Mr Rowland's Physical Education Posterous! - I wouldn't say I was the best teacher in t... - 0 views

  •  
    Example of a teacher posterous blog - instead of teaching them how to blog, just let them use their email!
  •  
    Doug Belshaw is encouraging his teachers to use posterous to communicate to students and parents. Literally, they send an e-mail to posterous and it creates a blog automatically for them. This is an example of a PE teacher.

    Now this is cool. DON'T teach teachers how to blog - use something they already know, email and just have them email it instead. Now how is that for a great idea!

THe Digital Natives Debate: A Critical View of the Evidence - Draft - 0 views

  •  
    The paper presents and questions the main claims made about digital natives
    and analyses the nature of the debate itself. We argue that rather than being empirically and theoretically informed, the debate can be likened to an academic form of a 'moral panic'. We propose that a more measured and disinterested approach is now required to investigate 'digital natives' and their implications for education.

Back to the Classroom: The Forum for Education and Democracy - 0 views

  • sparking students’ intellectual curiosity by encouraging teachers to “teach to their passions”
  • Beacon’s freedom from the state Regents examinations in social studies – the result of a hard-earned waiver – allows for a thematic approach and a deep exploration unconstrained by coverage considerations.  
  • All classes will do extensive writing and revision, developing the skill of using evidence to support conclusions.  The students will engage in debates, make presentations, and have varied avenues to demonstrate what they have learned and accomplished.

  • The chance to “make a difference” in young people’s lives is what makes teaching a calling.  But working in a community of learners that prizes real intellectual development and creativity, and having a level of control over what you can do on a daily basis, is what sustains that calling.

  • Making decisions about students, teachers and schools largely on the basis of standardized test scores ultimately is detrimental to the kind of education all young people need.

      These are the choices we make in the classroom that have lasting impacts on student attitude toward learning.

People remember 10%, 20%...Oh Really? - 0 views

  •  
    People do NOT remember 10% of what they read, 20% of what they see, 30% of what they hear, etc. That information, and similar pronouncements are fraudulent. Moreover, general statements on the effectiveness of learning methods are not credible---learning results depend on too many variables to enable such precision. Unfortunately, this bogus information has been floating around our field for decades, crafted by many different authors and presented in many different configurations, including bastardizations of Dale's Cone. The rest of this article offers more detail.
