Let’s take a look at the nebulous idea of the “classroom of the future.” Below are some ideas that are truly transformational–not that they haven’t been said before. And the best part? But therein lies the rub: Tomorrow’s learning is already available, and below are 7 of the most compelling and powerful trends, concepts, and resources that represent its promise. The Challenge of Implementation It’s challenging enough to manage a traditional learning environment where the curriculum is handed to you, and meetings are set, and you’re simply there to manage; adding more ingredients to the mix seems like asking for trouble.

How To Create A Test That Grades Itself Using Google Forms How To Create Self Grading Assessments With Google Forms Google Forms isn’t the first thing you think of when you think of assessment. It’s not especially elegant, it won’t wow students, and the learning curve isn’t as mild as it might be.

While many teachers express frustration over high-stakes accountability standards, they acknowledge pressure to “teach to the test,” fearing non-proficient scores, dissatisfaction from school administrators, and in smaller systems, the potential risk of embarrassment when scores are made public. Differentiation as effective instruction By contrast, the practice of differentiating instruction helps teachers address rigorous standards while responding to the individual needs of students.

Doktoritöö: kuidas õpetada arusaamisega lugemist? | Novaator | ERR Üldhariduskoolide riiklikus õppekavas tasuks uuesti läbi vaadata kogu funktsionaalse lugemisoskuse probleemistik, leiab hiljuti Tartu ülikoolis doktoritööd kaitsnud klassiõpetaja Pilve Kängsepp. Kängseppa doktoritööst kirjutab Tartu ülikooli ajakirjas Universitas Tartuensis Mart Zirnask. "Vanal ja hallil ajal kandsid inimesed jutte oma mälus ja jutustasid neid üksteisele. Miks on selle loo pealkiri "Sõnade püüdmine"? 568 õpilast seitsme Lõuna-Eesti kooli 4. ja 7. klassist pusisid aastatel 2007–2008 katse- või kontrollisikutena kahe tekstiga: lihtsam "Sõnade püüdmine" ja keerulisem "Putukate elust maal". Hiljuti Tartu ülikooli haridusteaduste instituudis doktoritööd kaitsnud Kängsepp uuris, kui tõhusad on koolitöös nn järelduslikud küsimused: teksti puudutavad küsimused, mida esitati kas pärast lugemist või lugemise käigus, lõikude järel. Vanus loeb Arusaamisega lugemine on mitmetasandiline protsess, mille kohta on välja pakutud hulk mudeleid. Eesti keele tunde napib Kukeaabits.
