Clipping Magic is a great tool; the best online tool I have ever seen for removing an image's background to "cut out" the subject of the photo and create a png file with a transparent background. It is so easy that anyone can do it successfully, and the results are excellent. The once free tool is now a paid service. The prices are reasonable if it's a tool you use often.
In the following …

Bloom’s taxonomy has always been a part of my teaching experience. When I originally took my teacher education classes from Regis University back in 2003, Bloom’s Taxonomy felt like it was the new “buzz” word. We were given a copy of the pyramid and studied the verbs associated with it. Then, once I started teaching in 2006, it wasn’t brought up or focused on as much. I still used it because I really felt like it helped me differentiate my lessons…Continue

I have taught for 2 years now, and I have been learning about Marzano/Bloom for roughly the same amount of time. Both have developed a valuable tool that allows teachers to effectively design lessons to meet the needs of students. While the tools are not the end all/be all of teaching strategies, they do give insight into how students learn. Keeping that in mind, let’s take a look at what each has to offer in the classroom (mine specifically).

Once they have their sources, they need to put together the information into a background…Continue

Blooms, HOT, Digital Taxonomy all great indicators that education is continually transforming and moving forward.
Recently I taught a writing lesson and the kids were asked to publish as well. The writing was informational; however, the content was living organism. I tied this directly to science. I could have provided a guiding question, but instead I asked the students to create their…Continue

Teachers are hearing the terms “21st Century Classroom” and “21st Century Learning” a lot during trainings and within resources. Teachers need to understand what these terms mean in order to fully grasp the concepts behind them.
