SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Professional development is learning to earn or maintain professional credentials such as academic degrees to formal coursework, conferences and informal learning opportunities situated in practice. It has been described as intensive and collaborative, ideally incorporating an evaluative stage. There are a variety of approaches to professional development, including consultation, coaching, communities of practice, lesson study, mentoring, reflective supervision and technical assistance. The University of Management and Technology notes the use of the phrase "professional development" from 1857 onwards. In the training of school staff in the United States, "he need for professional development came to the forefront in the 1960's". A wide variety of people, such as teachers, military officers and non-commissioned officers, health care professionals, lawyers, accountants and engineers engage in professional development. Individuals may participate in professional development because of an interest in lifelong learning, a sense of moral obligation, to maintain and improve professional competence, to enhance career progression, to keep abreast of new technology and practices, or to comply with professional regulatory requirements. Many American states have professional development requirements for school teachers. For example, Arkansas teachers must complete 60 hours of documented professional development activities annually. Professional development credits are named differently from state to state. For example, teachers: in Indiana are required to earn 90 Continuing Renewal Units (CRUs) per year; in Massachusetts, teachers need 150 Professional Development Points (PDPs); and in Georgia, must earn 10 Professional Learning Units (PLUs). American and Canadian nurses, as well as those in the United Kingdom, have to participate in formal and informal professional development (earning Continuing education units, or CEUs) in order to maintain professional registration. In a broad sense, professional development may include formal types of vocational education, typically post-secondary or poly-technical training leading to qualification or credential required to obtain or retain employment. Professional development may also come in the form of pre-service or in-service professional development programs. These programs may be formal, or informal, group or individualized. Individuals may pursue professional development independently, or programs may be offered by human resource departments. Professional development on the job may develop or enhance process skills, sometimes referred to as leadership skills, as well as task skills. Some examples for process skills are 'effectiveness skills', 'team functioning skills', and 'systems thinking skills'. Professional development opportunities can range from a single workshop to a semester-long academic course, to services offered by a medley of different professional development providers and varying widely with respect to the philosophy, content, and format of the learning experiences. Some examples of approaches to professional development include: Case Study Method – The case method is a teaching approach that consists in presenting the students with a case, putting them in the role of a decision maker facing a problem (Hammond 1976) – See Case method. Consultation – to assist an individual or group of individuals to clarify and address immediate concerns by following a systematic problem-solving process. Coaching – to enhance a person’s competencies in a specific skill area by providing a process of observation, reflection, and action. Communities of Practice – to improve professional practice by engaging in shared inquiry and learning with people who have a common goal Lesson Study – to solve practical dilemmas related to intervention or instruction through participation with other professionals in systematically examining practice Mentoring – to promote an individual's awareness and refinement of his or her own professional development by providing and recommending structured opportunities for reflection and observation.....

The Gaming of Education
Complete video at: http://fora.tv/2010/11/18/The_Great_Brain_Debate Media commentator Peter Williams argues that gaming can actually help kids learn and engage in their environment more deeply. Williams explains how games as varied as Donkey Kong and Fallout may have shaped his son's education and interests for the better. ----- "The Great Brain Debate" from the Knowledge Cities World Summit in Melbourne asks the question: Do we need to protect our malleable brains from the information overload of our digital world? And, does it mean we're not using them to delve as deeply as we used to? Arguing the affirmative is Professor Susan Greenfield, a British scientist, broadcaster and member of the House of Lords, who's widely praised for her research on Parkinson's and Alzheimer's disease. Opposing her, is a full-time champion of the Web and all things socially networked, Peter Williams, CEO of Deloitte Digital. The battle is refereed by ABC News 24's Michael Rowland. - Australian Broadcasting Corporation Peter Williams is a global thought leader, speaking on innovation, the use of web technologies and social media. A chartered accountant by background, Peter moved into the web space in 1993. Williams is CEO of Deloitte Digital, and Chairman of the Deloitte Innovation council.

