The Visual Article Infograph-

I like that it has different colors to separate the different sections/ideas and different pictures/stick figures doing differnet things. But I think some of the shorthand could be reworded and made more clear.

Kathy Schrock: 6 Apps That Target Higher-Order Thinking Skills -- THE Journal | Professional Learning | Scoop.it
A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:
raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems.

30 Lessons For Teachers From Dr. Seuss - TeachThought

30 Lessons For Teachers From Dr. Seuss - TeachThought | Professional Learning | Scoop.it
Dr. Seuss is gold–whimsical and visually interesting traipses through surreal worlds, and always full of life advice.

And life advice is learning advice, and learning advice–well, that’s why we’re all here, yes?

There are themes below that apply directly to the responsibilities of a teacher. Let’s face it–teaching is an emotional roller coaster, and a microcosm for life itself, full of tedium and wonder, disappointment and triumph, down days and days to celebrate. Take #11 for example–you have brains in your head and feet on your choose, you can steer yourself any direction you choose–can be both encouragement to elementary students, or high school students taking themselves–and life–too seriously

Are you an educator who is thinking about taking the plunge into using Twitter in your classroom? Many of us think of Twitter as a place to share pictures of our latest meal or as the place where industry gurus post their greatest observations. It’s common to wonder: how can we use Twitter in a meaningful way—especially in a classroom?

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator | Professional Learning | Scoop.it
The educator becomes a connected educator and through sharing, is an active participant and contributor to the connected educator movement.

Being a connected educator means connecting with other teachers to exchange ideas, improve your teaching practice, and in turn, make a change in education. It is only through being connected that we can collaborate and help to foster learning for the 21st century and beyond. (Being a Connected Educator)

The gap between what is and what could be in education is larger than it ever has  been.  I believe this is largely due to technology and the ability to establish global connections because of social media. Educators are more connected and more aware about education trends than any time in the history of public education.

Imagine how education could be transformed if all educators use their own personal, often passion-driven voices. The bottom line is that if any individual educator believes there are flaws in the education, that it can be done better, then s/he has the responsibility to say something. I reaching the point that I am starting to believe it is a moral imperative for educators to share what they know to be true with other educators; and with administrators, students’ families, community members, politicians . . . the larger global society.

10 Communication Secrets of Great Leaders | eLeadership | eSkills | Leadership

10 Communication Secrets of Great Leaders | eLeadership | eSkills | Leadership | Professional Learning | Scoop.it

No one ever became a great leader without first becoming a great communicator.

Great leaders connect with people on an emotional level every time they speak. Their words inspire others to achieve more than they ever thought possible.

Great communicators are intentional about it, and there are 10 secrets they rely on to deliver a powerful message. Put these secrets to work in your communication and watch your influence soar.

1. They Know Their Audience

2. They Are Experts In Body Language

3. They Are Honest

4. They Are Authentic

5. They Speak With Authority

6. They Speak To Groups As Individuals

7. They Have Ears (And They Use Them)

8. They Use Phrases Like "It's My Fault," "I Was Wrong," and "I'm Sorry"

9. They Solicit Feedback

10. They're Proactive

Leaders with the best communication skills don't waste time playing catch-up. They're quick to head off the rumor mill by sharing bad news in a timely manner. They also give clear, concise goals and directions so people don't waste their time heading in the wrong direction.

5 ways to truly create a culture of innovation in your school - Daily Genius

5 ways to truly create a culture of innovation in your school - Daily Genius | Professional Learning | Scoop.it

"Schools and organisations which say they are looking to innovate and find new models for education are just as often to be found resorting to re-naming their head of IT as ‘Head of Innovation’ and sticking motivational posters on the staffroom wall which talk about ‘impossible is nothing’, but offer nothing more than flim-flam.

So, when you’ve still got to deliver high grade exam results, how do you start to create a culture which delivers new ideas and new ways to implement them? Well, you could do worse than follow these:"

5 Ways To Use Word Clouds In The Classroom | Edudemic

5 Ways To Use Word Clouds In The Classroom | Edudemic | Professional Learning | Scoop.it
The popularity of word clouds remains pretty constant in education, and it’s not difficult to see why. They’re a great way for students to distil and summarize information. They help students get to the crux of an issue, sorting through important ideas and concepts quickly in order to see what’s important. And “see” is the operative word here, because word clouds are certainly nice to look at. They speak fantastically to humans’ affinity for the visual, and are particularly useful for visual learners.

However, it’s important to remember that the process of creating word clouds is just as important as the resulting resources. They’re fun to make and so do a great job engaging reluctant learners. Word clouds have tons of potential to be used in all types of ways.
