 Structure shapes behavior. Teachers should design the space to support learning in a flexible yet organized environment. Classrooms designs are shifting from being teacher-focused to a focus on active learning. The teacher is charged with motivating, exciting and encouraging their students to be engaged in a lesson or activity.

Have you considered having your students create a digital portfolio? As we move more and more to digital technology the ability to do this becomes easier, and the reasons you might do so seem to increase.A few of the reasons you might consider digital portfolio:

* students are able to  see their progress over time;

* it helps you as a teacher be able to track student progress more easily;

* it is easy to share with other teachers as students matriculate;

* they provide a tool for teacher and student to communicate.

One issue that has often stopped folks is how to save these portfolios. This post share four resources that you might consider using to do this: Evernote, Google Sites, WordPress and Edublogs. Each has a short explanation, oftem providing pros and cons.

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic)

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic) | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

"Parents are famous for their ability to reminisce about days gone by. It always starts the same way, “Back when I was your age, we used to walk 10 miles to school barefoot—in the snow.” Or, “I remember when school lunch cost a nickel.”

Thanks to the integration of technology, schools, and classrooms in particular, have changed so dramatically in recent years that some parents might not even recognize them. It’s a classic case of old school versus new school."

This infographic looks at how the integration of technology into schools has made major changes. Learn how many parents used software in school compared to their teenage students; how collaboration has changed; if technology is important to student success (parents view) and much more. If you have an upcoming Open House this might be an infographic that would elicit comments from parents.
