  • Leading From The Heart » “Put technology where it can be best used… In the classroom!”
    the west wing of our school I was at the computer lab with one other teacher She packed her kids up and went back because she only books the computer lab for the last period of the day so that her kids can play on the internet For her technology has nothing to do with learning it is a form of entertainment I stayed with my kids and used the time to work on our Science vocabulary while teaching them how to hyperlink in presentations They were linking their vocabulary words to comments and images made by their peers creating a collaborative learning network around the new terminology they are learning in Science Not bad for a wing it activity eh For some reason this teacher has not caught on yet that technology can be much more than a way to waste time I can understand the frustration of the new teachers that Stephen mentions in his post but until the more experienced teachers and administrators at schools begin to use technology as a learning tool really use it and demand that good forms of it be available in the schools it isn t going to happen I can also understand the frustration of the more experienced teachers who are expected to use technology but who aren t really given the time to grow less afraid of it and to experiment with what can be done There is a huge divide between our students who live and breathe with technology as part of their daily lives and the teachers who don t Huge and while there are still administrators who don t use technology in their daily lives and who don t champion for its appropriate use and availability in the school let alone the classroom well that divide can only be expected to widen Powered by ScribeFire Google Tracy Rosen 3 comments RSS trackback respond Name Mail will not be published Website Notify me of follow up comments by email Notify me of new posts by email Steve Ransom on September 26 2007 at 9 46 am Glad to see you are able to bring this discussion down to a practical level where you live and breathe every day This weekend my 5 yr old son has his first soccer practice I was blown away by these 2 coaches telling the students how to do a drill Now remember they are 5 years old And believe it or not they were quite frustrated that the kids were not catching on Amazingly neither of them ever thought to SHOW model them what their words were trying to express That got me to thinking As you state we do not give teachers time to grow we don t create school climates that are conducive to growth rather survival and crisis management and we don t mentor teachers enough by SHOWING them the power of connected and technology infused learning I worked with one teacher a while back who had the luxury

    of Learning Boiling it down PD Practice all adults remaining curious September 12 2007 at 6 39 pm filed under Classroom Tagged appreciative inquiry Community high school mindfullness Image Ghetto Curious George by the Frankfurt School made available on flickr by a creative commons license crossposted at leadertalk About a week and a half ago the night before beginning at a new school I wrote a post called Allowing Curriculum Planning to Remain Curious I wrote about how I needed to remain curious about my students and their contexts in order to create meaningful curriculum for them Today I am struck with how important it is to remain curious One of the reasons I reminded myself to remain curious to not fall back on old assumptions about learning is because I am in a new school With a new school comes a whole new culture and different sets of needs and expectations Christian Long helped me towards this reminder when he wrote in his note to self on the eve of his own first day at a new school You have plenty of time to share new ideas but listening watching and respecting is the first rule of business Listening and watching is your best trait going forward in this first year My mind keeps returning to that notion of remaining curious How easy it is to be curious now that I am in a new school but I am already noticing that I have created opinions about my students and the school that I take for granted after only one week So how much easier it is to create assumptions and rely on them rather than question and try to understand I m coming to the realization that remaining curious about what I do as a teacher a program

  • Leading From The Heart » Ethics in the classroom and common ground
    prevented by internal or external coercion from exercising his rights as laid down above Since an absolutely ideal speech situation can at best be approximated at being situated in a particular location precludes total inclusivity and a zero coercion environment is similarly hard to arrive at Habermas argues that approximations of the above rules should be used to establish the norms that are used in a ethics The interesting thing is that Habermas doesn t identify particular moral norms he instead provides a system by which individuals can determine whether or not their morals ethics are valid or to put it another way proposes a normative scheme where a moral or ethical rule is valid only if the people that would be affected by the moral or ethical rule assertion would could be reasonably expected to consent agree to the rule based on their faculty of rationality Tracy on August 19 2007 at 6 49 pm Hi Christopher and thanks for the comment I have an inkling that the distinction between morality and ethics is what is at hand here It could be that I am talking about ethics while Durff was talking about morality But I will let her weigh in on that Habermas ideal speech situation reminds me of Bohm s Dialogue On Dialogue A Proposal 1995 a strong influence on me Bohm s approach was collaborative with a goal of uncovering the beliefs and assumptions that underly what we say and do in order to reflect on them together and come to a greater collective understanding It is this type of structure that I like to use when involved in ethical decision making with others as I describe in the paper I hyperlinked above In reality what I describe is an ethics of care Noddings 1984 1992 2002 where care plays a large factor in any ethical decision I make This highlights the importance of relationship and context for ethical decision making In my ideal speech situation I will care for the people with whom I am making a decision and they will know I care for them Again this is ideal and something I strive for How do I show this Through my behaviour by acting in the way I described in my post As such ethics for me is more of a process than a prescription A process through which I approach a situation in conversation with others where we uncover our values what it is that touches us personally about the situation and realize that each person involved cares deeply about the outcome though their world view around it may be different than mine A process through which we can distill the common ground generally tied to values upon which we can make our decision If I can model such a process to my students one steeped in caring and respect for diversity I will be happy Steve on August 20 2007 at 7 40 pm Great discussion I have no answers to this
