Teaching Can Be A Profession 
Joel
Problem                                                                                    

  • Not equipping education candidates in reading instruction  
  • Anyone that has a college degree can be a teacher 
  • Teachers are paid the same regardless of their performance 
Solutions 


  • Provide better academic training 
  • recruit from the top 3rd of graduates 
  • require an entry exam and promotional exams 

teacher


  I agree that there is a problem with allowing anyone that holds a college degree to teach. As an education major ,we learn about certain aspects of teaching that are not taught in most majors. I believe that it takes more than just a degree to teach , rather a passion and knowledge of the field. How would a non-educational major understand how to deal with childhood disorders in some students. There are many factors when working with students that just an ordinary college student would not be equipped for with out prior  preparation.Part of that preparation includes student teaching. Student teaching allows education majors to intern under a teacher and actual hands on field experience.

Mrs. Brofosky is a elementary administrator and I had the privilege of commenting on her blogs . In the first blog that I read and commented on Mrs. Brofosky was explaining how her role had changed from a teacher to an administration. The responsibilities in which she had to take as in administrator increased.  The second blog post was about classrooms and how to make students enthused.

What can we learn about teaching and learning from these teachers?
Back to the Future by .Brian Cosby http://youtu.be/olUn4Si22Sg
Mr. Cosby taught at a rural school where half the students did not know their home phone number. He had to figure what was the disconnect with his students. So, he started engaging his students in project based learning. The project his students created was "The High Hope s  Balloon . Students embedded videos from projects in their blogs and explain what happened. Students wrote stories about taking a trip as if they were the balloon. They also created books in which they on their blogs along with pictures. Students had to set goals for themselves as par t of the High Hopes. Not only for themselves ,but their school and community.
cloud network The students:
  • Read/write to learn - content
  • Connect globally /aware globally
  • Feedback
  • Articulate
The main goal is teaching kids to become learners.
 What are the possibilities ?
  • Connect empower active
  • motivate collaborate
Mr.. Cosby included a young girl in the learning environment that was ill . This proved that PBL is interactive and includes everyone.

C4 K Summary

So today I am going to blog about bus’s. I chose this topic because at my school we don’t have bus. I want buses because some times it is hard for parents to get the kids to school and then get to work. I think that we should have bus because the parents to get to work and not be late. I also think that we should have a bus is because I think that it could reduce the tardy’s we have. Some of the kids who are being late are staying in bed and be lazy all mourning and then when it is time to leave they are running around the house trying to get every thing gathered and they spend 30-minutes trying to get in the car or they left something and they can’t find it.The reason why I want buses is because when I had to catch the bus or I had walk to school my parents trusted me to get up and do what I had to do and catch the bus in time,and i tested our responsibility of the child. That is why we need Bus.Photo of Saf-T-Liner C2 bus Hi Arrick, Your proposal about wanting to have buses at your school is very convincing. You gave great reasons as to why buses would be useful for you as a student and you even included how it would help your parents. Excellent work !!!Continue writing you will go far. My “Abuelita”and my” Grampa wampa”moments. When I was 3 I used to call my grandmother my Grammy Wammy and whatever I did with my Grandma I would always call her Grammy Wammy and she and I always had a gwammy day and that day was when her and I would go and have a lemonade stand ,go shopping,have a tag sale,donate money to hospitals and as I got older I realized that those times were the best times of my life.On the other hand, I used to call my grandfather grampa wampa and we also had a special day together and every Monday,Wednesday and Fridays we would always go to get ice cream and I still remembe that I used to get 4 scoops of chocolate and 1 extra scoop of vanilla and as I got older I also realized that those were the best moments of my life and I wish I can Drink from the Fountain Of Youth to go back and have those good moments again!

