Tiziana Rosanna Iozzi's curator insight, September 11, 2013 1:37 AM

Un insegnante ha il ruolo di un mentore, è un modello, sa aiutare i ragazzi nelle difficoltà e li incoraggia a seguire i loro sogni... A chi di voi è capitata la fortuna di conoscerne almeno uno/a nella vita?

Darleana McHenry's curator insight, September 11, 2013 11:56 PM

I had the opportunity to tell my first grade teacher thank you 5 years ago. She actually had kept my first grade picture all these years. My teachers were great and school was my favorite place and I excelled there. So thanks to all the teachers that I did not get to thank. :-)

William Muller's curator insight, July 24, 2:44 PM

This is a very good example of a teacher engaging every student, the students doing most of the speaking; articulating what they see or understand, and having the students bring it together while using critical thinking skills to formulate their arguments to support their reasoning. Bravo to all teachers who step outside of the traditional...Bravo!

"There is a shortage of people who know how to program. These are high quality, high paying jobs. How do we encourage students to learn how to code? Learning to programming not only is a skill that is in high demand, it is also incredibly useful. We have all wished we had an app or a program that would do a particular thing that is specific to ourselves. I know some HTML and some JavaScript and Google Apps Script and it is amazing what you can do with just a little knowledge"
