27 effective ways to get students to pay attention - Daily Genius - 5 views

  •  
    "
    Despite all your planning, hard work, grading at home, housekeeping in the classroom and (physical and virtual) paperwork world, and killer teaching skills, learning isn't going to happen if your students aren't really paying attention.

    They have to listen and participate in order to learn - at least a little bit. So what do you do with students who just aren't paying attention? Each student and each situation may require a little bit of a different approach - you wouldn't address kindergarteners the same way you'd address and deal with high schoolers."

Why It's Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill | ... - 1 views

  •  
    "Friday March 14 is the 135th anniversary of Albert Einstein's birthday, a good time to think about the importance of asking questions. This was a big theme for Einstein, who told us, "The important thing is not to stop questioning," while also urging us to question everything and "Never lose a holy curiosity."

    Einstein understood that questioning is critical to learning and solving problems. If he were alive today, Einstein would see a world in which questioning has become more important than ever before. But he might also be left wondering why, for the most part, we still don't encourage questioning or teach it to our children."

How Do Students That Hate School Learn? - 1 views

  •  
    "It has been my privilege to know many students at many grade and age levels, who have said they hated school. They were all different, referred to as brilliant, disenchanted, disengaged, unmotivated, unchallenged, stubborn, creative, and many more adjectives than a list on a page can hold. Sure, we all realize that students will say they hate school, because that's the thing kids say, and it is immediately preceded by, or followed by, "I'm bored!" But we need to consider what all students say on this subject, at any level, age, or degree, because there's no template for students at risk."

Lisa Nielsen: The Innovative Educator: The Social Media Game Elementary School Students... - 0 views

  •  
    "I'm a student voice advocate. Fortunately, my employer supports this and as such, we have been incorporating the voice of students in the guidelines around social media (You can see the teen guidelines at schools.nyc.gov/socialmedia). Most recently I had the opportunity to speak with hundreds of elementary students about social media and which platforms they are using. Admittedly, I'm not much of a user of social media platforms for the under 13 set, so I knew I had a lot to learn. Interestingly, across the board, one platform rose to the top and I had never heard of it before."

Students Assessing Teachers: 10 Critical Questions - Brilliant or Insane - 0 views

  •  
    "Like Donald Graves, I believe that the teacher is the chief learner in the classroom. I also believe that positioning ourselves as learners sustains our passion for our work. When we make a study of our teaching, we discover things we would not have otherwise. Lights flicker. We're continually inspired.

    What would happen if you became a learner and embraced the idea students assessing teachers? This has nothing to do with mandating the use of student feedback for teacher evaluation purposes. This kind of assessment is off the record. It's a gift that your students give you, and one that you might use in service to them."

Why Your Students Forgot Everything On Your PowerPoint Slides | EdSurge News - 5 views

  •  
    "Don't fret, we've all been there: You're up late the night before Thursday and you have to teach a lesson at 8 AM the next day. So, what do you do? Throw some text on a PowerPoint and get ready to talk through your points. Couldn't hurt, right? You might not always read straight off of the slides--they'll just help keep your lecture on track, and if you lose your place, the text is right there for you.

    Unfortunately, whether you're discussing Columbus with 4th graders or quantum physics with college freshmen, you may be hurting your students' learning more than helping them"
