Using Google Forms to Reach Out to your School Community - 2 views

  •  
    "It's one of Google's most versatile offerings and one that educators have found endless applications for. Google Forms can be used for anything from assessment to just-in-time learning.  In this module we want to focus on some of the out-of-classroom uses of Google Forms and look at how you can use it to communicate and learn from parents, friends and the broader school community."

Creating a Community of Learners With Coding - Edudemic - 1 views

  •  
    "Professional coders work collaboratively, and rarely does a computer scientist create a program solely on their own. Every successful programming project evolves as a result of Iterations of code, the merging of ideas, and the contributions of the individual team members. Not only does coding empower students to think logically and critically, to collaborate, and to create meaningful learning, but it also provides them an authentic opportunity to develop critical communication and collaboration skills."

Community_Made with Code - 0 views

  •  
    "We started Made with Code because even though increasingly more aspects in our lives are powered by technology, women aren't represented in the companies, labs, research, creative arts, design, organizations, and boardrooms that make technology happen.

    If girls are inspired to see that Computer Science can make the world more beautiful, more usable, more safe, more kind, more innovative, more healthy, and more funny, then hopefully they will begin to contribute their essential voices. As parents, teachers, organizations, and companies we're making it our mission to creatively engage girls with code.

    Today, less than 1% of girls are majoring in CS.

    Tomorrow, we can make that number go up."

Creating a Community for Students Blogging in Math | Mathlete Blogs - 10 views

  •  
    "Over the summer, I have been blogging about Redefining Learning in the Mathematics Classroom through the use of individual student blogs. After hearing about the great things going on in Kristen Wideen's classroom and her use of QuadBlogging for creating a Primary Blogging Community, I have been inspired to attempt modifying a similar approach for blogging in mathematics."

Building Community Activities Just for You | Blogging Through the Fourth Dimension - 4 views

  •  
    "Every year I try to have various community building activities for the kids to do on those first few days of school. And while I detest ice breakers, in 5th grade, we do like the occasional get to know me activity. Though the years I have used various scavenger hunts, time capsules, and bingo games to get to know them a bit better, to get them to know each other, and also for me to keep until the end of the year. Then when summer beckons and we cannot believe that the year is over, I pull out the forgotten letters, the time capsules, the about me's, and we reminisce and we laugh and we shake our heads at the answers we gave so long ago.

Cultivating a Learning Community with BYOT | BYOT Network - 0 views

  •  
    "A goal of the BYOT classroom is to develop resilient students who own the learning process, just as they own their personal technology tools. Resiliency is the ability to overcome challenges and bounce back, and it is essential to a person's long term success and happiness. One way to develop resiliency is to cultivate a learning community or a community of practice that includes the teacher as well as the students."

Twitter is the best education PD, Period! And it's free! - South Euclid, OH, United Sta... - 4 views

  •  
    "Since I was wake at 5 AM on a Saturday (don't ask), I figured it was a good time to update my Personal Learning Network on Twitter. For years, I've been saying Twitter is the best free professional development tool available; I even teach an online course at two colleges on the subject."
