First period, Y13 Physics. I gave them a presentation template in googledocs, with the main summary headings so they wouldn't go too far off topic. Then, I got them to research and find answers and summarise them and enter their results into the presentation. We had three laptops in the room between six of us, so some people were using the internet while others used books or summarised the ideas that the people using the internet were coming up with. Sadly, no one else had a gmail account, so… Continue

July in Iowa = a BAJILLION fireflies!
I don't care who you are or how old you are, fireflies are amazing. Our farmyard was full of them tonight and I just couldn't get enough of watching them flicker on and off like a symphony of Christmas lights.
When I typed in "fireflies" in the search box of www.teachertube.com, this came up. (I bet this dude's a reader!) Enjoy!
BTW, I know, I know, fireflies… Continue

I have merged my Education-themed weblogs. It was a marriage that seemed inevitable. In reality, I was testing the waters with Typepad and Wordpress (self hosted) and Wordpress won. The content on both blogs was similar and was centered around provoking thought about school/teaching practices at this particular point in the evolution of Education.
I will continue this work, though, with a greater intensity and focus as I am no longer "split" by the… Continue

I've been researching the Internet and found many tools that are useful. Still there's the situation at my school where we have classrooms made for 26-30 pupils and they're only equipped with three computers. I need not say that this poses problems.
I've chosen this place to post my blog on since it feels right for me.
Currently I work with teenagers 13-16 year-olds teaching English and French and trying to incorporate the latest ICT in my… Continue

After spending the last six months actively reading blogs and beginning to advocate for other teachers at my school to begin to try to incorporate them into their classes, it's really high time for me to begin blogging myself. I'm feeling a bit intimidated since I really enjoy reading about what others are doing in their classrooms and their schools, but don't… Continue

With all the demands on educators now, what motivates young people to go into education? When I started years ago there were no state tests, no standards based education and teachers could be creative. The public (parents) tended to support and respect teachers. It seems that now days that is no longer the case. Why do you want to become a teacher or why do you want to stay in teaching?
