Teacher Collaboration: When Belief Systems Collide

Teacher Collaboration: When Belief Systems Collide
It's impossible to explore how we can work more effectively together in schools without considering conflict -- an inevitable part of working together. Conflict can be challenging and destructive, or it can lead to a deeper understanding between people, and perhaps higher quality work from a team. There are many reasons why conflict can exist within a school or a team of educators. 6 Belief Systems In his book, Cognitive Coaching, Robert Garmston (with co-author Arthur Costa) identifies six predominant ideologies that influence educators' decision-making: Religious Orthodoxy: This ideology aims to teach the habits and values that will lead to that religion's realization of how life ought to be lived in accordance with that faith. You, Your Principal, and Your Colleagues After reading these descriptions, go back and rank them according to your personal priorities and belief systems. Let me be clear about one thing -- it's not "bad" for a staff to hold different ideological positions. Related:  A classer 15heatherserlsPD

Derrière les dérapages racistes de l’intelligence artificielle de Microsoft, une opération organisée Le Monde.fr | • Mis à jour le | Par William Audureau « Il faut que nous fassions en sorte que tout le monde détourne Tay, des supporteurs de Trump au #GamerGate. » Le tweet est posté le 23 mars à 22 heures par un internaute se présentant comme Brighton E. Whytock, l’un des premiers à avoir exhorté publiquement à détourner l’intelligence artificielle conversationnelle apprenante de Microsoft. Plusieurs heures plus tard, la firme de Redmond a dû désactiver Tay, qui était censée imiter sur Twitter les réponses d’une adolescente, mais s’est finalement retrouvée à faire l’apologie d’Adolf Hitler et du négationnisme, ou à publier des messages au contenu tantôt sexiste, tantôt antisémite ou raciste.

Who Teaches The Teachers? by Simon Oxenham That’s a question now being raised after a major report from the National Council on Teacher Quality found most teacher training textbooks and courses aren’t based in evidence and contain large amounts of myths and misinformation. One researcher is now posing the question – if not textbooks – where do teachers, can teachers, and should teachers get reliable information? The numbers above are clearly heavily skewed at the tech savvy end of the spectrum due to being based on a small opportunity sample obtained from Twitter – obviously this isn’t a scientific study. Traditionally textbooks are widely treated as the pinnacle of evidence and lowly blogs, well... less so. Obviously all blogs were not created equal and there are certainly unreliable blogs out there. There are however a great deal of excellent blogs out there by expert educators, so after consulting with Dr. + Class Teaching – A blog managed by Shaun Allison, Deputy Head of an English high school.

Origine et composition du peuple japonais Le Japon compte à ce jour 126 millions d’habitants. Il y a peu de minorités : essentiellement des coréens (600 000, Nord et Sud) et aussi des chinois de Taiwan. Quant aux origines exactes du peuple japonais, elles demeurent toujours mystérieuses. A commencer par les origines de sa langue, méconnues. Quant aux recherches sur l’origine ethnique du peuple, elles ont été longtemps génées par la doctrine officielle qui prônait l’homogénéité absolue du peuple japonais. On a pensé un temps que les Aïnous étaient la population originelle du Japon. Ainous en habit traditionnel style des constructions Ainous (grenier) En tout cas, il est maintenant établi que les aïnous n’ont jamais été la population originelle et dominante du Japon, comme certaines anciennes thèses laissaient penser qu’ils avaient été décimés par des envahisseurs venus du continent. Le Japon a également connu des apports de nouvelles populations venues du continent, Chine, Corée, Sibérie, Mongolie.

5 Things You Did Not Know About Google Forms - Teacher Tech Google Forms Tips Skip Pages Google Forms allows you to create pages so that all of the questions are not all on one screen. In some circumstances the questions do not apply for every student. Start by creating all of your pages (now called sections in the new Google Forms). For Multiple Choice questions there is an option to “Go to section based on answer.” Next to each multiple choice option, determine which section each answer will direct the student to. Custom Confirmation When students finish filling out a Google Form the default message is “Your response has been recorded.” Pre-Filled Forms If some of the fields of your Google Form are highly likely to have a specific answer or if you reuse your Form it can be handy to pre-select some of the answers in Form. The option to “Get pre-filled link” is located under the more options (3 dots) menu in the upper right of the Google Form. Choosing this option takes you to a screen that appears to be the live screen. Reset Summary of Responses
