Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 22, 2:58 PM

These strategies are the essential foundation of what all good teachers do.  Every article and book that I have read about school improvement and effective teaching seems for focus on these same strategies.  We know it...but do we do it?  WITH FIDELITY?  I think that is often where it breaks down. These strategies need to be a part of EVERY lesson...EVERY day. They become highly effective when they are implemented consistently and intentionally.  With all teachers are required to do, it is easy to lose focus on intentionally using these effective strategies.

Alfio Gangemi's curator insight, May 24, 8:38 PM

This is probably the best resource I have found for a pre-service and graduate teacher. As the title says it outlines the top ten evidence based teaching strategies and clearly describes each strategy and how and why they are effective. Very useful resource!.

Steve Whitmore's curator insight, May 27, 9:39 AM

Which of these strategies could you incorporate into your therapeutic groups?  How do you think they might be helpful? 

 

When you observe students in classrooms, do you see evidence of these practices?

overwhelming to see how tools have taken over our lives..Interesting how tools are  perceived to be the magic mantra in solving most of our business problems!

Teacher Rose's curator insight, August 2, 5:46 AM

 

 

If you are looking for a bird's eye view on what alternative collaboration tools are now available for different kind of projects and purposes, I do have what you are looking for.

 

The new Best Online Collaboration Tools 2014 directory is now public. It contains over 370 collaboration tools organized in over 25 different categories ranging from video-conferencing to screen-sharing, collaborative reviewing and many more.

 

The tools listed have all been checked and verified and represent my own personal census on what is available today for each one of the categories listed. There is no attempt (yet) to provide individual evaluations or recommendations, though I have tried to subjectively rank tools in each category according to their value and importance.

 

 

The directory is updated weekly.

New suggestions, comments and request for revisions and changes are highly welcome.

 

Free to use.

 

Try it out now: https://best-online-collaboration-tools.zeef.com/robin.good (370+ tools)

Top 10 Tech Tips for Teachers #SketchNote - @shakeuplearning @SylviaDuckworth

Top 10 Tech Tips for Teachers #SketchNote - @shakeuplearning @SylviaDuckworth | Medical Education Canada | Scoop.it
I am super excited to share this update with you! My Top Ten Tech Tips for Successful Technology Integration were originally shared last July (2014). These are the tips that I often refer to when helping teachers dip their toes into the technology integration waters. It's easy to become overwhelmed by technology and planning. These tips will make the process so much easier!

Today, I'm honored to share a sketch version of my tips by the fabulously talented Sylvia Duckworth! (She makes me look good! ;))
