The Exhaustion of the American Teacher | apbioatparkdale | Scoop.it
With the 2012-2013 American school year still in its infancy, it's worthwhile to note that the people doing the actual educating are down in the dumps. Many feel more beaten down this year than last.

Sir Ken Robinson: Creativity is not an "add-on" but calls for radical change in our schools

Schools are under pressure to teach creativity and conceptual thinking to students to prepare them for the 21st-century workplace.

 

But at a recent imagination summit in Los Angeles, internationally recognized education expert Sir Ken Robinson warned against the tendency to treat creativity as something you can "add on" to the classroom.

 

In this video, Robinson discusses his encounters with education officials who hope he'll "recommend a creativity hour, on a Friday, after lunch," as a solution. But that's not enough, he says: with a 30 percent high school dropout rate, "if you take the idea of creativity seriously," it "requires radical change."

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Good, Free iPad Timeline Apps for History Students

Free Technology for Teachers: Three Good, Free iPad Timeline Apps for History Students | apbioatparkdale | Scoop.it

"As a student I loved looking at timelines in my social studies textbooks. As a history teacher I still love timelines. Timelines in a web browser or as a stand-alone app can offer students more information than a paper-based timeline. Recently, I spent a little time looking for free timeline apps to use on my iPad. While there are a lot of paid apps I didn't find too many free ones that I liked, but I did find three. Here are the three that I like."
