we pored over the more than 700 responses, we did see some clear trends. Here are the most often cited and creative approaches.

It's Time to Weave Computational Thinking into K-12 -- THE Journal

It's high time for students to move beyond an hour of coding exercises and learn computational thinking. That's the message of a new report from Digital Promise that examines what's important to know and be able to do in a "computational world."

Digital Promise is a non-profit that that promotes the use of innovation in education, particularly as it uses digital technologies.

The new report, "Computational Thinking for a Computational World," explains its theme of computational thinking by borrowing a description from a long-ago article published by the Association for Computing Machinery: It is "a way of solving problems, designing systems and understanding human behavior that draws on concepts fundamental to computer science… a fundamental skill for everyone, not just computer scientists." More simply, the report noted, "The skill required to tell a computer what to do is programming. The thought process behind programming is computational thinking." What it isn't is humans thinking like computers. And, according to the report's authors, it's something that needs to be taught across subjects in K-12 schools.

Nurturing Intrinsic Motivation in Students - Edutopia

Nurturing Intrinsic Motivation in Students - Edutopia | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The key to preserving (not creating) intrinsic motivation is to nurture students to move to the next level. This also means that in the course of the school day, children must have a chance to do things that enable them to experience accomplishment and competence instead of feeling inadequate. Many believe that children have been constructed with a lot of resilience, so that a good day does not have to mean 90 percent performance, or even 50 percent. It’s not clear what the percentage is, and it may vary across children, but what is clear is that having some positive accomplishment every day will keep kids motivated.

The Bible’s Influence: The Bible and Written Literacy

The Bible’s Influence: The Bible and Written Literacy | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The desire to read the Bible is a powerful motivation for learning to read and write. At the same time, the desire that others might be equipped to read the Bible is a powerful motivation for Bible translators and others to develop literacy programs that empower people with new skills.

Take English as an example. Just 70 years before William Shakespeare put pen to paper, there was no viable written English language. Scholars and academics at universities and professions in business and law spoke Latin, the universal language of the day throughout England and Europe. The king and nobility spoke Norman French. English peasants, a marginalized people group of that time, who spoke a throw away language, English were seen as beyond reach of the Gospel.

The most expensive things you don't need!

Revolting Facts About Fast Food Burgers. Did You Know?

Amazing facts you probably don't want to know about!
The first English translation of the Bible was done in the 14th century by John Wycliffe. William Tyndale took English translation to a whole new level by doing an excellent translation of the Bible creating modern English. Translating from Hebrew and Greek, his translation was accurate and at times poetic and memorable. Caught, tried and sentenced to death, his dying wish as he was burned at the stake was “Lord! Open the King of England’s eyes.” The following year King Henry VIII allowed English Bibles to be distributed in England. Then, in 1539, Henry VIII allowed publication of “the Great Bible,” which included Tyndale’s translation.

Even more amazing is that in a period of 100 years reading and writing English among males in England went from about 5 percent of the population to 25% eventually reaching 40% of the population. By 1770, shopkeepers were 95% literate. Literacy in England is directly attributable to the Bible.

What Wycliffe and Tyndale did for literacy through Bible translation has been ‘systematized’ by Wycliffe Bible Translators and our partner organization like SIL International. A number of years ago in Peru, children and adults were taught to read first in their mother tongue and then gradually transitioned into reading Spanish. Sometimes called “bilingual education,” the program was highly successful preparing students to read their newly translated Bibles and also to benefit from the country’s educational system (that was in Spanish).

Now labeled “multilingual education,” or sometimes “mother tongue first” or “first language education,” the approach continues to work. Longitudinal studies show that children who are first taught to read and write in their mother tongue bridge more easily into education in a national language. They stay in school longer and are more successful in their studies.

Mofu is a language spoken in Northern Cameroon. The New Testament is available in Mofu, and so is a program of multilingual education. A recent report showed that schools using this mother-tongue-first approach had a passing rate of 99 percent on the end-of-primary-school exams. Schools not using the mother tongue as the means of teaching the early grades had a maximum of 49 percent passing.

When I’ve visited schools in places like Cameroon, the Philippines, and China using this approach, I’ve observed that students in classes using their mother tongue were clearly more involved in the learning process than were their peers being taught in French, English, or Mandarin. In the traditional classes, students sat in rows and learned—or memorized—the lessons on the chalkboard. But in the non-traditional, mother-tongue-first classes, the students were animated, actively interacting with their teacher.

Most language communities today exist in the context of other languages, and over time, more and more governments have changed their language policies to include a multilingual approach to education.

