For ESPs, Being the Best for Students Requires Continuous Learning – Education Article

Andrea Beeman (left), Matthew Powell, and Kimberly Scott-Hayden have helped implement the ESP Professional Growth Continuum.(PHOTO: Andrea Kane) It’s common knowledge amongst educators that professional development for education support professionals (ESPs) is largely non-existent or irrelevant, if offered at all.

LEGO Education Launches New SPIKE Prime System and New LEGO League Sets · The TeacherCast Educational Network – Education Article

This week, I had the opportunity to sit down with my 5-year-old triplets, dump out a bucket of LEGO and explore with them the world of imagination.  As a youngster, I loved taking a trip with my imagination and building anything that I wanted to with my LEGO sets. As a father, I am totally in love with the fact that my own children have picked up that same love of creativity and to see them light up whenever they…

Outdoor Education – STORIES FROM SCHOOL AZ – Education Article

Over a decade ago when I started teaching sixth grade one of my first questions were about the school’s science camp program.  I was teaching in the same district I had attended as a sixth grader and remembered the major event science camp was.

Going Beyond One-Size-Fits-All Online Discussion Questions with Flipgrid and Classroom – Education Article

Online discussion questions have been around since the dawn of online learning; however, is this an effective one-size-fits-all approach to learning? Brain science is revealing that variability is the rule and not the exception. If variability is the rule, then why do we expect our students to have online discussions the same way?

More than 49,000 pupils ‘disappeared’ from schools – study | Education

An investigation into the true scale of “off-rolling” from schools in England has found that more than 49,000 pupils from a single cohort disappeared from the school rolls without explanation. Researchers from the Education Policy Institute (EPI) said that one in 12 pupils (8.1%) from the national cohort who began secondary school in 2012 and finished in 2017 were removed from rolls at some point, for unknown reasons. Off-rolling is the practice whereby schools remove difficult or low-achieving pupils from…

Compassion-Based Strategies for Managing Classroom Behavior | MindShift – Education Article

There’s a saying some educators use: “The best classroom management strategy is an engaging lesson plan.” That may be true, but there are often a few students who act out in class no matter how well the teacher prepares.

Do We Test Children Too Much? – Education Article

Reading Time: 4 minutes Do our schools in England test children too much, particularly at primary level? I don’t have a problem with 4, 6 and 11 year olds being tested in our primary schools. Testing knowledge is good. The real issue is ‘how’ the data is used for school accountability. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn has declared he would ‘scrap primary SATS if elected’ is a cheap publicity stunt. Meanwhile, Nick Gibb says ‘abolishing SATs would be [a] hugely retrograde…

The Opportunity to Learn in Different Ways – Education Article

Someone once told me, “You will know you are successful if you can create a school where students line up outside the gates begging to get in, like they do when an iPhone is released at the Apple Store.” So much of what you hear about school choice has to do with funding, accountability or public versus private schools.

What Does Instructional Leadership Look Like? – Education Article

How much material should instructional leadership provide? The final question is how much material to provide. The answer is all of it… though you need not actually mandate any of it. An incoming teacher needs support in the first year, and it’s neither fair nor desirable to expect a teacher to make up an entire program as the year goes along, within the confines of the philosophy and overall arc of a program they don’t yet fully grasp. In other…
