Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 7, 2014 4:24 AM

I like Edmodo as a tool for younger students but I'm not sure I want to introduce this into my classroom at the moment. I'm happy with how my learners are interacting and progressing in the online world. 

Anna Davis's curator insight, September 9, 2014 1:10 PM

I love Edmodo and have used it with my students.  I can easily upload documents, pictures, videos and share them with my students.

What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom

What the flip? Exploring technologies to support a flipped classroom | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it

10 Characteristics of Professional Learning That Shifts Practice

10 Characteristics of Professional Learning That Shifts Practice | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Across diverse districts I have asked teachers how they like to learn and what they want out of their professional learning opportunities. Over and over I hear the same kinds of responses and wishes for how they could learn.  There is a deep desire to develop their practice, not just be talked to but be inspired, valued, and pushed to take their practice to the next level.  To help teachers shift their practices and make learning experiences for their students the best they can be, these are the desired characteristics of professional learning that shifts practices:
