Tailoring a Tapestry of Talent

Students today enjoy the connectedness of social networking; it is part of their very being. My goal is to bring my instruction into that cloud to teach the content required in ways that inspire online responsibility and ethics in this new, very public world.

With the interactive, choice-filled technology, students words and videos flow in on-the-spot thinking. Creating concise and creative texts and images requires careful composition. Kids today will become adept at such fluid forays in online thinking, writing, and imaging. They will demand of us the opportunity to learn in such an environment; they want the choices and options. Part of our responsibility is to provide a grounding of their connectivity as they weave their strengths and talents in their choices and networks. We help them connect the millions of dots into a bigger picture, and they will lead us as well.

Thanks for your thoughtful comment. It seems to me that we may be asking the wrong question. Rather than asking how to educate some students well perhaps we should be asking how to educate all students well. Suspect that seeking an answer to the later question will lead our practice in a profoundly different direction and ICT would be a much more essential element of that practice.

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More

A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom.