Webinar - Creating Thinking Classrooms: Making Learning Visible
ITEN WEBINAR SERIES Critical Thinking Creating Thinking Classrooms: Making Learning Visible Content: Educators are told that they need to foster critical thinking skills in the minds of the students they teach, but teaching students to think critically remains a challenge for many teachers. Teaching often requires teachers to deliver required curriculum content at the expense of strategies that encourage and enable the teaching and learning in their classrooms; teaching for thinking can get sidelined in the process. This webinar blends what we know about learning, thinking and instructional techniques (e.g. referencing the work of H. Lynn Erickson, S. Joel Warrican and Project Zero: Visible Thinking, Harvard Graduate School of Education) that can foster critical dispositions in students and encourage and enable them to make their thinking visible to themselves, their peers and their teachers. When: Friday January 30th, 2015 (Washington DC time). Presenter: Sandra Robinson brings more than 20 years experience in teaching, teacher education and development, teacher professional development and curriculum and instruction – primarily in English and English Education. She has facilitated professional development education for teachers across many countries in the Anglophone Caribbean. These professional development activities have included a focus on critical thinking, teaching Caribbean poetry, critical literacy, literacy and English education. For fifteen years Dr. Robinson taught English at the secondary level and since 2004 has provided teacher education in the area of English Education and instructional methodologies to teachers and teacher educators across the Eastern Caribbean. She has worked with teachers in schools, assessing and observing teachers’ practice; creating teacher professional development activities based on observational needs; and facilitated the provision of hands-on instructional experiences for teachers. She has developed graduate programmes in Language and Literacy Education and undergraduate courses in Language Arts pedagogy, English Education and Literacy. She has also worked with curriculum personnel in Ministries of Education to provide professional education for teachers in Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Grenada, Dominica, Montserrat, St Lucia, St Kitts and Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines and Guyana. She also coordinates the English Education programme in the Eastern Caribbean Joint Board of Teacher Education (Eastern Caribbean JBTE) and has consulted for UNICEF and other agencies. Robinson has authored research reports, book chapters and research articles in English Education, Teacher Education and development and critical thinking for classroom teachers. Audience: Teachers, Ministries of Education, teacher education institutions, teacher organizations, leaders of civil society organizations, and those interested in learning the best strategies for teaching English to Spanish-speaking students. Language: English. Synopsis here: http://bit.ly/1DIcSBM Note: Registration is open to all those who are interested; however, please note that no certificates will be awarded for participation.