Project Based Learning

Seven Essentials for Project Based Learning
Pbl
PBL
There are two criteria that projects should meet
              1.Students must perceive work
              2.fulfills educational purpose
1.A Need to Know
Teachers can present students with an issue around them and allow students to discuss the situation. This will launch a project with a entry event that will initiate questions. The goal is to motivate students thoughts and opinions which will lead to a driving question.
2. A Driving Question
The driving question is the motivation behind a project. The question should give students a sense of purpose and challenge It should be an open-ended question and geared towards what students will learn. The driving question is the main point and will provide students with understanding about a particular subject area.
3. Student Voice & Choice
The more students voice their opinions and have power of choice the better their understanding will be. Students can choose topics and driving questions for their projects.
4. 21st Century Skills
Collaboration is a skill that is needed for project based learning. Role playing and tea building activities provide ways of exercising communication skills. A teacher in a project based learning environment assesses these skill.
5. Inquiry and Innovation
As students conduct their research  more questions arise . Hence, this means that students are learning and finding meaning within the project
6. Feedback and Revision
Students can submit rough drafts and collaborate with peers to revise their projects. By doing this students will receive feedback from their peers. Also, teachers can create rubrics to provide useful feedback for the student.
7. A Publicly Presented Product
Students will present their projects to an audience. The audience can consist of parents ,peers etc..

Project Based Learning for Teacher
Are you tired of busy work?
Playing school ?
Project Based Learning has students working over an extended time answering a driving question. The question is deep and requires students to complete an end product to share their learning with others.
Common Core State Standards are the what .....
  • Rigrous content
  • aligned with college and work expectations
  • clear and understandable
  • application of knowledge
  • evidence based
Project Based Learning is the How...
  • Inquirng based
  • open ended
  • problem solving
  • personalized
While meeting standards and creating a real product students learn
  • collaboration skills
  • communication skills
  • critical thinking skills
  • career and life skills
Think of Project Based Learning as
  • Questioning
  • Investigating
  • Sharing
  • Reflecting
Technology plays a role:
  • Powerpoint
  • Glogster
  • Meeting works
  • Record Mp3 
  • Zooburts
  • popplet
  • Edmodo
  • Prezi
  • Google Docs
  • Pic collage
  • Blabberize
  • Educreations
  • QRcodes
  • Skype
  • Schooltube
  • Dropbox
  • Pbworks
  • Rubistar
  • Doing projects vs.Project based learning
Students take charge of  their learning.
Einstein once said " I never teach my pupils. I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn."
Project Based Learrning includes :
  • having a purpose
  • addressing a audience
What Motivates Students today ?http://youtu.be/Ukg6KiBC1CE



Peyton stated that he likes when teachers point out that he did well on test and they announce it that makes him feel good like he accomplished something. He also said it fosters good self esteem for him.


Emily- What motivated Emily is her drive to succeed in life and being able to live comfortably. She also mentioned how she wants to be able to provide for a family one day and that's what drives her to do well in school.
Eshan-"I have to get really good grades to get into college and have a degree. what motivates me is that I will be able to do what I want when I grow up."
Landen-"I do good because I wont be able to attend my baseball games and I would get grounded"

What can we Learn about teaching and learning Randy Pausch's ?
Dream

Randy Pausch lectured about making his dreams and others dream come true. Some of his childhood dreams that he never imagined would come true became a reality for him.  Randy said that you need to be specific with your dreams. When screwing up and no one says anything to you anymore that means they gave up. Sometimes you have to head fake children and that means they should learn more from extracurricular activities than what is expected. Brick walls are there for a reason not to keep us out but to sow how badly we want things. So, one of his driving questions was "How can I enable childhood dreams of others?" Just by being there for the student and guiding them can help enable their dreams. While trying to accomplish things expect arrows in your back. The best way to teach someone something is to make them think they are learning something else. The best way to teach students is having fun while learning something hard. Overall, this video was a funny and informative, Randy showed just how learning should take place.http://youtu.be/ji5_MqicxSo
How to get people to help you ......
1. You can't get there alone
2.Tell the truth
3. Be Earnest
4.Apologize when you screw up
5.Focus on others not yourself

Joseph McCaleb  is a teacher and his blog pen name is Doc Horse ,I enjoyed reading his informative blogs.
My Response
Mr. McCaleb, Your post inspired me. When you stated that we often don't use the sense we were born with I agree that many of us don't use our God given brain. As a student, I am very lazy sometimes ,but often I am very much capable of completing tasks at hand. Your example story was a great analogy.

