Forget Guide on the Side...Students Need a Guide on the Ride - A.J. JULIANI - 4 views

  •  
    "If we look at our students' learning stories as shared journeys that we take an active role in, then we are more than a guide on the side.

    We are guides on the ride.
    We are active participants in this adventure, and learn just as much as our students do throughout the process.

    When students are empowered to craft their own learning stories and go on shared learning journeys, they'll often take the chance to dramatically impact their own life (and the lives of others) through what they make, create, design, and explore."

5 Ways Teachers Can Have a Work-Life Balance - STEM JOBS - 3 views

  •  
    "Educators never get a break. Oftentimes they see their students in their community, grade papers and plan lessons, and become emotionally invested in the lives of each of their students - all outside of classroom hours. Children of teachers can sometimes feel they rank below their parents' other "kids" at times. To avoid burnout and keep yourself happy at work and at home, remind yourself that teachers can have a work-life balance and follow these tips for creating it."

100 Must-Read Books For and About Teachers - 1 views

  •  
    "May is an important month for teachers. Standardized testing kicks in gear, decisions are being made about next year's budget, and, of course, Teacher Appreciation Week. After ten years in the classroom, I've discovered that the best Teacher Appreciation gifts tend to be free- handwritten notes from students or words of encouragement from veteran teachers.

    My gift to you is this roundup of advice from voices in every academic discipline, as well as a heavy sprinkling of books about fictional teachers. There are some classics, some hot new titles, and a few books that might push you out of your comfort zone. Whether you are trying to up your game in a certain subject, study theory about different learning styles, or simply read a story about someone else surviving the classroom for a change, you'll find something in this list of 100 must-read books for and about teachers."

The Language Of The Maker Movement: 38 Terms For Teachers - 1 views

  •  
    "As the maker movement in culture moves from MacGyver jokes and what Noah did when Allie left him in The Notebook to something with a bit more academic and cognitive credibility, it has also begun to creep in to the education space.

    As with any niche, there is specialized language-jargon-that may keep things murky for you. The 38 terms below by no means represent an exhaustive collection. (There are dozens of gadgets, circuit boards, and digital, robotic, and electrical wizardry we left on the cutting room flow.) But for most teachers in most circumstances, it should serve as a nice starting points."

The Real Reason Teachers and Leaders are Overwhelmed - A.J. JULIANI - 3 views

  •  
    "What is true is that change is constant. It's also getting exponentially quicker. This is not only in education, but in many fields of work. It's taken a while for change to pick up the speed with which we now see it in the classroom, but it has always been there.

    So, how do we handle this as teachers and school leaders? How can we keep the frustration and desperation from boiling over and hurting all potential progress? More importantly how can we make sure the frustration and desperation does not trickle down to our students and impact their learning experience in a negative way?

    Well, we can start with these guiding beliefs:"

Free Technology for Teachers: 21 Real World Math Lessons for High School Students - 2 views

  •  
    "Getting to teach economics lessons is one of my favorite things about being a social studies teacher. In economics lessons high school students start to see how many of the math concepts, logic concepts, and political theory they've learned can apply to them in the "real world" after high school. Econ Ed Link is a great resource for lesson plans, videos, and interactive activities for teaching economics concepts. They recently published an updated list of their Math In the Real World lesson plan library.

    Math In the Real World lesson plans include activities to teach students how to analyze business profit and loss, how the stock market works, and how distribution of income can influence government policies. The Math In the Real World lesson plans also include activities that have a more personal appeal to students. Those lesson plans include building credit, building a savings, and the dangers of payday loan schemes. The payday loan lesson plan is one that has previously been featured here on Free Technology for Teachers."
