The answer to small district PD prayers?

Posted on March 25, 2011 at 2:35pm 1 Comment

I've recently been thinking hard about how to get quality professional development opportunities to the teachers in my very small one-school district.  Since we are tiny and don't have a great deal of money to spend on "name brand" workshops or speakers, nor do we have an unlimited pool of staff who are comfortable leading workshops, we really struggle to make PD meaningful.  I took my Moodle course with an…

Surfin' the Wave

I'm having a bit of an epiphany these days.  Online learning is more than just a cool tool; it's the future of education.  I'm not saying that all students are eventually going to receive all their learning sitting at a computer, but certainly the blended learning model makes a great deal of sense.  As educators, we know that we should be customizing learning experiences to each student's individual needs, but until recently it's been a real challenge to provide significant…

Practice Makes Perfect (maybe)

Posted on March 16, 2011 at 11:00am 0 Comments

So I find myself a bit anxious, asking myself, "What am I doing here?"  As a brand new blogger, I am embarrassed that I don't know how to do it properly.  This has long been a failing of mine and something that often has stopped me from diving into interesting new things.  I might not do it right the first time and therefore look foolish.  That's a crazy idea for an educator; we tell the kids all the time that it's…

Self-Regulation: Getting Our Students To Care

I think all educators can agree that we want our students to become better self-regulated learners. However, this is a daunting task for teachers. I've spent a great deal of time trying to teach my grade 6 students various self-regulation skills such as planning, goal-setting, self-monitoring, time management, self-control, and reflection, but in past years it hasn't quite "taken" the way I hoped it would. I talk about how important this skills are until I'm blue in the face and I usually get…See More

A Childhood Educator Is Becoming Commonplace In Teacher Training

School boards and individual teachers are seeking out new ways to improve and maintain their own learning process. Teachers with a passion for their career are routinely discovering innovative ways to brush up on skills, and to develop new methods for delivering information. Teachers know that children have a huge capacity for retaining knowledge, and that every child has their own unique way of grasping the information delivered in the classroom. A childhood educator is an expert in childhood…See More
