"By most measures, Massachusetts is one of the nation’s highest-performing states when it comes to K-12 education. It ranks first in the country on lists from Education Week and U.S. News, and is singled out for its high reading and math achievement, as well as its relatively narrow equity gaps among different ethnic and socioeconomic groups in academic performance."

The classroom should be a safe place for students to test ideas and learn by trial and error. Unfortunately, when assessments are high stakes, students are less likely to take chances in their learning because they may only get one shot at getting it right on the test.

"Morning meetings have long been a staple of elementary classrooms, but they can help students in all grades transition into class. Riverside School, a pre-K to 12th-grade school in Ahmedabad, India, uses a version of morning meetings at every grade level as 'a pure relationship-building time.' Bonding exercises led by teachers or students include physical or social and emotional activities, or discussions of sensitive topics like bullying."

Relevance of Philosophy.pdf

Relevance of Philosophy.pdf | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it

"Elementary training in philosophy is, I think, crucial for a functional democracy, as it teaches our citizens how to think while at the same time acquainting them with some of the most influential ideas in the history of human kind. Studying philosophy is also a proven gateway to very practical things, such as entrance to law, business or medical school. And philosophy has given humanity some of its profoundest achievements, from logic itself to the concepts of democracy, women rights and animal rights. Take what follows as a brief how-to guide to further appreciation of philosophy in our society. We will all be much better for it. 

 

Cheers,Massimo Pigliucci"

What Teachers and Sports Coaches Can Learn From Each Other | MindShift | KQED News

What Teachers and Sports Coaches Can Learn From Each Other | MindShift | KQED News | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it
“We as teachers have a lot to learn from coaches,” said Jeff Gilbert, a former teacher and coach and now principal of Hillsdale High School in San Mateo, California. Most important, student learning would improve if teachers included more public performances in their instruction, he said.

In sports, players practice their skills in order to play the game better, and coaches modify what and how they train based on the athletes’ performance. Students in the classroom would benefit from similar high-stakes public performances, where they demonstrate what they’ve learned. In this way, the learning has a purpose, the same as throwing and catching drills in baseball.

Learning grounded in performance also allows teachers to give students constant feedback, like a coach who tweaks a player’s stance or swing. Though it’s more difficult for teachers to assess how well students are learning—unlike coaches, who can see immediately whether what they’ve taught has stuck—projects that include performances give more opportunities for immediate feedback.

Middle school math teacher Marlo Warburton shares how she frames challenging experiences in her classroom so that students are more inclined to persevere and take on a challenge. Building on her own love of learning, Marlo focuses on praising efforts and students' willingness to persevere and take on challenges so that they are learning. She presents challenging learning in such a way that students are more likely to accept, even enjoy, the challenge and are willing to work hard and persevere in order to successfully complete a given task.

"At the risk of characterizing teaching and learning in a factory context let’s face it, classrooms are a kind of marketplace system with an exchange of ideas and thinking incentivized by a variety of factors.

Opinion | We Aren’t Built to Live in the Moment

Opinion | We Aren’t Built to Live in the Moment | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it
We are misnamed. We call ourselves Homo sapiens, the “wise man,” but that’s more of a boast than a description. What makes us wise? What sets us apart from other animals? Various answers have been proposed — language, tools, cooperation, culture, tasting bad to predators — but none is unique to humans.

What best distinguishes our species is an ability that scientists are just beginning to appreciate: We contemplate the future. Our singular foresight created civilization and sustains society. It usually lifts our spirits, but it’s also the source of most depression and anxiety, whether we’re evaluating our own lives or worrying about the nation. Other animals have springtime rituals for educating the young, but only we subject them to “commencement” speeches grandly informing them that today is the first day of the rest of their lives.

A more apt name for our species would be Homo prospectus, because we thrive by considering our prospects. The power of prospection is what makes us wise. Looking into the future, consciously and unconsciously, is a central function of our large brain, as psychologists and neuroscientists have discovered — rather belatedly, because for the past century most researchers have assumed that we’re prisoners of the past and the present.

Behaviorists thought of animal learning as the ingraining of habit by repetition. Psychoanalysts believed that treating patients was a matter of unearthing and confronting the past. Even when cognitive psychology emerged, it focused on the past and present — on memory and perception.
Continue reading the main story

But it is increasingly clear that the mind is mainly drawn to the future, not driven by the past. Behavior, memory and perception can’t be understood without appreciating the central role of prospection. We learn not by storing static records but by continually retouching memories and imagining future possibilities.

10 Schools of Philosophy and Why You Should Know Them

10 Schools of Philosophy and Why You Should Know Them | Educational Pedagogy | Scoop.it


For your reading pleasure, here are ten schools of philosophy you should know about. Some of them are commonly misunderstood, and we correct that problem here.
Nihilism

The leading philosophy among angsty teens who misunderstand Nietzsche.

The root of the word 'nihilism' is derived from the Latin nihil, meaning "nothing", and it is a more of a series of related positions and problems than a single school of thought. The key idea of it is the lack of belief in meaning or substance in an area of philosophy. For example, moral nihilism argues that moral facts cannot exist; metaphysical nihilism argues that we cannot have metaphysical facts; existential nihilism is the idea that life cannot have meaning and nothing has value—this is the kind that most people think of when they hear the word.

As opposed to popular understanding, Nietzsche was not a nihilist. Rather, he wrote about the dangers posed by nihilism and offered solutions to them. Real nihilists included the Russian nihilist movement.

Hi!
All over the world, CLIL-based learning is becoming the desire of the schools since it presents to students the benefit of learning a foreign language through several subjects (content). Therefore, I should be prepared with material that involves English language and content; therefore, this article is very appropiate for me. In this article, there are 5 excellent YouTube channels recommended for science teachers, the channels that most caught my attention are:
1.Make me genious--> This channel is addressed to children; therefore, the videos are cartoons. I like the fact that in this channel you can find topics as human body systems and plants.
2. Brain stuff--> In this channel you can find the science behind the world around us. It explain the nature of different phenomena we experience in our daily lives;therefore, it can be more interesting for students.
