How Artificial Intelligence Can Help Teachers

The role of a live teacher is irreplaceable: as part of facilitating learning, they also serve as mentors, coaches, role models, counselors, and friends to their students. The nuanced, personal interactions and support teachers provide is where the real magic of the student-teacher relationship happens. Every student needs something different, and teachers are expected to meet these diverse needs. Often, this individualized attention and relationship-building is the most rewarding part of the job for teachers. However, the amount of time teachers have to devote to this important work is cut short because they must also contend with repetitive tasks, including grading and answering simple questions, that take up an outsized amount of their time. For example, high school and college teachers may find themselves spending hours answering the same questions over and over again. Common repetitive questions might include, “Where do I get my textbooks?” “How do I find the syllabus?” “When is our final paper due?” or “How can I see my grades?” Artificial Intelligence (AI) is here to help. Simply defined, AI is a branch of computer science that enables systems (such as machines or computers) to perform tasks that would ordinarily require human intelligence to complete. If the idea of AI seems futuristic or out of reach, read on to learn simple ways to integrate AI into your teaching and simplify your life. Using Artificial Intelligence in the Classroom Located in St. Louis, Missouri, Maryville University is the academic home for more than 10,000 students. In 2019, the college hired its first digital employee: a chatbot named Max Capacity. This bot answers frequently asked questions, including ones about textbooks and syllabi. Since its implementation, its workflow automation has freed up advisors to focus on more meaningful personal interactions with students. This might seem like a complicated technology to transfer into the lives of individual teachers, but in fact, teachers can create their own chatbots to answer student’s FAQs. Platforms such as SnatchBot are free, require no coding experience, and enable anyone to build a custom chatbot. If you’ve ever wished you could meet each individual student exactly where they are and provide them with personalized homework problems to match their level, you can! Adaptive learning technology exists to help with this. Long-standing academic publisher Wiley has released a program called Alta, which adapts to students’ proficiency levels as they work through curriculum materials, with no formal diagnostic testing required. Alta’s adaptive AI learning can easily identify learning gaps and reach back to prerequisite concepts students need to learn before they can move forward. Adaptive learning technology such as Alta can help teachers level the playing field for their students and ensure each pupil has a fair chance at learning, even if they come from varied educational backgrounds. Other similar technologies such as Century Tech can do the same. Century Tech provides adaptive learning for elementary through college students. Teachers who have used this technology in their classroom find it useful to get additional information about their students through diagnostics and assessments. Children can also benefit from the independent learning adaptive learning technologies provide. AI and Learning Styles Artificial Intelligence technologies can be used in the special education classroom and, more broadly, to accommodate a variety of different learning styles. FastForWord AI learning software is designed to meet the learning needs of English language learners, students with dyslexia, and struggling readers. Additionally, learning technologies like FastForWord may prove to be especially useful when students return to the classroom post-Covid. It’s likely that many students experienced ‘learning loss’ during the pandemic and may need a way to catch back up to their appropriate grade level. Educators hoping to help their students make up for learning loss should remember that best practice solutions should be equitable and efficient. Artificial Intelligence technologies meet both these requirements. More AI Teaching Tools Grading is one of the most time-consuming and tedious elements of a teacher’s job, but many online tools include autograding features that can save teachers tons of time. Some can even grade hand-written student assignments! Here are just a few examples: Flubaroo Bakpax ZipGrade BookWidgets Edmodo Teachers who are interested in automating their classroom tasks might also utilize GitHub Classroom or GitHub Teacher Toolbox, which was created to give educators free access to the best and most cutting-edge developer tools that can help automate, monitor, and improve educators’ workflow, including automatic grading. Far from being out of reach, Artificial Intelligence can make classrooms more manageable for teachers and more beneficial to students. In fact, AI seems to indicate the way of the future, and teachers should expect to see such technologies become more widely adopted across school districts in the near future, especially as education continues to rapidly evolve along with the Covid pandemic.

