posted by: Jill | July 07, 2011, 11:32 am
Last week I posted about my week at ISTE, a fabulous education technology conference, and my fabulous colleague, Alix, posted about Twitter for Teachers. I was elated that she wrote such a timely article because I had just attended a workshop about how Twitter is changing professional development and teacher interaction throughout the world. (Here is a basic video about Twitter. And here is a video that explains why it's beneficial for companies, organizations, and groups of professionals, like teachers.)   Continue Reading...

Twitter for Teachers
posted by: Alix | June 27, 2011, 10:57 am
The internet has revolutionized everything in our lives, from paying bills to shopping and everything in between. Education is now well on its way to being revolutionized by online learning with teachers nationwide taking advantage of new, emerging and often free internet resources. One service in particular that is gaining popularity among teachers is Twitter, the micro-blogging site that allows users to communicate via 140 character transmissions.   Continue Reading...

Ever re-arrange a lesson, or lessons, because it turns out that the computer lab is booked solid? Ever have your excitement for a student-driven internet search quelled because, once again, the computer lab isn't available? How about wishing that you could offer students additional material to assist them when struggling or to challenge them when their sailing through the curriculum? Or what about students who don't turn in their worksheet because they "lost" it? I'm sure you've said yes to at least one of these questions. The solution to these difficulties, in many cases, could be that little box at right—the QR Code.

Discussing Osama Bin Laden with Students
posted by: Jill | May 04, 2011, 12:18 pm
I was teaching on September 11, 2001 when the Towers fell. In fact, my student's brother worked at the Twin Towers. (Sidenote: the brother escaped safely from the buildings before it collapsed). It was a long day of teaching. As eighteen and nineteen year-olds, the students wanted to talk about what was happening and it just seemed right to put the current lesson on hold and teach another lesson that day. Considering that we didn't have much information and my iPhone had yet to be invented, there were a lot of questions unanswered.   Continue Reading...

My decision to travel outside of the United States as a twenty-year old quickly became a time to observe what education looked like throughout the world. On every trip or study abroad experience I did my best to experience education in the country being visited. And upon my return from every trip I realized just how much the experience broadened my horizons (pardon the cliche) and helped me develop many content-rich lesson plans that intrigued my students.   Continue Reading...