The importance of CPD in education
As recent statistics show that teaching applications have dropped by 15%, it begs the question, should the education sector be doing more for learners in CPD? CPD (Continuing Professional Development) has become crucial in many industries today, yet the education sector has been unusually slow to incorporate additional learning for its teachers. While there is some level of teacher training provided by schools, it’s currently falling way short of the mark. To look at why CPD is important within the education sector and how it could help boost teacher applications, read the article in full here: https://www.fenews.co.uk/fevoices/19435-should-the-education-sector-be-doing-more-for-learners-in-cpd-press-release
A Game-based Experiential Approach to Teaching Professional Ethics
Unlike the traditional approach to ethics education that involves reading, writing, and discussing moral reasoning in the abstract, our new pedagogy uses experiential games to position students in situations that require first-hand ethical decision-making. The games allow students to personally explore what factors prevent them from living up to their moral ideals, and what strategies are effective for coordinating groups to address collective-action problems, where personal incentives are at odds with the group’s best interests. Each game consists of complete and independent modules that can be combined to form undergraduate & graduate level courses in sustainability ethics. Furthermore, both the modules and the course are deliverable in a synchronous (or semi-synchronous) fashion at multiple Universities, wherein students at multiple campuses interact on-line through game play. The games can also be played entirely in-class, in blended learning environments (online and in-class), or completely online. This novel multi-campus form of instruction allows students to be mentored by multiple instructors from different disciplines. Also, when played internationally, students are exposed to the inequality of globalization since they engage directly with peers from distant places and experience first-hand whether they are willing to treat them with as much respect as their own classmates, or whether distance discourages moral behavior. To date, three full courses have been delivered at Rochester Institute of Technology and Arizona State University, while modules have been adopted in engineering, environmental science, and business courses at Mesa Community College, Michigan State University, University of Colorado -Boulder, Purdue University, Northeastern University, University of Arizona, University of Puerto Rico – Mayaguez, Dartmouth College, Mountains of the Moon University (Uganda), the Management Development Institute (India) and Desert Vista High School (Phoenix AZ). The project has trained nearly two dozen faculty and a dozen graduate and undergrad students to deliver the modules in two workshops. Moreover, the grant allowed for both student training and professional development, as it funded a four-year PhD dissertation in Sustainability as well as an undergraduate research experience. Dissemination of results is taking place both through traditional modes (several academic conferences, multiple public lectures, workshops, & journal articles) and through digital media, including on-line articles in Slate, The Chronicle of Higher Education, and other web-based media. Experience in several instructional contexts reinforce the hypothesis that the game-based pedagogies move students from passive to active, apathetic to emotionally invested, predictable to surprising, and from narratively closed to experimentally open. We’ve also been surprised at the ability of some groups to behave cooperatively, despite the inherent incentives to act otherwise. We attribute this success to the moral suasion of ethical leaders in our classrooms, and we argue that the importance of our findings extends beyond the classroom by offering potential models of cooperation for addressing real-world resource management challenges. Furthermore, an invention disclosure has been created for the Tragedy of the Commons Game (a.k.a the Pisces Game, which is our most successful and widely used game) that will be the first product of a spin-out company called 'Experiential Sustainability Ethics Training Games, LLC' (XSET Games). The Pisces Game simulates dilemmas where decisions must be made about depletion or preservation of resources held in the public commons, such as the problem of overfishing occurring in Lake Victoria -- the second largest freshwater lake in the world. In the game, players fish from a shared lake and make decisions related to conservation, consumption, capital investment, trading, or other transfers. XSET Games is unveiling a smartphone interface of the game on November 18th, 2013 at the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) Annual Conference in Nashville. Participants are expected to obtain a greater understanding of the human dimensions of sustainability problems, such as diverse values and worldviews, social media skills related to leadership, teamwork, negotiation, and empathy, and (if the classroom experience is any indication) may discover relevant insights into their own or others’ moral character.

Training teachers, trusting teachers, building competence - understanding teacher expertise
"The nature of teacher expertise is a contested area, with no real consensus as to what it consists of". Professor Christopher Winch of King's College London will discuss this issue, with particular reference to the implications for teacher education at this Cambridge Assessment Network seminar. "Three archetypes of teacher expertise seem to be in play in public debates on the issue in England: ~The teacher as craftworker: teachers rely on subject knowledge, experience, character and situational judgment for their effectiveness. The preferred mode of teacher education is apprenticeship under the mentorship of an experienced craft teacher. ~The teacher as executive technician: teachers rely on lesson protocols developed by curriculum and pedagogic specialists and their effectiveness depends on their following these protocols accurately. The preferred mode of teacher education is training in the protocols and practice in their execution. ~The teacher as professional: teachers exercise professional judgement on the basis of subject knowledge, a conceptual framework for thinking about education and teaching and knowledge of empirical research about teaching and learning. The preferred mode of teacher education consists of closely integrated university-based and school-based work. These three archetypes are an idealisation of what teachers should be like. They are rarely found in a pure form in actual schools and classrooms. However, there is confusion in the policy world about what should be the preferred model for England. I will illustrate this confusion in recent policy documents, show the relationships between the different archetypes and make a suggestion for the preferred model for England and the type of teacher education that should accompany it." About the speaker: Christopher Winch is Professor of Educational Philosophy and Policy in the School of Education, Communication and Society at King’s College London. He was head of the School from 2008-2012 and was Chair of the Philosophy of Education Society of Great Britain from 2008-2011. His main interests are in professional education (and in particular the nature of professional know-how and judgement) and in philosophy of education. He is also an experienced empirical researcher and has carried out extensive work on European vocational education and EU policy tools for developing vocational education in Europe. He is an experienced teacher who has worked in further, primary and higher education in England and Wales. He is the author of numerous books and articles. These include: Teachers’ Know-how (2017), Knowledge, Skills and Competence in the European Labour Market (2011) with Linda Clarke, Michaela Brockmann, Georg Hanf and Philippe Mehaut. Dimensions of Expertise (2010) and The Philosophy of Human Learning (1998).