Assistive Technology Offers A Brighter Future

AT (assistive technology) helps compensate for a student's skills deficit or area of disability. It is now possible for a student to use remedial reading software and listen to audiobooks, among many other new innovations. Research is revealing that AT can improve specific skills deficits such as reading and spelling. For example, audio players and recorders can help your child to listen to words while reading them on a page. Some people with disabilities are expanding their circle of friends - and what an accomplishment this is! It is happening via the internet. They can network with other people who are in the same situation as themselves. The internet provides them with the same access to information as everyone else. It often results in providing them with a valuable experience as well as greater independence and less anxiety. Imagine your child developing social skills via the internet! AT is Not New - Although New AT is Frequently Becoming Available AT has been with us, in one form or another, for years. For example, we no longer think of wheelchairs, spectacles, prostheses, pill organizers, and memory aids as assistive technology, but they are. Similarly, hearing aids and communication aids are examples of AT. However, today one of the critical components of AT is the personal computer. It has become the backbone of independence for millions of individuals with sensory, physical, and learning disabilities. There are new AT's becoming available frequently. The present assistive technologies, which are the major ones today, include the following: 1. Text to Speech 2. Visual Search Engines 3. Reading Pens 4. Word Prediction Software 5. Voice Recognition 6. Electronic Spell Checkers 7. Digital Records 8. iPads and Tablets 9. Literacy Specific Software 10. Educational Software 11. Electronic Resources and Books We never heard of some of these AI's just a few years ago. Now many of them have become staples in the classroom. Following are some effective AT options to assist students with a learning disability: 1. MP3 recorder - this device can record ideas and help overcome short-term memory difficulties. 2. Photos taken with a cell phone or any device with a camera can be used instead of copying information from a whiteboard. The user can then digitally store and, in some cases, convert to text. 3. Computers and word processors provide the user the luxury of reducing editing and rewriting assignments. It helps to cut down on the time it takes for writing and allows the student more independence. 4. Multimedia and electronic information provide students with reading issues to improve their comprehension of a topic without being dependent on their reading ability. AT is Available for All Grade Levels How can your child benefit from AT? They will likely benefit early on in primary school. Most likely, they will advance from the use of pertinent software and online learning programs. It will support reading and spelling development. The children at this age also benefit from the multisensory nature of iPads, tablets, and the interactive whiteboard. Upper primary and secondary school students benefit from software such as Text to Speech, which provides for better comprehension of information and independent learning. Software to support the writing process is a great way to assist with the significant demand for writing during these school years. The number of essays needed to be written, book reviews, and so forth can be assisted by this technology. Other AT programs, such as organization skills, study skills, time management, and memory can be introduced at any age level. Advocate for Your Child If you believe some AT tool will benefit your child remember that schools must provide and pay for AT for students who need it. It is documented in both the Individual Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504. Under IDEA, students receive services and support through their IEP (Individualized Educational Program). Under IDEA, the IEP team is required to consider AT devices and services as a special factor during the revision of an IEP. AT can be any item, piece of equipment, or product system used to increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of a child with a disability. Sometimes the best place to begin when requesting an AT is with the teacher. Most likely, the teacher is already aware of your child's needs. If the teacher wants to know why you think a certain AT is necessary, you need to make your case. If you memorize the following, it will probably open the door: "AT improves the functional performance for my child. It allows them to communicate, perform academic tasks, move or travel around the school, use proper seating and positioning." (Of course, you must first identify the needed AT and then explain the performance it will assist, such as communication, mobility, and so forth.) We all know you are the strongest advocate for your child. Sometimes it can be a struggle to get an AT device. However, once you succeed, you will realize how vital your battle was and how successful your advocating prevailed!

Teaching with Primary Sources

Primary sources are first-hand and original accounts, records, or evidence. They are raw pieces of data without a given interpretation. Examples of primary sources are photographs, maps, manuscripts (journals, telegrams, diaries, etc.), newspapers, oral histories, radio programs, speeches, political cartoons, legal briefs, and official government correspondence. In comparison, textbooks are secondary sources that have been derived from primary sources. Political commentary, newspaper editorials, journal articles, magazines, and many books are also examples of secondary sources. The weakness of secondary sources is that they are accounts or interpretations created by someone without first-hand experience. Teachers of all levels can incorporate primary sources into their learning activities. Primary sources can be used in any subject area, but they are particularly useful for teachers of history, social studies, geography, english, writing, civics, cultural studies, and political science. Advantages of Using Primary Sources 1. Incorporating primary sources drives up student engagement and promotes active learning. Reading a summary of historical events in a textbook can be boring and dry for students. On the other hand, getting historical information from primary source documents such as maps, telegrams, and oral histories gives students the opportunity to be investigators as they sift through historical data to learn the facts, which they can then piece together to form an understanding of an event, time period, person, or place. This type of learning is active rather than passive. 2. Using primary sources teaches critical thinking, deductive reasoning, and problem-solving skills. When students read a curated account of events in a textbook, there’s not much room for thought. It’s easy for students to simply see the content as something they just have to memorize and then repeat in order to pass a test. However, if students are asked to learn about a topic through primary sources, they have no choice but to think critically about the information being presented because they have to use deductive reasoning to form their own interpretation of the source document being studied. Primary sources necessarily require students to develop skills of analysis, which benefits them across the curriculum. 3. In an increasingly polarized world, teaching with primary sources creates a more culturally diverse, inclusive, and equitable learning environment. When we talk about political or historical events in our classrooms, inevitably our instruction will contain some of our personal bias. We may even subconsciously choose to teach events that are relevant to our own cultural perspective, but that leave out other cultural perspectives. Using primary source documents can get around our own cultural biases by expanding our own cultural horizons as well as those of our students. Additionally, using primary sources makes the classroom inclusive because these types of teaching materials can appeal to all learning styles. For example, photographs and maps will speak to visual learners while oral histories will engage auditory learners. Ways to Use Primary Sources in the Classroom For elementary school students, primary sources can be used to encourage deeper learning about the world around them. For example, elementary school teachers might use photographs of their city or town in the past and present to teach skills of observation. When shown a historical photograph, what do students see? What in the photograph is the same as modern-day life? What is different? What conclusions can they draw as a result of observing these differences? Elementary students could then write simple sentences describing the differences they see between the historical and modern photographs. For all age groups, primary sources can be used to teach students how to synthesize and summarize information, a necessary skill for all subjects. Writing teachers might use primary source activities to give students an opportunity to learn about proper techniques for paraphrasing and quoting. For middle school through college, primary sources are fantastic references for students writing research papers or argumentative essays. A side benefit is that using primary sources can reduce plagiarism because students are using first-hand documents to draw their own conclusions rather than regurgitating the inferences others have already drawn. Websites to Source Primary Documents With the increasing popularity of primary source teaching, many online resources are available to help teachers easily locate first-hand sources. Some even include helpful lesson plans or activity guides to accompany the primary source sets. Digital Public Libraries of America Historical Scene Investigation DocsTeach Zoom in on US History Primary sources can help our students see things from multiple perspectives, which is perhaps one of the most critical skills in today’s divided world. Using primary sources creates a rich, active learning experience where students are in the driver’s seat and are empowered to engage with the world around them to collect information in order to form their own interpretations. This can also help students begin to grasp their own biases and can better prepare them to be informed global citizens with an understanding of perspectives other than their own.