  Joseph McCaleb Response : Thanks, Mia. I wish you were with our class when we did the Buried Treasure story about a person who is called Lazy. At first it doesn't make much sense; but when we work with it, we see how some important qualities may be slow developing and need to be handled with care if they are to progress through "not-yet-sense" and on into special meaningfulness.

My Response:

Once again Mr.McCaleb your skillful writing has convicted me. I have been one of those worn out students by the 7th week of school I want to cry my eyes out because of the constant tests and essays. The constant distractions like football games and fall break makes me loose site of my educational goals.But as you stated in your post just hold your horses.dochorsetales

    What did you learn from these conversations with Anthony Capps?

    Project Based Learning Part 1
    The driving question in this video "How do you approach project based learning?" Project based learning according to Anthony is not a means to show students that they achieved something. There were a couple of goals that were introduced as part of Project Based Learning.
    1. The goal of a good project is one that has an authentic audience
    2. Student interest
    3. relate projects to the community
    4. projects should be driven by content
    Example project that Anthony used :
    A political story that women were allowed to work or serve in open combat. This project would meet reading, writing and history ACCRS requirements. The students were required to use background information to support their claim. Based off the information that the students found they wrote a letter to their congresswoman. The students critiqued eight and choose the best letters to send.
    Project Based Learning Part 2
    Example 2 The students in Anthony Capps class were studying culture. They wrote a narrative script as if they were a child in Afghanistan by recording a narration on IMovie. Some students focused on food, warfare, religion and some did a blend of all the topics. In the midst a problem arose where one child's father had served in Iraq and felt offended by the students taught about cultures as the one being focused on. So that student worked on a science project as an alternate project. The projects were displayed for parents to see and they were amazed by the projects. PBL will get more than you expect so never limit your students by giving them exactly what you want them to do. The reactions from students :They give valuable feedback and students aren't trapped in worksheets. Reactions from Administration: They accept Anthony's way of teaching and give him reign over his classroom as long as he is meeting ACCRS.
    What is ICURIO?
    ICURIO is an online tool that allows students to safely search websites ,images, videos. It is designed to filter web search engine for students. This search engine requires a login and gives practice on organizing folders and data.

    Discovery Ed

    Tips for Teachers
    As a teacher you have to be interested in learning yourself. You should let your work be fun.
    Flexible-respond to events that come up,start with an end goal be flexible and still achieve the correct outcome. 100% engagement is a goal UseTech Don't Teach it You should not teach technology instead use technology sporadically in projects. Technology is used as a source to learn something. Choose one technology at a time to focus on. The benefits of technology based learning students can express themselves.

    PLN's What are they? How can they help me as a teacher?
    Personal Learning Networks
    According to Webster a personal learning network is an informal learning network that consists of the people a learner interacts with and derives knowledge from in a personal learning environment. PLN's are used to group people together so new ideas and creations are developed. There are many different types of PLN's they are used in different types of environments. They main goal of Pln is to help others expound on ideas. Social media sites such as twitter, blogs and Facebook can be considered as Pln's. I believe that pln's can help me as teacher by allowing me to collaborate with other teachers on how they instruct. Whenever I find myself in a difficult spot the Pln's can be a great resource for advice. Personal learning Networks

    Asking Questions: What questions do we ask? How do we ask?

    The Right Way to Ask Questions in the Classroom by. Ben Johnson
    Ben Johnson discusses in his article how sometimes teachers are viewed as being knowledgeable and the source for every answer. So, when teachers ask students questions on the very subject in which they should be knowledge it comes off confusing. The real reasons why teachers ask students questions is to verify that the students grasped the concepts given in the lesson. Most teachers ask "are there any questions " and move on to the next objective, but do teachers really want students to be brave and ask questions? The purpose of questioning students is to enhance their learning and stimulate the thinking process.Students raising their hands
    Asking Questions to Improve Learning
    This article was a helpful step by step approach of how teachers should create an active learning environment by asking questions. It gives strategies on how to ask questions and how to respond to questions asked by students. The main purpose of question sessions is to develop students thinking skills and asses what they have learned. Sometimes questions are more important than answers

    How Can You Provide Meaningful Feedback to Your Peers?
    I loved Page Ellis's blog on how she explained she had trouble conveying to her fellow peer that they needed help with their writing skills. She states that she cared about the individuals feelings and she even discussed her plan of action with Dr. Strange. The Peer editing video was informative and gave great insight on how to address your peers and it even included definitions ,which was helpful. The main idea was cooperative learning never put individuals down ,but give positive helpful feedback to individuals. The fun interactive video Writing peer review was a cute video that appeals more to a younger crowd ,had the same message as the other Blogs and video. The video actually dramatized what students say to each other when critiquing each other. All in all I learned a great deal from the videos and blog.

