And so Day 3 of my story of God at work in my life as part of #OfGodAndMe #ThisNunsStory series. Yesterday mention of the book, The Silver Sword seems to have struck a chord with many so perhaps its not out of place to mention that today 7th April is #Worldhealthday 1/20
Ian Serraillier ended his talks by showing this photo with the words, ‘No child should ever again have that expression on his face’. My hope this the UK as host of the upcoming #G7 summit will prioritise Universal health care for all. #UCH 2/20
So back to my story. Living at home again and my dream of religious life gone out the window I applied and got a place for September at Brighton College of Education to do a cert ed in biological science & primary education 3/20

Here is a university road map on how the strengths of conventional, face-to-face teaching and online T&L can be optimally used to address today’s lecture room challenges.

I am not an instructional designer, but I have been teaching online internationally for over 10 years (2)
In the last 2+ years, I taught hybrid & online undergraduate courses at the University of Maryland Global Campus, among the largest top-20 online colleges in the USA.

Why I love learning.
Personal reflections from an #ActuallyAutistic perspective.
I realised I loved learning at nursery school. I pressed my painted palms onto sugar paper and slid smooth wooden beads on an abacus. I sat on a vintage tractor in the grounds and marvelled at its mechanics. To learn was to wonder.
I loved the fabric of the building. A small human sized door set in a large wooden gate. My coat peg with its sunflower motif. The canvas and metal camp beds we slept on after lunch. Collaborating with my cousin David, who helped do up my buttons, while I tied his shoe laces.

Right, I have spent a week thinking about this, so here goes…

Why Teachers Shouldn’t Post Student Work On Twitter.

Or, an #edutwitter thread that will make me regret a foray into The Discourse.

#teaching #teachers #ukedchat #schools
Claim: Posting pictures of exceptional student work/results is unhelpful and in the long term self-destructive.

(N.B. Yes I have thought about this, yes I know social media can be used well, but in this way it isn’t and it appears to be growing trend)
Right, so you see a teacher getting exceptional work out of a kid which they’ve posted on Twitter. You feel inadequate. Your confidence is knocked. You hit like anyway. Not sure why. Should be supportive. We do a tough job.

Moving online made me rethink my #CreativeWriting course delivery so I’m sharing what worked in case it’s helpful. Honestly, it’s embarrassing I didn’t see some of this before (but who has time for reflection? amirite?) Share your hot tips too, please. #onlineteaching #teaching
PROCESS OVER PRODUCT: My big insight was grading for Process, not Product. Reward students for trying what you teach—reward experiment itself, not its success. Success can come later. Pandemics delay aha moments. I can’t expect students to integrate as quickly now.
If we reward good writing only, talented students might write great stuff but never actually try/learn what you have on offer. Reward engaging the lesson/learning/process, rather than getting it perfect. Skills will improve if you learn them.

Under #NEP2020, teacher education will gradually be moved by 2030 into multidisciplinary colleges and universities. #NEPTransformingIndia
As colleges and universities all move towards becoming multidisciplinary, they will also aim to house outstanding education departments that offer B.Ed., M.Ed., and PhD degrees in education. #NEPTransformingIndia
By 2030, the minimum degree qualification for #teaching will be a 4-year integrated B.Ed Degree. The National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education will define these modalities. #NEPTransformingIndia

I am #grateful for the opportunity given by #IWS_Network to share my story, struggles and success in the voices without frontiers (VWF).
My name is Betelhem, most people call me Betty and I prefer it that way. I was born 27 years ago to a young couple in AddisAbeba, the capital of #Ethiopia. #IWSVoices 1/n Image
My mom and me rather look like sisters. Despite being a teenager when she got me, she sacrificed her whole life to raise me up. She made sure I had the best #education possible. I am forever grateful to my mom sis & do everything to make her and God #proud. #IWSVoices 2/n Image

1/ Seven lessons from seven months of #teaching #remotely in the post Covid-19 world.

Shorter sessions.

Rather than running a 90 minute #class break it down into 4 x 15 minute session.

Each session has a central point, a framework, an example and an application exercise.
2/ An exercise needs to be time bound and interactive. Group work would be great if you could pull it off.

For instance, in financial modeling, I share half completed worksheets that need to be completed in the next 15 minutes.

In pitching, I ask them to critique a pitch.
3/ As #teachers our objective is to #teach. Can't teach without getting your students to do hands on work.

Things work differently in remote setting. You can explain all you want but till your students do the thing you are teaching with their hands, your job is not done.

1/30 One of the major points of confusion about the #SAT and the #ACT specifically is what exactly is on the test. It’s always worth discussing the content of assessments, especially assessments that are so high-stakes.
2/30 When I started teaching shortly after college, I got into it as a part time job. I was a subject tutor, designing curricula and teaching math. I had always been comfortable with standardized tests, so it seemed (at the time) like that, too, would be straightforward work.
3/30 I’d never “prepped” for the tests myself when I was in HS, so I didn’t perceive/approach them as arenas that required strategy. It struck me that they were simply testing what I’d learned in school and my understanding of language and mathematical reasoning. #edutwitter

What is the diagnosis?
In patients with cirrhosis, always try to find the cause in those who present early. There is no idiopathic, no cryptogenic. Its all 'missed' cirrhosis.

My first months in Canada were rocky to say the least. Had a lot of #depression episodes, felt like giving up & didn’t know where to turn for help or how to ask for help. In retrospect, It was a lack of professional & social support system. I wish I knew #IWS by then!
Months went by before I realized I should motivate myself & be grateful for the #chance I've been given! After a year, I returned back to "normal", my old, happy and motivated self. I was #thrilled to wear the toga on my graduation, no togas in #Dutch graduations! #IWSVoices Image
I was graduated now what? Visited many jobfairs and went to resume workshops. Still couldn't land a scientific job. Worked as customer service agent and inventory control asistant at Cirque du Soleil & David's Tea resp. The job quest continues. #IWSVoices #jobhunting #polyvalent Image
