Professional Development

This group is intended for people who provide technology PD to teachers. I think there are a lot of resources and ideas about best practice that we can share.

Check out Hungry Teacher's lesson featured on Ted-Ed with over 200,000 views. If you like, there is more where that came from.

Shark Week is finally here! Check out one of the slides from Hungry Teacher's,"I think we need a bigger BOAT!!!" mixed with a little Desmos.
Help share these lessons.

We have opened up registration and call to present for the 3rd annual Teaching & Learning with the iPad Conference 2014!  If you are doing great things with the iPad in the classroom submit a proposal.  We are looking for expert experience from all curricular areas and age groups.

Teacher Needs Support. I am working on my graduate research study and need perspectives from 10 K-12 teachers on what drives them to learn and engage in virtual communities like C 2.0. Please consider participating as your input and expertize would contribute greatly to the research. Click here for more information.

Our seminar class went well on Wednesday. The students loved Dan Meyer's 'Taco Truck'. I did see that Hungry Teacher released Paper "Planes". Hold on tight and prepare to “take off”. Mathematical Domains: Geometry, Measurement and Data. Grade Level(s): Sixth, Seventh, Eighth, Ninth. 

Some of the other teachers in our school have found the 'The Frankenstein Project'. Check out, Spider Frankenstein.

Here is an idea for a flipped topic, PIZZA. I have my students call their favorite pizza place and do a little research on their own (diameter and price). They will need to figure out the price per square inch of the pizza. I will partner this topic with Hungry Teacher's lesson, "Any Way You Slice It" (brand new). Wait until you see how challenging that lesson is. If interested, go to

Let me know what you think. Saw these guys at a conference in Denver.

We have now branched out in response to educators needs and now offer free and open access to our Groups4Schools Community. All inclusive resources to work and learn in Groups, no need to look elsewhere for one off tools. Archived feeds, filing and all the resources you need to connect, create, share, communicate and collaborate in one place.

From one educator to others we hope you will drop by, join or create a group and take advantage of our community to work and learn virtually.

Visit Groups4Schools click on the Community, visit our portal splash page then send us an email for password access, again open, free and private groups.

We've all been looking for those all encompassing online virtual toolsets to connect students so they can create, edit, share, communicate and collaborate. We're working with a vendor in Boston who has a great toolset, free access but we built out a "private branded community" with them for our biotech high school students use. Working in groups on projects now allows us to connect all team members, all school projects and all schools with each other including their teachers, mentors and the organizers. Want to know more please contact me...see our front door access

I need advice, insight, suggestions - whatever you've got! I work for The Eighth Floor consortium and teach technology integration to area educators. We have a ning site.  We are trying to make our site a hub for the consortium and a place to go for information. We are having trouble getting any real momentum. Any ideas on how to jump start this with a little power?  

I know that sometimes nings are blocked at K-12 schools, so that is a challenge. How do we compete for a slice of the educator's time? I would love to see our members posting and sharing.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
