There is so much great information on the Internet for teachers looking to learn about educational technology, best practices and new ideas.  I am a huge fan of Twitter and use it to connect with my personal learning network.

Marcine Adams's insight:

This looks like a great way to have articles not get lost on my twitter feed. I think that pinterest and other sites are great for ideas, but we have yet to find a website that could save articles.

Finding My Voice as a Minority Teacher - Hybrid Pedagogy

Marcine Adams's insight:

This is a horrible case of how we hide who were are from our students. I believe there is this stigma identity that comes with being a teacher that we must keep our distance and be put on this pedestal where our students shouldn't even know let alone call us by our first names. I believe Mr. Friend is one of my teachers who should be supported by the educational community and help students understand that everyone is different from one another. Our differences should be celebrate not critized like society currently does.

Marcine Adams's insight:

I believe more parents will be opting out of their students taking the exam once they realize that the test is not benefiting their child. I believe that it is unfair to set our teachers up for failure when the modules and resources to prepare students are not even available yet. If we are going to use these test to rank or score our teachers/students they should be prepared to succeed not fail. More teachers, administrators, and parents to be informed.

SpeEdChange: Changing Pedagogy vs. Teacher Identity

SpeEdChange: Changing Pedagogy vs. Teacher Identity | teacher identity | Scoop.it

Ira Socol raises a question in this post, asking if teachers want to move from being "replicators to design thinkers...(to) move our focus from the needs of those who work in schools to the needs of those for whom school exists...to understand that 'user experience' of school from the perspective of those students for whom it is not working." 

With detailed explanations, links to a variety of resources, and a look at current brain research Socol asks that you look at the job of teaching from what may be a different lens that you have in the past. Once again, Socol has provided a thought provoking article.

Marcine Adams's insight:

This article reminds everyone of what our educational system was once based on, and the system does not work. Our old system and pedagogies view students on an assembly line thinking that's the fast track to career ready students.Change is necessary, but what type of change is controversial. We need to prepare students to be 21st century learners but until we can cleary define what that means our system is somewhat overwhelming and chaotic.
