So many great websites to explore on your own time. I like the concepts behind "Wait But Why" and several others in which students are challenged by real-life situations and hypothetical instances.
Jamie Dammann's curator insight, October 25, 2015 8:22 PM

Technology: I chose this resource because this gives teachers actual websites that they can go to in order to integrate technology into the classroom. My hope is that I can use this resource to pass on to our schools that are getting new interactive boards into their classrooms this school year.

Creativity | Psychology Today

Creativity | Psychology Today | PL Moving Forward | Scoop.it
Even those of us not in explicitly creative fields must come up with new ideas and insights in order to move ahead. How can we shake up our thinking patterns? Creativity has been pegged to conducive environments, perfect collaborators, personality traits, serendipity, and even spiritual muses. While research psychologists are interested in increasing innovative thinking, clinical psychologists sometimes encourage patients to use artistic expression as a way to confront difficult feelings.
Lisa Burkhalter's insight:

Great list of articles about creativity.

Ellen Dougherty's curator insight, August 1, 2015 11:52 AM

If you were to put together 12 rules that make a teacher a great teacher what would they include? Sit back and think about that, and then look at this post by Terry Heick, where he shares the rules he has come up with as well as the reasons for the rule. A few are listed above, and three more are below.

* Start small.

* In learning, curiosity is everything.

* Help students ask great questions.

Click through to the post to read through all his rules and find a bonus of three additional rules that you may want to add. You will also find links for resources for three of the rules.

With the popular explosion of Minecraft among middle schoolers and beyond, it’s worth noting that it isn’t the only open world virtual environment with educational value. Nor is it always the most ideal game for teaching every concept, leading other games are picking up the slack. As a result, inspired educators and students are taking notice and branching out.

How Can Your Librarian Help Bolster Brain-Based Teaching Practices? - Mind/Shift

How Can Your Librarian Help Bolster Brain-Based Teaching Practices? - Mind/Shift | PL Moving Forward | Scoop.it
nquiry-based learning has been around in education circles for a long time, but many teachers and schools gradually moved away from it during the heyday of No Child Left Behind. The pendulum is beginning to swing back towards an inquiry-based approach to instruction thanks to standards such as Common Core State Standards for math and English Language Arts, the Next Generation Science Standards and the College, Career and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards. Transitioning to this style of teaching requires students to take a more active role and asks teachers to step back into a supportive position. It can be a tough transition for many students and their teachers, but turning to the school librarian for support could make the transition a little easier.

5 Movement Strategies That Get Students Thinking

5 Movement Strategies That Get Students Thinking | PL Moving Forward | Scoop.it

"Each day more research confirms the link between movement and learning. Brain researcher David Sousa claims that physical activity increases the amount of oxygen in our blood, and this oxygen is related to enhanced learning and memory. A recent Washington Post article suggests that many student behaviors we associate with ADHD may stem from an overall lack of physical movement  – both in and out of school. In addition, a phenomenally popular blog post by Alexis Wiggins recently touched upon how much sitting students actually do every day, and how all that sitting affects energy levels and learning."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 28, 2015 9:19 PM

What would happen if you incorporated more movement in your classroom, providing students opportunities to get up from their seat and physically move their body? Based on current brain research you may find your students more engaged in their learning. This post provides five suggestions on activities you can incorporate into lessons to allow students opportunities to move. What are they?

1. Gallery Walks/Chalk Talks

2. White Board Meetings

3. North Pole-South Pole/Continuum

4. Musical Mingle

5.  Stations

Each is explained in detail in the post. Do you have ideas on how movement can be incorporated into lessons? If so, share them in the comment section.