LET Reviewer: Professional Education (Questions 1-25)
LIST OF ADVANTAGES OF AUDITORY LEARNING 1. Allows for Multi-Tasking Proponents of this learning style claim that learning by ear allows an individual to be versatile when it comes to accomplishing several tasks. This is because by merely listening to audio recordings, one can process information without having to use the eyes or hands. That said, a person can do other things while studying. These can be driving, cooking, painting and cleaning, among others. This makes this learning style effective for people who have to engage in other activities during the process. Consequently, more things will be done in a little time. 2. Increased Retention People who advocate for auditory learning posit that a good listener has the ability to process information through hearing information and eventually retains it. By playing audio recordings repeatedly wherever the location may be, there is an increased possibility of improved retention in the memory bank. ****************************************************************************************************** If you like this videos please don't forget to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel for more updates. social group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LETRe... website: https://letreviewer101.wixsite.com/we...

Texas Education Agency Teacher Ethics Training Module 1: Boundaries (Part 2 of 3)
The Texas Education Agency (TEA) takes ethical violations very seriously! To provide educators with a case study on poor ethical choices, the TEA developed four training modules in the style of "The Office" to display extreme behaviors that are not tolerated as an education professional. The videos tell a story and should be watched in sequential order to see the progression and development of the storyline, and how the consequences of making poor choices including loss of teaching credentials, and in some instances cause jail time for offenses.

LET Reviewer 2019: Professional Education | CURRICULUM DEVELOPMENT Part 1
LIST OF ADVANTAGES OF AUDITORY LEARNING 1. Allows for Multi-Tasking Proponents of this learning style claim that learning by ear allows an individual to be versatile when it comes to accomplishing several tasks. This is because by merely listening to audio recordings, one can process information without having to use the eyes or hands. That said, a person can do other things while studying. These can be driving, cooking, painting and cleaning, among others. This makes this learning style effective for people who have to engage in other activities during the process. Consequently, more things will be done in a little time. 2. Increased Retention People who advocate for auditory learning posit that a good listener has the ability to process information through hearing information and eventually retains it. By playing audio recordings repeatedly wherever the location may be, there is an increased possibility of improved retention in the memory bank. ****************************************************************************************************** If you like this videos please don't forget to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel for more updates. social group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LETRe... website: https://letreviewer101.wixsite.com/we...

How Schools Can Accomplish More by Doing Less - Mike Schmoker
In this presentation from Education Week's Leaders To Learn From event, school leaders heard from Mike Schmoker, author of Leading With Focus. Schmoker shared insights on precisely where schools should focus their precious time and resources to ensure that all students are prepared for the demands of college, careers, and citizenship. Schmoker shared his three essential elements of good schooling, and how to implement them on a clear, straightforward model. The three elements are: • Coherent curriculum • Authentic literacy • Soundly structured lessons Despite their unrivaled power for improving performance in any school, these elements continue to be misunderstood—and grossly under-implemented, says Schmoker.