Food for Thought, a Discussion of School Lunches

The advent of the novel coronavirus produced a lot of big changes in the education sector. Most notably, of course, was the shift to various forms of virtual learning but another big change was the availability of free lunch for all students. Many schools were offering free lunch to everyone and were able to do so because of emergency governmental funds. In the next several months and even years school lunch as an idea is likely to be thrust back into the public consciousness. School lunch, surprisingly, has been a controversial topic over the last decade or so. To most teachers it seems obvious that meals should be provided to students and that cost should not be an issue. It is perhaps the clearest fact of human existence that food scarcity has a negative impact on students and their growth as learners and as people. You can’t reach those upper levels of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs on an empty stomach. Despite the push by many in education to feed as many students as possible there are critics of free school lunch programs. There appear to be two major sticking points: (1) How healthy are these meals anyway? (2) Who is going to pay for this? This article will address each of these questions, but let's start with a little history. School lunch has existed in the United States going back to as early as the late 19th century but didn’t see governmental involvement until the Great Depression. A New Deal policy for school lunches made it possible to provide jobs to out-of-work Americans, food to hungry children, and payment for farmers who were facing collapse. Over the years increases and decreases have occurred to the national budget for feeding school children - notably Reagan’s administration cut the school lunch budget in 1981 by $1.5 billion - but there has not been a time where school lunch was freely available to every student regardless of income. For the next 30 years or so school lunches became more privatized and, in general, less healthy. An attempt was made to improve this by congress in 2010 when they passed the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act and it appears to have had a positive impact on student nutrition over time. This leads us into first question people ask when talking about school lunches: (1) How healthy are these meals anyway? A recent study published in JAMA (Journal of the American Medical Association) looked at diet quality among children and adults in the US between 2003 and 2018. That study found that “by 2017-2018, foods consumed at schools provided the best mean quality of major food sources, without disparities…” Obviously healthier options can be found than some school lunches, in general they do a relatively good job of providing essential nutrients to our students. It’s a well-established observable fact that people in poverty struggle to afford healthier foods and often end up saddled with the negative nutritional impacts of eating what they can afford, but there is demonstrable evidence that school lunches help combat this trend. But, honestly, even if the meals weren’t that healthy, it would still be better than starving, so while the issue of nutrition is an important one, it isn’t a solid reason to deny food to students. The second question, though, that people ask tends to be the more popular critique of these programs: (2) Who is going to pay for this? Personally, this author thinks that this question is an irrelevant one. It has been this author’s experience that anyone using this question as a reason not to do something rather than a hurdle to overcome doesn’t want it to succeed in the first place. It almost doesn’t matter how this is paid for so long as it is paid for. Students need to eat and eat well. School lunch, like public education in general, should not be viewed as a source of revenue but as an opportunity to better the lives of all Americans. There is no justification for preventing students from eating full, nutritious meals regardless of whether they can afford it. If we as a nation prioritized the health of our students, we could easily find the means to pay for them to get a good meal.

What Will Classrooms in the Post-COVID-19 World Will Look Like

What Will Classrooms in the Post-COVID-19 World Will Look Like Introduction It is no secret that the pandemic crisis managed to galvanize the education sector and sparked confusion in local communities. In the post-COVID-19 world, however, educational institutes have a new responsibility to ensure safety and adapt to higher standards of classroom learning. COVID-19 Vaccination and Classrooms UNESCO highlights that there will be a different learning curve in the post-pandemic world. With the roll out of vaccinations around the world, it seems like schools and universities will back soon. But the classroom learning may be different than most people realize. In fact, professional academics and industry experts agree that a hybrid and personalized learning model would lead to more opportunities for students. As of now, there is an urgent need for a personalized classroom setting that works in favor of teachers and students. The Need for a Better Learning Experience When it comes to project-based problems, teachers may have to play a more extended role to ensure a perfect learning experience. The pandemic-related learning model is out of the door. Now, the time is to test new strategies that would lead to more innovative classrooms moving forward. More Transformative Approach Even before the pandemic, schools were looking for more transformative tactics to improve K-12 education. For starters, there is a good chance a structured and slow-paced learning model might be obsolete. When it comes to the learning experience, schools have started to understand that each student has its own pace. Therefore, there is no strict need to bring every student on the same page. Use of Technology Most students are now equipped with a wide range of tech devices and tools. Schools intend to use various technologies to adopt, evaluate, instruct, and challenge students’ current innovation levels. You don’t have to think about learning process in terms of acceleration or remediation. Instead, students will be responsible to complete the curriculum at their pace and specific learning needs. More Communication and Collaboration In a personalized classroom learning environment, schools will be able to develop more communication, collaboration, and independence among students. In a post-pandemic world, students will be able to check their real-time academic progress rather than wait for the teachers to pass grades. More Competitive Drive Through a variety of technologies, students can master a variety of concepts and get a competitive edge over others. It would also help students make informed decisions and gather fact-based supportive arguments. Besides, an individualized and engaging learning experience is more meaningful for small groups. More Focus on Safety More schools now want to create an outdoor learning space to teach small and large groups. There is also more attraction towards the stone and brick seating arrangement close to trees. The idea is to create a more healthy and spacious classroom experience for students. Plus, the administration can also use the same space for meetings and events purposes. Despite vaccination roll out, schools want to prevent crowding within the facilities. Some schools also intend to install various roof-based structures to make the learning experience more interesting for students. Simultaneously, more school classrooms will have flexible indoor spaces. It is an excellent mechanism that would allow schools to deal with another pandemic in the foreseeable future. Ultimately, more flexible indoor spaces will create a better learning experience for students. Wrap Up The current emphasis on remote learning won’t vanish out of thin air after the pandemic crisis is over. In fact, it looks like most academic institutes now want to opt for a hybrid classroom model that focuses on in-person learning and incorporates elements of online learning to create the most compatible and flexible learning experience for students.

