Safety-Training-That-Transfers?email=abednego@outlook. Ellis Ritz is one of the cofounders of Meyvn Global, and is currently acting as the director of learning and development.


During his nearly 40 years of mining and training experience, Ellis saw a need for training and consulting on a level that others could better identify with. Ellis is always looking for opportunities to get people more involved, and to make training more enjoyable and remembered. He still does classroom training for trainers, frontline leaders, and safety classes working, and is constantly working toward the day when all training gets a “hooray!”

Rather than an “oh no!” The Reflective Teacher: A Taxonomy of Reflection Part 3. Reflective teacher Reflection can be a challenging endeavor.

The Reflective Teacher: A Taxonomy of Reflection Part 3

It's not something that's fostered in school - typically someone else tells you how you're doing! Teachers are often so caught up in the meeting the demands of the day, that they rarely have the luxury to muse on how things went. Moreover, teaching can be an isolating profession - one that dictates "custodial" time with students over "collaborative" time with peers. In an effort to help schools become more reflective learning environments, I've developed this "Taxonomy of Reflection" - modeled on Bloom's approach. Addressing Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs with Technology. A major criticism I have of most educational institutions is that their primary focus is on students’ intellectual and cognitive development.

Addressing Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Too often individual learner’s needs do not enter into the equation of their educations. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a useful model for educators to use to help insure that they are addressing more of the whole child. Applying Abraham Maslow’s theory of a pyramid-shaped hierarchy — physiological needs, personal safety, social affiliation, self-esteem and self-actualization — to education is an ideal way to assess lesson plans, courses and educational programs. By asking themselves whether these needs are being met in their school or classroom, educators can assess how well they are applying Maslow’s hierarchy to their teaching practice (How to Apply Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs to Education). Hattie-Studie: »beträchtliche inhaltliche und methodische Schwächen« John Hattie admits that half of the Statistics in Visible Learning are wrong. At the researchED conference in September 2013, Professor Robert Coe, Professor of Education at Durham University, said that John Hattie’s book, ‘Visible Learning’, is “riddled with errors”.

But what are some of those errors? The biggest mistake Hattie makes is with the CLE statistic that he uses throughout the book. TeachAde - Free Educational Resources for Educators and Teachers. How to Control a Disruptive Class: The Quick & Easy Method that Saved My Sanity. During my first year teaching middle school students, I found myself in a bit of a dilemma.

When the bell rang, I knew that my class should be orderly and on task. But it simply wasn’t. Untitled. Great School Leadership 4: People. Schools are made of people.

Great School Leadership 4: People

In any school leadership role, there is a good case for saying that success is ultimately all about the people. The ethos, vision and strategy don’t exist in isolation; they exist in reference to the dynamics of the people who make up the organisation. There are lots of dimensions to this all-important people factor: Individual competence and capacity for professional development The dream scenario is to be surrounded by highly competent professionals, who drive themselves to excel in all that they do, make a significant contribution, accept accountability, support the school’s vision and ethos and continually seek to improve their practice. ERIC - Education Resources Information Center. Heutagogy and lifelong learning: A review of heutagogical practice and self-determined learning. Lisa Marie Blaschke Oldenburg University and University of Maryland University College (UMUC) Abstract Heutagogy, a form of self-determined learning with practices and principles rooted in andragogy, has recently resurfaced as a learning approach after a decade of limited attention.

Heutagogy and lifelong learning: A review of heutagogical practice and self-determined learning

In a heutagogical approach to teaching and learning, learners are highly autonomous and self-determined and emphasis is placed on development of learner capacity and capability with the goal of producing learners who are well-prepared for the complexities of today’s workplace. The approach has been proposed as a theory for applying to emerging technologies in distance education and for guiding distance education practice and the ways in which distance educators develop and deliver instruction using newer technologies such as social media. The renewed interest in heutagogy is partially due to the ubiquitousness of Web 2.0, and the affordances provided by the technology. Introduction.

Leading with Intellectual Integrity

By the time people reach the most senior levels of a company, they are expected to have a degree of personal competence and a strong gut feel for making good executive decisions. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be considered for a top job. But how do they attain this acumen? At Procter & Gamble (P&G)—where we (A.G. Lafley and Roger Martin) served as chief executive and one of the senior advisors to the company, respectively—we developed a systematic approach to cultivating that skill among emerging and senior executives.

In our view, leaders would do well to take a more systematic approach to developing their decision-making capabilities. In our work with companies, boards, and government agencies, we see people wrestle with the need to make tough choices—those critical decisions made in service of a relevant strategic goal for which there is no fully satisfactory option and every path seems to demand a trade-off.

Bildungsideale: "Bildung sollte Menschen dazu befähigen, Autoren ihres Lebens zu sein"

Nida-Rümelin: Nein, das ist ein nicht belegter Mythos. Die Personaler in den Unternehmen wissen, worauf sie zu achten haben: Urteilskraft, Hintergrundwissen, Weltgewandtheit, also genau das, was Sie als humanistische Relikte abtun wollen. Es gibt einen enormen Widerspruch zwischen dem, was die Bildungsabteilungen der Industrie- und Handelskammern vor Jahren gefordert haben, nämlich dass Studiengänge und Ausbildungen möglichst schnell, kurz und praxisorientiert sein sollen, und der Einstellungspraxis. A classroom for the 21st century: where are the best places for learning? Since compulsory primary education was introduced nearly 140 years ago, what children learn and the way they learn has changed dramatically.

A classroom for the 21st century: where are the best places for learning?

In modern schools, children are encouraged to be independent learners, to share ideas and to work in small groups. Yet the environment in which most children learn remains the same: a building, divided into classrooms and linked by corridors. Classrooms consist of tables and chairs, usually arranged so that children face a teacher and an interactive whiteboard – the technological equivalent of the Victorian blackboard. What's the best way to teach languages? Alex Rawlings was a language teacher's dream. He fell in love with languages when he was eight and learnt Greek, then German, then Dutch.

Now, an undergraduate at Oxford, he is the UK's most multi-lingual student, speaking 11 languages. So what's his secret? "I remember seeing people on the beach in Greece when I was a kid and not being able to talk to them," says Alex. "I thought it'd be nice to be able to talk to anyone in the world in their language. Such enthusiasm is rare: a report by the British Academy this year found there was a growing deficit in foreign language skills. Spotlight on teaching schools - hofmannalbrecht - Gmail.
