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

This will be my first trip to NECC, but I've attended other conferences in the past. My favorites are CUE (Computer Using Educators Conference, in Palm Springs), and the ASCD (Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) conference I attended in Chicago. Good times and a wealth of learning opportunities.
Here are a few tips to share for your conference…Continue
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 So far, I have used only PPT and I know that is hopelessly outdated.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?

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.
I’m very excited about it since I don’t get to do too many conferences abroad plus I have a real soft spot to Canada (I’m actually heading to Calgary for my Summer holidays later this year). My Canadian friends have advised me to bring my thermals as it may be rather chilly in… Continue
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)
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.

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.
