27 Strategies for Managing Your Classroom

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • To be honest, my first year wasnt necessarily a stellar one.
  • But with the help of veteran teachers and an understanding principal, I completed that year and became a master teacher by my third year.
  • Ask any teacher what their biggest challenge is on a daily basis, and most will say classroom management.
  • Matthias interrupts you with a question or an opinion about an unrelated topic, Rebecca is talking to her friend while you are attempting to redirect Matthias, and Susie, who is worried about her mother in the hospital, starts to cry incessantly.
  • On top of that, while you are distracted, Alfred is posting hurtful comments about Rebecca on Facebook.

Is Artificial Intelligence the Future of Education?

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • While some fear that artificial intelligence will take over education to the detriment of students and teachers, others claim that artificial intelligence will revolutionize and improve education.
  • Programs that use artificial intelligence can act as tutors for students by determining what each student is struggling with and delivering personalized interventions, just as a teacher would.
  • Rather than spending hours differentiating instruction for every student, teachers will soon be able to rely on artificial intelligence to determine the specific needs of each student and deliver needed interventions or enrichment.
  • While artificial intelligence can teach students skills or reinforce difficult concepts for struggling students, it cant replace a human teacher.
  • While artificial intelligence programs have proven, they can teach students to read or do math, teaching social and emotional skills is more complex.

What is a “No-Zero” Grading Policy?

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • This type of policy has been given the term no-zero grading, and it usually operates like this: If a student finishes an assignment, regardless if it is late or represents low quality, the student still deserves at least a grade of 50, just for their effort.
  • Educators who support this policy believe that zero grades can put students in too deep in a hole, making it mathematically impossible for them to pass, which may cause them to disengage from the learning process.
  • Also, giving a student a grade of zero is an oxymoron of sorts and not an accurate representation of what a child can do academically.
  • Skeptics, on the other hand, believe that no-zero grading policies send the wrong message to students.
  • Skeptics also believe that no zero grading can artificially inflate student grades, which can hide their academic deficiencies and socially promote students who dont know the material.

Internet Access is the “Toll Road to Equity”

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • While access to technology and the internet are not silver bullets per se, the absence of these critical tools and resources present significant impediments to achieving college and career readiness for students.
  • Secretary of Education Arne Duncan said: Most schools have about as much internet bandwidth as your house, during a conference in Washington, D.C. We are denying our teachers and students the tools they need to be successful.
  • Our national aspiration ought to be that every student, regardless of zipcode, not just graduate from high school, but graduate college and career ready.
  • How can we expect our students to compete globally when technology and internet literacy are considered basic college and career entry skills?
  • Successfully reinventing education calls for system-level response, and that response needs to include providing students and teachers with the resources that are found in todays workplace – – Lydia Dobynshas combined careers as a technology entrepreneur and executive, with education policy and non-profit service.

Why Librarians are the Key to Future Ready Schools

[/vc_column_text] [vc_column_text el_class=”topfeed-summary-list”]

  • Recognizing the strength of librarians in fostering digital resources and teaching digital responsibility, Future Ready Schools have placed school librarians at the forefront of this movement for good reason.
  • School librarians are responsible for developing not only the librarys collection of books but also its collection of digital resources.
  • Future ready schools aim to help students learn and master digital learning, which includes distinguishing between real and fake online content.
  • Furthermore, librarians amass digital resources that allow students to be creators one of the goals of future-ready schools.
  • Within a library, students have access to digital resources and technologies that they will use beyond the classroom and into the future.
