Less Is More-"Let's Start A Just Five Movement!"

Since change is difficult, and many schools do not have the resources, nor do all teachers have the training or the confidence to incorporate technology in their classrooms, why not choose JUST FIVE Web tools or tech software resources every school must have NOW! For example, we have established that all American schools have at least one or more computers because our society entered the digital age decades ago. Education has not caught up!…

"Apply directly to the Forehead!" My eTech Ohio Conference 2011 Reflections

I had the opportunity to attend the eTech Ohio Conference (#oetch11) on Monday, January 31, 2011. It’s a three day event, but with budget and time constraints, I was only able to attend one day. I am excited to attend each year, hoping to take away at least one new idea I can share with my staff. This year, I heard two presentations that were inspiring, encouraging, and practical. However, I will only reflect one the first one in this post.

The keynote presenter was Peter…

Revisiting Segregation

Most of the time, I read a news story about something in education, and I think about it for about five minutes before letting it go, chalking it up to just another new smudge on the complicated stained glass window that is public education.  The other day, though, I read the article “In N.C., a new battle on school integration," and I thought of little else during my…

Student Created Readers Theater

Student Created Readers Theater



I’m trying to create more brain-friendly lessons based on what I am learning in my BrainSMART classes. One point of research suggests that students do much better when their subjects are integrated as much as possible. That gave me another bright idea…… Continue

What should busy administrators be reading (or watching)?

This is my first time participating in Leadership Day 2010, and I must say I am really excited to be a part of this fantastic movement. As educators, I would argue we all need to be inspirational and progressive leaders in our own right; however in education's current form we have building administrators and central office administrators as our leaders. Their jobs are extremely difficult, and I can honestly say most people have no idea how much time… Continue

Full Circle of Integration

Integration, "is an act or instance of combining into an integral whole, " by the definition provided by dictionary.com. However, what does integration mean to education today? After a conversation I had with a friend last week in my opinion, integration has come full circle in the world of education...



Last week as I sat having dinner and conversing with a friend she began to ask about how I was coming along in my Teacher Ed. program here at the university, (by the way my friend is… Continue

Stop 20th Century Thinking

In the 21st Century our approach to education can and should be very different from previous centuries. The basic skills we teach are pretty much the same, but the tools we have to use require a different approach, as well as additional and very different literacies from centuries past. Information once difficult to find, maintain, and disseminate is now found by a voice command to a mobile device. The model of the teacher as the content expert standing in the front of the room, lecturing to…See More
