Community in the Classroom: An Approach to Curriculum and Instruction as a Means for t... - 1 views

    • Jessica M
      "It is essential to begin laying a foundation  for a community to emerge and develop from the first day of school; the initial experience must reflect the need for and importance of forming a classroom community." - same thing for online classes - the first activity, discussion, or contact needs to help develop class community
    • Jessica M
      "The teacher must remain true to the process and gradually invite students to direct their own learning." - getting students to lead discussions comfortably and be apart of a community is a process, you need to work students towards these goals and show them what you expect of them first
    • Jessica M
      "improving their self-concept and confidence is to work to build relationships within an intellectually safe classroom community" - very true for high school students, many often lack the confidence in their own work and understanding at first

      Three key feature of communities: Inclusiveness, Participation, and Shared Cognition 
    • Jessica M
      "promote and develop a classroom environment where students are trusted, willing, and able to engage in responsible dialogue and inquiry and to create meaning" - students need to trust each other, be able to listen and respect everyone's interactions in the class
    • Jessica M
      "School is a place where students should feel safe to  engage intellectually, socially, and emotionally in the act of  learning" - once students feel this safety within their community, they are more willing to participate and openly engage in their learning

Faculty Development for Online Teaching as a Catalyst for Change | The Sloan Consortium - 0 views

  • This action research study explored the change in face-to-face teaching practices as a result of faculty professional development for online teaching. Faculty’s initial teaching model is typically born from that of their own teachers, and they teach as they were taught. However, few have any online experience as a student or a teacher. Learning to teach online may be a catalyst for faculty to reflect on and evaluate their current teaching practices.
  • The results of the study indicated that learning to teach online has the potential to transform faculty’s assumptions and beliefs about teaching, changing their face-to-face teaching practices.
    A good discussion of how faculty learn to teach, how training to teach online improves their classroom practice, and the use of adult learning strategies
    The impact of training to teach online on classroom practice is very strong.

ADD - Attention Span - 0 views

    "normal attention span is 3 to 5 minutes per year of a child's age. Therefore, a 2-year-old should be able to concentrate on a particular task for at least 6 minutes, and a child entering kindergarten should be able to concentrate for at least 15 minutes. (Note: A child's attention span while watching TV is not an accurate measure of his or her attention span.)"

Increasing Access to Higher Education: A study of the diffusion of online teaching amon... - 0 views

    This paper reports on research from 913 professors from community colleges, four-year colleges, and university centers in an attempt to determine potential barriers to the continued growth in adoption of online teaching in higher education. Four variables are significantly associated with faculty satisfaction and adoption or continuation of online teaching - levels of interaction in their online course, technical support, a positive learning experience in developing and teaching the course, and the discipline area in which they taught. Recommendations for institutional policy, faculty development, and further research are included.

  • A closer look might provide insight into how this experience will assist in Rachel's development: Positive emotions are created from the established lap reading routine that generates an intimate closeness and feeling of security. Interactive social dialogues between Rachel and her mother build on prior knowledge and provide immediate feedback as they discuss each animal as the story progresses. The language they use to label, compare, explain, and classify creates a supportive context for structuring the processes of thinking and concept formation. Each of the domains of development—linguistic, cognitive, social, and emotional—is affected during Rachel's experience, and all play an important role in her development
  • As Rachel began to internalize the actions and language of her mother, she began to use these tools to guide and monitor her own processing behavior until she is now able to take over much of the responsibility for reading the book (Dorn, French, & Jones, 1998)
  • A framework for understanding the interrelated nature of the cognitive, social, emotional, linguistic, and literacy development of children; social interaction; and literature selection in grades K-4 is provided in the appendix. The purpose of the framework is to provide a general guide for teachers, parents, and other caregivers in the appropriate selection of books that takes into consideration the importance of child development.
    this article contains a useful reference table for developing interest in literacy and applies to development of literacy dispositions and life-long learning

An Overview of Constructive Developmental Theory (CDT) - 0 views

    A generation ago, developmental psychologists focused on infants, children and adolescents because it was assumed that by the time we reached our early twenties, the mind was fully developed. Several decades of research later, this premise has been proven to be false; the adult mind does continue to develop, albeit in different ways for different people.
    Kegan's theory of adult development consisting of five levels of increasing mental complexity. Based on work of Piaget, Kohlberg and Perry.

Jean Piaget - 0 views

    Jean Piaget (1896-1980) was a biologist who originally studied molluscs (publishing twenty scientific papers on them by the time he was 21) but moved into the study of the development of children's understanding, through observing them and talking and listening to them while they worked on exercises he set.
