Strategies K-12 Teachers Can Use to Work Efficiently When Teaching Online Teaching in a hybrid in-person/remote model requires significantly more planning than teaching in the traditional classroom model.

15 Characteristics of a 21st-Century Teacher Recent technological advances have affected many areas of our lives, including the way we communicate, collaborate, learn, and, of course, teach. Those advances necessitate an expansion of our vocabulary, producing definitions such as digital natives, digital immigrants, and the topic of this post—21st-century teacher.

Changing 20th to 21st brings different results: a 21st-century school, 21st-century education, 21st-century teacher, 21st-century skills.

Since my last set of predictions for 2019, schools have made significant strides in launching initiatives that are strategically focused on student and teacher learning. Schools are seeing themselves more as communities of learning for everyone rather than just a place students go to learn.

Teaching Growth Mindset in the Secondary Classroom - The SuperHERO Teacher Skip to content Menu Teaching Growth Mindset in the Secondary Classroom We’re all familiar with the importance of growth mindset, but often times we see growth mindset being taught at the lower levels as opposed to middle and high school classrooms.

How To Support Mental Health in the Classroom Year after year, the students arriving in my classroom are exhibiting more signs of mental health problems. From anxiety to depression to anger, I've seen it all and over the years have developed some great ways to support mental health in the classroom.

In Primary 1 and in Primary 6 we have been comparing fixed and growth mindsets. This is something we believe is a fundamental part of developing a positive classroom ethos which is crucial at this stage in the term and throughout the year. In Primary 1, we have been studying the book “Ish” which is about a boy who’s belief in his ability to draw is dampened and enhanced by his brother and his sister respectively. After reading the story of “Ish”, we talked about how it feels to have a fixed mindset and how it feels to have a growth mindset.
