It all starts with you...

On any given day, educators experience the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. How an educator reacts and responds to these highs and

lows can often dictate the overall mood of the day. In my short 6 years

as an educator, I have learned several things as it pertains to

Changing the culture of professional development...

Most students from across the country have returned to schools refreshed, recharged, and rejuvenated to continue their journey through

the educational process. As students use their summer break to relax

and simply be kids, teachers and administrators utilize their time to

both improve and develop their skills as educators. The summer provides

an excellent opportunity for all educators to refine and enhance their

abilities as… Continue

Reinventing yourself = survival...

My first official working day at school was today...I witnessed ups and downs, heard screams of joy, and whirlpools of pessimism and

discontent. As I thought more about the "happy" people, and the not so

supportive of my idea, he also provided the book club with the financial

backing to purchase almost one thousand dollars worth of books.

7 proven strategies that WILL engage your students...

Over the last 5 years as an educator, I have learned so much about student motivation and student engagement. Recently, I started reflecting on my current practices and strategies I have used to engage

my students over the years. The program I am with has doubled in size

from roughly 140 students to over 280, so I feel confident these

strategies can, and will work.

Good ideas spread...and win - what are your good ideas?

As mentioned in previous posts, I have really tried to utilize my summer to better myself. I wanted to refine my skills as a progressive

educator who is able to meet the needs of students in a meaningful and

influential way. As such, I have concentrated on new ways to integrate

social media and technology into my classroom instruction. All of the

ideas and suggestions I plan on using started out as ideas. In

particular, they… Continue

Of Mobile Devices, Apps, Games and Casual Mobile Learning

With fresh inspiration from a course I just finished here at Stanford on "Casual Learning Technologies for the iPhone" in which we designed casual apps for kids and adults, I've authored a 2-part article for Smartbean. The first is a brief discussion of research on the power of learning through games (including Gee's principles on "good learning" with well-designed games) -… Continue

The Marketplace

The ease of use, access, and availability of wikis have made them a favourite option for teacher's hoping to create an online space to share with their students.

Recommended Books for Teachers

This blog was originally posted on The Freshman Transition Network.



Here are some great books to consider reading and/or sharing with your students.


Over the years I have been amazed by the number of educators who don't read books related to our field. We recognize the importance of our students reading but then overlook how important it is for us. Perhaps part of the reason is that many books on…
