Great resource!

Howard Fulfrost's curator insight, January 28, 1:24 PM

This is a comprehensive article that includes 40+ incredibly fun internet-based tools.  


The author writse:  "Some of the animation links ... will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students."  Ultimately, "[e]ducators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense."

I love to teach in this time.  Nothing to do with teaching in the old days.  However, even today there are professors that resist to make the change.

Kim Phillips shares the 12 Most Striking Tendencies of Creative People.

 

Ever wonder what makes those wacky, creative types tick? How is it that some people seem to come up with all kinds of interesting, original work while the rest of us trudge along in our daily routines?

 

Creative people are different because they operate a little differently.

I have wondered about this subject myself.   Then, I reflect on my own reasons for becoming a teacher and I have never regretted my decision.   However, with the continuous pressure to test, build student's test taking skills and rearrange curriculum standards, I better understand the rationale.  Hopefully, with articles such as this one and more dialogue among teachers some recourse can be discovered.