Literacy and education create opportunities that help communities deal with social justice issues and combat the spread of diseases like HIV, AIDS and malaria. It’s said that teaching a mother to read is more effective than putting a doctor in the community. She will be proactive; the doctor is reactive. Dana Roberts, director of the Center for Global Christianity and Missions at Boston University, has said, “if you look worldwide at poverty, literacy is the main thing that helps you rise out of poverty.”

For a large number of language communities, the first step out of poverty—the foundational step—is gaining a written form for their language. When linguist/translators come alongside mother tongue speakers to help them develop their languages, their first project is often working together to create an alphabet that fits the sound structure of the language. Once there is an alphabet, there can be books and literacy—first in the mother tongue and then in a language of wider communication.

Wycliffe’s vision is for every man, woman, and child to hear the Good News in the language and form they understand best, and literacy programs are at the center of our work as Bible translators.

And because of our commitment to serve the whole person, we are delighted that Bible translation and the accompanying development of alphabets, books and literacy worldwide is often the starting point for solutions to some of the world’s most pressing humanitarian issues.

Wycliffe Bible Translators, the largest scripture translation organization in the world recently re-elected Bob Creson to this fourth consecutive term as President and CEO.

Avoiding 'Missed Opportunities' in Writing Instruction - Pt. 2

Avoiding 'Missed Opportunities' in Writing Instruction - Pt. 2 | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The Role of Correcting, Teacher as facilitator: Teachers often ask me, "How do I correct their writing when there is so much to correct and how do I go about telling them what to fix?" I have a few guidelines that might help teachers in thinking about when and how to correct.

Ask yourself, have I taught the students the error they are making? If you know that you have already taught a rule, a spelling pattern, a convention, sight words, transition words, etc. then you have to hold students accountable. Provide a list of all the things you have covered that they should go through and check for. Editing checklists of what was taught in YOUR classroom. Sometimes we provide standard editing checklists, but they are not as meaningful as those that come from what they know and was taught in your class. As teachers of writing we often do a lot of editing practice by correcting our students' papers and having them just fix the errors WE found. This practice does not lead to transfer. Students do not pay attention to what they are fixing and why. Guide them to find their own errors by providing a familiar checklist and hold them accountable.

Correct a "chunk" of the writing with the student first. A chunk can be a paragraph, a page, an introduction, a short portion of the writing and make note of the errors they are making in a small section to apply throughout the rest of their writing. Students will make common errors throughout a piece of writing. If we focus on a small chunk they can begin to apply it throughout the rest of their writing.

Notice and focus on one teachable moment at a time. These are the moments when we do one on one conferring with students. Show them one new strategy or skill as a writer and have then apply it throughout the text. This is an opportunity to teach them something new as a writer to work on as they improve their writing.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

While I was working as a training illustrator for the military it was critical to check that the words matched the images of equipment or concepts the objective trained soldiers to utilize. Writing skills can be developed in any content field. Creating a need for the student to verbally communicate demands the student be able to apply learned writing skills to make meaningful communication.

 

Two things are helpful for improving writing skills in any field even if one is not trained in teaching English.

 

  1. Finding self-help enabling sources of reference to ensure memory of pre-learned writing skills helps successful written communications to be developed and also will guide the student to build out from those skills by applied use in any written communication used in real life application.

 

  1. Review Noted taking skills.

Note taking for later reference is a skill today’s students have come to except the teacher or boss to deliver to them rather than master note taking. Note taking is a self-study that helps the student communicate ideas to internalize study reflection and thought. This internalization is a critical thinking skill.

Study: Most Essential Behaviors for Positive School Culture ID'd

Study: Most Essential Behaviors for Positive School Culture ID'd | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Which student behaviors have the greatest impact in creating a safe, supportive learning environment? An analysis of more than 152 million student behavior instances collected over seven years by educators in 645 schools has enabled researchers to identify the most essential behaviors in creating a positive school culture. The behaviors are categorized in a new compendium called the Positive School Culture Inventory™ (PSCI). In a new white paper titled  “The Positive School Culture Inventory: Purpose, Rationale, and Development,”  school climate experts Kent Peterson and Tom Hierck describe how schools can use this inventory to measurably improve school culture outcomes.

In the paper, which is published by Kickboard, Peterson and Hierck explain the benefits of positive behavior management practices, such as those implemented in Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and other culture-oriented programs. The authors then describe how a methodology called the “positivity ratio” can be used to objectively evaluate the progress of school climate efforts. Finally, they discuss the development of the PSCI and list the behaviors proven to have the greatest impact in helping schools move toward the target positivity ratio.
