Rating

Too often, high standards and a whole child approach are seen as opposite ends of the education spectrum. In this webinar, Molly McCloskey debunks the myth of standards versus support and shares the relationship between the Common Core State Standards and a school improvement approach that ensures each child, in each school, in each community, is healthy, safe, engaged, supported, and challenged. Going beyond the silos of too many school reform efforts, this webinar will explore integration, collaboration, and comprehensive framing rooted in high expectations for student and staff achievement.

Being a Teacher: Reading 8. Accountability for Professional Practice
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

All professions are required to be accountable in various ways for the quality of the service they render -- to their clients, to the public and to their fellow professionals. In the article from which this excerpt is taken, the writer analyses five forms of accountability that may operate in various institutions in a democratic society. Only two of these forms are applicable to teaching on a regular, day-to-day basis. A third form -- legal accountability -- comes into effect from time to time when a teacher, school, or education department is held to account in a court of law as a result of legal action, perhaps on the part of parents.

CP 35: Promoting Shared Leadership
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

In the EL Education model, leadership is a collaborative, dynamic effort toward a common vision for teaching and learning. Thus, in addition to creating the conditions for all staff to learn, school leaders create the conditions for all staff to lead. Leaders articulate and uphold clear decision-making processes, as well as roles and responsibilities for decisions that impact the learning community. Leaders strategically build the leadership capacity of others; they set up structures for staff and other members of the school community to take responsibility for school improvement efforts and empower these individuals to lead the work. High-functioning, data-informed, impact-oriented teams of educators drive improvement across the school.

Educational psychologists work to understand how to structure educational systems in order to meet the mental and emotional needs of students. They study how people learn, identify and suggest efficient teaching methods, and evaluate the effectiveness of various educational policies and practices. Educational psychologists often point out the inherently social nature of our current educational system, study the ways that learning environments affect education, and study the ways that societal, local, and family issues affect learning and classroom practice. Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to: explain why knowledge of psychology is important to effective teaching; discuss, compare, and contrast cognitive and behavioral psychology; discuss, compare, and contrast constructivist and behaviorist models of teaching and learning, as well as their applications in classroom management; identify important cognitive stages of development, the typical age range of each stage, and the ways that teachers can use that knowledge; identify important aspects of personal, emotional, and moral development, and ways that teachers can use that knowledge; identify diversity in terms of differences in learning styles, intelligence, cultures, and gender, as well as specific abilities and disabilities, that a modern classroom might need to accommodate; discuss theories of motivation and defend those you would use in your classroom; discuss classroom management strategies that smooth the learning process and prevent or deal with misbehavior, and defend those strategies you would use in your classroom; identify communication skills that enhance learning, management, and coordination with students' families; identify strategies for enhancing students' ability to use complex cognitive skills; identify the major parts of a lesson or unit plan; identify and discuss types of teacher-made assessments; discuss the uses of and issues surrounding standardized testing; identify and discuss factors that influence job satisfaction in a teaching career.

You are welcome to this Module in History of Education, which covers part of the course in Professional Education Studies. To understand the meaning of History of education, you need to know the key words, History and Education. Perhaps you are aware that History is a study of past events and developments some of which may have occurred many years of ago or might have taken place in the recent times. On the other hand, education can be defined as a process of teaching and learning. More about this will be examined in the module later. History of education is therefore a study of the past that focuses on educational issues. These include education systems, institutions, theories, themes and other related phenomena.

Examines how new computational tools and activities can help people learn new things in new ways. Discusses theories of learning and education underlying the design and use of these tools, and explores how new tools can change the ways people think about learning and education. Special emphasis on "constructionist" approaches to learning (represented by tools such as StarLogo and programmable LEGO bricks). Final project involves the design and observation of learning activities. As the digital revolution brings with it radical changes in how and what we learn, people must continue to learn all the time. New technologies make possible new approaches to learning, new contexts for learning, new tools to support learning, and new ideas of what can be learned. This course will explore these new opportunities for learning with a special focus on what can be learned through immersive, hands-on activities. Students will participate in (and reflect on) a variety of learning situations, and will use Media Lab technologies to develop new workshops, iteratively run and refine the workshops, and analyze how and what the workshop participants learn.