Behavior Boosts How to Keep It All Together at The End of The Year

Let us face it-it has been a long year! While your kids are trying their best to acclimate to online/hybrid/in-person learning with masks and social distancing restrictions; things can start to unravel as the end of the year approaches and the warm weather makes its debut. As a teacher, you do not have to lose control of your classroom or students. Here are some simple tips and tricks to keep it all together (for everyone!) at the end of the school year. Mind and Body Breaks Movement is key! Whether you turn on a Go Noodle (free for educators!) or do a search on YouTube, you will be surprised at how many cool and catchy mind and body breaks you will discover! From a Roblox Fitness Run, to Animal Yoga, the options are endless. Consider beginning or ending each class with a quick movement break, or when you observe students having a difficult time sitting still. The great thing about this energizing break is that they can be incorporated during a Zoom or in person session, so everyone can be included-whether they are physically in your classroom or in their personal living room. Fun Friday Notice your attendance dwindling on Fridays? Consider offering a fun attendance and behavior incentive-Fun Friday! Save the last half hour of the day for a fun activity that you set up for the kids, or that everyone votes on as a class. It can be something as simple as chalk and bubbles on the blacktop (everyone gets their own, of course); or an ice pop picnic outdoors (bring a towel to sit on!). You can do this as a “just because” activity, or offer it to students who have excellent behavior, who turn in work regularly, or who have exceptional attendance-it is totally customizable! Wheel of Names The Wheel of Names is a fun way to catch kids off guard, but also reward them for doing great things! During a live Zoom session or in person activity, randomly spin the online wheel (which you can pre-program with student names). If the wheel lands on a student who is demonstrating appropriate behaviors, reward them with a bonus point or some kind or prize. If they are not paying attention, if they are not present, or if they are not doing what they are supposed to, spin the wheel again. This can be done once per class or as many times as you would like, to get students back on track and to help them pay attention. Hold Virtual Conferences Parent participation, involvement, and communication is key for a successful end of the school year. While many conferences are held in the beginning of the year, or mid-year; hardly any are held at the final months of school. Consider setting something up so you can do a final “thank you” and offer some suggestions for keeping attendance up and behavior on point. Parents will also appreciate your efforts and together, you can work as a team to ensure each child ends on a positive note and transitions to the next grade effortlessly. Select a Student of the Day The last two weeks of school can be quite challenging. Many students (especially older ones) have checked out. Consider selecting a Student of the Day, to honor those who stand out academically or behaviorally. A daily nominee also gives students who struggle with focus and attention a chance to win this award, since its criteria is run on a day-by-day basis, rather than a weekly or monthly standard. Create certificates and have a special prize ready, such as a coupon for ice cream at lunch, or a free homework pass. Do not let the end of the year blues get you down! There are plenty of things you can do to keep your students in line and your classroom in order as the school year dwindles down. Finish strong, just as you started; and be sure to utilize some of these tips and tricks to promote positivity, engagement, involvement, and excellent behavior!

What Community Colleges and Regional Universities Need to Know about AI and Adaptive Learning

