Through Your Child's Eyes Tool | Learning Disabilities - Understood - 61 views

    This site has tons of wonderful information for both parents and teachers on learning issues. This part of the site has actual simulations on what students with reading, writing, attention, math and/or organization issues experience everyday.

    I can't tell you how many times a parent has said, "I just don't understand what is going on." in a meeting. This will help them experience what their child is going through on a daily basis.

    It's wonderful for teachers to experience these simulations to remind themselves of how difficult it is for our struggling students and how very brave they are to show up everyday in our classrooms.

Nine Ways to Improve Class Discussions - 137 views

    "I once heard class discussions described as "transient instructional events." They pass through the class, the course, and the educational experiences of students with few lingering effects. Ideas are batted around, often with forced participation; students don't take notes; and then the discussion ends-it runs out of steam or the class runs out of time. If asked a few days later about the exchange, most students would be hard-pressed to remember anything beyond what they themselves might have said, if that. So this post offers some simple suggestions for increasing the impact of the discussions that occur in our courses."

How to Determine if Student Engagement is Leading to Learning | MindShift | KQED News - 82 views

    Engagement must be deliberately designed to improve student learning. This article talks specifically about technology, but I would challenge people to apply to any effort to "engage" learners.

The concept of different "learning styles" is one of the greatest neuroscience myths - 102 views

    The notion that people have different "learning styles" -- e.g., visual, auditory, kinesthetic -- is a myth with no evidence to support it. It is a widely-held belief that is harmful to students as it sends the message that are only capable of certain types of learning.

Always learning… by @viewthrudifeyes - - 5 views

    I have not only been looking at how I teach new topics but also those which I feel confident in delivering.

Lessons Learned from Genius Hour - 52 views

    After eight years of engaging our students with a Personal Passion Project during Term Four we shifted to a 'Genius Hour' model for 2015. In the end the results from the students were impressive but along the way some lessons were learned and we are looking forward to making some minor tweaks for 2016 that should further enhance the learning opportunities.

Creating a Generation of Innovators - 50 views

    Innovation is very much on the agenda in Australian and globally. The OECD publishes lists of nations most likely to succeed through innovation and nations seek to encourage increased innovation to maintain their competitive edge. The result of this in Australia is the recent launch of a new 'Innovation Australia' policy with wide reaching measures to encourage and foster a culture of innovation.

Does Mathematics Education need a re-think? - 56 views

    Once upon a time Mathematics was easy to teach. A typical lesson would begin with a direction towards a particular page of the text book and would conclude with the ceremonial marking of the answers. This process was repeated over and over, year after year and in the end students would be able to repeat the required method with a satisfactory degree of accuracy.

  • Give students the basics, but keep it short.
  • In his TED talk, Daniel Pink talks about the connection between creativity and what is know as Functional Fixedness—or people’s tendency to see only a single use for an object.
  • Whatever you do, dont try to grade creativity and innovation.
    Innovation and creativity can't be tested or graded, but they can be built up. Here's how.

The Joy of Teaching - 20 views

    For teachers in Australia the year is drawing rapidly to a close. It is a time for packing away classrooms, taking down displays of student learning and saying farewell to students as they move on to new classes. At the ending of one year it is worth taking a moment to ponder what is so remarkable about teaching as a profession.

What does intelligence look like? - 39 views

    How might we define intelligence? What do we mean when we speak of intelligence and what evidence do we seek when we look for it? Is it a singular, fixed attribute determined at birth or does it vary across time and environment?
