Selected this week teachers quotes
” A classroom no longer seems sterile, regimented, or threatening. In this transformation, more and more classrooms become communities of care, discovery, and learning (for students and teachers).” Rebecca Alber, Edutopia Consulting Online Editor
“While it is true that as teachers our main mission is to teach the students in our classrooms lots of exciting new language and skills, it’s also true that as professional educators we often invest a lot of our precious time in speaking to and dealing with students’ parents.
I would argue that there is so much more that could be done to encourage both parties to join efforts to guarantee that each student reaches their personal learning goals successfully.” Oxford University Press ELT
“Similar to smartphones and tablets in recent years, VR (Virtual Reality) headsets will surely work their way into schools through adoption in the consumer market.
As soon as children and parents have VR devices in their living room VR will eventually arrive in classrooms and the workplace.” Kirsten Winkler
“…too often we approach our jobs without a growth mindset, without being intentional about “learning new things.”
We ask our students to learn new skills and content. But because of time, support, or inclination, we don’t always do that ourselves.” Glenn Wiebe
“Quotes: They’re easy to repeat, prompt great discussion and are sticky to the brain. Share quote cards on a class website/learning management system, on social media or printed out in the classroom.
Trailers: Create a short video to promote interest in a book, a historical event or a person/character.” Matt Miller
“I wish that discussions of education data were as interesting as my conversations on baseball statistics. ” Arun Ramanathan
“Math is all around us, and stories are one way we attempt to understand the world around us. So it is no surprise that there are some good books out there that use story-telling to explore math concepts.”
