I've created a livebinder that can hopefully be used as a valuable gifted education resource.

Hey Jennifer. Its great to see that you encourage your students to write. People hardly write these days and they dont even read as much as we used to. So as teachers we must encourage them to write.

If you want to entertain gifted students for literally hours, try the following two sites.

wordle.net can be used in so many ways. My students type vocabulary word lists, write poems, and create character trait posters.

piclits.com is absolutely AWESOME. It is a wonderful site for reluctant writers. My students amazed me with the poetry they created on this site.

Let me know if you find other ways to use these sites.

Thanks!

Methods: Tradition vs. Relevance

This morning I read a post from a higher education educator about the negative effects of Tech in lectures. The author was perplexed when he realized a great many students in his lecture hall were paying attention to Facebook, or attending to email during the course of a two-hour lecture. His school chose to ban tech devices from the lecture hall. Additionally, students were required to use nametags, so that the lecturer could address individual students with questions during the lecture. This…See More
