Many students around the world(and their families) get into big debt or have to work over sixty hours a week in order to afford an education. Two-thirds of the US college seniors who graduated in 2011 had student loan debt, with an average of over 27 000 USD per person. Reading those statistics I can’t stop thinking about those words from over 30 years ago: With mass education, it turned out that most people could be taught to read and write. In the same way, once we have computer outlets in every home, each of them hooked up to enormous libraries, where you can ask any question and be given answers, you can look up something you’re interested in knowing, however silly it might seem to someone else. – Isaac Asiov.

Blended Learning. Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos. Last week, I read an interesting blog post by Shelley Blake-Plock titled “The Problem with TED ed.”

Flipped Classroom: Beyond the Videos

It got me thinking about the flipped classroom model and how it is being defined. As a blended learning enthusiast, I have played with the flipped classroom model, seen presentations by inspiring educators who flip their classrooms, and even have a chapter dedicated to this topic in my book. However, I am disheartened to hear so many people describe the flipped classroom as a model where teachers must record videos or podcasts for students to view at home. There are many teachers who do not want to record videos either because they don’t have the necessary skills or equipment, their classes don’t include a lot of lecture that can be captured in recordings, or they are camera shy.

Too often the conversation surrounding the flipped classroom focuses on the videos- creating them, hosting them, and assessing student understanding of the content via simple questions or summary assignments. 1. 2.

“Teachers as Makers” – O’Reilly Radar « el/ed/tech

Teachers as Makers - O'Reilly Radar "When I began talking with folks from the National Writing Project last year, we hit on the idea that getting teachers to see themselves as makers was a great way to encourage making in schools. Thus, the goal of this workshop was to provide a gentle introduction to making for about 50 teachers. 21st Century Learning and Skills. TIPS. Teaching. Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences. Howard Gardner theorized that there are multiple intelligences, and that we all use one or two for the most effective learning. Our culture teaches, tests, reinforces and rewards primarily two kinds of intelligence: verbal/linguistic and logical/mathematical. His theory proposes that there are at least eight other kinds of intelligence that are equally important.

They are “languages” that most people speak, and that cut through cultural, educational, and ability differences. The mind is not comprised of a single representation or a single language of representations. Rather, we harbor numerous internal representations in our minds. Verbal Linguistic intelligence (sensitive to the meaning and order of words as in a poet): Use activities that involve hearing, listening, impromptu or formal speaking, tongue twisters, humor, oral or silent reading, documentation, creative writing, spelling, journal, poetry. Teacher as Facilitator. Teacher As Facilitator Theresa London Cooper Teachers, especially new teachers, so desperately want their students to learn that they often end up doing most of the work. The truth is we must see ourselves as facilitators of learning who possess knowledge, not as the keepers of knowledge.
