Love the visual representation of the shifts.  They are, themselves, indicative of a shift.  Wonder if there is a poster or .pdf of this.  would be great to have as a reminder right next to my desk.  5 and 6, in particular, speak to Discovery Education's mission with STEM.

The Connected Educator's Hotspot: I thought we decided that

The Connected Educator's Hotspot: I thought we decided that | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Had a great conversation with some fellow administrators this weekend.  We were reflecting on how sometimes people have trouble accepting a change in practice.  While I have sharedposts before on how to go about making changes in practice or procedures to create buy-in from staff, the discussion we had was geared toward what to do about staff that have not seemed to embrace the change and keep bringing it up in a negative manner.

 

 It's funny, depending on your perspective of course, how the little things can seem to be such a large distraction to your day as a building leader.  

 

The change in practice, one of my Tweeps shared, was a small practice that had taken place in the past, but it was one of those procedural things that shared information about student and was now easily handled through technology with the use of the Student Information System the district uses.  

 

However, staff members were used to having this information delivered to them daily.  I know, many may say this seems to be a first world problem, but as a building leader it becomes more than that.

Let's encourage all our kids to own and tell their stories! We begin by telling stories we learn from others, then we start making up our own. Next we tell our story to ourselves and those we love. When we construct the narrative of our journey we gain agency over our days, our experiences and our lives. Tell your 'own' story to 'own' your life! This is the very definition of self advocacy.--Lou

Ecco cosa consiglia il collega d'oltreoceano: 

Stay Local > cerca delle occasioni di formazione/ condivisione vicino a casa
Connect Online > controlla la rete con le sue risorse
Attend an EdCamp > frequenta dei seminari (che chiamano edcamp...ne organizziamo uno???) 
Present or Volunteer > proporsi come autore o volontario nei congressi, worksho ecc: potrebbero esserci delle facilitazioni
Pick Up a Book & Connect with the Author > usare la rete (loro dicono Twitter) per chiacchierare con l'autore del libro che abbiamo comprato
Invest in Yourself > Joe investe il 2-5% del suo stipendio in formazione...ma quanto guadagna (verrebbe da chiedergli?).

The World’s Largest Repository of Free Online Learning Tutorials | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it

Here’s a common scenario. Someone emails and asks about an elearning tutorial I have on the blog. It’s not always easy to find the specific tutorial buried in a given post. In fact, there are many times I either forgot that I had created that tutorial or I can’t recall where it’s at either. I know. It’s part of getting older.

 

Today I am going to fix that. I have listed every blog post that has a video tutorial that shows how to create something related to online learning. So, if you’re just getting started with building online learning courses (or new to the blog), now you have a handy resource with links to all sorts of rapid elearning tutorials.