Community colleges and regional universities may be behind major universities in terms of quality of education and resources, but they are always trying hard to empower and educate students who can’t afford to join any of the higher-end universities. But, with the innovation experienced in education through Artificial Intelligence and Adaptive Learning, community colleges and regional universities are falling far behind in educating their students more intuitively. Let’s have a look at some of the benefits of AI and Adaptive Learning that can also be experienced by students of these educational institutions. Personalized Learning This is one term that you must have heard many times if you are a student or educator, and AI makes it possible for educational institutions to develop learning plans that can actually be adapted by each student differently. This means that all students aren’t subjected to the same coursework and lesson plan. Rather, students are taught according to their skills and aptitude, so that they can retain knowledge better. Community colleges and regional universities can also make learning easier for their students through AI. Adaptive Learning Groups Another major benefit of AI and Adaptive Learning that it facilitates the creation of learning groups that feature like-minded students with similar mindsets and skills. By doing this, educators can give each group a task according to their capabilities, so that each student is assessed on their abilities, rather than the collective ability of the entire classroom or the teachers’ expectations of a particular student. Virtual Learning Artificial Intelligence has been further innovated and integrated with virtual and augmented reality to facilitate students in their learning and education. VR-assisted learning is extremely beneficial for students in certain subjects, such as science, history, geography, etc. It expands the scope of learning beyond the classroom, and also makes learning fun for students. If community colleges and regional universities jump the bandwagon, their students will be at par with those from other major universities. Assisted Essay Grading Teachers and professors can have quite a hard time when they have to grade hundreds of essays in a short period of time. Not only can this be quite a stressful ordeal, but it also makes them more prone to make errors while grading essays. AI provides the perfect solution for this through an essay grading software, which can quickly check and grade essays based on predefined criteria. This makes it highly beneficial for community colleges and regional universities, who have a higher number of students than other institutions. Dynamic Scheduling AI uses predictive analysis to learn the habits of various students in an institution, which can be used to create a suitable study plan that is convenient for them. This is highly beneficial for people who work and study together, which is most common with community college students. They can learn at a more stable pace than having to take classes all day and then work for 6-8 hours on end. Last but not least, AI and Adaptive Learning is a useful tool that helps universities and educational institutions to teach their students in a much more intuitive and advanced manner. This helps students in discovering their true potential, rather than conforming to a standard that all students follow. It is high time that community colleges and regional universities should realize the benefits of AI and Adaptive Learning for them and their students.

Uncomfortable Truths: Things That No One Really Explains About Your First Year Of Teaching

We are at that time of year where many college students will be graduating with their degrees and applying for those first teaching jobs. Equipped with all the skills they’ve learned and a cautiously optimistic outlook, these budding professionals will go into the education workforce ready to make a difference in their students’ lives. You who are reading this may be one of those bright new faces. I am not going to frighten anyone into thinking that what they learned at their respective university or certification process is useless but the way all of that information is applied and what it actually means in a practical sense casts everything learned from new teacher training in a different light. So, here is a list of a few things to consider that might be helpful for anyone who plans to enter the teaching workforce this year. What the job description SAYS and what the job description IS are probably a little different. When looking at openings and even through the interview process you will get an idea of what you think the job will be like. There is nothing wrong with that but you are going to want to go into that job ready for curveballs and changes to what you expected. Most contracts have something similar to the phrase “other duties as assigned” so you want to be ready for hallway duty, lunch duty, suddenly being in charge of an afterschool program, organizing an event or anything else that may disrupt the day to day business of teaching students. Your students will get under your skin and that's ok. In our teacher education programs we often come out assuming that our students will always try their best or be generally good-natured even when they misbehave. For the most part this is true - most of your students will give their best and be good-natured - but thats not always the case. Sometimes your students will not prioritize your class, openly defy you on things that don’t seem to really matter, or even deliberately try to hurt your feelings. It can be easy to take this personally or to assume that those kinds of interactions are a failure on your part somehow. It is important to remember that it is not necessarily your fault. Reflection is good and it is valuable to consider how you as a teacher might have been better in those situations but even on the days where we are being outstanding teachers we will fail at things and our students will push our buttons. You are a person with feelings, not an information machine. It does get easier but It may not feel like it. Many first year teachers feel like they are drowning at their new job. They often look to their more experienced peers and wonder how they can manage so effortlessly. The answer is relatively simple: the job does get easier as we go and you won’t always feel like you are drowning even if that seems impossible. You’ll get to year five and think “well, that wasn’t really as bad as I thought it was.” Additionally, you are probably doing a better job than you think you are doing. All shortcomings in those first few years feel like major failures when, in the grand scheme of things, they are probably not as bad as you may think. Not every administration will be supportive of your goals as some. Being an administrator is a hard job and they have the tough responsibility of figuring out where to put their time, energy, and school resources. Sometimes this means you won’t have the material support for the things you would like to do as a teacher. Even if an administrator likes your idea they may not be able to help you with it very much. You may end up needing to table your grand plans for another year. Teaching is your job, not your life. Most of us that enter the education field are idealists in one way or another and it is very easy to feel a pressure to devote a lot of outside time and energy to your teaching well beyond the school day. Most of us will always take some work home but you run the risk of burning yourself out if you can’t find ways to separate yourself from your workday. Sometimes, you have to stop doing work even if the work isn’t done and that’s ok. Sometimes you have to say “no” to a coworker who is asking you to take on an extra responsibility. At the end of the day, you are a person and your mental health matters. Getting that first teaching job is exciting and will prove to be rewarding but it will also challenge you in ways you could have never anticipated. Doing your best to “expect the unexpected” can help mitigate those challenges and make surviving that first year a little easier.