    Mr. Dancealo
    1)What is the central message of this video.
    The central Message of this video is that in order to teach or instruct an individual you need to be engaging and hands on.
    2)How does the author make the case for this conclusion
    The author makes his case by showing the students actions (bored, sleeping, and lost). In the end the students were uncertain on how to perform for the final because of lack of demonstrations and participation.
    3) Do you agree with his conclusion? Why or why not?
    I agree with the author’s conclusion. There a many different types of learners and as a teacher you have to teach based off of your students. Students will not grasp concepts if there appears to be a lack of interactive learning. As a student, it gets boring just listening to someone spit out words, but participation helps retain knowledge.
    Teaching in the 21st Century by. Kevin Roberts
    What does Roberts think it means to teach in the 21st Century? Create an outline of the argument made by Roberts, including the evidence and arguments made to support his thesis. How do you feel about the way Roberts sees teaching changing?
    I feel like Roberts is correct about the way teaching is evolving over time. I do believe that teachers will have to start adapting to the new innovative technologies around them. If Roberts is correct, how will it affect you as an educator?
    As an educator I will be expected to use technology in every expect of teaching.
    Thesis: Teachers are no longer the main source of knowledge
    A. Where are students grasping their information from?
      1. Cell phones
      2. Google
      3. Wikipedia
    B. Do students know how to use technology?
      1. Plagiarism
      2. Copyrighting
      3. Pirating
    C. More focus on engaging
      1. Solving problems
      2. Creativity of the participant
      3. fun and interactive

    Technology will not replace teachers
    The Networked Student by. Wendy Drexler
    The Movie the Networked student was a very informative movie; because I had no clue as to what connectivism was. It sheds light on the whole focus of how networking is essential for higher learning, by combining your thoughts with others you open up a world of research. All though the networking process seemed as though it would eliminate a teacher it doesn’t it actually gives a teacher more grounds for instruction. All in all, this clip was very informative and gave me insight on how networking can be applied to the classroom.
    Harness Your Students’ Digital Smarts by. Vicki Davis
    What is the thesis of Davis’ video. What is your reaction to her argument?
    Using media in the classroom is how students are learning by collaborating with others and being open learners. I am in awe of how internet learning can expand worldwide and not just be contained in the classroom.
    Who is ahead in the race?
    If I had to answer this question based off of Dr. Strange’s research I would say that Elementary students are ahead in the race. It is my belief that Dr. Strange should have broaden his research and studied other institutions of higher learning because his results do not give a clear representation. In my opinion college students and graduates are for more technologically advanced than elementary students.
    Flipping The Classroom
    Is flipping a classroom new to you? Do you think this approach will be useful to you as a teacher? Why or why not?
    Flipping a classroom is a new program to me.I believe that this approach will be benefical to me as a teacher because as stated before there are many different types of learners in a classroom and this approach will reach various types of learners.

    What are the things (if any) you have heard about EDM310?
    I have heard that EDM 310 is a challenging .Past students have told me that you have to be organized and computer savvy.

    What fears (if any) do you have about EDM310?
    I fear getting behind or failing this course.

    Compare and contrast EDM310 with other courses you have taken in college or high school.
    Compared to my Statistics class at South which is web blended this course takes more time and focus than Stats 210 and that is a math class.EDM 310 is similar to stats because it is web blended and Dr. Strange uses team USA just like my stats 210 course. Team USA consists of group work and individual based work.

    What do you think will be the most difficult thing for you in EDM310?
    I think the most difficult thing for me in EDM 310 will be staying on top of things.

    What is the best way for you to address this “most difficult” aspect of EDM310?
    The best way for me to address this issue is to stay ahead.

    What questions do you still have about EDM310? What ideas do you have about how to address those questions?
    I don’t have any questions.
