Description of Global Learning Circles on the International Education and Resource Network
Sherri Malget's insight:

This was an acrostic poem that I found at this website.  I really liked it.

 

Compassion is caring deep enough about the trouble of other people that you do something to help them.

 

C—Caring for those who are hurt

 

O—Open your heart to those in need

 

M—Make time to listen to those in sorrow

 

P—Pass on the kindness to others

 

A—Actions speak louder than words

 

S—Smile when someone needs one

 

S—Sympathize with others and their troubles

 

I—Include others who are left out

 

O—Offer to help someone who is sad

 

N—Necessary for a peaceful world

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great iPad Manual for Every Teacher ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Shadow Oaks Elementary Library | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago I posted here a poster on iPad basics which many of you have downloaded to use with their students in the class. Today, I am sharing with you another great resource on iPad. This is not a graphic but a quick reference card on everything you and your students need to know about iPad. From the hardware to networking features , this little manual can serve as a leading guide to a better manipulation of  your iPad.
 I am not sure how much iPading you are doing in your classroom but whether you use iPad just occasionally or you adopt it as a consistent learning and teaching tool,  the reference card below will definitely give you a hand in improving your iPad use. I suggest that you share it with your students and go through it with them section by section and make sure they understand it before they start using their iPads again.

Most people on scoop-it! won't need this, but it is great for students or technologically challenged.

This is a great resource for beginners.  An iPad basic cheat sheet.

Famous Quotes About Children

Famous Quotes About Children | Shadow Oaks Elementary Library | Scoop.it
A collection of famous quotes about children from Barbara Bush, Dr. Seuss, Herbert Hoover, Brad Pitt and others.
Sherri Malget's insight:
Bono, lead singer of U2

"God is in the slums, in the cardboard boxes where the poor play house. God is in the silence of a mother who has infected her child with a virus that will end both their lives. God is in the cries heard under the rubble of war. God is in the debris of wasted opportunity and lives, and God is with us if we are with them."