Transformation of Education Sector

When the COVID-19 spiraled out of control, universities and schools had no choice but to close their doors. UNESCO confirms that up to 300 million students had a direct impact due to the pandemic crisis in early 2020. With the roll out of remote learning environments, remote academic breaks, and even remote attendance, schools and universities have had a major transformation of IT systems. Education Sector and the Role of Digital Transformation The education sector is aware of the changing and emerging technologies in 2021. But the objective of the education sector is to improve its existing learning processes after the pandemic crisis. It looks like digital transformation may serve as a stepping stone for the education sector to combine in-person and eLearning settings. Learning Software and Online Platforms Learning programs and online platforms continue to help schools and universities transform their traditional model. For starters, the interactive communication software allows students and teachers to connect with more ease. With more robust educational platforms and software, teachers are now able to conduct more precise and thorough evaluations. In fact, a digital learning environment through online platforms and software makes it possible for students to enjoy the entire learning process. Gamification Teachers don’t always need in-person interaction to ensure high engagement among students. When it comes to classroom management, teachers use digital technologies to create intuitive and interactive lessons through various online platforms. Educators can create games for each grade level and subject. More Focus on Mobile Applications When it comes to the mass adoption of mobile applications – it’s more than just about video conferencing. Smartphones and applications have become essential for tutors and students to complete academic goals on time. Through a variety of mobile apps, students now can access information in the form of PDFs, text, audio recordings, and videos more easily. The Role of Artificial Intelligence AI-based eLearning tools now have become crucial voice and text recognition tools for students. For instance, simple AI chatbots help students analyze real-time academic progress. In fact, AI-specific data analytics models can even offer a personalized studying method for different students. Moreover, schools and universities use AI-based facial recognition and evaluation systems to analyze the behavior of students during tests and exams. It eliminates the chances of cheating and influences positive behavior among students. The Wonder of Automation The endless operational and administration tasks continue to create problems for the education sector. Fortunately, automation has managed to share the burden of operational and administrative responsibilities for the education sector. School systems can now roll out sophisticated attendance management and notification systems. The same systems help schools minimize bureaucratic interventions and ensure an automated flow of operations. Education Sector and Data Analytics Most educational systems depend on extensive data processing. In most cases, school systems now require data analytics software for a personalized teaching methodology. Schools and universities use big data technology to produce deeper insights into student learning. The combination of big data and analytics technology allows schools and universities to build better student and teacher interactions. Conclusion Most academic institutes combine new software processes to stay on track rather than build a new system. In the future, there will be more transformative solutions that would align with existing systems. It is interesting that despite mountainous challenges, the education sector continues to adapt and embrace digital transformation.

Regional Centers Offer Assistance to Parents and Children

Parents raising a child with developmental disabilities often need outside help to receive such services as Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), speech therapy, or respite assistance. This would be the time to contact your Region/ADA Center. There are ten ADA Centers located in the United States and an ADA Knowledge Translation Center (this center is located at the University of Washington in Seattle, Washington. The main purpose is to execute activities that enhance the implementation of the ADA in communities across the United States). Each ADA Center has many regional centers. Their goal is to provide services to further the continued success of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The act was created in 1990 to prohibit discrimination against those people with disabilities. The Regional Centers The Regional Centers, which are located within the 10 Region/ADA Centers, serve people with disabilities living within their region. The Regional Centers are created to serve the specific needs of the population living within the area. To learn which regional center serves your area, please visit https://adata.org/find-your-region. For example, if you live in Pennsylvania, you would be a part of Region 3, the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center. They also provide services for Delaware, District of Columbia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. As of January 2021, 673 Regional Centers are serving the U.S. Each of these centers is operated by a non-profit corporation. The centers offer various services such as assessments, case management, occupational, physical, speech therapy, preschool programs, respite care, adult day programs, counseling, behavior intervention, transportation, and many other programs. Not all regional centers offer the same services. Most children are eligible for services if they are diagnosed with a disability that begins before their 18th birthday, and the disadvantage is expected to continue indefinitely. At the same time, it also presents a substantial limitation. Infants and toddlers (age 0 to 36 months) suspected to be at risk of having a developmental disability or who have a developmental delay may also qualify for services. Each Regional Center has its system for parents to apply for assistance. Generally, it requires a phone call or a visit to the center. The contact might be followed by completing an application/referral. Following this, the parent will be invited for an in-person interview, or a representative(s) from the center might make a home visit. Assessments Are Usually Required An assessment is usually required to determine if the person is eligible for services. It usually involves the center staff contacting various people, such as parents, teachers, and others, to accumulate as much information as possible about the potential client. The final step is usually to determine if the person meets the standards for eligibility that each state sets for services to be provided. If the person is determined to be eligible for the program, an Individual Program Plan (IPP) is developed. The plan states the specific objectives to development competencies to achieve personal goals regarding the person's life. This includes participation in the community, housing, school, work, and leisure time. The IPP identifies the hopes and dreams for the person's future. If the child lives with their family, the plan is called the Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP). This plan includes an additional section explaining the services and supports needed to assist the child to live at home. Regional Center Expenses The Regional Centers do not charge for their assessment services. Generally, there is no charge for most of the services and supports the individual and family receive. A few of the services are subject to Family Cost Participation based on a sliding scale of the family's ability to pay. The programs offered by Regional Centers should never be overlooked by a family raising a child with disabilities. For example, if you feel overwhelmed parenting your child, you deserve some "alone time." Most likely, you will qualify for respite care. If your child is having tantrums; and you are not sure what to do, you might be provided services to help you cope with the various situations. If you want your child to interact with others, there are parties, dances, and other activities the child can enjoy offered through different Regional Center vendors. Regional Centers provide some excellent services. You are encouraged to check them out.

