Unlocking Learning Mastery | Edutopia - 8 views

  •  
    Gamification is one response. By embedding diverse achievements into activities and assessments, learning progress can be refracted infinitely. These systems would be able to more flexibly respond to unique learner pathways and abilities, and would further serve as encouragement mechanics -- instead of one carrot stick, there are hundreds. And not just carrots, but every fruit and vegetable imaginable.

You can even promote world peace by connecting with teachers and students in their classrooms worldwide and learning more about each other's country and culture The tools for your use include the ability to have live video chat, make PowerPoint presentations, stream video, share your desktop, record and share your presentation, and much more. Guests do not have to download any software. They simply click on the link to your conference that you send them, no cost, no travel and better yet, no wasted time. This tool is affordable and easily fits into a classroom, school or administartive office budget. As a former superintendent in the education system with more than 50 schools spread out 400 miles along a major highway, the ability to communicate with everyone in an efficient, effective and economical manner was essential. Hope you find this helpful. Best wishes, Barry

David Truss :: Pair-a-dimes for Your Thoughts » Shifting Attitudes - 1 views

  • To the shifted: You have an obligation to serve others.”
  • The shift is happening now and if we aren’t shifting the learning experience for students then what kind of education are we giving them?”
  • The needs are different, but some of the scaffolding and support we offer one of these groups can also be helpful to the other.
    • Suzie Nestico
       
      Very important to remember scaffolding.  This can make or break the engagement cycle with students.
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • However, I think that as leaders and as change agents, we are constantly adjusting what we will do as we (also) learn and grow.
  • Attitude can also be a reference to orientation relative to the direction of travel.
  • It isn’t the network or the tool that matters, but rather that we create meaningful connections as part of our learning practice.
  • We have an obligation to shift with it, and to help those that have not shifted, or that are shifting;
  • We have an obligation to our students to look ahead and continue our own learning to support them;
  •  
    The "I Can't!, I Can!, I Will!" when it comes to shifting our learning environments and operating in new spaces.  Great graphics that shows where the "the shifted" can support, inspire and motivate others.
