Salute to Teachers - 18 views

  •  
    The GLOBE Program (http://www.globe.gov) is taking this opportunity to salute teachers everywhere----for all of the things you do----for inspiring your students and cultivating the love of learning. Teachers are the backbone of our educational system. They encourage, inspire and challenge us to reach new heights and dream without boundaries. The GLOBE Program Office in Boulder, Colorado produced this video for teachers everywhere. We encourage you to watch it, send it to your fellow (or favorite) teachers, school administrators, friends and family members. Encourage them to share it with their network as well so that everyone may pause for a moment and truly appreciate the teachers who made a difference in their lives.

Saving the Sports Complex Algebra Project - 1 views

  •  
    An algebra project focusing on a theme which interests students is more likely to engage them in the project, so lets take a look at sports. Many students participate in sports at some level, whether as part of a school team or a community team. For the most part these same students do not understand the costs involved to host the sport. Also, they do not understand how much money is needed to ensure a profitable season so the sport can continue from year to year.

Revealed: new teaching methods that are producing dramatic results - Telegraph - 1 views

  • According to studies carried out at the National Institute for Child Health and Development in the United States, connections between developing brain cells form most effectively when the brain is given regular breaks, hence the spaces between lessons are every bit as crucial as the content of the lessons themselves;
  • the teacher gives a quickfire Powerpoint presentation, of about three slides a minute, and the pupils listen and read the screen, effectively taking in the information twice. After a gap, the same presentation is run, but there are missing spaces where the children have to fill in the missing words and repeat them aloud, which keeps their minds active and thinking. At this point they can also ask questions. After a second break, a similar presentation takes place.
  • Theoretically you could do half the year's syllabus in a couple of hours, leaving you with lots of time to do the exciting, practical stuff. But whether it would work for every single pupil in every single subject, I don't know

  • In some ways, spaced learning is simply a modern twist on a very old-fashioned approach, that of rote learning.
  • Kids have higher expectations these days and they can multi-task and access new technology to a degree – and at a speed – that adults can only dream of, so if education is to remain relevant to them, we have to adapt, whether we like it or not.'
  • Over the past five years we've moved from an education system of very tightly regulated structure, curriculum and assessment to one where there's more freedom around the curriculum and much more freedom in the way schools organise themselves
  • In the classroom, pupils need continuity, not constant change and adoption of new fads. There's no substitute for an inspiring teacher passionate about their subject giving a well-planned lesson.'
  • Every child at the school has had some spaced learning lessons. The information that is compressed deals not only with key facts, but also with the fundamental principles of the subject, such as mathematical formulae, and gives examples of how to apply these. Some subjects, such as English, are harder to compress, but it can be done.
  • I find this new way of learning far more interesting than sitting with a textbook, and after every lesson I feel I've really learnt something, and I do remember it for a long time afterwards, too.'
  • Theoretically you could do half the year's syllabus in a couple of hours, leaving you with lots of time to do the exciting, practical stuff. But whether it would work for every single pupil in every single subject, I don't know,'

      but surely this is crucial?
  • But the kids are on board and we're seeing the results. I suppose the thing that finally convinced me that we were on to something was when I sat in on one of our lessons and afterwards I discovered I knew chapter and verse on hormones – and had still retained the information months later.'
  • Rowena Coxon, a parent with two children at the school, Jenny, 16, and 14-year-old Elanor, admits that she had her doubts about spaced learning. 'I was sceptical at first, because it seemed to me that the students were spending a lot of time not actually learning, but what I found most striking was how much my daughters enjoyed it – far more than conventional cramming.
  • At Leasowes Community College in Dudley, outside Birmingham, the absolute antithesis of the eight-minute lesson is being hailed as the way forward. Here, classes can last up to five or six days. Students are immersed in a single subject, allowing them to complete practice, theory and coursework in a single block, and – so the theory goes – gain a deeper, more fundamental understanding of the topic. The corridors of this 1,200-roll school are papered with signs bearing stirring mottos such as success is a journey, not a destination, and Albert Camus's dictum you cannot create experience, you must undergo it.
  • 'We are combining the traditional with the innovative; we still teach languages, which is becoming increasingly rare, but we also recognise that part of our job is to prepare children to be successful in the world, so our aspirations are higher than getting them to pass a few exams. The sort of personal development we seek to promote doesn't fit into the culture of rigid one-hour lessons.'

      as practised in waldorf schools for decades.
  • In the classroom, pupils need continuity, not constant change and adoption of new fads. There's no substitute for an inspiring teacher passionate about their subject giving a well-planned lesson.'
  • 'We have no bells here because they create a herd mentality. We want to foster personal responsibility; students can go to the loo when they want or fetch themselves a drink of water without asking permission. The teachers give them a break when they feel the kids need one.'
  • Traditionalists, brought up in the never-did-me-any-harm system of obedience – verging on obeisance – towards authority may find the modern vogue for individualism wholly at odds with their own school experience. Yet personal development has become the new clarion call across all areas of secondary education. Whether that can be achieved in tandem with outstanding exam results remains to be seen.

    most crucial aspect seems to me revisiting students and testing recall after a long period. Also, does this only apply to "fact learning", or does this also engage critical faculty?
