We hope this guide will be useful to any teacher confronting the challenges of introducing new technologies into the K-12 classroom in meaningful, inventive, productive, creative, and connected ways.

 

For as long as it proves to be productive, we’ll leave this open as a public Google Doc and we invite others to add their own best practices to this participatory document.

I find that students should learn alot more about things that are relevant in the real world, In highnschool and middle school I learned alot of information that I will never again use in my life. For example; I have not used algebra since I learned it in middle school.My point is I havent used these things since I was young and it seems to be useless knowledge. I would have prefered to learn more about money and how to budget it.

Ethics, Morals, and Values Central in Leadership

Ethics, Morals, and Values Central in Leadership | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
Leadership experts in the K-12 field Jill Berkowicz and Ann Myers write about challenges and possibilities for administrators in the 21st century.

 

Education is an inherently moral matter. It is moral because people develop (or fail to develop) morally as well as physically, emotionally, and intellectually. It is moral because teaching--helping to shape other people's minds, sensibilities, and capabilities -raises deep questions of purpose, values, and responsibility.

 

It is moral because it involves the relationship between one generation and another, a relationship that helps determine the direction and quality of human life" (p. 152). Therein lies our uppermost responsibility. We must stay in touch with our conscience and allow it to inform our decisions.
