Out of Our Minds

Recently as a staff we were asked to read the book Out of Our Minds by Sir Ken Robinson.  I have to say the book supported the idea of keeping creativity in school, but also ignited the inspiration I needed to start to think more out of the box.  I need to develop a shape for myself and how it will define me.  Do I want to inspire others by my actions or try to be innovated in creating something so amazing for my…

Have you ever heard the term of "21st century teachers of English"?

That's why, in today's…

First Class Review - 28 Aug 2012

As an educator, it's important to be reflective of my practice, not for the sake of boasting, but for the sake of being able to recall what went well, what worked - and definitely how things could be improved for the next time I teach this particular session of CPED2023 for Johnson University.

I spend what my wife probably thinks is an inordinate amount of time pining over and re-examining my course content, flow and learning…

Behavior Management Tool



       Most of the teachers quit their job because of trouble-maker  students and noise level in  the classroom. As a teacher , I have tried many ways to make my classes quiter.

Reflections on Student Engagement: Don’t “Zsa Zsa Gabor” Them

"I call everyone 'Darling' because I can't remember their names."

-Zsa Zsa Gabor

A few years ago, my fledgling kid brother walked into his first class at Central Michigan University. It was in one of those stadium-sized lecture halls—you know the kind: a wall of vertical-sliding chalkboards and a battalion of green, first-year…

Google Apps

I have been using Google and Google Aps in my classroom and with my students for the past two years.  Each year I use Google, I am able to incorporate more of the Apps into my teaching.  My district has issued each student a Google account.  This has made the difference in using Google Apps with my students. 

Last year I utilized Google Docs in many aspects of my teaching.  I started the year with basis documents and taught my students how to share these with me.  From there the…

Os medos na produção de um TCC

Um trabalho de conclusão de curso é um caminho no qual toda e qualquer produção científica toda aluno de curso superior deve passar,seja ele de graduação ou pós graduação.

E os medos na produção são sempre os mesmos:

  • Não tenho hábito de leitura e um TCC é necessário ler bastante.
  • O meu orientador tem muito conhecimento e acho que o que ele quer que eu produza fica fora da minha…

Google Apps

Google apps is a really neat tool that I think can help me as an educator.  I can use it to have students collaborate on assignments.  It is an efficient way for multiple people to work on one assignment.  It eliminates checking email and attaching documents.  Since it is a live application, it is automatically saved and updated so that anyone with access can view immediately.  I think that the work processing and the presentation features would be the most beneficial for students to use for…

How could Google Apps help you to be more efficient as an educator?

Google Apps will be extremely useful to me as an educator. My school just got an education account to Google Apps this week and is encouraging all of us to use it in our teaching on a regular basis. As a literacy department, we have decided that all of our students are going to use Google to create blogs where they will reflect on what they have read every other week. They will also post to one another on their blogs,…

Web 2.0 needs innovative strategies for learning

Web 2.0 tools in this times are amazing in education today, but don´t reduce the misconceptions of how to learn by ICT in school or university spaces, or maybe in virtual environments where their innovative apps and gadgets contemplate the real motivation for use the information or just operate the digital resources in different ways like pedagogical models or similar approximations close to equal performances like as presencial spaces of learning, all this is possible if the web 2.0 users…
