In Honor of Mrs. Fitz, Math Teacher

In Honor of Mrs. Fitz, Math Teacher | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

Yesterday afternoon I got a phone call from my mom that I wasn’t expecting.  She told me that my beloved 6th Grade Math teacher had passed away.  I was completely shocked.  She wasn’t sick, we wasn’t old, how could this happen.  Then I thought about all the things that she has done for me in my life as a future educator.

 

I can still remember having her as a 6th grade homeroom  and math teacher.  She is the one that taught me that being a good teacher is a mix of being crazy and serious.  As a 6th grader she taught me how much fun math can be, and I will never forget all of those function tables that we had to do.  Having her as a Language Arts teacher was wonderful as well.  She taught me the ....

Cyndi Danner-Kuhn's insight:

Please read the full story on, Rachelle McGehee's blog.  Rachelle was a student of mine this semester and is going to be a teacher ver soon.  This is a wonderful tribute about her favorite Math teacher.  Nice work Rachelle, and I hope she sends this to the family, when my husband, a teacher and coach passed, these were the kinds of things that got me through and made me realize how many lives teacher impact.

I first started learning about the Maker Movement in education and makerspaces in late 2013.  Since then, I’ve been using this page to compile and curate some of the best articles, videos, blogs, books and other resources that have helped me along the way.  My hope is that you will consider this a go-to resource as you progress along your own Maker journey.  No matter whether you’re just getting started with makerspaces or are looking to grow your program, there’s something here for you.

Why We Need Creative Classrooms (A Manifesto) - A.J. JULIANI

Why We Need Creative Classrooms (A Manifesto) - A.J. JULIANI | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
A little over a year ago, John Spencer and I tossed around an idea for a book called The Creative Classroom.  Given our combined experience with design thinking (as educators, leaders, and people who actively engage in creative work), we planned out a solid book on the topic. We wrote the kind of book we thought education publishers would want us to submit. It was decent. It was informative. But then Dave Burgess contacted us and said, “I’m not interested in an education book. I’m interested in a manifesto. I’m interested in a bold statement telling the world the heart and soul of what you are about.”

Dave encouraged us to make this book our own – to write the kind of book that we would have wanted to read as teachers. He also wanted this book to be fully ours, including John’s sketches throughout and on the design of the cover. But more importantly, he encouraged us to abandon the idea of writing a book we were “supposed” to write and instead write the book we felt we needed to write.

And that’s exactly what we did. John and I tossed the outline. In fact, we scrapped the entire first draft. We focused on a single idea: that every child deserves a creative classroom and that design thinking can help make that happen in every classroom with every child. We dove into research. We asked hard questions. We interviewed tons of teachers doing amazing things. We fine-tuned the LAUNCH Cycle, adding some key components often missing in design thinking. We ended up with the book that needed to be written and something I am truly proud of authoring with John:

LAUNCH: Using Design Thinking to Boost Creativity and Bring Out the Maker in Every Student.
