Teaching Technique-The Reverse Field Trip

Teaching Technique_ the Reverse Field Trip.

I was assigned to a new school. On my first day the principal said. “I have heard of you, you like to take the students on field trips, there will be no field trips at this school.” I have never met the principal before, but his comments did not affect me whatsoever.

My concern is how can I best educate my students? I knew that the lecture method is the technique that is least likely to achieve the results I wanted. I was guilty of the… Continue

Using technology in FL classroom

If anyone has any quick tips for using technology in the FL classroom, please let me know. So far, I have used only PPT and I know that is hopelessly outdated. I would like to use Ipods. Has anyone done a podcast? Have the students responded well to this method?

Teacher2Teacher Conference – Canada 2010

Just a little bit of advance notice, and some exciting news for me! If you are in or near Alberta, Canada next March then I will be speaking at the Teacher2Teacher conference on 18th and 19th March 2010.

Google Squared in the Classroom

Google have recently rolled out a new twist on their search engine in their continued bid for world domination – Google Squared.

Google Squared takes a category and creates a starter ’square’ of information, automatically fetching and organizing facts from across the web and producing them in spreadsheet format. You can then add additional columns and rows to this grid of information (if more info is available)

Powerful Images to Give Lessons Punch

One of the benefits of having an Interactive Whiteboard in the classroom (or even just a data projector) is the opportunity to display full colour high quality images instead of grainy acetates or posters. With a powerful image you can really add some “punch” to your lesson. Put images up while students are coming into the room – use them as part of a lesson starter – stimulate questions.

Teaching Technique-Call and Response

Teaching Technique-Call and Response

This is not a NEW Idea. But I have not seen it used in Public Schools. It worked marvelously

for me. I encourage all teachers to give it a try. It Works!

First a little history of the concept.

You have probably seen (on TV) an army group marching, whereas the leader calls out a verbal

command and the entire group responds with some verbal reply.

You have seen a football and/or a basketball team get in a circle,… Continue

How do you use Web-based curriculum mapping at your school to help develop and assess constituent satisfaction?

In my research, There are many layers involved in Web-based curriculum mapping. I haven't found any dangers or reasons why parents might have concerns for their childrens' safety. I see it as a way to enhance the relationship with parent and keep community aware of local curriculum and national policies.
