I would love to hear from people how they make time to plan and keep up with feedback when doing SBG.
I have an interest in participatory action research (PAR), so I would like to discuss how PAR can meet the individual goals of the teacher (through problem setting and solving) while at the same time address school-wide issues as well (e.g., improving student achievement).  How do administrators and faculty work together to make it all happen?  How does formal data collection, analysis, and reporting reach the appropriate audiences so that really change is more likely to take place?

I have a couple:

 

a)  What components does an online learning course have to have to be successful for students?

 

b)  If you're moving away from traditional textbooks, are e-textbooks the answer?  Or is creating your own curricula through an LMS a better solution?

Love question b. Don't have a textbook for my 11th grade physics class and want to go route of creating a class wiki that will substitute.

Anyone can help with identifying the common denominators in Understanding by Design, Teaching for Understanding & Project Based Learning in the crafting of a curriculum to teach Multiliteracies in an EL classroom? I see the goodness in each of the 3 frameworks and would love to weave them together, but need a little help with it! 

How about inviting #ntchat new teachers to #edchat with all the veteran educators that typically populate there and have a live question and answer.  New teachers fire out questions, concerns they may have (open forum) and veterans respond.  Or veterans post questions for new teachers to answer.  Could also encourage every educator to bring a new teacher to twitter to the chat.  Would help expand the educational twitterverse!

How do you get your administrators to consider looking into a Blended Learning model for your school?  I can see the benefits of using a Blended Learning model, but I am not sure how to propose this to my administrators.

Top 10 Digital Platforms that Turn Teachers into Mentors

The current generations of educators have a huge burden on their shoulders. They are the carriers of change. They have to encourage project-based learning, greater collaboration between the students, insightful discussions… the list goes on and on.Out of all trends in education, this is the most important one: teachers are being transformed into mentors. Since the role of the educator is changed, everything else changes, too: the teaching methods, the testing and grading, the way we pay…See More

"Vivi,  I noticed that you are conducting Flip Classroom teaching style. I was wondering was it difficult to set up and are you the only teacher in your school that is doing it?"