How To Make Your LGBTQ+ Students Feel Safe In Your Classroom

In our current political climate issues surrounding LGBTQ+ people are at the forefront of discussion. Many of these discussions and policy decisions made by our government directly impact our students and it's not the kind of thing we can ignore or fail to address. Regardless of how you personally feel about the LGBT+ community and the various governmental policies being discussed and signed into law, we as teachers have a responsibility to think about the educational and emotional needs of all of our students. We have gay students in our classes, we have trans students in our classes, we have students who are questioning their own sexuality and gender in our classes and we are the adults in the room. Teachers play an important role in the social and emotional development of our students and the decisions we make can have a significant impact on our students’ overall wellbeing. Don’t Assume. There are some very simple things we can do as teachers to make our LGBT+ students feel as safe and cared for as everyone else. The first is to assume nothing about them. While you may feel like you have a good read of your students you can not assume anything about a person’s sexuality or gender identity simply by looking at their clothes or mannerisms. The reality is that many junior high and high school students don’t know their own sexuality or gender identity so it is even less likely that their classroom teacher is going to know better. Know the language. Language grows and changes fast but it's important to know the kinds of words you may hear thrown around, particularly if those words are going to be used in a derogatory manner. “Queer,” for instance, is a word that was used by many as a pejorative but has since been reclaimed by the LGBT+ community. Academia centered around LGBT+ topics often gets referred to as “Queer Studies” or “Queer Theory” so hearing the word itself doesn’t mean a student is using it as an insult. In fact, many people prefer using the term “queer” as a stand in for “LGBT+” because it feels more general. A couple of other examples are the terms “cis” and “trans.” Generally a trans person is someone who does not identify with the gender they were assigned at birth whereas a cis person does identify with the gender they were assigned at birth. So, a cis man is a person who was assigned male at birth and later affirmed that identity. A trans man is someone who was not assigned male at birth but identifies as male. Neither are pejorative and are meant only to describe someone’s state of being. Seek out information on terms so you know how your students are likely to use them. Let Them Tell You Your students may not be comfortable sharing information about their gender or sexuality particularly if they are afraid that their peers are likely to make fun of them for it. Don’t pry information out of your students. Instead, provide them opportunities to share with you if they feel comfortable. This is particularly important with your transgender students. One fantastic strategy you can use is to have every student fill out an “Interest Inventory” at the beginning of the year that includes their interests, hobbies, and favorite subjects. On that Interest Inventory ask the students the pronoun they would like you to use in class, the pronoun they would like you to use around their parents, the name they would like you to use in class and the name they would like you to use around their parents. This gives those students control of how that personal information is distributed but also gives them the opportunity to be accepted and acknowledged by you. Their parents may not be supportive of their gender identity so asking them what they would like to be called around their parents protects them from being accidentally outed by a well-meaning teacher. It will be much harder for you students to bully a trans kid if they see a teacher affirming that identity openly in class. It's a small form of support that goes a long way. Make The Effort When dealing with LGTB+ issues in your classroom there is a distinct likelihood you will make some mistakes and that is ok. The most important thing is to make the effort to take care of your students even if you don’t understand or are confused by what they are asking of you. At the end of the day, regardless of how you feel about LGBT+ topics, these are your students and your responsibility to care for while they are in your classroom. It is a tragic statistic that there is a much higher suicide rate among trans youth. A 2018 study performed by the American Academy of Pediatrics found that female to male students had a 50.8% suicide attempt rate, nonbinary students had a 41.8% rate, male to female had a 29.9% rate, and students who were questioning had a 27.9% rate. This is compared to their cis peers who had a 17.6% suicide attempt rate for female and a 9.8% rate for male. LGBT+ students are, at minimum, twice as likely to attempt suicide between the ages of 11 and 19 and, in the case of trans students, three to four times more likely. Making an effort to understand and support your LGBT+ student population is a powerful form of suicide prevention.

