Thrilled to be learning with Kathleen Cushman!
01:33 to: Peggy George
This is such an important topic! I hear so many teachers complain that their students don't want to learn... Makes me so sad!
01:41 to: Barbara Bray
Question: What is it that makes kids want to learn?
02:43 to: Barbara Bray
We feel so honored to have Kathleen Cushman sharing these conditions of learning Kathleen asked why kids are not motivated
03:33 to: Peggy George
lack of interest
03:44 to: Peggy George
no choice in what I am learning
04:11 to: Barbara Bray
Saw kids zoning out
04:13 to: Terri Hallam
limited interaction in group
04:14 to: Peggy George
learning things I already knew
04:21 to: rkilkenny 1
that looks like my school building 50+ years ago
04:36 to: Barbara Bray
no interaction or participation from the kids
04:52 to: Peggy George
listening only with no opportunity for hands-on or active participateion
04:56 to: Terri Hallam
yes - opinionated
05:36 to: Peggy George
the syndrome in Ferris Buehler's Day Off--anyone?? anyone???
05:48 to: Peggy George
all bored and tuned out
06:03 to: Terri Hallam
06:25 to: Peggy George
when the teacher is far more tired at the end of the day than the students :-) sign of who is doing all of the work!
06:26 to: Terri Hallam
same - tuning out Then Kathleen asked us what motivates us
07:19 to: Barbara Bray
when I'm learning something I care about
07:26 to: rkilkenny 1
07:32 to: Kathleen McClaskey
when I can create something for the first time
07:50 to: Peggy George
something I've always wanted to know how to do
08:09 to: Kathleen McClaskey
when I can collaborate on good ideas
08:18 to: Peggy George
yes! such an important point about being judged!
08:26 to: rkilkenny 1
yes, creating something...constructionism (is that the right word?)
08:50 to: Barbara Bray
someone is nudging me and coaching me - awwww Kathleen :)
08:59 to: Peggy George
I think the fear of being judged keeps lots of teachers from taking risks to try new things
09:13 to: Peggy George
09:22 to: Terri Hallam
09:24 to: Barbara Bray
Yes Peggy - the fear of being judged is something teachers really are concerned about
09:46 to: Ann
I appreciated when someone is cheering me on and if my peers are also interested in it.
09:54 to: Peggy George
many opportunities to try and try again without feeling like a failure!
10:04 to: Kathleen McClaskey
being passionate about the idea
10:07 to: Barbara Bray
Yes Ann - I agree. It feels good when your friends cheer you on
10:28 to: Peggy George
yes Ann! That encouragement is so important! It shows someone cares about you and what you are doing.
10:35 to: Barbara Bray
I learned how to tap dance and loved it. Let's do it together when you move out here to Oakland
11:23 to: Ann
Thanks Peggy and Barbara for cheering me on!
11:36 to: Peggy George
:-) we all need it Ann!
12:30 to: Peggy George
it may take awhile to load for you. I'm hearing it now
13:08 to: Terri Hallam
13:10 to: Peggy George
it was still playing for me
13:10 to: rkilkenny 1
yes, heard it
13:21 to: Peggy George
if it loads slowly we don't finish at the same time
13:27 to: rkilkenny 1
13:28 to: Terri Hallam
13:39 to: Barbara Bray
He mentioned mutual trust - that is so important
13:44 to: Terri Hallam
Safe from physical harm and trust with others
14:04 to: rkilkenny 1
a positive peer group
14:05 to: Peggy George
no pressure in after school time
14:17 to: Barbara Bray
I've worked with kids like Jason and heard the same thing. Advisors are so important and feeling safe
14:47 to: Barbara Bray
In some places like this, school is the only safe place
15:50 to: Peggy George
teachers can't change that bus experience for him--what can they do besides allowing him to stay at school longer?
15:57 to: Kathleen McClaskey
Feels safe with peers
15:59 to: Barbara Bray
Everyone needs their own crew and confidentiality
16:54 to: Barbara Bray
How do you create that condition wherever Jason is learning?
19:24 to: Ann
Amanda felt a connection to the topic.
19:25 to: Terri Hallam
19:28 to: Kathleen McClaskey
19:31 to: rkilkenny 1
gave her a common interest with her Dad
19:43 to: Barbara Bray
5 Amanda didn't even know she was interested until she started - personally connected to her dad
20:16 to: rkilkenny 1
an eye opener
20:16 to: Peggy George
I read a great blog post about a young boy who taught himself to read by reading car manuals online because he really want to know about cars! :-)
20:59 to: Peggy George
they had something in common to talk about and I'm sure the dad loved teaching her about it!
21:12 to: Barbara Bray
she made that connection to the bigger picture when she learned about cars it was how it was going to affect her and her relationship
23:32 to: Peggy George
can you let the audio play a little longer? it always gets stopped before I am finished listening because it takes awhile to load
24:37 to: Justin Samaha
Thanks for letting me know about that, Peggy. Will do!
25:44 to: Peggy George
I thought it was really interesting that she used the term authentic!
26:11 to: Peggy George
26:17 to: Barbara Bray
When something is authentic then we connect to it.
26:43 to: Barbara Bray
I am hosting a Dim Sum party on Feb 1st from someone from China - now that's authentic
27:01 to: Peggy George
what fun Barbara!
27:10 to: NVVA_Mrs.Hill
I am ignorant of Dim Sum
27:21 to: Peggy George
did they have a choice about how they would create their documentary?
27:55 to: rkilkenny 1
6 a friend visiting from Ireland wanted authentic US food when he visited NY...I took him to a restaurant that served snake
28:09 to: Peggy George
28:20 to: rkilkenny 1
it was a Native American restaurant
28:28 to: Barbara Bray
Active not passive. Neuroscience supports this. Trying and stretching and thinking from another perspective.
