This has been a busy, final week at school. Working full time and taking online classes has proven to be a tad bit difficult. I am so ready to actually have a license, but until then, I truck on. This week I learned some valuable information on how to better my classes and keep my students involved in their education and updated in the field of technology. I am excited to say that many of the things I have learned so far have inspired me to "technologically update" the way I…Continue

In September I started working with Alec Couros and his many co-conspirator on #…Continue

1. Describe what you learned from exploring this resource. Be thorough in your response.
This site was actually kind of weird. It did not help me to understand how this could really be used in a classroom setting, other than the fact that you could do mapping for story lines. Though the site was interesting, it was not…

I am writing this as part of a class assignment. My mission (whether I chose to accept it or not) was to conduct a web search of a classroom technology of my choice, then I was to list three ways of integrating the technology with classroom teaching, add some ideas of my own, and list any other technologies that would be needed along with the one I chose to research.
I chose to research mini laptops, simply because I don’t know very much about them. Apparently, there are teachers…

This week I did a lot of research over the different uses of technology in the classroom. There were many different resources that seems to be immediately helpful. I especially enjoyed learning about the podcasts and tumble books. Both of these new technologies seemed very innovative. Though they were both more interesting than the rest, the idea of pod casts were much newer to me. Though the websites were very easy to maneuver and gather information, I think that it goes beyond that. To use…Continue

What is the most important factor that contributes to student success? Teaching.
Educators know this, but implementing practices that support excellent teaching is often harder, especially in school systems that must address myriad issues that frankly go beyond education.
In a recent Asia Society study, Stanford professor and education expert Linda Darling-Hammond examines teacher quality policies in Singapore, Melbourne, and Toronto and offers advice for what policymakers can…Continue

El aprendizaje-servicio hace que se dé a la comunidad. Hay varias maneras para hacer el servicio voluntario. Se puede servir la comida para las personas sin hogar, ayudar construir las casas, o simplemente ofrecer cualquier servicio necesario; no importa el servicio. Lo más importante es que se ayude a las personas en necesidad. Este servicio de voluntad tiene muchos beneficios para la persona que lo hace. Personalmente, gané el respeto para la comunidad hispana y aprendí más sobre la…Continue

As I continue to come up with a definition of hybrid courses or at the very least how to put adjectives to the noun I'm trying to get a handle on, here's a first attempt. What do you think?
A Definition: Hybrid courses leverage the best of what traditional face-to-face instruction offers with the flexibility, power, and accessibility of online instruction. Merely taking elements of both and throwing them together into a course does not embody the best…Continue

My specialism is Fine Art and I have recently had a lesson observation. Points for development were related to the size of my class. I was noted that because of the large class size (34) it made quieter communication less likely and occasional off task behaviour more probable. Secondly, the individual contributions of individual contributions was limited by the presence of 30 learners. Class size isn't down to me, but I still need suggestions to deal with it.

Kids are natural explorers. When left to their own devices, they can turn a cardboard box into a rocket ship exploring space, a fort to fend off attackers or a hundred other things. To a child, creativity comes naturally and the possibilities in the world are endless. Their answer to the…Continue

Por eso los autores del articulo creen que muchos trabajadores sociales son también culpables en participar en la opresión y la discriminación. Porque los trabajadores sociales trabajan con personas que tienen poco poder e influencia, es importante…Continue