Merit/Demerit Systems Within The Classroom: Tips For Using Them Effectively

Different teachers have different philosophies about how to most effectively manage their classrooms and often schools or districts have their own policies that teachers should follow. One common practice is to use behavior-based point systems (like Class Dojo) to incentivise positive behaviors and disincentivise negative ones. This is not an article about whether or not you should use those kinds of systems but an article about effective ways to use them if you choose to. As a teacher you should utilize whatever behavior systems work for your management style and for your students. 1 - Make the points redeemable One of the easiest ways to make point systems work is to give your students something to spend their points on. It can be helpful to have multiple different goals that can be redeemed both at the individual level and the class level. For instance, you could have a “treasure box” filled with cheap toys that students can spend their points on every friday while also having a collective goal where the students as a class have to earn a certain amount of points to get a free day or some kind of celebration. Both rewards would exist simultaneously giving the students a long-term goal to work toward while also providing them short-term returns for their good behavior. This is aimed at elementary but could work equally well at the secondary level. The behaviors to be rewarded and the rewards themselves would simply need to be designed to fit the needs and wants of older students. 2 - Give points often One of the problems we find ourselves in is putting so much weight on the points themselves (both positive and negative) that we are often hesitant to give them out. We’ll see a student misbehaving and want to redirect their attention and ask ourselves, “but do I really need to take points away for that?” This means that when we do follow through with giving a student demerits (or taking points away) it hurts their points a lot more. The solution is to give out points (both positive and negative) frequently. Giving out lots of positive points makes it hurt less when you need to give negative points and ultimately will reinforce positive behavior more effectively. We have all seen that student who gets in just enough trouble that they decide there is no going back for the rest of the day. Some kids shut down if they feel like things have gone too far and giving lots of points makes it less likely for them to do that. They are still disincentivised from negative behaviors but aren’t hit too hard by the loss of points for those negative behaviors. This is particularly effective if you give a lot of positive points at the beginning of the day. That way, students have a little bit of a cushion if their behavior starts to slip in the afternoon. 3 - Be consistent If you are giving out lots of points it makes it much easier to be consistent. We as teachers always try to be understanding with our students who need a little bit of leniency with discipline. We understand that being fair doesn’t always mean giving exactly equal treatment to everyone. However, if you are giving out lots of points then you can still consistently provide rewards and call out negative behaviors without punishing anyone too much. Essentially, it makes the need for leniency feel less unfair to those who don’t need it. 4 - Consider a larger point economy If your whole school or district is using the same point system and the merits/demerits students can earn in your class can have an impact on them in other classes then its important to consider the overall economy of points. Encouraging other faculty to be unified in how points are distributed makes it easier to manage the rewards they can earn and the consequences they could receive for poor choices. This can be particularly useful in classes like music or art where students could potentially earn things that help them in their homeroom or make up for a mistake they had made earlier in the day. This also helps save the classroom teacher money on their “treasure box” because they will have more of an idea of how many points students are likely to earn in a given week and adjust their “prices” accordingly. Overall it comes down to personal teaching philosophy and your students’ needs. These are just a few tips to make your use of merit/demerit systems more effective if you choose to use them.

Tips for Increasing Classroom Community During Hybrid Learning

Hybrid learning has certainly thrown everyone for a loop this past year! Now that both teachers and students have gotten the hang of this in person/online weekly routine; educators can start to focus on not just posting and teaching content, but truly making all students feel as though they are a part of the classroom community, whether they are in person on any given day, or online. Bringing together the gang can be a challenging feat-especially on days when learners are listening in at home. Here are some tips and tricks for increasing classroom community during hybrid learning in order to make sure all students feel part of the class and are more inclined to cooperate and participate. Tip #1-Throw in An Element of Surprise When reading a certain story or studying a specific theme; dress the part! Your students will get a chuckle if they see you wearing a pair of overalls and a farmer’s hat if you’re doing an, “On the Farm” thematic unit, or if wearing a pair of butterfly wings for an Earth Day study. You can leave your students wondering what you’ll have up your sleeve each day or week, and this will make them more likely to come to class online during their at home days, but also make in person students feel like there’s a sense of normalcy with their in person learning. Invite students to also dress up on special days to feel as though they are a part of the lesson regardless of their learning location. Tip #2-Utilize Slides Sometimes, due to time constraints, or technology issues, it is nearly impossible to call on and hear from each and every student who wants to share their thoughts or provide an answer to a question you pose. Consider using a Google slide, which can be shared and edited by everyone, in order for all students to be “heard” and participate. Each day or week, post a question that pertains to what you’re learning about so all students can be a part of the classroom community. This is also a wonderful way to informally assess which students are understanding a skill based on what they post on slides. Tip #3-Make Time for Presentations Just as you would in class, continue to hold presentations. If students have completed a writing or research assignment, call on a few students each day to share their work. They will feel recognized, accountable, and will be able to learn from their classmates, based on their responses and experiences. Tip #4-Offer Opportunities for Hands on Learning At Home Learning about Native Americans and want to have your students design their own longhouses? While you may begin this activity on a Monday and finish on a Tuesday, your Thursday/Friday kids will be left without constructing these figures. You can certainly ensure all students have the opportunity to be hands on, even while at home. It may just take some more planning and preparation on your end. You can post directions for students to follow along at home and contact parents ahead of time to make sure they have supplies set up and ready to go. You can even offer take home kits, which can be picked up at school or sent home with students on the day they are physically in school. This way, no one feels left out and all students have the ability to enjoy hands-on learning in a socially distanced, safe way. Tip #5-Offer Participation Incentives If participation and attendance is lacking among your students during their at home days, consider having a participation incentive. Each student, in person or online, can earn a point just for coming to school, a point for participating at least once during class, and a point for turning their work in on time. At the end of each week, raffle off some prizes that have been donated by the community or that you have picked up, to reward students for their efforts. Tip #6-Recognize Hard Work Hybrid learning is not easy for any party involved. It’s nice to recognize hard work, responsibility, respectful behavior, and personal discipline; just as you normally would if all students were participating in in-person learning. You can recognize hard work by continuing the Student of the Month award or by doing a random shout out during a live online session. You can mail letters home as a surprise for students and parents in an effort to make their day and let them know that their efforts aren’t going unnoticed. These little boosts are important for building respect and rapport between yourself and your students, as well as with peers. These six tips and tricks are easy ways to ensure all students feel present in a classroom, even when they physically aren’t. Consider giving some a try to promote a heightened sense of classroom community for all learners involved.