28:37 to: Peggy George
I often do that in Phoenix @rkilkenny Take them out for rattlesnake appetizers :-)
29:03 to: NVVA_Mrs.Hill
Students work and think instead of listening to lecture
29:07 to: Peggy George
29:18 to: Kathleen McClaskey
29:35 to: rkilkenny 1
touch, feel, taste, etc...all those senses impact learning
29:41 to: Barbara Bray
We had to learn about spiders so we brought in the Critter Lady who brought in some spiders. I even got to hold a tarantula and get over my fear of spiders.
29:46 to: Kathleen McClaskey
30:05 to: Peggy George
just saw a show segment on doodling that was making the case for how active the brain is when doodling :-)
31:09 to: rkilkenny 1
stretching the limits
31:14 to: Kathleen McClaskey
Someone was there for him to extend himself
31:16 to: Barbara Bray
Peggy- I'd love to see that show and use that as an example.
31:33 to: Ann
His "coach" helped him :)
31:39 to: rkilkenny 1
but the stretching has to be seen as a positive thing...something you can master...not something that masters you
32:01 to: Barbara Bray
Coaching means nudging and nurturing so stretching is a positive thing.
32:34 to: rkilkenny 1
there are some coaches who instill fear rather than determination
32:45 to: Barbara Bray
2 essential conditions: 1. got to value it and matter to you. 2. you as the learner if you try, you can succeed.
32:45 to: Peggy George
they need encouragement and support when they are being stretched so they don't give up
33:25 to: Kathleen McClaskey
There needs to be a personal value
35:01 to: Barbara Bray
Google NedTalk GR8 8
35:07 to: Kathleen McClaskey
There is a link to Ned Talk in Motivation Equation. It is a Wow!
35:41 to: Peggy George
36:18 to: Barbara Bray
Kathleen wrote a guest post for us about the 8 Factors: http://www.personalizelearning.com/2013/11/8-universal-secrets-ofmotivated.html
36:55 to: Peggy George
that was an excellent blog post! That's what I shared in my last webinar on personalized professional learning :-)

39:00 to: Peggy George
what advice do you have for the teacher who wants to allow students to follow their passions in learning when they are required to teach specific curriculum content every period of the day?
39:50 to: NVVA_Mrs.Hill
The public library can be a possibility
40:33 to: rkilkenny 1
NYC public libraries have curtailed hours
40:36 to: Peggy George
those are great options but they still have to go home...
41:02 to: Peggy George
Jason was afraid to ride the bus home
41:57 to: Peggy George
yes scripted curriculum :-(
42:09 to: Peggy George
teachers are so frustrated with it!
42:11 to: rkilkenny 1
but teachers also need to be available to "hear" their students...unfortunately there are some students who race the kids out of the building when the school bell rings
42:24 to: Peggy George
42:24 to: Terri Hallam
Excellent -42:26 to: rkilkenny 1
I meant some teachers who race out
43:03 to: Peggy George
I knew exactly what you meant rkilkenny :-) I've known teachers like that
43:43 to: NVVA_Mrs.Hill
44:00 to: Peggy George
kids can't explore their passions when they just get started and at the end of 45 minutes they have to leave it to move on to the next period/class
44:29 to: rkilkenny 1
Westside Story = Romeo and Juliet
44:34 to: Peggy George
kids love role playing with Shakespeare :-) saw a great example of that done on Twitter with Danika Barker
45:17 to: rkilkenny 1
being a teacher is complicated because we also have our own needs and outside lives
45:43 to: Kathleen McClaskey
The book Freedom Writers tells the story of what worked to engage inner city kids
46:15 to: Peggy George
Danika Barker gave us a great presentation on Classroom 2.0 LIVE about teaching Shakespeare with Twitter :-) http://live.classroom20.com/1/category/danikabarker/1.html
47:21 to: Peggy George
how do you manage it when all of the students have different passions/interests in the classroom?
48:13 to: Peggy George
love that point!
48:21 to: Peggy George
can create interests in kids
48:56 to: NVVA_Mrs.Hill
If you have a passion, you can infect the students
49:25 to: Peggy George
love the starting point of finding what matters to each child in your room :-) easy to build relationships and trust that way
49:56 to: Terri Hallam
thank you -- really great!
50:00 to: NVVA_Mrs.Hill
50:15 to: Peggy George
10 thank you so much Kathleen! very inspiring!
50:22 to: Barbara Bray
50:26 to: Peggy George
50:51 to: Peggy George
can't wait to read the book on my ipad! :-)
51:20 to: Ann
I just wanted to say I've been including more reflection time into my 2nd grade classroom. It has been exciting to watch my learners share with me how they are feeling about what they are learning an
51:20 to: Ann
d how much they think they pushed themselves. It's been powerful!
51:40 to: NVVA_Mrs.Hill
51:45 to: Kathleen Cushman 4
thanks, Ann, so true!
51:46 to: Peggy George
love that idea Ann!!! it's great that it is working with second graders!
52:13 to: Peggy George
That will be a great followup!
52:21 to: Kathleen Cushman 4
Keven is terrific!
52:30 to: Kathleen McClaskey
Thank you Ann for sharing
52:43 to: Peggy George
teachers need hope too! if they are tired, discouraged and beaten down it's hard to keep their energy up for motivating their students
53:23 to: Peggy George
will definitely look forward to hearing from Keven!
53:35 to: Peggy George
Thank you Barbara and Kathleen M for hosting these webinars!
54:11 to: Peggy George
11 you're very welcome!
54:26 to: Kathleen Cushman 4
You're the best!
54:35 to: rkilkenny 1
Thank you for a great discussion
