For those of you in colleges of education, how early do students begin to get actual classroom time? In year one, two? Is it a functioning role or a passive role? I am curious as to how others are doing it, thinking of changing to improve the experiences of teacher education candidates befroe they hit the real world.

I'm doing a list of all free websites where we can download any video (on a wiki page)
to share with my Bulgarian colleagues. This is a gloggie
I made in English on the same topic. Sharing it with you I'd like to get more information about the similar websites you have been using on that purpose. Thanks in advance!

By “productivity” tools and resources, I am referring to tools that can help teachers get their jobs done more efficiently or effectively, at no cost (beyond the effort required to use the resources, of course). There are so many of these types of tools out on the… Continue

Well, here is yet another online social networking sight to sign up for, manipulate to reflect the real me, and try to manage and organize on a consistent basis. I like the ability to change the color schemes and fonts, as well as post photos and video that fit my interests.

By introducing a 1:1 laptop scheme, schools can capture the interest of these “digital natives” and enhance learning and… Continue
