Passion-Based Learning, Day 2: Passion Meets Frustration - 17 views

    "There seems to be a fine line between passion and frustration. But if we are experiencing emotions in our endeavors, that should say something about the learning climate we are participating in. It means we care deeply about the process and the outcomes."

Futurist: To fix education, think Web 2.0 - CNET News - 0 views

  • He suggested a "hybrid" learning approach. Schools can teach essential knowledge and critical thinking through somewhat traditional means. But they should complement that teaching with what Seely Brown called "passion-based learning" that focuses on getting students more engaged with topic experts.
    • Tom March
      This should be useful way for the less "techy" to accept and accomodate the contribution Web 2 can make.

Passion Based Learning, Week 4: Do One Thing Really Well | Reading By Example - 45 views

    Any time when we can put students in the role of teacher can be a benefit to everyone. I wouldn't say passion-based, student-driven learning is any less work than a more traditional model of instruction, but in this context, I could not image a better way to teach.

True believer keen on spreading the social media word - 19 views

  • ''Trying to take all of what is happening on Twitter in is like drinking from a fire hydrant,'' he says. ''So you end up thinking of it as a stream that's flowing past you; you throw your hook in and pull out an idea and if it's good then you let it go and let other people share in it.''
    "ROLAND Gesthuizen describes himself as a social media evangelist. His passion for social media and Twitter in particular extends beyond the global power of tapping into and sharing ideas. For his students it has brought the outside world to his classroom in a way that could never be imagined."

How Blogging and Tweeting Reinvigorated my Passion for Teaching | Canadian Education As... - 84 views

  • The worst thing that anyone can do is to get stuck in a rut. This is especially true ifyou are a teacher! This blog is the beginning of a challenge that I have made for myself (and for any other teachers): try something new!
  • Change is necessary. Clean out your binders and see your classroom with a new set of eyes. Who knows what we’ve been missing.
  • There was no way to anticipate the extent to which blogging and tweeting would change my understanding of education, but these simple steps allowed me to enhance my practice and provide a richer learning environment for my students. Reaching beyond our classroom walls has meant so much for our school, and we’ve been rewarded with learning experiences worth remembering.

World of Warcraft Finds Its Way Into Class | MindShift - 36 views

  • “When I bring these to their other teachers, I am consistently told, ‘I don’t get anything like this from them,’” Sheehy said in reference to the writing her students produce. They write complex arguments because they are passionate about the game, the storyline, and the class. “When there is no passion you get dutiful, for the grade work,” she said.

UKEdMag: Classroom Leadership vs Classroom Management by @RTBCoaching - - 29 views

    Few people enter the teaching profession because they are passionate about controlling behaviour or disciplining prospective pupils. Most become educators because they want to make a positive difference in students' lives. However, countless well-intentioned yet potentially ill-prepared teachers find themselves in situations during the school year where they feel compelled to use forms of intimidation, manipulation, bribery, yelling, scolding, or even false praise to make students behave. These archaic classroom management techniques often backfire- as they did for me early in my teaching career-and result in students losing respect for and disliking the teacher.
