Research is a process. It is a continuum of stages that together make up a research plan. Below is a tentative sketch of what we think are the seven important steps of a research plan. For each of these stages we featured a short collection of web tools to help you carry it out. We have also created a poster capturing the steps and tools we covered here. You can download, share and use the poster the way you want as long as you use it for educational purposes.

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - TeachThought PD

12 Rules Of Great Teaching - TeachThought PD | TEFL & Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Recently, I’ve been thinking of the universal truths in teaching. Students should be first. Don’t always start planning with a standard. Questions matter more than answers. Trust is a currency of a human classroom. 


So I thought I’d gather twelve of them to start with. The idea of “good teaching” is an idea we get at a variety of different ways, So then, here are some rules we might consider when making sense of this idea of what makes a teacher great. Thanks to Sylvia Duckworth for the great illustration, who went all out and added all 15.

Great learning platform.

Juan Camilo Largo's curator insight, September 1, 12:45 PM
Kiddom is a website recommended by Nik Peachey for several reasons. First, it enhances the planning and performance of classes by putting all your materials in the same place, which works similar to a cloud. It also allows you to create a class environment online. Therefore, you are able to adjust the setting for the class you want to create and adapt it to the courses you will add to the platform. It has the option to select the subject, grade, and students when you are creating the class. In addition to it, Kiddom offers you the possibility to analize your students' learning process through easy diagrams and statistics. Those are some of the great features that we can take advantage of when using Kiddom.
