Compadre's Stockpile

Slavoj Žižek - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  • Ideology as an unconscious fantasy that structures reality
    • Compadre's Stockpile
       
      You want something to be true, perhaps because of some past traumas and maybe a little influence from the media telling you that good always prevails. So you make it your ideology and if you ever end up in a position of even the slightest power, such as a boss at any American company, you make it your mission to tell your employees that they are wrong about their sad ideas and that the right way to go is yours. You're a closeted idealist.

  • the attitude of professional privacy is not conducive to professional development
    • Build relationships
    • Observe the best
    • Ask questions
    • Share
    • Come prepared
  • preparation sparks much deeper conversation, more complete answers and better solutions. For informal collaborations, before I attempted to try out any new idea, I would ask one of my esteemed colleagues what they thought of it. In terms of assessments, the easiest way to improve the validity of the assessment is to have a colleague or group of colleagues review it.
  • develop a list of "how to" and "why for" questions regarding student data, instruction, discipline, etc.
  • bring my list of questions pertinent to the agenda in order to pick the groups' collective brain for answers.
  • one of the reasons that schools do not improve as fast as we would like them to is that when teachers get together for a purpose, rarely has research been done by the teachers, neither have ideas been mapped out prior to the meeting.
  • teachers, when it comes to their performance in the classroom, tend to stick to themselves.

When a Bookstore Closes, an Argument Ends - The New Yorker - 17 views

  • once a bookstore is gone we lose the particular opportunities for adjacency it offers,
  • Restaurants, bookstores, cafés—on a grander scale railway stations, on a lesser one chessboards near park benches—are the sinews of civil society.
  • Enlightenment happened more often in a café than a classroom.
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • By atomizing our experience to the point of alienation—or, at best, by creating substitutes for common experience (“you might also like…” lists, Twitter exchanges instead of face-to-face conversations)—we lose the common thread of civil life.
  • Books are not just other luxury items to be shopped for. They are the levers of our consciousness.

    I tried this tool on my iPad, but the interface was so small I couldn't even read the dashboard buttons. In today's mobile world, the tablet experience must be at least as good as if not better than the web. Too bad as it looks as though it could be an exciting tool.

ISTE | Build student-centered learning the right way - 28 views

  • when you ask Tiarra Bell, a rising senior at Science Leadership Academy in Philadelphia, what student-centered learning means to her, she doesn’t mention a word about tools and software. Instead, she embraces school because “the teachers are human and care about your life.”
  • Bell prefers projects over standardized tests “because those don’t show what I can do or who I am
  • Let the students own the classroom.
  • ...7 more annotations...
  • she encourages her students to move desks, sit on the floor, change the physical environment every day if they like.
  • Lean on the kids to tell the community about their schools.
  • He’s not above using the substitute teacher budget to fill classrooms with instructors for a half day to give his full-time educational staff time for these discussions.

      I think this approach has been used in our school district in some cases. Creative!
  • Understand you are asking for a paradigm shift.
  • In a student-centered learning classroom, the teacher doesn’t have to know everything. It’s OK for students to teach each other
  • The students themselves can be your most enthusiastic ambassadors showing how powerful learning is shaping their lives.
  • Ask technology to do the heavy lifting.