"Technology and Mathematics Education: Issues and Challenges", by Jonaki Ghosh
A talk by Jonaki Ghosh, Assistant Professor, Lady Sri Ram College at Azim Premji University September 21, 2012 About the Topic Mathematics has for years been the common language for classification, representation and analysis. Learning mathematics forms an integral part of a child's education. Yet, it is also the subject, which has traditionally been perceived as difficult. The primary reason for this state of mathematics learning today is the significant gap between content and pedagogy. However Mathematics education all over the world has witnessed a shift of paradigm because of the advent of powerful technological tools such as computer algebra systems (CAS), dynamic geometry software (DGS) and handheld technology in the form of scientific as well as graphic calculators. The talk will focus on the pedagogical affordances of these tools in the teaching and learning of mathematics specifically at the secondary and senior secondary school level. The goals of school mathematics education as envisaged by the National Curriculum Framework 2005, the prominent learning theories such as the constructivist approach and the challenges of school mathematics education will form the backdrop for the talk. It will highlight how the use of appropriate technology can bring about a shift from content of mathematics to the processes of learning mathematics such as estimation, approximation, visualization, reasoning and problem solving. Examples from studies conducted by the speaker will demonstrate how technology enabled explorations and the inclusion mathematical modeling activities can help to deemphasize rote memorization of procedures, computational algorithms and paper-pencil-drills which dominate the traditional approach of mathematics teaching in most schools today. The talk will further elaborate, through these examples, on how technology can provide students access to higher level mathematics, reduce cognitive load, serve as a scaffolding tool, encourage multi-representational understanding of concepts and help students to form and test conjectures. In some of the studies described by the speaker, CAS (Mathematica), DGS (Geogebra), spreadsheets (Ms Excel) or graphics calculators were used as the primary vehicles for explorations by students either in the classroom or in a mathematics laboratory. In most cases, the use of technology led to deeper insight into concepts and provided a rich and motivating environment for exploring mathematics. The talk ends with a discussion on some of the challenges related to the integration of these technology tools in the school curriculum in terms of assessment and large scale teacher preparation. The speaker concludes by suggesting that the considered use of appropriate technology can help to restore the balance between the need for computational skills and the need for experiencing processes such as exploration and conjecture. About the Speaker Jonaki Ghosh is an Assistant Professor in the Dept. of Elementary Education, Lady Sri Ram College, University of Delhi where she teaches courses related to mathematics education. She obtained her Ph. D. in Applied Mathematics from Jamia Milia Islamia University, New Delhi and Masters in Mathematics from Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur.

Omashani Naidoo on "Teacher Professional Development- A South African Perspective"
Teacher Professional Development- A South African Perspective There are a plethora of “solutions” within the ICT Integration for teaching and learning space. These ‘solutions” are often not actual solutions but more revenue generating avenues for suppliers who perceive education challenges as a means to an end. We have seen tablet technologies far surpass their ICT predecessors with implementation into the schooling sector. We have seen a dearth of creative educational tools and, where connectivity/ wi-fi is not a barrier, they can give instant access to a wealth of resources. There is much publicity around the potential of tablets to transform learning and yet little consideration has been given to the technical and logistical implications, let alone the implications for teaching and learning. Where schools have the luxury of good connectivity/wi-fi they have the prospect of any time anywhere learning contributing to the emergence of the notions of flipped classrooms, BYOD and increased parent involvement. In some cases placing technology in the hands of the learner and it being so mobile has precipitated a rapid move to less teacher-centric methodology and the dawn of learners embracing the opportunities to study beyond school time. There is increasingly a preference to focus on the effective use of more productivity-related tools such as email, social media, photos, and collaboration software that promote creativity and a spirit of enquiry as opposed to being locked into sedimentary teaching methods. Coupled with creativity is the need to develop skills in teachers to maximise the use of teaching strategies that incorporate 21st century learning tools. This presentation does not profess to contribute towards any academic discourse on learning but does provide anecdotal evidence of experiences of schools and teachers in their implementation of ICT projects and gives insight into perceptions of teachers and learners in classrooms in South Africa. This presentation outlines SchoolNet's experiences in these projects and attempts to provide anecdotal evidence that might assist schools to make informed purchasing as well as staff development decisions. We therefore attempt to identify some of the critical implications of ICTs on teaching and learning while outlining our experiences with the technical and logistical issues that we have faced.
