Daniel Pink at ASCD: why being persuasive in the classroom is more important than ever ... - 4 views

  •  
    "When we try to lead, teach, instruct, or explain, we usually spend most of our time talking about HOW to do something. We don't spend nearly enough time talking about the WHY. This is the cheapest persuasive tool you have: explaining WHY."

ASCD Express 8.09 - The What and Why of a Professional Learning Network - 1 views

  •  
    "No matter how old the profession, those who work in a particular field have always had the ability to communicate with one another to compare notes and improve services. The form of communication began with face-to-face contact in early civilization and evolved to a more digital form in today's age of technological advances. Technology has always improved communication methods by enabling all-not just professionals-the ability to consult, collaborate, and learn from others. This has progressed from the earliest printing presses to the most recent smartphones."

Educational Leadership:Getting Students to Mastery:Five Musts for Mastery - 5 views

  •  
    "Getting students to "mastery" implies that they have mastered a concept, have learned everything there is to know about it, and are ready to move on. This definition of mastery doesn't sit well with me. I've studied topics for years and never "mastered" them. In fact, I earned my master's degree in education more than a decade ago, but I learn how to be a better teacher every day. Each interaction with a student, every conference I attend, and daily conversations with colleagues continually expand my understanding. I can always learn more and explore a topic further."

A Walk Through the Brain - 4 views

  •  
    "Because this book's main focus is on the day-to-day classroom applications of brain-based research, I will not attempt to provide you with a thorough description of the physical brain and all its functions. However, it is beneficial for teachers to have at least a general awareness of how the brain physically functions. This knowledge can help teachers understand their students' needs or reactions and may provide a physiological basis for certain instructional decisions. So, let's take a quick walk through the brain."

  •  
    "Since I was wake at 5 AM on a Saturday (don't ask), I figured it was a good time to update my Personal Learning Network on Twitter. For years, I've been saying Twitter is the best free professional development tool available; I even teach an online course at two colleges on the subject."
