Bringing STEM to Light: Teaching about Light and Optics - Canvas Network | Free online ... - 0 views

  •  
    "Light is a fascinating and familiar topic for children and adults. It's also rich and complex, which is great if you are teaching a graduate level course in Quantum Mechanics. But how do you lay the foundation for this exciting topic? What do you teach to the youngest would-be scientists?

    This self-paced, 5 week course is designed for both formal and informal educators who want to teach children ages 6-14 about the science of light and optics.

    Starting with a simple kit and some basic activities, we'll work through understanding the basics of light, color, shadows, reflection and refraction. Each module offers easy to digest science content, application of science process skills, connections to real world technologies and engaging activities designed to build your comfort and confidence with light and optics. Throughout each module, guidance (suggestions) on how to use and create learning experiences for children will be provided through online discussions and other opportunities for self-reflection and sharing. This process will support the completion of a final project."

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - - 4 views

  • Recently, I’ve been thinking of the universal truths in teaching. Students should be first. Don’t always start planning with a standard. Questions matter more than answers. Trust is a currency of a human classroom.

    So I thought I’d gather twelve of them to start with. The idea of “good teaching” is an idea we get at a variety of different ways, So then, here are some rules we might consider when making sense of this idea of what makes a teacher great.

    "Googler to Googler places employees from across departments into teaching roles. Classes taught Googler to Googler-everything from kickboxing to parenting- are initiated and designed by employees. Telling your employees that you want them to learn is different than asking them to promote that culture themselves. Giving employees teaching roles makes learning part of the way employees work together. It's a remarkable thing to put someone in teaching mode. In a way, you get to see the best of them.

Educational Leadership:Teaching with Mobile Tech:How to Transform Teaching with Tablets - 8 views

  •  
    "When you look at the very best work happening in iPad classrooms, you'll see students creating media, showcasing their understanding, collaborating with peers, and communicating with broad audiences. The pockets of excellence are ever-present and inspiring. On the whole, however, tablets are most often used to reproduce existing practices-to distribute resources and enable students to take notes.
    Past generations of school leaders might have been forgiven for permitting these patterns of technology adoption, but today we have the benefit of history to look back on. We know that without a change in our technology integration strategies, there's no reason to expect that a new device will magically create new teaching practices in schools.
    To make the most of the investment in tablet computers, school leaders need to do three things. First, they need to work with their communities to articulate a clear vision for how new technology will improve instruction. Second, they need to help educators imagine how new technologies can support those visions. Finally, they need to support teachers and students on a developmental journey that will take them from using tablets for consumption to using them for curation, creation, and connection."

    "There's a very easy way to make better use of the iPad in class. Simply become more aware of what you're using the iPad for when teaching. This is where the SAMR model comes in, something I believe all teachers should be familiar with. The SAMR model is a 4 stage framework, illustrated below by the fantastic Sylvia Duckworth, creator of many great sketch notes."

How Memory, Focus and Good Teaching Can Work Together to Help Kids Learn | MindShift - 2 views

  •  
    "Everyone has a pet theory on how to improve public education: better professional development for teachers, more money, better curriculum, testing for accountability, teacher incentives, technology, streamlined bureaucracy. Policymakers have been trying these solutions for years with mixed results. But those who study the brain have their own ideas for improving how kids learn: focus on teaching kids how to learn."

Should an iPad change the way you teach? Part 1 - Educate 1 to 1 - 0 views

  •  
    ""You've got to know the rules to break them." Says McQueen. In my role, this means two things:

    It means that you are never asking teachers to do anything other than teach in the ways that they know work and inspire their students. You are simply giving them additional options.

    It means that you need to train up teachers to be confident with technology - if they know what they can do, then there is a choice of they do with that knowledge"

    "Are you allowing students to bring their own devices to learn where you work? If so, you'll want to become familiar with these seven digital resources.  Each resource is followed by a link to more information and advice for use in the classroom. What's great about all of these tools is they can be used in environments even if students have a regular phone without browser or app capabilities.  "
